Album Review

This edition of Savoy's Giants of Jazz series delves into cuts Kenny Burrell recorded for the Muse label in the late '70s and early '80s. While not as consistent as the Motor City guitarist's classic work in the '50s on Blue Note, this material certainly isn't second tier. All ten tracks, "St. Thomas," "You and the Night and the Music," "All Blues," "Listen to the Dawn," "Flamingo," "In a Mellow Tone," "Groovin' High," "Over the Rainbow," "Tenderly," and "Willow Weep for Me," have been remastered using 24-bit digital transfers from the original acetates and tape masters. Hearing these tracks freshened up is a pleasure and should even satisfy the picky audiophile. The only downside to this disc, and the Savoy Giants of Jazz series, is the lack of personnel and recording dates. Still, the mid-line pricing makes this set recommended.
