Kitty KallenMy Coloring Book ... LP
RCA, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Key work from Kitty Kallen's comeback period at the start of the 60s – work that showcases her wonderfully fragile way of putting over a ballad – a sad-tinged sound that's different from most other singers! There's a slight hint of country roots in Kitty's voice at times, but the style is relatively sophisticated overall – scored with lush backdrops by Ray Ellis on the mellower tunes, and some slight more jazz-based elements on the uptempo tunes. Titles include "Little Things Mean A Lot", "My Coloring Book", "I'll Buy That Dream", "If I Give My Heart To You", "In The Chapel In The Moonlight", "I'll Walk Alone", and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with obi, printed inner sleeve, and insert!)

Kitty WhiteNew Voice In Jazz ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good ... $9.99
Kitty White's first album for Mercury – a sublime set recorded right at the height of Mercury's jazz years – and done in a personal, unfettered style that's really great – right up there with more famous albums for the label by Dinah Washington or Sarah Vaughan from the same time. Backing is by a small combo that includes Gerald Wiggins on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Callender on bass, and Chico Hamilton on drums – plus some especially nice tenor sax work from Georgie Auld, who cuts in nicely next to Kitty's dark-hued vocals. Titles include "Skylark", "So Many Beautiful Men", "If You Were Mine", "Among My Souvenirs", "Softly", "Out Of This World", and "See Saw". LP, Vinyl record album
(Drummer logo pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Kitty WhiteSweet Talk ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar – plus some Latin percussion from Carlos Vidal on the bottom. Yet despite the presence of all of these players, many numbers have an up-close quality that makes us feel like we're hearing Kitty's moody vocals in the backroom of some private club in LA. Her phrasing is great throughout – articulate, but never too much so – and titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "It Was So Beautiful", "Alone Together", "Talk Me Some Sweet Talk", "Please Be Patient", and "Dat's Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Monday MichiruDelicious Poison ... CD
Kitty (Japan), 1996. Used ... $4.99
An album that has Monday Michiru returning to her jazz funk "roots", and singing with a band that plays live throughout, with no overdubs or samples. The band is a tight collective of young Japanese players, and they get a good hard sound that's reminiscent of the playing on the early Brand New Heavies LPs. Of course, Monday sings in the deep soulful style that she always brings to these sessions, and the set includes loads of great cuts like "Tattoo My Heart", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", "Conversations With Myself", "Nadir", and "To Live As To Dream". Great stuff, and one of the best acid jazz LPs to come out in the last decade! CD

Monday MichiruGroovement ... CD
Kitty (Japan), 1994. Used ... $6.99
Another one of Monday Michiru's excellent collaborative efforts with some of the best modern talents in the acid jazz/abstract vibes realm. The album includes some killer tracks in which Monday's smooth soulful voice is mixed with backgrounds by the likes of DJ Krush, Ray Hayden (Opaz), Anton Fier & Bill Laswell, and Shinchi Osawa of Mondo Grosso. Includes a cool remix of "Maiden Voyage", plus "Comfort Of Strangers", "Is This How It Feels", and "When I'm With You". More excellent work by Monday, and although the record's a few years old, it's still some of the best work in the acid jazz vein to come out of the 90's! CD

Monday MichiruJazz Brat ... CD
Verve/Kitty (Germany), 1995. Used ... $2.99
The breakthrough LP that brought Monday Michiru out of Japan, and exposed her work to a new worldwide audience! The record (like so many of her others) features performances by a great array of cool guests, including Cleveland Watkiss, DJ Krush, and Simon Richmond of Palm Skin Productions. The production's very tight, and is a stellar example of the way that Monday mixes jazz funk, soul, and abstract influences into a tight modern soul sound. Loads of great tracks, including "Sunshine After the Rain", "Hold On", "Rainy Daze", "Scat Attack", and "Givin' It". And if our raving comments are not enough, whenever we play this one on the radio in Chicago, we get a massive massive response! CD

✨✧ Hiroshi SatoOrient ... LP
Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence of vocals on about half the tracks give things a nice sense of structure and soul before the keyboards come in and really take off – some mighty nice work on a Yamaha CP-30, which creates some especially great sounds on the instrumental tracks! Sato plays keyboards, and so does Hidehiko Koike – and the record features some great percussion from the mysterious "Pecker". Titles include "Jo Do", "Picnic", "Kalimba Night", "Son Go Kuw", "Doncama", and "Sora Tobu Jutan". LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer BernsteinWalk On The Wild Side ... LP
Choreo/AVA, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of Elmer Bernstein's best soundtracks of the 60s – written for this film set in the brothels of New Orleans in the 30s, with a mix of jazz and dramatic themes. The best cuts are the jazz-based ones – tunes that come across with more of a 60s groove than you'd expect, given the setting of the film, and which are played by a small combo. Other tracks are more serious – and titles include "Juke For Teresina", "Exit Kitty", "Hallie's Jazz", "Iron Rings", "Doll House", and "Walk On The Wild Side". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing on Choreo. Cover has some wear and tape along part of the top seam.)

