One of those great obscure Anita O'Day sessions from the 70s – the sort that we've almost come to love even more than her classic albums on Verve! There's a relaxed, mature approach here that's really great – a toning down of the sometimes too-vibrant energy that Anita hit in her youth – and a way of schooling the tunes with lessons learned from life – so that her readings of the lyrics, and her inflections in a jazz-based way, really show the care that goes into the music. The group features guitar from Billy Webb and Al Bruno, and titles include "Old Folks", "I Cried For You", "Chicago", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "Ace In The Hole".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Burton
Sony (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A beautifully gentle album from vocalist Ann Burton – recorded with sublime accompaniment from the trio of pianist Louis Van Dyke, a fragile and spare talent on the keys – and a perfect match for Burton on the mood of the album! Ann's vocals really come across with the mature grace ... CD
Dianne Reeves
Blue Note (Japan), 1987. New Copy

Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1961. New Copy

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A record that's far more beautiful than you'd guess from the "carcass" in the title – a strong set of vocal work from singer Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the hippest Japanese singers of the 70s! Although Kasai's sometimes straight on the album, she also stretches out in freer ... CD
Clouds/JVC (Japan), 1980. New Copy
One of the greatest moments ever from Bobby Caldwell – a special little album that occupies it's own place between genres – a touch of soul, the warmth of jazz, and a delivery that really helped Caldwell reach out to some big new audiences at the time! There's a cool, compressed feel ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1996. New Copy
No tricks, no gimmicks – just a set that's deeply respectful of all the sharp edges of Jackie McLean's years of work on alto sax, but which also has him nicely returning to the mainstream spotlight as well! By that, we don't mean that there's anything soft or commercial about the record ... CD
