LP ... About May 15, 2020
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all time – and one of the first true moments of genius from a young Dee Dee Bridgewater!

Alexandria The Great
Impulse (Japan), 1964.
CD ... About May 20, 2020
A beautiful album from Lorez Alexanderia – one of her two excellent sessions for Impulse! The record was cut after Lorez recorded some great sides for the Argo label – and it works off the strength of those sides, taking her unique vocal approach, forged in R&B, but smoothed by ... CD

A rare gem by singer Jackie Paris – an underrecorded LA singer from the 50s and 60s, with a sound and style that's somewhere between early Mark Murphy and later Bobby Troup! Paris has less of the vocalese approach of some of his contemporaries – and is also lacking the heavy vocal ... CD

LP ... On June 20, 2020
Groovy late 60s pop from Samantha Jones – a British singer who's working here with some great arrangements and productions from UK maestro Mark Wirtz!

One of the excellent 70s albums cut by Japanese vocalist Ayako Hosokawa – sung in English, with an easy going jazz style that we really love! The record kicks off with a great version of Ralph MacDonald's "No Tears" – done with a loping funky groove that has some nice conga ... CD

Warmly crafted vocal work from Erik Tagg – a Dutch singer who'd relocated to Texas by the time of this mid 70s set – singing here in English with some nicely jazzy backings on the set!
