Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy vinyl – with a bonus poster too!)

Rita LeeHoje E O Primeiro Dia Do Resto Da Sua Vida (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Phonogram (Japan), 1960. Used ... $18.99
Hip vocal tracks from Dutch singer Rita Reyes – recorded with backing by the Pim Jacobs Trio, a lively combo that features Pim's piano, plus bass and guitar – a nicely light rhythmic style that really works well for the vocals! The format is simple, but compelling – and the record's a great chance to hear Rita at her best – singing in a style that made her one of the best European female jazz singers of her day – right up there next to Monica Zetterlund, Karin Krog, and a rare few others to come to prominence at the start of the 60s. Titles include "Summertime", "I've Got The World On A String", "Too Close For Comfort", "But Not For Me", "Thou Swell", "Like Someone In Love", and "No Moon At All". CD

A stunning debut from Maria Rita – the daughter of Elis Regina and Cesar Camargo Mariano, a team responsible for some of the greatest music in Brazil during the 70s! Maria has a sad and sweet voice – a lot like her mother's, and recorded here in a setting that includes light jazz, bossa, and samba touches. Very nice stuff overall, and sure to get her career started on the right foot. Titles include "A Festa", "Agora So Falta Voci", "Menininha Do Portao", "Dos Gardenias", "Veja Bem Meu Bem", "Cupido", "Lavadeira Do Rio", and "Encontros". CD

Maria RitaSamba Meu ... CD
Warner, 2007. Used ... $2.99
A really beautiful little record by Maria Rita – and a wonderful departure from her previous sets! This time around, as you might guess from the title, Maria's serving up a host of samba tunes – done in a mostly-acoustic mode that crackles with live percussion, acoustic guitar, and other Brazilian instrumentation – a beautifully unfettered setting that almost has Rita sounding even better than before – a lot more human and a lot more personal, shaking off the personal heritage that served well to introduce her to the world, but which also somehow held her back. It's clear from the notes that Maria's a relative newcomer to the samba, but she takes to the style perfectly here – and brings in a sense of warmth and jazz that in turn really help liven up the genre. The balance here is beautiful, and the album's way more than we could have expected – a true treasure from an artist who's finally beginning to make us sit up and take notice. Titles include "Corpitcho", "Novo Amor", "Trajetoria", "O Que E O Amor", "Samba Meu", "O Homem Falou", "Ta Perdoado", "Num Corpo So","Maltratar Nao E Direito", and "Maria Do Socorro". CD

