The Fifties was the last golden decade for jazz and "adult pop" singers. Bev Kelly (b. 1934) was among that group of worldly ingenues whose gifted number included Joanie Summers, the late Beverly Kenney, and the mistress of this school, Blossom Dearie. With a well-chosen repertoire and a dream group of accompanists (pianist Jimmy Jones and drummer Roy Haynes had spent years with Sarah Vaughan, while Harry Edison's aphoristic trumpeting had graced milestone albums by no less than Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra), Love Locked Out was an often sublime debut.

with Jimmy Jones, Kenny Burrell, Milt Hinton, Roy Haynes, Jerome Richardson, Osie Johnson, Harry Edison, Johnny Cresci
