180g Vinyl LP & Bonus CD!

Beverly Kenney is a cult figure for jazz fans around the world with her sweet, childlike voice and a pleasant jazz styled phrasing seducing both pop and jazz audiences. On this outstanding record, she displays the smooth, smart and bittersweet touch that defined her personal style. This is the first vinyl reissue and first ever CD release. Essential.

Beverly Kenney came into music after music had come to her. Not in one blinding flash, but by degrees, she became convinced that she had to sing. In her vibrato-free sound and concept of time and phrase, Beverly substantiates her affinity for jazz, particularly of the modern persuasion. And like any jazz practitioner of worth, she tries to combine the storyline and the musical contours of a song into a sum of meaningfulness.

"What I have always wanted in my work is the completeness and balance that is Billie Holiday," she replied when asked about the ultimate in singing.

Sensitivity, a captivating sound that is youthful yet hints at experience, and the basic honesty of her singing, recommend her. Too, there is the drive to be complete, to speak "the truth" in her singing, whatever her medium, pop or jazz, and this, in the final analysis, is more important than anything else. With such singleness of purpose, it is unlikely that she will be denied.

"Born to Be Blue captures Beverly Kenney at her most intimate and compelling...the music channels the emotional depth of the blues with startling clarity, employing Kenney's deep, commanding vocals to vividly poignant effect." -Jason Ankeny,
