This album is one of guitarist Kenny Burrell's best-known sessions for the Blue Note label. Burrell is matched with tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, bassist Major Holley, drummer Bill English, and Ray Barretto on conga for a blues-oriented date highlighted by "Chitlins Con Carne," "Midnight Blue," "Saturday Night Blues," and the lone standard "Gee Baby Ain't I Good to You."

Kenny Burrell's mastery of his instrument is so total that this album is really an investigation of guitar as living organism. The sound is mind-blowingly seductive, the grooves magnetic and the technical precision astounding. One of the greatest jazz-blues guitar records of all time.
