Sixties Mann

CD (Item 393585) El (UK), Late 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.80 38

Sublime vocal chorus work from 60s arranger Johnny Mann – leader of the Johnny Mann Singers, a group who took the hokier sounds of earlier eras and gave them a nice Sunshiney twist! Mann's format here is one used by The Ray Charles Singers and a variety of other successful male/female pop vocal ensembles of earlier years – but the overall feel of the set is much more mod and 60s swinging, not just in the choice of songs (which is great), but also in the nicely punctuated backings, which help take the once-sleepy style into a livelier mode that's got plenty of groovy appeal! CD features 23 tracks pulled from Johnny's late 60s Liberty recordings – including "Mrs Robinson", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Call Me", "Snow", "To Sir With Love", "Up Up & Away", "Cherish", "Windy", "What The World Needs Now", "Taste Of Honey", and "The Worst That Could Happen".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
Carmen McRae really opens up on this sweet 70s set for Blue Note – expanding past the traditional jazz of her roots, and even some of the groovier work of her Atlantic years – into a sweeping, contemporary sound that's all adult, all the way! The vibe is great – in the same ... CD

Shorty
CBS/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences! Georgie's still got his Mose Allison-inspired ... CD

Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the ... CD

Epic (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A really wonderful first album from Anthony Perkins – cut years before he shocked the screen in Psycho, at a time when he was arguably more committed to his role as a singer! Perkins is surprisingly great throughout – with a mellow, masculine approach that's a bit like Matt Dennis at ... CD

Sweet Youth
Blujazz, 2011. New Copy
CD...$9.99 15.99
A vocal jazz album, but one with a nice sort of difference – given that the vocals of Tish Oney are only backed by a bit of acoustic guitar! Yet despite the lack of familiar piano, bass, and drums, Tish has a hell of a swinging sound – one that often leads off a tune without the guitar ... CD

We Could Be Flying
Meantime (Norway), 1974. New Copy
Magnificent work from European jazz vocalist Karin Krog – a landmark album that shows why she sings like no other singer! On this 1974 session, Karin moves far beyond the standard jazz of her roots – into territory that's spacey, cosmic, and filled with the best influences bubbling ... CD

Some Other Spring – Blues & Ballads
Meantime (Norway), 1970. New Copy
The icy voice of Norwegian singer Karin Krog is a perfect match for Dexter's deep soulful saxophone, and the two of them perform wonderfully together in this rare set of tracks recorded in 1970 with Kenny Drew on piano and Niel Henning Orsted-Peterson on bass. Krog has always been tremendously ... CD

Cloud Line Blue
Meantime (Norway), 1978. New Copy
Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog! Although Krog began her career as a straight jazz vocalist, she cut a number of records in the 70's that had her pushing into a cool territory that was a lot more progressive, and which had some great Euro-fusion touches – like the sorts ...
