Kenny Burrell and his jazz all-stars were fantastic. A powerhouse group of musicians who played their hearts out. The performance was one more example of why life events can be so exciting. The place was full and the crowd loved it. Yoshi's is the...continued

Wow. Kenny is ALWAYS a treat to hear and what an incredible band he had, with Billy Childs on piano, an incredible horn section...good individual players throughout the band. Even the sound seemed better than usual last night. A memorable evening....continued

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.

Kenny Burrell and his band were AWESOME! I loved the performance and especially the time in which each musician did a solo. The band's performance was better than I could have imagined. Kenny Burrell is a master guitarist - much love for him. ...continued

This is the second time we've seen Kenny Burrell at Yoshi's and to say he is terrific is an understatement. I first saw him 40 years ago and his guitar work is still as good today as it was then, maybe even better as he has so many more years of...continued

Kenny Burrell and the Jazz Heritage All-Stars provided a well-appreciated program of jazz conversations between 7 incredible musicians. I especially appreciated Childs and the tenor saxaphone/flutist...each of the musicians had a story to share. ...continued

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.
