Late night music, sit in a room with shaded lights, somebody warm to cuddle up to....Midnight won't be blue for you!
I first heard of Kenny Burrell 30+ years ago when I was a RAF wireless technician in Berlin. I heard the AFRS radio station playing something of his, 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 PX stores either, but there was a fairly large selection of record shops in Berlin and so I found an LP. It cost me about three times what it would have cost to buy a Rock LP from the NAAFI and about 4 times what it would have cost me to buy it in the American PX, and It turned out to be an acoustic performance,. Not what I was expecting. But I still have the LP (Black Vinyl - remember those?)
However on this new disc I got what I was looking for - Laid back jazz and lovely it is - not smooth Jazz, but it was real cool jazz. What's the difference?. I guess it's in the timing and the drums.
It really does make a change. I love it and I will be getting more
AFRS = American Forces Radio station ,NAAFI = Naval, army, and Air forces Institute, a kind of multiple store, every base had more that one, Berlin had many , but there was one Large department store in the city.A bit like a kind of like one of the bigger stores you would once have found in a big city. PX= US forces Personnel exchange store similar to the NAAFI.
