Shirley HornTravelin' Light ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... $6.99
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 HornLazy Afternoon ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Nice album recorded during a time when Shirley Horn's talents were lesser-known to the world than in her current revival. The set's got Shirley playing piano and singing in a very sweet trio with Buster Williams and Billy Hart. The material's mostly standards, but as usual, Shirley manages to get a whole new level of emotion and feeling out of them! Titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "Gentle Rain", "New York's My Home", and "Why Did I Choose You". CD

Shirley HornTravelin' Light/Horn Of Plenty ... CD
ABC/Universal (Germany), 1963/1965. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Two excellent early albums from Shirley Horn – back to back on a single CD! Travelin Light is 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". Horn Of Plenty is hip stuff from Shirley Horn – very mature and swinging jazz! 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". CD

✨✧ Dena DeRoseWe Won't Forget You – A Tribute To Shirley Horn ... CD
High Note, 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dena DeRose serves up a tribute to the great Shirley Horn – and works here with the kind of hip jazzy combo that Horn definitely would have loved! Like Horn, DeRose both sings and plays piano – plus a bit of Hammond on a few tracks too – and in addition to core trio instrumentation on bass and drums,t he set also features tenor work from Eric Alexander, trumpet from Jeremy Pelt, and baritone from Gary Smulyan – each players who drop in on certain tracks and make things shine wonderfully – like those key instrumental solos on later Shirley Horn records for Verve. Dena's own vocals and piano are great, though – perfectly timed to replicate that soulful swing that always set Shirley apart – a richness of feeling that's never overdone, and which always knows how to groove even at the most expressive moments. Titles include "Sunday In New York", "Big City", "Don't Be On The Outside", "Quietly There", "A Time For Love", "The Great City", and "Wild Is Love". CD

Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good- ... $11.99
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
(Yellow & black label NYC pressing with deep groove and RVG stamp. Cover has a split top seam and a center split on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Johnny HartmanToday/I've Been There ... CD
Collectables, 1972/1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although not as classic as his "classic" recordings, these two albums recorded for Perception in the early 70s prove 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 on the first album by a quartet that includes George Coleman on tenor and Herman Foster on piano, and on the second album by a group with Ken Ascher on keyboards and Jimmy Heath on tenor and flute. The set features interpretations of material that range from brilliant, to daring but off-track – and titles include "Sunday Sun", "Feelin' Groovy", "I've Got To Be Me", "Didn't We", "Summer Wind", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".

✨✧ 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
(Original Liberty pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Quincy JonesFor Love Of Ivy – Original Soundtrack ... LP
ABC, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very hip soundtrack from Quincy Jones – yet another of his well-penned scores to accompany a film starred by Sidney Poitier! The album's maybe not as funky as some of Quincy's other work – but it more than makes up for it with some nice soulful touches that keep things real. One side of the album is instrumental, and the other's got vocals, some by B.B. King (with lyrics by Maya Angelou!), and one by Shirley Horn. Cuts include "You Put It On Me", "Wheelin & Dealin", "Soul Motion", "Black Pearl", and "My Side Of The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love ... LP
Liberty, 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy first pressing – clean, with some surface marks, but not bad overall. Cover is nice too.)

✨✧ 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
