✨✧ Edson XGinga A Alma Do Futebol Brasileiro ... CD
Lua (Brazil), 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A creepy cover, but a really amazing batch of grooves – one that blends rootsy Brazilian percussion with elements of dub, funk, and hip hop – originally recorded as the soundtrack for a documentary on football, but sounding plenty darn great here on its own! Edson X is at the helm of the record, but gets help from a number of other younger artists as well – and the album's awash in tight percussion jams, funky rhythms, stripped down grooves that are all surprisingly free of cliche! At times, there's a bit of the Trama-like blend of old and new going on – but the overall sound is much rougher and more rootsy, filled with live instrumentation and sometimes a bit of the noisier side of baile funk production. Titles include "Forro No Bar", "O Que E A Ginga", "Gingar Para Ser Feliz (Ginga mix)", "Aleluia (baile funk mix)", "O Craque", "A Hora Do Goi (swing guitar)", "Bonde Do Bem (live session)", and "Funk Da Vitoria (extended)".

✨✧ Grant GreenFinal Comedown - Original Soundtrack (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent lost funky soundtrack on Blue Note – their only one for years, and Grant Green's entry into the blacksploitation genre! The whole thing bristles with the kind of chunky, thumping percussive feel as the best funky soundtracks of the era – informed by the work of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, but with the deeper jazz feel that Green brings from his other Blue Note sides of the time! Some cuts are quite funky, particularly the opener, "Past, Present, and Future" with it's crisp trap, chicken scratch guitar and bongo driven beat. Others have more of a stripped-down dope instrumental feel – there's some sweet funky flute work on "Fathers Lament", and even a slight bossa groove creeps into the title track! The whole album's very nice, and it's very different than any of Grant Green's other work! Other titles include "Afro Party", Luana's Theme", "Slight Fear And Terror", and "Battle Scene".

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini Soundtracks (Early Movies/La Strada/Notti Di Cabiria/La Dolce Vita/8 1/2) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 5CD ... Just Sold Out!
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to grace the silver screen – an amazing performance supported here by key early work from Nino Rota. Rota's score is a mix of circus-like themes and darker moments – all delivered with a dynamic energy that's really wonderful – almost leaping out of the speakers at some points, then sliding into shimmering, watery depths at others. Titles include "Il Pranzo Di Nozze", "Tema Della Strada", "Gelsomina", "Il Bambino Malato", "Zampano Abbandona Gelsomina", and "Addio Del Matto". Next is Le Notti Di Cabiria – aka Nights Of Cabiria – a film of similar vintage, with an equally wonderful score by Rota! The music's a bit more lush this time around – fuller orchestrations at times, but always with that ear for an isolated melody amidst the larger body – that sense of personality that makes Rota's soundtracks so great. Titles include "Picnic Al Divino Amore", "L'Illusionista", "Il Trasloco", "Aspettando Giorgio", and "Le Notti Di Cabiria". La Dolce Vita is one of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". 8 1/2 is beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Last up is a special soundtrack – featuring works from very early films by Fellini – including Il Bidone, I Vitelloni, Un Agenzia Matrimoniale, Lo Sceicco Bianco, and La Grande Seduzione. CD