✨✧ Maria Rita (Maria Rita Stumpf)Brasileira ... LP
Selva (Brazil), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Not the same Maria Rita that rose to international fame in the past decade or so – but an earlier, much more obscure singer with a nicely rootsy vibe – one whose presence in the Brazilian music scene is maybe more welcome to our ears than her famous later namesake! The album came out at the end of the 80s, but has a sound that feels more like the experimental generation of MPB in the 70s – some moments that have the brashness of Gal Costa around her India album, other moments of gentleness that recall the sensitive soul of Joyce, and maybe a few slight touches of the deeper drama of Maria Bethania – and yet, like all of those artists, this Maria Rita is very much her own person – as can easily be heard by the lack of pop production or commercial efforts on this very unique album. Titles include "Cantico Brasileiro No 1", "Cancao Da Gaora", "Lamento Africano/Rictus", "A Cidade", "Melodia De Veludo", and "Trilhas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rita Reys5 Original Albums (Meets Oliver Nelson/Rita A Go Go/Today/Relax With Rita & Pim/Sings Antonio Carlos Jobim) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful tribute to this European singer – the lovely Rita Reys, served up here in a package that features five of her best albums, all in little LP-styled sleeves! First up is a record on which Rita Reys meets Oliver Nelson – and a host of other great jazz talents, including Lee Konitz, Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, and Klaus Doldinger! The tracks on the set are all standards, but they're done in the tightly swinging style of Nelson's best backing work for vocalists at the time – complete with those warm tones and colors that always made his work some of our favorite in this mode. The mode is a bit different for Reys, who we normally know from more fragile settings – but it works especially well here, and almost seems to compensate for a faltering quality in her vocals at the time. Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "Quiet Nights", "The Second Time Around", "If I Were A Bell", "Ill Wind", and "Wives & Lovers". Rita A Go Go is a wonderful live set – recorded with backings by a full orchestra led by Pim Jacobs, who bring a soulful punch to the proceedings that's really wonderful – and which helps Reys step out even more strongly than usual! Jacobs plays a bit of Hammond on the set, which is especially nice to hear next to Rita's vocals – and titles include "Call Me", "So Nice", "Sunny", "Day Tripper", "Goin Out Of My Head", and "Goodbye Sadness". Today is an incredibly groovy record from Dutch singer Rita Reys – quite possibly her grooviest ever, thanks to some very hip London touches from the Scott Walker team of Peter Knight on arrangements and Johnny Franz on production! At the end of the 60s, London was definitely one of the hippest places for a vocalist to work – a place where singers like Elis Regina, Blossom Dearie, and Ella Fitzgerald all opened up their talents tremendously. Rita does the same here – working with instrumentation that's full, flowing, and perfectly pitched to handle both the upbeat moments on the record, and the more contemplative ones – cast out over a well-chosen batch of tunes that go way beyond the standards! Titles include "The Moment Of Truth", "Soon It's Gonna Rain", "Our Language Of Love", "Sing A Rainbow", "You'd Better Love Me", "More Than You Know", and "Come Back To Me". Relax With Rita & Pim is a collection of work recorded by Dutch singer Rita Reys – all done with very jazzy backing by the Pim Jacobs Combo, a group that Rita often sang with at the time! The tunes on the set have some very groovy 60s touches – light bossa rhythms, sweet 60s approaches to rhythm, and a syncopated swing that makes the record groove a bit more than some of her other work from the time. In fact, the feel of the set's so nicely swinging, that the "relax" in the title is a bit misplaced – as out of all of Rita's records, this is the one that makes us want to get up out of the chair! Titles "Summertime", "Waltz For Debby", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Desafinado", "Bluesette", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Fly Me To The Moon". The last album is Rita Reys Sings Antonio Carlos Jobim – a set that shows that move into moodier modes that the vocalist took in later years – with a style that works beautifully here for the bossa compositions! Backings are by Rogier Van Otterloo, but the set also features a core combo with frequent collaborator, pianist Pim Jacobs – and the blend of piano, strings, and vocals has all the right lofty currents for these classic tunes by Jobim, with almost a mature Claus Ogerman vibe to the whole record. Titles include "Dindi", "How Insensitive", "This Happy Madness", "Triste, "Song Of The Sabia", and "Once Again". CD

✨✧ Rita ReysI Got Rhythm – Rare & Unissued Recordings 1949 to 1964 ... CD
MCN (Netherlands), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rare work from Dutch singer Rita Reys – one of the best jazz vocalists on the European scene during the postwar years! Rita's got this way of singing deeply, yet still keeping things swinging – a really great balance that has her never getting too emotive, certainly not in ways you might normally associate with European singers – yet also still managing to bring a great sort of depth to her music! Jazz formats dominate throughout – and these rare archive sessions feature Rita singing with the groups of Pim Jacobs, Piet Van Dijk, Bo Edgar, Ove Lind, Mat Mathews, and Lars Gullin – all with a great deal of clarity, every bit as much as you'd hear from Reys' studio recordings of the period. Titles include "Charge Account", "Mean To Me", "I Got Rhythm", "There's A Small Hotel", "Get Out Of Town", "Willow Weep For Me", "All Of You", "When The Blues Come On", and "She's Funny That Way".

✨✧ SyreetaRita Wright Years – Rare Motown 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare early material from one of the hippest singers on 70s Motown – the heavenly Syreeta, best known for her seminal work with Stevie Wonder – heard here in the years before, on a rare single and a huge amount of never-issued tracks! Syreeta first worked for Motown under the name of Rita Wright – but apart from a 1967 single on Gordy, and a handful of compilation tracks in recent years, almost all her work for the label at the time appears here for the first time ever – a massive 18 of the collection's total 24 tracks – offering up a huge look at the early days of this wonderful talent! Even at the start, Syreeta's got a style that's hipper than most – righteous currents that point the way towards the 70s, and set her apart from some of the other female singers on the label – with a vibe that's completely sublime. We're really not sure why these cuts have been hidden for so long – because on any other label, they'd be hit material – especially given that production his handled by giants like Hal Davis, Stevie Wonder, Ashford & Simpson, and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team. One of the coolest sets of female soul you'll buy in a long, long time – with titles that include "Bad Boy", "Ain't I Gonna Win Your Love", "Beware Of A Stranger", "Love Child", "Since You Came Back", "Mind Body & Soul", "May His Love Shine Forever", "Something On My Mind", "That's What He Told Me", "It Don't Mean Nothin To Me", "Give Back The Good Things", "Can You Feel It Babe", "Save The Country", "Hurtin Me", "Love My Lovin Man", and "Where There's A Will There's A Way".

