David ShireFarewell My Lovely ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Farewell My Lovely is a great late Robert Mitchum film – kind of a 70s noir, featuring Mitchum as Philip Marlowe – and the music is kind of a reworking of an older style of dramatic crime soundtrack styles, with the additional of some more off-beat and edgey passages that create a more sinister feel. The score's actually got some nice jazz work by players that include Dick Nash, Don Menza, and Artie Kane – and features 12 titles that include "Mrs Grayle's Theme", "Amthor's Place", "Marlowe's Trip", "Three Mile Limited", and "Moose Finds His Velma".

Toshiko Akiyoshi QuartetLong Yellow Road ... LP
Express (Japan), 1970. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great small group session from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – not to be confused with her big band album of the same title! This one's a live date – still with Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, but with long open tracks that are driven by great work from Bob Daugherty on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – a side-long take of "Long Yellow Road", plus "Opus No Zero" and "Sweet & Lovely".

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... LP
Numero, Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". LP, Vinyl record album

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole".

Richard BeirachHubris ... LP
ECM, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
No hubris here – as the album's one of the most deeply personal records we've ever heard from pianist Richie Beirach – a set of solo piano work that easily ranks right up there with ECM classics in the format by Keith Jarrett or Chick Corea! Like both of those artists, Beirach's clearly got the ability to be free, but always manages to instead come back to these warmer passages that are full of gentle colors and these really lovely lyrical passages – all played with an open hand, and a sharply modern ear – but one that never seeks to overstate itself either. A real gem – with titles that include "Future Memory", "Hubris", "The Pearl", "Rectilinear", "Sunday Song", and "Osiris". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul BleyOpen, To Love ... LP
ECM, 1973. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Beautiful solo piano work from Paul Bley – spare, stark, and almost lovely – and a real contrast to some of his more aggressive experiments of the late 60s. The Bley here has almost a hint of sadness and longing, especially on the numbers that have him revisiting tunes he'd done on earlier records with an approach that was a bit stronger. It's hard to define the gentle charm that he brings here to "Ida Lupino", "Closer", "Harlem", "Seven", "Open To Love", and "Nothing Ever Was Anyway" – but one listen to the record, and its gorgeous recording of Bley's piano, should be enough!

Brecker BrothersBack To Back ... LP
Arista, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
Soulful fusion from The Brecker Brothers – a set that's one of their standout efforts from the 70s – and a record that went onto influence a whole generation of jazz musicians too! The album features the twin horns of Randy & Michael Brecker, along with alto by David Sanborn, keyboards by Don Grolnick, and guitar by Steve Khan – but one of the things that really makes the album great is the vocal arrangements, which were handled by Luther Vandross, who also sings on the album along with Patti Austin! The set's got a great soulful feel – with some wonderful mellow groovers that have a sweet 70s sound – titles that include "Lovely Lady", "Night Flight", "Slick Stuff", "What A Miracle Can Do", "I Love Wastin Time With You", "Keep It Steady", "Grease Piece", and "Dig A Little Deeper".

Dave BrubeckAngel Eyes ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and this subtle sense of emotion is a perfect foil for the understated talents of Paul Desmond's alto work on the set. Brubeck himself is nice too – less trick-oriented than usual, in a way that lets us focus on the colors of his tone – and drummer Joe Morello and bassist Eugene Wright are in top form, as usual. Titles include "Violets For Your Furs", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "Will You Still Be Mine", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A lovely little record from the man who helped Stan Getz find his bossa – and a set that's done with just a bit more backing than usual from Byrd for the time! The album makes nice use of additional percussion, vibes, cello, and a bit of flugelhorn to back up Byrd's work on acoustic guitar – never in a way that dominates too strongly, with just enough added sound to color in the grooves with a slightly deeper tone. Titles include "Presente De Natal", "Three Note Samba", "Limehouse Blues", "Cancao De Nimar Para Carol", "Chega De Saudade", and "Anna". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob CarpenterSilent Passage ... LP
Warner, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The rare solo album from Canadian singer-songwriter Bob Carpenter – a really lovely record that mixes Bob's gritty folk rock tunes with some sweeter studio touches! The album was recorded from the early to mid 70s, had a troubled release history and deserved better – but over the years it's really grown to legendary proportions, thanks to a huge amount of underground supporters around the world. Carpenter's music is an endearing mix of gruff lead vocals with honest emotion and no-nonsense acoustic guitars – and although some tunes have a slightly bigger sound, with keyboard, strings, and some slight backing vocals (including work from Emmylou Harris), the core energy of the record still comes strongly from Bob himself. Titles include "Miracle Man", "Silent Passage", "Old Friends", "First Sight", "Morning Train", "Gypsy Down", "Before My Time", and "Now And Then". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Cash & June CarterCarryin' On With Johnny Cash & June Carter ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Johnny's first album collaboration with his soon-to-be wife June Carter, and it's a nice one! Carryin' On has it's share of sweet, lovely moments shared by the two, but also has a lot more cool 60s oddball touches than one would expect. The couple cover Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and two Ray Charles tunes, "I Got A Woman" and "What I Say". All three sound pretty strange coming out of hard-nosed Johnny, and prove to be quite fun and endearing, and very indicative of the freedom he had at Columbia to do whatever the heck he wanted. Other tracks include "Shantytown", "Pack Up Your Sorrows", "Jackson", "What A Good Thing We Had", and "No, No, No". LP, Vinyl record album

