Soul Call Kenny Burrell

Kenny Burrell gets the soul call from Prestige Records – the result is one of his grooviest albums of the ’60s! The vibe here is nicely mellow – pretty laidback, and almost in the late nite style of some of the Moodsville label dates – with Kenny’s guitar ringing out in these beautifully-formed tones – over light rhythms from Will Davis on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Bill English on drums – plus just a little bit of conga from Ray Barretto, which creeps into the groove nicely when it’s used. Titles include “Soul Call”, “Kenny’s Theme”, “Here’s That Rainy Day”, “Kenny’s Theme”, and “Mark One”.
