Composer of “Blue Bossa,” one of the most popular jazz standards of all time, trumpeter Kenny Dorham (1924-1972) was a rather neglected and little-known figure during his lifetime. Decades later, not much has changed. Greatly overshadowed by the stardom of Dizzy Gillespie, Clifford Brown and Fats Navarro, this underrated bebop giant was nevertheless a highly talented musician who performed with some of the most remarkable players of the era. He recorded with Bud Powell; was a regular member of the Charlie Parker quintet (they toured Paris) and replaced the late Clifford Brown in the Max Roach quintet in 1956. Presented here is his splendid quintet LP Inta Somethin’, on which he shares the frontline with alto saxophonist Jackie McLean, with whom he would collaborate on two further occasions, the 1962 LPs Matador and Hipnosis.
