Kimiko Kasai with Kosuke Mine

Yellow Carcass In The Blue
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About November 13, 2019
A record that's far more beautiful than you'd guess from the "carcass" in the title – a strong set of vocal work from singer Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the hippest Japanese singers of the 70s! Although Kasai's sometimes straight on the album, she also stretches out in freer ... CD

Folkways, 1958.
CD ... About November 20, 2019
Kenneth Patchen, like Kenneth Rexroth, was one of the few poets who really understood what it meant to read and write in a jazz idiom – as you'll hear on this excellent set of beatnik jazz tracks! The album features Patchen reading in a great style – angular, cynical, really working ... CD

Mari Nakamoto

Unforgettable
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1973.
CD ... About October 9, 2019 (delayed)
Torchy vocals from singer Mari Nakamoto – sung in English, and graced with some really lovely arrangements! The tunes are mostly standards, and Mari's presentation is traditionally torchy – but the backings have a lightly swinging quality that features some of the great touches the ... CD

Koji Moriyama

Smile
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About October 9, 2019 (delayed)
Great vocals from Japanese singer Koji Moriyama – an artist with a really unique approach to his music – quite unlike any other American jazz vocalists we can think of! Koji's got a style that's slightly raspy at points – not off key, but very personal – and sung in this ... CD

Dwight Druik

Tanger
Bobinason/Favorite (France), 1980.
LP ... About September 30, 2019 (delayed)
Cool Canadian vocals from Dwight Druick – a singer who works in French with a very soulful sound overall! The album's partly got the feel of some of the best compressed crossover work of the US scene of the mid 70s – but it's also got a jazzier feel overall too, one that brings a ...

Langston Hughes

Voice Of Langston Hughes
Folkways, 1950s.
CD ... About November 1, 2019
A wonderful collection of work from Langston Hughes – material pulled from a handful of albums recorded for the Folkway labels in the 50s, all of which are pretty darn great and long out of print! Hughes' writings are well known – part of a rich tradition of African-American expression ... CD
Riverside, 1958. (reissue)
LP ... On November 29, 2019
A classic album from Chet – and one that's got a perfect mix of vocal and instrumental moments, of the sort you don't find easily on other albums! Chet plays trumpet and sings, and is backed by Kenny Drew, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones – a different style of group from his west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album

Liston/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. (reissue)
LP ... About December 1, 2019
A great set of mellow soul from the start of the 80s – not the Positive Force of "We Got The Funk" fame, but a different groove that has a nicely smooth groove! The style here is halfway between soul and AOR, but handled with an indie charm that really keeps things compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erik Tagg

Rendezvous
Poker/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. (reissue)
LP ... About December 4, 2019
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! There's a style here that's a bit singer/songwriter, but somewhat deeper too – one that has a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta James

Queen Of Soul
Argo/Elemental (Spain), Early 60s. (reissue)
LP ... On December 6, 2019
Queen of Soul is right! Heck, on these early albums, Etta practically invented soul – or at least invented a deep soul style of singing that would be taken up by countless other female singers during the 60s, but rarely matched with this kind of brilliance. Straight up beatiful stuff! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bear Family (Germany), Late 30s/1940s/1950s.
LP ... About October 5, 2019 (delayed)
The ghost of Christmas past comes back to haunt us – but in the grooviest way possible, thanks to a fab selection of old school Holiday tunes from the folks at Bear Family! The music here is mostly from the 40s and 50s – and is mostly vocal overall, sung by artists who move through ... LP, Vinyl record album
