Jose JamesNo Beginning No End 2 ... CD
Rainbow Blonde, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Really mindblowing work from Jose James – an artist we loved right from his very first record, but one who has us completely over the top with this record – a set that may well push James from the soul underground into firmly classic territory – the sort of space that will have the record standing strong with soul classics from decades back, and for a long time to come! Jose's tremendous vocally, but there's also an extra-special spirit to some of these tunes – one that's still very strongly in the hands of the man himself, even though James opens the door for plenty of guests – a lineup that includes Ledisi, Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, Aloe Blacc, Lizz Wright, Eric Truffaz, and others – not the kind of guests who overwhelm and take a too-strong turn in the spotlight, but the right sort of addition to the core sound. Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Just The Way You Are" – plus "Turn Me Up", "I Need Your Love", "Saint James", "Take Me Home", "Oracle", "Feels So Good", "I Found A Love", and "You Know What I Do".

✨✧ Lizz WrightDreaming Wide Awake ... CD
Verve, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second outing from vocalist Lizz Wright – done in the same sweetly folksy style as her debut, but in a way that seems to have even more of a focus overall. The backing on the set is especially nice – mostly just spare keyboards, bass, and drums, plus some great work on acoustic guitar by Chris Bruce – and titles include versions of "A Taste Of Honey", "Stop", "Old Man", "Wake Up Little Sparrow", and "I'm Confessin" – plus the originals "Hit The Ground", "Trouble", and "Dreaming Wide Awake".

Lizz WrightFreedom & Surrender ... CD
Concord, 2015. Used ... $8.99
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".

Lizz WrightSalt ... CD
Verve, 2003. Used ... $6.99
A sweet young jazz singer – steeped in the traditions of Dee Dee Bridgewater and Dianne Reeves, striking out on her own in a really solid debut album! 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

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!

✨✧ VariousSpiritual Jazz 6 – Vocals – Modal Esoteric & Progressive Jazz Vocals From Around The World 1960 to 1986 ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great look at a very important side of spiritual jazz in the 60s and 70s – the evolution of jazz vocals, to a point when singers like Abbey Lincoln, Andy Bey, or Leon Thomas brought a whole new sound and soul to the spectrum of jazz! This wonderful package covers lots of key moments from that time – and also unearths some great rare tracks, too – really showing the way that singers of this period moved far far past the styles of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald in the generation before – often using their voices with the same unbridled power as the musicians in these groups, serving up some righteous lyrics and politics in the process! The collection might well be our favorite in this great series so far – and titles include "Imani" by EW Wainwright, "Tears For Johannesburg" by Max Roach, Colors" by Norman Riley, "African Violet" by Sadaka, "The Ladder" by The Singers & Musicians Of Washington High School, "Rain Forest" by Dr Haki R Mahubuti, "African Sunshine" by Eddie Gale, "Reunion (edit)" by Byron Morris & Unity, "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz Ntu Troop, "John Coltrane" by Clifford Jordan, and "Spirits Up Above" by Vibration Society. (Funky Compilations, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