Dire (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
A beautiful little record from reedman Eddie Daniels – and like some of his best work, a record that was cut overseas! The session has Eddie working with an Italian group that includes Sante Palumbo on piano and electric piano, Julius Farmer on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – all in a mellow, relaxed way that really lets Daniels stretch out on his solos – hitting notes with a bit more feeling and soul than we remember in some of his smoother sets over the years. Eddie plays both tenor and clarinet, and one track features guitar from Franco Cerri – and titles include "Giant Steps", "Isn't She Lovely", "They Say It's Wonderful", and "Demoiselle".

A hard slammer from the Clarke-Boland Big Band – recorded when the band was burning up the road in Europe, taking great players and audiences in one fell swoop, coming up with some of the strongest straight jazz of their generation! The album features stunning solos all around by an all-star mix of American and European players that includes Benny Bailey, Johnny Griffin, Tony Coe, Dave Pike, Sahib Shihab, and Ronnie Scott – all coming together with incredibly fluidity, yet also breaking out for some massive solos on their own! Arrangements are by Boland – tight, right, and outta site – and titles include "Let's Face The Music & Dance", "High School Cadets", "By Strauss", "Gloria", "Sweet & Lovely", "Get Out Of Town", and "I'm All Smiles".

A spare and sweet little set from the team of Eddie Costa and Vinnie Burke – one of the best of the east coast chamber jazz groups of the mid 50s! The pair's trio has Eddie on piano and vibes, Vinnie on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – all working together to craft light, rhythmic versions of tunes that really change them up rhythmically – working in the most playful mode of the time to freely create over the top of familiar numbers that include "Fascinating Rhythm", "It Could Happen To You", "Sweet & Lovely", "Yesterdays", and "Let's Do It".

The lovely clarinet of Buddy DeFranco is backed by Oscar Peterson's quartet that included Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Louis Bellson. The tracks are open-ended, in that swinging Verve style used on the best mid 50s LPs – and while the Peterson group lacks the soul of some of DeFranco's recordings with Sonny Clark, they also provide a light touch the helps DeFranco take some chances on his solos. Titles include "Sweet & Lovely", "Love For Sale", and "Easy To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Diana DorsSwingin Dors ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the sexiest sets of vocal jazz to ever come from the British scene – a classic 1960 album by the lovely Diana Dors – easily one of England's best answers to American cheesecake singers of the 50s! As you'll notice by the cover, Diana's got a look that's right up there with Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield – but as a singer, she's far better – with a full range, and good sense of expression – often delivered in the manner of some of the best vocalists working in the US for RCA in the late 50s. The backings are great too – handled by the Wally Stott orchestra with a nice sense of jazz throughout – some really swinging horns that are quite unusual for a UK session like this at the time – and which really further the American feel of the set. Titles include "That's How It Is", "Namely You", "The Point Of No Return", "Roller Coaster Blues", "The Gentleman Is A Dope", "April Heart", "I'm In Love For The Very First Time", and "Tired Of Love".

France GallFrance Gall (1964) ... LP
Philips (France), 1964. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Early work by one of the grooviest singers in the French pop scene of the 60s – the lovely France Gall, working here with some very swinging arrangements from Alain Gouraguer! The grooves are wonderful throughout – sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a "yeh yeh" pop vein – but always upbeat, lively, and youthful! Gall's voice has a lightly dreamy quality that skips along nicely over the top of the rhythms – not really a little girl mode, given her sense of command on the lyrics – but as cutely flirtatious enough to match the sexy spirit of the record! Titles include "Jazz A Gogo", "Soyons Sages", "Pense A Moi", "La Cloche", "Ca Va Je T'Aime", "Ne Dis Pas Aux Copains", "Mes Premieres Vraies Vacances", and "N'Ecoute Pas Les Idoles".

Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". LP, Vinyl record album

A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles".

Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact – but they're given a more spacious approach in the arrangements – strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley – in a groove that's simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao – and tracks include classic versions of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz", and "Zazueira" that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever – plus "Historia De Amor", "Where There's A Heartache", "Brazilian Tapestry", and "Wanting Things".

