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 ... $29.99
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some aging and splitting on the top seam.)

✨✧ Annita RaySlow Glow (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
AVA/Muzak (Japan), 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Annita Ray's vocals are certainly the main attraction here – but we're as equally in love with the backings from Harry Betts! The album's got a great sense of balance between the singer and the band going on – one that takes Ray's mix of breathy and warbling vocals, and focuses it nicely through Betts' blend of woodwinds, light strings, and gentle rhythms – a mode that has lots of bright notes that sparkle out and help illuminate the music, almost creating a sense of counterpoint with the vocals. Annita's the kind of singer who might falter in some other kind of setting, but she really sounds great here – with just a slight undercurrent of the blue-toned modes of Brenda Lee, yet not nearly as overdone. Titles include "I'll Be Around", "Oh You Crazy Moon", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "For All We Know", "This Time The Dream's On Me", and "Slow Glow". CD

Charlie BarnetCharlie Barnet ! ? ! ? ... LP
Choreo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Later work from Charlie Barnet, but a set that really cooks nicely overall – still with the strong sax tones of earlier years, but also with a groovier sort of sparkle that marks the 60s date of the session! The tunes are short, but Charlie gets plenty of space to do his thing – leading off boldly with a great sense of tone, and blowing with some surprisingly inventive lines as the set rolls on. There's a bit of organ in the mix – uncredited, like the rest of the players – and titles include "Coachella Blue", "Mood Indigo", "Leapin At The Lincoln", "East Side West Side", "The Great Gong Of Hong Kong", and "Tappin At The Tappa". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... CD
Wide Hive, 2016. 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". CD

Luis BacalovLa Piu Grande Rapina Del West/L'Oro Dei Bravados ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1967/1969. Used ... $11.99
2 spaghetti western soundtracks back to back – both written by the Italian composer Luis Bacalov! The best of these is L'Oro Dei Bravados, which features 9 tracks that mix together conventional guitar-based western styles, with some quirkier Italian soundtrack elements that make the music sound very cool. The score for La Piu Grande Rapina Del West is darker and sparer, with a tense sound that's more in the suspense mode. Titles include "Mistero", "Preludio Alla Rapina", "Pistoleros Per Una Rapina", "Tensione E Amore", "Minaccia", "Siesta", "Piccolo Valzer", and "Duello". CD

Budos BandMaelstrom/Avalanche ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
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

John CacavasAirport 1975 ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Swirling strings galore – but served up with just the right mix of sex and drama to fit the spirit of this second Airport film! The music is a lot more complex than the first time around – and sometimes has these spare dramatic moments that echo European thrillers of the period, mixed with some even hipper numbers that show some cool colors coming together in this brilliant tapestry that works very well apart from the screen. A few numbers echo earlier bossa modes – including a take on "How Insensitive" and "A Man & A Woman" – and other tunes include the great "Airport 1975 Theme", plus "Montage", "Alexander's Death", "In Flight Collision", and "Interludium".

✨✧ Nuno CanavarroPlux Quba ... LP
Moikai/Drag City, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A record that's as unusually obtuse as the image on the cover – a very weird amalgam of electronics and sounds from Portuguese experimentalist Nuno Canavarro – recorded in the late 80s, and with a style that's different from both the avant electronic and industrial worlds of the time! At points, Canvarro shares some of the subtle sonic sensibilities of artists like Hafler Trio or Zoviet France at their best – that way of blending textures and tones beyond recognition, into something greater than their parts. Yet other moments are more melodic, and have sharper electric passages bringing a redemptive side to the record – almost like the singing of a bird on a bleak landscape – although the record itself is far from bleak, even at its darkest moments. A beautiful bit of sonic poetry – one that's achieved legendary status over the years! LP, Vinyl record album

Cavanaugh (Open Mike Eagle & Serengeti)Time & Materials ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2016. Used ... $6.99
Two of post millennium indie hip hop's most distinctive rhyme stylists – Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti – teaming up as Cavanaugh, and it's as inspired of a project as we'd hoped! There's a dark, hazy mood here – particularly in the thick waves of synth in the production, but the rhymes bring that vibe, too – which creative without skimping on scene setting, quick-witted without decending into comedy rap – easily living up to each cat's legacy. Includes "Zorak", "Screen Play", "Overland", "Typecast" feat POS, Hemlock Ernst & Busdriver, "Pinky", "Church", "Tar", "Wonder Girl" and "Lemons". CD

EMI (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $15.99
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
