✨✧ Georges DelerueLa Promesse De L'Aube (Promise At Dawn) ... CD
Play Time (France), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful presentation of this haunting score by Georges Delerue – penned for a later project from the team of Jules Dassin and Melina Mercouri, and maybe some of the best music the duo ever had for one of their films! Delerue's at his evocative best here – working with the kind of well-pitched string arrangements that are a lot leaner than the previous generation of film composers, but oddly maybe even more powerful, too – that special style Georges could have for making the most with just a little, especially on some of the mellower moments, or the few tracks that might use a more evocative solo instrument. Titles include "Valse Diabolique", "Lenningrad", "La Poursuite", "Romain At The Beach", "Chanson De Nina", "L'Adieu Des Amis", and "La Valse Du Negresco". CD also features the bonus Mercouri vocal song "Chanson De Nina". CD

✨✧ Roy EldridgeLittle Jazz (with Roy Eldridge Joue Poure La Danse) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1950/1951. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great French material from trumpeter Roy Eldridge – a player who started in big bands, but sparkled even more in the "little jazz" world of small combos! The album features Roy's trumpet in some very hip groups – one a quintet with Don Byas on tenor and Claude Bolling on piano, another with Albert Ferreri on tenor and Raymond Fol on piano, and the last just a set of duets with pianist Bolling – which might be the coolest material on the set! Titles include "The Heat Is On", "Fireworks", "Hollywood Pastime", "Wild Man Blues", "Oh Shut Up", and "Une Petite Laitue". The CD also features the bonus album – Roy Eldridge Joue Pour La Danse – additional material recorded in Paris with help from some great American sidemen! Half the tracks feature Roy's trumpet in a quintet with Zoot Sims on tenor, Dick Hyman on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums – grooving in the relaxed, swing-based style that you'd expect from Eldridge's 50s work on Verve. Other titles feature a group with Gerald Wiggins on piano – and a few more feature a French combo with Benny Vasseur on trombone and Albert Ferrari on tenor sax! Tracks include "Nuts", "Goliath Bounce", "Black & Blue", "L'Isle Adam", and "Ain't No Flies On Me". CD

✨✧ Toni EspositoLa Banda Del Sole ... LP
Philips/Radici (Italy), 1978. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful blend of Italian jazz and Brazilian inspiration – served up by percussionist Toni Esposito with a warmly electric vibe! The album's an Italian one, but it's got a groove that reminds us of our favorite Brazilian fusion from the period – a criss-crossing of cultural modes that's a bit like the German gems explored on the Glucklich series, but with sweeter elements that really bring the whole thing back to Brazil! Lots of the vocals are wordless, scatting along with the percussion and basslines in a really nice way – and the album has a few interesting elements on mandolin and melodica too. The record's got a wonderful remake of Pharoah Sanders' "Hum Allah" – worth the price of the record alone – and other tracks include "Ballo In 7", "La Banda Del Sole", "Mugurru", "Quartetto", and "Il Lungo Viaggio".

✨✧ Gianni FerrioLa Poliziotta (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A groovy little soundtrack from Gianni Ferrio – every bit as great as you might guess from the image on the cover! The film's a 70s Italian comedy about a policewoman – and Ferrio's score is made up of jazzy moments, funky bits, and a few more warmly romantic themes – all wrapped together nicely with a great sense of depth and variety – not just the usual interplay of a few key melodies. There's a pretty lively feel to most numbers, and a bit of electric instrumentation in the rhythms is warmly matched with acoustic horns on the top – in a blend that's often quite different than the usual cop film sort of groove. Titles include "Almost Love", "Anonima Assassini", "Crescendo Trionfale", "Il Potere", "Azucar", "Rhythm & Sex", and "Step By Step". 2 bonus tracks: alternate takes of "Anonima Assassini and "Step By Step".

