Loud Rosie headlines for HRC, the same group that nixed Cho in July Page 20 AUGUST 27, 2004 fiUil mi Jazz vocalist Kellye Gray brings her songs in blue and pink back to Houston By JOHNNY HOOKS HOST MODERN JAZZ singer Kellye Gray doesn't just perform a song. She inhabits it. Gray exploded professionally in Houston in the mid '80s. Movie star jazz, scat riffs, post-modern jazz — all are found on Kellye Gray's palette and what a picture she paints. Gray returns to a long-time Houston haunt, Cezanne, Aug. 27 and 28 for four shows. According to her bio. Gray, a native Texan, began her career up and down Austin's rowdy Sixth Street during the 1980s. At a Kellye Gray show then, it was not unusual to hear sets that covered a range that extended from Charlie Parker and Miles Davis to Madonna and Prince. Gray moved to Houston in 1987. performing nightly at the Blue Moon Cafe, across from Bell Park on Montrose. It was common to find people on blankets in the park listening to Gray's silky songs echo outside. She developed a strong following that attracted the fledgling Houston label, Justice Records. She recorded the classic "Standards In Gray" in 1989, and the disc soared to the top of the Gavin Report as well as other jazz charts. "Standards" reached mythic proportions, but a legal fight over rights to the recording led to Gray's very public exit from Justice. These days, copies of "Standards in Gray" .sell for $60 and more on Ebay. Asked when will "Standards" be re-released, Gray said. "That is such a big question in my life. You know 1 try to go on to Amazon, Out-there.com and Ebay and buy up available copies so that when I run into some of my super fans I can say 'You don't have to listen to that third generation cassette anymore. Here!'" "Standards" is also available on emusic.com. '■Justice owns [the masters), so [recordings] are available, I don't make anything off that, but my fans love it. I also have a whole bootleg section on my Web site, kellyegray.com." Gray said. On a promotional tour for "Standards." Gray fell in love with San Francisco and moved then niato Kiss," utilizing most of the original Texas crew from the first disc, was recorded shortly thereafter.
