ChordettesNever On Sunday ... LP
Cadence, 1962. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Cool 60s work from The Chordettes – tracks that sound a fair bit different than their earliest hits, with some relatively full arrangements that really do wonderful things with the vocals! The girls' core harmonies are still wonderfully in place, but the backings add in some soundtrack-styled strings that often have a peppy 60s crossover feel – lush, but never too much so, and always with a nicely lean approach on the rhythms that keeps even some of the slower songs moving. The choice of tunes is pretty fresh stuff for the group to sing – and titles include "Exodus", "Tommy", "Never On Sunday", "Que Sera Sera", "Fascination", and "Wooden Heart". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

Nat King ColeAfter Midnight ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Very Good ... $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. Filled with loads of great tracks that sound perfect on a warm summer night, long after the sun has gone down – including "Caravan", "Just You, Just Me", "The Lonely One", "You're Looking At Me", and "Blame It On My Youth". Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album
(Abridged Capitol/EMI pressing. Cover has some pen on back.)

Chris ConnorWitchcraft ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A lovely side by Chris Connor for Atlantic, recorded not too long after her stint at Bethlehem – where she'd perfected an icy cool style of singing that's still to be matched to this day! The album features larger arrangements by Richard Wess – but still has a light jazzy feel, intimate in approach, despite the larger musical backings. Chris' voice is at once personal and removed – a razor's edge of emotion, repressing some impulses, and opening up surprisingly at other moments. Titles include "Skyscraper Blues", "The Lady Sings The Blues", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Just In Time", "Baltimore Oriole", and "How Little We Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue and green label pressing, in a heavy glossy cover.)

Jamie Cullum with Nostalgia 77Interlude ... LP
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 24.99
The hippest, coolest work we've ever heard from Jamie Cullum – a wonderful collaboration with Nostalgia 77, who bring a lot of deeper jazz tones back to Cullum's music! The members of the group shift from track to track, but really give the whole thing a soulful vibe that's been missing from some of Jamie's work in the past – a move back to his roots in jazz, with a sensibility that almost even steps farther back – and links him to hip 60s British talents like Georgie Fame or Zoot Money. Cullum's voice is wonderful, as always – but it's especially great to hear it in a setting like this, which is quite far from some of the more poppy directions he'd been heading on previous records. Titles include "The Seer's Tower", "Walkin", "Don't You Know", "Interlude", "Lovesick Blues", "Come & Get Me", "Out Of This World", "Make Someone Happy", "Good Morning Heartache", "Sack O Woe", and a version of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" done with Gregory Porter.

Blossom DearieWinchester In Apple Blossom Time ... LP
Blossom Enterprises, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Wonderful later work by Blossom Dearie – a 2LP set that's filled with wonderful compositions that rank with some of her best tunes! The style of the album is subtle – mostly just spare piano backing behind Blossom's vocals – but the tunes are opened up with that magical vocal approach that's always made Blossom one of the most distinct singers of her time. Original tunes include "Love Is An Elusive Celebration", "Winchester In Apple Blossom Time", "Touch The Hand Of Love", "Sunday Afternoon", and "Sweet Surprise" – and contains versions of "Sammy", "It Amazes Me", "A Wonderful Guy", "Jazz Musician", and "The Wheelers & Dealers".

