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 ... $24.99
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

✨✧ Kenny BurrellGuitar Forms ... CD
Verve/MGM, 1965. Used ... $4.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints these washes of sound, color, and tone with the help of hip players like Johnny Coles, Louis Mucci, Julius Watkins, Steve Lacy, Richie Kamuca, Elvin Jones, and Lee Konitz. Tracks include "Lotus Land", "Downstairs", "Moon & Sand", "Terrace Theme", "Greensleeves", and "Loie". CD

Jerry Goldsmith/Dave GrusinLast Run/Crosscurrent/Scorpio Letters ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1967/1971. Used ... $11.99
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

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse, 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

✨✧ Spyder TurnerIs It Love You're After – The Whitfield Records Years 1978 to 1980 (Music Web/Only Love) ... CD
Whitfield/Big Break (UK), 1978/1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The overlooked second chapter of Spyder Turner's career – two albums back to back on a single CD! First up is the Music Web album – a fantastic revival in sound for Spyder Turner – a Detroit singer who cut some material for MGM earlier in his career, but never at a level that fully took advantage of his range! This time around, he's back in action in the late 70s, and working with producer Norman Whitfield – who creates this rich, soaring sound for some of Turner's tracks – allowing the singer to move his deep soul style into even more sophisticated territory. Other tunes are warm mellow numbers that show a maturing mode, too – and Gene Page handled the arrangements with a nice sort of Cali 70s vibe. Titles include "Stop", "I've Changed", "Get Down", "I've Been Waiting", "Reincarnation", and "Is It Love You're After". On Only Love, Spyder Turner is again working with producer Norman Whitfield – whose moved on from his Detroit roots to Cali – and works with the sort of soaring sound that he brought to his other late 70s albums on his own label – such as work by Undisputed Truth or Rose Royce! As with both of those groups, Whitfield allows the arrangements to get big, but never in a way that interferes with the quality of the vocals – an approach that really seems to help Turner find the direction he might have otherwise been lacking. Gene Page helps on arrangements – which furthers the sound of the set – and titles include "God Bless The Lady On The Radio", "Only Love", "Let's Rock", "You Can Always Count On Me", "You're So Fine", and "Sunshine".
