Lee WileyNight In Manhattan With Lee Wiley ... CD
Columbia, 1950. Used ... $4.99
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

Lee WileyTouch Of The Blues ... LP
RCA, 1958. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Dark and sophisticated vocals from Lee Wiley – cut with a slightly more traditional feel than some of her other albums from the time, partly because the backings are handled by Billy Butterfield! Yet despite a slightly traddish bent, there's also a slightly modern feel too – a nice melding of modes that's very much in the best 50s RCA spirit – fresh and sultry enough to live up to the streetwise image on the cover. Arrangements are by Al Cohn and Bill Finegan, and titles include "Blues In My Heart", "The Memphis Blues", "From The Land Of Sky Blue Water", "A Hundred Years From Today", "Make Believe", "A Touch Of The Blues", and "I Don't Want To Walk Without You".

Lee Wiley & Ellis LarkinsDuologue ... CD
Black Lion, 1954. Used ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Lee WileyLee Wiley Sings Rodgers & Hart (10 inch LP) ... LP
Storyville, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
A warmly crafted vocal session from Lee Wiley – very spare, with a no-nonsense approach that makes the record one of her best of the 50s. The backing group's a quartet led by pianist Jimmy Jones, and it also includes Ruby Braff on trumpet, who gives the tracks a moody sound that works very well with Lee's vocals. The tunes are all Rodgers & Hart compositions – and titles include "Give It Back To The Indians", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "You Took Advantage Of Me", and "My Funny Valentine". LP, Vinyl record album
(A beautiful original copy!)

✨✧ Lee WileyWest Of The Moon ... LP
RCA, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousRockin South ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The south might have rocked in plenty of big scenes during the late 50s – Memphis, Houston, and some other big cities for music – but the work here might well beat them all, as it came from the smaller NRC group of labels, way down in Atlanta, Georgia! The music has plenty of fire and twang right from the start – not just hillbilly moving into rockabilly, but some full-formed early rockers that seem to take off from the best raw, raspy modes of the Louisiana and Tennessee studios of the time – but with maybe even a more striking sense of freedom overall! The CD's filled with gems we'd never have heard otherwise – all given the usual stunning Ace Records presentation – great sound and the kind of notes that always beat the bootlegs on the market. 30 tracks in all – including "The Cat" by Rod Willis, "Baby Please Don't Leave" by Sweetie Jones, "The Coo" by Wayne Cochran, "The Little Moon Men" by Lee George, "Strollin' After Dark" by the Shades, "I Got A Girl" by Tommy Roe & The Satins, "I Love You So Much" by Chuck Wiley, "Wolf" by The Four Mints, "Black Knee Socks" by Clyde Beavers, "I'm Happy" by Robert Gill & The Gill-O-Teens, and "I'm Snowed" by Joe South.

✨✧ Barbara LeaBarbara Lea ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956/1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 features 2 bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Charles MingusJazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus ... CD
Bethlehem/Rhino, 1954. Used ... 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!
