New John BarryLounge Legends ... CD
Universal (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Forget James Bond. Forget EMI. This set shows later work from John Barry's career – much hipper and very different than the more popular soundtracks that you probably know already! The package was put together by the super-hip folks at Universal Music Germany – and it contains tracks from Barry scores for some of the more obscure films of his career, matched with a few other odd instrumental tunes, and even a few rare vocal numbers that will take you way past Shirley Bassey! There's a great mix of moody electric instrumentals, dark Morricone-like numbers, groovy breezy tunes, and strong pop songs – and titles include "The Good Times Are Coming" (with vocals by Mama Cass), "This Way Mary" (vocals by Scott Walker), "Theme From Ipcress Files", "Play It Again", "Orson Wells' Great Mysteries", "Boom", "Walkabout", "The Adventurer", "Billy, "We Have All The Time In The World", and "Midnight Cowboy".

New Markko Polo AdventurersOrienta ... LP
RCA, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost lounge gem from the RCA catalog – with a dreamy exotica feel that's right up there with the best of the bachelor pad era! Gerald Fried arranged and conducted this ersatz studio group, and his overall approach has lots of sweeping woodwinds and percussion, similar to the great Les Baxter work on Capitol during the same time. The tracks have a pronounced Eastern feel – as you'd guess by titles like "Yokahama Ferryboat", "Rain In Rangoon", "Madam Sloe Gin's", "Night Of The Tiger", and "Nagasaki". Great "Eastern" cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Living Stereo pressing!)

New Jack MarshallSoundsville – Swinging Sketches By Jack Marshall & His Music ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great arranger in one of his grooviest settings – a very jazzy album that features trombone from Milt Bernhart and Bob Enevoldsen, guitar from Barney Kessel, percussion from Larry Bunker, drums from Shelly Manne, and trumpe from Don Fagerquist! Marshall leads and whistles – in a cool jazzy style – and tracks include "Whistlin' Blues", "Should I", and "Hot Sombrero". LP, Vinyl record album
(A beautiful stereo pressing!)

New VariousReturn To Paradise – A History Of Exotica ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent summation of the exotica sound of the 50s – that wonderful period when mood music started getting really interesting – thanks to an infusion of island-inspired sounds in the postwar years! The music here represents the pinnacle of 50s exotica – amazing records by some of the bigger names in the genre, mixed with some lesser-known gems that make the collection way more interesting than some of the more easily-done exotica sets on the market. There's plenty of weird rhythms, odd percussion, unusual sounds, and dreamy melodies – and titles include "Chant Of The Moon" by Robert Drasnin, "Lotus Land" by Gene Rains, "Summer Storm" by John McFarland, "Paradise" by Paul Conrad, "Kashmiri Love Song" by Korla Pandit, "Coronation" by Martin Denny, "Mwanza Market Place" by Tak Shindo, "Mountain High Valley Low" by The Markko Polo Adventurers, "Strange Echoes" by Frank Hunter, and "Jungle Flute" by Xavier Cugat.

New Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba".