Everest, 1952. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Dizzy and strings – a surprisingly great combination! Although it was Charlie Parker who first made famous the modernist "jazz with strings" approach, Dizzy does wonderfully here in the format – working in similar fashion with edgey backing from the "Operatic String Orchestra" in sessions recorded in Paris in the early 50s! The material was originally only issued as a number of separate 78rpm singles, but is brought together here with full notes and a few bonus tracks – making for a wonderful album that documents this really under-represented part of Dizzy's career. The solos are warm, but edgey – blown over the top of backings that shimmer with rich colors, but have a slightly modern bent. Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "Jalousie", "Sweet & Lovely", and "The Man I Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and a record not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", and "Dizzy Atmosphere". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of a handful of records cut by the lovely singer Byrdie Green for Prestige during the 60s! Byrdie's got a sweet soulful voice – not the greatest in the world technically, but very much in that classic small club mode of the 60s and 70s, as often heard singing with a hip small combo late into the nights. In this case, the hip combo's that of Johnny Hammond Smith – as Johnny arranged the whole set, and sort of acted as Byrdie's mentor at Prestige. Johnny's groovy organ group also features Virgil Jones on trumpet, Gene Walker on tenor, and Eddie Diehl on guitar – and they provide some very tasty backing for Byrdie on cuts like "Hurt", "Gin House Blues", "Goin Out Of My Head", "Somebody Groovy", and "In The Dark".

A compelling little set from Danny Guglielmi – a mix of weird instrumental numbers and some straighter vocal ones that feature singing by the lovely Dena! The album's somewhere between offbeat jazz and bachelor pad territory – and the album features early tape experiments that have Danny playing bass, guitar, piano, and violin – overdubbing each of them in ways that sometimes used odd effects to create some really weird sounds! The album's never totally over the top, but still pretty cool overall – and Dena's vocals are nicely light and sing-song. Titles include "Mosquito Festival", "Na Wa Da Ha", "Jealous", "AEIOU", "It's So Peaceful In The Country", "Hot Schottish", "Firelight Reverie", and "Bullfrog". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent concept for a bossa album from the 60s – a set that mixes together a bunch of different great guitarists – all with some light and lovely rhythm backings that really hit a groove! Jack Marshall put the set together – and in addition to his own guitar, the record features work from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, Tommy Tedesco, Laurindo Almeida, and Rosinha De Valenca – all of whom would be plenty great on their own, but who really sound special here together on the set! Backings have a bit of that bounce you'd hear on some of Howard Roberts' albums for Capitol at the same time – and no surprise, Roberts is really the main soloist on the date. Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Manha De Carnival", "Meditacao", "Here Lies Love", "Ho-Ba-La-La", "Bim-Bom", "Desafinado", "Corcovado", "One Note Samba", "These Are The Ways Of Love", and "O Barquinho".

The feel is almost to Hutcherson's earlier work what Woody Shaw's Columbia recordings were to his – tighter, with sharper production – yet still wonderfully soulful and with a strong sense of spirit. Key soloists include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Hubert Laws on flute – and the record also features George Cables on acoustic and electric piano, Cedar Walton on acoustic piano, and Eddie Marshall on drums.

Verve, 1967. Sealed ... $5.99
The beautiful first album from Janis Ian – recorded when she was just 15 years old, and a beautifully arranged around her lovely vocals! Janis Ian's self-titled album was something of a hit at the time, but is largely remembered for her fearlessly frank lyrics – from the gorgeous "Society's Child", which sounds like inventively arranged bubblegum pop, but the lyrics march righteously into a tale of teen interracial romance – to "Go 'Way Little Girl", in which she's unafraid to sing about sexuality, it's riveting stuff! Barbed pop on one hand, strident folk rock on another, it's pretty amazing stuff, arranged wonderfully by Shadow Morton with excellent NYC session players. Titles include "Society's Child (Baby, I've Been Thinking)", "Hair Of Spun Gold", "Then Tangles My Mind", "I'll Give You A Stone If You'll Throw It (Changing Tymes)", "Pro Girl", "Younger Generation Blues", "New Christ Cardiac Hero", "Lover Be Kindly", "Mrs. McKenzie" and "Janey's Blues".

This set features a number of tracks led by drummer Wessel Ilcken and featuring trumpet by Jerry Van Rooyen, better known for his later groovy soundtrack work. Many of the tracks feature vocals by the lovely Rita Reyes, and other players include tenor sax player Toon Van Vliet, trombonist Dick Bezemer, and pianist Rob Madona.

At her peak, which stretched from the mid 50s throughout the 60s, Ms. Jackson could melt you with any combination of sultry ballads, fiery rockabilly, or traditional country numbers, and Many Moods covers all those bases. She consistently takes on such disparate material as Harlan Howard's "I Wish I Was Your Friend", Merle Haggard's "I Started Loving You Again", and Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee", with each tune more charming than the last, and perhaps the most priceless of all, Neil Diamond's huge hit via the Monkees, "I'm A Believer".

