Jazz Love: Kenny Burrell

J turned me on to Kenny Burrell (who's Christmas album is on constant rotation at J's house), and I spent some time digging through YouTube searching for awesome tunes. Inspired by both blues and jazz guitarists, Kenny Burrell has recorded both as a leader and a sideman--everything with everyone. He has a light, playful touch.  The first video below is of the great Harold Arlen song "Last Night When We Were Young"--and it won me over after 6 bars.
