Ernestine AndersonErnestine Anderson – The Toast Of The Nation's Critics ... CD
Mercury, 1958. Used ... $6.99
One of Ernestine's early albums for Mercury – a bit unsure as to its direction: soul jazz, straight ballad vocals, or a bit of vocalese jazz – but that's kind of what makes it interesting! Pete Rugolo conducts the group on the session – and he also contributed the original tune ... read more CD

A tribute to Billie Holiday, but one that's way different than the usual – as you'd probably guess from the image of Dee Dee Bridgewater on the cover!

Capitol, 1953. Used ... $4.99

Paige ClairePaige Claire (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Vivid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $23.99
An obscure bit of LA pop from the early 70s – featuring the breathy Paige Claire, a heavenly vocalist with a sound like a porn star! The album's got arrangements by Al Capps and Harry Betts, and kind of an early 70s easy sound to it that works wonderfully with Paige's voice. She's a better ... read more CD

Georgie FameShorty ... CD
CBS/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $4.99
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences!

Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99

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
