The sublimely atmospheric 'Round Midnight pairs Teddi King with pianist Beryl Booker, whose twinkling accompaniment perfectly underscores the session's nocturnal flavor. King's vocals reveal a potent melancholy missing from her later recordings, a vulnerability made all the more poignant by the stark simplicity of Booker's backings.
She then toured with George Shearing for two years beginning in the summer of 1952, and for a time was managed by the famed George Wein. Her critically praised 1959 album All the Kings' Songs found her interpreting the signature songs of contemporary male singers like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole (the "kings" of the title). In the 1960s, she opened the Playboy Club, where she often performed. After developing lupus, she managed to make a brief comeback with a 1977 album featuring Dave McKenna, and with two more albums recorded for Audiophile released posthumously. She eventually died of the disease on November 18, 1977.
