✨✧ WarmthBest Of Don McCaslin's Warmth (with bonus download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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". (Jazz, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMusic To Watch Girls By ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1960s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Wonderful 60s pop! This set was a groundbreaking hit in the UK – and it compiles 38 very groovy tunes pulled from the catalog of Sony/Columbia's easy listening vaults from the 60s, plus a pretty strong handful from other major labels at the same time. Both labels are filled to the brim with great tunes – and the set's a stunning batch of tracks you'll more than recognize, all nicely sorted out with a good level of variety, and some very excellent packaging! Titles include "The Good Life" by Tony Bennett, "That's Amore" by Dean Martin, "Swingin Safari" by Bert Kaempfert, "Move Over Darling" by Doris Day, "Sugar Town" by Nancy Sinatra, "Almost Like Being In Love" by Vic Damone, "Beyond The Sea" by Bobby Darin, "Moon River" by Danny Williams, "The Lady Is A Tramp" by Buddy Greco, "She" by Peter Skellern, "Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton, "Spanish Eyes" by Al Martino, "Joanna" by Scott Walker, and "Valley Of The Dolls" by Dionne Warwick. Also includes Andy Williams' great version of "Music To Watch Girls By"! CD

✨✧ Richard HarrisProphet – By Kahil Gibran ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Mel TormeMel Torme & The Marty Paich Dek-Tette ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 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". CD
