Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99 31.99
A much-needed look at the untapped musical legacy of Eden Ahbez – the west coast mystic who's best remembered for delivering the song "Nature Boy" to Nat King Cole (legendarily walking in barefooted during a recording session!) – but who also made a range of other great music ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Manny AlbamDrum Feast ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great one from arranger Manny Albam – heavy on drums, but with some nice exotic touches too! No players listed – but we're guessing it's a pretty hip lineup! (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Ronnie AldrichDestination Love ... LP
Phase 4/London, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from Brit Easy pianist Ronnie Aldrich – filled with groovy late 60s tunes, and handled with some slightly funky and mod-styled backings that make the album groove a lot more than most of Ronnie's other work! The set's played by Ronnie and his "two ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herb AlpertBrass Are Comin' ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A really sweet riff on western soundtrack styles by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, though still in Herb's breezy 60s style – wonderful stuff, and a set that's a bit overlooked in his classic A&M canon! The way the bright and sunny Herb Alpert jazzy pop instrumental style melds so ... read more CD

A&M/Herb Alpert, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Late 60s brilliance from the legendary Herb Alpert – one of a few key records that has him reinventing his style for a whole new generation! Herb name-checks Gil Evans, Miles Davis, and Ahmad Jamal in the notes – and he's definitely opening up the style of his arrangements here – ... read more CD

Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... $4.99
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or ... read more CD

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassBeat Of The Brass ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1968. Used ... $5.99
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven ... read more CD

Herb Alpert's first-ever album – a runaway hit that was the birthplace of so many groovy things – not just the start of the Tijuana Brass sound, also the birth of A&M Records!

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 ... read more CD

Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but ... read more CD

Herb Alpert & The TJBConey Island ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet mid 70s work from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – still at the height of their powers on Coney Island – rolling effortlessly between upbeat, jazzy numbers and more laidback and melodic ones! This one has a pretty big sound overall, all produced and arranged by Herb, who is ... read more CD

Herb Alpert & The TJBYou Smile – The Song Begins ... CD
A&M, 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod & OthersAxelrod Chronicles ... CD
Fantasy, Early 70s. Used ... $2.99
It's great to see that David Axelrod's finally getting his due – and this reissue of material from Fantasy is one of the first reissues of his work in the US! Most cuts here are much more jazz-based than Axelrod's higher-concept material under his own name for Capitol in the late 60s – ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more CD

Burt BacharachButch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid ... LP
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good ... $1.99
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ...

✨✧ Burt BacharachLiving Together ... LP
A&M, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
Quite possibly the greatest moment ever for Burt Bacharach – and that's saying a heck of a lot, considering the greatness of all of his work! The record's a slightly-overlooked gem from Burt's 70s years – a record that steps off the compressed sophistication of his best 60s work for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
