Kenny Dorham was a master of the jazz trumpet, a master composer and arranger, and a master of the art of intense communication thru understated beauty. The tone he had on the horn was in many ways stronger and fuller than Clifford Brown's, and his sound harkened back to the days of pre-bop trumpet players without sounding corny. The largeness of his sound seemed to grow within itself in richness and vitality, rather than spread with the effusive joy of Lee Morgan.

Afro-Cuban features stellar performances by JJ Johnson, Horace Silver, Hank Mobley Cecil Payne, Oscar Pettiford and Art Blakey make listening to this record an unforgettable experience.

The first release of the album Afro-Cuban dates back to 1955 on 10" Vinyl, featuring only four tracks and having a different cover artwork. Some time later, Blue Note decided to add three tracks and issue a more complete LP toward the end of May 1957.

Authentic vinyl reissue produced by Blue Note Records in 2014 for their 'Blue Note 75' campaign.
