Bluesy Burrell

Bluesy Burrell (also released as Out of This World) is an album by guitarist Kenny Burrell with saxophonist Coleman Hawkins recorded in 1962 and originally released on the Moodsville label.


Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "This session is valuable for the majestic playing of tenor great Coleman Hawkins, who performs on half of the eight tracks". The All About Jazz review stated "It's definitely a variety album, with many tunes to choose from. Burrell is the star (his high ringing tone also plays octaves here and there), but everyone has their time in the spotlight, especially Hawkins, having a grand time on his last session for Prestige".
