✨✧ Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... CD
Verve, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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) CD

✨✧ VariousFurther In Flight Entertainment – Music From Around The World & Beyond ... CD
Deram (UK), 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fab Karminsky Brothers follow up their first great selection of groovy and easy tunes from the vaults of Polygram with this excellent second set that includes wonderful stuff that's every bit as great as the first one! Like the first volume, this one's got some great bits from the UK and Euro albums of the 60s – which we never come across over here at all. Titles include "Yellow World" by J Girls, "Soul House" by Max Gregor, "Sort Of Soul" by Birds & Brass, "Brass N Ivory" by Tony Osborne, "Baby Let's Dance Together" by Kittu, "Teenie Weenie Boppie" by France Gall, "Soul Lady" by Don Sebesky, and lots lots more. Very groovy looking, and thoroughly satisfying all the way through, with mostly cuts you can't find anywhere else! 20 great tracks! (Funky Compilations, Now Sound) CD

Peter NeroDisco Dance & Love Themes Of The 70s/Say Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1975. Used ... $4.99
A pair of 70s albums from Peter Nero – finally both out on CD! On Disco Dance & Love Themes Of The 70s, Peter Nero hits the disco years – and uses the groove to really transform his sound in a mighty great way! That bold piano that Peter put down in the 60s is still right out front in the mix – but it gets some soaring support from arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux, who adds in just the right blend of soul and strings to give the whole record a sweetly clubby sound! The approach is way better than most pop-disco modes of the time – thanks to the deeper pedigree of DeCoteaux – and the strong Nero piano lines really keep things moving, even in an instrumental mode. Titles include nice versions of "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Love's Theme", "Superstition", and "Theme From Emmanuelle" – plus a nice original called "Soul Ballet", a great funky number! Say Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose features some surprisingly great Fender Rhodes from Peter Nero – an artist who's normally just associated with acoustic piano! Nero didn't touch electric keys that often, but when he did the results were always great – these pointed, punctuated lines that had the same energy as his acoustic work, but with a very different vibe. Much of the record still features regular piano – mixed with nice charts from Nero and Bhen Lanzaroni – but the electric elements really make the whole thing great, and titles include "Woman Of The World", "A Million To One", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Loves Me Like A Rock", and "Daydream".

VariousClassical Gassers – Pop Gems Inspired By The Great Composers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $15.99 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.

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".
