Oscar Brown JrKicks! – The Best Of Oscar Brown Jr ... CD
Sony/BGP (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
Some of the most unique vocal work ever recorded – a stunning collection of Columbia sides by Oscar Brown Jr, a singer who mixed together equal parts jazz, soul, and folk – and came up with a sound that was all his own! Oscar bubbled out of the hip Chicago scene of the early 60s – and had a much more righteous approach than most of his contemporaries – not only writing his own lyrics for most of the tunes, but working in a genre-blending style that crossed over to a variety of difference audiences. Oscar could groove with the best in a southside club, but also appeal to the northside intellectuals – opening doors wherever he went with a fresh approach to jazz vocals! The set features work from all 4 of his Columbia albums – including a number of tracks on CD for the first time – and features arrangements by Quincy Jones, Floyd Morris, and Ralph Burns – on 23 tracks that include "All Blues", "Work Song", "Excuse Me For Living", "The Snake", "Mr Kicks", "Afro Blue", "Signifying Monkey", "Dat Dere", "Hazel's Hips", "Jeannine", "Opportunity Please Knock", "The Tree & Me", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Tall Like Pine", and "But I Was Cool".

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz ... CD
Impulse/Dunhill, 1960. Used ... $4.99
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns handled the arrangements, and given that the record was issued by ABC a few years before they brought Ray into a country mode, it's interesting to think what might have happened had his career continued this way. There's only a small number of vocal tracks on the record, and most of the rest feature Ray at the organ, grooving away very nicely! Titles include "One Mint Julep", "Moanin", "I've Got News For You", "Mister C", and "Stompin Room Only". CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor/He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not ... CD
Collectables, 1956. Used ... $3.99
Although most of Chris Connor's best recordings for Atlantic have always been darn tough to find, and rarely reissued, this excellent 2-fer makes these classic albums of icy vocals available once again! Chris sings in her best cool voice, with backing by a number of different groups made up of jazz players like Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford – plus some larger orchestral arrangements by Ralph Burns. Cuts include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "Circus", "Something To Live For", "High On A Windy Hill", "Thursday's Child", "About The Blues", and "Round About". We should also let you know that two tracks have been switched from the Chris Connor album for some reason – possibly because of trouble with the original masters. CD

Gary McFarland/Bob BrookmeyerHow To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying/Gloomy Sunday & Other Bright Moments ... CD
Verve, 1961. Used ... $21.99
How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, a very swingin' instrumental version of the score to this goofy musical, arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, with a batch of players like Clark Terry, Oliver Nelson, Phil Woods, and Joe Newman – so you know the whole thing's tight and groovy. Includes nice renditions of "Grand Old Ivy", "Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm", and "Paris Original". Gloomy Sunday & Other Bright Moments is an overlooked treat recorded at a time when Verve was briefly exploring the jazz orchestra format in the early 60s – through recordings by Stan Getz, Jimmy Guiffre, and here, Bob Brookmeyer. The record features a set of tracks written and/or arranged by Brookmeyer, with help from contemporaries like Eddie Sauter, Ralph Burns, and Gary McFarland – all of whom were doing similar work for Verve at the time. Players are strong all around – and include Hank Jones, Eddie Costa, Gene Quill, Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Al Cohn, and Phil Bodner – and titles include "Some Of My Best Friends", "Gloomy Sunday", "Where Oh Where", "Days Gone By Oh My", and "Ho Hum".

Ben Webster (with Harry Carney)Music For Loving (Music For Loving/Music With Feeling/Harry Carney With Strings) ... CD
Verve, 1950s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Wonderful stuff! Ben Webster blows soulful late night ballads over strings – a perfect combination, and a wonderful idea that was first executed on two LPs in the 50s: Music For Loving and Music With Feeling, both of which are reissued here with some extra unreleased material! Backings are by Ralph Burns and Billy Strayhorn – both of whom can be trusted to keep things hip, using the strings to create mood, emotion, and tension, instead of a pillow to smother the sound of Webster's incredible tenor work. Added to those two albums and bonus cuts is the even rarer Harry Carney with Strings session, recorded in the same era, and a perfect addition to the package that makes for over 3 LPs worth of material on 2 CDs, all packaged with great notes and some very cool Verve artwork! Titles include "Chelsea Bridge", "Some Other Spring", "Blue Moon", "Early Autumn", "My Fantasy", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Under A Blanket Of Blue", "You're Mine You", "Love's Away", and "All Too Soon".
