Freedom.New York: Blue Note, 1980 Stock Code: 144414
Inscribed by Burrell on the back cover in blue ball-point pen, "To Don, Best wishes! Kenny Burrell". Brian Priestley writes of Burrell that he manages to be "both boppy and bluesy without being boring, he has furthered the Charlie Christian style better than almost anyone else" (Jazz: The Rough Guide, 1995). Burrell's is not a common autograph.
Freedom was recorded across several sessions in 1963-4 but not released until 1980, when it was put out by Blue Note in Japan. The fine cover image is by the distinguished jazz photographer Katsuji Abe. Side 1 here features Blue Note stalwart Stanley Turrentine on tenor, alongside Herbie Hancock, Benn Tucker (bass), Bill English (drums) and Ray Barretto (conga). Side 2 has Seldon Powell (tenor, baritone, flute), Hank Jones (piano, organ), Milt Hinton (bass) and Osie Johnson (drums).
12-inch vinyl LP (Blue Note GXF-3957), new plain paper sleeve (original sleeve also present), original album cover.
A little shelf wear to cover but very good; disc in excellent condition.
