Audrey MorrisVoice Of Audrey Morris ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The voice of Audrey Morris is a great one – sweet, but also sad too – but never in a too-sentimental way, and perfect for the gentler touch of the Bethlehem label! Audrey's working here with backings penned by Marty Paich – who also plays celeste on the album, with a group that features Stu Williamson on trumpet, Bill Pitman on guitar, Joe Mondragon on bass, and Irv Cottler or Alvin Stoller on drums. Paich uses a bit of strings on the date – never too much, but just enough to underscore the sadness of the bluer tunes, and create a bit of softness on a few of the ballads – all in a way that's never too dramatic, and which always gives way to Audrey's vocals when they slide into the mix – preserving the intimate quality that always makes for her best sort of setting. The track selection is great – far more unusual than the typical Bethlehem vocal date, with some great late nite numbers that include "If Love Were All", "I Never Mention Your Name", "It's Always You", "What More Can A Woman Do", "Blue Turning Gray Over You", "I Go For That", and "I Wonder What Became Of Me".

✨✧ Doris DrewDelightful Doris Drew ... LP
Mode/VSOP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A delightful session of west coast vocal jazz – done by singer Doris Drew, who we only know from this album! Doris has a sound that's a bit warmer than some of her contemporaries on the scene – and she's backed here by a great lineup that includes Marty Paich on both piano and celeste, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Herb Geller on alto, and Dave Pell on tenor – plus a bit of added string accompaniment from time to time. The sound is lush, but light – and amazingly recorded so that Doris' vocals stand out starkly on most of the numbers, especially the mellower ones. Titles include "I've Got The Sun In The Morning", "You & The Night & The Music", "I Love You", "I Cried For You", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Once You Find Your Guy", and "If I Should Lose You".

✨✧ Kathryn MosesMusic In My Heart ... LP
PM, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second album from Kathryn Moses – a sweet mix of warm vocals, funky flute, and even a bit of sax! Kathyrn's as great a singer as she is an instrumentalist – and the album offers equal parts of her talents – stepping out with a style that's often a bit funky at the bottom, with an electric mixture of flute, guitars, percussion, and bass. Gene Perla produced the record, and it's got a fair bit of choppy grooves that are right up there in the best PM Records mode – more proof that the Canadian scene could groove nicely when it wanted. Titles include the jazz dancer "Lucky Duck", plus the cuts "Should Be Ancient History", "Katrina", "More Than Ever", "Music In My Heart", and "Love To See You Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing, on Celeste – heavy cover and great vinyl!)
