Mark MurphyStolen Moments ... LP
Muse, 1978. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of his best for Muse, with a beautiful set of jazzy vocal grooves that includes his reading of "Stolen Moments" (later made famous by United Future Organization), plus "D.C. Farewell" and an excellent version of "Waters of March". Warm and breezy, with that perfect style that Murphy had for a brief while in the 70s – and which has continued to be such a huge influence on groovers today! LP, Vinyl record album

Mark MurphySwingin Singin Affair ... LP
Fontana, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A rare British session from vocalist Mark Murphy – and one of his grooviest albums of the 60s! Mark's working here with great backings from the orchestras of Tubby Hayes, John Dankworth, and Les Reed – all of whom give Murphy some of his hippest grooves to date, very much in the mode of some of his work on the Midnight Mood album cut for MPS during the same overseas 60s stretch. And as with that one, there's a nice selection of tunes that goes way past the usual – and which shows off the widest range of Murphy's groovy vocal talents – titles that include "Ballyhoo", "Iceberg", "Stablemates", "She Loves You", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", "From Time To Time", and "The Best Is Yet To Come". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Billy CWhere Have You Been Billy Boy – The Warm Voice Of Billy C ... LP
Strata East, 1976. Very Good+ ... $58.99
A strange one for Strata East, but in a way, still very much in keeping with the label's tradition. Billy C is a smooth-voiced, deep-toned vocalist – in the tradition of jazz singers like Johnny Hartman or Grady Tate – and his sensitive vocals here are backed by a group that includes some of the greatest players on the label – Stanley Cowll on piano, George Coleman on tenor, Charles Davis on baritone, and Bill Lee on bass. Bill Lee (Spike's dad!) did all the arrangements – that's him on the front cover – and the tracks include "We'll Remember Those Years", "No Carol", "Beware My Heart", and a very crazy version of "Both Sides Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light mark from an old sticker in one spot.)

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Come On Home To Me". Cover is in nice shape.)

Mercury (Japan), Mid 40s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great Japanese-only collection – featuring work from Billy Eckstine's famous band of the mid 40s, often called the birthplace of bop – with players who include Budd Johnson and Sonny Stitt on alto, Dexter Gordon and Gene Ammons on tenor, Leon Parker on baritone sax, Fats Navarro and Miles Davis on trumpet, and Art Blakey on drums!

✨✧ Marianne FaithfullMarianne Faithfull ... LP
London, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second album from one of the most unique voices in British music in the 60s – a really sublime little set that moves beyond familiar folk, rock, and pop – to put Marianne Faithfull in a mighty special place that's all her own! Right from the very first note of her voice, Marianne's out to sound way different than the rest – with a darkness that almost echoes the solo work of Nico, but a warmer sound that still holds on to some of the previous Brit mode that inform the album. Arrangements are totally great – penned by David Whittaker, Mike Leander, and Jon Mark – conducted by Leander with an eerie sound that's really amazing. Titles include "Come & Stay With Me", "As Tears Go By", "Down Town", "I'm A Loser", "What Have I Done Wrong", "They Never Will Leave You", and "He'll Come Back To Me". (Rock, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Sarah VaughanO Som Brazileiro De Sarah Vaughan (aka I Love Brazil) ... LP
Pablo/RCA (Brazil), 1977. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of a number of excellent albums of Brazilian jazz cut by Sarah Vaughan – a surprisingly great move for the singer, whose style had begun to wear thin by the mid 70s. The record's got a pretty faithful sound, and the musicians on the set include Jobim on piano, plus Mauricio Einhorn, Nelson Angelo, and Helio Delmiro – all Brazilian greats in their own right. Danilo Caymmi and Milton Nascimento join in on vocals, and tracks include "The Day It Rained", I Live To Love You", "Roses & Roses", "Bridges", "A Little Tear", and "Courage". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brazilian pressing on RCA. Cover has some edge wear and a mark from sticker removal.)
