                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's another old Kenny Burrell release that's never been posted to my 
knowledge.  This one is mellow candlelight dinner stuff, but Burrell is fluent 
on the fretboard as always.  At this point in his career Burrell didn't 
necessarily have to prove too much, and he doesn't here.  So, jump into your 
favorite recreational chemical enhancement and enjoy it for the ambiance, I 
guess.

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  The stream was CD quality, according to Tidal service.  
Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave editor was Cool Edit Pro 
using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  It was then converted down to 24 bit using 
DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. The only changes done were the total 
silencing of any random system noise between tracks.  It'll sound clean and 
hopefully indistinguishable from a CD.  Track timings will approximate that of 
the original release but are by no means exact to the second.   

Enjoy it if you grab it - mm
