Morgana KingIt's A Quiet Thing ... LP
Reprise, 1965. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A rich effort from Morgana King – the first of her rare Reprise LPs – and a record that shows incredible range and an ability to bring a heavy, textural mood to just about any kind of tune! Torrie Zito's arrangements on It's A Quiet Thing are lush, but, well, quietly so – and Morgana's vocals can build from what's kind of a deep vibrato hush to a really soaring affect! It's nice stuff – with an approach to well known songs of the time that's quite unique! Titles include "It's A Quiet Thing", "Dindi", "Gone With The Wind", "Little Blue Girl", "Mountain High, Valley Low", "How Insensitive", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Deep Song" and "If You Should Leave Me".

Morgana KingNew Beginnings ... LP
Paramount, 1973. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A completely hip little record from Morgana King – one that takes her amazing voice, and sets it amidst some expansive arrangements that push past jazz to include some trippier 70s styles! The whole session's got a nice mix of the mellow and baroque – with a subtle funky undercurrent at points, and definitely a fair bit more soul than we're used to hearing from Morgana! Arrangements are by Torrie Zito and Bob James – and the production often compresses the vocals in a really cool way – sliding them amidst the instrumentation with a haunting quality that's hard to describe in words, but which makes the album one of King's most breathtaking ever! The back cover has Morgana getting props from Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Paul Williams, and Kenny Rankin – all names we can certainly trust – and titles include a great version of "We Could Be Flying", "All In All", "A Song For You", "Like A Seed", and "The Sands Of Time & Changes".

King FamilyKing Family Show ... LP
Warner, 1965. Sealed ... $0.99
A set that was issued by Warner Brothers in relation to the King Family TV program of the mid 60s – a surprisingly popular variety show that featured the core King Sisters quartet, plus a really expanded lineup that included their kids, husbands, and other family members joining in! Our favorite cuts here are those that have the leanness of the Sisters' earlier sides for Capitol – tighter harmonies than some of the kid cuts, and some great use of the singing steel guitar of Alvino Rey. Full family numbers are nice, but a bit clunkier – and there's also some solo numbers here too. Titles include "Line The Track", "My Favorite Things", "Irving Berlin Medley", "I Used To Love You", "The Square", "Amen", and "Love At Home". LP, Vinyl record album

King PleasureGolden Days ... LP
Hi Fi, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Beautiful beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. Plus, the liner notes include a cool set of notes about Pleasure's crazy philosophy called Planetism. Wild stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A classic bit of vocalese, featuring a split LP of tracks by the great King Pleasure, plus some early stuff by Annie Ross (of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross fame). The tracks on the LP include Ross' early interpretations of Wardell Gray's classics "Twisted" and "Farmer's Market", and the King Pleasure set includes classics like "Red Top", "This Is Always", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and his great duet with Jon Hendricks, "Don't Get Scared". A landmark LP of jazz vocal sides, and one that no fan of vocalese should be without. LP, Vinyl record album

King SistersNew Sounds Of The Fabulous King Sisters ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A set that recreates the sweet harmony style the first four King Sisters brought to the music world in the late 50s – but updates their sound wonderfully with some hip 60s flair! Ralph Carmichael handles the arrangements, and he borrows from a lot of the best sorts of 60s pop vocal modes – touches of bossa here, groovy jazz there, mixed in with the warmer strings that are usually the Carmichael approach! There's a bit of Jimmy Bowman-esque bass bumping along the bottom at times, which makes for an especially nice groove – and titles include "Goin Out Of My Head", "Girl Talk", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Call Me", "I'm Old Fashioned", "Bluesette", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", and "Don't Go To Strangers".

