Carmen LundyGood Morning Kiss ... LP
Blackhawk, 1985. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A fantastic record – one of the best jazz vocal records of the 80s, and a real bright spot in an otherwise dim decade! The set is Carmen's debut – and it's a masterful self-produced effort that immediately put her in the ranks of the ultra-hip, ultra-soulful jazz crowd – singers like Betty Carter and Dee Dee Bridgewater, both of whom took a lot longer to sound this good than Carmen! The record is set in a perfect setting – Carmen working closely with musicians headed up by brother Curtis on bass, and including soulful players like Bobby Watson, Rene McLean, Cecil Bridgewater, Jon Faddis, and Harry Whitaker. The whole thing's great – the kind of righteous vocal set that few singer ever seem to make this well – and titles include some great originals like "Good Morning Kiss", "Time is Love", and "Perfect Stranger" – plus excellent versions of "Dindi", "Love For Sale", and "The Lamp Is Low".

✨✧ MtumeKiss This World Goodbye ... LP
Epic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mark StewartKiss The Future – Mark Stewart, The Maffia & The Pop Group ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/1980s. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
An incredible look at the dark talents of Mark Stewart – one of the most bracingly fresh artists of the post-punk years, and a key link between rock and dub cultures at the time! Stewart first grabbed attention for his funky punk and politics as lead singer of The Pop Group – but then moved into a space where dub, hip hop, and rock all came together under the guidance of producer Adrian Sherwood – who matched Stewart's vocals with instrumentation from the Sugarhill Gang and production styles influenced by the most experimental work from Jamaica! Sherwood's ear was a perfect match for the darkness of Stewart's themes – and together, the pair made some incredible work during the early 80s. This great collection brings together a few key moments from Mark's Pop Group years, plus the best of the Sherwood 80s productions – and even brings in some impressive recent work that shows that Stewart hasn't lost his edge at all. Titles include "We Are All Prostitutes", "Beyond Good & Evil", "Hysteria", "Jerusalem", "High Ideals & Crazy Dreams", "The Lunatics Are Taking Over The Asylum", "We Are Time", "Radio Freedom", "Hypnotised (Unique New York 12" version)", and "The Puppet Master".

✨✧ VariousSlow Grind Fever Vols 5 & 6 – Still More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Those slow grinders are at it again – giving us a heady helping of their "popcorn noir" genre – a style they seem to have coined themselves! The groove here is every bit as great as previous volumes – bits of jazz, R&B, and more – all served up from a host of cool, catchy singles you'd never hope to find in the original – and which work here perfectly to create a great late nite sort of vibe! Make no mistake, most of these numbers are groovers – just the kind that are a bit more kicked back, for post-midnight listening! CD features material from vinyl volumes 5 and 6 – 28 titles that include "Senor Blues" by Rose Hardaway, "Strange Is Love" by The Marquis, "Haunted Sax" by The Night Caps, "Tremblin" by Birdie Green, "Nature Boy" by The Shields, "My Baby" by Nappy Brown, "I Want A Lip" by April Stevens, "Comprende" by Hillard Street with Jack Marshall, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Hard Head (part 1)" by Jon Thomas, "Voodoo Drums" by Aki, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Backwoods" by Bill Doggett, "Voodoo Kiss" by Don Sargent & The Buddies, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Laugh My Heart" by Malcolm Dodds, "Comin Home" by Eddie Jacobs, and "Sinners" by Freddie & The Hitchhikers.

Lola AlbrightDreamsville ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A really unique session of vocal jazz – and one of the few ever directed by Henry Mancini! Lola was best known for her work on TV in the show Peter Gunn, but despite her cheesecake looks, she's actually a pretty nice singer – with a dusky, late nite sort of sound that's perfect for the Mancini backings on the set. The album features a fair number of original Mancini tunes – all in the moody mellow mode as the more famous "Dreamsville" title track – and Lola burns in a nice smokey tone, on tracks that include "Sorta Blue", "It's Always You", "Soft Sounds", "Slow & Easy", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Two Sleepy People", and "Brief & Breezy".