✨✧ Nico FidencoLa Ragazzina ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet little score from Italian composer Nico Fidenco – best known round these parts for his sultry work for some of the 70s Emmanuelle films, sounding equally groovy on this more obscure album from the time! There's a light groove throughout the album – sometimes a slinky Euro sex sort of vibe, other times a much more pronounced approach to funk – with a mix of electric and acoustic elements that includes vibes, keyboards, flute, piano, and other great touches – all recorded with the spaciousness and care you'd expect from the generation. Titles include "La Ragazzina", "Speed", "Monica's Love", "Sandra's Dream", "Monica's Mirror", "Sandra", "Motor Ship", "Duello In 3/4", "Sandra In Love", and "Monica's Flight". Reissued in a style that's like the original album – which was promo-only! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nico Fidenco/Luis Bacalov/Carlo Savina2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe/Franco Ciccio E La Vedove Allegre ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of groovy Italian comedy scores from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! 2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe has a cover that almost looks like a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis film poster – and the music is reminiscent of some of the scores for their movies, too – a series of playful passages that often set up some creative sonic elements to keep up with the comedy on the screen, mixed with "eastern" styles that fit the Japanese locale of the film! In a way, the music's almost a unique hybrid of the modes used in the pre-groovy period of Italian comedy, mixed with some of the exoticism of gladiator scores – unusual sounds from the team of Nico Fidenco and Luis Bacalov. CD features 15 tracks from the film – including the very nice "Judo Twist". Next is the later score to Franco, Ciccio, E Le Vedove Allegre – done in a style that's somewhat similar, but with some later 60s elements, including a touch of Hammond here and there. Carlo Savina did the scoring, in a manner that's recalls other work of his from the period – and the CD features a total of 11 tracks from the movie. CD

Philips/Mercury (France), 1958. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of Serge Gainsbourg's first recordings – a mixture of left bank chic, jazzy rhythms, and some of the strangest songwriting to grace the Parisian scene! All titles feature great backings by Alain Goraguer, Serge's longtime musical partner, who brings in some wonderful elements to the songs – embellishing them with cool vibes, offbeat piano, snapping snare drum, and bubbling bass to match the oddly-crafted lyrics of the tunes. Titles include "Ronsard 58", "Ce Mortel Ennui", "Le Poinconneur Des Lilas", "Douze Belles Dans La Peau", "Charleston Des Demanageurs De Piano", and "L'Alcool". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lallo Gori with I Cantori ModerniCome Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredibly groovy and fairly obscure soundtrack by Lallo Gori – with some sublime scat vocals by I Cantori Moderni! The film is Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (How We Robbed The Bank Of Italy), which kicks off, appropriately enough, with a sly, slinky kind of crime/spy flick groove, but from there it gets a lot more upbeat and sunny – it's a real gem! Includes many varied sequences on the title theme, "Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia", which range from stripped down flute, to baroque jazz, to uptempo Italo R&B, to eerie suspense sounds and beyond – often with the those flawlessly groovy Cantori Moderni vocals! 15 in all.

The Great Jazz Trio really stretch out here – taking each of the album's four songs at a mighty relaxed pace – which allows even more room than ever for the creative expression of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! The cover's got a slick look that might be more at home on a fusion record – but the set's all acoustic, and has this warm, personal vibe that's really tremendous – that special sound that the three legendary musicians brought to their great run of albums in this format! Titles include "Satin Doll", "My Funny Valentine", "Night In Tunisia", and "Round Midnight". LP, Vinyl record album

