Danny Guglielmi/DenaAdventure In Sound ... LP
Tops, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
A compelling little set from Danny Guglielmi – a mix of weird instrumental numbers and some straighter vocal ones that feature singing by the lovely Dena! The album's somewhere between offbeat jazz and bachelor pad territory – and the album features early tape experiments that have Danny playing bass, guitar, piano, and violin – overdubbing each of them in ways that sometimes used odd effects to create some really weird sounds! The album's never totally over the top, but still pretty cool overall – and Dena's vocals are nicely light and sing-song. Titles include "Mosquito Festival", "Na Wa Da Ha", "Jealous", "AEIOU", "It's So Peaceful In The Country", "Hot Schottish", "Firelight Reverie", and "Bullfrog". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. NOTE – Cover is lighty stained on the bottom 4 inches, with flaking/stuck-on paper on front & back.)

Horst JankowskiStill More Genius of Jankowski ... LP
Mercury, 1966. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Fantastic piano work from the very groovy Horst Jankowski – an artist who's really stepping into his own with this sweet mid 60s album! The set still follows the balance of electric bass and hard piano sounds from Horst – but it also fleshes out the music in a really great way, by adding in these lovely larger backings from the Erwinh Lehn orchestra – every bit as full of color as on their classic album for MPS! The Lehn touch is a great one – and makes the whole thing really sound wonderful – with that balance of tonal complexity and straightforward groove that made some of the MPS/Saba productions so great. Titles include "Violets In March", "Elmer's Tune", "Black Forest Holiday", "Shadow of Your Smile", "Danke Danke", "Sir Scotch Whiskey", and "Let's Live a Little". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Henry ManciniWarm Shade Of Ivory ... LP
RCA, 1969. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Lovely late nite Mancini! The album has Mr. M's tinkling piano set amidst dark moody arrangements that bank the piano in warm washes of strings and light lilting rhythms – all moving at a slow somber pace that's perfect for a summer night with the lights down low, the windows open, relaxing in a big easy chair with a drink while the breeze and the sounds of the summer waft over the room. The record is subtle, but a wonderful example of Mancini's continuing instrumental genius. Titles include "Watch What Happens", "Day In The Life Of A Fool", "Cycles", "Meditation", "When I Look In Your Eyes", and "Moment To Moment". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Gary McFarlandIn Sound/Soft Samba ... CD
Verve/Ace (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of fantastic albums from vibes master and genius arranger Gary McFarland – back to back on a single CD! First up is The In Sound – one of the grooviest albums of the 60s – a sublime blend of jazz, bossa, and easy – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The album's probably the most perfect realization of the unique groove that Gary McFarland was going for back in the day – a mix of vibes, whistling, and wordless vocals, supported by some gently funky rhythms that use a fair bit of electric bass to underscore the groove! The lineup here is wonderful – with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Gabor Szabo on guitar, Grady Tate on drums, and Sadao Watanabe making a rare 60s US appearance on flute and tenor sax. Gary blends these instrumental elements perfectly for the record – and comes up with a completely unique sound that can only be described as "McFarlandy"! Amazing cuts include "Fried Bananas", "Bloop Bleep", and "Over Easy" – but the whole album's incredible, and other tracks include "The Sting Of The Bee", "Wine & Bread", "Here I Am", "The Hills Of Verdugo", and "The Moment Of Truth". Soft Samba is a dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in a melodic and lovely kind of way! The whole thing's incredibly charming, and even familiar tunes come across sounding quite different in McFarlands hands. Titles include "From Russia With Love", "More", "Emily", "La Vie En Rose", "The Love Goddess", and even a groovy take on "I Want To Hold Your Hand". For you true swingers, the cover includes directions for mixing a "Soft Samba Cocktail" (courtesy Spanish Sherry Institute)! (Jazz, Now Sound) CD

Sam PottleCount Counts ... LP
Sesame Street, 1975. Very Good ... $1.99
One of the coolest of the early Sesame Street records! The format is a bit similar to that of Multiplication Rock – in that The Count sings a number of songs, with help from others – about numbers and counting and addition. The music changes to fit the modes of the songs – never totally funky, but with some nice 70s changes at times. The whole thing's a pretty darn groovy way to learn – and there's plenty of cool spoken bits that would be ripe for pulling out as samples! Titles include "It's A Lovely Eleven Morning", "The Count's Weather Report", "Counting Is Wonderful", "Country Six", "Beep", "Four Big Lions", "The 3 Song", and "The Song Of The Count".

✨✧ George ShearingSatin Brass ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A perfect title for this lovely little gem from George Shearing – a set that mixes his familiar piano, vibes, and guitar with some bigger brass arrangements – yet all in a way that still shimmers with the sheen of satin! Shearing was smooth before anyone else could lay claim to the word – coming up with modes that really transformed jazz and other instrumental music in the 60s – perfectly illustrated on a record like this, which is light years away from any expectations you might have about a "with brass" session. Titles include "First Floor Please", "Night Flight", "A Ship Without A Sail", "Deep Night", "Just Plain Bill", "I Could Write A Book", and "Sleepy Manhattan". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Mateusz SwiecickiHalo Wenus (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dig space age sounds? Then you're going to find plenty to love here – in a record that's filled with sweet keyboard instrumentals, odd electronics, and lots of lovely little melodies – all brought together in a record that easily transports the listener to the planet Venus! The approach here is a bit like some of the best German sci fi soundtrack work by Peter Thomas and Ingfried Hoffmann at the end of the 60s – but also has some of the playful electronics of the German new wave from later years, particularly the work of Der Plan – but there's also something really special to the set, which is both experimental and groovy at the same time – recorded in relatively obscurity for Polish Radio in the early 70s, and finally getting proper release! Instrumentation includes this wonderful blend of Arp Odyssey and Yamaha Organ – instruments used alongside more familiar bass and drums, which are focused enough to create the right sort of rhythms for most tracks – never making for overdone groovers or too-fast tunes, with a pace that's maybe in the best Perrey-Kingsley mode. Titles include "Gin Mill On Crater", "Hello Venus", "Space Jam", "Electro Cats", "War Of Giants", "Sunbird Waltz", "Galactic Bridge", and "Astro Clock". CD features two bonus tracks too!

✨✧ Toots ThielemansContrasts ... LP
Command, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Toots at his grooviest – working in a nice and light setting that brings out the best of his unique style! Don't be put off by the fact that this one's on the easy listening label Command, because it's got a very jazzy finish – and really allows Toots the space to inflect his sound at levels that he often never got to do freely until later 70s sides. The tracks are all short, and include some familiar covers – but Toots transforms them with magical work on guitar, harmonica, and whistle! Titles include "Sweet & Lovely", "So Nice", "Big Boy", "Yesterday & Today", and "Bluesette". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album
