✨✧ Barbara McNairI Enjoy Being A Girl ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Mel Torme gives Barbara McNair some mighty big props in the notes to this one – and hearing the set, we certainly have to agree! The record may well be McNair's most dramatic of the 60s – still a mix of vocal and jazz styles with a touch of soul – but also done with a bit more ...

Carmen McRaeBirds Of A Feather ... LP
Decca, 1958. Good+ ... $5.99
A gimmicky album – but a nice one! Carmen sings a set of "bird-related" songs – like "Skylark", "Bob White", "Flamingo", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "Baltimore Oriole" – and while the idea of such a record might be painful, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRaeBy Special Request ... LP
Decca, 1955. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A cool session for Decca that has Carmen's vocals flowing out wonderfully amidst some very haunting backings! The sound here is a bit unusual – given that the groups are headed by accordion Mat Mathews and pianist Dick Katz – both of whom have a good ear for unusual phrasing, and who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, a split top seam and an ink stamp on the back. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Carmen McRaeCarmen McRae Live At Sugar Hill – San Francisco ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful set by Carmen McRae – captured at San Francisco's Sugar Hill in 1962 – backed by a tight trio! Carmen is in sweet form here, very loose and and wise, and the group knows just how to fill out the sound. She scats loosely on the opening "Sunday", nearly hits a weep ... read more CD

Carmen McRaeCarmen Sings Monk ... LP
Novus, 1990. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Incredible work from Carmen – one of her last great albums! The set was recorded in 1988 – but it's got an "instant classic" feel that makes it one of the best vocal jazz albums of its generation. Carmen's working with a small group that includes Charlie Rouse, Larry Willis, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Carmen McRaeJust A Little Lovin ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Bold, boozy work from Carmen McRae – a wonderfully mature album from that great time when her style was equal parts jazz and soul – put together here by arranger/producer Arif Mardin, a perfect choice for the record! There's a care to the overall presentation not heard in some of McRae' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Carmen McRaeLive & Doin' It ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
About as strong an example of the genius of Carmen McRae as you could ever hope to find – a live album that displays Carmen's impeccable phrasing in a very stripped-down setting – and one that also swings with a fair degree of sophisticated soul as well! Back in the 50s, Carmen paved ... read more CD

Carmen McRaeSecond To None ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Carmen McRae's best records of the 60s – an album done with beautiful arrangements from Peter Matz, who's probably best known for his work with Barbara Streisand at the time – and who really helps McRae take her music to the next level! Carmen was already one of the most ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Carmen McRaeSound Of Silence ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Carmen McRae's great 60s albums for Atlantic Records – a set that's still strongly jazz-based overall, but which seems to have an extra dose of soul at the bottom! The approach is a bit like the best late 60s sides by Nancy Wilson or Marlena Shaw – rooted in jazz, but hipper ... read more CD

Carmen McRaeWoman Talk – Live At The Village Gate ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A rock-solid swinger from the great Carmen McRae – working here in a live setting with a very cool combo! The group's more than just a trio – although it is grounded by excellent piano work from Norman Simmons – and the record features nice use of flute from Ray Bernstein, guitar ... read more CD

Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $12.99
A split album that features 4 tracks by Carmen McRae with the Mat Mathews quartet, plus 4 more obscure numbers by Julie London, recording with the quartet of Tony Scott. The McRae material is some of her best jazz work from the time – cut in that perfect small group vocal mode that was one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even ...

Helen MerrillAmerican Country Songs ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Quite an unusual album from Helen Merrill – but a set that also shows that quite early on, she was a singer with a keen ear for working on larger concepts too! Merrill first rose to fame as a cool-voiced singer in the 50s, but she does a surprisingly great job here with country tunes as well ... read more CD

Helen MerrillArtistry Of Helen Merrill ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A really fantastic album from singer Helen Merrill – and quite an obscure one as well! The set was recorded after Helen's initial burst to fame on the Mercury label in the 50s – and has her taking on a more laidback, more open-minded approach here in a very hip setting that includes a ... read more CD

Owl/Sunnyside (France), 1986. Used ... $9.99
Proof that Helen Merrill was continuing to grow as a singer – well into her fourth decade of recording! This obscure session was recorded in France in 1986 – with a lineup that includes Steve Lacy on soprano sax, Gordon Beck on acoustic and electric piano, and Stephane Grappelli on ... read more CD
