Norma WinstoneSomewhere Called Home ... CD
ECM, 1987. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
Mature work from Norma Winstone – a tremendous evolution in style from her earlier recordings in the UK jazz/rock scene – much more subtle, and delivered with a compelling degree of sensitivity! Winstone is on vocals throughout, and the only instrumental backing is from the piano of John Taylor, and clarinet and tenor of Tony Coe – both well-chosen players for a session like this, given that both had also matured greatly by the time – working with just the right sense of subtlety and space to match Winstone's evocative vocals. Titles include "Cafe", "Sometime Ago", "Prologue", "Out Of This World", "Tea For Two", "Celeste", and "Sea Lady". CD

New Rosemary ClooneyCBS Radio Recordings 1955 to 1961 (5CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, Late 50s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful setting for the great Rosemary Clooney – an excellent singer at all times, but maybe heard here in some of her best recordings ever! The tracks all appear here for the first time on record – pulled from the vaults of CBS, where Clooney recorded the material over the course of a few years with small combo backings from keyboardist Buddy Cole – in a style that was similar to some of the best Bing Crosby radio work of the time! Rosemary really sparkles in the setting – free from some of the hoke or gimmicks of some of her other 50s records – and able to both show off her jazz pipes in a swinging style, and hit these beautifully personal moments on the ballads. Cole himself plays piano, organ, harpsichord, and celeste – and the group features just guitar from Vince Terri, bass from Don Whitaker, and drums from Nick Fatool – quite a change from the bigger backings on Rosemary's other albums. The work is a real revelation – an exposure of this side of Clooney's talent to all of us who weren't fortunate to catch it the first time around – and the whole thing is put together in the best Mosaic style – with a whopping 104 tracks on 5CDs – all with excellent sound, and a full booklet of notes and photos! CD
