18th Century ConceptsIn the 20th Century Bag ... LP
Sidewalk, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Some "baroque" pop stuff from this groovy studio band on Sidewalk. As the liner notes say "The great hits of today, with today's exciting beat", but with a group that gives the songs a fake 18th century sound. Mike Curb's on keyboards, and there may be a potential Wu-Tang sample or two here! Titles include "Can't Hurry Love", "Little Toy Soldier", "Eleanor Rigby", "18th Century Bag", "Old Time Movies", and "A Lover's Concerto". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has initials in marker on back.)

✨✧ Victor FeldmanVictor Feldman Plays Everything In Sight ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
They certainly got the title right on this one – as Feldman moves from his usual staid jazz mode, to come up with a very groovy LP! In the course of the album, Vic gets his hands on conga, sand blocks, vibes, drums, organ, electric piano, tympani, tambourine, jawbone, novachord, and a lot more – creating some great little tunes with a heavily percussive groove to them. The set's a great mix of jazz and mod – with a sound that would make Verve weep! Titles include "Voce E Eu", "Do The Jake", "Geronimo", "Sunshine Superman", "In The Mood", "Have A Heart", and "This Door Swings Both Ways". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam.)

Ferrante & TeicherHeavenly Sounds In Hi Fi ... LP
ABC, Early 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
One of the best non-Winchester albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – not as crazy as some of their work, but still with some good elements of the piano trickery that made them famous. Titles include "Out Of This World", "East Of The Sun", "Over The Rainbow", "Stars In My Eyes", and "Stella By Starlight". Also features the original tracks "Serenade To A Star" and "Beyond The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Al HirtSoul In the Horn ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Al Hirt's grooviest records – and a set that definitely lives up to the "soul" in the title! The album's always in demand for the excellent sample cut "Harlem Hendoo", but it certainly isn't a one tracker – thanks to composer Paul Griffin and arranger Teacho Wiltshire, as Hirt gets un-characteristically funky on tunes like "Honey Pot", "Mess Around", "Girl", and "Love Ya' Baby".

Manny AlbamDrum Feast ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great one from arranger Manny Albam – heavy on drums, but with some nice exotic touches too! No players listed – but we're guessing it's a pretty hip lineup! (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and splitting.)

Ronnie AldrichDestination Love ... LP
Phase 4/London, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from Brit Easy pianist Ronnie Aldrich – filled with groovy late 60s tunes, and handled with some slightly funky and mod-styled backings that make the album groove a lot more than most of Ronnie's other work! The set's played by Ronnie and his "two pianos" (wink, wink), along with the London Festival Orchestra – and has a rich, full sound that comes out to best effect on the album's uptempo numbers. Titles include "Theme From In The Dark", "Good Morning Starshine", "My Cherie Amour", "Aquarius", "Classical Gas", "Midnight Cowboy", "Quentin's Theme", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

Steve AllenMusic For Tonight ... LP
Coral, Late 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
The famous author/disc jockey/comedian/talk show host lays down an album of moody jazzy piano, with light tinkling ivories over a lush large orchestra. The music's mostly standards, but there's a couple Steve Allen originals: "Tonight", "Candlelight" and "Stay Just a Little While". 12 tracks in all, the set also includes "I'm Glad There Is You", "For The Very First Time", "The Man With A Horn", "Imagination" and "I Fall In love Too Easily".

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, percussion, and even a bit of whistling on a few tracks! The vibe's very much in the best Verve/Impulse takes on the bossa – done with a clear California influence, which keeps things cool and breezy – and which also pushes Almeida past his sometimes-staid style on guitar. Two cuts also feature some great vocals by Irene Kral – and titles include "Twilight In Rio", "Old Guitaron", "Sarah's Samba", "Izabella", "Winter Moon", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Choro For People In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo".

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSRO ... LP
A&M, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
A standing room ovation in the A&M Studios – certainly the kind of reception we'd imagine Herb would get during these glory years of his career! The set's one of the most no-nonsense Tijuana Brass sessions of the 60s – a tightly crafted album that has a bit more jazz than usual sneaking in on some of the tunes, but still enough of that snapping, punchy rhythmic approach that makes Herb and the group so great! As usual, the fluidity here is the strongest point – as the A&M touch takes a sound that should be hokey, and flips it into something really really groovy through warm use of compression in the studio. Titles include "Blue Sunday", "Bean Bag", "Work Song", "Our Day Will Come", "Mexican Road Race", and "Freight Train Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhat Now My Love ... LP
A&M, 1966. Very Good ... $1.99
The genius of this set is summed up in the tune "Magic Trumpet" – perhaps one of the best estimations of Herb's talents we could think of! The tune, like the entire album, is a fluid bit of magic that takes an older brass-driven mode into the far groovier styles of the 60s – an approach that fuses all the horns around Herb's boldly stated lead, and slides them all around in jaunty rhythms that are a perfect blend of the A&M groove and an imagined Latin past! Titles include "Freckles", "Magic Trumpet", "Five Minutes More", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Plucky", "So What's New", and "It Was A Very Good Year". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The TJBConey Island ... LP
A&M, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Sweet mid 70s work from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – still at the height of their powers on Coney Island – rolling effortlessly between upbeat, jazzy numbers and more laidback and melodic ones! This one has a pretty big sound overall, all produced and arranged by Herb, who is in fine, re-energized form here. By this point, Herb could've simply coasted on nostalgia, but there's a more timeless feel on this one than on a lot of his 60s albums, honestly, and the band is really firing on all cylinders. Breezy fun on par with Herb's best of the 70s! Titles include "Coney Island", "I Have Dreamed", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Catfish", "This Masquerade", "Carmine", "Vento Bravo", "I Belong", "Senor Mouse" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Coney Island ... CD 10.99

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the orchestrations in broad washes of color and tone. Moore scored the entire piece for Leda's voice – an extended 3 part suite that runs through series of dark, jazz, and playful moods – all featuring some incredible vocals by Leda!

Apollo 100Joy ... LP
Mega, Late 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
A real treat for the 2001 generation! Apollo 100 takes Bach's "Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring", and gives is a jazzy electric keyboard reading – kind of a perfect bit of fluffy pop for a generation that was already digging the classical/easy experiments of the Swingle Singers and Walter Carlos. Not all the material is classically oriented, but most of the tracks have some very nice keyboard work. Titles include "Jazz Pizzicato", "Evil Midnight", and "Reach for the Sky". LP, Vinyl record album
