Sarah VaughanSwingin' Easy ... CD
EmArcy/Polygram, 1954/1957. Used ... $2.99
Very nice jazz-oriented material that has Sarah working with Jimmy Jones, one of her best accompanists, or John Malachi, who was in Billy Eckstine's band at the same time Sarah was with the group. All the tracks have nice small combo instrumentation – and Sarah keeps things nice and warm ... read more CD

New Sarah Vaughan & Billy EckstineSing The Best Of Irving Berlin ... LP
EmArcy, 1957. Very Good- ... $0.99
A great album that pairs these two great singers together for some of Berlin's popular tunes. They're accompanied by a full orchestra and the singers compliment each other nicely especially where Vaughan can match Eckstine's low tones. The tracks include "Isn't This A Lovely Day", "Al ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has discoloration due to age, partially split top and bottom seams, and a couple of light stains on the back.)

Cecile VernyFear & Faith ... CD
Jazz Haus (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
A wonderfully strong set from singer Cecile Verny – thanks to a backing combo who's as proud and bold as her vocals! Often, a singer like this never gets the sort of groove she deserves – sometimes lost amidst some fuller R&B arrangements, or under-whelmed by trippier abstract ... read more CD

Bobby VintonMy Elusive Dreams (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/SSJ (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
Elusive work from Bobby Vinton – a set of tracks from those brief years when he'd emerged as a mature, masculine singer – after years of earlier pop, and before his later fame as the Polish Prince! The record's got an approach that's similar to other late 60s vocal dates by singers ... read more CD

Pascal Von WroblewskySwinging Pool ... LP
Amiga (Germany), 1986. Near Mint- ... $11.99
That's "swinging pool", not "swimming pool" – a distinction that's easy to get once you hear the first few notes of the album! The set's an obscure 80s vocal jazz date from East Germany – recorded by female singer Pascal Von Wroblewsky in a style that feels more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah WashingtonBack To The Blues (with bonus tracks) (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Roulette/Capitol, 1962. Used ... $3.99
A bit different than some of Dinah Washington's other 60s work for Roulette – a set that's not entirely back to the blues promised in the title, but one that's definitely got a strong bluesy undercurrent! The backing's, by Fred Norman, aren't nearly as lush as on other Roulette sessions ... read more CD

Dinah WashingtonBest In Blues (Verve Elite pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Verve, Late 40s/Late 50s. Used ... $11.99
Nice early stuff from Dinah! This album brings together a tasty batch of her earlier R&B sides for Mercury – older singles that have a much rawer R&B sound than any of her later sophisticated stuff. Dinah was a great R&B singer in her own right – and the material on this ... read more CD

New Dinah WashingtonDinah '62 ... LP
Roulette, 1962. Very Good- ... $0.99
Fantastic work from Dinah – who's hitting her stride here in a whole new style, a booze-drenched, sad-eyed mode that's a distinct change from the bossy blues of earlier years. The prime example of this is the excellent "Drinking Again" – one of her standards of the 60s – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy/Polygram, 1954. Used ... $2.99
One of the best jazz-based sessions recorded by Dinah Washington in the 50s – appropriately titled Dinah Jams, which is a pretty good reference to the feeling of the set! The sessions were recorded in a relatively relaxed, intimate feel – not necessarily as unbridled as a true jam ... read more CD
