Kenny Dorham Quintet on Vinyl

More vinyl listening pleasure with what many feel is a classic recording by the Kenny Dorham Quintet.   Originally on Debut Records (now part of the Fantasy empire) this recording was done in New York on December 1953.  It conveys a certain amount of elegance that makes the afternoon go slower.  It's very graceful and tasteful and it is sort of a strong cocktail, where you have to dip into it with a certain amount of style.

The label Debut, was started by Charles Mingus with the help of the great drummer Max Roach.  Sort of the do-it-yourself aesthetic, but every release had a killer cover.
