✨✧ VariousCine Jazz – The European Film Music Collection ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix some strong instrumental solos with groovy, swinging, and upbeat arrangements – that fantastic use of jazz in film scores that the European scene of the 60s really took up and ran with – into places that were often much cooler, much more interesting than American soundtracks of the time! The collection's filled with great little gems that really work well in each others' company – and titles include "Those Lazy Days" by Armando Trovajoli, "Number One Superman" by Piero Piccioni, "Jazz Interludio" by Giorgio Gaslini, "La Preda" by Vince Tempera & Franco Bixio, "Astaroth" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Eva" by Michel Legrand, "Una Gita Mancata" by Ennio Morricone, and "Fiacre" by Georges Delerue.

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $14.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

VariousFlying Start – KPM 1000 Series Compilation 1968 to 1978 ... CD
KPM/Vocalion (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
A very cool collection from the KPM Sound Library – and a set that shows that the label didn't just put out crime and cop-styled funk! Instead, these tracks represent a nicely sophisticated array of sounds – tracks that offer up a bit of jazz, a touch of electronics, and some of the deeper themes you'd expect from some of the bigger names in 70s soundtrack composition – all mixed with groovy elements that keeps the whole thing as lively as the other sound library collections from Vocalion! There's a nicely light vibe to some cuts – billed here with themes that include "miniature moods", "industry/awards", "metropolis", and "dramatic backgrounds" – and the package features a whopping 28 tracks in all – including "Rat Race" by Nick Ingman, "World Series" by Keith Mansfield, "Guide Path" by Neil Richardson, "Fight For Survival" by Johnny Pearson, "Love Poem" by Keith Mansfield, "Computology" by John Cameron, "Flying Start" by David Lindup, "Sublimation" by Stan Tracey, "Sunny Start" by James Clarke, "Automation" by Nick Ingman, "Mood Macabre" by Stan Tracey, and "Tension" by John Dankworth.

VariousGet Easy Vol 4 – The German Pops Collection ... LP
Motor (Germany), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
After the French Pops collection, the great folks at Motor have come up with a matching German Pop collection, with an equally stellar assortment of lost Now Sound sounds, wrapped up in a totally cool package that has to be seen to be believed. The focus here is more on instrumental tracks than on the French volume, and there's a lot of cool funky easy tracks by folks like Peter Thomas, Maurice Popp, Horst Jankowski, Nelson Riddle, Charlie Antolini, Gustav Brom, and other great bandleaders whose work was rarely (if ever) released in the the states. Another amazing batch of groovy groovy tracks, and so cool we can't even begin to describe it. Plus, it's got a nice low Dusty Groove price! Take that, Tower! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... LP
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 26.99
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

VariousGirls Want The Boys – Sweden's Beat Girls 1964 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Totally groovy sounds from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a flurry of female pop tunes that we love every bit as our favorite French femme work from the time! Like French pop, the tunes here are lively and upbeat – often with a slight current of funk or soul in the rhythms, and with instrumentation that mixes fuller orchestrations with groovier elements at the core – creating a juxtaposition of large sound and personal presence that makes the music plenty darn great throughout! There have been lots of other European scenes tapped like this over the years – but this may well be the first Swedish collection we've ever heard – and, thanks to the folks at Ace Records, it gets beautiful presentation with top-shelf sound, and detailed notes on the music. Titles include "The Girls Want The Boys" by Eleanor Bodel, "Karlek Finns Det Overallt" by Mak Les Souers, "Last Train To Liverpool" by Plommons, "Good Kind Of Hurt" by Lena Junoff, "Don't" by Doris, "Benny Law" by Plums, "Lite For Liten" by Lill Babs, "Vadret" by Mona Wessman, and "You Really Have Started Something" by Britt Bergstrom. 24 tracks in all!

