Carmen McRaeI'm Coming Home Again ... CD
JAS/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $28.99
A great smooth soul session from Carmen McRae – an album that's not nearly as well known as her American sides of the 70s, but which is possibly even better overall! The record features a great batch of smooth soul arrangements by Mario Sprouse – a blend of jazz and contemporary soul modes that's almost in the same space as Marlena Shaw – and the band backing up Carmen is filled with superstar players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Grover Washington on sax. The whole thing's got that well-crafted feel you'd expect from a Japanese session at the time – and it includes many nice moments, like a cover of "Mister Magic" with some nice breaks – plus "New York State Of Mind", "Sweet Alibis", "Come In From The Rain", "The Masquerade Is Over", and "I'd Rather Leave While I'm In Love". 2CD version – featuring the entire album!

(Part of the "Versatile: Find Out Fusion" series!)

Carmen McRaeMad About The Man ... LP
Decca, 1958. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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 be associated with the tunes – all to clear the way nicely for Carmen's beautifully-poised early vocals. Ray Bryant plays piano on most numbers, and titles include "I'll See You Again", "Never Again", "World Weary", "Mad About The Boy", "Poor Little Rich Girl", and "A Room With A View". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

Carmen McRae/Julie London/Chris ConnorBethlehem's Girl Friends ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
A split album that features 4 tracks by Carmen McRae with the Mat Mathews quartet, plus 4 more obscure numbers by Julie London, recording with the quartet of Tony Scott. The McRae material is some of her best jazz work from the time – cut in that perfect small group vocal mode that was one of Bethlehem's strongest points in the 50s. Titles on those tunes include "Easy To Love", "I'm Lucky", "Last Time For Love", "Misery", and "Too Much In Love To Care". The Julie London material features backing by Scott on clarinet and Dick Katz on piano, which makes for a very different sound than some of her work for Liberty during the same time. Tunes include "A Foggy Day", "Don't Worry 'Bout Me", and "You're Blase". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging, some notes in pen on back, and a few minor stains.)

Ralph J GleasonMusic In The Air (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
Ralph J Gleason might just be one of the coolest cats to ever write about music – a key part of the San Francisco scene during the postwar years – where his talents helped illuminate both the worlds of art and music during the beat generation – then really helped shine a spotlight on all the cultural changes in the city during the 60s – which even led to Gleason's role in the founding of Rolling Stone magazine! Gleason always had a great eye (and ear) for things that were new and special, but never in a way that was slavish to the moment – or to its creator – and the book features an initial section on his writings on jazz and blues – with essays on John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, BB King, John Handy, Vince Guaraldi & Bola Sete, Cal Tjader, Ben Webster, the San Francisco Jazz scene, and other diverse topics. The second section features Gleason on folk and rock – with bits on Jefferson Airplane, Hank Williams, Lenny Bruce, Odetta, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and others – and the final section features articles on politics and culture – covering topics that include Richard Nixon, radio payola, Law & Order, flower children, and other slices of society, seen from the Gleason viewpoint. Book is hardcover, and 309 pages. Book

✨✧ Jo GrinageOde To Kim ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1976. Near Mint- ... $28.99
A very cool set – a mix of jazz vocals, righteous ideas, and some nicely complex instrumentation – a bit like the hippest territory that Carmen McRae was hitting at the start of the 70s! The great Nadi Qamar directs the group, and handles the arrangements – and players include a young Hilton Ruiz on piano, the great Roland Alexander on tenor and flute, Ahmed Abdul Malik on bass, and Maxine Roach on viola. Titles include "Mother How I Miss Youi", "Rain", "Ode To Kim", "Woman", and "Eleanor Rigby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Dakeeta pressing. Cover has some light wear, but vinyl is great.)

Various76 In The Shade – Presented By Bob Stanley ... CD
Ace (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A really cool collection, and one that's got a very special focus – an imaginary soundtrack for the record-breaking British summer of 1976 – a searingly hot time that really pushed the nation to the brink! Bob Stanley's given us some great collections on Ace Records before – often with Pete Wiggs, or as Saint Etienne – and this set continues the very special vibe of those sets, by bringing together cuts that we never would have thought would work so well otherwise – a sublime mix of soul, rock, and pop – all glowing together with the warm vibe of the summer of 1976! Titles include "I'm Mandy Fly Me" by 10CC, "Walking So Free" by Spike Janson, "Sugar Shuffle" by Lynsey DePaul, "Liquid Sunshine" by John Cameron, "Not On The Outside" by Sylvia, "You Are My Love" by Liverpool Express, "You're The Song" by Hollywood Freeway, "Discover Me" by David Ruffin, "Stoned Out" by Simon Park, "Montreal City" by Azimuth, "Stay With Me" by Blue Mink, "Music" by Carmen McRae, "Rock N Roll Star" by Barclay James Harvest, "Fallin In Love" by Hamilton Joe Frank & Reynolds, "Inspiration Information" by Shuggie Otis, and "Miss My Love Today" by Gilbert O'Sullivan.

✨✧ Andre Previn & Gerry MulliganSubterraneans ... LP
MGM, 1959. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Dave Bailey, Russ Freeman, Art Farmer, Art Pepper, and Jack Sheldon! There's loads of numbers that have a dark, moody finish – mixing together jazz soloing and strings, in a style that really gets at some of the sadness of the story. Tracks include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ VariousBlue Note Guitar 70s – The Guitar Of BN LA ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great look at the way that the Blue Note record label renewed its commitment to jazz guitar in the 70s – finding some of the best new talents of the decade, and recording the instrument in a variety of different ways! The Blue Note jazz funk sides of the time are very well-known, but the music here is nicely expanded past those modes – to include some great mellow moments, fusion tracks, and even some numbers that completely defy easy description! There's a heck of a lot of great guitarists on the set – Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Robby Krieger, Dom Minasi, Ray Gomez, Reggie Lucas, Earl Klugh, John Rowin, Tommy Bolin, and Joe Beck – and CD2 is made entirely of tracks that feature David T Walker on guitar. Titles include "Night Whistler", "Sister Love", "Dance Band", and "Makin It" by Donald Byrd – plus "Some Neck" by Ronnie Foster, "Beginnings" and "Soft Cycles" by Gene Harris, "New York City" and "Golden Rainbows" by Alphonse Mouzon, "Baby's Gone" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Sitting Here All Alone" by The Waters, "New Day" and "Fever" by Ronnie Laws, "Only Women Bleed" by Carmen McRae, "RK Bossa" by Dom Minasi, "Gum Popper" by Robbie Krieger, "Andy's Walk" by Chico Hamilton, and the killer cuts "Mango Sunrise" and "Rise On" by John Lee & Gerry Brown.
