Brian BennettDrama Montage Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Hard-driving work from UK sound library hero Brian Bennett – an artist who gave us so much great funky work at the start of the 70s, and who's still going strong here at the other end of the decade! Both records are mighty nice – a mixture of familiar funk with some deeper tones that are equally compelling – almost with the full flourish of a film soundtrack in scope,a nd with a good focus on some of the strongest standout numbers, which are occasionally presented with a bit of variation. Instrumentation is a mix of keyboards, guitar, horns, and some great low-end elements – and the package features both albums, with titles that include "Eye Opener", "Girl Alone", "Pussy Foot", "In Danger", "Routine Check", "Villain", "Hip Joint", "Psychopath", "Thrash", and "Heavy Traffic".

Jimmy CastorDimension III ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
Three-dimensional magic from the great Jimmy Castor – an artist who'd already conquered the worlds of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Latin by the time of this release! Jimmy draws on all his rich background in the soul underground, and also seems to move with a new sort of sophistication, too – not in a way that's slick or commercial, but which shows Jimmy only deepening his ideas in the era of Marvin Gaye and Isaac Hayes – going for some bigger arrangements and ambitious production, while still staying true to his groovy self! There's a vibe to the record that almost reminds us of some of the creative productions that Harvey Fuqua was doing for RCA at the same time – with New Birth and The Nite-Liters – and Jimmy's maestro seems to be Gerald Thomas, who knows how to spin just the right mood for each different track. There's even a few instrumentals, which showcase Castor's great skills on tenor – ala Stanley Turrentine in a similar mode – and tracks include "How Beautiful You Are", "Helpless", "I'm Not A Child Anymore", "The Lone Ranger", "Revelation", "Whiter Shade of Pale", and the tasty "The Last Ole", which is sort of a rumbling sinister slow funk track.

Alice Coltrane & Carlos SantanaIlluminations ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A really mindblowing collaboration between two of the most spiritual mainstream musicians of the early 70s – legendary guitarist Carlos Santana and spiritual jazz guru Alice Coltrane! The set came at a time when Santana was reaching for much deeper ideas in both his music and his personal life – and Coltrane turned out to be a perfect creative fit, as she'd already been down the path with her own music for years – and helps Carlos here find an incredible setting that really lets his new vision take flight! The album's a very collaborative effort – with Alice on piano, organ, and harp – but Coltrane also brings in some fuller arrangements on half of the tracks – really opening things up, alongside other musicians who include Jack DeJohnette on drums, Dave Holland on bass, Jules Broussard on soprano sax and flute, and Tom Coster on both acoustic and electric piano. The strings are sublime – as heavenly as on Alice's own records – and titles include "Angel Of Air Angel Of Water", "Bliss The Eternal Now", "Angel Of Sunlight", "Illuminations", and "Guru Sri Chinmoy Aphorism".

Ray ConniffLaughter In The Rain/Love Will Keep Us Together ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $18.99
Two later albums from Ray Conniff – an easy listening maestro who might have been past his hit-selling days, but could also sound even groovier than before! Laughter In The Rain is a great 70s take on easy modes from the decade before – as familiar Conniff chorus parts and compressed orchestrations are matched with some sweet keyboards at all the right places – gentle Fender Rhodes that comes into some of the best tracks on the album, and enhances their warm mellow currents. A few moments even have a hint of funk – that sweet Rhodes element that can make so much music sound so great – and titles include versions of "Angie Baby", "Laughter In The Rain", "Mandy", "Seasons In The Sun", "Eres Tue", "Having My Baby", and "Feel Like Makin Love". Love Will Keep Us Together has Ray Conniff really stretching out in the slinky, sexy modes of the 70s – bringing in a bit of warm electric piano to his orchestrations and chorus – as he serves up his own great takes of some of the popular cuts from the first half of the decade! Titles include "My Little Friend", "Rhinestone Cowboy/Wildfire", "Please Mr Please", "Midnight Blue", "At Seventeen", and "Love Will Keep Us Together/How Sweet It Is". CD

