Let's Cook (EP)
Released: Nov 1957
The opening bars of Let's Cook clue you into why Barney Kessel was the favorite jazz guitarist of so many future rock 'n' rollers. The rest of this 1957 set shows what a fine band leader Kessel was, sharing the spotlight with tenor king Ben Webster and the doomed trombonist Frank Rosolino. The session is split between pianists Jimmy Rowles and Hampton Hawes, both of whom swing so effortlessly that it almost doesn't matter which one is playing.
