Louis Jordan & His Timpany FiveJivin' With Jordan ... LP
Charly (UK), 1940s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
An excellent collection of some of Louis Jordan's best work – his seminal 40s sides for Decca, recorded with his hard-swinging Timpany Five combo! The tracks are short and swinging, a key precursor to R&B and later soul – delivered with an undeniable groove and plenty of good ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sheila JordanYesterdays ... CD
High Note, 1990. Used ... $9.99
An excellent live date from Sheila Jordan – and quite an unusual one, too! The set features Jordan's vocals with just the bass of Harvie S for accompaniment – a wonderfully spare setting that lets Sheila open up in all those freely inventive ways she first started showing us in the 70s ... read more CD

Sheila Jordan & Arild AndersenSheila ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1977. Used ... $11.99
One of the hippest albums ever recorded by Sheila Jordan – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of her work! The album's a set of spare duets recorded in Oslo with bassist Arild Andersen – in a setting that recalls some of the initial experimental work she'd done with Roswell ... read more CD

Kitty KallenMy Coloring Book ... LP
RCA, 1962. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Key work from Kitty Kallen's comeback period at the start of the 60s – work that showcases her wonderfully fragile way of putting over a ballad – a sad-tinged sound that's different from most other singers! There's a slight hint of country roots in Kitty's voice at times, but the style ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with obi, printed inner sleeve, and insert!)

Kimiko Kasai with Cedar Walton TrioKimiko Is Here ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1974. Very Good+ ... $38.99
A great set from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – recorded live with spare backing by the Cedar Walton trio, in a mode that's quite different than her better-known 70s electric set with Herbie Hancock! If anything, Kimiko's sound here is more dynamic than the Herbie session – as the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the bottom seam, and some light wear, but vinyl is great.)

Kimiko Kasai with Kosuke MineYellow Carcass In The Blue ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
A record that's far more beautiful than you'd guess from the "carcass" in the title – a strong set of vocal work from singer Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the hippest Japanese singers of the 70s! Although Kasai's sometimes straight on the album, she also stretches out in freer ... read more CD

Mary Kaye TrioNight Life ... LP
20th Century, Early 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
Although the Mary Kaye Trio put out a number of goofy Vegas-y show albums, this one's actually got them singing some great stuff with a bit more of a traditional vocal style. Mary takes the lead solo on most of these, and she lays down a great version of "How Does the Wine Taste?", plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
