Georgie AuldDouble Image ... CD
Ocium (Spain), 1949/1951/1952. Used ... $9.99
Beautiful work from the vastly under-rated Georgie Auld - a tenorist with a sweet tone, but one who could also play with a nice edge when he wanted! The set brings to light work that Auld recorded for the Discovery label in 1949, and the Coral label in the years 1951 and 1952 – featuring a total of 24 tracks, most of which were only ever issued on 78 rpm recordings! The group's are largeish on most of the tracks – 8 to 10 players usually – and a few of the tracks feature Georgie blowing with the Jud Conlon Rhythmaires. Titles include "Nashooma", "Vox Bop", "Settin The Pace", "Room With A View", "Early Autumn", "On The Alamo", "You've Got Me Jumpin", and "Hollywood Bazaar". CD

✨✧ Tony BennettTony Makes It Happen/Yesterday I Heard The Rain ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of late 60s Columbia classics from Tony Bennett – back to back on a single CD! First up is Tony Makes It Happen – a very jazzy album, with a group that features Joe Wilder and Joe Newman on trumpets, Urbie Green on trombone, Joe Soldo on flute, and orchestrations from Marion Evans – all of whom really bring out those unique qualities that set Bennett apart from so many other singers in his generation! Where a Vic Damone might have used his inherent richness to push things over the top, the maturing Tony is a master of restraint – still able to run the full gamut of his amazing range, but set up with these beautiful arrangements that bring some adult understanding to the tunes, in a beautifully subtle vibe. Titles include "What Makes It Happen", "I Don't Know Why", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", "She's Funny That Way", "A Beautiful Friendship", and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore". Next is Yesterday I Heard The Rain – fantastically mature work from Tony Bennett – a record that follows in that great direction the singer was taking in the 60s – delivering sophisticated vocals that didn't care much for the charts, but which really stand the test of time as the years go by! As on some of Tony's best from the period, arrangements are by Torrie Zito – whose careful orchestrations always let Bennett's vocals soar out in the lead, while also hitting some occasional flourishes that bring just the slight touch of drama to the music – but never in the over the top styles of some of his contemporary! Space is the key here – lots of space between the words and the notes – which makes even simpler songs sound pretty darn amazing. Titles include "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Fool Of Fools", "Only The Young", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Yesterday I Heard The Rain", and a surprisingly great version of "Hushabye Mountain".

Jack Van PollHi Jackin' (180 gram gold vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Drop) ... LP
Decca/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A massive Fender Rhodes set from early 70s Belgium – the kind of set that never shows up on this side of the Atlantic, and which is pretty darn rare in its home territory too! Keyboardist Jack Van Poll has a wonderful sense of space on this set – a way of letting the tunes build simply and gracefully – often with a slow-growing groove that lets the Rhodes roll along wonderfully – never too slow, though, and always with a sweet funky undercurrent! And while we'd never heard of Jack before this set, he's got a great sense of style and imagination on his solos – very open, but always with a soulful undercurrent. The rest of the trio includes Mary Hehuat on Fender bass and Ruud Pronk on drums – and titles include "Marriedyet", "Blue Tait", "A Box For Leslie", "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Passage To Pferov", and "Objizdka". LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary pressing – limited ediiton of 750 – on heavyweight gold vinyl!)
