Ames Brothers with EsquivelHello Amigos ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good ... $8.99
A very unique outing – a set that mixes the sweet harmonies of The Ames Brothers with wild backings from Esquivel! Most of the tracks are in Spanish, and have Esquivel doing a standard Latin sound, but which also approaches his own solo work in some of the more unusual moments! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

Matt DennisShe Dances Overhead ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $13.99
Dreamy vocals from Matt Dennis – a set of Rodgers & Hart numbers, performed in a sweetly swaying style that has plenty of warm touches. Unlike some of Matt's smaller combo records, this set's got larger backings from the orchestra of Harry Geller – using some light strings and woodwinds to give the set a darker sort of finish that works nicely with Matt's fragile vocals. The approach is unique for a male singer at the time – fitting, given that Matt's such a uniquely talented vocalist! Titles include "Have You Met Miss Jones", "This Funny World", "Give Her A Kiss", "Mimi", "Nobody's Heart", and "I Married An Angel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover is nice!)

Lena HorneStormy Weather ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner Lennie Hayton – and has a nice jazzy pitch, especially on tunes that feature trumpet solos from Charlie Shavers. Titles include "Summertime", "Mad About The Boy", "Tomorrow Mountain", "Ridin On The Moon", "I Wonder What Became Of Me", and "Just One Of Those Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

Eartha KittThat Bad Eartha ... LP
RCA, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Naughty early work from Eartha Kitt – recorded back way before she was a huge mass of cliches, and had enough sexy power to earn the title of "Tha Bad Eartha"! There's a slinky, erotic quality to most of this work – and slightly accented vocals too, done with a sense of class that almost reminds us of Marlena Dietrich at times, although a bit less cold overall. If there's one album that sums up Eartha's career best, this is probably it – as the set features key early recordings like "C'est Si Bon" and "I Want To Be Evil" – plus a range of other interesting material that includes "African Lullaby", "Uska Dara", "Let's Do It", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", and "Under The Bridges Of Paris". LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & BavanHavin A Ball – At The Village Gate ... LP
RCA, 1964. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Groovy groovy vocalese – featuring the group formed by Dave Lambert and Jon Hendricks after they were deserted by Annie Ross. Yolanda Bavan takes over Ross' vocals, and the trio do a lively batch of vocal tracks with some excellent interplay on the vocal lines. The set features backing by Gildo Mahones, and a few of the usual Basie-type tunes – but there's also some newer hipper stuff on the set, like "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Nothin For Nothin", "With Er Ead Tucked Underneath Er Arm", and the soulful "I Wonder What's Become Of Sally".

Abbe LaneLady In Red ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good- ... $9.99
Plenty of blushing tones here – a classic late 50s RCA set from Abbe Lane, and one that has her working with some very cool backings from the legendary Sid Ramin! Although Abbe's best known for her Latin sides with Tito Puente, Ramin does a really wonderful job too. Sid's approach is a bit quirkier, with some unusual touches in the orchestra that make for plenty of cool musical flourishes underneath Abbe's vocals – unusual backings that Lane matches with unusual phrasings that take this set way past the obvious! Titles include "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "We're Not Children", "You're Driving Me Crazy", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Femininity", "All Of Me", and "No Good To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear, partial seam splitting, some stains, and a couple of peeled marks on the front. Label has a sticker.)

A lesser-remembered singer, but one who gets some top-shelf backings here from Peter Matz! Titles include "Too Late Now", "Love-Wise", "Livin Alone", "If I Just Stand Still", "The Night We Called It A Day", and "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars". LP, Vinyl record album

Audrey MorrisBistro Ballads ... LP
X/RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $59.99
A wonderful album of sad-tinged saloon songs – sung by Chicago vocalist Audrey Morris, in the same small combo style she was using in the clubs at the time! Audrey accompanies herself on piano, backed by only the bass of Johnny Pate and drums of Charles Walton – in a lean style that really gets at the darkness of the tracks on the set. Titles include a stellar version of "Guess Who I Saw Today", plus "Blah Blah Blah", "Nobody's Heart Belongs To Me", "Sweet William", "Where Are You", "The End Of A Love Affair", and "April Fool". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is worn, with yellowed tape and some splitting on the seams, aging, some pen, and some marker.)

Helen O'ConnellGreen Eyes ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the greatest singers of the big band era comes back beautifully here in a set of vocal work from the late 50s! The style's quite different than Helen's older recordings – despite the reference of her big hit in the title – as the backings from Marion Evans bring a slightly more modern, slightly more sophisticated approach overall – not just jazzy swing, but some inventive use of guitar, strings, and other elements to give O'Connell's voice a nicely mature setting. Helen's best familiar elements still shine through nicely, and titles include "Star Eyes", "Not Mine", "Green Eyes", "Yours", "All Of Me", "Jim", "Amapola", "Time Was", and "Brazil". LP, Vinyl record album
(RCA Camden pressing.)

Helen O'ConnellHere's Helen ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good- ... $4.99
Great later work by singer Helen O'Connell – a vocalist best known for her classic early 40s recordings with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, but who sounds pretty darn great at this point in her career! The style is much different than Helen's older work – a mix of jazz and swing that comes across in light, bubbly tones, and with a fresher sound than her work in the 40s. Arrangements are by Marion Evans, and titles include "You Showed Me The Way", "I Cried For You", "Bye Bye Blues", "Who Cares", and "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Gisele MacKenzieGisele MacKenzie ... LP
Vik, 1956. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Lovely work from entertainer Gisele MacKenzie – working here in a sweet set of 50s RCA backings! Gisele's got help on the record from arrangers Sid Bass, Neal Hefti, and George Siravo – each of whom bring a slightly different feel to their tunes, and show the full range of the Gisele MacKenzie style at the time. Most numbers are jazzy, with a bit of strings – and although some numbers get a bit romantic, there's a surprising amount of swing in the set too – almost like some of Dinah Shore's work for the label. Titles include "You Are My Lucky Star", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Do You Ever Think Of Me", "These Foolish Things", "Don't Worry About Me", and "On Top Of The World Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Vik pressing with deep groove. Cover has some some marker and a light crease on front, with a bit of pen on back.)

Nina SimoneVery Rare Evening (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A very rare evening indeed – a sweet little live set recorded by Nina Simone during her soulful height at RCA – but issued years after that time, and only briefly on a small indie label! The setting here is wonderful – a small combo in the background with the great Weldon Irvine on Hammond, playing these soulful lines that are mighty lean and plenty powerful – spurred on by rhythms from Al Shackman on guitar, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums! The record also features two female backup singers on a few cuts – giving the album an almost Sweet Inspirations like touch at moments – but overall, the feel is straight hip Nina – that unique blend of soul, folk, and jazz that pushed things to the next level at the end of the 60s! Includes the great original "Revolution", plus the track "The Other Woman", "In The Morning", "Ain't Go No/I Got Life", "Save Me", and "To Love Somebody". CD
