Frank Sinatra & JobimFrancis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Capitol, 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful little album that shows a whole new side of Sinatra!

Betty St ClaireWhat Is There To Say ... 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

Decca/Vocalion (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked gem from this groovy French vocal group – a set that was issued in the early 70s, after their initial rise to 60s fame for mixing classical themes and scatting jazz – but a record that's every bit as great as those classics! This time around, the group take on Vivaldi's ... read more CD
