✨✧ VariousNorthwest Passage – Classic Western Scores From MGM Vol 2 – 1940 to 1974 (3CD set) ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1940/1953/1955/1961/1974. Used 3 CDs ... $28.99
A totally excellent collection of rare western soundtracks from MGM – vintage material that we've never seen on CD before, packaged together in a beautiful limited set! The style here is a bit more dramatic than the western scores you might know from the spaghetti generation – but there's also some great echoes of those modes too – kind of the early inklings of styles that were picked up later by Italian composers, but handled here mostly with fuller American orchestrations. The package really lives up to the usual Film Score standards – great sound and supporting materials, and lots of movie tracks that never would have been on any LP release. 3CDs – with material from Northwest Passage (1940) by Herbert Stothart, Many Rivers To Cross (1955) by Cyril J Mockridge, Thunder Of Drums (1961) by Harry Sukman, and The Godchild (1974) by David Shire. Also features the song "Yellow Stripes" from Escape From Fort Brave (1953). CD

Jerry Goldsmith/Dave GrusinLast Run/Crosscurrent/Scorpio Letters ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1967/1971. Used ... $18.99
A trio of very groovy soundtracks – all brought together on one CD! First up is The Last Run, scored by Jerry Goldsmith with some strong action themes that are very much in a Lalo Schifrin mode – mixing guitar, electric harpsichord, and strings with a harder-edged groove so that there's a lot of space in the overall blend of elements – allowing each one to step out nicely, identified on its own! Even the mellower tracks are great – with an airy feel that recalls some of Michel Legrand's best action scores at the end of the 60s – with colors that flow out and really give the record a sense of soul! Steve Lawrence sings "The Last Run" in a mode that recalls Matt Munro's performances on other thriller soundtracks – and other titles include "Claudie's Stockings", "The Trap", "Border Crossing", "Rickard Escapes", and "Double Cross". Next is another great one from Goldsmith – the music to Crosscurrent (also known as The Cable Car Murder), penned here with bold themes that step off with a lot of action and chase-styled modes – often using a bold piano line out front of some very snapping funky drums! Titles include "Main Title", "The Killer", "End Title", and variations on "Moose Chase". Last up is Dave Grusin's score for The Scorpio Letters – his first soundtrack ever for a feature film, even if it was one that only aired on TV in the US! Grusin's style here is less funky than in later years, but still plenty darn great – often done in a blend of woodwinds and strings that cascade along gently, but often with some sort of undercurrent of rhythm. The music ebbs and flows along nicely – with a few more sentimental themes, but mostly a strong televisual pulse that echoes some of Dave's earlier music for the UNCLE TV show. Titles include "Max The Knife", "Miss Gunther", "Phoebe's Theme", "After You", "No Pass", "Bianeri", "Last Chase", and "Wrap Up/End Title". CD

Stephen Sondheim/Ken ThorneFunny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (Deluxe edition) ... CD
MGM/Ryko, 1966. Used ... $2.99
A great early moment for composer Stephen Sondheim – but a score that's made even groovier here by the film work of Ken Thorne! Thorne brings out a sprightly quality to the music that's maybe missing from the original stage score – and his few instrumental passages are especially great, with some exotic instrumentation on reeds, light strings, and percussion – in a way that's almost a parody of some of the Italian gladiator and heroic scores of the time! Titles include "Roman Embassy", "Lovely", "Tintinabula's Dance", "Lovely", "Riot At The Funeral", "Erroneous Return/Orgy Music", and "The Dirge". CD

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse, 1969. Used ... $22.99
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

✨✧ Pepper Adams & Jimmy KnepperPepper-Knepper Quintet (with bonus tracks) ... CD
American Jazz Classics (Spain), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a session from both players – and one of the long-lost sides on the short-lived Metrojazz label from MGM! Adams and Knepper head up a soulful group that features Wynton Kelly on piano (and a bit of organ!), Doug Watkins on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The real charm, though, is from Adams' solos, which are in that perfect gutbuckety mode that he could hit when he wanted to – a deep, dark drink the best tone the bari could offer, never getting clumsy at all, thanks to some lively rhythm playing. It's another one of those amazing sets recorded on a single date in NYC! Titles include "Minor Catastrophe", "Riverside Drive", All Too Soon", "Beaubien, "Primrose Path", and "Adams In The Apple".
