Considered Kenny Dorham's finest recording of his all-too-short career, this re-reissue has been newly remastered and presumably now includes all of the takes from these nonet and sextet sessions of 1955. Considering the time period, this date remains way ahead of the Latin-tinged and hard bop music that would follow. It would be difficult to assess the sextet being a step below the larger group effort, but only because it is much less Afro-Cuban

The second half is mainstream jazz in nature and drops Valdez for a more mainstream feel. Also on the second half, . Johnson is not present, and Pettiford is replaced by Heath on bass. It's like two different albums in one, but ALL of it is great. This album has the debut version of Dorhams famous (relatively speaking of course) "Lotus Flower" and an alternate, previously unreleased alternate take of "Minor's Holiday".
