VariousDestination Lust – The World Of Love, Sex, & Violence – 32 Erotic Fantasies From The Vaults ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A lusty set of tracks from the postwar years – music that doesn't just hint at sex, but which often seems to provide it, in the form of slinky female vocals, groans of pleasure, or other surprising elements that make these tunes a fair bit sexier than we might have guessed! The styles are a mix of pop, rock, jazz vocal, and other modes – and the presentation and production is as playful as the cover – perfect for this hefty 32 track collection, with titles that include "Topless" by Rolls Royce & The Wheels, "That Makes It" by Jayne Mansfield, "Crazy Vibrations" by The Bikinis, "Christine" by Miss X, "Scratch My Back"b y Lola Dee & Rusty Draper, "Separate The Men From The Boys" by Mamie Van Doren, "Be Not Notty" by Elke Sommer, "Charge It" by The Playboys, "The Whip" by The Frantics, "Hall Of Shame" by Bobbie Bolden, and "Little Girl" by John & Jackie.

A loungey album of vocals from this obscure Brazilian vocalist – and very much what you'd expect from the sexy cover! Norma's an emotive singer, playfully working her way through a number of tracks in Portuguese, plus some American standards from the 50s and 60s – all set to a slightly jazzy backing. Titles include "Ho Ba La La", "That Old Black Magic", "Drume Negrita", "C'est Si Bon", "Sente", and "Sucedeu Assim". (Brazil, Vocalists) CD

✨✧ Tony BennettSnowfall – The Christmas Album ... CD
Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
Killer Christmas work from Tony Bennett – a set recorded in the 60s, but a classic that endures strongly over the years! Tony's vocals are superb here – that nicely matured style that's kept him in front of younger ears over the years – and the backings are somewhat traditional, but never stiff or cliched. Robert Farnon adds in some strings and chorus bits at times, but some of the best cuts have a jazzier flavor – and even the fuller-styled numbers fall back nicely to let Bennett's vocals dominate up front. Titles include "Christmasland", "I Love The Winter Weather/I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", "Winter Wonderland", "Snowfall", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", "My Favorite Things", and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".

Oscar Brown Jr.Sin & Soul (And Then Some) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1960. Used ... $3.99
Trend-setting vocal work from Oscar Brown Jr – one of the hippest singers of his generation, and a vocalist who really took things to the next level in the 60s! Brown's got a sound that's partially influenced by the vocalese of Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks, and other singers of the 50s – but his groove here is also a bit more fluid and lyrical too – thanks to some great lyrics penned by Oscar, some of which went on to become classics over the years. Like his predecessors, many of the tunes chosen by Brown got their start as jazz instrumentals, but sparkle anew here with fresh lyrics that really liven them up a lot – tales of sin and soul and a lot more, often delivered with a good sense of wit. Titles include great vocal versions of "Dat Dere", "Work Song", and "Afro-Blue", plus some of his great original compositions, like "Brown Baby", "But I Was Cool", and "Rags and Old Iron". The arrangements are great, with a nice jazzy sound – and the group includes the excellent Floyd Morris on piano! CD features 5 bonus tracks that include "Straighten Up & Fly Right", "Forbidden Fruit", "World Of Grey", "Mr Kicks", and "Hazel's Hips". CD

A beautiful, sweetly jazz-based set from LaVerne Butler – and we can't imagine why you'd lose the love for her voice and style, if you've ever found it in the first place – but this is a great place to find it! Bruce Barth is on piano and handles the arrangements, with the great Houston Person on tenor for over half the set – and the group is rounded out by bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Rudy Royston. The intimate, though elegant small combo approach works really well! Includes "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home", "Be A Sweet Pumpkin", "Everybody's Somebody's Fool", "The Bluest Blues", "Travelin' Light", "In My Own Little Corner", "I'll Never Be Free", "Smile" and more.

