CD Reviews

NOT AS GREAT AS LP...BUT, STILL GREAT!!!
Richard J. Oravitz | 01/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Loved this LP . Got the cd right away, and am somewhat befuddled. If they would have only presented the LP AS IS instead of mindlessly repeating tracks (takes) over & over & over &..well, you get the idea..,it gets repetitious & distracts from the impact of the original. A classic case of where MORE is not BETTER! 5 takes of DOWNSTAIRS, 5 of BREADWINNER, 4 of TERRACE THEME... Is this really neccessary?... TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING!!!"
Moon and Sand

""Moon and Sand" by Kenny Burrell and the Gil Evans Orchestra is one of the most interesting guitar performances with a Latin combo that I have ever heard. The congas are dramatically panned to the left and the small drum kit at the right, giving the sensation of being stuck into the speakers. The orchestra is in the back, and Kenny's acoustic guitar (recorded unamplified and without any compression devices) is closer to the listener. Rudy Van Gelder's engineering skills give the listener the sensation of being in a nightclub. Reverberation is one of the "key signatures" of the analog Verve Jazz sound in the sixties, in this recorded by Van Gelder at his personal studio."
Reconnect with some beautiful jazz!

"Jazz (early combos, big band, bebop, progressive, fusion) and the music of the world's great symphony orchestras defined and shaped my childhood. I LOVED my dad's huge collection of albums (remember those)? I connected at some deep level with the artwork, and the music was just awesome. So I was thrilled to find Kenny Burrell's "Guitar Forms" available on Amazon. I ended up ordering an import CD from Japan because it preserved the original tracks from the original LP. Some of the other offerings added things that, in my humble opinion, ruined the cohesiveness of the whole package.

Burrell's clean, warm guitar is nicely showcased in Gil Evans' arrangements. It's the epitome of 1960s California cool!! The rest of the ensemble perform with flawless artistry. Great for studying by, for entertaining a date over dinner, for doing housework or other chores!! Buy it today!"
