✨✧ Jackie & RoyBits & Pieces ... LP
ABC, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Incredible early work from Jackie & Roy – one of their sublime 50s classics on ABC, done in a style that's even groovier than their sessions for Storyville! The whole thing's upbeat, lively, and extremely cheery – a perfect showcase for the pair's vocalese talents – which are heard wonderfully here on both lyrical and scatted numbers! Arrangements are by Bill Holman, Ralph Burns, and Ernie Wilkins – all of whom get the right playful feel for the pair – and a few tunes feature Jackie in the solo spotlight, singing as one of the 50s' most expressive jazz vocalists. Titles include loads of great numbers – including "Say Cheese", "Aura", "Look Around", "Honey Did", and "Stopping The Clock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Jackie & RoyBogie ... LP
Fantasy, 1988. Near Mint- ... $1.99
We love this record – a larger concept album from Jackie & Roy – almost their Ishtar moment! It's late in the career of Jackie & Roy, but the pair haven't faltered a bit. Bogie is a surprisingly great live set from 1988 – a dozen songs dedicated to Humphrey Bogart, either from his films, or written in onor of them – performed by Jackie & Roy in a style that's without schmaltz or hoke – and which features some great lyrical twists that are very much in the "smart" Hollywood mode of the postwar years, which was fading strongly by the time of this session. Titles include "Am I Blue", "Bogie", "As Time Goes By", "Key Largo", "Hong Kong Blues", "Play It Again, Sam", "Moanin Low", and "How Little We Know". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie & RoyBy Jupiter & Girl Crazy ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
One of the most obscure albums ever from the groovy vocal team of Jackie Cain and Roy Kral – and one of the most compelling, too! The duo take on songs from two older musicals for the set – but completely transform them with their playful, inventive approach to arrangements – a way of presenting the lyrics in different ways from track to track – both in the way they trade or share lines, and in the way the instrumentation comes across! Players are sadly not credited in the notes, but we're guessing that Roy directed them from the piano – through modes that are nicely swinging, even in mellower moments – and much hipper than the roots of these tunes might make you expect. But then again, we've come to expect a lot from Jackie & Roy over the years – and they certainly deliver here! Titles include "Jupiter Forbid", "Everything I've Got", "I Got Rhythm", "Bidin My Time", "Could You Use Me", and a great bossa version of "Careless Rhapsody". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyChanges – Jackie & Roy ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Jazzy Verve-y grooves by this fab duo, with arrangements by Charles Calello and Claus Ogerman that are similar to those used on the pair's Grass album, but with a bit less pop psychedelia thrown into the mix. Tracks are groovy pop stuff, like "Norweigian Wood", and "The Word" – plus more obscure numbers, like "Changes", "Counting", and "Bye Bye". Always great stuff from Jackie & Roy – and work we've come to appreciate more than their classic work! LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the rare Columbia sessions from Jackie & Roy – and a set that has them cutting new small combo versions of tunes they also did in the 50s – giving them a leaner style here, and a mighty nice swing! Includes a great version of "Dahuud", "Could You Use Me", "Together Wherever We Go", "Cheerful Little Earful", "Season In The Sun", "Glasses & Ashes & Bottles & Cans", and "You Smell So Good".

