Shirley HornLive At The Monterey Jazz Festival 1994 ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1994. Used ... $1.99
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

Mary StallingsFeelin Good ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
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

VariousDoors Of Perception – Dope Funk, Psychedelic Soul, & Acid Jazz From New York City 1970-74 ... CD
Sanctuary, Early 70s. Used ... $12.99
An excellent dip into the wild catalog of Perception Records! The label was home to some of the most compelling soul and funk of the early 70s – and it operated in a boundary-less territory that mixed up fuzzy guitars with heavy beats with soaring sax and sweet harmony vocals. Some of the artists who recorded for the label are best known for their work there – like Black Ivory or Wanda Robinson – and others made rare sessions for Perception – like Dizzy Gillespie and Shirley Horn – that really stand out from the rest of their work! This 20 track set offers a perfect sampling of the work on the label – and it includes a wild variety of tracks like "Alive" by Larry Young, "Get Some Of This" by Madhouse, "I Can't Get No Higher" by The 8 Minutes, "Consequences Of A Drug Addict Role" by Shirley Horn, "Too Sad To Tell" by Debbie Taylor, "Life Love & Peace" by The Exciters, "Alligator" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Rock Steady" by Julius Brockington, "Naturally Good" by Bartel, "Stop Me" by Benny Johnson, and the main theme to "Brother On The Run" by Johnny Pate & Adam Wade!

VariousJazz Club – Jazz Ladies ... CD
Jazzclub/Verve (Germany), 1950s/1960s. Used ... $4.99
The Jazz Ladies here are all pretty hip ones – vocalists from the 50s and 60s who recorded for a variety of labels that include Mercury, Decca, Verve, Philips, and Kapp – presented here in a great blend of familiar and obscure artists! The collection dips way deeper than the usual "old vocalist" sort of set we get over here in the US – and although you'll hear Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan in the package, you'll also get work by Sue Raney, Bev Kenney, Rita Reys, and other less-remembered singers. 18 tracks in all – including "They Can't Take That Away From Me" by Peggy Lee, "Undecided" by Beverly Kenney, "A Beautiful Friendship" by Sue Raney, "Give Me The Simple Life" by Carmen McRae, "Deed I Do" by Rosemary Clooney, "You Hit The Spot" by Ella Fitzgerald, "A Fine Romance" by Margaret Whiting, "Mack The Knife" by Shirley Horn, "My Funny Valentine" by Rita Reys, and "Rhode Island Is Famous For You" by Blossom Dearie.

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

✨✧ Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love ... CD
Liberty (Japan), 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". CD
