Barney Kessel was for years considered the finest jazz guitarist since the great Charlie Christian. Like Stitt, Kessel was born in 1924, but he was an Okie from Muskogee with a feel for the blues and a lyrical way with a melody line. Kessel paid his early dues in the bands of Ben Pollack, Charlie Barnett and Artie Shaw. By the 1950s the gifted young guitarist had hit full stride and was putting out annual hits—The Poll Winners—with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Shelly Manne. Kessel was also a founding member of the Oscar Peterson trio. Autumn Leaves presents the artist in the full flower of maturity. The CD brings together four recording sessions made in London and Los Angeles in 1968 and 1969, and it’s a tour de force for Kessel. Listen to his rich, virtuosic work on the title cut or his lovely treatment of
I Will Wait for You” and
Watch What Happens,” from Michel Legrand’s score for The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. For an example or two of Kessel’s way with the blues, try
Blue Soul,” and
