The third disc contains two more Riverside dates, Jazz Contrasts from 1957 and Blue Spring from 1959. Disc four begins in 1959 with the ballad collection Quiet Kenny on New Jazz and ends with a lesser-known 1960 date for the Time imprint entitled Jazz Contemporary. These four discs contain remastered versions of the original albums and some bonus material from their individual reissues. Taken as a whole, this set offers solid proof of Dorham's many gifts as composer, arranger, and bandleader, though he was often overlooked at the time.
