✨✧ Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon – Extended Edition ... CD
Warner/Aleph, 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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 features 18 tracks in all – including an alternate version of the main theme! CD

Lalo SchifrinGillespiana ... CD
Aleph, 1998. Used ... $1.99
A great tribute to Lalo's classic years with Dizzy Gillespie – performed by himself and the WDR Big Band, with players that include Jon Faddis, Paquito D'Rivera, Alex Acuna, and Markus Stockhausen. Faddis handles most of the trumpet parts, and with a style that's different enough from Diz to open the work up nicely – yet still hearken back to the sweet and Latinesque style of the early 60s Gillespie group that included Schifrin. Titles include "Blues", "Panamerica", "Africana", "Tocata", and "Bachianas Brasileiras No 5". CD

Lalo SchifrinGypsies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99
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 SchifrinNo One Home (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
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 SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dot/Universal (France), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
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 & Bob BrookmeyerSamba Para Dos ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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!

✨✧ Bob Brookmeyer/Lalo SchifrinTrombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinMan On A Swing/President's Analyst ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Universal (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky madness from one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time – the mighty Lalo Schifrin, one of the few guys who could fit bossa, jazz, electronics, and funk into one single tune – and make the whole thing come out like magic! If you only know Lalo from his more famous themes like Mission Impossible and Bullitt, you'll love the range of work included on the set – as the compilation goes past the obvious, to include rare bits from some of Lalo's late 60s instrumental albums, a number of rare singles, and a few great cuts from his overlooked albums of funky 70s electric jazz! The whole thing's put together with an incredible amount of care – hand-picking cuts that have an odd approach, interesting musical elements, weird production, and above all, a great funky groove! Plus, the set's got notes on all the music – giving you a track-by-track listing of where the music came from, why it matters, and more – all in a style that will have you running to dig through the crates for more of Lalo's rare gems! Tremendous throughout, and with tracks that include "Secret Code", "The Gentle Earthquake", "Machinations", "Agnus Dei", "Theme From Medical Center (7" version)", "Spill The Wine", "Ape Shuffle", "Escape From Tomorrow", "Theme From Jaws", "Most Wanted Theme", "Rollercoaster", and "Amityville Frenzy".

Verve, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

La La Land, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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.

MGM/Music Box (France), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure Lalo Schifrin soundtracks of the 70s – a really weird, spooky little record that's filled with moody touches! Schifrin's not in all-out action mode here – and instead experiments with a range of styles – including some warm, jazzy elements that are especially nice – mixed with larger passages that are more powerful, and blend together tense orchestrations with some of the exotic touches you might guess from the story! Some of the best selections feature scene shifting passages that really illuminate Lalo's ability to tell a story with sound – and titles include "Heavies Approach/Harbor Sequence", "Chinese Street Source", "Finzie's Piano #1", "Felicity", "Mongolian Stripper", "Harbor Chase/Crowds/Conclusion", "Taxi", "Winters Mansion/Winters/It's Time", and "Airports/Street Fight".

Bullet/Alan TewHanged Man – Original Television Soundtrack ... LP
Contour, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Nice funky 70s instrumentals, composed by Alan Tew, and performed by the group Bullet – a hip electric combo with a tight sound library feel. 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. The original's rare as hen's teeth, and the record is some of Tew's finest Brit easy work from the time. Titles include "Contract Man", "Killer HIll", "The Heist", "GBH", "Blue Panther", "The Spic", "Funky Bear", and "The Peterman". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Douglas (France), 1963. Used ... $4.99
Dizzy Gillespie caught live at Monterey – recorded with a great group during one of our favorite stretches in his career! The combo's kind of a post-Lalo Schifrin quintet, but still shares plenty of the bossa-inspired elements of his tenure with Diz – long tracks, bits of Latin rhythms, and a hip swing that's just right for the 60s! James Moody's in the group on alto, flute, and tenor, Kenny Barron plays piano, Chris White is on bass, and Rudy Collins is on drums – and Jon Hendricks joins the group on vocals for one cut too! Titles include "Morning Of The Carnival", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Vote Dizzy", "Desafinado", "No More Blues", and "The Cup Bearers". CD

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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".

Dizzy GillespieNew Wave ... LP
Philips, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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".

Dizzy GillespieSwing Low, Sweet Cadillac ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
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"!

Michel MagneSerie OSS 117 ... CD
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Groovy 60s spy soundtrack work – with a mod French twist! The CD documents a series of excellent scores by French composer Michel Magne – written for a run of mid 60s films based around the character of OSS 117 – a James Bond-like secret agent known to the French public through a series of 242 successful novels! The scope of OSS 117's adventures was large – as globe-spanning as that of James Bond, a fact that gave Magne plenty of room to throw in cool exotic, groovy, and jazzy elements to the soundtracks – in a style that was ultimately a heck of a lot more lively than that of John Barry, and which easily matches the best 60s soundtrack work of Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith, or Hugo Montenegro! We'd honestly never heard any of these tracks before – but our love of Magne led us to the set, and we were certainly rewarded – as the 23 track package is overflowing with incredibly groovy tunes, and has the feel of some of the best Crippled Dick collections from years past! The four films on the set include OSS 117 Se Dechaine, Banco A Bangkok Pour OSS 117, Furia A Bahia Pour OSS 117, and Atout Coeur A Tokyo Pour OSS 117 – and titles include "OSS 117 Hully Gully", "Banco A Bangkok", "Poursuite Thailandaise", "Hubert Rit Jaune", "Samba Furiosa", and "Slow Du Soleil Levant" – as well as a bonus remix track by Roudoudou!

