Here's how cool Kenny Burrell is--far from making this 1972 session sound hopelessly dated, the Fender Rhodes electric piano played here by Richard Wyands actually sounds hip. In part that's due to the sound of the album as a whole. Drummer Lenny McBrowne relies as much on brushes as on sticks, the material leans to late-night and relaxed, and Burrell himself conjures up his perfect tone, an elusive combination of warmth, clarity, and snap.
Even when the quartet serves up the gentle R&B of "I Think It's Going to Rain Today" there's nothing lame or forced about it. Maybe it's the upright bass and ride cymbal work underpinning everything. Joe Sample and Paul Humphrey sit in on Fender Rhodes and drums, respectively, for the title cut, which is the kind of deep blue tune Burrell has excelled at since his early days on Prestige. "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out of My Life," performed as a trio without piano, is the most extroverted tune of the set, while "Blues in the Night" is its solo chord-melody outing. As usual, Burrell is an articulate, soulful, and tasteful improviser throughout.
