Despite the title of this album, the music has nothing to do with 52nd Street. Richard Evans arranged and conducted an unidentified string orchestra behind guitarist Kenny Burrell on the four-part "Suite for Guitar and Orchestra" and five briefer pieces (three Evans originals plus Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma" and "Wild Is the Wind"). Burrell plays quite well, as usual (he is among the most consistent of jazz improvisers), and, even if the music is not all that memorable, the results are pleasing.
