Shirley HornTravelin' Light ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Shirley HornEmbers & Ashes ... LP
Stereocraft, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early album by Shirley, and a haunting batch of lonely songs of lost love that has Shirley singing with her trio of Joe Benjamin and Herb Lovelle. The material's very much in keeping with the "classic" sound that's been so popular during her recent revival, and the record stands as one of her best of the 60's. Even when she's doing standards like "Day By Day", "I Thought About You", and "Like Someone In Love", she manages to bring her own sense of warmth and emotion to the songs, and makes them sound as if they've come from her heart, and not just the pens of New York songwriters. Great stuff, and a darn tough record to find. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and small marks from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... $4.99
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

Johnny HartmanToday ... LP
Perception, 1972. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Perhaps not considered as classic as some of his earlier sides, this album recorded for Perception in the early 70s proves that Johnny was capable of stretching his bag, and not just a play-it-safe interpreter of syrupy ballads. Like a lot of the jazz recordings on Perception at the time (by the likes of Dizzy Gillespie and Shirley Horn), this set's got an edge you wouldn't expect – with some very hip arrangements overall that really sound great – performed by a quartet that includes George Coleman on tenor and Herman Foster on piano. The set features interpretations of material that range from brilliant, to daring but off-track – and titles include "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Didn't We", "Summer Wind", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".

Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/American Jazz Classics (Spain), 1956. Used ... $5.99
One of the strangest things about Abbey Lincoln's career is the fact that, despite her hip affiliations with the left end of the jazz spectrum, she's actually been slotted into a fair number of straighter projects, not only in music, but in film as well. This album's a perfect example of that – and may well be the reason for Abbey's later leanings towards the left – as here, in her debut LP, she comes off as a dreamy girl singer, recorded by Liberty almost in a mode that's similar to Julie London or some of their other gal stars – with complicated backings from Benny Carter and Marty Paich. The record is lacking the stark captivating quality of Abbey's later records, but it does have a certain kind of charm – especially as the love themes in the set are all-adult, at a mature level that you'd really only hear from a rare few other singers, like Shirley Horn or Lorez Alexandria. Titles include "Two Cigarettes In The Dark", "Take Me In Your Arms", "No More", "Affair", "This Can't Be Love", "I Wake Up Smiling", and "Love Walked In" – plus the two bonus tracks "Out Of The Past" and "When A Woman Loves A Man".

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

VariousMid Century Minx – Female Vocal Seduction From The Fifties & Sixties ... CD
Cherry Red/Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $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.

✨✧ Mary StallingsFeelin' Good ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Singer Mary Stallings has a great partner this time around – pianist Bruce Barth, who leads and arranges a sweet little combo for the record – with a relaxed, easygoing groove that might well make this the best Stallings album in years! Mary's got a wonderful voice – trained in years of work on the west coast, only given greater exposure in recent decades – and here she's got this mature sort of swing – groovy, yet never over the top – but also way different than the kind of vocalist who's trying to go for a too-classic sound, but never gets it right. Barth's music brings this great soul jazz vibe to the record – with excellent work from Steve Nelson on vibes, Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, and the great team of Peter and Kenny Washington on bass and drums. Mary's style takes us back to 60s material by Shirley Horn or Marlena Shaw, but also has a very fresh, personal vibe too – maybe partly because of the arrangements. Titles include "Feeling Good", "Reflections", "Girl Talk", "Lil Darling", "Night In Tunisia", "Monk's Dream", and a version of "Afro Blue", with new lyrics by Stalling! CD

Shirley Ellis/Lynne RandellSoul Time/Stranger In My Arms ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $9.99
A stone stormer from Shirley Ellis – a great little cut that shows that the lady had lots more soul than you might guess from her novelty tunes! The track burns with Northern fire right from the start – a rumble of bass, drums, and muted horns all put together by Charles Callelo – which pushes Shirley's vocals along wonderfully! "Stranger In My Arms" is an obscure tune from Lynne Randell – a cut that might be pop in any other flavor, but which takes on a soaring soul groove here! 7-inch, Vinyl record
