Kenny and the band were outstanding. It was wonderful to be at Yoshi's on his actual 80th birthday.

Burrell was his usual great self. The band was exceptional and tight. The piano and tenor were very creative and exciting to listen to. Would have enjoyed more solos from Kenny.

Mr. Burrell's birthday show was amazing. It was a packed house at Yoshi's (which is small enough to feel a bit intimate and cozy) and his all star band were impressive, too. A very recommended show for anyone who loves swinging trad jazz.
