Elmer BernsteinGreat Escape – Deluxe Edition ... CD
MGM/Varese, 1963. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources. The rest of the score's pretty great, too – and features some compelling orchestrations by Bernstein, who's working at his hardest here to top him work on the Bridge On The River Kwai. Some tracks reprise the theme, and others have more of a dramatic sound. Titles include "On The Road", "Cooler & Mole", "Blythe", "Discovery", "Premature Plans", and "The Chase". CD

Bill EvansFrom Left To Right (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve/MGM, 1970. Used ... $6.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Bill Evans – an amazing session of Fender Rhodes material that's quite different than most of his other work! The sound here is incredibly gentle – Bill barely hitting the keys of the Rhodes to send out spare, shimmering notes amidst larger arrangements from Michael Leonard – a talent we hardly know at all, but who fits Evans' piano with a great deal of sensitivity for the set. There's some wonderful tones and colors on each number here – and Eddie Gomez also helps to flesh out the sound a little bit with his basswork, providing those slow pulses of low tones that have a very subtle approach to rhythm. Titles include an amazing version of Luiz Eca's classic "The Dolphin" – plus "Soiree", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?", "Children's Play Song", "I'm All Smiles", and "Lullaby For Helene". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – alternate takes on titles in the album. CD

Dominic FrontiereHang Em High/The Aviator ... CD
MGM/La La Land, 1968/1970/1985. Used ... $14.99
A Dominic Frontiere spectacular – two full soundtracks, and some bonus bits as well! First up is Hang Em High – one of the more famous western soundtracks of the late 60s – a set with a great theme that's well known by many – blended here with some other great spaghetti western elements and a bit more Hollywood drama! The "Hang Em High" theme has some nice twangy guitar touches backed with horns – and it's featured a few times on the album – and other tracks have a sparer, starker sort of dramatic feel, with strings emphasizing the mood in sweeps and swelling passages that are mighty nice. Titles include "Rachel", "Tumbleweed Wagon", "Bordello", and "They Took Me". The Aviator is a mid 80s film that's scored by Frontiere in a mix of modes – some lofty orchestral pieces that are positively airborne in their sound and structure, with a great sense of American pride and drama – and a few more period pieces to set the scene for the 1920s narrative. Titles include "Rabbit Hunt", "The Wolf Pack", "Saw The Fire", "Real Prize", "The Crash", and "The Forest". CD also features two bonus tracks from the film Barquero, too! CD

Jerry GoldsmithStuds Lonigan ... CD
MGM/Varese, 1960. Used ... $14.99
A great early score from soundtrack titan Jerry Goldsmith – his work for the 1960 film adapation of Studs Lonigan – a mix of string-laden sweep and more ominous, moody movements! An army of violinists kind of define the sound on one level, but there's some great piano solos by John Williams and uncommon touches here and there, like some banjo and some really adventurous percussion. Cool stuff! Includes "Main Title", "A New Year", "A Game Of Pool", "Out Of Work 1", "The Job", "The Sing", "No Hate", "The Depression", "Destitute Man" and more. CD

Henry ManciniPink Panther Strikes Again (expanded edition) ... CD
MGM/Quartet (Italy), 1976. Used ... $13.99
Mancini's fourth soundtrack for the Pink Panther series – done in the mid 70s, with a mixture of the styles he used for the older 60s films, with slight touches that resemble his groovier work on 70s cop and crime soundtracks. The main title for the film features snippets of the original theme, plus other soundtrack themes from the late 60s – and other tracks include "Come To Me", in both instrumental and vocal versions, the latter by Tom Jones – plus "Along Came Over", "Until You Love Me", "The Evil Theme", and "Exodus From The Castle". Plus, this CD version is expanded – with 6 bonus tracks and a great deluxe booklet! CD

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinPiano Strings & Bossa Nova (aka Insensatez) ... CD
MGM/Verve, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements – in a style that's incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that's at once spooky and lovely – a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album's light years away from other "piano with strings" albums of the time – proof that Schifrin was easily one of the most imaginative forces of his generation, and an arranger who really helped reshape music in the 60s. Titles include the incredible version of "Maria" that's played quite often by Gilles Peterson – plus loads of other nice ones, like "The Wave", "Insensatez", "You And Me", "Murmurio", "Rapaz De Bem", "Rio After Dark", and "Time For Love".

