Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Though the jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell is associated mostly with Blue Note-based hard bop and soul-jazz (he had a hit with the funky "Chile con Carne"), he is also a musician of considerable artistry. Witness his landmark 1965 collaboration with Gil Evans, Guitar Forms, which rivals anything the arranger did with Miles Davis. Indeed, the track "Lotus Land" has a bolero form very reminiscent of Sketches of Spain. There is no stinting on the blues here, either, as evidenced on "Downstairs" and "Terrace Theme." But the highlights are the bossa nova version of Alec Wilder's "Moon and Sand," as well as a characteristically slow and luxurious treatment of Harold Arlen's "Last Night When We Were Young." Throughout, Burrell takes thoughtful, concise, and utterly musical solos, and even switches to acoustic classical guitar on "Prelude #2" and "Loie." © Richard Mortifoglio /TiVo

This album is one of guitarist Kenny Burrell's best-known sessions for the Blue Note label. Burrell is matched with tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, bassist Major Holley, drummer Bill English, and Ray Barretto on conga for a blues-oriented date highlighted by "Chitlins Con Carne," "Midnight Blue," "Saturday Night Blues," and the lone standard "Gee Baby Ain't I Good to You." © Scott Yanow /TiVo

Kenny Burrell has long been one of the top jazz guitarists, not only for his effortless ability to swing and terrific chops, but for his lyrical way of playing that never goes out of style. This live material comes from a pair of 2007 sets in California, featuring the jazz master unaccompanied. From the opening rendition of "Tenderly" he puts his audience on notice that they're in for a memorable evening. Burrell takes "Tenderly" from a soft introduction into a cooking bop workout. Other standards include an intimate, nostalgic "What a Wonderful World," a conversational, stop-and-go setting of "Come Rain or Come Shine," and a lovely, melancholy "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most." His medley tributes to songs made popular by Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington mix some atypical choices (how many players include relative obscurities like "No More" or "David Danced" in their salutes to these jazz greats?). Burrell's originals include a mellow tribute to another jazz guitar great ("Remembering Wes") and the upbeat, easygoing "Be Yourself" that features his vocal as well. Tenderly is beautifully recorded in front of appreciative audiences, who wisely hold their applause until the last moment to not miss a note by this talented guitarist. © Ken Dryden /TiVo

After its original release on Cadet Records in 1966, Have Yourself a Soulful Little Christmas was out of print for years until a 1992 reissue. With pensive, meditative, precise playing, it's a must-have and features a definitive jazz hit version of "Little Drummer Boy." © David A. Milberg & Michael G. Nastos /TiVo

Jazz - Released January 1, 1997 | Fantasy Records

This session is valuable for the majestic playing of tenor great Coleman Hawkins, who performs on half of the eight tracks. Released on the Prestige subsidiary Moodsville -- a label that specialized in recordings with an intimate, reflective atmosphere -- the Moodsville sound doesn't sit comfortably on Hawkins. His playing is brilliantly relaxed, but it's not mood music. Leader Kenny Burrell's playing is much more in line with the Moodsville groove. The guitarist is not amplified as much as he is on his Prestige dates from this time. In fact, he performs on a nylon-string instrument almost as much as he does on his hollow-body electric. Unlike Hawkins, Burrell's subdued contribution is made to measure for this date. Listeners expecting to hear Burrell the hard bopper won't. The key moments come during the interaction between the guitarist and tenor player, especially during their exchanges on Burrell's "Montono Blues." The rhythm section, Hawkins' working band from this period (pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Major Holley, and drummer Eddie Locke) provides impeccable, sublime support. © Jim Todd /TiVo

The romantic themes include four Duke Ellington compositions, the Miles Davis-penned "Blue in Green," and Thelonious Monk's "'Round Midnight."

This is another well-chosen set in the Concord Jazz Ballad Essentials series. © Al Campbell /TiVo

In the 21st century, High Note Records has distinguished itself as a purveyor of exceptionally high-quality offerings by seasoned jazz veterans still playing at the top of their game. This date by Kenny Burrell, Live at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola (a club within the Lincoln Center) is no exception. It was cut on September 9, 2008 during his one-week stand at the venue -- his first extended engagement in the Apple since leaving it for California to head UCLA's jazz program a decade ago. Burrell is accompanied by his regular drummer (and session ace) Clayton Cameron, brilliant pianist Benny Green, bassist Peter Washington, and 24-year-old newcomer Tivon Pennicott on tenor saxophone and flute. While this marks Burrell's debut for High Note, it is the first ever recorded appearance for Pennicott. The band gets right to work on an extended reading of Chano Pozo's "Tin Tin Deo." Burrell introduces it gently, but within a minute, Washington enters and then Cameron. The full band enters at two minutes and the gorgeous Latin groove begins to assert itself in waves beginning with Pennicott's swinging tenor solo. Burrell works all of his harmonic magic on the tune, stretching its rhythmic and lyric possibilities but keeping that loping groove in the center. Another standout is the burning-down-the-house read of Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa," with wonderfully inventive work by Cameron and Burrell knotting up his own solo in a multi-faceted chord workout. Green is always in the pocket, pushing Washington and Cameron; and though he plays a backing role, Pennicott's roiling tenor solo is impressive. Washington gets a real chance to shine on Burrell's famous "Bass Face." He not only drives the tune but his solo is rich and multidimensional. (The tune was written as a showcase for Ray Brown.) There are three tributes to Duke Ellington here: the first a strident, rhythmically adventurous take on Billy Strayhorn's "Raincheck," a deeply intuitive, supremely lyric version of "In a Sentimental Mood," and Burrell's solo guitar ballad "Be Yourself." The set closes with a fingerpopping "Bag's Groove." Despite the band's introduction near the beginning, the call-and-response between Pennicott and Burrell, with Cameron's gradually layer-building swing is a fantastic send-off. This is trademark Kenny Burrell: creative, disciplined, and full of melodic blues and grooves. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

Despite its title, this LP was actually guitarist Kenny Burrell's second Blue Note album, although the first to be released. Teamed with pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Paul Chambers, drummer Kenny Clarke and the conga of Candido, Burrell displays what was already an immediately recognizable tone. At 24, Burrell had quickly emerged to become one of the top bop guitarists of the era, and he is in particularly excellent form on "This Time the Dreams on Me," "Weaver of Dreams" and "Delilah." A bonus of this set is a percussion duo by Clarke and Candido on "Rhythmorama." Enjoyable music. © Scott Yanow /TiVo
