Johnny WilliamsGuide For The Married Man ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967. Used ... $19.99
Being married has never sounded so groovy – thanks to a great score by Johnny Williams! This obscure 1967 film was directed by Gene Kelly, and starred Walter Matthau, Robert Morse, Wally Cox, Joey Bishop, and Jack Benny – a cast that alone will give you a feel for the style of this 60s sex comedy! Williams' score is stuffed with groovy numbers that have a great kitschy 60s sort of feel – slinky sexy strings, romping mod rhythms, and lots of great instrumental flourishes with a jazzy sort of style! The original soundtrack's been greatly expanded here – with a total of 31 cuts, pressed up in a great package with notes on the music, images from the film, and limited to 3000 copies! Titles include "The Bust Up Scene", "Backyard Barbecue", "Smelly Concoction", "The Party", "Trial Run", "Divorcee", and "Second Thoughts". CD

Johnny WilliamsHow To Steal A Million ... CD
Tsunami, 1966. Used ... $11.99
Mid 60s magic from Johnny Williams – a cool little score to an obscure heist film that starred Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole! The style here is very much like some of Johnny's other best of the time – often playful at points, but warmer at others – a great blend of fuller strings and more whimsical instrumentation that keeps up all the delightful play of the action on the screen. Titles include "Two Lovers", in both vocal and instrumental versions – plus "At Maxims", "The Cellini Venus", "The Prowler", "Simon Says", and "The Can Can". CD

Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the best tunes are the swinging vocal numbers, like "Give A Little More", "Come Live with Me" and "I'll Plant My Own Tree" – which have the fierceness of the film's characters set loose on record (an important thing in the years before you could watch a DVD copy of the movie at home!) Plus, the album starts out with the great monologue which begins the film – kind of a dreamy narrative about the beginning of the downfall that destroyed the life of Neely Bruce – and leads into tracks that include "It's Impossible", "Theme From Valley Of The Dolls", "Jennifer's Recollection", and "Jennifer's French Movie".

✨✧ Johnny WilliamsDiamond Head ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Diamond Head is a great early score from Johnny Williams – penned for a film set in Hawaii, with a cast that includes Charlton Heston, James Darren, and George Chakiris! Williams' score is a mix of tropical themes, dramatic modes, and a number of groovier-styled tunes – music that's a bit more like some of his work for 60s comedies, with slight twists and turns that keep things interesting. And even the dramatic tunes, while done with a fair bit of strings, show a much lighter approach than most other work of the time – and these tunes are offset by others that use woodwinds in a really great way, almost with a snakeily evocative style that you might find in the lighter moments of a TV drama. Titles include "Luau Dance", "Sloan Strolls", "Catamaran", "Diamond Head Theme", "Mei Chen", and "Manoalani". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny CashJohnny Cash Sings Hank Williams ... LP
Sun/Sundazed, 1960. Sealed (reissue)... $11.99
Johnny Cash masterfully dips into the Hank Williams songbook – and what we get from it is and excellent Sun LP in which one of the greatest forlorn voices in honky tonk/proto rock/country music history pays perfect tribute to the originator! This one not only includes Cash's raw, unfussy earlyish Sun style takes on Hank classics, but some of Johnny's own standards, and it's as high quality of a beginning-to-end listen as just about any in his Sun canon. Includes "I Can't Help It", "You Win Again", "Hey Good Lookin'", "Give My Love To Rose", "Come In Stranger", "Mean Eyed Cat", "Come In Stranger", "I Walk The Line", "I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You" and more.

Johnny Hodges, Cootie Williams, Barney BigardDuke's Men ... LP
Epic, Late 30s/1955. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An excellent album that features late 30s recordings by some of Duke Ellington's most famous sidemen! The groups on most of these are fairly similar – mostly small group sessions from the larger Ellington outfit – pulled out in ways that give a strong focus on the solo talents of the session leader – and as with other packages in this series, the fidelity is much better than the original singles, and accompanied with full notes on the music! Titles include "Rexatious" and "Lazy Man's Shuffle" by Rex Stewart; "Echoes Of Harlem", "Swing Pan Alley", and "I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me" by Cootie Williams; "The Rabbit's Jump", "Pyramid", and "Jitterbug's Lullaby" by Johnny Hodges; and "Caravan" and "Stompy Jones" by Barney Bigard.

