June ChristyBest Of June Christy – The Jazz Sessions ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $4.99
A well-chosen batch of tunes from June Christy's legendary years at Capitol Records – material that really helped transform the sound of the voice in jazz during the 50s! The title says "jazz sessions", but given June's approach, that encompasses most of her sides for Capitol – and the CD features material from a decade's worth of albums – mostly arranged by Pete Rugolo or Bob Cooper. There's a tremendous amount of darkness in many of these tunes – a mix of cold and sweet that's simply breathtaking, and which is still a style that June does better than anyone else. 18 tracks in all – including "Remind Me", "I Want You To Be Happy", "My Ship", "Looking For A Boy", "Baby All The Time", "Day Dream", "Midnight Sun", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Make Someone Happy", "How High The Moon", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most".

June ChristyBig Band Specials ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
A very different album than usual for June Christy – one of her last for Capitol, and a very swinging, upbeat affair! As the title implies, June's singing a set of tunes made famous during the glory days of the big bands – tracks associated with Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and others – all given a nice reworking here by June, in a style that's got a hipper, swinging California kind of groove! Arrangers on the set are Bill Holman, Bob Cooper, and Shorty Rogers – and they all keep things light and above board – shaking away the bluer tones and quieter moods of some of June's other records, taking her vocals back to the highly swinging style that first brought her fame in the 40s. Titles include "Frenesi", "Time Was", "Good Bye", "Night In Tunisia", "Stompin At the Savoy", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Skyliner". LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyGreat Ladies Of Song – Spotlight On June Christy ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
A great little collection of work by the legendary June Christy – one of our favorite vocalists ever, served up here in a host of her best songs for Capitol! The package is way more than just a "best of" – because the compilers took their "spotlight on" title seriously, and have gone out of their way to showcase the best of June's work, even if the tracks aren't all big singles or hits. Titles include the previously unissued number "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", plus "Imagination", "He's Funny That Way", "The Song Is You", "How High The Moon", "I Remember You", "As Long As I Live", "When The Sun Comes Out", "Goodbye", "Bewitched", and "Midnight Sun".

June ChristyImpromptu ... CD
Discovery, 1977. Used ... $4.99
An obscure moment in June Christy's career, but a great one too – a rare later recording, done many years after her time at Capitol Records – in a laidback setting with a hip group of west coast players! June's voice definitely shows a bit of age, but she's still head and shoulders above most jazz singers of her generation – mixing subtle feeling and darkness together beautifully, in a way that makes for a wonderfully moody record! Lou Levy leads the group on piano, and other players include Bob Cooper on tenor and flute, Frank Rosolino on trombone, and Jack Sheldon on trumpet – although the horns don't seem to appear on all the tracks on the date. Titles include "The Trouble With Hello Is Goodbye", "My Shining Hour", "Once Upon A Summertime", "Show Me", "Willow Weep For Me", "Everything Must Change", and "Autumn Serenade". CD

June ChristyJune Christy Recalls Those Kenton Days ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good ... $0.99
A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "How High The Moon", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Easy Street", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "She's Funny That Way", and "A Hundred Years From Today". LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyMisty Miss Christy ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely transformed by the pair's masterful handling – and titles include "The Wind", "There's No You", "For All We Know", "This Year's Kisses", "That's All", and "Maybe You'll Be There".

Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of June's greatest records, next to her impossible to beat Something Cool! Like that set, this one features dark arrangements by Pete Rugolo, working very hard here to win the "off beat" tag of the title. June's perfectly matched for this sort of setting, and her detachedly sad voice sounds great on songs like "Off Beat", "Out Of This World", "Remind Me", and "Out Of The Shadows".

Capitol, 1953. Used ... $0.99
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. 24 tracks total.

✨✧ June Christy & Bob CooperDo Re Mi ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint- ... $7.99
An unusual session for singer June Christy – and a set done in tight collaboration with husband Bob Cooper! Bob and June work together here to interpret work from the musical Do Re Mi – with June singing about half the tunes, and Bob playing the other half instrumentally – on tenor, and working with a smaller group that includes Bud Shank, Conte Candoli, and Buddy Collette. The format's got a fresh feel that changes things up nicely from June's other Capitol albums – and although things are a bit lighter than usual, they're still very much in the best Christy/Capitol mode! Vocal tunes include "Cry Like The Wind", "I Know About Love", "Asking For You", "Make Someone Happy", and "All You Need Is A Quarter" – alongside instrumentals that include "All Of My Life", "Fireworks", "It's Legitimate", and "Ambition".

