Mildred BaileyRockin' Chair Lady ... LP
Decca, Late 30s/1940s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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!)

Andy BeyShades Of Bey ... CD
Evidence, 1998. Used ... $6.99
Although we've been fans of Andy Bey for years (ever since his early 60s recordings with Andy & The Bey Sisters), we've got to admit that we're stunned at how successful his recent revival has been! This CD is probably the main reason for Andy's success – as it's a compelling batch of jazz vocal tracks that show Andy reinventing himself for a whole new generation of jazz listeners. The backing's by a nice small group that includes Gary Bartz, with whom Andy recorded extensively in the 70s – and the album includes a haunting reworking of Nick Drake's amazing song "River Man", plus a version of Dori Caymmi's "Like A Lover", Monk's "Straight No Chaser", and the moody "Dark Shadows", which was a page from Earl Coleman's songbook.

✨✧ 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 ChristySomething Cool (Mono & Stereo) ... CD
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!

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. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD

Chris ConnorChris ... CD
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
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.

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $23.99
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.)

Blossom DearieGive Him The Ooh-La-La ... CD
Verve/Polygram, 1957. Used ... $6.99
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", plus an alternate take of "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 FitzgeraldDream Dancing ... LP
Pablo, 1972/1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Ella swings a set of tunes by Cole Porter – her first tribute to the songwriter since a Verve songbook session of the 50s – but done with some very classic-styled backings from Nelson Riddle! Both Riddle and Ella had come up with some nice groovy elements in their music by the time of this early 70s session – and the album really benefits from those changes – picking up some of the slight bounce and undercurrents of grooviness that Fitzgerald showed on late 60s records for MPS and Reprise, which makes for some really fresh moments on these Porter tunes! The set's hardly a simple rehash of standard modes – and is more a groovy Riddle/Fitzgerald swinger overall – on tunes that include "Down In The Depths", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Anything Goes", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "At Long Last Love", and "C'Est Magnifique".

Ella FitzgeraldElla Abraca Jobim – Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Antonio Carlos Jobim Songbook ... CD
Pablo, 1980/1981. Used ... $6.99
A late session from Ella – but a nice one! The setting is bossa – as you could guess by the title – and the music is handled with a smooth west coast Brazilian approach – arrangements by Erich Bulling, and players that include Oscar Castro-Neves, Paulinho Da Costa, Alex Acuna, and Joe Pass. Zoot Sims blows a few solos, Toots Thielemans plays harmonica – and titles include "Dreamer", "Dindi", "Somewhere In The Hills", "Girl From Ipanema", "Water To Drink", "Song Of The Jet", "Wave", "Useless Landscape", and "Bonita".
