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.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousSalsoul Presents Crossover Flavas – When Northern Soul Met Disco ... CD
Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A key chapter of the later years in the British Northern Soul scene – when the clubs picked up on some of the more current work of the 70s, and grooves headed into the sweet, warm territory of modern soul! The tracks on the set offer a great overview of the soulful cuts from the Salsoul label that burned big on the UK scene – hand-selected by Eddie Piller of Acid Jazz, and featuring a great mix of album cuts and more obscure singles! The set's a great one if you only ever thought of Salsoul as a strict disco label, and there's loads of cuts on the set that bubble with some of our favorite late 70s modern tracks of the period. Titles include "Time Will Tell" by Eddie Holman, "You're My Saving Grace" by John & Michael Hill, "Janice" by Skip Mahoney, "Catch Me On The Rebound" by Loleatta Holloway, "Gamble On Love" by First Choice, "So Much For Love" by Moment Of Truth, "You're So Much A Part Of Me" by Carol Williams, "I'm A Fool" by Bunny Sigler, "Continental Square Dance" by Joe Bataan, "I Just Can't Give You Up" by Floyd Smith, "Just As Long As You Love Me" by True Example, "Everyman" by Double Exposure, and "Put It To The Back Of Your Mind" by Love Committee.

Veston Androy/JaojobyMavandeza/Taratasy Maitso ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
"Mavandeza" is a freaky little groove – a number with a jagged rhythmic feel, and a bassline and drum part that almost feel like they were lifted from an early Can record – then mixed with these very cool vocals that have an oddly vibrating quality! "Tarasty Maitso" is a bit more straightforward, and a heck of a groover – fast-romping rhythms that have guitar laced up with the percussion, and a breezy flute in between the vocals and the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Luis BacalovLa Piu Grande Rapina Del West/L'Oro Dei Bravados ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1967/1969. Used ... $18.99
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

✨✧ Franco BattiatoSembrava Una Serata Come Tante/Gente ... 7-inch
Universal (Italy), 1969. Near Mint- (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Rare early single from Italian singer-songwriter Franco Battiato – and in a melodic, sprawling psych pop style – with is something of a surprise given his more out there experimentation on later recordings! Both tracks start out with a fairly intimate sound, but build in atmosphere as they go, with nice string arrangements and passionate vocals. A great couple of tunes! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Art BlakeyCaravan (bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $5.99
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, and Cedar Walton on piano! The sextet format really pushes the energy of the group – and allows for even more wonderful horn interplay than before – while still allowing for lots of solo space for individual voices. Tracks are long and open, with a bouncing lyrical groove that's more soaring than some of the heavy-hitting earlier albums from Blakey, but no less pleasing – and possibly even a bit more soulful! Titles include "Sweet N Sour", "This Is For Albert", "Skylark", and "Thermo". CD

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".

Felix CavaliereCastles In The Air ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
Felix Cavaliere may be best known to some for his work in the Rascals – but years later, he stepped out as a solo act on his own – with a sound that nicely drew from all of his early work on Atlantic Records! The sound here is kind of a late 70s update of the blue-eyed mode that Felix had with his earlier group – given a bit more of an AOR spin in the production, through use of a top-shelf array of jazz fusion players in the backings. Despite the pianos on the cover, Cavaliere mostly plays Fender Rhodes and organ next to his vocals – on titles that include "Only A Lonely Heart Sees", "All Or Nothing", "People Got To Be Free", "Outside Your Window", "Love Is The First Day Of Spring", "You Turned Me Around", and "Good To Have Love Back". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

John Coltrane & Don CherryAvant-Garde (180 gram pressing – mono) ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A beautiful meeting of two major talents from the left end of jazz – recorded in the early 60's when both were working for Atlantic! Despite the "avant garde" title, this set is straighter than you'd expect – very much in the spirit of Coltrane's work for the label, but with perhaps some of the more angular styles that Cherry was laying down with Ornette Coleman at the time. The session has Coltrane joining Ornette's group of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – save for a few numbers that feature Percy Heath on bass instead of Haden. The set includes great readings of Ornette's "The Blessing", "The Invisible", and "Focus On Sanity", and Coltrane plays both soprano sax and tenor! LP, Vinyl record album

Francesco De Masi/Bruno Nicolai/Gian Piero ReverbeRingo Il Cavaliere Solitario/Una Colt In Pugno Al Diavolo/L'Ultimo Mercenario ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1967/1968/1969. Used ... $11.99
3 obscure Italian action soundtracks – laid out as one tasty triple-header CD! Ringo Il Cavaliere Solitario features music by Francesco De Masi – relatively spare and moody, despite the spaghetti western setting of the film – in a mode that often has the main them played on an isolated guitar part, supported by slight strings. Una Colt In Pugno is much more driving and upbeat – a great little score by Gian Piero Reverberi – and one that features leaping, loping rhythms underneath some very twangy electric guitar! L'Ultimo Mercenario is for a film with a more contemporary setting – and is done by Bruno Nicolai with some nice jazzy touches on a few tracks – plus some other great arrangements that have some strong echoey and watery qualities!

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelisContinuavano A Chiamarlo Trinita ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... About June 25, 2017
A beautifully sensitive soundtrack for this early film from the team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – very different than most of the other western music of the time – which is a fitting accompaniment to the unique actions of the pair onscreen! There's a fair bit of acoustic guitar in the instrumentation, used in ways that are sometimes warmer and more sentimental than you'd expect – played with a subtle sort of character that really comes through in this well-done reissue of the music – and which gets even better when groovier elements on piano or horns come into the mix. Things build nicely as the set moves on, with a very vivid feel throughout – and titles include "Remember", "Il Carro Al Fiume", "Assalto Alla Diligenza", "Ranch Di Parker", "Trinity E Bambino A San Jose", and "Trinity Stand Tall". Great reissue version – with excellent sound, notes in Italian and English, and even some vocal songs sung by Gene Roman. CD
