Bob Brookmeyer/Lalo SchifrinTrombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $9.99 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!

Warner (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $44.99
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 on wax – and cuts include "Bullitt", "Room 26", "On the Way To San Mateo", and "Shifting Gears". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinCincinnati Kid ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
This one's got a bluesy jazz approach – set by Ray Charles' version of the title theme, and followed through by Lalo's great instrumental tracks – which mix strings, soul, and just the right jazzy touches to keep things moving along with a subtle groove. Ttiles include "The Chase", "Dialogue In The Rain", "Melba", "The Game", "The Cinncinnati Kid", "The Cock Fight", and "Shooter". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinDissection & Reconstruction Of Music – Marquis De Sade ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
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 SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Lalo SchifrinGypsies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1978. Used ... $6.99
An ambitious set of funky jazz tunes from Lalo Schifrin – cut in the clubby style of some of his later CTI work, but also done with some interesting instrumental flourishes from track to track – which gives the album some of the depth of his soundtrack work of the 70s! The album's got a "gypsy" spirit in the compositions – sometimes touched with a bit of acoustic guitar – but overall, the main groove is electric, laid down by lots of keyboard grooves from Lalo and Mike Melvoin, which are matched by these soaring horn lines that are nice and soulful, and really deepen the groove! Titles include "Fortune Tellers", "Ring Around The Moon", "Prophecy Of Love", and "Pampas". Great CD version features new mastering, new notes, and bonus tracks that include radio versions of "Moonlight Gypsies", "Fortune Tellers", and "Prophecy Of Love". CD

Lalo SchifrinMan On A Swing/President's Analyst ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy ... $22.99
A pair of rare soundtracks by the great Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Man On A Swing – an obscure mid-70s murder mystery, given a great deal of depth and class from Schifrin's music – which is often surprisingly jazzy, despite the setting of the film – almost with the care of some excellent late night LA noir, and in the territory of Johnny Mandel for its sensitivity and color, yet still served up with all the Schifrin sense of swing. Titles include "Rosehaven Motel", "Maggie's Theme", "Evelyn Story", "Wills' Trance", and "Forest Finale". Even cooler is Lalo's amazing score for The President's Analyst – a totally groovy soundtrack that was literally our first introduction to his genius, back when we were kids! Schifrin's at his 60s best here – jazzy, groovy, playful, and able to step between so many wonderful styles – from the Brasil 66-ish vocals of "Hey Me", to the playful parody of military themes on other numbers, to some of the sexier tunes that show up as the plot moves on – almost Lalo's remaking of A&M modes to illustrate mainstream America in the late 60s. Titles include "Total Sound", "Hey Me", "The Long Walk", "The Nest", "Sidney's Flight", "Fast Boat To Moscow", "Telephone Trap", and "Sidney Plans Escape". CD

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinNo One Home (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1979. Used ... $9.99
A sweet set of fusiony soul from Lalo Schifrin – a great little record that's almost better than most of his other late 70s efforts, including some of his soundtrack work! The album's in the same territory that Quincy Jones was hitting at the time – at its core, a set of funky electric jazz – but done with an expansive approach that also brings in soulful vocals on most tracks, really hitting some nice R&B-styled fusion grooves! Sylvia Smith is the lead singer on most of the vocal tunes, and other players include west coast soul jazzers like Ndugu Chancler, Oscar Brashear, Paul Jackson, Ronnie Foster, and Patrice Rushen – a great lineup that really keeps things tight, and with a vibe that's different than Schfrin at CTI. Titles include "Memory Of Love", "Middle Of The Night", "No One Home", "Enchanted Flame", and "Oh Darlin Life Goes On". Great CD package – a hardcover book, with new notes and mastering – and bonus tracks "No One Home (edit)" and "No One Home (inst)". CD

Lalo SchifrinPiano Espanol ... LP
Tico, 1959. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A very unusual early chapter in the career of Lalo Schifrin – and a record that's a fair bit different than most of his famous bossa, jazz, and soundtrack work! The sound here is much more New York Latin than the Brazilian modes that show up in other Schifrin work – with orchestrations that nicely set the scene for bolder piano lines on the keys – often in a style that's a bit more dramatic than you'd expect from Lalo, and underscored by some great hard percussion at the bottom! Most tunes are quite lively, with a really crackling Latin groove – and titles include "Jungle Fantasy", "Hulablues", "Caravan", "Capricho Espanol", and "El Cumbanchero". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinRock Requiem ... LP
Verve, 1971. Very Good ... $7.99
A bizarrely baroque session – one that's a requiem "for the dead in the Southeast Asia war", and which takes the form of a hippy-dippy mass. Lalo's at the head of the group – leading musical performances by the likes of Tom Scott, King Errison, Mike Melvoin, Howard Roberts, Dennis Budimir, Emil Richards, and other LA studio hipsters, as well as a vocal performance by the Mike Curb Congregation, and lead singer Alexander Saint Charles. The whole thing's a lot more gospel hip than rock, and it's really a lot more like the kind of album you'd catch Galt MacDermot or David Axelrod recording than Schifrin. Titles include "Final Prayer", "Offertory Verse", "Sanctus Benedictus", "Agnus Dei", and "Introit". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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".

