A rare vocal session from Jane Powell – a singer better known for her film performances, but who sounds pretty darn great here on an obscure 50s studio session for Verve! Jane's got a higher-voiced style than most of the other singers on Verve, but she's brought down to earth nicely by arranger Buddy Bregman – who manages to keep things jazzy and swinging, but also creates some of the loftier modes from her film work – some lush moments that really come through on the mellower tracks. Titles include "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Comes Love", "In Love In Vain", "Can't We Be Friends", "Imagination", and "Ev'ry Time".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Reprise (Japan), 1964. New Copy
A great later date from Dinah Shore – one that pays tribute to her initial rise to fame on the Lower Basin Street show – but which actually comes across much more in a groovy 60s style overall! Jack Elliott handles the arrangements, and he brings in a punched-up sort of rhythm that ... CD
Movin' On
Atlantic (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A sweet bit of funky jazz vocals from Oscar Brown Jr – recorded during his early 70s stay at Atlantic Records, in a style that's very different than his early work! The tracks are all still original numbers by Oscar – penned with that clever bad-rapping approach to the lyrics that ... CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of ... CD
Verve, 1965/1974/1977. New Copy CD & DVD
A lost chapter of genius from the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – music that goes beyond her Verve, Reprise, and Pablo albums of the 60s and 70s – and which is pulled from a host of rare performances recorded by the BBC! The package features both video and audio presentation of the music ... CD
Polydor/Verve (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy
One of the coolest vocal groups of the late 60s – Germany's Gunter Kallmann Choir, presented here in a batch of tracks that includes some of their hippest tracks from the Polydor years! The group's sound is quite similar to that of the Horst Jankowski singers – a large ensemble of ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Vocal magic from Ella Fitzgerald – a pair of 60s Verve albums, back to back on a single CD! On Ella Sings Broadway, Fitzgerald sings songs from the great white way – but in a style that makes the tunes completely her own! Marty Paich turns in some great jazzy arrangements for the set ... CD