Colemine, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy rhythms and furiously funky percussion from Jungle Fire! NUSAU starts off with nice and raw before upping the instrumentation and intensity, finding a heated, but nicely gelled ballance with the horn section. "La Kossa" once again nails the Afro-Latin percussion vibe, but has more of a classic funk feel than the flipside in the bass and guitar grooves. Nice stuff! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Paul MauriatC'Est La Vie/Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2 ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of albums from French maestro Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD! C'Est La Vie is from a generation when so many other artists were moving their easy instrumental styles into disco grooves – but Paul Mauriat nicely finds his own path forward, and instead keeps things mellow – but while adding in some slinky funk elements that really make the record great! There's some nice keyboards, edgey guitar, and even sly drums in the larger backings – and the song choices keep things pretty groovy too – on titles that include "Ou Sont Les Femmes", "Il A Niege Sur Yesterday", "Lettre A France", "Pulstar", "Ainsi Soit-Il", "Desert De Neige", and "I Feel Love". On Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2, Paul Mauriat returns to the Brazilian vibe he explored on the previous volume – which means that the set mixes samba percussion, light bossa elements, and even some slight 70s funk with the maestro's more familiar charts – on a set of tracks that includes work by Caetano Veloso, Antonio Carlos E Jocafi, Baden Powell, and Ivan Lins! Titles include instrumental readings of "Foi Assim", "Pra Que Chorar", "Amigo", "Sonhos", "Odara", "D Joao", and "A Noite Vai Chegar". CD

✨✧ Mario NascimbeneEstate Violenta/La Prima Notte Di Quiete (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1959/1972. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of soundtracks from Mario Nascimbene – an Italian composer who handled some important films of the romantic 50s years, but also went on to do some great later work too! First up is Estate Violenta, a soundtrack that's maybe a bit more rich and orchestral than you'd guess from its title – still with a strong current of jazz, but not as much of a crime jazz mode than a style that uses some of the other cool styles that were coming into play at the start of the 60s in Italian cinema. These styles are in place a bit on the core EP that was the original soundtrack, but really open up even more on the 27 bonus tracks included with the CD – really beautiful music that strongly demonstrates Nascimbene's ability to paint pictures in sound! Titles include "Bombademento E Finale", "Primo Incontro", "Scena D'Amore", "Tema Di Maddalena", and "Canzone Di Rossana". Next up is an equally wonderful score – penned for the 1972 film La Prima Notte Di Quiete, and done with a very jazzy vibe – thanks to stunning solos from Italian tenorist Gianni Basso and American trumpeter Maynard Ferguson! Ferguson's solos are wonderful – blown with a great deal of soul over these strong string charts – almost more in a Art Farmer ballad mode, but with more of the Maynard bite! But the real treat is Basso, who plays with a rich warm sound that fills his tracks with somber emotion – loads of blue currents that make the music as strong as his own great jazz recordings. Titles include "Casa Abbandonata", "Solitudine Di Danielle", "Tema Psicologico", and "Titoli Di Testa". CD

Ernie AndrewsErnie Andrews Sings With The Fuzzy Kane Trio ... LP
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Ernie takes a hip trip from the west coast, and hooks up with the great Fuzzy Kane Trio – an extremely soulful outfit that flourished in the Baltimore scene of the late 60s, but only ever cut one other album on their own. Ernie's still in the pop soul vocal style of earlier albums – a mode that's got a bit of Lou Rawls, and some of the other ambitious crossover intentions of the LA scene of the 60s – but Fuzzy's work on the acoustic piano sweetly souls up the best tracks, and the album features some nice obscure tunes – which pushes it past the usual session of this sort. Titles include "Nearly", "July the 12th, 1939", "Say Hello To Yesterday", "Time To Hit The Street Again", "Free The People", and "Sometime When You're Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterHell's Belles (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a razor sharp edge to the groove! A few tracks have vocals, but it's the funk rock instrumentals that drive this one into pulp soundtrack classic status. Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove", "Chain Fight", "Dan's Theme", "Scoobee Doo" and the killer "Wheels (Main Title Theme)". This great limited edition CD version has a 4 bonus tracks made up of the full version of the end title song, medleys of shorter cues from the film, instrumental bits and more. "Travelin' Man", "Take It From Me (Source)/Gila Monster/Cathy Left Behind /Mongoose Gets Beans", "Gang Rides Through The Hills/Tosses Bike Over Bank/Snake Or Rope" and more. CD

