A mid 20s Christmas treasure from Bessie Smith! "At The Christmas Ball" balances the cozy warmth and good natured seasonal vibe, with the period bluesy instrumental backdrop and tone that the Empress Of The Blues is famous for – good tidings with a hint of melancholy.

✨✧ LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other music of the time – and which sports reeds from Sahib Shihab, tenor from Paul Quinichette, trumpet from Buck Clayton, and trombone from Jimmy Cleveland! Baker's voice is in fine form in this comfortable setting – and really works magic with tracks that include "After You've Gone", "Preaching The Blues", "Empty Bed Blues", "Back Water Blues", and "Gimme A Pigfoot". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Jazzlore pressing. Cover has a promo stamp and cutout notch.)

✨✧ Jimmy RushingJimmy Rushing & The Smith Girls – Bessie, Clara, Mamie, & Trixie – And The Songs They Made Famous ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jimmy Rushing reprises a nice batch of blues classics from the 20s, all of which were sung by early recording artists like Bessie or Clara Smith. The group that backs him is a nice one, and features Buck Clayton on trumpet, Buster Bailey on clarinet, and Coleman Hawkins on tenor. As with many of Columbia's late 50's sessions in this style, the sound is excellent, and has an intimacy and warmth that works extremely well with the material – including titles like "Arkansas Blues", "Gulf Coast Blues", "Muddy Waters", "Squeeze Me", and "Crazy Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some edge wear.)

VariousWhere Will You Be Christmas Day? – 1917 to 1959 ... CD
Dust To Digital, 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A very vintage Christmas set – one that's pulled mostly from the same sort of scratchy 78rpm recordings we've come to love from the Dust To Digital label – a great blend of folk, blues, country, and gospel recordings – all of which offer up quite a change from the usual Holiday fare! The "dust" has been reduced to a minimum, but the records are clearly sourced from analogue discs – which adds to the earthy, timeless feel of the collection – almost as if you're unpacking a special box of records from way back in the attic, bringing them out every year along with the Christmas decorations! Features 24 tracks in all – work by Kansas City Kitty, Leroy Carr, Vera Hall Ward, Pawlo Humeniuk, Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers, Lord Executor, Walter Davis, Bessie Smith, Lord Beginner, and many others.

✨✧ Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful setting for the tenor genius of Eric Alexander – a freewheeling trio, which is a format we're not sure we've ever heard him in before – really stretching out in an amazing way, with the sense of of imagination that we've always loved in his music, but with a depth that takes him farther than most of his usual recordings too! We're not sure what happened, but there's a new sort of edge in Eric's horn – one that might well come from the sublime work of Dezron Douglas on bass and Neal Smith on drums – but which might just be Alexander deciding to take off and really blow us away – which he does throughout the set, with a sense of spirituality that we haven't heard from him before. The whole thing's amazing – and titles include "Wise One", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "You Say You Care", "Beautiful Love", "Bessie's Blues", "Russian Lullaby", and "We've Only Just Begun".

✨✧ VariousRoot Hog Or Die – 100 Years, 100 Songs – An Alan Lomax Centennial Tribute (6LP set) ... LP
Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 6 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A stunning tribute to the great Alan Lomax – the legendary musicologist, historian, and recording engineer who captured so many wonderful American sounds in the 20th Century! Lomax's work has been crucial to both the Library Of Congress and Smithsonian/Folkways Records – yet there's also a fair bit that has never seen the light of day before – amazing recordings that make up a surprisingly large part of this box set – which compiles work in many different styles recorded by Alan in the field – blues, folk, gospel, and global modes, plus compelling regional genres – all presented here in a special 6LP set. The box features 55 never-issued tracks, and lots more great ones too – with music by Shirley Collins, Fiddlin Joe Martin, Compagna Sacco, Calvin Frazier, Sonny Boy Williamson, Jelly Roll Morton, Ernest Williams, Neal Morris, Skip James, Son House, Elmer Barton, Brendan Behan, George Sea Island Singers, Big Bill Broonzy, Elizabeth Austin, Jean Ritchie, Bascomb Lamar Lunsford, Bessie Jones, Duke Of Iron, Charles Barnett, and many others. The box features a nice booklet of notes, too – and some rare photos from the archive! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 1000 copies.)
