Yasuko AgawaSunglow ... CD
Victor/Beatball (Korea), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
A classic groover from Yasuko Agawa – proof that the Japanese scene had an ear for soul in the years before Monday Michiru! The early 80s set is made up from equal parts jazz, soul, and Brazilian influences – all used nicely with tight, fusiony production that really works nicely with ... read more CD

Smalls Live, 2010. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Singer Cyrille Aimee gets help from some great "friends" here – a tight quintet with Roy Hargrove on trumpet, Joel Frahm on tenor, and Spike Wilner on piano – really helping set up her vocals with a solid instrumental footing! Aimee's got a slight Billie Holiday quality to ... read more CD

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

RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her ... 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

Patti AustinLive At The Bottom Line ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A live set from the great Patti Austin – but done at a level that's every bit as tight as her studio work from the time! Patti's in a perfect balance between jazz and soul here – and works with sweet arrangements from Dave Grusin and Leon Pendarvis – the latter of whom also leads ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Alice Babs & Duke EllingtonSerenade To Sweden ... CD
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

Sue BarkerSue Barker (with bonus tracks) ... 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
Also available Sue Barker (180 gram pressing) ... LP 28.99

Ewa BemBe a Man ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99

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

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! This album's a really unique session recorded by Bill in the early 50s – one that features very spare ... read more CD

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

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterMemphis – Yes, I'm Ready ... CD
Okeh, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
A beautiful turn in direction from the legendary jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater – a return to some of the soul-based modes she used in the 70s, but served up here as a tribute to Memphis soul of an earlier generation! The set was recorded in that fine southern city, at the Royal Studios ... read more CD
Also available Memphis – Yes, I'm Ready (180 gram pressing) ... LP 28.99

Lucia CadotschSpeak Low ... CD
Yellow Bird/Enja (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Such a cool little record – one that's quite different than the usual sort of jazz vocal session, thanks to some very "mouthy" tenor work from Otis Sandsjo, who almost acts as a second sort of singer on the set! Lucia Cadotsch is in the lead, with just the bass of Petter Eldh as ... read more CD

Emanuela CampanaFortissimo ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweetly sultry singer – and one whose style will grab you nicely, even if you don't understand Italian! The style here is laidback and jazzy – with a warm glow that comes from some very well-crafted arrangements – sometimes with a bit of bossa in the rhythms, sometimes kind of ... read more CD

Sue ChildsIntroducing Sue Childs (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Studio 4/SSJ (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $24.99
A rare album from a great little singer – a swinging jazz vocal set from the 60s, originally issued on a tiny label in Rock Island, Illinois! Sue Childs has a nicely personal feel here – a bit less polish than some of her mainstream contemporaries, but in ways that make the record ... read more CD

Alice ClarkAlice Clark ... 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! Alice Clark has a rich soulful voice, with a style that sounds a bit like Esther Marrow, mixed with some of the lead vocalists in Voices Of East Harlem – a really ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD
