Jamie Cullum with Nostalgia 77Interlude ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 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)... $15.99 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- ... $9.99
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.)

Dianne ReevesDianne Reeves ... CD
Blue Note, 1987. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing moment for singer Dianne Reeves – the first in a long line of excellent records for the Blue Note label – and a wonderfully tight blend of jazz and soul, put together at a level that instantly pushed Reeves into the territory of previous giants like Phyllis Hyman and Marlena Shaw! Like both of those singers, Dianne's got roots in jazz, but also pushes towards more of an R&B vibe at times – but never in a way that's commercially aimed at the charts, especially in comparison to some of her contemporaries. There's a really rich feel to the whole album – thanks to help from George Duke, who produced and played keyboards – alongside other musicians like Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Ndugu Chancler on drums. Titles include "Chan's Song (Never Said)", "I'm OK", "Sky Islands", "Harvest Time", "Yesterdays", and "Better Days". CD

Dianne ReevesIn the Moment – Live in Concert ... CD
Blue Note, 2000. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet sophisticated vocals from the great Dianne Reeves – singing here in a beautifully mellow live setting, more stripped-down than on a lot of her other studio albums. The group's very jazz-oriented – and Dianne shines nicely on great versions of "Afro Blue", "Triste", "The First Five Chapters", "Bridges (Travessia)", "Suzanne", and "Mista". Nice stuff, and our favorite album from her in years. CD

Eliane EliasMade In Brazil ... CD
Concord, 2015. Used ... $8.99
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

Billie HolidayComplete Commodore (2CD set) ... CD
GRP, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used 2CD ... $8.99
An amazing little set – and the first to really do such a bang-up job on the Billie Holiday sides recorded for the Decca and Commodore labels in the 1940s! The 3CD set is beautifully put together – with one disc of Commodore material, and two more of Decca sides – and unlike some other collections of this nature, only master takes and issued singles are included – so each of the 52 tracks is different, and you don't just hear Billie singing alternate takes over and over! Plus, the packaging is sublime – book-like, with a cloth hardcover finish – which encloses the 3CDs, as well as notes by Ashley Khan, some great vintage photos, and full discographical details on all the sessions. The evolution in sound and style is amazing – so that by the end of the Decca years, you've really heard Holiday grow as an artist – emerging to the greatness that would make her one of the most important singers of the 20th century. Titles include "The Blues Are Brewin", "Solitude", "Do Your Duty", "Gimme A Pigfoot", "There Is No Greater Love", "I'll Get By", "My Old Flame", "Billie's Blues", "As Time Goes By", "He's Funny That Way", "I'll Be Seeing You", "My Man", "I Loves You Porgy", "Baby Get Lost", "You Can't Lose A Broken Heart", and "My Sweet Hunk O Trash".

Ernestine AndersonErnestine Anderson Swings The Penthouse ... CD
High Note, 1962. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".
