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".

RCA, 1963. Near Mint-
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

Acid rocky moogy stuff! The record's one of those "let's do a lot of pop covers on the moog" – and it features moogy updates of 60's tunes like "Get Back", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Feelin' Groovy", "Yummy Yummy Yummy", and "Time of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
