Elizabeth LundaySecret Lives Of Great Composers ... Book
Quirk, 2009. New Copy ... $4.99 16.95
A much better book than you might guess from the cover – or at least, a much more thoughtful book – as the unusual project really gets at the lives of famous composers – the personal stories behind the music, which are often far more vivid than their musical legacies! Each chapter focuses on a specific composer, and runs down biographical and personal details – with a focus on their music and overall career, but written in a very down to earth way that's surprisingly illuminating at times. The book includes more inside illustrations like those on the cover – and covers composers who include Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Phillip Glass, Charles Ives, Schoenberg, Puccini, Mahler, Brahms, Bernstein, Cage, and many others. 286 pages, softcover, with color images.

MansurianQuasi Parlando – Kopatchinskaja/Lechner/Thompson/Amsterdam Sinfonietta ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2014. Used ... $9.99
Sublime orchestral work from Tigran Mansurian – all pieces for a larger ensemble, but often carried off with a strong focus on the lead solo instrument as well, with an intimacy that almost creates the feel of a chamber piece instead. Patricia Kopatchinskaja plays violin, and Anja Lechner plays cello – and each piece features either soloist, or both – with support from the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and lead violinist Candida Thompson. Textures are wonderful throughout – layers of sound through strings, often at a level that has the individual standing just slightly out front in the lead, but frequently fluttering back to the group. Works include "Romance", "Quasi Parlando", "Double Concerto", and "Concerto No 2 – Four Serious Songs". CD

John MayallBack To The Roots ... LP
Polydor, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
John Mayall's definitely getting back to his roots here – and he's also getting help from an all-star cast as well! Mayall's vocals and piano are in fine form – almost with a rough-edged Blues Breakers sort of vibe, but sometimes a bit funkier too – in ways that strongly show the evolution of the older Brit blues groove into some hipper, more soul-drenched territory. Players on the record are a range of familiar names – including Eric Clapton on guitar, Johnny Amond on sax and flute, Harvey Mandel on guitar, Sugarcane Harris on violin, and Keef Hartley on some especially nice drums. Titles include "Prisons On The Road", "Groupie Girl", "My Children", "Home Again", "Blue Fox", "Boogie Albert", "Unanswered Questions", "Goodbye December", "Force Of Nature", and "Dream With Me". CD also features bonus tracks too – including "Accidental Suicide (1988 rmx)", "Force Of Nature (1988 rmx)", "Boogie Albert (1988 rmx)", "Television Eye (1988 rmx)", "Looking At Tomorrow (1988 rmx)", "Mr Censor Man (1988 rmx)", and "Home Again (1988 rmx)".

Harry MillerDifferent Times, Different Places ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from the late Harry Miller – material never issued during the course of his too-short life, but a great illustration of his really unique contribution to British jazz at the time! Miller's work on bass is wonderful throughout – very rich in feeling, and with a grounded organic quality that brings some especially spiritual sounds out of the players on the album's two different sessions – the first a 1973 date with Louis Moholo on drums, Chris McGregor on piano, Nick Evans on trombone, and Mike Osborne on alto sax. The style of the set is very much in the best post-South Africa spirit of McGregor's work of the time – rolling lines that Miller contributes to strongly, spinning out with a rhythmic pulse on long tracks with lots of open space for solos. Titles from this date include "Touch Hungry", "Quandry", and "Bloomfield". The second set of material is equally nice – a 1976 live date with Moholo on drums and Osborne on alto, plus Keith Tippett on piano, Mark Charig on trumpet, and Malcolm Griffiths on trombone. The long-flowing lines of the music are strongly in place again, but the performance also has some freer elements from the horns at various points – but always comes back to the energy of the core. Titles include "Eli's Song", "Mofolo", "Something Like This", and another version of "Touch Hungry". CD

✨✧ Garnet MimmsSensational New Star ... LP
Guest Star, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Although the Guest Star label put out a lot of dodgy work by big stars, this Garnet Mimms album is actually filled with great early recordings by him and the Enchanters. Tracks include "Where I Want to Be", "Tell Him", "You Don't Send Me Anywhere", and "I Love You". There's also 2 tracks by "P.Davis", to fill out the album. LP, Vinyl record album

Mississippi HeatWarning Shot ... CD
Delmark, 2014. Used ... $6.99
Mississippi Heat, but in a very strong Chicago blues mode – one that's fleshed out with a lineup that also includes tenor, organ, and backing vocals too! The group's led by harmonica player Pierre Lacocque, but features strong lead vocals from Inetta Visor – who's got that older southern soul blend of R&B and blues – a bit like older work on the Malaco label, but even more rootsy here – and produced in a less-commercial mode with the nice Delmark touch. The guitar work is great too – with a few searing leads in just the right places – and the album's got a whopping 15 tracks in all with titles that include "Come To Mama", "Sweet Poison", "Warning Shot", "Swingy Dingy Man", "Evaporated Blues", "Recession Blues", "A Part Of Something Special", "What Cha Say", and "Working Man".

