A pretty strange album of "hip" fairytales and fables, recorded by jazz DJ/hipster Al Jazzbo Collins, alongside a group featuring Steve Allen, Hal Blaine, and Terry Gibbs. The approach is a bit square, but the album's also got the appeal of those late 50s beatnik sessions – with recitation up front, and jazz in the background. Titles include "Sonny Cool", "The Three Little Pigs", "The Power Of The Flower", and "The Swearing In Of The Bandidos". (Original orange and black label mono pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Steeplechase (Denmark), 1978. Near Mint-
Nice album recorded during a time when Shirley Horn's talents were lesser-known to the world than in her current revival. The set's got Shirley playing piano and singing in a very sweet trio with Buster Williams and Billy Hart. The material's mostly standards, but as usual, Shirley manages to get ...

Sing The Best Of Irving Berlin
EmArcy, 1957. Very Good-
A great album that pairs these two great singers together for some of Berlin's popular tunes. They're accompanied by a full orchestra and the singers compliment each other nicely especially where Vaughan can match Eckstine's low tones. The tracks include "Isn't This A Lovely Day", "Al ...

Fontana/Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A weird one – but one of the real standouts in Cleo Laine's 60s catalog! As the title might imply, Cleo sings jazz versions of Shakespeare poems and bits from plays – with musical backing by husband Johnny Dankworth, who gives the set a cool enough groove to really make it work, and ...

A classic set from singer Lee Wiley – and proof that she was one of the best small group jazz vocalists of her time!

Watch Me
RCA, 1968. Sealed
Attention Stereo Buffs! Or so says the label on this one, a groovy bit of "symphonopop" arranged and performed by Jonna Gault. The liner notes ask the question "was stereo created for Jonna Gault and her symphonopop scene or vice versa?". Check out her versions of "Good ... LP, Vinyl record album

In The Morning
RCA, Late 60s. Sealed
Swingin' vocal group pop (2 males and a female), recorded in RCA's Nashville studios, with a nice warm sound. The feel's a bit like We Five, but with a little bit less of the strident vocal sound that they have. Tracks include "Mr. Thompson", "Having Fun Again", "Sleepy ... LP, Vinyl record album