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

CoastersCoasters – 50 Coastin Classics ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $20.99
Sure, they were hitmakers – but we love these guys, and find them to be one of the most radical vocal groups of all time! Under the impeccable guidance of Lieber & Stoller, the group recorded some of the fiercest vocal numbers of the 50s – mixing incredibly soulful vocals with an almost cartoonish ability to conjure up little pictures with words. This 50-track, 2CD set is an amazing tribute to the group's genius – and it includes a wonderful range of material that begins with their early days as The Robins, and which runs up to later sides cut as funky 45s for the Date label in the late 60s. Features the great funk numbers "Soul Pad", "DW Washburn", and "Down Home Girl" – plus totall excellent doo wop tunes like "Shoppin For Clothes", "Hitchin A Ride", "Girls Girls Girls", "The Slime", "Hongry", "Hey Sexy", "The Shadow Knows", "Sorry But I'm Gonna Have To Pass", "One Kiss", "What Is The Secret Of Your Success?", "Idol With The Golden Head", "Besame Mucho", "Stewball", "What About Us", and "Along Came Jones". Also includes the big hits – but the set goes way past that stuff too! CD

Cuff LinksTracy (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Poker (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
A beautiful bit of late 60s pop – featuring a harmony group who can really sing – a group who really hit big with the famous cover tune of the set, but who really sound wonderful throughout! The album was masterminded by the team of Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss – who wrote most of the tunes, and also arranged and produced – and the whole thing's got a no-filler feel that's really great, with loads of original tunes that really pull out the best of the group's great vocal sound. There's a definite Sunshine Pop quality to the record, but the vocals also hearken back to an even better-crafted era of pop – and the whole thing kicks off with the hit single "Tracy", then rolls into gems like "Where Did You Go", "All The Young Women", "When Julie Comes Around", "Lay A Little Love On Me", and "Early In The Morning". CD also features 6 bonus tracks that include "Run Sally Run", "Wake Up Judy", "The Kiss", "Thank You Pretty Baby", and "Robin's World". CD

✨✧ Billy EckstineNo Cover No Minimum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roulette, 1960. Used ... $3.99
A really great album by Billy Eckstine – much more swinging and upbeat than some of his other 50s sessions, and with a strongly pronounced jazz flair overall! The album's supposedly recorded live in Vegas in the wee hours of the morning, and features Billy blowing a bit of trumpet as well as singing – all set to some nicely thumping orchestrations by Bobby Tucker, who really knows how to hit the right groove for this sort of a set. Titles include "Lady Luck", "Have A Song On Me", "Deed I Do", "Without A Song", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Lush Life". CD features a huge amount of previously unissued bonus tracks – titles that include "Prelude To A Kiss", "Fools Rush In", "I Apologize", "Little Mama", "Prisoner Of Love", "Alright Okay You Win", and "In The Still Of The Night".

Bill Evans & Toots ThielemansAffinity ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A beautiful pairing – the keyboards of Bill Evans and harmonica of Toots Thielemans – presented here in a space that marks the record as one of the best from both players in the 70s! Some tunes are sad and blue, and very spare – others a bit more upbeat and lyrical, almost taking us back to Bill's more sprightly modes of the early 60s – and the clear, clean sound offers up the best tones from both players in a perfect space. Other musicians include Marc Johnson on bass, Eliot Zigmund on drums, and Larry Schneider on flute, tenor, and soprano sax – and Evans plays a bit of electric piano in addition to acoustic, something we always love! Titles include "I Do It For Your Love", "The Days Of Wine & Roses", "Jesus' Last Ballad", "The Other Side Of Midnight", "Blue & Green", and "Tomato Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

Peven EverettMy Brazil ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2003. Used ... $9.99
A really unique record from Peven Everett – very different than most of his other work, but equally great! The "My Brazil" reference in the title hints at the style of the work – a bossa-inspired session that has Peven singing gently and soulfully, with mostly just acoustic guitar and percussion to back him up. The sound is incredible – kind of a cross between Joao Gilberto and D'Angelo – with a mellow, laidback style that's immediately infectious. The CD's only got 5 tracks – priced nice and cheap – but every track's a winner, and the album's a pure expression of genius from one of the richest living artists we stock! Titles include "Colored Culture", "Brazilian Lovers", "Innocense", "One Kiss", and "The One I Want". CD
(Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them that differs from CD to CD – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Hugo FriedhoferOne Eyed Jacks ... CD
Tsunami, 1961. Used ... $9.99
A compelling soundtrack for one of the more ill-fated westerns of the 50s! Friedhofer really moves beyond familiar stereotypes here – using offbeat orchestrations, often heavy on woodwinds and solo instrumentation, to create a nice sense of place and space – almost exotic at points, then underscored by bolder dramatic themes that build as the soundtrack unfolds. There's almost as much drama in the music as you'll find on the screen – and titles include "Seduction", "Contrition", "Toast To Friendship", "Kiss Of A Scoundrel/Pursued By Rurales", and "Finale".

