Herb Alpert & Lani HallI Feel You ... CD
Concord, 2011. Used ... $4.99
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 ... $2.99
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

Nat King ColeAfter Midnight – The Complete Sessions ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Natalie ColeUnforgettable With Love ... CD
Elektra, 1991. Used ... $0.99
A much better record than we want to admit, with Natalie moving towards jazzy numbers and standards, for a blockbuster Grammy winning effort. Her voice stands up well to the mainstream polish, and even the creepy "duet" with her father is enjoyable. 22 tracks in all, including "The Very Thought Of You", "Paper Moon", "Mona Lisa", 'This Can't Be Love", "Lush Life", "That Sunday That Summer", "Avalon", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Nature Boy", "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Thous Swell" and "Unforgettable".

Sidsel EndresenSo I Write ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1990. Used (reissue)... $6.99
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

✨✧ Etta JonesMy Mother's Eyes ... CD
32 Jazz, 1977. Used ... $4.99
Nothing fancy, but a nice back to basics session from Etta – recorded with backing by a small combo that includes husband Houston Person, and done in the laidback style that always seems to bring out the best in her singing. Other players include Idris Muhammad, Jimmy Ponder, and Sonny Phillips – and tracks include "The Way You Look Tonight", "Be My Love", "Don't Misunderstand", and "Gloomy Sunday". CD

Jeanne Lee & Ran BlakeNewest Sound Around ... CD
RCA/BMG (France), 1961. Used ... $9.99
An eerie album of modern jazz vocals – featuring the haunting voice of Jeanne Lee with the dark piano of Ran Blake. Most tracks feature only the two of them in duet – but a few feature Lee solo, and a few others have George Duvivier backing the pair up on bass. We like this stuff a lot better than much of Lee's later work – as it's still very much in a traditional jazz vocal realm, just pushed off-kilter a few notches or two, and painted with more abstract colors than usual. Lee's voice is nicely restrained, and has a dark Abbey Lincoln quality to it at the best moments. Titles include "Church On Russel Street", "Laura", "Love Isn't Everything", "Lover Man", "Season In The Sun", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". Plus, this CD reissue features 4 bonus cuts – including "Straight Ahead", "Vanguard", and "Left Alone". CD
