Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $7.99 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 UnlimitedA Capella 1 ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1971. Used ... $9.99
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". CD

Singers UnlimitedA Capella 3 ... LP
MPS, 1979. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Three guys, one gal, and nothing else – just voices with no other instrumentation, and one of the best-ever realizations of the amazing Singers Unlimited sound! Although often associated with the superb studio sound of the MPS label, the group were often at their best when just working vocally – letting the voices fold over one another, grow in the warmth of their company, and issue forth in beautiful waves of sound that no other groups could ever hope to match. The production is impeccable – beautifully rich and deep, with a sonic quality that never even needs the missing instruments in the session – and there's also a surprising groove here too, but one that's never forged through hokey tricks or gimmicks. Titles include the sublime "One More Time Chick Corea", plus "Anything Goes", "The Way We Were", "All The Things You Are", "I Wish You Love", "Someone To Light Up My Life", and "Sweet Lorraine".

Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Clare Fischer & Salsa PicanteClare Fischer & Salsa Picante Present 2+2 ... LP
MPS/PA USA, 1980. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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- ... $6.99
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'sHi Lo's Now! ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
By the time of this early 80s recording, original Hi-Lo's member Gene Puerling had been crafting sly vocal jazz gems for MPS with the Singers Unlimited – mixing together smooth 70s production and slight electric instrumental touches, to get a sublime sound that took the harmony approach of the 50s male quartets to whole new limits! On this set, he's back with his original group, giving them the same treatment – adding in some wonderful west coast backings directed by Clare Fischer, and featuring Fischer on electric piano, Tommy Tedesco on guitar, and Gary Foster on flute. Titles include "Mr Blue", "Quiet Nights", "While We're Young", "Ain't Doin Bad Doin Nothin", and "The Night We Called It A Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene PageHot City/Lovelock ... CD
Atlantic/BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of 70s soul classics from arranger Gene Page – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hot City – an excellent album of Barry White-styled instrumentals – put together by Barry's right hand man Gene Page, and produced by Barry himself! The record's one of the best that Gene Page ever cut – apart from his seminal blacksploitation soundtracks – and it's very much in the mode of White's Love Unlimited Orchestra albums from the same time, although perhaps with less of a string section – and more of an emphasis on funky drums at the bottom. Players are an all-star cast of LA studio groovers that includes David T Walker and Ray Parker on guitar, Ernie Watts and Wilton Felder on saxes, and Clarence McDonald on keyboards – and tracks are mostly originals by Page and White. Titles include "Jungle Eyes", "She's My Main Squeeze", "I Am Living In A World Of Gloom", "Satin Soul", and "To The Bone". Lovelock features Gene Page at the height of his 70s powers – using all the talents he forged as a background artist for other soul talents, and all the majesty he added to his soundtrack work – all focused nicely into a sweet set of warmly soulful grooves! The style's a bit clubby, but also has some wider depth too – maybe an undercurrent of fusion that comes from players like Lee Ritenour and David T Walker on guitar, Joe Sample and Sonny Burke on keyboards, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet – who find a way to work wonderfully alongside the albums vocals from singers Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Jim Gilstrap – all with a style that's not unlike some of the best Quincy Jones material of the time! As with Quincy, there's a sense of care and confidence that really holds the album together – on titles that include "Higher My Love", "Organ Grinder", "Into My Thing", "Wild Cherry", "Fantasy Woman", "Straw In the Wind", and "Together Whatever".

✨✧ 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!)
