✨✧ Kenny BurrellHandcrafted ... LP
Muse, 1978. Very Good ... $6.99
An obscure little session from Kenny Burrell – recorded at the end of the 70s, and with a very laidback feel! The set was produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets – and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's got Kenny playing in a trio format that's very spacious – with only gentle accompaniment from Reggie Johnson on bass and Sherman Ferguson on drums, and most of the sound on the set coming from the strings of Kenny's guitar. Following in the gentle spirit of the set, Kenny even plays an acoustic guitar on 2 numbers – making for a very different sound than usual. Some tracks are quite long, really letting Kenny open up on his solos – and titles include "So Little Time", "All Blues", "I'm Glad There Is You", and "You & The Night & The Music".

Kenny BurrellMidnight Blue ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Good+ ... $34.99
Great great stuff – and for some folks, THE album by Kenny Burrell! This classic set features the guitarist in a quintet with Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Major Holly on bass, Bill English on drums, and the great Ray Barretto on conga – a really great lineup that sparkles with soulful imagination, and moves with a very rhythmic groove – thanks to Ray's extra percussion contribution on the bottom! Burrell's guitar somehow seems a bit harder and grittier than ever – and titles include the classic groover "Chittlins Con Carne", an early jazz dance classic – plus "Soul Lament", "Wavy Gravy", and "Mule". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono New York pressing, with deep groove, Van Gelder stamp, BNLP 4123 A/B stamp, and ear. Cover has a half split bottom seam and some pencil on back. Label has some pencil.)

✨✧ Kenny BurrellSoul Call ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kenny Burrell gets the soul call from Prestige Records – the result is one of his grooviest albums of the 60s! The vibe here is nicely mellow – pretty laidback, and almost in the late nite style of some of the Moodsville label dates – with Kenny's guitar ringing out in these beautifully-formed tones – over light rhythms from Will Davis on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Bill English on drums – plus just a little bit of conga from Ray Barretto, which creeps into the groove nicely when it's used. Titles include "Soul Call", "Kenny's Theme", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Kenny's Theme", and "Mark One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny Burrell & Jimmy SmithBlue Bash ... LP
Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great meeting between Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith – and a set that's one of Jimmy's standout small combo sessions for Verve! The feel here is much more Jimmy Smith at Blue Note than some of the bigger group Verve dates of the 60s – and Kenny Burrell's sensitive guitar lines provide wonderful company for Smith on the date – shading in his Hammond lines with a nice sense of color, in ways that really fit the late nite setting of the record. Other players on the date include either Bill English or Mel Lewis on drums, George Duvivier or Milt Hinton on bass, Vince Gambella on guitar, and Art Marotti on percussion – and titles include "Kenny's Sound", "Blues For Del", "Blue Bash", "Travelin", and "Soft Winds".

✨✧ Kenny BurrellWeaver Of Dreams (4LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Columbia/Classic, 1961. Used 4LPs ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest Kenny Burrell albums – and one of the most unusual, too! Unlike other records, on which Kenny just plays guitar – this set has the jazzman also doing a bit of singing, sweetly crooning alongside his instrument with a surprising amount of charm! Burrell's got the feel of some backroom singer in the bebop years – deep-toned and mellow, but still pretty swinging – and the album's a great illustration of this overlooked side of his talents. The group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Bobby Jaspar plays a bit of tenor sax at times – on titles that include "Hootchie Koo", "A Fine Romance", "The Blues Is Awful Mean", "The More I See You", "I'll Buy You A Star", "Afternoon In Paris", and "Weaver Of Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann/Charlie Rouse/K Burrell/M WaldronJust Wailin' ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, 1958. Good+ ... $14.99
Just Wailin is right – as the album's a real cooker in the classic Prestige mode of the late 50s – and a record that shows lots of early bite from a young Herbie Mann! Mann's in the frontline, working alongside the heavy tenor of Charlie Rouse – and in company like that, it's hard not to sound great – especially when other group members include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Mal Waldron on piano, George Joyner on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The album's got a tighter groove than a blowing session date – with lots of focused energy from all group members – yet more than enough breakout solo space for the stars. Titles include "Minor Groove", "Blue Echo", "Blue Dip", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Trinidad", and "Gospel Truth". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansQuintessence ... LP
Fantasy/OJC, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... On April 21, 2017
70s work from Evans, caught not in his typical solo or trio setting, but in an all star quintet that recalls his excellent Interplay sides. Evans is joined by Harold Land, Kenny Burrell, Ray Brown and Philly Joe Jones who offset Evans' contemplative approach beautifully here. 5 numbers in all, including 'Sweet Dulcinea", "Martina", "Second Time Around", "A Child Is Born" and "Bass Face".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar.

