✨✧ AkikoHit Parade – A Tribute To London Nite ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Man, Akiko always knows how to keep things interesting – always moving between different genres and styles, to serve up a fresh new groove with each release! This set's got the singer hitting a host of British rock tunes, mostly from the 80s – doing them with a harder edge than you might expect from her other albums – some of the heavier modes picked up on her R&B tribute, but a lot sharper overall! There's less jazz in the mix than before, replaced by guitars that fit these tunes well – and there's almost a new wave feel to the record at points. Titles include versions of "Breakaway", "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", "Sugar Baby Love", "Video Killed The Radio Star", "99 Red Balloons", "Wake Up Boo", "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me", and "Goody Two Shoes".

✨✧ Les Double SixLes Double Six (Les Double Six/Meet Quincy Jones) (with bonus track) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1960/1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great early work by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American jazz vocal groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross or The Hi Los – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the arrangements – and it also features work by Eddy Louiss, Christiane Legrand, and vocalist Ward Swingle, in the years before he took off to form the Swingle Singers! This wonderfully remastered CD package features 19 tracks from their first two albums, plus one rare additional cut – titles include "Walkin", "Rat Race", "Meet Benny Bailey", "Fascination", "Boo's Blues", "Naima", "Boplicity", "Westwood Walk", and "Early Autumn".

Chet BakerChet Baker Sings & Plays With Bud Shank, Russ Freeman & Strings ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Used ... $5.99
A classic album of vocal tracks from Chet Baker – working here with a core group that features piano by Russ Freeman and flute by Bud Shank – plus additional arrangements on some tracks by the likes of Johnny Mandel, Marty Paich, and Frank Campo. The album's classic Chet all the way through – cool but fragile – summed up in the set's perfect take on the stone classic "Lets Get Lost" – plus titles that include "Just Friends", "Grey December", "I Remember You", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "I Wish I Knew", and "Daybreak".

Dee Dee BridgewaterLive At Yoshi's ... CD
Verve/Jazz Heritage, 1998. Used ... $6.99
Warm, wonderful work from Dee Dee Bridgewater – a relatively straight jazz album, and a hell of a swinger, too! The set's a live date, and has a relaxed, easygoing quality we really love – that soulful, personal feel that Dee Dee picked up strongly in her later years – quite a change from the mode she used on her soul recordings of the 70s. There's definitely a nod here towards older modes of jazz singing too – given that Bridgewater scats a bit at points, almost Ella-esque – but even amidst some familiar tunes, there's a decidedly Dee Dee feel to the whole record, that distinct touch that always makes her records stand out. Instrumentation includes piano and organ from Thierry Eliez, bass from Thomas Bramerie, and drums from Ali Jackson – and titles include "Love For Sale", "Undecided", "Stairway To The Stars", "Sex Machine", "Midnight Sun", and "Cherokee".

Lincoln BrineyHomeward Bound – The Seasons Of Simon & Garfunkel ... CD
Muzak (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $24.99
A beautiful, beautiful record from Lincoln Briney – a jazz singer at heart, but one who's also got a hip underground vibe, too – a style that really takes us back to that unique 70s moment of singers like Kenny Rankin or Michael Franks at their early best! Like both of those artists, Briney's not content to keep his vocals focused on conventional material – and here unlocks the best work of the team of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel – wonderful songs from their late 60s years, served up here by Lincoln in a mode that's almost bossa jazz – with light rhythms, warm keyboards, and lots of guitar providing this instrumental glow that really illuminates the tunes in a new way – while Briney sings the lyrics at a level that's completely different too. The choice of songs is wonderful – not just the hits, but some overlooked album gems too – and titles include "Bookends", "So Long Frank Lloyd Wright", "Old Friends", "Song For The Aking", "Punky's Dilemma", and "April Come She Will".

