✨✧ Dave BrubeckAngel Eyes ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $7.99
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and this subtle sense of emotion is a perfect foil for the understated talents of Paul Desmond's alto work on the set. Brubeck himself is nice too – less trick-oriented than usual, in a way that lets us focus on the colors of his tone – and drummer Joe Morello and bassist Eugene Wright are in top form, as usual. Titles include "Violets For Your Furs", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "Will You Still Be Mine", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono pressing.)

Clarke Boland Big BandAt Her Majesty's Pleasure ... LP
Black Lion, 1969. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the greatest long-form albums from the Clarke Boland Big Band – a sophisticated suite that not only shows off the writing ability of Francy Boland, but also demonstrates the group's ability to swing like a mofo, even when things are serious! The album's a jazz suite written by Boland, and dedicated to the great prisons of England – where Johnny Griffin was once kept "At Her Majesty's Pleasure", due to non-payment of some income tax. The experience of Griffin led Boland to explore the idea of the British penal system with a number of powerful emotional themes, and the result of this writing is one of the CBBB's best albums of the late 60s – filled with rich colors and tones that go far beyond the earlier modes of the group, but without some of the too-complicated elements that sometimes show up in later suites. A good part of the album's success comes from the strength of the soloists – players who include Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Tony Coe on clarinet, Sahib Shihab on flute and soprano, Kenny Wheeler and Benny Bailey on trumpets, and Ake Persson and Nat Peck on trombones. Titles include "Pentonville", "Wormwood Scrubs", "Doing Time", "Broadmoor", and "Going Straight". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Cliff MartinezMy Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn ... CD
Milan, 2015. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
Compelling work from Cliff Martinez – a contemporary soundtrack composer who's been getting the sort of nods usually reserved for classic artists – thanks to his work in films like Drive and this little gem! The music's heavy on keyboards, and done with a spacious sort of vibe – almost classic horror, but warmer and more ambitious – as Cliff doesn't just let the keys do all the work, and instead brings lots of his own personality and emotion to the music – shading things in around the edges with some colors and tones that are completely sublime. The record works very well away from the film – maybe even too well – and titles include "Pan To Me", "Bring In The Cows", "Breaking The Waves", "Hands", "You Can't Spend Two Hours", and "Shadows".

✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Ah Um ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection! This 1959 gem was recorded by Mingus at a key point in his career – when he was rising from the jazz underground into the ranks of America's elite jazzmen, penning some of the most challenging work of his career, and working with incredible younger players that interpreted his work with a great deal of fire! The tracks are a bit more tightly arranged than work on some of Mingus' previous work for labels like Atlantic and Bethlehem, but that also gives them a razor-sharp emotional edge that's carried off perfectly by players who include John Handy and Shafi Hadi on alto saxes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Willie Dennis and Jimmy Knepper on trombones, Horace Parlan on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The album is filled with key Mingus classics – like "Better Git It In Your Soul", "Boogie Stop Shuffle", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", and "Fables of Faubus" – plus "Self Portrait In Three Colors", "Open Letter To Duke", and "Bird Call". CD

✨✧ Claudette SoaresClaudette Soares (1967) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful early work from Claudette Soares – a really lovely album of bossa-styled material, but sung with a slightly deeper edge too! The arrangements are wonderful – uncredited on the cover, but really a masterpiece in understatement – that carefully balanced mix of emotion and sadness with jazzier currents, which graced some of the best Brazilian records of this type from the time! Soares sometimes sings with a fuller feeling, but often keeps things in this well-pitched manner that really suits the careful instrumentation and all of its wonderful dark tones and colors. Titles include "Vim", "A Noite Da Ilusao", "Balada Do Tempo E Da Vida", "Nos", "Rosa Dos Ventos", and "Tao Doce Que E Sal". CD
