Barney Kessel – Here Comes That Rainy Day

This is a great song. The great guitarist Frank Evans once told me this was one of his favourites and I feel the same way. And here’s a great master at work on it. Barney Kessel is perhaps a bit less widely appreciated nowadays than he should be. He kicks off with some great chord melody playing here, followed by two stunning choruses where the rest of the trio joins in. That sweep picking really brings a smile to my face – hope it does to yours!
