Dizzy Gillespie & Lalo SchifrinUnicorn/Free Ride ... 12-inch
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Excellent jazz funk! Both tracks are pulled from the legendary Free Ride album – a late 70s reunion between Diz and Lalo Schifrin, and a record that stands today with some of the best funky fusion of the 70s. "Unicorn" is amazing, and has this great compressed guitar that sounds totally excellent. "Free Ride" is pretty darn nice, too – and both tracks appear to be extended versions available only on this 12" single. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinBlack Widow ... LP
CTI, 1976. Very Good ... $11.99
Funky 70s work from film score maestro Lalo Schifrin – served up with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time! Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound over the top of the funky arrangements – and there's plenty of nice guitar work – either by Eric Gale or John Tropea – which gives the cuts some nice choppy funky bits that drive them a bit harder than you might expect! Titles include an amazing funk remake of "Quiet Village", plus "Dragonfly", "Black Widow", "Baia", "Turning Point", and a version of the "Jaws" theme! LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinBossa Nova – New Brazilian Jazz ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1962. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together nicely – with lots of jazz, jazz, jazz! Lots of short bossa tracks, including "Boato", "Bossa Em New York", and "Patinho Feio". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinBullitt – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you like his stuff, we can bet that this will become one of your favorites. The record's darn tough to find, and this reissue is a real treat to have around! Cuts include "Bullitt", "Room 26", "On the Way To San Mateo", and "Shifting Gears". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinDissection & Reconstruction Of Music – Marquis De Sade ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
The Marquis De Sade never sounded so sweet! For some strange reason, Schifrin decided to pay a musical hommage to De Sade with this one – but fortunately, he's not punishing himself with the subject matter at all, and is sticking to his jazzy bossa guns. The arrangements have a tight Verve mid 60s groove to them – with breakout solos on piano and flute, slightly baroque scoring that mixes strings, harpsichord, and some straighter jazz playing, and a good focus on strong rhythm playing throught. A breezy treat that would make any of us drop a paddle and kick back for a cocktail – if we had the chance! Titles include "Bossa Antique", "The Wig", "Old Laces", "Beneath A Weeping Willow Shade", "Renaissance", and "Troubadour". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinIns & Outs – Lalo Live At The Blue Note ... CD
Aleph, 1982/2002. Used ... $3.99
The first two tracks are from a live date recorded at the Blue Note in 2002. Ins & Outs is a great return to form for Lalo Schifrin – and a straight album of jazz tunes, recorded after years of late 70s disco work! The album almost returns Schifrin to his 60s years with Dizzy Gillespie (except for the fact that there's no trumpet on the set) – and the tunes have a great mix of jazz, Latin, and soundtrack influences – of the sort that first got Lalo noticed back in the early days! Lalo's playing acoustic piano throughout – and pretty nicely, too we might add – and titles include "Chano", "Ritual","Ins & Outs", "Con Alma", "Manteca", "Paraphrase", "The Fox", and "Love Poem For Donna".

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible ... CD
Dot/Hip-O, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Plus, this CD also features a few tracks from the hard-to-find More Mission Impossible soundtrack – for a total of 14 cuts that includes "More Mission", "Self Destruct", "Intrigue", "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All".

Although you may have some of the "hit" Lalo Schfrin soundtracks, like Bullit or Mission Impossible, this 18 track compilation features some great stuff (and rare & unreleased tracks) blended with more familiar sounds, to create a very cool, very groovy portrait of one of our fave soundtrack composers. The material is excellent, and selected with a real sensitivity that will interest new fans and won't bore old ones. Solid all the way through, with soooo many jazzy groovy tracks that you'll be playin' it over and over again! CD

Lalo SchifrinTalkin Verve ... CD
Verve, Mid 60s. Used ... $3.99
An excellent little set that compiles some of Lalo's groovier sides for the Verve and MGM labels! The set focuses more on Lalo's jazz than soundtrack work, which makes it a nice companion to the Mission Impossible "best of" set on Motor Music. Some tracks are from albums under Lalo's own name as a leader, and other are from albums by Dizzy Gillespie, Cal Tjader, and Bob Brookmeyer. Whatever the source, though, the music's all pretty darn groovy – and the CD's a swirling mass of bossa, Latin, and jazzy jazz grooves! Titles include "Chorale", "The Wave", "Old Laces", "Samba Para Dos", "En Salon Mexico", and "The Chains". CD

