Grady TateShe Is My Lady ... LP
Janus, 1972. Very Good+ ... $0.99
The jazzy vocals of Grady Tate get the Philly Soul treatment – as most of this album was recorded at Sigma Sound, with arrangements by Bobby Martin, and work by the usual MFSB players. Oddly, Grady's gone for kind of a rootsy style of singing on this one – harder than on earlier albums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sylvia TellesFace I Love ... LP
Kapp, 1966. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An extremely rare album by Sylvia Telles! The record is one of the few she ever released in the US – and it features her singing in English on a number of light bossa groovers. The album has a nice light pop bossa kind of groove – and it includes a number of nice tracks that don't ... (Brazil, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

That's WhyBest Of That's Why ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Vocal jazz, but with plenty of tripped-out touches – hardly what you'd expect from a Norwegian group with plenty of Christian leanings! That's Why were one of the key groups to reform the sound of church music in Norway at the end of the 60s – and work here with a unique hybrid of jazz ... read more CD

Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
A tasty compilation of Leon Thomas' work for the Flying Dutchman label – work that's clearly his best over the years, and which retains the original style of spiritual soul jazz that he pioneered with Pharoah Sanders. The groove here runs from open-ended soul jazz to some tighter numbers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Leon ThomasLeon Thomas In Berlin ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful live performance by vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that seems to link together both his own excellent solo material of the time, and his key Impulse recordings with Pharoah Sanders! The group here is a small one – with the wonderful Oliver Nelson on alto sax, showing off ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MGM, 1963. Very Good ... $2.99
A pretty hip album of jazz vocal numbers by Pat Thomas – made even hipper by arrangements from Claus Ogerman and Lalo Schifrin! The style of the record's a bit like Lorez Alexandria's work from the same time – part jazz, part soul, and all-solid all the way through vocally – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teri ThorntonTeri Thornton Sings Somewhere In The Night ... LP
Dauntless, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Obscure set of sexy vocal numbers, sung by Teri Thornton with some nice backing by Larry Wilcox and his orchestra. Thornton's got a polished style that resembles some of Sarah Vaughan's Mercury recordings of the mid and late 50s, and the backing is lush and dreamy, and works well with her voice. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
Groovy vocals from 70s Japan – a very hip male quintet, and one with the same harmony sound as The Four Freshmen or The Hi-Los! Given the date of the record, the tunes are a bit more contemporary – but still swung by the group with a very jazzy style, one that often has sweet small ... read more CD

Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
An obscure early session from Ed Townsend – an artist who's perhaps better known as a songwriter of hits for others, and slightly less as a 70s soul singer on Curtom and Casablanca! Yet here, Ed's starting out his career as a mainstream crooner – cast by Capitol as a sepia Sinatra, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent set from the contemporary Italian scene – one that's steeped in older jazz and modal influences from the 60s and 70s!

A rare Stan Kenton session with a vocalist – one that features the little-known Jean Turner, a really great singer with a mix of soul and jazz that's a lot like Nancy Wilson!
