I have a couple of DVDs of these guys (and others,)jamming together but this is a clip that I've not seen previously. They're all stellar players, of course but it's interesting to see their individual styles as they each take solos.
Grant Green has a more relaxed, 'cool' style whilst Barney Kessell is more 'hot' and flamboyant. Kenny Burrell leans more towards the Be Bop style of players like Tal Farlow with fast flurries of notes.
The three players cover a lot of jazz guitar ground between them. Tonally they're all slightly different too with Barney having a more 'cutting,' edgy tone whilst Grant's is moodier, mellower and Kenny's is more mid-range textured.
A very interesting clip, alec and thanks for posting it.
Was thinking about what you said about Kenny Burrell leaning towards the Be Bop style when listening to the Midnight Blue record yesterday and especially the track called Kenny's Sound ...
Wow that was great. I had never seen that clip either ,I really enjoyed it!
RG ... Grant Green ...
Had learned about a sample from his track Down Here On The Ground not long ago via the Who Sampled Who website and a record I had listened to over several months sometime in the '90s was mentioned because of another record I was addicted slightly earlier to in the '90s
The beginning of Vibes and Stuff - A Tribe Called Quest also includes at the track I mentioned above, from Kenny Burrell, called Kenny's Sound (and it appears just that one time) 😎
Yes yes yes...I was aware. I’m a big Tribe fan myself and I was blown away when they sampled another fave of mine on the Midnight Mauraders album
One of my all time favourite tracks...ever!
😎 Good point
This is so good...the entire band and arrangement is spot on.
He was only 43 when he died...he must have had so much more music in him😢
