Shirley HornLive At The Monterey Jazz Festival 1994 ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1994. Used ... $2.99
Shirley Horn caught right at the height of her great revival years in the 90s – a time when she was arguably even more expressive and deeply soulful than before! Like most of Horn's best recordings of the time, this live date features a trio – with Shirley herself on piano, Charles Ables on bass, and Steve Williams on drums – all working in warmly swinging territory that's totally great! Horn's vocals are wonderful throughout – very well-recorded, despite the festival setting – and there's an intimacy and sense of personality to the record that you'll be hard pressed to find in some of the other Monterey live dates. Titles include "Blues For Big Scotia", "A Song For You", "How Am I To Know", "Foolin Myself", "The Look Of Love", "Nice N Easy", and the sublime "LA Breakdown". CD

Shirley HornLoads Of Love/Shirley Horn With Horns ... CD
Mercury, 1963. Used ... $3.99
2 early albums by the great Shirley Horn – back to back on one CD! On Loads Of Love, Shirley sings some somber ballads over large orchestrations by Jimmy Jones – in a mode that's different from recent work, but which also shows that she's a great singer with a really sensitive style. The groove's not as open as on some of her small combo recordings, but that also brings out a side of Shirley that you don't always hear on record – a committed, honest, slightly sad style that's quite striking, considering that this was one of Shirley's first albums. Titles include "That's No Joke", "Love For Sale", "Ten Cents A Dance", "Who Am I?", "Only The Lonely", and "Wild Is Love". Horn With Horns is hip stuff from Shirley – very mature and swinging jazz, despite any hokiness you might expect from the "with horns" tag. Arrangements are by Quincy Jones, Thad Jones, and Billy Byers – and the set list features some good current numbers, and a bunch of standards, all redone nicely in a 60s sophistijazz style. Tracks include "Wee Small Hours", "That Old Black Magic", "The Great City", "On The Street Where You Live", and "Let Me Love You". CD

Shirley HornShirley Horn Live At The Four Queens ... CD
Resonance, 1988. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Unissued live work from the great Shirley Horn – recorded in Las Vegas right before her big comeback recordings of the 90s – at a time when Shirley was hardly getting a chance to make an album! That lack of attention hardly matters to Horn, though – as she faces this performance with all of the class, charm, and undeniable soul of her bigger label material – both singing and playing piano with that unique sense of phrasing that made her a standout from the 60s onward – easily one of the coolest jazz talents of her generation – and an artist that we'd rank up there with Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, and a rare few others. The album's got a few especially nice long tracks – which have Shirley stretching out with great long solos on piano, too – in a trio that features Charles Ables on bass and Steve Williams on drums. Titles include "Meditation", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Hi Fly", "Just For A Thrill", "Blues For Big Scotia", "Lover Man", and "Isn't It Romantic". CD

Shirley HornWhere Are You Going? ... LP
Perception, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A beautiful lost album by Shirley Horn, and unlike anything else she's ever done. Recorded in a period of obscurity, this LP features a stunning range of material, such as the cuts "Consequences of a Drug Addict Role", a haunting 10 minute mood piece on addiction, "L.A. Breakdown", which has never sounded so meaningful, and Bobby Scott's "Where are You Going?" and "Taste of Honey", done here in fantastic arrangements. Much more like Betty Carter's self-produced LPs than Shirley Horn's other LPs ever were! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shirley HornLoads Of Love ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early greatness from Shirley Horn – and a set that already has her stretching out her talents as a vocalist! Shirley sings some somber ballads over large orchestrations by Jimmy Jones – in a mode that's different from recent small combo work, but which also shows that she's a great singer with a really sensitive style – a vocalist who can be traditional when needed, yet still hold onto some hip modern inflections too. The set's got a committed, honest, slightly sad style that's quite striking, considering that this was one of Shirley's first albums – and titles include "That's No Joke", "Love For Sale", "Ten Cents A Dance", "Who Am I?", "Only The Lonely", and "Wild Is Love".