June ChristyBallads For Night People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1961. Used ... $6.99
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". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from the Do Re Mi album – including "Make Someone Happy", "Asking For You", and "All You Need Is A Quarter". CD

Georgie Fame & The Blue FlamesRhythm & Blues At The Flamingo (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $29.99
Blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of a American small organ combo, especially the early 60s variety that often played equal parts soul jazz and R&B! Georgie's on the Hammond, and also sings with a rough-edged style that's plenty soulful, and incredibly appealing – a mode that oozes charisma, but never sounds fake or forced. Other instrumentation includes tenor, baritone sax, bass, drums, and conga – plus some great guitar from Big Jim Sullivan – and titles include "Do The Dog", "Eso Beso", "Work Song", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Shop Around", "Humpty Dumpty", and "You Can't Sit Down". This 2016 edition comes loaded with a huge number of bonus tracks, too – with 1964 BBC Session recordings of "Night Train", "Walking The Dog", "Do-Re-Mi", "You're Breaking My Heart" wtih Long John Baldry and more, plus "Parker's Mood", "Molasses", "Funky Mama (Blue Moon Bootleg Version)", "Money (That's What I Want)" and lots more. 10 tracks on the original album – plus 13 bonus tracks!

Free DesignCosmic Peekaboo ... CD
Marina (Germany), 2001. New Copy ... $15.99
New millennium work from the legendary Free Design! And surprisingly, the album's pretty darn great. It really picks up where the group's last recordings of the early 70s left off – modernizing the sound slightly, giving it a mid 70s LA groove, but still staying very true to the group's original naive harmony style. Original leader Chris Dedrick arranged and produced the album, and it features the original trio of Sandy, Chris, and Bruce Dedrick, plus some additional vocals by newcomer Rebecca Pellett. If anything, the songs are perhaps a bit sadder than some of the group's early work – showing the toll of time and years – but they're no less compelling vocally, and all the harmonies are wonderfully intact. Titles include "Day Breaks", "Peekaboo", "Younger Son", "McCarran Airport", "The Hook", and "Listen". CD

Dizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of ParisDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... CD
Philips, 1963. Used ... $5.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma".

Bonnie GuitarOnly The Moon Man Knows – Rare Recordings 1951 to 1957 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Sublime sounds from the great Bonnie Guitar – a really unique artist who was part jazz singer, part California country – and very much at home on these rare early singles! Most of the music was recorded in 50s Los Angeles – and has a way of mixing country twang with hipper, more sophisticated styles – always with this great level of production that has a nice current of darkness overall, which brings Bonnie's vocals and guitar together in this harmonic style that's not too far from other 50s great like Les & Mary Paul, or The Chordettes – neither of whom are a direct comparison, but who might make for great listening next to this CD. Many of these tracks haven't seen the light of day since their original issue on 78rpm discs – many of which are pictured in the very thick booklet, which also has lots of notes on the music – and the set features a total of 34 tracks, with titles that include "Hello Hello Please Answer The Phone", "If You See My Love Dancing", "Clinging Vine", "Open The Door To Your Heart", "Heart's Desire", "Please My Love", "Midget Auto Blues", "I Lost My Turkey", and "Don't Keep Me Waitin".

Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 19.99
Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

Bobby Hebb & Others50th Anniversary Collection Of Sunny ... CD
Trocadero (Germany), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool compilation that pays fitting tribute to one of the greatest songs of the 60s! When Bobby Hebb first recorded "Sunny" way back in 1966 – he probably had little idea that it would rocket him to the top of the charts, nor that it would go onto become one of the most popular songs of its time, getting covered in a variety of musical styles, by a huge amount of artists over the next few years. This package brings together 15 versions of the amazing track "Sunny" – including the original by Bobby Hebb, plus covers of the tune by Booker T & The MGs, Dusty Springfield, Wilson Pickett, Shirley Bassey, Robert Mitchum, Herbie Mann & Tamiko Jones, Jose Feliciano, Ella Fitzgerald, Georgie Fame, The Head Shop, John Schroeder Orchestra, Cher, and an especially nice one by James Brown and The Dee Felice Trio with Marva Whitney! (Soul, Vocalists) CD
Also available 50th Anniversary Collection Of Sunny (180 gram pressing) ... LP 22.99
