Swingin' Kenny Burrell

Two complete original albums by Kenny Burrell : the self titled LP Kenny Burrell (Blue Note LP1543), which besides its wonderful music exhibits an original cover designed by the great Andy Warhol, and Swingin' (Blue Note GXF-3070). Burrell is featured in small group formats, which also showcase the talents of such stars as Tommy Flanagan, Tina Brooks, Kenny Dorham, J.R. Monterose, Frank Foster, Bobby Timmons, Paul Chambers, and Oscar Pettiford, among others.

After installing 7-Zip, right click on the first file (name.001) in the Windows Explorer and choose 'Extract here' in the 7-Zip submenu of the context menu.
