Jackie & RoyConcerts By The Sea ... LP
Studio 7, 1976. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A sweet 70s set from Jackie & Roy – just the kind of record that shows that their genius kept on growing and growing as the years went on! The album's a nice change from the fuller, freer sound of the pair's earlier 70s sides on CTI – but it's also not the straighter jazz of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the first albums ever from the team of Jackie Caine and Roy Kral – and one of the best, too!

Could anyone ever utter a sexier line than "Don't go to strangers, come to me?"

Hard to imagine Etta Jones being lonely and blue – especially when she sounds as great as this!

Johnny MathisThis Is Love ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... $0.99
Great arrangements really make this one sparkle – thanks to backings from Allyn Ferguson, done in that perfect mix of soft strings and shimmering brass that seems to work best for the vocals of Johnny Mathis!

Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good ... $11.99

Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material!
