On your second album Kenny Burrell, Volume 2, you had Horace Silver as pianist. That was also on Blue Note – we all knew each other there. He was a tremendous composer. Express your deep self. Then the influences will surface in a unique way that only you can determine. Another thing I learned from Ellington is be free with yourself. Don’t let the information interfere with what you feel. We have a greater intelligence than we realize.

One can only imagine what could have been if Burrell had continued Track listing. All compositions by Duke Ellington except as indicated.
