Description
 
A major trumpeter who emerged in the mid-1940s next to Dizzy Gillespie, Fats Navarro and Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham was an easily recognizable, personal and very skilled bop soloist for 25 years. In a colorful career that found him sharing the bandstand with Charlie Parker, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Sonny Rollins, Dorham not only became active in hard bop and developed into one of its most important leaders.

A major talent scout, for 1963's Una Mas, Dorham not only helps introduce Joe Henderson (a regular member of his quintet) but features Herbie Hancock and Tony Williams before they joined Miles Davis. Throughout one of his most exciting recordings, Dorham performs three of his best originals (including "Una Mas") and "If Ever I Would Leave You" with fire, inspiration and lyrical beauty. On this superbly recorded reissue, a special bonus is the alternate version of "If Ever I Would Leave You."

Like all Music Matters Jazz releases, this audiophile vinyl reissue is mastered from the original analog tape and pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at RTI in Camarillo, CA. The highest quality gatefold cover features original session photography on the inside.
