New Abbey LincolnThat's Him! ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Abbey Lincoln's earliest albums – an all star session recorded with backing by Kenny Dorham, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Max Roach! Abbey's still pretty straight at this point – singing a variety of wispy love songs and emotional tunes – but she's also bringing a bit more feeling to the material than most singers of her generation – hinting at the sharper tones that would come just a few years later in her work! And given the strength of the sidemen alone, the album's already a cut above most jazz vocal records from the time – but really takes on a strong voice when Abbey opens up on some of the best numbers on the set. Titles include "Strong Man", "My Man", "That's Him", "Don't Explain", "I Must Have That Man", and "When A Woman Loves A Man". CD

New Mark MurphyWho Can I Turn To? ... CD
Immediate (UK), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunningly great album by Mark Murphy, recorded in the UK in the mid-60s for the mostly-rock Immediate label – but certainly one of his best from that decade! The album sees the American jazz singer teaming up with Kenny Napper, Ronnie Scott's bassist, on a set of arrangements that are completely different from those on other Murphy albums – especially his American ones. In fact, the sound and style is very similar to that used on some of the early Scott Walker solo albums – which is no surprise since Napper, in Ronnie Scott's band, backed up Walker during his rare solo live engagements. The album also boasts other British jazz greats – like Tony Coe, Kenny Baker, and Alan Branscombe – and it's got a beautifully airy quality that works perfectly with Murphy's rich, tightly-controlled voice. Titles include "Star Sounds", "You'd Better Love Me", "In Love for The Very First Time", "Talk To Me Baby", "That's What Makes A Girl", and "Who Can I Turn To?". Nice one! CD
