Laurie JohnsonEngland's New Big Band Sound ... LP
Colpix, 1964. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A rare American outing from British bandleader Laurie Johnson – an artist who's probably best known for his famous soundtrack work of the 60s, but who steps out here in a surprisingly nice instrumental mode! The style here is a bit like that of John Dankworth on some of his American records – jazzy at the core, but also with larger orchestral flourishes that put the work somewhere between jazz and popular instrumental. But given Johnson's penchant for hip timing and a nicely swinging groove, the album's pretty nice all the way through – never sleepy, and done with a good sense of presence on some of the instruments. Titles include "Jenny", "By Myself", "Pagan Love Song", "Nevada", "South Of The Border", "Bali Hai", "Twango", and "My Favorite Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo.)

Nina SimoneFolksy Nina ... LP
Colpix, 1964. Sealed ... $24.99
Nina's folsky, but she's also jazzy too – and the album's from a key time in which she was finding a very special way to bring the two modes together! Simone could have been a straight jazz singer if she wanted – but as records like this always remind us, she was always striving for something different – a bolder, more righteous way of expressing herself – opening up with a new sort of power that was perfect for the coming change in the 60s! The album's a live one – a setting that always seems to have Nina hitting her stride – and even the familiar tunes take on new energy in the context – a sense of pride and spirituality that's already as great as her work to come for Philips Records. Titles include "Erets Zavat Chalav", "Silver City Sound", "The Young Knight", "The Twelfth Of Never", "Vanetihu", "Lass Of The Low Country", and "When I Was A Young Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited 180 gram Pure Pleasure remaster.)

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Newport ... LP
Colpix, 1960. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A key early moment for Nina Simone – recorded live at Newport in 1960, at a time when the festival was one of the most important showcases for groundbreaking jazz – and a perfect setting for Nina to really let loose in that righteous style that would fuel her career during the 60s! Given that Simone could sometimes be turned out of the cabaret crowd with her politics, the warm welcome she gets at Newport is very fitting support – and you can really hear it in the way she approaches the material! The set's a hip batch of tunes that includes a few standards like "Trouble In Mind" and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", all done with the righteous Simone flair – plus other lesser-known tracks like "Flo Me La" and "Nina's Blues", opened up in the setting with some nice small combo backing! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneNina Simone At Town Hall (180 gram dark pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Colpix/4 Men With Beards, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
An important early live show for Nina Simone – a move from the world of small nightclubs (as mentioned in the title of her first record), to the classy Town Hall venue – working in front of an audience filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect crowd to get the unique bag she was working on at the time! The performance is a great one – mellow, moody, and a bit folksy – with Nina singing and playing piano with power that really rings out in the larger space – really egged on by the enthusiastic response of the audience. Titles include her classic reading of "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", plus "The Other Woman", "Under The Lowest", "Summertime", "You Can Have Him", "Wild Is The Wind", "Return Home", and "Cotton Eyed Joe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 – on pink vinyl!)

Nina SimoneNina Sings Duke Ellington ... CD
Colpix/Roulette, 1962. Used ... $6.99
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneAmazing Nina Simone ... LP
Colpix, 1959. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing is right – as Nina Simone is really taking off here – showing the world that she's way more than just another jazz singer – able to hit some righteous currents that would only explode even more in years to come! Nina's emotion is subtle, but extremely powerful – maybe not as bold as in her late 60s recordings, but already very much part of the performance – even on some of the more standard jazz tunes. Arrangements are by Bob Mersey, and titles include "Blue Prelude", "You've Been Gone Too Long", "Chilly Winds Don't Blow", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", and "That's Him Over There".

✨✧ Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, and OthersJazz Mission To Moscow ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazz from the heart of the cold war – not actually recorded in Moscow, but featuring a bunch of hip players on their return from a tour of the Soviet Union – a historic moment in which west met east, with some groovy jazz in the offing! Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of Phil Woods, the record also features flute and alto from Jerry Dodgion, trombone from Willie Dennis, trumpets from Markie Markowitz and Jimmy Maxwell, and piano from Eddie Costa – and the set features arrangements from Al Cohn on tracks that hit the 5 minute range – tight at the top, with breakaway solos, as you might hear during some of the Cohn/Sims sides for RCA during the 50s! Titles include "Let's Dance", "Mission To Moscow", "The Sochi Boatman", and the obligatory "Russian Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono gold label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Freddie ScottCry To Me – The Best Of Freddie Scott ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard raw soul from Freddie Scott – recorded originally for the New York Shout label during the years 1966 to 1968, and repackaged nicely here with a few unreleased tracks! Freddie made albums in a number of different styles over the years – from pop soul on Colpix, to more introspective mellow material on ABC – but this material's some of his best-remembered, and it features hits like "Are You Lonely For Me" and "Cry To Me", plus tracks like "Shake A Hand", "The Love Of My Woman", "Our Love Grows", "I'll Be Gone", "He Ain't Give You None", "No One Could Ever Love You", and "Open The Door". 20 tracks in all! CD
