Singing The Blues

LP (Item 760154) Decca, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Features the lovely Boswell sister, solo – with broups led by Sy Oliver, Artie Shaw, Bob Haggart, Paul Neilsen, and Jack Pleis!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Offical label reissue pressing – Denmark, from the 80s.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Very groovy 70s work from Annie Ross – an album that's quite different than her vocalese records of the 50s, but equally great in its own sort of way! Ross is still singing jazz here, but there's often a bit of soul in the mix too – that hip blend of styles that you might find in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wonderful early work from Carmen McRae – a set of tunes originally composed by Noel Coward, served up by Carmen with a very hip 50s feel! The orchestrations here are by Jack Pleis, who really gets the mood right for the set – and shakes off some of the floweriness that could sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Jefferson

There I Go Again
Prestige, Early 50s/1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A really great overview of the career of Eddie Jefferson – one that begins with his first few vocal singles of the 50s, and follows him through album work for Riverside and Prestige in the 60s! Jefferson's contribution to jazz is tremendous – as he was one of the first to set lyrics to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Leon Thomas takes his vocals to new heights – moving past the straight spiritual jazz modes of his work with Pharoah Sanders, to embrace a whole host of new styles too! There's a slight trace of the blues promised in the title, but always inflected through a more soulful approach overall ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta Jones

So Warm
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+
Etta Jones is definitely nice and warm here – working with some great backings from Oliver Nelson, who mixes in a bit of strings with the usual jazzy punch he was delivering at the time! Jones' vocals are at the height of her early powers here – working with poise, class, and a heck of ... LP, Vinyl record album

In our opinion, this "comeback" material by Rushing was way better than his original work from the late 30s. He's got more of a sense of control here, and his approach to the material is extremely thoughtful, and always tinged with a good sense of jazz, making it swing a bit more than on ...

Argo, 1964. Very Good+
One of the few rare albums from Jean DuShon – a very cool 60s jazz singer, working here with hip small combo backings from the Herman Foster Trio! You might know Herman from his work with Lou Donaldson, and his group here really bring a lot to the set – on titles that include "Don' ... LP, Vinyl record album
