Thanks! Share it with your friends!


John Jenkins with Kenny Burrell is an album by American jazz saxophonist John Jenkins, featuring jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell, recorded on August 11, 1957 and released on Blue Note later that year. The two are backed by rhythm section Sonny Clark, Paul Chambers and Dannie Richmond.

The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow states, “Sounding at times like Charlie Parker (with touches of Phil Woods and Jackie McLean), Jenkins easily keeps up with his better-known sidemen and plays the boppish music with plenty of creativity, emotion, and excitement. After listening to the high-quality set, one wonders why Jenkins did not make it.
