Kenny BarronInnocence ... CD
Wolf/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99
Sweet electric keys from Kenny Barron – one of those few excellent 70s albums that have the pianist hitting some Fender Rhodes! The record has Kenny playing electric on most of the set – in a mode that's as open, and spiritual as his best work for the Muse label – maybe even better, as the tracks have a freer style, and really open up with a beautiful sense of energy! The other players here really make the record special, too – and include Sonny Fortune on alto sax, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Buster Williams on bass, Ben Riley on drums, and Billy Hart on percussion – a lineup that really gives the whole thing a level that's right up there with classics on the Black Jazz or Strata East label. As always with the electric piano, Kenny hits some wonderful notes, colors, and tones that make us wish he used the instrument all the time – on titles that include "Sunshower", "Innocence", "Bacchanal", and "Nothing To Fear".

Kenny BarronKenny Barron At The Piano (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu/Elemental, 1981. Used ... $8.99
One of the best solo albums ever recorded by the great Kenny Barron – a set with so much life, so much cover, you really don't need any other instruments at all! Kenny's at a key point in his career here – really stretching out as an individual talent, and getting plenty of room to work on this beautifully-recorded grand piano – whose tones ring out with this soulful, majestic quality that seems to only amplify the genius that Barron brings to the keys! And while there's certainly been other Kenny Barron solo albums over the years – including some great dates from overseas – there's a power and confidence here that's somewhat missing from the rest – this righteous, commanding style that's almost like Stanley Cowell in a similar setting, but more lyrical too. Titles include "Bud-Like", "Calypso", "Body & Soul", "Enchanted Flower", "Star Crossed Lovers", and "Misterioso". CD features the bonus track "Wazuri Blues". CD

Kenny Barron & Dave HollandArt Of Conversation ... CD
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A great title for this sublime set of duo material – work that features Kenny Barron on piano and Dave Holland on bass – with no other instrumentation at all! Barron's a player who's always expansive, no matter what the setting – but hearing him in spare formation like this, we really fall in love with his work all over again – his wonderfully rich command of the keyboard, inherent sense of rhythm, and strong ability to paint in musical colors that never fail to delight! Holland's a revelation, too – with well-crafted, yet spare basslines – able to deliver more with less, at a level that's quite different than Dave's earlier work, and really shows so much growth – especially on the mellower moments, where he really shapes the sound of the record. Titles include "The Oracle", "Waltz For Wheeler", "The Only One", "Rain", and "Seascape". CD

Kenny Burrell5 Original Albums (Introducing/Kenny Burrell/Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2/Five Spot Cafe) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy 5CD ... $21.99
An amazing early run of music from guitarist Kenny Burrell – five albums in a single package, each with LP-style covers! First up is his Blue Note debut – Introducing Kenny Burrell – 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! Next is the self-titled Kenny Burrell – Blue Note 1543 – early genius from Kenny – a set that features the guitarist sounding beautiful in a variety of settings, all of them great! The format really mixes things up nicely – almost showing a more diverse Kenny than in later years – as one track is solo, and the others feature quartet, quintet, and sextet lineups – with players who include JR Monterose or Frank Foster on tenor, Tommy Flanagan or Bobby Timons on piano, Oscar Pettiford or Sam Jones on bass, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Kenny Clarke or Shadow Wilson on drums. The solo track is a great version of "But Not For Me" – and other titles include "Mexico City", "Cheeta", "Phinupi", and "Now See How You Are". Next are the two records that make up Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2 – material that catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s – one used also with Jimmy Smith, and which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. Titles include "Yes Baby", "Scotch Blues", "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Phinupi", and "Caravan". Last up is On View At The Five Spot Cafe – a smoking live session, and one that's got a bit more of an edge than some of his other records from the time! Kenny's guitar still has that impeccable tone throughout – but it's also matched by some wonderful tenor from the great Tina Brooks – making one of his few key Blue Note appearances here – in a massively cooking group that also features some piano from Bobby Timmons on three of the album's five tracks (Roland Hanna plays on the two others) – plus drums from Art Blakey, and bass from Ben Tucker – a pair wo work together wonderfully to create some really great grooves. Kenny himself seems to pick up great energy in the setting – and titles include "Lady Be Good", "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". CD

Kenny BurrellBluesin Around ... CD
Columbia (France), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A rare treasure – material that Kenny Burrell recorded for Columbia in the early 60s, but which wasn't ever issued until an early 80s LP! Ostensibly, the sides were recorded around the same time as Kenny's Weaver Of Dreams album for Columbia (an obscure enough session in itself!) – and laid in the can for years, possibly because his use of vocals on that album was a bit of a failure. Fortunately, Kenny's just playing guitar on this album – and doing a mighty fine job, in small group settings that make the material some of his strongest since his late 50s sides for Blue Note. The album features 4 different groups – with players that include Jack McDuff on Hammond, Leo Wright on alto, Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, and either Louis Hayes or Joe Dukes on drums. Titles include "The Switch", "Mambo Twist", "The Squeeze", "Bye & Bye", and "One Mint Julep". CD

CTI, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $12.99
A stone classic from Kenny Burrell – a record that brought the guitarist to a whole new audience, with a wonderful sound that's a perfect summation of CTI at its best! The vibe here is perfect – spare, airy guitar lines from Burrell – playing with a freer style than usual, although with all of the deep soul of before – in ways that are a bit like the early Wes Montgomery material for CTI, but taken to the next level with a more sophisticated set of backdrops too! Don Sebesky handled arrangements, Freddie Hubbard solos alongside Kenny, and many track shave some mighty nice electric piano, too. Titles include funky track "Love Is The Answer", and mellower tunes "Child Is Born", "Do What You Gotta Do", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
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".