Floyd CramerFloyd Cramer With The Music City Pops/Floyd Cramer In Concert ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Floyd Cramer's known as a studio genius who's especially great in an intimate setting – but here are two albums that feature the legendary pianist in very different modes! First up is Floyd Cramer With The Music City Pops – a set that has Floyd's piano in front of the Nashville orchestra – who soar and glide along in these ways that are maybe even more upbeat than some of Cramer's usual material – even though the lineup features lots of strings and woodwinds! The set was still recorded in the studio, and Floyd's piano lines are nice and clean, and very much in the lead – on tracks that include "Fancy Free", "Let It Be", "Is This Tomorrow", "I Saw The Light", "Makin Up", and "The End Of The World". Floyd Cramer In Concert is a compelling live album – with Floyd playing in front of an audience, but still recorded in all the best up-close modes of his other records! The event is an odd one – the Ninth Grade Banquet at Neely's Bend Junior High – but Cramer's a consummate pro throughout, and plays as if he's trying to serenade a much larger audience in an amphitheater. Titles include "Let Me Be There", "On The Rebound", "Forever", "Flip Flop & Bop", "The Way We Were", and a "Hank Williams Medley". CD

Ray Davies & The Button Down BrassThemes From The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting, & Other Great Films/Flashpoint ... CD
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $18.99
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD

✨✧ Martin DennyLatin Village/Versatile Martin Denny ... CD
Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1963/1964. Used ... $14.99
A great illustration of the way that Martin Denny expanded his groove in the 60s – on some sweetly inventive records like this! On Latin Village, Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of electric bass echoing out at the bottom of some cuts, more echo than usual on the piano lines, and a floating quality that's almost even more sublime than the original Liberty sessions. But the core Denny elements are also still in place – tinkling piano, island percussion, and a playful approach to familiar rhythms that never fails to please. The Latin is more of a nod to harder Latin modes than anything else, but it does make for a nice, if subtle change – one that works especially well when Denny's piano is out front, but compressed a bit in the mix. Titles include "Flying Down To Rio", "Ho Ba La La", "Something Latin", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Latin Village". The Versatile Martin Denny definitely lives up to the versatile in the title – working through a whole host of different 50s and 60s easy tunes – played in ways that are much wider-ranging than usual! Some are percussive and slightly exotic, some have more strings and tinkling piano, and some get slightly playful instrumentation – in a very nice way. Titles include "Little Bird", "Theme From Mondo Cane", "Exotique Bossa Nova", "Quiet Village Bossa Nova", and "Strawberry Tree". CD

✨✧ Martin DennyTaste Of Honey/Another Taste Of Honey ... CD
Liberty/Vocalion (UK), 1962/1964. Used ... $14.99
Back to back gems from Martin Denny – two albums on a single CD! Taste Of Honey is a great later moment from Martin Denny – a set that gave him a big 60s hit in a sweet version of "Taste of Honey"! Denny approaches the tune with all the great mellow moods that Bobby Scott intended – none of the too-fast styles of Hirt, and instead the slow-moving rhythms that work perfectly for the blue undercurrents on the piano. Other tunes follow in a similarly nice blend – still a bit exotic, but almost showing more of a vibes/piano/percussion mix that seems to be borrowed from George Shearing or Cal Tjader – one that we approve of highly! Titles include "Route 66", "Exodus", "I'm In A Dancing Mood", "Black Orchid", "Take Five", and "Taste Of Honey". The second albums is a sweet follow up to Martin Denny's Taste Of Honey album – one that's got a great blend of piano, vibes, and percussion – all used in a way that's almost more jazz-like than some of Denny's earlier work! The formula works great to transform a host of 50s and 60s tunes – and titles include "Volare", "Cool", "Bijou", "Harlem Nocturne", "Satin Doll", "Anniversary Song", "Like Young", "Blue Carousel", and "Theme From The Manchurian Candidate".

