✨✧ Barry AltschulAnother Time/Another Place ... LP
Muse, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the few sides led by drummer Altschul, during a period when he was associated with some of the heavier players in the European and American avant scenes! On his preceding Muse LP, Altschul had been joined by some of his cohorts in Circle – but here only bassist Dave Holland remains, working in a larger group filled out by like-minded progressive players who include Anthony Davis on piano, Arthur Blythe on alto, and Abdul Wadud on cello – as well younger side men like Peter Warren on cello and Ray Anderson on trombone. Side one relies heavily on Davis' input, with the lengthy "Crepescule: Suite For Monk" and "Chael" – while side two features Altchul's solo "Traps", the smaller setting of the title track "Another Time/Another Place", and the bass/cello Holland number "Pentacle".

Barry AltschulBrahma ... CD
Sackville (Canada), 1980. Used ... $4.99
A really sweet trio set from Barry Altschul – and one that lets him stretch out beautifully on a wide range of percussion! In addition to traditional drums, Altschul handles quica, bowed cymbals, waterphone, shakers, bells, cymbals, wood block, and lots more on the record – also getting some percussive performances from his mates in the trio – trombonist Ray Anderson and bassist Mark Helias! Anderson's trombone really provides some great glue to hold the performance together – some bold, soulful lines that easily move between free passages and more swinging moments. Titles include "Con Alma De Noche", "Irina", "Be Out S'Cool", and "Brahma". CD

Claudja BarrySweet Dynamite ... LP
Salsoul, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
An early hit for Salsoul Records – a set of extended European disco tracks, all building in a nice slow, layered sort of way – then remixed by Tom Moulton for the US dancefloor! The tunes have this instrumental structure that almost doesn't even need the vocals of Claudja Barry – especially the title track, which has this sweet-stepping keyboard line that's really beautiful – more of the hook of the tune than the lyrics themselves. Strings swirl stronger as the album moves on – and Claudja more than redeems herself on the cut "Dance Dance Dance", which is a nice bit of dancefloor funk that really stands out! The other cuts include "Live A Little Bit", "Sweet Dynamite", and "Love For The Sake Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryDeadfall ... LP
20th Century, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Moody magic from the great John Barry – a little-heard soundtrack for a late 60s Michael Caine thriller! Barry's working here in a style that's tense and evocative – mostly orchestral, but with solo guitar on many tracks stepping out front – setting the mood as Barry's orchestrations clatter around with the tightly-strung approach of his best work for the James Bond films! The score kicks off with a striking Shirley Bassey number called "My Love Has Two Faces" – and other titles include "The Meeting", "Statue Dance", "The Last Deadfall", and "Romance For Guitar & Orchestra".

John BarryDove (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little score from John Barry – quite different from his usual soundtrack material, with a breezy sort of style that really fits the spirit of this sailing film! Instrumentation is often a light blend of strings and keyboards – a bit of electric harpsichord or melodica at points, which is especially cool – plus some occasional woodwind moments at more dramatic moments, often used to underscore the mood of a piece. Barry's still got that great sense of space and timing he developed at the end of the 60s – a real musical maturation that almost echoes some Italian styles at points. Titles include "The Motorbike & The Dove", "Alone On The Wide Wide Sea", "Porpoise Escort", "Xing Mombila", "After The Fire", "Patty & Robin", and "Hitch-Hike to Darwin" – plus "Sail The Summer Winds", sung by Lyn Paul. CD features lots of bonus tracks too – 8 unreleased mono score tracks, and 3 more stereo tracks from the album sessions too. CD

John Barry & OthersCool Mikado ... CD
El (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $8.99
A modern take on Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado – one that features instrumental grooves from the great John Barry, plus vocal performances by Frankie Howerd, Kevin Scott, Lissa Gray, and Stubby Kaye! The music often follows the spirit of the classic strongly – but Barry's touch makes for some key groovy elements too – especially on the instrumental selections, which are the ones we almost like best. Given the singers chosen for the performances, the lyrics have a somewhat updated feel too – and titles include "A Wandering Minstrel", "Cool Mikado Overture", "Gentlemen Of Japan", "Three Little Maids From School", "For He's Gone & Married Yum Yum", "Here's A How De Do", "Tit Willow Twist", and "The Sun Who's Rays Are All Ablaze".

