Bob Brookmeyer/Lalo SchifrinTrombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy .... $13.99 18.98
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work from other great Verve talents too – a tight small group that features Gary McFarland on vibes, Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney on guitars, and Willie Bobo on drums – alongside some added percussion that really helps keep the bossa spirit strong! Tunes have that spare, soulful crackle that you'd find in the Stan Getz bossa sessions for Verve – except that trombone is the lead solo instrument here – and titles include "A Felicidade", "Col Bogey Bossa Nova", "Blues Bossa Nova", "Qual E O Po", "Chara Tu Tristeza", and "Samba De Orfeu". Samba Para Dos is a great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions!

Lalo SchifrinBetween Broadway and Hollywood ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Very Good .... $2.99
Like the title says, a mix of show and Hollywood stuff, with emphasis on the latter. All cuts feature the Schifrin's sweeping piano over a tight small combo sound. The killer cut here is "Jive Orbit", a syncopated, uptempo swinger, with pounding bass intro. Other tracks include "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Hallucinations", "Who Will Buy", "Hud", and "She Loves Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinBossa Nova Groove ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1962. New Copy .... $18.99
Great CD that brings together 2 rare bossa sessions by the great Lalo Schifrin! One of these was originally issued under Schifrin's name on the Audio Fidelity label, the other was issued under Eddie Harris' name on Vee Jay – and they're both great bossa jazz instrumental sessions! At the time, Schfrin was fresh in the US, and making his name as the young Latin pianist/arranger who was giving a whole new sound to Dizzy Gillespie's group. The tracks on here have a nice raw sound, with more of a straight bossa jazz groove than some of his later recordings. Schifrin plays piano throughout – and one sesssion features Eddie Harris on tenor and Jimmy Raney on guitar, while the other has Leo Wright on alto and flute, plus added Brazilian percussion. There's a whopping 18 tracks in all, with a very tasty early bossa groove – and titles include "Mima", "Samba Para Dos", "O Apito No Samba", "Boato", "Ouca", "Bossa Nova Em Nova York", and "Whispering Bossa Nova".

Lalo SchifrinIns & Outs ... LP
PAJ, 1982. Near Mint- .... $7.99
A great return to form for Lalo Schifrin – and a straight album of jazz tunes, recorded after years of late 70s disco work! The album almost returns Schifrin to his 60s years with Dizzy Gillespie (except for the fact that there's no trumpet on the set) – and the tunes have a great mix of jazz, Latin, and soundtrack influences – of the sort that first got Lalo noticed back in the early days! Lalo's playing acoustic piano throughout – and pretty nicely, too we might add – and titles include "Ins & Outs", "Con Alma", "Manteca", "Paraphrase", "The Fox", and "Love Poem For Donna".

New Lalo SchifrinMannix – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
One of Lalo Schifrin's greatest soundtracks ever – a gem of a TV score that's been lost for years – and not nearly as famous or well-reissued as Mission Impossible, Bullitt, or Enter The Dragon! The tunes are pure Schifrin all the way through – a mix of jazz, bossa, and funk – served up with a style that's always tight, and which makes for plenty of great groovers all the way through. Instrumentation includes vibes, flutes, guitar, and plenty of great horns – but the rhythms at the bottom are what really hold the whole thing together – romping along with lots of great 70s touches, in a groove that's much hipper than even most of the other cop show soundtracks of the time! Titles include "The Shadow", "Hunt Down", "The Edge Of Night", "Mannix", "Turn Every Stone", and "Fear". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinNo One Home ... LP
Tabu, 1979. Very Good .... $4.99
A sweet set of fusiony soul from Lalo Schifrin – actually better than most of his other late 70s efforts, including some of his soundtrack work! The album's in the same territory that Quincy Jones was hitting at the time – at its core, a set of funky electric jazz – but done with an expansive approach that also brings in soulful vocals on most tracks, really hitting some nice R&B-styled fusion grooves! Sylvia Smith is the lead singer on most of the vocal tunes, and other players include west coast soul jazzers like Ndugu Chancler, Oscar Brashear, Paul Jackson, Ronnie Foster, and Patrice Rushen. Titles include "Memory Of Love", "Middle Of The Night", "No One Home", "Enchanted Flame", and "Oh Darlin Life Goes On". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinTowering Toccata ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1977. New Copy .... $13.99
Electric 70s work from Lalo Schifrin – with a tight uptempo funky sound that's similar to his strong "cop show" soundtrack themes of the time! This album's a pretty great testament to Lalo's durability as one of the great composer arrangers – sublime stuff from the late 70s, and a record that really works nicely alongside Schifrin's music for films. Lalo's got a great crew for the set, too – including Joe Farrell and Jeremy Steig on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Gadd and Andrew Smith on drums, accompaniment on keys by Chuck Spangler and a host of others! Titles include "Eagles In Love", "Macumba", "Theme From Most Wanted", "Theme From King Kong", and "Roller Coaster". CD

