New Les McCannHustle To Survive ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Les McCann sings on this set of short soul tracks with production by Bert DeCoteaux. As you may know, Les' voice is more about style than quality, but it sounds pretty groovy on a couple of the tracks here. He also plays electric piano on a number of cuts, including "Us" and "Butterflies". Other tracks include "Well, Cuss My Daddy", "Why Is Now", and "Let Your Learning Be Your Eyes".

New Bruno NicolaiCase Of The Bloody Iris (aka Perche Quelle Strane Gocce Di Sangue Sul Corpo Di Jennifer) (10" vinyl pressing) ... LP
Gemelli/Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – a wonderful array of lightly groovy tunes that's as fantastic as any of the Mondo Morricone work from the same time! The main theme of the film has a catchy La Donna Invisible sort of feel – building on waves of sound with piano over orchestrations, skipping along to an altered bossa beat – showing up in a number of different variants throughout the score. Other tracks are darker and moodier, but really vary things up to fit the moods of the scene – using Morricone-styled bits of harpsichord, violin, or strings to come up with some incredible sounds – to a point when the rhythms get especially deep near the end. Features liner notes from Andy Votel – a good point of reference for the music! Titles include "Ambush", "Killer's Violin", "Love Scene", "Pursuit", "Living Nightmare", and "Jennifer's Recall". Also features two bonus alternates of "Pursuit". LP, Vinyl record album

New Shirley ScottSomething ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy groovy electric set from Hammond giant Shirley Scott – a set that really kicks things up in the rhythm department, in a way ties the album as much to Atlantic Records soul of the 60s as it does to some of Scott's earlier work for Prestige! There's a great pulse at the bottom of the tunes – thanks to guitar work from Billy Butler and Eric Gale, and some sweet electric bass from Chuck Rainey – working here in the rhythm section with Jimmy Johnson on drums and Ralph MacDonald on congas. The combination of all these great players on one date really makes things cook – and Shirley's organ sounds groovier than ever – so much so, she also seems free to try out a few sounds here on piano and ondoline as well. Things take on a nicely trippy feel at times, and a funky groove at others – and titles include "I Want You Back", "Because", "Someday We'll Be Together", and "Can I Change My Mind". CD

New Peter Thomas Sound OrchestraChariots Of The Gods? ... LP
Polydor, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little soundtrack from German maestro Peter Thomas – even weirder and more electric than some of his famous 60s recordings! Thomas scored the music for a spooky 70s film about the possibility of aliens on earth – and did so with a bit more tension than some of his other records – mixing in some dark tones, weird sounds, and other odd elements amidst some more familiar space age-styled themes. Instrumentation often mixes conventional orchestrations with electronics and offbeat percussion – the latter of which brings an earthy, organic undercurrent that you might not expect, and which really sets the record apart from anything else at the time. A few key cuts have the trademark groovy feel you'd expect from Thomas – including the classic "Stars & Rockets" – and other titles include "Reminiscences Of The Future", "Popular Myth & The Destruction Of Sodom", "The Red Sea", "Gods From Strange Planets", "Returning To The Stars", "Rocket Science", and "Easter Island".

New VariousHe & She – 22 Far Out Pop Psych Duos From The Late 60s ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy tunes compiled by the folks who brought us the Soft Sounds For Gentle People compilations of lost late 60s pop psychedelia! He & She takes a novel approach and digs up the deepest nuggets by guy-girl combos – full of deep sinking hooks, bright counterpart harmonies, and trippy lyricism – most done in a buzzing Cali sunshine sound! It's full of great tunes by seldom heard groups – with a big sunshine sound! 22 tracks in all: "Hippy Dippy Funky Monkey Double Bubble Sitar Man" by The Hubbels, "Up Here" by Tony and Siegrid, "Time" by Kathy And Larry, "Circus" by Friend And Lover, "Taxicab" by Bunky And Jake, "Big Dsaddy Blues" by St George And Tana, "Sheridan Square" by Smokey And His Sister, "Rock N Roll Gypsies" by Gypsy Trip and more!

