Ann RichardsAnn, Man! ... LP
Atco, 1961. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by 50s vocalist Ann Richards – best known for her work with Stan Kenton in the post-June Christy days, stepping out very nicely here in a small group session! Ann's definitely got a touch of the June in her approach – but she's also a bit warmer, and ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ann Richards/Stan KentonTwo Much ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $2.99

This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2020. New Copy ... $22.99
These guys already had our attention the moment we looked at the back cover – and noted that they were playing songs by Phil Cohran, Sun Ra, and Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre – then they really won us over once we heard the very first few notes of the set! The group's only a quartet on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Rose BandJupiter Effect ... LP
Crossroad/BBE (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Larry Rose plays some mighty sweet keyboards on this late 70s set – electric piano, organ, and other keys as well – and also sings a fair bit on the record, in this great blend of jazz, soul, and some tighter modes of the time! The approach is maybe a bit in the territory of jazzy soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Renee RosnesWritten In The Rocks ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 17.98
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – ... read more CD

Frank RosolinoFree For All ... LP
Specialty, 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Not the all-out chaos you might expect from the title, but a hell of a great 50s session from trombonist Frank Rosolino – produced by a young David Axelrod, and possibly one of Frank's greatest albums of the time! The group's got a bit more bite and a lot more soul than some of Rosolino's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Great stuff – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge!

Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A killer – and one of the greatest records ever cut on Bethlehem!

The title makes this one sound like a batch of bachelor pad tunes, but the album itself is easily one of Pete Rugolo's best of the 50s – a really tremendous big band outing that's filled with all-star players – all in a groove that breaks Pete very firmly past his Kenton heritage!