Ray CharlesRay Charles In Antibes 1961 (with bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961. New Copy 4CD ... $19.99 29.98
A fantastic vintage performance from the legendary Ray Charles – his first concert outside the US, spread out over four different nights at the Antibes Festival in France in 1961! This package brings together the full performance for the first time ever – not only including material from all four nights that Ray played the festival, but also bonus tracks that feature Charles on piano with other singers too. The tunes are a nice mix of the jazzier style of the last few Atlantic albums, with some of the more familiar R&B of Ray's 50s singles – and titles include "Lil Darlin", "The Story", "Georgia On My Mind", "What'd I Say", "My Bonnie", "One Mint Julep", "Hornful Soul", "Let The Good Times Roll", "Tell The Truth", "I Wonder", and "With You On My Mind". Bonus tracks feature material with Lula Reed, Joe Turner, Tommy Ridgely, and Guitar Slim – and the 4CD set features 61 tracks in all. (Soul, Vocalists) CD

✨✧ June ChristySomething Cool (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD

✨✧ Nat King ColeAfter Midnight – The Complete Sessions ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes jazz greats like Harry Edison, Willie Smith, Jual Tizol, and Jack Costanzo. Plus, if that's not enough, this fab CD adds a whopping batch of extra tracks to the original LP – for a total of 18 beauties that sound perfect on a warm summer night, long after the sun has gone down. Titles include "Caravan", "Candy", "What Is There To Say", "You're Looking At Me", and "Blame It On My Youth". Great stuff! CD

✨✧ John Coltrane & Johnny HartmanJohn Coltrane & Johnny Hartman ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at another level, the album's got a great approach to Coltrane's gentler side, one that wasn't showing up on a lot of his Impulse albums of the time. Overall, the album's got an extremely haunting quality, and McCoy Tyner's piano adds as much to Hartman's hip voice as Coltrane's mellow tenor. Titles include some well-chosen moody standards – including "Lush Life", "Dedicated To You", and "Autumn Serenade". (Jazz, Vocalists) CD

Dena DeRoseOde To The Road ... CD
High Note, 2020. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Nice work from a hip singer, and a pretty good pianist too – an artist wise enough to choose tunes that include a few each from Mark Murphy and Bob Dorough, then match the strength of those with some original work of her own! Dena's from that old school generation when jazz singers were expected to match their skills with a good bit of wit and intelligence too – the era of Fran Landesman and Tommy Wolf, or Jackie & Roy – and DeRose does a great job of living up to that legacy – playing piano while singing, in a trio that includes Martin Wind on bass and Matt Wilson on drums – with guest work from Houston Person on tenor, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, and Sheila Wilson on vocals. Titles include "That Second Look", "Cross Me Off Your List", "Ode To The Road", "Nothing Like You", "A Tip Of The Hat", "Small Day Tomorrow", and "I Have The Feeling I've Been Here Before". CD

✨✧ Kurt EllingFlirting With Twilight ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think what you may about this groove-patched hipster – we still think he's one of the best jazz vocalists of our time! Kurt Elling's carrying a torch that few other singers could handle – a direct line back to the genius male jazz vocal work of singers like Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks, armed with the confident emotionality and freely expressive style of the former, and the jazz-based virtuosity and sense of humor of the latter. This recent Blue Note session is very much in Elling's best mode – a bit too sweet in parts, but filled with some great numbers that show him always pushing the envelope, not content to just be a "modern classic" vocalist, as might be said for some of his female contemporaries in the jazz vocal realm. Titles include "Say It", "While You Are Mine", "I'm Thru With Love", "Orange Blossoms In Summertime", "Detour Ahead", "Lil Darlin", and "Easy Living". And sure, we wish there were more original compositions – as on other albums – but Elling really still does a great job with the standards! CD

✨✧ Georgie FameBallad Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few American albums ever issued by Georgie Fame – a great set of tracks from his early CBS years, put together with a package that was bound to appeal to US fans digging the Bonnie & Clyde movie! The work here is a hip mix of jazz, soul, and R&B styles – all served up with that Georgie Fame charm that made his music unlike anyone else's at the time. And although we're not sure, it appears that there's a few tracks here that might not have been issued on LP back in the UK – as the set list features 11 tracks that include "Mellow Yellow", "Bullets La Verne", "This Is Always", "Side By Side", "Blue Prelude", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Ask Me Nice", "When I'm Sixty Four", and "The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde".

Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Hersh HamelHersh Hamel's Song Book – Featuring Art Pepper ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1975. Used ... $9.99
A rare funky jazz outing for saxophonist Art Pepper – recorded in the mid 70s under the leadership of bassist Hersh Hamel! Although Hamel had been working in a variety of jazz styles since the 50s, for this outing he chose to work in a mode that was part soul, part jazz, and very groovy overall! There's a righteous, progressive feel to the record – one that's never too over the top, but which explores some of the hipper sides of the jazz spectrum at the time – and which makes great use of a few female soul vocalists to really send home the message of the tunes. The core group features Hamel on electric bass, Pepper on alto, Pete Robinson on keyboards, and Steve Strazzeri on drums – augmented by singers Linda McCrary, Judy Brown, and Brenda Burns – who sing the words to Hamel's great compositions on the album. The whole thing's wonderful – with a feel that's up there with some of the hippest soul jazz of the time on Muse or Catalyst, but even better, given the vocals. Titles include the slow break tune "Come To Me", plus "Dance Now", "Mr Yes", "Image Before You", and "Feels Good". (Jazz, Vocalists) CD

Lee HazlewoodSomething Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma". Features two bonus tracks – "Moochie Ladeux" and "The Lone Ranger". CD

A mighty nice live performance from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – one that features Oliver Nelson leading the band, soloing on alto, and even writing all the arrangements! Nelson brings the same soulful swing to the record as his famous late 60s backings for American jazz singers – although Kimiko definitely makes the tunes her own, with her unique phrasing – which partly comes from her slightly-accented approach to the English language! Nelson steps out on the instrumental theme "3210" – and other titles include "Guess Who I Saw Today", "Goody Goody", "Go Away Little Boy", "Some Other Day", "It's Alright With Me", and "How Insensitive".

King PleasureSource (Original Moody's Mood/Golden Days) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on jazz-based tunes! The first album's pulled from his Original Moody's Mood For Love set for Prestige, which was itself a compilation and features "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Red Top", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "I'm Gone", "Funk Junction", "You're Crying", "Don't Get Scared", "This Is Always', and "Exclamation Blues". The second LP's the hard to find Goldne Days set, a beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. 21 tracks in all.

Peggy Lee's at Basin Street, but the set's an upbeat, swinging date that's right up there with her studio work for Capitol in the 60s! The album's billed as an "after hours" performance – and it's definitely got the relaxed feel to live up to that promise – a feel that's more small combo jazzy than other Lee work of the period, although it's still got that upbeat punch we love from the Capitol years. The group is directed by Joe Harnell, who also plays piano – and other members include Bob Donovan on flute, Willie Thomas and Phil Sunkel on trumpets, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Chino Pozo on congas and bongos. Titles inlcude "I Got A Man", "The Second Time Around", "Fever", "Moments Like This", "Day In Day Out", and "Them There Eyes". CD also features a bonus track – "Call Me Darling". CD

Groovy groovy groovy! Les Masques were a 60s vocal-oriented Brazilian combo from France, and they had a tight jazzy approach that was similar to Sergio Mendes and Brazil 66! That alone would be enough to make them #1 in our book – but they also get some excellent backing from the Trio Camara, who back the band with some nice organy riffs, and a very tight rhythm section! The whole thing's a great lost bit of Braziliana – with that crossover sound that you'll hear on the best 60s and 70s European recordings of this sort. Includes the great groover "Il Faut Tenir", which has shown up on a few compilations over the years – plus "Mais Un Jour", "Enfer", "Echo", "Un Regard .. Un Sourire", "L'Oiseau", and "Les Filles et Les Garcons". (Brazil, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic record – one of the best jazz vocal records of the 80s, and a real bright spot in an often dim decade for jazz! The set is Carmen Lundy's debut – and it's a masterful self-produced effort that immediately put her in the ranks of the ultra-hip, ultra-soulful jazz crowd – singers like Betty Carter and Dee Dee Bridgewater, both of whom took a lot longer to sound this good than Carmen! The record is set in a perfect setting – Carmen working closely with musicians headed up by brother Curtis on bass, and including soulful players like Bobby Watson, Rene McLean, Cecil Bridgewater, Jon Faddis, and Harry Whitaker. The whole thing's great – the kind of righteous vocal set that few singer ever seem to make this well – and titles include some great originals like "Good Morning Kiss", "Time is Love", and "Perfect Stranger" – plus excellent versions of "Dindi", "Love For Sale", and "The Lamp Is Low".

