Yellow Bird/Enja (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
Such a cool little record – one that's quite different than the usual sort of jazz vocal session, thanks to some very "mouthy" tenor work from Otis Sandsjo, who almost acts as a second sort of singer on the set! Lucia Cadotsch is in the lead, with just the bass of Petter Eldh as ... read more CD

Esther PhillipsBlack-Eyed Blues ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
One of Esther's strong winners for Kudu – a record that takes her soulful style of earlier years, and wraps it around some sly 70s funky arrangements! Ex-James Brown hornman Pee Wee Ellis arranged the album, and gave Esther a nice little dose of funk that really helped her groove – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Kudu/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99
A pretty amazing set from Esther Phillips – her final album for Kudu – and a beautiful mix of soaring soul sounds from one the most unique, emotionally-inflected soul vocalists of her era!

Esther PhillipsPerformance ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Not a live album – as you might think from the title – but a tight batch of tunes that shows the full funk and soul talents of the legendary Esther Phillips! The album's got a nicely dark undercurrent at times – a sound that's not as smooth as some of Esther's other Kudu albums ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

The great Gregory Porter in a very different setting than usual – working here with larger backings from an entire orchestra, as part of the album's tribute to Nat King Cole during his glory days at Capitol Records!

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Chico's our kinda singer – a small combo jazz pianist who also vocalizes while playing – in a style that reminds us a bit of Matt Dennis at the time! Chico's got a warm, honest voice – no Sinatra on the pipes, but an easygoing style that we really love – especially as it ... read more CD

Capitol, 1962. Used ... $1.99
One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album.

A 70s soul classic – and the closest that Gil Scott-Heron ever came to having a hit! The album's best known for its anthemic classic "Johannesburg" – one of the first popular tunes to really push the cause of a free South Africa – but the whole album's a winner, filled ...

One of Gil Scott-Heron's best albums from later years! The record's got some wonderful mellow cuts – the kind that send chills up our spine, and which remind us of Gil's stripped-down jazzy work on the album Winter In America. And in fact, Gil does an excellent remake of the classic track ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD
