Kelly Great

LP (Item 5330) Vee Jay, 1960 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

One of Wynton Kelly's greatest albums, and an all-star hardbop session that includes Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. With Philly Joe on drums, and Morgan and Shorter, the LP almost has the feel of a classic Art Blakey session for Blue Note, but Kelly's piano gives it a feel that's a bit warmer, and more relaxed. The tracks are nearly all long, with very open room for soloing, and nice catchy hooks by the various writers – who include Kelly, Morgan, and Shorter. Titles include "Wrinkles", "Mama G", "What Know", and "Sidney". (Rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
