✨✧ Lee WileyNight In Manhattan With Lee Wiley (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1950. Used ... $5.99
A classic set from singer Lee Wiley – and proof that she was one of the best small group jazz vocalists of her time! The album's got a nice small combo swing mode – with players that include Bobby Hackett, Joe Buskin, and Stan Freeman – all backing Lee in a mellow set of familiar numbers, done in an easygoing sort of way. Titles include "Manhattan", "Street Of Dreams", "A Woman's Intuition", "Oh Look At Me Now", and "Soft Lights & Sweet Music". CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly. Out of print.)

Lee WileyWest Of The Moon (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Mosaic, 1956. Used ... $13.99
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his work here than you might expect from some of his other more modern outings. The proceedings have a nice touch of jazz – thanks to players who include Urbie Green on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Moe Wechsler on piano – and although Lee's vocals have a slightly aging quality, that only serves to help the fragile emotions of the best numbers in the set. Titles include "You're A Sweetheart", "This Is New", "Who Can I Turn To Now?", "My Ideal", "Limehouse Blues", "I Left My Sugar Standing In The Rain", and "Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Stars Fell On Alabama" and "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans". CD

✨✧ Lee Wiley & Ellis LarkinsDuologue ... CD
Storyville/Black Lion (Japan), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little concept for a beautiful little album – a "duologue" in which Lee Wiley sings one track, then Ellis Larkins plays the next, and so on – making for a split LP, but one with a lot of variety along the way! Wiley sings on about two thirds of the tracks on the set – working with a small combo that features Jimmy Jones on piano, Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jo Jones on drums, and Bill Pemberton on bass – all of whom provide gentle accompaniment to Lee's traditionally styled vocals. Ellis Larkins plays piano on the rest of the tracks – solo, with that wonderful late nite style of his – an approach that's more complicated than cocktail piano, but a bit more laidback than straighter jazz. Wiley numbers include "My Heart Stood Still", "Give It Back To The Indians", "My Romance", "You Took Advantage Of Me", and "My Funny Valentine". Larkins numbers include "Perfume & Rain", "By Myself", "Looking At You", and "Then I'll Be Tired Of You". CD

Teddi KingRound Midnight (plus Miss Teddi King) ... LP
Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1953. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A very cool Japanese-only record – one that brings together both of the 10" LP sessions from singer Teddi King! Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". Next is Miss Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, from Trio – with insert!)

Barbara LeaBarbara Lea ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956/1957. Used ... $6.99
One of the few 50s albums ever cut from singer Barbara Lea – a great vocalist who seemed to get a bit more of a chance in the studio much later in her life! This session's got a slightly unusual feel – in that it's not really torchy, but also not as outrightly swinging either – and part of that feel might have to do with the backings, which are by 2 different small groups led by trumpeter Johnny Windhurst, who swings things along on the record, but never in a way that's too over the top. Barbara herself has a style that's expressive, but not overly emotive – a bit like Lee Wiley or some of her contemporaries, but slightly "cooler" at points. Titles include "I've Got A Pocket Full Of Dreams", "I Had Myself A True Love", "Baltimore Oriole", "Blue Skies", "My Honey's Loving Arms", and "Nobody Else But Me". CD

✨✧ Doug CarnMy Spirit ... CD
Doodlin, 2016. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn impressive work from Hammond giant Doug Carn – a record that really recalls the brilliance of his famous records from the 70s – thanks to a righteous sound and a strongly spiritual vibe! The set features Doug on Hammond and Deszon Claiborne on drums – plus twin tenors from Howard Wiley and Teodross Avery, who soar out strongly on all numbers – criss-crossing their sound with a fullness that makes the group sound a lot larger than a quartet – and blowing these strongly soulful solos that match Carn's for nonstop energy and imagination. The record's way more than we expected – and is a lot more unbridled than some of the other titles on the Doodlin label – and although we haven't heard Doug on record in years, we can tell that his genius hasn't dimmed a bit. Titles include "My Spirit", "Fatherhood", "Chant", "Mr Kenyatta", "Eternal Triangle", and "Western Sunrise". CD

✨✧ Charles MingusJazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus ... CD
Bethlehem/Rhino, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal album in the career of Charles Mingus – one that really has him honing his sound, and reaching for that trademark mix of modernism and raw emotion that set a whole generation on fire! The album's a lot more freewheeling than other Mingus material from the time – although still a bit more compact than the Atlantic or Columbia sides – and the group's staffed with key early interpreters of Charles' vision – including John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor and baritone, Thad Jones on trumpet, Clem DeRosa on drums, and Jackson Wiley on cello – an instrument that really helps shade in some of the darker corners of the tunes. Titles include great early originals like "Four Hands", "Minor Intrusion", "Thrice Upon A Theme", and "The Spur Of The Moment" – plus his great take on "Stormy Weather", which is a bit stormier than most!

✨✧ VariousEl Primitivo – American Rock & Roll & Rockabilly ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer collection of raw early rockers and rare rockabilly gems – all with a vintage vibe and classic sound that's way more than you'd expect from the image on the cover! The sound here definitely lives up to the "el primitivo" promise – and the tracks include rare numbers from Chess Records, Nash, and the Do Ra Me label – plus a number of never-issued tracks that fit in perfectly here – making for a set that's half rare singles, and half never-heard music! The set's one from the early Ace Records years on CD – when the reissue label was doing great work for the rockabilly scene – with tracks like this, and titles that include "Save It" by Mel Robbins, "Oh Yeah", by Wally Jeffrey, "I Wanna Dance All Night" by Chuck Wiley, "Explosion" by Cliff Nash, "That'll Get It" by The Imps, "I Wanna Shake It" by Curtis Hobock, "The Thump!" by The Embers, "I Love You Dearly" by Jimmy Hurt & The Del-Rios, "Best Dressed Beggar In Town" by Houston Turner, "Out Of Gas" by Chuck Howard, "Jelnny Lou" by Cliff Nash, "Door To Door" by Chuck Wiley, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, and "Are You With Me" by Mel Robbins.

Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Deep, lost, or long-buried blues and gospel records from the old days – creaky 78s that creep deep into the soul – beautiful stuff from Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, the Anglin Brothers and more!
