Blossom DearieMy Gentleman Friend (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Verve/Polygram (UK), 1959. Used ... $11.99
A magical exercise in understatement – and one of Blossom's best albums for Verve! The late 50s session features Blossom back in the US and working with a small combo that includes Bobby Jaspar on flute, Ray Brown on bass, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Ed Thigpen on drums – all grooving with Blossom's vocals and piano in a spare, yet swinging approach to jazz! The tracks are touched with those wonderful little touches and sweetly-voiced moments that always make Blossom's records better than the rest – and titles include "Little Jazz Bird", "Gentleman Friend", "Boum", "L'Etang", and "Chez Moi".

Billie HolidayEssential Billie Holiday Carnegie Hall Concert ... CD
Verve, 1956. Used ... $1.99
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".

✨✧ Gitte Haenning/Clarke Boland Big BandGitte Haenning Meets The Clarke-Boland Big Band ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the rare few vocal jazz sessions cut by the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band – a highly swinging affair that ranks with the group's best work of the time for MPS! Singer Gitte Haenning was a bit of a pop-styled vocalist at the time – but in the company of the CBBB she really sounds great – coming across with an almost-icy tone that reminds us a bit of the work of Monica Zetterlund, and grooving with a soaring style that swings perfectly alongside the group! As usual, the players in the ensemble are the cream of the crop on both sides of the Atlantic – and include Johnny Griffin, Tony Coe, John Surman, Kenny Clarke, Benny Bailey, and Dusko Goykovich – all master musicians who know how to perfectly come together, yet also break out with a sweet solo when they get the space! The whole thing's got a sound that easily matches the CBBB vocal work with Carmen McRae and Mark Murphy – and titles include "I Love The Life I Live", "November Girl", "My Kinda World", "Sack Full Of Dreams", "Go To Hell", and "Marriage Is For Old Folks".

✨✧ Abbey LincolnIt's Magic ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Early work by Abbey – recorded in a mode that's straighter than she'd sound a few years later – less angry, more like other jazz vocalists of the time, but still with that unmistakable Abbey Lincoln quality in the voice! The arrangements on the set are by Benny Golson – using that light angular edge that always makes his work such a great fit for a hip singer – and other players on the set include Kenny Dorham, Curtis Fuller, Jerome Richardson, Wynton Kelly, and Sahib Shihab. Titles include "I Am In Love", "An Occasional Man", "Out Of The Past", "Love", "Little Niles", "Exactly Like You", and "Just For Me". CD
