Sheila JordanYesterdays ... CD
High Note, 1990. Used ... $9.99
An excellent live date from Sheila Jordan – and quite an unusual one, too! The set features Jordan's vocals with just the bass of Harvie S for accompaniment – a wonderfully spare setting that lets Sheila open up in all those freely inventive ways she first started showing us in the 70s – that great balance between open expression and classic swinging that nobody else could do as well as her! Harvie's bass provides a warmly soulful undercurrent to the set, and Jordan's vocals are as deft, imaginative, and inspiring as always – on titles that include "Better Than Anything", "Mood Indigo", "Waltz For Debby", "I Concentrate On You", "Lazy Afternoon", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "Yesterdays". CD

Sheila Jordan & Arild AndersenSheila ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1977. Used ... $11.99
One of the hippest albums ever recorded by Sheila Jordan – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of her work! The album's a set of spare duets recorded in Oslo with bassist Arild Andersen – in a setting that recalls some of the initial experimental work she'd done with Roswell Rudd, but with an even more spacious sound overall – one that lets Jordan dominate the tunes strongly with an amazing command of rhythm and timing! The approach is never too self-indulgent, and Andersen's warm tones on bass round out the tunes with a subtle sense of soul. Tunes are a mix of old standards and a few hipper 70s numbers – and include "Song Of Joy", "The Saga Of Harrison Crabfeathers", "On Green Dolphin Street", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "The Lady", and "Better Than Anything". CD
(Tray card has a veryy light stain in one corner – still a nice copy.)

✨✧ Sheila JordanPortrait Of Sheila ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the only two vocal jazz albums that the Blue Note label recorded back in the day – and a haunting batch of tracks from a young Sheila Jordan! The style here is quite different than that of Jordan's later, more experimental records – and this early session shows her as an extremely talented young vocalist, with a unique approach that adds a sparkling modernist touch to familiar tunes – yet which still keeps things in a relatively more straightforward fashion. There's a great mixing of older and newer visions in the set – not just in Jordan's vocals, but also in the small combo backing by the trio of Barry Galbraith on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Denzil Best on drums. Titles include great versions of "Baltimore Oriole", "Dat Dere", and "Hum Drum Blues" – plus the tunes "I'm A Fool To Want You", "Am I Blue", "Laugh Clown Laugh", and "Who Can I Turn To?".

Maria Joao & Aki TakaseLooking For Love ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Germany), 1987. New Copy ... $7.99
Maria Joao is one of the most unique vocal talents in jazz – a singer who's partly inspired by the new freedoms of the more experimental female jazz vocalists of the 70s, but one who also draws a lot from the hippest Brazilian singers too! There's an approach here that mixes together Sheila Jordan with Joyce, Nana Caymmi with Karin Krog – but all at a level that also explodes with new imagination too, especially when paired with the very dynamic piano of Aki Takase! The set's got plenty of sharp edges and vocal/piano experiments, but also never fails to find a way to swing – on titles that include "Mae Dou Iho Nao", "My Favorite Things", "Estranha Forma De Vida", "Watashi No Obakasan", "Don't Shout At Me/Amanojaku", and "Confirmation/Donna Lee/Au Privave".

Egil KapstadEpilog – Bill Evans In Memoriam ... LP
Nopa (Norway), 1984. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Way more than just a tribute to Bill Evans in the usual trio mode – as the group here is led by Norwegian pianist Egil Kapstad, but is a quartet with Bjorn Johansen on tenor, Bjorn Alterhaug on bass, and Egil Johansen on drums – with guest vocals from Sheila Jordan, and work by a string quartet too. The set features one long composition – the beautiful "Epilog". LP, Vinyl record album

Claudia Solal & Benoit DelbecqHopetown ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2020. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
Really evocative songs from French vocalist Claudia Solal – delivered here with some creative sounds on piano from Benoit Delbecq, at a level that illuminates the words and vocal phrasing quite differently than conventional accompaniment! Solal's songs alone are amazing – written and sung with an experimental style that evokes the best 70s avant work of singers like Sheila Jordan, Karin Krog, or Annette Peacock – vivid and personal, with structures that are very different than conventional jazz vocal material – then illustrated by work from Delbecq that's equally balanced between the keys of the piano and the strings inside the instrument, which occasionally seem to have some sort of Cage-esque "preparations" added to the mix. Titles include "In The Small Of My Back", "Winter Garden", "Inner Otherness", "Euphoria", "No Sake Tonight", "Ultimate Embrace", and "Burning Green". CD

✨✧ Marc LevinSocial Sketches ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Marc Levin is maybe best known for one famous album of avant jazz recorded for the Savoy label in the 60s – but he's equally stunning here in a mid 70s set that got little circulation at the time, but which is a key part of Levin's under-recorded legacy as a leader! The approach is very open and creative, but balanced with that mixture of structure and freedom that Levin's other album shares – almost 60s "new thing" modes, expressed during the 70s loft generation – on long tracks that feature some really stunning shifts in sounds, styles, and instrumental elements! Levin blows cornet, flugelhorn, flute, mellophone, and melodica – and the group also features Seppo Paakkunanine on baritone, flute, and viola – plus Reino Laine on drums, Teppo Auta Aho on bass, and Carita Holmstrom on voice – a singer who makes some especially strong contributions to the record, in a way that maybe echoes some of the Sheila Jordan/Roswell Rudd collaborations. The tunes are fantastic, every bit as striking as their titles – which include "Nylon Coverin Body Smotherin", "Brothers In War", "Letter To President Nixon Re The Chile Affair", and "Student Days New York 1965".

✨✧ Roswell RuddFlexible Flyer ... CD
Black Lion (UK), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant record – much more straight forward, and straight ahead, than much of Rudd's other work, which is why we like it so much! The album's an ingeniously subtle affair – with Rudd on trombone and French horn, working with a small group that features Sheila Jordan on vocals, Hod O'Brien on piano, Arild Anderson on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums. Jordan is at the height of her powers here – singing beautifully in a wordless mode on tracks like "Maiden Voyage" and "Suh Blah Blah Bu Sibi", or straight and icy on one of the best versions of "What Are You Doing the Rest Of Your Life" that we've ever heard! Hod O'Brien is brilliant too – and the album's one of the few widely-released sessions to really display his talents! CD
