✨✧ Sandro Brugnolini/CarniniBeat Drammatico, Underground, Pop Elettronic ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten short tracks – some tunes a cascading array of instrumentation, in a hip groove that's neither American jazz or soundtrack funk, but a special space of its own! Other tunes use an electronic approach that's years ahead of its time – as groovy as 60s analogue, but a lot darker, too – in ways that the rest of the world might not touch until the German new wave. The balance is almost even between swinging groovers and darker electronic cuts – and titles include "Grinta", "Azione CIA", "Scalo Clandestino", "Alambicco Cibernetico", "Strutture Generative", "Omicido Bianco", and "CIA Massacre".

Wilton FelderBullitt ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $49.99
Fantabuloso! Crusader Wilton Felder lays down a whole batch of groovy tracks, including the theme from the movie Bullitt. The whole album is very swingin and jazzy, but with as good of an edge as any Lalo Schifrin album from the time, and almost as great as the Bullitt soundtrack! Tracks include "The Split", "Theme From Bullitt", "Doing My Thing", "All Along The Watchtower", and "It's Just A Game, Love". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Hap MillerHap Miller – His Piano & Orchestra At Sun Valley ... LP
Stonegate, 1971. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A groovy set of lounge jazz from pianist Hap Miller – a longtime figure in the Sun Valley scene – where he recorded this album in the Duchin Room of the Sun Valley Lodge! There's a pretty syncopated approach to most numbers – snapping drums, romping piano, and a bit of clarinet – surprisingly groovy at times! (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy MorrowPoe For Moderns ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Although Buddy Morrow's best known for his more crime-jazz and Night Train jazz work, this album's got him sounding surprisingly great in a set of tracks dedicated to the work of Edgar Allen Poe! The feel of the music shifts wildly from track to track – with a few that feature Keith McKenna reciting work by Poe, in a Vincent Price-y style, and others that groove with more of a swinging jazz feel. Titles include "The Gold Bug", "Annabel Lee", "A Descent Into The Maelstrom", "The Raven", "Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Black Cat", and "The Pit & the Pendulum". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico O'FarrillMarried Well ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Latin big band arrangements of Chico O'Farrill meet the groovy production of late-60's Verve – and the result is an excellent album of groovy instrumentals that just won't quit! Chico's arranging skills are still in excellent shape here – and they're augmented by some very nice instrumentation that includes organs, Varitone sax, and electric guitar – from players who include Lennie Hambro, Seldon Powell, Grady Tate, Patato Valdes, and Candido. The record includes swinging Latin versions of 60s pop tracks like "A Man & A Woman", "Hip Hug Her", and "Georgy Girl" – as well as straighter Latin jazz on cuts like "Manteca", "Descarga Numero 1000", and "Llora Timbero". Very groovy, baby! (Latin, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Rune OfwermanCool – Piano With Voices ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A strange one for Argo, and certainly not in keeping with their usual soul jazz roster of recordings – but also a cool moody session recorded in Scandinavia, and which features the icy piano of Rune Ofwerman, backed by a chorus of voices, for a floating dreamy sound that slightly hints at the Singers Unlimited, and other European vocal groups from the 60s. Titles include "Mellow Cool", "Bossa Nova Sueca", "Ortego Bossa Nova", and "M-83". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has heavy wear on the spine, some wrinkling and clear tape on the bottom seam, and a wide piece of masking tape at the opening.)

Santo Rei BrazileirosBossa Nova ... LP
Diplomat, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of those fake bossa albums, the kind that came out on a dime-store/department-store label, with a phoney group, and the letters BOSSA NOVA in big type on the top! However, despite some dubious origins, the record actually has some nice bossa groovers, especially a few that feature a bigger jazzy ensemble, with tight guitar rhythms, and a nice sax player in the lead. These cuts include "Sazella De Rio", "Promenade Of Sao Paulo", "Sweet Sugar", "Sugar Loaf", and "Desarama" – all of which are pretty darn great, and worth getting the record for!

✨✧ Tom ScottHair To Jazz – A Groovy Jazz & Pop Musical Experience ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Reedman Tom Scott always gives us something groovy – especially in his early years, when he could effortlessly blend together jazz and soul, funk and rock, and really come up with something new and unique! Here, Tom's in the best mode of his early work on Impulse Records – serving up one of our favorite versions ever of Galt MacDermot's music for Hair, done with a wickedly sharp groove all the way through! The combo here is a quartet with a great flair for unusual timings, arrangements, and instrumentation – and in addition to Scott's unusual phrasings on tenor, soprano sax, and saxcello (used with a bit of Echoplex!), Roger Kellaway plays piano with some great bell-like tones, alongside drums from John Guerin and bass from Chuck Domanico. Many numbers are quite jazz-based, with very open and hip solo work that recalls Scott's Rural Still Life album – and titles include "Easy To Be Hard", "Where Do I Go", "Hair", "Be In", "The Flesh Failures", and "Aquarius".

✨✧ Spotnicks/Russ Garcia/Ron GoodwinOut Of This World (Music In Orbit/Fantastica) ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Space age pop galore – from a trio of very groovy sources! The Spotnicks start out the set with three cool guitar instrumentals – "Telstar", "Moonshot", and "Rocket Man" – done in their great blend of Ventures guitar modes and offbeat Joe Meek production styles – with a sound that's years ahead of its time! Next is the excellent album Out Of This World – from Brit arranger Ron Goodwin, with production by the legendary George Martin! The album was billed as Music In Orbit here in the US – and is 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 that would befit a high-end 50s sci-fi soundtrack – made even better by the excellent cover, which features a beautiful purple painting of a rocket blasting off of a planet in space. The whole thing's perhaps a bit more romantic than spooky, but the mood changes nicely from track to track to keep things fresh. Titles include "The Moon", "The Venus Waltz", "Mercury Gets The Message", "The Sun", "Jumping Jupiter", and "Martians On Parade". Last up is Russ Garcia's Fantastica – one of the space-age bachelor pad electronic classics! Russ Garcia was mostly a jazz arranger in his day – but he does a good job of scoring some moody sci-fi tracks for this set – mixing full orchestrations with some great electronics handled by Ted Keep, all in a format that replicates a journey through the universe – with stops at lots of unusual galaxies along the way! The album's got a great mix of complicated strings and woodwinds, which offset the spooky electronics nicely – and although playful, the record also represents some of Garcia's most serious scoring on record. Titles include "Into Space", "Nova", "Monster's Of Jupiter", "Red Sands Of Mars", and "Moon Rise". CD
