✨✧ Patti AustinIn & Out Of Love ... CD
Concord, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
A relatively recent set from Patti Austin, but a great one too – an album that has her working in warmly jazzy arrangements that are much more restrained than her soul work of a few years before! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to the set – one that's somewhat smooth, as you might expect from Austin, but in a way that's a bit more indie than commercial – most likely due to the Concord Records approach. Most numbers have keyboards alongside the vocals, but these are kept to the warmer side of the spectrum, and never overwhelm Patti's vocals too much. Arrangements are by Narada Michael Walden and Louis Kingpin Biancaniello – and titles include "Do Si Doe In", "In & Out Of Love", "Don't Go Away", "Totally Unacceptable", "Once In A Lifetime", and "I Will Be There".

Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
ABC/Concord, 1962. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Brilliant work throughout – both of Ray Charles' classic country albums on a single CD package! Volume one is the stuff of legends – and what seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius – the most successful album of his career and a bona-fide number one hit that rode the charts for years and years! Ray's voice works perfectly with the material, and thanks to soulful arrangements by Gil Fuller, Marty Paich, and Gerald Wilson, the whole thing comes off to perfection. Titles include "You Don't Know Me", "I Can't Stop Lovin You", "Careless Love", "You Win Again", and "Worried Mind". Volume 2 is the second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul! As the title implies, Ray's singing a host of tunes best known from the country side of the spectrum – but he's working here with arrangements by LA jazzers Marty Paich and Gerald Wilson, to completely re-cast the tunes into the "modern sounds" mode promised in the title. The result is wonderful – a style that gave Ray's career a whole new boost, and a genre that was a perfect foil for his rich bluesy mode of singing. Titles include "No Letter Today", "Take These Chains From My Heart", "Teardrops In My Heart", "Making Believe", and "Hang Your Head In Shame". CD

✨✧ Nnenna FreelonHome Free ... CD
Concord, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic tunes, in the hands of Nnenna Freelon – wonderfully transformed with a soulful spirit that's really wonderful! The approach here is still jazz at the core, but there's a freshness to the arrangements that makes the versions way more than just simple standards – the kind of dynamic vibe that you might hear in a record by Carmen Lundy, although Nnenna's take is very much it's own thing, too! Instrumentation is small combo on all tracks, usually with piano or Fender Rhodes in the lead – and titles include "Get Out Of Town", "The Lamp Is Low", "I Feel Pretty", "Valley Of The Dolls", "Smile", "You & The Night & The Music", and "Lift Every Voice & Sing".

✨✧ Marlena ShawDangerous ... CD
Concord, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of Marlena Shaw's recent albums – an easy going set of vocal tracks, mostly standards, that doesn't try for anything tricky, and which really just lets Marlena do her thing. The backing is mostly piano trio, augmented by nice percussion touches by Milton Cardona, and some occasional guest organ by Ed Kelly or tenor by Chris Potter. As usual, Marlena does a strong job of shifting between jazz and soul modes – keeping things hip without going too far off the deep end, and always setting the songs up with her trademark classy approach. Titles include "Whisper Not", "Blackberry Winter", "Dangerous", "Close Enough For Love", "Dim The Lights", "Give Me One More Chance", and "Keep On Trustin". CD

✨✧ VariousJesus Rocked The Jukebox – Small Group Black Gospel 1951 to 1965 ... CD
Concord/Craft, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel – one that really keeps the spirit of the "jukebox" in the title! The tunes here are all upbeat, and often share a lot with R&B material of the 50s – especially the vocal group numbers, which often echo more secular modes of early doo wop, but rise the lyrics towards more heavenly aims – while often imbuing the tunes with lots of earthy energy! All the tracks here are from the Vee Jay and Specialty Records labels – and in the case of Vee Jay especially, the well-chosen selection of tracks provides a long-overdue focus to tunes that have mostly been reissued for the spiritual market, and haven't gotten the kind of exposure in the soul scene that they've needed over the years! This collection really corrects that – handled by the excellent Craft division of Concord who've been giving us some great Stax reissues – and the package is overflowing with rare singles, a total of 40 tracks in all – accompanied by great notes in a really well-done package. Titles include "Let Jesus Lead You" by The Detroiters, "Let Me Ride" by The Staple Singers, "Ananais" by The Chosen Gospel Singers, "Wade In The Water" by Harmonizing Four, "This May Be The Last Time" by The Original Five Blind Boys, "Just Another Day" by Soul Stirrers, "I Am So Glad" by Patterson Singers, "I Dreamed Heaven Was Like This" by Highway QCs, "Move Upstairs" by The Gable-Airs, "Angels Watching Over Me" by The Detroiters, "The Lord's Prayer" by Swan Silvertones, "Sinner Run To Jesus (take 1)" by Soul Stirrers, and "People Don't Sing Like They Used To Sing" by Original Blind Boys.
