Favorite Guitarist

Kenny Burrell a leader and sideman for 40 years, known as “Ellingtons favorite Guitarist” appearing on several hundred albums. kenny-burrell-21A few albums that are classics of his are, the 1967 Midnight Blue album he did for Blue Note. This features Stanley Turrentine on tenor, a masterpiece of a album. The Rudy Van Gelder remaster is fantastic. Kenny Burrell and John Coltrane the 1958 Prestige album is another classic, a duet album full of sensitivity instead of heavy blowing. The playing is excellent by all means, own it. Finally I have to say A Night At The Vanguard a 1959 Verve session that’s a trio set with Richard Davis on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. This is a great example of Jazz guitar in a “Live” Jazz club setting.
