The C&L Music Club Remembers Keely Smith

RIP Jazz & Pop Legend Keely Smith

Keely Smith first became famous in the 1950's while working with her then-husband Louis Prima. She also became a crony of Frank Sinatra and worked with Nelson Riddle. She was also heard at most dinner parties my grandparents would host over several decades.

Keely Smith passed away Saturday evening in Palm Springs, California. She was 89 years old.
