John WilliamsLong Goodbye (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1973. Used ... $24.99
A mad little soundtrack – for a mad little film! The Long Goodbye is one of the best-remembered Robert Altman films of the 70s – a wonderful contemporary remake of a Raymond Chandler/Phillip Marlowe classic – and in addition to some nice jazzy moments scored by John Williams, the score also features a stunning re-presentation of the main theme – a haunting number with vocals by Johnny Mercer! In the movie, Elliot Gould hears the song in many different versions – in a nightclub, on the radio, and in other settings that continue as the movie goes on – even a mariachi band at one point! The soundtrack CD features all these great versions – ten in all – with solo piano by Williams, a trio take by Dave Grusin, and vocals by Irene Kral, Clydie King, and Jack Sheldon too! The CD features all these takes on "The Long Goodbye" – plus more tracks that include "Marlowe In Mexico", "Night Talk", "Main Title Montage", and "The Border – plus even some studio rehearsal on the track, including banter from Clydie King!

✨✧ Illinois JacquetDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Bottoms Up ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Strong sounds from tenorist Illinois Jacquet – a player who first developed his talent in the bigger bands of the 40s, then cut some great small combo material like this in his later years! That raw, bold tone of Jacquet's is very firmly in place – given a great showcase here alongside the Hammond of Milt Buckner, whose romping lines are augmented by work on bass from Roland Lobligeois, and drums from Jo Jones – the latter of whom brings an especially nice groove to the set! Milt also plays a bit of acoustic piano – with a deft touch that's even more compelling than his work on the electric keys – and Jacquet also picks up a bassoon at one point, which makes for a mighty unusual change – a nicely exotic sound. Titles include "Africa Now", "Bottoms Up", "If You Knew What It Does To My Heart", "Blues Funk For Bill Marlowe", and "Jammin For DS". CD also features some bonus tracks – "All the Things You Are", and three alternate takes. CD