New VariousSoft Sounds For Gentle People Vol 5 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Far out harmonies and psyche pop from the mid-to-late 60s – and another groovy batch of obscurites from the Cali scene and beyond in the Soft Sounds For Gentle People series from Pet Records! The series has only gotten deeper and groovier since the first one came out – many singles from groups that were recording for the major labels at the time, but the majority of whom are fresh discoveries to us – and if labels like Columbia, Warner Bros and Capital provided the opportunity for richer sounds and production, it's used to shoot the grooves even further out, without comprising the catchy grooves and sweetly soaring male and female harmonies. Possibly the best entry yet! 21 tracks in all: Titles include "Take A Bus" by Stix & Stonz, "Nothing Sacred" by The Johnnys, "Look At The Sun" by Mouse, "Hello" by Things To Come, "Kill The Cobra" by Bentley Road, "It's A Groovy World" by The Lollipop Fantasy, "Looking Down" by 1st Century, "Wispy Paisley Skies" by Fraternity Of Man and more.

Disposable (UK), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stellar sampler of atmospheric psyche funk instrumental genius in the modern sound library Disposable Music subscription series – featuring instrumentals from Vampires Of Dartmore on one side credited to the Crime Sound Orchestra – and Ackermann/Thusek's Science Fiction Dance Party on the other! The Vampire side features the tripped out funky basslines, ominous yet groovy effects, heavy drums and pulp funk instrumental grooves straight from Dracula's cabinet!

New Liz DamonLiz Damon's Orient Express ... CD
Rev-Ola/White Whale (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very sweet, and very groovy work from Liz Damon's Orient Express – a fab Hawaiian combo with a really great sound! The group's music is sort of a mix of lounge jazz, bossa grooving, and the kind of sweet late 60s easy touches that were showing up in Brit sound library music. Liz handles lead vocals on most of the tracks with a voice that sounds like it drifted right out of Brasil 66 – and a number of other cuts have the guys in the band backing her up with some great soft rock harmonies! Titles include "1900 Yesterday", "You Make Me Feel Like Someone", "Bring Me Sunshine", "You're Falling In Love", "That Same Old Feeling", and "Close To You". CD reissue also features 5 bonus tracks – including "Wave", "Heaven In My Heart", and "Quando Quando Quando". CD

New Clare FischerExtension (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/International Phonograph, 1963. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An early moment of genius from the young Clare Fischer – one of his first sets for a larger ensemble, and the start of years of great work to come! Previous Pacific Jazz sessions featured Fischer in a piano trio – but this album lets Clare loose on a host of his own inventive arrangements – a set of charts and compositions that easily move between the modern and the groovy – sometimes using offbeat tones and sounds that rival the best that Ellington or Gil Evans had to offer – other times coming across with this fluidity that's a perfect summation of the way that Fischer pulled together all of the California cool of the 50s, and managed to come up with something completely fresh for the 60s! The modern edges will come as a real surprise to those who only know Fischer's more easygoing work – and in addition to Clare's own work on piano and organ, the record also features Jerry Coker on tenor, Gary Foster on tenor and clarinet, Jack Nimitz on bass clarinet and baritone, Sam Most and John Lowe on flutes, and Don Shelton on alto – all working with reed interplay that's completely sublime. Titles include "Bittersweet", "Igor", "Canto Africano", "Extension", "Passacaglia", and "Ornithardy". CD

