Barney Kessel Trio at P.J.'S Club

This cd containing the complete 1965 album On Fire plus five bonus tracks from 1969 and 1973. Features musical assistance from, among others, bassist Larry Ridley, drummer Don Lamond and guest stars Kenny Burrell and Grant Green on guitar. This issue offers the first time that Barney Kessel was ever recorded live while playing in a night club. As a bonus track this CD concludes 'Blue Mist', a Kessel original, which is the springboard for stunning "conversations" among three guitar giants - Barney Kessel, Kenny Burrell, and Grant Green captured at Ronnie Scott's in London in 1969. A must for collectors.
