A cycling expedition this morning found me in cattle country. As I pulled over to enjoy the bucolic scene, who should pop into my mind but Kenny Dorham. A native Texan who spent considerably more time with his trumpet than with cows, Dorham recorded a piece with a title that allowed him, by implication, to stake a claim to membership in a storied profession.
In other words, this was a good excuse to play you a KD track. With him are Tommy Flanagan, piano; Charles Davis, baritone saxophone; Butch Warren, bass; and Buddy Enlow, drums.
From The Arrival Of Kenny Dorham, recorded in 1960 for Jaro Records and reissued here.
