This week, Jazzy Paper Designs is featuring Kenny Dorham's Trompeta Toccata, recorded in 1964. Kenny was an an American jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer. (1924 to 1972). Universally admired and respected by his peers and fellow trumpeters, Dorham worked with every major figure of the modern jazz movement--Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and Max Roach. He was only 48 when he died of medical problems. There is now a "school" of Dorham trumpet playing. Here is a sample of his music on YouTube.
Aren't the colors of this album fun?!?! I have to admit, I wasn't too sure if I could pull it off, but I am happy with the combo after all! To make the Dahlia, I cased a card I found on Becca Feeken's blog. (She is soooo amazing) And Here is where you can find the instructions to make your own Dahlia. The sentiment is by Hero Arts. The center of my Dahlia is made with pretty pieces by Taylored Expressions.
Be sure to join in on the fun this week! We have a wonderful prize offering to the winner sponsored by one of our talented DT members, Betty!
