✨✧ 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 ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... $3.99
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! CD

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

✨✧ Stacey KentDreamer In Concert (with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 2012. Used ... $8.99
A great setting for Stacey Kent – one of the most lovely vocalists to emerge in recent years – heard here in a live performance that's almost got more charm than her previous studio albums for Blue Note! The space is large, but the group is nice and small – an intimate lineup that features guitar from Kent alongside the vocals, tenor and soprano sax from Jim Tomlinson, Fender Rhodes and piano from Graham Harvey, bass from Jeremy Brown, and drums from Matt Skelton – a lineup that provides perfect gentle backings for Stacey's unique way of singing – a light-voiced mode that almost feels like Blossom Dearie at times! Titles include "Waters Of March", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", "Breakfast On The Morning Tram", "O Comboio", "Dreamer", "Jardin D'Hiver", "Samba Saravah", and "Ces Petits Riens". CD features the bonus track "They Say It's Wonderful". CD

Carmen McRaeCan't Hide Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99
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".

Carmen McRaeI Am Music ... CD
Blue Note/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $5.99
Carmen McRae really opens up on this sweet 70s set for Blue Note – expanding past the traditional jazz of her roots, and even some of the groovier work of her Atlantic years – into a sweeping, contemporary sound that's all adult, all the way! The vibe is great – in the same sophisticated, soulful territory as Marlena Shaw's recordings for Blue Note during the same stretch – yet also couched in those unmistakable McRae vocals – always with a crisp edge, even in the mellowest moments – a unique sound that no other singer can touch. The set was produced by Roger Kellaway – who also arranges, along with Dave Grusin and Byron Olson – all of whom give Carmen a set of sweeping larger backings that make for a fairly majestic album – on titles that include "I Am Music", "I Never Lied To You", "Like A Lover", "Who Gave You Permission", "A Letter For Anna Lee", "You Know Who You Are", and "I Ain't Here".

✨✧ TrainchaLook Of Love – Burt Bacharach Songbook ... CD
Blue Note, 2007. Used ... $8.99
Traincha's got a funny name, but she's a heck of a great singer – as you'll hear on this wonderful tribute to the music of Burt Bacharach! This Blue Note Europe debut is a really well-crafted set – produced by Patrick Williams with some of the best poise and balance he's brought to other vocal sessions in his later years – backed with full orchestrations from the Metropole Orchestra, who bring in some nice jazzy inflections, but still respect Burt's intentions with the tunes. Bacharach plays a bit of piano on the set, and arrangements are by Williams and Vince Mendoza – on titles that include "The Windows Of The World", "The Look Of Love", "I Say A Little Prayer", "That's What Friends Are For", "Waiting For Charlie", "Falling Out Of Love", "This House Is Empty Now", and "Close To You".

✨✧ TrainchaWho'll Speak For Love – Burt Bacharach Songbook 2 ... CD
Blue Note (Netherlands), 2008. Used ... $9.99
A wonderful tribute to the mighty Bacharach – and a set that also features Burt playing piano on three of the tracks! The sound here is surprisingly soulful – way more than we'd expect from Traincha's look on the cover, or from the Blue Note placement of the album – and in a way, the album feels like some of the best mature readings of Burt's work at the start of the 70s – put together in a post-Dionne sort of way. Arrangements aren't by Bacharach, but actually by the great Pat Williams – who really brings a classic sort of feel to the record, and does a great job of setting things up for the Metropole Orchestra. Titles include "Any Day Now", "Love Is Still The Answer", "One Less Bell To Answer", "Don't Make Me Over", "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself", and "In Between The Heartaches". CD

✨✧ 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".

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight (original pressing) ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Jane HarveyTravelin Light (Leave It To Jane – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Dot/Little Jazz Bird, 1959. Used ... $8.99
Jane Harvey's a singer who didn't record much in the late 50s (according to the notes, she spent most of her time playing house with Bob Thiele!) – but she's a hell of a great singer, and one we wish had issued more sessions like this! She's got a voice trained in the big bands, one with more than enough punch to swing out in front of a large group on the stage – but she's also recording here in a hipper 50s jazz setting, one that brings a nice "close up" feel to her dynamic energy – letting it open up strongly on some swingers, and sparkle in more subtle ways on some of the gentler backings. The arrangements are by Jack Kane, and they're pretty fresh, and free from hoke – and titles include "Telephonez Moi", "Witchcraft", "Blue Again", "A Lover In The House", "Impossible", "Misty", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood". CD features 8 bonus tracks – including "Foggy River", "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "Always True To You In My Fashion", and "Close As Pages In A Book". CD
