✨✧ Art BlakeyIndestructible (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $4.99
A killer pounding session from Blakey! The record was recorded during Blakey's bright flash of genius in 1964, when the Jazz Messengers were briefly revisited by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter, with the added horn of Curtis Fuller to add new colors to the group. Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin". CD features the bonus track "It's A Long Way Down", penned by Wayne Shorter. This is the newly remastered version, too – with additional notes and photos. CD

✨✧ Bing CrosbyWhite Christmas (aka Merry Christmas) ... CD
Decca/MCA, 1940s. Used ... $1.99
This may well be THE Christmas album of the 20th century – a 50s issue of 40s singles cut by Der Bingle, packaged in a cover with a classic cover image that's ensured that the record stayed in print for dozens of Decembers in years to come! Given that Bing virtually owned Christmas on TV during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the album's place in popular music is well-earned – and honestly, Bing's "aw shucks, I'm just reg'lar folks" sort of approach to these tunes really helped create a kind of common man secular side to the Holidays that forever transformed America's celebration of the season. Or maybe we're going to far with this one . . . But whatever the case, the album's a standard, and one we were certainly raised on. Titles include "Silver Bells", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "Adeste Fideles", "Faith Of Our Fathers", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas".

✨✧ Stefon HarrisAfrican Tarantella – Dances With Duke ... CD
Blue Note, 2006. Used ... $2.99
A bold new chapter in the career of vibraphonist Stephon Harris – and proof that he's one of the most amazing players of his generation, one who's always growing into new sounds and styles! Despite the "Duke" in the title here, the work isn't a simple homage to the classics of Ellington – and instead, it uses some lesser-known themes by Duke as vehicles for new waves of color, sound, and tone from Harris – scored in the same soulful way as his brilliant work on Grand Unification Theory from a few years back. The style here is hardly Ellington, and is more a shimmering mix of small combo jazz and strings – headed up mostly by Harris' vibes and marimba, but also featuring Steve Turre on trombone, Anne Drummond on flute, Greg Tardy on clarinet, and Xavier Davis on piano. 3 tracks here are from Harris' own The Gardner Meditations – "Memoirs Of A Frozen Summer", "African Tarantella", and "Dancing Enigma" – and Ellington titles include "Thanks For The Beautiful Land On The Delta", "Portrait Of Wellman Braud", "Bourbon Street Jingling Jollies", "Single Petal Of A Rose", and "Sunset & The Mocking Bird".

✨✧ Frank SinatraChristmas Songs By Sinatra ... CD
Columbia, Late 40s. Used ... $3.99
Frank Sinatra's first run of Christmas work – material recorded for Columbia Records in the late 40s, but quite similar to his better-known Holiday sides for Capitol in the 50s! As with that work, the style here is quite respectful of the spirit of the season – more reverent than playful, although always with an undercurrent of sadness that makes the tunes especially nice – that Christmas longing that would show up in the best Holiday records, which Sinatra always seemed to get. Heck, even the version of "Jingle Bells" sounds a bit melancholy – and pretty darn nice, too – next to tunes that include "Christmas Dreaming", "Winter Wonderland", "Let It Snow", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", and "White Christmas" – plus a medley of "O Little Town Of Bethlehem/Joy To The World/White Christmas", which begins with a cool spoken introduction.

Sonic YouthGoo (deluxe edition) ... CD
DGC/Universal, 1990. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Sonic Youth's major label debut – which is, somewhat perversely, less insistently accessible as the preceding Daydream Nation – with slow-building guitar squalls and oddball noise pop in just about equal measure! Goo is self-produced, with some assistance from their fellow Geffen newbie (circa '90) J Mascis and Don Fleming. Includes the absolute classic "Dirty Boots", plus "Tunic", "Kool Thing", "Disappearer", "My Friend Goo" and "Scooter and Jinx". Looking back, it's a pretty inspired moment in major label rock & roll history – where outsider creatives infiltrated the mainstream and changed the way things work for a decade + to come! 2CD deluxe edition includes demos, rare b-sides, rehearsals and out takes.