Four King CousinsIntroducing The Four King Cousins ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Around November 19, 2014
Very groovy work from the Four King Cousins – a sweet quartet of lovely voices peeled off of the larger King Family ensemble, singing here in a spare and syncopated groove with lots of late 60s Capitol touches! Maestro Lex De Azevedo produced, arranged, and conducted – and the album's got a really unified sound that links together harmonies from Sunshine Pop and a bit of the loping styles that were showing up in mainstream easy at the time – a sublime blend of vocals and lightly snapping rhythms that's totally outta site! All tracks are covers, but done in really wonderful versions – and tunes include the great Roger Nichols track "I Fell", plus "Love So Fine", "God Only Knows", "California Nights", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "I Wanna Be Free".

New Morgana KingLet Me Love You ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A very early session from Morgana King – but one that already has her amazing vocal approach firmly in place! Instrumentation is very light – just a small combo with Jimmy Jones on piano, Chuck Wayne on guitar, Sam Most on flute, Chauncey Welsch on trombone, and Johnny Cresci on drums – and Morgana dominates most of the tracks with a fluid, reaching approach to the tunes that's really great. Arrangements are by Willis Schafer, and titles include "The End Of A Love Affair", "All Or Nothing At All", "That Ole Devil Called Love", "Mad About Him Sad Without Him How Can I Be Glad Without Him Blues", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "I'll Remember April" – plus 2 versions of "I've Found A New Baby".

New Morgana KingWild Is Love ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A playfully swinging little set from Morgana King – given the groovy, latenight lounge Reprise sound by producer Jimmy Bowen! This second album for Reprise is a much more extroverted than the quite strong It's A Quiet Thing LP from a year before – with arranger Torrie Zito grooving out into a lightly swinging sound, in place of his chillier, almost noir approach on the previous LP! Morgana's vocals are tastefully grand – doing more with a hushed tone and an unrivaled vibrato than many more famous peers can do with a showier style! Titles include "Anything Goes", "Nobody Else But Me", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "You Fascinate Me So", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Wild Is Love" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Nat King ColeAfter Midnight – The Complete Session ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes jazz greats like Harry Edison, Willie Smith, Jual Tizol, and Jack Costanzo. Plus, if that's not enough, this fab CD adds a whopping batch of extra tracks to the original LP – for a total of 18 beauties that sound perfect on a warm summer night, long after the sun has gone down. Titles include "Caravan", "Candy", "What Is There To Say", "You're Looking At Me", and "Blame It On My Youth". Great stuff! CD

Annisteen AllenFujiyama Mama ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $4.99
Seminal sides by one of the first great female singers of R&B – the mighty Annisteen Allen, a vocalist who was first known for her great work in the band of Lucky Millinder, but later stepped out on her own as an even bigger solo act! Annisteen's got a style that predates Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, and other key 50s R&B singers – a mode with roots in swing, but delivery that's much harder-hitting overall – perfect for the transitional R&B years in which she worked! The collection features key sides by Allen recorded for the King and Capitol labels – packaged together with great notes on her full career, and a huge set list that's extremely comprehensive. CD features 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "Mine All Mine", "Yes I Know", "Mr Trumpet Man", "Too Long", "Lies Lies Lies", "Down By The River", "My Brand Of Loving", "Wheels Of Love", "Fujiyama Mama", "Nothing Can Replace You", "I've Got Troubles", "Hard To Get Along", and "Slow But Sure".

New Ann BurtonAnn Burton Sings For Lovers & Other Strangers ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest, moodiest albums ever recorded by Dutch singer Ann Burton – a set that features some of the more creative arrangements she ever received on record – put together by guitarist Wim Overgaauw, and featuring organ work from both Rob Madna and Rob Franken! Burton's always great, but here she hits some of the more compelling European styles that singers like Karin Krog and Monica Zetterlund were working through in the late 60s – maybe not as openly avant at times, but quite far from the usual singer-with-trio sort of records that she previously cuts. Burton's phrasing is especially great – slow, careful, and with a kind of inventiveness that reminds us of Morgana King at her hippest – and titles include "For No One", "Sweet William", "Got To Get You Into My Life", "For All We Know", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", and "Business Goes On As Usual".

