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+ ... $2.99
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 ... $0.99
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".

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album in a legendary run of vocal jazz classics on Atlantic Records – and a set that really helped Chris Connor move to a new level of expression in her music! The sound here is much richer than Connor's previous recordings for Bethlehem – and the small combo jazz backings have been replaced by fuller orchestrations by Ralph Burns – done in a cool, edgey sort of way that really pushes Chris into newly sophisticated territory! The sound's on a par with the best June Christy/Pete Rugolo collaborations on Capitol – and the group's filled with some great jazz players, including Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "He Was Good to Me", "Where Are You", and "Get Out Of Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label pressing with deep groove, in a heavy cover! Cover has some wear and aging.)

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings The George Gershwin Almanac Of Song ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real standout in Chris Connor's legendary run for Atlantic Records – and a unique double-length set that was almost her answer to some of the 2LP Verve songbook sessions from Ella Fitzgerald! Like those, this album's based upon the work of a single composer – and features key Gershwin compositions from the 20s and 30s, redone here with a moody, mellow, jazz-based approach – one that unlocks even more darkness in these tunes than you might expect! Instrumentation is by a number of different small groups – assemblages of players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Sam Most on clarinet, Herbie Mann on flute, Milt Jackson on vibes, Al Cohn on tenor, and Ralph Sharon on piano – all working with arrangements by Sharon, Ray Ellis, and Stan Free. The album features a whopping 32 titles in all – with tracks that include "A Foggy Day", "Strike Up The Band", "Nice Work If You Can Get It", "Little Jazzbird", "My One & Only", "That Certain Feeling", "Fascinating Rhythm", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Liza", "Soon", and "I Can't Be Bothered Now". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Strike Up The Band" and "Summertime", done in different takes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Rare LP pressing – black label with deep groove – in nice shape. Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Chris ConnorFree Spirits ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff – and one of Chris Connor's greatest records for Atlantic! There's a depth to this set that passes some of her others from the time – partially because the album features a very hip set of tunes, written by Ornette Coleman, Norman Mapp, John Lewis, Peggy Lee, and others – and partially because the album has some sublime arrangements by Al Cohn that easily shift between darkness and swinging brilliance – all with that perfect sense of balance that Connor brought to her best sessions. Titles include "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "Jump For Joy", "Night Bird", "Opportunity Please Knock", "Milano", "Day Dream", "Free Spirits", and a great version of "Lonely Woman"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue label pressing – and cover is nice! Back has a few light notes and a small name.)

✨✧ Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, & The TrinityStreetnoise ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some great funky grooves by this legendary British ensemble – featuring excellent keyboard work by Brian Auger, recorded during the period when he was really beginning to stretch out a bit, and hit a much more open-ended kind of sound. Julie Driscoll is still on vocals, singing in her raw sound, but Brian's Trinity group gets a fair number of nice instrumental moments on the set – which are greatly appreciated! Titles include the classic and sample laden "Light My Fire", "Czechoslovakia", "Finally Found You Out", "In Search Of The Sun", "Ellis Island", "I've Got Life", and "Save The Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

LuluMelody Fair ... LP
Atco, 1970. Very Good ... $8.99
Lulu takes a trip down to Criteria Studios in Miami – working at Atlantic Record's new heart of southern soul for the 70s – but coming up with styles that are a fair bit like her previous outing at Muscle Shoals! As on that one, production is by Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, and Arif Mardin – and the overall sound's expanded a bit more here – to include rhythm by The Dixie Flyers, vocals from The Sweet Inspirations, and some added horns from The Memphis Horns – all of whom help continue the maturing trend of Lulu's Atlantic years – a new move into soulful styles that's totally great! Titles include "Good Day Sunshine", "Vine Street", "Saved", "Hum A Song", "To The Other Woman", and "Melody Fair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split in the top seam.)

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.)
