RCA, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s!

Billy May's got Frank nicely swinging on this one – working on a set of older numbers, retuned for the Sinatra sound of 50s Capitol!

Bobby TroupSongs Of Bobby Troup ... CD
Bethlehem, 1955. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A sublime early album from singer Bobby Troup – one that has a slightly different approach than you might guess from the title! Troup pays tribute to another fairly hip LA songwriter – the great Johnny Mercer, the man who helped to build Capitol Records in the late 40s! Mercer's tunes ... read more CD

New Miyoshi UmekiMiyoshi Sings For Arthur Godfrey – Miyoshi Umeki Sings American Songs In Japanese ... LP
Mercury, 1955. Very Good ... $7.99
An obscure American recording by Japanese vocalist Miyoshi Umeki – recorded under the aegis of Arthur Godfrey, with arrangements by Hugo Peretti! The tracks are a mixture of standards and tunes that have a slightly "eastern" feel – a bit kitsch, perhaps, but it makes for a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Two different albums from Caterina Valente – recorded in two different languages! Wake Up & Shake Up has Valente singing in English – something she didn't always do on record, but which comes off very well here – partly because the instrumentation is by Fats Sadi & The ... read more CD

New Caterina Valente with Edmundo RosFire & Frenzy ... LP
London, 1960. Very Good ... $2.99
A set cut with British maestro Edmundo Ros – in a style that's similar to some of his own albums from the time – not really straight Latin, but more a blend of tropical and exotic influences with some fuller big band modes! The style has almost an older sort of sound here – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art Van Damme & The Singers UnlimitedInvitation ... LP
MPS, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A meeting of two genius talents of the MPS catalog, and a set that's one of our favorites by both artists. The groovy Singers Unlimited get a weird moody backing by Art's accordion, and the result is a breathy batch of jazzy tracks that includes a great version of Jobim's "Wave", plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Plenty of magic here – a record with a different sound than some of Sarah Vaughan's earlier work – but one that's still pretty great! The backings here bring in plenty of strings, and a bit of voices – going for a full feel that's a bit like some of the country soul albums of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Nice 50's material from Sarah, with a sound that's perhaps a bit more arranged than her jazz albums for Emarcy, but still quite nice in the vocal department, especially as the set includes a nice batch of sensitive and obscure material. We're not sure who did the arrangements, by they sound as if ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
