Joanie SommersLet's Talk About Love ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A very powerful little session from Joanie Sommers – and like most of her work from the time, one that's done in a great blend of jazz and mainstream pop!

Dusty SpringfieldWhere Am I Going ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the greatest of all Dusty Springfield albums – a gem of a record that mixes British pop, soul, and some very groovy orchestrations!

MGM/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $22.99
Great work from this British singer of the 50s – a vocalist whose tones match those of the best American gals on the west coast scene of the time! Rosemary Squires sings here with a well-crafted approach to the lyrics – never too over the top, but never too staid either – a ... read more CD

New Milton SuggsLyrical Vol 1 ... CD
Skiptone, 2012. Used ... $2.99
Genius work from a singer who makes us proud to live in the Windy City – vocalist Milton Suggs, who emerges here as a hell of a writer and arranger too!

Eric TaggSmilin' Memories ... CD
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
A sunny 70s set from Erik Tagg – a record that's halfway between blue-eyed soul and the warmer territory of singers like Kenny Rankin or Michael Franks! Like both of those artists, Erik Tagg's certainly got something of an ear for jazz, and chooses some great elements in the backdrops for ... read more CD

Leon ThomasLeon Thomas Album ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
Leon Thomas' first album for Flying Dutchman – and one of his best ever! The vibe is very similar to his work with Pharoah Sanders – with long modal tracks that bring out the best side of Thomas' spiritual vocalizations – especially on the 17 minute track "Pharoah's Tune ... read more CD

Verve, 1960. Used ... $8.99
Mel Torme takes on the sound of Broadway at the start of the 60s – but he does so in a very groovy way, thanks to hip backings from the amazing Marty Paich! The style here is as swinging and jazzy as the work that Mel and Marty cut together on the Bethlehem label in the late 50s – and ... read more CD

EmArcy, 1950s. Used ... $7.99
One of the fuller-sounding albums recorded by Sarah Vaughan for Emarcy in the 50s – a set of George Gershwin numbers, mostly set to large studio backings directed by Hal Mooney!

Sarah VaughanHow Long Has This Been Going On ... CD
Pablo (Japan), 1978. Used ... $16.99
A great little date – one that's presented here with a really classic sense of jazz vocal recording, but oddly the kind of record that Sarah Vaughn hardly ever got to make back in the 50s! The setting is spare and simple – backing by a quartet that includes Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, ... read more CD

A wonderfully strong set from singer Cecile Verny – thanks to a backing combo who's as proud and bold as her vocals! Often, a singer like this never gets the sort of groove she deserves – sometimes lost amidst some fuller R&B arrangements, or under-whelmed by trippier abstract ... read more CD

A bit different than some of Dinah Washington's other 60s work for Roulette – a set that's not entirely back to the blues promised in the title, but one that's definitely got a strong bluesy undercurrent!
