Miles DavisMiles Davis – The Lost Concert ... CD
Sleepy Night, 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.98
A lost concert from Miles Davis, and one that would be one of his last as well – recorded in a style that begins with the electric groove of some of his albums from the late 80s, but which also opens up into some more old school modes as Davis is joined by an array of famous guests! The set begins with a group that has Kenny Garrett on alto and Deron Johnson on keyboards – working with Miles on "Human Nature", "New Blues", and "Perfect Way". But then things change up a fair bit – and move into a version of "All Blues" with Steve Grossman on tenor and Chick Corea on electric piano, a take on "In A Silent Way" by Wayne Shorter on soprano and Joe Zawinul on keyboards, a version of "Katia" with both John McLaughlin and John Scofield on guitars – and lots more surprises on following tracks – which even include work from Herbie Hancock on keyboards and Jackie McLean on alto sax. Additional titles include "Penetration", "Wrinkle", "Dig", "Watermelon Man", and "Jean Pierre". CD

Steven & SterlingOne Magic Night ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time! Steven & Sterling are a hip duo who trade vocals back and forth nicely – working over rhythms that are mellow and midtempo, often with a hip undercurrent of jazz as well! The pair worked together previously in the trio Living Proof – but really come into their own here as a duo – with a mature sound that's even better than before. The players are a big factor in the album's sound – and they include Reggie Burke on keyboards, Paul Jackson Jr on guitar, Ollie E Brown on drums – all working with arrangements handled by Sylvester Rivers and the album's producer Tito Jackson – who's surprisingly sharp at the helm of the whole thing. The balance here is great – smooth, but never sleepy – and the record stays away from some of the more chart-friendly modes of the time. Titles include "One Magical Night", "Fragile", "Don't Stop", "Just One Step", "Dead Giveaway", and "Tomorrow". CD

✨✧ Julie LondonLondon By Night (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Breathy vocals from the great Julie London – an album recorded early in her years on Liberty Records, but with a slightly full sound overall! Backings are by the orchestra of Pete King – a little heavy on the strings, but never too much so – just enough to give the tunes a sad-tinged sort of sound that glows and shimmers nicely behind Julie's vocals – very much in the moody feel you might expect from the trashy image of London in an alley on the cover! The set's never sleepy, and has a nicely dark undercurrent – on titles that include "Nobody's Heart", "The Exciting Life", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Well Sir", "In The Middle Of A Kiss", "Pousse Cafe", "Mad About The Boy", and "My Man's Gone Now".

Louis ArmstrongSatchmo At Symphony Hall – The Complete Performances ... CD
Decca/Verve, 1947. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A classic live date from Satchmo – and expanded to include the complete performances on that legendary night at Boston's Symphony Hall – for the first time ever! Recorded in November of 1947 and originally released in '51, it's never before been issued with both the first and second sets that night. There's also a number of great tunes here that were released before in edited versions, but fully presented here. It's such wonderful stuff – both as a top-shelf document of this period of American jazz – and as a brilliant example of Satcho's charming stage presence. His trumpet and solo vocals are well captured, and you can here up humming along on the instrumentals, too. The players at this point who are All Stars, indeed, include Jack Teagarden on vocals and trombone, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Dick Cary on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, and Sid Catlett on drums – plus some great vocals by Velma Middleton. 29 songs on 2CDs – in a hardback package with a great booklet – and featuring "When It's Sleepy Time Down South", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "Body And Soul", "Steak Face", "Back O'Town Blues", "St James Infirmary", "Mop Mop", "Jack Armstrong Blues", "That's My Desire", "C Jam Blues", "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", "Mahogany Hall Stomp" and more – many previously unreleased!

