Mike CampbellSecret Fantasy ... CD
Celeste (Japan), 1980s. Used .... $16.99
A 22 track collection of work by Mike Cambpell – a little-known Bay Area vocalist from the 80s, with a sweetly swinging style that's very much in the tradition of Mark Murphy, another San Francisco contemporary. The CD features 12 tracks from Campell's 1982 album Secret Fantasy, originally issued on the Palo Alto Jazz label – plus another 10 tracks from various sessions throughout the 80s, all with a similar warm small combo feel. The tracks are a mix of originals, standards, and some hipper fare from the left end of the jazz vocal spectrum – and titles include "Dat Dere", "Early", "Another Star", "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco", "Round Midnight", "Soft Strum Blues", "And It All Goes Round & Round", "Mystery", "Alone Again", and "High Wire".

New Doris DrewDelightful Doris Drew ... LP
Mode, 1957. Used .... Out Of Stock
A delightful session of west coast vocal jazz – done by singer Doris Drew, who we only know from this album! Doris has a sound that's a bit warmer than some of her contemporaries on the scene – and she's backed here by a great lineup that includes Marty Paich on both piano and celeste, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Herb Geller on alto, and Dave Pell on tenor – plus a bit of added string accompaniment from time to time. The sound is lush, but light – and amazingly recorded so that Doris' vocals stand out starkly on most of the numbers, especially the mellower ones. Titles include "I've Got The Sun In The Morning", "You & The Night & The Music", "I Love You", "I Cried For You", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Once You Find Your Guy", and "If I Should Lose You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a few light marks from old stickers in one corner, but the whole thing is quite nice overall.)

New Audrey MorrisVoice Of Audrey Morris ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. Used .... Out Of Stock
The voice of Audrey Morris is a great one – sweet, but also sad too – but never in a too-sentimental way, and perfect for the gentler touch of the Bethlehem label! Audrey's working here with backings penned by Marty Paich – who also plays celeste on the album, with a group that features Stu Williamson on trumpet, Bill Pitman on guitar, Joe Mondragon on bass, and Irv Cottler or Alvin Stoller on drums. Paich uses a bit of strings on the date – never too much, but just enough to underscore the sadness of the bluer tunes, and create a bit of softness on a few of the ballads – all in a way that's never too dramatic, and which always gives way to Audrey's vocals when they slide into the mix – preserving the intimate quality that always makes for her best sort of setting. The track selection is great – far more unusual than the typical Bethlehem vocal date, with some great late nite numbers that include "If Love Were All", "I Never Mention Your Name", "It's Always You", "What More Can A Woman Do", "Blue Turning Gray Over You", "I Go For That", and "I Wonder What Became Of Me".