Kenny BurrellOde To 52nd Street ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
Less of the bop tribute that you might think – given the title – and more of a groovy batch of jazz tracks, with arrangements by Richard Evans, in the soulful bouncy style that was his best standard for mid 60s work at Chess! Evans' work is what really makes the record sparkle – and Kenny's soloing here in a Verve-ish mode, floating over the top of a variety of material, both mellow and upbeat. Side one features the extended "Suite For Guitar & Orchestra" – and side two features "I Want My Baby Back", "Soulero", "Con Alma", and "Blues Fuse". LP, Vinyl record album

High Note, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Jazz guitar great Kenny Burrell leading the Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra Unlimited – live at the Catalina's Jazz Club in Hollywood! It's a sweet paean to the legacy of live jazz, especially the larger band style at it's most diverse – in turns carrying on a grand orchestral sweep and more delicately-layered intimacy from number to number. Kenny sounds many years younger than his age, but has the range of experience and deep legacy to give this a real sense of history and importance. The set wisely includes his spoken introductions and even some singing, paying tribute to jazz history AND modernity with vibrant performances all around. Includes "Stolen Moments", "Jeannine", "Be Yourself", "Mama Ya Ya", "Fourth Dimension (aka Kenny's Sound)", a sweet Billy Strayhorn medley with "Passion Flower" and "Take The 'A' Train", 'Things Ain't What They Used To Be" and more.

Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
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 cut this album with John Coltrane in 1958 – and the session's a real standout in both of their careers at the time – Kenny's, for being a well-crafted, highly-focused effort – and Coltrane's, for being a unique outing with a guitar, but one that's done with the same deep-spirited sound of his best work for Prestige. The group's a quintet, with Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb in the rhythm section – and titles include "Big Paul", "Lyresto", "Why Was I Born?", "I Never Knew", and "Freight Trane". CD

Motema, 2010. Used ... $5.99
A very cool set from pianist Geri Allen – one of the most forceful, rhythmic albums we've heard from her in years – thanks to some very tight bass and drum work, and a bit of tap percussion too! The core trio grooving is already great – bass from Kenny Davis and drums from Kassa Overall – played with enough force to almost be funk at parts – but adding in the unusual sound of Maurice Chestnut's tap percussion makes for some more skittish moments, really complicating the rhythms in a great way. Titles include "The Western Wall/Soul Eyes", "Four By Five", "Philly Joe", "In Appreciation", "LWB's House", and "Embraceable You/Loverman". CD

✨✧ Clifton AndersonDecade ... CD
EmArcy, 2009. Used ... $4.99
It's been a decade since the last album as a leader from trombonist Clifton Anderson, but it's definitely been worth the wait – as the player has matured wonderfully over the years, working often with Sonny Rollins, and really finding his sense of space and soul! Anderson's got a very well-developed sound here – one that should easily make him one of the modern greats on his instrument, and one of the few to live up to a legacy started by players like JJ Johnson or Curtis Fuller many years back – tightly inventive improvisation on the trombone, creatively searching for new avenues of expression while also managing to always make things swing! That balance is a rare one, but Anderson's definitely got it – and he's helped ably by group mates who include Kenny Garrett on alto, Eric Wyatt on trenor, Larry Williss on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "So Wrong About You", "Noble", "Deja-Blue", "If", "Aah Soon Come", "Stubbs", and "Z". CD

Peter & Will Anderson with Ken Peplowski & PaquitoClarinet Summit ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Four clarinets working together wonderfully – not in some of the more experimental modes of such groups from the 80s, but in a hard-swinging style that's almost a "four brothers" approach to the instrument – thanks to some great rhythm at the core! The lineup features Peter Anderson, Will Anderson, Ken Peplowski, and Paquito D'Rivera – all working on standard clarinets, with a beautifully unified reed sound at the heads of the tunes, then breaking out into individual solo passages that remind us what a great instrument the clarinet can be for jazz – especially when taken past any sort of old school or more trad models. The duo of Kenny Washington on drums and David Wong on bass provide a sharp edge to the bottom, creating soulful currents that really help the sound of the record – and titles include "How Insensitive", "Groovin High", "Night In Tunisia", "Creole Love Call", "How About You", "Very Saxy", and "I'll Never Be The Same".

Roy AyersWest Coast Vibes ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1963. Used ... $19.99
A holy grail of jazz – Roy Ayers' first album as a leader, and a near-lost session that's simply sublime! The record was cut at the same time that Roy was working in LA with pianist Jack Wilson – and it's got an approach that's a bit similar to some of the Wilson/Ayers sessions for Atlantic, Blue Note, and Vault – but with a marked difference here in the presence of Curtis Amy, who plays some incredible tenor and soprano sax on the session – arcing out over the modal lines set up by the vibes and piano, and shading in the record with a much deeper sense of soul! Amy plays on about half the album's tracks – all of which are standout modal tunes that preface the MPS/Saba sound by a number of years, and which we'd easily rank as some of the greatest jazz recorded anywhere in the 60s. And even the tracks without Amy are great too – and have Roy echoing out with a wonderfully round tone on the vibes – no tricks, no gimmicks, no attempt to cross over to commercial jazz – just a brilliant tone and fresh vision on his instrument for the time. Wilson's great too (but when is he not?) – and rhythm is by either Bill Plummer or Victor Gaskin on bass, and either Tony Bazley or Kenny Dennis on drums. Titles include "Sound & Sense", "Ricardo's Dilemma", "Out Of Sight", "Young & Foolish", "Reggie Of Chester", and "Days Of Wine & Roses". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Now's The Time" and "Perhaps/Cool Blues" – both pulled from the Bird Call record with Vi Redd as a leader, noteworthy as Roy's first time in the studio! CD