Babs GonzalesTales Of Manhattan – The Cool Philosophy Of Babs Gonzales ... LP
Jaro, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the greatest albums ever by the consummate jazz hipster – Babs Gonzales! Babs was part singer, part poet, and part philosophy – working in a jive-heavy style that was filled with inside jokes on the New York jazz scene of the postwar years – and peopled with odd characters from that scene, including musicians, hustlers, hookers, and small-time crooks. Babs speaks and sings on the set, backed by arrangements from Melba Liston, played by a small combo that includes Kenny Burrell, Peck Morrison, and Roy Haynes. The whole thing's great – one of the best blends of hipster jive and jazz ever – and titles include "Dem Resolution Liars", "The Hat Box Chicks", "Dem Jive New Yorkers", "The Squares", and "The Cool Cat's Philosophy".

Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

Johnny Hodges works with some nice small group backing here – only just a bit of organ from Wild Bill Davis, plus more from Ray Jackson, a Hammond player we don't know at all – and other work by Kenny Burrell and Mundell Lowe on guitar, Wendell Marshall and Richard Davis on bass, and Osie Johnson and Bobby Donaldson on drums. Titles include "Mud Pie", "Blues O Mighty", "Tangerine", "Fiddler's Fancy", and "Wisteria". LP, Vinyl record album

Billie HolidayLady Sings the Blues ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light".

✨✧ Illinois JacquetDesert Winds ... LP
Argo, 1964. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An easily-grooving set that features Illinois Jacquet blowing over small combo arrangements with Tommy Flanagan on piano and Kenny Burrell on guitar – plus some added Latin percussion from Willie Rodriguez! The presence of the Latin percussion really adds a nice element to the album – making the tracks dance lightly, in the "conga plus soul jazz" mode that was being employed heavily at the time on labels like Blue Note and Prestige – and in a style that really makes Jacquet hit a few new notes to match the groove! Titles include "Star Eyes", "Blues For The Early Bird", "Lester Leaps In", "Canadian Sunset", and "Desert Winds". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing with deep groove.)

Bev KellyLove Locked Out ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
The first Riverside album by Bev Kelly – an obscure ice-blond singer from the late 50s, with a sound that's much more in keeping with some of the vocalists on the Bethlehem label, than the few singers who cut sides for Riverside. Bev's got the great fortune to be working here with Jimmy Jones, who's done some great work for Sarah Vaughn over the years – and the small group backing on the album includes strong players like Kenny Burrell, Jerome Richardson, Milt Hinton, Roy Haynes, and Jones himself. Titles include "My Ship", "Lonelyville", "Lost April", "Love Look Away", "Thursday's Child", "Love Locked Out", and "Gloomy Sunday". A nice sad one – in case you couldn't guess by the titles! LP, Vinyl record album

Melba ListonMelba Liston & Her Bones ... LP
Metrojazz, 1958. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by arranger Melba Liston – a fantastic talent known for her work with Randy Weston and others, but an equally great player here at the head of an all star group! As you'd guess from the "bones" in the title, the album focuses on the trombone talents of Liston and other players on the set – Bennie Green, Al Grey, Jimmy Cleveland, Frank Rehak, and Slide Hampton – all of whom join together in multi-part trombone sections on the lead, but then slip off on their own for some wonderfully voiced solos! The sound is totally great – on a par with the hippest and most soulful work by Green or Hampton during the same stretch – but also done with that tight sense of groove that Liston always brought to her charts for other artists. Rhythm players include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ray Bryant on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – and titles include "You Don't Say", "Blues Melba", "Pow!", "Christmas Eve", and "The Dark Before The Dawn".

✨✧ Ike QuebecSoul Samba (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the few Blue Note albums with a bossa groove – and a great one too! The record features soulful tenor star Ike Quebec blowing in front of Brazilian-styled rhythms laid out by a combo that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a duo of Latin percussionists! Willie Bobo plays drums on the session, and the cuts have a short groovy feel, with a sax-heavy lead, in a similar style to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – but much more soulful overall, and with a nicely rougher feel on the rhythms. Really great stuff, and with titles that include "Loie", "Goin Home", "Favela", "Blue Samba", and "Shu Shu". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernest RanglinMod Mod Ranglin ... LP
Dub Store/Federal (Japan), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
One of those key 60s records that reminds us why Ernest Ranglin's always been one of the most unique talents on the electric guitar – partly a jazzman, and partly a formative force in the early sound of rocksteady and reggae on the Jamaican scene – as you'll hear on this sweet instrumental set! The album's got Ranglin working with deft skill on the guitar – echoing the chromes of Wes Montgomery one minute, or the sharper notes of Kenny Burrell the next – but all set to a groove that's got lots of ska and rocksteady in the rhythms, and maybe just a touch of mod vibes in the overall presentation! As part of that, there's some nice use of Hammond on the album – although often used in nicely subtle ways – and titles include "Archie", "La Bostella", "Walk Away", "Born Free", "You Won't See Me", "More Amore", and "What Now My Love".

