✨✧ Elmer BernsteinAva Collection (Walk On The Wild Side/Carpetbaggers/Caretakers/Baby The Rain Must Fall/To Kill A Mockingbird/Movie & TV Themes) ... CD
AVA/Intrada, 1962/1963/1964/1965. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s soundtracks from Elmer Bernstein – all originally issued by the indie Ava label, where Bernstein was one of the biggest stars! Elmer had already had a number of years experience working in Hollywood – including some classic late 50s scores that perfectly mixed jazz with larger orchestrations, in a style he explored even more fully on some of the best material here. Yet some of the other soundtracks show Bernstein's increasingly good ear for a dramatic moment – the kind of under-done passages that really had a way of doing a lot with just a little – lessons learned from jazz, then recast back onto larger arrangements, but without any of the Hollywood bombast of decades before. These moments really make the soundtracks sparkle – bits of illumination that resonate strongly throughout the 3CD passage, and draw some surprising links between all the different film scores presented within. The set features five full soundtrack albums – Walk On The Wild Side, The Carpetbaggers, The Caretakers, Baby The Rain Must Fall, and To Kill A Mockingbird – plus the additional Movie & TV Themes record by Bernstein.

✨✧ Cy ColemanTroublemaker – Original Soundtrack ... LP
AVA, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $16.99
A weird one – but a nice one! Side one features tunes composed by Cy Coleman for the film Troublemaker – mostly easy instrumentals, in the vein of Cy's regular work from the time, but with some nice soundtrack-y touches from time to time – with titles that include "Finale", "Chase", "Kidnap", "Love At First Sight", and "Denver's Theme". Better, though, is side two of the album – which features tracks from other films, supposedly in new versions. Includes "Man With The Golden Arm" and "Walk On The Wild Side" by Elmer Bernstein, "Here I Go Again" by China Lee with Dick Hazard, and "On The Street Where You Live" by Harry Betts.

Irene KralIrene Kral With The Junior Mance Trio (aka Better Than Anything) ... LP
AVA/DRG, 1963. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Great work by a great singer – the far under-recorded Irene Kral, a lovely lady who really bridges a number of different camps in the vocal jazz world! At one level, Irene's got the coolness of a Christy or Connor, but at another, she's got a more open, swinging, and soulful style – one that comes off with none of the hoke of Anita O'Day, and which is a perfect balance between class, cool, and easy going honesty. The trio of Junior Mance provides the backings, and titles include "Better Than Anything", "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Passing By", "No More", "Nobody Else But Me", "This Is Always", and "It's A Wonderful World".

David BowieCracked Actor – Live Los Angeles 74 ... CD
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic live set from David Bowie – recorded on tour in 1974 for the Diamond Dogs album – and a very much at the height of his mid 70s powers! The album's very well-recorded, and the performances are great – not muddy mixes of hits, but razor-sharp readings that crackle with the excitement of the live arena – with some moments that stretch out nicely, and fantastic response from the audience – who are clearly thrilled to be part of this amazing moment. Bowie brings back a few moments from the Ziggy period, but he's also looking ahead with Thin White Duke energy too – as the group is tight and soulful, and features David Sanborn on alto, Mike Garson on keyboards, Earl Slick and Carlos Alomar on guitars, Pablo Rosario on congas, and backing vocals from Luther Vandross and Ava Cherry! Titles include an especially great version of "Aladdin Sane" – plus "1984", "Moonage Daydream", "Sweet Thing/Candidate", "Cracked Actor", "All The Young Dudes", "Jean Genie", "Time", "Diamond Dogs", "It's Gonna Be Me", "John I'm Only Dancing", "Changes", "Knock On Woood", and "Space Oddity".

