Beverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites (Japanese paper sleeve edition)

CD (Item 112530) Roost/EMI (Japan), 1957 — Condition: Used
$22.99 ...

CD

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".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Decca/Universal (Japan), 1958. Used
A super rare Decca album by vocalist Beverly Kenny – one of a few albums she cut for the label in the late 50s – and one of only a handful she ever cut at all! Beverly has a deep, sultry vocal style that recalls June Christy a bit, and the velvety toned Mel Torme in a way – and ... CD

Verve, 1964. Used
Wonderful work from vocalist Freddie Cole – brother to Nat, and an equally talented singer! Freddie's got a sound that's a bit sadder and more world-weary than Nat – still in kind of a small combo jazzy mode, as would bespeak his roots, but singing with a really honest approach that ... CD
Capitol, 1964. Used
A very groovy set of standards and 60s pop tunes – all done by Nancy in her great soulful swinging style! The record's got far more to offer than you'd guess from the track list, as Nancy's at the height of her early career here – and she's getting backing from a very sympathetic west ... CD
