✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaLook Of Love & The Sounds Of Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy album by Laurindo Almeida – one of his best bossa cookers in a swinging 60s mode! The album features lots of great acoustic guitar from Laurindo, but spun over fuller arrangements by Lex De Azvedo, Clare Fischer, and Dick Grove – all of whom get that right sort of jaunty, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's guitar is matched here with some lightly jazzy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterAfrican Jazz ... LP
Capitol/So Far Out (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... On January 6, 2015 (delayed)
One of the greatest Les Baxter records, and one that's got just about everything you'd ever want! Plas Johnson plays tenor, and his solos are right out front, and recorded beautifully.

Les BaxterBroadway '61 ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good ... $5.99

✨✧ Les BaxterConfetti ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and ... read more CD

✨✧ Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and ... read more CD

✨✧ Les BaxterJewels Of The Sea ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rarest Les Baxter albums – and one of the best! The theme is undersea exotic – and Les uses a swirling mix of strings, piano, organ, flute, and electronics to create a haunting sound that makes you feel like you've discovered some hidden grotto under the sea, filled with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Savage stuff! This is one of Les Baxter's greatest albums ever – and it's right on a par with African Jazz, which uses a similar formula: Plas Johnson's up front playing gutsy tenor, and Les is behind, working a large group of exotica players into a tribal frenzy of mellow grooves. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has some seam splitting.)

Les BaxterKaleidoscope ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Les Baxter still pretty much in his older sweeter mode – recorded slightly before the exotica years, but in a manner that still shows him as a very capable arranger and conductor. Titles include "Atlantis", "Tropicana", "Julie", "Cornflakes", and " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Les BaxterMidnight On The Cliffs ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Dreamy work from Les Baxter – featuring his chorus and orchestra over string-heavy arrangements that match the midnight sea setting on the cover. The work's a lot more flowery than his exotic recordings for Capitol – but it's got an insanity that we find quite appealing, especially in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ron GoodwinMusic In Orbit ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album of space-age easy listening! The album features no electronics, but Goodwin's use of soaring strings is somewhere between the Fantastic Planet soundtrack and some of the later moogy albums in the 60s. Scoring is richly sophisticated, with a complicated approach to the material ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dr Samuel J HoffmanMusic For Peace Of Mind (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
Quite possibly the best of the early theremin records for Capitol by Dr Samuel J Hoffman – a moody mix of electronics and orchestrations, with a sound that's incredibly eerie! The tunes on the set were all written by Harry Revel – with titles alone that really get at the mood of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 10" pressing. Vinyl and cover are nice.)
