"I am writing this review solely for the purpose of refuting the previous reviewers remarks about Kenny Dorham and his music. Kenny Dorham and the work he did on Blue Note in particular represent the most original and beautiful jazz writing... ever. The fact that he isn't singing on any of the tracks (he did a couple of albums featuring his voice) should not dissuade anyone from buying this disc; along with being a great writer, he has a very interesting and appealing approach to the trumpet, and played with some of the greats of the Bop and Hard-Bop eras -- including Charlie Parker and Sonny Rollins.
On this disc there is a good sampling of the ground breaking work he did with Joe Henderson in the early 60's, as well as cuts from Whistle Stop and Afro-Cuban. I recommend this disc highly for anyone interested in exposing themselves to a very cerebral writer/trumpet player."
