Mildred BaileyRockin' Chair Lady ... LP
Decca, Late 30s/1940s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

Hadda BrooksQueen Of The Boogie & More! ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful compilation the late 40s Modern recordings of piano player, singer and all around musical pioneer Hadda Brooks – with all the tracks from the original Queen Of The Boogie 78s package – and 18 additional tracks from the period! Hadda is a lovely singer, and the set has a number of sweet vocal numbers, but her most lasting impact is no doubt her easygoing, but masterful boogie piano playing. Fittingly, there's a huge number of instrumental treasures here, and it's really tough to imagine a lot of the great R&B and 50s rock and roll piano taking hold if trailblazers like Hadda Brooks didn't get the ball rolling! Includes "Juke Box Boogie", "Bully Wully Boogie", "Boogie At The Bandstand", "Night Life", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Humoresque Boogie", "Strollin' 'N' Rollin'", "Basin Street Blue", "Moonglow", ""743 Blues", "Hungara (Gypsy)", "Greig's Concerto Boogie In A Minor", "Stardust" and more. 24 tracks in all – a solid dozen of which were recorded for Modern in the late 40s, but were never before released!

June ChristyBallads For Night People ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good ... $3.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons – first brought to record so beautifully by June on the Something Cool album, and wonderfully revisited in this fantastic set! Arrangements are by husband Bob Cooper, and although they're a bit less arch-modern than some of Christy's work with Pete Rugolo, they still really get at the boozy genius of June's vocals at their best. Titles include "I Had A Little Sorrow", "Night People", "Make Love To Me", "Shadow Woman", "My Ship", and "Kissing Bug". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some seam splitting.)

June ChristySomething Cool (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $8.99
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. 11 tracks total. CD

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". Fantastic stuff! Stereo re-recording of the full LP – from the late 50s.

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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.)

Bing CrosbyBing – A Musical Autobiography (5LP set) ... LP
Decca, 1954. Near Mint- 5LPs ... $29.99
A really amazing set – a real standout, even in the career of Bing Crosby! The package was put together in 1954 – after Bing had been a solo act for over 20 years – and it features Crosby re-recording many of his classics, with cool small combo backing from the Buddy Cole trio on some tracks, and original recordings on others – all with Bing himself providing narration between the tunes – telling his full story in music! LP, Vinyl record album
(Super-heavy Decca vinyl, with booklet too – and even includes key for lock and original shipping box from Decca! BUT, the lock has snapped away from the cover lid, which is slightly ripped. The rest is great, though – even has inner sleeves.)

Blossom DearieGive Him The Ooh-La-La (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1957. Used ... $21.99
One of Blossom Dearie's fantastic albums for Verve – all of which stand as some of the best recorded work she ever did! The album features Blossom in a warm intimate group, which gives great focus to her endearing voice, and lively piano. She's backed by Ray Brown and Herb Ellis, and she sings some nice groovy numbers that hearken back to her days in France – including "The Riviera", "Plus Je T'Embrasse", and "Give Him The Ooh-La-La". Nice stuff, and with a groovy cover to boot! CD

✨✧ Georgie FameShorty ... CD
CBS/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $3.99
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences! Georgie's still got his Mose Allison-inspired vocal style, but the band behind him is a lot more open-ended, and grooves along freely in these great organ riffing rhythms – open-ended and very swinging on some numbers, but in a way that's different from Fame's rougher-edged roots. Titles include "Oliver's Gone", "Somebody Stole My Thunder", "Fully Booked", "Inside Story", "Seventh Son" and more. CD

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis ArmstrongPorgy & Bess (2LP version) ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the hippest takes ever on the Porgy & Bess score – done in duet format by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, in a fuller spirit than their other albums for Verve! Like many late 50s albums of Gershwin's score, this one was issued in advance of the film with Sidney Poitier – but unlike most, this is less of a cash-in affair, and really takes Gershwin's music on its own – serving it up with that newly serious style that Verve was hitting with some artists, especially Ella, in the latter half of the 50s. Most tracks have relatively full backings – strings and jazz orchestrations – and the double-length set features 15 tracks that include "Buzzard Song", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "My Man's Gone Now", "I Wants To Stay Here", "Summertime", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "What You Want Wid Bess", "There's A Boat Dat's Leavin Soon For New York", "Oh Lawd I'm On My Way", and "A Woman Is A Sometime Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove, including the booklet. Cover has some discoloration around the edges inside the gatefold.)

A very cool split 10" album! Side one features one of Slim Gaiilard's all-time classics – a set that helps him update his 40s groove in great Verve fidelity! Side two features piano from Mead Lux Lewis at the JATP! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is great, and vinyl is nice and clean overall – with light surface marks.)
