Liner Note Author: Scott Yanow.
Ballad Essentials compiles 12 remastered tracks recorded by jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell between 1958 and 2002, encompassing his tenure with Prestige, Fantasy, Contemporary, and Concord Jazz. The romantic themes include four Duke Ellington compositions, the Miles Davis-penned "Blue in Green," and Thelonious Monk's "'Round Midnight." The bop-based Detroit guitarist is backed up on these dates by various all-star ensembles that feature John Coltrane, Tommy Flanagan, Coleman Hawkins, Joe Sample, Jimmy Smith, and numerous others. This is another well-chosen set in the Concord Jazz Ballad Essentials series. ~ Al Campbell
