Guitarist Kenny Burrell has been called a “cool, controlled romantic” whose textured playing is “subtle yet sensual, meditative, exultant, wry, and intimate.” He may well be one of the most lyrical guitarists on the jazz scene. In fact, he was Duke Ellington's favorite improviser on the guitar. Burrell delights on this 1993 Piano Jazz with a solo of “‘Round Midnight.” He joins McPartland for “Don't Worry ‘bout Me.”