✨✧ Throttle Elevator Music feat Kamasi WashingtonRetrorespective ... LP
Wide Hive, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not a retrospective of the music of Throttle Elevator Music – as you might mistake from the title – but instead a fresh new album that features the group working tremendously with the mighty Kamasai Washington! Washington isn't just a guest, but a key member of the group – and he really helps to push forward that deepening sound they've developed since their first release – a huge evolution that only gets better when Kamasai's on board. Washington plays tenor on the record, and contributes songs and arrangements – and some of the vibe of the set is maybe a small combo take on territory he explored on The Epic album – proud and righteous, with a very uplifting spirit. Other group members include Erik Jekabson on flugelhorn and trumpet, Ava Mendoza on guitar, Matt Mongtomery on bass and piano, and Thomas McCree on drums – and producer Gregory Howe also contributes songs and arrangements. Titles include "Flux & Solder", "Liminality", "Playing The Alleyway", "February Drift", "Subtract Limited", and "Rapid Rotation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSlava – The Art Of Rostropovich (3CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to the genius of Mstislav Rostropovich – one of the greatest cellists of the 20th Century, and a musician who really helped transform the role of the instrument in classical music! This package brings together music from three decades of recording – some of Rostropovich's key moments, in a 3CD set that features extended presentation of the material – which includes Dvorak's Concerto For Cello & Orchestra In B Minor and Tchaikovsky's Variations On A Rococo Theme For Cello & Orchestra – both recorded in 1968 with Herbert Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. CD2 features a performance of Saint Saens Concerto For Cello & Orchestra No 1 with Grigory Stolyarov conducting the Soviet Symphony Orchestra Of The All-Union Radio, followed by duets with pianist Martha Agerich on Chopin's Sonata For Piano & Cello In G Minor, and duets with Rudolf Serkin on Brahms' Sonata For Piano & Cello No 1 In E Minor. CD 3 features a beautiful performance of Alexander Glazunov's Chant Du Menestral with the Boston Symphony, conducted by Seiji Ozawa, a reading of Tchaikovsky's Andante Cantabile that has Rostropovich conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, and other works by Chopin, Schumann, Rachmaninov, Borodin, Paganini, Popper, and Prokofiev.

Bee Gees, Tavares, Yvonne Elliman, & OthersSaturday Night Fever (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
RSO/Capitol, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation". 2CD deluxe edition features Serban Ghenea Mixes of "Stayin Alive", "Night Fever", "How Deep Is Your Love", and "You Should Be Dancin".

Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked treasure from the great Jorge Ben – an album recorded between the fame of his "Taj Mahal" hit and Africa Brasil classic – and a set that's every bit as wonderful as those two records! There's a tight, choppy groove to most of the set – that mix of samba, soul, and currents of American funk that Jorge created in his music – turned here towards some of the unusual themes that showed up on his Tabua De Esmeralda album, but maybe given a bit more punch, too – so that even without the benefit of language, the vocals and grooves on the set are completely captivating to a global audience! There's loads of fresh sounds here – some real under-discovered gems from Jorge's key 70s years – and titles include "Cuidado Com O Bulldog", "Zagueiro", "Para Ouvir No Radio (Luciana)", "Jorge De Capadocia", "Dumingaz", "Se Segura Malandro", and "Jesualda".

Chico BuarqueCaravanas ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
That's an aging Chico Buarque on the cover, still looking cooler than anyone else around – and sounding the same on this wonderful record! Buarque was one of the first of an important new generation of Brazilian songwriters to emerge in the 60s – and unlike some of the others, who've maybe lost steam over the years, Chico continues to grow and evolve – really shaping his music to different modes as the years go on, and never failing to give us his all with each new recording! This set's got a beautifully personal vibe – mostly Buarque's still-wonderful voice alongside his own acoustic guitar – augmented by other instrumentation, but in ways that still really leave the master at the forefront – with a level of songwriting and performance that's completely mesmerizing. Titles include "Tua Cantiga", "Massarandupio", "Dueto", "As Caravanas", "Desaforos", "Casualmente", and "Jogo De Bola". CD

Budos BandMaelstrom/Avalanche ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of aural psych funk severe weather events from the mighty Budos Band! "Maelstrom" kicks off with swirling bit of organ, presaging the funky onslaught to come – with soulful horn blasts and and impeccably rhythmic sensibility that keeps it from flying out of control. "Avalanche" brings a lot of heavy, fuzzy guitar to the table, but still rooted in instrumental funk, via the amazing horn section, keyboards and bass groove. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nelson CavaquinhoNelson Cavaquinho (1973) ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $6.99
Beautiful later work from Nelson Cavaquinho – a spare album that's filled with rootsy vocals, jaunty guitar, and some nice percussive backings! Cavaquinho's vocals alone are enough to sell the set – seeming to come from the earth itself, with a timeless feel that's really amazing. And even though he's supported by backing singers on a few tracks, he still gets in enough of his own voice to make the album more than his own. Titles include "Mulher Sem Alma", "Vou Partir", "Folhas Secas", "Juizo Final", "Rugas", "Pode Sorrir", "Visitia Triste", "O Bem E O Mal", and "Rei Vadio". CD

A collection of Gal Costa's work from the 70s, plus a few added tracks from the early 80s. Most of this material was recorded in the post-Tropicalia years, but it's still strong stuff – showing Gal as one of Brazil's best vocalists of the time. Titles include "O Bater De Tambor", "Bloco De Brazer", "E Luxo So", "Festa Do Interior", "Grande Final", "Estamos Ai", "Massa Real", "Balance", "Canta Brasil", "Pegando Fogo", and "Olhos Verdes".
