✨✧ Chet BakerBaby Breeze ... CD
Verve, 1964. Used ... $4.99
It's the mid 60s, and although Chet's lost the classic sound of his early recordings, he does a pretty nice job in this small group session that has him playing fluegelhorn in place of a recently-stolen trumpet. The sound is nice and compressed, with a tightly restrained feel that works well with ... (Jazz, Vocalists) read more CD

Muse, 1992. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful later set from Lorez Alexandria – produced by Houston Person, and put together with a sensitivity that really stands out! Although Lorez always sparkles on tunes that swing, she really rises to the occasion even more here on the ballads – really gentle tunes that are taken ... read more CD

✨✧ Betty CarterRound Midnight (Roulette) ... LP
Roulette, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Excellent work from Betty Carter – much more sophisticated than some of her 60s work! Betty's captured here in her hip trio format that she developed to fantastic heights during the 70s. Betty sings standards and originals with a warmth an imagination that we can hardly describe accurately ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, Mid 40s/Mid 50s/1975. Near Mint- 2LP ... $4.99
A great collection of Jordan's material from the mid 40s to the mid 50s – starting with his jazzy numbers of the earlier years, and moving into the more blues/rock 'n roll sound of later recordings. His band always sounds great and it also sounds like they're having a good time especially ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Esther PhillipsBlack-Eyed Blues ... LP
Kudu, 1973. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of Esther's strong winners for Kudu – a record that takes her soulful style of earlier years, and wraps it around some sly 70s funky arrangements! Ex-James Brown hornman Pee Wee Ellis arranged the album, and gave Esther a nice little dose of funk that really helped her groove – ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1994. Used ... $7.99
A later tribute to Clifford Brown from Helen Merrill – the vocalist who worked famously with the late trumpeter in the 50s! The feel here is quite different than the Merrill/Brown pairings for Emarcy, but equally dark throughout – handled in a way that often has Merrill's vocals offset ... read more CD

Roulette (Japan), 1958. Used ... $16.99
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time!

High Note, 2002. Used ... $4.99
Great new work from Mark Murphy – a real no-nonsense, back-to-basics session that really recalls the greatness of some of his 70s classics. The set's got small combo backing, and Mark's doing a fair bit of traditional jazz standards – but the feel of the album is wonderful, gently ... read more CD

That's quite an unusual cover for a jazz vocal album – but then again, Cecile McLorin Salvant is quite an unusual singer – and one who may well be out to change the future of her genre with records like this! The songs are this fantastic blend of original compositions, jazz standards, ... read more CD

A really rich album by Sarah Vaughan – recorded in Paris in 1958, with orchestrations by Quincy Jones – and large group backing that includes some great tenor work by Zoot Sims! The session's one of Vaughan's most cohesive albums of the period, and although it's got "violins" ... read more CD
