Lambert, Hendricks & RossBest Of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross (aka The Hottest New Group In Jazz) ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $0.99
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an attempt to completely work the emerging vocalese style onto a full-blown jazz group. This album wasn't their first – but it was the first to really break them with the masses, and it's a vocal jazz classic if there ever was one. Backings are by the Ike Isaacs Trio, plus Harry Edison on trumpet – and titles include "Moanin", "Twisted", "Cloudburst", "Everybody's Boppin", and "Sermonette". 70s version of the group's first album for Columbia – Hottest New Group In Jazz – but works fine as a best of!

Lambert, Hendricks & RossSing A Song Of Basie (ABC pressing) ... LP
ABC, Late 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the first albums ever by this legendary jazz vocal group! LHR do the incredible – and create a set of vocal renditions of standards by the Basie band, putting jazzy lyrics in to replace the instrumental solos, but keeping the same vibe as the original tracks. The sound and approach is amazing – and it's no wonder this record made them instant legends. Titles include "Down For The Count", "Fiesta In Blue", "Blues Backstage", and "It's Sand, Man!"

Annie RossAnnie Ross Sings A Handful Of Songs ... LP
Ember, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
An obscure one from Annie Ross – recording here as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz – not as vocalese and solo-oriented as the sort of recordings that first got her noticed, but still a lot more dynamic than most straighter jazz singers of the time! Arrangements are pretty groovy overall – nicely jazzy, and penned by Johnnie Spence – also produced by John Barry, who really helps keep the right sort of "punch" in the set. Titles include "Fly Me To The Moon", "Nature Boy", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Like Someone In Love", "A Handful Of Songs", and "All Of You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Everest pressing. Cover has a half split top seam.)

✨✧ Annie RossAnnie Ross Sings A Handful Of Songs (plus Gasser/Cranks/bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/El (UK), 1964. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An overstuffed package of work from Annie Ross – one that features a few key albums, plus some rare bonus tracks too! First up is A Handful Of Songs – which has Ross recording as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz – not as vocalese and solo-oriented as the sort of recordings that first got her noticed, but still a lot more dynamic than most straighter jazz singers of the time! Arrangements are pretty groovy overall – nicely jazzy, and penned by Johnnie Spence – also produced by John Barry, who really helps keep the right sort of "punch" in the set. Titles include "Fly Me To The Moon", "Nature Boy", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Like Someone In Love", "A Handful Of Songs", and "All Of You". Next is A Gasser – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". 2CD set also features material from the London cast recording of Cranks – which features Ross with Anthony Newley – plus some songs with Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – and the tune "Let's Fly" by Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers, which was written by Ross.

Dizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of ParisDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma".

Les Jazz ModesLes Jazz Modes ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Very Good- ... $14.99
A haunting bit of jazz by one of the most unique groups in the business. Charlie Rouse's tenor is great, and sounds quite different than on his recordings with Monk. Gildo Mahones plays piano, and he really hits some nice moody lines that don't ever show up on his records with Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross. Julius Watkins is on french horn and Paul Chambers and Ron Jefferson round out the rhythm section, and the group is augmented here with hart and soprano voice. Includes "Strange Tale", "Garden Delights", "Idle Evening", "Blue Modes", and "Town & Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl plays with some surface noise. Cover has small seam splits and a bit of pen on back.)

Novi SingersMy Own Revolution – Novi Singers Rec 1968 to 1971 – Polish Radio Jazz Archives Vol 24 ... CD
Polskie Radio (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99
Very cool live work from this ultra-hip Polish vocal group – at a level that both matches their classic records of the time, and also brings in some other groovy surprises too! The setting is live for all these tracks – and the music often features lots of cool organ from the great Krzystof Sadowski, whose Hammond colors things in alongside all the unusual twists, turns, and vocal explosions of the quartet – singers who are clearly inspired by earlier groups like Les Double Six and Lambert Hendricks & Ross – but who also have already moved into these much more unusual realms of tone and phrasing – at a level that even beats the inventive harmonies of Brazilian groups like Quarteto Em Cy or MPB4. Even the familiar tunes here get reworked in great ways – and titles include "Don't Be Late My Baby", "Once I Loved", "A Calm Evening", "My Own Revolution", "Second Sight", "Secret Life", "Like A Dream In The Sky", and "Introduction".

Novi SingersNovi In Wonderland (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. Used Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the earliest records by the legendary Novi Singers – and a rare MPS set that exposed the group to a larger European audience! Novi hail from Poland, but have a name that's an condensation of the English phrase "new original vocal instruments" – a great summation of the way the quartet use their voices to recreate the feel of instruments in modern jazz – a mode first explored by the Lambert Hendricks & Ross group in the US, but taken to a much farther extreme on this set! The group are supported here by a border-crossing small combo of musicians that includes Zbigniew Namyslowski on alto sax, Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Adam Makowicz on piano, and Billy Brooks on drums – and the sound is cool, laidback, and very groovy – extremely tight, almost even more so than some of the group's Polish albums! Titles include "The Second Side", "Secret Life", "Kulfon", and "Apartment Under The Roof". CD
(Out of print, 2006 pressing. Includes obi and a great gatefold cover – just like the original Saba pressing!)

