Wynton Kelly • Comin' In The Back Door

Biography by Scott Yanow
A superb accompanist loved by Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley, Wynton Kelly was also a distinctive soloist who decades later would be a strong influence on Benny Green. He grew up in Brooklyn and early on played in R&B bands led by Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Hal Singer, and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. 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.


Biografía de Scott Yanow
Un magnífico acompañante amado por Miles Davis y Cannonball Adderley, Wynton Kelly fue también un solista distintivo que décadas más tarde sería una fuerte influencia para Benny Green. Creció en Brooklyn y al principio tocó en bandas de R&B lideradas por Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Hal Singer y Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Kelly, que grabó 14 títulos para Blue Note en un trío (1951), trabajó con Dinah Washington, Dizzy Gillespie y Lester Young durante 1951-1952. Después de servir en el ejército, causó una fuerte impresión con Washington (1955-1957), Charles Mingus (1956-1957) y la big band Dizzy Gillespie (1957), pero sería más famoso por su paso por Miles Davis (1959-1963), grabando discos con Miles como Kind of Blue, At the Blackhawk y Someday My Prince Will Come. Cuando dejó Davis, Kelly se llevó el resto de la sección rítmica (el bajista Paul Chambers y el baterista Jimmy Cobb) con él para formar su trío. En realidad, el grupo sonó de maravilla respaldando a Wes Montgomery. Antes de su temprana muerte, Kelly grabó como líder para Blue Note, Riverside, Vee-Jay, Verve y Milestone.
