Richard Rodney Bennett/Roy BuddBillion Dollar Brain/Final Option ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1967/1982. Used ... $29.99
Two lost scores – packaged together on a single CD! First up is Billion Dollar Brain, composed by Richard Rodney Bennett – done for an obscure late 60s spy thriller starring Michael Caine, and a really dark soundtrack! Bennett did a fair bit of jazz arranging in his time – and the score to this one mixes some dark dramatic bits with some lighter motifs that feature good work on woodwinds and percussion. The main theme has some nice floating piano over the top, and a few other tracks have a cool whistling suspense theme – but things also really change up a lot nicely, and the whole thing almost has an audio collage feel at times, with its sense of variety. Titles include "Love Scene", "Hoe Down", "Anya", "The Church", "Skidoo", "Ambush", "Car Chase", and "Billion Dollar Brain". Roy Budd handles the score for Final Option – an early 80s spy thriller, but one that gets some beautiful Budd treatment that's right up there with Roy's famous soundtracks of the 70s! The instrumentation often has an airy, eerie feel – slowly cascading keyboards, with almost a hint of Italian space between – used with a lot less schlock than some of the tinnier, cheesier action scores that were more of the mainstream at the time. A few tunes were composed and conducted by Jerry & Marc Donahue – and titles include "Who Dares Wins", "Straight Ahead Blues", "Nature Of The Beast", "Reds Under The Beds", "Hi Jack (part 1)", "American Medley", and "SAS Or Nothing".

Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $29.99
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood ... CD
MGM/Water, Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Lee Hazlewood's world is always a very special one for us – filled with great songs, amazing production, and those icy vocals that Lee sang unlike anyone else! This album may be one of Hazlewood's greatest from the 60s – at least among his US recordings – and it's a near-perfect session with arrangements from Billy Strange, often with a slight bit of sinister guitar in the mix, but also some sublime strings too – used sparely and carefully to create a sense of deepening darkness! Lee's at his sharpest, wittiest here – singing some of his most sophisticated songs to date, but also throwing in a few nods towards his earlier pop productions. Titles include "Not The Lovin Kind", "For One Moment", "Sand", "Your Sweet Love", "My Autumn's Done Come", "I Move Around", "So Long Babe", "Bugles In The Afternoon", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", and Lee's wonderful parody remake of "These Boots Are Made For Walking".

Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

Oscar PetersonNight Train (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve/MGM/Polygram (Spain), 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set! The album's got a rock-solid sound that's filled with soul – almost a bit more down and dirty than some of Peterson's earlier work, very much in the spirit of the group's hit performance of the title track. In a way, the album's almost Oscar's answer to some of the rising younger stars in the soul jazz scene – and is proof that the master still can do things as great as the artists he inspired. Ray Brown is on bass and Ed Thigpen is on drums – and tracks include "Bag's Groove", "Georgia On My Mind", "Easy Does It", "Band Call", and "Night Train". CD

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinWrath Of God ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1972. Used ... $19.99
Robert Mitchum as a cigar-smoking priest who totes a machine gun – the cover here is almost enough to make us buy the album, but the music is even better! The soundtrack is a later MGM score by Lalo Schifrin – penned for a slightly comedic action film set in Central America, and done with a fair bit of Latin touches in the instrumentation. Elements of a variety of different Latin modes trickle through more standard soundtrack work from Lalo – jazzy at times, more serious at others – but almost always served up with groovy touches that make this one especially appealing to our ears. There's some nice snakey flutes that slide through some of the bigger backings – and sparer tracks are often heavy on percussion – making for a nice blend of moods that serves up a freshly sounding track with nearly every entry on the album! CD features 23 tracks in all – including 2 bonus tracks – and titles include "Chela/Tacho", "Wrath Of God", "Mascaras", "Plegaria", "Jurado", "Nacho", "Musicos", "Emmet", "La Iglesia", "Campanas", and "La Confesion".

MGM/Trunk (UK), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
IIncredible work from British modernist Kenny Graham! Side one of the record features Graham's Satellites group playing compositions by Moondog – the 50s NY performance artist who cut those strange, wonderful albums of spare tunes for Prestige. Graham and his group really preserve the exotic flavor of Moondog's compositions – but make things swing a bit, as they do even more on the flipside, which features Graham's own Suncat Suite. Titles include "One Four", "Utsu", "Four Four", "Chant", "Fog On the Hudson", "Sunrise", "Sunbeam", and "Sunday". CD

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1969. Used ... $18.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty Alexander joining the pair, bringing in some warmly soulful elements on piano – in ways that are a great bridge between his work for MGM and MPS! The set also features great tenor from Teddy Edwards – blowing with a deep tone and a sharp edge – and in addition to vibes by Jackson and bass by Brown, the group also features Dick Berk on drums. The set was recorded live at Shelly's Manne-Hole – and titles include Alexander's "That's The Way It Is", plus "Blues In The Basement", "Wheelin & Dealin", and "Tenderly". CD

Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... $39.99
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

✨✧ Charlie Shavers & Ray Bryant QuartetComplete Recordings Vol 3 (Like Charlie/Excitement Unlimited/At Le Crazy Horse Saloon) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1963/1964. Used ... $11.99
The 3rd and final chapter in Lonehill's exploration of the Charlie Shavers/Ray Bryant team – a pairing that's never gotten its full due until now, and which is featured in a great set of previously unreissued material! This set's got a bit less Bryant than the others – and only features 12 tracks with the Shavers/Bryant group – pulled from the 1960 album Like Charlie, a subtle gem that easily matches the strength of Shavers' other MGM work at the time. The remaining bulk of the CD features material from an unusual 1963 large group album called Excitement Unlimited – one that features Shavers working with an octet that includes Billy Byers, Jerome Richardson, Budd Johnson, and George Barnes. The tunes on these sides have a more tightly arranged approach – still with a strong focus on Shavers' fluid solo lines, but set up in a way that's a bit less relaxed than some of the Bryant albums in the series. The remaining 4 tracks on the CD complete the series' presentation of the Le Crazy Horse Paris recordings from 1964 – and the set features a total of 29 tracks that include "Carioca", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "Opus 5", "Night In Tunisia", "School Days", "Tenderly", "But Beautiful", "Jada", "Blues For Choo Loos", "In The Still Of The Night", and "Bossa Nova Petite".

Most folks only know Sheb Wooley from his novelty hits – or maybe his comedy work under the name of Ben Colder – but he could also be a hell of a country singer when he wanted, as you'll discover in this massive set! The box brings together almost all of the straight country sides that Sheb recorded – from postwar hillbilly, to top-shelf 50s sides with MGM on the west coast, to some surprisingly great 60s material that often comes across with Wooley's trademark wit! The box features a whopping 113 tracks in all, and the usual great Bear Family presentation – which means copious notes as well. CD

An overlooked chapter in the career of the great Rosemary Clooney – recordings done for a variety of labels in the 60s, all of which show Clooney both as a strongly maturing jazz singer, and as a vocalist who was willing to take on some new ideas too! The package is huge – 8CDs in all, with a fantastic hardcover booklet of notes and photos – and it features work recorded for MGM, Coral, RCA, Reprise, and Capitol Records – including sessions with Billy May and Nelson Riddle, and some surprisingly great duet material with Bing Crosby too. There's loads more we can't even begin to describe – and the whole thing is a treasure trove of material from one of the greatest jazz singers of midcentury! CD
