Kitty WHITE 1955

Kitty Jean White was born as Kitty Bilbrew and raized in musical family -her parents were singers, and her uncle was a well-known vaudevillian and disc jockey. Then she started her singing career as a singer and a pianist. She appeared on such local night clubs as the Hob Nob, the Club Gala, the Haig and The Captain's Table.

When Kitty branched out and opened at the Black Orchid in Chicago, IL, she was introduced to the executives of Mercury Records, and she became a Mercury recording artist.

This LP, her first EmArcy/Mercury album, features Kitty White's elegant vocal style. She concentrated on singing, while Gerald Wiggins took over the keyboard. Other members in the accompanying group are all well-known West-Coast musicians to help Kitty to establish a beautiful and jazzy mood on every track.
