KENNY BARRON - SUNSET TO DAWN
















Kenny Barron
for Muse from 1973.
Dusty Groove:
One of the series of very, very excellent soul jazz albums Barron cut for Muse in the early and mid 70s, with Kenny playing mostly electric piano. The vibe is spacious and totally grooving throughout, even on the more swing based bop numbers, and Barron gets complementary backing by Bob Cranshaw on bass, Freddy Waits on drums, Warren Smith on vibes, and Richard Landrum on percussion for a hornless but very full sounding group. The set includes the great groover "Swamp Demon" and the very well-sampled "Sunset", plus "Al-Kifha", "Delores St S.F.", and "Dawn".
320 rip from the deleted 32jazz cd reissue

Joe Dorn's 32 Jazz became Label M became Hyena. Unforntuantely the Muse catalogue was pretty much abandoned (I wonder if he ever had it legally in the first place?) when 32 folded and was not revived to my knowledge at either label M or now Hyena.

Another winner! The Muse catalog was superb, it's sad to see such great music abandoned by the record industry...thanks Bacoso.

I've only heard him with Stan Getz so far. Looking forward to checking out how he does as a leader. Thanks

A lovely date by Kenny. Always enjoyed this, but didn't know it had been reissued digitally. Sad that it's gone again, but thanks for sharing it.

I love Kenny Barron and this is a corker of an album and I've never heard of it before. Thanks so much. You have a great site here. You've turned me on to a lot of good music that I didn't know existed! Nathan Davis, Tyrone Washington, Charles Earland, etc. I could go on. I thought I knew a lot....
If I can return any favors, send me a wish list.

Hi Bacoso,
I’ve posted Kenny Barron – “Innocence” (1978) with a chunky attached blog discography, in which I've linked to this album, "Golden Lotus", Tyrone Washington, Curtis Amy and Lateef's "Ten Years Hence". Hope your holiday is going well, all the best,
Simon

Hi Bacoso,
linked here again in the post of James Moody – “Feelin’ it Together” (1973), also featuring Barron and recorded a few months before this.
Thanks!
Simon

Last link here, I promise! This time it's for Elvin Jones – “Time Capsule” (1977) - Barron on keys
All the best,
Simon
