Ernestine AndersonLive From Concord To London ... CD
Concord, 1978. Used ... $9.99
70s live material from singer Ernestine Anderson – half from the Concord Jazz Festival, half from a London performance at Ronnie Scott's – hence the title! The first half has this swinging jazz festival vibe – Ernestine really reaching out to win over the crowd with her charms, and backing by a core trio with Hank Jones on piano, occasionally expanded into a bigger ensemble. The London tracks are a bit more intimate, and feature a trio with John Horler on piano – and some especially great phrasing from Anderson. Titles include "Stormy Monday", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "I Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Love For Sale", and a long "Ellington Medley". CD

Tania MariaConcord Jazz Heritage Series ... CD
Concord, 1980s/Early 90s. Used ... $4.99
Wonderful work from singer Tania Maria – an extended selection of some of her best cuts recorded for Concord Records! Maria first got her start in Brazil, then recorded in France, but eventually found a very welcome home in the California climate of Concord Records – the Bay Area label who had a very open ear for Tania's blend of bossa and jazz, and her very unique approach to singing! Most numbers here feature warm instrumentation, tightly grooving rhythms, and Maria's great mixture of scat vocals and straight lyrics – a mode she virtually invented back in the 70s, and which so many other artists have copied in later years. CD features 12 tracks in all – including "Eruption", "Bela Be Bela", "Euzinha", "I Can Do It", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Funky Tamborim", "Come With Me", "Comecar De Novo", and "Sangria".

Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
ABC/Concord, 1962. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Brilliant work throughout – both of Ray Charles' classic country albums on a single CD 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) CD

✨✧ Kurt Elling1619 Broadway – The Brill Building Project ... CD
Concord, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
Kurt Elling turns his talents towards the music of the Brill Building – completely transforming a host of pop and soul classics in the process! The songs are familiar, but the music's got all the careful balance of some of Elling's best records in recent years – definitely jazz all the way through, with sparkling arrangements that really work beautifully with Kurt's unique vocals – in ways that push these tunes way past their roots, and show how strongly Elling can bring new feelings out of a song – even with numbers that are much more iconic than his usual fare. Titles include "So Far Away", "Shoppin For Clothes", "A House Is Not A Home", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "On Broadway", "Come Fly With Me", and "You Send Me". CD

✨✧ Dave FrishbergGetting Some Fun Out Of Life ... LP
Concord, 1977. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dave Frishberg's always getting some fun out of life – given the way he pens these witty little tunes, and sings them with a hell of a lot of charm! And this album's one to feature Frishberg at all his charming best – still with the jaunty, edgey qualities we love so much in Oaklahoma Toad, but turned back more towards more traditional jazz elements too – all set nicely into a small combo jazz mode, with help from Bob Findley on trumpet and Marshall Royal on alto – both horn players who give the album a fleshed-out feel that's a nice change from some of Dave's more piano/vocal-based records. A number of the tunes are instrumental – with Frishberg on piano – and titles include "Lotus Blossom", "Dear Bix", "Violet Blue", "Old Man Harlem", "Save It Pretty Mama", "Alligator Crawl", and "In A Mist".

Dave Frishberg with Al Cohn & Bob BrookmeyerYou're A Lucky Guy ... LP
Concord, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A great 70s set from vocalist Dave Frishberg – recorded with a relaxed, easygoing style that's perfect for his vocals! Dave plays piano almost as much as he sings – and on some tracks, instrumental modes dominate the first part of the tunes, then Frishberg's voice comes in and really increases the charm with his raspy, uniquely personal phrasing. But even the instrumental moments are great, thanks to solos from Al Cohn on tenor and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone – on titles that include "The Underdog", "Saratoga Hunch", "Cheerful Little Earful", "Truckin", "P Town", "I Surrender Dear", and "If Dreams Come True".