Jackie & RoyFree & Easy ... LP
ABC, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the grooviest records ever by the wonderful vocal team of Jackie & Roy – a sweetly swinging 50s session, with great LA jazz backings from the orchestra of Bill Holman! There's a breezy vibe to the whole thing that's years ahead of its time – not pop harmony vocals, but an approach that's strongly rooted in jazz, but also loosened up from the strict vocalese of the bop singers too. The cover's got Jackie & Roy playing on a slide at the sea – and that free and easy image certainly sums up the feel of the music – a lightly playful blend of jazz vocalese, ballads, and strong duet numbers, all sung with the usual Jackie & Roy charm. The set includes some great tunes, too – including "Pent Up House", "Free & Easy", "So It's Spring", and "Aren't You Glad You're You". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyGlory Of Love ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of our favorite albums by the team of Jackie & Roy – a really special little set that features small combo backing, great tunes, and some of the best vocals of their early career! The album features Roy playing piano in a quartet with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a lightly jazzy feel to the whole set, one that really works well with the vocals from the pair. Jackie takes the lead on some numbers, but most have her and Roy singing duets – in that cool mix of scatting and lyrical interplay they do so well. Pretty groovy stuff – especially for the 50s – and titles include "Let's Get Away From It All", "You Inspire Me", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "The Glory Of Love", "I Love You Real", and "Miz Margret". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy ... CD
Savoy/Atlantic, 1948. Used ... $3.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Jackie & Roy – cut when the fab vocal duo was still in the company of Charlie Ventura, forging a bop harmony sound that was as groundbreaking as the early vocalese work of Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, or Annie Ross! The pair had a hip swinging style that was always great – with a strong talent for riffing vocally on a bebop tune, then shifting over for a serious interpretation of a moody ballad, and rolling back again into a hard uptempo number. This set has them in the company of some tight members from Ventura's group – including Charlie himself on tenor, Norman Faye on trumpet, and Benny Green on trombone. Titles include "Lonely Woman", "Pina Colada", "FYI", "Euphoria", and "Deed I Do". CD also features one bonus track not on the original LP! CD

Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy In The Spotlight ... LP
ABC, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Jackie & Roy at the height of their ABC powers – really stepping out strongly here with a bold jazz vocal approach that nobody else can touch! Both Roy Kral and Jackie Cain get a few moments of their own in the spotlight, especially Jackie, who steps out on a number of the tracks – but as usual, the duo's at their best when singing together – which they do beautifully here, trading lyrical lines with tremendous charm! Most instrumentation is small combo – with Roy on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – and titles include "From This Moment On", "Kiss & Run", "Cake Walk", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Who Cares", and "How Are You Fixed For Love".

Jackie & RoyLike Sing – Songs By Dory & Andre Previn ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A really unique little record from Jackie & Roy – one that has them singing a super-fresh batch of tunes from budding songwriters Andre and Dory (nee Langdon) Previn! The tunes are all really great – the kind of playful material that seems to bring out the best in Jackie & Roy, on a level that matches all those excellent Tommy Wolf/Fran Landesman tunes that sparkled so much on the pair's 50s albums for ABC. Backing is in a small combo mode, and the set has the best energy of Jackie & Roy's earlier years – in a format that sometimes has them singing duet, sometimes trading lines, and sometimes stepping out solo. Titles include "Like Love", "The Runaround", "Sing Me An Abstract Song", "Control Yourself", "You're Married", and "Where, I Wonder". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyLovesick ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
Wonderfully groovy work from the team of Jackie Cain & Roy Kral – a set that has the pair moving into much hipper modes for the 60s, and really taking off from the greatness of earlier records! Backing is still by Roy's core trio, with acoustic piano at the lead – but the addition of electric bass to the lineup really helps the tunes step along nicely – hitting a groove not heard before from Jackie & Roy, with results that are completely sublime! There's a definite bossa influence that comes into some of the best tracks – a skipping, lilting approach to rhythm that's made even better by the unique dual vocals of the team, especially when they're singing wordlessly. But even when lyrical vocals are part of the mix, the sound is still great too – and Jackie & Roy have a way of bringing charm to a tune that few other singers can touch! Titles include "Lovesick", "A Big Beautiful Ball", "You Really Started Something", "Let's Begin", "Mimosa & Me", "Corcovado", "Samba Triste", and "The World Is Your Balloon". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest albums ever cut by Jackie and Roy! This one captures them in the early days – right after they'd left Charlie Ventura, and were beginning to sing and pen some fantastic little jazz ditties on their own. The album features the recorded debut of Tommy Wolf, who would become one of their greatest writers – on the track "Season In The Sun" – plus a number of great tunes by Roy, like "Why Not Admit It", "You Are The One", and "Hook Line And Snare".

