Tony ChristieNow's The Time! ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2011. Used ... $2.99
Groovy fun from Tony Christie – brassy, punchy and endearing 60s style pomp from a legendary figure who's back in his comfort zone! In some ways, it sounds like it could have made in '67, but with something of a post millennial glow that doesn't detract one ounce of the old school charm. It's really about the charm, and at 67-years-old, Tony still has that in full glory. Titles include "Now's The Time!", "Money Spider", "7 Hills" feat Roisin Murphy, "Nobody In The World", "Steal The Sun", "Longoing For You Baby", "Get Christie", "Too Much Of The Sun", "Key Of You", "I Thank You", "Something Better".

June ChristySomething Cool (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $6.99
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. 11 tracks total. CD

Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... $2.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

Shirley HornTravelin' Light ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... $14.99
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of the 60s, and probably the greatest album ever by Shirley Horn! The session's got a beautiful lively sound, with extremely interesting arrangements by Johnny Pate, and a flute/piano/guitar sound that works perfectly with Shirley's lovely voice. The material is a great mix of lesser-known songs, sung with a maturity and honesty that will make your heart break. We love this one way better than any of Shirley's recent albums, and we can't recommend it highly enough! Titles include "Sunday In New York", "Yes, I Know When I've Had It", "Someone You've Loved", "I Could Have Told You", "Travelin Light", and "Don't Be On The Outside". CD

Etta JonesMy Mother's Eyes ... CD
32 Jazz, 1977. Used ... $6.99
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

Peggy LeeBasin Street East Proudly Presents Peggy Lee (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol, 1961. Used ... $6.99
Peggy Lee's at Basin Street, but the set's an upbeat, swinging date that's right up there with her studio work for Capitol in the 60s! The album's billed as an "after hours" performance – and it's definitely got the relaxed feel to live up to that promise – a feel that's more small combo jazzy than other Lee work of the period, although it's still got that upbeat punch we love from the Capitol years. The group is directed by Joe Harnell, who also plays piano – and other members include Bob Donovan on flute, Willie Thomas and Phil Sunkel on trumpets, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Chino Pozo on congas and bongos. Titles inlcude "I Got A Man", "The Second Time Around", "Fever", "Moments Like This", "Day In Day Out", and "Them There Eyes". CD also features a bonus track – "Call Me Darling". CD

✨✧ June ChristySomething Cool (with bonus tracks!) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... Just Sold Out!
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD
(Out of print version – with long-deleted bonus tracks!)