RadiatorsGhostown (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chiswick (UK), 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 24.99
Not the first record by Irish group The Radiators, but a well-remembered set that definitely put them on the map – a set that hardly changes up much in the way of instrumentation from their punkish debut, but which already has the guys writing smarter, more interesting songs – of the sort that fit nicely in a line with some of the more compelling Irish acts in years to come! The tunes are driving and tight – not as slick as power pop, but every bit as catchy – and graced by looser, accent-inflected vocals that really keep things honest – on tunes that include "Walking Home Alone Again", "Who Are The Strangers", "Kitty Ricketts", "Million Dollar Hero", "Let's Talk About The Weather", "Confidential", and "Johnny Jukebox". Huge 2CD version features 35 more bonus tracks, and a big booklet of notes – unissued singles, different mixes, and lots of other unusual material from the studio sessions! CD

✨✧ Phil UpchurchWay I Feel ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from guitarist Phil Upchurch – and one of the best from legendary arranger Charles Stepney too – a set that uses Upchurch's guitar in the same way that Stepney was using the piano of Ramsey Lewis in the late 60s! The record has full arrangements that are in the best late 60s Chess/Cadet style – rich, but never sleepy – with undercurrents of funk down at the bottom, and sweet backing vocals from a small group that includes Cash McCall and Kitty Haywood. But the real difference is Phil's guitar – which has some fuzzier, trippier elements – which make for a nice contrast with the smoothness of the Stepney backings, at a level that creates one of the most compelling Chess albums of the time! Titles include "Elektrik Head", "Peter Peter", "Way I Feel", "Bacn' Chips", and "You Don't Have To Know". LP, Vinyl record album

Candy, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard soul galore – an overstuffed CD that brings together 2 of the best collections on the mighty Candy label! The package is filled with great singles from the early days of soul – obscure singles that groove with a sound that's influenced heavily by R&B, but which also shares many of the elements of the early funk years. Great stuff all the way through, with a list of titles alone that's funky enough! Tracks include "Scratch That Itch" by Elliott Shavers & The Blazers, "Whiplash" by The Shells, "Mo Gorilla" by The Ideals, "Welfare Cheese" by Emanual Laskey, "The Dog" by Junior & The Classics, "The Chicken Scratch" by JC Davis, "The Wallop" by The Tabs, "Grandma Bird" by The Four Holidays, "You Gotta Change" by Kitty Love, "Whip It On Me" by Sonny Raye, "The Frog" by Sir Guy, "The Cow" by Bill Robinson & The Quails, "Get Down" by Harvey Scales & The 7 Sounds, "Sticky Pig Feet" by RT & The Pot Lickers, and "My Baby Likes To Boogaloo" by Don Gardner.

✨✧ VariousSoul Of A Nation – Jazz Is The Teacher Funk Is The Preacher – Afro-Centric Jazz, Street Funk, & The Roots Of Rap In The Black Power Era 1969 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The hippest funky jazz from the start of the 70s – music that takes all the pride, power, triumph, and challenge of the 60s – and focuses into a bold new energy for a young generation! The work here draws equally from jazz and soul, with lots of other global influences coming into play as well – and together, the tracks present an amazing portrait of a generation moving past the initial Civil Rights struggle – building a new culture through righteous expressions like these! Nearly every track is a classic – and all the artists are ones we've supported for years on their own reissues – and together, the tracks sound wonderful, especially when given the full sort of Soul Jazz presentation with great notes and other details. Titles include "Exchange (part 2)" by Rashied Ali & Frank Lowe, "Space Jungle Funk" by Oneness Of Juju, "Damballa" by The Pharoahs, "Whitey On The Moon" by Gil Scott Heron, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, "Work It Out" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz, "Beneficent" by Tribe, "Sweet Power Your Embrace" by James Mason, "Kitty Bey" by Byron Morris & Unity, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "Theme De Yoyo" by Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group.

✨✧ Duke EllingtonAfro Bossa/Concert In The Virgin Islands ... CD
WEA (France), Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 great albums from Duke Ellington – both recorded for Frank Sinatra's Reprise label in the 60s, with an approach that's different than most of Duke's other work! Afro Bossa is the real winner here – a very groovy album that's certainly Ellington's best for Reprise from the 60s, and a nice batch of tracks that have a distinctly Africanist leaning. We're not too sure about the "bossa", but the rhythm section does skip nicely at times, so you might be able to say that the album's kind of a bossa-ish session. Material's all original, and quite fresh for Ellington at the time. Titles include "Bonga", "Afro Bossa", "Tigress", and "Puple Gazelle". Concert In The Virgin Islands is a bit straighter, but still very nice – and has some very interesting "tropical" type tunes – like "Jungle Kitty", "Fade Up", "Island Virgin", and "Virgin Jungle", as well as some more standard Ellington material.

✨✧ Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA". CD