✨✧ Larry Williams & Johnny WatsonTwo For The Price Of One (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Okeh, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sock-soul set of material from Larry Williams and Johnny Watson – and one that really updates their older groove for the Northern Soul generation! The album's pretty amazing – hardly anything you might expect from any of Williams' earlier work, and drenched in the charms that Johnny Watson discovered in the 60s, and expanded in the 70s – but set to rhythms that are as hard-grooving from a soul perspective as any of the best work on the Okeh label at the time! Arrangements are by Arthur Wright and Melvin Jernigan, who hit a very natural vibe that lets Larry and Johnny trade lines back and forth wonderfully – in a very personal, almost spontaneous way that's very different than better-known male soul duos of the 60s – and the record is a key lost link in Watson's career, one that really lets you hear him tightening things up before his superstar years of the 70s. Titles include the killer classic "Two For The Price Of One" – plus "Too Late", "Aint' Gonna Move", "Keep On Lovin' You", "Takin No Chances", "A Quitter Never Wins", and "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch". Features great bonus tracks too – including the Johnny/Larry single cuts "Nobody" and "Find Yourself Someone To Love" CD

Johnny Guitar WatsonHot Just Like TNT - The Best Of His Early Years ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The title's no lie – as the young Johnny Guitar Watson comes on here with the force of dynamite – maybe even more hard and heavy than during his bigger years of the 70s! Johnny's more of an R&B singer here – and a powerhouse, too – not just a hell of vocalist, but an excellent guitarist with a very sinister groove – a sharp burst of sound that's a bit like Pee Wee Crayton, but with a more focused punch that really sets fire to the tunes – even when Watson's just using his instrument to underscore his vocals! The cuts are all very early material by Johnny – issued by the RPM, Modern, and Keen labels – including a few unissued numbers that Watson recorded with Johnny Otis – and the package also includes a few tracks with female singers – either Jeannie Barnes, Devonia Williams, or Cordella De Milo. As always with Ace, the presentation is wonderful – way better sound and notes than any of those public domain packages – and titles that include "Ruben", "Three Hours Past Midnight", "Hot Little Mama", "Lonely Girl", "She Moves Me", "Love Me Baby", "Come On Baby", "Gangster Of Love", "One Room Country Shack", "Someone Cares For Me", "Those Lonely Lonely Nights", "Don't Touch Me", and "Telephone Boogie".

Deniece WilliamsBlack Butterfly – The Essential Niecy ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A treasure trove of work from Deniece Williams – one of the coolest, classiest soul singers to hit the mainstream at the end of the 70s! Williams has roots that go deep in the Chicago scene – including young work under the name of Deniece Chandler – but this set picks off from the time when she hit Columbia Records as a full-formed adult soul singer – one of the freshest talents of her generation – with an ability to hit some of the spiritual currents of Minnie Riperton, and some of the grooves you might expect from Cheryl Lynn! Both those sides and many more are featured here – in a 35 track set that's overflowing with gems, produced by soul music legends who include Maurice White, Charles Stepney, Thom Bell, Ray Parker Jr, George Duke, Jeff Lorber, and others. Titles include "Baby Baby My Love's All For You", "What Two Can Do", "I Can't Wait", "I'm So Proud", "Black Butterfly", "Silly", "God Is Amazing", "Free", "Healing", "All I Need", "Waiting By The Hotline", "Let's Hear It For The Boy (12" version)", "Do What You Feel (single version)", "When Love Comes Calling", "I've Got The Next Dance (12" version)", "That's What Friends Are For", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". Also features duets with Johnny Mathis on "Without Us", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Too Much Too Little Too Late", and "You're All I Need To Get By". CD

✨✧ John WilliamsLong Goodbye (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1973. Used ... $24.99
A mad little soundtrack – for a mad little film! The Long Goodbye is one of the best-remembered Robert Altman films of the 70s – a wonderful contemporary remake of a Raymond Chandler/Phillip Marlowe classic – and in addition to some nice jazzy moments scored by John Williams, the score also features a stunning re-presentation of the main theme – a haunting number with vocals by Johnny Mercer! In the movie, Elliot Gould hears the song in many different versions – in a nightclub, on the radio, and in other settings that continue as the movie goes on – even a mariachi band at one point! The soundtrack CD features all these great versions – ten in all – with solo piano by Williams, a trio take by Dave Grusin, and vocals by Irene Kral, Clydie King, and Jack Sheldon too! The CD features all these takes on "The Long Goodbye" – plus more tracks that include "Marlowe In Mexico", "Night Talk", "Main Title Montage", and "The Border – plus even some studio rehearsal on the track, including banter from Clydie King!

