this was part of National Public Radio's (U.S.A.) "Jazz Alive" series.
It is taken from 2 concerts on consecutive days and this is their complete
broadcast (the introduction cuts in slightly but all the music is uninterrupted)
all these songs are jazz standards. as the introduction says the style of
music here isn't exactly "west coast" style jazz, so named apparently
because the players come from the West Coast of U.S. area. I know alot of people
like the music of Kenny Burrell, one of the finest jazz guitarists around
at this time who could sound a little like early 70's George Benson (before
he went commercial pop with breezin' and this masquerade) and liked to play
a hollow-body electric guitar that has a nice tone to it (much like Benson
in earlier years). Also much like Benson, he was one of the best I've heard
at playing that kind of a guitar, and he's been doing it a long time, becoming
one of the more original and distinctive jazz guitarists of all.
