Concord, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s.

Capitol, 1960. Very Good- ... $5.99
A Swingin Session indeed – as Frank steps out with Nelson Riddle on one of his last great albums for Capitol!

Sweet 70s funk from the great Oscar Brown – quite a change from his jazz-based work of the 60s, but a great new sitting for all of his wonderful wit and warmth!

Capitol, 1959. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sinatra at his lonely best – as emphasized by the cover image, which has him sitting alone at a bar, looking sadly into his drink.
