Betty RocheSingin' & Swingin' ... CD
Prestige, 1960. Used ... $22.99
One of the best vocal jazz albums that Prestige ever released, and a nice batch of soulful titles by this former Ellington vocalist.

Bobby RodriguezSimply Macrame (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Jazz Men/Jazz Detective (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A fantastic album of soulful jazz – and one that's got a lot more staying power than the macrame craze of the 70s! Don't confuse this Bobby with the Rodriguez who put out some mid 70s salsa albums on Vaya in New York – because this Bobby's a trumpet player from the LA scene, one who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Extra Lovely, 2019. New Copy ... $19.99 20.00
A really beautiful record by young Chilean pianist Enrique Rodriguez – a set that's got little more going on than piano and keyboards, but which really makes the most of those elements!

Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little album – one that has Shorty Rogers fluegelhorn backed by a set of gospelly arrangements with a sort of chantin' stompin' feel to them – for a groove that's much more soulful than any of Rogers' other records from the time!

RCA, Early 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
Excellent early west coast material – and some of the greatest work that Shorty Rogers ever put on record!
