✨✧ LakesideFantastic Voyage ... LP
Solar, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

Tubby HayesJazz Genius – The Flamingo Era (3CD set) ... CD
Tempo/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1956/1957/1958/1959/1961. Used 3CD ... $11.99
Tubby Hayes is definitely a genius – we've been saying that for years, and it's nice to have a CD set that finally states it as proof! The UK tenorist was easily one of the best players going in the late 50s and early 60s – on either side of the Atlantic – and although Tubbs recorded a bit in the US, most of his work never hit these shores, as it was recorded for the Tempo label in England. This package nicely corrects that fact, and presents a sublime assortment of classic Tubby Hayes grooves from his best years – a period when he was often working in the company of co-tenorist Ronnie Scott, and also getting great accompaniment from the cream of the UK scene – including Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Terry Shannon and Bill LeSage on piano, Lenny Bush and Phil Bates on bass, and Tony Crombie and Bill Eyden on drums. The 3CD set brings together 6 albums from the Tempo label – Tubby Hayes & The Jazz Couriers, An Evening With Tony Kinsey, The Jazz Couriers In Concert, Jazz At The Flamingo, Tony Crombie & His Men, and London Jazz Quartet – some of which weren't under Hayes' name as a leader, but which still feature some very strong contributions on tenor, plus a bit of vibes and flute as well! 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Runnymede Groove", "What A Gas", "Through The Night Roared The Overland Express", "Royal Ascot", "Cheek To Cheek", "Laker's Day", "Odd Man Out", "London Lament", and "Mirage".

✨✧ Mark WirtzWirtz & Music – 2 Rare 60s Projects From The Ember Lounge (Latin A Go Go/Smooth & Easy) ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1966. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Very cool work from maestro Mark Wirtz – instrumental projects that are quite different than some of his more rock-styled material of the 60s! First up is Latin A Go-Go – a really smoking little set that offers up a pop version of 60s Latin modes – a bit like some of Claus Ogerman's work for RCA at the time, with a romping groove that draws from Latin Soul, but an execution that's a bit more in a Verve or Atlantic Records style! The tracks are instrumental, but occasionally feature a female chorus scatting along with the grooves – and instrumentation is by both Jim Sullivan and Vick Flick on guitar, plus an unnamed saxophonist who's pretty darn smoking. There's a mod swinging feel throughout – and titles include "Yeh Yeh", "Watermelon Man", "More", "Comin Home Baby", "Beyond The Horizon", "Riviera Carnival", "Adventure", "Don't Do It Baby", and "Yesterday's Laughter Today's Tears". Smooth & Easy is a little bit of both things promised in the title – but never in a way that's slick or sleepy at all – thanks to some very groovy 60s scoring from Mark Wirtz! The tunes are all instrumentals – mostly obscure numbers that seem to be of European origin – played with a bit of woodwinds, brass, and percussion – all used sparingly, and punctuated with electric bass in ways that really keeps things moving. Even though the grooves are gentle, the basslines and percussion bring a nice groove to the set – and the freshness of the titles makes the set a nice change from other 60s easy material. Titles include "Chip Chip", "No Tears", "Suddenly", "There'll Always Be Times", "It Was Always You", "Everything I Know", "The Ways Of Love", and "You Are Why". CD

✨✧ 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

Roy AyersBest Of Roy Ayers – 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection ... CD
MCA, Late 70s. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
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".

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.