The octet have a great way of trading voices back and forth with their grooves – in a mode that's almost South African at some points, but which also seems influenced by American soul, too – especially on some of the more hard-grooving numbers! The more sing-song tracks are still plenty seductive, too – and titles include "Tired Of Being Alone", "My Sweet Rita", "Ngonile", "My Quanty Shoes", and "I Don't Doubt About You".

The tracks have a sweeping groovy approach – large orchestrations, sunny, bouncy, with some strings mixed in with tighter small combo grooving. A few of the tracks have more exotic themes, kind of echoing the uptown world of the film – but overall the score's a nice batch of late 60s groovers with some sweet mod elements!

There's few groups cooler than I Marc 4 – one of the hippest forces in the Italian sound library studio scene of the 70s – ultra-hip, often-funky, and as groovy as groovy can be – even though these guys were continuously working behind the curtain, and never getting any sort of real exposure to the public! That hasn't stopped their music from becoming the stuff of legend, though – as over the years, material like this has rightly earned the group strong praise from legions of collectors – of both instrumental funk, funky jazz, and hip soundtrack material.

The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that's partly postmodern, partly psychedelic, and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can't understand most of the lyrics! Styles are just about impossible to pin down, but that's what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the Tropicalia years, this one may well be it! A few tracks are written by Tom Ze, and titles include "Dom Quixote", "Dia 36", "Magica", "Rita Lee", "Algo Mais", "Qualquer Bobagem", and "Fuga No II". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is very different than their early albums, but it's actually pretty darn great, if you dig 70's era Yes or ELP. This live set has them jamming more than ever, with lots of long drawn out keyboard solos and guitar licks, and vocals that are a bit more soulful than on some of their other prog albums.

Wild! This lost Mutantes LP fits in between Mutantes E Seus Cometas and the Mutantes Ao Vivo LP – and like the latter, it's got a very progressive feel! The band has changed membership (Rita Lee's no longer in the group), and it's clear that they've been listening to a lot of Yes – as you can hear in the very Rick Wakeman-esque keyboards of Tulio Mourao. The sound is still pretty groovy, though, although we should let you know that it's more prog-rock than avant-rock (which is how we might characterize their earlier stuff). There's lots of very tight jamming by the band, with hard guitar solos, spacey keyboards, and tight ensemble playing – a little bit like the early titles by Som Imaginario. Tracks include "Pitagoras", "Cidadao Da Terra", "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol", "Desanuviar", and "Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Agua No Quintal". LP, Vinyl record album

Brilliant stuff – the follow-up to Sesame Street, a hipper show that was aimed at older kids, and which kind of played up the groovier aspect of the music a bit more at times. The soundtrack features performances by Bill Cosby, Rita Moreno, Morgan Freeman, Irene Cara, June Angela, and Skip Hinnant – as well as many others – and the tunes are a groovy groovy batch of tunes written by Joe Raposo in the same mode as his best work for Sesame Street. If anything, there's a bit more hippie in this one – as well as a bit more Multiplication Rock goofiness – as you'd guess by tunes with titles like "Giggles Goggles", "Silent E", "Easy Reader", "Love Of Chair", "Sign Song", "Downright Uptight", and "Punctuation".

Geraldo VandreCanto Geral ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Near Mint- ... $33.99
We love this album! This is the best record ever by Geraldo Vandre – one of the most important voices in MPB in the pre-Tropicalia years, working here in a sublime mix of styles that foreshadows some of the best Brazilian styles of the 70s. Vandre's songs are incredibly dark – with slightly folksy overtones that recall some of Nara Leao's best work of the same time – but which often have an even more political, socially conscious nature. Backings are by Lyrio Panicali, but they're very spare – so that acoustic guitar and Vandre's voice carry most of the tracks – but also hint at some other elements that dip and turn out of the murky background. A perfect description of this one is impossible, but the sound of the record will grab you immediately – with a presence that few records from this time can match! Titles include "Cantiga Brava", "Maria Rita", "Terra Plana", "Ventania", "O Plantador", and "Joao E Maria". One we wouldn't trade for anything! LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
No need to count down to soul – because it's already here, and served up in a stunning array of rare tracks from the 60s and 70s! We've always loved the Tramp label for their superb take on classic funk – they've been funky 45 specialists right from the start – but this time around, they turn their mighty ears towards the deep underground of indie soul singles – and serve up some really unique cuts that we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a great sense of variety here – there's definitely a few funky cuts, but there's also some deep ballads, some sweet harmony moments, and even some unusual cuts that seem to have a style that's completely onto themselves – which furthers the sense of discovery in the set. We've heard a few of these before, but may are quite new to our ears – and titles include "Do Dat Stuf" by Spangle, "Lovin" by Holly Carroll, "Major Funky" by Ulysses Crockett, "I Don't Know Yet" by Don Patterson, "People Wake Up Before It Is Too Late" by The Chances, "How Tough It Was" by Jackie Johnson's Backbeaters, "Tell It Like It Is" by Rita MacNeil, "Sound Of The Wind" by John Brown, "Superjock" by Reuben Bell, "Here Tis" by Spider Martin, "Do The Airplane" by Mel Production Band, and "Silver Dollar Lady" by International Boogie Band.

