Luis BacalovLo Chiamavano Mezzogiorno/The Man Called Noon ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A richer, more complex soundtrack than you might expect for a spaghetti western – scored by maestro Luis Bacalov with some of the fuller qualities he'd bring to his more famous international work in later years! There's almost a sentimental quality to the record at points – these strings that swell and dip with a subtle sense of melody, before giving way to some darker, much more brooding passages – done with instrumentation that's a lot more spare, and a lot more tense – as stark percussion bits burst out next to moodier tones too. A few warmer moments bubble forth at points, but overall there's a sense of stark tension to the record – on titles that include "Discovering", "Fan", "The Man Called Noon", "Mr Rubble Noon", "In The Fortress", and "Rimes".

✨✧ Sue RaneyDreamsville – The Music Of Henry Mancini ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $21.99
Henry Mancini's best remembered as one of the most important instrumental film composers of the 60s and 70s – but the man also gave us a fair bit of vocal gems, too – great cuts that were co-composed with lyricists who include Johnny Mercer, Leslie Bricusse, Jay Livinston, and the team of Alan & Merilyn Bergman! All those talents are well-represented here – in a sparkling set of vocal tunes from the pen of Mancini – sung by the great Sue Raney in a jazzy mode that really keeps things swinging, as do the arrangements of Alan Broadbent – who leaves in all the complex tones and colors Hank's tunes, but makes them step out nicely for Sue! Titles include great readings of "Dreamsville", "Mr Lucky", "Whistling Away In The Dark", "Little Boys", "Two For The Road", "Loss Of Love", and "Life In A Looking Glass". CD

Labi SiffreRemember My Song ... LP
EMI/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Easily the best-remembered album by Labi Siffre – thanks to some well-used sample tracks over the years! But over and above the fame of the funky tunes "The Vulture" and "I Got The", the record's a key part of Siffre's 70s catalog – a record that's as great for its complex songwriting and deeply personal lyrics as it is for its Fender Rhodes lines, and tight musical backings from the combo of Big Jim Sullivan. All titles here are originals, and even when the groove slows down there's a depth that clearly marks Labi as one of the best singer/songwriters of the 70s – a talent who's been finally rediscovered in recent years, although sometimes only remembered for a few jazzy hooks from these tunes, and not the strength of the whole magilla! Here's your chance to dip into the Siffre sound at its fullest – on tracks that include "The Vulture", "I Got The", "Another Year", "Down", "Old Time Song", "Sadie & The Devil", "Remember My Song", and "Turn On Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy-cover vinyl reissue!)

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
A fantastic bit of jazz funk fusion – and one of the landmark 70s albums produced by Larry Mizell! This is Gary Bartz's second (and most amazing) collaboration with Larry Mizell – and more proof that Mr. M was a genius in the studio who could completely transform anyone's sound into a complex jazzy groove! The title cut, "Music Is My Sanctuary," is a jazz fusion classic in anyone's book, and it features characteristic Mizell keyboards alongside Gary's soulful sax, augmented by a deep vocal chorus that's simply fantastic. Other highlights include "Carnaval De L'Esprit" and "Macaroni" – and the whole album's nice! CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniSix Hours Past Sunset/A Warm Shade Of Ivory ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two laidback gems from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Six Hours Past Sunset is moody and mellow – and perfect for late nite listening! The album has the tinkling piano of Mancini set over lush orchestrations – breezy, yet dark at the same time, outwardly simple, but filled with complex riffing and sophisticated washes of color and emotion. The larger group features a few horn soloists, but the real focus is on Mancini's piano – which peppers each track with sprinkles of sound, darting in and out of the more complicated arrangements. Titles include "Traces", "Midnight Cowboy", "Two For The Road", "Didn't We", "Six Hours Past Sunset", and "Theme From The Fox". Warm Shade Of Ivory is lovely late nite Mancini! The album has Mr. M's tinkling piano set amidst dark moody arrangements that bank the piano in warm washes of strings and light lilting rhythms – all moving at a slow somber pace that's perfect for a summer night with the lights down low, the windows open, relaxing in a big easy chair with a drink while the breeze and the sounds of the summer waft over the room. The record is subtle, but a wonderful example of Mancini's continuing instrumental genius. Titles include "Watch What Happens", "Day In The Life Of A Fool", "Cycles", "Meditation", "When I Look In Your Eyes", and "Moment To Moment". CD

✨✧ Marcos ValleEssential Marcos Valle Vol 2 ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing! One of our favorite records of all time! We totally love the work of Marcos Valle – and we can honestly say that he's probably our favorite Brazilian artist ever. Valle had an incredible musical vision, and he was one of those rare Brazilian talents – like Edu Lobo or Egberto Gismonti – who would forever change the face of music with his unique concepts. This set includes some of Valle's best-ever work – much of it long out of print and never properly reissued before. The groove begins with bossa nova, moves into baroque pop, jazzy funk, and incredibly complex MPB. Titles include "Tanto Andei", "Wanda Vidal", "Batucada Sergiu", "Azimuth", "Deus Brasileiro", "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal", "Garra", "Previsao Do Tempo", and "Taio Branco Forte". CD

✨✧ Walter NorrisStepping On Cracks ... CD
Progressive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Genius work from the always-compelling Walter Norris – a pianist with a sense of complexity that's always mesmerizing, but one who can also find a way to effortlessly swing at the same time – which he does beautifully on this overlooked set from the early 80s! Most tracks are long, and filled with the kind of soaring lines and cascading tones that Walter can bring to the piano – lyrical lines, but also punctuated with a sharper edge too – given beautiful support here from bassist George Mraz, whose work at this point in his career is always fantastic – and drummer Ronnie Bedford, who lays back, and comes in at just the right moments. Titles include "Giant Steps", "A Child Is Born", "Stepping On Cracks", and "Falling In Love With Love". CD

✨✧ Tommy FlanaganThelonica ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's a definite Monkish bent to this one, in case you couldn't guess from the title – but Tommy Flanagan doesn't simply copy Monk's compositions, but also throws in a few great touches of his own! The session's got a depth and complexity that goes beyond other standard tributes to Thelonious Monk – partly due to Tommy's lyrical approach to the keys, which warms some of the tunes nicely, and shades in colors that Monk never seemed to touch. Trio members here include George Mraz on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and titles include "Thelonica", "Off Minor", "Ugly Beauty", "Reflections", "Thelonius", and "North Of The Sunset".

✨✧ Tom Ze/Jorge BenJimmy Renda Se/Take it Easy My Brother Charlie ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest tunes ever from Tom Ze – an artist you may know best for his more offbeat work of the 70s, but who gets nice and funky here on "Jimmy Rende Se" – yet at a level that keeps all his vocal complexity intact! The flipside features Jorge Ben's classic "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" – one of the singer's first great funky soul tunes, and a cut that definitely woke up the world to a whole new side of his talents! 7-inch, Vinyl record
