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

John Douglas/Brian GascoigneCrack In The World/Phase IV ... CD
La La Land, 1965/1974. New Copy ... $19.99
Two obscure sci fi soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is 1965's Crack In The World – scored by John Douglas with a mixture of orchestral modes to illustrate the dramatic scientific bent of the narrative – brooding brasses, airier woodwinds, and some robust passages that burst out strongly with the torrent of action on the screen! Titles include "Love Scene", "No Stopping It", "Magma/Off Sheetwater Island", "Avalance", "A New Moon", and "Stephen Is Ill". Phase IV is something else entirely – a 70s sci fi film that gets a very different soundtrack approach from Brian Gascoigne – whose tracks here are all quite long, longer than seven minutes each, and work almost as mini narratives in sound – as the darker moments are illuminated by occasional lyrical touches, which are then suppressed as more atonal insect-sounding elements win in the end!

Don Ellis/Brad FiedelFrench Connection Collection (French Connection/French Connection II/Popeye Doyle) ... CD
La La Land, 1971/1975/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Great thriller soundtracks back to back on one CD – the soundtracks for both French Connection films, both handled by funky jazzman Don Ellis – plus the even rarer score for the later Popeye Doyle film, by Brad Fiedel – packaged here with other rare bonus tracks too! The music by Don Ellis is really incredible – a real cut above other 70s cop and action soundtracks, with a dark edge that shows that Ellis had been listening to some of the hipper European soundtrack composers of the time, but was still also cool enough to kick in with a badass kind of groove whenever he could! The instrumentation on the tunes is very odd – familiar, yet askew – as trumpet, guitar, and keyboard bits come off with some very weird effects. The sound of Popeye Doyle is a bit different – given that the film was an 80s TV addition to the French Connection narrative – with Ed O'Neil in the lead role that was previously handled by Gene Hackman. But Brad Fiedel's score is still pretty nice – definitely more 80s in its instrumentation, but handled with a mode that echoes the Ellis years, with the flavor of a decade later. This 2CD package has way more material than the previous issue – with a total of 48 tracks from the first two films – and 29 more from Popeye Doyle – a whopping 77 tracks in all, with some great notes too!

Jerry Goldsmith/Lionel NewmanBandolero ... CD
Project 3/La La Land, 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy! The music was conducted by Lionel Newman, and it's often got this sense of spareness and space that really makes things magical – sounds just hanging there in air, isolated instruments moving in Morricone-like fashion, yet in ways that still occasionally have some of the boldness you'd expect from Jerry Goldsmith too. The themes are often personal, almost romantic – yet never soppy, and occasionally inflected with exotic elements that really keeps things interesting. CD features 28 tracks in all – the full original album, music from the film, and bonus cuts as well – with titles that include "El Jefe", "The Imposter", "Main Title", "The Violator", "The Bait", "Ambushed", "A Bad Day For Hanging", and "Sabinas".

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 ... $99.99
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!

Dimitri TiomkinWild Is The Wind ... CD
La La Land, 1957. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful 2CD set of music from Dimitri Tiomkin – a set that not only features the rare album of Wild Is The Wind, but which also includes the never-issued film soundtrack as well! Both recordings are rich and expressive – that emotive approach to scoring that Tiomkin developed in the 40s, but presented here with a slightly more focused style that's very nice – especially on some of the tunes that echo older European touches in the melody. This lavish package features very detailed notes, and includes a total of 42 tracks in all – including "Bene's Bedroom", "Let Him Go", "Horse Chase", "Memories Of Rossana", "Ange", "Bene Kisses Gioia", "Wild Horses", and "Wild Is The Wind" in a number of variations – including a vocal take by Johnny Mathis.

✨✧ Hoyt Curtain, William Hanna, & Joseph BarberaJohnny Quest ... CD
La La Land, 1964. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Music from an ultra-cool kid cartoon of the 60s – sounding almost better here away from the screen than it did in the TV show! The main theme of Johnny Quest has a great current of mod jazz, and there's a fair bit of that on some of the other tracks too – modes that usually feature a larger ensemble with great horn work, in a style that's maybe almost the sound that you'd get if Henry Mancini were scoring a cartoon – with all the richness of color that might imply! Other tracks are more scene-setters, but still quite far from the usual modes for a cartoon – and although the music's credited partly to the show's creators, the Hanna-Barbera team, we're guessing the real genius comes from the music direction of Hoyt Curtain and Ted Nichols. 2CD set features material from a number of different shows – including "Dragons Of Ashida", "The Robot Spy", "Arctic Splashdown", "Calcutta Adventure", "Treasure Of The Temple", "Attack Of The Tree People", "Terror Island", "The Mystery Of The Lizard Men", and "The Curse Of Anubis" – plus other shows too, the main themes, and even some bonus tracks!

