Biography:
Birth Name: McKinley Howard Dorham
Born: 1924/08/30
Birth Place: Fairfield, Texas
Died: 1972/12/05
Genres: Bebop, Mainstream Jazz, Hard Bop

McKinley Howard (Kenny) Dorham (August 30, 1924 - December 5, 1972) was an American jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer born in Fairfield, Texas. Dorham's talent is frequently lauded by critics and other musicians, but he never received the kind of attention from the jazz establishment that many of his peers did. For this reason, his name has become (in the words of writer Gary Giddins) "virtually synonymous with ''underrated''." He also composed the jazz standard "Blue Bossa," which appears on Joe Henderson's album ''Page One''.