New Full Moon EnsembleCrowded With Loneliness (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
AKT/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare spiritual jazz session from the Full Moon Ensemble – a very groovy French group headed up by drummer Claude Delcloo – who was better known for his avant jazz work on sides for the BYG/Actuel series of albums! This time around, Delcloo is working in much trippier territory – a style that still shows some of the freedoms of the post-68 generation of French jazz, but which also takes on some strong spiritual tones too – mixing spoken passages with rich organic sounds on percussion – and these bold, snaking lines on Fender Rhodes and guitar that really help hold the whole thing together! The record works as one long suite on side one, and continues that groove on side two – and although the band's jamming great in the studio, there's still a sense of structure and purpose that really drives the music. In addition to Delcloo on drums, the group also features Jeff Sicard on alto and tenor, Gerard Coppere on tenor and soprano sax, Mratine Tourreil on Rhodes, and Joseph Dejean on guitar – and the vocals bits are by the enigmatic "Sarah". Titles include the side a suite "Tribute To Bob Kaufman" – plus "101 W 85th Street" and "King Kong". CD

New Ennio MorriconeL'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. The whole thing's a work of incredibly subtle beauty, with a style and feeling that will seep into your brain and haunt you for days. If you've cut your teeth getting into Italian soundtracks through the "Easy" series – check this one out, and move up to a more sophisticated (yet still pretty darn groovy) level. Titles include "Piume De Cristallo", "Corsa Sui Tetti", "Se Sei Stonato", "Violenza Inattesa", "Silenzio Nel Caos", and "Svolta Drammatica". LP, Vinyl record album

New Minoru Muraoka & Tadao SawaiMandom – Syakuhachi & Koto Otoko No Sekai (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Think (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy sounds from the 60s – a hip blend of jazz and traditional Japanese instrumentation – lightly grooving rhythms at the bottom, topped with some totally sweet koto and shakuhachi! The light reedwork is perfect for the bossa style of the tunes – and there's definitely a core influence from American and European groovy jazz of the time, but the end result is uniquely Japanese – given the use of the local instruments! Production is beautiful, too – pillowy sound that reminds us of the earliest years of CTI, when they were recording at A&M – and in a way, the album's just the sort of project they might have pursued back in those days. Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Mandom", "Manha De Carnaval", "Fool On The Hill", "Mediation", "Man & A Woman", and "Mr Monday". CD

New Isao SuzukiAko's Dream (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the wonderfully creative 70s sets from Japanese stringman Isao Suzuki – an artist who also plays bass, but who works here on jazz cello – for a very unusual approach! The set has Suzuki's work on the light strings matched in a combo with lead guitar from Kazumi Watanabe – who's nicely restrained here, and falls in with Isao's strings at a level that's quite different than his own material of the time. Watanabe's lead is augmented by further rhythm guitar work by Kazumasa Akiyama, and the resulting mix of stringed instruments creates a sound that sounds pretty darn groovy in some parts – lightly leaping along with some Fender Rhodes from Tsuyoshi Yamamoto. The best track is the album's long funky remake of "Feel Like Making Love", which begins with a spacey intro, then leaps into an almost-breakbeat reading of the track that features some great electric piano work in a classic MPS mode. Other tracks include "Ako's Dream", "Isao Family", and "Seven Come Eleven". CD

New Caetano VelosoCaetano Veloso (1967) (180 gram LP with bonus CD) ... LP
Philips/Lilith (Italy), 1967. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on contemporaneous records by Gal Costa or Os Mutantes – served up with similar wit, wisdom, and charm! Caetano's vocals are amazing throughout – filled with raspy power that goes beyond the barriers of language – and the production has loads of surprising elements tripping through the mix – some rootsy, some slightly orchestrated – but with a softer approach that resonates strongly with more psychedelic use of organ and guitar. The album's as powerful today as it was decades ago – an essential recording that holds up beautifully year after year! The kickoff track is "Tropicalia" (surprisingly enough!), and the album is a non-stop ride through gems like "Alegria, Alegria", "Onde Andaras", "Paisagem Util", "Ave Maria", and the groovy "Soy Loco Por Ti America", written by Gilberto Gil.

BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A completely sublime collection of spiritual jazz numbers from the 70s – put together by the legendary Kev Beadle, one of the first cats to spin the music with Gilles Peterson on the UK scene! The package is a great mix of essentials from years back, plus some under-discovered nuggets from the American underground – all with a nice emphasis on the grooves and rhythms – in a way that you might have heard back at Dingwalls on a Sunday afternoon! The set's a great reminder that music can be progressive and groovy at the same time – and the whole thing's overflowing with righteous treasures. Vinyl version features some exclusive tracks not on the CD – "Safari" by Frank Walton, "Padali" by Chuck Flores, and "I See Chano Pozo" by Jayne Cortez & The Firespitters – plus "In Every Way" by Reverie, "Open Your Mind" by Southern Energy Ensemble, "Brotherhood" by Kamal Abdul Alim, and "Freedom Road" by The Pharoahs.

A mid 60s set from Birgit Lystager – the Danish beauty and groovy sunshine pop singer – on a set of tunes here that are nearly as alluring as the album cover! There's a touch of the grand, yet artfully sweeping arrangements of here later work, but there's something of a more intimate approach on some numbers. Beautiful stuff, and 60s sounds that should have been better known around the world! Titles include "I'm Waiting For A Bus", "Fingertips", "You Call This A Merry-Go-Round", "Ready To Meet You", "Choosing Words", "I'm Nothing But A Girl" and more. CD

New Johnny Mann SingersSixties Mann ... CD
El (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime vocal chorus work from 60s arranger Johnny Mann – leader of the Johnny Mann Singers, a group who took the hokier sounds of earlier eras and gave them a nice Sunshiney twist! Mann's format here is one used by The Ray Charles Singers and a variety of other successful male/female pop vocal ensembles of earlier years – but the overall feel of the set is much more mod and 60s swinging, not just in the choice of songs (which is great), but also in the nicely punctuated backings, which help take the once-sleepy style into a livelier mode that's got plenty of groovy appeal! CD features 23 tracks pulled from Johnny's late 60s Liberty recordings – including "Mrs Robinson", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Call Me", "Snow", "To Sir With Love", "Up Up & Away", "Cherish", "Windy", "What The World Needs Now", "Taste Of Honey", and "The Worst That Could Happen".

New Paul MauriatMore Mauriat/Prestige De Paris ... CD
Philips/Vocalion (UK), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two groovy sets from Paul Mauriat – both recorded in the magic year of 1966! More Mauriat really has Paul opening up with some hipper 60s sounds than usual – taking on a whole bunch of American pop tunes of the time, and retuning a French orchestral approach towards leaner, meaner modes – almost a soulful strings sort of vibe at times – although at others, definitely scored by Mauriat with the kind of French soundtrack styles we love in his music – especially in his great use of electric harpsichord on many of the tunes! Titles include "Bang Bang", "Black Is Black", "Sunny", "Guantanamera", "Lara's Theme", and "Reach Out I'll Be There". Prestige De Paris returns Mauriat to the songs of his homeland – classic French tunes from the more romantic previous generation – often done here with full strings and a relatively florid approach that's a bit different than some or Paul's worldwide hits. Titles include "Sous Le Ponts De Paris", "La Mer", "Moulin Rouge", "Les Feuilles Mortes", "La Seine", and "Fascination". CD

Tracks are handled in a simple soul jazz mode that's plenty pleasing and very consistent throughout – and titles include "Watermelon Man", "Sabya", "East Of Nowhere", "It Had Better Be Tonight", "Loose Walk", and "Feeling Good".