Larry WilliamsThat Larry Williams – The Resurrection Of Funk ... CD
Fantasy/Dusty Groove, 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
A rare funk album from west coast legend Larry Williams – very different than his heavy R&B of the late 50s, or the brief soul comeback he had with Johnny Guitar Watson in the 60s – and instead a heavy groover with a trippy Cali sound! The record's got a sharp groove right from the start – a vibe that's a bit similar to some of the best Johnny Watson funk of the period – a slight jazzy undercurrent in the instrumentation, with wicked guitar and keyboard bits dancing around each other in the rhythms – often mixed with vocals that have a cool sort of electric feel, and topped with some great horn work from Fred Wesley on trombone and Maceo Parker on alto sax! Rudy Copeland plays keyboards on the album alongside Williams, the the set's got a bit of the feel of Rudy's lost Funky Blindman set – and in a way, also echoes the best strutting, sexy modes of Bootsy Collins too. The album's a surprising gem all the way through – a real lost chapter in Larry's career, and the kind of set that might have broken bigger, had he not died mysteriously a few years later. Titles include "Funky Force", "The Resurrection Of Funk", "One Thing Or The Other", "ATS Express", "How Can I Believe", and "Can't Dance To The Music (If It Ain't Got Funky Rhythm)". CD

✨✧ Johnny DuncanLast Train To San Fernando (4CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 4CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Overlooked genius from Johnny Duncan – an American artist working in England at the end of the 50s – where he participated in the skiffle music scene that helped that nation's rock and roll years get going! Yet despite the overseas nature of the recordings, Johnny's southern roots give these tracks a definite hillbilly vibe – and the quality of the music is quite different than other UK work of this nature. A great lost figure who deserves to be ranked among american hillbilly/rockabilly giants – presented here in a huge package of work that includes his UK recordings for Columbia, Pye, and Decca – plus rare sides that also include a Salute To Hank Williams and Tennessee Song Book albums. As usual, the great Bear Family presentation is wonderful – with a big booklet of notes! CD

✨✧ Johnny OtisJohnny Otis Shows – Vintage 1950s Broadcasts From Los Angeles ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Totally cool stuff – a set of 50s radio broadcasts from LA R&B legend Johnny Otis! And wait, before you say "radio broadcasts? Bet the quality's not good" – don't! The work on here is really great, and the sound quality is equally good – and together, the set offers a totally different side of Otis than you'd hear on the studio recordings. These recordings not only have Johnny grooving with his great 50s band, but they also feature a bit of radio patter, advertisements, and other spoken bits – showing just how plugged in Johnny was to the south central community. Way more than just an excellent set of 50s R&B, the CD's a brilliant document of the time – with a level of quality that makes it even more tremendous. Performers include Johnny, The Dominoes, Marie Adams, The Mermaids, Larry Williams, and The Penguins – and tunes include "Sweet Love", "One Sweet Letter", "Bum On A Log", "Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean", "Not Too Young", "Justine", "The Dummy", and "Dirty Dishes".

A groovy groovy soundtrack from Johnny Williams – scored for a goofy heist film starring Natalie Wood, and featuring a wonderful blend of jazzy, bossa, and harmony-styled tunes! The whole thing's extremely lively – and although Williams is working with a larger orchestra on most of the record, there's also some bouncing electric bass on the bottom of most cuts – and nice use of jazzy solo instruments. The title theme "Penelope" is sung in a sunshine harmony mode by The Pennypipers, a group assembled for the record – and other tracks include "Poolside", "The Girl In The Yellow Dress", "Girl Chase", "The Mad Professor", "Penny's Arcade", and "At The Art Museum".

