Shirley HornShirley Horn With Horn ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
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
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a bit of marker on the back.)

✨✧ Shirley HornLazy Afternoon ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)

✨✧ Shirley HornTravelin' Light/Horn Of Plenty ... CD
ABC/Universal (Germany), 1963/1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good- ... $19.99
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, RVG stamp, and Not For Sale stamp. Cover has a Not For Sale stamp and some pen on back.)

✨✧ AK SalimModern Sounds Of AK Salim – Complete Savoy Recordings 1957/1958 (Flute Suite/Stablemates/Pretty For The People/Blues Suite) ... CD
Savoy/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1957/1958. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A full serving of work from the amazing AK Salim – a 2CD set that brings together his complete sessions for Savoy Records! Salim was one of the father-reaching jazz musicians of his time, and always tried to create albums that had a more "tied together" approach than some of his contemporaries' albums. This approach usually resulted in a album like Flute Suite – one based around a "suite" of similar musical themes – in this case, a flute-based one from the dual frontline of Frank Wess and Herbie Mann, both of whom really shine in the setting! Other players include Joe Wilder on trumpet, Frank Rehack on trombone, and Hank Jones on piano – and Herbie Mann also plays a bit of tenor sax as well. The tunes are all originals by Salim, and really make great use of the twin-flute sound – and titles include "Loping", "Ballin The Blues", "Miltown Blues", "Pretty Baby", and "Duo Flautist". Next up on the CD is material from the album Stablemates – a session that has Salim leading a full horn section that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Johnny Coles on trumpet, Buster Cooper on trombone, and Howard Austin on baritone sax – all coming together in a way that's tightly arranged on the heads, but which lets key players break out in some really wonderful solo moments. Other players include Kenny Burrell on guitar and Tommy Flanagan on piano – and titles include "Black Talk", "D Minor Dipper", and "Dejeuner". Pretty For The People follows – a swirling batch of soulful jazz tracks, featuring an octet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Johnny Griffin on tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Max Roach on drums, and Chino Pozo on congas. Salim has a real talent for taking a group like this and making them swing hard – kind of in the way that Slide Hampton did on his early 60s sides for Atlantic, and with a similar soulful bent – especially given the strong percussion work on the set. The soloists break out of the group strongly on the best cuts – and all tunes are over five minutes long, with ample solo space. Titles include "Blu Binsky", "RU12", "Shirley Ray", "Ba Lu Ee Du", and "Pretty For The People". Next up is Blues Suite – a record that focuses on the bluer side of jazz, and features some excellent soloists – like Seldon Powell on flute and tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Phil Woods on alto – all playing long soulful passages on Salim originals like "Payday", "Joybox", "Full Moon", and "Blu-Shout". The set's not as modernist oriented as similar work by some of Salim's contemporaries – still with an overall conception, but somewhat more looser swinging – and like some of AK's best other sessions from the time, has a feel that's quite like some of Slide Hampton's leaner, more soul jazz moments. CD also features the track "June Is Bustin Out All Over" – from the Savoy album Jazz Is Busting Out All Over. CD

✨✧ VariousVerve Unmixed ... CD
Verve, 1950s/1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of older tracks – at a really nice price! The package features 12 older jazz and vocal tunes that formed the basis for the slick new set Verve Remixed – the original versions of tracks on that set, offered here without any remixing, so that you can put the classics back to back with the new ones, for comparison! And even if you haven't heard Verve Remixed, the package is still a wonderfully priced set of tunes – with a wealth of great vocal jazz performances that are a treat to listen to, no matter what the setting. Titles include "Who Needs Forever" by Astrud Gilberto, "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday, "Hare Krishna" by Tony Scott, "See Line Woman" by Nina Simone, "Return To Paradise" by Shirley Horn, "Feelin Good" by Nina Simone, "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?" by Dinah Washington, and "How Long Has This Been Going On" by Carmen McCrae.

Verve, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic jazz at a great price – and the complete original tunes used in the 3rd volume of the Verve Remixed project! The package offers a whopping great batch of older vocal work from the Verve, Mercury, and Philips catalogs – all for a price that's hardly more than that of a fancy cup of coffee at the kind of places that like to play older vocal work a heck of a lot! Titles include "Speak Low" by Billie Holiday, "Peter Gunn" by Sarah Vaughan, "Come Dance With Me" by Shirley Horn, "Just One Of Those Things" by Blossom Dearie, "Gentle Rain" by Astrud Gilberto, "Stay Loose" by Jimmy Smith, "Baby Did You Hear" by Dinah Washington, "Lilac Wine" by Nina Simone, "The Boy's Doin It" by Hugh Masekela, and "Fever" by Sarah Vaughan.

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... 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

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

✨✧ 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!
