One of Mose's best early albums – even though he hardly gets a chance to sing on it!

Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
A strange title, but the record's a pretty nice collection of Mose Allison's early work for Prestige – a collection that focuses only on his instrumental work as a pianist, and doesn't include any of his better-known vocals!

Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $3.99
One of Ernestine's early albums for Mercury – a bit unsure as to its direction: soul jazz, straight ballad vocals, or a bit of vocalese jazz – but that's kind of what makes it interesting!

Swingin early work from Ann-Margret, always the vivacious one – and we're not even talking about her voice!

Terry CallierFire On Ice ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/Craft, 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 34.99
Terry Callier's first album – recorded in 1964 when he was a wee teen hanging around Chicago's folk scene! As the title indicates, the album's definitely got a folk-styled sound – but also as the "new" implies, it's got a sound all it's own, fresh and free – and that ...

Terry CallierTurn You To Love ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
Our favorite Elektra album by Terry – different than his earlier work for Cadet, with a smoother jazz-based style of backing. The change works surprisingly well for Terry, pushing him into a new sound that still preserves his honest soulful vocals. The album includes nice remakes of "Or ...

✨✧ Terry CallierWhat Color Is Love ... LP
Cadet/Verve, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Possibly the greatest album ever by the legendary Chicago soul singer Terry Callier! Terry's rich mellow voice is mixed with superb arrangements from the Cadet studio team, with Charles Stepney at the head, and the result is completely sublime. The songs are longer than on earlier albums – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gone, 1958. Very Good ... $29.99
A really unusual later album from Cab Calloway – a set recorded for the mostly R&B label Gone, and done in a style that update the Calloway sound from previous years at the Cotton Club! The overall presentation is strongly jazz-based – with arrangements by Eddie Barefield, who also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, 1969. Very Good ... $2.99
Like Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66? Then you'll love The Carnival! The group was formed by three former members of Sergio's group, working in 1969 with stellar LA pop production from the mighty Bones Howe – all grooving in a style that's got all the best traces of the Brasil 66 sound!

Diahann CarrollDiahann Carroll ... LP
Motown, 1974. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A later album from Diahann Carroll – recorded for Motown at a time when she'd more than proved herself as a jazz singer and actress. The style here is a bit overblown, even for Carroll – with full, rich arrangements in the lusher styles of the 70s – in a mode that almost takes ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Diahann CarrollPersian Room Presents Diahann Carroll ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Although she later lost all connection to jazz singing, in this early record, Diahann Carroll does a ok job with a batch of standards and pop material, conducted by Peter Matz, in his years before Barbara Streisand. The album's reaching for that same sort of classy sound, but thankfully has a lot ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Betty CarterRound Midnight (Atco) ... LP
Atco, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An interesting early album from Betty Carter – less jazz than some of her later work, but with a bit more of an edge than some of her ABC recordings. The album's got sort of an arranged sophisticated jazz style – in the mode of 60s work by Esther Phillips or Dinah Washington – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1960. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you ...

Later Atlantic Records material from the legendary Ray Charles – a set that definitely lives up to the genius of the title, in that it shows a real sense of development in Ray's music!

Ray Charles in a nicely maturing mode – on a record from later in his Atlantic Records years, definitely paving the way forward for his 60s classics on ABC! The tunes are blues, but not in the way that Charles first started recording on earlier singles for Atlantic – as there's a bit ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

The second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul!

Easily one of the best Ray Charles albums on ABC – if not one of the best Ray Charles albums of all-time. Ray's in his C&W mode here, but it's a bit more restrained than on other LPs, and is replaced here by a sophisticated style that works perfectly with his heartbreaking voice. Proof ...

A pivotal album for Ray Charles – one that features the sweet electric piano jammer "What'd I Say" – offered up here in 2 parts, and a track that would become the prototype for so many funk songs in years to come!

A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful.

A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s.
