✨✧ Nat King ColeLive At The Circle Room ... CD
Capitol, 1947. Used ... $12.99
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

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

King PleasureMoody's Mood For Love ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $2.99
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!

✨✧ Nat King ColeThose Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaLorez Sings Pres – A Tribute To Lester Young ... LP
King, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(80s pressing.)

Lorez AlexandriaFor Swingers Only ... LP
Argo, 1963. Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Lorez Alexandria – an ultra-hip singer who recorded for Impulse and King, but who sounds especially wonderful on this rare date for Chess Records! The album's got a groove that definitely lives up to its title – a jazzy, bouncy sort of rhythm that's definitely "for swingers only", and which is a nice contrast to overdone torch or standard jazz vocal modes. Alexandria's singing is completely sublime – quite fluid, yet with a soulful depth that's really amazing – and her backing combo is equally hip – a group led by John Young on piano, and also featuring George Eskirdge on guitar, Jimmy Garrison on bass, Phil Thomas on drums, and Ronald Wilson on flute and tenor – an obscure player whose reed work really makes the album sparkle! The song choices are great too – a mix of some under-recorded gems and a few blue-toned classics – all redone amazingly by Lorez with a sound that's quite unique. Titles include her classic Argo reading of "Baltimore Oriole", which begins with an amazing drum/bass passage that's worth the price of the album alone – and other tracks include "The End Of A Love Affair", "Baltimore Oriole", "All Or Nothing At All", "Mother Earth", "Love Look Away", and "Traveling Down A Lonely Road".

✨✧ Joe CarrollMan With A Happy Sound ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
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

Bob DoroughYardbird Suite (aka Devil May Care) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A mid 70s repackaging of one of the best vocal jazz albums that Bethlehem ever produced, and a landmark recording in the vocalese tradition! 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"!

Georgie FameTwo Faces Of Fame ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99
The two faces of Fame are live and studio – as each side of the album was recorded in each mode! Side one features the Brit jazz vocalist swinging in a live set recorded in early 1967 – done with lots of Hammond organ in the lineup, and an overall style that picks up a lot from Ray Charles and Mose Allison, but filters it through the groovier beat group styles of 60s London. Side two is even better, and features Georgie singing in more of a jazz-based mode – with lineups that feature some striking players that include Tony Oxley, Peter King, Gordon Beck, and Tubby Hayes. Tracks include a wonderful take on Mongo Santamaria's "El Pussycat", plus the tunes "Do It The Hard Way", "It Could Happen To You", "C'Est La Vie", "River's Invitation", "Greenback Dollar Bill", and "Keep Your Big Mouth Shut".

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

Novi SingersFive, Four, Three (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Joe Williams & Lambert, Hendricks & RossSing Along With Basie ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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! Titles include "Every Tub", "Rusty Dusty Blues", "The King", "Shorty George", and "Let Me See". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original multicolor bar label pressing with deep groove – heavy, and very nice!)
