    Jimi was a big fan of Mr. Burrell. KB was probably the only jazz guitarist of his generation who spoke well of Hendrix.

    Hmmm, considering the trajectory of Grant Green's career, I wonder if he also spoke well of JH?

    I have no idea. But, a lot of the old school CC influenced jazzers
    didn't care for JH's approach to the instrument. :cool:

    Burrell is just the coolest.

    There are jazz guitarists who impress me more musically, but none of them play it as cool as Kenny. Well, maybe Wes.

    Still

    One of my favorite jazz albums of all time. Still have it on CD. Wish I had my original pressing.

    My Kenny Burrell story: My wife (girlfriend at the time) went and saw him at El Centro college is Dallas around 1993. I took the aforementioned copy of the LP with me (an original first pressing I paid all of 25.00 for in 1988 or 89). After the show, we went backstage (really just behind the curtain) to meet him. As we approached him, he saw the album and exclaimed "Where did you get that old thing!" He was great, very personable and kind to my 20 year old dorky jazz nerd self. He signed it for me. I wish I hadn't ever sold it. Still regret that.

    Whenever I feel I need a tune up - I turn to this cd, Kind of Blue or a Robert Cray cut