Georgie FameWhole World's Shaking – Ground Breaking Albums 1963 to 1966 (Rhythm & Blues At/At Last/Sweet Things/Sound Venture) (4LP set) ... LP
Fontana/Universal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 4LP ... $109.99
Four incredible albums from the young Georgie Fame – served up here in one tremendous package – with all oiriginal artwork, nice heavy vinyl, and even new remastering from the original tapes! First up is Rhythm & Blues At The Flamingo – blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of a American small organ combo, especially the early 60s variety that often played equal parts soul jazz and R&B! Georgie's on the Hammond, and also sings with a rough-edged style that's plenty soulful, and incredibly appealing – a mode that oozes charisma, but never sounds fake or forced. Titles include "Do The Dog", "Eso Beso", "Work Song", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Shop Around", "Humpty Dumpty", and "You Can't Sit Down". Fame At Last is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and R&B – all filtered through a mod sort of London freshness, as early proof that the city could always take some great things from our own musical roots, and feed it back to us with a whole new flavor! Georgie's no copycat here, though – and the sound is instantly Fame-like – a style that's really not the sort that any Americans were doing at the time, and certainly never this well. Hard-burning Hammond colors most of the tunes here – played with a tightly vamping quality – but it's Georgie's charmingly crackling vocals that really win us over! Titles include "Gimme That Wine", "Pink Champagne", "Monkeying Around", "Green Onions", "Let The Sunshine In", "Get On The Right Track Baby", "I'm In The Mood For Love", and "I Love The Life I Live". Sweet Things is a definite sweet thing from Georgie Fame – a record that has him filling in his sound even more than before, with tremendously soulful results! The backings here are bigger than before – a bit tooled in an American soul mode, but still with that beautifully raspy Georgie Fame touch – lots of jazzy inflections on the vocals, and a way of handling a tune, even a familiar one, and really working it on his own level. Hammond still fills in most of the tunes, but other instrumentation includes some nice African percussion from Speedy Acquaye, saxes from Pete Coe, and some nice bold drums from John Mitchell. These come out to the forefront on the classic funky tune "Music Talk" – and still sound great on other numbers that include "The World Is Round", "Last Night", "Dr Kitch", "My Girl", "Ride Your Pony", and "Sweet Thing". Sound Venture is one of the jazziest early albums from Georgie Fame – a set that has him singing with the big band of Harry South, at a level that's a lot more complicated than some of his other work with The Blue Flames! The style here still has that mod 60s London feel, but it also has some deeper inflections as well – modes borrowed a bit from Jon Hendricks or Mose Allison, yet served up with even greater complexity – at a level that really points towards the tremendous growth Fame would unleash over the next few years. Members of the group include Tubby Hayes, Ronnie Scott, Tony Coe, Dick Morrisey, Kenny Wheeler, and many other key Brit jazz figures of the time – and titles include "Three Blind Mice", "Dawn Yawn", "Feed Me", "Lovey Dovey", "Lil Darlin", "Lil Pony", "I Am Missing You", and "Many Happy Returns".

One of their groovy Sunshine Pop albums of the 60s – kind of a "give back" to the Beach Boys generation! Titles include "Happy Together", "Never My Love", "Homeward Bound", "Kites", and sublime versions of "California My Way" and "Byrd Avenue". LP, Vinyl record album

Free DesignHeaven/Earth ... LP
Project 3, 1969. Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
An incredible record from The Free Design – the group's third record, and a real departure from the first two! The group are almost (if possible) hipper, with a more sophisticated approach to their material – gentler grooving, in a way that's really wonderful. The album's filled with some great originals – including "Dorian Benediction", "2002 – A Hit Song", "My Very Own Angel", "Girls Alone" – plus a great cover of "If I Were A Carpenter", and the tracks "Hurry Sundown" and "Where Do I Go".

Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Impulse (Germany), 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
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".

Billie HolidayBillie Holiday – The Golden Years 1933-1941 (3LP set) ... LP
Columbia, 1930s. Near Mint- 3LPs ... $16.99
An excellent collection of Billie's 30s work for Columbia Records – featuring 3LPs worth of material, represented with much better sound than the original 78 rpm release of the songs. Billie's in the company of a host of great jazzmen – including Count Basie, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Shavers, Artie Shaw, Cozy Cole, Roy Eldridge, Red Allen, and countless others. 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Your Mother's Son In Law", "Riffin The Scotch", "Them There Eyes", "Without Your Love", "Swing Brother Swing", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "You Go To My Head", "Long Gone Blues", "I Can't Get Started", "All Of Me", "God Bless The Child", and "Gloomy Sunday".

Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy (10 inch LP) ... LP
Storyville, 1955. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing in that hip groovy style that we've always loved so much. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would become one of their greatest writers – on the track "Season In The Sun" – plus a number of great tunes by Roy, like "Slowly" and "Hook Line And Snare", plus tunes like "Cheerful Little Earful", "Mountain Greenery", and "Yesterdays".