Earl KlughDream Come True/Crazy For You/Low Ride ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1980/1981/1983. New Copy 2CD ... About May 5, 2022 (delayed)
An Earl Klugh triple-header – three great albums in a single package! First up is Dream Come True – warm guitar magic from Earl – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". Crazy For You steps along with a smooth and soulful groove here – one that mixes Earl Klugh's own acoustic guitar with warm electric instrumentation, and some nice use of strings as well! Arrangements are by a few different folks who all help shape the sound of the set – Greg Phillinganes, Patrick Williams, Dave Matthews, and Johnny Mandel – all talents who know how to hit the right balance of soul and sophistication to work well with Klugh's guitar! Titles include "I'm Ready For Your Love", "Soft Stuff", "Broadway Ramble", "Calypso Getaway", "Crazy For You", and "Twinkle". Low Ride is one of Earl Klugh's tightest groovers of the 80s – a record that features plenty of great keyboards from Greg Phillinganes, who slides in perfectly alongside Earl's guitar! The set also features a bit of electric guitar from Paul Jackson – and there's an acoustic/electric balance here that's not unlike the albums of Rodney Franklin over at Columbia – although Klugh's got an arguably tighter, more R&B-influenced sound overall. There's a few light vocals at points – and titles include "Low Ride", "Back In Central Park", "Night Drive", "I Never Thought I'd Leave You", and "If You're Still In Love With Me". CD

✨✧ Felix SlatkinFantastic Percussion ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Lots of percussion – and loud! Slatkin's normally a bit sleepy, but this record's filled with drums and chimes and vibes and loads of exotic percussion instruments – and swings with a groove that's in the best of the Liberty easy styles from the late 50s. Titles include "Night Train", "Caravan", "Blue Tango", "Opus 1", and "The Happy Hobo". The tracks are less originals than they are oddly-worked (or worked-over) versions of more familiar tunes.

Hank WilliamsI'm Gonna Sing – The Mother's Best Gospel Radio Recordings ... CD
BMG, Early 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99 26.99
Hank Williams may be best known as a hard-living figure in early country music – one who put his heart on the line, and left the planet all too soo – but like most of his contemporaries, Hank also had a special ear for a spiritual tune – the kind of Sunday morning tracks that were often sung as redemption for the sins of Saturday night! That balance is crucial to country music, and maybe nobody struck it better than Williams – as you'll hear here in a set of recordings that were all pulled from his classic radio programs done for the Mother's Best Flour company! These are tracks that were never issued on record at the time – and while some of Hank's biggest hits are of the honky tonk variety, these cuts also show the way he had a different side of appeal to the plain folks out there in his audience too. The cuts here aren't sleepy church tunes – as Williams sings them with the kind of heartbreaking style he brought to his love songs other numbers – and the set features 40 classics from these rare recordings, served up here for the first time together!

VariousCocktail Disco – Mixed By Dimitri From Paris ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 19.99
A whole new genre of disco – served up by one of the biggest club collectors in the world! Dimitri's the man who's guided us through so many other great sets of rare disco tracks over the years – and this time around, he's launching new look at the form! Cocktail Disco is a unique variation that's often heavy on orchestrations, and which sometimes has echoes of older jazz, vocal, or Latin recordings – classic influences that simmer nicely through the mix – and help deepen the sound of the already-soulful late 70s style! And although "cocktail" normally means laidback or sleepy, these tunes definitely aren't – because all tracks here are in a soaring midtempo mode or better – cuts you'd be happy to play with some of the funkier numbers on the dancefloor, and which should stand out nicely, given their unique twist. 2CD set features 21 titles that include "Summertime" by Blue Velvets, "What You Need Is My Love" by Cindy Rodriguez, "It's Got To Be Love" by Darcus, "Ocean's Apart" by Vast Majority, "Show You The Way To Go" by Charlie's Roots, "Again" by Night People, "Lady Of The Night" by Ray Martinez, "Disco Village" by J Elliot Group, "Something About You" by Moses, "Baby I Just Wanna Love You" by Jonell Allen", "Canteen" by Serenade, "Starflight" by The Band Who Fell To Earth, "Take Me With You" by Ralfi Pagan, "Never Too Late" by Ms Victoria Barnes, and "Girl From Ipanema (disco version)" by Astrud Gilberto.

