Helen MerrillNearness Of You/You've Got A Date With The Blues ... CD
Phoenix (Spain), 1957/1958/1959. Used ... $9.99
Icy brilliance from a young Helen Merrill – The Nearness Of You – a record that's easily the Mercury equivalent of June Christy's classic work on Capitol or Chris Connor's classics for Bethlehem! Helen's working here with small combo backings on all tracks – carved out with players who include Bobby Jaspar, Bill Evans, Oscar Pettiford, and George Russell – all swinging gently alongside the vocals, but also taking care to shade things in with some of the darker, bluer colors that always worked best for Merrill – and which made her voice echo with a depth that few other singers could match! Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "I Remember You", "Summertime", "Let Me Love You", and "All Of You". You've Got A Date With The Blues – maybe our favorite album ever from Merrill – certainly from the early days – and a unique outing cut for MGM's excellent Metrojazz label! The set's got a more laidback sound than Merrill's previous records – and a definite bluesy undercurrent too – one that comes through strongly in the piano and arrangements of Jimmy Jones, and in the tremendous tenor work from Frank Wess – whose playing on the record gives the set a soulful quality we're not used to hearing with Helen! Tunes all follow the theme of the title – but are done in really inventive ways, especially when Wess gets a chance to solo – and titles include "Blues In My Heart", "The Blues", "The Thrill Is Gone", "You've Got A Date With The Blues", "The Meaning Of The Blues", and "Vous M'Ebloussez".

New Arthur PrysockAll My Life (with bonus track) ... CD
Old Town/Big Break (UK), 1976. Used ... $8.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, instead of jazzy ballads, Arthur's working with some great midtempo grooves put together by John Davis – who produced and arranged, and gives the album all the full clubby depth of his own records with the Monster Orchestra! The mix of groove and grace, baritone and bump, soul and sophistication is all mighty great territory for Prysock – and titles include "When Love Is New", "One Broken Heart", "All My Life", "Love Makin Love To You", "I Wantcha Baby", and "All I Need Is You Tonight". Features a bonus single mix of "When Love Is New". CD

Bobby TroupBobby Troup Sings Johnny Mercer ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. Used ... $9.99
Hip vocalist Bobby Troup pays tribute to another fairly hip LA songwriter – the great Johnny Mercer, the man who helped to build Capitol Records in the late 40s! Mercer's tunes really helped pave the way for some of Troup's own writing – and Bobby's cool, laidback style makes the numbers sparkle even more than in any of Johnny's originals – a bit less hoke, and a lot more jazz. Part of that aspect also comes from the presentation – which has Troup working with west coast players who include Howard Roberts on guitar and Bob Enevoldsen on trombone – a lineup that gives the album a warm jazzy swing throughout. The set includes a nice version of "I'm With You", which Troup wrote with Mercer – plus classics like "Midnight Sun", "Cuckoo In the Clock", "Skylark", and "One For My Baby". CD

New VariousStanding On The Corner 1 – Watching The Girls Go By – 20 Cool Classics ... CD
EMI (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
20 very groovy tunes – all of them cheesy vocal numbers from the days when a singer was a singer! The set does a great job of dipping into the full range of EMI labels – Capitol, Liberty, and other imprints now held together by the nexus of international corporate holdings – offering up a blend of tunes that ranges from straight pop vocals to soundtrack themes, standards, and more! Titles include "Strangers In The Night" by Al Martino, "Standing On The Corner" by Dean Martin, "Angel Eyes" by Jack Jones, "Call Me" by Nancy Wilson, "Wives & Lovers" by Vic Damone, "Can't Get Used To Losing You" by Bobby Darin, "Music To Watch Girls By" by Matt Monro, "Moon River" by Danny Williams, "Mambo No 2" by George Shearing, and "True Love Ways" by Bobby Vee.
