Originally on the Time label, this LP features the excellent (but always underrated) trumpeter Kenny Dorham heading a quintet that also includes baritonist Charles Davis, pianist Steve Kuhn, either Jimmy Garrison or Butch Warren on bass, and drummer Buddy Enlow. The results are not quite essential but everyone plays up to par, performing three of Dorham’s originals plus “In Your Own Sweet Way,” “Monk’s Mood,” and “This Love of Mine.” It’s fine hard bop, the modern mainstream music of the period.