✨✧ Johnny MathisUp Up & Away/Love Is Blue/Those Were The Days/Sings The Music Of Bert Kaempfert ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A quartet of albums from Johnny Mathis – served up here in a special 2CD set! Up Up & Away is Mathis' first set back at Columbia after a brief hiatus – a record that shows a newly mature style that's wonderfully suited for Johnny's amazing voice! Mathis tones are every bit as perfect as before – but he's also got a maturing approach to the lyrics that's really nice – maybe a bit more pause, or thoughtfulness, which only increases the sense of feeling in the tunes. Of course, the great charts by Glenn Osser also help too – lush, but never sleepy, and showing their own sort of maturation too. Titles include "Misty Roses", "Drifting", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "Far Above Cayuga's Waters", and "Where Are The Words". Love Is Blue is a late 60s set that furthers the maturing Mathis modes of his return to Columbia Records – a set that's filled with great adult pop numbers from the time, recast by Johnny Mathis in his trademark vocal mode! There's a fair bit of Bacharach in the mix – which makes for a meeting of two pop vocal generations in one sweet album – and the rest of the tunes are pretty hip too, with work by Henry Mancini, Jimmy Webb, and others. Strings figure into most of the arrangements – but never in a sleepy way – and titles include "Walk On By", "Venus", "Love Is Blue", "Never My Love", "Moon River", "I Say A Little Prayer", "The Look Of Love", and "Don't Go Breakin My Heart". Those Were The Days is a title tune sung famously by Mathis as a single – but even better are the rest of the tracks on the set – a cool batch of 60s numbers that really show Johnny stretching out comfortably with some new material, but never in ways that mess with his amazing vocal approach at all! Backings often have a gentle dip underneath the strings – letting Mathis pick up some slight groovy rhythms at points, on titles that include "Light My Fire", "59th Street Bridge Song", "This Guy's In Love With You", "You Make Me Think About You", "The World I Used To Know", and "Turn Around Look At Me". Last up is Sings The Music Of Bert Kaempfert – a special record devoted to the songs of German maestro Bert, best known as an instrumental star on record, but also a key songwriter for many classics of the 60s. Johnny's vocals are a great fit for the gentle flow and slow-stepping rhythms of the Kaempfert tunes – and titles include "Strangers In The Night", "Danke Schon", "Wonderland By Night", "Spanish Eyes", "Lady", "LOVE", and "Remember When".

Antonio Carlos JobimAntonio Carlos Jobim Songbook Vol 1 ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1996. Used ... $14.99
Forget all of those weak Jobim tributes that have been put out by record companies in the US whenever they can get 3 or 4 bossa-minded players to record in a sleepy nightclub! This is the real deal: a 5 volume set dedicated to the master Brazilian composer/singer/songwriter – with all tracks recorded fresh, in the studio, by some of the greatest Brazilian musicians of the past 30 years!

✨✧ Sleepy MatsumotoSamba De Sun ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto is a reedman who grabbed us strongly the first time we ever heard him play – on one of the first big band albums by Toshiko Akioshi in the 60s – and he's also one who continued to grow and refine his craft in the 70s, with an amazingly personal sound by the end of the decade! This album's one of Sleepy's best – the kind of set that makes him an instant heir to American giants like Sonny Sitt or Sonny Rollins – who he easily rivals for his ability to blow strong and long over the span of the extended tunes of the set – never failing to find new ideas in his solos, and always making us feel like we've just stumbled upon his genius all over again in the process! The group's a quartet – with Hideo Ichikawa on piano, Takashi Mizuhashi on bass, and Hideo Sekine on drums – and titles include the long "Back To The Sea", "Samba De Sun", and "Stella By Starlight" – plus "Round Midnight" and "Anaid".
