Kitty WhiteNew Voice In Jazz ... LP
Mercury, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
Kitty White's first album for Mercury – a sublime set recorded right at the height of Mercury's jazz years – and done in a personal, unfettered style that's really great – right up there with more famous albums for the label by Dinah Washington or Sarah Vaughan from the same time. Backing is by a small combo that includes Gerald Wiggins on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Callender on bass, and Chico Hamilton on drums – plus some especially nice tenor sax work from Georgie Auld, who cuts in nicely next to Kitty's dark-hued vocals. Titles include "Skylark", "So Many Beautiful Men", "If You Were Mine", "Among My Souvenirs", "Softly", "Out Of This World", and "See Saw". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Emarcy pressing with drummer logo and deep groove. Cover has a bit of pen on back.)

✨✧ Hiroshi SatoOrient ... LP
Kitty (Japan), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence of vocals on about half the tracks give things a nice sense of structure and soul before the keyboards come in and really take off – some mighty nice work on a Yamaha CP-30, which creates some especially great sounds on the instrumental tracks! Sato plays keyboards, and so does Hidehiko Koike – and the record features some great percussion from the mysterious "Pecker". Titles include "Jo Do", "Picnic", "Kalimba Night", "Son Go Kuw", "Doncama", and "Sora Tobu Jutan". LP, Vinyl record album

Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... CD
Cadet, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! CD

Lee DorseyRide Your Pony – Get Out Of My Life, Woman ... LP
Amy, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stunning album of raw New Orleans soul – recorded by the great Lee Dorsey, with production by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn! The record falls in the same camp as The Meters – and although Dorsey's work has vocals, the choppy instrumental backing is pure Crescent City all the way – even though the cover art oddly features a bunch of teenagers in New York City! Titles include the monster funky break track "Get Out Of My Life Woman", the wonderfully funky "Ride Your Pony", plus loads of other nice ones like "The Kitty Cat Song", "So Long", "Work Work Work", "Shortnin Bread", "Can You Hear Me", and "People I Wish You Could See".

Glen GlennGlen Glenn Story/Everybody's Movin Again ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s/1982. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of albums from rockabilly legend Glen Glenn – one vintage, one with material from his great comeback stretch! First up is The Glen Glenn Story – an excellent collection of work from Glenn – a singer with roots in the Ozarks, but who made his later fame cutting some key early rockers on the LA scene of the 50s! This set's maybe the best chance you'll ever get to hearing Glen at his best – as it pulls together excellent cuts from the Era label that easily rival some of the best rockabilly from Memphis or other southern cities at the time – tracks that blast out of the box with Glenn's great guitar work, twanging style of singing, and strong use of bass at the bottom – a groove that still sounds great, even when things move into a slightly more mainstream vein. Many cuts here are familiar numbers, but really take on a new sound in Glen's hands – and titles include "One Cup Of Coffee", "If I Had Me A Woman", "Baby Let's Play House", "Kitty Kat", "Blue Jeans & A Boy's Shirt", "I Got A Woman", and "Everybody's Movin". Everybody's Movin Again is a crackling comeback from the mighty Glen Glenn – one of those rare rock singers from the early years who sounded every bit as great in the 80s as he did at his start! Glenn was languishing in obscurity throughout the 70s, but really got rediscovered thanks to new interest in his classic singles – and got the chance to record in a wonderfully faithful setting here with Ace Records – who nicely avoid any attempt at all to clean up the sound, or try to make Glenn sound like a crossover act. The guitar and vocals are superb, and the whole thing's got a rockabilly twang that goes right back to his roots – on titles that include "Come On", "Flip Flop Fly", "Down The Line", "Rock N Roll Ruby", "Mean Woman Blues", and "Ugly & Slouchy". CD also features two bonus tracks too. CD

✨✧ Ramsey LewisRamsey (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. Used ... $25.99
A sweet late 70s groover from Ramsey – not as all-out electric as some of his earlier work for Columbia, but done with some nice arrangements that have a full and soulful feel! There's a bit of Kalimba/Earth Wind & Fire soul to the mix – and some tracks have production by James Mack and soulful backing vocals by Kitty & The Heywoods – both elements of which serve to provide a nice platform for Ramsey to soar over the top on Steinway. A few cuts feature a bit of electric keys, but overall, the style's in that "acoustic solo instrument over electric backings – in the manner that 70s mainstream fusion was using heavily at the time. Titles include "Dancin", "I'll Always Dream About You", "Every Chance I Get", and "I Just Can't Give You Up". CD

