In the world of jazz guitar, few players can measure up to the skill, stature and sheer influence that Kenny Burrell brought to the genre. With his trademark straightforward playing that fused jazz and blues beautifully, this pioneer featured on hundreds of albums, both as leader of his own groups and as a much in-demand sideman for others. Often hailed as the greatest guitarist in the world – he was the personal favourite of the legendary B.B. King – Burrell’s playing has gone on to permanently change the way in which the instrument is approached and, in so doing, has influenced generation after generation of likeminded musicians. This four disc collection, containing eight fully remastered albums, provides the perfect introduction to one of the finest and most innovative musicians still active today. Totaling over five hours music, presented here is the entirety of Kenny Burrell’s early catalogue as band leader, demonstrating clearly why his place in the history of jazz is justly deserved. Recorded with the assistance of some of the finest players of his generation, the set not only provides an ideal starting point for a study of this legendary guitarist, but an essential component for any eclectic jazz collection.
