KENNY BARRON - SUNSET TO DAWN
Kenny Barron for Muse from 1973.
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".
