Ella FitzgeraldBest Of The BBC Vaults (CD/DVD) ... CD
Verve, 1965/1974/1977. Used CD & DVD ... $16.99
A lost chapter of genius from the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – music that goes beyond her Verve, Reprise, and Pablo albums of the 60s and 70s – and which is pulled from a host of rare performances recorded by the BBC! The package features both video and audio presentation of the music – although the DVD has a lot more tracks than the CD, due to its greater size – which makes for a heck of a lot of work bundled into one sweet set! Recordings are pulled from a 1965 appearance on Show Of The Week, and a special Ella Fitzgerald Sings set from the same year – as well as a televised 1977 performance of Jazz At Montreux, and a 1974 Omnibus presentation of Ella Fitzgerald at Ronnie Scotts. DVD features 34 tracks, CD features 17 – and titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "That Old Black Magic", "Gloomy Sunday", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Cheek To Cheek", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Manhatta", "Mack The Knife", and "Good Morning Heartache".

Mel TormeMel Torme & The Marty Paich Dek-Tette ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), Mid 50s. Used ... $8.99
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". CD
