Nice mixture of boppish and swing-based material, and an excellent soulful session that has Illinois Jacquet playing in a stripped-down setting with Ben Tucker on bass, Alan Dawson on drums, and Barry Harris on piano, who adds a nice warm dimension to the set. Jacquet's tone is fantastic as always, and it's a real treat to hear him work his way around the tracks in a relatively free environment. Titles include "Sassy", "Bottoms Up", "Jivin With Jack The Bellboy", and his classic "Port Of Rico". CD
Killer funk from the Italian scene of the 70s – work by the Pulsar Music Ltd combo, originally used as the soundtrack for the crime classic Milano Violenta! Italian crime films were really hitting their height at the time – documenting the new wave of terror that was hitting the cities in the 70s – and music like this perfectly set the scene, with a sharp mix of funk, jazz, and other urban elements – all served up in a non-stop barrage of totally great cuts, of the sort that you'd only find sparsely on American soundtracks of the period. Music is composed by Italian jazz great Enrico Pieranunzi with Silvano Chimenti – and titles include "Leyla Theme", "Running", "Walking At Sunrise", "Six In", "Swinging Day", "Blue Funk", "Dreamland", and "Cat Theme".

A gun blasts, a voice comes over a loudspeaker, a woman screams – and off you go into the mad film world of Peter Thomas! This excellent CD brings together tracks written by Thomas for the Edgar Wallace and Jerry Cotton films – 60s German crime and detective thrillers that were graced by some incredible soundtracks! Thomas' approach is amazing – a mix of guitars, organ, horn, strings, and sinister sounds – all blended together with an approach that's a lot more striking than any 60s work we can think of from John Barry, Ennio Morricone, or similar composers. The format of the disc is nice too – with combinations of songs from individual films, in longer mini-suites of music. Includes tracks from Caught At Midnight, Der Zinker, Der Hexer, Im Banne Des Unheimlichen, Die Tote Aus Der Themse, Der Bucklige Von Soho, Der Mann Mit Dem Glasauge, and Two Voices Blues. CD
