New Four King CousinsIntroducing The Four King Cousins ... CD CD format
Capitol (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

Etta JonesEtta Jones Sings (King) ... LP LP format
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $28.99
Very very early work from Etta Jones! The record has a much rawer R&B type sound than her later work – less polished than her years at Prestige, with an approach that's more in the King style used with Lorez Alexandria. Tracks are mostly solos, but sung with a nice bluesy touch – and the group is directed by Don Abney, with guitar by Bill Jennings. Titles include "White Cliffs Of Dover", "People Will Say We're In Love", "Sweethearts On Parade", "Mountain Greenery", "I Thought About You", and "When I Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Light marks, but plays great – like most old King pressings! Cover has a split top and bottom seam, and some light wear.)

New King PleasureMoody's Mood For Love ... CD CD format
United Artists/Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rarest of three albums that King Pleasure ever recorded – and pretty darn hard to find, too. The set was recorded after King's earlier sides for the Prestige and HiFi jazz labels, but it's in a very similar style, with some wonderful vocalese-ing done in Pleasure's landmark style. He's really one of the greatest jazz singers of the 20th century, and it's unfortunate that apart from the big hit fame of "Moody's Mood For Love" (recorded here once again), King never got strong recognition as a richly talented singer. A number of cuts on here are re-recordings of earlier work – like "Don't Get Scared" and "Sometimes I'm Happy" – and other tracks include "It Might As Well Be Spring" and "Old Black Magic". Plus, this CD reissue also expands the original album with a lot of bonus cuts, including some great unreleased numbers – a total of 18 tracks in all, and a treasure trove of work by King Pleasure!

Lorez AlexandriaLorez Sings Pres – A Tribute To Lester Young ... LP LP format
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
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
(Heavy early pressing – with black Federal label, and deep groove. Vinyl has light surface marks, but plays well.)

Ann BurtonAnn Burton Sings For Lovers & Other Strangers ... CD CD format
Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest, moodiest albums ever recorded by Dutch singer Ann Burton – a set that features some of the more creative arrangements she ever received on record – put together by guitarist Wim Overgaauw, and featuring organ work from both Rob Madna and Rob Franken! Burton's always great, but here she hits some of the more compelling European styles that singers like Karin Krog and Monica Zetterlund were working through in the late 60s – maybe not as openly avant at times, but quite far from the usual singer-with-trio sort of records that she previously cuts. Burton's phrasing is especially great – slow, careful, and with a kind of inventiveness that reminds us of Morgana King at her hippest – and titles include "For No One", "Sweet William", "Got To Get You Into My Life", "For All We Know", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", and "Business Goes On As Usual".

Joe CarrollMan With A Happy Sound ... LP LP format
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
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

Urszula DudziakUrszula ... LP LP format
Arista, 1975. Very Good ... $14.99
Scatting jazz vocals meet funky fusion – and the result is one of Urszula's greatest albums from the US! The set was produced by longtime partner Michal Urbaniak – with a tight and soulful approach that nicely reigns in some of the experiments of earlier years, in favor of tracks that hit a more soul-based approach to fusion – and which make us love Urszula even more than we do on other albums! Titles include "Papaya", "Mosquito Bite", "Mosquito", "Sno King", "Butterfly", "Zavinul", and "Funk Rings". LP, Vinyl record album

Kurt EllingLive In Chicago ... CD CD format
Blue Note, 2000. Used ... $3.99
We think this guy's one of the best new jazz vocalist to emerge over the past decade, and this album – his 4th for Blue Note – is far and away his best! The album was recorded live at Chicago's Green Mill nightclub – with nice small combo backing by Laurence Hobgood, Rob Amster, and Michael Raynor, plus guest horn work by Von Freeman, Eddie Johnson, and Ed Peterson. Kahil El'Zabar also plays percussion, and Jon Hendricks joins in on vocals a bit. But the best part is Elling's voice – which is a sweet mix between Mark Murphy at his best, and earlier vocalese masters, like Hendricks or Joe Lee Wilson. The album features mostly straight-ahead jazz vocalizing – with little of the hipster monologues that have ruined other Elling albums – and it includes an incredible version of Wayne Shorter's "Night Dreamer", plus the cuts "Oh My God", "Esperanto", "My Foolish Heart", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and the King Pleasure classic "Don't Get Scared". A real treat – especially if you like Cleveland Watkiss' Green Chimneys album, or any of the good Mark Murphy recordings for Muse! CD

