Okeh/Music On Vinyl (UK), 2017.
LP ... About December 8, 2017
A beautiful turn in direction from the legendary jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater – a return to some of the soul-based modes she used in the 70s, but served up here as a tribute to Memphis soul of an earlier generation! The set was recorded in that fine southern city, at the Royal Studios ... LP, Vinyl record album
Storyville/Craftman (Japan), 1956. (reissue)
LP ... About December 20, 2017
Beautifully moody work from singer Milli Vernon – a rare Storyville session from the mid 50s, cut with a relaxed, late nite feel – and backing from a small combo that includes Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Raney on guitar, and Dave McKenna on piano! The sound is very much in keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album
Victor/Beatball (Korea), 1981.
CD ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
A classic groover from Yasuko Agawa – proof that the Japanese scene had an ear for soul in the years before Monday Michiru! The early 80s set is made up from equal parts jazz, soul, and Brazilian influences – all used nicely with tight, fusiony production that really works nicely with ... CD
Victor/Beatball (Korea), 1979.
CD ... On November 15, 2017 (delayed)
Yasuko's on the menu, and she's as sweet as can be on this late 70s set – an album that's even more soul-based than some of her previous efforts! The grooves are nicely upbeat here – hitting a style that's certainly club, but which also has a bit of a funky fusion too – thanks to ... CD
Victor/Beatball (Korea), 1978.
CD ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
Hauntingly beautiful work from Yasuko Agawa – a set that has some echoes of older jazz and bossa at points, but also slides out in a smooth 70s soul mode too! As on her previous album, arrangements here are all by Susumu Arima – who also produced – and he's quite a maestro when ... CD
Victor/Beatball (Korea), 1977.
CD ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
A wonderful early album from this hip Japanese singer – done in a mix of jazz and soul that reminds us a lot of Marlena Shaw! The overall style here is perhaps a bit more on the jazz side of the spectrum, but the arrangements and production are definitely influenced by American R&B of ... CD
Kaleidoscope Sound/Beatball (Korea), 1971.
CD ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
The upper left hand corner of the sky is a very groovy place – thanks to warm vocals and a sunny groove from the Jimmy Vann Band! The group's a trio, of the hotel/cocktail variety – but they've also got plenty of Sunshine Pop touches too – a mixture of male and female vocals, and ... CD
Something Cool
Pulsar/Beatball (Korea), Late 60s.
CD ... About November 15, 2017 (delayed)
An incredibly groovy record from The Voices In Latin – a one-off studio project headed up by sound library legend Barbara Moore! The set is one of the few commercially-released albums that Moore ever did – and as you might guess from the group's name, the record's got a style that ... CD
Time In My Life
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971.
CD ... About December 6, 2017
Sarah Vaughn's looking pretty groovy on the cover of this album, and she's sounding pretty groovy too – thanks to some sweet 70s backings from Ernie Wilkins! The style isn't exactly funky, but it's got some fully soulful sounds, and some great electric moments too – modes that almost ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s.
CD ... About December 6, 2017
Great trio backing – from a group with Norman Simmons on piano, Victor Sproles on bass, and Stu Martin on drums! CD

Dot, 1967. (reissue)
LP ... On November 24, 2017
Holy cow! Although some of Leonard Nimoy's albums were attempts to "get past" his Spock career, this one is a full-on Star Trek experience! Nimoy's on the cover, holding a replica of The Enterprise in front of some weird spider web design. On the wax, he's laying down great space stuff ... LP, Vinyl record album
Light In The Attic, 1967. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 24, 2017
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
Round & Round
Columbia (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About November 29, 2017
A rare set from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – one recorded in America, but only issued in Japan – and featuring a set of tunes with English language lyrics, all done in a great mix of jazz, disco, and R&B! Herbie Hancock makes a great guest appearance on the set's funky remake ... CD
We Can Fall In Love
CBS (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About November 29, 2017
Soulful grooves from this great Japanese jazz singer – with arrangements by Richard Evans, and tracks that include "Being In Love", "Along The Nile", "We Can Fall In Love", "In Common", and "Love Don't Love Nobody". CD
Free In America
Arista (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About November 29, 2017
A bit smoother than Ben's earlier albums – but a great little set all the way through – and about as classic as you can get for Sidran in the 70s! The album's got a bit more soul in the mix, but still has some jazzy elements in the backings – and where things were sometimes ... CD
Nat King Cole & Me
Blue Note (UK), 2017.
LP ... About December 1, 2017
The great Gregory Porter in a very different setting than usual – working here with larger backings from an entire orchestra, as part of the album's tribute to Nat King Cole during his glory days at Capitol Records! The style here isn't the King Cole Trio vibe of the mid 40s, but instead ... LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, Mid 50s.
CD ... On December 8, 2017
A great 50s album from Bing – one in which he reworks older songs with groovy backings from the trio of Buddy Cole! Much more jazzy than before – and with a great cover too! CD
