Kenny Burrell – Midnight Blue


Kenny Burrell’s music is a wonderful blend of elegance and conviction, musical inventiveness and thoughtful restraint. On this 1967 session, the guitarist is joined by regular associates–tenorist Stanley Turrentine, conga drummer Ray Barretto, bassist Major Holley, and drummer Bill English–and together they concentrate on the subtlest and deepest hues of the blues, combining strong rhythmic grooves with a feeling of late-night reflection. There’s never a misstep or a superfluous note, from the funky Latin hit “Chitlins Con Carne” to Burrell’s deeply felt solo “Soul Lament” and the concentrated swing of “Gee, Baby, Ain’t I Good to You.”
