Kay LyraJust A Silly Game ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Lovely vocals from Kay Lyra – the daughter of bossa legend Carlos Lyra, and a singer who's equally at home singing in English and Portuguese!

One of the rare few albums from vocalist Mary Ann McCall – a hell of a great singer, and one with a really moody, dark style! Mary Ann's got all the sad tones and blue hues we love in June Christy's best work – and she arguably works with even hipper backings, too – some ... read more CD

A rare and exceptional vocal jazz LP – cut by the obscure Marilyn Moore, then the wife of Al Cohn – who's pictured in profile on the cover of the record! Marilyn's got a style that's somewhat raspy – clearly inspired by Billie Holiday at times, and not what you'd expect in ... read more CD

Anita O'DayEvening With Anita O'Day ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
The title's a bit misleading – as "evening with" makes you think the record's going to be a concert. But instead, it's just some great studio work from Anita O'Day – recorded during her initial years for Verve Records! The album was recorded in the company of 3 small groups ... read more CD
