Mose AllisonHello There Universe ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970. Used ... $6.99
One of Mose's best albums for Atlantic – an ambitious session that features larger arrangements backing him up, making for a much fuller sound than on other records! The album includes a greatly grooving version of "Wild Man On The Loose" – done with this cool sneaky organ ... read more CD

✨✧ Mose AllisonMose Alive ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
One of Mose's mid 60s albums for Atlantic – recorded live, with a bit more of a hip flair than some of his earlier work for Prestige and Columbia, but still with those great vocals that went onto influence a generation of beatnik jazz singers. Mose has more than a bit of New Orleans in his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mose AllisonYour Mind Is On Vacation ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ol' Mose manages to keep his cool, even in the 70s – laying down some great small combo work with Joe Farrell and Al Cohn each playing a bit of tenor! That Allison vocal approach is right on the money – and titles include "Your Molecular Structure", "If You Only ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other ...

✨✧ Andy BeyExperience & Judgment ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredibly righteous record from the legendary Andy Bey – an artist who's risen back to fame in recent years as a relatively straight jazz singer – but who was in some very heady territory here in the early 70s! Bey first rose to fame as part of the vocal trio, Andy & The Bey ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterDee Dee Bridgewater (1976) ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Dee Dee Bridgewater's first album as a soul singer – recorded a few years after she first broke on the scene as a righteous jazz vocalist on hip early 70s classics! The sound here is different than the material Bridgewater started with, but still plenty great from a soul perspective – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Rhino, 1950s. Used 3 CDs ... $16.99
You know, over the years, you get exposed to so many cliches about Ray Charles that it's easy to forget how great he is – but you won't after hearing this set! This totally essential box pushes way past any other collection to pull together the raw early R&B sides by Ray – much ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Ray CharlesDo The Twist With Ray Charles ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
Pretty great stuff – and not the gimmicky "dance" record you might guess from the title! The set's simply a collection of some of Ray's best hard-hitting R&B tracks for Atlantic – mostly recorded in the 50s, and brought together with this 60s title, in a package that also ...

✨✧ Earl ColemanLove Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great return to form for vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer who'd recorded earlier in the bop years, but who makes a rare 60s appearance here on a soulful set for Atlantic Records! Coleman's got a rich voice that's somewhere between Johnny Hartman and Billy Eckstine – with a great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ConnorI Miss You So ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Good+ ... $4.99
A beautiful title for a beautiful record – one that sums up the subtle sense of sadness that makes the work of Chris Connor so great! There's a sense of longing here that steps out from the very first tune – one that's beautifully moody, without being overindulgent or too emotive. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Collectables, 1956/1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 lovely sides by Chris Conner – early albums she recorded for Atlantic, right after her years at Bethlehem, where she'd perfected an icy cool style of singing that's still to be matched to this day! Both albums feature larger arrangements – I Miss You So by Ray Ellis, and Witchcraft ... read more CD

Atlantic/Collectables, Late 50s. Used ... $6.99
2 classic Atlantic sides from Chris!

✨✧ Chris ConnorJazz Date With Chris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Rhino, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful stuff – and a great CD that brings together 2 of Chris Connor's best jazz albums for Atlantic!

Chris ConnorPortrait Of Chris ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99
A very moody album from Chris Connor – one that features arrangements by Ronnie Ball and Jimmy Jones, on a somber set of songs that makes the album one of Chris' darkest for Atlantic! Most of the tunes are in small group settings – a bit tightly arranged, but in a good way that gives ... read more CD

Bobby DarinBobby Darin Sings Doctor Dolittle ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+ ... $0.99
One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score. Plus, the cover's got Bobby leaning on a push me-pull me, with a doctor's bag and a big stovepipe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby DarinSings Shadow Of Your Smile (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet set that has Bobby Darin working partially in that more adult 60s mode that was influenced strongly by changes in soundtrack styles – especially that 60s trend towards letting some serious younger songwriters pen important tunes for the titles. There's also a few older tracks as well ... read more CD

Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
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 ...
