✨✧ Mel Torme & George ShearingVintage Year (bonus tracks) ... CD
Concord, 1987. Used ... $4.99
A key pairing of vocalist Mel Torme and pianist George Shearing – two aging jazz artists who really helped re-ignite each others' careers in the 80s! The format here takes Torme back to the best years of his jazz roots – and features spare backing from Shearing's trio, at a level that's intimate, but never too sleepy or prone with cliche. Shearing's touch on the keys is wonderfully sensitive – never just standard backing to a singer – and in a way, he brings out a new sense of depth in Torme's vocals, one that never showed itself so strongly, or so personally in the past. And best of all, at the time of this recording, the duo haven't yet lapsed into the cliches that would later mar their pairing – and instead really work together beautifully in a fresh sense of discovery and joy in each others' company. Titles include "The Midnight Sun", "Someday I'll Find You", "Whisper Not/Love Me Or Leave Me", "Since I Fell For You", "Out Of This World", and "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Bittersweet" and "The Folks Who Live On The Hill". CD

Concord, 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
An all-star tribute to Ella Fitzgerald – a special show recorded live at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, in celebration of what would have been her 100th Birthday!

Patti Austin sings "A Tisket A Tasket" and "When I Get Low I Get High", Andra Day sings "Ain't Misbehavin", Ayo & Afro Blue perform "Oh Lady Be Good", Lizz Wright sings "Love You Madly" and "The Nearness Of You", Cassandra Wilson sings "Cry Me A River", and a few other numbers feature different pairings of the artists involved.

✨✧ Lizz WrightFreedom & Surrender ... CD
Concord, 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lizz Wright just keeps on growing and growing as a singer – past the jazz and soul of her roots, to a space that easily has the singer reaching out to a much greater range of ears, but all while keeping true to her style! There's definitely a jazzy heart at the core of the record – and most instrumentation is from a small combo – but the expression in Wright's vocals moves into very personal territory that's very much her own – feeling, but never overdone – catchy, but never cloying – and set up in a balance that maintains all the class and poise we've always loved in the singer. Highlights include a duet with Gregory Porter on "Right Where You Are", and a nice cover of Nick Drake's "River Man" – and other titles include "Here & Now", "Surrender", "Blessed The Brave", "Freedom", "The Game", "Lean In", "Somewhere Down The Mystic", and "Real Life Painting".

✨✧ Al JarreauAl Jarreau & The Metropole Orkest Live ... CD
Concord, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records we've heard from Al Jarreau in years – a set that features his incredible vocals backed by the Metropol Orkest – a large ensemble who help the legendary singer find a whole new sort of groove! The bold backings are really wonderful – full and flowing, with loads of warm jazz energy that seems to push Al's vocals even more than before – giving them a force that's hardly what you might expect from the aging Jarreau, and really helping to recover that jazzy core that's always made his singing so special. Many of the tunes here are older numbers, but really given an unusual twist in the process – overflowing with a live, ebullient quality that comes through from the very first note. Titles include "Flame", "Agua De Beber", "Cold Duck", "Jacaranda Bougainvillea", "We're In This Love Together", "Midnight Sun", "Something That You Said", "After All", "Spain", and "Scootcha Booty".

✨✧ Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music – Vols 1 & 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Concord, 1962. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant work throughout – both of Ray Charles' classic country albums in a single package! Volume one is the stuff of legends – and what seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius – the most successful album of his career and a bona-fide number one hit that rode the charts for years and years! Ray's voice works perfectly with the material, and thanks to soulful arrangements by Gil Fuller, Marty Paich, and Gerald Wilson, the whole thing comes off to perfection. Titles include "You Don't Know Me", "I Can't Stop Lovin You", "Careless Love", "You Win Again", and "Worried Mind". Volume 2 is the second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul! As the title implies, Ray's singing a host of tunes best known from the country side of the spectrum – but he's working here with arrangements by LA jazzers Marty Paich and Gerald Wilson, to completely re-cast the tunes into the "modern sounds" mode promised in the title. The result is wonderful – a style that gave Ray's career a whole new boost, and a genre that was a perfect foil for his rich bluesy mode of singing. Titles include "No Letter Today", "Take These Chains From My Heart", "Teardrops In My Heart", "Making Believe", and "Hang Your Head In Shame". (Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rosemary ClooneyAt Long Last ... CD
Concord, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprising later gem from Rosemary Clooney – a record that has her working with a late version of the Count Basie Band, and really hitting a very swinging groove! The group at this point is directed by Grover Mitchell, and the arrangements have that old Basie bounce – a style that Rosie matches nicely with a sense of energy we might not have expected in these later years, with all the punctuated "zing" that we liked in earlier jazz sessions. Titles include "Just In Time", "Like Someone In Love", "Lullaby Of Broadway", "Old Devil Moon", "I Got Rhythm", "Gypsy In My Soul", "If Swing Goes I Go Too", and "Seems Like Old Times". CD

