Frank D'RoneAfter The Ball ... CD
Verve, 1960. Used ... $4.99
One of the few albums ever cut by singer Frank D'Rone – an excellent vocalist in the Pal Joey mode! Frank hailed from Chicago, and was a second (or third) tier singer – a bargain basement Sinatra, with a rougher style that actually has a great edge, and which recalls the tougher days of barroom gigs for singers who weren't so lucky as those with their name in lights. Billy May handled the arrangements on the set, giving D'Rone a swinging, jazzy kind of feel that pushes the record a bit farther than his other Mercury album from the 50s – and the whole thing's brings a nice punchy kind of feel to tracks that include "It's You Or No One", "Warm All Over", "After The Ball", "Oh Look At Me Now", and "Why Can't This Night Go On Forever".

John ScofieldHand Jive ... CD
Blue Note, 1993. Used ... $5.99
A really great funky moment from guitarist John Scofield – kind of a bridge between the chromatic hues of his music from the 80s, and the tighter, sharper direction he'd take in years to come! The set has some classic-styled soul jazz elements at the core, really living up to the cover image – including Hammond from Larry Goldings and tenor from Eddie Harris – both of whom really deepen the sound of the record, especially when Scofield is still sliding out into some of the fuzzier tones in his bag. Rhythms are nice and tight too – with Dennis Irwin on bass, Bill Stewart on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – and tracks include "Don't Shoot The Messenger", "She's So Lucky", "Do Like Eddie", "Dark Blue", "I'll Take Les", and "Out Of The City".

✨✧ VariousLet's Jump – Swingers & Humdingers From Modern Records ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of jump blues from the postwar years – all pulled from the never-ending vaults of the Modern Records label – home to some of the coolest cats working the LA scene at the time! The music here is part R&B, part soulful swing, and always delivered with that near-perfect sound that Modern could always hit – a way of cutting tracks that were always on the most sophisticated side of the spectrum, but which also came across with the kind of gutsy energy that was bound to inspire the sort of dancefloor moves you see on the cover! Yet the set's also not just another batch of rare tracks from the late 40s – as the selection, sound, notes, and overall presentation are superb – on titles that include "Meet Me With Your Black Dress On" by Jimmy Nelson, "Big Fat Mama"by Gene Phillips, "Take The A Train" by Ike Carpenter with Lucky Thompson, "Wiggle Toe" by Oscar McLollie, "Cold Blooded Boogie" by Jim Wynn, "Cotton Tail" by Benny Carter with Ben Webster, "Tick Tock" by Marvin & Johnny, "Deep Purple" by Jimmy Jackson All Stars, "Getting High" by The Flairs, "Boogie All Night Long" by Lillie Greenwood, and "Jumpin At The Woodside" by Jerry Brent.
