Mark MurphyRah ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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".

Flip NunezMy Own Time And Space ... LP
Catalyst, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and some wear on the bottom seam.)

Nina SimoneRight On! ... LP
Roker, Early 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
We're not entirely sure when this set was recorded, but Stroud Productions put the whole thing together, and it's a hard live set that seems to be from the early 70's. Nina's voice is in fine form, and she drives the crowd with hard hitting renditions of tracks like "House Of The Rising Sun", "See Line Woman", "Gin House Blues", and "When I Was A Young Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is great overall, but has a pressing bump on one track – plays fine, but makes a small low thud for a few spins. Cover has a slightly bumped corner, and a small mark from an old sticker.)

Dusty SpringfieldLook Of Love ... LP
Philips, 1967. Very Good ... $8.99
Prime late 60s work from Dusty Springfield – an excellent American album that compiles some of her best singles from the UK! The sound is incredible – a blend of easy, soul, and tight British pop orchestrations – with arrangements handled by Pat Williams, Ivor Raymonde, Reg Guest, and Wally Stott. Dusty's voice never sounded better, and tracks include "The Look Of Love", "Give Me Time", "Come Back To Me", "Sunny", "What's It Gonna Be", "Welcome Home", and "Take Me For A Little While". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

Jane Fielding with The Kenny Drew QuintetEmbers Glow ... LP
Jazz West, 1956. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Quite a rare vocal jazz session – recorded for the short lived Jazz West label, which was one of the hippest LA imprints of the 50s! Jane Fielding's a pretty decent singer – with kind of a Chris Connor-ish style about her – but the real charm is from Kenny Drew's work as a pianist and arranger, both of which push the session past the usual sleepiness of a Bethlehem or Mode vocal jazz album from the time. Kenny's group features Joe Maini on alto, Ted Efantis on tenor, Lawrence Marable on drums, and either Leroy Vinnegar or Paul Chambers on bass. Titles include "Embers Glow", "Our Waltz", "Right Boy For Me", "Key Largo", "Make The Man Love Me", and "Round Midnight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – which we've never seen before! Vinyl is great overall – one light cosmetic mark, and very clean. Cover has a few small bits of clear tape, but no splits – and a bit of fading near spine. But a beautiful copy, really!)

✨✧ Nancy WilsonThis Mother's Daughter ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.)
