Jamie Cullum with Nostalgia 77Interlude ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The hippest, coolest work we've ever heard from Jamie Cullum – a wonderful collaboration with Nostalgia 77, who bring a lot of deeper jazz tones back to Cullum's music! The members of the group shift from track to track, but really give the whole thing a soulful vibe that's been missing from some of Jamie's work in the past – a move back to his roots in jazz, with a sensibility that almost even steps farther back – and links him to hip 60s British talents like Georgie Fame or Zoot Money. Cullum's voice is wonderful, as always – but it's especially great to hear it in a setting like this, which is quite far from some of the more poppy directions he'd been heading on previous records. Titles include "The Seer's Tower", "Walkin", "Don't You Know", "Interlude", "Lovesick Blues", "Come & Get Me", "Out Of This World", "Make Someone Happy", "Good Morning Heartache", "Sack O Woe", and a version of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" done with Gregory Porter.

Kurt EllingFlirting With Twilight (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Think what you may about this groove-patched hipster – we still think he's one of the best jazz vocalists of our time! Kurt Elling's carrying a torch that few other singers could handle – a direct line back to the genius male jazz vocal work of singers like Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks, armed with the confident emotionality and freely expressive style of the former, and the jazz-based virtuosity and sense of humor of the latter. This recent Blue Note session is very much in Elling's best mode – a bit too sweet in parts, but filled with some great numbers that show him always pushing the envelope, not content to just be a "modern classic" vocalist, as might be said for some of his female contemporaries in the jazz vocal realm. Titles include "Say It", "While You Are Mine", "I'm Thru With Love", "Orange Blossoms In Summertime", "Detour Ahead", "Lil Darlin", and "Easy Living". And sure, we wish there were more original compositions – as on other albums – but Elling really still does a great job with the standards! LP, Vinyl record album

Dodo GreeneMy Hour Of Need ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the few vocal albums on Blue Note's short lived 89000 series – and one of the only few ever cut by the obscure singer Dodo Greene! Green's got this raspy voice that's just great – somewhat fragile, but not in a wispy way – kind of honest and human, and somewhere in the Billie Holiday tradition, yet very much her own bag too! The backings are quite unique – handled by an excellent group led by tenorist Ike Quebec, who's also working with Grant Green on guitar and Sir Charles Thompson on organ. The band is nice, and Quebec gets in a few solos, but the real highlight is Greene, whose beautifully fragile voice gives haunting renditions of standards like "Let There Be Love", "My Hour Of Need", "Trouble In Mind", and "I Won't Cry Anymore". A fairly mournful album, and with a nice moody late night feel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing. NOTE: cover has some waviness & a large stain coving 1/4 of the back cover.)

King PleasureMoody's Mood For Love ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $2.99
The rarest of three albums that King Pleasure ever recorded – and pretty darn hard to find, too. The set was recorded after King's earlier sides for the Prestige and HiFi jazz labels, but it's in a very similar style, with some wonderful vocalese-ing done in Pleasure's landmark style. He's really one of the greatest jazz singers of the 20th century, and it's unfortunate that apart from the big hit fame of "Moody's Mood For Love" (recorded here once again), King never got strong recognition as a richly talented singer. A number of cuts on here are re-recordings of earlier work – like "Don't Get Scared" and "Sometimes I'm Happy" – and other tracks include "It Might As Well Be Spring" and "Old Black Magic". Plus, this CD reissue also expands the original album with a lot of bonus cuts, including some great unreleased numbers – a total of 18 tracks in all, and a treasure trove of work by King Pleasure!

Carmen McRaeCan't Hide Love ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the vocals still bring plenty of great inflections to play – personalizing even familiar tunes, and really helping to push the level of an already-great record! Arrangements are by Gerald Wilson, Dave Grusin, Johnny Mandel, and Thad Jones – and the set includes Carmen's hip cover of "Can't Hide Love" – plus "I Wish You Well", "Only Women Bleed", "Lost Up In Loving You", "Would You Believe", "A Child Is Born", and "All By Myself". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and light wear.)

Ernestine AndersonErnestine Anderson Swings The Penthouse ... CD
High Note, 1962. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Rare live work from Ernestine Anderson – recorded in Seattle during the same early 60s stretch when Anderson was recording for Mercury Records! The performance is quite different than the Anderson of later years – more jazz overall, and maybe a bit more composed – with less of the bluesy inflections that Ernestine opened up during her rise to fame on Concord Records, and maybe more of a cool, classy style that reminds us a bit of Sarah Vaughan on her great live sides for Mercury. The tracks are relatively short, but phrased wonderfully – and backing is by a small combo, led by pianist Dick Palombi – on titles that include "Angel Eyes", "It Could Happen To You", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Time After Time", "Just In Time", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Eliane EliasMade In Brazil ... CD
Concord, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Eliane Elias is always plenty comfortable with the music of Brazil – and this sweet session really lives up to her earlier Brazilian-styled gems for Blue Note! The format is familiar and easygoing – Eliane on both vocals and keyboards – which includes both acoustic piano and some mighty nice Fender Rhodes – amidst some larger arrangements which are always nicely grounded with acoustic percussion and other classic bossa-styled elements! There's also some great guests on the record too – guest vocals from Ed Motta, Amanda Brecker, and Take 6 – plus Roberto Menescal, who also plays some guitar as well. Titles include "Voce", "Vida", "Incendiando", "Searching", "Some Enchanted Place", "Driving Ambition", "Rio", and "No Tabuleiro Da Baiana". CD