The album showcases a group named Voices Of The Creative Profile – formed by McKinney to accompany his Creative Profile instrumental group – and the overall style is a great blend of spiritual soul jazz that gives equal time to the voices and instruments in the set. Gwen McKinney heads up the vocal ensemble, and other players on the set include Wendell Harrison on flute, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Billy Turner on percussion, and Ed Pickins on bass. Also features some cool moog from Darryl Dybka – and titles that include "In The Moog", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Dolphin Dance", "Heavenese", "Ode To Africa", "Out Of The Blues", and "Cornerstone".

The record features a great batch of smooth soul arrangements by Mario Sprouse – a blend of jazz and contemporary soul modes that's almost in the same space as Marlena Shaw – and the band backing up Carmen is filled with superstar players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Grover Washington on sax. The whole thing's got that well-crafted feel you'd expect from a Japanese session at the time – and it includes many nice moments, like a cover of "Mister Magic" with some nice breaks – plus "New York State Of Mind", "Sweet Alibis", "Come In From The Rain", "The Masquerade Is Over", and "I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love". 2CD version – featuring the entire album!

A hip little project from the enigmatic Bob Dorough! The group's got a sound that definitely lives up to its name – an approach to jazz that features four recorders in the lead, blown with tones that might be called "medieval" harmony, although there's also plenty of swing to the record too – thanks to rhythm from a trio that features Al Shackman on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Dorough sings just a bit on the record – in that raspy, quirky style we love so much – but most of his contributions are instrumental, blowing in the quartet. There's a haunting sound to the record that's really wonderful – almost exotica at times – and titles include "Nature Boy", "Chloe", "Lady Be Good", "September Song", "Autumn Leaves", and "Mood Indigo".

Mark MurphyWho Can I Turn To? ... CD
Immediate (UK), 1966. Used ... $14.99
Stunningly great album by Mark Murphy, recorded in the UK in the mid-60s for the mostly-rock Immediate label – but certainly one of his best from that decade! The album sees the American jazz singer teaming up with Kenny Napper, Ronnie Scott's bassist, on a set of arrangements that are completely different from those on other Murphy albums – especially his American ones. In fact, the sound and style is very similar to that used on some of the early Scott Walker solo albums – which is no surprise since Napper, in Ronnie Scott's band, backed up Walker during his rare solo live engagements. The album also boasts other British jazz greats – like Tony Coe, Kenny Baker, and Alan Branscombe – and it's got a beautifully airy quality that works perfectly with Murphy's rich, tightly-controlled voice. Titles include "Star Sounds", "You'd Better Love Me", "In Love for The Very First Time", "Talk To Me Baby", "That's What Makes A Girl", and "Who Can I Turn To?". Nice one! CD

Something of an addition to the Verve "songbook" mode of the 50s – but it's also one that's a lot more dynamic than the others, thanks to some very jazzy arrangements from Billy May! The groove here is very upbeat and jazzy – hard-swinging in the manner that May forged with Sinatra over at Capitol, with lots of twists and turns in the backings that really help transform the tunes! Anita's dynamic vocals really match the spirit of the arrangements – and soar out with a quality that's some of her best and boldest at Verve. Titles include "I Love You", "Get Out Of Town", "Just One Of Those Things", "Easy To Love", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Love For Sale". CD also has 6 bonus tracks including "You're The Top", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", "Why Shouldn't I", "From This Moment On", "Love For Sale" and "Just One Of Those Things". CD

