Mark MurphyHip Parade ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Very Good ... $7.99
A real turning point in the career of singer Mark Murphy – a great session for Capitol from 1960, done with creative arrangements from Bill Holman, and a sound that opens up strongly from Murphy's Decca years! In a way, the record is one of the first times that Murphy really got to do what he wanted to on record – and working with Holman, he really opens up in the inventive, expressive modes that would mark the Murphy sound of later years – a style that was light years ahead of other male singers in jazz! Some tracks have small combo backings, others have big band, and a few feature support from a larger chorus – but throughout the entire set it's clear that Mark's not just a run of the mill pop singer on Capitol, and can sing here with a level of jazz that few others on the label ever matched! Titles include "Firefly", "Lonesome Town", "Catch A Falling Star", "All The Way", "Venus", "Send For Me", and "Personality". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing, with promo sticker. Cover has half split seams and some pen on back.)

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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.)

Nancy AmesLatin Pulse ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on tracks one through three. Cover has light ring & edge wear, a small split on the bottom seam, and some discoloration on the back along the opening.)

Jon HendricksRecorded In Person At The Trident ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
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.)

Jack JonesJack Jones Sings ... LP
Kapp, 1966. Sealed ... $3.99
Jack Jones sings, and beautifully too – on the kind of mellow album that few male singers made so well in the 60s! The set's got a great mix of jazz sensibility and straighter vocal singing – backed by light strings from Ralph Carmichael, but also a bit of tinkling piano from Doug Talbert – in a mode that floats easily with Jones' tremendous vocals. There's a depth here that's really wonderful – a quality that re-ignites even familiar tunes, but which sounds especially great on a few of the album's lesser-known numbers. Tracks include "I Don't Care Much", "Somewhere There's Someone", "Love After Midnight", "Somewhere My Love", "The Shining Sea", "A Day In The Life Of A Fool", and "The Face I Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout mark.)

Joe Lee WilsonSecrets From The Sun ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of the hippest albums ever from singer Joe Lee Wilson – a righteous vocalist with a style we'd rank right up there with Leon Thomas or Andy Bey in the 70s! The album's got an easygoing vibe that's a nice change from some of Joe's other records – a quality that's never too forced, and which has Wilson sliding into the tunes wonderfully without any sort of gimmicks or tricks. His voice often has a nice crackle, which further underscores his instrument-inspired approach – and also makes the lyrics sound that much more wonderful too. The set was produced by Noah Howard, possibly in Paris – and it features a quartet with Bobby Few on piano, Steve Sax on saxes and flute, Jack Gregg on bass, and Al Levitt on drums. Includes the lovely originals "Dedicated To My Father", "Come & See", and "Secrets From The Sun" – plus a great take on Billy Gault's "Mode For Trane". LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy WilsonThis Mother's Daughter ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of Nancy Wilson's hippest albums from the 70s – a great record of smooth mellow tracks produced by Eugene McDaniels, handled with some nice jazzy flourishes, and a warm soulful sound that brings out the best in Nancy's vocals! If you've dug her vocals on the Life, Love, & Harmony album, you'll find that this one's pretty similar – with some great easily grooving tunes that well mark her move into modern soul – and a sophistication that goes way beyond her work of the 60s! Titles include "China", "I Don't Want A Sometimes Man", "From You To Me To You", "Stay Tuned", "When We Were One", and "Now". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Witherspoon with Jack McDuffBlues Is Now ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
A much groovier set than usual from vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon – thanks to some great backing from the combo of organist Jack McDuff, which also includes guitar from a young Melvin Sparks! The sound here is definitely in keeping with the "blues" in the title – but McDuff's instrumentation brings in a fair bit of jazz as well – and really opens up the tunes with some of the playful rhythms he was laying down on his own records for Prestige in the 60s. And as usual, Witherspoon proves that he's every bit as much a jazz singer as a blues vocalist – by changing things up nicely on most of the tunes, and bringing in inflections that go way past a typical bluesy singing mode. The whole thing's nice and lively, with a really unique feel that's all its own – and titles include "Sweet Slumber", "My Money's Long This Morning Baby", "Part Time Woman", "Late One Evening", "SK Blues", and "Past Forty Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track four. Cover has light wear, some seam splitting, some sticker residue in one corner, and stains and pencil inside the gatefold. Labels have some sticker residue and marker.)

New Carmen McRae with the Clarke Boland Big BandNovember Girl (Jazzman pressing) ... LP
Jazzman, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare gem from the Clarke Boland Big Band – and one of the group's few vocal sessions ever! The album's a really unique one – recorded in the UK in 1970, and featuring singer Carmen McCrae joining the group for a fresh and unusual batch of tracks – most of them originals written for the session! The CBBB is in fine fine form throughout – hard-swinging with an impossibly tight sound, and featuring solo work by Tony Coe, Sahib Shihab, and Billy Mitchell. But even more surprising is Carmen – really opening up on the record, thanks to the fresh, new material – and hitting dark moods that perfectly fit the November Girl title of the session! Titles include "Just Give Me Time", "A Handful Of Soul", "Dear Death", "My Kinda World", and "November Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)
