✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandEn Concert – 29 Octobre 1969 ... CD
RTE (France), 1969. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Great live material from the best years of this amazing ensemble that included some of the finest American and European players of the 60s! The band's at its best here – wailing away in a firey live setting, recorded with high quality by Europe 1 Radio in 1969. Players include Tony Coe, Johnny Griffin, Benny Bailey, Art Farmer, Sahib Shihab, and Derek Humble – plus the great rhythm team of Jimmy Woode, Francy Boland, and Kenny Clarke! Most of the tunes are classics of the band – and titles include "All Through The Night", "Now Hear My Meaning", "New Box", "Volcano", "Box 702", "Sax No End", "Sonor", "The Jamfs Are Coming", "Doing Time", and "Evanescence".

Harold CorbinSoul Brother – The Driving New Jazz Piano Of Harold Corbin ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic set – and one that really lives up to the promise of its title! Harold Corbin is a hell of a driving pianist – one who grabs you right from the very first note, with the kind of soulful swing that might have been more at home on Chess/Argo Records at the time – especially in the company of Chicago pianists like Ramsey Lewis or John Young! Corbin's trio has as much of a sharp swing as those groups – with work from Spanky DeBrest on bass and Eddie Campbell on drums – both of whom can snap in the right groove at the right point, while Harold still gets plenty of space to stretch out and make magic on the keys! Titles include "Tunga", "Soul Brother", "JAMF's", "The Girl In The Window", "Caroline", and "Soul Sister". CD

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Mercury, 1983. Used ... $9.99
Magical mainstream Morricone – a sublime score for Sergio Leone's epic tale of gangland growth in the 20th century! Although penned for a wider audience, most of the best Morricone elements are still at play in this soundtrack – a great sense of space and timing, and some key use of spare, isolated instruments – including the pan flute of George Zamfir, an odd choice given the New York setting of the film, but one that comes off beautifully in the mix. Strings back up most of the tunes, but they're never too sleepy – just slightly sentimental, but in a really good way. Titles include "Childhood Memories", "Once Upon A Time In America", "Cockeye's Song", "Childhood Poverty", "Friends", "Photographic Memories", "Speakeasy", and "Poverty". CD also features some bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ Art BlakeyBackgammon ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from this overlooked Art Blakey stretch of the mid 70s – a time when the drummer was getting back to basics, and re-igniting his music with help from some key younger players! This set sparkles with sharp tenor from the great David Schnitter – already a powerhouse out of the box, and driven onto new heights by Blakey! Also present is pianist Albert Dailey, whose conception helps bring in some fresh sounds to the Jazz Messengers universe – alongside flute player Ladji Camara, who also vocalizes on one cut. Yoshio Suzuki handles bass, and old line trumpeter Bill Hardman comes in to round out the group – on titles that include "Uranus", "Third World Blues", "Namfulay", and "Backgammon". CD

✨✧ Johnny Griffin & Big Band LausanneBig Band Lausanne – A Monk's Dream ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1990. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tenor legend Johnny Griffin steps in as one of the key soloists here – working within the larger Big Band Lausanne, at a level that takes us back to his classic 60s European performances in the Clark Boland Big Band! This group isn't as groove-heavy as that one, but still has an equally nice sound – one that's heavy on tonal colors, directed by reedman Christian Gavillet – who plays both alto and baritone on the record, and solos a bit himself. Other soloists include Vincent Lachat on trombone, Thierry Lang on piano, William Holden on trumpet, Yvan Ischer on alto, and Antoine Ogay on bass – all great musicians who really step out nicely from the bigger ensemble. Griffin has solos on three of the album's eight tracks, and appears to be part of the larger lineup throughout – and titles include "Fifty Six", "The Jamfs Are Coming", "Rock Skippin At The Blue Note", "Isfahan", and "A Monk's Dream".

✨✧ VariousKill Bill Vol 1 – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Maverick, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
The soundtracks to Tarantino films have yet to go wrong – especially when it comes the mad mad mix of wild, pulpy pop obscurities and 60s/70s soundtrack bites! Kill Bill features tunes by as wide of a variety of performers as Nancy Sinatra, Luis Bacalov, Isaac Hayes, Bernard Herrmann, "Master Of The Pan Flute" Zamfir, tongue-in-cheek Japanese mod rockers The 5,6,7,8's and. . .of course, the one and only RZA (who more or less scored the film, although a full RZA soundtrack has yet to materialize.) As with the soundtracks to Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, Tarantino has done a terrific job of assembling wildly disparate types of music that still manage to work very well together in a single set, and it's generally held together by the mood established by RZA's ability to meld funky soul beats with Asian strings and sound bites. Includes Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazlewood's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)", "That Certain Female" by Charlie Feathers, "Twisted Nerve" by Bernard Herrmann, "Run Fay Run" by Isaac Hayes, "Greet Hornet" by Al Hirt, "The Flower Of Carnage" by Meiko Kaji, "Ode To Oren Ishii" and more by RZA, "Woo Hoo" by The 5,6,7,8's and more!
