✨✧ Wanda StaffordIn Love For The Very First Time – Introducing Wanda Stafford (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Roulette/LP Time (Spain), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great debut from singer Wanda Stafford – and the kind of set that makes you think she's been recording albums like this for years! Wanda's got a hell of a voice, right from the start – a nice punch that really fits with the choice of material on the date – and with the lively arrangements, which often have these playful horn parts moving up and down in the background – almost in a Capitol Records Jack Marshall or Billy May sort of style – although the instrumentation isn't credited here. The mix of great music and swinging vocals is great – and the album's a real knockout from Stafford, with cuts that include "Ridin On The Moon", "In Love For The Very First Time", "Hooray For Love", "Let There Be Love", "Late Late Show", and "Love".

Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

✨✧ Anita KerrBert Kaempfert Turns Us On ... CD
Warner/Collectors Choice, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to imagine Anita Kerr being turned on – especially given her school marm-ish look on the cover – but the album's a pretty darn groovy set, and one that certainly shows Kerr picking up some of the best easy elements of the 60s! The Burt Kaempfert touch is heard here especially in the album's use of electric bass – a nicely bouncing element that gives most of the tunes a lot more of a bottom than some of Kerr's other work – used in that trademark stepping style that Burt first laid down himself a few years before on worldwide instrumental hits, and made even better here by Anita's great quartet and their warmly-crafted vocal harmonies! Titles include many tunes presented in a Kaempfert-styled way – but with vocals – and tracks include "Love", "I Can't Help Remembering You", "Two Can Live On Love Alone", 'Spanish Eyes", "Remember When", "Danke Schoen", "Strangers In The Night", "Wonderland By Night", and "A Swingin' Safari".

✨✧ Luciana SouzaNew Bossa Nova ... CD
Verve, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
Lovely modern bossa and lightly jazzy takes on the works of some the great American songwriters of the past several decades – including Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen – plus a surprising (and rewarding) choice in Elliott Smith. This is the first record we've heard from Luciana singing exclusively in English – also her debut for Verve – and it's a sweet one! Her vocals sail effortlessly over bed of bossa guitar and cavaquino, vibes, drums and percussion, piano, sax and keys. Titles include Joni Mitchell's "Down To You", Leonard Cohen's "Here It Is", Elliott Smith's "Satellite", Steely Dan's "Were You Blind That Day" and "Love Is For Strangers", Randy Newman's "Living Without You", Brian Wilson's "God Only Knows", "Never Die Young" with James Taylor and more.