✨✧ Johnny PateOutrageous ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $59.99
Funky magic from maestro Johnny Pate – a record that's very much in the same spirit as his blacksploitation soundtracks for Shaft In Africa or Brother On The Run! The style here is quite similar – full orchestrations, scored by Johnny with an all-soul feel – and played by a crack lineup of jazz and soul instrumentalists – including Richard Tee on organ, Bernard Purdie on drums, Montego Joe on congas, Jerome Richardson on flute, and Cornell Dupree and Joe Beck on guitars! The guitars really rip back and forth nicely in the set – searing one minute, choppy the next – and sometimes as much a part of the rhythms as the bass, drums, and percussion! Pate also draws a bit on his earlier years in jazz – using Richardson's flute to bring some Lalo Schifrin-like sensitivity to some tracks, and some Roland Kirk-like soul to a few others – working in a depth of sound that's way more than just straight jazz or instrumental soul. All titles are originals by Johnny, who also arranged and produced the set – and tracks include "No Hangups", "Sangria", "Bound To Happen", "That Ain't Too Cool", "Totally Unexpected", "You're Starting Too Fast", "Frustrating Disappointment", and "Constant Wind".

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".

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".

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.

VariousJazz Club – Sampled – The Original Jazz Classics, Rare Grooves & Breaks ... 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! Most tracks here should be quite familiar from recent uses of their key elements, but they sparkle even more brightly here in their original versions – as really stand out soul, jazz, and soundtrack tunes from the 60s and 70s! The package features full notes on all tracks, and also lists a key sampling of each number – and as usual for Jazzclub, you get plenty of greatness here for a very low price.

✨✧ VariousSpectrum – Thrilling 60's Film Noir Themes ... LP
Plastic (Italy), 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
The folks at Plastic dig a little deeper than usual for this one, and they turn up a nice batch of cuts – some obscure, some better-known – to define the genre of 60's Noir. The 16 tracks on the compilation are a mix of crime/spy type tracks, moody jazz vocal tracks, and dark moody orchestral themes. Although some of the stuff is a bit funky, the mood is much different than the usual funk compilation, and has more of an overall spooky feel. Tracks include "Out Of This World" by Mark Murphy, "Crossfire" by The Hurricanes, "Ennloro" by Percy Faith, "Jesus Christ Superstar" by Armando Sciascia, "Goldfinger" by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, "Love For Sale" by Eartha Kitt, "Harlem Love Theme" by JJ Johnson, and more by Lalo Schifrin, Cal Tjader, Oscar Brown, and others!

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of ParisDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ VariousBossa Nova – Exciting Jazz-Samba Rhythms Vol 6 – Film Bossa ... CD
Rare Groove (Italy), 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent idea for a bossa nova compilation – one that pulls tunes from groovy soundtracks of the 60s! The work on the set is of both American and European origin – and focuses on the kinds of tunes that often showed up in some of the best soundtrack work by our favorite 60s composers – light, jazzy numbers that were clearly inspired by the bossa, but which also felt free to expand a lot on the style – using interesting instrumentation, rhythm changes, and even a bit of vocals to highlight the tune in really great ways. Some tracks are straight off of soundtrack albums, and others are soundtrack tunes, lifted from jazz albums – but altogether, they make for a wonderful collection of work – with titles that include "Silvia" by Lalo Schifrin, "Mutiny On The Bounty" by Bob Brookmeyer, "The Bobo" by Francis Lai, "Bossa Nova In The Restaurant" by Ken Thorne, "Bossa Des Teurs" by Vladimir Cosma, "I Like The Look" by Henry Mancini, "Mr Lucky" by Jack Wilson, "Deiter's First Mistake" by Quincy Jones, "Naked City" by Laurindo Almeida, and Dax Rides" by Antonio Carlos Jobim.

VariousDiggers Delight – More Rare Groove Gems ... CD
Backbeats (UK), 1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A diggers delight through and through – even though the set will save you plenty of digging! The package is a killer collection of rare funky nuggets and sample tracks – put together with an ear for some of the best bits that have provided the building blocks for the hipper side of the spectrum in recent years – and with an eye for cuts that haven't been compiled that often! Many of the names here are big ones from 70s soul and funk, but they're represented by harder cuts that move past their hits – a great array of grooves that includes "Walk With Me" by Manchild, "Family" by Hubert Laws, "People Make The World Go Round" by Angela Bofill, "Mighty Mighty" by Earth Wind & Fire, "It's Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Funky Monkey" by Mandrill, "Elevate Our Minds" by Linda Williams, "Crab Apple" by Idris Muhammad, "Theme From King Kong" by Lalo Schifrin, "We Get Down" by Weldon Irvine, "Trogladyte" by Jimmy Castor, "Sneaking Up Behind You" by The Brecker Brothers, and "Turn Off The Lights" by Larry Williams.

Partners In Crime (Italy), 2000. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The grooviness continues! This set's a wonderful mix of obscure soundtrack grooves – plus a few other choice Latin bits – with an out-of-this world groove that's totaly excellent!

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ Stan GetzReflections ... CD
Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
