Excellent chemistry between Burrell and Coltrane, a brilliant blend of guitar and tenor sax!
One of those rare combinations that occur only in the recording studio
happened between John Coltrane and Kenny Burrell in 1958. The rhythm team of
Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, who were with the Miles Davis quintet, was
enhanced by the suave, swinging piano of Tommy Flanagan, at that time
solidifying his growing reputation on the New York scene.
This is the one-time chemistry of Burrell and Coltrane, the blend of guitar and
tenor saxophone in a mix of original and standards; one of the latter, "Why Was
I Born," is a duet for the two principals.
