VariousVerve – The Sound Of America – Singles Collection (5 CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $48.99 69.98
A very fresh look at the music of Verve Records – that legendary jazz imprint that's made wonderful sounds from the late 40s onwards! Verve is well-known as a label for classic jazz albums – work by Stan Getz, Lester Young, Billie Holiday, and many others – but during the company's initial wave of releases, they also issued a fair number of singles, too – offering different mixes and versions of tracks than appeared on the full length records! This sweet 5CD set is a marvelous overview of that era – and is especially strong on music from Verve's big years of the 50s and 60s – a time when the label was really helping shape American musical tastes, and was getting a lot of these singles out there on the charts, on the radios, and in the jukeboxes too. The set features 100 rare singles, served up on five differently-themed CDs – Just Friends (1947 to 1956), Stairway To The Stars (1956/1957), Bossa Nova (1958 to 1963), Goldfinger (1963 to 1965), and Bumpin On Sunset (1965 to 2001). The Stairway To The Stars CD features work from Verve's big wave of vocal recordings in the mid 50s – songs by Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, and others – and Goldfinger has some ultra-cool bits from Verve's mod years – including work by Jimmy Smith, Donald Byrd, Lalo Schifrin, Stan Getz, and Bill Evans. The Bossa Nova material is great, and more than stands for itself – and the Bumpin On Sunset CD features some overlooked gems from the late 60s and early 70s – with really only one later track. 100 songs in all, 5CDs, and a nice booklet with notes and players for each single.

VariousWarner Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
One of the grooviest collections of Burt Bacharach songs we've ever heard – a sweet double-length set that dips deep into the Warner Brothers catalog of the 60s, then moves into later decades for a few choice moments too! Tracks here represent a great range of Warner pop from the time – a bit of jazz, mod instrumentals, soul, girl pop, and more – including some excellent cuts from overseas that fit perfectly in with the American tracks that dominate the set. CD2 moves into some later territory that includes some 70s and 80s takes on Burt's music – showing the ever-growing power of Bacharach, even after his initial burst of songwriting and production. Titles include "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "The Look Of Love" by Anita Kerr Singers, "Cross Town Bus" by Gals & Pals, "And This Is Mine" by Connie Stevens, "You're Following Me" by Caterina Valente, "Promise Her Anything" by Marty Paich, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Baby It's You" by Jeff Phillips, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Non Mi Innamoro Piu" by Johnny Dorelli & Catherine Spaak, "I Wake Up Crying" by Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BAnd, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Siw Malmkvist, "In My Reality" by Natalie Cole, "Alfie" by Everything But The Girl, "Are You There With Another Girl" by Mari Wilson, "Tell It To Your Heart" by Randy Crawford, and "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Linda Ronstadt.

MPS/Motor (Germany), 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very nicely priced compilation of jazzy grooves from the legendary German MPS label! A lot of this stuff has appeared elsewhere – especially on the Talkin' Jazz compilations – but the whole thing looks very groovy, and the price is nice enough that you can probably afford to get the comp, even if you have a number of tracks already. Titles include "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Sunshine Of Your Love" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Big Schlepp" by Dave Pike, "Jive Samba" by Peter Herbholzheimer, "Love & Happiness" by Ernest Ranglin, "Take Off Your Clothes To Feel The Setting Sun" by Wolfgang Dauner, "See You Later" by Joanne Grauer, "Follow Me" by Dieter Reith, and lots lots more!

Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The latest volume in one of our favorite series of soul jazz tracks! This one opens the scope way past previous volumes, and features a rollicking party of tasty little groovers – most of them with a raw, uptempo, funky 45 jukebox kind of feel! Tracks are from the Chess, Fantasy, Jewel, and Brunswick catalogs – with many rare numbers like "Fever" by Sharon Cash, "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Ain't There Something That Money Can't Buy" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Hush" by Woody Herman, "Another Plan For School Mix Up" by The Cals, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Karen Hernandez, "Caesar's Pad" by Googie Rene, "The Point" by Aaron (Chico) Bailey & The Family Affair Band, "I Got To See My Baby" by Lee Jones & The Unforgotten Two, and "Ain't It A Groove" by Dave Hamilton. 23 cuts in all – and very very groovy!
