Nancy WilsonBroadway My Way (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1963. Used ... $2.99
A great counterpart to Nancy Wilson's classic Hollywood My Way album for Capitol – and like that one, a classy set of tunes arranged and conducted by Jimmy Jones! The style is similar to Nancy's more pop-oriented work, with perhaps a bit more pause on the ballads to unlock their more sophisticated turns – and as usual with Wilson in this sort of setting, the material is really transformed by her presentation – taken way past its roots in popular shows of the time. Titles include "Loads Of Love", "My Ship", "Getting To Know You", "Tonight", "You Can Have Him", and "I Believe In You". CD features 5 bonus tracks too – "Hello Young Lovers", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Come Back To Me", "I'm All Smiles", and "If Ever I Would Leave You". CD

✨✧ Nancy WilsonLike In Love ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A nice early one by Nancy, and a record that shows her roots as a jazz singer, by pairing her lovely voice with swinging arrangements by Billy May. The tracks are mostly standards, but Nancy gives them a nice 60s pop twist, and keeps things nice and sexy with her sultry voice. Titles include "All Of You", "Passion Flower", "Night Mist", "I Want To Be Loved", and "In Other Words". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Spanky WilsonDoin' It (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mother/Expansion (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A bit of soul, a bit of jazz, and some nice funky touches at the bottom – a killer little set from the great Spanky Wilson! Wilson's got a really unique place in music – at one level a soul singer with enough sophistication to rival the sound of Marlena Shaw or Nancy Wilson – but at another level, an artist capable of really letting loose – hitting heavier, funkier modes that neither of those singers could ever touch! This set may well be Wilson's masterpiece – put together with excellent production and arrangements from the great HB Barnum – here coming off a great run of work for other artists in the 60s, and focusing all that experience on making Spanky sound great. Titles include "Kissing My Love", "If I Could", "You", "Don't Mess With Bill", "Light My Fire", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Hurtin", and "The Love That A Woman Should Give To A Man".

Ketty LesterWhen A Woman Loves A Man ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Great work from this lovely vocalist from the 60s! The record features a core group of backing by the Ronnie Brown trio, plus some larger arrangements by Lincoln Mayorga – and the sound is nice and soulful, with a bit of a jazzy touch – in the manner of some of Nancy Wilson's work at Capitol. Includes a cover of Percy Sledge's big title hit, with the gender reversed as in the title, plus the tracks "It Hurts So Bad", "Nice & Easy", "Are You Ready For A Woman", and "Till The End Of Time".

✨✧ Marlena ShawOut Of Different Bags ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard Evans with a hiply swinging sound that bridges modes nicely – and which offers a deeper, more sophisticated take on the kind of territory explored by Nancy Wilson on Capitol during the 60s. Tunes are a real mix of material, but all transformed nicely in this setting – so that standout session tunes like "Ahmad's Blues", "I've Gotten Over You", and "Nothing But Tears" sit very nicely next to more familiar numbers like "Matchmaker Matchmaker", "Alone Together", and "The Eyes Of Love". Also includes a great reading of "Somewhere In The Night"! LP, Vinyl record album

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed MuhammadJazz Is Dead ... LP
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... On June 5, 2020
Maybe the most fantastic record to date from the hands of Adrian Younge – a project done in collaboration with Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and one that features guest appearances from some of the musical giants who first inspired Dusty Groove many years Back! The core energy of the set comes from Younge and Muhammad – who are in a similar funky soul groove as their previous Midnight Hour recording serving up a blend of jazz and soul in a mode that clearly draws a lot of 70s inspiration, but which also has this very fresh, contemporary energy too. Yet there's also a strong difference here once each of the guests step into the mix – a stellar lineup that features alto from Gary Bartz, Fender Rhodes from Marcos Valle and Joao Donato, flute from Brian Jackson, drums from Ivan Mamao Conti, and Hammond B3 from the great Doug Carn – all players who really up the jazz ante for the record, and make the whole thing sound even deeper than most of Younge's other recordings. Titles include "Distant Mode", "Nancy Wilson, "Down Deep", "Apocaliptico", "Jazz Is Dead", "Hey Lover", "Nao Saia Da Praca", and "Conexao". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Carmen McRaeSound Of Silence ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Carmen McRae's great 60s albums for Atlantic Records – a set that's still strongly jazz-based overall, but which seems to have an extra dose of soul at the bottom! The approach is a bit like the best late 60s sides by Nancy Wilson or Marlena Shaw – rooted in jazz, but hipper with some soulful elements in the backdrops – penned in this case by Jimmy Jones and Shorty Rogers, both of whom do a great job with the arrangements. The crispness of Carmen's voice works perfectly in the setting – and titles include "Watch What Happens", "Sound Of Silence", "MacArthur Park", "Can You Tell", and "Gloomy Sunday".

✨✧ Sarah VaughanAfter Hours (Roulette) ... CD
Roulette, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sarah Vaughan may be known for an earlier recording of After Hours for the Columbia label in the 50s – but on this early 60s set for Roulette, the title really fits her style – and is perfect for the mature, melancholy way that Vaughan has of putting over a tune! Sarah always had a strongly technical side to her singing, but on a record like this, she also hits a more naturalistic sort of approach – almost in a Nancy Wilson level, in the way that she makes you feel like she's relating the tune to you personally – although with deeper currents of emotion, but delivered in a very subtle way – partly due to the stripped-down sound of the album. The instrumentation helps hit that late nite vibe that's perfect for the material – thanks to guitar from Mundell Lowe and bass from George Duvivier – on titles that include "Vanity", "My Favorite Things", "Sophisticated Lady", "Easy To Love", "If Love Is Good To Me", and "Great Day".