Elmer BernsteinSons Of Katie Elder (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/La La Land, 1965. New Copy ... $19.99
A great 60s western with Dean Martin in the lead next to John Wayne – given a soundtrack by Bernstein that showcases some of the lighter elements that Martin brings to his performance – not comedic, but a nice balance to the usual John Wayne modes! This expanded version of the soundtrack goes way past the original album – to showcase the full color and range of Bernstein's score – balancing darker moments with more optimistic styles, all in that tonal richness that made him one of the most compelling American film composers of the 60s! The CD features 27 core songs from the film – plus 6 more bonus tracks that include some demo and alternate tracks too. Titles include "Hastings Manufactory", "Katie's Graveside Burial", "Mary's Visit", "The Sons Of Katie Elder", "Sheriff Ambushed", "Strange Procession", and "Dangerous Quarry". CD

Jack MarshallThunder Road – The Film Music Of Jack Marshall ... CD
La La Land, 1958/1959. New Copy ... $19.99
A great collection of rare soundtrack work by Jack Marshall – an artist you might know more for his instrumental albums on Capitol Records! The biggest part of the set features Jack's great score for Thunder Road – that excellent late 50s film that starred Robert Mitchum as a hot rodding bootlegger in the hills of Kentucky – a soundtrack that's probably most famous for the "Ballad Of Thunder Road", which had quite a life of its own! Most of the music here is instrumental, though – apart from that one great track – and is served up by Marshall in a mix of guitar and harmonica parts to set the hillbilly scene, plus fuller orchestrations at more dramatic or sensitive moments. CD features 24 tracks from the Thunder Road score – including "Radio Music", "Guitar Music", "Moonshine Run/Gangster Chase", "Trapped", "The Road Block", "Cabin", and "Lucky Chase/The Last Chase". Next is the score for Take A Giant Step – a film in which a young Johnny Nash must come to terms with prejudice and hatred in his suburban environment – given a much more sensitive musical treatment by Marshall. The few tracks in the score almost have a 50s TV playhouse vibe – gently emotive strings at some points, and some stock "rock" moments at others. Last up is music from The Rabbit Trap – sounds that are maybe in the more playful mode you'd know from Marshall's albums on Capitol – although not without some more sensitive elements too. CD features a whopping 37 tracks, 78 minutes of music, and lots of notes too! CD

Alfred Newman/Johnny MathisCertain Smile (expanded 2CD version) ... CD
Columbia/La La Land, 1958. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A 50s soundtrack classic – even if it was penned for a film that hasn't stood the test of time very well! Alfred Newman's one of those composers who always brings his a-game to the table – for a big film or small – and his music for this film adaptation of Francoise Sagan's famous book is every bit as great as his scores for larger budget productions of the time! The main theme alone is totally great – offered up here in instrumental and vocal versions – the latter by a young Johnny Mathis, and both of them dripping with just the right amount of sadness for the story. The rest of the music is wonderful too – lush, but not overdone – and with just the right sense of space to keep the orchestrations from getting too bogged down. Titles include "A Certain Smile", "The Market Place", "Farewell To The Sea", "The Riviera", and "Dominique's Decision". But even better, this massive 2CD version features the full album issued in the late 50s – plus the bonus film soundtrack, which comprises an additional 24 tracks, some never issued before! CD

Nelson RiddleBatman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/La La Land, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Nelson Riddle's finest moments of the 60s – the wonderful original soundtrack for the campy full length Batman film! The tunes have a totally excellent blend of the dramatic and the jazzy – often using full orchestrations, but in a tight way that goes for rhythmic passages and tight little themes – all hitting hard with a style that goes "Zap!" "Pow!" "Slam!" The approach is a fair bit like the crime jazz of the Henry Mancini generation, but has a bit more swing and pop – as you'd guess from the comic book source material. The CD features 29 original instrumental tracks all from the film (6 more than the previous CD reissue) – plus 3 bonus tracks that includes a few other little bits not by Riddle – all packaged with a 20 page booklet that's got lots of vivid images from the movie! 31 tracks in all – with titles that include "Flee For Your Life", "Dehydrated", "Batmobile To Airport", "Good Job", "Roger Wilco", "The Grotto", "Small Craft", "Batman Theme", and "Fine Finkish Friends".

