LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 9

Henry Mancini in 1967 – a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers, as you'll hear on this sweet set of big band recordings! The format here is much more jazz-based than some of Hank's soundtracks from the time – played with a great group of west coast musicians who include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets; Ronny Lang, Plas Johnson, Harry Klee, and Ted Nash on reeds; Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Bain on guitar, and Larry Bunker on vibes – all great players who really have a way of coming together beautifully, then stepping out to bring their own voices strongly to the tunes. And although there's a few soundtrack tunes on the set, most of the compositions are jazz numbers – not penned by Mancini, but definitely given his touch in the arrangements for the date. Titles include "Stockhom Sweetnin", "Tijuana Taxi", "Round Midnight", "The Cat", "Stolen Sweets", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and the great fuzz guitar sounds of "Turtles".

Themes 75
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
Great work from this famous Italian maestro – sweeping, soaring instrumentals – but also a bit funky at times too! Ettore brings a real soundtrack approach to most numbers – fitting, given that most tunes here are film themes – and he uses full strings, plus some nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1963. Very Good
A set that has Sid Ramin working with a large group, but getting a really tight sound out of them throughout – a mode that's more soundtrack-styled than any sort of jazz big band – but which still has lots of jazzy flourishes from the horns in the group! Arrangements are plenty playful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Nero hits the disco years of the 70s – and uses the groove to really transform his sound in a mighty great way!

Sounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass
A&M, 1967. Very Good
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker ... LP, Vinyl record album
