Jerri WintersSomebody Loves Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99
Jerri Winters gets some hip backings here – thanks to help from the Al Belletto Sextet, who almost share the star spotlight on the record as much as Jerri! The combo are perhaps best known for their 50s work on Capitol, but they sound equally great here – stepping out with a tight ... read more CD

Supersax & LA VoicesSupersax & LA Voices Vol 1 ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
A fantastic shift in the sound of the Supersax ensemble – one that has the group's jazzy instrumentation mixed with a vocal chorus – in a way that's a bit similar to some of the best Singers Unlimited albums for MPS in the 70s! The title, cover, and group's name might make you think ... (Jazz, Vocalists) read more CD

Herb JeffriesSay It Isn't So ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the best-ever recordings by Herb Jeffries – a smooth-toned jazz singer from the 50s, with a style that's very much in the mode of contemporaries like Al Hibbler or Billy Eckstine, with a nice cheesecake cover too!

Marilyn MooreMoody Marilyn Moore ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99
A rare and exceptional vocal jazz LP – cut by the obscure Marilyn Moore, then the wife of Al Cohn – who's pictured in profile on the cover of the record! Marilyn's got a style that's somewhat raspy – clearly inspired by Billie Holiday at times, and not what you'd expect in ... read more CD

Sue & Ralph SharonMr & Mrs Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
Mr & Mrs Jazz – and their cool cousins too – given that the combo also features some sublime tenor sax from JR Monterose, in addition to vocals from Sue and piano from Ralph! The set's a much harder-edged date than you might guess from the cover – and Sharon's approach to ... read more CD

Stan Getz/Jimmy RowlesPeacocks ... CD
Sony (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A real standout in the Stan Getz catalog of the 70s – a session of mostly spare duets with pianist Jimmy Rowles, done in a way that really breaks from the format of Stan's other work of the time! Rowles here has a raspy warmth that brings out new voicings in Getz's tenor – an ... (Jazz, Vocalists) read more CD
