David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy Gatefold .... $22.99 24.98
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Joe Locke with OrchestraWish Upon A Star ... CD
Motema, 2012. New Copy .... $11.99 14.99
A great setting for the vibes of Joe Locke – set amidst the larger sounds of the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra – whose soft flourishes prove to be a perfect backdrop for Joe's rich colors and tones! The format is wonderful – an approach that's hardly done this well with other vibist, save for maybe a rare few Bobby Hutcherson dates in the 70s – and Locke's working with a core quartet amidst the larger orchestra, which ensures that there's some forward motion in the rhythms, even amidst the lofty strings. Titles include "Available In Blue", "Sword Of Whispers", "Where Is Love", "Moon River", and "The Moon For Her". CD

Jim SnideroSan Juan ... CD
Red (Italy), 1994. New Copy .... $15.99 18.99
Sublime sounds from the Jim Snidero group – a combo that flows wonderfully together as a unit, then breaks out as a strong showcase for each individual voice as well! Jim's alto is tied up tightly with the trumpet of Tim Hagans in the frontline – propelled by Kevin Hayes' dynamic piano, and the bass of Dennis Irwin and drums of Billy Hart – and the record's got a special added bonus in the presence of Steve Nelson on vibes on the first half of the set – a player who really deepens and darkens the colors of the record nicely! Although all players were recording in different scenarios at the time, this unit really stands as some of the best work from this period – and shows that special something extra you'll get from Red Records dates – an inexplicable quality that often has the musicians really pushing past the usual. Titles include "The Web", "San Juan", "Mystery", "Forward Motion", "La Mesha", and "In A Daze". CD

Dave BrubeckAngel Eyes ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $13.99
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and this subtle sense of emotion is a perfect foil for the understated talents of Paul Desmond's alto work on the set. Brubeck himself is nice too – less trick-oriented than usual, in a way that lets us focus on the colors of his tone – and drummer Joe Morello and bassist Eugene Wright are in top form, as usual. Titles include "Violets For Your Furs", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "Will You Still Be Mine", and "Everything Happens To Me". CD

Terry CallierI Just Can't Help Myself ... CD
Cadet (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $13.99
One of the best albums that Terry Callier ever recorded – and a masterpiece of the baroque soul crossover style that was going down at the Chess/Cadet label at the time! Terry's own folksy singing and playing would be more than enough to make this record great – but it's given an amazing edge by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney, who create these floating pillows of sound and washes of jazzy colors that fit Terry's moods perfectly, and really expand the emotional intensity of the songs. At the time of this release, the Chess empire was falling apart – but the forces that be put a great last push into the record, and Terry's backed by superb work from Chicago studio giants like Phil Upchurch, Don Myrick, Art Hoyle, Bobby Christian, Cleveland Eaton, Louis Satterfield, and Evans and Stepney themselves! Every track is a wonder, and titles include "Alley-Wind Song" , "Can't Catch the Trane", "Bowlin' Green", and "Until Tomorrow". CD

Larry GelbAmerica Is Free ... CD
I Am, 2008. New Copy .... $13.99
Pianist Larry Gelb works here with some great reed lines from Dick Oatts – a player who really gets a lot of room to open up and inflect the tunes with all these great colors and emotions – sounds that are especially fresh, given that all the tracks are new originals written by Gelb! Larry's own piano work is plenty nice – with a subtle sense of feeling that really illuminates the tunes right from the start – and Oatts plays flute, tenor, alto, and soprano sax. Even the rhythm section is pretty compelling – with Cameron Brown on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "Dove", "Ten Khetwadi Lane", "The World Of A Dream", "Motian Picture", and "Her First Valentine".

Leroy HutsonHutson ... CD
Curtom/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy .... $16.99
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson! The whole thing's a smooth soul masterpiece beyond compare – a stunning blend of great songwriting, sexy vocals, and buttery production that rank it up there with the best work of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. Leroy's got a voice that's both warm and mellow, yet incredibly honest at the same time – and the songs on the record show a range of colors and emotions that perfectly fit his unique style. Features mellow "Cool Out", the funky "Lucky Fellow", the sweet "All Because Of You", and the sublime cuts "It's Different" and "Can't Stay Away". The whole thing's great – and is one of the crowning achievements of the Chicago soul scene! CD