Jackie McLeanIt's Time! ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
It certainly was time – time for Jackie McLean to break out of his older bop mode, and hit a whole new level of playing with a tight group of "new thing" compatriots like Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Charles Tolliver on trumpet! The record isn't as totally "out there" as some of his other ones from this period, but it's a seminal release in Jackie's modernist period – and it's one of the hardest to find from the era. Filled with warmly wonderful original compositions like "Revillot", "Snuff", "Truth", and "Das Dat" – the record is unpacked and remodeled nicely by the trio of young players, aided by Jackie's moody alto, and given a great spin by Roy Haynes on drums. Striking cover, too – with a huge field of exclamation points! CD

VariousPlay It Again – R&B Answers, Copycats, & Follow-Ups Vol 1 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A really cool collection – one that brings together 32 answer songs and follow-ups from the 50s – all R&B numbers that stand more than strongly enough on their own, but which are even cooler when you know that most of them are kind of a "part 2" to bigger hits of the time! Unlike other packages of this nature, which often also include the hits – this one just features the more obscure follow-ups – which makes the whole thing a lot more fresh, even as some of the tunes echo familiar melodies or themes. There's plenty to love here if you dig older R&B on labels like King, Chess, Atlantic, and Modern – and titles include "Play It Again" by Pat Lundy, "My Real Gone Rocket" by Jackie Brenston, "Mr Hound Dog's In Town" by Roy Brown, "Pappa" by Benny Brown, "Florence Don't Leave Me" by The Paragons, "Charlie Brown Got Expelled" by Joe Tex, "I Found Out" by The Du Droppers, "Yes I Will Love You Tomorrow" by Jon E Holiday, "Be My Girl" by Dee Dee Sharp, "Babalu's Wedding Day" by The Eternals, "I Quit My Knockin" by Carol Fran, and "All In Your Mind" by The Harptones.

Andrew HillBlack Fire (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 34.99
Insanely wonderful music from Andrew Hill – a lean, stripped-down session that has Hill working at his firey best – in a space that's somewhere between the "new thing" recordings of Jackie McLean, and the brooding brilliance of Andrew's later Smokestack session! The group here has some key figures fleshing out the sound – a young Joe Henderson, blowing tenor with a very edgey quality – the very versatile Richard Davis on bass – and the great Roy Haynes on drums, very much at his most fluid interpretation of rhythm! The whole set's pretty darn great – one of the more mindblowing Blue Notes you'll ever hope to buy – and tracks include "Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Cantarnos", and "McNeil Island".

A perfect example of why the Charlie Ventura group was one of the most popular live acts on the west coast scene of it's day! Producer Gene Norman really manages to capture the charm of the group in all its glory – recorded live in a lineup that features Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bennie Green on trombone, and Boots Mussulli on alto – plus some great scatted vocals from the team of Jackie & Roy! The recording's got a natural, flowing quality that really gets at the liveness of the set – and the horns come together beautifully throughout – in that wonderful mix of bop and swing that was the Ventura trademark! Titles include "Boptura", "Flamingo", "Birdland", "Dark Eyes", "High On An Open Mike", and "Lullaby In Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

From bop to swing – and everything in between! The album's a classic performance by Charlie Ventura – recorded in Pasadena in 1949, with his septet that included Benny Green on trombone, Boots Mussuli on alto, and vocalese bits by Jackie & Roy! Ventura was a key link in two jazz traditions of the late 40s, and with help from Green and Mussuli, he really cuts things up on the set. Jackie & Roy sing on "East Of Suez", "Euphoria", and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" – and other tunes include "If I Had You", "Fine & Dandy", and "How High The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

An extremely groovy batch of tunes – compiled from the catalog of Verve (and related labels), selected to perfection by Thievery Corporation! These guys have a great reputation for crafting new grooves with a classic sound – and they've no doubt arrived at that talent after a long study of older tracks. Thus, it's no surprise that they've been turned loose on the Verve catalog to pick out some of their favorites – tunes that the stodgy ol' reissue producers would have passed up, were it not for them!

The group's co-led by Kenny Dorham and Jackie McLean – with rhythm backing by Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – a trans-continental trio of players who really make for a lot of fire in the date! The quintet play a fiercely modernist approach to hardbop – somewhat like McLean's studio albums from the time, but even a bit more unbridled, thanks to the live setting of the album – which was recorded at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco.