✨✧ VariousChristmas Cocktails – Hi Fi Holiday Cheer From Santa's Pad ... CD
Capitol/Ultra Lounge, 1950s/1960s. Used ... $4.99
Very groovy stuff! This 18 track set is about the hippest easiest Christmas compilation you can find – and it's filled with gems pulled from the Ultra Lounge end of the Capitol/EMI catalog! There's a mixture of vocal tunes, easy instrumental tunes, and even a few hip jazz numbers – and titles include "Christmas Kisses" by Ray Anthony, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" by Jimmy McGriff, "Winter Wonderland" by Peggy Lee, "Christmas Is" by Lou Rawls, "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" by Dean Martin, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus/Jingle Bells Bossa Nova" by Eddie Dunstedter, "Cha Cha All The Way" by Capitol Studio Orchestra, "The Nutcracker Suite" by Les Brown, and "Christmas Trumpets" by Ray Anthony.

Titles include "White Christmas" by Ed Calle & Dan Warner, "Angels We Have Heard On High" by Caribbean Jazz Project, "Santa Baby" by Sheila E, "Jingle Bells" by Ed Calle & Arturo Sandoval, "What Child Is This" by Poncho Sanchez, "Feliz Navidad" by Pete Escovedo, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Poncho Sanchez, and "Sleigh Ride" by Caribbean Jazz Project.

VariousTeeVee Toons – The Commercials ... CD
TVT, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
Shorter than the usual TV Tunes 2 LP sets, and with only 50 tracks – but, oh, what tracks they are! Loads and loads of cool old TV commercials, back from the old days – when nobody cared how goofy they sounded, and when they spent way too much money on studio hacks churning out cool little grooves and jingles. You'll remember some of these, and others will come back to you from the deepest haunts of your memories. Titles include "Plop Plop Fizz Fizz" (Alka-Seltzer), "A Little Dab'll Do Ya" (Brylcream), "When You Say Bud" (Budweiser), "Choo Choo Charlie" (Good & Plenty), "Be A Pepper" (Dr. Pepper), "Meow Meow Meow Meow" (Meow Mix), "The Dogs Kids Love To Bite" (Armour Hot Dogs), "Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut" (Almond Joy) – and loads loads more! Very goofy, but a real hit with the kids and the sample crowd. CD

✨✧ VariousYule Struttin – A Blue Note Christmas ... CD
Blue Note, 1990. Used ... $5.99
A relatively recent effort, as far as the Holiday history books go – but a surprisingly nice set that's turned out to be one of the few enduring modern Christmas albums! The strength of the set is its simplicity – a non-gimmicky presentation of Holiday standards, played by some of the bigger Blue Note artists of the late 80s. A few tracks sound a bit dated, but overall, there's a nice jazz component that keeps the set working nicely – supported by one or two older numbers amidst the new material. Titles include "Vauncing Chimes" by Bobby Watson, "The Christmas Song" by Lou Rawls, "A Merrier Christmas" by Benny Green, "Jingle Bells" by Count Basie, "I'll Be Home For Christmas/Sleigh Ride" by Eliane Elias, "Little Drummer Boy" by Rick Margitza, and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Dexter Gordon.

✨✧ Lenny BruceLenny Bruce Originals Vol 1 (Interviews Of Our Times/Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce) ... CD
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Lenny Bruce 2-fer – 2 classic albums back to back on a single CD! First up is Interviews Of Our Times – not necessarily a record of interviews – as the title might make you think – but one of Bruce's best records for Fantasy! The album's got some very edgey bits that approximate his live material, and which take the best part of his cleaner act, and transfer them well to record. Titles include "Dijinni In The Candy Store", "Enchanting Transylvania", "Interview With Dr Sholem Stein", "The Interview", "All Broadway Musicals Sound The Same, Especially The Baritones", and "The March Of High Fidelity". Sick Humor Of Lenny Bruce is possibly the most famous of all the Lenny Bruce albums on Fantasy – as it's the one that has a crazy image of Lenny having a picnic in a cemetery! Lenny's genius is still in formation here – but the record does have some great moments, like the oft-sampled "Religions Inc", and the crazy song "Psychopathia Sexualis", a great example of the way that Lenny used to mix music in his live performances!

✨✧ Rosemary ClooneyRosemary Clooney In Songs From The Paramount Pictures Production Of White Christmas (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rosemary Clooney has had many claims to fame over the years, but one of her first was a key appearance in the film White Christmas – an on-screen role that's nicely reprised here in a set of Irving Berlin tunes from the movie! Rosemary sings solo on all numbers – save for one that's done as a duet with her sister – and the backings nicely approximate the overall vibe of the soundtrack, but have a tighter sort of clarity for these studio recordings. Tracks include "White Christmas", "Snow", "Get I Wish I Was Back In The Army", and "Count Your Blessings Instead Of Sheep". Plus, the CD adds in 7 more bonus tracks – radio performances from The Rosemary Clooney Show or The Bing Crosby Show – with titles that include "Home For The Holidays", "The Christmas Song", "Jingle Bells", "Silver Bells", and "Happy Christmas Little Friend".

