Bob Brookmeyer/Lalo SchifrinTrombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $10.99 18.98
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work from other great Verve talents too – a tight small group that features Gary McFarland on vibes, Jim Hall and Jimmy Raney on guitars, and Willie Bobo on drums – alongside some added percussion that really helps keep the bossa spirit strong! Tunes have that spare, soulful crackle that you'd find in the Stan Getz bossa sessions for Verve – except that trombone is the lead solo instrument here – and titles include "A Felicidade", "Col Bogey Bossa Nova", "Blues Bossa Nova", "Qual E O Po", "Chara Tu Tristeza", and "Samba De Orfeu". Samba Para Dos is a great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions!

Lalo SchifrinBlack Widow ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
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! CD

Warner (Japan), 1968. Used ... $11.99
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.

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!

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... CD
Warner (Germany), 1973. Used ... $8.99
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". CD

Aleph, 1968. Used ... $11.99
A recent recreation of the famous Lalo Schifrin score to The Fox – handled by Schifrin himself, with a sound that's expanded from the original! The set is a mellow batch of tunes, not nearly as jazzy or bossa as some of Schfrin's other soundtracks, but still with some nice moments overall, and a very high level of writing. This new package includes new liner notes, a poster, and archive photos from the film – and there's a total of 19 tracks, including "Lovers", "Frost Trees", "The Proposal", "Paul's Memories", "The Fox", and "Reflections".

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... About April 26, 2017
Fantastic lost material by Lalo Schifrin – recorded in a style that's very similar to the excellent work he was doing for Dizzy Gillespie's group in the early 60s! The record features Leo Wright, also from Diz's group, playing some excellent alto and flute – and Jimmy Raney plays guitar in a stretched-out modal way that works perfectly with Schifrin's Latin-tinged grooves. The whole thing's a very complex batch of Latin influenced jazz tracks – and the record is one of Schifrin's best from the time, and darn hard to find! Titles include "The Snake's Dance", "Kush", "Mount Olive", "Cubano Be", and "Sphayros". CD

One of Lalo Schifrin's greatest soundtracks ever – offered up here in a new version that's every bit as great as the super-rare vinyl one from the 70s! The recording is a new one – done by Schifrin and the WDR Big Band, but with exactly the same feel as the original TV soundtrack score. The tunes are pure Schifrin – a mix of jazz, bossa, and funk, always tight, and with a perfect sense of a groove! Plus, the special package includes new liner notes, photos, and a poster too!

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible – Mission Anthology ... CD
MCA/One Way, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
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. 22 cuts that include "More Mission", "Self Destruct", "Intrigue", "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All".

Lalo SchifrinPiano Strings & Bossa Nova (aka Insensatez) ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1963. Used ... $3.99
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements – in a style that's incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that's at once spooky and lovely – a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album's light years away from other "piano with strings" albums of the time – proof that Schifrin was easily one of the most imaginative forces of his generation, and an arranger who really helped reshape music in the 60s. Titles include the incredible version of "Maria" that's played quite often by Gilles Peterson – plus loads of other nice ones, like "The Wave", "Insensatez", "You And Me", "Murmurio", "Rapaz De Bem", "Rio After Dark", and "Time For Love".

A pretty darn rare Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – to a lost crime thriller that starred David McCallum, Stella Stevens, and Telly Savalas – all of whom are pictured in a nice collage-type movie painting on the front cover! The tracks run from mellow bossa to fast and jazzy, and the album also includes a few mellower Latin-tinged numbers to set the scene of the action. There's not as much funk as in Schifrin's other scores from the time – but it makes up for it with groovy passages and many great moments that make the album worth seeking out! Titles include "Charanga", "The Golden Trip", "Sol Madrid", "Fiesta", "Adagietto", and "Villanova's Chase". LP, Vinyl record album

