June ChristyBallads For Night People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, 1961. Used ... $4.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons – first brought to record so beautifully by June on the Something Cool album, and wonderfully revisited in this fantastic set! Arrangements are by husband Bob Cooper, and although they're a bit less arch-modern than some of Christy's work with Pete Rugolo, they still really get at the boozy genius of June's vocals at their best. Titles include "I Had A Little Sorrow", "Night People", "Make Love To Me", "Shadow Woman", "My Ship", and "Kissing Bug". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from the Do Re Mi album – including "Make Someone Happy", "Asking For You", and "All You Need Is A Quarter". CD

June ChristyImpromptu ... CD
Discovery, 1977. Used ... $8.99
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 ... $1.99
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 ChristyJune's Got Rhythm (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1958/1960. Used ... $4.99
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

June ChristyOff Beat ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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".

June ChristySomething Cool (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Capitol, 1953. Used ... $1.99
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 ChristyJune Fair & Warmer ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Always brilliant work from the great June Christy – an album that's got a lot more darkness than you might think from the title and the bright-colored cover! The style is very booze-soaked and sad – with plenty of echoes of the classic Something Cool album – and like that set, this one features sublime arrangements from the great Pete Rugolo – who has a perfect way of shading things in with the dark tones and modern elements that always work best for Christy's vocals! One of our favorite-ever records from June – with titles that include "Let There Be Love", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "I Want To Be Happy", "Imagination", "No More", "Better Luck Next Time", and "The Best Thing For You".

Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". CD features some bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ Stan KentonInnovations Orchestra ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
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 "Solitaire", "Soliloquy", "June Christy", "Shelly Manne", "House Of Strings", "Cello-logy", "Art Pepper", "Halls Of Brass", "In Veradero", "Blues In Riff", and "Coop's Solo". 2CDs, great notes, and 30 tracks in all!

Linda LawsonIntroducing Linda Lawson ... LP
Chancellor, 1960. Very Good ... $34.99
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 ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Anne PhillipsBorn To Be Blue ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Ann RichardsAnn, Man! ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... About July 26, 2017
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

Shorty Rogers & Andre Previn with Betty BennettIn Collaboration – Featuring The Giants & Betty Bennett (Collaboration/Nobody Else But Me) ... CD
RCA/Atlantic/Jazz City (Spain), 1954/1955. Used ... $9.99
2 rare mid 50s collaborations between pianist Andre Previn and trupeter Shorty Rogers – back to back on one CD! The first half of the CD is an instrumental collaboration between the pair – one that's mostly set up in the mode of Rogers style of the time with his Giants group – but which also really sparkles tremendously with the addition of Previn's brightly-colored piano lines! We'd honestly never thought that highly of Andre's work until hearing this set – and his presence here really adds a new dimension to the Shorty Rogers groove of the 50s – a set of tones that spring out wonderfully, and really illuminate the set! Other players include Bud Shank, Milt Bernhart, Jimmy Giuffre, and Bob Cooper – on 13 titles that include "It's Delovely", "Heat Wave", "40 Below", "Claudia", "General Cluster", "Everything I've Got", "Call For Cole", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". Next up is a 1955 vocal album by singer Betty Bennett – recorded for Atlantic, and featuring arrangements and instrumentation by both Rogers and Previn! Betty's got a nice icy west coast cool style of singing – a bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – and players in the group include Harry Klee, Frank Rosolino, Bob Cooper, and Jimmy Giuffre. The tracks are an interesting batch of slighly-exotic numbers, some from shows, and titles include "Sidewalks Of Cuba", "Island In The West Indies", "Tomorrow Mountain", and "Treat Me Rough". CD

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
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
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Pete RugoloThriller ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Julie LondonJulie London at Home ... LP
Liberty, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Julie London's strongest overall albums – a great session that features small group backings with a warm and intimate feel! There's less of the languid sadness of some of Julie's other records, and more of the dreamy floating style of singers like Chris Connor or June Christy on this one. The feeling of the album's great, and it shows that Julie was much more than a pop singer with sexy looks and a smoky finish – although we're happy to hear that on here too! Titles include "Let There Be Love", "Goodbye", "You've Changed", "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To", "Lonesome Road", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "The Thrill Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Fi, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nothing mixed about Dorothy Carless' vocals here – as they're rock-solid, and put together beautifully for the record – nicely understated at most points, and sung with a warm jazz-based approach! Carless has the careful manner of some of the best 50s small group singers – the easygoing, almost naturalistic feel you'd hear in June Christy or Chris Connor – presented here with spare backings that mostly feature piano as the prominent instrument next to the voice! There's an undercurrent of sadness that really makes the album work – and titles include "Little Girl Blue", "When The Wind Was Green", "Fancy Free", "One For My Baby", and "Susan's Dream".
