Herb AlpertBeyond ... LP
A&M, 1980. Sealed ... $7.99
An incredible later record from Herb Alpert – working in a soulful funky fusion mode that really is well beyond the style that made him famous in the 60s! We love the easy breezy 60s sound of Herb & The Tijuana Brass too, but he really stepped up his game in exciting ways on records like Rise, and he takes some even further, previously unexplored creative steps on Beyond, this aptly titled set! Plenty of smoothed out funky fusion grooves, especially on the first half of the record, but by the midway point he's also dabbling in Spanish guitar inflected melodies, bringing in some spacey electronics and sequencing, and other daring twists – but never compromises on the consistently groovy feel overall. Includes "Kamali", "The Continental", "Reach For The Stars", "Red Hot", "Beyond", "Keep It Goin'", "The Factory" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, lightly shopworn, with a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Herb AlpertRise ... LP
A&M, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became an end-of-the 70s instrumental anthem that seemed to drift out of speakers around the country. The rest of the album's pretty great too – built on the modes explored by Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, and other soulful fusion players of the 70s – but cast out with a bit more drama overall. Titles include the seminal jazz dance classic "Rotation" – plus "Rise", "Street Life", "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)", "1980", "Angelina", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The TJBYou Smile – The Song Begins ... LP
A&M, 1974. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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 few quiet years. He's also starting to bring in the tighter, soul-based rhythmic sensibility he would more fully explore in the years to come! Bright, wonderful work – with a Bacharach arrangement on "I Might Frighten Her Away", Lani Hall vocals on "Save The Sunlight", and loads of great tunes including "Fox Hunt", "Legend Of The One Eyed Sailor", "Promises, Promises", "Last Tango In Paris", "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Dida" and more.

Merry ClaytonBeautiful Scars ... LP
Motown/Ode, 2021. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A really strong return to form for the legendary Merry Clayton – an album recorded in the wake of an accident that nearly took her life, and seemed to unlock a whole new level of spirituality in her music – presented here on an album that's the first we've seen in Motown's gospel series in quite a long time! That placement is fitting, though, as the presentation here is very classic – maybe not 70s styled, but more in the 90s blend of gospel and soul used by a few key artists who had huge crossover success – spearheaded here by Lou Adler and Terry Young in the studio, the latter of whom plays organ on the record – amidst other instrumental work that includes a trumpet solo from Herb Alpert, two tenor solos from Gerald Albright, and an unusual posthumous solo from 1971 from Curtis Amy. Merry's clearly the star of the show, though – soaring out with her legendary vocal charms – on titles that include "Room At The Altar", "He Made A Way", "A Song For You", "Beautiful Scars", "Love Is A Mighty River", and the "Ooh Child Medley".

Lani HallSun Down Lady ... LP
A&M, 1972. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The beautiful first solo album by Lani Hall – recorded after years of work with Sergio Mendes in the Brasil 66 group – and done in a style that certainly reflects her great vocals with that ensemble, yet which also expands her sound tremendously! The set was arranged and produced by Herb Alpert in a spare, almost folksy style that still has some sweet LA touches – and the album's worth it alone for the leadoff cut – a version of Lesley Duncan's "Love Song", done in a gently grooving mode that's got a real folk-funk feel! The set's also got a great version of "We Could Be Flying" – and other tracks include "Ocean Song", "Vincent", "Come Down In Time", and "You". LP, Vinyl record album
