A&M, 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
Nice one from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – working with arranger Quincy Jones! You Smile – The Song Begins comes at a pretty interesting point in which Herb was still working in the Spanish-inflected, jazzy instrumental groove of earlier years – but in a fresh way after a ... read more CD

Warren BarkerMusic Of Desire – The Exotic Rhythms Of Warren Barker ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful work from Warren Barker – one of the lesser-known exotica talents at the start of the 60s – but only because he was also working in a variety of other instrumental modes at the time! Barker's charts are always nicely playful – and that approach also holds true here ... read more CD

Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness!

Two lesser-known instrumental albums from Percy Faith – issued here back to back on a single CD! Chinatown is from 1974 – and features a slight 70s twist on the Faith style of the 60s – maybe a subtle dose of the big band modes that Maynard Ferguson was using on a few of the ... read more CD
