Kenny Burrell

The man with more than 100 recorded albums!

Let’s get a bit jazzy today…nothing wrong with that I say. So grab a martini or a glass of your favorite drink and enjoy the music of Kenny Burrell.

Kenneth Earl Burrell, known as “Kenny” was born in 1931. He is an American Jazz guitarist and his playing is grounded in bebop and blues. He has performed with the greatest jazz players in the history for music.

His music catalogue sees him collaborating with amazing jazz players such as Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Evans, John Jenkins, Gene Ammons and Sonny Rollins to name just a few.

He has recorded about 106 albums, but the one I want you to listen to is Midnight Blue from 1963. It’s one of Burrell’s best-known works for the record label Blue Note and features Stanley Turrentine on tenor saxophone, Major Holley on double bass, Bill English on drums and Ray Barretto on conga.
