TTF (Today, Tomorrow, Forever)Surprise! Surprise! ... LP
Gold Coast, 1981. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A lost bit of boogie from the late Curtom years – a set that has TTF working with the hard-grooving team of Jimmy Levine and Jesse Boyce! The album's got a sparkling sort of polish that's really great, yet far from commercial sound of the time – way better than most indie sets of this nature, especially in the way it manages to shift around between groovers and ballads, and give space to some of the different vocalists in the process. Instrumentation's nice and warm – that rich modern soul sound that Curtom was showing in its final years – and titles include "Mighty Fine", "If The World Could Love", "Let Yourself Go", "Love Is Just What You Make It", and "Got To Keep Movin On". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Armada OrchestraArmada Orchestra ... LP
Scepter/Contempo, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not much to say here – but the record was a pretty respectable batch of Euro disco that was licensed by Scepter for release in the US, during a period when they were having some luck with early disco sides of their own, and started digging around for similar material from other sources. Unfortunately, this one lacks the soulfulness of some of the east coast work that was Scepter's strongest suit at the time. Titles include "Do Me Right" and "Same Old Song", plus versions of "The Hustle", "Cochise", and "Band Of Gold". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split bottom seam, and a black paste-on on back with some writing in marker.)

✨✧ Steely DanCountdown To Ecstasy ... LP
ABC, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Superb work from Steely Dan – and a record that really shows them hitting perfection in the studio! The core sound of this one's jazzier than before – with some great help on instrumentation from Victor Feldman, Lanny Morgan, Bill Perkins, and other west coast jazzers – all helping the group sound great on some of the tightest tracks ever written by the team of Becker and Fagan! Ecstasy is definitely in reach with the sound of this set – a sublime effort all the way through that really set a whole new standard in 70s rock! Includes classics like "Bodhisattva", "Your Gold Teeth", "My Old School", and "Show Biz Kids". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing.)

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Good+ ... $1.99
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz arrangements by Marty Paich that you'll find on some of Mel's other Bethlehem albums – but the songs can be incredibly goofy, rhyming towns in CA with catchy words and phrases, pairing Marines in San Diego with wealthy old widows, and leveling San Francisco with one of the worst puns on "Golden Gate" that we've ever heard! Still, the album's an essential one if you're a fan of Mel Torme – not only because it's got some wonderful vocals in the best parts, but also because it's a true reflection of his deep commitment to pushing the boundaries of jazz music. Tracks include "West Coast Is The Best Coast", "They Go To San Diego", "LA", and "Poor Little Extra Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, seam splitting held with clear tape, a hint of pen and a small stain.)

✨✧ Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
It's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo?", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moderate wear, with some stains and a cut corner.)

✨✧ Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a "simulated stereo" sticker along the top.)

✨✧ MastersoundsSwinging With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Buddy and Monk Montgomery (Wes' brothers) play vibes and bass in this groovy instrumental combo that also includes Richie Crabtree on piano and Bennie Barth on drums. The tracks are nothing special, but they are nicely light and groovy, with some good vibes-heavy moments. Titles include "Golden Earrings", "There Is No Greater Love", and "West Coast Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red vinyl pressing. Back cover has an ink stamp, some notes in pen, and light wear.)