New Brother John RydgrenSilhouette Segments/Cantana For New Life/Worlds Of Youth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Wild, psychedelic era material from the very hip Lutheran pastor Brother John Rydgren! He sports a smoky voice and a poetic, playful, almost comedic spoken word style – in a way that's very much reminiscent of Ken Nordine – as if Ken was a groovy Christian poet! The sound is fuzzy, tripped out psychedelic pop – and his mission seems to be to satirize the sounds and styles of the time as much as it is to spread the Good Word – but at the same time, he's fully embracing the psychedelic sounds! It's almost entirely spoken word on the vocal front – with some oddball choir backdrops and other, often female voices floating in and out from time to time – and pretty diverse instrumentation that often feels like he's vocalizing over some psych funk sound library grooves! Also like our man Nordine, Brother John was a radio personality – but he released some incredibly rare LPs – with '68's Silhouette Segments, '67's Cantata Of New Life and '66's World Of Youth anthologized here by Omni – along with some additional material and a nice little booklet. Incredibly cool stuff! Includes "Music To Watch Girls By", "The Happening", "An Offering Of Music", "Butterfly", "Great To Build Something", "The Air Terminal", the nearly half hour "Cantata Of New Life", "News (The Kite And The News)", "Forgiveness (The Boy Looking Natural)", "Baptism (Come To War)", "Martyrs" and more.

Distortions, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare garage from The Skeptics – a mid 60s combo from Oklahoma who cut some mighty groovy sounds! The set's pulled together from the group's rare singles, but it's got a quality to rival some of the more polished work from the LA scene of the time – a jangly vibe that would have been perfect right on the Sunset Strip, where the group's guitars and slightly offbeat vocals would have been right at home! There's a bit of harmonica in the mix at times, which helps underscore some of The Skeptics' darker intentions – and titles include "Stripes", "A Certain Kind Of Girl", "She's A Gas", "East Side Tenement House", "Ride Child", and "It's A New Thing To Me".

New South Central Avenue Municipal Blues BandSoul Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP
Bluesway/ABC, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Forget the "blues" in the title – because this is funky jazz from LA! The record was one of many in the "Bonnie & Clyde" subgenre of the late 60s, released to cash in on either the fame of the movie or the single "Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde" – and like so many of those records, this one has nothing to do at all with the movie. Instead, the "blues band" is a collection of great LA soul jazzers – like Joe Sample, Bobby Bryant, Wayne Henderson, Artie Butler, and Paul Humphrey – grooving away in a style that sounds like some of the excellent Jazz Crusaders side projects from the late 60s on World Pacific. The band's got a pretty full sound, and although some tracks are trying for an older jazz sound that gets a bit bluesy at times – there's also some killer funky numbers written by Artie Butler with that groovy funky sound that he brought to his best soundtrack and funk work at the time. Arthur Adams gets in plenty of mean guitar licks – and titles include "How's Your Clyde?", "Bowl Of Soul", "Soul Of Bonnie & Clyde", "Blues For Bonnie & Clyde", and "South Central Ave Municipal Blues Band".

New Cal TjaderSolar Heat (plus Cal Tjader Plugs In) ... CD
HDJ (Germany), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Cal Tjader's best albums eve – Solar Heat – a sweetly electric side that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more – and gives the whole thing a really groovy sound! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", and "Ode to Billy Joe". As a bonus, the first part of this CD edition includes the beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – Cal Tjader Plugs In – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s – a soaring, spacious sound that comes from the interplay between Cal's ringing vibes and the Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano work of Al Zulaica – an excellent player we only know from a few of Tjader's albums. Armando Peraza provides some tight conga work on the set – and titles include "Spooky", "Tra La La Song", "Morning Mist", "Alonzo", "Nica's Dream", and "Get Out of My Way" – a great instrumental take on the Latin soul hit from Joe Torres!

New Daniele VidalDaniele Vidal – Best Selection ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cool French grooves from Daniele Vidal – a 60s singer who's not nearly as well-remembered as France Gall or Francoise Hardy, but one who's equally groovy on the tracks on this set! Daniele's music often echoes some of the best styles of Brit girl pop of the time – a bit of Cilla Black maybe, or some Sandie Shaw – using full arrangements that are filled with lots of wonderful flourishes that really work well with the vocals – really playful, but never kitschy – and a bit of a change from the "yeh yeh" modes of the mainstream at the time. The package is hidden under a "love sounds" title, but serves as a great introduction to her work – with 18 tracks that include "Lord Mackintosh", "Je Suis Une Chanson", "Mademoiselle De Paris", "Les Champs Elysees", "Catherine", "Aime Ceux Qui T'Aiment", "123", and "La Coccinelle".