John Barry/Adam FaithBeat Girl (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/El (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $8.99
One of John Barry's first true moments of genius – recorded back when he was the leader of a fab little instrumental combo called the John Barry 7, and was tagged to do some soundtrack work that would forever change the rest of his career! The album's got some incredible instrumental tunes that mix electric guitar and beatnik jazz in a mode that's keeping with the juvenile delinquent theme of the film – with some strings sneaking in to cheese things up a bit, but in a great way that only makes the tunes sound even better! Adam Faith sings vocals on "The Beat Girl Song", "Made You", and "I Did What You Told Me" – and other tunes include "Blues For Beatnicks", "Blondie's Strip", "Beat Girl", "Time Out", "The Sharks", and "The City 2000 AD". This El UK edition includes bonus tracks by Gillian Hills, The John Barry Sound and Adam Faith. CD

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

John Barry/LuluMan With The Golden Gun ... LP
United Artists, 1974. Very Good ... $7.99
Later Bond, but John Barry's still firmly in place – and is more than capable of turning out another wonderful thriller soundtrack! As with the scope of the film, the range of tunes is a bit more spread out than usual – stepping across a variety of locales to set the mood with an expansive array of themes. Lulu sings the title cut – one of the lesser-remembered Bond tunes – and the other tunes include "Kung Fu Fight", "Hip's Trip", "Chew Me In Crisly Land", "In Search Of Scaramanga's Island", "Getting The Bullet", and "Goodnight Goodnight".

John Barry/Shirley BasseyGoldfinger ... LP
United Artists, 1964. Very Good+ ... $8.99
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning through the air! Barry then takes over with some wonderful instrumentals – a blend of crime jazz, mood pieces, chase themes, and more – all peppered with that dark dark Bond theme that we love so much! Titles include "Into Miami", "Teasing The Korean", "Alpine Drive", "Bond Back In Action", "Gassing The Gangsters", and "Death Of Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names. Titles include "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Thunderball", "The Bomb", "Chateau Flight", "Bond Below Disco Volante", "Death Of Fiona", and "Switching The Body". LP, Vinyl record album

Barry Brown is showcased here in nice, long 12-inch style numbers, with bass and drums heavy rhythms and plenty of room for Brown to demonstrate he was good and ready for a full length showcase.

ECM (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Some of the most outside work ever recorded by Chick Corea – a great session from the post-Circle trio that included Barry Altschul on percussion and Dave Holland on bass! The sound here is in a vast space of dark corners, sharp edges, and some slightly warmer moments – similar to some of Chick's other work as a leader before this album, but a bit more stark overall. Although listed with writing credits, most titles have a strongly improvised feel – quite free, especially the piano parts! Titles include "Ballad For Tillie", "Nefertitti", "Vedana", "Thanatos", and "Games". LP, Vinyl record album

Barry GraySpace 1999 ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
One of Barry Gray's greatest moments – the ultra groovy soundtrack for Space 1999, the short-lived but well-remembered mainstream sci-fi show from the 70s! The title theme has a nice bit of a dancefloor bounce to it – pre-guessing the disco-copy mode that other space soundtracks were facing in the 70s by turning out its own original hit – and other tunes in the set follow a sometimes similar mode that makes the record far funkier than you'd guess for a soundtrack of this type! Some tracks are certainly more straightforward and dramatic, but there's plenty here in that funky Brit Easy mode of the mid 70s – lots of compressed instrumentation and some slight electronic touches – and often rhythms that are a lot harder than you'd expect! Highlights include "Breakaway", "Death's Other Dominion", "Black Sun", and a reprise of the theme. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barry GuyTime Passing ... CD
Intakt (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
One of the more complicated works we've ever heard from bassist Barry Guy – a longer piece composed for three different voices and strings as well – but which also still features a fair bit of improvisation throughout! Anja Poche and Matthew Brook sing in straighter (although still avant) styles as the soprano and baritone on the set – and Savina Yannatou improvises vocally alongside them – in this really wonderful juxtaposition of styles – while Guy's bass has an incredibly strong lead above the violins, cello, and viola of Camerata Zurich – again with some bolder improvised moments throughout. The core strings provide this sense of tension, which is beautifully broken by the improvisations – and the entire piece is over 70 minutes long! CD

Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

The BCG is the Bob Crewe Generation – a sweet 70s disco ensemble led by the 60s soundtrack king. Here, they've got a tightly percolated sound that reminds us of Barry White at his best – strings soaring over strong syncopation, with some chorus female vocals bubbling in amidst the glossy funky mix.

