Some of the earliest Billie Holiday work for Verve Records – material recorded in a mid 40s Jazz At The Philharmonic session, already showing the great setting the label was able to allow! Billie's voice is wonderful – really coming into its own mature modes – and backing is by a small combo that features the excellent Willie Smith on alto, plus Milt Raskin on piano, and Red Callender on bass. Milt plays solo behind Billie on a classic reading of "Strange Fruit" – and other tracks include "Billie's Blues", "All Of Me", "Body & Soul", and "The Man I Love".

Atlantic (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A great return to form for vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer who'd recorded earlier in the bop years, but who makes a rare 60s appearance here on a soulful set for Atlantic Records! Coleman's got a rich voice that's somewhere between Johnny Hartman and Billy Eckstine – with a great ... CD

Sony (Japan), 1967. New Copy

Songs Of Bobby Troup
Bethlehem, 1955. New Copy
A sublime early album from singer Bobby Troup – one that has a slightly different approach than you might guess from the title! Troup pays tribute to another fairly hip LA songwriter – the great Johnny Mercer, the man who helped to build Capitol Records in the late 40s! Mercer's tunes ... CD
Rev-Ola/White Whale (UK), 1971. New Copy
Very sweet, and very groovy work from Liz Damon's Orient Express – a fab Hawaiian combo with a really great sound! The group's music is sort of a mix of lounge jazz, bossa grooving, and the kind of sweet late 60s easy touches that were showing up in Brit sound library music. Liz handles ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy
Wonderful large group material from Polish jazz genius Jerzy Milian – an artist we usually know for his work on vibes, but who emerges here to be a hell of a composer and arranger as well! Most of the tracks here feature some work on vibes – played both by Jerzy and Clark Boland Big ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1965. New Copy
A great combination of Eastern European jazz talents of the 60s – the vibes of Jerzy Milian and the bigger band of Gustav Brom – both coming together here in a very unique recording! Milian's vibes are not only some of the best of his scene at the time – but some of the best of ... CD
