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

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!

Jamison RossAll For One ... CD
Concord, 2018. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Jamison Ross is a drummer at heart, but he's also turning into a hell of a singer who seems ready to help the music of New Orleans find a great new space of its own – as he works here in a sweet small combo set that mixes his voice with grooves that draw together strong currents of classic ... read more CD

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!

Muse, 1977. New Copy ... $4.99
Jonathan Schwartz is the son of composer Arthur Schwartz – and on this sparkling late 70s set, he does a surprisingly great job running through tunes penned by his old man!

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!

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

Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99

Ben SidranFree In America ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A bit smoother than Ben's earlier albums – but a great little set all the way through – and about as classic as you can get for Sidran in the 70s! The album's got a bit more soul in the mix, but still has some jazzy elements in the backings – and where things were sometimes ... read more CD

Nina SimoneNina Simone Sings Ellington ... 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
