Les McCannLes McCann Sings – jukebox ep ... 7-inch
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good (pic cover)... $9.99
In a mode that foreshadows his move to soul during the 70s, this one features Les singing to some hip arrangements by Gerald Wilson – in kind of a pop soul jazz style that was common for LA of the mid 60s. Most of the tracks are standards, done with a bit of a kick, and some of that down-home grooving that folks were used to from Les' piano albums. Les still plays piano on this one while he's singing – and titles include "Bye Bye Black Bird", "Deed I Do", "On The Street Where You Live", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "But Not For Me", and "Wonder Why". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has a center split on the top seam.)

✨✧ Marc 4Blues Work/Suoni Moderni ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
"Blues Work" here is hardly the sound of American blues – and instead, is more in the mode of tight funky jazz – but with this cool sharp piano riffing over the top, very much in the best Duke Of Burlington style! "Suoni Moderni" is another great one from this cool instrumental combo – very bassy at the beginning, with a drum break nestled in at the bottom – which gets louder and sharper as the tune rolls on, with some great space for Hammond and Fender Rhodes lines too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Hand numbered limited edition of 333 copies.)
