Icy brilliance from a young Helen Merrill – a record that's easily the Mercury equivalent of June Christy's classic work on Capitol or Chris Connor's classics for Bethlehem!

Mrs MillerMrs Miller's Greatest Hits ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $6.99
Who can ever figure this chick out? Mrs Miller was a strange denizen of the bottom level of the music industry food chain – and her stock-in-trade was performing 60s pop tunes with a shrill fuddy-duddy style that was instantly recognizable, and forever annoying! This record is less of a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Warm jazz vocals, and some great instrumentation too – thanks to work from the sublime 70s bassist Isao Suzuki! Singer Noriko Miyamoto's on the cover, but the album's got the same great glow as Isao's other albums of the decade – a really refreshing approach to jazz arrangements, with ... read more CD

Joe MooneyLush Life ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderfully moody vocal outing from Joe Mooney – a lesser-remembered singer from the 50s, but one of our favorite talents from that generation! Joe's got a style of singing that's in the more fragile mode of male vocalizing – similar to Matt Dennis, but a bit more boozy overall ... read more CD

MGM, 1961. Sealed ... $28.99
Page Morton's floating in a sea of red on the cover of this rare album – and the music has her swimming in a similarly watery style too!

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona!

Lovely late work from Freda Payne! Come Back To Me Love is a bit of a throwback to her jazzier 60s years – with a mix of larger scale swing oriented tunes, and more intimate strings and piano backed ballads. It's a welcome move! The album is a win on all fronts. Her voice remains ... read more CD

Jimmy Rushing/Ada Moore/Buck ClaytonCat Meets Chick ... LP
Columbia, 1956. Very Good ... $7.99
An interesting set – kind of a parody of the Girl Meets Boy album that had been issued a year or two before on Columbia – done with vocals by Jimmy and Ada Moore, and recorded as a "story in jazz" about love, love found, and love lost. Jimmy and Ada sing both separately and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Deutsche Grammophon, 2009. Used ... $6.99
An interesting experiment in styles – songs originally composed by Guillaume De Wachaut in the 14th century, re-conceived here in a host of Brazilian, African, and jazz-based modes! The project's put together by producer/arranger Robert Sadin – but really benefits greatly with help ... read more CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $9.99
A unique moment from the legendary Jimmy Scott – a one-off album cut for Atlantic Records – recorded after his initial 50s fame, and decades before he'd finally get his due, much later in his life! The album's got a style that's a bit more mature than Scott's initial sides – a ... read more CD

Seung-HeeWaiting ... CD
Seung-Hee, 2007. Used ... $4.99
Lovely work from vocalist Seung-Hee – a singer who really knows how to stretch out, even on more familiar numbers – finding an expressive space that makes her voice come across almost more like an instrument at times! Backing here is by a quartet with piano and tenor, but Seung-Hee's ... read more CD

Mellow, magical, and moody – a sublime set from the great Jack Sheldon – working both as a vocalist and jazz trumpeter!

Dinah ShoreLower Basin Street Revisited ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $9.99
A great later date from Dinah Shore – one that pays tribute to her initial rise to fame on the Lower Basin Street show – but which actually comes across much more in a groovy 60s style overall! Jack Elliott handles the arrangements, and he brings in a punched-up sort of rhythm that ... read more CD

Ben SidranDon't Let Go ... CD
MCA/Blue Thumb (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible ... read more CD
