✨✧ Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
Stan Getz meets Burt Bacharach – a heavenly combination that brings together two of our most favorite musical talents of the 60s! And while we're at it, we'd also like to mention a third – Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans, who handles all the backdrops for this set – bringing in a groove that you might not expect for tunes by Burt Bacharach – not exactly Charles Stepney at Cadet, but not far, either – a perfect setting for the sparkling, lyrical tone that Getz was hitting at this point in his career. The tunes are familiar, but the blend of talents really keeps things fresh – and with extra contributions from Herbie Hancock on piano and Jim Hall on guitar, you can bet there's plenty going on here. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Windows Of The World", "House Is Not A Home", "Walk On By", and "Trains & Boats & Planes". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousClassical Gassers – Pop Gems Inspired By The Great Composers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A really cool set of classic pop songs – and we mean that in more ways than one! The tracks here all borrow a tune from much older classical music compositions – but then turn the material into a springboard for a swinging set of 60s arrangements – music that moves between raw instrumentals to sweet girl group pop – with stops along the way for a bit of soul, garage, and other modes as well! In fact, some of these cuts are so successful with their classical themes, they've often come to be better-known than the originals – at least by folks like us, who were raised more on the sound of the radio than the symphony hall. And if you're worried about things being too sleepy, don't – as the package is really lively, and has all the best punch and sparkle of the Golden Age Of American Pop series from Ace – but maybe even more, given the weirdness of some of these tunes. Titles include "Sabre Dance" by Love Sculpture, "A Groovy Kind Of Love" by The Mindbenders, "Attack" by The Toys, "Asia Minor" by Kokomo, "Goodbye Cruel World" by James Darren, "Nut Rocker" by B Bumble & The Stingers, "Mountain Of Our Love" by Lesley Miller, "She Wears My Ring" by Roy Orbison, "Swan Lake" by The Cats, "My Hero" by Renee St Clair, "Stranger In Paradise" by The Galens, "Peter & The Wolf" by Harpers Bizarre, "Whiter Shade Of Pale" by Shorty Long, and "The Wedding" by Julie Rogers.

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyAfro-Harping ... CD
Cadet/Verve, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest records ever – a sublime blend of African percussion, soulful orchestrations, and Dorothy Ashby's amazing electric harp! By the time of this landmark album, Dorothy had been knocking around the jazz world for a number of years, but it wasn't until she hooked up with Richard Evans at Cadet Records that her sound really began to cook – breaking down genres and expectations in the trademark style of the best late 60s sides from the Chicago underground. The record's got a bit of funk, a bit of jazz, and a heck of a lot of soul – and the setting works perfectly for Dorothy's harp, giving it a lot more room to work around than some of her smaller jazz combo albums. The album includes two great originals – "Soul Vibrations" and "Afro-Harping" – both of which have a nice funky edge, and a groovy soulful bounce – and other tunes include "Lonely Girl", "Life Has Its Trials", "Look Of Love", "Come Live With Me", and a great version of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower".

✨✧ Bobby BryantJazz Excursion Into Hair ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy! This album's a great soul jazz take on the Hair score – led by trumpeter Bobby Bryant, who was turning out some very nice stuff in the sweet pop soul jazz style of the LA scene of the 60s. The group is great – and Paul Humphrey's on drums, Joe Sample's on electric piano, and Bud Shank plays flute – and the record has that cool groovy jazz-meets-something else sound that you'll find on some of the hipper Impulse and Flying Dutchman albums from the late 60s. Titles include "Be In", "Colored Spade", "Hair", and "Good Morning Sunshine". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Soulful StringsBest Of The Soulful Strings ... LP
Cadet, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 LP set compiling some of the greatest tracks by this legendary Chicago studio assemblage led by the great bassist/arranger Richard Evans. The track list is a perfect example of the sound that they did so well, and is more proof that Chicago had one of the most interesting soul scenes in the world. Cuts include "Burning Spear", "Zambezi", "The Stepper", "Soul Prelude", "Groovin", "Listen Here", and lots lots more! (Soul, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWarm ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic record from the late 60s years of Herb Alpert – a time when the trumpeter was really opening up his sound, and starting to hit some of the same cool styles of his other great acts on the A&M label! Gone are the trademark Cali-Mex arrangements of the early Tijuana Brass records – and in their place are these soaring, soulful styles that draw heavily from the late 60s changes in Brazilian music, American soundtracks, and jazz! Shorty Rogers helped a bit with the charts, and you can definitely hear his cool touches in the mix – and the trumpet solos are nicely changed up from previous records too. Herb does a great job with Nilsson's excellent cut "Without Her", and the band grooves nicely on Brazil cuts "The Sea Is My Soil" and "Zazueira", plus "Pretty World", "To Wait For Love", "Sandbox", "Marjorine", and "The Continental".