Modern Jazz QuartetDjango ... LP
Prestige, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A stone classic from the Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded back when the group still featured Kenny Clarke in its membership, but already with some of the more serious, somber tones that would mark the combo's more famous years! Tracks here are from a variety of sessions in 1953, 1954, and 1955 – and trace an evolution of the MJQ style from initial more composed renditions of bop and modern jazz, to some of the more ambitious colors and tones of the Lewis-penned songbook. Titles include longish readings of "Django" and "La Ronde Suite", plus "Milano", "But Not For Me", "The Queen's Fancy", and "Delaunay's Dilemma". LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Society/John LewisModern Jazz Society Presents A Concert Of Contemporary Music ... LP
Norgran, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A mixture of Verve regulars and early third streamers join together in this one-off session designed as a focus on the writing talents of John Lewis. Most of the material takes off from Lewis' work with the MJQ, and the band includes two of his bandmates from that group, Connie Kay & Percy Heath – as well as soloists Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Aaron Sachs, and Lucky Thompson. Titles include "Little David's Fugue", "Sun Dance", "Django", and "Midsommer". In a great David Stone Martin cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing with a deep groove. Cover has some wear, some splitting and tape on the top and bottom seams, a peeled mark from sticker removal, and some stains.)

MojoIssue 258 – May 2015 (with bonus CD) ... Magazine
Mojo, 2015. New Copy ... $10.49 10.50
This issue's got a great cover shot of Brian Wilson – from that legendary 70s moment when he was taken surfing for the first time ever! The image is fitting, given that the issue contains a long special on Wilson's lost years, and his road to recovery – alongside other big articles on Sandy Denny, Mark Knopfler, and Blur – plus Jerry Dammers and Giorgio Moroder as well! As usual, there's more reviews in here than you could hope to shake a stick at – page after page of great advice on what to buy, including plenty of titles you'll find here in the racks at Dusty Groove. Also comes with a bonus CD, filled with 15 tracks of "everyday British angst"! Magazine

Van MorrisonMoondance (4CD deluxe edition w/blu-ray) ... CD
Warner, 1969. Used 4CD & Blu-ray ... $38.99
Maybe the greatest album ever from Van Morrison – and a set that broke into a whole new side of his talents! Van's producing himself on the record – not really in the conventional role as a producer, but in a way that has him really writing most of the album as he goes along in the studio – using core ideas for tunes, and fleshing them out in a relatively spontaneous way with the musicians involved – at a level that also shows some of the most jazzy elements of Morrison's music to date! That approach is heard to key effect in the sublime title cut "Moondance" – but it also echoes over the course of the whole album's stellar set list – tracks that include "Caravan", "Into The Mystic", "Come Running", "Glad Tidings", and "And It Stoned Me". Amazing package, too! The set features 4CDs' worth of music – the full album, plus 50 unreleased tracks that include studio outtakes, alternates, and even the previously unissued song "I Shall Sing" – all in a very hip book-style cover with lots of notes! Also features a blu-ray DVD with high-end audio of the album too! CD

Sam MostEast Coast Jazz 9 – I'm Nuts About The Most – Sam That Is ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99
Sweet flute work from the great Sam Most – a player who really shone brightly during his 50s recordings for Bethlehem Records – of which this is one of the best! Sam's got a mean, lean quality to his solos – a mode that rivals that of Frank Wess on the instrument at the time, and may well beat Herbie Mann – able to step lively on more boppish numbers, but step back into these soulful lines at just the right moments. The rest of the group has a tight feel too – modern, but a bit playful too – with Marty Flax on baritone, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Billy Triglia on piano, and Oscar Pettiford on bass. Titles include "Deed I Do", "Broadway", "Smiles", "Don't Worry Bout Me", "How Deep Is The Ocean", and "Tea For Two". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Smiles".)

Alfred NewmanLove Is A Many Splendored Thing/Seven Year Itch ... CD
Kritzerland, 1955. New Copy ... $19.99
Two famous 50s soundtracks from Alfred Newman – each of them a different illustration of key aspects of his style! Love Is A Many Splendored Thing is filled with the sort of lush strings and rich emotion that Newman could do so well – heard to great effect on the album's famous main theme, but then changed up nicely with some surprising exotic touches that echo the Hong Kong setting of the film – little bits of percussion and woodwinds that trade back and forth nicely between some of the more anglo-oriented dramatic moments. The set's a great example of Hollywood scoring at its best during the 50s – and titles include "Third Uncle", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "The Moon Festival", "Destiny", "Viendras Tu Ce Soir", and "Mark's Letter". The Seven Year Itch is lush, but in a sensuous way – mixing the comedy of the narrative with scenes that showcase the sexiness of Marilyn Monroe! Strings are pretty full on most numbers, but occasionally inflected with more playful bits – and titles include "Main Title/Indian Music", "Finale", "All About Love", and "The Girl Upstairs". CD
(Limited to 1000 copies.)
