New Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... LP
MPS, 1971. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the first albums cut by the fab Singers Unlimited – and the set that has them backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! The Singers always mixed well with guest jazz talents – and the style of this albums gives their sweet harmonies a nice jazz-based groove and not too much cheese on the top – one of the leanest instrumental settings from their MPS era, and a nicely gliding groove that supports their voices wonderfully! The record includes great versions of "The Gentle Rain", "Once Upon A Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and Thad Jones' great "A Child Is Born" – as well as a pretty crazy rendition of "Sesame Street"! LP, Vinyl record album

New Milton BananaMilton Banana (1972) ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Another great one from this fab Brazilian drummer! Milton's bossa trio sound here is expanded slightly on some tracks – with additional percussion sneaking in a bit, and hints of flute or sax filling out the groove with some really great solo work. The album features a stellar version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Minha Escola", "Essa Menina", "Ela", "Encabulada", "Moca Branca Da Favela", and "Testamento". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

Fabrizio BossoPurple ... CD
Verve (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
A really unusual project for this great Italian trumpeter – a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

James Darren/Shelley Fabares/Paul PetersenTeenage Triangle ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A trio of pop talents you'd normally find on TV – Paul Peterson and Shelly Fabares from the Donna Reed Show, plus James Darren, who'd also done some work for the same program as well – brought together here in a classic 60s album that allows each of their stars to shine brightly on their own! Every singer gets a set of their own tracks for the record – Fabares in the same style as her excellent records with producer/arranger Stu Phillips, Peterson at a level that's maybe a bit more throwaway kid pop, and Darren with a surprisingly strong presence that belies his record as the strongest recording star of the three. Titles include "She Can't Find Her Keys", "Keep Your Love Locked", and "Lollipops & Roses" by Paul Peterson; "Johnny Angel", "I'm Grlwoing Up", and "Johnny Loves Me" by Shelly Fabares; and "Her Royal Majesty", "Goodbye Cruel World", and "Conscience" by James Darren.

Dida with Roy HargroveDida Plays & Sings ... CD
Red (Italy), 2011. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A sweet little set from Dida – a singer who also plays a mighty nice jazz guitar – a cool combination, especially for a female artist – stepping out wonderfully here in a well-recorded set! Trumpeter Roy Hargrove guests on a few tracks, and Fabio Morgera joins on a few more – but we're more than compelled enough by the core sounds of Dida's trio, which has this timeless feel in its construction of guitar, bass, and drums – almost a late 40s sort of vocal jazz cool – but somehow coming across with a very contemporary vibe that belies the Brooklyn recording location for the album. Titles include "Fried Pies", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Calcutta Cutie", "Ir Atzuva It's A Sad City", "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", and "That's All". CD

Jazz A La Mode TrioLess Is More ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
A sweet Italian combo, and one who's got a very classic soul jazz sort of feel – a 60s-styled blend of Hammond and tenor that's mighty nice, and very much in the spirit of the vintage look of the cover! The record's got a great no-nonsense feel – just the right production to fit the group's soaring organ lines and hard-biting saxophone – spun out here over a host of classics from 60s, plus a few tasty originals too. The combo features Fabio Nobile on drums – who you might know from previous work in a more contemporary style – plus Sam Gambarini on Hammond, Alessandro Scala on tenor, and some guest trumpet from Marco Tamburini. Titles include "Bus Ride", "Money In The Pocket", "Fire Eater", "Funkallero", "Mambo In", "This I Dig Of You", and "Alligator Boogaloo". CD

New Hod O'BrienAutumn Leaves – The Fabulous Hod O'Brien Trio ... CD
Blue Jack Jazz (Netherlands), 1986. Used ... $9.99
Hod O'Brien just like we like him – playing in a relaxed, live setting with a great approach to the piano – one that's never too overstated, but which is filled with continually creative moments that really hold our attention! O'Brien's one of those players that never seems to fully get his due – a quiet genius who often works out of the spotlight, but in ways that are quietly beautiful, and which always deserve more attention. This date's just the sort that could bring that to Hod – a simple, elegant set of trio material – recorded overseas with Harry Emmery on bass and John Engels in drums – opening up on a set of tunes that includes "Minority", "Autumn Leaves", "Oleo", "Solar", "Pent-Up House", "My Romance", and "Laverne Walk".

New Claude WilliamsonFabulous Claude Williamson Trio ... CD
Contract/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1961. Used ... $11.99
Claude Williamson was a great little piano player back in the day – an important, but lesser-known, part of the LA scene of the 50s and 60s – with a rare few albums to his name! We've only recently begun to appreciate Claude's style on the keys – a fluid blend of a number of different popular styles, done with a swinging and light touch – all of which you'll hear very nicely on this obscure trio session from 1961. The rhythm section includes the great Chuck Flores on drums, plus bass by Duke Morgan – and titles include "Nancy", "Anything Goes", "Witchcraft", "A Foggy Day", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me".

Teddy WilsonMr Wilson – The Fabulous Teddy Wilson At The Piano ... LP
Columbia, 1950. Very Good ... $4.99
Teddy Wilson's definitely fabulous here – playing with a sense of poise and timing that really links together a number of different piano jazz traditions – no surprise, given how many different scenes Teddy influenced! The setting is simple – just a trio format, with either Al Hall or Al McKibbon on bass, and JC Heard or Kansas Fields on drums – but throughout the record, Wilson is at center stage – working at a level that may well be solo, as his inherent sense of rhythm and swing comes through so strongly in his own notes, there need not be any role for any other instrumentation at all! Most tunes are familiar – but as with the best of Wilson's generation, they're completely remade and remodeled into very personal expressions. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "These Foolish Things", "Rosetta", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "I Surrender Dear", "Bess You Is My Woman", and "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove. Label has a small peeled spot.)

New VariousHarry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume 4 – Rhythmic Changes (200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. This 4th volume was never issued in the 50s – but finally saw the light of day as a collection in 2000 – still from older rare records, and still very much in the best spirit of the initial volumes. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this fourth volume features work by Jesse James, Monroe Brothers, Sister Clara Hudmon, Al Hopkins & The Buckle Busters, Uncle Dave Macon, Roosevelt Graves, The Carter Family, Arthur Smith Trio, Blue Sky Boys, Memphis Jug Band, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)
