Not only is this album blues, but jazz too. Burrell shows that he is indeed a master of jazz guitar. He is joined by Stanley Turrentine on sax, who takes thoughtful solos to answer Burrell. Major Holley and Bill English are the backbone of the group, and this is evident on "Mule", a down home, deep fried blue song (you know what i mean). Ray Barretto adds Latin spice to the mix on congas as heard best on "Chitlins con Carne". Kenny plays a beautiful chord solo on "Soul Lament", which showcases his deep feeling as a player. Overall, the album flows very well, and the remastering is perfect. This is a must-have for any jazz fan.