Lalo Schifrin, Don Ellis, Jerry Fielding, & OthersMission Impossible – The Television Scores (6CD set) ... CD
La La Land, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $79.99
An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been issued to the public at all, by a range of composers we never even knew worked for the show! Over the years, the spirit of Schifrin's original style was greatly expanded – still with groovy cop and crime modes that mature nicely into the 70s, but also with some richer soundtrack elements that really flesh things out – and which take on special character from show to show, depending on the composers! In addition to material by Schifrin, the set also features passages from jazzy talents who include Jerry Fielding, Don Ellis, Benny Golson, and Duane Tatro – as well as contributions from other soundtrack legends like Gerald Fried, Walter Scharf, Jack Urbont, Robert Drasnin, and Richard Hazard – and the whole thing fetaures six very overstuffed CDs – each almost to the brim with music – in a box with an additional booklet of notes!

✨✧ VariousRhythm On The Radio – Oval Records Singles 1974 to 1987 ... CD
Oval/Ace (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual labels on the British scene at the end of the 70s – a small indie that first began by issuing sounds from the US, but which then went onto have a strong role in the growing new wave and Brit pop scene of the time – before moving into world music in their later years! The mix of cuts here is quite surprising at first, but soon falls into a cohesive groove – especially when Oval Records hit that point when they were becoming the farm team for acts that would break later on bigger labels – including a few entries here that might come as a real surprise! The package is very well done – the usual Ace Records sensitivity to the history behind the music – and given that Oval Records titles never got much circulation on our side of the Atlantic, the whole thing's a real revelation to American listeners like us. Titles include "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich, "One Heart One Song" by Pete Fowler, "The Lull" by Reluctant Stereotypes, "Tell That Girl To Shut Up" by Holly & The Italians, "Rhythm On The Radio" by ABC, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Woodhead Monroe, "Don't Depend On Me" by Direct Drive, "We'll Be Together" by Bosca, "Highlife Time" by George Darko, "The Jack That House Built" by Jack N Chill, "C'Est La Danse" by African Connexion, "Brickyard Blues" by Helen Shapiro, "I'm On A Rocket" by Harry Kakoulli, "English Guns" by Airstrip 1, "Don't Be Mistaken" by First Light, and "Hippy Street" by Local Heroes SW9.

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.

✨✧ VariousSing It High Sing It Low – Tumbleweed Records 1971 to 1973 ... CD
Tumbleweed/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really special sounds from a short-lived label – Tumbleweed Records, a company that was conceived in LA, and born in early 70s Denver – perfectly suited to focus on the hipper strands of singer/songwriter material of the time! The vibe here is a bit like the best work on the early Asylum Records, with maybe more of the diversity of Blue Thumb – and, like both of those special imprints, there's an above-the-usual level of quality going on here – great songwriting, understated production, and artists who really feel free to do their thing in the best way possible! Many of the tracks have kind of a homespun vibe, but top-shelf presentation – tight, but never slick – and the occasional twang really brings the right sort of humanity from time to time. Titles include "Turn Of The Century" and "Abyss" by Robb Kunkel, "Colorado" and "Hick" by Danny Holien, "Rosewood Bitters" by Michael Stanley, "Sweet As Spring" and "Do On My Feet" by Dewey Terry, "Late Letter" by Pete McCabe, "Plain Talk" by Arthur Gee, and "Sunday Sherry" by Arthur Gee Whizz Band.