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of rare soul groovers – one of those UK packages that are put together as a memory of their own great Northern Soul scene, but which has equal appeal to any fan of rare and unusual American soul! The set list is great – and there's maybe a nicely wider range of styles here than on the kind of Northern Soul sets that follow in a stricter Detroit-inspired style – as there's echoes of funk, some key 70s numbers, and even a few British tracks that sit wonderfully next to the US songs. The set's divided up into two modes – CD1 features 28 60s Northern Soul tracks, and CD2 features 21 numbers from the 70s – titles that include "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels, "You Baby" by Jackie Trent, "Pick Up My Toys & Go Home" by The Devonnes, "Baby You've Got Me" by The Sapphires, "When Love Slips Away" by Margo & The Marvettes, "That's What Mama Say" by Leonard Whiting, "Check It Baby" by Willie & The Mighty Magnificents, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Playthings, "Ain't No Soul Left In These Ol Shoes" by Kenny Bernard, "Ain't Nothin But A Houseparty" by The Show Stoppers, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Alan Bown Set, "The Real Thing" by Kim Davis, "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summers Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Dreaming A Dream" by Crown Heights Affair, "On The Real Side" by Larry Saunders, "Something Fishy Is Going On" by Universal Mind, "Forget That Girl" by Jeannie Napoli, "I Got The Need" by The Moments, "My Man Is On The Way" by Rhetta Young, "Beautiful Woman" by Derek Martin, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "I Want To Give You My Everything" by Carl Douglas, "Country Girl" by Soul Train Gang, "Gee Baby" by The Festivals, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, and "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy.

The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

An incredibly rich collection of work from the legendary Brunswick and Dakar Records labels – and one of the first to really get at the labels' rich legacy of 7" singles that were never issued on any sort of full length albums! The Brunswick sound was a powerhouse in the late 60s and early 70s – a force that saw big records from The Chi-Lites, Jackie Wilson, Artistics, and others – yet the company also recorded a heck of a lot more music too – all of which was every bit as great as the hits, from the grooves at the bottom, to the tight arrangements in the middle, and the fantastic range of vocals on the top! This series finally gets at digging into all the many artists who never issued full albums on Brunswick or Dakar Records – and this third volume features 28 tracks that include "The Great Pretender" by Linda Hopkins, "Somebody I Know" by Wales Wallace, "Your Love Controls My World" by Johnny Williams, "Little Bitty Pretty One" by Frankie Coe, "What Kind Of Girl" by Demetriss Tapp, "Don't Take It Out On This World" by Adam's Apples, "Hey Mama" by The Admirations, "Suddenly" by Tony Drake, "Can't Stop Loving You" by Otis Leavill, "You Have No Time To Lose" by The Four Pennies, "I Can't Help Myself" by Chuck Carter, "Nobody Can Love You" by Leroy Taylor, and "It's All Over Between Us" by Lee Charles.

In addition to singles issued by De-Lite – best known as the key home of Kool & The Gang – the set also features tracks from the related Vigor and Red Coach labels – two excellent east coast imprints that were filled with funky combos who were just bursting with talent – very much tuned to the fast-funk styles that exploded in the years before disco!

A lusty set of tracks from the postwar years – music that doesn't just hint at sex, but which often seems to provide it, in the form of slinky female vocals, groans of pleasure, or other surprising elements that make these tunes a fair bit sexier than we might have guessed! The styles are a mix of pop, rock, jazz vocal, and other modes – and the presentation and production is as playful as the cover – perfect for this hefty 32 track collection, with titles that include "Topless" by Rolls Royce & The Wheels, "That Makes It" by Jayne Mansfield, "Crazy Vibrations" by The Bikinis, "Christine" by Miss X, "Scratch My Back"b y Lola Dee & Rusty Draper, "Separate The Men From The Boys" by Mamie Van Doren, "Be Not Notty" by Elke Sommer, "Charge It" by The Playboys, "The Whip" by The Frantics, "Hall Of Shame" by Bobbie Bolden, and "Little Girl" by John & Jackie.
