JULIE DRISCOLL & BRIAN AUGER Open. Rare 1967 UK 10-track stereo vinyl LP, a great record that managed to join the dots between Mod R&B, Folk & Pop, including their interpretations of Donovan’s Season Of The Witch and Lowell Fulson’s Tramp, superb bluesy Hammond organ licks married to Driscoll’s hippie Dusty Springfield-esque vocals. The matt picture sleeve has pinched spine ends and remains in excellent condition with very little shelfwear to the edges & just a hint of ringwear, whilst the vinyl appears in fantastic barely played condition.

NINA SIMONE Nina Simone And Her Friends An Intimate Variety Of Vocal Charm. 1959 USA 12-track high fidelity vinyl LP on the red & silver Bethlehem label, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve has just a 1" seam split to the bottom at the opening edge and shows little wear, with the front cover art gloriously clear and the reverse with just a few light spots of discolouration. The vinyl has a few light cosmetic surface marks with a very small area of paper loss at the spindle hole, whilst the labels shows little sign of spindle wear indicating minimal play – a stunning copy.

Shirley Horn ‎– Softly
ORG Music ‎– ORGM-1030
Released: 2018

Beautiful recording, available on vinyl for the first time.  Chill cocktail jazz in a trio setting of bass and drums, with Shirley Horn cooing over top of her delicate piano playing.  You can practically envision the cigarette smoke and martini glasses as you unwind to the notes floating in your listening space.  Easy recommend, for fans of laid back lounge jazz.




Les Paul And His Trio ‎– After You’ve Gone
Audiophile Records ‎– ORGM-1031, ORG Music ‎– ORGM-1031
2 × LP, Remastered, Mono
Released: 09 Nov 2018

This is as clean as I’ve ever heard Les Paul recordings sound.  A superb job was done on the mastering, especially given the age of these recordings are from the 20s-40s.  Fans of early guitar jazz will find plenty to love here, excellent 2 lp comp for beginners and afficionados.

Hank Jones Trio ‎– Arigato
ORG Music ‎– ORGM-2109
Released: 1977 (2018 Reissue)

Wow.  I listened to this whole record believing it was recorded during the jazz heyday of the 50’s/60’s.  Most 70’s jazz recordings I’ve heard contain audible cues which give the decade away.  A bit of prog, a smidge of funk, uniquely 70’s production values.
Not here.  Arigato reveals the warm, present-sounding acoustic interplay between 3 musicians steeped in the grand tradition of the classic piano/bass/drum combo.  Hank Jones piano playing has a relaxed, breezy quality to it.  The keys shift effortlessly between an airy West Coast vibe to a style not dissimilar to Vince Guaraldi’s.  The keys are snowflakes, you can see the Peanuts gang skating.  The bass playing is heard rather prominently, providing a thick backdrop upon which the piano dances.  The drums serve as accent, brushes provide the ice on which the others skate.
Very, very cool piece of jazz.
