Beverly KennySnuggled On Your Shoulder – 11 Previously Unreleased Recordings (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1954. Used ... $18.99
A real musical discovery from vocalist Beverly Kenney – rare session material from 1954, recorded even before her first few albums on the Roost label! The sound here is very spare – with Bev on vocals and Tony Tamburello on piano – in a style that might be called "demo" during later years, when singers always expected more instrumentation to be added later on – but which comes off perfectly here in a late nite, intimately jazzy mode! Beverly's vocals are wonderfully strong, but never overdone – really holding the record with a presence that's breathtaking, and almost more so than any of her later work with bigger groups. Titles include "Gay Chicks", "Tea For Two", "There Will Never Be Another You", "Moe's Blues", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", "Snuggled On Your Shoulder", and "That's All". CD
(CD sleeve has a few small spots of sticker residue.)

Billie HolidayEssential Billie Holiday Carnegie Hall Concert ... CD
Verve, 1956. Used ... $4.99
A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, and Billie emerges with songs throughout – using Millstein's narration to bracket portions of her career, then delivering the tunes associated with that portion. Backing is by an all-hip group that includes Coleman Hawkins, Kenny Burrell, Chico Hamilton, Roy Eldridge, and Buck Clayton – and titles include "I Cried For You", "My Man", "Don't Explain", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Body & Soul", "I Love My Man", and "Yesterdays".

Norma WinstoneLime Blossom ... CD
Argo/Universal (Japan), Early 70s. Used ... $29.99
A long-overdue collection of the groundbreaking work of jazz vocalist Norma Winstone! Winstone was one of the hippest singers on the European scene of the early 70s – and a great talent who crossed many boundaries to push the definition of vocal jazz. Later work was often a bit too flowery, but the tracks on this set are from her prime early 70s recordings for labels like London or Argo – recorded with the cream of Brit jazz rock, players like Mike Westbrook, Paul Rutherford, Mike Osborne, Michael Garrick, Ian Carr, and Kenny Wheeler. The focus here is on tracks that have a good groove – mostly modal, and rolling along at an excellent pace on most cuts. Titles include "Bull Dance", "Enjoy The Day", "Original Peter", "Towards Tranquility", "Songs For A Child", and "The Heart Is A Lotus". CD

New Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".
