Impulse, 1963. Very Good Gatefold ... $149.99
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ...

Noel CowardNoel Coward At Las Vegas ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of our favorite vocal albums of the 50s – an incredibly witty live set from Noel Coward, recorded in Las Vegas, with a very different style than some of his other records!

A set of Broadway tunes – but with a difference – and that difference is the mighty Sammy Davis Jr!

Trend, 1953. Good+ ... $9.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by Matt Dennis – a cool-voice vocalist who was equally known as a songwriter!

A pretty darn compelling late album from Dietrich – for a number of reasons! One might be the cover, which features her in a stunning white tuxedo and top hat.
