Barney Kessel , Dave Young


Barney Kessel

featuring Dave Young
Apart from their musical genius, what did Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, Ornette Coleman, Billie Holiday and Lester Young have in common? If you listen closely to their recordings, you'll notice the elegant playing of a certain guitar player whose impeccable phrasing has become the standard in the bop guitar world. The talent in question is that of Barney Kessel, a musician not unknown to Montrealers for having corne here in 1983 with Charlie Byrd and Herb Ellis as part of the Great Guitars Trio. Kessel's technique transforms the electric guitar into something of a brass instrument with a saxophone-like sound, one that bears the mark of Charlie Christian. What better then the discreet bass of Dave Young to enhance the delicate sound of this American guitar player? Indeed, the Festival couldn't have done better then the fabulous team-work of ibis Kessel-Young duo.
