Shades Of JoyShades Of Joy ... LP
Fontana, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Shades of Joy were one of those cool little sixties bands that fell through the cracks – a San Francisco based, racially-mixed jazz group that had rock leanings, but did some neat groovy stuff. We like some of the instrumental cuts on here, but especially love "Icarus Revealed", a ... (Jazz, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sue & Ralph SharonMr & Mrs Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
Mr & Mrs Jazz – and their cool cousins too – given that the combo also features some sublime tenor sax from JR Monterose, in addition to vocals from Sue and piano from Ralph! The set's a much harder-edged date than you might guess from the cover – and Sharon's approach to ... read more CD

Marlena ShawLove Is In Flight ... CD
Verve/Polydor, 1988. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked bit of 80s soul from Marlena Shaw – and a mostly R&B-based album, despite it's appearance on Verve! Although the date is late, Marlena's still keeping the same vibe going that she used in her late 70s work for Columbia – a sophisticated mix of soul and jazz, handled ...

Marlena ShawOut Of Different Bags ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... CD
Cadet, 1969. Used ... $5.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, ...

Marlena ShawWho Is This Bitch, Anyway? ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
A great record from the mid 70s – one that has Marlena Shaw further developing her style as a sophisticated soul diva with a sharp modern edge! Although already great in the 60s, Shaw emerges here as an all-adult, all-woman singer – dealing with issues that never would have gotten ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Corky ShayneIn The Mood For A Song? ... LP
Salem, 1955. Very Good ... $39.99
A cool classic from mid 50s Chicago – a date that features singer Corky Shane working with him backings from the Johnnie Pate Quartet! Years before Pate rose to fame as a soul and soundtrack arranger, he was a key figure on the Chicago jazz scene – and does a great job backing Shane's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cybill ShepherdCybill Does It To Cole Porter ... LP
Paramount, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Cybill Shepherd sings Cole Porter tunes as they were originally written – meaning that all the double meanings and "blue" lyrics are intact without the editing that was later done for the general listening public. Her singing is not bad, very much in the style of a Broadway musical ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ben SidranDon't Let Go ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A rare Capitol Records outing from Ben Sidran – and one of his best from the early years! The album's a quirky batch of tracks that also gets nice and funky at times – and some of the best cuts have a tightly snapping feel with plenty of breaks – so much so that the album's been ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina's folsky, but she's also jazzy too – and the album's from a key time in which she was finding a very special way to bring the two modes together!