✨✧ Freddie RoachDown To Earth ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A tremendous album from organist Freddie Roach – arguably his best record ever for Blue Note, and a really wonderful session! The set's got Freddie opening up in a slightly hipper groove than on some of his more R&B-influenced sides – working with a quartet that includes Percy France on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Clarence Johnston on drums. Tracks are longish, with some really great rhythms – and show Freddie moving past straight Hammond grooving, into a more righteous mode that would emerge even more on his albums for Prestige. 6 tracks in all, and the titles include "De Bug", "Ahm Miz", "Althea Soon", and "Lion Down".

One of the raunchiest albums ever cut by organist Freddie Roach – not as high-reaching as some of his later work, but with lots of short tracks that groove with a tight jukebox organ/tenor approach! The band is a strong one – with Conrad Lester on tenor, Eddie Wright on guitar (replaced by Kenny Burrell on a few cuts, and Clarence Johnson on drums – a power packed quartet groove that's lean, clean, and simple – giving the record a raw sound that's a bit more Prestige Hammond than the usual Blue Note set! Titles include "Baby Don't You Cry", "I Know", "Googa Mooga", "Mo Greens Please", "Nada Bossa", and "Party Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(New York stereo pressing, with Van Gelder/Stereo stamp, including the Blue Note inner sleeve. Vinyl has a small press flaw that clicks just a bit on "Baby Don't You Cry". Cover looks great!)

Jimmy SmithMidnight Special ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A perennial favorite in the Jimmy Smith catalog for Blue Note – and a smoking little set that has Jimmy's Hammond grooving nicely alongside tenor from Stanley Turrentine and guitar from Kenny Burrell! Only Donald Bailey's drums remain from Jimmy's regular trio, but that shift is fine, given the strength of the other players here – especially Turrentine, whose sharp-edged tenor is always a welcome sound on any date at this point in his career! The tunes are a fair bit more focused than some of Jimmy's Blue Note work of a few years before, but that focus is what makes it a classic – and the tracks are still nice and long, with titles that include "A Subtle One", "Jumpin The Blues", "Midnight Special", "One O'Clock Jump", and "Why Was I Born". LP, Vinyl record album
(New York stereo pressing, with RVG stamp and ear on both sides. Cover has a lightly stained corner on back.)

Warm mellow moody vibes from Cal Tjader, in a great setting for his vibes – with nice sweet orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, who gives the whole thing a nice deep Euro 60's feel! The group includes Hank Jones, Jerome Richardson & Kenny Burrell. The set's mostly ballads, with a number of standards including "I'm Old Fashioned", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Violets For Your Furs", plus a few pop tunes – and a nice Ogerman original called "Sunset Blvd".

Stanley TurrentineAlways Something There ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Groovy Stanley Turrentine – blowing soulfully over larger arrangements by Thad Jones – swinging and lively, with a mod 60s pop feel that makes the album quite different than most of Turrentine's other work for Blue Note! The approach is one that we should hate, given how much we love Stan's early hardbop work – but actually, we really dig the album quite a bit – as Stan's tone is impeccable, as always, turning tricks over jaunty backings that have a nice little groove to them. Players include Herbie Hancock on piano, Jerome Richardson on reeds, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Mickey Roker on drums – all players well tuned to the subtle soul of the record – and titles include "Light My Fire", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Home Town", "Song For Bonnie", "Hey Jude", and "There's Always Something There".

An excellent box set that brings together all of the material recorded at the unique Newport Festival in 1972 – the historic shift to New York City after the previous year's effort in Rhode Island was shut down by demonstrators! The package features a whopping 6 albums in all – 4 of which are Jam session volumes, with material from players who include Charles Mingus, Jimmy Owens, Charles McPherson, Buddy Tate, Big Black, Milt Jackson, Max Roach, Jaki Byard, Nat Adderley, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, and many others – all playing long, open, live tracks. LP 5 features "The Jimmy Smith Jam" – a very jamming set of work by Smith, with help from Kenny Burrell on guitar and Zoot Sims on tenor. LP 6 is "The Soul Sessions" – featuring soul material from Roberta Flack, Curtis Mayfield, Les McCann, and Herbie Mann. LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare second version of an album originally titled Little Big Horn – a slightly different session than usual for Nat – one that has him still working in a soul jazz quintet, as always (rhythm by Junior Mance, Bob Cranshaw, and Mickey Roker), but which also features a guitar instead of another horn, played alternately by either Kenny Burrell or Jim Hall. This change in format creates a nice little sound, and a good groove on the more interesting numbers – and gets Nat past the "brother of Cannonball" style of some of his other sides. Titles include "El Chico", "Foo Foo", "Half Time", and "Loneliness". LP, Vinyl record album
