New Herb Alpert & Lani HallI Feel You ... CD
Concord, 2011. Used .... $9.99
A pairing of classic A&M talents Herb Albert & Lani Hall – covering well known numbers by Van Morrison, Peggy Lee, The Beatles and comparably lesser known gems with vibrant, genuine passion – clearly doing it for purely for the love of great music after all these years! The sunny, Latin rhythms and sunny, breezy jazzy grooves of records from the 60s & 70s is here in full force on titles that include "Moondance", "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" (which really soars), "There Will Never Be Another You", "Fever", "Here Comes The Sun", "Blackbird", "I Feel You", "'Til There Was You", "Club Esquina" and more.

Chiemi Eri & Carl JonesCrazy Rhythm ... CD
King (Japan), 1962. Used .... $14.99
Plenty of crazy rhythms here – as singers Chiemi Eri and Carl Jones are joined by Japanese jazzmen who include Nobuo Hara & His Sharps & Flats, saxophonists Sadao Watanabe and Sleepy Matsumoto, guitarist Shungo Sawada, and the Hideo Shiraki Quintet! The backings on all tracks are superb – and elevate the already-great team of Eri and Jones to a wonderful new level – one that easily matches some of the hippest vocal jazz sessions cut in the US during the same period, especially some of the more inventive albums on the soul jazz side of the spectrum. Titles include "The Big Twister", "My Funny Valentine", "Just Squeeze Me", "Love Is Here To Stay", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Midnight Sun Will Never Set". CD

New Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used .... $6.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

Kimiko ItohFollow Me (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Sony, 1988. Used .... $14.99
Sweet vocals in a spare setting – sung in English by Japanese vocalist Kimiko Itoh, and recorded in New York with arrangements by Richard Tee and Steve Gadd! Given their presence, there's a distinctly 70s feel to the album, despite the date of the session – and most numbers move gently along with Fender Rhodes from Tee, drums from Gadd, bass from Eddie Gomez, and some occasional strings to sweeten things up. The Rhodes behind Itoh's vocals really sounds great – and titles include "Intimate Strangers", "So Foolish Is Love", "He's Gone", "If I Loved You", "Second Chance", "Meet Me On The Moon", and "Follow Me".

Janet LawsonJanet Lawson Quintet (aka Dreams Can Be) ... CD
Cambria, 1983. Used .... $19.99
Very hip vocal work from singer Janet Lawson – an under-discovered vocalist with a very groovy sound! Janet's got a soaring, breezy feel that's a bit like some of the best Bay Area or European work from a few years before – inflected with some Brazilian influences, but also delivered with an American approach overall – all in a mix of sung and scatted vocals! There's a vibe here that's a bit like Monica Linges or Rimona Francis, but perhaps even freer and harder grooving, as Janet never stops for a ballad, and likes to riff away on the hippest work she can find. This long out of print set features vocal versions of "Better Get It In Your Soul" and "Hot House" – plus the originals "Dreams Can Be" and "Break Free" – all supported by acoustic small combo instrumentation, with some great work on sax and flute from Roger Rosenberg.
