Kenny Burrell- Lucky To Be Me
As I'm shell-shocked from the inescapable barrage of holiday music, I won't spotlight seasonal music in this forum. However, there's plenty of music that is just as spiritual as the most familiar hymn or carol. This gorgeous ballad is one such example. Kenny Burrell's gentle work on acoustic guitar, Cedar Walton's lush piano and the sensitive rhythm section of Rufus Reid and Lewis Nash are capable of moving a listener to tears. It's from 1991's Sunup To Sundown.
My review of last night's Cowboy Mouth show is here They're not one of my favorite bands, but there's no denying their power.
This is my first There Stands the Glass post using an Apple. I'm sure it'll get easier, but right now I'm completely befuddled.
