Kenny Burrell was one of the contingent of fine young jazz players who came out of Detroit in the 1950s to make their marks on the national jazz scene. A guitarist of rare taste and musicality, Burrell's versatility allowed him to function as appropriately in small groups with rhythm and blues leanings as in the rarified atmosphere created by arrangers like Gil Evans and Richard Evans. By 1964, when Soul Call was recorded, he had established himself as one of the most admired guitarists in jazz. The album title reflects the 1960s market concept of soul as a commodity, but the music is nicely balanced between standards and original compositions by Burrell and pianist Will Davis. It includes Burrell's sensitive interpretation of Harold Arlen's "A Sleepin' Bee."

with Will Davis, Martin Rivera, Bill English, Ray Barretto
