Leila MariaLeila Maria Canta Billie Holiday In Rio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the usual Billie Holiday tribute set – given the fresh approach that Leila Maria brings to her vocals, and the way that the album's mix of arrangers really change things up!

✨✧ Mary Ann McCallDetour To The Moon ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Harbinger, 2008. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99

Anita O'DayEvening With Anita O'Day ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $19.99
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

Oscar PetersonRomance – The Vocal Stylings Of Oscar Peterson ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1952/1953. New Copy ... $19.99
An overlooked side of the Oscar Peterson genius of the 50s – an album of laidback vocal tracks that are a great change from his better-known instrumental work!

Sue RaneyDreamsville – The Music Of Henry Mancini ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $21.99
Henry Mancini's best remembered as one of the most important instrumental film composers of the 60s and 70s – but the man also gave us a fair bit of vocal gems, too – great cuts that were co-composed with lyricists who include Johnny Mercer, Leslie Bricusse, Jay Livinston, and the team ... read more CD

Sue RaneyIn Good Company ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $21.99
Sue Raney's a singer that most folks know from some famous Capitol Records albums at the end of the 50s – yet she's also a hell of a vocalist who really knows how to keep on keeping on – as she does strongly on this album from the start of the 90s! Sue's got a modern look on the cover, ... read more CD
