Editorial Reviews

This session is a model of the emotionally intense ballad programs featured on Prestige's Moodsville subsidiary. The great Kenny Burrell receives a major assist from saxophone patriarch Coleman Hawkins (who is in exemplary early-Sixties form), Hawkins' rhythm section of the time (made up exclusively of natives of Burrell's hometown Detroit) and conga drummer Ray Barretto. The choice of material and variety of settings are inspired, with Burrell heard solo on 'No More,' over just bass and drums on 'Guilty,' in two different settings and on three titles by the full sextet. Each soloist is fully engaged throughout, with things shifting into even higher gear when Burrell and Hawkins converse on 'Montono Blues' and 'I Thought About You.'

TRES PALABRAS is wonderful; both Hawk and pianist Tommy Flanagan shine here.
Bomojaz
Like all his work, this is smooth, well thought out, and exceptionally well performed.

One of those special recording sessions we all hope for if blues guitar is our forte.

This CD contains the original Moodsville LP issue of BLUESY BURRELL, with an additional bonus track from a different date thrown on. Four of the tunes pair Burrell with Coleman Hawkins, to excellent effect. TRES PALABRAS is wonderful; both Hawk and pianist Tommy Flanagan shine here. In fact, as usual, Tommy Flanagan adds immensely to the success of this date. Hawk is in great form. Contrary to the review below, my copy's sound was excellent - no hiss at all. A most enjoyable CD.

With Kenny Burrell on guitar and Coleman Hawkins on tenor sax, you cannot go wrong with this disc. From the funky to the easy swinging this is an excellent collaboration. They performed some standards and some of their own compositions, and there is not a weak one in the bunch. Hawkins does not play on all tracks, which is to be regretted. Otherwise, a fine CD. As always Tommy Flannagan on piano only adds to the high quality.

No technical comments, just listening comments. If you like Van Gelder's production techniques then this is a triumph.

This session is valuable for the majestic playing of tenor great Coleman Hawkins, who performs on half of the eight tracks. While originally released on the Prestige subsidiary Moodsville -- a label that specialized in recordings with an intimate, reflective atmosphere -- the Moodsville sound doesn't sit comfortably on Hawkins. His playing is brilliantly relaxed, but it's not mood music. Leader Kenny Burrell's playing is much more in line with the Moodsville groove. The guitarist is not amplified as much as he is on his Prestige dates from this time. In fact, he performs on a nylon-string instrument almost as much as he does on his hollow-body electric. Unlike Hawkins, Burrell's subdued contribution is made to measure for this date. Listeners expecting to hear Burrell the hard bopper won't. The key moments come during the interaction between the guitarist and tenor player, especially during their exchanges on Burrell's "Montono Blues." The rhythm section, Hawkins' working band from this period (pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Major Holley, and drummer Eddie Locke), provide impeccable, sublime support. The CD is rounded out with an up-tempo performance of the standard "I Never Knew," from a date led by pianist Gildo Mahones. This is where Burrell gets a chance to cook in his classic hard bop style, along with the fine alto player Leo Wright.
