One of those rare combinations that occur only in the recording studio happened between John Coltrane and Kenny Burrell in 1958. The rhythm team of Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, who were with the Miles Davis quintet, was enhanced by the suave, swinging piano of Tommy Flanagan, at that time solidifying his growing reputation on the New York scene.
This is the one-time chemistry of Burrell and Coltrane, the blend of guitar and tenor saxophone in a mix of original and standards; one of the latter, "Why Was I Born," is a duet for the two principals.
