Bethlehem/BMG, 1957. (reissue)
LP...$26.99 27.99 ... On August 13, 2021
A classic set of early jazz recordings by Nina Simone – one of her first albums ever, but already with an approach that's quite different from other singers of the time! Nina's singing a fair bit of standards here, but she brings a deeply personal approach to the material – inflecting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise/Light In The Attic, 1966. (reissue)
LP...$23.99 27.98 ... On September 17, 2021
Nice reissue of Nancy's classic Reprise LP, with lots of stellar Lee Hazlewood writing and production, and cuts like "I Move Around", "So Long, Babe", "Flowers On The Wall", and the title cut. The CD also includes a whole bunch of bonus cuts, all by Hazlewood, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bethlehem/180g, Early 60s. (reissue)
LP...$34.99 ... On September 24, 2021
We're not sure if Bethlehem pulled this nice little collection of its all star cast of female vocalists together as a loss leader, or kind of after the fact to re-capitalize on some of their recordings, but you can't argue with the stellar lineup, featuring a dozen tracks by some of the finest ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Ella & Louis Again (180 gram pressing)
Verve, Late 50s. 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On October 22, 2021
A set that's maybe even nicer than the Ella & Louis work together on Porgy & Bess – given that backing is by the trio of Oscar Peterson, which gives the whole thing a nicely understated charm – at a level that really lets the charms of the duo shine through! LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Ella & Louis (180 gram pressing)
Verve, Late 50s. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On October 22, 2021
Classic duets between Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – done in a sweet mode that only could have been handled by Verve in the 50s! Backings are in a nice small combo mode – with Armstrong on both trumpet and vocals – and Ella and Louis carry most of the set with their great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeanne Lee

Conspiracy
Earthforms/Moved By Sound, 1975. (reissue)
LP ... About July 25, 2021 (delayed)
A rather obscure side from Jeanne Lee, and a wonderful one. Lee leads the group through a set of originals and improvisations, with a great searching quality that manifests itself in so little vocal jazz recordings, with an excellent vibe that has a lot in common with some of the material that ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1969.
LP ... On July 9, 2021 (delayed)
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Terri Rae

It's Raining
Audio Fidelity/Pleasure For Music, 1968. (reissue)
LP ... About June 1, 2021 (delayed)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1960. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On October 22, 2021
A wonderful Holiday album that's stayed fresh for years! Ella's got a perfect style to interpret these numbers – working with Frank DeVol and Russ Garcia in a set of lightly jazzy versions of Christmas favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "Jingle Bells", "Winter ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On December 10, 2021
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2021.
LP ... About May 27, 2021 (delayed)
Anthony Joseph has been one of the most righteous talents to emerge in recent years – and each new record just seems to go deeper and deeper – with a sense of righteous energy that you can probably guess here from the title! We dare say that this set may be Joseph's best recording ever ... LP, Vinyl record album
