Mark MurphyRah ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Good+ ... $3.99
Great early work by Mark Murphy – a set that's different than the cool breeziness of his 70s work, and done with an approach that's a lot hipper than most of his 60s contemporaries! Ernie Wilkins handles the arrangements, and there's a rollicking soul jazz groove here that's a bit unusual for Murphy – but which makes for a nice change from his earlier work for Decca or Capitol. As with most of Mark's records, the tunes are very well-chosen, and go way past the obvious – a set list that includes Fran Landesman's great "Stoppin The Clock", Jon Hendricks' lyrics to Horace Silver's "Doodlin", Annie Ross' famous vocalese version of "Twisted", and hip takes on jazz standards "Green Dolphin Street", "Milestones", and "Out Of This World".

✨✧ Mark MurphyHip Parade ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real turning point in the career of singer Mark Murphy – a great session for Capitol from 1960, done with creative arrangements from Bill Holman, and a sound that opens up strongly from Murphy's Decca years! In a way, the record is one of the first times that Murphy really got to do what he wanted to on record – and working with Holman, he really opens up in the inventive, expressive modes that would mark the Murphy sound of later years – a style that was light years ahead of other male singers in jazz! Some tracks have small combo backings, others have big band, and a few feature support from a larger chorus – but throughout the entire set it's clear that Mark's not just a run of the mill pop singer on Capitol, and can sing here with a level of jazz that few others on the label ever matched! Titles include "Firefly", "Lonesome Town", "Catch A Falling Star", "All The Way", "Venus", "Send For Me", and "Personality". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear and clear tape along the seams.)

Nancy WilsonThis Mother's Daughter ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Sealed ... $5.99
One of Nancy Wilson's hippest albums from the 70s – a great record of smooth mellow tracks produced by Eugene McDaniels, handled with some nice jazzy flourishes, and a warm soulful sound that brings out the best in Nancy's vocals! If you've dug her vocals on the Life, Love, & Harmony album, you'll find that this one's pretty similar – with some great easily grooving tunes that well mark her move into modern soul – and a sophistication that goes way beyond her work of the 60s! Titles include "China", "I Don't Want A Sometimes Man", "From You To Me To You", "Stay Tuned", "When We Were One", and "Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Peggy Lee & George ShearingBeauty And The Beat (1959 DJ Convention Souvenir) ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very nice small combo album from Peggy Lee – singing here with live backings by the George Shearing Quintet, in a style that's very different from a lot of her other work for Capitol! The set's got a slight Latin feel, thanks to George's mix of percussion, vibes, piano, and guitar – and Peggy's never sounded better, stepping out strongly on tunes that include "Do I Love You", "Get Out Of Town", "There'll Be Another Spring", and "Mambo In Miami". A very unusual version of the record – in a special box, with the cover art on the inside – a promo for the 1959 DJ Convention! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice box – with a photo of Peggy Lee, another of George Shearing, a Capitol promo sheet, and a "letter" from the pair! Box is very nice, but has a small mark from an old sticker in one corner.)

✨✧ Flip NunezMy Own Time And Space ... LP
Catalyst, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm set of groovers from Flip Nunez – a San Francisco-based pianist with a great Latin tinge, working here in a fantastic setting that makes for one of his greatest recordings! The album was recorded in SF in 1976, and it's got the laidback groove of some of the best sides coming from the area at the time – a sweet blend of fusion, Latin, and modal jazz grooving. Nunez plays electric piano, clavinet, piano, and organ – and a few tracks feature his vocals, which have a confident style that's somewhere between Mark Murphy and Tony Benett (in his jazzier mode.) The centerpiece of the album is a long mellow-grooving version of "See You Later", a tune that Flip wrote, and which has been covered on a number of other jazz dance classics over the years – but the album's filled with great tunes, like "D'ju Like Me", "This Time For Good", "Why Did You Come Into My Life", and "Mr Cool", a sweet little funky tune!
