The hardest working, most in demand guitarist in jazz for over half a century from his Blue Note debut in 1956 through to the second millennium, Kenny Burrell was described by his first employer, Dizzy Gillespie, as the grand master of jazz guitar. A guitarist who could hold his own with sheets-of-sound era John Coltrane; funk it up with Jimmy Smith; create a stone cold jazz classic in Midnight Blue; hold his own with orchestras and be just as happy with a swinging trio. This concert was performed at the Newport Jazz Festival, New York, July 4th 1976, broadcast by Voice of America, and features Kenny's working trio with Lisle Atkinson on bass and Freddie Waits on drums. Digipack CD Presented in superb fidelity with background notes and archival imagery