Michael FranksMichael Franks ... LP LP format
Brut, 1973. Very Good ... $8.99
The first album from Michael Franks – and a bit different than his later hits at Warner! The trademark Frank sound is definitely in place here – well-penned tunes, sung with cool compressed vocals and a slight jazzy tinge – but there's also a bit more of a folksy feel at times, a slightly earthier feel at points that's quite nice, and which almost links him a bit to the early work of Kenny Rankin. Arrangements are by Richard Markowitz, and backings are relatively spare and sometimes jazzy – with bits of flute and sax from Tom Scott, and some especially nice bass work from Max Bennett and Carol Kaye, whose round tones really help shape Michael's vocals. Titles include "Just Like Key Largo", "The King Of Oklahoma", "Born With The Moon In Virgo", "Little Sparrow", and "When Blackbirds Fly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a bit of seam splitting, light staining on much of the front and back, and some wrinkling and peeled spots on parts of the bottom half.)

Novi SingersFive, Four, Three (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest albums ever from this incredible Polish vocal group – and that's saying a lot, because all of their albums are pretty darn hip! This set has the Novi Singers working in a freer, more open-ended mode than on some of their earlier records – hitting some territory that verges on the Karin Krog modes of the time, with lots of nice spacey touches, and going for some other numbers that have a funkier big band sort of approach – even cooler and groovier than the group's previous albums, including their classic set for MPS! Instrumentation brings in some sweet Fender Rhodes at times – with a fusion undercurrent that's subdued, and never gets in the way of the incredible harmonies – and titles include "Bongolo", "On The Road", "Five Four Three", "What Thing Is Love", "Yellow Blue & White", "Off Season", and "Dotyk". CD has great sound, notes, and four bonus tracks too – "Feel Kind Of Low", "Be My King", "Basen" and "Klown I Skrzypce". CD

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Burt Bacharach ... CD CD format
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful recording of Burt Bacharach classics – done by Dutch singer Rita Reys, in a setting that makes the album one of her best from the 70s! Rita's got this airy, open style of vocalizing – a bit like Morgana King, but not as heavily handed – and that style really turns out to be perfect for Burt's music – as Reys kind of flows, steps, and drifts over the tunes with effortless ease – at a level that's maybe even better that Dionne Warwick's famous interpretations of the material. Arrangements by Rogier Van Otterloo also match the mode just right – full orchestrations, but always very light – kind of pillowy, right underneath Rita's voice – gently gliding through tunes that include "Windows Of The World", "This Girl's In Love With You", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "A House Is Not A Home", "One Less Bell To Answer", and "Paper Mache".

Titles include "Cocktails For Two", "The Song Is You", "I Can't Get Started", "S'Posin", "I Never Knew", and "All The Way". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bob DoroughDevil May Care ... CD CD format
Bethlehem/Avenue, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album as incredible as its bulls-eye cover – the first record ever from a young Bob Dorough – and easily one of his most swinging sessions! The style here is a bit straighter jazz than on some of Bob's later work – vocalese inspired by Jon Hendricks, King Pleasure, Eddie Jefferson, and others – recorded with a small combo that includes Jack Hitchcock on vibes, Warren Fitzgerald on trumpet, Jerry Segal on drums, and Bob's longtime partner Bill Takas on bass. Many of the tunes are vocalized versions of bop numbers – done with a nicely quirky style that shows that the mad Dorough touch was already in place during these early years – on titles that include "It Could Happen To You", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Baltimore Oriole", "Yardbird Suite", "Devil May Care", and "Ow" – plus his great original "You're The Dangerous Type"!