✨✧ Keely SmithKeely Sings Sinatra ... CD
Concord, 1991. Used ... Out Of Stock
Keely Smith steps out at a more dynamic level than most of her solo recordings we remember from the old days – doing a pretty great job of here of paying tribute to Frank Sinatra during the height of his years at Capitol Records! The backings are lively and swinging – handled by the Frankie Capp Orchestra with a blend of strings and jazz that's right at home with the older Sinatra backings by Nelson Riddle or Billy May. But nicely, Keely doesn't just copy the modes of the old days – and instead, takes these tunes at her own level – swinging them a bit differently than Frank, but still with his classic sense of power and punch! The CD features a great introduction by Frank Sinatra Jr, and a whopping 20 titles in all – with tunes that include "Angel Eyes", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "I've Got A Crush On You", "Night & Day", "South Of The Border", "Without A Song", "All The Way", and "I've Got You Under My Skin".

✨✧ Esperanza Spalding12 Little Spells (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Concord, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
12 sublime spells from Esperanza Spaulding – with 4 more spells added to the mix for the physical release of the album! The record's got Esperanza really blowing us away – not content to just stay in the safer territory that she virtually invented a few years back, and which could sustain her entire career – and instead coming across with a mode that's more complicated, more edgey, and more message-oriented than ever before – all awash with a pastiche of sonic colors that's echoed by the image on the cover! Spaulding's vocals just seem to get better and better as the years go on – but she also leads strongly with her basslines on most numbers too – while the production really lets some of the more cosmic-styled elements flow around the edges. Titles include "12 Little Spells", "To Tide Us Over", "Til The Next Full", "Thang", "You Have To Dance", "Now Know", "All Limbs Are", "Readying To Rise", and "Dancing The Animal". Bonus "spells" include "Lest We Forget", "How To", "Move Many", and "Ways Together". (Neo Soul, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ernestine AndersonErnestine Anderson Swings The Penthouse ... CD
High Note, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Rare live work from Ernestine Anderson – recorded in Seattle during the same early 60s stretch when Anderson was recording for Mercury Records! The performance is quite different than the Anderson of later years – more jazz overall, and maybe a bit more composed – with less of the bluesy inflections that Ernestine opened up during her rise to fame on Concord Records, and maybe more of a cool, classy style that reminds us a bit of Sarah Vaughan on her great live sides for Mercury. The tracks are relatively short, but phrased wonderfully – and backing is by a small combo, led by pianist Dick Palombi – on titles that include "Angel Eyes", "It Could Happen To You", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Time After Time", "Just In Time", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

✨✧ Gregory PorterAll Rise ... CD
Blue Note, 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A heck of a step forward for Gregory Porter – and we're stunned to say that, because he's already had so many great steps forward in his career! Gregory's already been a hell of a singer for years – we've loved him since the very first note he ever recorded – but with a record like this, he continues to rise into the stratosphere of a rare few singers who can transcend both their roots and their genres – with the kind of trans-generational music that will have folks listening to this set for decades – and around the world, in so many different ways! The All Rise in the title is very fitting – as this is definitely a set to lift up the world – with titles that include "Mr Holland", "Concorde", "Dad Gone Thing", "Revival", "Merchants Of Paradise", "Long List Of Troubles", "Everything You Touch Is Gold", "Merry Go Round", "Thank You", and "Phoenix".