✨✧ VariousToujours Chic – More French Girl Singers Of The 1960s ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible female pop from 60s France – not weepy ballads or old school Paris numbers, but the kind of hip-snapping, all-groovy material that made the 60s French scene so great! Loads of these tracks are new to our ears (and we love French grooves a lot!) – and this volume of the series seems to dig even deeper than before – through a range of rare 7" EP material and singles, to come up with some killer tracks that will move way beyond the bigger cuts you might know from Francoise Hardy or Brigitte Bardot. The production and instrumentation is superb throughout – often with these funky currents that make these tracks feel years ahead of their time – and as usual with Ace, the whole presentation is great – from ultra-clear sound through full notes on the music too. Titles include "Rouge Rouge" by Christie Laume, "Pour La Gloire" by Annie Philippe, "Demain" by Zouzou, "Cours Si Tu As Peur" by Fabienne, "A La Fin De La Soiree" by Sheila, "Cette Nuit" by Pussycat, "Angel Of Sin" by Charlotte Walters, "Les Prisons De Sa Majeste" by Delphine, and "Le Nenuphar" by Stone.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 2 – 1969 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing second chapter to this wonderful series – and like the first, a perfectly-chosen batch of tracks that shows the return of country styles to rock music at the end of the 60s! Most of the artists here are those of the LA scene – who had a surprisingly strong respect for the sounds of Bakersfield and Nashville – but the set also includes some other artists who really fit into the mix well – almost all of them big names of the time, or of later years – but working here in a sound that's still very fresh, and free from all the cliches that crept into country rock in the 70s! Bear Family really took a lot of care with the whole thing – and the set features over 50 pages of notes, telling the track-by-track tale of country rock from 1969 – a set of 23 titles that includes "Level With Your Sense" by The Corvettes, "Sin City" by The Flying Burrito Brothers, "Texas Me" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "Drug Store Truck Driving Man" by The Byrds, "Up On Cripple Creek" by The Band, "Make Me Smile" by Poco, "We Need A Whole Lot More Jesus" by Linda Ronstadt, "Ruby" by The First Edition, "I'm Movin On" by Elvis Presley, "Vaccination For The Blues" by The Sanland Brothers, and "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass" by Buck Owens.

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Grupo AguaTransparencia ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
The cover image has a nicely rough-edged quality, and the music inside does too – a really organic statement of genius from Brazil's Grupo Agua! The group play very close to their roots – mixing quick acoustic guitars and percussion in a level that almost feels Spanish in its complexity, but which definitely has a more South American vibe overall – especially when wood flute is added into the mix, which creates a further lyrical level alongside their vocals! These guys are hardly the touristy sound of the 60s Andean music boom – and instead, they seem to take all the currents of that sound, add in a hip 70s sense of harmony, and really send the music forward with a freewheeling vibe that's very unique. The album has echoes of the 70s rootsy folk movement with some of the more underground work in Brazil – but it's also completely unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "La Luna Llena", "Esperanzas", "El Colibri", "Volver A Los 17", "Tarkeada", "Caldera", and "La Semilia". CD

Eden AhbezEden's Island ... LP
Del-Fi, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredibly evocative record – one of the strangest of its kind, and an audio treasure that we've loved for years! Eden Ahbez first came into public prominence as the man who wrote "Nature Boy" for Nat King Cole – a dark, moody tune that was as mysterious and earthy as the man who wrote it! This album was recorded nearly a decade after Cole's original hit, and features Ahbez almost in Moondog-like territory – working in an amazing setting of odd instruments and exotic percussion – but also singing in this almost spiritualist kind of way! The record's got plenty of ties to the exotica scene of the late 50s – but also stand out from the pack with a mad vision that's all its own – a strange intersection of lines that one might draw between Moondog, Martin Denny, and Anton La Vey! Tracks include "The Wanderer", "Eden's Island", "Tradewind", "Full Moon", "Mongoose", "Market Place", "The Old Boat", "Island Girl" and "La Mar". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniBarocco & Romantico (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The title only partly gives this one away – as sound library genius Alessandro Alessandroni turns towards the world of baroque and romantic music for inspiration – yet also manages to serve up something that's very much his own in the process! This isn't one of those records in which classical compositions get an easy listening spin – and instead, Alessandroni has a way of evoking ancient ideas while still also using lots of groovy Italian soundtrack modes – a bit like the way the occasional baroque theme or electric harpsichord would turn up in some groovy 60s film scores. Both of those elements appear here, alongside other keyboards, some acoustic guitar, and other instrumentation – used in a way that's as evocative as some of Alessandro's film work. Titles include "Sonata Allegra", "Canzone Romantica", "Largo Barocco, "Minuetto In La Magg", "Giga Per Mandolino", "Mazurka Moderata", and "Variazione Romantiche". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniInchiesta (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CMT/Cometa (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A sweet funky set from the 70s – originally recorded as a sound library session, but handled by Italian soundtrack maestro Alessandro Alessandroni! You might know Alessandroni's music best from the 60s, and this set is a later updating of the same groove – one that brings in a bit more electric keyboards, some bouncier basslines, and drums that snap nice and hard on the funky numbers – then lay back on the sweet mellow moments. A few cuts have vocals – ala I Cantorni Moderni – and the whole thing has a warm, sexy 70s groove that's right up there with the best Italian work of the scene from the time. Titles include "Femminismo", "Collettivo", "La Metropoli", "Pubblica Informazione", "Prima Eta", and "Ultimo Soggiorno". Very groovy stuff! CD features 5 bonus tracks too – never issued before! CD

