Freda PayneCome Back To Me Love ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
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

Sarah VaughanI Love Brazil ... CD
Pablo, 1977. Used ... $5.99
Sarah does love Brazil – and the album's one of a number recorded in a Brazilian mode later in her career – in a way that really helped her breathe new life into her music by finding a different groove to work with! The arrangements here are relatively full – handled by Edson ... read more CD

Sarah VaughanSweet N Sassy ... CD
Roulette, 1963. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked vocal gem from Sarah Vaughan – recorded in the early 60s with some sweet arrangements by a young Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was just getting his start on the US scene at the time – and for the set, he's working in a mode that has some of the fuller, richer orchestrations ... read more CD

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

New 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

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

Dinah WashingtonDinah '63 ... CD
Roulette, 1963. Used ... $6.99
Dinah follows up her Dinah 62 set with an equally well-done set of tracks for 1963! The album's got that great, late Dinah Washington sound – that boozy style with heavy arrangements that she used often at Roulette, and which really seemed to help ease her vocals into a more modern setting. ... read more CD

Dinah WashingtonDinah Jams ... CD
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

RCA (Japan), 1956. Used ... $18.99
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... read more CD

Andy Williams with Hank JonesYoung At Heart (plus bonus track) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $22.99
Andy Williams like you've never heard him before – singing jazz, and doing a hell of a job of it, too! Sure, Andy was known as a mainstream singer from his TV show of the 60s – but he could also work well in a jazz mode, too – especially with great small combo backing like this! ... read more CD

Really great material from Andy Williams – some of the grooviest sounds we've ever heard from the singer, thanks to backings from Quincy Jones! The set features live sides cut for the Let's Go To Town show issued for radio by the National Guard – and the album's got a similar feel to ... read more CD
