Nat King ColeSings For Two In Love (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $3.99
Wonderful stuff by Nat – truly one of his greatest Capitol vocal albums, and set to great arrangements by Nelson Riddle, very much in a classic mode. Tracks include heartbreakers like "Dinner For One, James" and "There Goes My Heart" – plus more lively standards like "Almost Like Being In Love" and "This Can't Be Love"! LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeThose Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A great later record from Nat King Cole – kind of corny, but in a really great way – and in a style that ended up making the whole thing a real standout in Nat's last few years on the planet! The songs are mostly old-timey, but swung by Nat in this weird 60s version of nostalgia that really really works – and makes for this odd fantasy of a youth that Cole probably never had himself, directed at a version of mainstream America that would hardly have given an entertainer like him the time of day back in the 30s! Ralph Carmichael handles the arrangements – and in addition to the hit title track "Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer", other titles include "That's What They Meant", "Don't Forget", "Get Out & Get Under The Moon", and "After The Ball Is Over".

One of the most obscure albums from Morgana King – who looks surprisingly young and sexy on the cover – still much more jazz than folk, and with very spare backing that just features Chuck Wayne on guitar and Ernie Furtado on bass! LP, Vinyl record album

Teddi KingMiss Teddi King (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville (Japan), 1954. Used ... $13.99
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

Teddi KingNow In Vogue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville (Japan), 1955. Used ... $22.99
One of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto! The Storyville approach really brings out the best in Teddi's vocals – as the easy-going nature of the record has King sounding a bit more grown-up and adult than before – singing lines in a slightly sultry style, yet still with some of the bird-like notes heard on other albums. Taylor's piano adds a nice grounding to the record – and titles include "Old Folks", "Why Do You Suppose", "I'm In The Market For You", "You Hit The Spot", "Something To Live For", and "Like A Ship Without A Sail".

✨✧ Nat King ColeLive At The Circle Room ... CD
Capitol, 1947. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare unrelased recordings by the legendary Nat King Cole Trio! Forget all the soppy pop stuff you've heard a million times – this is the real deal, the kind of stuff that got Nat noticed in the first place, and the type of material that he was playing for LA audiences in the immediate postwar years. The trio features the great Oscar Moore on guitar, plus Johnny Miller on bass and Nat on piano and vocals. Tracks include "Everyone Is Saying Hello Again", "I Found A New Baby", "My Sugar Is So Refined", "I'm Through With Love", "Oh, But I Do", and "I You Can't Smile & Say Yes". CD

✨✧ King PleasureGolden Days ... CD
Hi Fi/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made! The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. CD

✨✧ Nat King Cole & Quincy JonesSwiss Radio Days Vol 33 – Nat King Cole & Quincy Jones ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful set by Nat King Cole joined by conductor/bandleader Quincy Jones and his Big Band – performing live in Zurich on May 1, 1960 – and what an impeccable performance it is! Quincy was touring with a pretty amazing line-up in his Big Band at this point – with Benny Bailey, Jimmy Cleveland, Melba Liston, Phil Woods, Sahib Shihab, Joe Harris and more – and they kick off the set with a couple gentler numbers before swinging more heavily on a couple, then introduce Nat – who's voice is in perfect form here. He sings his hits with the big band, some additional strings and a pared down trio format for a few – so we really get a broad representation of what these consummate performers can do in a number of settings, all in one concert, to boot. Wonderful stuff – released for the first time ever! Titles include "Moanin'", The Midnight Sun Will Never Set", "Airmail Special", "Unforgettable", "Sweet Lorraine", "Tea For Two", "Madrid", "The Phantom Blues", "Route 66", "Joe Turner's Blues", "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set" and more. Also includes a 5 minute interview with Nat. CD

✨✧ King Pleasure/Annie RossKing Pleasure Sings/Annie Ross Sings ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that revolutionized the concept of jazz vocals in the 50s – thanks to famous performances by Annie Ross and King Pleasure! The tracks on the LP include Ross' early interpretations of Wardell Gray's classics "Twisted" and "Farmer's Market", and the King Pleasure set includes classics like "Red Top", "This Is Always", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and his great duet with Jon Hendricks, "Don't Get Scared". A landmark LP of jazz vocal sides, and one that no fan of vocalese should be without. LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow and black label NJ pressing, with deep groove and RVG stamp – in a nice heavy cover!)

✨✧ Four King CousinsIntroducing The Four King Cousins ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from the Four King Cousins – a sweet quartet of lovely voices peeled off of the larger King Family ensemble, singing here in a spare and syncopated groove with lots of late 60s Capitol touches! Maestro Lex De Azevedo produced, arranged, and conducted – and the album's got a really unified sound that links together harmonies from Sunshine Pop and a bit of the loping styles that were showing up in mainstream easy at the time – a sublime blend of vocals and lightly snapping rhythms that's totally outta site! All tracks are covers, but done in really wonderful versions – and tunes include the great Roger Nichols track "I Fell", plus "Love So Fine", "God Only Knows", "California Nights", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "I Wanna Be Free".

