Marian Montgomery — Marian Montgomery Swings For Winners & Losers ... LP 0.99

We love Marian Montgomery – and she's a heck of a great singer with a really unusual sound! In an early 60s work of sultry vixens, Marian's got a harder-swinging groove that's almost in a Ray Charles mode – clearly inspired by 50s R&B, but done with enough of a jazz flourish to expand out the sound nicely. Plus, she's got a really rhythmic approach to her work, no matter what the tune – which makes for an uncanny ability to turn even a sleeper into a surprising swinger. Here, it also helps that Dick Hyman's handling the arrangements – playing organ and piano himself on the record, and working with a small combo that includes Kenny Burrell, Joe Newman, Milt Hinton, and Willie Rodriguez. The whole thing's plenty great – and titles include "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "My Buddy", "The Exciting Mister Fitch", "Deed I Do", and "All By Myself".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Gift Of Song

Late work by The Sandpipers – the smooth vocal trio who were one of A&M's greatest pop acts in the 60s! This obscure set is from 1971 – and has the boys singing to a bit more of an electric LA sound, produced to perfection by Bones Howe, and featuring work by LA studio gods Hal ... 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

I Remember You
Spotlite/Meantime (Norway), 1981. New Copy
Essential work from vocalist Karin Krog – one in a number of sessions cut with some of the best saxophonists of her time (Dexter Gordon, Archie Shepp, John Surman) – a record that features some incredible late tenor from Warne Marsh, set beautifully alongside one of the few vocalists ... 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 ... CD

Wonderful work from Marisa Monte – and a set that may well be the greatest record we've heard from her in years! There's a freshness here that grabs us right away – with the lure we felt when first hearing Monte's music many years ago, but cast here in a completely different style, too ... CD

Harmless (UK), 1985. New Copy
A lost 80s album from Barbara Pennington – a singer we normally associate more with the disco generation, but who's still very strong here on a Record Shack session with Ian Levine! The style is still clubby, but slows things down a bit more from the disco years – a snapping 80s vibe ... CD
