Andy Bey at Jazz Standard!

June 11, 2011

Andy Bey is a jazz singer and pianist. He worked on a television show, Startime, with Connie Francis and sang for Louis Jordan. He went on to form a trio with sisters Salome Bey and Geraldine Bey (de Haas) called Andy and the Bey Sisters. They recorded various sides and released two albums on the Prestige label and one on RCA. The group parted in 1965. He also did notable work with Horace Silver and Gary Bartz. In 1974, Bey and Dee Dee Bridgewater were the featured vocalists on Stanley Clarke’s album Children of Forever. Later, Bey recorded the album Experience And Judgment, which had Indian influences. After that period he returned to hard bop and also recorded covers of music by non-jazz musicians such as Nick Drake. Other albums include Andy Bey and The Bey Sisters, Ballads, Blues & Bey (1996), American Song (2004), Tuesdays In Chinatown, and Ain’t Necessarily So (2007).