VariousItalian Girls Like Ear-Catching Melodies ... CD
Dagored (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
Despite the cloying title of this one, the set's a very sweet collection of Italian 70's themes with a groovy sexy sound to them. There's perhaps more of a camp feel than usual (if you can believe that!), with sounds that have a bit of a Barbarella-ish feel, or sort of a Euro b-grade erotic quality. There's some nice mellow moments with spare electric keyboards, in sort of a Morricone style, and others with good rolling basslines. Titles include "Louise" and "Theme For A Murderer" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Bella Signora" and "One More Time" by Piero Piccioni, "La Storia Comincia" by Guido De Angelis, "Diamanti Swing" by Francesco De Masi, "What Is This Love" by Franco De Gemini, "Susan & Jane" by Riz Ortolani, and "Il Sorriso Della Ieana M6" by Roberto Pregadio. Nicely packaged in a sexy cover, and with a nice pace of grooves! CD

VariousNew Jazz Festival – Balver Hohle 1974 & 1975 (11CD box set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 11CD ... $129.99 199.99
Incredible jazz from the German scene of the 70s – two years' of recordings from this important festival – one that presents all the "new jazz" promised in its name, but in a range that moves effortlessly between free jazz, modal moments, funky fusion, and even some groovy big band work too! Performers are a range from all over the European scene – and are represented here in a significant selection of material from each act – very well-recorded, and presented in this beautiful box set, along with a booklet of notes and photos as well. The scope of sounds is fantastic – and long performances include an set of improvisations from the trio of Peter Brotzmann, Fred Van Hove, and Han Bennink; two long electric tracks from Jasper Van't Hof's Pork Pie group, with Charlie Mariano on a range of reeds and Philip Catherine on guitar; four long improvisations from the SOS group of John Surman, Mike Osborne, and Alan Skidmore – plying in a great mix of reeds and electronics; there's also two long improvisations between pianist Misha Mengelberg and drummer Han Bennink; Gary Burton's quintet with Pat Metheny and Mick Goodrick on guitars perform three improvisations for over 75 minutes of music; the Gustav Brom Big Band step out on some very groovy tracks; saxophonist Eero Koivistonen blows with his quartet that includes Olli Avhenlahti on electric piano; reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolph Dasek play a number of improvisations; bassist Barre Phillips and flautist Kryzstof Zgraja perform two long improvisations; the Polish Jazz Summit features Tomasz Stanko on trumpet, Zbigniew Namyslowski on alto, Zbigniew Siefert on violin, and Adam Makowicz on Fender Rhodes; and trumpeter Franz Kogelmann and soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy head a quintet with a bit of electronics! There's a few more surprises, too – and the whole thing is a fantastic presentation of these lost sounds. CD

VariousRicordare – The Songs Of Ennio Morricone ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s/2016. New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic collection of songs originally penned by soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – served up here in a host of vocal versions that really show how many different artists and styles he influenced over the years! Some of the cuts here are expected Italian pop singles – vocal variations of Morricone themes in Italian – but as the set moves on, there's a really groovy range of different sounds from all over the world – some with a relation to the soundtrack/sound library scene, but lots more by a variety of artists inspired by the genius of the maestro. As with other sets like this on Ace Records, the package features detailed notes – helping put all the music in context – and the 21 track set list is full of surprises, mostly with songs from the golden late 60s/early 70s era, mixed with some stunning gems from later years. Titles include "Questi Vent'Anni Miei" by Catherine Spaak, "Una Stanza Vuota" by Lisa Gastoni, "Hurry To Me" by Amii Stewart, "La Ballata Di Hank McCain" by Jackie Lynton, "Ballad Of Sacco & Vanzetti" by Scott Walker, "Ricordare" by Gerard Depardieu, "It Couldn't Happen Here" by Pet Shop Boys, "Il Tempo Sa" by Romina Arena, "Amalia Por Amor" by Hayley Westenra, "A Brisa Do Coracao" by Dulces POntes, and "Canzione Basilica" by Fausto Cigliano.

VariousSpaced Out – The Story Of Mushroom Records ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A totally groovy look at London's Mushroom Records – a tiny imprint that flourished briefly in the early 70s – and gave home to a much wider array of sounds and styles than you might expect! There's a great post-60s approach going on here – a bit similar to the many directions that American FM freeform radio was taking at the time – as bits of rock, jazz, Indian, folk, and other styles come together – all resonating together beautifully with each other, and really creating a mind-expanding sound in the process! The range of artists here is as wonderful as their many styles – and rather than come across like a label with a confusing approach, Mushroom seems to have a really visionary way of putting all these many moments together. The set also features some related work from the Maximum Sound Productions project of label owner Vic Keary – for a whopping 46 tracks in all. Titles include "Cham Cham Cham Cham" by Nitai Dasgupta, "Or Alternatively Nine" by Lol Coxhill, "Where's Your Master Gone" by Simon Finn, "Evil Ways" by Les Flambeaux, "Hangin On An Eyelid" by Second Hand, "Puckaree" by Urban Clearway, "Land Of A Thousand Dreams" by Chillum, "The Phoenix" by Magic Carpet, "The Ould Triangle" by Liverpool Fishermen, "Folk Piece In Kharwa" by Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha, "Rainbow Chasing" by Andromeda, "Knock On Wood" by Oliver Bone, "My Ways Are Set" by John Williams, "Taboo Man" by Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, "Never Gonna Love Again" by New Faces, "Summer Leaves Me With A Sigh" by Tuesday's Children, and "I Am Nearly There" by Denis Couldry & The Next Collection.

VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

VariousVocal Superstars At King Jammy's (4CD set) ... CD
17 North Parade, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $22.99 25.98
A quaret records by reggae vocals heroes produced by King Jammy from the late 70s and early 80s – Dennis Brown's The Exit, Gregory Isaacs's Come Along, Sugar Minnott's Bitter Sweet and Horace Andy's Haul And Jack Up – in a killer box set! This was the period in which Jammy was utilizing modern production touches with more traditionally rooted singers and styles – in a mode that paved the way for digital dancehall hall and modern sounds to come! Dennis Brown's The Exit, alternately released as History, features Brown's rootsy style in the dancehall era, with tracks including "Too Late", "History", "Up-Full One", "The Exit", "Dance All Night" and more. Come Along by Gregory Isaacs is a great later effort from the Cool Ruler, teaming him up with King Jammy on "Take A Look","You're Like An Angel", "Do Your Own Thing", "Kinky Lady", 'Sip Of Wine", "Curfew", "First Class Lover", "Give Love A Try", "Bits & Pieces" and "No Good Girl". Sugar Minott's Bitter Sweet is a sweet set of early 80s dancehall grooves – with I'm Not For Sale", "Give The People", "Never Too Young", "Be Careful", "Right Track", "Can't Get Over", "Save The Children" and "This World". Horace Andy's Haul And Jack-Up includes the groovy title track, "Girl Of My Dream", "Live And Save Life", "Sweet Reggae Music" and more. Each CD comes in a mini-LP replica sleeve. CD

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
A very groovy set that looks at the roots of French pop during the early years of rock and roll – specifically the sounds from Paris that were copies of American styles, but which changed the language and style to fit the scene! The package features both "VO", or voix original, and "VF", or voix Francais versions of each tune – which means that first you get a French pop hit from the period, then the American song on which it was based – showing a really nice juxtaposition as French singers pick up the songs of artists who include Gene Vincent, The Coasters, Joe Jones, Bill Haley, Dion, Everly Brothers, and others. 3CD set features notes in French and English, and a total of 75 tracks that include "L'Homme A La Moto" by Edith Piaf, "T'Es Pas Tombe Sur La Tete" by Mac Kac, "Oh Les Filles" by Pingouins, "Belles Belles Bells" by Claude Francois, "Veille Bien Sur Mon Amour" by Richard Anthony, "Nous Quand On S'Embrasse" by Johnny Hallyday, "Oh Baby Tu Me Rends Fou" by Chats Sauvages, "J'Entends Siffler Le Train" by Hughes Aufray, "Jackie La Guitare" by Jacky Mouliere, "Le Lion Est Mort Ce Soir" by Henri Salvador, "Vingtieme Etage" by El Toro & Les Cyclones, "Oh Oh Cheri" by Francoise Hardy, and "Twist A Saint Tropez" by Guy Lafitte.

✨✧ Herb AlpertBrass Are Comin' ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really sweet riff on western soundtrack styles by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, though still in Herb's breezy 60s style – wonderful stuff, and a set that's a bit overlooked in his classic A&M canon! The way the bright and sunny Herb Alpert jazzy pop instrumental style melds so nicely with chugging western sounds, and rustic nylon string guitars blend with soaring orchestral pop strings really makes for a heck of a groovy record! It's a whole lot of fun, and unique in the Albert catalog. Titles include "The Brass Are Comin' (The Little Train Of Caipira)", "I'll Be Back", "Anna", "You Are My Life", "Robbers & Cops", "Country Lake", "The Maltese Melody", "Anna", "Moments", and "Good Morning Mr Sunshine".

✨✧ Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaMagnetic Systems ... CD
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous trio from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 70s – Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – all great talents on their own, but a real powerhouse of grooves when they got together on work like this! The Bixio-Fizzi-Tempera name always meant something extra-groovy on a record – either an extra-funky soundtrack with lots of weird touches, or the kind of cool Italian single that might be somewhere between sound library funk and more progressive material – a really rich array of sounds that came from the trio during their years working together in the mid 70s! This package brings together some of the best cuts from those days, with an extra special Finders Keepers/Andy Votel ear for the weirdest and most unusual sounds – which creates an album that's plenty funky, but in ways that are very different from the usual US or European styles of the time. Basslines, heavy drums, spacey keyboards, and odd guitar sounds abound – and titles include "Electronic Sound", "Avangiu", "Godzilla", "Allucinazione Mistiche", "Death's Song", "Escape", "Vai Gorilla", "Night Club Dance", "The Hunt Down", and "Concessioni Naturali".

Warner, 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has some great moments – complicated jazzy bits that you might have forgotten about, and some surprisingly groovy material that sounds a lot better than you might remember! Includes the classics "Beginnings", "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is", "Questions 67 & 68", and "Listen" – plus the tracks "Someday", "I'm A Man", "Free Form Guitar", and "Liberation". CD

✨✧ Cosmic Analog EnsembleLes Sourdes Oreilles ... LP
My Bags (France), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This "ensemble" is really just one guy – Charif Megarbane, who recorded the whole album in Kenya – working together a fantastic array of sounds on drums, percussion, guitar, Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, flute, vibes, oud, and a number of other instruments too – all with a mighty nice sound that's as sinister as it is groovy! The album mixes together soundtrack funk, European exoticism, mod keyboards, and some more spiritual currents – all with a sound that's the best side of pastiche, without any of the usual crash and burn that might come about on a project handled without this much vision. The sound is wonderful, and very unique – never slavish to its influences, and instead really going for something new – on titles that include "Apres Vous", "Camille 3000", "A La Derive", "Pourparlers", "Les Sourdes Oreilles", "Al Mushtari", "En Faction", and "Le Dernier Mot".

✨✧ Bobbie GentryOde To Billie Joe ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key late 60s country crossover set, but one that also inspired a fair bit of funk as well! The title cut's a well-known gem – one that's been covered instrumentally in some break-heavy versions, but which sounds even more amazing here in Bobbie's original version – one of the moodiest pop tunes we've ever heard, with lyrics, and a way of presenting them, that still leaves us breathless all these many years later. There's also some other funky bits here too – Gentry's raspy "Mississippi Delta" – an original number that almost seems to unseat Tina Turner for down-home soul – and the groovy "Sunday Best", "Niki Hoeky", "Papa Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You", and "Chickasaw Country Child", all numbers that echo the same lilting acoustic guitar grooves of "Billie Joe".

Limelight, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This classic bit of funky electronic French stuff has been showing up in bits and pieces on various compilations over the past few years (most notably the cut "Psyche Rock", which has some sample history to it), but this is the full release of this amazing collaboration between electronic music pioneer Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier, and a soundtrack for a full length ballet of groovy electronic pieces. It's great all the way through, and many tracks have the same feel as the famous "Psyche Rock". Other tracks have a very spare electronic sound – there's odd bubbling sounds, cool funky beats, and some very groovy melodies. Titles include "Rock Electronique", "Jericho Jerk", "Teen Tonic", "Too Much", and "Marche Du Jeune Homme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". CD

MastersoundsDate With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good ... $6.99
A great album by the bscure and groovy group that featured Wes Montgomery's brothers (Buddy and Monk) on vibes and bass, plus Richie Crabtree on piano and Benny Barth on drums. The group had a piano/vibes sound that was clearly inspired by 50s work of the George Shearing Quintet or the MJQ – but given their roots in the Montgomery Brothers' Indianapolis soul jazz scene, the Mastersounds managed to swing a bit more than their contemporaries – going for a slightly exotic approach to jazz that also had lots of traces of the work of Horace Silver. Titles include "Fink Fank Funk", "For Now", "Try It", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michel LegrandEVA – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Doxy, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost soundtrack from Michel Legrand! The score is a lightly jazzy one, done for a film starring Jeanne Moreau and directed by Joseph Losey – and the music's a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The overall feel is quite dark – with the kind of jazz-based soundscapes that were showing up in some other French soundtracks at the time. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and "Adam & Eve", which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton!
