Reprise (Japan), 1961. New Copy .... $13.99
Maybe the grooviest album cut by singer Mavis Rivers – thanks to some wonderful backings from west coast jazzman Marty Paich! Paich brings a cool compressed swing to the set – a groove that's very similar to his sublime late 50s work with Mel Torme, which is a great choice for Mavis ... read more CD

New Mavis RiversSwing Along With Mavis ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1961. New Copy .... $14.99
An overlooked early 60s gem from singer Mavis Rivers – recorded for the young Reprise label, and with a nice little bounce that really works well with her vocals! Mavis definitely sings jazz, but often has an undercurrent of R&B – particularly in her range, which is often pushing ... read more CD

Vanguard, 1954/1955. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Vocalist Jimmy Rushing first came to fame working with Count Basie in the 30s, but it wasn't until the 50s that he really got the chance to step out on his own and cut a number of great sessions in the studio!

Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $13.99
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-Hee, 2007. Used .... $9.99
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

Sue & Ralph SharonMr & Mrs Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy .... $13.99
Mr & Mrs Jazz – and their cool cousins too – given that the combo also features some sublime tenor sax from JR Monterose, in addition to vocals from Sue and piano from Ralph! The set's a much harder-edged date than you might guess from the cover – and Sharon's approach to ... read more CD

Dinah ShoreLower Basin Street Revisited ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy .... $14.99
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

A real standout 70s set from Nina Simone – a one-off date for CTI Records, done with a sound that's different than her earlier work for RCA, Philips, and Colpix! The groove here is often as soul-based as it is vocal jazz – thanks to arrangements from David Matthews, who brings a ... read more CD

Sinatra's final album for Capitol – a contemplative set of tracks that reunites him with arranger Alex Stordahl, a frequent partner during the Columbia years, and an artist who's matured as much as Frank by this point, making a perfect fit for the sadder tone of the material. Tracks are in ... read more CD
