Stanley Turrentine, “Never Let Me Go,” Blue Note Records. Talk about your swingin’, groovin’ jazz! Turrentine, accompanied by the great Shirley Scott on organ, lets loose with some strong riff-laden tunes. The emphasis is on groove, but melody isn’t exactly ignored, either. This is just a rock-solid organ/sax combo record.

Sarah Vaughan, “Sarah Vaughan,” Verve Records. This is a lovely reissue of a 1954 album featuring a great band including Clifford Brown on trumpet, Herbie Mann on flute, and Roy Haynes on drums. Vaughan was technically astounding, and emotionally beautiful. This is as good an example of her art as I’ve heard.

Pulp, “We Love Life,” Rough Trade Records. A second listen to this record finds me liking it more and more. Jarvis Cocker has come up with a bunch of really ambitious, well-crafted pop songs. The band supports him ably, winding the arrangements up and down as necessary to produce some really powerful effects. Some of the credit probably goes to producer Scott Walker, who knows a thing or two about dynamics in pop music.