Greetje KauffeldYoung Girl Sunday Jazz ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... $22.99
A range of wonderful work from this excellent European singer – mostly pulled from obscure archives belonging to jazz musicians and frequent musical partners in the 60s – brought together here to make a full length that's every bit as great as her other albums! Almost all the cuts have tight, sharp-edged small combo backing – with players who include Tony Vos on alto, Rolf Kuhn on clarinet, Wolfgang Schluter on vibes, Ingfried Hoffman on Hammond, and Jan Huydts on piano – all top-shelf European players of the time, who really hit the hip, surprisingly soulful vocal sound that Greetje's going for on these tracks! Many tunes are familiar, but the arrangements are mighty fresh – in the best sort of 60s-styled way – and titles include "Who Knows Why", "You & I", "My Kinda World", "Deed I Do", "Orange Coloured Sky", "Saturday Night", "Fever", "Almost Like Being In Love", and a great version of the Dusko Goykovich tune "Handful Of Soul".

Janet LawsonJanet Lawson Quintet (aka Dreams Can Be) ... LP
Inner City, 1983. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Very hip vocal work from singer Janet Lawson – an under-discovered vocalist with a very groovy sound! Janet's got a soaring, breezy feel that's a bit like some of the best Bay Area or European work from a few years before – inflected with some Brazilian influences, but also delivered with an American approach overall – all in a mix of sung and scatted vocals! There's a vibe here that's a bit like Monica Linges or Rimona Francis, but perhaps even freer and harder grooving, as Janet never stops for a ballad, and likes to riff away on the hippest work she can find. This long out of print set features vocal versions of "Better Get It In Your Soul" and "Hot House" – plus the originals "Dreams Can Be" and "Break Free" – all supported by acoustic small combo instrumentation, with some great work on sax and flute from Roger Rosenberg.

Specialty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Spicy Songs For Cool Knights – recorded in the mid 50s, with an approach that's a bit straighter than some of Lee's psychoanalytic parody records – almost folksy in its choice of some of the traditional tunes included, especially in the way they're played by Lee on acoustic guitar alongside her vocals. There's a few originals by Katie, too – which make for a bit more whimsy – and titles include "Poor Miss Bailey", "The House Of The Rising Sun", "My Mother Chose My Husband", and more.

Nancy AmesSpiced With Brasil ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Bossa with a great American twist! Nancy Ames was an American pop singer of the 60s – one who did mostly folksy tunes with a light California feel, and who here is coming up with some great bossa nova numbers, set to arrangements by Stu Phillips! The package has all the sunniness of a summer LA afternoon at the beach – with the driving groove of a pop bossa session from Rio. The album's perennial favorite is Nancy's remake of "Mas Que Nada" (done here as "Pow Pow Pow") – but there's loads of other wonderful numbers, and the whole album's great! Titles include "Laia La Daia", "Love's Like Wine", "So Nice", and "A Man & A Woman". As the song says – Pow Pow Pow! Her greatest LP by a mile, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood (with bonus track) ... LP
MGM/Light In The Attic, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Lee Hazlewood's world is always a very special one for us – filled with great songs, amazing production, and those icy vocals that Lee sang unlike anyone else! This album may be one of Hazlewood's greatest from the 60s – at least among his US recordings – and it's a near-perfect session with arrangements from Billy Strange, often with a slight bit of sinister guitar in the mix, but also some sublime strings too – used sparely and carefully to create a sense of deepening darkness! Lee's at his sharpest, wittiest here – singing some of his most sophisticated songs to date, but also throwing in a few nods towards his earlier pop productions. Titles include "Not The Lovin Kind", "For One Moment", "Sand", "Your Sweet Love", "My Autumn's Done Come", "I Move Around", "So Long Babe", "Bugles In The Afternoon", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", and Lee's wonderful parody remake of "These Boots Are Made For Walking". Features a bonus track sung with Suzi Jane Hokum – "Summer Wine". LP, Vinyl record album
