There was a blank space against these albums. Not very helpful. So, maybe this will assist:

This box set includes these 8 classic albums remastered: `Kenny Dorham Quintet', `Afro Cuban', `Round About Midnight', `2 Horns 2 Rhythm', `Jazz Contrasts', `Blue Spring', `Quiet Kenny', & `Jazz Contemporary'.

Recording information: Cafe Bohemia, New York, NY (01/30/1955-11/13/1959); New York, NY (01/30/1955-11/13/1959); Rudy Van Gelder Studio (01/30/1955-11/13/1959); Cafe Bohemia, New York, NY (11/23/1955); New York, NY (11/23/1955); Rudy Van Gelder Studio (11/23/1955); Cafe Bohemia, New York, NY (12/15/1953-02/12/1960); New York, NY (12/15/1953-02/12/1960); Rudy Van Gelder Studio (12/15/1953-02/12/1960).

There are many serious problems with this release. Four of the eight albums have been mutilated/truncated. On "2 Horns/2 Rhythm", Sposin' has been eliminated. On "Jazz Contrasts", I Remember April is cut abruptly 1 minute early. On "Blue Spring", Passion Spring is faded 1 minute early. On "Quiet Kenny", Lotus Blossom is deleted. If you want the complete classic albums, you won't find them here. Discs in my set were defective as well.

Bresson and DG have written good reviews but there is no track listing.

The set features 8 classic albums with 2 on each of the 4 CDs.
But the Cds do not list the albums contained on them

BUT the great news is that there is now a volume Two too

Here's a link to it

This is an excellent box set and represents superb value for money. Kenny Dorham was unlucky to be contemporary with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Clifford Brown but this album only serves to confirm what a brilliant artiste he was. All of the tracks are of the highest quality and the supporting musicians could hardly be better as they include such luminaries as Sonny Rollins, Cannonball Adderley, J.J.Johnson and Hank Jones amongst others. Dorham's playing is of the highest quality throughout. He was equally at home on up-tempo numbers and ballads and demonstrates an astonishingly accomplished mastery of technique and emotion throughout. An interesting inclusion is the set in which he plays with a piano-less small group, showing that Gerry Mulligan was not the only musician thinking along these lines. I can recommend this outstanding Box Set with no reservations whatsoever.
