Henry ManciniCharade ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1963. Used ... $16.99
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-heavy instrumental version and a cool vocal version with a Mancini chorus – but the other tunes are arguably even better, and range from Euro-styled numbers to Latin groovers, to some tenser dramatic moments. The recording quality is wonderful – filled with echo and space – and titles include "Orange Tamoure", "Punch & Judy", "Latin Snowfall", "Bateau Mouche", "Bistro", and "Mambo Parisienne". CD

Henry ManciniExperiment In Terror ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1962. Used ... $13.99
A killer soundtrack from Henry Mancini – a record that's got both the terror promised in the title, and some sweeter moments that are pure Mancini all the way! Instrumentation is relatively jazzy overall – with some tight horn passages that shift between swinging saxes and lighter woodwind moments – a mixture of west coast cool and grittier elements that really does a nice job of marking the generation of the score. Players aren't listed, but we're betting they're some of Hank's hippest associates – and titles include "Flutter's Ball", "Kelly's Tune", "Tooty Twist", "Teen Age Hostage", "White On White", and "Down By The Wharf".

Henry ManciniHatari ... CD
RCA/BMG (Spain), 1962. Used ... $8.99
Mancini's light lilting groovy score to this flop of a film by Howard Hawks! Again, the score is better remembered than the film – probably because it gave the world the great cut "Baby Elephant Walk", a goofy little number that still gets churned up a lot today. There's lots of other nice bits like that one on here, including "Big Band Bwana", "Night Side", "Crocodile Go Home", and "Sounds Of Hatari". CD

Henry ManciniMancini Country/Country Gentleman ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two unusual Nashville-tinged albums from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Mancini Country is quite an interesting set – not what you might expect from the mostly-urbane Henry Mancini – but a record that fits surprisingly well into his early 70s catalog! At the time, Hank was moving away from some of the bolder, jazzier modes of his start – and heading towards moodier, mellower music that had a great late nite vibe. His use of isolated piano and chorus is well-known on other records of the time – and comes through great here on tracks that were recorded both in Nashville and Hollywood. Titles are mostly country classics – many from the RCA catalog – recast as Mancini instrumentals – with titles that include "Let It Be Me", "Last Date", "Almost Persuaded", "The End Of The World", "Phone Call To The Past", "I Can't Stop Loving You", and "Make The World Go Away". Country Gentleman has Henry Mancini moving towards some sweet updates of his older piano and chorus mode – using country tunes as the template, but also working in some nice 70s elements to the arrangements and orchestrations! Things are a bit less dark than other albums in his late nite vibe of the period – and there's occasional flourishes in the instrumentation that are almost a playful poke at country styles, handled with the usual Mancini class. Titles include "With One Exception", "Delta Dawn", "If You've Got The Time", "Your Cheatin Heart", "For The Good Times", and "Come Live With Me". CD

Henry ManciniMancini Touch ... CD
RCA, 1959. Used ... $18.99
Delightful instrumentals – not as jazzy as Mancini's regular soundtrack work, but still pretty nice! The tracks are more in an easy instrumental vein – but given Hank's style, they're still pretty cool, especially as they feature work by west coast jazzmen like Shelly Manne, Victor Feldman, Bob Bain, and Ted Nash. Titles include "Like Young", "Bijou", "That's All", "Snowfall", "Let's Walk", and "Trav'lin Light". CD

Henry ManciniMr Lucky ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1959. Used ... $8.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes you wish the track went on and on and on again – but Mancini brilliantly follows that gem up with a host of wonderful other tunes – cool numbers that move past even the familiar crime jazz that Hank had given us on Peter Gunn, into a level of instrumental sophistication that set a whole new tone for the 60s generation to come. Other tunes include "Lightly Latin", "Tipsy", "One Eyed Cat", "Chime Time", and "March Of The Cue Balls", a Mancini classic if there ever was one! CD

Henry ManciniOklahoma Crude ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1973. Used ... $4.99
An unusual one for Henry Mancini – and a real depature from his usual groovy soundtrack work, in favor of a western-themed batch of tunes! As you'd guess from the title, the album's got a distinct "Texas" sound – with tracks that kind of mosey along in a spaghetti western sort of way, mixed with others that have a more ambitious and dramatic orchestral finish. Instrumentation includes some nice use of the baritone and trombone by Dick Nash, a bit of country fiddle from Bobby Bruce, and choral vocals on the harmonica-tinged "Send A Little Love My Way", a catchy theme that's also handled in a "Moon River" style on the instrumental version. Other titles include "Lena's Tune", "Lightfinger", "Cleon & Lena", and "The Dude Of My Dreams". CD

