Philips (Germany), Early 60s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $4.99
A fantastic bit of vocal jazz, sung by the legendary Swingle Singers in a style that shaped easy listening and soundtrack music for years to come! The French group had roots in vocalese jazz traditions – from groups like Lambert Hendricks & Ross or Les Double Six – but for this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Swingle Singers with the Modern Jazz QuartetEncounter – The Swingle Singers With The Modern Jazz Quartet (aka Place Vendome) ... LP
Philips, 1966. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An excellent set that has the vocal talents of the Swingle Singers backed by the sweet and mellow instrumentation of the Modern Jazz Quartet! Given that John Lewis & Co were essentially local residents in Paris for so many years, it's amazing it took them until 1966 to hook up with Ward ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Grady TateShe Is My Lady ... LP
Janus, 1972. Near Mint- ... $0.99
The jazzy vocals of Grady Tate get the Philly Soul treatment – as most of this album was recorded at Sigma Sound, with arrangements by Bobby Martin, and work by the usual MFSB players. Oddly, Grady's gone for kind of a rootsy style of singing on this one – harder than on earlier albums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Norene TateTenderly (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Elektra/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very early session on Elektra – cut during a year when the label recorded a surprising amount of jazz! Norene Tate's a singer we only know from this album – a very moody vocalist with this mixture of blue notes and more trilling high spots – a mode that makes her surprisingly ... read more CD

✨✧ Leon ThomasLeon Thomas In Berlin ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Great stuff from Leon Thomas' classic period – and a 1970 recording of a concert in Germany that features work by Oliver Nelson on alto sax. The rest of the group's a quintet, with piano, bass, conga, and drums – but the real star of the set is Leon Thomas, who again displays amazing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Leon ThomasSpirits Known & Unknown (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful work from Leon Thomas – easily one of his greatest albums ever, and a set that was recorded at the same time he was working with Pharoah Sanders! Thomas really rose to fame on Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – and this set really takes off from that ... read more CD

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mel TormeDuke Ellington & Count Basie Songbooks (aka I Dig The Duke – I Dig The Count) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An overlooked gem from Mel Torme's years at Verve – an album dedicated to the music of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, set to some very upbeat, jazzy backings from Johnny Mandel! The album's quite swinging at points – and given the choice of material, Mel really breaks from the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible album from Mel Torme – easily his best set ever, and a record that helped raise the bar for all other singers back in the 50s!

Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A wonderful little album by Mel Torme – easily one of his best albums of the 50s, despite the tighter focus implied in the title! Although the set's a tribute to Fred Astaire. the album's got a very similar feel to Mel's classic album with Marty Paich's Dek-Tette for Bethlehem – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye ... read more CD

Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of the straighter sessions ever recorded by vocalist Bobby Troup – an intimate quartet side, with backing by Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Enevoldsen on bass, and Don Heath on drums.

Two 50s gems from the great Bobby Troup – back to back on a single CD! Do Re Mi is a wonderfully playful record – Bobby wrote every track on the album, and the set's got lots of his cool little hipster ditties, like "Do Re Mi", "One October Morning", "Daddy" ... read more CD

Bobby TroupSongs Of Bobby Troup (10 inch LP) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good ... $24.99
A sublime early album from singer Bobby Troup – one that has a slightly different approach than you might guess from the title! Troup pays tribute to another fairly hip LA songwriter – the great Johnny Mercer, the man who helped to build Capitol Records in the late 40s! Mercer's tunes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover is nice, but has a small bit of clear tape on one top seam.)
