Wynton Kelly Trio


Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb formed the Wynton Kelly Trio at the end of 1962. The trio reached the height of their popularity after they joined up with guitarist Wes Montgomery, resulting in three albums, a live set in New York's Half Note, a September 1965 studio album for Verve, and a live set at the Half Note for the Xanadu Label. Kelly's trio, now with Cecil McBee and Ron McClure kept working during the late 1960s until Kelly's death in 1971.