There's some great keyboards behind Freddy's vocals – nice and mellow on the best tracks – and titles include "Dancing Eyes", "Like A Quiet Storm", "I Need Your Love So Much", "All We Need is A Place", "You & I", and "He Was The King".

Jack JonesWives & Lovers ... LP
Kapp, 1963. Very Good ... $1.99
Jack Jones at the pinnacle of his early fame! Wives & Lovers is a gem of a set – issued hot on the heels of Jones' famous recording of the Burt Bacharach title hit – and presented with some great arrangements from Marty Paich, Glenn Osser, Pete King, and Ralph Carmichael! The style's a great mix of light strings and jazz – often spare enough to let Jack's vocals dominate strongly, but always in a way that's beautifully poised, balanced, and never overly indulgent. There's a slight hint of iciness in Jack's voice, but it's only a thin one – a slight layer of manner that holds back the depth of emotion lurking right below the surface. Titles include the classic "Wives & Lovers", plus "Charade", "I Wish You Love", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Angel Eyes", "I'm Moody", "Summertime Promises", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", and "Nina Never Knew".

Julie LondonLondon By Night ... LP
Liberty, 1959. Very Good ... $29.99
Breathy vocals from the great Julie London – an album recorded early in her years on Libery Records, but with a slightly full sound overall! Backings are by the orchestra of Pete King – a little heavy on the strings, but never too much so – just enough to give the tunes a sad-tinged sort of sound that glows and shimmers nicely behind Julie's vocals – very much in the moody feel you might expect from the trashy image of London in an alley on the cover! The set's never sleepy, and has a nicely dark undercurrent – on titles that include "Nobody's Heart", "The Exciting Life", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Well Sir", "In The Middle Of A Kiss", "Pousse Cafe", "Mad About The Boy", and "My Man's Gone Now".

Julie LondonLove On The Rocks ... LP
Liberty, 1963. Very Good- ... $6.99
A record that has Julie London already hitting that great "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" mode of later years – the adult, informed approach that showed that the teasing nude of the 50s had turned into a pleasing woman of the 60s – capable of frank presentation of material and assumption of desire that other singers often still just toyed with. Peter King handles the arrangements, and mixes soft strings with lighter modes to really flesh out Julie's simple but effective delivery of the tunes. Titles include "Love On The Rocks", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "What's New", "How Did He Look", "The End Of A Love Affair", and "Where Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

Gregory PorterLiquid Spirit ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Gregory Porter arrives on Blue Note Records – and the result is Porter's most fully-formed set so far – just the kind of album that will push him firmly into the limelight – a place that we've felt he's deserved for quite a few years! Porter's a hell of a singer, and a hell of a songwriter too – and although his roots are in jazz, he's got a rare ability to step between genres with plenty of soul – a special space that belongs to a very rare few – like Nina Simone, Bill Withers, Roberta Flack, or Gil Scott-Heron! Gregory's voice is amazing, his lyrics are both personal and pointed – and he does so much here with so little, the album should be handed out to the hundreds of mis-directed vocalists who think that a few extra tweaks in the studio is all they really need. Most numbers just feature small combo backing, with wonderfully warm piano from Chip Crawford – and the whole thing's got a timeless feel that makes us think this is the beginning of a rich new season for Porter. Titles include "Free", "Water Under Bridges", "Lonesome Lover", "Liquid Spirit", "No Love Dying", "Brown Grass", "When Love Was King", and "Wind Song". CD

Joe Williams with Lambert Hendricks & RossSing Along With Basie (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of Basie album for ABC, but handled here with a bit more of an edge, and a rougher, more freewheeling groove that's a better fit for the great Basie sound of the late 50s – a great adaptation of the groove by Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, and Annie Ross! Titles include "Every Tub", "Rusty Dusty Blues", "The King", "Shorty George", and "Let Me See". CD
