✨✧ Bobby VintonVery Merry Christmas – The Complete Epic Christmas Collection ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, 1964. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Pure pop from the Polish prince – a classic Christmas set issued during the height of Bobby Vinton's 60s years on Epic Records! The album's got this quality that makes similar use of Vinton's vocals as some of the Johnny Mathis magic on similar Christmas records – a style that still echoes the clarity and punch of his pop recordings, but also brings in a bit of majesty befitting the season – cast in fuller arrangements from Stan Applebaum, Ray Ellis, and Hugo Winterhalter! The song selection is surprisingly nice – with some unusual songs that make the album a real standout – including a great version of Burt Bacharach's "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle", plus "Dearest Santa", "The Greatest Gift", "Peppermint Stick Parade", "Three Wise Men Wise Men Three", "The Christmas Tree", "Christmas Angel", and "Christmas Chopsticks". CD features the full Very Merry Christmas album – plus bonus tracks "My Christmas Prayer", "Silver Bells", "Winter Love", "O Holy Night", "Kissin Christmas", and "Christmas Eve In My Home Town".

Georgie FameShorty ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences! Georgie's still got his Mose Allison-inspired vocal style, but the band behind him is a lot more open-ended, and grooves along freely in these great organ riffing rhythms – open-ended and very swinging on some numbers, but in a way that's different from Fame's rougher-edged roots. Titles include "Oliver's Gone", "Somebody Stole My Thunder", "Fully Booked", "Inside Story", and "Seventh Son". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Betty CarterLet's Fall In Love – The Gigi Gryce/Ray Bryant/Richard Wess Sessions (Modern Sound Of/Social Call/Meet Betty Carter) ... CD
Gambit (Spain), 1955/1956/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of early work by Betty Carter – key early sessions from the 50s, all packaged together on one CD! The bulk of the collection – the "Ray Bryant" and "Gigi Gryce" components – features Carter's work for Epic in the mid 50s, sides recorded for the album Meet Betty Carter & Ray Bryant, plus other rare ones that were later collected on the Social Call album! The set features some sublime tunes arranged by Gigi Gryce – with a floating jazzy style that works perfectly with Betty's incredible voice – plus others with backings by Ray Bryant's combo, and a few more that feature Ray's group playing without Betty's vocals. Betty's voice is already fantastic – even at this early point in her career – with an amazing range of expression, and a jazz-based approach that's different from most of her generation. Titles include "Social Call", "Thou Swell", "Frenesi", "Run Away", "Tell Him I Said Hello", "Can't We Be Friends", "Sneaking Around", and "Let's Fall In Love". Added to these is material from the album The Modern Sound Of Betty Carter – a 1960 session recorded with large group arrangements by Richard Wess, and a nicely swinging, easily jazzy feel! The album is one of Carter's more obscure sessions, and it's one of the few from the old days to really capture her jazzy vocals well in a large group setting. As always, Betty handles the material with a great deal of class, and an incredible sense of poise and emotion. The set list is nice, too, and includes many lesser-known tracks – like "For You", "Jazz (Ain't Nothin' But Soul)", "Don't Weep For the Lady", "My Reverie", and "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire".
