Clearly one of the Better Albums Of the 1990s Decade
Adam Janjigian | New York, NY USA | 08/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I am merely a 19-year-old, I have spent the last 9 years living, learning, and breathing jazz. About a year ago, I had known who Kenny Garrett was but had not heard any of his music. It was at this point that a friend of mine played me "Songbook". About a week later, I had this album in my possession. Ever since I have had this album, I have not been able to stop listening to it. Each track provides a different ambience, in such away that alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett, along with fellow performers Nat Reeves on bass, Jeff "Tain" Watts on drums, and the late Kenny Kirkland on piano, is trying to tell a story or perhaps bring the listener on a journey. Every solo taken by both Garrett and Kirkland is captivating, both with Kirkland's more mainstream, and Garrett's eastern influences evident at parts.The tunes on "Songbook", all of which are Garrett originals, each possess their own unique feel and characteristics, everything from A funk tune, to syncopated swing, to eastern-influence, to a modified blues, to ballads.This album clearly deserves 5 stars! There are no flaws in any part of the recording; clearly the former Miles Davis saxophone player's best work!!!"

"I discovered Kenny through some late records of Miles Davis. On Davis' "Live around the world" he did something on "Human nature" that just blew my mind! So I bought some records of this Saxophone Colossus and I surely wasn't disappointed. I think Songbook is his best album so far. 10 tracks and every single one remains in your ear for quite some time, whit Sing a song of song as the ultimate highlight! Mellow and funky altogether? This song proves that these adjectives can go together. I'm surely not the first to tell you: A MUST HAVE!"
A Monster CD from a Monster musician

"Kenny Garrett is one of those rare musicians who consistently amazes whether playng his own compositions as he does here or working out on standards. Garrett has a clean distinct tone and can be melodic one minute and downright explosive the next. On this recording he is accompanied by the incredible Kenny Kirkland on piano and the two of them create some unforgettable moments. My personal favorite is the funky Brother Hubbard but that's just today. Each track here has something to offer and there is a wide variety in terms of mood and feel. Garrett's more recent CD Standard Of Language is one of my absolute favorites but this is right up there as well. Kenny Garrett is a huge talent and I will be checking out anything he releases from here on out."
