Verve, 1956. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the strongest of Anita's mid 50s outings for Verve – a tightly-crafted set that benefits from some good arrangements from Buddy Bregman!

Anita O'Day is fast and free in this live set recorded at Chicago's famous Mister Kelly's nightclub – a venue that gives the recording a nice intimate feel!

Anita O'DayAnita O'Day Swings Cole Porter With Billy May (plus Anita O'Day Swings Rodgers & Hart) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959/1960. Used ... $8.99
A great double-length CD that presents 2 of Anita O'Day's Verve sessions with Billy May! Anita O'Day Swings Cole Porter is something of an addition to the Verve "songbook" mode of the 50s – but it's also one that's a lot more dynamic than the others, thanks to some very jazzy ... read more CD

Verve, 1959. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Very cool work from Anita O'Day – a session cut with Jimmy Giuffre arrangements, in a style that's a bit different than some of her other 50s work for Verve!

Anita O'DayIncomparable! ... LP
Verve, 1960. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Lovely work from Anita O'Day – a relatively obscure session that has her working with west coast arrangements from the pen of Bill Holman.

Della ReeseMelancholy Baby ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Della Reese definitely takes the "melancholy" in the title seriously here – and turns the set into one of her most blue-tinged records from the early days! The backings are full, but never too lush – handled perfectly by Sid Bass, who shades in the corners with some sad ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Della ReeseWhat Do You Know About Love ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Prime early Della Reese at her best – a record with a really moody feel, and a depth that few other singers can match! The arrangements from Reg Owen have a fair bit of strings, and a very blue undercurrent – and Della's vocals cut through them strongly with a soulful, searching ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Irene ReidRoom For One More ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Although Irene Reid later went on to make some recordings that had her in a more rootsy setting, this nice set from the mid 60's features her deep soul voice amidst classy jazz-based arrangements by Oliver Nelson.

Buddy RichBuddy Rich Sings Johnny Mercer ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the few rare vocal sessions recorded by Buddy Rich – and a surprisingly swinging album that makes us wonder why he didn't record more like this!

PA USA, 1985. Sealed ... $16.99
Always-great work from sunny singer Judy Roberts – and an album with some real surprises! The overall sound is perhaps a bit more electric, and a bit smoother than some of Roberts' earlier albums – but given the sweetness of Judy's tone, the style actually works pretty darn nicely to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sugar Ray RobinsonI'm Still Swinging (microphone cover) ... LP
Continental, Early 60s. Sealed ... $19.99
A pretty great record – even if the singing isn't! The album's a "boxer turned vocalist" session (anyone care to catalog that sub-genre?) by Sugar Ray Robinson – recorded at some time late in his career, with a warm and jazzy finish that's very forgiving to his stiff and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Aldemaro Romero & His Onda NuevaAldemaro Romero Presenta La Onda Nueva ... LP
TH, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A rare set from the fantastic Aldemaro Romero – filled with that sublime blend of bossa instrumentation and chorus vocals that he did so well at the time – totally groovy, and kind of a different take on the territory of Sergio Mendes, mixed with an influence from Italian soundtracks!
