Wynton Kelly - Smokin'

Try searching the internet for Wynton Kelly - Smokin'. You'll get a bunch of hits for his lp with Wes Montgomery..you know...the famous one. But you will not get anything for the cheapo Trip lp which actually has a couple of great sets from the early 60's.

I have rearranged the tracks into chronological order as opposed to the haphazard way they were compiled. Guess I'm just anal that way.

Sometime in the late 70's/early 80's you saw great sessions re-released on crazy little labels, and the digital phenonemon had not even set in. It actually cost a bit of green to release lps back then so I am hoping someone made money off this at some point, cuz you all are getting it for free.

Tacked on to the end are 2 tracks from a quintet session from 1959.
