Kenny Burrell - The Tender Gender

Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell — quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout ! The groove here is nice and tight — a cooking little rhythm section that features Richard Wyands on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums — snapping away on the kit on some of the best tracks, and really helping Burrell to hit this groove that's mighty nice! Kenny seems to have a bit more bite than usual too — and even the laidback tunes have plenty going on to keep our ears happy.

"gee, but why is there a picture of a woman on the cover,thanks"

Since the answer to your "question" is quite obvious, one is only left to wonder why you posed it in the first place.

Thanks Mel. It's always enjoyable to hear vintage Burrell!
