Trumpeter Kenny Dorham and tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson "Live In Queens-1963"

Trumpeter Kenny Dorham had to live with the term "underrated" for most of his life but he was anything but. Now considered one of the leading lights of Modern jazz trumpet along with Miles, Dizzy, Fats and Brownie......"K.D's" place in Jazz is now assured. This date has just been discovered and it's a fine broadcast recording from the morning of January 15,1963 and it marks the first documented evidence of a great musical partnership between Dorham and the young Joe Henderson, one of the great masters of the tenor saxophone. They went on to record many great classic Blue Note dates under the leadership of one or the other. Dorham and Henderson are aided by a fine rhythm section with the reliable Ronnie Mathews on piano and Steve Davis on bass and J.C.(John Curtis)Moses on drums. The tunes are mostly standards but Dorham's great tune "Una Mas" (aka "My Injun From Brazil")is heard in an early version.The MC is Alan Grant who was a good friend of Jazz. The set has inspired playing throughout and shows all at their best. Kenny Dorham and Joe Henderson!
