Kenny Dorham

“Cool and understated might be better watchwords for what the ultra-melodic Dorham achieves on this undeniably well crafted set of standards and originals that is close to containing his best work overall during a far too brief career… Never known as a boisterous or brash player, but also not a troubadour of romanticism… Dorham’s music is also far from complacent, and this recording established him as a Top Five performer in jazz on his instrument.”

Michael G. Nastos, Allmusic
