A very groovy little record – a swinging band, but one that's got more rock in their rhythms than jazz – driven on by lead singer Paul New, who's got a surprisingly soulful sound at times – maybe a more blue-eyed soul version of Vic Damone!

Discovery, 1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Even an 80s perm can't hide the brilliance of Sue Raney – a singer who first started crafting great music in the 50s, but who kept on going with great records for decades to come!

Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $24.99
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwriter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records!

Erect, 1981. Very Good+ ... $0.99
An obscure bit of Chicago jazz – featuring vocalist Luba Raushiek, kind of a self-styled spiritualist, with an approach that hits both traditional modes, and more far-out soulful ones – running through styles that range from Leon Thomas to Billy Eckstine, as was typical for a small club ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the beautiful records from Lou's late 60's years at Capitol, and one of the ones he made with the great team of H.B. Barnum and David Axelrod.

Jubilee, 1958. Very Good ... $3.99
A gospel session, as you might guess from the title – and one that not only shows Della's roots in church music, but which also hints at the spiritual role she'd play in later life!

One of the greatest early moments from Dianne Reeves – a set that's still steeped in plenty of jazz, but one that also has the singer coming across with a more personally poetic vibe as well – a quality that opens up Reeves in ways we never would have expected a few years before! ... read more CD