A mellow mainstream fusion classic from the 70s – one that paired the gentle guitar of Earl Klugh with the sweet keyboards of Bob James – in a set that's filled with plenty of warm and laidback touches! The mode here takes off some of the darker edges from James' earlier sound, and softens it nicely with Klugh's colorful approach to the guitar – a slightly tropical mode at times, and one that dances breezily along with help from Ralph MacDonald, Ron Carter, Harvey Mason, and Gary King. Titles include the lovely "Mallorca", plus "I'll Never See You Smile Again", "Kari", "The Afterglow", "Love Lips", and "Winding River". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic piano work from the very groovy Horst Jankowski – an artist who's really stepping into his own with this sweet mid 60s album! The set still follows the balance of electric bass and hard piano sounds from Horst – but it also fleshes out the music in a really great way, by adding in these lovely larger backings from the Erwinh Lehn orchestra – every bit as full of color as on their classic album for MPS! The Lehn touch is a great one – and makes the whole thing really sound wonderful – with that balance of tonal complexity and straightforward groove that made some of the MPS/Saba productions so great. Titles include "Violets In March", "Elmer's Tune", "Black Forest Holiday", "Shadow of Your Smile", "Danke Danke", "Sir Scotch Whiskey", and "Let's Live a Little". LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonJJ's Broadway ... LP
Verve, 1963. Near Mint- ... $9.99
JJ's Broadway is a-ok with us – a hip mix of small group tunes, played with the great Walter Perkins on drums, and handled with a much more complicated approach than most other "jazz meets Broadway" type albums! About half the tracks feature a quartet with Perkins on drums, plus Hank Jones piano and Richard Davis on bass – and these numbers really swing with a wonderful open-ended groove. The rest of the set has a larger group with Jones, Perkins, and Chuck Israels on bass – plus additional trombones behind the solo work of Johnson. Titles include "Nobody's Heart", "A Second Chance", "Sleeping Bee", "Mira", "Lovely", and "Who Will Buy". LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & RossBest Of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross (aka The Hottest New Group In Jazz) ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an attempt to completely work the emerging vocalese style onto a full-blown jazz group. This album wasn't their first – but it was the first to really break them with the masses, and it's a vocal jazz classic if there ever was one. Backings are by the Ike Isaacs Trio, plus Harry Edison on trumpet – and titles include "Moanin", "Twisted", "Cloudburst", "Everybody's Boppin", and "Sermonette". 70s version of the group's first album for Columbia – Hottest New Group In Jazz – but works fine as a best of!

Elektra, 1981. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Definitely a very special album from the lovely Debra Laws – member of the famous Laws family of groovers, getting a chance to really shine here in the spotlight! The grooves have a great mix of jazzy fusion and soul – handled by brothers Ronnie and Hubert, but given a sharper, crisper vibe than either of their music – which works perfectly for Debra's blend of focus soul and more sophisticated jazz-styled moments. Some cuts have Laws tippling nice and high – ala Minnie Riperton – while others have her sliding right down in the rhythms in this really great way, and winning us all over again with her charms. Titles include the incredible title cut "Very Special" – a classic mellow groover that we'll never tire of – plus loads of other great tracks, like "Be Yourself", "Your Love", and "Long As We're Together".

A wonderful debut from The Main Ingredient – and a record that really shows the new style they'd bring to group soul music in the 70s! There's a righteous energy here right from the start – a mode that echoes some of the earlier New York groups of the late 60s, but which also focuses things with a new level of sophistication that really helps things soar – this sublime blend that really makes the most of the wonderful vocals of the trio! Arrangements are by Bert De Coteaux, who gives the group a tightness on their charts, yet still really lets them find their own way on vocals – kind of a freer style than some of the west coast soul groups that RCA had been working with. The whole album's great – sublime right from the start – and titles include "Can't Stand Your Love", "The Girl I Left Behind", "Brotherly Love", "Magic Shoes", and the lovely "Una Bella Melodia Braziliana".

A wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid, serious feel – mixed with lighter numbers that make for nice mood changers, both on record and in the film. An orchestra is used on most numbers, occasionally with some European touches, given the setting of the movie – and a chorus performs one version of the theme, alongside two other instrumental ones. Titles include "The Chaser", "Something Loose", "Congarocka", "Happy Barefoot Boy", "The Lovely Life", and "The Donk". LP, Vinyl record album

The record is subtle, but a wonderful example of Mancini's continuing instrumental genius.

Teena MarieWild & Peaceful ... LP
Motown, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the greatest female soul albums of the end of the 70s – and the bold-voiced debut of the lovely Teena Marie! Even on this first album, Teena's got a depth that goes way beyond most of her contemporaries – a brashness that hits hard on the funkier cuts on the record, but also a soft smoothness that picks up cues from Minnie Riperton, and helps take that sound well into the 80s on a gentle groove. Rick James is firmly in control of the overall picture here, but what's really amazing is that the album echoes with a soulfulness that goes way beyond James' own party funk records of the era – a mature sensibility that marks out a space for Lady T right from the outset, and which marks her as a force to be reckoned with in soul music, even at the tender young age of 23! The record features 2 of Teena's greatest tracks – "I'm A Sucker For Your Love" and "De Ja Vu" – plus the titles "Turnin Me On", "Don't Look Back", and "I'm Gonna Have My Cake".

