Introducing Kenny Cox is the debut album by American jazz pianist Kenny Cox featuring performances recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label.[1] The 2000 CD reissue added Cox's second Blue Note album Multidirection as bonus tracks.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Matt Collar awarded the album 4 stars stating "Though well-versed in the traditions of jazz standards and bop, Cox and his ensemble resemble most closely here the classic Miles Davis quintet of the mid- and late '60s. But rather than merely aping Davis, the Contemporary Jazz Quintet had a muscular and urban group sensibility all its own. In that sense, this is fiery, expansive and cerebral post-bop of the highest order".[2]
