Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has a bit of pen on back.)

Duke EllingtonAnatomy Of A Murder ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
A beautiful jazzy score by Duke Ellington – and a fitting companion to this classic Otto Preminger film! The record captures Ellington at a perfect moment – right during his Indigos period of increased sophistication, when his band was at an all-time level of perfection – and really shaking free of the too-familiar modes of the past. Ellington's music has a wonderful range of feeling here – even more so than usual, given the shifting scenes of the film – and the players are an all star lineup that includes Clark Terry on trumpet, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Johnny Hodges on alto, and Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet. Titles include "Upper & Outest", "Almost Cried", "Sunswept Sunday", "Happy Anatomy", "Flirtibird", and "Low Key Lightly". (Jazz, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has a partially split top seam.)

Francis LaiAnima Persa ... LP
CAM (Italy), 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A moody little 70s soundtrack from French composer Francis Lai! The score has a softer, smoother sound than some of his 60s work – but it's still got that great penchant for romantic-tinged themes that he first began with A Man & A Woman, turned here into a 70s mode that has a bit more electric instrumentation, almost grooving in a mellow sex-styled mode that recalls the backings for some of France's breathier singers of the time. As with most of Lai's best work, there's some fantastic melodies on the tunes – and the production has this echoey edge that makes them come out even better on record than on paper! Titles include "Tino E Lucia", "Il Segreto", "Anima Persa", "Rivelazione E Finale", "Zia Elisa", "Lucia", and "L'Accademia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has one bumped corner, but is nice overall.)

Francis Lai/Pierre Barouh/Nicole Croisille13 Jours En France (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Saravah/Seven Seas (Japan), 1970. Very Good ... $36.99
Genius work from French composer Francis Lai – one of his greatest soundtracks ever, and done during the same period as Live For Life and A Man & A Woman! The feel here is very similar to the work of those films – and was also done for a project directed by Claude Lelouch – and as on A Man & A Woman, both Pierre Barouh and Nicole Croisille sing vocals on the session, bringing a really groovy vocal touch to the set! The tunes range from broadly sweeping and soaring numbers, to others that have a bouncy French pop feel – and Lai really comes through with some beautiful instrumentation for the set, especially on a few of the tracks that feature organ! There's 3 versions of the great track "Killy", an anthemic ditty that's sung by Nicole Croisille, and played again on solo organ – and other tracks include "Descente", "Peggy", and "13 Jours En France". Great great stuff, and a soundtrack that we're really excited to have! LP, Vinyl record album
(Unusual Japanese pressing! Cover is great – and vinyl is nice and clean, with just some light surface marks from the old inner sleeve.)

Johnny MandelAmericanization Of Emily ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Near Mint- ... $1.99
One of those soundtracks that outlived the life of the film – or at least the theme did! "Emily" is one of the best ballads to be penned in the 60s – a dreamy number offered up here in a number of different ways by Johnny Mandel – with strings, reeds, and in larger orchestral passages. The work is very similar to Mandel's sublime score for The Sandpiper – another film that had a hugely popular theme, but which kind of tanked as a cinematic outing! Titles include "The Next Day", "Condolence Call", "Surprise", "Tea Party", and "Vacation In Sussex". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color mono pressing.)