VariousLet It Be – Black America Sings Lennon, McCartney, & Harrison ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Think The Beatles only had an impact on rock and pop fans in the America of the 60s? Think again – because their music had an undeniable impact on soul as well – as you'll here from this wonderful range of remakes of classic cuts from the Fab Four! The work here is a real surprise if you don't know the legacy – but it also really makes sense once you're reminded of the mind-expanding, ear-opening territory the group hit in the latter half of the 60s – and working with themes of social change, alienation, and personal longing – of the sort that turn out to be perfect for new interpretations in soul! Most of these cuts are way more than standard cover versions, too – as the arrangements are really inventive, and take off in bold new directions that make the songs very much new properties overall. Most of the work here is from the late 60s and early 70s – and as always with Ace Records, the notes and presentation really put the music in context! Titles include "The Fool On The Hill" by The Four Tops, "Dear Prudence" by The Five Stairsteps, "For No One" by Maceo & The King's Men, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Tomorrow Never Knows" by Junior Parker, "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Do You Want To Know A Secret" by Mary Wells, "Lovely Rita" by Fats Domino, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Undisputed Truth, "Savoy Truffle" by Ella Fitzgerald, and "Let It Be" by Bill Withers.

✨✧ VariousMotown 7s Box Vol 4 – Rare & Unreleased Vinyl (7 x 7 inch box set – with download) ... 7-inch
Motown/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch ... $88.99
The vinyl debut of 14 rare gems from Motown – all cuts that were only dug up much later than the time at which they were recorded – and which made brief appearances on a variety of different CD reissues over the past decade or so – but appear here on vinyl for the first time ever! Like most of the Motown music from back in the day, these tracks are total gems – and only didn't make it out for release because the label had so much greatness going on. Yet that shouldn't stop them from becoming excellent singles all these many years later – finally showing up in the format. This limited package follows in the same great spirit as the other Motown 7" box sets from the UK – and titles include "That World I Live In" by David Ruffin, "Baby A Go Go" by Barbara McNair, "Share A Little Love With Me" by The Monitors, "Don't Stop Loving Me" by Ivy Jo Hunter, "Sometimes I Have To Cry" by The Contours, "Sweet Thing" by Marvin Gaye, "Baby Come Home To Me" by Shorty Long, "Ain't You Glad You Chose Love" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Give In You Just Can't Win" by Tammi Terrell, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "Don't Be Afraid" by Bobby Taylor, "Can't Hold The Feeling Back" by Brenda Holloway, "Tell Me How To Forget A True Love" by The Spinners, and "Since You Came Back" by Rita Wright. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Elektra, 1982. Used ... $1.99
A mighty mighty tribute to the great Bob Marley – served up here by a host of former associates, family members, and Jamaican contemporaries – all in some lively concert performances that really open things up! The double-length set was a great seller at the time, and continues to be a spirited document of this key moment of reggae explosion on the global scene – and titles include "Sound System" and "Ku Klux Klan" by Steep Pulse, "Plastic Smile" and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" by Black Uhuru, "The Bed's Too Big Without You" by Sheila Hylton, "Soon Forward" by Gregory Isaacs, "1865" by Third World, "Right Time" by Mighty Diamonds, "If I Had The World" by Dennis Brown, "Belly Full" by Rita Marley & The I-Threes, and "Sugar Pie" by Melody Makers & The Wailers.

