Arguably one of the greatest Kenny Burrell
albums ever! Unlike some of Kenny
's other sessions, which hide his guitar in arrangements that are a bit too complicated – this one's a nicely stripped-down album that sets his hollow electric in a group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny
Clarke on drums, and Candido on conga. The tracks are nicely laidback, and Kenny
hits some nice deep grooves on cuts like "Fugue N Blues", "Takeela", and "Delilah". Plus, the album also includes a totally cool percussion-only track – "Rhythmorama", which is a duet between Kenny
Clarke and Candido!