Emily, 1975. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Great small combo work from Anita O'Day – done at a time when the singer had maybe faded from the American limelight a bit, but continued to do some really exceptional work for a variety of smaller labels! In fact, we might even say that Anita during this stretch was even hipper than before – as even on some of her classic 50s albums, she maybe still had a bit of the hoke from the big band years – whereas the O'Day on this album is older, mature, and really wonderfully suited to bring the most out of the tunes – all familiar, but handled with spare backings that really let the lady remind us why jazz vocals, when done right, are such a wonderful art! Titles include "After You've Gone", "The Man I Love", "Penthouse Serenade", "My Ship", and "Mean To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Other Dimensions In Music with Fay VictorKaiso Stories ... CD
Silkheart (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Vocalist Fay Victor joins the wonderful group Other Dimensions In Music – for a performance that really helps deepen the sound and knock the whole thing out of the park! Make no mistake, we already love the instrumental side of the group – Roy Campbell on trumpets and other instruments, Daniel Carter on saxes and flute, William Parker on bass, and Charles Downs on drums and percussion – all shifting instruments, and working together in a mode that's very strongly in a legacy that runs from the AACM through the loft jazz generation! But the presence of Victor's voice really adds a whole new layer – contributions from various texts, which are spoken and sung, but in ways that are as unconventional as the music that Campbell and Carter make on their horns. Titles include "An Open Letter", "We Is We Trini", "Saltfish Refried", "Three Friends Advised", "Kitch Goes Home", and "John Gilman Wants Tobacco". (Jazz, Vocalists) CD

✨✧ Don PaulinMe & My Papagayo (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/Sonorama (Germany), 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wild little record from this little-known American singer – a set recorded in Germany at the end of the 60s, with a compelling mix of jazz, bossa, psychedelic, and funky touches! Don's got this weird sort of raspy vocal approach a times – a rumbling style of putting over a lyric that's a nice contrast to the sweeter blend of jazz and Latin instrumentation used in the backdrop! The set features some wonderful work from key talents on the German groove scene at the time – including guitar from Sigi Schwab, and arrangements from Ingfried Hoffmann – both of whom contributed a number of original tunes to the set! Titles include "Danza", "Titicaca", "Ananas", "Inca Uyu", "Blue Bossa", "Duerme Negrito", "Sugar Cane", and "Charangito". Also features 2 bonus cuts – "On The Road Again" and "In My Fantasy". CD

Sun Ra & OthersSpaceship Lullaby ... CD
Atavistic, Mid 50s-Early 60s. Used ... $18.99
It's pretty easy to be skeptical about "recently unearthed" recordings in ANY medium, particularly jazz – but you can always count on the Unheard Music Series – especially when it comes to the vaults of the great Sun Ra! This mid-to-late 50s discovery Spaceship Lullaby features Ra working in a largely unknown guise – with several vocal ensembles from the period! The vocalists and backing musicians include the Nu Sounds, The Cosmic Rays and The Lintels. Similar recordings have previously materialized on extremely rare 7-inch singles, but this is the first full length CD of the material (that we've ever known of, anyway) – one that spans an innovative amalgam of dense, propulsive space jazz/soul backings (almost unbelievably forward-looking for the 50s, but what else would you expect from Ra) and awesomely layered vocals that run from scatting, spoken sci fi weirdness to romantic doo wop harmonies. Ra is on piano with the titanic drummer Robert Barry on the back end – and a period incarnation of the Arkestra even backs the Cosmic Rays on a couple of tracks. What can we say? This is one of the greatest Sun Ra discoveries to come into our perspective in years; jaw droppingly cool stuff from one of the most jaw droppingly cool musicians who ever lived on this planet or any of the others! Tracks are divided by the performing groups: The Nu Sounds cuts comprise the majority, and include "Stranger In Paradise", "Honey", "Black Sky & Blue Moon", "A Foggy Day", "A Perfect Counter", "Wordless Piece", "I Was Wrong", "Louise" and lots of others. There are five Lintels cuts, including "C'est Ci Bon", "Blue Moon", "Baby Please Be Mine". Cosmic Rays cuts include "Africa", "Somebody's In Love", "Bye Bye" and more. 37 tracks in all!

