Barney Kessel - Just Friends

This Sonet recording features guitarist Barney Kessel, bassist Sture Nordin and drummer Pelle Hulten at a live club date in Stockholm. The music is essentially bebop plus a few bossas. Fortunately, Kessel (the main voice throughout) varies the moods and the tempos, so the set (which includes "Just Friends," ahis original "Going Thru Some Changes" and "Days of Wine & Roses," among others) holds on to one's interest.

OK, I saw the "PW" link just now. Thanks for a wonderful upload. I've had this album on vinyl since the 70s, it was nice to finally find a CD version of it.
