✨✧ Chet BakerIt Could Happen To You – Chet Baker Sings (180 gram mono pressing) (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Riverside, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A classic album from Chet – and one that's got a perfect mix of vocal and instrumental moments, of the sort you don't find easily on other albums! Chet plays trumpet and sings, and is backed by Kenny Drew, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones – a different style of group from his west coast ... (Jazz, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Eddie JeffersonLetter From Home (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The beginning of a whole new chapter of greatness for singer Eddie Jefferson – a record that took his older style of putting words to jazz solos, and updated it nicely for a new generation in the 60s! Eddie's got a rootsy look on the cover, but the sound here is snappingly hip and ... read more CD

✨✧ Bev KellyLove Locked Out ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first Riverside album by Bev Kelly – an obscure ice-blond singer from the late 50s, with a sound that's much more in keeping with some of the vocalists on the Bethlehem label, than the few singers who cut sides for Riverside. Bev's got the great fortune to be working here with Jimmy ... read more CD

✨✧ Abbey LincolnAbbey Is Blue ... CD
Riverside, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
Key early work by Abbey – no so much the "blue" album you'd guess from the title, but a session that's filled with the kind of anger and emotion that makes us love her so much when she's this good! The group here is very hip – an ensemble brought to the date by her then-partne ... read more CD

Abbey LincolnThat's Him! ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $4.99
One of Abbey Lincoln's earliest albums – an all star session recorded with backing by Kenny Dorham, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Max Roach! Abbey's still pretty straight at this point – singing a variety of wispy love songs and emotional tunes – but she's also ... read more CD

✨✧ Mark MurphyRah ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work by Mark Murphy – a set that's different than the cool breeziness of his 70s work, and done with an approach that's a lot hipper than most of his 60s contemporaries! Ernie Wilkins handles the arrangements, and there's a rollicking soul jazz groove here that's a bit unusual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue label pressing with silver text, microphone logo, and deep groove. Back cover has a small note in pencil in one corner, but is great overall.)

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $4.99
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the ... read more CD

✨✧ OdettaOdetta & The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early early work from Odetta – still done in the folksy mode you'd expect from other records of the 60s, but also with a slight flavor of trad jazz too – thanks to the presence of some great musicians on the date! The group features some standout horn work from Buck Clayton on trumpet, ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Teri ThorntonDevil May Care ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums from singer Teri Thornton – a jazz vocalist who was really starting to come into her own at the beginning of the 60s, and shines here in a way that's different from some of her bigger label sets! Backings are by Norman Simmons – a pianist we love on his own, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
