Description

McKinley Howard "Kenny" Dorham (1924–1972) was an American jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer. Dorham's talent is frequently lauded by critics and other musicians, but he never received the kind of attention or public recognition from the jazz establishment that many of his peers did. Dorham was one of the most active bebop trumpeters. He played in the big bands of Lionel Hampton, Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie and the Charlie Parker quintet. He joined Parker's band in December 1948, he was also a member of the original Jazz Messengers. He also recorded as a sideman with Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins and he replaced Clifford Brown in the Max Roach Quintet. In addition to sideman work, Dorham led his own groups, including the Jazz Prophets. Afrodisia is a track on his critically acclaimed Afro-Cuban album, first released in 1955 as a 10" vinyl record, it featured only four tracks and had different cover artwork. Sometime later, Blue Note Records decided to add further tracks and issue a more complete LP in May 1957.
