Robert MitchumThat Man ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Late 60s. Used ... $8.99
A wealth of tracks by Robert Mitchum! That's right, THE Robert Mitchum – actor who starred in a wealth of classic noir and action films, a consummate hipster who fancied himself to be quite a singer. In the late 50s, Mitchum focused most of his talents on calypso music – already reissued on the Calypso Is Like So album, and included here with a set of more obscure numbers from the late 60s, country and western tunes recorded in Nashville, mostly during the spring of 1967. Mitchum's easy-going style actually works quite well on the tunes – drawling along with a boozy finish that's somewhere in the same territory as Dean Martin's country work, but a bit rougher. Bob's not the greatest singer in the world, but overall, his presentation of the material is quite enjoyable – and proof that he's one of the most compelling figures to ever grace the silver screen. Titles include "Not Me", "Sunny", "Ballad of Thunder Road", "Coconut Water", "They Dance All Night", "In My Place", "That Man Right There", "Walker's Woods", "Little Ole Wine Drinker Me", "Mama Looka Boo Boo", "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep", "You Deserve Each Other", and "Ricardo's Mountain".

Lorez AlexandriaLorez Sings Pres – A Tribute To Lester Young ... LP LP format
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
A classic album from one of our favorite jazz singers ever – a set that really set a whole new standard for a generation! Even at this early stage, Lorez Alexandria was an amazingly accomplished vocalist – as you'll hear on this excellent selection of tunes from the Lester Young songbook – laidback and soulful tunes that really let her open up and do her thing! The backing on the album's nice and earthy – provided by a Chicago group that includes King Fleming piano, Charles Stepney vibes, Paul Serrano trumpet, and Vernel Fournier drums – and the overall style is perfect for Lorez' deep soulful vocals. Titles include "DB Blues", "Easy Living", "No Eyes Blues", "This Year's Kisses", and "Jumpin With Symphony Sid". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy early pressing – with black Federal label, and deep groove. Vinyl has light surface marks, but plays well.)

Mildred BaileyRockin' Chair Lady ... LP LP format
Decca, Late 30s/1940s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A collection of older singles by Mildred Bailey – recorded after her years with Paul Whiteman's band, in a laidback bluesy style that was kind of a 30s revival and sweetening of styles used during the big blues boom of the 20s. Mildred's got a heck of a voice, one that's undaunted even by the older recording mode of the tracks – and backing on all numbers is in a late nite small combo mode, by either the Delta Rhythm Boys, or a quartet with Herman Chittison on piano and Dave Barbour on guitar. Titles include "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Rockin Chair", "All Too Soon", "Lover Come Back To Me", "It's So Peaceful In The Country", and "More Than You Know". LP, Vinyl record album

Diahann CarrollDiahann Caroll Sings Harold Arlen Songs ... LP LP format
RCA, 1957. Very Good ... $5.99
Diahann Carroll gets some classy backings here – arrangements from Ralph Burns that really make these tunes come alive! Carroll's vocals are always great, but they seem to sparkle even more here than on other early albums – as Burns' backings feature unusual instrumentation and odd phrasing, which helps make the set way more than just another Harold Arlen songbook session. Sometimes the strings are dark and moody, and other nice bits include vibes and guitar – all helping to pull new energy out of tunes that include "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "A Sleeping Bee", "My Shining Hour", and "What's Good About Goodbye".

June ChristyBallad Collection ... CD CD format
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
Great stuff from one of our favorite singers of all time! June has a way with a ballad that still leaves us breathless – turning simple somber songs into dark tapestries of despair and loss, infused with a boozy maturity that makes the lyrics resonate with a sense of pain that's always missing from other versions of the tracks (if there are other versions of the tracks – as some of June's are so good that nobody ever dared touch the songs again!) This CD brings together 16 cuts that perfectly illustrate June's incredible talents, including a number from her classic Something Cool album, issued here in the stereo recordings, which are completely different from the mono ones, which were recorded at a different session years earlier. Titles include "Interlude", "Winter's Got Spring Up Its Sleeve", "The Wind", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Night People", "Nobody's Heart", "Don't Explain", and "Cry Like The Wind". CD

June ChristySomething Cool (Mono & Stereo) ... CD CD format
Capitol, 1953. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. Titles include "Something Cool", "It Could Happen To You", "Lonely House", "I'm Thrilled", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Plus, this special CD reissue features the mono and stereo recordings of the album – completely different ones, as the album was originally recorded in mono in 1954, and completely re-recorded again with the same arrangements in 1960!

An excellent CD that brings together 24 tracks lifted from some of Chris' lesser-known recordings for the Bethlehem label – including some tunes from eps and early 10" LPs. Backing on the set is by The Ellis Larkins Trio, The Vinnie Burke Quartet, The Ralph Sharon combo, and Sy Oliver's orchestra – and the CD features tracks that include "All about Ronnie", "In Other Words", "A Good Man Is A Seldom Thing", "I Hear Music", "Out Of This World", and "Lush Life" – in both original and alternate versions.

Laika FatienMisery – A Tribute To Billie Holiday ... CD CD format
Nocturne (France), 2008. Used ... $9.99
A really great little album – and light years from the straight torch tribute you might expect! Laika Fatien's working here with bold piano help from Robert Glasper – a player whose soulful, flowing tones have made his Blue Note albums some real recent treasures in our collections – and whose music here is a perfect match for Laika's righteous style of singing! Although the tunes are familiar numbers from the Billie Holiday songbook, the execution is quite different than the originals – often not as fragile, with a brooding sense of power that's totally great – especially on the tunes that bring in some added work from saxophonist David El Malek. If you dug Laika's previous album, you'll like this one equally well – and hopefully the Holiday connection will hip some new listeners to her sound too, and bring this excellent singer a wide new audience. Titles include "Lady's Back In Town", "You Can't Lose A Broken Heart", "All Of You", "Misery", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Strange Fruit", "Gloomy Sunday", and "Left Alone". CD

Happy DollsShow Album No 1 ... CD CD format
Beatball (Korea), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99
A very cool quintet of Korean lovelies from the 70s – five gals who could sing sweetly when they wanted, but also hit some funkier sounds on their instruments as well! The Happy Dolls follow strongly in the tradition of earlier Army base acts from the postwar Korean scene – but they've also got a groovier sound overall, and maybe more of an international appeal too – given the time they spent on the Vegas stages in the early part of the decade, and their frequent work in Canada during the latter half. This set was recorded in Toronto, and it's got a very unusual approach that mixes equal parts small combo funk with some fuller harmony singing as well – a shift that takes place from track to track on the set, which makes for a surprising sense of variety. The group turn in two great covers – "Funky Stuff" and "Pick Up The Pieces" – both of which work great in kind of an indie funk mode – and other tunes include their own "Bombie", a take on "Shake Your Booty", and even a "Drum Solo" number!

Jane HarveyTravelin Light (Leave It To Jane – plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
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
