June ChristyGone For the Day ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... $0.99
That's "gone" – as in the way June Christy really sends us – vocals that take us to a place that few other 50s singers could ever hope to reach! June's work here is a masterpiece of melancholic understatement – far less overblown than some of her pop contemporaries, but also filled with feeling in a way that's different from some of the other icy singers of the time. A big part of the album's strength lies with arranger Pete Rugolo – who gives June here some of the same dark corners and modern elements you'd find in her classic Something Cool album – which really hits the right sort of emotion for Christy. Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "It's So Peaceful In the Country", "When You Awake", "Lazy Mood", and "Interlude". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing.)

New June ChristyMisty Miss Christy ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely transformed by the pair's masterful handling – and titles include "The Wind", "There's No You", "For All We Know", "This Year's Kisses", "That's All", and "Maybe You'll Be There". LP, Vinyl record album

New June ChristySomething Cool (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. Titles include "Something Cool", "It Could Happen To You", "Lonely House", and "I Should Care". This is the original 10" mono recording with 7 tracks – and a green and white cover that has June with eyes closed. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, partially split top and bottom seam, and some stains, with an ink stamp and a bit of pencil on the back.)

Capitol, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD
(Out of print version – with long-deleted bonus tracks! Small cutout notch through spine.)

Four FreshmenFour Freshmen & Five Trombones ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good- ... $7.99
A masterpiece – and possibly the greatest record ever by the Four Freshmen! The album is arranged by Kentonite Pete Rugolo, who gives it a very dark feel – similar to his amazing work on June Christy's Something Cool album (which is a perfect complement to this one) – and he's selected a core group of west coast jazzers to back the Freshmen up, including Barney Kessel, Shelly Manne, Frank Rosolino, and Claude Williamson. Don't worry about the "trombone" part, because the horns are used to provide dark deep washes of emotion to the songs – with the boys' vocals way out over the top, in mindblowing harmonies that could also exist perfectly without any backing. Titles include "Speak Low", "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "I Remember You", "Love", and "Guilty". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear, a split top seam, a small split on the bottom seam, and some pen on the back.)

Stan KentonKenton With Voices ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Sublime vocal work from Stan Kenton – some of his best experiments with voice! Kenton With Voices is from 1957 – and features a quartet called The Modern Men, singing in styles that are very much in the mode of classic Four Freshmen work with Pete Rugolo, plus some occasional solo leads by Ann Richards, hitting an icy June Christy-esque mode. The whole thing's great – really dark and moody, with tracks that include "Eager Beaver", "After You", "Walk Softly", "All About Ronnie", "Interlude", and "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original turquoise label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam and remnants of a price sticker.)

Julie LondonJulie London at Home ... LP
Liberty, 1960. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of Julie London's strongest overall albums – a great session that features small group backings with a warm and intimate feel! There's less of the languid sadness of some of Julie's other records, and more of the dreamy floating style of singers like Chris Connor or June Christy on this one. The feeling of the album's great, and it shows that Julie was much more than a pop singer with sexy looks and a smoky finish – although we're happy to hear that on here too! Titles include "Let There Be Love", "Goodbye", "You've Changed", "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To", "Lonesome Road", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "The Thrill Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has small seam splits.)

Sue RaneySongs For A Raney Day ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller modes on her later records. The album's got surprisingly understated arrangements by Billy May that have a nice jazzy edge – and Raney's vocals have all the wistful qualities you might guess from the title and cover! Titles include "A Blossom Fell", "Impossible", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "My Prayer", "Wanna Laugh?", "Rain On The Roof", and "Blue Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, some splitting on the spine, a peeled mark and sticker remnants on the front, and some stains on the back.)

Pete RugoloNew Sounds ... LP
Harmony/Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $2.99
A fantastic album from one of the greatest arrangers of the 50s! Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing. He went on to do some fantastic arranging works for the likes of June Christy and The Four Freshman – but also managed to cut a few great albums on his own over the years. Rugolo's work for Columbia featured groups that were filled with excellent west coast players, and in a manner that was similar to (but more interesting than) the work of Kenton, Rugolo gave ample space to the skillful soloists in the band. Titles include "Come Back Little Rocket", "The Shrike", "Latin Nocturne", "Manhattan Mambo", and "Quiet Village". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a split top seam and spine, and a small split on the bottom seam, with some stains and a name in pen on the back.)

New Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

VariousFrom The Vaults Volume 2 – Vine Street Divas ... CD
Capitol, 1940s. Used ... $9.99
During the 1940s, Capitol Records recorded some of the best female vocal records of the decade – blending swing with jazz and bits of emerging R&B, to cut sides that still sound pretty darn great today, and which are often used to define our sense of the classic American girl singer. This nicely-packaged set of 25 tracks features many of the label's biggest and best hits from their first decade – including "It Had To Be You" and "Doctor Lawyer Indian Chief" by Betty Hutton; "It's A Good Day", "Golden Earrings", "I Don't Know Enough About You", and "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Peggy Lee; "Long Ago And Far Away", "Day By Day", "Serenade Of The Bells", and "Some Enchanted Evening" by Jo Stafford; "Hurry On Down" by Nellie Lutcher; "I'll Walk Alone", "I Should Care", and "A Stranger In Town" by Martha Tilton; "Teardrops From My Eyes" by Helen O'Connell, "But Beautiful" by Margaret Whiting, "A Little Bird Told Me" by Blue Lu Barker, and "It's Been A Long, Long Time" by June Christy.

New Pete RugoloBehind Brigitte Bardot ... LP
Warner/Doxy, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 5, 2014
A very cool record! The album's sort of an American tribute to the emerging French sex goddess Brigitte Bardot – one that features a gatefold cover with a wraparound photo of Brigitte, and some nice images on the inside. Music on the set is by Pete Rugolo – the master arranger who'd worked with June Christy, Stan Kenton, and others – and although Bardot doesn't sing or even make an appearance on the set, Pete does more than enough of a good job of conjuring up her presence with a good selection of jazzy tunes. Players include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Paul Horn and Bud Shank on reeds, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar. Gloria Wood sings on one track – and titles include "Arsenic Blues", "Paris BB", "Jeff's Blues", "Mambo Bardot", "A T'Aimer", and "The Night Heaven Fell". LP, Vinyl record album

Four Freshmen5 Trombones & 5 Trumpets ... CD
Capitol/Collectors Choice, Late 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Nice one! We've always loved the swinging vocal harmonies of the Four Freshmen, but their best records have never been issued before on CD. Now, though, Collector's Choice have put out two of their best on one CD, and the set's got a whopping 24 cuts of groovy groovy harmony sounds that have influenced everyone from Brian Wilson to Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross. Both records feature stunning off-kilter arrangments by the great Pete Rugolo, who puts the material together in a way that's similar to his work on the classic June Christy sessions for Capitol from the same time. Groovy tracks abound, including "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "The Last Time I Saw Paris", "Somebody Loves Me", "Give Me the Simple Life", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Very groovy, but with a dark edge that's even more compelling! CD

New Chris ConnorChris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album in a legendary run of vocal jazz classics on Atlantic Records – and a set that really helped Chris Connor move to a new level of expression in her music! The sound here is much richer than Connor's previous recordings for Bethlehem – and the small combo jazz backings have been replaced by fuller orchestrations by Ralph Burns – done in a cool, edgey sort of way that really pushes Chris into newly sophisticated territory! The sound's on a par with the best June Christy/Pete Rugolo collaborations on Capitol – and the group's filled with some great jazz players, including Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "He Was Good to Me", "Where Are You", and "Get Out Of Town". LP, Vinyl record album

New Pete RugoloIntroducing/Adventures In Rhythm ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some fantastic records by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and other hip vocalists of the time. These two sides have plenty of Rugolo's modern touches – but they also manage to swing nicely, spending a bit of time with strange assemblages of instruments and odd phrasings, but also getting back to the groove in time to keep things lively. Titles include "Sambamba", "Here's Pete", "Mixin The Blues", "Rugolo Meets Shearing", "Early Stan", "Manana", "Theme From The Lombardo Ending", "Good Evening Friends Boogie", "Conversation", and "Bazaar".
