Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1971. Used ... $19.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits!

Helen MerrillAmerican Country Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Near Mint- ... $28.99
Quite an unusual album from Helen Merrill – but a set that also shows that quite early on, she was a singer with a keen ear for working on larger concepts too!

Metrojazz, 1959. Near Mint- ... $84.99
Maybe our favorite album ever from singer Helen Merrill – certainly from the early days – and a unique outing cut for MGM's excellent Metrojazz label!