Ann Margret/Marty PaichSongs From The Swinger & Other Swingin Songs/Pleasure Seekers ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy ... $11.99
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other albums of the period – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich, Quincy Jones, and Johnny Williams – all of whom put a nice sort of lilt in the backings, and manage to capture Ann at her sexiest. The title tune "The Swinger" is worth the price of entry itself – as it's a catchy, guitar-twanging number delivered in an incredibly breathy mode – supported by 2 great instrumentals from the film as well, "Swinger's Holiday" and "Kelly's Dance". But even on more conventional numbers, Ann's got a great sound here – bringing whole new sexy life to tracks that include "I Wanna Be Loved", "By Myself", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "More", and "Cute". Pleasure Seekers is a dreamy little soundtrack from Ann-Margret! The record features 4 unique vocal numbers by Ann – including "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Next Time", Something To Think About", and "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love" – plus instrumental tunes by Lionel Newman. Newman's work is partially snoozy, as it can be when he's scoring a more dramatic film – but there are some nicer groovy bits that really fit the mood of this 60 sex comedy. Nice numbers include the Latinized tracks "Romantic Bossa Nova", "Pleasure Seekers Bossa Nova", and "Zig A Sig A Ding Boom Bah". CD

A&M, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant 60s pop from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – best known for their key early songwriting work for The Monkees, but a heck of a great duo on their own! Boyce & Hart have a sparkly, sunshiney sound that's very much a part of The Monkees generation – a beautiful post-folk, post-surf blend of styles, and one that's served up with all the warmth and charm that made The Monkees so great – yet also with some cool twists and turns that make a record like this so great – the kind of chance-taking that A&M sometimes allowed its artists to take at the time! Backings are super-groovy – arranged by Artie Butler and Don McGinis – and titles include "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite", "Teardrop City", "I Wanna Be Free", "The Countess", "Population", and "Two For The Price Of One" – a great cover of a Larry Williams & Johnny Watson soul tune!

RCA/Sony (France), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A beautiful 60s album from Duke Ellington – one that features some of his more popular numbers, as you'd guess by the title – but captured in these sublime, sophisticated arrangements that really reflect the genius sound of his group during the later years! The tracks are familiar, and the arrangements are maybe never too way out – but they're also these mini-masterpieces in color and tone – carried off by a fantastic group of all-stars who've matured and grown as much as the Duke himself – Cootie Williams and Cat Anderson on trumpets, Lawrence Brown and Buster Cooper on trombones, Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, and Harry Carney on piano. There's a darkness in Duke's piano that's maybe missing from earlier versions of this material – that great modern undercurrent of the late years – and titles include "Black & Tan Fantasy", "The Twitch", "Perdido", "Solitude", "The Mooche", "Creole Love Call", "Take The A Train", and "Sophisticated Lady". CD features bonus tracks – "Caravan", "Wings & Things", and an alternate take of "Do Nothin Till You Hear From Me". CD

Herbie HancockFat Albert Rotunda ... LP
Warner, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
The start of funky funky Herbie Hancock! This album's the first to feature Herbie really breaking away from his straight jazz work – moving into a groove that's nice and funky, using electric piano along with acoustic, to forge the sound that he'd develop famously over the 70s. The album's got a harder, heavier sound than some of his straight electric ones – and it features a larger group with soloists that include Johnny Coles on trumpet and Joe Henderson on tenor – plus some sweet basslines from Buster Williams – all led by Herbie into a tight soul jazz flurry of excellent tracks! Includes the cuts "Fat Mama" and "Wiggle Waggle", both sample favorites, plus "Tell Me A Bedtime Story" and "Lil Brother". Classic stuff, and one of his best records ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents! Side one is the live set – and it's arguably better than any of the previous other concert recordings he did for the label – with a tighter, moodier feel that's almost more small club – with backing from a combo that features Charlie Boles on Hammond, Patrick Williams on trumpet, and Lee Gatling on tenor. Live titles include "Just A Little Love", "Sweet Little Angel", "Don't Answer The Door", and "Please Accept My Love". Side two is studio material, with some mighty sweet arrangements by Johnny Pate that almost bring a bit of funk into the mix at times – particularly on the drums which really groove things along! Herbe Lovelle handles the drum kit, and overall things are leaner than any previous Pate work with King – nice and raw, on cuts that include "I Want You So Bad", "Friends", "Get Off My Back Woman", and "Why I Sing The Blues".

