✨✧ Carmen McRaeLover Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1962. Used ... $4.99
An overlooked gem from Carmen – one of her few albums for Columbia from the 60s, and a wonderfully swinging small group session that's got a much more relaxed feel than some of her earlier sets! The album's ostensibly a tribute to Billie Holiday – but it's taken in a way that's ... read more CD

Carmen McRaeSound Of Silence/Portrait Of Carmen ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Late 60s. Used ... $14.99
Two great lost albums from Carmen – very different than her earlier work, kind of a mixture of jazz, soul, and pop, in territory that's a bit like work by Nancy Wilson or Marlena Shaw. Sound of Silence has Carmen working with arrangments by Shorty Rogers and Jimmy Jones – nicely jazzy, ... read more CD

Decca (UK), 1955/1956. Used ... $6.99
Two early gems from Carmen McRae – back to back on one CD! Torchy is a wonderfully titled set that's certainly plenty torchy all the way through! Carmen's singing in a lush, romantic style – working with backings from Jack Pleis and Ralph Burns – in a mode that features larger ... read more CD

This double-length set brings together two albums' worth of work that Carmen McRae recorded for the Groove Merchant label in the early 70s!

A rare jazz vocal album from Dave Brubeck – one that has the famous pianist working here with Carmen McRae – who served up a hose of vocal versions of some of Dave's best compositions!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Equinox ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good- ... $5.99
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ...

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Look Around ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best!

The greatest and grooviest hits from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – that completely charming little group that really warmed up pop at the end of the 60s!

A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits!

Helen MerrillAmerican Country Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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! Merrill first rose to fame as a cool-voiced singer in the 50s, but she does a surprisingly great job here with country tunes as well ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1994. Used ... $7.99
A later tribute to Clifford Brown from Helen Merrill – the vocalist who worked famously with the late trumpeter in the 50s!
