Kenny Dorham Una Mas
Recorded in 1963, Una Mas was the first album to feature the dynamic frontline of trumpeter Kenny Dorham and tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, a potent team that would go on to collaborate on numerous classic albums under each musicianâ€™s name including Hendersonâ€™s debut album Page One which was recorded just 2 months later. Along with a tremendous rhythm section of Herbie Hancock on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Tony Williams on drums, the quintet delivers joyous performances of 3 Dorham originals including the irrepressible title track, â€œStraight Ahead,â€ and â€œSao Paolo.â€ The striking album cover design by Reid Miles is a brilliant example of the designerâ€™s creative use of Francis Wolffâ€™s session photos. This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