✨✧ Harold LandHarold In The Land Of Jazz (with bonus track) ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard-burning early work from tenorist Harold Land – exactly the kind of date that set him apart from other west coast players of the 50s! Although he was part of the LA scene of the time, Harold Land grooved a lot harder and louder than his cool jazz contemporaries – and this album's a perfect chance to hear the underground bop scene of which he was a cornerstone. The tunes are amazing – and even the familiar numbers have a real edge, thanks to sharp arrangements by Harold and Elmo Hope. Equally great is the group – which features an unusual US appearance from Swedish trumpeter Rolf Ericson, who's a surprisingly soulful fit for the sound of the session – plus Carl Perkins, the legendary sideways pianist, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Frank Butler on drums. Titles include "Delerium", "Smack Up", "Grooveyard", "Lydia's Lament", and "Nieta". CD includes the bonus track "Promised Land". CD

✨✧ Red Mitchell-Harold Land QuintetHear Ye!!!! Hear Ye!!!! ... CD
Atlantic, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from a very unique little group – the short-lived union of bassist Red Mitchell and saxophonist Harold Land – heard here in one of the hippest dates from the LA scene of the early 60s! Mitchell's a well-known name from more straight ahead sides of the 50s, but working here with Land he really hits a great groove – that harder sort of soulbop sound that was coming out of LA for a few brief years in the 60s – played with a sense of tightness and fire that matched the best work of the time in New York! The whole group here is great – and the amazing Carmell Jones is in the group on trumpet, alongside Frank Strazzeri on piano and Leon Pettis on drums. The solos are great, and the writing is too – with some lively lyrical original compositions that include "Comara", "Pari Passu", "Catacomb", and "Triplin Awhile". A great bridge between Land's earlier sessions under his own name, and his later partnership with Bobby Hutcherson! CD

✨✧ Nimbus CollectiveLive In Lotus Land ... CD
Nimbus, 1987. New Copy 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost session of spiritual jazz – recorded in LA in the latter half of the 80s, but with a soaring, righteous vibe that's right up there with the 70s scene! The group here is incredible – an all-star array of the best talents working for Nimbus Records – Nate Morgan on piano, Rickey Kelly on vibes, Jesse Sharps on reeds, Danny Cortez on trumpet, Joel Ector on bass, and Derek Roberts on drums – all moving with the cohesiveness of a well-honed small combo, in territory that's right in line with some of Morgan's most glorious recordings for the label! The use of Kelly on vibes is especially nice – as he's a player we've always loved, but hardly ever get to hear in a setting this ambitious – and his presence on the record makes the whole thing sound even more magical and majestic. Tracks are quite long, with a soaring, searching feel – driven on strongly by Morgan's piano, and topped by some great explorations by Sharps. Titles include "Retribution Reparation", "Big Spliff", "A Bientot", "The Goat & The Ram Jam", "Mfaconi", "Mrafu", "Distant Vibes", and "Journey Into Nigritia". CD

✨✧ Curtis CounceExploring The Future ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. Used ... $7.99
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got the mix of modernism and soul bop leanings you might expect from the players – a really fresh approach that comes off especially well in the non-iconic production style of the Dootone label – a mode that really let the players do their own thing, and break out from some of the tighter restrictions of other LA labels on the scene. Frank Butler completes the quintet on drums – and titles include "The Countdown", "Into The Orbit", "Race For Space", "Move", "Angel Eyes", and "So Nice". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – the previously unreleased "Foreplay", plus unedited takes of "Move" and "The Countdown". CD

King PleasureSource (Original Moody's Mood/Golden Days) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on jazz-based tunes! The first album's pulled from his Original Moody's Mood For Love set for Prestige, which was itself a compilation and features "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Red Top", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "I'm Gone", "Funk Junction", "You're Crying", "Don't Get Scared", "This Is Always', and "Exclamation Blues". The second LP's the hard to find Goldne Days set, a beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. 21 tracks in all.

