✨✧ Arthur LymanBahia ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Very Good ... $5.99
An exotica classic! Bahia is awash in wonderful sounds – some light sound effects, especially birds, borrowed from the Martin Denny exotica mode – but also some more fully-formed instrumental passages that also show a strong Les Baxter influence too! There's some really wonderful vibes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur LymanLeis Of Jazz ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The title's no lie, as the album's a lot jazzier than some of Arthur Lyman's other records – a bit more upbeat, and almost like some vibes-led combo from the LA scene of the 50s! Pianist Alan Soares has a strong role in the set – providing a bit more bite than usual for an Arthur Lyman ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur LymanOn Broadway ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Sealed ... $4.99
A set that's exactly what it promises, Lyman-styled exotic readings of Broadway tunes – most of which are taken pretty far from their origins in shows! The versions here are all instrumental – with Lyman's trademark blend of vibes, percussion, piano, and more – and the group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An excellent album from Galt MacDermot – featuring some nice funky readings of tracks from his score to Hair! Galt MacDermot's letting loose here, with a large team of crack jazzmen, including Bernard Purdie on drums and Rick Shorter on electronic effects – and the groove's a lot ...

Norio MaedaRock Communication Yagi Bushi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Crown/Clinck (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
Wicked funk from Japanese keyboardist Norio Maeda – also a hell of an arranger, too – as you'll hear on this superb set from the start of the 70s! The record's one of those key albums that took a 60s groovy Japanese sound much further into the future – giving the whole thing a ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more CD

Henry ManciniBig Screen Little Screen ... LP
RCA, 1971. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Henry Mancini balances things out between the big screen of the cinema and the little screen of the TV – both showcases for his famous work over the years!

Henry ManciniDebut – The Philadelphia Orchestra Pops ... LP
RCA, 1969. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Debut has Henry Mancini making his debut as a conductor of the Philadelphia Pops – a larger orchestra than you'll usually hear on most Manini albums, which allows Hank to really open up in some more sophisticated modes! The songs are mostly more serious Mancini compositions – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniMancini Country/Country Gentleman ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two unusual Nashville-tinged albums from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Mancini Country is quite an interesting set – not what you might expect from the mostly-urbane Henry Mancini – but a record that fits surprisingly well into his early 70s catalog! At the time, ... read more CD

Henry ManciniMancini Touch ... CD
RCA, 1959. Used ... $11.99
Delightful instrumentals – not as jazzy as Mancini's regular soundtrack work, but still pretty nice! The tracks are more in an easy instrumental vein – but given Hank's style, they're still pretty cool, especially as they feature work by west coast jazzmen like Shelly Manne, Victor ... read more CD

RCA, 1973. Very Good- ... $1.99
Very groovy 70s work from Henry Mancini – way more than you might expect from the strings in the title!

MarkettsAM-FM Etc ... LP
Mercury, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
An older instrumental style makes the move into a 70s groove – as The Marketts take on a smoother LA electric sound than their 60s sides, adding in more keyboards and quieting down the "twang" on the guitar. The album includes a nice version of "Mystery Movie Theme", plus ... (Rock, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album
