The term “jazz legend” doesn’t begin to describe the depth and nuance of Kenny Burrell’s artistry, nor his indelible contributions to jazz throughout his prolific career. At once amongst the most soulful and lyrical of jazz guitarists, Kenny Burrell is a quintessential jazz balladeer, as this ballads collection—hand-picked from Burrell’s acclaimed recordings on the Concord Jazz, Prestige, Fantasy, Moodsville, and New Jazz labels—clearly demonstrates. Recently honored with the prestigious NEA Jazz Masters Award, this living legend continues to be a towering giant of jazz. And this essential ballads collection clearly illustrates that Kenny Burrell is, indeed, a gentle giant.