Max Roach & Clifford BrownBest Of Max Roach & Clifford Brown In Concert! ... LP
GNP, 1954. Very Good+ ... $19.99
It's hard to overstate the influence of Max Roach and Clifford Brown on the west coast scene of the 50s – as the two players helped draw out the bop sound of LA that was quickly getting lost in the cool jazz shuffle of the time, and gave it a strength and focus that not only made the group one of the strongest of the time, but which also sparked new life and a hardbop generation on the LA scene! This classic set of live recordings was one of the first great Brown/Roach moments – recorded during 2 different concerts by Gene Norman Presents, and featuring some great tenor work by LA giants Teddy Edwards and Harold Land, plus some piano by the amazing "sideways" player Carl Perkins, as well as Bud Powell's brother Richie – a key factor of the group's studio recordings on Mercury, and a player who would perish in the same accident that took the life of Clifford Brown. Titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "I Can't Get Started", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Jordu". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1970. Good ... $16.99
A masterpiece of messed-up LA funk – and one of the crowning moments in the career of Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Charles and crew do an excellent job with all the tracks – most of which are more open ended than some of their earlier ones, and run on for longer than usual with some good trippy instrumental moments that really stretch out the groove from their funky 45 days. The album includes the stoner funk classic "High As Apple Pie", done here in two "slices", plus the classic "Express Yourself", a monster number that still sounds great every time we hear it – even though it's been used on commercials and sampled plenty of times over the years! Other tracks include "I'm Aware", "Love Land", and "I Got Love" LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible record from the great Sven Libaek – a soundtrack for a land-based TV adventure that's every bit as great as his underwater music from the 70s! The style is very jazzy, and heavy on vibes and woodwinds – sounds that really showcase the best sound of the growing Australian jazz scene at the time, and its particularly strong influence from the LA scene, both cool jazz and 60s soundtracks – as well as some key European elements as well! Rhythms are wonderful – lively and loping, but also very gentle too – maybe an influence from bossa nova, but also very individual too. A gem through and through – and tracks include "Bush Theme", "Nature Walkabout", "Lonely Australian Landscape", "Fun Music", "Danger Elements", and "Excitement". LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary/OJC, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing album by the great lost altoist Jimmy Woods! Woods is a key part of the LA postwar jazz scene – with an alto style that's a link between Ornette's modernist tone and the more inside playing of other LA boppers. In a way, he's sort of a soul jazz Anthony Ortega – with the same sort of high track record on albums, keen talent for writing, and a unique vision that's barely gotten any exposure over the years. Here, he's working with a crack group that features Carmell Jones on trumpet, Harold Land on tenor, and a young Andrew Hill (billed as Andrew Hille!) on piano. All tunes are originals by Woods, this record displays his unique, introspective sensiblity in both his performance, and compostion. Titles include "Conflict", "Coming Home", "Apart Together", and "Aim". CD

The session's a great meeting of LA modes – with Sheldon blowing harder than usual, and Land cutting in the sort of edges that always made his sessions in the town kick a bit more than most.

Solos include great work on tenor by Harold Land – who's really coming into his own here – plus Jack Sheldon on piano, and the tremendous Curtis Counce on piano – a player who would pass away not long after this set.

Nice mellow LA funk, played by Lee Oskar with help from a lot of his bandmates in the group War.

Oskar's harmonica playing is processed in a very cool way that almost completely hides its origins, and which gives it a lot of cool sounds and tones that you wouldn't expect.

