✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenney Vol 4 – Live At Birdland (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1956/1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from Beverly Kenney – two rare broadcast performances that add plenty to her too-small catalog of recordings! The lady's a hell of a singer from the postwar years in which artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O'Day were issuing countless albums, year after year – one whose talents are equally great, but who hardly ever got her due on record! Beverly's few albums from the time are highly-prized jazz treasures, which have been reissued often over the years – and that interest has brought to light some other rare material like this, from a brief time when Kenney was getting some time in the limelight. The first half of the set features a sweet radio performance from 1956, recorded by NBC and featuring the great Gildo Mahones on piano – working with Tommy Potter on bass and Ron Jefferson on drums – a very hip trio who really bring a lot of bite to the music! The second half of the set features a very cool date from 1960 – a Kenney appearance on the Playboy's Penthouse TV show, along with some cool conversation with Hugh Hefner. Titles include "Makin Whoopee", "Mountain Greenery", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Everything Happens To Me", and "Violets For Your Furs". Also includes a whole Beverly Kenney segment of the All Star Parade of Bands on NBC. CD

✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bev Kenny sounds surprisingly great in this Basie-styled setting – one that has Jimmy Jones handling the keys instead of the Count – with added support from players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Freddie Green on guitar! Like most of Kenny's sessions of the 50s, there's a quality here that really goes beyond standard vocal jazz – a real feel for the material, and a relaxed command of the small combo setting that must have made Beverly a hell of an act to catch in the clubs. Her natural sweetness is a nice contrast to the deeper tones of the Basie players – and titles include "I Never Has Seen Snow", "The More I See You", "The Charm Of You", "My Kind Of Love", "Who Cares What People Say", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood".