Novi SingersTorpedo ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Wonderful wonderful – and very groovy! The Novi Singers were a hip little vocal jazz ensemble from Poland in the late 60s and early 70s – and they've got a cool sound that's very much in the style of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross, but with more of a swinging MPS groove! This album's one of the group's greatest – a set that really has them pushing past their initial American influences, into a fluid style that was quite revolutionary for the time – and which pushed the style of a vocal group like this to a whole new level. Tracks are complicated, but never too much so – and the mix of male and female voices is brought out beautifully, with similar warmth to the Singers Unlimited sides for MPS – but in a mode that's often much more groovy and hip! Most tunes are originals, and they feel like some of the best sound library vocal work from the time – such as the work of Barbara Moore. Titles include "Hurry Hurry", "Torpedo", "Misfit", "Something Special", "Quartus", "Right Now", "All Together", and "Last Day On Bondi Beach". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ParkerJazz Perennial – Genius Of Charlie Parker #7 ... LP
Verve, 1949. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of our favorite of Verve's "genius of" collections of Charlie Parker's work – largely because it includes some wonderful and oft-overlooked vocal tunes! 4 of the tracks on the set feature Bird blowing with a vocal chorus arranged by Dave Lambert – in a style that shouldn't work, but does – thanks to Lambert's keen bop sensibilities (heard here before his Lambert Hendricks & Ross years), and to players in the group that include Hal McKusick, Max Roach, and Charles Mingus. Other tracks have Parker either playing in a quartet with Buddy Rich, Ray Brown, and Hank Jones – or in a different group with Kenny Dorham and Tommy Turk. Titles include "Cardboard", "Visa", "Segment", "Passport", "Diverse", "I'm In the Mood For Love", "If I Love Again", and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve trumpeter logo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a split top seam held with aged clear tape.)

✨✧ VariousJingle Bell Jazz ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best album of Christmas jazz you could ever buy! Why? Well, the record's totally hip – with way more going on than just the usual jazz versions of Christmas carols. But unlike other hip Christmas albums, this one also never loses the feeling of the season – and although the work is a bit more challenging than usual for a holiday album, it also always swings, and in a very festive style! Titles include "Deck The Halls" by Herbie Hancock, "Blue Xmas" by Bob Dorough and Miles Davis, "Winter Wonderland" by Chico Hamilton, "Jingle Bells" by Duke Ellington, "We Three Kings" by Paul Horn, "Deck Us All With Boston Charlie" by Lambert Hendricks & Ross, and "Rockin Around The Christmas Tree" by Marlowe Morris.

(80s pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Gildo MahonesI'm Shooting High ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Very hard to find LP by this obscure soul jazz piano giant from the early 60's. Best known as the accompanist for Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross, Mahones has a tight soulful style that's always in the pocket, and sounds like Bobby Timmons or John Wright in their best moments. This LP's unique in that it also features Larry Young on organ on two tracks, and he plays alongside Mahones' piano in a very cool way, especially on the great cover of "Bali Hai". Ozzie Beck sings vocals on another track, "Hey Girl", and Leo Wright plays alto on the great cut "Tales of Brooklyn". A Prestige must-have, and one that they won't be likely to reissue soon. LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese reissue pressing, with insert.)

✨✧ Mike Sammes Singers & The John Gregory OrchestraChannel West (TV Western Themes/Avengers & Other TV Themes/Let's Get Away From It All/The Melody Moves) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly from American sources – taken at a relatively serious level with added vocals from Sammes' group. The second half of the Gregory tracks are more swinging – and feature work from The Avengers and other 60s crime/spy material. Gregory titles include "The Avengers", "Sunset Strip", "Johnny Staccato", "Route 66", "Tightrope", "Sugarfoot", "Maverick", "Bonanza", "Rawhide", and "Perry Mason". The other part of the collecvtion features excellent material from the Mike Sammes Singers – a mixed male/female group who work in a very jazzy style – clearly schooled in the vocalese of Lambert Hendricks & Ross or The Blue Stars – but also working with more of a lyrical approach, and this sprightly feel that would have been perfect on 60s TV. The arrangements are great – jazzier than they are cheesy – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Pick Yourself Up", "Passing Breeze", "Spring Spring Spring", "Nice To Know You Care", "I Know That You Know", and "Manhattan". Package also fetaures more bonus tracks from the Sammes Singers! CD