George & Ira Gershwin/Fred Astaire/Audrey HepburnFunny Face (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1959. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of the strangest moments of success in the early years of Verve Records – and one of the label's few soundtracks too! The album's one that cleverly combines the core Verve jazz approach with some larger orchestrations by Adolph Deutsche – in a set of tunes based around the compositions of George and Ira Gershwin, used in a new catalog musical that starred Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, and Kay Thompson! The link to the music of the Gershwins is right up there with the important Songbook projects Verve was doing at the time – and of course, Fred Astaire recorded some great material for the label in the 50s too – reminding the world that he could be a pretty great singer when he wanted, even away from film. Fred's maybe the biggest attraction here, as are some of the new tunes added in by Roger Edens and Leonard Gershe – and titles include "Funny Face", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Clap Yo Hands", "S'Wonderful", "Think Pink", "Bonjour Paris", "Let's Kiss & Make Up", and "He Loves & She Loves". CD features 7 more bonus tracks – all rare alternate takes! CD

Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... LP
Perception, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them. The bass is the main driving factor of the tunes – played either by Phil Upchurch or Chuck Rainey – and the tracks bounce along with a fierce and righteous groove that also includes hard riffing on guitar and some sweet piano lines. Players include Mike Longo, James Moody, and Bernard Purdie – and tracks include "N'Bani", "Matrix", "Soul Kiss", "Ding A Ling", and "Alligator". Great stuff, and a crucial album in Dizzy's lost career! Damn funky, too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Griffin BrothersBlues With A Beat – Vol 2 ... CD
Acrobat (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Jumpin R&B work from the mighty Griffin Brothers – one of the best set's we've ever seen to collect their key early singles for Dot! At the time, the group were one of the hottest things going on the DC scene – working in a rough, post-swing style that had plenty of jazz in the mix – but which was also done in a harder, heavier R&B mode overall. Vocalist Margie Day sings with the group on a number of these tunes – but even the instrumental ones stand out nicely, thanks to some searing sax work and a really tightly vamping rhythm section. Titles include "Sweet Walkin' Daddy", "Riffin' With Griffin", "Black Bread", "Griff's Mambo", "Move It On Over", "String Bean", "Don't Talk To Me About Men", "The Price I Pay", "I Want To Hug Ya, Kiss Ya, Squeeze Ya". 27 tracks in all!

Danny GrissettRemembrance ... CD
Savant, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Pianist Danny Grissett is fantastic here – not just bursting out with so many deft colors and changes on both piano and Fender Rhodes, but also really showing some great strengths as a leader too! One of those strengths is the way he puts together the tunes – especially the more familiar numbers, which feel completely fresh here – augmented by some wonderful work on both soprano and tenor sax from Dayna Stephens, who's almost the co-star of the record – especially when he takes on a tune from the lead! The quartet's balanced out nicely by Bill Stewart on drums and Vicente Archer on bass – all players who really seem to "get" each other in the best way possible. In addition to Grissett's original tunes "Renatus", "Lament For Bobby", "Digital Big Foot", and "A Friend Indeed" – the set also features versions of "Just Enough", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Detour Ahead", and "Gallop's Gallop".

Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

There's more electric instrumentation in the mix, and arrangements that have the band stepping out more strongly with some rockish inflections, even though the overall approach is still pretty darn folksy – and handled with that really unique, really personal style that makes the group one of the best of the Brit folk scene from the period. Titles include "Madman", "John Brown", "Miss Kiss", "Love 13", "Winter Harlequin", and "Big A". CD

The main group on the album features Bob Cooper on oboe and tenor, Claude Williamson on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – but a few extra tunes, added to expand the full LP from the original 10" session, feature Hampton Hawes on piano and Red Mitchell on bass – plus the rest of the other group. Titles include "Speak Low", "Love Is Here To Stay", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "On A Slow Boat To China", "Barney's Blues", "A Foggy Day", "Prelude To A Kiss" and "64 Bars On Wilshire" – obviously not a standard!

Morgana KingWith A Taste Of Honey ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic step forward for singer Morgana King – just the kind of record that really let the vocalist unlock all the sort of special power that would set her apart from the rest for decades to come! Morgana's got this completely distinct approach to jazz singing – a mode that's short on attack, robust on decay, and which flows in a way that really illustrates the lessons the lady learned from instrumentation – a sense of flow and phrasing that makes her instantly recognizable, no matter what the setting. Arrangements by Torrie Zito – with the same hip, dark mode he used with Tony Bennett – and titles include "A Taste Of Honey", "Easy To Love", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Corcovado", "When The World Was Young/Young & Foolish", and "Lazy Afternoon".

There's quite a bit of soul influences in the mix – especially the tunes with the female chorus backing vocals. Not a Dixie rock cliche to be found anywhere on it, either! Includes "Dixie Chicken", "Two Trains", "Roll Um Easy", "Kiss It Off", "Fat Man In The Bathtub", "Fool Yourself" and more. CD
