Helen Merrill/Dick Katz - A Shade of Difference (Milestone). I had forgotten how good this album is - one of the most imaginative jazz vocal albums ever. And there are two Alec Wilder songs! (Many folks here know of my enthusiasm for Wilder's music.)

One selection does remind me of one of my favorite musicians' jokes:

Q: How many girl singers does it take to sing "My Funny Valentine?"

A: Apparently all of them.

I'd like to get that LP at some point. It sounds/looks interesting.

Mosaic has reissued it in their single series, paired with the Merrill/Katz album that preceded it (that's one's good, too, but not as good as this one). The customer reviews are pretty contentious concerning the sound quality. I haven't heard the Mosaic, so I don't know.

Just issued for the first time this year - totally killer. No Business website.

This is why I'm reluctant to sell any records or CDs which don't immediately strike me....

In honor of Bloomsday, I decided to spin an album which I think I had only listened to once since I got it:

Andre Hodeir - Anna Livia Plurabelle (Philips). This is a jazz cantata by Hodeir, based on part of Finnegans Wake by James Joyce. I like much of Hodeir's music, but this piece was so strange that I put it on the shelf after one listening. Well, tonight I loved it. The orchestra includes Jean-Luc Ponty, Michel Portal, Hubert Rostaing, and Pierre Michelot. Joyce's surrealistic words are even odder filtered through the French accents of singers Monique Aldebert and Nicole Croisille. But for whatever reason, I really enjoyed this tonight, and I'm glad I kept the album.

Joe Alexander plays fine on that early 60s date. Wish he would have taken some more risks which would surely have been OK with the rhythm section that was assembled.

Preston Love featuring Shuggie Otis - Cool Ade/Shuggie's Blues (Kent)

Johnny Adams - Reconsider Me/If Could See You One More Time (SSS)

Johnny Adams - South Side of Soul Street/Something Worth Leaving For (SSS)

Johnny Adams - I Live My Whole Life at Night/No Gettin' Over Me (Hep' Me)

Chuck Carbo - Tears, Tears and More Tears/I Shouldn't But I Do (Ace)

Earl King - Those Lonely, Lonely Nights/Baby Get Your Gun (Ace)

Tito Rodriguez - West Side Beat - UA (black label, mono)

Bola Sete - Autentico! - Fantasy (Blue label stereo, red wax, OJC reissue)

Some of the tracks on this Bola Sete album are like a prototype for the stuff Gabor Szabo would do a few years later.

Percy Faith - Black Magic Woman - Columbia

TTK is trying to keep up with the sounds, vibrations and feelings of today. It's important to know what the kids are listening to, to foster mutual understanding between the generations.

There's a really cool tune on here called "Sun King" credited to Lennon and McCartney. I'm assuming this a Beatles tune.
