Simply put, Kenny Burrell helped shape the direction of modern jazz over the past 60 years. He’s appeared on hundreds of albums and iconic jazz labels from Blue Note to Verve, Prestige, Fantasy, Concord and Contemporary. Along the way, Burrell has worked with innumerable jazz stars including Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Jimmy Smith, Sonny Rollins, Quincy Jones, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Turrentine, Hubert Laws and more. Likewise, he’s tastefully complemented top-tier vocalists like Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett, Etta Jones and even James Brown. Since 1996 Burrell has directed the jazz studies program at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, where he is recognized as a foremost authority on the music of Duke Ellington. Burrell is known throughout the jazz world as a consummate spokesperson and goodwill ambassador. Playing drums on this date is another legend, Peter Erskine, of Weather Report and Steps Ahead fame.
