✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ Beverly KenneyLonely & Blue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1952. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by vocalist Beverly Kenny – early 50s sides done before her rise to fame on Roost and Decca, and a much-needed addition to her too-short career! The tracks were originally part of transcription discs done for radio stations, and they've got a surprisingly full, professional feel – not like the quieter material showcased on SSJ's other Kenny collection, Snuggled On Your Shoulder – but recorded with jazzzy backings from arranger Eddie Safranski! The lineup includes tenor, alto, baritone, and trumpet – plus piano by either Dick Hyman and Moe Wexler, and guitar from Mundell Lowe – all to perfectly set the blue mood that Beverly's going for with her vocals. Many of the tracks here are nicely less familiar, and not overdone standards – and titles include "That Pyramid Jazz", "Long Lean & Lanky", "It's A Mean Old World", "Too Bad", "The Stars The Night The Moon", "Yours Sincerely", and "Let's Try It Again".

✨✧ Beverly KenneyWhat Is There To Say? (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1954/1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from 50s vocalist Beverly Kenney – a selection of material that stands nicely alongside her commercially-released albums of the time! Kenney first burst on the scene with a flourish, then recorded only briefly before her all-too-soon death in 1960 – so the unreleased gems here really do a lot towards filling in her small catalog of music – and offer up some surprising slices of work pulled from TV and radio performances in 1954 and 1958. Backing is by a group with Roland Hanna on piano and Vinnie Burke on bass on some tracks – and by The Skitch Henderson Orchestra on others – and titles include the Kenney originals "I Hate Rock & Roll" and "I Don't Believe In Love" – the latter of which is sung by Diane Hubka, in a recent performance added to this package. Other vintage songs include "The More I See You", "Swing & Sway", "Charleston Fling", "I'm Ready For The Show", "Tappin Out A Merry Beat", and "What Is There To Say" – plus a short interview with Beverly.
