WarmthBest Of Don McCaslin's Warmth (with bonus download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Wonderful work from a very unique combo – one that features lots of vibes mixed with Fender Rhodes and piano – plus these great offbeat vocals that have a very personal feel! Both the lyrics and phrasing remind us a bit of the sorts of singing you'd find on some of Gary McFarland's coolest albums – but done in more of a 70s style, with some of the wit that we love from Bob Dorough – and both of these bigger-name artists would be a great comparison for the uniquely hip style that Don McCaslin's going for in his music! The set's the first to bring together rare tracks from the small label releases of the Warmth group – really cool Cali sounds that are as soulful as they are mellow – and completely charming all the way through. Titles include "Praise Poems", "Afro Blue", "Simon Rodia's Song", "Viva Marquez", "The Invisible Summer", "Lazy Afternoon", and "The World Through Alice's Hair".

✨✧ Mel TormeMel Torme & The Marty Paich Dek-Tette ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible album from Mel Torme – easily his best set ever, and a record that helped raise the bar for all other singers back in the 50s! A key part of the success of the set is the presence of Marty Paich as an arranger – as Marty swings the whole thing with a fluid groove that's really amazing, and which is a style that hadn't ever been done on record this well before. The group is filled with hip west coast players like Pete Candoli, Jack Montrose, Bob Cooper, and Bud Shank – all of whom really soar together, and elevate Mel's vocals from the older velvet fog mode, into a leaner, hipper style that's really tremendous! Titles include "The Blues", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Lulu's Back In Town", "The Carioca", "Sing For Your Supper", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
