Recorded by FREDDIE HUBBARD & WOODY SHAW on DOUBLE TAKE
Blue Note: CDP 7 46294 2 / Recorded November 22, 1985
This now-classic recording of two trumpet giants, Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw, paid tribute to many of the great trumpet players who came before them. KENNY DORHAM's composition Lotus Blossom was a unanimous choice: both men remembered KD's own two recordings, as well as Max Roach's. More trumpet player tributes from these two giants (Boperation and Reets & I)
are in the SEXTET section.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part:Trumpet, Alto Sax (Baritone Sax), Tenor Sax, Trombone
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar
This challenging uptempo swing chart demands tight interaction between the front line and the rhythm section. This is an excellent vehicle to show off a tight, well-rehearsed group.
SOLOS: very idiomatic bebop changes which include II-V and IIm7b5-Vs.

KENNY DORHAM (1924-1972). A founding member of The Jazz Messengers, along with Art Blakey, Horace Silver and Hank Mobley, Kenny replaced Clifford Brown in Max Roach's Quintet in 1956. Prior to that, he played with Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Eckstine and was part of Charlie Parker's group in 1948-1949. In the 1950s and '60s he made nearly 2 dozen records as a leader, including such Blue Note classics as "Whistle Stop," "Una Mas," and "Trompeta Toccata" (each with compositions of the same name), with sidemen including Joe Henderson, Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Hank Jones and Art Taylor. He later studied music at the graduate level at NYU and wrote film scores. His compositions, including Fair Weather, Lotus Blossom, Prince Albert and Blue Bossa, have been recorded by Clark Terry, Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard, Art Farmer, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Don Friedman, J.J. Johnson, Jimmy Heath, McCoy Tyner, Lou Donaldson, George Benson and by most of his former sidemen, among others.
