I first heard of Kenny Burrell 30+ years ago when I was a RAF wireless technician in Berlin. I heard him playing something on the AFRS* radio station, and made a mental note to check him out. There was no chance of getting a record from the NAAFI* stores and I couldn't find anything in the US stores either, but there was a fairly large selection of shops in the city so I found a copy and bought it. It cost me about three times what it would have cost to buy a rock record from the NAAFI and about 4 times what it would have cost me to buy it in the American store, and it was an acoustic performance as well. Not what I was expecting. But I still have the LP (Black Vinyl - remember those?) But with this disc I got what I was looking for - Laid back jazz and lovely it is - not smooth Jazz it was real cool jazz with variable time signatures, It really does make a change. I love it and I will be getting more
Do yourself a favour. Sit on your favourite chair with a large Scotch on the rocks, tell everyone around you to clear off so you can slip into a world of rhythm and melody. The whole experience will make you feel glad for being alive. My 15 year old listened to this and he was gently swaying and he didnt even know it. Kenny Burrell you are an absolute gem!!