There's an up-close, intimate vibe to some of these songs that's really amazing – a sense of happiness that Paul never seemed to have in the Beatles' later years – mixed with some other witty twists and turns that expose a side of his songwriting that would only blossom even more in years to come! McCartney handles all instruments and vocals – but Linda also joins in on harmonies – and it's that sense of harmony between the two of them that really guides the record's spirit.

The whole thing's incredibly charming, and even familiar tunes come across sounding quite different in McFarlands hands. Titles include "From Russia With Love", "More", "Emily", "La Vie En Rose", "The Love Goddess", and even a groovy take on "I Want To Hold Your Hand".

Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th GradeMiss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A pretty great record from one of the coolest school teachers you could ever hope to have – the lovely Miss Rita Abrams, a hippie who was teaching in Marin County at the start of the 70s! The set's a project done by Abrams with her fourth grade class – a set that mostly features original tunes penned by Rita, filled with joy, hope, and the sort of optimism that characterized the Marin County scene of the post-Haight years – and performed with a cool blend of acoustic instrumentation next to Abrams keyboards – with some larger arrangements from Ed Bogas, who'd later work on hip soundtracks for Fantasy Records, across the Bay. There's nothing hokey about the set at all – as the tunes are great, and the kid-quality of the vocals is really kept to a minimum – more used to underscore the warmth in Rita's lead, and surprisingly never cloying at all – a lot like some of the best singer/songwriter projects on Reprise at the time, especially given Rita's cool electric keyboards. Titles include the cool single "Mill Valley" – plus "Floating Away", "Wonder", "Building A Heaven On Earth", "Running In The Green Grass", "Sweet Summertime", and "I Never Asked".

Oscar's fluid touch on the keys is perfect throughout – taking lots of chances, but always strongly following the melody – and rhythm accompaniment is from the usual team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. Titles include "In The Still Of The Night", "Love For Sale", "It's All Right With Me", "Just One Of Those Things", "Night & Day", "It's De-Lovely", and "I Love Paris". LP, Vinyl record album

The first album from Shawn Phillips – featuring Phillips recording in London with members of Traffic backing him up – in a style that's a great extrapolation of folksy and bluesy roots with some of the hipper styles going down in England at the end of the 60s. Phillips does a great job of expanding his bag way past simple acoustic folk for the record – and manages to do so with a simple, personal quality that's quite different than most of his contemporaries – a sound that should have made him as big as labelmate Cat Stevens, but which has also held up a fair bit better over the years, thanks to Shawn's somewhat obscure status. Titles include "Not Quite Nonsense", "Screamer For Phlyses", "For JFK RFK & MLK", "Lovely Lady", "Withered Roses", "L Ballade", and "No Question". LP, Vinyl record album

The music changes to fit the modes of the songs – never totally funky, but with some nice 70s changes at times. The whole thing's a pretty darn groovy way to learn – and there's plenty of cool spoken bits that would be ripe for pulling out as samples!

The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that include Joe Henderson, George Duke, and Stanley Clarke – coming together with some great Brazilian percussion from husband Airto.

The album's a great chance to hear the creativity and soul of Rosolino's trombone at its best – and has a very different feel than most of his early work – which, while great, always had a tighter west coast approach. The group here is a Canadian one – no surprise, as the material was recorded in Toronto – and features great guitar from Ed Bickert, plus Don Thomson on bass, and Terry Clarke on drums.

On her earlier Capitol Records albums with Prima, Keely would occasionally get the chance to step out solo and do a more sophisticated song or two – yet here, working for Reprise, she's out in the spotlight, singing to incredible Nelson Riddle arrangements, and really knocking it out of the park! Smith has a vocal range that should have made her huge – certainly in the company of the bigger, more mature female singers of the 60s – and side one of the album features mellow tracks, with some more upbeat material on side two. Titles include "Once In A Lifetime", "Little Girl Blue", "I'll Never Be The Same", "Willow Weep For Me", "New Sun In The Skies", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", and "It's Good To Be Alive".

We've always loved vocalist Cecilia Stalin, no matter what the setting – but here, she might be in the best company ever – working with jazzy backings from Khari Cabral Simmons and other members of the Atlanta scene – on a record that's drenched in soul from the very first note! Stalin hails from London, was born in Sweden, and worked with Koop and other overseas acts – but she's also got this strongly soulful quality that's always made her a favorite with American listeners too – and here, working with Khari, she's almost returning the favor by giving a special sort of Atlanta spin to her music! The music's based on strong basslines from Simmons, and features lots of warm keyboards – and all the rhythms are live, with a spontaneous jazzy undercurrent that works perfect with Cecilia's lovely vocals. Our only complaint might be that we would have loved a full record from the duo – but the four songs here offer maybe more than most other full LPs. Titles include a great reworking of Jon Lucien's "Sunny Day", plus "He Loves You", "The Story Of Love", and "Norwegian Wood". LP, Vinyl record album

Heavenly soul from the lovely Sweet Inspirations!

