Kenny Kirkland is perhaps known as much for his work with Sting’s touring bands as he is for his exquisite playing on records by the Marsalis brothers and other “Young Lions” of the 1980s jazz scene.  Sadly, he only recorded one album as a leader before his untimely death.  It has a great blend of jazz, latin, and funk influences.  I’ve been listening to it all week and can’t recommend it enough.  Here’s one of Kenny’s originals.
