✨✧ 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.)

Beau BrummelsTriangle ... LP
Warner, 1967. Very Good- ... $11.99
A tremendous album from The Beau Brummels – one of the lesser-remembered groups from the late 60s Warner hipster heyday! At some level, the group's a folk-rock outfit – with the left-of-center feel of some of Fred Neil's best work for Capitol, and a similar blend of east coast honesty and west coast mind expansion. The format here is remarkably simple, but handled with some nice touches by producer Lenny Waronker, who really brings a lot more out of the band than on their earlier indie recordings. Titles include "Are You Happy", "The Wolf Of Velvet Fortune", "The Keeper Of Time", "Only Dreaming Now", "Magic Hollow", "Painter Of Women", and "Triangle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing. Cover has wear, a bit of sticker residue, a split top seam, splitting on the other seams, and a small stain on the back.)

Steely DanCountdown To Ecstasy ... LP
ABC, 1973. Very Good- ... $7.99
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. Includes the insert. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Chico HamiltonGongs East! ... LP
Warner, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the best album to feature the talents of Chico Hamilton and Eric Dolphy – a set recorded at a time when Dolphy was an up-and-coming player on the west coast scene! Although Chico Hamilton had recorded with unusual reed players before, Dolphy brings a depth of soul and spirit to this album that's missing from a lot of Chico's earlier work at the time – a style that still holds onto some of the measured qualities of the Pacific Jazz work by the Hamilton group, yet which also opens up into some of the darker corners that Dolphy would explore more on his own recordings of the 60s. The group also features some great guitar by Dennis Budimir and cello by Nathan Gershman – but the real standout aspects of the set come from Dolphy's work on flute, alto, and bass clarinet. Titles include "Where I Live", "Passion Flower", "Tuesday At Two", "Nature by Emerson", "Far East", and "Good Grief, Dennis". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing. Cover has yellowed tape on all seams and remnants of a sticker.)

✨✧ MastersoundsSwinging With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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".

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Good+ ... $2.99
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.)

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The full orchestral version of the Sweet Smell Of Success soundtrack – but done in a style that's almost as jazzy and swinging as the small combo one! Elmer Bernstein's at the helm here – and the music's a wonderful pastiche of modes that's right up there with his sublime score for The Man With The Golden Arm – done in a similar blend of driving jazz, somber moments, and some slightly more raucous touches! As with that album, the players are all great – and soloists on the album include Pete Candoli, Ted Nash, and Shelly Manne – west coast players despite the New York setting of the film, and playing here with a fair bit of grit in their groove. Titles include "The Street", "Hot Dogs & Juice", "Toots Shor's Blues", "Nite Spot Rock", "Love Scene", and "Out Of Darkness". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Decca pressing – in beautiful shape!)
