American jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer whose talent is frequently lauded by critics and other musicians, although he never received the kind of attention or public recognition from the jazz establishment that many of his peers did. Dorham composed the jazz standard "Blue Bossa", which first appeared on Joe Henderson's album Page One. During his final years Dorham suffered from kidney disease, from which he died on 5 December 1972, aged 48.
