WarmthBest Of Don McCaslin's Warmth (with bonus download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
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".

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldElla At Juan-Les-Pins (Deluxe Edition) ... CD
Verve, 1964. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hugely expanded version of the classic double live album by Ella Fitzgerald – featuring a total of 48 tracks in all, recorded over 2 nights at a French jazz festival in 1964, with backing by a group that includes Roy Eldridge and Tommy Flanagan. More than half of the set appears to be previously unissued – and the whole thing's packaged in a wonderful wraparound cover, with great art and notes, and new remastering on the CD. Titles include "Day In Day Out", "Just A Sittin & A Rockin", "People", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Boy From Ipanema", "The Cricket Song", "Perdido", "Summertime", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "I Love Being Here With You", "Goody Goody", "Cutie Pants", and "Mack The Knife". Some of the cuts repeat over the course of the performance, but they're done in slightly different versions. CD

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldLive At Mister Kelly's (previously unreleased) ... CD
Verve, 1958. Used 2CD ... 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".