Lalo SchifrinBullitt – Original Soundtrack (200 gram vinyl – with download) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
1968. New Copy (reissue).... Around April 19, 2014
Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you like his stuff, we can bet that this will become one of your favorites. The record's darn tough to find, and this reissue is a real treat to have around! Cuts include "Bullitt", "Room 26", "On the Way To San Mateo", and "Shifting Gears". 2014 vinyl version from Aleph Records includes cues never before released on vinyl!

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... CD
1973. New Copy .... Around June 25, 2014
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". CD

1978. New Copy .... Around April 28, 2014
An ambitious set of funky jazz tunes from Lalo – cut in the proto-disco style of some of his later CTI work, but also done with some interesting instrumental flourishes from track to track. The album's got a "gypsy" spirit in the compositions – sometimes touched with a bit of acoustic guitar – but overall, the main groove is electric, laid down by lots of keyboard grooves from Lalo and Mike Melvoin. A few tracks are a bit hokey, but overall, the album's as strong as most of Lalo's other work from the time – and tracks include "Fortune Tellers", "Ring Around The Moon", "Prophecy Of Love", and "Pampas".

Lalo SchifrinDissection & Reconstruction Of Music – Marquis De Sade ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
The Marquis De Sade never sounded so sweet! For some strange reason, Schifrin decided to pay a musical hommage to De Sade with this one – but fortunately, he's not punishing himself with the subject matter at all, and is sticking to his jazzy bossa guns. The arrangements have a tight Verve mid 60s groove to them – with breakout solos on piano and flute, slightly baroque scoring that mixes strings, harpsichord, and some straighter jazz playing, and a good focus on strong rhythm playing throught. A breezy treat that would make any of us drop a paddle and kick back for a cocktail – if we had the chance! Titles include "Bossa Antique", "The Wig", "Old Laces", "Beneath A Weeping Willow Shade", "Renaissance", and "Troubadour". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1964. Very Good- .... Just Sold Out!
The great Lalo Schifrin plays piano and leads a crack group of studio players through some larger orchestral material with a nice jazzy feel! The overall approach is similar to Lalo's classic 60s soundtrack work – with nice solos arching out over sweeping strings and orchestral passages, and all tracks written with a good deal of punch, plus lots of little Latiny influences. Easily one of his most perfectly conceived albums of the 60s – and pretty darn tough to find. Tracks are long and titles include "El Salon Mexico", "New Fantasy", "Sabre Dance", and "Prelude #2".

New Lalo SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dot/Universal (France), 1968. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and hip than even the best of Schifrin's soundtrack work from the 60s! Some tunes certainly show the deft talent for arranging woodwinds and rhythms that first caught the ears of so many listeners on famous soundtracks – but in the setting of this record, away from any directorial needs, Lalo's also free to explore some groovier music ideas – and he really lets loose tremendously as the set rolls on! The titles alone should tell you the feel of the record – with names like "Secret Code", "Dissolving", "Vaccinated Mushrooms", "Wheat Germ Landscapes", and "How To Open at Will The Most Beautiful Window". CD also features four groovy bonus tracks by Schifrin – "Another Side Of Harry", "Blues A Go Go", "Lucille", and "Self Destruct". CD

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet & Orchestra – Experience/Tensity/Dialogues ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good .... $6.99
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features a recording of Axelrod's "Tensity" and William Fischer's "Experience In E", both conducted by Fischer, a hip modern soul-oriented arranger, with a sound that's not dissimilar to Axelrod. The last piece on the album is a nice long one by Lalo Schifrin, "Dialogues For Jazz Quintet & Orchestra", which is also conducted by him as well. LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The LP's overflowing with tracks, including a few bonus mixes, and there's even 2 vocal numbers that feature The Three Degrees. Titles include "The Thief", "Beauty & The Bass", "Diamonds", "Party Piece", "Thief On the Prowl", and more! Nice notes, and some nicely funky crime themes, too! Nice gatefold cover, too!

The overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, and tight fast rhythmic tunes. The original's rare as hen's teeth, and the record is some of Tew's finest Brit easy work from the time. Titles include "Contract Man", "Killer HIll", "The Heist", "GBH", "Blue Panther", "The Spic", "Funky Bear", and "The Peterman". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good+ .... $9.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma".

