Lovely music!

This beautiful album was recorded on September 16 and 17 - Kenny Burrell, a true giant of mainstream and moderately modern jazz guitar really shines here in the illustrious company of Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums.

Some of the songs are really swinging, some are beautifully sad, some are pretty darn modern, but the general feeling of the album would be - in my interpretation - warm.
The cozy tone of the leader's guitar really enriches his fanciful soloist flights as well as the numbers where the rest of the trio has a larger role.

Initially issued on LP in 1960, the album was re-released in 1966 under the title "Man at Work", with really beautiful photo by Don Brownstein reproduced inside the cd's package (the cover photo of Burrell, taken from the original edition , is by Chuck Stewart). Actually, my only problem with this lovely CD is that the original liner notes - printed twice, are too small even for a fellow with a normal eye-sight... Keeping the cover art was smart, but the backside of LP is not visually interesting enough to compensate for too small letters.

If you like jazz-guitar or mainstream jazz, you should get this album, to hear fresh and convincing versions of various standards (f. i. Ellington-Strayhorn's "Just a sittin' and a-rockin'", Monk's "Well, You Needn't") as well as some less often performed songs.

This album from precedes some of his more famous albums e.g. Midnight Blue (1967) or the many excellent albums that he made later with Jimmy Smith, and even later his tribute to Ellington albums. It was recorded over a couple of evenings in September 1959 playing in concert supported by bass player Richard Davis and drummer Roy Haynes.
I like "live" recordings, and on this trio album there is lots of opportunity to admire the skill of Kenny as the first rate guitarist that he is.
However, above all, it is an entertaining album of eight tunes, all approachable and accessible and mostly well known, especially the final three tracks "Soft Winds", "Just A Sittin' and a Rockin'" and Monk's "Well, You Needn't".
Not an album that breaks any barriers, just a record of three jazz musicians doing what they were paid to do: to entertain and audience with engaging music skilfully played.

This is a brilliant CD with the Kenny Burrell Trio shining all the way through it was recorded in 1959 but this is not dated at all, The recordings are brilliant for the time and it's got a great late night feel to it. So if you have had a hard days work then relax late at night with a glass or two and listen to this great CD

Fretmaster Burrell at the top of his game. Probably the most tasteful and elegant of all jazz guitarists, a consummate player who can be enjoyed by fans of all types of music.

Swinging, warm, sad, modern 13 Oct. 2008
By Nikica Gilic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lovely music!

This beautiful album was RECORDED on September 16 and 17 (not originally released as the data on the amazon claimed at the time I wrote this review)- Kenny Burrell, a true giant of mainstream and moderately modern jazz guitar really shines here in the illustrious company of Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums.

Some of the songs are really swinging, some are beautifully sad, some are pretty darn modern, but the general feeling of the album would be - in my interpretation - warm. The cozy tone of the leader's guitar really enriches his fanciful solo flights as well as the numbers where the rest of the trio has a larger role.

Actually, my only problem with this lovely CD is that the original liner notes - printed twice, are too small even for a reasonably young fellow with a normal eye-sight... Keeping the cover art was smart, but the backside of LP is not visually interesting enough to compensate for too small letters.

If you like jazz-guitar or mainstream jazz, you should get this album, to hear fresh and convincing versions of various standards (f. i. Ellington-Strayhorn's "Just a sittin' and a-rockin'", Monk's "Well, You Needn't") as well as some less often performed songs.

Kenny Burrell has one of the most beautiful,warm,exquisite tones in the history of the guitar.This CD,which just showed up recently,rises to and even surpasses the level of Midnight Blue.Its recorded live and just cooks.Listen to those samples and I am sure you will catch my drift!A must listen and have for any jazz or any music lover.

Kenny in his prime 9 Dec. 2008
By Mary Philipsek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Back in the early seventies when I was still a teen Kenny Burrell played the college in my hometown. I already played guitar but hearing him inspired me to play jazz. All of these years later I am still a jazz guitarist with many albums of my own and I owe Kenny Burrell a debt of gratitude for that early inspriration.
At any rate, I thought I had heard most of Mr. Burrell's records but I had not come across this one until I saw it's re-issue this year on amazon. It is wonderful. I love the live recording warmth and his playing (he is only 28 at the time) captures him in his prime.
I would now recommend to anyone that they start their Burrell collection here with this record. Also, it was recorded live in the world's oldest and in my opinion best jazz club- the Vanguard.

At his best! 2 Dec. 2008
By Jeffrey M. Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is my favorite Burrell album, and the best example you will find of his smooth jazz/cool bop (whatever) playing. Great song selection, and the rhythm section is the best of any of his albums, in my opinion. The mix is slightly drum heavy, which would be annoying with a lesser drummer, but Roy Haynes is amazingly musical. You need this CD if you are a Burrell fan...even if you don't own "Midnight Blue", this should be purchased prior to that one. This CD represents everything that is great in Kenny Burrell's playing and in jazz guitar in general!

Finally found it! 2 Mar. 2014
By larry hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a jazz fan, a guitarist, and a long-time fan of the great Kenny Burrell, I have had the original LP release (Man at Work /Cadet LPS-769) for many years, . Alongside of Richard Davis and Roy Haynes, this release is a true gem. I have looked for it for years, and was always dismayed that it had not yet been reissued on CD. So for some reason, it has been renamed-- which will forever obscure it from those who have been looking for it as I have. At any rate... this is Kenny Burrell with as great a back up as you can imagine (not counting the great Jimmy Smith and Grady Tate: a wholly different bag). Relaxed, hip, and always swinging, this is Kenny at his finest.
