New Dave Baby CortezDave Baby Cortez In Orbit ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoking Hammond work from the young Dave Cortez – sounding grittier here than on some of his other albums of the time – less pop, and almost with a soul jazz vibe overall – especially given some of his snakey solos! The record may be the closest that Cortez ever came to sounding like Jimmy McGriff – and the backings are tight and soulful, very similar to McGriff at Sue Records – handled by Henry Grover, who also produced. There's an uncredited tenor player on the record who's mighty nice – and a few cuts feature cool female backing vocals – and titles include "Belly Rub (parts 1 & 2)", "In Orbit", "Countdown (parts 1 & 2)", "Sticks & Stones", and "Peg Leg".

New Dave Baby CortezRinky-Dink ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's nothing Rinky Dink about this classic album from Dave Baby Cortez – as the set's heavy on Hammond organ grooves, and was definitely a key part of the instrument's introduction to soul music in the 60s! The style is rooted in jazz use of the Hammond, but served up with a tighter, less solo-based mode that's more soul instrumental overall – one that has Cortez really stepping out strongly on his instrument, with a range of modes that run from soulful stepping to some grittier, bluesier cuts that reflect the album's placement on the Chess label. Titles include the big hit "Rinky Dink" – plus "Jammin (parts 1 & 2)", "Wobble (parts 1 & 2)", "Skins & Sounds", "Mr. Gee", "Davy's Shuffle", "Lost Love", "Little Paris Melody", and "Getting Right".

VariousSongs For A Central Park Picnic – Presented By Saint Etienne ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
A warm batch of sunny songcraft, primarily from the 60s – from groovy small combo jazz, to good natured, string-laden vocal tunes, post doo wop group sounds, groovy organ soul, soundtracky instrumentals and beyod – selected by Saint Etienne! It's clear from their own recorded output that Saint Etienne always had terrific ears for breezy, diversely swinging 60s sounds – and they demonstrate that nicely here on a 25 track set compilation – with tunes by Vince Guaraldi, Dave Baby Cortez, The Paris Sisters, Jerry Butler, Connie Francis, Lalo Schifrin and many more! Includes "Be Sure My Love" by Teddy Randazzo, "Be Bom" by Sammy Davis Jr, "Yes I Love You" by The Paris Sisters, "Cha Cha Charming" by Ellie Gaye, "Our Winter Love" by Bill Pursell, "Stranger On The Shore" by The Drifters, "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise" by Vince Guaraldi, "Moon River" by Kerry Butler and more.
