Kelly, who recorded 14 titles for Blue Note in a trio (1951), worked with Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie, and Lester Young during 1951-1952. After serving in the military, he made a strong impression with Washington (1955-1957), Charles Mingus (1956-1957), and the Dizzy Gillespie big band (1957), but he would be most famous for his stint with Miles Davis (1959-1963), recording such albums with Miles as Kind of Blue, At the Blackhawk, and Someday My Prince Will Come. When he left Davis, Kelly took the rest of the rhythm section (bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb) with him to form his trio. The group actually sounded at its best backing Wes Montgomery. Before his early death, Kelly recorded as a leader for Blue Note, Riverside, Vee-Jay, Verve, and Milestone. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi 68,583 Monthly Listeners 18,220 Followers Where people listen Taipei, TW 1,108 LISTENERS New York City, US 948 LISTENERS Toronto, CA 755 LISTENERS Los Angeles, US 745 LISTENERS Chicago, US 716 LISTENERS Albums View all on Spotify Related Artists View all on Spotify Listen to Wynton Kelly now.