John Benson Brooks with Cannonball AdderleyAlabama Concerto ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A groundbreaking album – not only for Cannonball Adderley, but for the jazz concerto format, used to strong effect here in this excellent modernist composition by John Benson Brooks! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruth BrownRuth Brown '65 ... LP
Mainstream, 1965. Very Good ... $6.99
An interesting set for Brown, working in more of a jazzy/bluesy style rather than the R&B vein for which she was mainly known. The album was arranged and conducted by Peter Matz with fairly lavish orchestrations accompanied by Brown's mainly mellow vocals. Hank Jones, Clark Terry, Barry Galbraith, Richard Davis, Urbie Green and other jazz musicians fill out the roster alongside the large string section. Titles include two from Nellie Lutcher "Hurry On Down" and "He's A Real Gone Guy" and Dick Hyman's "Watch It", "Whispering Grass", "I Know Why", "Here's That Rainy Day", and a very interesting interpretation of "On The Good Ship Lollipop".

Jon BurlingameMusic Of James Bond (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 35.00
Over the years, the music of the James Bond movies has become almost as notable as its stories and stars – not just the famous themes from John Barry, but also the participation of singers and groups as diverse as Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Madonna, and Adele! Author Jon Burlingame looks at the music of the films on a movie-by-movie basis – with chapters on the films that not only offer up stories behind the music, but also dig deeper into the scores as well – and sometimes offer up tales of sounds that never saw the light of day – like Frank Sinatra's proposed performance for Moonraker, the unused Eric Clapton guitar for License To Kill, and the possible Amy Winehouse music for Quantum Of Silence. The book includes a number of photos and album covers – and is 291 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white images. Book

Charlie ByrdBlues Sonata ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the more ambitious records ever cut by guitarist Charlie Byrd – a set that begins with a side-long suite of tracks – the "Blue Sonata", which features Byrd playing in a much more complex way than usual! The sonata features three parts, all composed by Byrd, and Charlie plays acoustic with just a bit of trio backing – mixing jazz guitar modes with some slight serious music undercurrents – in ways that almost remind us of later European dates by Baden Powell. The rest of the record has Byrd on electric guitar, with piano from Barry Harris, bass from Keter Betts, and drums from Buddy Deppenschmidt – all on more standard jazz tracks that include "Jordu", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart".

An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al Cohn & Dexter GordonTrue Blue/Silver Blue ... CD
Xanadu/Elemental, 1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Some of the most cooking work of the 70s from Dexter Gordon – and that's saying a lot, given all his overseas sessions and late-life work for Columbia Records! The format here is different than both of those, though – in that it's both a sharp hardbop set, with a real back-to-basics vibe – but also one that has much more of an overall group feel, instead of some of the longer-form solo vehicles that Gordon recorded for Steeplechase Records. There's definitely a blowing session vibe – tracks are long, and there's multiple soloists who each get extended time in the spotlight – but there's also a careful sense of structure, brought to the record no doubt by producer Don Schlitten – who'd handled classic dates in the past for Prestige. The group features both Gordon and Al Cohn on tenors, Blue Mitchell and Sam Noto on trumpets, Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – a hell of a lineup that really makes magic on "Lady Bird", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "True Blue", "On The Trail", "Allen's Alley", and "Silver Blue".

Tappan Zee/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of sweet funky fusion gems from Mark Colby – back to back on a single CD! Serpentine Fire is an overlooked gem from Bob James' Tappan Zee empire of the 70s – that label that provided the perfect platform for artists to grow a bit more after the CTI years! Reedman Mark Colby is a newcomer to this scene, but hits a groove that's instantly in the best CTI/Kudu mode – with funky jazz backings that often have that laidback, spacious style that's more soulful than jamming fusion – served up by players who include Bob James on Fender Rhodes and piano, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, Steve Gadd on drums, and Hiram Bullock on some electric guitar. Colby himself plays tenor and soprano sax – and titles include a nice remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire" – plus "King Tut", "Renegade", "On & On", and "Daydreamer". On One Good Turn, reedman Mark Colby really comes into his own – crafting sweet lines on tenor and soprano sax, in modes that extend previous 70s fusion work from artists like Stanley Turrentine or Grover Washington Jr! Like both of those giants, Colby gets great backing here in a spacious electric style that allows plenty of room for the solos in the lead – with artists who include Bob James and Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, and Mike Mainieri on vibes. Titles include "Capativa", "Village Zoo", "Peace Of Mind", "Skat Talk", and "Macbeth". CD

