Product Description:

Personnel: Kenny Dorham (trumpet); Cannonball Adderley (alto saxophone); Cecil Payne (baritone saxophone); David Amram (French horn); Cedar Walton (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Jimmy Cobb, Philly Joe Jones (drums).
Recorded at Reeves Sound Studios, New York, New York on January 20 and February 18, 1959. Originally released on Riverside (1139). Includes original liner notes by Orrin Keepnews.
Digitally remastered by David Luke (1990, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
In lieu of picking up one of the trumpeter's fine Blue Note releases (Una Mas, Whistle Stop), listeners new to the work of Kenny Dorham should definitely consider this somewhat overlooked Riverside date from 1959. The set features plenty of Dorham's varied and sophisticated horn work and four of his top-drawer originals. The theme is spring, and Dorham responds with his soon to be jazz standard "Spring Is Here" and three other fine seasonal tributes: the title track, "Poetic Spring," and "Spring Cannon." This last cut is also a tribute to Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, who guests in fine style here with a bevy of fleet and highly melodic solos. Rounding out the group, baritone saxophonist Cecil Payne, French horn player David Amram, and pianist Cedar Walton add very nicely to the album's breezy yet provocative air. Essential listening for Dorham fans. ~ Stephen Cook
