Album Review

Originally available on the Japanese Trio label, this Storyville CD reissue unfortunately has no liner notes. Guitarist Barney Kessel performs a set of overly relaxed warhorses with a couple of quietly supportive sidemen (bassist Kunimitsu Inaba and drummer Tetsujirah Obara) at a Tokyo club. Laurindo Almeida's "Barniana" is the only obscure material on a low-key and lightly swinging date which finds Kessel emphasizing his chordal work on such tunes as "Girl From Ipanema," "Bye Bye Blackbird" and "Willow Weep For Me." Sleepy music.


Born: 17 October 1923 in Muskogee, OK

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

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....
