    Ok, so I've got Midnight Blue (I'm pretty sure you all do as well). I have Guitar Forms, and some of the Jimmy Smith stuff.

    And then I looked up his discography, and holy cow....

    So what are some Kenny Burrell, either as a leader or a sideman, that I should be looking to listen to?

    First: Thank you leroydobbs,
    I'm listening to the Village Vangard and it's very good.

    I've some some searching tonight. Is there really no Midnight Blue-era live stuff out there?

    I have found precious little. And not those tunes or w that lineup.
    I’d love to be enlightened.

    Yes indeed!
    Hearing Freight Train is what put the hook in me a long time ago.
    Tommy (as usual) really knocks me out on that, too.

    I recently purchased a double CD (Live At The Village Vanguard) of live recordings - three live albums recorded for the Muse label in the late 70s.

    Definitely recommended: Ellington Is Forever Vol.1 and 2.

    One album that rarely gets mentioned is "The Tender Gender" from 1966 - perfect KB tone and a great bunch of sidemen:

    I really like Lotus Blossom.

    All his albums are worth having.

    I think 'Round Midnight is a great album-recorded in 1972

    "Vanguard" for sure, "Kenny Burrell", "God Bless The Child", "Laid Back" and "The Artist Selects" are all great.

    Some of my favorite Kenny is as a sideman too...

    All the stuff with Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine is worth hearing, in my book.

    I also love "All Day Long" and "All Night Long" (jam sessions, really) and Gene Ammon's "Funky."

    There's a nice trio one from the 70s on the Concord label called 'Tin Tin Deo', I'm not sure it's available now though.

    As a double CD coupled with "Moon And Sand" - another good one (as is "Round Midnight".)

    Purely for the sound, anything KB did with his D'Angelico in the 70s is worth listening to.

    Whoops, forgot "Soul Call".

    kenny burrells freedom recording is from two different sessions...but side b has turrentine, english and barretto..who were also later on midnight blue..plus it adds herbie hancock on piano

    very midnight blue-esque...makes one realize how integral the percussionists- english and barretto were to the mb vibe



    cheers

    Another great one.

    I have around 60 of his albums. My favorite tends to be whichever one I'm currently playing.
