Groovy Now Sound vocal group with a mix of material – some easy, some very groovy! Includes a great remake of "In the Year 2525", plus a swingin' version of "Oh, Calcutta!"

Rosemary Clooney & Perez PradoTouch Of Tabasco ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A surprisingly great little Latin set from Rosemary Clooney – one that makes us want to forgive her for all her pop takes on the genre in the early 50s! Backings here are by Perez Prado, who really brings a nice degree of "zing" to the session – kicking things up with that trademark Prado groove, providing a jagged sense of rhythm to the record – a nice contrast to Rosemary's sweeter vocals. The style's a bit like some of Tito Puente's sessions with Abbe Lane from the same stretch – but is arguably even better, because Clooney's really one heck of a great singer in this setting! Titles include "Corazon De Melon", "Like A Woman", "Mack The Knife", and "Cu Cu Ru Cu Cu Paloma". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear at the bottom.)

Matt DennisShe Dances Overhead ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $6.99
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!)

Lurlean HunterLonesome Gal ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer. Lurlean got her start at the classy south side Club DeLisa, home to Sun Ra, and a host of other Chicago talents – but by the time of this recording, she'd moved downtown, and had become a classy smoky voiced singer with a good talent for more mature material. This hard to find early session features backing by Al Nevins, and arrangements by Quincy Jones and Marion Evans. Tracks include "Brief Encounter", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Alone Together", and "A Stranger In Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with a deep groove.)

Lambert, Hendricks & BavanHavin A Ball – At The Village Gate ... LP
RCA, 1964. Very Good ... $2.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Les Double SixLes Double Six (Les Double Six/Meet Quincy Jones) ... CD
RCA/Victor/BMG (France), 1960/1962. Used ... $7.99
Great early work by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American jazz vocal groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross or The Hi Los – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the arrangements – and it also features work by Eddy Louiss, Christiane Legrand, and vocalist Ward Swingle, in the years before he took off to form the Swingle Singers! This wonderfully remastered CD package features 19 tracks from their first two albums, plus one rare additional cut – titles include "Walkin", "Rat Race", "Meet Benny Bailey", "Fascination", "Boo's Blues", "Naima", "Boplicity", "Westwood Walk", and "Early Autumn".

Audrey MorrisBistro Ballads ... LP
X/RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $24.99
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.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good ... $14.99
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar tongs and completely recasts them for Nina's own vibe – a way of shifting the sense of spirit to unlock a special Simone-like quality you never would have expected in the tunes from anyone else! Titles include a great version of "Ooh Child", plus "Just Like A Woman", "Here Comes The Sun", "New World Coming", and "My Way". And the set also features Weldon Irvine's own composition, "How Long Must I Wander?" LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & aging.)

Nina SimoneIt Is Finished ... LP
RCA, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wonderful work by Nina – the kind of record that once made purists turn up their noses, but which is now being rediscovered as a unique jazz/soul crossover album, filled with loads of nice moments! The instrumentation's pretty darn interesting – and includes sitar, harp, Spanish guitar, and other odd percussion instruments. Includes Nina's nice version of "Funkier Than a Mosquito's Tweeter", plus "I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl", "Dambala", "Obeah Woman", and "The Pusher". LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneNina Simone & Piano! ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $12.99
A strong back to basics session for Nina, one that featured her piano and vocals only, a very spare approach that was markedly different from her work a few years previously for other labels. Nina's tone on the piano is incredible – and she's working with some striking modern jazz changes that offset the folksiness of her vocals in a fantastic way, creating a sound that's a lot fuller than you'd expect! Titles include "Seems I'm Never Tired Lovin You", "Compensation", "Everyone's Gone To The Moon", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", "The Desperate Ones", "The Human Touch", and "Another Spring". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a promo stamp, a name in marker, and some light wear.)

Nina SimoneSilk & Soul ... LP
RCA, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor! Taylor's bass gives the tracks a nice "dip" that's not exactly funky, but does provide a strong kick that keeps things moving along nicely – in a way that points towards the direction Nina would take in the 70s, and which makes this album a fair bit hipper than some of her Philips work! Nina's not as over the top as on other records, but still lays it out quite hiply – and tracks include "Consummation", "Go To Hell", "Love O Love", "It Be's That Way Sometime", "Turn Me On", and "Some Say". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneVery Rare Evening (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1969/1979. Used ... $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
(Includes obi.)
