Windmill – Kenny Dorham

Don Sickler: I remember in 1983 telling Jimmy Heath that I wanted us to record Windmill on my K.D. album. He was ecstatic! Jimmy always thought that was one of Kenny's absolutely slickest heads. It's one of Dorham's most subtle and intricate songs, based on Sweet Georgia Brown changes. Our "K.D. Challenge" version has Minus You tracks for all instruments.
