“Burrell is the grand master of jazz guitar” – Dizzy Gillespie

Kenny Burrell is an undisputed master of the jazz guitar. In a career spanning more than six decades, he has recorded more than 90 albums as a leader and countless more as a sideman, played with jazz legends from John Coltrane to Billie Holliday, founded the Jazz Studies program at UCLA, and been declared the “greatest guitarist in the world” by no less an authority than B.B. King. A Detroit native, Burrell’s recording career got off to an auspicious start in 1951 when he recorded with Dizzy Gillespie’s group, which at the time included Coltrane, Milt Jackson, and Percy Heath. After earning a degree in music from Wayne State University in Detroit, Burrell moved to New York and took the town by storm. His incredibly prolific output over several decades has helped define the sound of the modern jazz guitar. He has also helped earn academic recognition for jazz through his work at UCLA, where he taught the first-ever seminar on the music of Duke Ellington in 1978.
