Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1962. Used
Early In The Morning, a gem – right up there with her best work ever! An excellent early album by one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time! The session's a very hip affair – recorded with the Ramsey Lewis Trio backing her up on one side, and a group led by Frank Foster on ... CD

Somewhere Called Home
ECM, 1987. Used Gatefold
Mature work from Norma Winstone – a tremendous evolution in style from her earlier recordings in the UK jazz/rock scene – much more subtle, and delivered with a compelling degree of sensitivity! Winstone is on vocals throughout, and the only instrumental backing is from the piano of ... CD

Blue Note, 2001. Used
Think what you may about this groove-patched hipster – we still think he's one of the best jazz vocalists of our time! Kurt Elling's carrying a torch that few other singers could handle – a direct line back to the genius male jazz vocal work of singers like Mark Murphy and Jon ... CD

Romantica
Motema, 2014. Used
A very groovy vocal set from singer Catherina Zapponi – an artist who sings in French and Italian throughout, with small combo backing that's almost in a Paris 30s mode! The group features great guitar from Bucky Pizzarelli, Frank Vignola, and Yotam Silberstein – who often evoke a ... CD

Soul To Soul
Afrasia, 2014. New Copy
We've loved Carmen Lundy since the very first time we heard her voice – and that love has only continued to grow over the decades, as she's given us a tremendous run of great records and wonderful music! This time around, Lundy's still strongly in the jazz side of the spectrum, but also ... CD

Strata East/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
One of the most unusual albums on the legendary Strata East label – an unusual mix of jazz and soul vocal material, put together by singer Muriel Winston with arrangements from the great Bill Lee! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to the record – one that's upfront and personal on the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1984. Near Mint-
An unusual set of Beatles covers – done by Polish jazz singer Ewa Bem, in a variety of styles that really vary from the originals! The approach here isn't just jazzy, but changes a fair bit from tune to tune – in a way that clearly plays with the originals, and which brings in a number ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blossom Enterprises, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Wonderful later work by Blossom Dearie – a 2LP set that's filled with wonderful compositions that rank with some of her best tunes! The style of the album is subtle – mostly just spare piano backing behind Blossom's vocals – but the tunes are opened up with that magical vocal ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mercury, 1956. Very Good
A date that has White singing with some really moody backings from Hal Mooney – a mix of jazz instrumentation and fuller strings – all served up with a real sensitivity for some of the darker moments in the tunes. Even when things are upbeat, there's a nice undercurrent of sadness ... LP, Vinyl record album

No description available. LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Focus, 1980. Near Mint-
A lovely little tribute to one of our favorite songwriters of all time – the lyrical genius Tommy Wolf, whose compositions were first championed back in the 50s and 60s by Bob Dorough, Jackie & Roy, and Blossom Dearie! Wolf's got a wonderful way with a twist of a phrase – playful, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Look Of Love
Philips, 1967. Very Good+
Prime late 60s work from Dusty Springfield – an excellent American album that compiles some of her best singles from the UK! The sound is incredible – a blend of easy, soul, and tight British pop orchestrations – with arrangements handled by Pat Williams, Ivor Raymonde, Reg Guest ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Concord, 1988. Near Mint-
A mighty nice setting for Carmen McRae, and a bit different than usual too – especially given that the backing group is a pretty soulful tenor/organ combo! Jack McDuff handles the Hammond, and Red Holloway plays both tenor and alto, with some nice comping from Phil Upchurch on guitar in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fitzgerald & Pass – Again
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint-
Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass return to the studio just a few years after their initial meeting – once again to work in a stripped-down duet format that's completely sublime! The spare setting is one that Ella never got in the older days – and there's an intimacy here that almost makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Band Swings Lorez Sings
King, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Early greatness from Lorez Alexandria – and proof that she was a singer who could handle a tune like nobody else! At one level, the set appears to be a simple batch of standards, given a slight jazz twist – but as usual for the great one, Lorez manages to inflect each and every note ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Solitude
Verve, 1952. Near Mint-
Classic Billie Holiday for Verve – sad, blue-tinged, and recorded with great small combo backing – in a mode that really updates the sound of her initial recordings while still keeping the best elements intact! Players include Oscar Peterson, Alvin Stoller, Barney Kessell, and Ray ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nights In Brazil
Inner City, 1981. Very Good
A sweet set of vocal tracks from Judy Roberts – a mix of original tunes and a few covers, all done with a warm fusiony style, and plenty of Brazilian touches! Judy's at the height of her powers here – partly jazzy, partly in a songstress mode that's inspired by the advances that female ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Get Angry
Warner, 1962. Sealed
Dreamy girl pop from the young Joanie Sommers – a set that's got the lady singing in a style that's a bit more chartbound than some of her later recordings, with lots of cool and groovy backings that give the album a wonderful sense of pep – and a slight undercurrent of sex as well! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sunshine Of Your Love
MPS/Prestige, 1969. Very Good
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1953. Very Good-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lambert, Hendricks & Ross Sing Ellington
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good
Although Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross started out their career singing vocalese versions of Basie tunes, they do a pretty darn great job here with Ellington – in fact, maybe even better, given the sophistication of the tracks. And while the album lacks some of the whimsy of the wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prima Generation '72
Brunswick, 1972. Very Good+
Wild later work from Louis Prima – with a bit of electric bass in the lineup, and still-smoking tenor from Sam Butera! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hottest New Group In Jazz
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an ...

Capitol, 1950s/Early 60s. Used 3CDs
A great batch of wonderful music – a well condensed 3 CD box set that features some of Sinatra's best recorded during his Capitol tenure! As is well known, Sinatra's Capitol years were his finest – a time when he moved past a simple pop singer into a complicated vocalist with a sense ... CD

Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used
Could anyone ever utter a sexier line than "Don't go to strangers, come to me?" We think not, and it's material like that that makes the album a real killer from Etta Jones – one of her best from the 60s, cut when she was really developing her skills as a vocalist, but still had ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mercury/Verve, Late 40s/Late 50s. Used
Nice early stuff from Dinah! This album brings together a tasty batch of her earlier R&B sides for Mercury – older singles that have a much rawer R&B sound than any of her later sophisticated stuff. Dinah was a great R&B singer in her own right – and the material on this ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Decca/Verve, Early 50s. Used
Tremendous work from a young Jimmy Scott – a great collection that brings together rare singles for Decca, Coral, and Brunswick – plus a few tracks that were never issued at the time! Although Jimmy's work has become famous in recent years – thanks to much-needed support towards ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol, 1958. Used
The title certainly gets it right – as Dakota Staton is definitely dynamic on this one, but not in a way that's hokey or forced at all! Instead, the record nicely lifts Staton from some of the more laidback and bluesy modes of her other 50s records – into a fuller range of styles that ... CD

High Note, 2014. Used
Dena DeRose serves up a tribute to the great Shirley Horn – and works here with the kind of hip jazzy combo that Horn definitely would have loved! Like Horn, DeRose both sings and plays piano – plus a bit of Hammond on a few tracks too – and in addition to core trio ... CD