✨✧ Al Di MeolaLand Of The Midnight Sun ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A real 70s standout from guitarist Al Di Meola – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of most of his albums from the decade! The record's one that broke Al's talents out to so many different groups – yet never in a way that waters down his sound, nor dims his genius for a solo. Al plays a host of guitars – electric, and both six and 12 string acoustic – the latter of which are especially beautiful, and handled in a balance between European virtuoso modes, and some of the more rhythmic elements of the American fusion scene. Speaking of fusion, the other players on the date really help set the tone – Chick Corea on keyboards and piano, Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes and mini-moog, Stanley Clarke on bass, and both Steve Gadd and Lenny White on drums – each setting a different pace when they appear. Titles include "The Wizard", "Suite Golden Dawn", "Short Tales Of The Black Forest", and "Land Of The Midnight Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

DalindeoSlavic Souls ... CD
BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
A new sort of a shift for Dalindeo – as you might guess from the title – as the group adds in a bit of slavic roots to their usual jazzy groove! The core instrumentation is still live jazz, but the group also touch on some older Finnish tango modes with the rhythms, and work with the increased use of electric guitar we've heard on some of their more recent efforts – all of which makes for a sound that's unlike anything else you've probably heard! The tenor and trumpet tie together beautifully, creating rich waves of sound with lots of jazzy energy – while the guitar has a classic electro twang at times, soaring out over the heavy percussion and drums. Two tracks feature a guest vocalist – and titles include "Avalanche", "Hips & Curves", "Tell Me", "Bolero For Miss B", "Tarantella Finlandese", "Johnny's Nightmare", and "Slavic Souls". CD

Gamelan Semar PegulinganGamelan Semar Pegulingan – Gamelan Of The Love God ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautifully evocative work on the Balinese gamelan – music that's maybe not as sharp as other recordings from that particular island – with a warmly flowing vibe that comes from the melodic cascading of tuned percussion, vibes, and gongs! There's still a focused, rhythmic feel to the music – but an approach that's maybe not as intense as some of the starker Balinese gamelan recordings – almost languorous at points, maybe in keeping with the "love god" mentioned in the title – with a sort of ebb and flow of sounds that's completely hypnotic! Titles "Tabuh Gari", "Gambang", "Tabuh Pisan", "Barong", "Sinom Ladrang", and the extended "Legong Kraton Playon", which takes up most of side two! CD

AliveCall It Jazz ... LP
Redwood, 1981. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The second album by this excellent all-female San Francisco jazz combo – a live date that's even more cooking than their debut! As before, there's a sweetly breezy style to the record – that hip SF sound of the 70s – with echoes of Braziliana and soul amidst the group's jazzier leanings – all wrapped together with a sound that's tight, but never uptight! The female vocals give the music a feel that's like Janet Lawson, Sheila Landis, or some of the hipper European singers of the 70s – and instrumentation is mostly acoustic, save for a bit of Fender Rhodes. Titles include a version of Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing", plus "Greeting Song", "Call It Jazz", "Too Bad", "Golden River/Golden Dream", and "Heaven Is In Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Dining RoomsNumero Deux ... CD
Guidance, 2001. Used ... $6.99
A classic set from one of the best groups of the downtempo generation – and one of the few whose work we still turn to all these years later! The Dining Rooms move in the same space as early Kruder & Dorfmeister or Mo Wax, but also bring in some jazzier elements at times too – just the smallest kernels of the sorts of sounds that would later land them on Schema Records – but used in really nice ways, to give their music a lot more depth than most of their contemporaries. Titles include "Chorus Of Flames", "Sei Tu", "Pure & Easy", "Invocation", "Cosi Ti Amo", "Luzy", "Maria", and "False Start". CD

Harry BelafonteIsland In The Sun (5CD set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. Used 5CDs ... $88.99
All the important early work of Harry Belafonte – brought together in a really wonderful set! The package features all his important early sides for RCA – and also includes earlier material for labels like Roost, Capitol, and Jubilee – some of which show Belafonte as a postwar jazz singer, working with arrangers like Pete Rugolo or Howard McGhee! As usual with Bear Family, the presentation is amazing – as the set comes with a heavy hardcover book, filled with photos and notes – to accompany this overstuffed 5CD package! CD

Clarke Boland SextetCalypso Blues ... CD
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Rare tracks by the Clarke-Boland Sextet – a small group offshoot of the funky Big Band that was led by Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland – and which featured some of the key soloists in the group! The lineup here includes Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, Joe Harris on percussion, and Jimmy Woode on bass – plus Clarke and Boland on drums and piano, respectively – a wonderful group that has an incredible sense of rhythm, and comes up with loads of wonderful modal numbers throughout! The vibe is wonderful – and the collection's a great look at this unusual combo – filled with fire and soul – and proof that in the jazz world, at least, great things can happen when global boundaries are crossed. Titles include "Con Alma", "Invitation", "Sconsolato", "Lilemor", "Just Give Me Time", "Love Hungry", "Ensadinado", and "Man From Potter's Crossing". CD

EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Quite possibly the best of Cleveland's albums for Mercury during the 50s – a tight hardbop set of tracks recorded with a septet that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Benny Golson on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Charlie Persip on drums. Tracks are more open-ended than on some of Cleveland's other albums, with more room for soloing. Titles include "Posterity", "A Jazz Ballad", "Jimmie's Tune", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Goodbye Ebbets Field". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles EarlandCharles Earland Anthology ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Magnificent! Charles Earland may well be our favorite-ever jazz organist – and after you hear this set, he'll probably be yours too! Charles really didn't emerge as a name until the beginning of the 70s – and although that decade did some nasty stuff to some of the 60s best organ players, Earland managed to really get a heck of a lot out of the decade, twisting and turning his style with all the changes in arrangements and instrumentation, yet always keeping it real, laying down killer solos and funky grooves that rank with some of the best organ work of his generation! This 2CD set is the first to really pay tribute to Earland's genius – and it's a massive batch of tracks the spans his early years at Prestige Records, and moves into his work for labels like Mercury, Columbia, and Muse. Disc 1 features "funky organ grooves" – 10 tracks from Prestige and Muse with a straight heavy soul jazz funk groove, cut with monster players like Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Gary Chandler, and Virgil Jones. Tracks on the set include "Murilley", "Spinky", "Betty's Dilemma", "Sing A Simple Song", "Morgan", "My Favorite Things", and "Sing A Simple Song" – and the grooves are hard and funky all the way through! Disc 2 features "jazz funk and beyond" – beginning with Earland's spacier jam cuts on the Leaving This Planet session for Prestige, then moving into his jams on Arp and Electric Piano for Mercury, and some of his later R&B funk cuts for Columbia. Most of this work's never been on CD before – and the wealth of Earland's talent here will take you way past his early Black Talk years. Titles include "Phire", "Coming To You Live", "Red Clay", "Intergalactic Love Song", "Cosmic Fever", "Betty Boop", "Let The Music Play", and "Over & Over". CD

Red GarlandSolar ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used ... $10.99
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige – as the hollow-body guitar tones bring some much bluesier inflections to some of the tunes, offset by more chromatic runs that really illuminate others. Red's own piano is still wonderfully soulful, and presented here with a pointed sense of economy on some numbers – and rhythm is by Sam Jones on bass and Frank Gant on drums. Titles include "Marie's Delight", "This Can't Be Love", "Blues For News", "I Just Can't See For Looking", and "Solar". CD

Benny BaileyGrand Slam (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Tremendous work from trumpeter Benny Bailey – a musician who doesn't always get the chance to record as a leader, but one who always blows us away when he does! Benny in this setting is way different than in his work with bigger bands like the Clark/Boland Big Band, or the Quincy Jones orchestra – and instead, he has this way of stepping out strongly, with very individual phrasing – and crafting these really long, expressively soulful solos that he's never get to cut in a large group setting. The vibe here is very similar to Benny's wonderful album with tenorist Billy Mitchell – long tracks with a nice sense of bass at the bottom – and the group features Charlie Rouse on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, Richard Wyands on piano, and Billy Hart on drums. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Reflectory", "Let Me Go", "Thelonious Assault", and "Who's Bossa Now". CD features two bonus alternate takes too! CD

Benny BaileySerenade To A Planet ... LP
Ego (Germany), 1976. Very Good+ ... $79.99
One of the greatest jazz records ever! By the time of this 1976 release, trumpeter Benny Bailey had already had quite a history – working with Quincy Jones in his early years, and recording for MPS with the likes of Nathan Davis and the Clark Boland Big Band, as well as some of the best other players in Europe. This set's Benny's masterpiece – a soulful batch of tunes that feels like it was lifted from the catalog of Strata East, but which is played by a quintet that features Europeans Ferdinand Povel on tenor, Joe Haider on piano, and Isla Eckinger on bass – as well as American Kenny Clarke on drums. The vibe is perfect – and the group's harmoniously searching with a strong modal groove on nearly every track. Titles include "Aquarian Moods", "Neptunis", "Little B", and "The Kicker". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear and two slightly-bumped corners – but this is still a very nice copy.)
