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 ReeseMelancholy Baby ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
Della Reese definitely takes the "melancholy" in the title seriously here – and turns the set into one of her most blue-tinged records from the early days! The backings are full, but never too lush – handled perfectly by Sid Bass, who shades in the corners with some sad ... 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

Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the great French singer Henri Salvador – and some of his jazziest, too!

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!

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!

Felicia SandersSongs Of Kurt Weill Sung By Felicia Sanders ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
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
