Kenny Dorham - Matador (Vinyl LP)

PRODUCT DETAILS

Details: Sometimes in the course of our exploration of potential titles to reissue, we come across a true gem that somehow escaped mainstream popularity. Our new all-analog HQ-180 of Matador by trumpeter Kenny Dorham and his quintet is the latest and perhaps most crystalline example of this. There has never been a single 180-gram pressing available. It has only been reissued (officially) once in 50 years. When you hear it, you'll scratch your head raw that this under-appreciated gem has been missing for so long. Recorded in a single day in 1962, Matador contains the sprawling epic McLean-penned "Melanie" (a suite in three parts), as well as Dorham's smoldering "El Matador" and a stirring take on "Beautiful Love". Throughout the session, Timmons, Smith, and Moses provide sublime support while Dorham and McLean trade sinewy solos. Emotional musical exploration ties to readily approachable post-bop structure that make for a snappy, yet heady, mix of tunes that put a tap in your foot while engaging your head and heart. Numbered, Limited Edition. Audiophile 33rpm 180g Vinyl LP. Mastered by Chris Bellman from the original analog master tapes. Original single disc jacket with ribbed paper tip-on over heavy-board stock. Pressed at RTI.

  1. El Matador
  2. Melanie - Part 1
  3. Melanie - Part 2
  4. Melanie - Part 3
  5. Smile
  6. Beautiful Love
