Swingle SingersJS Bach ... LP
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

Sylvia SymsSylvia Is – Sylvia Syms With Kenny Burrell ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Great 60s work from Sylvia Syms – and a set that features some excellent guitar work from Kenny Burrell! The set's got a hip small combo feel – like other great Prestige sides from Syms – and it's much groovier and more swinging that some of her other show-ish sort of records ... read more CD

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
(Cover has a cut corner and a few creases.)

✨✧ Leon ThomasGold Sunrise On Magic Mountain ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Mega, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A very nice live set by Leon – recorded with a great electric group that has Neal Creque on piano, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Oliver Nelson on alto, and added percussion by Sonny Morgan. The vibe is nice and free, and the tracks have a very spiritual sound, in the manner of the work that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole and some staining/peeling from moisture along the top 3 inches of the spine.)

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

Mel TormeMel Torme Loves Fred Astaire (aka Sings Fred Astaire) ... LP
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

✨✧ Mel TormeOle Torme ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ ... $22.99
A rare gem from Mel Torme – one of his greatest albums of the 50s! The album's got a very unusual approach – for Mel, that is – in that it sets his vocals up in Latinized arrangements, handled with a brassy finish by the great Billy May. The set's got a heck of a lot more punch ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1960. Used ... $4.99
Very groovy set of vocal tracks recorded by Mel during his years with Verve, and featuring some haunting arrangements by Russ Garcia. The title track – "Swingin' On The Moon" – is a goofy uptempo number of the sort that sometimes doesn't work, but which sounds very nice here, ... read more CD

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
