Monday Michiru

Enso
Sonic Image, 2022. 2LP
LP...$48.99 49.99 ... About October 1, 2022 (delayed)
A set with maybe the most striking cover image that Monday Michiru's given us in years – and a record that really delivers on that promise, too – filled with really captivating tunes that represent a new high level in Monday's already-high career! There's a depth and maturity to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monica Zetterlund & Bill Evans

Waltz For Debby (SHMCD pressing)
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1964.
CD ... About October 19, 2022
One of the greatest albums ever cut by Swedish vocalist Monica Zetterlund – a landmark album that has her singing with the Bill Evans Trio! The album was recorded in 1964, with a spare sound that's quite different from most of Monica's other work. As usual, her vocals are wonderfully cool ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1958.
CD ... About October 19, 2022
One of the best albums ever recorded by Blossom, and a sweetly swinging batch of jazz vocal tracks with an incredibly fragile sound. Blossom's backed only by a small combo of guitar, bass, and drums – in addition to her own piano accompaniment – and her voice is right out front on ... CD
Candid (UK), 1961. (reissue)
LP...$23.99 26.98 ... On October 21, 2022
There's nothing Straight Ahead about this record – as the album's one of the first bold statements of modernism from Abbey Lincoln – and the kind of set that builds nicely from the vocal experiments she was doing with Max Roach at the time! The group here is almost one of those ... LP, Vinyl record album
Project 3/Bonfire (Italy), 1967. (reissue)
LP ... About October 25, 2022
The very first Free Design album, recorded in 1967 for Project 3 records – and darn tough to find in any format! The album is a swirling mix of vocal harmonies and cute little tuneful songs, sung by the group in a style that's sort of a mix between the Hi-Los and The Singers Unlimited – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie Driscoll

Julie Driscoll 1969
Polydor/Esoteric (UK), 1971.
CD...$16.99 22.99 ... About October 25, 2022
Julie Driscoll's come a long way from her years with Brian Auger here – stepping out in a freer sound that marks the shift in the British scene from beat group grooving to jazz-rock jamming. The session features a host of likely suspects – including Keith Tippett, Elton Dean, Brian ... CD

Ann Burton

Some Other Spring
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980.
CD...$19.99 24.99 ... About October 26, 2022
A date recorded in 1980, with an equally laidback feel as some of the earlier Ann Burton albums from the 70s! Burton's singing with only bass and piano for accompaniment – no drums at all, which makes for a very gentle, laidback sound – a perfect showcase for Ann's unique talents. ... CD
King/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD...$19.99 24.99 ... About October 26, 2022
Great work by one of the most under-rated jazz singers of the 70s – the great Ann Burton, performing here with only piano for accompaniment! Ann's working in a live setting for the set, gently swinging familiar tunes with an easy, open feel – supported only by the piano of Ken McCarthy ... CD

Ann Burton

He's Funny That Way
Lob/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977.
CD...$19.99 24.99 ... About October 26, 2022
A unique 45 rpm album, recorded in Japan during the 70s – and a set that features Burton at all her intimate best! Backing is by a trio that features Ken McCarthy on piano, and the sound is relatively clear, and quite subtle at points – really leaving Ann's vocals right out front, ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2022. (reissue)
LP...$34.99 39.99 (CD...$24.99)... About October 26, 2022
Really great work from Positive Force – a group who gave the world a rare groove classic back in the 80s, and who return here with fresh material that's every bit as great! The last time around, their lead singer was Denise Vallin – and here, the lovely Leslie Page steps up to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1971. 2LP (reissue)
LP...$39.99 (CD...$7.99)... About October 28, 2022
Our favorite-ever album from Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that we'd easily rank as one of our favorite soul records of the 70s! The mix of modes is mindblowing right from the start – as Gil's poetry comes into play with his growing talents as a singer, and his warm sensibility for jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cadet/Bear Family (Germany), 1968. (reissue)
LP...$33.99 34.99 ... On October 28, 2022
A really unique album from the great Etta Jones – a session recorded down in Muscle Shoals, and not in Chicago – a setting that gives James an extra sort of deep soul power! The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spanky Wilson

Let It Be
Mothers Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. (reissue)
LP...$38.99 44.99 ... About November 16, 2022
Spanky Wilson really takes off here – hitting some of her boldest soul modes to date – and serving up a few funk-heavy classics in the process! Production and arrangements are by HB Barnum – who draws on his own rich legacy of soul projects for the set, and finds a way to let ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spanky Wilson

Doin' It
Mother/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/1970. (reissue)
LP...$38.99 44.99 ... About November 16, 2022
A bit of soul, a bit of jazz, and some nice funky touches at the bottom – a killer little set from the great Spanky Wilson! Wilson's got a really unique place in music – at one level a soul singer with enough sophistication to rival the sound of Marlena Shaw or Nancy Wilson – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Samara Joy

Linger Awhile
Verve, 2022.
LP...$23.99 25.99 ... On November 18, 2022
Samara Joy is a rare jazz singer – the sort who manages to have ties to the past, but also really bring so much of her own spirit to the music – not subtle inflections on the tunes, but instead this really personal style that has her absorbing older tracks and turning them into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1972.
CD...$13.99 14.99 ... On November 18, 2022
Norma Deloris Egstrom is quite a different album altogether from her earlier years, but very memorable – as Peggy's working here in that wonderful later style she used at Capitol – a truly adult approach to pop that was less concerned with chart placement than it was with getting over a ... CD

Concentric/Omnivore, 1964. 2LP
LP ... On November 25, 2022
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Julie Tippetts

Sunset Glow
RCA/Esoteric (UK), 1975.
CD...$15.99 22.99 ... About November 25, 2022
Hippy trippy work from Julie Trippetts – who's come a long way here since her early sides with Brian Auger! The album shows the same evolution expressed by many of Julie's British jazz rock contemporaries – a progressive, expanded sound that's brought in influences from different 70s ... CD

Spanky Wilson

Spankin' Brand New
Mothers Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1969. (reissue)
LP...$36.99 39.99 ... About December 2, 2022
Heavy soul from the great Spanky Wilson – an album that explodes with energy right from the start – in a groove that definitely lives up to the title! Spanky's got a great mix of funk and class on this set – a punch in the rhythms at points, yet also a poise in the way she ... LP, Vinyl record album

Penny Goodwin

Penny Goodwin Live
P-Vine (Japan), 1974.
LP...$36.99 39.99 ... About December 2, 2022
A rare session from indie soul legend Penny Goodwin – a previously unissued live performance from 1974, featuring small combo backing in a sweet and jazzy mode! Penny's got a voice that's instantly recognizable – a bit raspy, in the mode of Esther Phillips – but cooler and more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy & Lee Again
RCA/Light In The Attic, 1972.

A rare second meeting between Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra – recorded for RCA a few years after their initial outing for Reprise, and done with a style that's even moodier than the first!