A pretty great funk album from Jimmy – and very different than his other jazz work at the time! The record was produced and arranged by soulster Larry Williams, and most tracks have these raspy vocals that we're not sure are Larry's or Jimmy's. But whatever the case, the sound is great – and the tracks work well as messed-up funk numbers with a slight jazzy edge. We might compare the album to some of Larry's work for Okeh during the late 60s, or to later Johnny Hammond albums that feature vocals. Titles include "Number One", "Love Is Mission Impossible", "Zodiac Song", "Recession Or Depression", and "Jimmy Smith Is The Midnight Cowboy". LP, Vinyl record album

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Ultra-hip work from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – the kind of weird, wild, and unusual singles you'd be likely to find way down on the list of singles available on a jukebox – often with hand-written title cards, because the music was so obscure! The tunes here are all at a midtempo groove – the kind of vamping, bad-stepping work that's been rediscovered by the funk collecting underground in recent years – tunes that were originally issued on 45s and 78s, mostly on small labels – in modes that are heavy on R&B, soul, and blues elements. Titles include "Gibble Gobble" by Willie Wright, "Gonna Have Myself A Ball" by Lance Roberts, "Apache War Dance" by Earl Hooker, "Tiny Tim" by Chuck Daniels, "Cool Cool Cool" by The Clare Sisters, "Big John" by Titus Turner, "Sadaba" by Johnny Williams, "Cleo" by The Mark Five, "Lover's Curse" by Bracey Everett, "I Want To Love You" by Kenny & Moe, "Exotic" by The Rhythm Kings, and "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen.

VariousFatback's Soul Shop ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
If we had a shop like this in our neighborhood – we'd be broke! Fatback are (of course) the legendary 70s funk group whose records we've loved for decades – but what's not as well known is that they also ran a little storefront office known as the House Of Fatback, located in Queens, and home to some really funky music! The office not only served as headquarters for the group, but was also a place where they caught new talent, and kept one ear to the street for other artists to work with. In the years before Fatback themselves broke big, the group ran a label – also called Fatback – and recorded some excellent local talent on the New York scene – a mix of soul and early funk acts, handled with a level of quality that ranks right up there with the best indie soul of the late 60s. This great set features 16 tracks from the Fatback label, along with great notes that really get at their story – and contains a wonderful range of tunes that are all winners all the way through! Titles include "The Cat Walk" and "Little Bit Of Soul" by Gerry & Paul & The Soul Emmisaries, "You're My Everything" and "Who Will It Be" by Mary Davis, "Right Or Wrong" and "I Need You" by The Puzzles, "Why Don't You Let My Love Go" and "Got To Find A Way" by Jimmy Williams, "Put It In" and "Keep On Brother Keep On" by Johnny King & Fatback Band, and "Quiet Waters" by GP & The Soul Emissaries.

Johnny PateBucktown – Original Soundtrack ... LP
American International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 15.98
A funky treasure – finally unleashed! Bucktown was one of the best of the mid 70s indie blacksploitation films – thanks to some great starring work from Fred Williamson and Pam Grier – but for years, the soundtrack's never been available as an individual release. Now, this tasty heavy-vinyl set makes all the film's wonderful grooves finally available – presented in a great style that includes all the shorter moodier bits, the fuller longer funky tracks, and even a bit of sound effects and dialogue! The music was penned and conducted by Johnny Pate – of Shaft In Africa and Brother On The Run fame – and the tunes are a great blend of funky soundtrack styles that include full on big band, sparer snapping instrumentals, and even a few nice tunes with great use of moog! Titles include "Chase", "Stepping", "Bar Fly", "Check In", "Freeze", "Love Theme", "Call It In", "Sneaking It In", and "Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $5.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho". CD

Cultures Of Soul, 1970s/2011. New Copy ... $9.99
They're not kidding about the title on this one – although they might have added "weirdest" to the name, too! The songs here are all familiar ones, especially if you dig rare grooves from the 60s and 70s – but the versions you'll hear are definitely unusual – often some pretty obscure takes on funk and soul numbers, plus a few bits from other styles too – done up in even funkier versions than before, partly because the production is even rawer, but also because the overall execution is too! Latin vibes mix up with soulful rhythms, deep funk solos, and even some freaky fuzzy psyche-inspired moments – and titles include "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & The King Casuals, "Jungle Fever" by Afrosound, "Bang Bang" by Fruko & Sus Tesos, "Pastime Paradise" by Ray Barretto, "Cloud Nine" by Mongo Santamaria, "I Turn My Camera On" by Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, "Light My Fire" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "Scorpio" by Johnny Frigo, "Rat Race" by Antibalas, and "The Next Message" by The Mighty Mo & Winchester Seven.
