Joy BryanJoy Bryan Sings ... LP
Mode/VSOP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A sweet little session of 50s vocal jazz – equally great not just for the singing by Joy Byran, but also for the arrangements by pianist Marty Paich! Paich's captured here at a great early point scoring for singers – and he gives Joy the same fluid jazzy approach that he used on the best Bethlehem albums by Mel Torme – a great thing for the singer, as it really makes the album sparkle a bit more than it might on its own. Joy's a pretty decent singer overall – with a range that's surprisingly deep, and a delivery that's best on the lighter, more sprightly tunes on the session – which are the sort that Paich does his best work with. Players include Bob Enevoldsen, Herb Geller, and Jack Sheldon – and titles include "You're My Everything", "My Shining Hour", "Round Midnight", "My Heart Stood Still", "I Could Write A Book", and "What Is There To Say".

✨✧ Doris DrewDelightful Doris Drew ... LP
Mode/VSOP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A delightful session of west coast vocal jazz – done by singer Doris Drew, who we only know from this album! Doris has a sound that's a bit warmer than some of her contemporaries on the scene – and she's backed here by a great lineup that includes Marty Paich on both piano and celeste, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Herb Geller on alto, and Dave Pell on tenor – plus a bit of added string accompaniment from time to time. The sound is lush, but light – and amazingly recorded so that Doris' vocals stand out starkly on most of the numbers, especially the mellower ones. Titles include "I've Got The Sun In The Morning", "You & The Night & The Music", "I Love You", "I Cried For You", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Once You Find Your Guy", and "If I Should Lose You".

✨✧ Victor FeldmanMallets A Fore Thought (aka Champagne Music For Cats Who Don't Drink) ... LP
Mode/VSOP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really hip little session – as light and breezy at one level as it is tight and swinging! Feldman's the leader of the set on vibes, but the greatest strength of the album comes from the group – a sextet that places Victor in the company of trombonist Frank Rosolino, tenor saxophonist Harold Land, pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, and drummer Stan Levey. The rhythm section is especially fluid on the record – very in the pocket, but without overstating that fact – and they allow for extremely open solo work from Feldman, Land, and Rosolino. Side two of the album is a real smoker – with some great ensemble numbers that open up with tremendous horn work – tight, yet free-thinking and soulful, with some slight modern touches. Titles include "Chart Of My Heart", "Wilbert's Tune", "Evening In Paris", "Fidelius", and "Bass Reflex". LP, Vinyl record album
