✨✧ Shirley HornLive At The Monterey Jazz Festival 1994 ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1994. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 HornShirley Horn Live At The Four Queens ... CD
Resonance, 1988. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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 HornMay The Music Never End ... CD
Verve, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning – and some of the best work we've ever heard from Shirley Horn! We know, we know – you've seen a bit too much of her in the jazz racks of late – but don't let that stop you from picking up this album, because it's amazing! Shirley returns to the spare, subtle simplicity of older albums like Travelin Light and Where Are You Going – working in a trio format that's so stripped down, so mellow, most of the work on the set is really just done by Shirley's vocals. And as when Shirley's singing at her best, the album is filled with tunes that you might have heard before – but which take on a whole new life and imagination in Shirley's hands. For some reason, she seems to find words in these songs we've never heard before – putting them over with new meanings, new emotions, and a sound that's incredibly sublime! Ahmad Jamal and Roy Hargrove make some slight guest appearances on the set, but forget about them – because the real magic is Shirley, sounding greater here than ever! Titles include "Forget Me", "Maybe September", "Everything Must Change", "May The Music Never End", "Take Love Easy", and "Watch What Happens". CD

✨✧ Shirley HornShirley Horn With Horn ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hip stuff from Shirley Horn – very mature and swinging jazz, despite any hokiness you might expect from the "with horn" in the title! The set features the sharp early vocals of Shirley Horn nicely set up with some larger backings – hip arrangements handled by Quincy Jones, Thad Jones, and Billy Byers – with all the groovy 60s punch you can imagine from a lineup like that! And although Horn later became well known for some gentler, mellower cuts, we're huge fans of her singing like this – which has a righteous power that really tops some of the vocalists from the previous generation. Titles include "Wee Small Hours", "That Old Black Magic", "The Great City", "On The Street Where You Live", and "Let Me Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shirley HornTravelin' Light ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of the 60s, and probably the greatest album ever by Shirley Horn! The session's got a beautiful lively sound, with extremely interesting arrangements by Johnny Pate, and a flute/piano/guitar sound that works perfectly with Shirley's lovely voice. The material is a great mix of lesser-known songs, sung with a maturity and honesty that will make your heart break. We love this one way better than any of Shirley's recent albums, and we can't recommend it highly enough! Titles include "Sunday In New York", "Yes, I Know When I've Had It", "Someone You've Loved", "I Could Have Told You", "Travelin Light", and "Don't Be On The Outside". CD

✨✧ Mark MurphyBeautiful Friendship – Remembering Shirley Horn ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisBest Of Eddie Lockjaw Davis – Shirley Scott At The Organ ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956/1957/1958. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing early work from tenorist Eddie Lockjaw Davis – and a record that really shows the way that Lock was crucial in helping bring the Hammond organ into jazz! The sides were all cut in the mid 50s, right around the time of Jimmy Smith's rise at Blue Note – and feature Hammond from either Shirley Scott or Doc Bagby – both players with just the right sort of rough edge and bluesy tones to work perfectly with Davis' mighty horn – lines on the keyboard that push harder than any piano ever could! The tracks are all nice and short – probably mostly cut for the 45 market – and pack even more punch than any of the later work from the Davis/Scott team. Ray Barretto swings in some hip congas on a few cuts – and titles include "Eddie's Function", "People Will Say We're In Love", "I Wanna Be Loved", "Satin Doll", "You Are Too Beautiful", "Lady Bird", "Scotty Boo", "Ebb Tide", "Tiajuana", "Out Of Nowhere", "All Of You", and "All The Things You Are".

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... $2.99
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". CD features bonus track "Avalon". CD

Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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
(Original Liberty pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousJazz Club – Smooth Jazz Christmas ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The smoother side of Christmas – but one that's still pretty festive as well, thanks to a host of contemporary jazz and soul recordings from the past decade or two! The material's a bit more recent than other work in the Jazzclub series, but it still shares the same great ear for selecting a tune – and we've got to say that as far as smooth jazz sets go, this one has a fair bit more depth and imagination than most American attempts at a holiday package for the genre. Titles include "Christmas Time Is Here" by Patti Austin, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Will Downing, "Those Soulful Jingle Bells" by Mark Whitfield, "The Christmas Song" by Phil Perry, "Winter Wonderland" by Shirley Horn, "Blue Christmas" by Laima, "The First Noel" by George Howard, "Looks Like December" by Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Jeff Golub, "Sleigh Ride" by Laura Fygi, and "Hark The Herald Angels Sing" by Russ Freeman.

✨✧ VariousJoyful Jazz – Christmas With Verve Vol 1 – The Vocalists ... CD
Verve, 1950s/1960s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection of Holiday tracks both old and new – pulled from the catalog of Verve Records, and a fair bit of the larger Universal jazz catalog too! The material here mixes old favorites with a few newer recordings – tracks that show that great resonance between jazz vocal styles and Christmas tunes – a pairing that never seems to get old, and which can make for some especially warm moments during the season. Titles include "The Christmas Song" by Mel Torme, "Christmas Time Is Here" by Patti Austin, "It Must Be Christmas" by Judy Holliday, "Peace On Earth" by Peggy Lee, "There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" by Betty Carter, "Peace" by Norah Jones, "Zat You Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Silent Night" by Dinah Washington, "White Christmas" by Ella Fitzgerald, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Diane Schuur, "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" by Billie Holiday, and "Winter Wonderland" by Shirley Horn.

✨✧ Mario Nascimbene/Shirley BasseyL'Arciere Delle Mille E Una Notte/La Lotta Dell'Uomo Per La Sua Sopravvivenza ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Archery action from a flying carpet – all set to a vintage score from maestro Mario Nascimbene! The music's got that full, orchestral vibe of Nascimbene's more famous work of the time – maybe more Italo blood and sandals than some of his epics, with both dramatic flourishes on the percussion and horns, and some cool use of chorus vocals that create a mythical vibe on some of our favorite tracks. The whole thing's maybe not as boldly bracing as you'd expect from the cover image – but it's definitely on the better side of the Italian fantasy score! CD features four more tracks from the 1970 TV show The Fight For Survival – all very different, and completely great! Robert Pregadio handles the orchestrations, and Shirley Bassey sings on three of the four tracks here – with this cool, soulful, dramatic style that's maybe even better than her work on James Bond films!