Lalo SchifrinTowering Toccata ... LP
CTI, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Electric 70s work from Lalo Schifrin – with a tight uptempo funky sound that's similar to his strong "cop show" soundtrack themes of the time! This album's a pretty great testament to Lalo's durability as one of the great composer arrangers – sublime stuff from the late 70s, and a record that really works nicely alongside Schifrin's music for films. Lalo's got a great crew for the set, too – including Joe Farrell and Jeremy Steig on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Gadd and Andrew Smith on drums, accompaniment on keys by Chuck Spangler and a host of others! Titles include "Eagles In Love", "Macumba", "Theme From Most Wanted", "Theme From King Kong", and "Roller Coaster". LP, Vinyl record album

Like the title says, a mix of show and Hollywood stuff, with emphasis on the latter. All cuts feature the Schifrin's sweeping piano over a tight small combo sound.

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet & Orchestra – Experience/Tensity/Dialogues ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features a recording of Axelrod's "Tensity" and William Fischer's "Experience In E", both conducted by Fischer, a hip modern soul-oriented arranger, with a sound that's not dissimilar to Axelrod. The last piece on the album is a nice long one by Lalo Schifrin, "Dialogues For Jazz Quintet & Orchestra", which is also conducted by him as well. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Almond Music MachineHollywood Blues ... LP
Deram, 1970. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent album of funky jazz – arranged and conducted by British organ and sax player Johnny Arnold – but also featuring some incredible work from an assortment of west coast soul jazz players that include Charles Kynard, Curtis Amy, Hadley Caliman, and Vi Redd! As the title kind of implies, the groove's in a swinging soundtrack sort of mode – almost a Lalo Schifrin 60s style, and one that blends together the organ lines with some totally sweet work on vibes, flute, and tenor sax. There's a wonderful Verve-like feel going down here – although in some way, the album's even hipper than anything on Verve from the time! Titles include "Agadir Sunset", "It's The Water", "Hot Rod", "Slipping Easy", and "Funkville U.S.A.". LP, Vinyl record album

The groovy groovy soundtrack to the first Matt Helm film – starring Dean Martin as a 60s master of intrigue! Elmer Bernstein handled the soundtrack with a really great approach – jazz, swinging, and with plenty of mod 60s bits – very much in some of the same territory as Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro at the time! And equally great, the record also includes a few great vocal tracks by Vikki Carr – "The Silencers" and "Santiago" – both of which are very groovy numbers that swing with a wonderfully cheesy sort of sound! Other tracks are instrumentals, and titles include include "Tun Tzee", "Tina's Waltz", "Matt Helm's Blues", and "Early To Bed". CD

Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The LP's overflowing with tracks, including a few bonus mixes, and there's even 2 vocal numbers that feature The Three Degrees. Titles include "The Thief", "Beauty & The Bass", "Diamonds", "Party Piece", "Thief On the Prowl", and more! Nice notes, and some nicely funky crime themes, too! Nice gatefold cover, too!

Celso Fonseca & Ronaldo BastosJuventude – Slow Motion Bossa Nova ... CD
Universal, 2001. Used ... $9.99
Slow Motion Bossa Nova certainly fits this one – a beautiful album of lush jazzy arrangements, done in the 60s style of artists like Roberto Menescal or Lalo Schifrin, but with added touches of soulful vocals by Celso Fonseca. The assemblage of musicians on the record is great – and players feature old and young bossa talents that include Joao Donato, Robertinho Silva, Marcio Montarroyos, Luiz Alves, Daniel Jobim, and Jaques Morelenbaum. The album's far more than a 60s bossa reprise – as it's filled with original tunes that sparkle with the gentle easiness of some of Ivan Lins' best work of years past. Titles include "Satelite Bar", "Samba E Tudo", "A Voz Do Coracao", "Dylan Em Madrid", "Feito Pra Voce", "Miles Ahead Of Time", and "O Sorriso De Angkor". CD

A lost chapter in the Stan Getz sound of the 60s – an album that features Stan blowing in front of some beautiful backdrops set by Lalo Schifrin and Claus Ogerman! The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory lines that sweep and swirl with his best 60s work. The sound is incredible – a whole new level of genius to a player who'd already recorded in so many other strong modes at the time – and titles include "Sleeping Bee", "Nitetime Street", "Early Autumn", "Charade", "Love", and "Reflections".

