“It’s important to help people understand how valuable and how important jazz is, and also to make them understand that this music is theirs, that it’s a part of them. When more people learn to understand and appreciate it, it’s going to be a win-win.” - Kenny Burrell

Kenny Burrell: Sus principales influencias como guitarrista han sido Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt y Wes Montgomery. Siendo un estudiante en Wayne State University, hizo su debut grabando como miembro del sexteto de Dizzy Gillespie en 1951.

I saw Kenny just a little younger than this from about this close in Ann Arbor, at a jazz festival dedicated to Duke Ellington. Kenny took the Duke tribute quite seriously as his set was entirely comprised of Ellington compositions.
