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 album 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. Her version of “Destination Moon” is quite delightful, and other highlights include “Tis’ Autumn,” “Almost Like Being in Love,” “There Will Never Be Another You,” and “Snuggled on Your Shoulder,” even if “Ball and Chain” (a renamed “Sweet Lorraine”) does not quite cut it. Beverly Kenney had great potential and deserves to be remembered today. This reissue from the Spanish Fresh Sound label is highly recommended.