An incredible companion to the book Enjoy The Experience – and like that volume, a set that's filled with gems from the obscure sides of the American recording industry – vanity and privately pressed records that are plenty darn groovy, and pretty darn funky in all the right spots! The book is a painstakingly researched collection – and this soundtrack is just as carefully put together – with a great range of styles – heavily steeped in freaky funk, upbeat boogie, acid folk, offbeat psych, and trippy jazz! The range of sounds is really wonderful – with a feel that's somewhere between a Trunk Records or Finders Keepers compilation – and titles include "Intro (Excerpt)" by The Muzzy Band, "Spacing Out" by The Invaders, Diska Limba Man" by Medico Doktor Vibes, "Music Slave" by Jade, "White Panther" by Arcesia, "Never Come Back" by Boa, "ESP Switch" by Michael Farneti, "6.4 = Makeout" by Gary Wilson, "Just To Say Goodbye" by Russ Saul, "Cadillac Woman" by Stephen David Heitkotter, "Piledriver" by Dennis The Fox, "Old Time Feeling" by Circuit Rider, and "666" by Ray Torske.

New VariousWizzz – Psychorama Francais 1966 to 1971 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Grooviness abounds! This set's a wonderful batch of obscure French pop tunes – all with a hard Go-Go groove, the kind of fab late 60s sound that you'll rarely find documented well in the world of reissues. The album's one of our favorite collections of groovy French tunes – and it's got an excellent blend of slightly funky styles that feature lots of work on fuzzed-out guitars, organ, and heavy bass – the sorts of ultra-hip sounds you might always dig for on French records, yet never find together in one place as great as this! Titles include "Cuisses Nues, Bottes De Cuir" by Philippe Nicaud, "Bernadette" by L'Oeil, "A Degager" by Les Fleurs De Pavot, "Rouge Rouge" by Christie Laume, "Les Filles C'Est Fait" by Charlotte Leslie, "Le Pape Du Pop" by Stephane Varegues, "Avec Les Oreilles" by Monique Thubert, and "Sexologie" by Danyel Gerard.

New Michel LegrandEva ... CD
Bella Casa (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost soundtrack from Michel Legrand! The score is a lightly jazzy one, done for a film starring Jeanne Moreau and directed by Joseph Losey – and the music's a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The overall feel is quite dark – with the kind of jazz-based soundscapes that were showing up in some other French soundtracks at the time, and sweet little noirish feel. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "Eva's Room", "Dumped Tivian", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and more, plus "Adam & Eve" – which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton – and "Loveless Love", sung by "Billy Holiday"!

New VariousBasic Principles Of Sound 3 – Music For The Modern Listener With A Brazilian Flavor ... CD
Soundsational (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third volume in this very groovy series takes a distinct Brazilian turn – and opens up into a sparkling set of bossa jammers and hard jazzy numbers that are extremely well-selected for the set! Not all the tracks are Brazilian in origin, but they are all hard to find – and the groove's extremely solid throughout! Tracks include "Quo Vadis Samba" by Goykovic-Novacek, "Carcara" by Tempo Trio, "Tim Dom Dom" by Joao Donato, "Jangal" by Dom Um Romao, "Batucada Sergiu" by Luis Carlos Vinhas, "Grand Nite For Swinging" by Mary Lou Williams, "Consolacao" by Larry Willis, "Influencia Do Jazz" by Bossa Tres, "Mudei De Idea" by Osmar Milito, "Un Sabor Latino" by Ricardo Marrero, "Cobranca" by Carlos Penha, and "Tema Pro Lins" by Rosinha De Valencia. Lots more, too! CD
