✨✧ Shirley HornWhere Are You Going? ... LP
Perception, 1972. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful lost album by Shirley Horn, and unlike anything else she's ever done. Recorded in a period of obscurity, this LP features a stunning range of material, such as the cuts "Consequences of a Drug Addict Role", a haunting 10 minute mood piece on addiction, "L.A. Breakdown", which has never sounded so meaningful, and Bobby Scott's "Where are You Going?" and "Taste of Honey", done here in fantastic arrangements. Much more like Betty Carter's self-produced LPs than Shirley Horn's other LPs ever were! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is in nice shape.)

Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good- ... $39.99
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.)

✨✧ Stuff SmithCat On A Hot Fiddle ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $9.99
A late 50s Verve session by Stuff Smith – one in which the jazz violinist does a wonderful job shaking off his often quite hammy persona for a strong, straight up set of standards and well-known bop era cuts! He's got a great crew for these sessions, with the great Shirley Horn on piano on a number of cuts, Red Mitchell on bass, and Harry Saunders on the kit. Stuff does his vocal thing on "Oh, Lady, Be Good" and "Somebody Loves Me", but the by-and-large focus of the set is to shine a light on his skills as a leader. Other tracks include "Undecided", "The Man I Love", "Take The 'A' Train", "'S Wonderful" and more! 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

Stanley TurrentineCommon Touch ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good+ ... $12.99
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 a cut corner.)

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.

✨✧ Abbey LincolnAbbey Lincoln's Affair – A Story Of A Girl In Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/American Jazz Classics (Spain), 1956. Used ... Temporarily 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" – plus the two bonus tracks "Out Of The Past" and "When A Woman Loves A Man".