Lorez AlexandriaLorez Sings Pres – A Tribute To Lester Young ... LP
King, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A classic album from one of our favorite jazz singers ever – a set that really set a whole new standard for a generation! Even at this early stage, Lorez Alexandria was an amazingly accomplished vocalist – as you'll hear on this excellent selection of tunes from the Lester Young songbook – laidback and soulful tunes that really let her open up and do her thing! The backing on the album's nice and earthy – provided by a Chicago group that includes King Fleming piano, Charles Stepney vibes, Paul Serrano trumpet, and Vernel Fournier drums – and the overall style is perfect for Lorez' deep soulful vocals. Titles include "DB Blues", "Easy Living", "No Eyes Blues", "This Year's Kisses", and "Jumpin With Symphony Sid". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe CarrollMan With A Happy Sound ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Dizzy's longtime bebop partner cut this album of vocal tracks in the early 60s, when he was no longer recording with Diz. The record's a good batch of vocalese tracks with a strong bop edge – in the traditon of singers like Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks, and King Pleasure, and the band features a young Grant Green on guitar. The best track is the goofy "Land Of Ooh Bla Dee", but there's lots of other nice ones, like "Wha Wha Blues", "Have You Got A Penny Benny", and "New School Days". LP, Vinyl record album

Giacomo GatesEverything Is Cool ... CD
Savant, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Things are plenty cool when Giacomo Gates is around – as the singer's a real old school vocalist, with a hip sound that takes us back to the best modes of the postwar years! Gates has never fully gotten his due, but he's a contemporary singer that we'd place in a legacy that includes Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and Jon Hendricks – and, like all of those, is a vocalist who brings a hell of a lot of personality to his presentation of the material – rightly knowing that a jazz singer doesn't just swing, but finds a way to use his voice with the presence of an instrumental giant on the trumpet or tenor! Speaking of tenor, Grant Stewart blows in the small combo that backs up Giacomo – which also includes John DiMartino on piano and Tony Lombardozzi on guitar. Titles include "Everything Is Cool", "When Lovers They Lose", "Social Call", "Hazel's Hips", "Take Five", "Almost Blue", "Please Don't Bug Me", and "Who Threw The Glue". CD

Kenny RankinSilver Morning ... LP
Warner, 1974. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Kenny Rankin at the height of his powers – working in an amazing blend of styles that includes bits of folk, jazz, and bossa – all wrapped together with a really warm feel overall! The album's got a somewhat full feel – but like Kenny's best work on his debut, there's a really personal quality that shines through beautifully – a sense of intimacy even amidst some of the larger backings, one that really keeps a focus on Rankin's voice and guitar. Jimmy Haskell did the arrangements – and his talents here are worthy of note as much as Kenny's – and guests on the session include Deniece Williams and Jim Gilstrap on backing vocals, plus King Errison on percussion. Titles include Rankin's classics "Haven't We Met" and "Name Of Love", a wonderful remake of "Berimbau", and the titles "Blackbird", "People Get Ready", "Catfish", and "Penny Lane" LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneNuff Said ... LP
RCA, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great little album from Nina – mostly recorded live at the Westbury Music Fair, with a hip mix of jazz, soul, and folk that's stretched out in a slightly informal setting that always brings out the best of Nina's vocals. Titles include "The Backlash Blues", "Please Read Me", "Sunday In Savannah", "Why? (The King Of Love Is Dead)", and the nice jazzer "In The Morning". Plus, the album also includes one straight soul number – "Do What You Gotta Do", with some great arrangements by Horace Ott. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dusty SpringfieldFaithful (with bonus track) ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A never-heard third Dusty Springfield album for Atlantic Records – issued here for the first time ever, and very much in the same soulful spirit as her other records for the label! Springfield tackled Memphis and Philly soul on her previous two albums for Atlantic – and here, she hits a New York groove with producer Jeff Barry – who is equally well-suited to carry that special balance that Dusty brings to her music – that mix of British pop roots with a real understanding of the American scene – a quality that Springfield never had as strongly after these early years. Titles are a varied lot, but all come together with a really unified feel, thanks to Dusty's strengths as a performer – and tunes include "Haunted", "Someone Who Cares", "Natchez Trace", "You've Got A Friend", "All The King's Horses", and "I'll Be Faithful".

Joe Williams & Lambert, Hendricks & RossSing Along With Basie ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Near Mint- ... $2.99
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of Basie album for ABC, but handled here with a bit more of an edge, and a rougher, more freewheeling groove that's a better fit for the great Basie sound of the late 50s – a great adaptation of the groove by Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, and Annie Ross! The record's a nice sometimes-overlooked chapter in the excellent Count Basie run on Roulette – and titles include "Every Tub", "Rusty Dusty Blues", "The King", "Shorty George", and "Let Me See".
