Storyville/ORG, 1951/1953. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Around November 28, 2014
Rare live material from Billie Holiday – recorded at the Storyville club in Boston, and featuring some especially hip small combo backing! A good portion of the work appears to have been broadcast on radio – which means that the sound quality is professional, and done for a bigger ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 8LP, 4CD, DVD & Book
LP ... Around November 28, 2014
Incredible work from the legendary Lee Hazlewood – music and images that blow away his previous generation of creation for MGM, Mercury, and Warner Brothers – served up here in a package that really captures all the genius of Hazlewood during these amazing years! The package features ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Fame & Price/Price & Fame/Together
Made In Germany (Germany), New Copy
CD ... Early December, 2014
A great reunion of two grown-up figures from the bluesier side of the British scene of the 60s – vocalist Georgie Fame and ex-Animal Alan Price, both of whom really sound great together! After leaving The Animals, Price worked strongly in the UK as a solo act – often hitting grooves ... CD (Vocalists)

Capitol (Japan), 1960. New Copy
CD ... Around December 3, 2014
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller ... CD (Vocalists)

Pop Artistry
Mercury (Japan), 1965. New Copy
CD ... Around December 3, 2014
A sweet little album that serves up exactly what it promises in the title – a set of 60s pop tunes, all reworked by the jazz vocal artistry of Sarah Vaughan! The set's one of the most upbeat and bouncy that Vaguhan cut during the decade – and although you might know some of the tunes ... CD (Vocalists)

Reprise/Capitol, 1961. New Copy
CD ... Around December 9, 2014
An unusual session from Frank – recorded in London with backings from Robert Farnon! CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Capitol/Gold Legion, 1963. New Copy
CD ... Mid-December, 2014
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 ... CD (Vocalists)

Time In My Life
Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 1971. New Copy
CD ... Around November 24, 2014 (delayed)
Sarah Vaughn's looking pretty groovy on the cover of this album, and she's sounding pretty groovy too – thanks to some sweet 70s backings from Ernie Wilkins! The style isn't exactly funky, but it's got some fully soulful sounds, and some great electric moments too – modes that almost ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969. New Copy
LP ... Around October 31, 2014 (delayed)
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy
CD ... Around October 1, 2014
An important early live show for Nina – a move to the classy Town Hall crowd, filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect audience to get the unique bag she was working on at the time – heard in very appreciative tones throughout the set! The performance is a great one ... CD (Vocalists)

Two's Company (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy
CD ... Around October 1, 2014
Despite any prejudice you might have against Maynard Ferguson, he actually does a damn good job backing up Chris Connor's lovely voice on this record – probably because his band is super-hip, and includes players like Jaki Byard, Joe Farrell, and Rufus Jones. Connor is in fine icy form, as ... CD (Vocalists)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy
CD ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
A great little set from Sarah – not to be confused with her similarly titled album for Columbia – instead a smooth batch of mature, sophisticated tracks that have Sarah hitting that older boozier style of her Roulette era. Titles include "Vanity", "My Favorite ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy
CD ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
Amazing is right – as the album features Nina caught at a great early point in her career, delivering a mix of ballads and folkish tunes – all with the kind of emotion that has kept us listening to her over the years. The approach is simple, but legendary, and filled with righteous ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
FM/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy
CD ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sing Along With Basie (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy
CD ... Around September 17, 2014 (delayed)
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Membran (Germany), New Copy
LP ... Mid-September, 2014 (delayed)
A great companion to all the full length albums from the mighty Gregory Porter – as this special set brings together his side projects, appearances with other artists, and remixes as well! We love Porter's own records – and honestly feel that he's one of the freshest jazz vocal talents ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Five, Four, Three
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy
CD ... Around September 1, 2014 (delayed)
One of the hippest albums ever from this fab Polish vocal group – and all of their albums are pretty darn hip! This set has the Novi Singers working in a freer, more open-ended mode than on some of their earlier records – hitting some territory that verges on the Karin Krog mode of the ... CD (Vocalists)

Afrasia/Pure Pleasure (UK), 2012. New Copy
LP ... Spring 2014
A wonderful record from Carmen Lundy – filled with original compositions, and recorded with a really solid jazz-based backing! The set's a great reminder of why Lundy is one of our favorite jazz singers ever – one of the few who continue to hold true to their original promise over the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CBS/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Spring 2014 (delayed)
A really great little album from Georgie Fame – one that has moving past the swinging Mose Allison-inspired jazz vocal mode of earlier records, into a groovier style that picks up a range of different sounds! Georgie kicks off the album with his version of the ever-popular late 60s "Ball ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Welcome Matt Dennis
Jubilee/EMI (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy
CD ... Around June 25, 2013 (delayed)
A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cadet/4 Men With Beards (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Around January 20, 2015
A really unique album from the great Etta Jones – a session recorded down in Muscle Shoals, and not in Chicago – a setting that gives James an extra sort of deep soul power! The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Island/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Around November 3, 2014 (delayed)
One of Nico's darkest albums – and the kind of record we always suggest to those who doubt her genius! The incredibly spare set has Nico playing harmonium, which makes for a spooky off-kilter sound that really gives the record a somber approach – especially as the instrument sounds a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
