Donald Byrd & Kenny Burrell – All Night Long


One of the great jam session recordings of the 1950s, All Night Long was under the releaxed direcions of Kenny Burell. The guitarist gathered together some of the finest young players on the New York scene, including Donald Byrd on trumpet and tenor saxophonists Hank Mobley and Jerome Richardsom, one of the unsung heroes of the flute in jazz. Mal Waldron, Doug Watkins, and Arthur Taylor were the rhythm section. The musical formats were uncomplicated; All Night Long a blues with a brdige, Waldron’s Flickers a 16-bar pattern, Mobley’s two originals based on famliar 32-bar chord sequences. (The CD includes 2 bonus tracks). From these simple,classic bases were launched performances with the hallmarks that have long identified any Burell project: relaxation, swing, and high standards of musicianship.