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!

Lalo Schifrin/Earl Hagen/Richard LaSallePlanet Of The Apes TV Series ... CD
La La Land, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99
Pretty great work for the short-lived Planet Of The Apes TV show in the 70s – a brief spinoff of the films, done with a surprisingly similar style – and with some excellent soundtrack music that's really a cut above the usual for the time! The bulk of the music here is by Lalo Schifrin – although some episodes are scored by Richard LaSalle, Earl Hagen, and Lionel Newman – the the vibe is similar to the film, with an orchestral approach at the core, mixed with exotic touches, spooky elements, and some darker dramatic passages! The 2CD set features a huge amount of music from the show – over 2 hours of listening, with very detailed notes – and the set features music from the episodes "Escape From Tomorrow", "The Good Seeds", "The Gladiators", "The Trap", "The Legacy", "The Deception", "The Surgeon", "The Interrogation", and "Tomorrow's Tide" – plus extra songs from the credits.

Lalo Schifrin/Kenny AscherSerial ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
A double-length release of soundtrack music for early 80s film – with the original Lalo Schifrin score for the movie, and a completely unused additional score by Kenny Asher! Schifrin's in prime territory throughout – perfectly fitting the film's parody of Northern California culture of the 70s with bits of jazz, funk, exotica, and occasional larger orchestrations – all used in these short flourishes with a nice range of instrumentation. The score starts out with a vocal number – "A Changing World" – sung by Michael Johnson, and with a number of instrumental reworks throughout. Next up is the unused score from Kenny Ascher – not just a few tracks, and instead a total of 28 numbers in all – often done in modes that aren't that different from Schifrin's music, but maybe with a smoother sort of AOR polish overall – one that would have fit the images on the screen equally well! As usual with Quartet, the package is wonderful – lots of notes and images, and a total of 58 tracks on 2CDs. CD

✨✧ Al Hirt with Lalo SchifrinLatin In The Horn ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums ever from trumpeter Al Hirt – thanks to some great arrangements from Lalo Schifrin! The "Latin" in the horn is a bit subdued here – not as firey as the title might make you think, but with a majestic, noble sound – one that has Al blowing a mixture of Brazilian and Spanish themes in a slightly dramatic way, underpinned by groovy Schifrin arrangements that have the sweeping feel of his cinematic work of the 60s! There's less bossa than you might expect, but the setting is still pretty darn great – and the Latin themes really take Hirt past his usual hoke of the time. Titles include "Manha De Carnival", "Taboo", "Baia", "Gringo A Go Go", "A Sky Without Stars", "Be True To Me", and "Desafinado". CD

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. Includes 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

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!

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 overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, and tight fast rhythmic tunes.

One of the last albums that Stan Getz ever cut with larger arrangements – a surprisingly nice late 70s session that features backings from Lalo Schifrin! Most of the tunes on the set are Schifrin originals (save for one dodgy number from Evita!) – done in a sweetly flowing soundtracky style that works perfectly with Stan's breezy horn – as Getz stretches out beautifully over the bigger charts, recalling earlier experiments of this type done on Verve – including one album with Schifrin. Instrumentation's got some light Latin touches – but mostly in a fuller orchestral mode, with percussion sneaking out of the strings – and titles include "Children Of The World", "Livin It Up", "Street Tattoo", "Around The Day In Eighty Worlds", and "You Me & The Spring".

Philips, 1963. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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".

Limelight, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who was inflecting his sound with a lot of South American grooves. The work's 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 Chains", "The Swords", "The Empire", and "The Legend Of Atlantis". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieNew Wave ... LP
Philips, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
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".

