Herb Alpert & Lani HallI Feel You ... CD
Concord, 2011. Used ... $6.99
A pairing of classic A&M talents Herb Albert & Lani Hall – covering well known numbers by Van Morrison, Peggy Lee, The Beatles and comparably lesser known gems with vibrant, genuine passion – clearly doing it for purely for the love of great music after all these years! The sunny, Latin rhythms and sunny, breezy jazzy grooves of records from the 60s & 70s is here in full force on titles that include "Moondance", "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" (which really soars), "There Will Never Be Another You", "Fever", "Here Comes The Sun", "Blackbird", "I Feel You", "'Til There Was You", "Club Esquina" and more.

Dee Dee BridgewaterJ'Ai Deux Amours ... CD
Verve/DBB Recrods, 2005. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful love letter from Dee Dee Bridgewater to her adopted home of Paris – sung in French, and with a feel that's quite different than much of her recent work! The style here wonderfully mixes together bits of jazz and more traditional chanson – in a style that recalls some of the recent work by Claude Nougaro, but which also has traces of some of Dee Dee's more intimate work as well. Marc Berthoumieux plays accordion on a number of tunes on the set, and Ira Coleman contributes some warmly soulful basslines that give the session a nice bottom grounding – especially on the mellower tunes. Titles include "Mon Homme", "Et Maintenant", "La Belle Vie", "Dansez Sur Moi", "Avec Le Temps", "Les Feuilles Mortes", and "Ne Me Quitte Pas". CD

Alice ClarkAlice Clark (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mainstream/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used Gatefold ... $16.99
There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem! Alice Clark has a rich soulful voice, with a style that sounds a bit like Esther Marrow, mixed with some of the lead vocalists in Voices Of East Harlem – a really right-on sort of sound that's totally great, and way hipper than most 70s chart soul! Arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in a touch of jazz – but again, with a much hipper feel than most of his other backings – and most of the tracks are quite obscure, well-written tunes – of the sort of material you might expect to hear sung by Gil Scott-Heron or Donny Hathaway. Titles include "Never Did I Stop Loving You", "Looking At Life", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Don't You Care", and "Hey Girl". (Soul, Vocalists) CD

Nat King ColeAfter Midnight – The Complete Sessions ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... $6.99
A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes jazz greats like Harry Edison, Willie Smith, Jual Tizol, and Jack Costanzo. Plus, if that's not enough, this fab CD adds a whopping batch of extra tracks to the original LP – for a total of 18 beauties that sound perfect on a warm summer night, long after the sun has gone down. Titles include "Caravan", "Candy", "What Is There To Say", "You're Looking At Me", and "Blame It On My Youth". Great stuff! CD

Sidsel EndresenSo I Write ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1990. Used (reissue)... $11.99
Lovely early vocals from Sidsel Endresen – a set that possibly owes a bit to the experimental European vocalists of decades before, yet which already starts to show the new directions Sidsel and her generation would explore! The tunes are spare, but wonderfully thoughtful – sung by Endresen in a mode that's nicely understated – full of feeling, yet without being overly expressive – so that she's the warmest element on the session – alongside piano from Django Bates, percussion from Jon Christensen, and trumpet and flugelhorn from Nils Petter Molvaer. Titles include "This Is The Movie", "So I Write", "Horses In Rain", "Truth", "Spring", and "Mirror Images". CD