✨✧ Matt MonroThis Is The Life ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Matt Monro singing with arranger Sid Feller – a surprisingly great talent for the record, and one who does a great job of hitting that subtly dramatic mode that we love in Matt's vocals. Feller nicely restrains some of his usual tricks, and takes Monro to the same sort of sophisticated, adult space in pop that Nancy Wilson was hitting for Capitol at the time – a bit jazzy, sometimes poppy, but never in a way that's gimmicky or aimed at the kids. Titles include "Honey On The Vine", "Merci Cheri", "Sweet Lorraine", "On A Wonderful Day Like Today", "I'm Glad There Is You", "This Is The Life", "On A Clear Day", and "My Best Girl".

✨✧ Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... LP
Cadet, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, you'll find an undercurrent of politics, feminism, and social commentary delivered with surprising intensity. Marlena Shaw's voice is generally sweet, but she's set up in some extremely powerful arrangements by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney that recast even the simplest phrase into a whole new setting of strength and pride – and Bobby Miller of Dells fame also helped make the record what it is, and helped write some of the best songs on the record. The set includes Marlena's classic original reading of "Woman Of The Ghetto", which has been sampled by just about everyone, plus "California Soul", which has a nice hard break, and the tunes "Liberation Conversation", "Where Can I Go?", and the original version of "Go Away Little Boy" – as sweet a statement of womanhood if there ever was one!

✨✧ A Alyce Claerbaut/David SchlesingerStrayhorn – An Illustrated Life (hardcover) ... Book
Bolden, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century – Duke Ellington's longtime musical partner, the mighty Billy Strayhorn! The book presents Billy's life and music in a really great format – using songs as sidebars amidst the larger text – which is then illustrated with a huge amount of beautiful oversized photos, reproductions of scores, and other great images! There's also additional sidebars on Strayhorn from jazz peers who include Clark Terry, Nancy Wilson, Lena Horne, and many others – and the book has this wonderfully vivid approach that really does the creative genius as much justice on the page as he's gotten on record. 196 pages, hardcover, and filled with great images!

✨✧ Barbara HowardOn The Rise ... CD
Remined/Colemine, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost Ohio soul treasure – the initial effort by a singer with a hell of a voice, but one who languished in obscurity after the poor response to this debut LP! Barbara Howard really knocks it out of the park here – singing like a deep soul diva with a hell of a lot of power and focus – but also moving effortlessly through material from a variety of modes, often given a bit of a jazzy twist in the backings – almost as if Howard's trying to be the southern soul answer to Nancy Wilson on Capitol Records! There's maybe a Spanky Wilson vibe to the whole thing – with a similar punch in the arrangements – and titles include "The Man Above", "Save Your Love For Me", "Light My Fire", "My Song", "I Need You", "Welcome Home", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "For Once In My Life".

✨✧ Judy SinghTime For Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBC/Majik Bus (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Obscure work from the Canadian scene at the start of the 70s – served up by a singer who's part soul, part jazz – and who delivers a surprising amount of unusual tunes on the album! Judy Singh's got the class and poise of Nancy Wilson, although maybe a slightly more youthful style overall – and she works here with full arrangements, but at a level that still gives her plenty of time in the spotlight – maybe a jazzier extension of uptown soul modes earlier in the 60s. There's a few familiar tunes in the mix, but also some great originals by Canadian songwriters too – and titles include "Samba Del Sol", "Song Under The Sun", "Another Woman", "Forever Waits Beyond", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "So I'm Wrong Again", and "Up & Down".

✨✧ Barbara McNairHere I Am ... LP
Motown, Late 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of Motown's stranger acts during the late 60s, and a classy singer that was perhaps a bit too classy to sound soulful with the Motown style of production. In a way, a record like this appears to be Motown's attempt to cash in on the Nancy Wilson bag. Might work, too, if Barb's voice was a bit more interesting. Tracks include "My World Is Empty Without You", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Here I Am Baby", and "Fancy Passes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barbara Morrison with Houston PersonI Wanna Be Loved ... CD
Savant, 2017. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great pairing of the voice of Barbara Morrison and tenor of Houston Person – brought together here in a way that's similar to many of the excellent sessions that Person cut with Etta Jones over the years! Morrison's a different sort of singer, though – which makes for a nice sort of change – a vocalist who can hit a deeper range, but also balance that with a sense of class that we totally love – almost as if she's a more soul jazz version of Nancy Wilson, which makes her a great match for Houston's tenor. The rest of the group features Stuart Elster on piano, Richard Simon on bass, and Lee Spath on drums – and titles include "Shiny Stockings", "Perdido", "I'll Close My Eyes", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "September In The Rain", "I Wanna Be Loved", "Work Song", and "Make Me A Present Of You".

✨✧ Jean TurnerFrom The Creative World Of Stan Kenton Comes The Exciting New Voice Of Jean Turner ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A rare Stan Kenton session with a vocalist – one that features the little-known Jean Turner, a really great singer with a mix of soul and jazz that's a lot like Nancy Wilson! Kenton's a bit looser and more swinging here than usual – almost in an Oliver Nelson mode at times to match the style of Jean's vocals on the lively tunes, but sliding into more Kenton-like chromatic hues on the ballads in the set. Arrangements are by Stan, Lennie Niehaus, and Bill Holman – but Jean Turner's the real star of the set, and really captivates us with her confident vocals and wide range of styles! Titles include "Piel Canela", "Sleepy Lagoon", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Love Walked In", "You're The Top", and "It's A Big Wide Wonderful World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has split seams and a torn off corner from the back panel.)
