This release contains the complete original Kenny Burrell LP Bluesin’ Around (Columbia FC38507), which showcases the guitarist in a quintet format with such stars as Illinois Jacquet, Hank Jones, Brother Jack McDuff, Leo Wright, and Eddie Bert. In addition, all existing songs from the same sessions that weren’t included on the original LP plus all but one of the existing alternate takes from the dates.