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A great collection of Chick's work for Blue Note and Solid State – recorded at a key time in his career, one that's almost lost to the history books! The tracks are from the years 1968 to 1970 – a time when Chick was coming off of work in the Latin and soul jazz underground, and before he blew up to big Scientology fame. The overall feel is a mixture of arch-modern piano and some more open-ended spiritual soul jazz – and players include Woody Shaw, Hubert Laws, Roy Haynes, and Benny Maupin, as well as his partners in the group Circle, Dave Holland and Barry Altschul. Titles include "Matrix", "Jamala", "Nefertiti", "Is", "This", and "Now He Sings Now He Sobs". LP, Vinyl record album

This hard to find Blue Note 2-fer includes unissued material from Corea's key late 60s years – some of it cut with the short-lived Circle group of Anthony Braxton, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul; others with only Holland and Altschul; and one earlier batch with a trio that included Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes.

Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Amazing stuff – and work that will have you changing your opinion about Chick Corea! Around 1970, Corea was part of a groundbreaking group called Circle – an amazing avant quartet that featured him, Anthony Braxton, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul. Circle are one of those groups who always gets talked about, but who left behind almost no recorded legacy – which is why this set of recordings from 1970 is so important to an understanding of Corea and Braxton's career. The 2LP set features 3 sides worth of Circle material – including "Quartet Piece 1, 2, & 3", and the shorter "Percussion Piece". The 4th side of the set features the trio of Corea, Holland, and Altschul performing the haunting "Drone". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Floyd Cramer takes it to school – with two of his "class" albums from the 70s! Class Of 73 is a mighty nice set – a record that has the trademark Cramer piano getting maybe a bit more of a contemporary touch in the hands of arranger Barry McDonald – who swirls in strings and horns with maybe a bit more prominence than the backings on some of Cramer's other records, but still at a level that leaves lots of space for his work on the keys! Titles include a great reading of "My Love" – plus "Killing Me Softly", "Will It Go Round In Circles", "Kodachrome", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", and "And I Love You So". Class Of 74 & 75 is a Floyd Cramer album that packs two years into one – but all with a vibe that more than lives up to the sound that Cramer's crafted in Nashville after all these years! There's a nicely light touch on the strings from Michael Leech, and Floyd's piano is always out front – following the melody in his spare, gently tripping way. Titles include "Time In A Bottle", "Please Come To Boston", "Sunshine On My Shoulders", "Mandy", and "I Honestly Love You" – a great run of 70s AOR titles, all done as easy piano instrumentals! CD

But despite that ability to sound tight in the studio, Ronnie really shows a completely different side of his talents here – a hard-burning approach to baritone sax, with a deftness that rivals Pepper Adams in a similar setting – a quality that almost feels like a tenor at times, given Cuber's dexterity and speed of improvisation. The rest of the group's great, too – and includes Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – who really provide the right amount of soulful hardbop to keep things crackling.

Jorge plays a range of acoustic and electric keys here – mostly in a small group setting that features guitar from Barry Finnerty or George Benson – both of whom play with the warm touches that are just right for Dalto's keys. There's a bit of horns on the set – Art Webb on flute on one track, Tom Browne's trumpet on another, and the alto of David Sanborn on two more – and the great Nicky Marrero contributes some Latin percussion to some of the album's best numbers too. Titles include "You're Like An Angel", "It's Magic", "Like A Whisper", "Hotel Du Globe", "My Latin Brother", "Mountain Song", and "Poinciana". LP, Vinyl record album

Francesco De Masi & France De GeminiOur Way ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $15.99
Two legendary Italian soundtrack talents serve up a host of familiar themes, their way – music by Henry Mancini, Neal Hefti, Johnny Keating, Riz Ortolani, John Barry, and other film score giants – all given a sweet harmonica twist by Franco De Gemini! De Masi provides these warm instrumental backdrops that have a real 70s Italian film vibe – and Franco makes real magic with his harmonica over the top – in a style that's almost got some Toots Thielemans elements more than his darker music for famous films. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Lady On The Cameo", "Once Is Not Enough", "This Hotel", "Flight Over The Town", and "Flaminian Way". CD

Jay DeeI Can't Let You Go/Come On In Love ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99
A killer cut from Jay Dee – a tune written by Tom Brock, and which has that same soaring, stepping groove that Brock forged with Barry White – save maybe a deeper sound overall, given the vocals! White produced and arranged with Gene Page – and the flipside features the righteous funk classic "Come On In Love", which has a snapping groove that's totally amazing! 7-inch, Vinyl record
