❔

Haunting stuff – and one of June Christy's darkest albums! June's singing here with her old boss, Stan Kenton, at the piano – no other real backing, just the pair of them working together in a session that's uniquely stripped down for the time. June's vocals are frail and tender – with even more sadness than in some of her more fully arranged sessions, all of which we love to death. Titles include "Come To The Party", "Angel Eyes", "Lonely Woman", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "We Kiss In A Shadow", and "You're Mine You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono turquoise label pressing. Cover has light wear, a name in pen, and a BONUS cutout.)

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.

Capitol, 1961. Very Good
One of Peggy Lee's jazziest albums, thanks to some pretty darn smart arrangements by a young Quincy Jones! Quincy takes Peggy's great vocal style and gives it a nice extra umph, in the way that he did on similar vocal sessions from the same time (like Sinatra's famous "Fly Me to the Moon" ...

Voices In Modern
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman – an album with a title that perfectly sums up the Four Freshman contribution to 50s jazz, and their sublime way of re-casting vocals in their work!

Warm & Wonderful
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
A nicely mellow album from this female harmony group – almost the gals answer to the sound of the Four Freshmen on Capitol! The set is laidback, with some larger backings by Alvino Ray that have a great round tone that fleshes out the sound nicely. LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
A surprising return to jazz by Dinah Shore – recorded with backings by the Red Norvo Quintet, and a swinging style that makes us like her more than we'd think! Titles include "Who", "It's Funny To Everyone", "Bye Bye Blues", "Lover Come Back To Me", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

To Whom It May Concern
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
A great late album from Nat King Cole – one done with some wonderfully rich arrangements by Nelson Riddle, which unlock all the poise and class that Cole had developed during his 50s decade at Capitol Records!

Love Is The Thing

Now! Hear!
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Fantastic work from Andy Bey and the Bey Sisters – a superb trio with a really soulful touch – one who had the depth of a gospel group, but the freewheeling range of the best jazz singers of their generation! Andy provides fantastic piano, and very deep vocals alongside Geraldine and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hi-Lo's

Now Hear This
Columbia, 1957. Very Good
Excellent vocal group material from The Hi-Los – one of the best male vocal quartets ever! The foursome have an amazing talent with a jazz riff – and their style of handling a tune was only ever matched by the Four Freshmen for sheer inventiveness and vocal imagination. The album's ...
