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 ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Soul Jazz ... CD
Jazzclub/Verve (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just a regular set of 60s soul jazz – as the package offers up a wide variety of styles, genres, and work from both European and American sources – all at a ridiculously low price! The set brings together 18 numbers from key 60s labels like Verve, MPS, and Impulse – all grooving together nicely in an upbeat mode that brings in plenty of Latin, Brazilian, and slightly funky touches too! All these tunes are plenty darn hip – longtime favorites at Dusty Groove that include "Jive Samba" by Peter Herbholzheimer, "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" by Marcos Valle, "Evil Ways" by Willie Bobo, "Terra Samba" by Fritz Pauer, "Um Grao De Areia" by Clarke Boland Big Band, "Cubano Chant" by Wolfgang Dauner Trio, "For Mods Only" by Chico Hamilton, "Love & Happiness" by Monty Alexander, "The Fakir" by Cal Tjader, "Big Schlepp" by Dave Pike Set, "Watermelon Man" by Jon Hendricks, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Ella Fitzgerald.

✨✧ VariousRight On! Vol 2 – More Breakbeats & Grooves From The Atlantic & Warner Vaults ... CD
Warner (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent 2nd volume to this killer set of tracks pulled from the Warner and Atlantic catalogs during the glory days of their soul and funk years! This volume's even more interesting than the first one – and features a huge bunch of cuts that have never been reissued, either on proper or improper reissues (if you know what we mean, wink wink!) As with the first volume, this one focuses on funky material that can or should be sampled – and there's plenty of nice breaks to go around for everyone! Tracks include "Wanaoh" by Black Heat, "Rien Ne Va Plus" by Funk Factory, "Right On" by Clarence Wheeler & the Enforcers, "Giggin Down 103rd" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band, "Sandy's Love" by Harold Alexander, "Funky" by Freddie King, "South Street Soul" by Freddie Hubbard, "It's Your Thing" by Shirley Scott, "Magnificent Sanctuary Band" by Donny Hathaway, "Teasin" by King Curtis, "Almendra" by Macondo, "Soul Flow" by Paul Kelly, "Gang Bang" by Oscar Brown Jr, and "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald.

✨✧ VariousGlass Onion – Songs Of The Beatles ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Beatles never sounded this groovy – as this compilation features fab cover versions of the group's greatest tunes, all performed by jazz, funk, and soul artists of the late 60s and early 70s! Most of the tracks on the set come from the Atlantic and Warner catalogs – and nearly all of them were recorded within a few years of the time the original versions came out – making them that more fresh as takes on tunes that were probably already getting overplayed on the radio. The approach to the music is really wonderful – stepping out much farther than you might expect with tracks like these, as you'll hear on gems that include "Hard Day's Night" by Eddie Cano & Nino Tempo, "Here Comes The Sun" by Charles Wright, "Let It Be" by Aretha Franklin, "Hey Jude" by Clarence Wheeler & The Enforcers, "Something" by Wade Marcus, "Glass Onion" by Arif Mardin, "Savoy Truffle" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Day Tripper" by Herbie Mann & Tamiko Jones, "Drive My Car" by Black Heat, "Come Together" by The Meters, "All You Need Is Love" by The Freedom Sounds, "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by Bill Cosby, "Get Back" by Shirley Scott, and "Good Day Sunshine" by Roy Redmond.