✨✧ Shirley HornViolets For Your Furs ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great European work from Shirley Horn – recorded live, in a setting that really lets her stretch out nicely – almost as if she's finding the new sort of maturity that would mark her music in the 80s, right during the space of the concert! The format is quite spare – just Horn's piano behind her vocals, plus bass from Charles Ables and drums from Billy Hart – the last of whom is especially restrained – often keeping way off to the side, but stepping in nicely when Shirley needs him to swing. And as on some of Horn's best records, the bass is key to the whole sound – inflecting the vocals with these deep tones that are beautiful – almost a nodding response to the careful emotion she brings to her lyrics. Titles include "Lover Man", "Violets For Your Furs", "Baby Won't You Please", "My Man", "More Than You Know", and "Our Love Is Here To Stay". CD

Mark MurphyBeautiful Friendship – Remembering Shirley Horn ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
Tremendous work from the great Mark Murphy – a great reminder that he's still one of the greatest jazz vocalists to come our way in the past 50 years! The short set's a loving tribute to the late Shirley Horn – delivered by Mark in some of his most personal, poetic modes in years – with backing from a trio that features Alex Minasian on piano and Curtis Lundy on bass – plus guest trumpet from Til Bronner on two of the album's tracks! Bronner's trumpet rings out warmly alongside Murphy's vocals – which have the same edge we've loved for so many years. The pairing is one that would definitely make Shirley Horn smile – and titles include "A Beautiful Friendship", "Get Out Of Town", "Here's To Life", and "But Beautiful". CD

✨✧ Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A record that's virtually the blueprint for the sound of Hammond organ and tenor sax in soul jazz– the first of Eddie Lockjaw Davis' great run of cookbook albums for Prestige! The record features Lockjaw's gutsy tenor in a group alongside Jerome Richardson's lighter flute – both dancing wonderfully together over organ lines from a young Shirley Scott – playing here with a style that's a bit earthier and more bluesy than some of her later work. Rhythm is by George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and tracks include the classic 12 minute jammer "In The Kitchen", plus shorter tracks "Three Deuces", "The Chef", and "Have Horn, Will Blow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $29.99
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

VariousMid Century Minx – Female Vocal Seduction From The Fifties & Sixties ... CD
Cherry Red/Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
One of the coolest sets of female vocal jazz we've ever heard – a package that goes way past the overdone torch song cliches or the bluer-toned weepies – and reminds us that at the heart of the matter, all the best singers from the time still had an undeniably sexy appeal! The collection features a few bigger names, but most are relatively lesser-known – the kind of singers who were more than happy to stick to the underground and just get the odd recording date here and there – because it meant that they never had to go pop or try to sacrifice their craft in the hopes of a hit record. Titles include "Off Shore" by Ethel Ennis, "For Heaven's Sake" by Anne Phillips, "Beyond The Next Hill" by Beverly Kenny, "Blue City" by Shirley Horn, "A Stranger In Town" by Lurlean Hunter, "Shangri-La" by Dolores Gray, "Baltimore Oriole" by Barbara Lea, "Can't We Be Friends" by Toni Harper, "Along With Me" by Jane Fielding, and "Travlin Light" by Marcy Lutes.

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great later Blue Note session from Stanley Turrentine – a small combo set that's almost a return to the format of earlier years! The group's a strong one – and features Shirley Scott on organ, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums – playing in a style that's subtler and more laidback than his work with Lou Donaldson, but which still has a nice funk undercurrent. Stan's horn is in wonderful form on the record – really taking advantage of the longer tracks to open up with a mellow and exploratory tone – and the team of Scott and Ponder especially sounds great next to each other on the album. Tracks include "Boogaloo", "Buster Brown", and "Common Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stuff SmithCat On A Hot Fiddle ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A late 50s Verve session by Stuff Smith – one in which the jazz violinist does a wonderful job shaking off his often quite hammy persona for a strong, straight up set of standards and well-known bop era cuts! He's got a great crew for these sessions, with the great Shirley Horn on piano on a number of cuts, Red Mitchell on bass, and Harry Saunders on the kit. Stuff does his vocal thing on "Oh, Lady, Be Good" and "Somebody Loves Me", but the by-and-large focus of the set is to shine a light on his skills as a leader. Other tracks include "Undecided", "The Man I Love", "Take The 'A' Train", "'S Wonderful" and more! CD

✨✧ Gloria ColemanSings & Swings Organ ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
Great work from Gloria Coleman – an overlooked genius on the organ, and part of an elite group of female keyboardists that includes Shirley Scott, Rhoda Scott, and Trudy Pitts! Coleman almost never got the chance to record, but clearly had a sharpness that was honed from years in the clubs – a tight, soulful approach to the instrument that also has her working the bass pedals as strongly as the keys – and an ability to sing at all the right times, in a soul-drenched mode that's even deeper than the vocalizations of Trudy Pitts on her late 60s albums for Prestige. The group's got James Anderson on tenor, Dick Griffin on trombone, Ray Copeland on flugelhorn, and Earl Dunbar on guitar – and titles include the funky "Bugaloo for Ernie" a great version of Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa", Blue Mitchell's "Fungi Mama", and the tracks "Blues For Youse", "Love Nest", and "You Better Go Now".
