Album Review

This CD reissue has guitarist Barney Kessel's performance at the 1973 Montreux Jazz Festival. Kessel is heard unaccompanied on two ballads (the Beatles' "Yesterday" and his own "In the Garden of Love"), he performs "Laura" in a trio with bassist Kenny Baldock and drummer Johnny Richardson, plays three songs with a quartet also featuring pianist Brian Lemon, uses a quintet on "Bridging the Blues" which also co-stars tenor saxophonist Danny Moss and, for an encore, has a duet with violinist Stephane Grappelli on a delightful version of "Tea for Two." This well-rounded set features Barney Kessel in prime form and is easily recommended to his fans.

Genre: Jazz

One of the finest guitarists to emerge after the death of Charlie Christian, Barney Kessel was a reliable bop soloist throughout his career. He played with a big band fronted by Chico Marx (1943), was fortunate enough to appear in the classic jazz short Jammin' the Blues (1944), and then worked with the big bands of Charlie Barnet (1944-1945) and Artie Shaw (1945); he also recorded with Shaw's Gramercy Five. Kessel became a busy studio musician in Los Angeles, but was always in demand for jazz records....
