This uptempo swing arrangement has a challenging melody line for the 1st and 2nd part players. Kenny's ingenious introduction leads right into the A section of the melody, so you're not really aware of where the melody starts.
SOLOS: The chord progression is the first 16 measures of Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson's Tune Up. There are two different backgrounds, depending on the soloist.
Kenny Dorham/Round About Midnight At The Cafe Bohemia (Capitol 81524)
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.