A huge array of groovy genius from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – the South America jazzman who first rose to fame in the group of Dizzy Gillespie, the moved on to give us some of the coolest film scores of the 60s! This set brings together eight of Lalo's best albums from that period, plus a full concert from later years too – all in an overstuffed box that still has plenty to offer, even if you already own a few of the records inside! The set begins with four famous soundtrack albums by Lalo – Mission Impossible, More Mission Impossible, Mannix, and The Cincinnati Kid – but it then moves onto include two other albums that have never been on CD – the ultra-groovy Once A Thief & Other Great Themes, full of jazzy greatness – and the early 70s Rock Requiem – which features a sweet array of funk and psych! The set also features standalone CD albums There's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin On and Schifrin Sade – both of which demonstrate Lalo's instrumental talents away from the screen – and CD5 features the complete Jules Verne Festival Concert – recorded in 2007 by Lalo in Paris, as a special concert performance of film themes and jazz titles. CDs also features some bonus tracks – like the single "Dirty Harry" and "Latin Soul" – plus Jimmy Smith instrumentals, and other rare gems! CD

Dot/Universal (France), 1968. New Copy ... $15.99
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and hip than even the best of Schifrin's soundtrack work from the 60s! Some tunes certainly show the deft talent for arranging woodwinds and rhythms that first caught the ears of so many listeners on famous soundtracks – but in the setting of this record, away from any directorial needs, Lalo's also free to explore some groovier music ideas – and he really lets loose tremendously as the set rolls on! The titles alone should tell you the feel of the record – with names like "Secret Code", "Dissolving", "Vaccinated Mushrooms", "Wheat Germ Landscapes", and "How To Open at Will The Most Beautiful Window". CD also features four groovy bonus tracks by Schifrin – "Another Side Of Harry", "Blues A Go Go", "Lucille", and "Self Destruct". CD

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!

A pair of CTI 70s classics from Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Black Widow – funky 70s work from Lalo – 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. 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.

Towering Toccatta is 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". CD

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

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

Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
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! LP features 24 tracks in all – very nicely done! LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry FieldingEnforcer ... CD
Aleph, 1976. Used ... $11.99
A beautiful little score from Jerry Fielding – jazzy at times, funky at others, and often a fairly complex as well! The music's different from Lalo Schifrin's soundtrack for other Clint Eastwood/Harry Callahan films of the 70s – a bit more "human" at times, with a rich feel that reflects Fielding's long history in music – both on the jazz and soundtrack fronts. Some numbers have the dark, turgid quality of an Italian thriller from the period – while others take advantage of a groovier Hollywood style – using jazz players to inflect the tunes with a great deal of spirit, or sending home a theme with strings on the top and some bouncier basslines on the bottom. Titles include "Harry's World", "Prologue/Main Title", "Warehouse Heist", "Code Blue", "Rooftop Chase", "Raid On Mustafa's", "Kidnap Zap", "The Shooting Nun", and "Alcatraz Encounter". CD

Dizzy GillespieGillespiana/Carnegie Hall Concert ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... $2.99
A great burner from Diz – and one that features a large group, long tracks, and some stellar early work from Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was in Diz's group at the time, playing piano and contributing fantastic Latin-tinged arrangements that gave the band a whole new life. Other players on this session include Candido, Leo Wright, Julius Watkins, and Willie Rodriguez – and the tracks include "Africana", "Blues", and "Panamerica". An incredible live set from Dizzy Gillespie – one that has him working in stunning big band mode, but with all the depth and agility of a small combo! The set features variations on a number of classic Gillespie themes – including "Kush", "Manteca", "Ool Ya Koo", and "Tunisian Fantasy (Night In Tunisia)" – recast with that ever-growing Latin influence that Dizzy was picking up in the 60s, supported strongly by the presence of a young Lalo Schifrin, who plays piano on the set. Horn players include Dizzy, Clark Terry, and Nick Travis on trumpets; Gunter Schuller and Jim Buffington on French Horns; Leo Wright on sax and flute; and Don Butterfield on tuba – supported by rhythm from Schifrin on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Charles Lumpkin on drums. Tunes are awash in soulful solos and deeply colored hues – and titles include "Manteca", "This Is The Way", "Kush", "Ool Ya Koo", and "Tunisian Fantasy". CD

Philips, 1963. Used ... $7.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma". CD

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".

