✨✧ Gregory PorterNat King Cole & Me ... CD
Blue Note, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The great Gregory Porter in a very different setting than usual – working here with larger backings from an entire orchestra, as part of the album's tribute to Nat King Cole during his glory days at Capitol Records! The style here isn't the King Cole Trio vibe of the mid 40s, but instead ... read more CD

✨✧ Ryan PorterSpangle Lang Lane ... CD
World Galaxy/Alpha Pup, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
There's a trippy-looking Muppet on the cover, and that gives you part of a feeling of the album – but just a sliver, because the overall sound here is a lot more complex! The album's a masterpiece from west coast arranger Ryan Porter – a mix of deeper jazz with bits of soul and hip hop ... (Neo Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Chico RandallRelax'n With Chico Randall ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Chico's our kinda singer – a small combo jazz pianist who also vocalizes while playing – in a style that reminds us a bit of Matt Dennis at the time! Chico's got a warm, honest voice – no Sinatra on the pipes, but an easygoing style that we really love – especially as it ... read more CD

Della ReeseAnd That Reminds Me ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
An album of sophisticated ballads from the young Della Reese – of the sort that show why the singer was such a standout right from the start! Della's got phrasing here that's sophisticated, but never in a way that trips up the sense of feeling she brings to the tunes – and, without the ... read more CD

Diane RenayNavy Blue (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
Diane Renay's clearly got a thing for sailors going on here – but maybe that's no surprise, given that she's handled on the album by the great Bob Crewe – whose perfect presentation of the music is right up there with his best pop of the 60s! Charlie Calello handled almost all of the ... (Rock, Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Ann RichardsAnn, Man! ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by 50s vocalist Ann Richards – best known for her work with Stan Kenton in the post-June Christy days, stepping out very nicely here in a small group session! Ann's definitely got a touch of the June in her approach – but she's also a bit warmer, and ... read more CD

Jimmy RushingFive Feet Of Soul ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Jimmy Rushing's last truly great albums – a jazz-tinged session of bluesy material, one that gets at his best work of the 50s! The arrangements are by Al Cohn, and have a fluid swing that pushes Jimmy past cliche – working with players that include Zoot Sims, Budd Johnson, ... read more CD

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 ...

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 13.99
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly ... (Now Sound, Vocalists) read more CD

Felicia SandersI Wish You Love ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful work from Felicia Sanders – a singer with a full, rich voice that has a magical kind of flow in just the right setting – which is definitely the case on this album! Sanders has a bit of the trill of an earlier generation of jazz vocalists, but also has some of the leaner, ... read more CD

Felicia SandersSongs Of Kurt Weill Sung By Felicia Sanders ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Overlooked magic from singer Felicia Sanders – just the sort of vocalist who would have been right at home in the New York small club scene of the 50s – particularly the kind of hip venues north of 42nd Street! The material here definitely echoes that quality – tunes penned by ... read more CD

✨✧ 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

Jimmy ScottI Go Back Home ... CD
Eden River, 2016. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
The last album ever recorded by the legendary Jimmy Scott – the jazz singer who first recorded in the 50s, then spent decades in obscurity – only to be revived to great fame in the last 20 years of his life! This album's a wonderful tribute to Jimmy – as it features the singer's ... read more CD

Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A great one from Gil Scott-Heron – and another wonderful collaboration with Brian Jackson – who handled all the arrangements on this set, and gave the record that sweet jazzy sound that makes Gil's work from this time some of his best ever!

Gil Scott-HeronFrom South Africa To South Carolina ... 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 ...

Gil Scott-HeronReal Eyes ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Gil Scott-Heron's best albums from later years! The record's got some wonderful mellow cuts – the kind that send chills up our spine, and which remind us of Gil's stripped-down jazzy work on the album Winter In America. And in fact, Gil does an excellent remake of the classic track ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

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!