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronFree Will ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style".

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronWinter In America ... LP
Strata East, 1974. Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A beautiful jazzy classic, and perhaps Gil Scott-Heron's most perfectly realized album ever! The record has a completely sophisticated jazzy approach – one that's miles ahead from even Gil's previous work on Flying Dutchman, and which shows him to be one of the most distinctive and emotive vocalists in soul and jazz over the past 25 years. The album contains the monster dancefloor track "The Bottle", which went on to be a huge hit in many versions – but it's also got loads of gentle, fragile songs (the kind of work by Gil that we like the best, and which show him as a deeply emotional and complicated artist, with a richness that still yearns to be tapped fully. Classics include "Peace Go With You Brother" and the original version of "Your Daddy Loves You". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Vinyl has numerous marks and worn grooves that play with noise on "Peace Go With You, Brother" and "A Very Precious Time". Cover has heavy ring & edge wear, small center split in the spine, and half split bottom seam.)

Elizabeth ShepherdParkdale ... CD
Do Right (Canada), 2008. Used ... $7.99
A killer second album from Elizabeth Shepherd – every bit as wonderful as her first, and with a deeper sound overall! As before, the grooves are a wonderful blend of Shepherd's vocals and piano work – sometimes acoustic, sometimes on Fender Rhodes – supported by some highly rhythmic bass, drums, and percussion – as simple as they are soulful, and always with a subtle sort of groove that's totally great! The album's quite a uniquely jazzy accomplishment, and each new track is a delight – a surprisingly simple approach, and one that's extremely refreshing in an era of too-overdone recordings. Shepherd's songwriting is wonderful – fresh, and never cliched or cloying – and her vocals have a style that's somewhat dreamy, but never lazy – always as soulful as the grooves from the instrumentation, and recorded with wonderful clarity by Nostalgia 77. Titles include "Shining Tear Of The Sun", "Parkdale", "Let Me Be", "Higher Ground", "Long As You're Living", "Sicilienne", "Con Alma", and "Mirror Living". (New Grooves, Vocalists) CD

Nina SimoneFodder On My Wings ... LP
Carrere/Verve, 1982. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
An overlooked album from the legendary Nina Simone – recorded in Paris in the early 80s, and not circulated as much as some of her records from the 60s and 70s – but every bit as compelling in its own sort of way! Nina's working here with a greater array of global elements than on previous recordings – very much in that way that the French scene was embracing sounds from the Caribbean and African cultures in these post-colonial years, and using them to forge a wealth of wonderful new styles in the studios of Paris. The approach is still jazz-based, but with lots of earthy percussion, including some handled by Nina with her own piano work – a mode that's not foisted on Simone by another producer, but arranged and conceived by the lady herself. Lyrics are in French and English, and titles include "I Sing Just To Know That I'm Alive", "They Took My Hand", "Stop", "Liberian Calypso", "Vous Etes SEuls Mais Je Desire Etre Avec Vous", "Fodder In Her Wings", "Thandewye", "Heaven Belongs To You", and "Le Peuple En Suisse".

✨✧ Nina SimoneSingle Woman ... CD
Elektra, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great later set from Nina Simone – quite sensitive at times, and with a different feel than some of her 70s work – but one that's still pure Simone all the way through! There's a return-to-classic feel going here – the sort of album that Jimmy Scott and others were making in the same early 90s stretch – when record labels realized that all the clunkier modes vocalists were saddled with in the 80s just weren't working, and that everyone was much better off with warmer strings and jazzier instrumentation pulled from years past. The approach gives the album a more classic jazz vocal style than some of Simone's other work, especially on the ballads – and tunes were arranged by Nina, Richard Evans, Jeremy Lubbock, and John Clayton. Titles include "A Single Woman", "Lonesome Cities", "Papa Can You Hear Me", "Just Say I Love Him", "The More I See You", and "Love's Been Good To Me". CD