A sweet bit of funk from 70s France – and a great batch of electric keyboard tunes from Jacky Giordano, with a sound that's in the mode of 70s soundtrack work by Lalo Schifrin! The album was originally issued in 1976 as a small-run sound library record, and it's a masterpiece of keyboard grooves – spare and dark, with a mixture of moody and moogy grooves that lie somewhere between the American sound of CTI and Kudu. All tracks are great, and the album's got a warm finish that gives it a deeply soulful feel – a quality level that's high enough that would have made it a hit, were it issued over here in the US at the time. Titles include "Terefic War", "The Big Mameluk", "Moving Grooving", "Devil's Train", "Sex Girl", "Blue Circuit", and "Tabla Minor". CD

Dox (Netherlands), 2012. New Copy .... $15.99
A cool little set from reedman Benjamin Herrman – even cooler than his work with The New Cool Collective! The album's packaged in a DVD-style case, and has a very cinematic feel – core sounds from a combo led by Herrman, and featuring lots of Hammond and guitar – but then backed by richer strings from the City Of Prague Orchestra, who shade things in with a sweet soundtrack sort of vibe –a great blend of jazz and grooves that likes somewhere in a space between Lalo Schifrin and Johnny Mandel – with rich sounds that perfectly skirt the late 60s/early 70s era! Totally great stuff – the deepest work we've heard from Herrman so far – and titles include "He'll Never Get Her", "Sara Sunbathing", "Room 1618", "Barcelona Daybreak", "She Wants Out", and "Sara Said Yes".

Al HirtAl Hirt Plays Bert Kaempfert/Latin In The Horn ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1968. New Copy .... $16.99
A pair of groovy groovy records from trumpeter Al Hirt! Hirt Plays Bert has Al Hirt taking on the music of German easy maestro Bert Kaempfert – working strongly with this cool syncopated electric bass at the bottom – which creates the same sort of stepping grooves you'd hear in Bert's music! Most tunes are numbers made into instrumental hits by Kaempfert, but given a more expressive Hirt flourish in the lead trumpet – and titles include "Swingin Safari", "Red Roses For A Blue Lady", "Spanish Eyes", "Magic Trumpet", "Afrikaan Beat", and "Strangers In The Night". Latin In The Horn is one of the grooviest albums ever from trumpeter Al Hirt – thanks to some great arrangements from Lalo Schifrin! The "Latin" in the horn is a bit subdued here – not as firey as the title might make you think, but with a majestic, noble sound – one that has Al blowing a mixture of Brazilian and Spanish themes in a slightly dramatic way, underpinned by groovy Schifrin arrangements that have the sweeping feel of his cinematic work of the 60s! There's less bossa than you might expect, but the setting is still pretty darn great – and the Latin themes really take Hirt past his usual hoke of the time. Titles include "Manha De Carnival", "Taboo", "Baia", "Gringo A Go Go", "A Sky Without Stars", "Be True To Me", and "Desafinado". CD

New Michel MagneSerie OSS 117 ... CD
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $14.99
Groovy 60s spy soundtrack work – with a mod French twist! The CD documents a series of excellent scores by French composer Michel Magne – written for a run of mid 60s films based around the character of OSS 117 – a James Bond-like secret agent known to the French public through a series of 242 successful novels! The scope of OSS 117's adventures was large – as globe-spanning as that of James Bond, a fact that gave Magne plenty of room to throw in cool exotic, groovy, and jazzy elements to the soundtracks – in a style that was ultimately a heck of a lot more lively than that of John Barry, and which easily matches the best 60s soundtrack work of Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith, or Hugo Montenegro! We'd honestly never heard any of these tracks before – but our love of Magne led us to the set, and we were certainly rewarded – as the 23 track package is overflowing with incredibly groovy tunes, and has the feel of some of the best Crippled Dick collections from years past! The four films on the set include OSS 117 Se Dechaine, Banco A Bangkok Pour OSS 117, Furia A Bahia Pour OSS 117, and Atout Coeur A Tokyo Pour OSS 117 – and titles include "OSS 117 Hully Gully", "Banco A Bangkok", "Poursuite Thailandaise", "Hubert Rit Jaune", "Samba Furiosa", and "Slow Du Soleil Levant" – as well as a bonus remix track by Roudoudou!

