Quiet Kenny is yet another reminder of what a trumpet giant Kenny Durham was. Whether limning ballads such as "My Ideal," "Alone Together," "I Had The Craziest Dream" and "Old Folks," or investigating the timelessness and intricacies of the blues (his originals in thisset with "blue" in their titles), the former Charlie Parker cohort and ex-Jazz Messenger exhibits his subtle swing, personal sound, and finely-honored harmonic sense. Along the way these refections and connections with Bird, Coleman Hawkins, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Harry James and Louis Armstrong make for a rich legacy. (This reissue contains a bonus track, "Mack The Knife." that was left off the original master.) (Songs include: "Lotus Blossom," "My Ideal," "Blue Friday," "Alone Together" "Blue Spring Shuffle," "I Had The Craziest Dream," "Old Folks" and "Mack The Knife." With Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers, Arthur Taylor.
