Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. Used ... $9.99
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 UnlimitedFeeling Free ... LP
MPS, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the grooviest of many groovy albums that the Singers Unlimited cut for MPS – largely because of some great arrangements by Pat Williams! Pat gives the group a nice little zip – with some large jazzy arrangements that aren't too goofy, and which work well with their perfect harmony vocal style. Production is sublime too – airy, but never sleepy – and the record has an incredible sound that's hardly ever been duplicated again in the studio! The album features the Singers doing some great standards and covers – like "On A Clear Day", "Skylark", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", and "Green Dolphin Street" – as well as the nice original "Feeling Free With Patrick B". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a split top seam.)

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedSingers Unlimited With Rob McConnell & The Boss Brass ... LP
MPS, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by this hip vocal ensemble – set to arrangements by leader Gene Puerling, and some very swinging instrumental backings by Rob McConnell! The album's got a freer, more grooving feel than some of the group's other work – with some beautiful songs that have incredible harmonies floating and drifting about. Titles include "Dindi", "A Beautiful Friendship", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Chelsea Morning", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Tangerine", and "Laura". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedA Capella 1 ... LP
MPS, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavenly work by one of the greatest vocal jazz combos ever! The Singers Unlimited cut many mighty albums for MPS with arrangements by some of the label's best bandleaders – but this one features them all alone, with only their voices to hold them up, which they do wonderfully, thanks to some crack arrangements by Gene Puerling of the group! The approach is natural – given that their vocal interplay was always the group's strongest calling card – and thanks to sublime MPS production, acapella vocals have never sounded so amazing. Titles include "The Fool On The Hill", "Emily", "Since You Asked", "Lullaby", and "London By Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedA Capella 2 ... LP
MPS, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best-remembered work of this legendary vocal group – a sublime session of unaccompanied vocals, done with no other instrumentation alongside the warm harmonies of the quartet! The sound here is really amazing – simple, elegant, but filled with undeniable magic – and far far different than any other hokey acapella work of the time. The acapella sound here has no doo wop or vocalese references – and is instead a warm, wonderful pillow of sound – forged through the unique arrangements of leader Gene Puerling, and carried off beautifully by all members of the group. Titles include a great version of Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Clair" – plus the tunes "Girl Talk", "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "Nature Boy", and "Lost In The Stars". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedEventide ... LP
MPS, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweetly dreamy vocal group numbers from the great Singers Unlimited – working here with orchestral backings by Robert Farnon, arranged by Gene Puerling of the group. The album has a wonderfully mellow feel, as you'd expect by the title of the set – and tracks drift along in a heavenly harmony mode that's not nearly as hokey as some of the group's other work. Titles include "Eventide", "Marlies", "Yours Truly Rosa", "I Loved You", and a great reading of Satie's "Gymnopedies". LP, Vinyl record album

MPS, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums cut by this legendary MPS vocal group – featuring vocal arrangements by Gene Puerling, leader of The Singers, and instrumental arrangements and backing by the very groovy Pat Williams! Williams really gets the feel of the group just right, and his instrumentation gives them plenty of room to vocalize, but also lets the songs take off in a nice breezy way. Personnel include Tom Scott, Clare Fischer, and Dave Grusin – and moody mellow tracks include "Just Friends", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", "When The Sun Comes Out", and "Eleanor Rigby".

✨✧ Singers UnlimitedJust In Time ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Singers Unlimited meet up with the Roger Kellaway Cello Quartet – in a very groovy album of tunes that has Kellaway's strings gliding nicely next to the voices! The sound is still quite intimate – in that beautiful close-mic'ed way that made the Singers' MPS albums so transcendent – and group member Gene Puerling is strongly at the helm of the set – directing the voices in pillowy waves of sound, and making for that heavenly Singers Unlimited approach that blew away most other vocal groups that were still left in the game! Tracks include "My Foolish Heart", "Sleep Loved", "Impossible", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stone Ground Seven", and "Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah" – done surprisingly well! LP, Vinyl record album

Clare Fischer with 2+2 PlusFree Fall ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $21.99
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". CD

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... CD
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

✨✧ Anita KerrAll You Need Is Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
All you need is love – that, and some great vocals and backings as well! Anita Kerr really gets groovy on this little set – taking the famous sound of her harmony quartet into some great late 60s territory – a range of pop tunes hinted at by the Beatles reference on the cover – all arranged and conducted by Anita herself, and produced with some great Sunshine Pop touches! The mixed male/female sound of the quartet is a nice precursor to the 70s recordings by Singers Unlimited – sweet and smooth, but bumped along by a groove on most of these tracks – and titles include "Autumn Afternoon", "No Salt On Her Tail", "Holiday", "A Natural Woman", "Never My Love", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", and "The Last Waltz". CD features bonus tracks – "The Smile You Save For Strangers", "I Can't Help Remembering You", and "For Bert". CD
