TROMPETA TOCCATA (180G LP)
12" Vinyl D
Blue Note 80 reissue of the 1965 album from Kenny Dorham. Remastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Kenny Dorham’s 1964 album Trompeta Toccata would be the final album that the great underrated trumpeter and composer would record as a leader, and it stands as a fitting testament to his prodigious talent. The album featured a stellar quintet with Dorham and his frequent collaborator Joe Henderson on tenor saxophone along with pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath. The brilliant album cover design by Reid Miles featured the bold typography that made his style so influential. [info sheet from distr.]
