On your second album Kenny Burrell, Volume 2, you had Horace Silver as pianist. That was also on Blue Note – we all knew each other there. He was a tremendous composer. Joe Benjamin (Ellington’s bassist) played on my Guitar Forms and Weaver of Dreams albums. You are known to have a tremendous connection with Ellington’s music, having made two Ellington is Forever tribute albums and teaching the Ellingtonia class at UCLA.

Terrace Theme (Master Take), 03:59. Prelude No. 2 (Excerpt), 02:14. Moon and Sand, 04:14. Last Night When We Were Young, 04:31.

It’s nice to see this landmark record get the deluxe reissue treatment from Speakers Corner. Kenny Burrell has always named this at or near the top of the recordings he’s most proud of, and it’s easy to see why. It gave him the chance to show what he could do in a variety of settings, and prove that he wasn’t just one of the finest guitarists of the hard-bop era.
