Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $11.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Come On Home To Me". Cover is in nice shape.)

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Newport ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99
A key early moment for Nina Simone – recorded live at Newport in 1960, at a time when the festival was one of the most important showcases for groundbreaking jazz – and a perfect setting for Nina to really let loose in that righteous style that would fuel her career during the 60s! Given that Simone could sometimes be turned out of the cabaret crowd with her politics, the warm welcome she gets at Newport is very fitting support – and you can really hear it in the ay she approaches the material! The set's a hip batch of tunes that includes a few standards like "Trouble In Mind" and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", all done with the righteous Simone flair – plus other lesser-known tracks like "Flo Me La" and "Nina's Blues", opened up in the setting with some nice small combo backing!

✨✧ Lou RawlsBlack & Blue/Tobacco Road ... CD
Capitol, 1962/1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 early Capitol classics by Lou Rawls – back to back on one CD, and perfectly paired throughout! Black and Blues is quite possibly the first truly great Lou Rawls album for Capitol – an all-out swinging jazz session done with arrangements by Onzy Matthews, in a mode that firmly helped put the Lou Rawls sound on the map! The tracks are mostly older numbers from a long lineage of blues and R&B – but with hipper 60s touches by Matthews in the backings, Lou really swings the work into a whole new territory – moving older, clunky compositions into more adult, more mature modes that aren't nearly as sad or downtrodden as their roots! Titles include "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water", "Roll Em Pete", "Kansas City", "World Of Trouble", "Trouble In Mind", "Strange Fruit", and "Six Cold Feet Of Ground". Tobacco Road was a real breakthrough for Lou – a set that again paired him with arranger Onzy Matthews, and which even more deeply explored the unique space between jazz, soul, and the blues that became Rawls' prime territory back in the 60s! Matthews' backings are hip and jazzy throughout – filled with bold horn touches from players that include Lou Blackburn, Curtis Amy, Sonny Criss, and even Horace Tapscott – who's playing trombone here instead of his more familiar piano. Ray Crawford's guitar underscores a good number of the tracks here with that clean, lean, single-note style of his – but Lou is the clear star throughout with his deeply-voiced lyrics of older familiar tunes. Titles include his landmark reworking of "Tobacco Road", plus "Summertime", "Stormy Weather", "Rocking Chair", "Ol Man River", "St Louis Blues", and "Sentimental Journey". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "When It's Sleepy Time Down South" and the previously unissued "Gloomy Sunday". (Soul, Vocalists) CD
