VariousJazz Club – Jazz Ladies ... CD
Jazzclub/Verve (Germany), 1950s/1960s. Used ... $4.99
The Jazz Ladies here are all pretty hip ones – vocalists from the 50s and 60s who recorded for a variety of labels that include Mercury, Decca, Verve, Philips, and Kapp – presented here in a great blend of familiar and obscure artists! The collection dips way deeper than the usual "old vocalist" sort of set we get over here in the US – and although you'll hear Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan in the package, you'll also get work by Sue Raney, Bev Kenney, Rita Reys, and other less-remembered singers. 18 tracks in all – including "They Can't Take That Away From Me" by Peggy Lee, "Undecided" by Beverly Kenney, "A Beautiful Friendship" by Sue Raney, "Give Me The Simple Life" by Carmen McRae, "Deed I Do" by Rosemary Clooney, "You Hit The Spot" by Ella Fitzgerald, "A Fine Romance" by Margaret Whiting, "Mack The Knife" by Shirley Horn, "My Funny Valentine" by Rita Reys, and "Rhode Island Is Famous For You" by Blossom Dearie.

VariousSpiritual Jazz 6 – Vocals – Modal Esoteric & Progressive Jazz Vocals From Around The World 1960 to 1986 ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
A great look at a very important side of spiritual jazz in the 60s and 70s – the evolution of jazz vocals, to a point when singers like Abbey Lincoln, Andy Bey, or Leon Thomas brought a whole new sound and soul to the spectrum of jazz! This wonderful package covers lots of key moments from that time – and also unearths some great rare tracks, too – really showing the way that singers of this period moved far far past the styles of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald in the generation before – often using their voices with the same unbridled power as the musicians in these groups, serving up some righteous lyrics and politics in the process! The collection might well be our favorite in this great series so far – and titles include "Imani" by EW Wainwright, "Tears For Johannesburg" by Max Roach, Colors" by Norman Riley, "African Violet" by Sadaka, "The Ladder" by The Singers & Musicians Of Washington High School, "Rain Forest" by Dr Haki R Mahubuti, "African Sunshine" by Eddie Gale, "Reunion (edit)" by Byron Morris & Unity, "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz Ntu Troop, "John Coltrane" by Clifford Jordan, and "Spirits Up Above" by Vibration Society.

✨✧ VariousWhat The World Needs Now Is Burt! – Songs Of Burt Bacharach & Hal David From The Warner & Atlantic Vaults ... CD
WEA (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We're firm believers that you can never get enough work by Burt Bacharach – especially when it's as brilliant as this! The collection is a wonderful overview of Bacharach tunes performed by different artists – mostly recorded in the late 60s for Warner Brothers and Atlantic Records, in a mix of modes that includes jazz, vocal, and soul interpretations of some of Burt's best tunes ever – all given a slightly different twist than their more famous originals! Bacharach himself was always open to new sounds and new styles, and we're sure that if he heard this set (he has, hasn't he?) he'd be plenty pleased with the track selection – because the scope stretches to many areas that the Great One touched from his private little corner in modern music, and beautifully illustrate how much greater the world has become, thanks to his musical gifts! Package features 18 tracks in all – including "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" by Young-Holt Unlimited, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Long After Tonight Is Over" by Paris Sisters, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Sergio Mendes, "Let The Music Play" by The Drifters, "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "Don't Say I Didn't Tell You So" by Herbie Man, "Make It Easy On Yourself" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "This Guy's In Love With You" by Roy Ayers, "Close To You" by Carmen McRae, and "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich.

✨✧ VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 5 – Sunshine Of Your Love ... LP
Motor/Universal (Germany), 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The 5th genius compilation from the folks at Germany's Mojo Club folks – and there's no end to the wonderful grooves! The crew are really opening up their bag here – and the set's one of their first to really move past jazz and soul into a much wider range of grooves – including a number of Brazilian and European gems that really make the set sparkle! Tracks include "Sunshine of Your Love" sung by Ella Fitzgerald, "Season of the Witch" by Julie Driscoll, "Young Generation" by Dakota Staton, "Hold Me I've Got to Leave You" by Jonny Teupen, "Move Your Hand" by La Clave, "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tema Rio 65" by Trio Rio 65, "Mano Caetano" by Maria Bethania, "Ponteio" by Edu Lobo, "California Soul" by The Gimmicks, "Revelation" by Charles Earland, "Troublemaker" by John Cameron, and "Cinnamon & Clove" by Lee Evans.