Tom Dowd produced the record with a sweet southern-ish sound, and Arif Mardin provides some lofty string arrangements that take the girls' voices to the heavens! Includes some fine numbers written by Cissy Drinkhard Houston – like "I Could Leave You Alone", "You Really Didn't Mean It", and "Where Did It Go" – plus pop numbers like "Alfie", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", and "To Love Somebody", all completely transformed by the group's style!

Includes the wonderful tune "I Think I'll Just Go Out & Find Me A Flower", plus "The Music Turns Me On", "Young & Free", "Summer Sadness", "Oh What A Lovely Day", and "Foolin Around". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereophonic pressing, including the Decca inner sleeve.)

Bill Withers'Bout Love ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of Wither's most underrated sets, a nice effort from the latter part of his Columbia career. The set has the sort of modern soul polish throughout that separates these CBS sides from his earlier grittier work for Sussex, and though the sound has a little more commercial and mainstream appeal than some of the funkier folksier early albums, it's aged a lot better than we might have predicted upon its release. Overall the vibe is a lot like the excellent Menagerie album which immediately preceded this, with some nice jazzy touches, and even though it didn't produce a big hit like "Lovely Day", it does features some arrangements by Wade Marcus that contribute to the warm, polished production. Titles include "Love Is", "All Because Of You", "You Got The Stuff", "Don't It Make It Better", and "Look To Each Other For Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a bent corner.)

Stevie WonderSongs In The Key Of Life ... LP
Tamla, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A sweet little double LP – one that had some folks saying that Stevie should have stayed away from the "2LP syndrome", but for us a real treasure with lots of hidden gems. Besides the hits "Isn't She Lovely" and "Sir Duke", which were more than enough to carry the set in the record shops, the record's got lots of other nice cuts, including many that have that complicated jazzy feel of Stevie's work on the Inner Visions album. Titles include "Ngiculela – Esa Una Historia", "Ordinary Pain", "Black Man", "Village Ghetto Land", and "Love's In Need Of Love Today". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil WoodsWarm Woods (80s pressing) ... LP
Epic/Portrait, 1958. Sealed ... $9.99
One of the most wonderful Phil Woods albums ever! No kidding – this is amazing! Woods played on lots of other records – and often in settings that made you wonder why people thought he was so great – but on this one, he's totally in the spotlight, fronting a mellow easy quartet that lets him play some incredible solos that go places we couldn't even imagine! The whole album's a fantastic treat – deeply soulful and introspective in a way that you can hardly imagine from most of Woods' other work in the 50s – and done with a rare energy that's made it one of our favorite albums for years. Every track sparkles – and the album's filled great tracks like "Gunga Din", "Waltz For A Lovely Wife", "Squire's Parlor", "I Love You", and "In Your Own Sweet Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1967. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from The Bee Gees – a near-perfect bit of 60s pop, and a record that would set the scene for so many others to come! The vocals are what you've always known from the Bros Gibb, but the production is what really sends us – complicated, baroque, and filled with these completely compelling instrumental and studio twists that make the already-charming lyrics even more lovely! Titles include the classics "Holiday" and "Turn Of The Century" – plus "New York Mining Disaster 1941", "In My Own Time", "Red Chair Fade Away", "Close Another Door", and "To Love Somebody".