✨✧ Frank SinatraRing A Ding Ding (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Concord, Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
Frank's first album for his own label – Reprise catalog number 1001 (originally), a number that must have made Sinatra proud! The album's got a really swinging feel that befits the title, and which follows in the best Capitol work by Nelson Riddle. Things are very jazzy and upbeat, thanks to arrangements by Johnny Mandel – and the set list includes loads of great numbers that Frank carries off to perfection! Titles include "Ring A Ding Ding", "The Coffee Song", "Let's Face The Music & Dance", "Let's Fall In Love", "A Fine Romance", and "You & The Night & The Music". This remastered 50th Anniversary edition includes 2 bonus tracks: "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart", a previously unreleased "Have You Met Miss Jones" – a 10+ minutes long outtake version! CD

Frank SinatraSinatra's Swingin Session (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1960. Used ... $5.99
A Swingin Session indeed – as Frank steps out with Nelson Riddle on one of his last great albums for Capitol! The record's got the bounce and lilt of Frank's earlier gems with Riddle – a sly mix of jazz and strings that's every bit the best fit for Blue Eyes' vocals at the end of the 50s as it was back when he and Riddle cooked up the comeback sound earlier in the decade – and as before, although the tunes are mostly familiar, they're spun out by Frank as if they're his own – phrased beautifully, punched up nicely, and swung in just the right way to fit the spirit of the session! Titles include "I Concentrate On You", "Blue Moon", "When You're Smiling", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Always", and "September In The Rain". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Sentimental Baby", "Hidden Persuasion", and "Ol MacDonald". CD

✨✧ Erik TaggRendezvous ... LP
Poker/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warmly crafted vocal work from Erik Tagg – a Dutch singer who'd relocated to Texas by the time of this mid 70s set – singing here in English with some nicely jazzy backings on the set! There's a style here that's a bit singer/songwriter, but somewhat deeper too – one that has a nicely smooth glide, and a slight undercurrent of soul at times – particularly in the Free Soul mode, and all the bright colors and good feelings that reference might imply! Tagg's lyrics are decent, but the real appeal of the set is the overall sound – the blend of his well-produced vocals with the heavy keyboards in the instrumentation – often served up with a smooth and groovy quality that reminds us of much bigger-name sets from the LA scene of the time. Titles include "Got To Be Lovin You", "Rendezvous", "Fancy Meeting You", "Marja's Tune", "Babies", "Soul Touch", and "Life Goes On". (Rock, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

Aaron Tesser & The New Jazz AffairLookin Ahead ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2008. Used ... $8.99
A really great record, despite the somewhat mundane cover image – a set that might be more at home on Schema Records than Irma, given its warm jazzy feel and tight modal grooves! Instrumentation is mostly acoustic, although there's a bit of beats in the rhythms too – and the album sparkles wonderfully with jazzy vocals that light things up beautifully! Aaron Tesser leads the group on tenor sax, but the real star to our ears is vocalist Fabrizio Rispoli – who sings on nearly all the tracks, often with a style that's a bit like that of Mario Biondi – soulful and scatting, with echoes of some of our favorite male jazz singers of the 60s and 70s. Elisabeth Geel sings on a few more tracks, with a slightly sweeter female approach, but one that's still quite strong – and other instrumentation includes alto sax, trumpet, guitar, and plenty of great percussion. Titles include "My Song", "Oko Bop", "Instant Love", "Stella", "Everlasting Rose", "You Me & Jazz", "Feel", "Full Sail Soulship", and "Faraway". (New Grooves, Vocalists) CD

An overlooked gem from Mel Torme's years at Verve – an album dedicated to the music of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, set to some very upbeat, jazzy backings from Johnny Mandel! The album's quite swinging at points – and given the choice of material, Mel really breaks from the familiar – stretching out nicely to reach the spirit of the famous leaders, but always with that tremendous sense of tone! Titles include "Down For Double", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "I Like The Sunrise", "Reminiscing In Tempo", "Oh What A Night For Love", and "In The Evening". CD

