Richard Harris/Arif MardenProphet – By Kahil Gibran ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
A spoken word classic – Richard Harris' reading of Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet – all set to some sublime backings from Arif Mardin! Harris has an even more pointed style of pronunciation than on some of his previous records on ABC – less of a shining tramp than the British actor who first rose to fame – adding a colonialist twist to Gibran's words, which are then transformed into something else entirely by Mardin's backings. Music features keyboards from Bob James and Pat Rebillot, woodwinds from Phil Bodner, and some cool percussion too – making the set much more of a 70s groovy effort than you might expect – so much so, that Harris' vocals almost sound out of place (any chance of just hearing the instrumental tapes from the session?) Titles include "On Love", "On Marriage", "On Crime & Punishment", "The Farewell", and "On Death". (Comedy/Spoken, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some marks from sticker removal.)

Mark MurphyStart Of Something ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Quite possibly the greatest of Mark Murphy's early albums for Capitol – a heavily swinging set that features some great arrangements from Bill Holman, and Mark's classic version of the title tune – which he'd reprise nicely in years to come! The album's got Murphy in great west coast jazz territory – working with players who include Bill Holman and Richie Kamuca on tenors, Conte Candoli and Stu Williamson on trumpets, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bobby Gibbons on guitar, and Mel Lewis on drums – plus a bit of extra conga on half of the set! Side one features great readings of "This Could Be The Start Of Something", "Just In Time", "Falling In Love With Love", and "The Lady Is A Tramp" – and side two features a swinging medley of tracks that include "Lucky In Love", "Cheek To Cheek", "That Old Black Magic", and "For Me & My Gal". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later PAUSA pressing in a black & white cover. Cover has a name in marker. Labels have some marker.)

VariousLive From The Cotton Club (2CD set with book) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1930s. Used ... $49.99
Rare live material by Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, and others – packaged with a superb hardcover book! The package is way more than just a 2CD set – as it's more of an historical object – with pages of images from the club, and rare material that includes a 1929 broadcast, a German broadcast from 1931, plus unissued takes in 1937 by The Tramp Band too.

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldLive At Mister Kelly's (previously unreleased) ... CD
Verve, 1958. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real treasure from Ella Fitzgerald – a huge batch of previously unreleased live recordings from the 50s, all done at the legendary Chicago nightclub Mister Kelly's! However, the set's noteworthy not just because it's rare, but also because it offers Ella up in a relaxed, unfettered setting – a nice contrast to the smoother sound of the Verve studio albums of the time – or some of the more hyped-up festival appearances too – and instead, there's a personal, intimate sound here that's quite wonderful throughout, and which has really re-ignited our love of Ella's music! The sound quality is great – no dodgy crowd recording here – and the backing is by a trio that includes Lou Levy on piano, Max Bennett on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums. 2CD set is divided up into a "main show" and a "late show" – and titles include "Perdido", "Your Red Wagon", "I'm Glad There Is You", "Bewitched", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Joe Williams Blues", "Witchcraft", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Exactly Like You", "S'Wonderful", and "My Funny Valentine".
