The cultured piano style of Kenny Barron has graced many albums in the last half century. He is an easy swinger deeply admired for his nonpareil musicianship and innate sensitivity to the needs of his musical companions of the moment. Born in 1943 he was gigging with Philly Joe Jones at sixteen and soon playing in a band with his tenor saxist brother Bill. In 1962 he was hired by Dizzy Gillespie and the five year stint he had with Dizzy established him firmly on the jazz scene throughout the world.

Kenny's winsome way with the style is on show here when he took a trip over to Rudy van Gelder's studio in Englewood Cliffs N.J. along with his working Trio of the time featuring Ray Drummond on bass and Ben Riley on drums to record the opening Fungii Mama, the Blue Mitchell classic.

This is a joyous Trio romp honed to absolute perfection by the participants. Barron, Drummond and Riley fuse, as do all the best Trios, to the point where describing them merely as”a rhythm section” is almost an insult. Rather they provide interlocking commentaries and conversations within each given musical scenario - they are as one and it is pure empathy as each man anticipates the thought of his colleagues. We are indeed fortunate that this team is featured on no less than five of these selections.....

Next up in this varied look at the Barron cannon is Kenny's composition Slow Grind this time a solo masterpiece as he goes way back to the roots echoing the grand masters of the twelve bar genre from way back when. This is a classic rendition of enduring musical values embodied in jazz history which will sKenny Barron (piano) with Claudio Roditi (trumpet), Gary Bartz (alto sax) Paquito d’Rivera (alto sax), Bud Shank(alto sax), Steve Hobbs(vibes), Barry Harris (piano); Ray Drummond (bass) Ben Riley(drums) and others.

Drummond and Riley return in spades for Flight Path - taking wing on Kenny's catchy original up tempo burn featuring the disciplined power of leader and alto sax master Gary Bartz. The fiercely creative front man is suitably inspired and does not let the intensity created by Barron and friends drop for one second. His range of voice-like inflections, cries, now was definitive alto of the time.

This celebration of Kenny’s fifty years on that scene is marked by this programme of highlights from his CANDID recordings in a variety of settings. Amongst his companions are vibes star Steve Hobbs, saxophonists Bud Shank, Gary Bartz, Donald Harrison, Paquito d’Rivera and Ricky Ford as well as trumpeters Claudio Roditi and Mark Morganelli and others. Together with several of Kenny’s fine original compositions the piano duets with Barry Harris and John Hicks on show here add spice to this truly tasty offering.ound as fresh in fifty years time as it does today.
