Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta". LP, Vinyl record album
(On yellow vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film, and a bonus zine too!)

Naozumi YamamotoMinagoroshi No Kenjyu ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... About April 12, 2020
A fantastic noir soundtrack from Japan – one that's got a feel that's much deeper than some of the more familiar crime jazz modes you might expect! There's a hell of a pianist on the record – a player we can't name, because the notes are all in Japanese – but who really gets a lot of space, and a lot of solos on the record! The musician was never credited in the original film, but he fits in perfectly here with the score by Naozumi Yamamoto – who also composed the classic music for Branded To Kill – and most numbers here are really small combo jazz tracks, with an equally nice tenorist on some tracks too. All the notes and other details are in Japanese – so we can't tell you much more – but the whole thing's a real treasure if you're a fan of jazz soundtracks! CD

✨✧ Jean Claude VannierLa Bete Noire (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1983. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Very different work than usual for arranger/composer Jean Claude Vannier – not a slinky sexy soundtrack, but instead an all-acoustic set that features some fantastic jazzy touches – including work from saxophonist Philippe Mate, and vibes and percussion from Bernard Lubat! The 7" EP features two takes on the tune "Chasser La Bete Noire" – with lots of percussion and very driving solos from Mate – and the flipside features the more tuneful "Danse De La Bete Noire", which almost feels like a Nino Rota melody for Fellini! (Funky 45's, Soundtracks) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 1000 copies.)

✨✧ Daniel WhiteLa Comtesse Noire/Des Frissons Sur La Peau ... CD
Omega Productions (France), 1973/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two obscure soundtracks for equally obscure films directed by Euro-sex maestro Jess Franco – laid out here back to back on a single set! La Comtesse Noire has music that moves slowly, but with a nicely slinky vibe – and a fair bit of wordless female vocals that are maybe in an Edda Dell'Orso style, but also have some warmer currents too – almost jazzy at times, echoed by some jazzy paino work on one track – which makes a very surprising sound for a movie like this! Titles include "La Mort A La Bouche", "Eromantic Jazz", "Eromantic Lounge", "Eromantic Piano", "Vox Intima", and "La Comtesse Noire". Des Frissons Sur La Peau follows with more great wordless vocals – but also maybe has more piano lines in the lead, too – echoing a very nice main melody that's both sad-tinged and sexy – a nicely creepy blend! Titles include the funky "Viree Nocturne", plus a few variations on the "Des Frissons" theme – and some bonus material from the sessions. CD
(Limited to 200 copies.)
