Smalls Live, 2010. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99

✨✧ AkikoHave Yourself A Merry Little Christmas ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
A sweet little Holiday album from Akiko – one that really makes the most of her vocal style to bring new life to some familiar Christmas favorites!

BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Mose Allison is one of the coolest, grooviest singers ever to grace the face of jazz – a voice you'll recognize instantly, even if you don't know his name – and an artist who had a huge influence on the sound of the London scene in the 60s! Mose was mod before mod was a thing – ... read more CD

✨✧ Johnny AprilIf You Are Not Plucked You Die (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Apollo/SSJ (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $24.99
We're not sure how many "roses" Johnny April plucked back in the day – but with patter like that, he sure must have gotten plenty of play in the dating scene! Yet cheesy lines aside, Johnny's a hell of a hipster – an obscure jazz singer, and one who also plays a mean piano ... read more CD

✨✧ Louis ArmstrongLouis Armstrong & His Friends ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
Louis Armstrong hits the Flying Dutchman label – and unlocks a whole new spiritual side of his talents – a mode that's quite different than some of his crossover pop of the 60s!

Reprise/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A beautiful and rare recording – both for singer Alice Babs, and Duke Ellington himself! The session was cut in Paris in 1963 – and it's a moody, intimate album that features Duke backing up Alice with arrangements that are quieter and more subtle than those used with most other ... read more CD

Amina BarakaAmina Baraka & The Red Microphone ... CD
ESP, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Amina Baraka's holding a megaphone on the cover, but she hardly needs it at all – given the righteous power of her voice on this album – still completely amazing after all these years! The album follows in the best tradition of work started by Amiri Baraka back in the 60s – a ... read more CD

Crest/Playback (Australia), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A hip Australian jazz singer from the 70s – and one who isn't afraid of picking up a bit of soul, too – as she mixes songs from Stax Records, Motown, and Atlantic alongside more familiar standards in the set! Sue clearly got the chance to record in a scene that was less concerned with ... read more CD

Elsie Bianchi TrioElsie Bianchi Trio – At Chateau Fleur De Lys ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
A really unusual slice of work from pianist Elsie Bianchi – not just because the tracks here have never been heard before, but also because they feature Elsie playing some Hammond, in addition to her usual piano – and the recording was also made in Atlanta, and not some of the European ... read more CD
Also available Elsie Bianchi Trio – At Chateau Fleur De Lys ... LP 22.99

Jane BirkinLolita Go Home (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin take Jane's ever-growing trash rock aesthetic into the Euro club world of the 70s – and the result is an insane batch of tracks that are among Birkin's craziest work of the decade! She sings with an incredibly deadpan style – as you'll hear especially ... (French, Vocalists) read more CD

Bill BlackDown In The Depths (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cellar Door/SSJ (Japan), 1950. New Copy ... $24.99
An amazing session recorded by Bill Black – a singer known best for his work with Gene Krupa in the 40s, but whose life took a sad turn in the 50s, and was barely heard from again!

Theo BleckmannElegy ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Theo Bleckmann's a singer unlike any other we can think of – a vocalist who moves in these moody, mysterious waves of sound – often quite dark, even on lighter material – and maybe one of the few male singers who's attempted to get anywhere near the modes of some of the more ... read more CD

Ruth BrownRuth Brown '65 ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A very unusual setting for the legendary Ruth Brown – the singer who first rose to fame singing raw-edged R&B tracks for Atlantic Records in the 50s – but who works here in a much jazzier mode overall! The set features backings from Peter Matz – who often accompanied the ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem!
