This Kenny Burrell compilation from 32 Jazz collects some of the guitarist's best work recorded for the Muse label between 1978 and 1983. Perhaps not the Detroit native's most essential period, but a sorely overlooked one that reveals some great moments. Featuring variously Larry Gales, Reggie Johnson, and Rufus Reid on bass with Sherman Ferguson and Ben Riley on drums, the tracks are resolutely stripped back. In fact, the real joy here is that with the intimate trio setting one really gets to hear Burrell attack each song head-on in his own bluesy, minimalist style. Included here is an earthy rendition of "All Blues" that showcases Burrell comping behind his own tasteful blues choruses and a gorgeous afterglow version of J.J. Johnson's "Lament."