Dizzy GillespieComposer's Concepts ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s/1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Nice 2LP set that brings together some of his most striking sessions of the early 60s recorded for Emarcy. This set includes pieces composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin played by a large ensemble led by Benny Carter – with Dizzy as the main soloist, and work by players that include James Moody, Phil Woods, Emil Richards, Francisco Aguabella, and Schifrin himself. Tracks are long, and have complicated introductions – then easily give way to the sort of flowing grooves that Schifrin was penning often at the time. Titles include "The Conquerors", "The Chains", "The Swords", "The Empire", and "The Legend Of Atlantis". The set also features Diz playing tracks from Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After". Also included are songs from the soundtrack for the lost Shirley Clarke verite drama The Cool World. Mal Waldron wrote the material for the score, and Diz plays the music with a moody emotionality that you don't often hear in his other 60's work. The recording was made by his great group that included Kenny Barron and James Moody, and the titles include "The Pushers", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", and "Street Music".

Dizzy GillespieNew Wave ... LP
Philips, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade".

Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

Jerry GoldsmithLast Run – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, 1971. Very Good ... $7.99
An excellent soundtrack to this early 70s thriller that starred George C Scott! Jerry Goldsmith has come up with some strong action themes that are very much in a Lalo Schifrin mode – mixing guitar, electric harpsichord, and strings with a harder-edged groove so that there's a lot of space in the overall blend of elements – allowing each one to step out nicely, identified on its own! Even the mellower tracks are great – with an airy feel that recalls some of Michel Legrand's best action scores at the end of the 60s – with colors that flow out and really give the record a sense of soul! Steve Lawrence sings "The Last Run" in a mode that recalls Matt Munro's performances on other thriller soundtracks – and other titles include "Claudie's Stockings", "The Trap", "Border Crossing", "Rickard Escapes", and "Double Cross".

Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $36.99
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest European talents of the 70s – bandleader Peter Herbholzheimer, working here at the head of his Rhythm & Brass group, and his Certain Lions & Tigers ensemble! Although Herbolzheimer's got a clunky name, his sound is incredibly fluid and tight – a large group approach to funk that rivals some of the best American work of his time – including classics from Lalo Schifrin, Johnny Pate, and other key maestros of the blacksploitation era. Peter's got a way of taking a large group of players and really making them groove – a sound that's kind of an electrified extension of the styles first laid out at MPS by the Clarke-Boland Big Band, but served up with a hipper, funkier 70s approach to rhythm. Like the CBBB, Herbholzheimer's groups often feature American players – such as Art Farmer on trumpet or Herb Geller on saxes – alongside more familiar MPS talents like Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Dieter Reith on organ, Ferdinand Povel on flute, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Sigi Schwab on guitar – joined by the legendary Sabu Martinez on a few of the best sessions here! The 4CD set is a massive discovery in music – as it features not only Herbholzheimer's Rhythm & Brass albums, but also records under the group names Certain Lions & Tigers and The Galactic Light Orchestra. The package has some of the same records of the previous MPS collection of Herbholzheimer's work – but also includes some other material too – the full albums Soul Condor, Galaxis, Live Im Onkle Po, Hip Walk, Touchdown, and I Hear Voices CD

GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 35 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

Roger Webb, Pete Moore, & OthersHustlers – Dramatic Music From The Chappell Library 1970 to 1977 ... CD
Chappell/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Dramatic music, but pretty darn groovy music as well – served up here in a set of work from the under-reissued Chappell sound library in the UK! The work here is full of jazzy currents, but often set to tight larger arrangements that have all the best appeal of the sorts of soundtrack material you'd get in 70s TV work – really appealing themes mixed with sharper action moments – served up in this wonderful blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation that easily rivals the best soundtrack material from the time by folks like Lalo Schifrin or Henry Mancini! We'd not heard most of these tunes before, and every one's a winner – in a set list of 23 tracks that include "Sky Diver" by Lee Mason, "The Bright Lights" by Roger Webb, "Countdown" by Cy Payne, "Magazine" by Jack Arel, "Rainbow Bridge" by Roger Webb, "The Sun Seekers" by James Clarke, "Top Gear" by Lee Mason, "Black Fire" by Cy Payne, "Downtown Incident" by Roger Webb, "Black Shadow" by Pete Moore, "Breakaway" by Tony Osborne, and "The Hustlers" by Roger Webb.

Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $34.99
A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect example of the lyricism and Latin influences he'd picked up from Lalo, mixed with the soulful expression that was common for Dizzy's combos in the 60s. Leo plays flute on about half the record, and he's working with soulful modern players that include Richard Williams, Charlie Persip, Art Davis, and Junior Mance. Titles include "Two Moods", "Blues Shout", "Sigi", "Indian Summer", "Autumn Leaves", and "The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

Rhino, 1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s. Used ... $5.99
A dream set – for our ears, at least! We'll happily admit that in the years before we became music-addled hipsters, we were TV-addled youngsters – and back in the 60s and 70s, we watched a heck of a lot of it! This 40 track set takes us back to those great days with a huge mess of famous TV themes – many that we'd nearly forgotten about, plus loads of familiar numbers, re-presented with much better sound, and complete notes on who performed them. You'll be amazed once you start checking this out, and you find how many songs that you like were performed by folks that you've probably already got in your record collection. Titles include "And Then There's Maude" by Donny Hathaway, "Come On Get Happy" by The Partridge Family, "Charlie's Angels" and "Barney Miller" by Jack Elliott, "Love Boat" by Jack Jones, "Good Times" by Jim Gilstrap and Blinky Williams, "Theme From SWAT" by Rhythm Heritage, "Batman" by Neal Hefti, "Ballad Of Jed Clampett" by Flatt & Scruggs, "Dragnet" by Ray Anthony, "Jeannie" by Hugo Montenegro, "Munster's Theme" by Jack Marshall, "Hawaii Five O" by Mort Stevens, "Mannix" by Lalo Schifrin, "Angela (Theme From Taxi)" by Bob James, and "Chico & The Man" by Jose Feliciano.

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiQuel Pomeriggio Maledetto (The Perfect Killer) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), New Copy (reissue)... About September 15, 2016 (delayed)
Sweet funky soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – one of the maestro's best late 70s film scores, and one of his grooviest too! The music here has all the sharp, soulful elements of early 70s American soundtracks by Quincy Jones or Lalo Schifrin – complete with wah wah guitar, sweet funky flute, bumping basslines, and even some mighty nice keyboards – all served up without ever pushing things too far over the top – so that the balance of funk, jazz, and more scene-setting elements is perfect – that really sort of special balance you get only on the few best records by Jones or Schifrin. And while Cipriani can sometimes veer towards the more slinky, sexy side of the spectrum, he hardly does so here – as even the mellower moments have a nice subtle sort of groove, and continue the spirit of jazz.

✨✧ Luiz BonfaLuiz Bonfa – Composer Of Black Orpheus Plays & Sings Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve/Polygram (Japan), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the earliest of the classic Verve bossa nova sessions of the 60s – and a wonderful showcase for the talents of guitarist Luiz Bonfa! Most of Bonfa's previous recordings were done in a very spare or solo mode – and this set makes a nice change by adding in some larger orchestrations – yet still handled with great bossa sensitivity by Oscar Castro Neves and Lalo Schifrin – themselves very big up-and-coming talents at the time! The sound is bright and breezy, as you'd expect from Verve at this time – and Bonfa's a lot livelier than usual, and even sings on a number of cuts – with a charming quality that's a bit like Joao Gilberto. Titles include "Bossa Nova Cha Cha", "Sambalamento", "Vem So", "Samba De Duas Notas", "Domingo A Noite", "Quebra Mar", and "Adeus". CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

Booman, 1961/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later issue of a crack live set that was recorded in 1961, when Dizzy had a young Lalo Schifrin in his group, playing the piano, and providing these great arrangements that broke Dizzy out of the be bop bag, and into a more Afro Latin groove. Leo Wright's on alto and flute, and the set list includes "Desafinado", "Kush", "Pau De Arara", and "Lorraine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie HarrisBossa Nova ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the session! Titles include "Mima", "Samba Para Dos", "Cev Y Mar", and "Whispering Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing.)
