New Discounts For December at HBDirect!

HBDirect's newest jazz sale is in full swing! From the big names of Blue Note and the rarities of Dutton to the fascinating compilations of Putumayo, we're discounting the complete catalogs of five labels for the month of December. As always, we invite you to explore a label by clicking any logo in this newsletter.

Christmas With Sinatra & Friends "There are any number of Frank Sinatra Christmas albums in circulation, but Christmas with Sinatra and Friends ranks among the best... songs by Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, Ray Charles & Betty Carter, and Tony Bennett with Bill Evans [make] an even dozen holiday treats. This is a Christmas album from a different era. It is simple and has no gimmicks. The focus is always on the vocals and songs." -blogcritics.org
New From Concord Music
Ray Charles: The Spirit Of Christmas
Jon Irabagon: The Observer
Ramsey Lewis: Songs From The Heart

Norah Jones The Fall "Jones ties up loose ends, unafraid to sound smooth or sultry, letting in just enough dissonance and discord to give this dimension, creating a subtle but rather extraordinary low-key record that functions as a piece of mood music but lingers longer, thanks to its finely crafted songs." -AMG
New on Blue Note!
Sean Chambers: Ten Til Midnight
Willie Nelson: American Classic
Robert Glasper: Double Booked

The Power of Two Feinstein Jackson Michael Feinstein, 5 time Grammy Award nominee, platinum selling singer/pianist & Cheyenne Jackson, Broadway star of Xanadu, All Shook Up and current revival of Finian's Rainbow, have released their first CD together.
