New Oscar Brown JrBrother Where Are You ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth! Brown's still a hell of a songwriter, and one with a very socially-conscious eye – sharper here than before, with lots of comments on the changes in society in the 70s, mixed with a few more heartfelt, personal moments too. There's still a bit of jazz in the mix – thanks to work from Seldon Powell on reeds, and Joe Sample on keyboards – and arrangements are by old friends Floyd Morris, the underground Chicago soul genius – and Sivuca, best known for his Brazilian music, but a great choice here to expand the groove. Brown wrote all the tunes on the record – and titles include "From My Window", "Like A Flower", "Brother Where Are YOu", ""The Lone Ranger", "If You Come Back", and "The Joneses".

Chris ConnorChris In Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Good+ ... $4.99
A nice little live set from Chris – recorded at the Village Vanguard with a group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Eddie De Haas on bass, Bill Rubenstein on piano, and Lex Humphries on drums. The setting of the album is similar to some of Chris' work at Bethlehem – very small combo and jazzy, save for the fact that there's a bit more "room" in the recording than on the very close-miked Bethlehem sessions. The approach is a great one to open up another new side of Connor's talents – and the album has a bit tighter feel than Chris' other live album from the same period. Titles include "Round Midnight", "All About Ronnie", "Fine & Dandy", "Misty", "Senor Blues", and "Angel Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has light wear and a stereo stamp on the front.)

Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A mature side by Bobby Darin - featuring him taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair bit more swinging and jazz-based than you'd hear if you were catching these songs in their original settings. Darin's finger-snapping style is a great one for these tunes – bringing out all their sharper edges in ways that other 60s performers don't always get. Titles include "Night Song", "Try To Remember", "Once Upon A Time", "The Other Half Of Me", "I Believe In You", "It's Today", and "Everybody Has The Right To Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker.)

Peggy LeeLet's Love ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Sealed ... $1.99
An incredibly lovely later album from Peggy Lee – her first album for Atlantic, and proof that she was still growing tremendously as an artist, well into the 70s! The record's title track was a tune written for Peggy by Paul McCartney, who also produced the number for the record – and it's got a wonderful "adult" feel – one that steps off even more from Peggy's last Capitol recordings. But in some way, the real star of the album is Dave Grusin – who co-produced the rest of the record along with Peggy, and who gives the session a warmly laidback jazz-based approach – one that's miles away from Peggy's 60s work, and handled in a maturely mellow groove that's totally great. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and Peggy's aging vocals sparkle beautifully amidst a host of modern tunes that include "He Is The One", "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", "Sweet Lov'liness", "Sweet Talk", "Always", and the funky classic "Easy Evil".

Carmen McRaePortrait Of Carmen ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+ ... $2.99
An excellent album from Carmen McRae – one of her hippest records ever, and a great set of vocal gems that often gets overlooked! Arrangements are by Benny Carter, Shorty Rogers, and Oliver Nelson – and the album's got a swinging groovy style that pushes Carmen past her straighter jazz vocal roots – into some hiply sophisticated territory that really shows her growing as a singer in the 60s. The album kicks off with an amazing reading of Tommy Wolf's "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco", done by Carmen in a way that makes you know she owns the song – and then it moves through a compelling blend of compositions that includes "My Very Own Person", "Ask Any Woman", "Boy, Do I Have A Surprise For You", and "Elusive Butterfly".

Frances WayneWarm Sound ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $28.99
A wonderful little record from Frances Wayne – thanks to some great arrangements from Neal Hefti! Hefti's approach here is just perfect – not as over the top as his work with Count Basie, but with the right blend of sophistication and soulfulness to make Wayne sound great – really coming across with a lot more depth than we remember from other albums. Frances' vocals are slightly breathy at times, but never too much so – and she's got a slightly snakey quality that slides out nicely amidst small combo instrumentation from Al Cohn on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Billy Mure on guitar, and Jerome Richardson on flute. Titles include "In Other Words", "Early Autumn", "Round Midnight", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Blue & Sentimental", "Soft Winds", and "Oh What A Night For Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mose AllisonYour Mind Is On Vacation ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ol' Mose manages to keep his cool, even in the 70s – laying down some great small combo work with Joe Farrell and Al Cohn each playing a bit of tenor! That Allison vocal approach is right on the money – and titles include "Your Molecular Structure", "If You Only Knew", "What Do You Do After You Ruin Your Life", "I Feel So Good", "Fires Of Spring", and "No Matter".

New Jimmy ScottSource ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A unique moment from the legendary Jimmy Scott – a one-off album cut for Atlantic Records – recorded after his initial 50s fame, and decades before he'd finally get his due, much later in his life! The album's got a style that's a bit more mature than Scott's initial sides – a bit more grown up in approach, even though Jimmy's still got that really unique light tone to his vocals – and arranged by Arif Mardin and William Fischer in a hip blend of jazz and strings – with a slow-moving vibe that's completely mesmerizing. The core instrumentation is by a group that includes Junior Mance on piano, Billy Butler on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "Our Day Will Come", "I Wish I Knew", "This Love Of Mine", and a very moody version of "Exodus".

Annie Ross/Christopher LogueLoguerhythms – Songs From The Establishment ... LP
Transatlantic (UK), Early 60s. Good+ ... $28.99
A solo set by singer Annie Ross, done after she left the company of Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert, and returned to her native UK – with words penned by offbeat poet Christopher Logue, and set to music by the combo of drummer Tony Kinsey! The tunes are playful, creative, and just the kind of unusual material that brings out the best in Annie Ross – that amazing spirit she first unlocked with a song like "Twisted", and which she continued with LHR – making the album one of her finest. Titles include "Bellini", "The Ass Song", "The General", "Things", "Go To The Wall", and "Western Ladies". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: Vinyl has a bump, which skips on one track on side one, and two on side two. Rest plays OK. Cover has a small rip on the top seam.)
