Burt BacharachBurt Bacharach (1971) ... LP
A&M, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Insanely wonderful work by Bacharach – in a way that we can hardly begin to describe (but we'll certainly try!) By the time this one was recorded – 1971 – Burt's reputation as a songwriter and arranger were so firmly established that he had an incredible amount of freedom in the studio. Here, working with tunes that were mostly well-worn, plus a new one or two – Burt comes up with an amazingly complex set of arrangements, opening up his tunes like little flowers, focusing on a particular instrumental tendril, and drawing it out into incredible lines of melody and color. Proof of this is the album's extended version of "Wives & Lovers", or its suite for orchestra, entitled "And The People Were With Her". All tracks are great – from Burt's intimate vocal on "Hasbrook Heights", to the jangly instrumentation of "Freefall", to the completely recast versions of hits like "One Less Bell To Answer", "April Fools", and "Mexican Divorce".

Bobby ChristianJazz Class ... LP
Orion, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A fantastic album of long jazzy grooves – one of the rare sides cut for the tiny Orion label, which featured jazz dance instruction records for the work of choreographer Gus Giordano! The set is a great one – and features 4 long tracks that go way beyond the usual Orion sides. Percussionist Bobby Christian leads a trio on the tunes – playing only percussion, working melody out of drums in a manner that's in keeping with Giordano's hip dance technique. The whole album's great – percussive, but also nice and grooving, and never sleepy. Titles include "Jazz Walks", "Jazz Port De Bras", and "Jazz Isolations". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has split top seams, a half split bottom seam, and a stain on the bottom inch.)

Martin DennyPrimitiva ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of Martin Denny's greatest albums – thanks to some extra special added elements! For the record, Denny's classic quartet is augmented by a wealth of odd added percussion – including gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, and "chromatic bamboo"! All of these elements take Denny's exotica sound way further than ever before – and if that's not enough, the legendary Tak Shindo plays a bit of Koto on the record too! Titles include "M'Bira", "Burma Train", "Kalua", "M'Gambo Mambo", and "Mau Mau". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)