If Hawaii was this funky, we'd move there in a minute – and honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if this record did a heck of a lot for the image of state back in the day! The soundtrack is one of our all-time favorites – a driving batch of larger orchestrations that is heavy on percussion, filled with jazzy riffs, and which makes great use of electric bass to round out the bottom nicely! Mort Stevens goes way beyond the typical cop show groove on this one – filling up the record with rich colors, unique tones, and some great inflections on the horn passages that charge each tune with a mad level of excitement. There's some great instrumental touches in the set too – like occasional fuzzed-out guitar, Hammond organ, and even a bit of sweet flute and soulful sax – giving the whole thing a feel that reminds us of Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. Includes the massive "Hawaii Five-O" theme, plus the cuts "Call To Danger", "Up Tight", "Blues Trip", "The Long Wait", "The Floater", "Beach Trip", "Operation Smash", "McGarrett's Theme", and "Front Street".

Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $15.99
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade for an extended stint in Europe. Still he cut some fantastic early work with both Dizzy Gillespie and Lalo Schifrin – and this album captures him right during the peak of that early period! The record features light lively backing from a quartet that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and some tracks have a beautifully groovy sound that's slightly bossa, slightly soul jazz. One of the best of these is Wright's great cover of "A Felicidade", but the record contains many other great moments, like "The Wiggler", "Tali", "Sassy Lady", and "Dionysis". CD

Titles include "Today" by Tom Scott, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "I Love You More & More" by Tom Brock, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Jorge Ben, "Soul Bossa Nova" by Quincy Jones, "Yo Soy Cubano" by Chakachas, "Listen To Me" by Luiz Henrique, "Daylight" by Ramp, "Someday" by George Duke, "Get Up" by Vernon Burch, "Mellow Mellow Right On" by Lowrell Simon, "Enchanted Lady" by Milt Jackson & Ray Brown, "Jim On The Move" by Lalo Schifrin, "Viva Tirado" by El Chicano, and "Daydream" by Gunter Kallman Choir.

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!

VariousSpectrum – Thrilling 60's Film Noir Themes ... LP
Plastic (Italy), 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $22.99
The folks at Plastic dig a little deeper than usual for this one, and they turn up a nice batch of cuts – some obscure, some better-known – to define the genre of 60's Noir. The 16 tracks on the compilation are a mix of crime/spy type tracks, moody jazz vocal tracks, and dark moody orchestral themes. Although some of the stuff is a bit funky, the mood is much different than the usual funk compilation, and has more of an overall spooky feel. Tracks include "Out Of This World" by Mark Murphy, "Crossfire" by The Hurricanes, "Ennloro" by Percy Faith, "Jesus Christ Superstar" by Armando Sciascia, "Goldfinger" by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, "Love For Sale" by Eartha Kitt, "Harlem Love Theme" by JJ Johnson, and more by Lalo Schifrin, Cal Tjader, Oscar Brown, and others!

VariousVerve – The Sound Of America – Singles Collection (5 CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 5 CDs .... $62.99 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.

New Rodolfo AlchourronSanata Y Clarificacion Volumes 1 & 2 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1972/1974. Used .... Just Sold Out!
A cool collection of very unusual grooves from Argentine composer/guitarist Rodolfo Alchourron – part of a generation of groundbreaking musicians in his homeland that also included Lalo Schifrin and Gato Barbieri – yet unlike those artists, a talent that never achieved greater global fame! The first album here – the initial Santa Y Clarificacion set – is very much like something Lalo Schifrin might do, but even more offbeat – as it's a weird blend of jazzy instrumentation, funky rhythms, and spacious sounds that would definitely be right at home in a film score – yet which stretch out even more in the expanded space of the album's long tracks! Instrumentation includes Organ, tenor, alto, flute, and some great electric bass and drums – really romping at the bottom, and driving the tunes along wonderfully. There's a bit of wordless vocals at a few spare points – breezily grooving along – on titles that include "Clarificacion", "El Stanabancos", "No Divaguen", "Melopea", and "Pajaros Sueltos". The second album – Santa Y Clarificacion – has a similar groove, but one that goes out even more – almost a touch more of a fusion influence at points, although there's still some great horn charts that continue a soundtrack vibe. Horns cascade beautifully, falling into some great chord changes and washes of color that really warm things up – and titles include "Vals Trunco", "Esas Dos Cosas Benditas", "Casi Un Tango", "Vals En La Muy Sostenido", and "Algunos Dias Alguna Noches".

New Stan GetzChildren Of The World ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last albums that Stan ever cut with larger arrangements – a surprisingly nice late 70s session that features backings from Lalo Schifrin! Most of the tunes on the set are Schifrin originals (save for one dodgy number from Evita!) – done in a sweetly flowing soundtracky style that works perfectly with Stan's breezy horn. Instrumentation's got some light Latin touches – but mostly in a fuller orchestral mode, with percussion sneaking out of the strings – and titles include "Children Of The World", "Livin It Up", "Street Tatoo", "Around The Day In Eighty Worlds", and "You Me & The Spring".

