Album Review

This CD reissue contains a sleepy trio session by guitarist Barney Kessel who teams up with bassist Kenny Napper and drummer John Marshall for a variety of current pop tunes (including Burt Bacharach's "The Look Of Love" and two Michel Legrand songs) plus a few overly relaxed standards and originals. The CD is rounded out by three bouncy numbers from 1969 that feature Kessel with a big band that includes tenor-saxophonist Teddy Edwards and pianist Jimmy Rowles. Overall the lethargic performances function best as superior background music.
