Kenny Burrell - Handcrafted

An obscure little session from Kenny Burrell — recorded at the end of the 70s, and with a very laidback feel ! The set was produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets — and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's got Kenny playing in a trio format that's very spacious — with only gentle accompaniment from Reggie Johnson on bass and Sherman Ferguson on drums, and most of the sound on the set coming from the strings of Kenny's guitar. Following in the gentle spirit of the set, Kenny even plays an acoustic guitar on 2 numbers — making for a very different sound than usual. Some tracks are quite long, really letting Kenny open up on his solos — and titles include "So Little Time", "All Blues", "I'm Glad There Is You"..