AmericaHeritage – Home Recordings/Demos 1970 to 1973 ... CD
Omnivore, Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A dream of a record if you love America as much as us – a set of rare early demo tracks that show the group's harmony charms in a wonderfully stripped-down mode! Most of the work here features acoustic guitar and just a bit of added instrumentation – yet the songs are maybe just as heavenly as the trio's famous studio sides produced by George Martin at the time – lean magic that completely reinvented the role of the harmony voice in rock music for the 70s! A few of these tracks were issued on CD in recent years, but lots of the work here is previously unissued – and together, the whole thing feels like this lost album from the years before their big label fame – the kind of indie roots the group never had, presented here with sound that's way more superb than you might expect from the "home recordings" in the title. Titles include "Goodbye", "Riverside", "Here", "James Holladay", "How Long", "Sea Of Destiny", "Rainy Day", "Satan", "Monster", "Man Of Pride", "Wind Wave", "Mitchum Junction", and "Ventura Highway".

Jerry Butler & The ImpressionsFor Your Precious Love ... CD
Vee Jay/Black Tulip, Late 50s. Used ... $14.99
The only full-length collection of early Impressions work for Vee Jay – mostly singles recorded in the late 50s for the label, brought together as a "with Jerry Butler" album during the early 60s! The set's not only Impressions numbers, but also features a few of Jerry's early solo tracks – still very much under the sway of his years in the group, with the Impressions often as backup vocals – and also featuring a fair bit of original tunes by Curtis Mayfield! Apart from big hits, there's some nice obscure numbers like "At The County Fair", "Lovers Lane", "Believe In Me", "Senorita I Love You", "Let Me Know", and "Young Lover" – plus more familiar tracks that include "The Gift Of Love" and "For Your Precious Love".

Goblin (as Il Reale Imperio Britannico)Perche Si Uccidono ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A nice lost score by the Italian group Goblin – working here under the "fake" British name of Il Reale Impero Britannica – and maybe sounding even groovier than on some of their other records of the 70s! The Goblin sound is still in place, but there's also maybe more ties to some of the other Italian cop/crime work of the period – with great basslines on a number of cuts, which ups the funk quotient more than usual – and lots more sweet keyboards with a jazzy vibe, and maybe less of the rock touches of other Goblin work – especially since there's none of the trademark Goblin fuzzy guitar riffs on the record! Titles include the funky "Kalu", plus "Epopea", "Edda", "My Damned Shit", "Block", "Dodici E Un Quarto", and "Apoltheke". Nice stuff – and with some nice cop/crime moments! CD

Tom JansDark Blonde ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little album from Tom Jans – an artist mostly known for a few key songs that other folks sing, but a surprisingly well-developed talent on this mid 70s album for Columbia! The album's maybe a bit too rootsy to be AOR, but also has a similar handling overall – very top-shelf production, which makes his well-penned songs sound even better. Jans has a nice sort of edge to his vocals – a wryness that really fits his words – and the quality and obscurity of the set serve as a great reminder of how much great talent was hitting the big labels in the 70s, but never got the exposure they were due. Titles include "Ready To Roll", "Distant Cannon Fire", "Rosarita", "Back On My Feet Again", "Starlight", and "Bluer Than You". CD

Waylon JenningsHonky Tonk Heroes ... LP
Fat Possum, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 15.99
Textbook 70s country badassery from Waylon Jennings! This is one of the most defining moments of the outlaw era, the record which pretty much drew a line in the sand between Waylon Jennings and the Nashville establishment. Billy Joe Shaver's pen and Waylon's authoritative voice marks this as one the strongest country albums of the era, if not ever, both in song quality and pure backbone. Greatness! Includes the barnstorming title track, "Old Five And Dimer (Like Me)", "Omaha", "You Asked Me To", "Ride Me Down Easy", "Black Rose", "We Had it All", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneMy Son The Jazz Drummer! ... LP
Contemporary, 1962. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the stranger examples of a very short-lived jazz trend – the "jazz meets folk" style that appeared on a handful of albums in the early 60s. This one features Shelly Manne exploring his Jewish heritage on a host of Israeli and Jewish folk tunes, played with a group that includes Shorty Rogers, Teddy Edwards, Victor Feldman, and Al Viola. The overall sound is pretty cool – as the tracks have an angular jaunty approach that lends itself well to Manne's dexterous drumming, and a lingering sadness that brings out a nice tone in Edwards' tenor. Titles include "Zamar Nodad", "Bokrei Lachish", "Orchah Bamidbar", "My Yiddishe Momme", and "Tzena". LP, Vinyl record album
