Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
One of the first albums cut by the fab Singers Unlimited – and the set that has them backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! The Singers always mixed well with guest jazz talents – and the style of this albums gives their sweet harmonies a nice jazz-based groove and not too much cheese on the top – one of the leanest instrumental settings from their MPS era, and a nicely gliding groove that supports their voices wonderfully! The record includes great versions of "The Gentle Rain", "Once Upon A Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and Thad Jones' great "A Child Is Born" – as well as a pretty crazy rendition of "Sesame Street"!

Singers UnlimitedComplete A Capella Sessions (A Capella Vols 1, 2, & 3) ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971/1974/1979. Used 2CD ... $18.99
Amazing voices, coming together beautifully – with no other instrumentation for accompaniment! The sound of the Singers Unlimited was one of the brightest spots in the 70s catalog of MPS Records – a magical floating of male and female voices, all tied together with inventive arrangements by Gene Puerling (ex-HiLo's), and recorded perfectly in the best MPS mode – but on the three albums in this set, the group went even better – singing alone in the studio with only their own voices for rhythmic and melodic support – hitting notes, tones, and turns of phrases that are simply incredible. There's nothing hokey here, no sort of "retro acapella" mode – as in 70s doo wop revivals – and instead, the Singers carve out a whole new space of their own – a world of sound made only from heavenly voices, but in a way that's hip enough to match the best FM easy styles of their generation. And amidst the heaven, there's also a bit of hell – as the group often have a darker sensibility when presenting their music – a sense of depth that pushes them far away from kitsch! 2CD set features all the tracks from their 3 A Capella albums – a total of 33 tracks that includes "Both Sides Now", "Here There & Everywhere", "Lullaby", "Emily", "Clair", "Yesterday", "My Romance", "Girl Talk", "Sweet Lorraine", "One More Time Chick Corea", "Anything Goes", "Indian Summer", "All The Things You Are", "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "I Wish You Love", and "Lost In The Stars".

Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedChristmas ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy batch of Christmas carols from the Singers Unlimited, harmonizing in their trademark mellow, jazzy style over some nice arrangements by group member Gene Puerling! The feel is very sweet – fantastically harmonic, and set to impeccable MPS production – and most of the tunes here are taken in short versions that slide groovily into one another. Titles include "Deck The Halls", "Caroling Caroling", "Nigh Bethlehem", "It Came Upon The Midnight Clear", "Silent Night", "Joy To The World", 'Wassail Song", "Good King Wenceslas", "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".

Clare Fischer & Salsa PicanteClare Fischer & Salsa Picante Present 2+2 ... LP
MPS/PA USA, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums that Clare Fischer ever recorded – featuring his electric Latin fusion group Salsa Picante, fronted by a two-man/two-woman vocal quartet who give the album kind of a "Brasil 66 meets Singers Unlimited" kind of sound! Fisher is on Fender Rhodes, and the group features Poncho Sanchez on conga, percussion by Alex Acuna, and some great reed work by Gary Foster. Tracks include "Du Du", "Legacy", "Guajira Pa La Jeva", "Funiquado", "Melancolico", and a great version of Fischer's excellent "Morning", one of his best and most-recorded compositions!

Clare Fischer with 2+2 PlusFree Fall ... LP
Discovery, 1986. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Very groovy work from keyboardist Clare Fischer – a musician we first fell in love with from Cal Tjader albums in the 60s, and continued to love for his MPS Records material in the 70s! Here, Clare's working with the 2+2 vocal ensemble – a gently swinging male/female harmony group that has a similar sound to the Singers Unlimited – warm harmonies that have a sunny, breezy finish alongside Clare's keyboards and the grooves. The production of the tracks is similar to the smooth MPS mode used by that group and Fischer – and there's also electric west coast Latin backing from a Latin jazz group that features Fischer on keyboards. The sound is great if you dig Clare's later electric work – and titles include "Sextet", "Blues Bossa", "Novios", "Samba Claro", "The Quiet Side", and "Free Fall". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi-Lo'sBest Of The Hi-Lo's – Nice Work If You Can Get It ... CD
Varese, 1950s/1996. Used ... $4.99
Before Free Design, before the Tamba Trio, before the Beach Boys, before the Four Freshmen, the Hi-Los were cooking up the jazzy harmony style that would influence generations of singers. Led by Gene Puerling, who would later go onto form the spooky Singers Unlimited, the youthful Hi-Los had a sound and a style that was nothing short of incredible. Their harmonies were amazing, and they brought a jazzy style to the vocal group scene that blew away all of the hokier groups, like The Four Aces, and other groups of that ilk. This comp's got 18 tracks from the albums The Hi-Lo's I Presume, The Hi-Lo's On Hand, The Hi-Lo's, and The Hi-Lo's Under Glass – with titles like "Skylark", "Lulu's Back In Town", "Too Young For The Blues", and "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

✨✧ Ray ConniffAlone Again Naturally/Theme From The Godfather ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of groovy albums from Ray Conniff – both with a wonderful 70s vibe! Alone Again Naturally takes its title from the leadoff version of the great Gilbert O'Sullivan tune – and Ray conducts his group with a surprisingly bouncy vibe at times – mostly a sing-song mode that has the voices of the Conniff Singers hitting all their best bright modes. The mix of male and female voices is almost recorded in Singers Unlimited modes – but without as much harmonic interplay – and titles include "Because", "Alone Again Naturally", "Run To Me", "Brandy", "Too Young", "Day By Day", and "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast". Theme From The Godfather has Ray Conniff taking on a host of mellow tunes from the mid 70s – mixing his full arrangements with a few electric touches, and really using the Ray Conniff Singers to their best effect! The whole thing has that subtle sensual quality that easy listening was hitting during the sexual revolution – quite a change from the Conniff groove of a generation before, and one that seems an even better fit for the vocals. Titles include "A Horse With No Name", "First Time I Ever Saw Your Face", "The Way Of Love", "Shaft", "Living In A House Divided", and "Without You". CD
(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – also works on standard CD players!)
