VariousEven Mo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
The latest volume in one of our favorite series of soul jazz tracks! This one opens the scope way past previous volumes, and features a rollicking party of tasty little groovers – most of them with a raw, uptempo, funky 45 jukebox kind of feel! Tracks are from the Chess, Fantasy, Jewel, and Brunswick catalogs – with many rare numbers like "Fever" by Sharon Cash, "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Ain't There Something That Money Can't Buy" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Hush" by Woody Herman, "Another Plan For School Mix Up" by The Cals, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Karen Hernandez, "Caesar's Pad" by Googie Rene, "The Point" by Aaron (Chico) Bailey & The Family Affair Band, "I Got To See My Baby" by Lee Jones & The Unforgotten Two, and "Ain't It A Groove" by Dave Hamilton. 23 cuts in all – and very very groovy!

VariousLeopard Lounge Presents The Jazz Singers – Swinging Vocals From The Atlantic & Warner Vaults ... CD
Warner (UK), 1960s/1970s/1990s. New Copy .... $14.99
A big batch of swinging vocal jazz from the vaults of Warner and Atlantic – picked mostly from the prime 60s years – with some scattered gems from the 70s – and even a couple of tracks from the 90s! The setlist mixes a variety of styles and practitioners very well for a coherent feel – from warmly swinging number by Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald to more leftfield, groovy work by Mose Allison and Sammy Davis, Jr., to a couple of relatively recent 90s cuts by Nina Simone, Jimmy Scott and Madeleine Peyroux! 15 tracks in all: "Summertime" by Chris Connor & Maynard Ferguson, "The Lady's In Love With Me" by Mel Torme, "The More I See You" by Nina Simone, "Your Molecular Structure" by Mose Allison, "Fever" by Esther Phillips, "For Once In My Life" by Carmen McCrae, "Do Nothing 'Till You Hear From Me" by Rahsaan Roland Kirk & Al Hibbler and more!

VariousVerve – The Sound Of America – Singles Collection (5 CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 5 CDs .... $62.99 69.98
A very fresh look at the music of Verve Records – that legendary jazz imprint that's made wonderful sounds from the late 40s onwards! Verve is well-known as a label for classic jazz albums – work by Stan Getz, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, and many others – but during the company's initial wave of releases, they also issued a fair number of singles, too – offering different mixes and versions of tracks than appeared on the full length records! This sweet 5CD set is a marvelous overview of that era – and is especially strong on music from Verve's big years of the 50s and 60s – a time when the label was really helping shape American musical tastes, and was getting a lot of these singles out there on the charts, on the radios, and in the jukeboxes too. The set features 100 rare singles, served up on five differently-themed CDs – Just Friends (1947 to 1956), Stairway To The Stars (1956/1957), Bossa Nova (1958 to 1963), Goldfinger (1963 to 1965), and Bumpin On Sunset (1965 to 2001). The Stairway To The Stars CD features work from Verve's big wave of vocal recordings in the mid 50s – songs by Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and others – and Goldfinger has some ultra-cool bits from Verve's mod years – including work by Jimmy Smith, Donald Byrd, Lalo Schifrin, Stan Getz, and Bill Evans. The Bossa Nova material is great, and more than stands for itself – and the Bumpin On Sunset CD features some overlooked gems from the late 60s and early 70s – with really only one later track. 100 songs in all, 5CDs, and a nice booklet with notes and players for each single.

VariousWarner Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $36.99
One of the grooviest collections of Burt Bacharach songs we've ever heard – a sweet double-length set that dips deep into the Warner Brothers catalog of the 60s, then moves into later decades for a few choice moments too! Tracks here represent a great range of Warner pop from the time – a bit of jazz, mod instrumentals, soul, girl pop, and more – including some excellent cuts from overseas that fit perfectly in with the American tracks that dominate the set. CD2 moves into some later territory that includes some 70s and 80s takes on Burt's music – showing the ever-growing power of Bacharach, even after his initial burst of songwriting and production. Titles include "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "The Look Of Love" by Anita Kerr Singers, "Cross Town Bus" by Gals & Pals, "And This Is Mine" by Connie Stevens, "You're Following Me" by Caterina Valente, "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Baby It's You" by Jeff Phillips, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Non Mi Innamoro Piu" by Johnny Dorelli & Catherine Spaak, "I Wake Up Crying" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BAnd, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Siw Malmkvist, "In My Reality" by Natalie Cole, "Alfie" by Everything But The Girl, "Are You There With Another Girl" by Mari Wilson, "Tell It To Your Heart" by Randy Crawford, and "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Linda Ronstadt.

New VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 5 – Sunshine Of Your Love ... LP
1996. New Copy 2LP .... Around May 1, 2014
The 5th genius compilation by the Mojo Club folks, and the one that's got some very cool stuff that's a little bit goofy, but which has a nice groove, and is nice guilty pleasure around here. Examples of this are "Sunshine of Your Love" sung by Ella Fitzgerald, "Season of the Witch" by Julie Driscoll, and "Young Generation" by Dakota Staton. Lots of other cool groovers, too, like "Hold Me, I've Got to Leave You" by Johnny Teupen, "Move Your Hand" by La Clave, "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tema Rio 65" by Trio Rio 65, and "Cinnamon & Clove" by Lee Evans. Great stuff throughout, and like spending a very enjoyable evening at a great little club in Europe. 2 LPs. LP, Vinyl record album