✨✧ Shigeko ToyaShigeko Toya With The Imada Masaru Trio ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
An unusual little session from early 70s Japan – one that features some jazz vocals from Shigeko Toya, but also a fair bit of piano as well – set alongside backing from the trio of Masaru Imada, who plays organ on the numbers that don't feature Toya on the piano! If that sounds confusing, it's not meant to be – and is more a reflection of the many-voiced style of the set – because the record's less a vocal album than kind of a three-pointed set that features some straight piano numbers, some with torchy vocals, and others that have the organ bringing in a bluesier tone. Toya's vocal style is a bit unusual, and not for the uninitiated – but it does make her stand out in a world of straighter Japanese singers from the time. Titles include "Tadd's Blues", "Hymn To Freedom", "Yesterday", "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man", and "Call Me Irresponsible". (Jazz, Vocalists) CD

✨✧ Sarah Vaughan & Her TrioSarah Vaughan At Mister Kelly's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Sarah Vaughan's best albums from the 50s – a swinging live set caught at Chicago's Mister Kelly's night club – and recorded with very small combo backing! The album's a great contrast to some of Sarah's more fully arranged sets of the era – and it features piano from Jimmy Jones, bass from Richard Davis, and drums from Roy Haynes – all served up in a great blend of sensitive modes on the ballads, and more swinging styles on the upbeat numbers. There's a bit more of the latter, given the swinging feel of the set. The best part of this CD, though, is that it adds 11 extra tracks to the original album – for a whopping 20 tracks of beautiful live jazz vocals. Titles include "September In The Rain", "Alone", "Dancing In The Dark", "Lucky In Love", "Dream", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Just A Gigolo". CD

The album's got a good group of Mercury jazz players – like Clark Terry, Paul Quinichette, Cecil Payne, Wynton Kelly, and Jimmy Cobb – all playing in a laidback intimate setting which works very nicely for Dinah's soulful vocals. Titles include "Blue Gardenia", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "I Could Write A Book", and "Easy Living". A bit Billie Holiday-ish, sure – but nice! CD

Quincy knows how to mix just the right doses of straight jazz and tighter vocal arrangements – and Dinah's very comfortably at home in the setting, stretching out with a great sense of soul that really stands out.

The album's awash in rootsy, dusky tones – and has an earthiness that's clearly inspired by older blues, but expressed by Cassandra in voicings that are more clearly jazz-based. Titles include an unusual range of covers – used in this way many years before the Starbucks generation of vocalists made it common place – with covers that include "Last Train To Clarksville", "Harvest Moon", "Skylark", and "Love Is Blindness" – alongside originals that include "Until", "A Little Warm Death", "Find Him", "Solomon Song", and "Memphis".

The set's got a warm, jazzy feel – lots of keyboards and piano in the backings, but done in a way that lifts up the voice of Lizz on a pillow of soul and spirituality. Tracks build from slow beginnings to a rich array of tones and colors – done in a style that's emotive, but subtly so. Titles include nice covers of "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly" and "Afro Blue" – plus "Soon As I Get Home", "Salt", "Fire", "Eternity", "Lead The Way", and "Silence". (Neo Soul, Vocalists) CD

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99 29.99
Famous songs from French films – served up here in a massive 3CD set that combines the biggest moments from both pre and postwar cinema! These songs are mostly vocal numbers, not instrumental themes – which makes the package a bit different than other soundtrack collections, and which also ties the evolution of cinema in France to the evolution of chanson – huge transformations that happen in a really short space – and which take place in terms of style, mood, meaning, and method! Material of the 30s tends to be a bit more sentimental or romantic, the middle period shows a mixture of modern moments with more traditional ones, and things really take off in the 50s – as bits of jazz and other styles come into the mix. 60 tracks in all, with notes in French and English – and work by Charles Trenet, Colette Mars, Suzy Delair, Brigitte Bardot, Georges Brassens, Edith Piaf, Jeanne Moreau, Arletty, Jacques Pills, Martine Carol, Juliette Greco, Henri Garat, Jean Mumiere, Fernandel, Tino Rossi, Yves Montand, Lucien Jeunesse, Philippe Clay, Mouloudji, Magali Noel, Corinne Marchand, Hildegard Neff, and many others.