Henry ManciniParty - Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
BMG/RCA (Japan), 1968. Used ... $14.99
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry Mancini! The tunes are very groovy – with a few chorus vocal numbers, and some other wonderful tracks that mix together bits of sitar, guitar, and horn blasts – creating a very lively instrumental groove. Plus, the music is played by a tight group of LA jazzmen, including Shelly Manne, Plas Johnson, Jimmy Rowles, and Jack Sheldon. Titles include instrumental and chorus versions of "Nothing To Lose", plus "Chicken Little Was Right", "Birdie Num Num", "Party Poop", "Wiggy", and "Brunette In Yellow". Swingin! CD

Henry ManciniTwo For The Road/Me Natalie ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A Henry Mancini double-header – two overlooked soundtracks, back to back on a single CD! First up is Two For The Road – a wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid, serious feel – mixed with lighter numbers that make for nice mood changers, both on record and in the film. An orchestra is used on most numbers, occasionally with some European touches, given the setting of the movie – and a chorus performs one version of the theme, alongside two other instrumental ones. Titles include "The Chaser", "Something Loose", "Congarocka", "Happy Barefoot Boy", "The Lovely Life", and "The Donk". Me Natalie is one of the more unusual Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – partly because it was recorded for Columbia Records, and not his usual home of RCA – and partly because it features some great vocal contributions from Rod McKuen! Most of the set is instrumental – and the tunes have a perfect blend of 60s Mancini styles – a few warmly sentimental numbers mixed with some others that are nicely groovy – sometimes with a bit of jazz, sometimes with a gliding vocal chorus used in very cool ways – and just an occasional hint of the electric instrumentation that Mancini would use more in the 70s. Rod McKuen sings on the titles "We" and "Natalie" – and Patty Duke provides dialogue on the title "Dear David" – and instrumental tracks include "Free", "Sequence For Uncle Harry", "A Groovy Mood", "In & Out Of Love Montage", and "Bench Warmer".

Henry ManciniVisions Of Eight ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1973. Used ... $6.99
A wonderful Henry Mancini soundtrack, and one of his most overlooked – possibly because it was scored for an odd little film that featured the work of eight different directors! The mood of the film changes a lot based on the directorial style, but the score's got some really wonderful moments that offer the best that Mancini had to offer at the time – including some really nice lightly dancing groovers that sparkle with a 70s bossa style – and others that have that cool, pillowy approach to sound that Henry was using on his great mellow records of the period. Titles "Salute To The Olympians", "Ludmilla's Theme", "Spaced Out", "Warm Up", "Soft Flight", and "The Race". CD

Chris McGregorChris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath (Italian pressing) ... CD
RCA/Neon/Akarma (Italy), 1971. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
In the early 70s, pianist Chris McGregor was one of the leading lights of the British jazz scene – an expatriot South African living in London, whose work with the legendary group The Blue Notes was steeped in an African rhythmic traditions! This seminal work from 1971 shows how much McGregor's style evolved in the late 60's, and how fiercely it had become intertwined with the British avant styles of the time – in a groove that comes across here with an earthy, rootsy bottom – but also features plenty of far-reaching solos that go out, yet never too far – the best balance of modes from players that include fellow Blue Notes Mongezi Feza, Dudu Pukwana, and Louis Moholo – as well as British jazz luminaries who include Harry Beckett, Alan Skidmore, and John Surman. Titles include "Andromeda", "Union Special", "Night Poem", "MRA", "The Bride", and "Davashe's Dream". CD

Helen Merrill & Piero UmilianiParole E Musica ... CD
RCA (France), 1961. Used ... $11.99
A strange and obscure session that has the cool jazz vocals of American singer Helen Merrill backed by a small Italian combo led by soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a wonderful mix that really makes the album an unusual one for Helen! The music was originally recorded for a TV program in Italy, and each track is preceded by an Italian voice, reciting Italian versions of the lyrics over spare musical backing – then Merrill's voice comes in with a bigger jazz group, singing each track in English – a very nice level of presentation! And although the whole thing sounds crazy, it actually works well – and gives the album a compelling edge and kind of a sexy late-night quality – with great instrumentation that includes flute from Gino Marinacci and guitar from Enzo Grillini. Tracks include "Solitude", "Everything Happens To Me", "Night & Day", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD

