Includes the complete 1965 album: "On fire" released on his own private record label. This reissue also contains five bonus tracks from 1969 and 1973 performances featuring, among others, bassist Larry Ridley, drummer Don Lamond and guest stars Kenny Burrell and Grant Green on guitar.
John Lennon says: "Barney Kessel is incredible. He's just amazing ... 'Nobody' can play guitar like that." And George Harrison: "Barney Kessel is definitely the best guitar player in this world, or any other world." This issue offer the first time that Barney Kessel has ever recorded live while playing in a night club. And also is the first time he has ever been recorded "stretching out" and improvising solos without the confines of a recording studio.
As a bonus track this CD concludes with an outstanding tune, "Blue Mist," a Kessel's originals, which is the springboard for stunning "conversations" among three guitar giants - Barney Kessel, Kenny Burrell, and Grant Green captured at Ronnie Scott's in London in 1969. A must for collectors.