✨✧ Benny GolsonNew Time, New 'Tet ... CD
Concord, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Benny Golson's one of those players who never lets us down – and here, into his 80th year in on the planet, the man's still burning strongly and soulfully! The set's got a very solid, put-together sort of sound – the quality that's always made us seek out Golson albums of any vintage, amazed at the depth of feeling and richness of creativity that Benny can bring to even a simple sort of date. This one's definitely a cut above, though – self-produced by Golson, and featuring a lineup with Eddie Henderson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Steve Davis on trombone, Mike LeDonne on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Carl Allen on drums – all rock-solid players who help Benny flesh out his sound beautifully here, reaching some nice sensitive points at times, then sliding back into warmly soulful grooves. Al Jarreau guests with vocals on a version of "Whisper Not" – and other titles include "Verdi's Voice", "Uptown Afterburn", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", "From Dream To Dream", "Grove's Groove", "L'Adieu", and "Love Me In A Special Way".

✨✧ Freddie Hubbard & Benny GolsonJazz Masters – Freddie Hubbard & Benny Golson ... CD
LRC, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure date from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and tenorist Benny Golson – but some really great work from both players! The format here is relaxed and very open – long tunes that allow both players to really stretch out on their solos with tremendous grace and imagination. And despite the low price and simple packaging of the set, the quality of both the music and recording is easily on a par with the best 80s work by Hubbard and Golson – and is a masterful meeting of both artists! The group's a quintet, with more additional great talent – including Mulgrew Miller on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – hitting the kit with a great sense of energy that really drives the session. Titles include a great acoustic reworking of Hubbard's classic "Povo", presented in a way that's still surprisingly funky – plus "Double Bass", "Sad To Say", "Far Away", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", and "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing".

✨✧ MaysaVery Maysa Christmas ... CD
Shanachie, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's like a Christmas wish come true – a fantastic album of Holiday music, all sung by the soulful Maysa Leak! We've loved Maysa's vocals for years – from her work in Incognito to her long run of solo albums – but she grabs us all over again with the style of this set – a really fresh variation on her excellent sound, with a righteous undercurrent that definitely comes from the spirit of the season! Production is still contemporary and soul-based – done by Chris "Big Dog" Davis, in the spirit of Maysa's other recent records – but the shift in material seems to open up a whole new side of the singer – on titles that include "Pray For Peace", "Jingle Bells", "Joy To The World", "It's The Holidays", and "Christmas Time Is Here". Album also features guest appearances – with Will Downing on "This Christmas", and Gerald Albright on "Silver Bells". CD

✨✧ PlattersChristmas With The Platters ... CD
Polygram, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's a smooth smooth Christmas from The Platters – heard here in their wonderful 1963 Christmas album! The set follows in the style of the group's late 50s hits – but with a sound that's a bit more tuned to the season, and not as much in the late nite smoochy mode of some of their more famous ballads. The harmonies on the set are great – and the album's a real precursor to the smoother group soul Holiday albums of the 70s and 80s. Titles include "Jingle Bells Jingle", "Blue Christmas", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Silent Night", "Come Home For Christmas", and "Winter Wonderland". CD

Ella's got a perfect style to interpret these numbers – working with Frank DeVol and Russ Garcia in a set of lightly jazzy versions of Christmas favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "Jingle Bells", "Winter Wonderland", "We Three Kings", "White Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman", and one of the best versions of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve" ever recorded! Plus, the CD features a few tasty alternates – and the album also includes great packaging, and the groovy tune "Christmas Island"! CD

✨✧ VariousGod Rest Ye Merry Jazzmen ... CD
Columbia, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great stuff – one of the best Christmas jazz albums you'll ever hope to find! The set features 70s tunes that are much more expansive than the work on Columbia's previous best-selling jazz Holiday CD – Jingle Bell Jazz – played by an assortment of the label's strongest players at the end of the 70s. This means that there's more focus on the solos than the melodies sometimes – but that's ok with us, as we like to hear these tunes open up! Titles include "The Christmas Song" by Arthur Blythe, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Dexter Gordon, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" by McCoy Tyner, "Our Little Town" by The Heath Brothers, and "We Three Kings" by Wynton Marsalis.
