✨✧ Tony CrombieWhole Lotta Tony – Tony Crombie & His Friends ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that's not just noteworthy for being a sweet early 60s date from British drummer Tony Crombie – but also for its great work on alto sax and flute from a young Harold McNair! McNair would go onto greater fame in the London scene of the late 60s – on both the jazz and rock fronts – but he already sounds wonderful here, and adds a sense of wit and whimsy to the record that Crombie's other albums don't usually have – a sly edge on both of his reed instruments that really makes the music sparkle with soul! Other great players include Tommy Whittle on tenor and bass clarinet, and Gordon Beck on both piano and harpsichord – the latter of which sounds especially great in a jazz setting. Titles include "Gut Bucket", "Round The Ouses", "Brazilia", "Flute Salad", "Journey's End", "The Gang Busters", and "Penthouse Party". CD

✨✧ London Jazz QuartetLondon Jazz Quartet ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from this lesser-known British combo of the late 50s – a group that actually features some of the best players on the London scene at the time! Drummer Tony Crombie leads the combo, and also handles the arrangements – but the real shining stars are the reedmen – Tubby Hayes, who plays tenor, alto, and flute, plus a bit of vibes – and Alan Branscombe, who handles tenor and alto, plus some piano as well! The quartet lineup ensures that there's plenty of space for these horn players to really do their thing – and since some tracks only have drum and bass, while others have more piano than drums, there's a really loose rhythmic feel to the whole thing – quite nice, and much more relaxed than the usual Crombie-led session. Consider the record a lost gem in the Tubby Hayes cannon – and then marvel at all the other great bits its got to offer too! Titles include "London Lament", "Cheekie Chappie", "The Baron's Blues", "Slick Riff", "Wait & See", "Big Ben Bounce", and "Lakeland". CD

Bernard HerrmannFantasy Film World Of Bernard Herrmann ... CD
El (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99
Most folks know Bernard Herrmann for his famous moody soundtracks for Alfred Hitchcock, or his late life genius on the Taxi Driver score – but Herrmann also had a great ear for more fantastic styles, too – and could turn his dark orchestrations into other cool spacey and watery styles too! This collection brings together the best of that music – work that had an undeniable impact on some of the Italian exotic scoring of the late 50s and early 60s, and which also has a bit more intimacy and character than the American soundtracks for bigger, more epic productions. CD features a total of 31 tracks, with a number of selections each from the films The Day The Earth Stood Still, 7th Voyage Of Sinbad, Ghost & Mrs Muir, Beneath The 12 Mile Reef, and Journey To The Center Of The Earth.

✨✧ Roy AyersBest Of Roy Ayers – 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection ... CD
MCA, Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic music by one of the all-time greats – easily one of our favorite soul artists of the 70s, and a hell of a jazz musician too! The tracks here are all from Roy Ayers' landmark run at Polydor Records – a place where he turned his straight jazz sound of the 60s into a mix of spiritual, funky, and smooth-stepping grooves that are totally great! The collection brings together some of the key Ayers cuts that have broke big with the younger generation – some because of famous use as hip hop samples – and titles include "Mystic Voyage", "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", "Running Away", "Coffy Is The Color", "Don't Stop The Feeling", "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", "searching", "Gotta Find A Lover", and "Everybody Loves The Sunshine".
