Wynton Kelly
Wynton Kelly
Kelly, together with drummer Jimmy Cobb and bassist Paul Chambers, raised the art of accompaniment to a new level of discreet sensitivity. After four years with Miles, the trio toured on their own, and with guitarist Wes Montgomery, recording an incredible album entitled Smokin' At The Half Note.

Kelly also recorded with Cannonball Adderley, Art Pepper, Sonny Rolllins, John Coltrane, Abbey Lincoln and Hank Mobley. In the late 60s, he worked with trumpeter/violinist Ray Nance, and in New York clubs, passing away rather tragically from an epileptic seizure 7 months short of his fortieth birthday.

A superb accompanist, Wynton Kelly was also a distinctive soloist noted for infectous and swinging improvisations palyed with warmth, flair and conviction. His seamless blend of blues and bebop made him one of the '50s and '60s premier pianists.
