Joe CarrollMan With A Happy Sound ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Dizzy's longtime bebop partner cut this album of vocal tracks in the early 60s, when he was no longer recording with Diz. The record's a good batch of vocalese tracks with a strong bop edge – in the traditon of singers like Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks, and King Pleasure, and the band ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Betty CarterOut There With Betty Carter ... LP
Peacock, Late 50s. Very Good ... $79.99
A fantastic album by Betty Carter – and certainly her rarest – not nearly as "out there" as you might guess from the title, but still a sparkling set of modern jazz vocals! The album was recorded with arrangements by Gigi Gryce, plus some help from Melba Liston – and a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Peacock pressing! Cover some splitting on the top seam, but is nice overall – and vinyl is nice and clean.)

Paula CastleLost Love ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the few albums ever cut by 50s singer Paula Castle – a really great vocalist with a sound that matches the best Bethlehem records work of her labelmate, Chris Connor! Castle's got a nicely-composed approach to singing – never too flowery or overdone, yet also never too cool, ... read more CD

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz/My Kind Of Jazz ... CD
Impulse, 1960. Used ... $4.99
We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Ray CharlesGenius Of Ray Charles ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Some of Ray's biggest tracks for Atlantic, including many remakes of standards like "Just For A Thrill", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin", "Am I Blue", and "It Had To Be You". You've heard it all a million times, but it's still beautiful stuff – and ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music ... LP
ABC, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
A classic! What seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius, and the result was 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 ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music Vol 2 ... LP
ABC, 1962. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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 ...

Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Note (Italy), 1984. Sealed ... $4.99
Features both Ellen Christi and Lisa Sokolov on vocals – with Rahn Burton on piano, William Parker on bass, and Tom Bruno on drums!

June ChristyBallads For Night People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1961. Used ... $4.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons ... read more CD

June ChristyImpromptu ... CD
Discovery, 1977. Used ... $8.99
An obscure moment in June Christy's career, but a great one too – a rare later recording, done many years after her time at Capitol Records – in a laidback setting with a hip group of west coast players! June's voice definitely shows a bit of age, but she's still head and shoulders ... read more CD

June ChristyJune Christy Recalls Those Kenton Days ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good ... $1.99
A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "H ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyJune's Got Rhythm (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1958/1960. Used ... $4.99
June's got rhythm, sure, but the real thing that makes her great is her dark and moody sense of melody! This album's one of June's late 50s efforts done with husband/arranger Bob Cooper – not as arch modern as some of her recordings with arranger Pete Rugolo, but still in a style that's ... read more CD