Mercury, 1986. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Upbeat UK pop soul from O'Chi Brown! This a perhaps one of the lesser-remembered sets from the Stock, Aitken, Waterman heyday of the mid 80s – easygoing and a bit poppy, but with lovely, genuinely soulful vocals by O'Chi! There's a fair bit of keyboards and vamped-up electro drums on the set, but there's also an overall brightness to the production that transcends such period studio sounds. Of course, most of the credit for how charming this album is goes to Ms. Brown – she brings the warmth, soul and heart to the material. Titles include "100% Pure Pain", "Lady", "Whenever You Need Somebody", "Two Hearts Beating", "Call Me Up", and "Learning To Live Without Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Vault, 1963. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the only albums recorded as a leader by drummer Larry Bunker – a wonderful percussionist who was a key part of the LA 60s scene on so many levels! This set has Larry working live with a quartet – Mike Wofford on piano, Bob West on bass, and Gary Burton on vibes – easily running through numbers that have a gentle glide, and a warmly chromatic finish. There's a really nice organic quality to the numbers – kind of bubbling forth with an easy-going approach that we really like, while still having a bit of an edge and urgency. Titles include "Waltz For A Lovely Wife", "Panther Pause", "Sweet Rain", "Israel", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George Coleman & Tete MontoliuMeditation ... LP
Timeless, 1977. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning setting for this wonderful tenorist – a record that has the great George Coleman blowing with only the piano of Tete Montoliu for accompaniment – with really wonderful results! George has all that full, deep tone we know from his bigger group recordings – and it really seems to set the record on fire from the start, and bring out these bold rhythmic lines from Montoliu, who plays with a blocky sense of power that reminds us of his sublime late 60s album for MPS! There's still plenty of the lyrical moments you'd expect from Tete, too – but even then, George comes in with these freewheeling passages that are really lovely – and which bloom brilliantly in the presence of the piano. Titles include long takes on "Meditation" and "Sophisticated Lady" – plus "Walsing At Rosa's Place", "Lisa", and "First Time Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gil EvansSvengali ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great example of the way that Gil Evans really opened up his groove in the 70s – moving here way way past the cool jazz and third stream of earlier years – into a soulful style that's far groovier than might be expected! Part of the strength of the set is because of the players – as Gil's working with a group of younger soul jazz and spiritual soloists that include Ted Dunbar, Billy Harper, and Hannibal Marvin Peterson – as well as the older soul modernist Richard Williams. But there's also some other specifically Evans-like touches to the record that stand out – like Gil's stark notes on acoustic piano and his lighter work on the electric keys – plus a bit of inventive synthesizer from David Horowitz, who makes a few tracks really crackle with energy. Tracks include "Zee Zee", "Blues In Orbit", "Cry Of Hunger", and "Thoroughbred" – the latter two of which are lovely compositions by Billy Harper! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lovely later recording from Stan Getz – very spare and spacious, and recorded with a casual approach that's quite striking, and really fresh! The album features Stan playing alongside pianist Albert Dailey – with no other rhythm accompaniment, just piano and tenor sax. The tunes are mostly familiar numbers, played in a relaxed, improvised mode that makes the whole thing feel like you're getting a lucky glimpse of Stan and Albert playing together in an after hours session or rehearsal. There's a bit of roughness in the recording, but given the depth of soul and color from both players, that quality also emerges as an honest humanity that only serves to make the recording more compelling! Titles include "Tune Up", "A Child Is Born", "Confirmation", "Round Midnight", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most". LP, Vinyl record album

An incredibly lovely record from Kraftwerk – fashioned along the same suite-like style as Radio Activity, and served up with some haunting and charming tunes throughout! The electronics are quite spare, yet very thoughtful – never a note out of place, as the quartet build their careful efforts together to create a tapestry of surprisingly warm sounds – using just a bit of vocals in really great ways, and almost prefacing a whole generation of UK and Euro pop to come – yet without any of their schmaltz! Titles include "Europe Endless", "Hall Of Mirrors", "Abzung", "Franz Schubert", and "Showroom Dummies" – not to mention the awesome title track and electro break number "Metal On Metal".

A great little album from Teena Marie – one that's dedicated to the late Minnie Riperton (who'd passed during the previous year), and which is produced by Riperton's husband/collaborator Richard Rudolph. Teena's got more than a few of Minnie's tricks up her sleeve on the best cuts, singing in a smooth sweet soulful style that makes for some of her best vocals on record at the time. Lovely, soulful work from Teena – one of her best! Titles include "Behind The Groove", "Aladdin's Lamp", "Now That I Have You", "Can It Be Love", "Too Many Colors", and "Young Girl In Love".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeOceano ... LP
RCA (Italy), 1971. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Morricone music for a seaside setting – a south sea film that's scored by the maestro with a whole host of really lovely sounds! The approach here is slightly different than other Morricone scores of the time – although still done with plenty of space, and a bit of darkness too – usually using light woodwinds, mostly flute, mixed with earthier percussion at times – almost in ways that remind us of those weird jazz-meets-nature experiments from the Aussie scene of the 70s – although with less jazz overall. The blend of modes is beautiful, and offers us another fresh view of Morricone's many talents – a new way to fall in love with his genius all over again! Titles include "Odissea", "Partenza", "Notte", "Piccola Ouverture", "Il Vento E Il Vento E Soffia Dove Vuole", "Isola Di Pasqua", and "Vulcano". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shirley ScottDedication Series Vol 3 – Great Live Sessions ... LP
Impulse/ABC, 1964/1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 70's issue that brings together the full set of material that was recorded live by Shirley at the Front Room, Newark, in 1964. The session's got Shirley's quartet with husband Stanley Turrentine on tenor, and the relaxed live material shows a side of the lovely organist that you didn't always get on her albums – especially the ones for Impulse, which tended to be a bit more pop, or a bit more arranged. Tracks are long, and at least half of this material was not issued until the album came out. With the cuts "Rapid Shave", "That's For Me", "Just In Time", "Shirley's Scuffle", and "Mean, Angry, & Lowdown". A great bit of smoking soul jazz lounge grooves. LP, Vinyl record album

A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note – and also one of their best! The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to arranging, playing in a way that manages to bring jazz funk mind, even at this early of a point – along with more meditative compositions with incredible lyrical beauty. The album includes tracks that mix both of these styles – and titles include the title track, "Baghdad Blues", "Melancholy Mood", "Sister Sadie", "Break City", "St. Vitus Dance", and the lovely "Peace".

