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

Lalo SchifrinBlack Widow/Towering Toccatta ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. Used ... $9.99
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. Includes an amazing funk remake of "Quiet Village", plus "Dragonfly", "Black Widow", "Baia", "Turning Point", and a version of the "Jaws" theme! 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

Lalo SchifrinDirty Harry Anthology ... CD
Aleph, Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
Nice one! Clint Eastwood will forever be remembered for his groundbreakin tough guy work in the Dirty Harry films – but equally famous are Lalo Schifrin's funky soundtracks for the movies! The work is some of Schifrin's best – a mix of the jazzy style he created in the late 60s, and a funkier 70s cop theme edge that was sort of the white answer to blackploitation scoring that was happening at the same time. Most of this material was never properly issued on vinyl, and there's a whopping 19 tracks of material, with a sound that will blow your mind – especially if you only know Lalo Schifrin's 60's work. Titles include "Dirty Harry's Creed", "Scorpio's Theme", "Sudden Impact", "Stake Out", "Robbery Suspect", "The Bait", "Palancio", "Ray Of Light", and lots more! CD

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinLalo=Brilliance ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Lalo SchifrinMagnum Force – The Original Score ... CD
Aleph, 1973. Used ... $9.99
Pure 70s genius from Lalo Schifrin – and the lost soundtrack to the second Dirty Harry film! Magnum Force never received a proper soundtrack album at the time – and although we've waited over 30 years, this overstuffed package finally gives the Schifrin score it's due – serving up a great variety of short tunes that fully illustrated the musical genius that made the Dirty Harry films so great. The set's got a total of 22 tracks in all – and goes way beyond the Dirty Harry Anthology sets to include some of the darker, moodier numbers from Magnum Force – some great shorter tunes that sit nicely next to the more famous funky themes! Titles include "Warm Enough", "Last Dance In Sausalito", "Early Is Late", "Briggs", "Magnum Force", "Stakeout", "Execution Squad", "The Bullet", "Potrero Hill", "The Faceless Assassin", "The Crooks", and "Harry's Ostinato".

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! Titles include "The Shadow", "Sao Paolo After Dark", "Turn Every Stone", "The Edge Of Night", "The Girl Who Came In With The Tide", and "End Game". CD

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinMedical Center – And Other Great Themes ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A pretty darn rare album by Lalo Schifrin – and a key chapter in his work of the early 70s! The record takes some newer tracks by Schifrin, like the funky "Theme From Medical Center" and the groovy bossa "Venice After Dark" – and mixes them with other obscure soundtrack tunes that appeared on earlier albums, like "Kelly's Heroes", "Cincinnti Kid", "Once A Thief", "Bikini Waltz", and "All For The Love Of Sunshine". The result is a great batch of cuts that's one of our favorite albums by Schifrin. It shows all his best sides – funky, breezy, jazzy, and a bit of dramatic – and it's stronger all the way through than some of the individual soundtracks on MGM. LP, Vinyl record album

Paramount, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
A real stunner from Lalo – filled with tight jazzy soundtrack grooves, most of which sound even better than the work on the original Mission Impossible soundtrack! The groove is very much in the pocket, and perfectly captures Schifrin's classic mix of bossa, jazz, and crime themes. Titles include "Self-Destruct", "Mission Blues", "More Mission", "Foul Play", and the sample classic "The Danube Incident". LP, Vinyl record album

The great Lalo Schifrin plays piano and leads a crack group of studio players through some larger orchestral material with a nice jazzy feel! The overall approach is similar to Lalo's classic 60s soundtrack work – with nice solos arching out over sweeping strings and orchestral passages, and all tracks written with a good deal of punch, plus lots of little Latiny influences. Easily one of his most perfectly conceived albums of the 60s – and pretty darn tough to find. Tracks are long and titles include "El Salon Mexico", "New Fantasy", "Sabre Dance", and "Prelude #2".

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!

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

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

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.

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

Philips, 1963. Used ... $5.99
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

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!

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

Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
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".

Norio MaedaRock Communication Yagi Bushi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Crown/Clinck (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
Wicked funk from Japanese keyboardist Norio Maeda – also a hell of an arranger, too – as you'll hear on this superb set from the start of the 70s! The record's one of those key albums that took a 60s groovy Japanese sound much further into the future – giving the whole thing a sharper edge, with heavier drums – and using trippy guitar, weird flute lines, and keyboards to give the whole thing a vibe that's almost more blacksploitation or kung fu soundtrack than most of what Maeda had done before! Tracks are all pretty lively, and work together as a sweet set of grooves – almost with a funky Lalo Schifrin sort of vibe – and all the notes and titles are in Japanese, or else we'd have even more information to convey.

Players include Steve Dadd on drums, John Faddis on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, Joe Farrell on reeds, and Jerome Richardson on saxes – and Gap plays piano, electric piano, and organ, in a floating groovy mode that recalls the best soundtrack moments from Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones. Titles include the famously sampled "Diana In The Autumn Wind", "Sing Along Junk", "Theme From The Burglars", "Pond With Swans", "Ardis", "Long Hair Soulful", and "Pina Colada". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & a sticker on the spine.)

Antonio (Chocolate) Diaz MenaEso es Latin Jazz . . . Man! ... LP
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Robert L PikeBullitt ... Book
Bloomsbury (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $4.99 12.99
The original book for the famous action film that starred Steve McQueen – originally titled Mute Witness, but presented here as part of a great film series from Bloomsbury Press! The book follows a breakneck 72 hours in the life of the main character – in a story set in New York, not in the San Francisco of the film – in which a state's witness gets murdered in a hotel room, leading the top cop in the lead on a wild chase that's almost as striking in print as it was on the screen! There's no jazzy score by Lalo Schifrin this time around – but maybe you can play the record while you read the book. 177 pages, softcover. Book

Morton StevensHawaii Five-O ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
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". Book 'em Danno! LP, Vinyl record album

Pat ThomasDesafinado ... LP
MGM, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A bossa-styled set from singer Pat Thomas – one that boasts some especially nice backings from the great Lalo Schifrin! Lalo's using a fair bit of strings on the set, but he also keeps things lean too – a bit in the mode of his own bossa work for Verve during the time, although with Pat's vocals in the lead this time around! Thomas has a strong undercurrent of soul in her work – a much deeper vocal approach than you might hear from a more familiar bossa singer of the period, which is one of the things that really sets this album apart. Schifrin really seems to get this quality of Pat's, and he brings in a good sense of timing in rhythms to present Thomas at her best. Titles include "Recardo Bossa Nova", "Carnival", "To Welcome The Day", "Could Be", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Once Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some flaking on the top right corner.)

Cal TjaderSeveral Shades Of Jade ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Unlike the mellower Breeze from the East LP (another Tjader "eastern" session), this one's got some very lively Latiny stuff – despite the orientalist theme of the LP. There's 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". In a cool Verve gatefold, with Japanese-y jade statues on the front. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a hole.)
