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

✨✧ Eliane EliasMade In Brazil ... CD
Concord, 2015. Used ... $8.99
Eliane Elias is always plenty comfortable with the music of Brazil – and this sweet session really lives up to her earlier Brazilian-styled gems for Blue Note! The format is familiar and easygoing – Eliane on both vocals and keyboards – which includes both acoustic piano and some mighty nice Fender Rhodes – amidst some larger arrangements which are always nicely grounded with acoustic percussion and other classic bossa-styled elements! There's also some great guests on the record too – guest vocals from Ed Motta, Amanda Brecker, and Take 6 – plus Roberto Menescal, who also plays some guitar as well. Titles include "Voce", "Vida", "Incendiando", "Searching", "Some Enchanted Place", "Driving Ambition", "Rio", and "No Tabuleiro Da Baiana". CD

Teddi KingMiss Teddi King (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville (Japan), 1954. Used ... $16.99
Great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". Great reissue of the original 10" LP! CD

Johnny MathisI'm Coming Home ... CD
Columbia, 1973. Used ... $11.99
Johnny Mathis gets a great new sound here – thanks to Philly production and arrangements from the great Thom Bell! Thom had quite a hand in the songs, too – as almost all numbers were written by the team of Bell and Linda Creed – really sensitive songwriters who've got an adult, mature approach to the music – one that still respects Mathis' roots in other vocal territory, but which also gives him a bit more soulful depth, too. The setting is wonderful, and the record's a real standout in Johnny's 70s career – one that helped reignite interest in the singer at a time when so many folks had left him behind. Titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Foolish", "I'm Stone In Love With You", "A Baby's Born", "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "I Just Wanted To Be Me", and a classic version of "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart".

✨✧ Carmen McRaeFine & Mellow – Live At Birdland West ... CD
Concord, 1988. Used ... $3.99
A mighty nice setting for Carmen McRae, and a bit different than usual too – especially given that the backing group is a pretty soulful tenor/organ combo! Jack McDuff handles the Hammond, and Red Holloway plays both tenor and alto, with some nice comping from Phil Upchurch on guitar in the group – and this mix of hip players gives the set a more soulful swing than some other McRae dates from the time – and from other times as well – almost going for the feel of some of the 60s Etta Jones sets on Prestige. Titles include "Black & Blue", "My Handy Man Ain't Handy No More", "Fine & Mellow", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry", and "One More Chance". CD

Annie RossGasser ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1959. Used ... $8.99
Great stuff – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". CD features bonus cuts too! CD

Frank Sinatra & Count BasieIt Might As Well Be Swing ... CD
Reprise, Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
One of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them. The move seems to be an unintentional way of covering for Frank's slightly failing pipes – but it also picks up on a seminal beat change in 60s pop, the same sort of gentle snapping groove that you'd find in the best work by Bacharach, a shift that really infuses Frank's vocals with a whole new sound, one that shows that he's ready to keep on growing and growing after being stuck in a Nelson Riddle rut. All tracks are superb – hip 60s pop and showtunes, like "I Believe In You", "Fly Me To the Moon", "More", "The Good Life", "Wives & Lovers", and "I Wanna Be Around". CD

Kitty WhiteNew Voice In Jazz (plus Sweet Talk) ... CD
Mercury/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1958. Used ... $9.99
Kitty White's first album for Mercury – packaged here with a bonus album recorded a few years later for Roulette! First up is New Voice In Jazz – a sublime set recorded right at the height of Mercury's jazz years – and done in a personal, unfettered style that's really great – right up there with more famous albums for the label by Dinah Washington or Sarah Vaughan from the same time. Backing is by a small combo that includes Gerald Wiggins on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Callender on bass, and Chico Hamilton on drums – plus some especially nice tenor sax work from Georgie Auld, who cuts in nicely next to Kitty's dark-hued vocals. Titles include "Skylark", "So Many Beautiful Men", "If You Were Mine", "Among My Souvenirs", "Softly", "Out Of This World", and "See Saw". Sweet Talk is one of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar – plus some Latin percussion from Carlos Vidal on the bottom. Yet despite the presence of all of these players, many numbers have an up-close quality that makes us feel like we're hearing Kitty's moody vocals in the backroom of some private club in LA. Her phrasing is great throughout – articulate, but never too much so – and titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "It Was So Beautiful", "Alone Together", "Talk Me Some Sweet Talk", "Please Be Patient", and "Dat's Love".

Nancy Wilson & George ShearingSwingin's Mutual (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... $8.99
An album of mixed vocal and instrumental cuts, some with Nancy in the lead, backed by Shearing's combo, others with Shearing's group alone. The vocal tracks are quite nice jazz ones – and include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Born To Be Blue", "All Night Long", and "Let's Live Again". Shearing's backing is pretty nice, and gives Nancy's style a really moody feel that's different than her pop work! The CD contains 5 previously unreleased bonus tracks, including "Evansville", "My Gentleman Friend", and "Whisper Not". CD

Monica ZetterlundMake Mine Swedish Style (Japanese paper sleeve version) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1964. Used ... $18.99
Make ours Swedish Style too! This set's one of the best early albums by Swedish singer Monica Zetterlund – one of our favorite singers ever, and one of those rare European lovelies who could sing in English with the best of American vocalists, but who could also pick up on the changes in European jazz at the time, and take her work past the usual standards of vocal jazz. This nicely swinging set features Monica's voice over backings by the Bill McGuffie Quartet, a tight little ensemble that includes a conga, which gives the tracks a nice rolling groove – always a plus, considering how much Monica loves to swing! Titles include "Left Alone", "Blue Prelude", "He's My Guy", "Detour Ahead", "You've Changed", and "The Second Time Around". CD
