Andy and the Bey Sisters – Trees 3:05. Andy and the Bey Sisters – It Must Be So 1:57. Andy and the Bey Sisters – Revenge 1:53. Vintage Music Collection by vintagemusicfm.

Although the vocal trio Andy Bey & the Bey Sisters lasted 11 years, it wasn't as well documented as it should have been. The trio, which consisted of Andy Bey and his sisters Geraldine and Salome, was formed in 1956 and broke up in 1967 - and during that 11-year period, they only recorded three albums. The first was provided for RCA Victor in 1961, and the other two, Now! Hear! and 'Round Midnight, were recorded for Prestige in 1964 and 1965, respectively. It's regrettable that the trio didn't become better known, because it had a lot of potential.

Andy Bey's wide-ranging voice has all the plummy richness of Billy Eckstine, Salome has the depth and power of a great gospel singer, and Geraldine, with a lighter and less distinctive touch, is just fine at singing high leads in the group passages. What's most surprising is that those voices are as flexible as they are powerful, able to match jazz sophistication and rhythmic subtlety with the power and urgency of R&B and gospel. I first heard Andy Bey on a Horace Silver album back in the mid-90s. His voice was so unique and distinctive compared to most of his contemporaries, you had to take notice. And as distinctive as it is, he still has an amazing range and versatility that sometimes, it sounds as if another male singer has taken the mic. I never realized he had been around for so long or that he had a small but powerful catalogue.

Although the vocal trio Andy Bey & the Bey Sisters lasted 11 years, it wasn't as well documented as it should have been. The trio, which consisted of Andy Bey and his sisters Geraldine and Salome, was formed in 1956 and broke up in 1967 – and during that 11-year period, they only recorded three albums. The first was provided for RCA Victor in 1961, and the other two, Now! Hear! and 'Round Midnight, were recorded for Prestige in 1964 and 1965, respectively. In late 2000, those two Prestige dates were reissued on this excellent CD. There are some parallels between the Bey siblings and Lambert, Hendicks & Ross, but that comparison is only valid up to a point because this threesome has a bluesier, more churchy outlook. Essentially, Andy Bey & the Bey Sisters falls into the jazz category, although it isn't the work of myopic bop purists. This is jazz, but it's jazz mixed with R&B, gospel, and the blues. So a very earthy, down-home approach prevails on material that ranges from Billie Holiday's "God Bless the Child," Ray Charles' "Hallelujah I Love Her So," and Horace Silver's "Sister Sadie" to Consuelo Velazquez's "Bésame Mucho" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Corcovado." It's regrettable that the trio didn't become better known, because it had a lot of potential. Risk-taking but quite accessible, this is a CD that both jazz and R&B enthusiasts should be aware of.
