Tru Thoughts (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A British singer with a wonderfully fluid feel – a voice that slides right into a tune, wraps around the keyboards and other instrumentation, and picks up this special sort of glow along the way!

Impulse, 1963. Used ... $4.99
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer!

A lovely little tribute to the genius of Joao Gilberto – and quite possibly the best album we've ever heard from vocalist Ithamara Koorax!

Argo/Elemental (Spain), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Queen of Soul is right!

Capitol, Early 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Chakiris made his big fame in the film version of West Side Story, but we've always been bigger fans of his work in Les Demoiselles De Rochefort.

Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet bit of funky jazz vocals from Oscar Brown Jr – recorded during his early 70s stay at Atlantic Records, in a style that's very different than his early work!
