Barney Kessel - Kessel Plays Standards

Availability: OUT OF STOCK

As one of the first of the modern jazz guitarists to follow in the wake of Charlie Christian, Barney Kessel became a prolific recording artist for Contemporary in a series of dates which are noteworthy for their variety as well as their excellence.

By using different instruments with the guitar, Barney Kessel was able to make each recording session an entity unto itself. When that inherent blues sensibility is applied to great material from the American Songbook, it is an unbeatable combination. On this album 'Kessel Plays Standards', listeners will enjoy his interpretations of such classics as "Speak Low", "Love Is Here to Stay", and "How Long Has This Been Going On?".

Authentic vinyl reissue pressed by Original Jazz Classics for Contemporary Records in 2014.
