Monday Listening

Nara Leao - Nara '67 (El) a primary female figure in the early Bossa movement, this is all great material from before Leao hooked up with the Tropicalistas and made a fabulous album with Rogerio Duprat.
Sonny Clark Trio (Blue Note) "Dial S for Sonny" is one of my favorite piano jazz records and this trio record from 1957 with Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones is pretty awesome as well.
Various - Funk Soul Sisters (Ace) nice comp of 60's & 70's funk and soul released a couple years back featuring Fontella Bass (who was married to Lester Bowie & also recorded with the Art Ensemble of Chicago), Millie Jackson, and the strong & minimal "Why I Sing the Blues" by Betty Barney with the Pazant Bros.
