Si ZentnerRight Here Right Now/Rhythm Plus Blues ... CD
Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1963/1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of overlooked gems from Si Zentner – both from the Liberty Records scene of the 60s! First up is Right Here Right Now – a mod swinger from bandleader Si Zentner – a talent who's always ready to groove with the times – which in this case means that he's got a sweet 60s style that's mighty darn nice! Si's band is a big one, but they've got a lean Liberty Records feel here – really moving nicely over a range of contemporary numbers that are somewhere between jazz and pop instrumentals – probably more of the former, given all the great horn arrangements on the set! Titles include "Sunny", "My Girl", "Double Whammy", "Goin Out Of My Head", "Soul Machine", "I'm On My Way", and "Skootchy". Rhythm Plus Blues has Si Zentner taking on some of the R&B modes of the late 50s generation – but in ways that really retune the style to the swinging big band mode of the Zentner group! Bob Florence handles the arrangements, and creates some great interplay in the horns – and surprisingly, there's a number of cool originals by Si nestled into the set, alongside his own instrumental readings of older R&B hits. Titles include "Simon Sez", "Walkin", "Doggin Around", "Caldonia", "What Am I Living For", "Puddle Jumpin", and "Honeydripper". CD

✨✧ Martin DennyHypnotique ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing little set that's as compelling as the title and cover might imply – and easily one of our favorite Martin Denny albums ever! There's a sound here that is, actually, quite "hypnotique" – as Denny's core combo is expanded by some larger arrangements, Japanese instrumentation, and even some cool vocals by the Jack Halloran singers – all of which serve to create these pulsating musical lines that shift and sway with an extremely dreamy quality, one that can easily hypnotize us with its musical magic! The added sound really adds a lot to Denny's core group – and the record has some great tracks like "Jungle Madness", "American In Bali", "Chinese Lullaby", "Hypnotique", "Scimitar", and "Voodoo Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Martin DennyLatin Village ... LP
Liberty, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin here – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of electric bass echoing out at the bottom of some cuts, more echo than usual on the piano lines, and a floating quality that's almost even more sublime than the original Liberty sessions. But the core Denny elements are also still in place – tinkling piano, island percussion, and a playful approach to familiar rhythms that never fails to please. The Latin is more of a nod to harder Latin modes than anything else, but it does make for a nice, if subtle change – one that works especially well when Denny's piano is out front, but compressed a bit in the mix. Titles include "Flying Down To Rio", "Ho Ba La La", "Something Latin", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Latin Village". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Jerry SunExotic Sounds Of Jerry Sun (red vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Bacchus Archives/Dionysus, 1962. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Sweet sweet vibes from Jerry Sun – a lesser-known exotic talent from the same generation as Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman – and one who's got an equally great sound as well! There's a surprising amount of jazz in the mix at times – especially when Sun really swings on the vibes – but the overall feel is more in the best exotic instrumental style of the period, particularly that small combo groove forged by Denny and Lyman at the start – with a mixture of vibes, piano, bass, and drums – plus some vocal bird calls as well. The material was recorded in 1962, but never issued at the time – and feels like some lost treasure from the early days of Liberty Records. Titles include "Soulsville", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Desafinado", "Tiki", "Quiet Village", and "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited numbered pressing, on sweet red vinyl – and a bonus download too!)
