Ace (UK), 1946/1947.
CD ... About May 1, 2016
A near-lost chapter in the career of the lovely Hadda Brooks – a key link between the R&B and vocal worlds of the late 40s, heard here in a huge amount of previously unreleased recordings! The set features Hadda's work for the Modern Records label from the years 1946 and 1947 – a ... CD

Portrait Of Sheila
Blue Note, 1962. (reissue)
LP ... On May 6, 2016
One of the only two vocal jazz albums that the Blue Note label ever recorded – 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Live At Montreux
Arista (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About May 25, 2016
Tightly funky work from Ben Sidran – arguably one of his best albums for Arista, thanks to a strong lineup of players, and the open-ended relaxed setting of Montreux! The tracks here are a bit longer than some of Ben's studio sides for the label at the time – and almost hearken back to ... CD

Reprise (Japan), 1972.
CD ... About June 15, 2016
A rare vocal outing from Goldie Hawn – recorded early in her career, and kind of a seminal shift away from the goofier side of her Laugh-In years! The style is surprisingly heartfelt, and quite intimate – a bit like that of Claudine Longet's later records at times, which is well suited ... CD

After Hours (Roulette)
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961.
CD ... About June 29, 2016
A great little set from Sarah – not to be confused with her similarly titled album for Columbia – instead a smooth batch of mature, sophisticated tracks that have Sarah hitting that older boozier style of her Roulette era. Titles include "Vanity", "My Favorite ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955.
CD ... About June 29, 2016
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who sadly only cut a few albums back in the 50s and 60s! The set's a strong one – and has Bev singing easily with the Johnny Smith group – nothing fancy, but quite nice, and with a warm and intimate feel ... CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1959.
CD ... About June 29, 2016
An important early live show for Nina – a move to the classy Town Hall crowd, filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect audience to get the unique bag she was working on at the time – heard in very appreciative tones throughout the set! The performance is a great one ... CD

Dinah '62
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1962.
CD ... About June 29, 2016
Fantastic work from Dinah – who's hitting her stride here in a whole new style, a booze-drenched, sad-eyed mode that's a distinct change from the bossy blues of earlier years. The prime example of this is the excellent "Drinking Again" – one of her standards of the 60s – ... CD