MetrosSweetest One ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
One of the greatest Northern Soul albums ever – completely great all the way through, and filled with songs that have been burning up dancefloors for years! The vocals are incredible – soaring harmonies that hold together perfectly, even when the grooves are hard and heavy – and the instrumentation is great too – handled by the Pied Piper team, who were kind of a Motown offshoot that featured Jack Ashford on vibes and percussion, Dave Hamilton and Ray Monette on guitar, and Joe Hunter on piano. Hunter and Ashford handled the arrangements – with a pitch-perfect sound that's completely sublime – sweet and grooving at the same time, and put together with the same kind of care you'd find at Motown – but with all the harder-edge qualities that always made indie work from Detroit so great. Every cut is a winner, and the set is the only full album ever done by the group – with cuts that include "Egyptian Love", "Till The End Of Time", "Since I Found My Baby", "Sweetest One", "Unlucky Sun", "I'll Never Forget You", "Do The Pied Piper", and "I'm With You All The Way". Great reissue – fully remastered from the original tapes – with new liner notes too! CD

Luciano MicheliniLa Conquista Di Luna ... CD
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A journey into space with a wonderful sound – served up here as a set of cosmic instrumentals from Luciano Michelini, most of which have a pretty groovy vibe! The mix of 60s instrumentation, spacey touches, and light electric moments reminds us of Peter Thomas or Johnny Harris at their best – and although Michelini's not as well-known as those giants from his generation, he works here with a vibe that perfectly matches everything we love in their music! Light funky rhythms trip along the bottom – peppered with cool keyboards or woodwinds, and occasional wordless vocals – all in this way that provides a wonderful 60s fantasy of the moon, and one that's actually a lot more exciting than any of the real moon landing records out there. Titles include "Tycho", "A Mrs Armstrong", "Il Volto Nascosto Di Luna", "Meteoriti", "Richiamo Di Terra", and "Odissea Nello Spazio". CD

RCA, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Oh how we love this one! This killer 2LP set takes one of Mingus' best-ever records, and makes it even better! The original Tijuana Moods album was recorded in 1957 but not released until 1962 – and the record features one of Mingus' strongest groups ever, with Shafi Hadi on alto and Clarence (aka Gene) Shaw on trumpet. If you've ever had any doubts about Mingus, this album will blow your mind! This great double set features original takes and alternate ones for every track on the album, including "Dizzy Moods", "Ysabel's Tabel Dance", and "Tijuana Gift Shop". 9 tracks in all – and one of the best bunches of Mingus you can buy!

Hugo MontenegroGood Vibrations ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1969. Used ... $19.99
Pre-moog work from Hugo Montenegro – but a set that's still pretty darn groovy! The Beach Boys reference in the title is very well put, as Hugo's using some cool harmony vocals for the record – a chorus that definitely takes some of its inspiration from Brian Wilson, singing here both with lyrics, and some wordless modes – not on every track, but used enough to give the record a really Sunshine Pop sort of appeal! Other instrumentation is great too – electric bass underneath fuller strings, offbeat woodwinds, fuzzy guitar, and even a bit of whistling – which has a cool sort of electronic feel. The blend of sounds is amazing – very unique, and already showing that Montenegro's one of the hippest talents of the 60s. Titles include "Classical Gas", "Rosemary's Baby", "Night Rider", "Lady in Cement", "A Future Left Behind", "Tony's Theme", and "Good Vibrations". CD

✨✧ VariousRare Collectable & Soulful Vol 2 – Northern Soul's Holy Grail ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at the rich soul legacy of RCA Records in the 60s – a label that may well be known for its big pop hits, or its achievements in Nashville – but also a surprising powerhouse of of upbeat, uptempo soul when it came to their singles! For some special reason, RCA really seemed to allow a hell of a lot of creative freedom in the soul department – unlike their country, which was often very strictly controlled in terms of production – and the result is a huge amount of extremely creative, extremely groovy, and pretty damn soulful tracks that come together beautifully on this set! Many singles were pressed in small numbers, and hardly ever circulated or promoted at the time – which means that the whole thing definitely lives up to the "rare collectable" in the title – and the set also features some tracks that appear here for the first time ever! Titles on this second volume include "Dance Little Girl" by The Cavaliers, "Love Is So Wonderful" by Dean Courtney, "Movin' Too Slow" by The Exciters, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "My Imagination" by The Metros, "Can't Let You Go" by The Geminis, "American Dollar" by Willie Kendrick, and lots lots more.