Odeon (Brazil), 1969. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A late 60s gem from Doris Monteiro – done in a quirky post-bossa approach that's really great! The style here has that great blend of groovy, easy, bossa, and breezy that characterized the high years of the EMI/Odeon sound in Brazil – spearheaded by maestro Lyrio Panicalli, with a sound that uses full arrangements, but which somehow manages to make them glide with effortless ease – into a light, lovely, lyrical accompaniment that's perfect for Doris' voice! Titles include "Garoto Paissandu", "Lembrando O Dia", "Vai Ver", "Nem Num Talvez", and "Vou Te Contar" – all of which make for a great little set that goes wap past the usual batch of bossa standards!

✨✧ Mark Murphy/Clarke Boland Big BandMidnight Mood ... LP
MPS, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set from vocalist Mark Murphy – easily one of his greatest albums ever! The session was recorded for the MPS label in Germany during the late 60s – at a time when Murphy was recording some excellent work overseas – and the album features backings by a small combo peeled off of the legendary Clark-Boland Big Band, who were also working for MPS at the time! Murphy's vocals get some tremendous backing on the set from a combo that includes Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Sahib Shihab on baritone and flute, Derek Humble on alto, and Ronnie Scott on tenor – and the grooves are a mix of modal numbers and straight jazz tunes – almost always dancing together in a lovely way that unlocks a side of Murphy's talents that hadn't been recorded this way before. And in fact, the album's gone onto have a huge influence on the current sound of club jazz – and is a key inspiration for the work of Nicola Conte, Koop, Five Corners Quintet, and others! The vocals are perfect, too – with nary a hint of overindulgence, and always a sweet measured groove that works perfectly with the material – and titles include "My Ship", "I Don't Want Nothin", "Hopeless", "Sconsolato", "Why & How", and "Just Give Me Time".

✨✧ Steeleye SpanPlease To See The King ... LP
Big Tree, 1971. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
There's a slight shift here from the first album by Steeleye Span – a bit of a shift to just a touch of electric guitar and organ next to the bass guitar lines of Ashley Hutchings – which makes for an even more sinister sound than before! In keeping with their approach, most songs are from older British sources – but they really get transformed by the presentation, which creates an acid folk vibe that really sets the stage for the Wicker Man scene – including some of the strange folk experiments of Current 93 many years later! Most of the rest of the instrumentation is acoustic, used in a way that creates this time-tripping approach that's really amazing – on titles that include "Boys Of Bedlam", "Cold Haily Windy Night", "The Blacksmith", "Female Drummer", "The King", "Lovely On The Water", and "The Lark In The Morning".

Not really the soundtrack for the movie – but a sweet batch of tracks that feature the lovely Dionne Warwick singing the title tune – and stretching out on a host of other great 60s numbers too! The album was recorded in two different sessions, mostly with backings by Burt Bacharach – who always makes his own music sound great – with a bit of extra help from Pat Williams, Manny Albam, and Garry Sherman – who each get a tune to work with. Gone is the dreamy optimism of some of Dionne's earlier albums – and in its place is a more mature, slightly sadder style that's really great. Titles include "Valley Of The Dolls", "For The Rest Of My Life", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Silent Voices", "Let Me Be Lonely", "You're My World", "Where Would I Go", and "Walking Backwards Down The Road".

A classic testament to the genius of Stevie Wonder – a collection that brings together some of his most important work of the 70s, plus a few new tracks too – all graced with a back cover note that proudly states "written, arranged, and produced by Stevie Wonder"! That note is key to the strength of the set – as it documents Wonder's rise from child soul phenomenon to adult American composer – a voice that was one of the strongest of the 70s in finding a new sense of pride and power for the generation. The whole thing's great – as you'd expect – and even after all these years, the set stands as one of the best ways to jump into Stevie's work of the 70s. Titles include "Living For The City", "Superstition", "Front Line", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Superwoman", "I Wish", "Sir Duke", "Higher Ground", "Boogie On Reggae Woman", "Do I Do", "Ribbon In The Sky", "Master Blaster (Jammin)", and "Isn't She Lovely".

Although the tunes here are all quite familiar, they're also give some pretty unique treatment – often Brummel-ized with a mix of rootsier rock influences, and topped with tremendous lead vocals from Ron Elliott – easily one of the most distinct voices of his generation! Elliott's inflections and the group's instrumentation really turn these tunes into something new – and the album's a great illustration of the old adage that "it's not the song, but the singer!" Titles include "Bang Bang", "Play With Fire", "Woman", "Yesterday", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "Homeward Bound", "Mrs Brown You've Got A Lovely Daughter", and "Monday Monday".
