✨✧ LakesideFantastic Voyage ... LP
Solar, 1980. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crowning achievement from Lakeside – one of the key albums to link Ohio funk roots with a smoother LA groove – all served up in a way that had limitless influence for years to come! Bass is definitely at the head of these arrangements, but there's plenty of great guitar too – riffing and scratching in a way that percolates the tunes wonderfully – keeping plenty of funk in the mix without falling into the too-uptight traps that sometimes mired other groups. But almost even better are the vocals – which are tight and well-placed – never an afterthought, but always a key part of the groove, thanks to plenty of great hooks that really send the tunes home! Titles include "Eveready Man", "Say Yes", "Strung Out", "Fantastic Voyage", "I Need You", and "Your Love Is On The One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tony CrombieWhole Lotta Tony – Tony Crombie & His Friends ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $3.99
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

Ronnie RossStompin' With The Ronnie Ross Quintet ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), New Copy ... $3.99
British reedman Ronnie Ross really shines brightly on this set – a well-crafted batch of tunes that takes a great lead from his strong work on baritone sax! The sound is somewhat tightly arranged – a bit in a US west coast mode from the time – but the groove's also a bit looser at points, and really has some nice edges on the solos. Ross blows baritone and a bit of alto sax, and other players include Bert Courtley on trumpet, Eddie Harvey on piano (and a bit of trombone), Pete Blannin on bass, and Andy White on drums. Titles include the Ross originals "Lucky Bean", "Blue Grass", and "Red Prune" – plus versions of Don Rendell's "Donation" and Tubby Hayes' "The Serpent". CD

VariousBig Sound – Ember Soundtracks & Themes ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1960s. Used ... $5.99
Spy grooves, crime jazz, and more – a massive collection of brilliant Brit instrumentals from the 60s – great sounds that show that there was plenty more happening in the UK than just a few famous James Bond soundtracks! Of course, there's a handful of Bond-styled work here – no surprise, since a few tracks are by John Barry – but the set also stretches out into other hip cinematic modes, too – showing how the 60s English film scene really made the best of the kind of jazz you might have found in late 50s French and American movies. Titles include "Drama On The Move" and "Blue Shadows" by Edwin Astley, "Slow Beat" and "Man From Interpol" by Parliament Brass, "Supposing" by Tony Crombie, "Fancy Dance" and "Four In The Morning" by John Barry, "No Tears" by Mark Wirtz, "The Penthouse" and "Dance" by John Hawksworth, "Out & In" and "A Man Can't Have Everything" by Joe Parnello, "In Nome Della Legge" by Armando Sciascia, and "Elizabeth" by Johnnie Spence. CD
(Includes original slipcase.)
