Prestige Profiles, Vol. 7 collects tracks guitarist Kenny Burrell recorded for Prestige from the late '50s to the early '60s. It was during this time, just after Burrell had moved to New York City from Detroit, that the young melodist built his reputation as one of the most sophisticated and gifted guitarists of his generation. Included are such tracks as the softly funky "Montono Blues" off 1962's Bluesy Burrell, the jauntily modernist "I Never Knew" featuring saxophonist John Coltrane and the cool "Minor Mishap" off 1957's "The Cats" with fellow Detroiter pianist Tommy Flanagan. This is a solid introduction to Burrell's early work. [Also included is a bonus disc featuring work by other Prestige guitarists including Pat Martino, Tal Farlow and others.] ~ Matt Collar, All Music Guide
