VariousVerve – The Sound Of America – Singles Collection (5 CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 5CD ... $38.99
A very fresh look at the music of Verve Records – that legendary jazz imprint that's made wonderful sounds from the late 40s onwards! Verve is well-known as a label for classic jazz albums – work by Stan Getz, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, and many others – but during the company's initial wave of releases, they also issued a fair number of singles, too – offering different mixes and versions of tracks than appeared on the full length records! This sweet 5CD set is a marvelous overview of that era – and is especially strong on music from Verve's big years of the 50s and 60s – a time when the label was really helping shape American musical tastes, and was getting a lot of these singles out there on the charts, on the radios, and in the jukeboxes too. The set features 100 rare singles, served up on five differently-themed CDs – Just Friends (1947 to 1956), Stairway To The Stars (1956/1957), Bossa Nova (1958 to 1963), Goldfinger (1963 to 1965), and Bumpin On Sunset (1965 to 2001). The Stairway To The Stars CD features work from Verve's big wave of vocal recordings in the mid 50s – songs by Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and others – and Goldfinger has some ultra-cool bits from Verve's mod years – including work by Jimmy Smith, Donald Byrd, Lalo Schifrin, Stan Getz, and Bill Evans. The Bossa Nova material is great, and more than stands for itself – and the Bumpin On Sunset CD features some overlooked gems from the late 60s and early 70s – with really only one later track. 100 songs in all, 5CDs, and a nice booklet with notes and players for each single.

✨✧ VariousLet It Be – Black America Sings Lennon, McCartney, & Harrison ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Think The Beatles only had an impact on rock and pop fans in the America of the 60s? Think again – because their music had an undeniable impact on soul as well – as you'll here from this wonderful range of remakes of classic cuts from the Fab Four! The work here is a real surprise if you don't know the legacy – but it also really makes sense once you're reminded of the mind-expanding, ear-opening territory the group hit in the latter half of the 60s – and working with themes of social change, alienation, and personal longing – of the sort that turn out to be perfect for new interpretations in soul! Most of these cuts are way more than standard cover versions, too – as the arrangements are really inventive, and take off in bold new directions that make the songs very much new properties overall. Most of the work here is from the late 60s and early 70s – and as always with Ace Records, the notes and presentation really put the music in context! Titles include "The Fool On The Hill" by The Four Tops, "Dear Prudence" by The Five Stairsteps, "For No One" by Maceo & The King's Men, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Tomorrow Never Knows" by Junior Parker, "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Do You Want To Know A Secret" by Mary Wells, "Lovely Rita" by Fats Domino, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Undisputed Truth, "Savoy Truffle" by Ella Fitzgerald, and "Let It Be" by Bill Withers.

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Jazz (3CD set – with bonus track)) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of rare jazz tracks, mostly from the 50s and 60s – and almost all from the super-huge catalogs of Columbia and RCA Records! The music here is a mix of vocal and instrumental tracks, and the collection does a nice job of mixing in more obscure numbers with classics – which really keeps things interesting as the set moves on. There's a nice sense of flow as the music moves on, showing the development of styles – and the package features 31 tracks that include "Once Upon A Summertime" by Miles Davis, "Body Talk (alt take)" by George Benson, "Little Susie" by Ray Bryant, "Self Portrait In Three Colors" by Charles Mingus, "Capricious" by Gerry Mulligan, "Indian Summer (live)" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Body & Soul" by Coleman Hawkins, "Bill Bailey (alt version)" by Aretha Franklin, "Night & Day (live)" by Helen Merrill, "Jive Hoot" by Bob Brookmeyer, "I Know You Oh So Well" by Andre Previn, "I Got Rhythm (take 1)" by Martial Solal, "Laura" by Charlie Parker, "Don't Stop The Carnival" by Sonny Rollins, "Three To Get Ready" by Dave Brubeck, and 'I'm Through With Love" by Chet Baker.