New Paul HornJazz Suite On The Mass Texts ... LP
RCA, 1965. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Paul Horn's groovier albums from the 60s – and a record that features some nice arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! As the title might make you guess, the album's kind of a "jazz mass", and replicates the Kyrie, Gloria, and Offertory progression of a regular Catholic mass. The whole thing might be pretty snoozy, but it's fortunately saved by some nice playing by Horn, and by groovy elements in Schifrin's arrangements, particularly the percussion playing of Emil Richards and Milt Holland. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

New Mustafa OzkentGenclik Ile Elele (Hand In Hand With Youth) ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, 1973. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s! Like Lalo, Mustafa had a great ear for mixing funkier rhythms and fuller orchestrations – often with odd instrumental twists and turns that bubble over with a fair bit of electricity over heavy percussion – kind of in an Incredible Bongo Band way, but with some moogier touches overall! The record's an instrumental masterpiece through and through – filled with enough heavy breaks to satisfy even the pickiest crate-digger, but also the more complicated arrangements to appeal to fans of funky 70s soundtracks! Titles include "Uskudar", "Burcak", "Dolana", "Carsamba", "Lorke", "Ayas", "Emmioglu", and "Karadir". CD

New VariousLateNightTales – Jamiroquai ... CD
Azuli/Ultra, 1970s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great selection of older soul and funk tracks – tunes that provided the inspiration for the Jamiroquai sound, a fact that you'll hear immediately when listening to the set! Jay and crew really came up with a stellar batch of tunes for the package – all sweet groovers with a classic 70s sound – tracks that are mostly soul, but which have a heck of a lot of funky jazz in the instrumentation, rhythms, and phrasing. Titles include "California Dreamin" by Jose Feliciano, "Life On Mars" by Dexter Wansel, "Tonight's The Night" by Kleer, "Here My Dear" by Marvin Gaye, "Whisper Zone" by Ramsey Lewis, "Girl I Think The World About You" by The Commodores, "I'll Never Forget" by Dexter Wansel, "Pretty Baby" by Sister Sledge, "Music Of The Earth" by Patrice Rushen, "Enter The Dragon" by Lalo Schifrin, and "Happiness" by The Pointer Sisters. 17 tracks on one CD – supposedly mixed, but mostly back to back.

Verve, 1963. Used .... Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the Stan Getz sound of the 60s – an album that features Stan blowing in front of some beautiful backdrops set by Lalo Schifrin and Claus Ogerman! The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory lines that sweep and swirl with his best 60s work. The sound is incredible – a whole new level of genius to a player who'd already recorded in so many other strong modes at the time – and titles include "Sleeping Bee", "Nitetime Street", "Early Autumn", "Charade", "Love", and "Reflections".

New Roy BuddGet Carter (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Silva Screen/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Brit soundtrack genius Roy Budd – an artist who started with his roots in jazz piano, but who really explods here in a range of groovy styles! The main title is an incredible blend of Eastern percussion and moody jazz – and other cuts bring in some trippier elements, mixed with funkier bits and warmer moments – all at a level that have Budd even outdoing the best late 60s work by Lalo Schifrin! The keyboards are often at the forefront – either acoustic or electric – and the album's got so many groovy grooves, with such variety, it's got a feel that's much richer than the usual soundtrack set. Titles include "Love Is A Four Letter Word", "Carter Takes A Train", "Looking For Someone", "The Girl In The Car", "Livin Should Be This Way", "Manhunt", "Goodbye Carter", and "Hallucinations". Plus, this version also features some very cool bits of dialogue from the film, too! LP, Vinyl record album

New Stelvio CiprianiL'Uomo Piu Velenoso Del Cobra ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A very cool early 70s soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani – and done with a killer jazz funk style! L'Uomo Piu Velenoso Del Cobra is a seedy Italian flick with globetrotting murder mystery plot – and the Cipriani's vibe here is clearly informed by Lalo Schifrin's work from the mid 60s to early 70s – and especially his theme for Mission: Impossible. Stelvio is riffing on maestro Schifrin's style here, but he's not ripping it off – as there's a charming loungey jazz funk groove here that's as unique is it is reverent! Lots of groovy organs, some killer horns, strongs and a swinging early 70s rhythm. Great stuff! 19 sequences on the title theme. CD
