June ChristyBest Of June Christy – The Jazz Sessions ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $1.99
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 ChristyGreat Ladies Of Song – Spotlight On June Christy ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
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 ... LP
Interplay, 1977. Very Good- ... $1.99
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".

✨✧ June ChristyJune Christy & The Johnny Guarnieri Quintet 1949 ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1949. Used ... $11.99
Great small combo work from the amazing June Christy – one of her first recordings of the type, and a great contrast to her bigger band work with Stan Kenton in the 40s! The feel of the set is surprisingly modern – with very clear recording quality, and a tightly swinging style of jazz that's much more like a late 50s jazz date than you might expect from the 1949 vintage. Instrumentation is quite clean, with little sense of hoke – and players include Johnny Guarnieri on piano, Charlie DiMaggio on alto and clarinet, and George Walters on trumpet. The set's 70 minutes long – and titles include "Alice Blue Gown", "Idaho", "Sposin", "One O'Clock Jump", "Cheek To Cheek", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Yesterdays", "They Didn't Believe Me", and "Robins & Roses".

June ChristyJune Fair & Warmer ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
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. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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".

June ChristySomething Cool (Mono version – blue cover) ... LP
Capitol, 1953. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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. Titles include "Something Cool", "It Could Happen To You", "Lonely House", "I'm Thrilled", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! Original Mono recording – from 1953.

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. And, on this CD reissue, you'll also hear the pair in a whopping amount of extra material, pulled from singles and albums issued around the same time, for a total of 24 cuts in all. Titles include "Magazines", "Whee Baby", "I'm Thrilled", "Out Of Somewhere", and "The Night We Called It A Day". Fantastic stuff! CD

June Christy & Bob CooperDo Re Mi ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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".

June Christy & Stan KentonDuet (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1955. Used ... $4.99
Haunting stuff – and one of June Christy's darkest albums! June's singing here with her old boss, Stan Kenton, at the piano – no other real backing, just the pair of them working together in a session that's uniquely stripped down for the time. June's vocals are frail and tender – with even more sadness than in some of her more fully arranged sessions, all of which we love to death. Titles include "Come To The Party", "Angel Eyes", "Lonely Woman", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "We Kiss In A Shadow", and "You're Mine You". Plus, the CD reissue contains 2 bonus tracks not on the original LP! CD

Stan Kenton/June Christy/Four FreshmenRoad Show ... CD
Capitol, 1959. Used ... $8.99
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".

Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
The first album in a legendary run of vocal jazz classics on Atlantic Records – and a set that really helped Chris Connor move to a new level of expression in her music! The sound here is much richer than Connor's previous recordings for Bethlehem – and the small combo jazz backings have been replaced by fuller orchestrations by Ralph Burns – done in a cool, edgey sort of way that really pushes Chris into newly sophisticated territory! The sound's on a par with the best June Christy/Pete Rugolo collaborations on Capitol – and the group's filled with some great jazz players, including Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "He Was Good to Me", "Where Are You", and "Get Out Of Town". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonInnovations Orchestra ... CD
Capitol, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
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 "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!

Mary Ann McCallDetour To The Moon ... CD
Jubilee/EMI (Japan), 1958. Used ... $16.99
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

Patti PageIndiscretion (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Mercury/LP Time (Spain), 1955. Used ... $19.99
Patti Page at her grown up best – sounding wonderful on this 50s album that shows that she was way more than just a pop singer – and instead a rich-toned vocalist capable of surprisingly great delivery! The backings have a slightly modern edge – not June Christy at Capitol, but maybe not that far off either – and although there's a fair bit of strings at times, they often have these tones that set off just the right sort of darkness for the tunes – and bring inflections to the music that we don't always hear with Patti. Yet the Page punctuation is still also nicely in place, especially on the few swingers – and titles include "We Just Couldn't Say Goodbye", "Indiscretion", "Autumn Leaves", "Everything Happens To Me", "I'll Walk Alone", and "You Call Everybody Darling".

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

Ruth's a great little singer with a voice we really love – kind of in the range of late 50s Chris Connor or June Christy, with a sad and boozy tone – quite different than what you'd expect from the somewhat cherry look of the cover! This album's one of the few she ever recorded – a solid and intimate jazz-based effort, with backings arranged by Lou Stein and players that include Joe Newman on trumpet and Frank Wess on tenor – both of whom give things a wonderfully soulful feel! A great one from the years when girl singers really got their due in the recording industry – and titles include "Who Am I", "Gentleman Friend", "My Shining Hour", "Calypso Blues", and "Sleighride In July".

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 ... $2.99
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 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

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.

A surprisingly great set of tracks from one of our favorite arrangers of all time! 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
(Mono pressing with deep groove.)
