Capitol, 1958. Very Good ... $3.99
June's got rhythm, sure, but the real thing that makes her great is her dark and moody sense of melody! This album's one of June's late 50s efforts done with husband/arranger Bob Cooper – not as arch modern as some of her work with Pete Rugolo, but still in a style that's definitely inspired ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyMisty Miss Christy ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyOff Beat ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of June's greatest records, next to her impossible to beat Something Cool! Like that set, this one features dark arrangements by Pete Rugolo, working very hard here to win the "off beat" tag of the title. June's perfectly matched for this sort of setting, and her detachedly sad ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of our all-time favorites from vocalist June Christy – part of an excellent 50s run for Capitol Records in collaboration with arranger Pete Rugolo – a talent who transformed the sound Christy cut with the Kenton band into a whole new range for jazz vocals! The setting is rich and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match!

Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $4.99
A beautiful title for a beautiful record – one that sums up the subtle sense of sadness that makes the work of Chris Connor so great! There's a sense of longing here that steps out from the very first tune – one that's beautifully moody, without being overindulgent or too emotive. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pure crooning genius from Vic Damone – with fresh arrangements from Capitol maestro Jack Marshall!

One of Bobby D's albums from his confused period in the mid 60s! Sounds sort of goofy, but it actually works, thanks to some swinging arrangements by Roger Kellaway, and the pep and zip of the score.
