Elis Regina & Zimbo TrioO Fino Do Fino ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the first great moments on record from the legendary Elis Regina – a singer with a hell of a voice, and one that had already been winning over huge crowds in Brazil – which is probably why this album, like most of her first, was done in a live setting! The vibe here is different ... (Brazil, Vocalists) read more CD

Ann Richards/Stan KentonTwo Much ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $5.99
Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic solo showcase for the voice of Jimmy Ricks – a singer who's perhaps known best for the deep tones he brought to The Ravens vocal group – but who sounds pretty great here on his own!

✨✧ Max RoachWe Insist! – Freedom Now Suite ... LP
Candid, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most righteous albums that Max Roach ever cut – and a monumental jazz release from the heart of the Civil Rights era!

It's the mid 90s, and singer Judy Roberts is as strong as ever – recording here with a small combo in a style that's right in keeping with her classic work from the early 80s. The sound's perhaps a bit more acoustic than before – with more piano, sax, and bass than earlier albums' ... read more CD