Mose Allison TrioBack Country Suite ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A rare early Mose Allison album – a mostly-instrumental outing that focuses on Allison's wonderful talents on the piano – already honed by this time through participation in a number of key sessions with other leaders! Side one of the album features the beautiful "Back Country Suite" – an extended piece of shorter numbers, composed by Allison with a wonderfully evocative feel. The depth of the work is wonderful, and shows that even at an early point, Allison was forging a unique voice in jazz that went far beyond simple work on piano as an accompanist. Other players on the set include bassist Taylor La Fargue and drummer Frank Isola – and side two features the tunes "Blueberry Hill", "I Thought About You", "In Salah", and "One Room Country Shack".

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "Nono", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". Full LP that reissues the original 10" sets. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Pacific Jazz pressing with deep groove, in the red cover, with some aging and small seam splits.)

It's definitely a bossa nova world when Laurinda Almeida's around – given that the player first got the whole sound going in the 50s, then returned the favor in the 60s with some great albums like this for Capitol Records! The set's a bright blend of LA jazz and bossa rhythms – played by a group that also features Howard Roberts on electric guitar, Jimmy Rowles on organ, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Shelly Manne, Victor Feldman, and Chico Guererro on lots of percussion! Almeida plays guitar and cavaquinho on the session – and titles include "Rio Bonito", "Lisbon Antigua", "More", "Danke Shoen", "Till Then", "Say Wonderful Things", and "Sukiyaki".

GNP, Mid 50s/1975. Very Good ... $1.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever seen from LA singer Ernie Andrews – much better known for his 60s sides, but sounding great here overall! Side one of the album's from a 1958 date arranged by Gerald Wiggins and featuring Eric Dolphy on alto sax – tunes done in a slightly bluesy mode that brings out the deepest side of Andrews vocals. Side two's from a few years before – 1956 – and features some slightly tighter arrangements from Benny Carter, but still a nice jazz base overall – and as with the first date, the group is filled with top-shelf players from the LA scene. Titles include "Song Of The Wanderer", "Bernie's Tune", "Slide Mr Trombone", "Travelin Light", "Lover Come Back To Me", and a unique vocal version of Teddy Edwards' "Sunset Eyes".

Polished Paul Anka in the best sort of way – that version of the singer/songwriter who was moving past crossover pop, and maybe finding a more mature space for his music! The approach is definitely adult contemporary, but with a bit more of that hook-heavy style that Anka did so well from the start – and the album's production by David Wolfert brings in an undercurrent of soulful keyboards that round out the sound nicely. Titles include "Don't Ever Say Goodbye", "Brought Up In New York Brought Down In LA", "Starmaker", "Listen To Your Heart", "Starting All Over Again", and "This Is Love". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)