✨✧ Jazzmeia HornLove & Liberation ... CD
Concord, 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We really loved Jazzmeia Horn on her debut, but this time around she really knocks it out of the park – to a point where we're ready to list her among our top few favorite jazz vocalists – a short list that includes Betty Carter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Shirley Horn! We're not easy with praise like that – but in this case, it's very well-deserved – as the record is one of those jazz vocal sets that comes along once in a blue moon – all original material by the singer, handled with a soulful, soaring style that's made even better by the small combo on the set – a great group that features Victor Gould on piano, Stacy Dillard on tenor, Josh Evans on trumpet, Jamison Ross on drums, and Ben Williams on bass. Horn's got an ability to both deliver a straight lyric with just the right mix of soul and emotion, and take off on jazz-styled flights as well – and her sense of inflection is amazing – at once very old school, like few "jazz" singers can do these days – but also instantly personal and contemporary. Titles include "Free Your Mind", "Out The Window", "Only You", "When I Say", "Legs & Arms", "Reflections Of My Heart", and "I Thought About You". CD

✨✧ Quiana LynellLittle Love ... CD
Concord, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gorgeous Concord debut from New Orleans singer Quiana Lynell! She's backed up here by an impressive group of jazz players including Cyrus Chestnut, Ed Cherry and others, but it's Quiana's beautiful voice and lovely take on timeless songcraft that make this one so special. Includes takes on songs as varied as Leroy Hutson & Donny Hathaway's "Tryin' Times", the Gershwins' "They All Laughed" as a duet with Jamison Ross, Irma Thomas's "Hip Shakin' Momma'' and more, all done in an upbeat jazzy setting cut in just a couple days, giving it the right blend of tightly-done yet still a bit spontaneous. Other tracks include "We Are", "Move Me No Mountains", "Come Sunday/I Wish I Knew (How It Would Feel To Be Free)", "Just A Little Lovin' Early In The Mornin'", "You Hit The Spot", "What Is Love" and "Sing Out March On".

✨✧ Tania Maria And The Viva Brazil QuartetLive At The Blue Note ... CD
Concord, 2002. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning live set from Tania Maria – recorded with her Viva Brazil combo in a mode that's very similar to her classic recordings from 70s France! The sound here is great – Tania on keyboards and vocals, with backing only from bass, drums, and percussion – a spare framework that allows Tania to groove in a free and breezy way over the album's long tracks. The result is an instant classic – one of Tania's best records in years, and a delight throughout, especially if you dig her older albums! Titles include "Granada", "Quase", "Funky Tamborim", "Florzinha", "E Carnaval", and "Valen". (Brazil, Vocalists) CD

✨✧ Carmen McRaeFine & Mellow – Live At Birdland West ... CD
Concord, 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mighty nice setting for Carmen McRae, and a bit different than usual too – especially given that the backing group is a pretty soulful tenor/organ combo! Jack McDuff handles the Hammond, and Red Holloway plays both tenor and alto, with some nice comping from Phil Upchurch on guitar in the group – and this mix of hip players gives the set a more soulful swing than some other McRae dates from the time – and from other times as well – almost going for the feel of some of the 60s Etta Jones sets on Prestige. Titles include "Black & Blue", "My Handy Man Ain't Handy No More", "Fine & Mellow", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry", and "One More Chance". CD

✨✧ Jamison RossAll For One ... CD
Concord, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jamison Ross is a drummer at heart, but he's also turning into a hell of a singer who seems ready to help the music of New Orleans find a great new space of its own – as he works here in a sweet small combo set that mixes his voice with grooves that draw together strong currents of classic funk, soul, and jazz! Ross takes up a few classics on the set, but he also sounds even better on his own music – these new songs that bring a sense of personality that we didn't hear on his previous record, while still balancing things out with those funkier moments we know in his music too. Titles include "Unspoken", "Mellow Good Time", "Everybody's Cryin Mercy", "Away", "Tears & Questions", "Safe In The Arms Of Love", and "Keep On". CD

Esperanza Spalding12 Little Spells (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Concord, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
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) CD

✨✧ Cal Tjader & Carmen McRaeHeat Wave ... CD
Concord, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In our opinion, Carmen always sounds best when she's singing with a small jazz combo backing her up – which is why we dig this tasty set from the early 80s, recorded with a great group led by Cal! The album's got some nice Latin touches – thanks to piano by Mark Levin, and conga work by Poncho Sanchez – and tunes on the record are a mix of standards and a few more interesting numbers, all delivered with a nice light groove. Titles include "Besame Mucho", "Heat Wave", "All In Love Is Fair", "Evil Ways", "Love", "The Visit", and "Speak Low". (Jazz, Vocalists) CD
