Novus/BMG (Japan), 1988. Used ... $11.99
Incredible work from Carmen – one of her last great albums! The set was recorded in 1988 – but it's got an "instant classic" feel that makes it one of the best vocal jazz albums of its generation. Carmen's working with a small group that includes Charlie Rouse, Larry Willis, ... read more CD

Impulse, 1960. Used ... $2.99
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 can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses.

Trane's Favorites was originally released only in Japan, eventually came out in the US on CD many years later (as For Trane) – and is one of Johnny Hartman's greatest recordings, perhaps his strongest jazz session ever!

An overlooked gem from Carmen – one of her few albums for Columbia from the 60s, and a wonderfully swinging small group session that's got a much more relaxed feel than some of her earlier sets!

Sweet 70s harmony pop from a group that follows nicely in the style of some of the smoother AOR groups of the LA scene of the earlier part of the decade – but who also manage to make the album come off nicely with their own sense of style and a semi-indie sort of approach.
