Bev KellyLove Locked Out ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint- ... $49.99
The first Riverside album by Bev Kelly – an obscure ice-blond singer from the late 50s, with a sound that's much more in keeping with some of the vocalists on the Bethlehem label, than the few singers who cut sides for Riverside. Bev's got the great fortune to be working here with Jimmy Jones, who's done some great work for Sarah Vaughn over the years – and the small group backing on the album includes strong players like Kenny Burrell, Jerome Richardson, Milt Hinton, Roy Haynes, and Jones himself. Titles include "My Ship", "Lonelyville", "Lost April", "Love Look Away", "Thursday's Child", "Love Locked Out", and "Gloomy Sunday". A nice sad one – in case you couldn't guess by the titles! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has clear tape holding the top seam and a split bottom seam.)

Beverly KellyBeverly Kelly Sings ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1957. Very Good ... $28.99
An early date from vocalist Bev Kelly – working here with a backing from a piano trio led by Pat Moran, with support on bass by a young Scott LaFaro! Kelly's vocals are intimate and warm – with qualities that remind us a bit of Chris Connor on Bethlehem, but without as much of a sense of darkness – beautifully supported by Moran's combo with a light and gentle swing! The tunes are mostly familiar ones, but they're recorded with some nice elements that keep things interesting – thanks especially to the work of Moran and LaFaro – and the album may well be the best that Kelly ever recorded. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "The Man I Love", "I'm Glad There Is You", and "But Not For Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Pat MoranPat Moran Quartet ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $49.99
Really lovely work from Pat Moran – leader of one of the grooviest groups of the 50s! The Pat Moran Quartet were unique in that they were both a jazz combo and a harmony vocal group – one that mixed two male voices and two female voices in a nicely swinging way that has plenty of echoes of the Hi Los or Four Freshmen from the time! Pat plays piano and Bev Kelly's the other female voice in the group – blended nicely with the voice and bass of John Doling and vocals and drums of Johnny Whited. Tracks are often familiar Bethlehem jazz numbers, but they're given a really groovy twist in this setting – and although the group only recorded 2 albums, we love them both to death! Titles include "Somebody Loves Me", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "Gone With The Wind", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a bit of pen on back.)
