Mark MurphyRah ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Great early work by Mark Murphy – a set that's different than the cool breeziness of his 70s work, and done with an approach that's a lot hipper than most of his 60s contemporaries! Ernie Wilkins handles the arrangements, and there's a rollicking soul jazz groove here that's a bit unusual for Murphy – but which makes for a nice change from his earlier work for Decca or Capitol. As with most of Mark's records, the tunes are very well-chosen, and go way past the obvious – a set list that includes Fran Landesman's great "Stoppin The Clock", Jon Hendricks' lyrics to Horace Silver's "Doodlin", Annie Ross' famous vocalese version of "Twisted", and hip takes on jazz standards "Green Dolphin Street", "Milestones", and "Out Of This World".

Mark MurphyStolen Moments ... LP
Muse, 1978. Very Good ... $5.99
One of his best for Muse, with a beautiful set of jazzy vocal grooves that includes his reading of "Stolen Moments" (later made famous by United Future Organization), plus "D.C. Farewell" and an excellent version of "Waters of March". Warm and breezy, with that perfect style that Murphy had for a brief while in the 70s – and which has continued to be such a huge influence on groovers today! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and aging.)

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the tracks are numbers that often have "blues" in the title – but the arrangements are by Al Cohn, and have a swinging approach that's in keeping with Murphy's other early 50s work. Titles include "Blues You're The Mother Of Sin", "Blues In My Heart", "Fiesta In Blue", "That's How I Love The Blues", "Blues In The Night", and a reading of "Senor Blues" that's worth the price of the record alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing. Cover has a small name in pen on front.)

New Mark MurphyMark Murphy Sings ... LP
Muse, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Arguably the best Mark Murphy album ever – a stunningly soulful, and slightly spiritual 70s session that features some of his hippest tunes ever – and backings from a Dave Matthews-arranged group that also includes The Brecker Brothers and Don Grolnick on keyboards! Titles include great vocal versions of "Naima", "Empty Faces", "Red Clay", "Maiden Voyage", and "Canteloupe Island". LP, Vinyl record album

Betty CarterAudience With Betty Carter ... LP
Bet Car, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A brilliant live set by Betty Carter, and a perfect summation of the underground soul that was bubbling through her work in the 70s! The Betty you hear here is way different than the Betty of earlier years – freer, more soulful, working in an unfettered setting that lets her take off on piano and vocals, working in a mode that's got a modal vibrant quality unmatched by most other singers! The album includes a great version of "Open The Door", a 25 minute reading of the landmark tune "Sounds", and the tracks "Tight", "Fake", "So", "My Favorite Things", "Caribbean Sun", and "I Think I Got It Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a mark from sticker removal.)

Jon HendricksRecorded In Person At The Trident ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Great live set recorded by Jon Hendricks during a time when he was making his home in the artsy community of Sausalito, on the San Francisco Bay. The set's recorded at the town's tiny Trident club, where Jon played for a while on a very regular basis, and the feeling is very relaxed and comfortable. The band includes players who would go on to make more of a name for themselves in the 70's – like Noel Jewkes and Flip Nunez – but the real focus is on Jon's rich, raspy, always-swingin' vocals. There's a lot of nice uptempo tracks that demonstrate his agile vocalese skills, including readings of "Yeh Yeh", "Watermelon Man", "Gimme That Wine", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Jon's Mumbles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label promo. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track three. Cover has ring & edge wear, a bit of splitting on the bottom seam, and some stains and promo stamps on the back.)

Jackie & RoyJackie Cain & Roy Kral (MCA) ... LP
MCA, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $3.99
Some of the coolest, grooviest work from this swinging jazz couple – wonderful vocal tracks from their rare 50s albums for ABC – with titles that include "Look Around", "The Glory Of Love", "Cake Walk", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Two Peas In A Pod", "Pent Up House", and "Kiss & Run".

Cleo Laine & Annie RossFacade ... LP
Fontana (UK), 1967. Very Good+ ... $13.99
An unusual vocal project – based on the writings of Edith Sitwell, with music composed by William Walton – but performed with a jazzy style by a small combo that includes John Dankworth on alto, Bernard Izen on trumpet, and Ray Swinfield on flute! LP, Vinyl record album

New Nina SimoneTo Love Somebody ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
One of Nina's greatest records – recorded with her cool combo that included Weldon Irvine! Weldon's on organ on the set, and he co-wrote the two-part track "Revolution" with Simone, one of the album's strongest numbers! That track is set amidst covers of other hip 60s material, including "Turn Turn Turn", "To Love Somebody", "I Can't See Nobody", and "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" – all done with a freely righteous style that has Nina cutting loose at the end of the 60s! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on"Revolution Part 1".)

New Lorez AlexandriaSing No Sad Songs For Me ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing album by Lorez Alexandria – probably our favorite-ever work by her! The record features arrangements by Riley Hampton, the Chicago soul genius who did work for a number of the city's best artists – most notably Walter Jackson – and his mixture of soul, strings, and jazz works perfectly for Lorez's amazing voice. The whole thing's incredibly dark – and even the joyous moments of the record seem tinged with a sadness that threatens to break through at any time. This sadness isn't cliched – as on the dozens of post-Billie Holiday albums that reached for a fake tearful sense of authenticity; it's a mature emotive expression by one of the 20th Century's greatest jazz singers. Titles include "A Loser's Lullaby", "Gloomy Sunday", "All My Love", "Who", and "Sing No Sad Songs For Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing, with deep groove. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on one track. Cover has some wear, some stains, a bit of seam splitting, and the remnants of a sticker.)

Sue RaneySongs For A Raney Day ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller modes on her later records. The album's got surprisingly understated arrangements by Billy May that have a nice jazzy edge – and Raney's vocals have all the wistful qualities you might guess from the title and cover! Titles include "A Blossom Fell", "Impossible", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "My Prayer", "Wanna Laugh?", "Rain On The Roof", and "Blue Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, some splitting on the spine, a peeled mark and sticker remnants on the front, and some stains on the back.)