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersHard Bop (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1956. Used ... $19.99
A killer album – one of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides, and a blinding set of hard-driving jazz that well earns its title! The group is one of Blakey's pre-Timmons/Morgan/Shorter ones – with Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, Spanky DeBrest on bass, and Sam Dockery on piano – and they come together here with a sense of fire and imagination that tops even some of their other work for labels like RCA or Argo during the same stretch. Blakey's sense of timing and poise is in full force here – giving the younger players plenty of room to do their thing, which also includes contributing a number of key tracks to the set! Titles include a stellar reading of Jackie McLean's great composition "Little Melonae", plus the tracks "Cranky Spanky", "Stella By Starlight", and "Stanley's Stiff Chickens". CD

A hard-swinging cooker from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – recorded during the landmark year of 1957 – when Blakey's group was open to recording for a number of different labels, in a number of different settings! The set was originally done for the west coast stalwart Pacific Jazz, but it's got a sound that's much more in the hardbop mode of the New York scene – all the fire and intensity that Blakey first cooked up for Blue Note, cast out with a slight sense of openness here in the less iconic setting. Players include Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the album's right up there with Vik/RCA, Savoy, and Chess material they cut at the time. Tracks include "Touche", "Sam's Tune", "Once Upon A Groove", and "Wake Up". CD

Reissue of the rare Vik album by trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, originally recorded in 1956, with a number of different groups that include players like Al Cohn, Milt Hinton, Nick Travis, Hank Jones, and Gene Quill. The approach is typical to the RCA jazz releases of the 50s – lots of tight ensemble playing, and mostly short solos in a call & response manner. A few tracks are a bit longer than usual – which is nice – and these include "Nature Boy", "Open Country", and "Confusion Blues". CD

Joanna BroukHearing Music ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 17.98
Beautiful sounds from Joanna Brouk – an artist who was sometimes lost amidst the new age scene of the 80s, but one who's got a much deeper, more intellectual approach overall! True, Brouk's music does have a certain meditative spirit – but she also was a student of Terry Riley and Robert Ashley, and drank deep of the new compositional spirit of the time – especially in the work of Riley, which is often reflected here, but in a more contemplative way than his own recordings. Music sometimes features a core line on flute, opening up and unfolding slowly – and there's also some nice piano, and even a bit of conch shell and Orca sounds too. Double-length set features the usual strong Numero Group level of notes and history – and contains 22 tracks in all, some of which were only ever issued on cassette! CD

These are primal, raw early recordings, circa 1976 – and a great early snapshot of one the greatest punk era bands – not only in the UK – anywhere on earth! No remix, live recorded demos, but it's no mere fuzzy, "for super fans only" mess by anys stretch, this is honestly worthy of their legacy – and with a slightly different feel than the legendary singles, given Howard Devoto sings lead rather than Pete Shelley. Includes "You Tear Me Up", "Orgasm Addict", "Boredom", "Time's Up", "Love Battery", "Don't Mess Me Around" and "I Love You, You Big Dummy". CD

An overlooked chapter in the career of the great Rosemary Clooney – recordings done for a variety of labels in the 60s, all of which show Clooney both as a strongly maturing jazz singer, and as a vocalist who was willing to take on some new ideas too! The package is huge – 8CDs in all, with a fantastic hardcover booklet of notes and photos – and it features work recorded for MGM, Coral, RCA, Reprise, and Capitol Records – including sessions with Billy May and Nelson Riddle, and some surprisingly great duet material with Bing Crosby too.

A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but which still manages to include a few great Dennis originals. And despite a cover that looks a bit lurid – with Dennis cornering a model inside a hotel room – the overall feel of the record is quite homey and domestic, with tunes that echo images of hearth and family, but often with the kind of nod and a wink which you might expect from Matt's usual approach to a tune. Titles include "Home", "Welcome Mat", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "By The Fireside", "A Cup Of Coffe A Sandwich & You", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "Your Family". CD

Paul DesmondLemme Tell Ya 'Bout Desmond – The Music Of Paul Desmond ... CD
Label M, Early 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $1.99
A nice little collection of work by Paul Desmond – one that offers up three distinct slices of his career! Most of the work here is from Desmond's wonderful recordings for RCA in the early 60s – some of his first truly great albums as a leader, most of which were done in the company of guitarist Jim Hall – in a sublimely spare groove that's somewhere between bossa and the west coast cool that Desmond helped forge in the 50s. A few other tracks in the set are from Paul's early 70s years at CTI – recordings that almost recreate the mood of the RCA years, but with a slightly more open, contemporary vibe. In between these are two tracks from Paul's years at A&M – great recordings, of course, but also better documented on other albums. Other players on the CD include Gabor Szabo, Gerry Mulligan, Connie Kay, and Bob James – and titles include "I'm Old Fashioned", "Skylark", "Take Ten", "Stardust", "When Joanna Loved Me", "Desmond Blue", "Bossa Antigua", "El Condor Pasa", "Samba With Some Barbeque", and "A Taste Of Honey".