Johnny BristolBristol's Creme ... CD
Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1976. Used ... $18.99
An excellent smooth soul groover from Johnny Bristol! The album has Johnny stepping into a more sophisticated groove than he used on his early 70s albums for MGM – mixing together styles that sound a lot like those used by artists like Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware at the time, a mix of well-produced backings with just the right touch of strings, keyboards, and tight rhythms. Johnny's voice has a bit rootsier quality than you might be used to for this sort of album – which makes for an even more unique sound, especially on the mellower cuts. Tracks include "Do It To My Mind", "Have Yourself A Good Time Thinkin' Bout The Good Times", "You Turned Me On To Love", "I Sho Like Groovin' With Ya", and "She Came Into My Life". Nice one! CD

✨✧ Helen MerrillNearness Of You/You've Got A Date With The Blues ... CD
Lonehill, 1957/1958/1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Icy brilliance from a young Helen Merrill – The Nearness Of You – a record that's easily the Mercury equivalent of June Christy's classic work on Capitol or Chris Connor's classics for Bethlehem! Helen's working here with small combo backings on all tracks – carved out with players who include Bobby Jaspar, Bill Evans, Oscar Pettiford, and George Russell – all swinging gently alongside the vocals, but also taking care to shade things in with some of the darker, bluer colors that always worked best for Merrill – and which made her voice echo with a depth that few other singers could match! Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "I Remember You", "Summertime", "Let Me Love You", and "All Of You". You've Got A Date With The Blues – maybe our favorite album ever from Merrill – certainly from the early days – and a unique outing cut for MGM's excellent Metrojazz label! The set's got a more laidback sound than Merrill's previous records – and a definite bluesy undercurrent too – one that comes through strongly in the piano and arrangements of Jimmy Jones, and in the tremendous tenor work from Frank Wess – whose playing on the record gives the set a soulful quality we're not used to hearing with Helen! Tunes all follow the theme of the title – but are done in really inventive ways, especially when Wess gets a chance to solo – and titles include "Blues In My Heart", "The Blues", "The Thrill Is Gone", "You've Got A Date With The Blues", "The Meaning Of The Blues", and "Vous M'Ebloussez".

✨✧ Tom JonesSomethin Bout You Baby I Like/Memories Don't Leave Like People Do ... CD
Decca/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two mid 70s albums from Tom Jones – back to back on a single CD! Somethin Bout You Baby is a set that has Jones changing things up from previous albums – moving a bit back towards some of the country-inspired pop he was singing in the late 60s – with a bit more emphasis on ballads and laidback tracks, usually done with an undercurrent of sadness. Johnnie Spence is still on deck to arrange – and titles include "Rainin In My Heart", "You Make Me Smile", "Which Way Home", "Sing For The Good Times", and a sweet funky take on "Right Place Wrong Time", with some great keyboards in the mix! Memories Don't Leave is a great American date from Jones – one recorded after his move to the US in the mid 70s, with very hip backings arranged by HB Barnum and Wade Marcus! There's a subtle, soulful groove on many cuts – which is no surprise, given that Johnny Bristol penned about half the cuts on the record, usually with that same mix of funk and strings that he was using on his own great MGM albums of the time. In fact, the record almost feels like a Bristol date, but with Jones' vocals instead – and titles include the killer funk cut "Lusty Lady", plus "Us", "Son Of A Fisherman", "We Got Love", "The Pain Of Love", "I Got Your Number", and "City Life".

✨✧ Pepper Adams & Jimmy KnepperPepper-Knepper Quintet ... CD
Metrojazz/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1958. Used ... 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".

✨✧ Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse/Victor (Japan), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
