Wynton Kelly - Nine Classic Albums 1951-1961

Wynton Kelly - Nine Classic Albums 1951-1961


Jazz pianist and composer Wynton Charles Kelly, famed for his crisp, leaping rhythmic blues playing style, and expert sight reading abilities, was known too as being one of the finest accompanists in the business. Drummer Philly Joe Jones was one of many musicians to sing his praises, stating that Kelly puts down flowers behind a soloist. He never wanted to steal in. He just puts together the right things. Miles Davis called Kelly the light for a cigarette. He lights the fire and he keeps it going, whilst Cannonball Adderley dubbed him the worlds greatest accompanist for a soloist.
This four CD collection, presented in a digitally remastered format, contains undoubtedly the finest recordings of a criminally underrated musician. His trademark style, unique among the more aggressive playing of his bop contemporaries, had a monumental influence on those who were to become future jazz piano legends, including Chick Corea, Monty Alexander and Chucho Vald├ęs. Tragically losing his life before he had the chance to develop himself as a solo force, he still single-handedly managed to change what it meant to be a sideman, expertly holding together the bands of every leader he worked with. This compilation, featuring almost five hours of music in total, is a fitting testament to one of the unsung heroes of jazz and will hopefully assist in keeping Wynton Kellys name alive and to reach new generations of fans for years to come.
