Someday My Prince Will Come

Wynton Kelly! is an album by jazz pianist Wynton Kelly released on the Vee-Jay label featuring performances by Kelly with Paul Chambers or Sam Jones and Jimmy Cobb recorded in 1961.[1] Additional performances from these sessions were released as Someday My Prince Will Come.


The Allmusic review by Jim Todd awarded the album 2½ stars and states "a fine example of Kelly relaxed and swinging. Working a similar niche to some of the piano trio work of Red Garland and Ahmad Jamal — two pianists with their own associations with Miles Davis — Kelly takes a selection of well-known standards and energizes them with tasteful, sophisticated, snappy performances, blending in a group of original tunes along the way".[2]