Claudette SoaresClaudette Soares (1967) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1967. New Copy .... $32.99
Beautiful early work from Claudette Soares – a really lovely album of bossa-styled material, but sung with a slightly deeper edge too! The arrangements are wonderful – uncredited on the cover, but really a masterpiece in understatement – that carefully balanced mix of emotion and sadness with jazzier currents, which graced some of the best Brazilian records of this type from the time! Soares sometimes sings with a fuller feeling, but often keeps things in this well-pitched manner that really suits the careful instrumentation and all of its wonderful dark tones and colors. Titles include "Vim", "A Noite Da Ilusao", "Balada Do Tempo E Da Vida", "Nos", "Rosa Dos Ventos", and "Tao Doce Que E Sal". CD

David WeissEndangered Species – The Music Of Wayne Shorter Live ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99 14.98
A beautiful tribute to the compositional genius of Wayne Shorter – but served up at a level that goes way beyond Shorter's original vision for his music! Trumpeter David Weiss always does a great job of re-exploring the best modern sounds of the 60s – and here, he arranges some key Shorter tunes for a largeish ensemble – a great group that features his own horn in the lead, plus alto from Tim Green, tenor and soprano from Marcus Strickland, tenor from Ravi Coltrane, trumpet from Jeremy Pelt, trombone from Steve Davis, and piano from Geri Allen! Other players in the lineup are great, too – and the set's got this really rich feel – unlocking all the colors and emotions of the compositions with the ensemble, yet still allowing plenty of room for a solo voice too. Titles include "Eva", "Mr Jin", "Fall", "Nellie Bly", and "Prometheus Unbound" – plus David's own "The Turning Gate". CD

James MoodyHey It's James Moody ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
A magnificent little album – one of James Moody's first collaborations with arranger Tom McIntosh – one of the most sensitive jazz voices of his time. McIntosh works in a world of many tones and colors – and he really pushes Moody past straighter solo approaches, into a mode where he's shaping sound into complex emotion – hitting a level of soulfulness that might never been expected in earlier years! Moody plays both tenor and flute on the session, and rhythm is by a piano-less trio that features John Gray on guitar, Eldee Young on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums. And if that's not enough, Eddie Jefferson joins in on vocals on 2 tracks – lending his own lyrics to Moody's great original "Last Train From Overbrook", and doing a great reading of "Summertime". Other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Indian Summer", "Please Say Yes", and "Blue Jubilee". LP, Vinyl record album

New Charles MingusMingus Ah Um ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection! This 1959 gem was recorded by Mingus at a key point in his career – when he was rising from the jazz underground into the ranks of America's elite jazzmen, penning some of the most challenging work of his career, and working with incredible younger players that interpreted his work with a great deal of fire! The tracks are a bit more tightly arranged than work on some of Mingus' previous work for labels like Atlantic and Bethlehem, but that also gives them a razor-sharp emotional edge that's carried off perfectly by players who include John Handy and Shafi Hadi on alto saxes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Willie Dennis and Jimmy Knepper on trombones, Horace Parlan on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The album is filled with key Mingus classics – like "Better Git It In Your Soul", "Boogie Stop Shuffle", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", and "Fables of Faubus" – plus "Self Portrait In Three Colors", "Open Letter To Duke", and "Bird Call".

New Patty DukePatty Duke Sings Songs From Valley Of The Dolls/Sings Folk Songs (with bonus track) ... CD
United Artists/Real Gone, 1967/1968. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A pair of Patty Duke albums from the late 60s – one of them previously unreleased! First up is Patty Duke Sings Songs From Valley Of The Dolls – a record that definitely draws on the drama of her Neely O'Hara role in the film of the same name – with tunes that have a bit more of an emotive punch than Duke used in previous years. These emotions are sometimes a bit overblown, but that's part of the appeal – as with her work in the film – and arrangements are by Arnold Goland and Hutch Davie – on titles that include "Come Live With Me", "Give A Little More", "Valley Of The Dolls", "I'll Plant My Own Tree", and "Learn To Live With Your Heartache". The second half of the album features the previously unreleased Patty Duke Sings Folk Songs/Time To Move On – an unusual record that has Duke taking on some of the crossover folk sounds of the 60s – but still in a way that's very much in her usual poppy bag. Ernie Sheldon produced, and also wrote a good number of tracks too – originals mixed in with more familiar and traditional titles that come off surprisingly well – thanks partly to the gentler folksy format, which never strains Patty's vocals too much. Titles include "The Housewife's Lament", "Colors", "The Cruel War", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Time To Move On", and "And We Were Strangers". Also features the unreleased single "I Want Your Love".
