Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s.
CD ... About March 20, 2019
A sweet and jazzy little session from Carmen – an overlooked batch of groovy tunes recorded with small combo backing! The sound's pretty soulful overall, and takes off nicely from Carmen's best moments on Atlantic a few years before – mixing in just a bit of electricity to keep things ... CD
Vantage/Venus (Japan), 1954.
CD ... About March 20, 2019
The first album ever from Pinky Winters – a beautiful little set that already has the singer reaching some great heights in her music! The feel of the record is quite similar to some of the vocal sessions on Bethlehem from the mid 50s – particularly the Chris Connors albums – and ... CD

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1970. (reissue)
LP ... About February 1, 2019 (delayed)
Wonderful wonderful – and very groovy! The Novi Singers were a hip little vocal jazz ensemble from Poland in the late 60s and early 70s – and they've got a cool sound that's very much in the style of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross, but with more of a swinging MPS groove! This album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Everything's Coming Up Rosy
EMI/Parlophone (Japan), 1963. (reissue)
LP ... About December 19, 2018 (delayed)
A British jazz swinger from vocalist Rosemary Squires – working here with some great small combo backing that really opens up the tunes! The instrumentation's as vivid as Rosemary's vocals – and really helps flesh things out, and keep things swinging – with nice performances by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. (reissue)
LP ... About December 19, 2018 (delayed)
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who only cut a few albums back in the 50s and 60s! The set's a strong one – and has Bev singing easily with the Johnny Smith group – nothing fancy, but quite nice, and with a warm and intimate feel that has ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wednesday's Child
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 50s. (reissue)
LP ... About November 21, 2018 (delayed)
One of the most obscure 50s vocal sessions on Atlantic Records – a sophisticated set of material set to beautifully shaded arrangements from Thomas Talbert! Patty McGovern's vocals are somewhat fragile and soft – but in a really nice way that mixes beautifully with Talbert's slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Embraceable You
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s.
CD ... About September 26, 2018 (delayed)
Great 70s live work from Sarah Vaughan – material that easily stands alongside her best for the Pablo label at the same time, but which is far more obscure overall! The notes on the CD aren't much – and obviously help enforce the obscurity of the sessions – but we can say that ... CD
Fontana (UK), Late 60s/1970s.
LP ... About February 22, 2019
... LP, Vinyl record album
Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1971.
CD ... About March 1, 2019
A beautiful set of hipster jazz vocals! This legendary album by Pittsburgh pianist Frank Cunimondo has always been a favorite for the jazz-dance groover "Feelin Good" – a cut which has an incredible drum and bass riff, and which has been sampled more than a few times over the past ... CD
CD ... On March 15, 2019
Key proof that great songs never get old – and maybe even more, that the political messages of yesterday still have plenty of power today! Drummer Ulysses Owens mines the righteous territory of the 60s and 70s here – bringing together songs originally performed by Nina Simone, Abbey ... CD
Atlantic, 1959. (reissue)
LP ... On March 22, 2019
Some of Ray's biggest tracks for Atlantic, including many remakes of standards like "Just For A Thrill", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin", "Am I Blue", and "It Had To Be You". You've heard it all a million times, but it's still beautiful stuff – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yes Indeed! (mono)
Atlantic, 1958. (reissue)
LP ... On March 22, 2019
Yes indeed – a mighty early classic from the great Ray Charles – one of his first full length albums, and a set that brings together the searing sort of work he was doing for Atlantic Records in the 50s! Ray's completely confident and at the top of his game here – and a lot more ... LP, Vinyl record album
What'd I Say (mono)
Atlantic, 1959. (reissue)
LP ... On March 22, 2019
A pivotal album for Ray – one that features the sweet electric piano jammer "What'd I Say" – offered up here in 2 parts, and a track that would become the prototype for so many funk songs in years to come! The Raelettes back Ray up on most tracks – and other tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1956. (reissue)
LP ... On March 22, 2019
One of the later Atlantic albums by Ray – and one that, like the others of this vintage, focuses on his instrumental side. Ray plays piano in a number of small groups, with players like David Fathead Newman, Emmott Dennis, Oscar Pettiford, John Hunt, and Joseph Bridgewater. The record ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1961. (reissue)
LP ... On March 22, 2019
Classic bluesy soul from Ray – featuring an assortment of original tunes, plus a few standards, done in a mode that's got more of the jazzy touches associated with his late 50s "genius" years. Titles include "Feelin Sad", "Ray's Blues", "The Midnight ... LP, Vinyl record album
Suite London
Philips/Glam O Rama (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About March 29, 2019
The rare final album by UK jazzy soul pop maestros The Peddlers – recorded in the early 70s with the London Philharmonic – and one of the ripest albums of the era for a modern rediscovery in the groove community! The album has a much easier overall vibe than you might think given the ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC/Concord, 1962.
LP ... About April 1, 2019
Brilliant work throughout – both of Ray Charles' classic country albums in a single package! Volume one is the stuff of legends – and what seemed a silly idea at the time was true proof of Ray's genius – the most successful album of his career and a bona-fide number one hit that ... LP, Vinyl record album
