Background: Released in 1955, Beverly Kenny Sings for Johnny Smith was the first album by Beverly Kenney.
Beverly Kenney was one of the most promising new jazz singers of the mid-’50s. Unfortunately, she did not live long and recorded just three albums as a leader. This particular CD reissue, a quartet date with guitarist Johnny Smith, pianist Bob Pancoast, bassist Knobby Totah, and drummer Mousie Alexander, is a real gem, with Kenney heard in top form. … Beverly Kenney had great potential and deserves to be remembered today.
