CachaoMore Legendary Descarga Sessions ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Late 50s/1966. Used ... $3.99
A great counterpart to the better-known Cuban Jam Session In Miniature sessions – one that features a wealth of additional descarga work from bassist Israel "Cachao" Lopez! The first 2 tracks on the set were recorded with the group of Tito Rodriguez in New York in the mid 60s – harder-hitting than most of Tito's other work of the time, and played by a group that includes Bobby Porcelli on alto sax, Victor Paz on trumpet, and Rene Hernandez on piano. The rest of the work on the collection was recorded in Havana in the late 50s – and features players that include Chocolate Armanteros on trumpet, Nino Rivera on tres, Walfredo De Los Reyes on timbales, Peruchin on piano, and Luis Escalente on trumpet – under the leadership of Cachao, Chico O'Farrill, and Walfredo De Los Reyes. Most titles are short, but hard-hitting instrumentals that really get at the descarga groove as it was first forged on the Cuban scene – and the CD features a total of 18 titles that include "Introduction", "Descarga Cubana", "Avance Juvenil", "Redencion", "Juan Pescao", "Descarga Mambo", "Las Boinas De Cachao", "Leche Con Ron", "Descarga Mejicana", "El Fantasma", "Descarga Numero Uno", and "Es Diferente".

Stelvio CiprianiUST 7013 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
We love Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani for his cop, crime, and erotic soundtracks of the 70s – and he sounds equally great here in the setting of a rare sound library album from the same time! The album's got no proper title or cover, but it's a wonderfully rich batch of music that's especially strong in the slinky/sexy Cipriani mode – with great keyboards and woodwinds carving out some themes so strong, you'd swear you heard them in a European film of the time! Things never get too funky, but they're also never sleepy at all either – and titles include "Hippy Love", "Fantasma Spiritoso", "Orizzonti Fatati", "Danza Degli Gnomi", "Orchidea Nello Spazio", "Incontro Di Fate", and "Rimani Amore". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Franceso De MasiConcerto Per Pistola Solista (The Story Of A Crime) ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully complicated soundtrack – one with many moods, and some really great work overall! The set starts out a bit strangely – pushing the "concerto" aspect with some overly-dramatic classically-styled themes – but as the work unfolds, a range of different influences come into play – including some jazzier themes, some sparer instrumental ones, and a few really nice lighter and groovy numbers that almost have a love comedy sort of approach – one that's much more in keeping with the 1970 date of the film! Instrumentation on these gets nicely electrified, and titles include "Tema Di Barbara", "Seduzione E Incubo", "Sweet Barbara", "Thorpe Overture", "Isabel & Tom", "Cercando Un Fantasma", "90 Miles To London", "Good Night Anthony", and "Georgy & Mamie".

Claudio Gizzi, Sandro Brugnolini, L Piccioni, & OtCommenti Musicali – Thrilling Tensione Terrore Vol 2 ... LP
Contempo (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy ... $21.99
A host of Italian horror soundtrack composers, serving up spooky new sounds for the 80s – reflecting the shift towards more electronic instrumentation on the scene – but still used here with all the best vivid elements learned from an older era of soundtrack music! Claudio Gizzi takes over all of side one on this sound library set – and his music is a masterpiece of dark sounds and subtle sonic elements – all electronic, from what we can tell – but with a textural sophistication that takes it way past the simpler keyboard modes of the time. Side two features work from a variety of other composers, and is even more complex overall – and apart from one clubby space disco number, most of the music is pretty spare and spooky too. Titles include "Plasma", "Micromateria", "Ossessione", "Sul Filo", "Il Fantasma Dell'Opera", "Il Grande Fratello", "Le Voci Di Dentro", and "Spasmodica Attesa". LP, Vinyl record album

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD
