Quincy JonesMackenna's Gold/In Cold Blood ... CD
Intrada, Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of Quincy Jones soundtracks – both quite different, but working well together here in a single package! First up is Mackenna's Gold – a western soundtrack – but one that's groovier than you might expect, given that the music was done by Quincy Jones with some vocals by Jose Feliciano! The general style is strings and western themes, but Quincy manages to put a bit of bounce at the bottom – using an electric bass in a syncopated style that's quite different from your average western score, and which gives a couple of tracks a nice gliding easy feel that sounds like some of Mancini's best in the early 70s. Jose sings the tune "Ole Turkey Buzzard" in both English and Spanish – and the tune itself is a pretty nice little number! Other tracks include "Soul Full Of Gold", "Waterhole Trek", "Massacre Montage", and "Apache Camp". Next up is In Cold Blood – and there's some pretty great moments in Quincy Jones' original score to the film version of Truman Capote's chilling book – most of them in a darkly tinged crime jazz mode, with flowing, complicated orchestrations that are mixed with breakout solos, and some very strangely arranged instrumental elements – almost more in some of the territory of Kenyon Hopkins, and some of his more dramatic jazz scores of the 60s! Titles include "In Cold Blood", "Seduction", "Down Clutter's Lane", "Murder Scene", "The Corner", "Lonely Bottles", and "No Witnesses". CD

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinAva Collection (Walk On The Wild Side/Carpetbaggers/Caretakers/Baby The Rain Must Fall/To Kill A Mockingbird/Movie & TV Themes) ... CD
AVA/Intrada, 1962/1963/1964/1965. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s soundtracks from Elmer Bernstein – all originally issued by the indie Ava label, where Bernstein was one of the biggest stars! Elmer had already had a number of years experience working in Hollywood – including some classic late 50s scores that perfectly mixed jazz with larger orchestrations, in a style he explored even more fully on some of the best material here. Yet some of the other soundtracks show Bernstein's increasingly good ear for a dramatic moment – the kind of under-done passages that really had a way of doing a lot with just a little – lessons learned from jazz, then recast back onto larger arrangements, but without any of the Hollywood bombast of decades before. These moments really make the soundtracks sparkle – bits of illumination that resonate strongly throughout the 3CD passage, and draw some surprising links between all the different film scores presented within. The set features five full soundtrack albums – Walk On The Wild Side, The Carpetbaggers, The Caretakers, Baby The Rain Must Fall, and To Kill A Mockingbird – plus the additional Movie & TV Themes record by Bernstein.

✨✧ Hugo MontenegroHurry Sundown (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Intrada, 1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the richest 60s moments from composer Hugo Montenegro – a soundtrack that's penned with a mix of string styles that are a nice bridge between the differing instrumental styles that Hugo would use in the 50s and the 60s! Some of the numbers showcase Montenegro's strong ability to score a scene with subtle feeling – inflections of the instruments in these ways that are gently expressive, but never too sentimental while other numbers have a bit more of that color and tone that Hugo would really explode into bigger flourishes in some of his 60s action and comedy work. There's a few other interesting elements – a bit of field chorus singing, to fit the southern sharecropper narrative – and a few especially nice jazzy tracks that really stand out! Titles include "Breakfast In Bed", "Playing With Dynamite", "Charlie's Trip", "Love Me Vivian", and "Hurry Sundown Blues". 2CD version features a huge amount of material never heard before – 28 tracks from the film, and 12 more unused cues – including some great sax numbers – plus the 12 titles from the original LP release. 53 tracks in all!

✨✧ John WilliamsJaws (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
MCA/Intrada, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A 70s soundtrack that hardly needs an introduction – given that its music and image were virtually ubiquitous at the time! The record's best known for John Williams' famous "da-da da-da" theme for the film – used in the titles, and whenever the big guy wanted to attack – but there's a lot more richness going on here too – beautiful orchestrations that get way past any cliches you might expect, and which offer up both moments of subtle tension and great redemption – all scored beautifully by the master. Titles include "Main Title", "Chrissie's Death", "Out To Sea", "The Indianapolis Story", "Hand To Hand Combat", and "Night Search". This massive 2CD version features way way more than just the original album – and includes 36 more tracks from the film soundtrack, including some never-heard alternates – plus 6 more tracks that are dubbed as "Music From Amity Beach", and which were background cues in the beach scenes. Add in a huge book of notes, and this is clearly the best version of the soundtrack ever released! CD