Stan Kenton/June Christy/Four FreshmenRoad Show ... CD
Capitol, 1959. Used ... $18.99
A great example of the Kenton powerhouse in action – a 90 minute double-live recording that really set a new standard for jazz sets of its type! The album features a side apiece dedicated to each of the three acts – one by Kenton's orchestra, one by Christy on vocals, and one by the Four Freshmen – the latter two supported by Kenton's group on their own sides, then joining together for a final fourth side that features all artists together. The approach is a great one – very vibrant, and certainly crowd-pleasing – and titles include "Artistry In Rhythm", "My Old Flame", "I Want To Be Happy", "Midnight Sun", "Day In Day Out", "Angel Eyes", and "Love For Sale".

✨✧ June ChristyGone For The Day (plus Fair & Warmer) ... CD
Capitol, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Vocalist June Christy is one of the greatest under-recognized talents of the postwar era, and it's great to see that reissue CDs like this are finally getting her work back into the public again! Both albums on this CD were recorded in 1957, with arrangements by the icy genius Pete Rugolo, who worked earlier with Christy on her legendary Something Cool album. The records are both filled with haunting vocal tracks, twisted by Rugolo into complicated arrangements, and sung by Christy with a deep sense of sorrow and loneliness, masked by a weak smile that only seems to further emphasize Christy's inner pain. Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "It's So Peaceful In the Country", "When You Awake", "Better Luck Next Time", and "No More". 24 tracks in all – what a deal! CD

✨✧ June ChristySong Is June!/Off Beat ... CD
Capitol, 1958/1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A loving reissue that brings together two of the best June Christy albums on one CD! Both albums were cut a bit later than some of Christy's more famous work, and they represent the peak of her emotional maturity as a singer. The arrangements on both albums were done by Pete Rugolo, and he brought the same sort of eerie sound to the records that he did to Something Cool, his earlier classic with June. There's 20 cuts in all, and titles include "Off Beat", "The Bad & The Beautiful", "Saturday's Children", "Out Of This World", and "Nightime Was My Mother". Incredibly haunting work by one of our favorite all-time jazz vocalists! CD

✨✧ June ChristyJune's Got Rhythm (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1958/1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
June's got rhythm, sure, but the real thing that makes her great is her dark and moody sense of melody! This album's one of June's late 50s efforts done with husband/arranger Bob Cooper – not as arch modern as some of her recordings with arranger Pete Rugolo, but still in a style that's definitely inspired by the classic work of albums like Something Cool and Off Beat. Backing is by a small group of LA jazzers – including Shelly Manne, Russ Freeman, Laurindo Almeida, Frank Rosolino, and Cooper – and titles include "My One & Only Love", "Blue Moon", "I Can Make You Love Me", "When Lights Are Low", and "Gypsy In My Soul". CD also features 4 tracks from the rare Cool School album – "Small Fry", "Looking For A Boy", "Aren't You Glad You're You", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads". CD

Stan KentonInnovations In Modern Music Vol 1 ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include Chico O'Farrill's haunting "Cuban Episode", with vocals and conga by Carlos Vidal – plus the haunting "Conflict", with a June Christy wordless vocal, and the titles "Trajectories", "Incident In Jazz", and "Solitaire".

