LP, Vinyl record album

(€10.16 || £9.08 || ¥1352) (approx.)

A beautiful album by one of our favorite jazz singers! Lorez Alexandria is in a perfect setting here – singing with subtly sophisticated backings that really let her take charge, and direct the songs tightly with her incredibly soulful vocals! Instrumentation is mostly in a small combo mode – with the Wynton Kelly trio at the core, augmented by a bit of guitar from Ray Crawford, and some alto sax from Paul Horn – and although the album's got an easygoing feel, it also keenly shows the tightness that's always made Lorez so great! Styles are a blend of soul and jazz, plus just a hint of bossa, heard beautifully on the album's rendition of "O Barquinho". Other tracks include "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Once", "Angel Eyes", "No More", and "That Far Away Look". (Green label pressing. Cover has light wear, a cut corner, and some marker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Early in the Morning
Argo, 1960. Very Good+
An excellent early album by one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time! The session's a very hip affair – recorded with the Ramsey Lewis Trio backing her up on one side, and a group led by Frank Foster on another – both playing in a tight soul jazz mode that works perfectly for ...

How Will I Remember You?
Discovery, 1977. Very Good+
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feelin' Good
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
Fantastic work from singer Pat Bowie – and a session that also features some key solos from Charles McPherson as well! McPherson's alto isn't always heard on albums with vocals, but it does a great job here with Pat – sliding in nicely at just the right point, and giving the tunes a ... LP, Vinyl record album
This Is Sinatra!
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
This Is Sinatra indeed – a wonderful collection of singles, and a near-lost album to the shifting sands of time! The record wasn't one of Frank's "album concepts" for Capitol, and has since been dismantled in the catalog – but for many in the 50s, this was one of THE Sinatra ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wait For Me
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Stroud, 1973. Very Good+
Killer work from Nina Simone's excellent Stroud Productions run – a set that wasn't issued by RCA in the early 70s, but which really matches the fire of her classics for the label! The setting's a live one, as you'd guess from the title – and most tunes are longish, with those key ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dinah Sings Bessie Smith
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Backings by Eddie Chamblee, on a host of Bessie Smith classics – updated with more of a 50s R&B vibe. LP, Vinyl record album
Live In Paris
Impulse, 1986. Very Good
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's greatest jazz albums, and a very important record in her career – as it marked a shift back to straight jazz vocals, after years of working in a more R&B inflected mode. The album's recorded in Paris, where Dee Dee's spent an awful lot of time over the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Pulse
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Femme Fatale
Crown, Mid 50s. Good+
The lovely and soulful Hadda Brooks was one of the great talents on the LA scene of the postwar years – a vocalist and pianist with a style that blended blues and jazz, in a manner that was like some of her male counterparts on the scene at the time, such as Nat King Cole or Charles Brown. ...

Round & Round
Columbia (Japan), 1978. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Full Circle
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
The last album in Leon Thomas' classic run of albums for the Flying Dutchman label – and one of the most unique as well! There's a tighter feel here than some of Thomas' more free-flowing spiritual jazz sessions – but the sound is hardly commercial at all, either – and still has ... LP, Vinyl record album
