Oscar Brown JrBrother Where Are You ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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".

Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Billie HolidayStrange Fruit ... LP
Commodore/Atlantic, 1939/1944. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
A great issue of some of Billie Holiday's classic sides for the Commodore label – a company she didn't work with often, but home to some of her best material of the early years! The tracks here were mostly recorded in 1944, but the set also features some early bits from 1939 as well – and backing on all numbers is by small combos, with players who include Eddie Heywood on piano, Frankie Newton or Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Tab Smith or Lem Davis on alto, Teddy Walters on guitar, and Kenneth Hollon on tenor sax. Titles include Holiday's seminal "Strange Fruit" – a track that's stunning both for its handling of racial subject matter, and for the fact that it's one of the few penned by Billie herself! Other titles include "Yesterdays", "I'll Get By", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Lover Come Back To Me", "I'm Yours", and "Embraceable You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Peggy LeeLet's Love ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $3.99
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+ ... $4.99
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".

✨✧ Chris ConnorJazz Date With Chris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – handling all the arrangements for a few small combos with players who include Oscar Pettiford on bass, Sam Most on flute, Eddie Costa on vibes, Joe Puma on guitar, and Lucky Thompson and Al Cohn on tenor – all modern-minded players who turn out to be a really great fit for Connor on the date. A few numbers even feature added Latin percussion from Mongo Santamaria – and titles include "All I Need Is You", "Driftwood", "Fancy Free", "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", and "Lonely Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $23.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original deep groove pressing. Cover has some unusual DJ pen notes on front and back cover – but is nice overall. And the style of the notes is oddly compelling.)

Double SixDouble Six Of Paris Sing Ray Charles ... LP
Philips, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the great records made by the cool French jazzy vocal group that included Ward Swingle and Christine LeGrand, and which did stuff that was much more straightforwardly jazzy than the semi-classical work of the Swingle Singers. This LP's got them backed by Jerome Richardson and his quartet, and has them running through a set of tracks associated with Ray Charles' Atlantic work. Cuts include "Stompin' Room Only, "Hit The Road, Jack", "Yes, Indeed", and "One Mint Julep", and all have a swingin' jazz vocalese sound. Cool stuff by one of the great lost groups of the 60's.

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.)

Carmen McRaeMs Jazz ... LP
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
A relatively hip set of tracks – similar to some of Carmen's work on Atlantic and Blue Note from the same time, in which she's singing a range of material that goes past her earlier jazz vocal titles, showing an interest in the hipper sounds of the pop realm. The group's a small one, with Zoot Sims on tenor and Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar – and tracks include "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Masquerade", "You & I", "It's The Good Life", and "Livin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a press flaw that plays with some noise on "You're Mine You". Cover has a cutout notch and hole.)