Chancellor, 1960. Very Good ... $29.99
Linda Lawson's a heck of a singer, and it's a shame that her career really didn't take off with this excellent album – because it's a doozy! The record has Linda singing over some sublime west coast backings from Marty Paich – leading a group that includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Bud Shank on alto, Bill Perkins on tenor, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and a host of other great talents – honed to perfection with the rare mix of swing and space that you'd get in a classic album by June Christy or Chris Connors – both of whom Linda's matching on this set. Titles include "Are You With Me", "Easy To Love", "But Beautiful", "Meaning Of The Blues", and "Up Pops Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Mary Ann McCallDetour To The Moon ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the rare few albums from vocalist Mary Ann McCall – a hell of a great singer, and one with a really moody, dark style! Mary Ann's got all the sad tones and blue hues we love in June Christy's best work – and she arguably works with even hipper backings, too – some inventive small group material that mixes performances by Teddy Charles on vibes, Mal Waldron on piano, and Jimmy Raney on guitar with some occasional violin and viola – used sparingly, and worked into these very offbeat arrangements that make the album unlike anything else we can think of – and every bit as striking as the title and cover! Tunes include "Detour Ahead", "Blue Moon", "Moonlight Becomes You", "Moon Country", "East Of The Sun", and "The Moon Was Yellow". CD

Anita O'DayIncomparable! (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Verve, 1960. Used ... $5.99
Lovely work from Anita O'Day – a relatively obscure session that has her working with west coast arrangements from the pen of Bill Holman. The sound of the album's almost in the mood of a classic 50s Capitol album by June Christy – with a sophisticated and jazzy sound that O'Day didn't always have, and which could sometimes get lost on her more gimmicky albums. Tracks have a wonderful glide and an easy-going approach – and titles include "Easy Living", "Can't We Be Friends", "It Could Happen To You", "Avalon", "The Party's Over", "Blue Champagne", and "Indian Summer".

What a singer! Anne Phillips is someone that we know nothing about – we'll admit – but this gem of an album is one we'd gladly stack next to our favorite 50s vocal sides, including work by June Christy and Chris Connor! The arrangements are superb – a blend of jazz and lusher styles, handled by Kermit Leslie in a subtly sweet style that never gets to cloying – and Anne's vocals are moody and dusky, but never self pitying. Wonderful stuff all around – and with tracks that include "For Heaven's Sake", "Lonelyville", "I've Got To Pass Your House To Get To Mine", "When Sunny Gets Blue", and "A Stranger In Town". CD

One of the few albums ever recorded by 50s vocalist Ann Richards – best known for her work with Stan Kenton in the post-June Christy days, stepping out very nicely here in a small group session! Ann's definitely got a touch of the June in her approach – but she's also a bit warmer, and slightly more lusty, and sings here with good backing that includes guitar by Barney Kessel, playing in that spare moody way he used with Julie London on her Liberty sides. Titles include "An Occasional Man", "There's A Lull In My Life", "You Go To My Head", "And That's All", "Bewitched", and "How Do I Look In Blue". CD

Pete RugoloAdventures In Rhythm ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some fantastic records by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and other hip vocalists of the time. This side has plenty of Rugolo's modern touches – but manages to swing nicely, spending a bit of time with strange assemblages of instruments and odd phrasings, but also getting back to the groove in time to keep things lively. Titles include "Sambamba", "Here's Pete", "Mixin The Blues", "Rugolo Meets Shearing", "Jingle Bells Mambo", "Good Evening Friends Boogie", "Conversation", and "Bazaar". LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Rugolo is best known to the world for his work with Stan Kenton, June Christy, and the Four Freshmen – but this album of TV themes is pretty darn fab, and it includes a lot of strange bits that push it past the regular TV kind of album. The personnel isn't listed, but the sound is plenty groovy – very much in keeping with Rugolo's best upbeat work from the post-Capitol years. Titles include "Theme From Dick Van Dyke", "Route 66", "General Electric Theatre Logo", "Nervous", "Naked City", "Ichabod & Me", and "My Three Sons". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent crime soundtrack! Pete Rugolo's best known as the arranger who made Stan Kenton, The Four Freshmen, and June Christy sound so great in the 50s – but in later work, he did some incredible jazz soundtracks, as you'll hear on this batch of work for the TV show thriller. Tunes are played by a heavy group of west coasters – with lots of searing sax solos by Bob Cooper, Bud Shank, and Harry Kiee – plus other instrumentation that runs from percussion by Larry Bunker and Milt Holland, to organ by Jack Cookerly. Titles include "Voodoo Man", "The Hungry Glass", "Child's Play", "Finger Of Fear", "Man In the Middle", "Girl With A Secret", and "Thriller". CD
