Henri SalvadorLive In Paris – January to June 1958 – Mes Inedits ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the great French singer Henri Salvador – and some of his jazziest, too! Much of the work is in a vocalese style, popularized by American singers like Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson – in which Salvador provides his own lyrics to familiar ...

✨✧ Evie SandsAny Way That You Want Me (with bonus track) ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
Sweet folksy pop from the glory days of A&M! Evie Sands has a voice that's emotive in a folk rock way, but which is here produced with smoother west coast arrangements that are more in an LA mode – which makes for a very cool mix of modes! The overall sound of the album is very hip ... read more CD

Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A 70s soul classic – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit! The album's best known for its anthemic classic "Johannesburg" – one of the first popular tunes to really push the cause of a free South Africa – but the whole album's a winner, filled ...

Our favorite-ever album from Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that we'd easily rank as one of our favorite soul records of the 70s!

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A set that wasn't initially conceived as a full album by Gil Scott-Heron – but one that's come to be an essential part of his catalog, thanks to the always-relevant title theme!

A great record from the mid 70s – one that has Marlena Shaw further developing her style as a sophisticated soul diva with a sharp modern edge!

Nina SimoneAt The Village Gate ... CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an ... read more CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
Only Nina could make us love a "strings" setting so much – moving past the sleepiness that usually graces such vocal albums, and using the backings to give her work an added level of majesty and power that we really really love! The feel is a bit like some of Nina's later Philips ... read more CD

Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever cut by jazz singer Betty St Clair – a vocalist who got her start working in the Dizzy Gillespie band at the end of the 40s – but who's clearly a different sort of artist off here on her own! Betty's not really bop or big band-oriented – and instead, she' ... read more CD