2 nice live sets – put together by Norm Granz, as a tour of the JATP all stars in Europe. Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall".

An overlooked vocal gem from Sarah Vaughan – recorded in the early 60s with some sweet arrangements by a young Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was just getting his start on the US scene at the time – and for the set, he's working in a mode that has some of the fuller, richer orchestrations used on other Vaughan albums of the period – but which also breaks out into some leaner and jazzier moments that remind us of his later work. Sarah herself is great – singing with that mature and almost world-weary tone that made so many of her Roulette sides so memorable. Titles include "More Than You Know", "Thanks For The Ride", "Just Married Today", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", "This Can't Be Love", and "Slowly". CD

Jazzclub (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
A very hip collection of older funky cuts – ones that have been sampled in recent years by hip hoppers, but which stand up plenty darn great on their own!

✨✧ Roy BuddDiamonds ... LP
Cinephile/Castle (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heist films always provided some of the best soundtracks of the 70's, and this one (starring Robert Shaw and Richard Roundtree, and issued in the US as Diamond Shaft) is no exception! 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!

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiQuel Pomeriggio Maledetto ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. CD features 23 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Antonio (Chocolate) Diaz MenaEso es Latin Jazz . . . Man! ... LP
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crackling little set from Latin percussionist Antonio "Chocolate" Mena – not to be confused with the Latin trumpeter who also went by the name of Chocolate! The album's got some wonderfully jazzy numbers – put together with arrangements from Duke Pearson and Lalo Schifrin, and a group that includes Pearson, Richard Williams, Walter Perkins, Seldon Powell, and Jerome Richardson – all of whom make for a session that's equally jazz-based as much as it is Latin-styled – almost in the manner of some of the best Latinesque work on Prestige from the same period. Tracks are short, but very powerful, and titles include "El Pega Joso", "Green Dolphin Street", "Tin Tin Deo", "Kush", "Con Alma", and "Mambo Jazz Opus 7". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFighting Back (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1982. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual later soundtrack from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – scored for an early 80s American thriller with Tom Skerritt in the lead – and done in a style that's much deeper than you'd expect! The core film score features a blend of melancholy strings that move along in some very moody passages – mixed with other numbers that carry more familiar currents of the jazz funk used in other thrillers of the period – kind of a Lalo Schifrin style at some points, mixed with the larger numbers that give a bluer feel to key moments. These funk tracks are a surprising change from Piccioni – almost more CTI in style at points – and they come into even greater play on the huge amount of unused tracks that are included in this 2CD collection – a total of 49 bonus tracks, in addition to the 15 titles that made up the original score. Together, the package delivers a whopping amount of music – along with full notes in English, and lots of images from the film! CD

✨✧ Cal TjaderSeveral Shades Of Jade/Breeze From The East ... CD
Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of Cal's great albums for Verve that mix jazzy vibes, Latin grooves, and kitschy "Eastern" scoring! Several Shades Of Jade is a killer batch of tracks that's right in line with Cal's best work from the 60's. It's got a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus takes of Lalo Schifrin's "The Fakir", "Borneo", "Song of the Yellow River", and "Almond Tree". Schifrin conducts and plays piano, and the group also runs through a very tight version of Quincy Jones' "Hot Sake". Breeze From the East is a bit more mellow, but still great, and with a rolling warm sound that works great with Cal's vibes. The record includes a nice early version of "Leyete", one of Cal's greatest tracks, plus "Sake & Greens", "Cha", "Shoji", "China Nights", and "Theme From Burke's Law". Very sharp packaging, and 2 bonus cuts included, for a total of 22 cuts in all! CD
