✨✧ Billy EckstineSenior Soul ... LP
Enterprise, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A well-titled set not only given Billy's age, but also because of the surprisingly soulful undercurrent to the record – an extension into the genre even greater than Eckstine's previous recordings for Motown – and proof that he was really trying to stretch out towards new audiences at the time! Artie Butler handled the backings, and he uses a groove that's pretty full, but never overwhelming – more ebullient soul than some of Eckstine's more familiar jazz – with backing vocals and bright horns, yet still plenty of space for Billy to do his thing. The best numbers have Eckstine coming across with the 70s cool of Grady Tate on his vocal sides – and titles include "Thank You For The Moment", "A Song For You", "A Man Who Sings", "Today Was Tomorrow Yesterday", "I Believe In Music", and "Living Like A Gypsy".

✨✧ Sarah Vaughan & Billy EckstineIrving Berlin Songbook (80s pressing) ... LP
EmArcy/Polygram, 1957. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great album that pairs these two great singers together for some of Berlin's popular tunes. They're accompanied by a full orchestra and the singers compliment each other nicely especially where Vaughan can match Eckstine's low tones. The tracks include "Isn't This A Lovely Day", "All Of My Life", "Cheek To Cheek", "Remember", "Easter Parade", "The Girl That I Marry", and "Now It Can Be Told". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Dutch pressing.)

✨✧ Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... $5.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love". CD

Luba RaushiekLuba – Chi Jazz ... LP
Erect, 1981. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An obscure bit of Chicago jazz – featuring vocalist Luba Raushiek, kind of a self-styled spiritualist, with an approach that hits both traditional modes, and more far-out soulful ones – running through styles that range from Leon Thomas to Billy Eckstine, as was typical for a small club vocalist like this. The record's not great – but it's a valuable bit of Chicago jazz, as Raushiek did sing in quite a few of the city's clubs in the 70s and 80s, and he's helped here by players like John Young, Ari Brown, and Von Freeman. Titles include "Impressions", "Well You Needn't", "Enterprise", and "Love Makes The World Go Round". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Sarah VaughanSwingin' Easy (Jazz Heritage pressing – with bonus track) ... CD
EmArcy/Jazz Heritage, 1954/1957. Used ... $3.99
Very nice jazz-oriented material that has Sarah working with Jimmy Jones, one of her best accompanists, or John Malachi, who was in Billy Eckstine's band at the same time Sarah was with the group. All the tracks have nice small combo instrumentation – and Sarah keeps things nice and warm vocally, free to get a bit more intimate than usual in the album's casual setting. Titles include "All Of Me", "Lover Man", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "You Hit The Spot". CD includes the non-LP bonus track "Linger Awhile". CD
(Jazz Heritage pressing with full color artwork.)

✨✧ Stan HasselgardCalifornia Session ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), Late 40s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Stan Hasselgard – a cool jazz clarinet player who was coming up on the Swedish scene at the same time that Jimmy Giuffre was on the rise in the US – and a musician who made a trip over to Los Angeles in the late 40s, where he cut the really fantastic work that's presented in this package! Hasselgard's got a sharp edge that's equally great in bop and swing – and here, he not only works alongside a few great singers – like Billy Eckstine and Johnny White – but also gets help from some great musicians who include Red Norvo on vibes, Dodo Marmarosa and Jimmy Rowles on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Wardell Gray on tenor! We've caught a few of Stan's Capitol Records sides over the years, but this great package is the first to really present his LA material in all its glory – 24 titles that include "Blues For Billy", "Swedish Pastry", "Jam Session At Jubilee", "Who Sleeps", "Sweet & Hot Mop", "Gotta Have More Money", "Flying Foam", "I Never Loved Anyone", "Who's Sorry Now", and "Hortense".

✨✧ VariousR&B In DC 1940 to 1960 – Rhythm & Blues, Doo Wop, Rockin Rhythm, & More (16CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1940s/1950s. New Copy 16CD ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at a music scene that's been overlooked for years – the rich legacy of soul, jazz, blues, and R&B music that came from Washington, DC at midcentury – a city that's not nearly as well-known a source for sounds as Chicago, Detroit, and New York – but which gave the world an incredible legacy of wonderful records over the years! As now, back then DC had a substantial African-American population – and as with other urban black centers of music production, the city had clubs, labels, and radio stations that were able to promote and record some of the new styles that were brewing up at the time – music by a surprisingly rich legacy of talents that includes big names like Lloyd Price, The Clovers, Don Covay, and Billy Eckstine – plus dozens of much more obscure artists, all featured here in a massive 16 CD set! The package is as much a musical archive as it is a listening paradise – and comes with a 352 hardcover booklet that's overflowing with notes, rare photos, and other musical images of the city – all to support an insane amount of music – 472 tracks in all! CD
(Limited, numbered edition of 1500 copies.)
