One of the cooler albums from UK Hammond player Harry Stoneham – a musician who could really hit the keys, but sometimes worked in medleys of tunes that packed everything together! That's not the case here, though, as the cuts are a bit open and feature more solo space than usual – and ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Just Sold Out!
One of Gabor Szabo's amazing late 60s albums for the Skye label – trippy, jazzy, and with a mod exotica vibe that would never be matched again! Gabor's playing guitar in a two-guitar frontline, which makes for lots of dreamy interplay between the strings – a shifting pattern of sound ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bacchanal ... LP Skye, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album from Gabor Szabo – one with the same freely grooving, slightly-psychedelic sound that he was using on his best records for the Impulse label! Two guitars head up the quintet – those of Gabor and Jim Stewart – and they trade breezy lines throughout, grooving over ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Super-hip stuff from guitarist Gabor Szabo! If you don't know his style, Gabor had this breezy chordal approach that was perfect for some of the hippy dippy/psyche jazz settings he was working with at Impulse Records. The tracks on the set mix together bossa grooves, eastern rhythms, easy pop, ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some gloss bubbles near the spine.)
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Excellent trippy pop-psychedelia from Gabor Szabo! The record's a bit less jazz than some of his other efforts, with more of that faked-out "eastern"production that you'd get on efforts like these – with occasional voices behind his guitar. Titles include "The End Of ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Ventures were furiously productive in the early 60s – delivering gem after gem – and this is among the best! Telstar is somewhere near the ninth record by the group, offering a dizzying mix of covers of some of the most popular songs of the day. The guitar still leads as the main ...

The title should give this one away, as it's a pretty hip batch of mellow instrumentals – fronted by trombonist Bill Watrous, who's the main soloist, with backing by the Walter Raim Concept. There's lots of nice jazzy touches in Watrous' solos – and titles include "Aquarius", ... (Jazz, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Amazing stuff – one of those records you see for years, and always pass by – but which yields some real surprises once you dig in! Mason Williams is one of the cooler cats in the Warner Brothers stable of the late 60s – but he's also one of the more subtle, too – a folkie ... (Rock, Now Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