Sonny StittSoul Girl ... LP
Paula, 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An oft-overlooked, but very nice record from Sonny Stitt – recorded in Chicago in the early 70s, and with two different types of groups that show off both sides of the city's jazz scene at the time! O the first 4 numbers, the group is a bit on the larger side – giving the material a nice Cadet Studios touch to it – with Richard Evans on bass, Morris Jennings on drums, Tennyson Stephens on piano, a bit of strings, and vocalizing by Kitty Hayward. The remaining tracks are done in a smaller setting – and they feature a rare appearance by Muhal Richard Abrams on piano, who plays straight stuff here – in a quartet with Wilbur Campell and Cleveland Eaton. A rare record from Sonny – but it's an entirely worthy one! Includes "Got To Get Over", "Soul Girl", "Jeep Blues" and "I Know That You Know" with the larger group, plus the quartet pieces "I Should Care", "Eight Track Blues" and "Gone With The Wind".

VariousKev Beadle Presents Private Collection 2 – Independent Jazz Sounds From The 70s & 80s ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Kev Beadle dips into his private collection, and comes up with a stunning batch of jazzy tracks in the process! The grooves here aren't as locked up as the cover might imply – because some of these cuts are ones the global scene has dug for years – but they're definitely the kind of tracks that really need reviving, especially in a wonderful collection like this – where each new cut seems to bring out the best of the others! All tracks are nice and long, and most have some sort of vocals – blended with modal rhythms, Brazilian touches, and strong soulful solos throughout. Titles include "Kitty Bey" by Byron Morris & Unity (which is not on the CD version), "Music In My Heart" by Kathryn Moses, "Yours Is The Light" by Paz, "Dreams Can Be" by Janet Lawson, "He Loves You" by Seawind, "I'm Tryin To Find A Way" by Stanley Cowell, "Ferrovias" by Grupo Medusa, and "Bamba" by Dimenzio. 8 tracks on the 2LP version.

VariousMore Mellow Cats & Kittens – Hot R&B & Cool Blues 1946 to 1952 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Excellent music from that postwar stretch when it seemed like all the genres were wonderfully unstable – and so may different sounds and styles were coming into contact with each other! This set serves up a brilliant batch of genre-crossing sounds from the LA scene at the time – music that isn't quite jazz, isn't really blues, maybe hints at R&B to come – yet which somehow bristles with the best that all those styles had to offer – and a lot more too! The work here is all from the stunningly deep catalog of Modern Records – and the collection features 15 tracks that have never been issued before – all documenting the wonderful wealth of fresh styles coming out of LA at the time. The work here has echoes of bop, swing, and lots of soulful modes to come – and titles include "Yas Yas Yas" by Three Bits Of Rhythm, "Bardu's Boogie" by Bardu Ali, "Just Got Back" by Jimmy Grissom, "How Long" by Kitty Stevenson, "Bacon Blues" by Clarence Williams, "Cake Jumps" by Al Cake Wichard, "Goodnight Wherever You Are" by The Scamps, "Lazy Daisy" by The Noc-Tunes, "Sister Kool Breeze" by Jake Porter, "Billboard Special" by tiny Webb, "Looky Ploot" by Emmitt Slay & His Slayriders, "Going Home Blues" by Hootie McShann, "Your Red Wagon" by Butch Stone, and "Jive I Like" by Pearl Traylor.

✨✧ Ken NordineStare With Your Ears ... LP
Snail, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Ken Nordine's trippiest albums! This was released on Ken's own Snail Records label in the late 70's, and it's got a very different feel than his classic Word Jazz LPs on Dot. There's still a lot of cool processed vocals, and weird production in which Ken talks with himself in many different voices, but there's also some added instrumentation, and even a few tracks that you could call "songs". The musicians are an odd batch of players from the Chicago scene, including Odell Brown and Manfredo Fest, and Kitty Haywood also sings vocals on some of the album. Titles include "Smelts", "Scratch", "Angel's Lament", "Island", "Mister Blister", and "Cracks In the Ceiling". LP, Vinyl record album