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 Cadillac", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

The album was originally issued in 1976 as a small-run sound library record, and it's a masterpiece of keyboard grooves – spare and dark, with a mixture of moody and moogy grooves that lie somewhere between the American sound of CTI and Kudu. All tracks are great, and the album's got a warm finish that gives it a deeply soulful feel – a quality level that's high enough that would have made it a hit, were it issued over here in the US at the time. Titles include "Terefic War", "The Big Mameluk", "Moving Grooving", "Devil's Train", "Sex Girl", "Blue Circuit", and "Tabla Minor". CD

Jerry GoldsmithOur Man Flint/In Like Flint ... CD
MGM/Intrada, 1966/1967. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of spy spoof gems – back to back on a single CD! First up is Our Man Flint, which features excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with some spookier instrumental touches – either on electric guitar, sax, or a "tortured" Thomas organ and a Solovox – and the overall feel of the album is on a par with the best work of the sort by Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro! Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". In Like Flint continues Jerry Goldsmith's great run of grooves for the Flint spy spoof films of the 60s – working in a style that's a lot more complex than Lalo Schifrin or John Barry, but still every bit as groovy! Goldsmith's got this excellent style of swirling together strings, instrumental solos, and lots of cool offbeat elements – all with a sound that's often jazzy, but pretty unusual too – maybe in the best territory of Piero Piccioni over on the Italian scene! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Warren Barker – who bring their most playful modes to the album – and titles include the vocal numbers "Where The Bad Guys Are Gals" and "Your Zowie Face", plus "Ahh Yer Father's Bob-Lip", "Mince & Cook Until Tender", and "Lost In Space".

Peter HerbolzheimerHip Walk – The Complete Polydor Recordings (Soul Condor/Galaxis/Live Im Onkle Po/Hip Walk/Touchdown/I Hear Voices) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $34.99
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

Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (brick cover) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A great little live set – ostensibly a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with 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", "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Bop 'N' Boogie".

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Very Good ... $2.99
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits/Golden Boy ... CD
Mercury, 1963/1964. New Copy ... $8.99 18.98
Classic Quincy Jones from the 60s – a pair of records that really show why his jazz skills were unlike anyone else! Quincy Jones Plays Hip Hits is a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". Golden Boy is a sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats across the disc in a wonderful way! Aiding Quincy in the album are a host of top-line jazz players – including Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods on saxes – plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, and Jim Hall on guitar! Although titled after the show Golden Boy, only a few cuts here are from that musical – and the rest include Quincy Jones originals and some cool covers, given the Q twist. Titles include "Seaweed", "The Witching Hour", "Hard Day's Night", "The Sidewinder", and "Theme From Golden Boy", done in 2 versions, both great! CD

Mike LongoTalk With The Spirits ... LP
Pablo, 1976. Very Good- ... $11.99
Dizzy Gillespie always had the hippest piano players. In the 60s, it was Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and in the 70s, it was the great Mike Longo, who gave Diz's best records a slow loping slightly funky groove that was perfect for Dizzy's trumpet style! This killer album by Longo was produced by Dizzy, and it features Gillespie on congas and vocals on one cut, plus a super-hip group that includes Harold Vick, Virgil Jones, Bob Cranshaw, and Mickey Roker. Longo plays acoustic piano throughout, but the set's got a similar loping groove to some of his best electric work – with a nice mix of soul, funk, and Latin, and a very moody soul jazz sound! Tracks are all long, and titles include "Roma", "Talk With The Spirits", "The Proclamation", and "Wyyowa". LP, Vinyl record album

Morton StevensHawaii Five-O ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good ... $13.99
If Hawaii was this funky, we'd move there in a minute – and honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if this record did a heck of a lot for the image of state back in the day! The soundtrack is one of our all-time favorites – a driving batch of larger orchestrations that is heavy on percussion, filled with jazzy riffs, and which makes great use of electric bass to round out the bottom nicely! Mort Stevens goes way beyond the typical cop show groove on this one – filling up the record with rich colors, unique tones, and some great inflections on the horn passages that charge each tune with a mad level of excitement. There's some great instrumental touches in the set too – like occasional fuzzed-out guitar, Hammond organ, and even a bit of sweet flute and soulful sax – giving the whole thing a feel that reminds us of Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. Includes the massive "Hawaii Five-O" theme, plus the cuts "Call To Danger", "Up Tight", "Blues Trip", "The Long Wait", "The Floater", "Beach Trip", "Operation Smash", "McGarrett's Theme", and "Front Street".

Pat ThomasMoody's Mood ... LP
MGM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A pretty hip album of jazz vocal numbers by Pat Thomas – made even hipper by arrangements from Claus Ogerman and Lalo Schifrin! The style of the record's a bit like Lorez Alexandria's work from the same time – part jazz, part soul, and all-solid all the way through vocally – with a deeper sense of soul than most other singers of Pat's generation. Things get a bit flowery at times, but Pat's vocals are always strong – and really stretch out through the lush arrangements on the record in a way that's extremely captivating. Includes versions of "The Cliff Dwellers", "Baltimore Oriole", "Don't Wait Too Long", "Dreamy", "Detour Ahead", and "Stranger On The Shore". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)