Percy FaithClair/Joy ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $16.99
70s magic from Percy Faith – two albums presented here in their quadrophonic mixes! Clair is a really wonderful album from Percy Faith – part of a handful of sweet 70s sides that really had him sounding a lot more groovy than before! The album almost has a 70s soundtrack vibe at times – with a mix of electric elements amidst the fuller orchestrations – all in a nicely compressed way that's handled with the sort of production that must have made a record like this a real treat for the quadrophonic generation! There's a bit of vocals at times – mostly wordless – and the tunes themselves really shape the grooviness of the album – with titles that include "Clair", "Ben", "Sweet Surrender", "2001", "I Can See Clearly Now", "Summer Breeze", and "Superfly". Joy has the Percy Faith sound opening up in warm, mature modes for the 70s – still a fair bit of strings, but also maybe more of that careful couching of sound that could make 70s easy listening so different from the sound of a decade before! Some of the tunes here are a nice surprise – and include pop and soundtrack numbers that further take Percy into fresh territory – titles that include "Shaft", "This Way Mary", "Without You", "Diamonds Are Forever", "The Summer Knows", "An Old Fashioned Love Song", and "Gypsies Tramps & Thieves".

Benny GolsonKiller Joe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic album from tenor legend Benny Golson – one in which he reinvents his sound for the 70s, but still keeps all the tight sense of arrangement we loved in his earlier work! Benny's going for a funky jazz groove on most cuts – a bit clubby, in a Kudu Records mode – with a fair bit of tracks recorded at Sigma Sound in Philly, some with a female chorus adding in vocal lines from time to time. But this approach isn't clunky or commercial, and actually works a lot better than so many other tenorists who tried this mode at the time – thanks both to Benny's sense of arrangement, which graces most tracks – and his way of hitting a solid, soulful solo that really fills out the tunes from the middle. The album is worth it alone for its sweet remake of "Killer Joe" – the tune he first made famous with the Jazztet, recut here with a nice 70s vibe! The cut begins with Benny doing a cool monologue at the beginning, then hitting the "New Killer Joe" groove – and other cuts include "Tomorrow Paradise", "Walkin & Stalkin", "Love Uprising", and "Timbale Rock". CD features some bonus tracks – including "I'm Always Dancin To The Music (orig 12" single)", "Walkin & Stalkin", and "The New Killer Joe" – in a version with Mortonette Jenkins on vocals. CD

Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Sophisticated sounds, indeed – pulled from a time when the British sound library scene was really moving to the next level – and finding a strong identity that was all their own! There's plenty of sound library funk in the mix here, but there's also some deeper sophistication too – a shift that's almost like the change that CTI brought to jazz funk in the 70s – collected from some of the best Bruton Music library albums of the late 70s! Keyboard lines abound, and the horn passages are pretty darn great too – often cool and compressed, and soaring out nicely with the music. Composers include Keith Mansfield, Steve Gray, Robert Folk, Johnny Pearson, David Lindup, and others – and titles include "Night Games", "Sunshine Drive", "Hazy Days", "Golden Groove", "Flying Bird", "Vacation", "Honeymoon", "Early Riser", "Billowing Sails", "Chique", and "Voulez Vous".

Joe HarriottMovement/High Spirits ... CD
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Overlooked gems from this key reedman on the Brit modern scene of the 60s – two rare albums in a single package! First up is Movement – one of the most obscure albums recorded by Joe Harriott – leading light of the British avant scene in the 60s – and one of the best, too! The album features Harriott working with a quintet that includes Shake Keane on trumpet, Pat Smythe on piano, Bobby Orr on drums, and Coleridge Goode on bass – playing in territory that's somewhat in the neighborhood of his Abstract and Free Form albums, but also a bit more inside, with more of a focus on swinging, hard-hitting jazz. The rhythms are often quite tight and soulful, and although the album's touched with lots of angular moments – both in the solos and backings – the overall sound is wonderfully grooving and tremendously captivating! The album's got that perfect blend of modern, modal, and soul that make the best Brit jazz albums from the mid 60s so wonderful – and the set list includes original tunes such as "Movement", "Spaces", "Blues On Blues", "Revival", "Beams", and "Count Twelve". High Spirits is pretty unique – a set of takes on tunes that come from a musical show, but recast strongly as soulful sides for the Harriott combo! Pianist Pat Smythe re-arranged all tracks in the set – and really gives them a new sort of energy – opening them up for lots of solo work on his own piano, plus alto from Harriott, and some beautiful trumpet lines from the great Shake Keane – a player who always sounds great next to Joe. The rest of the group features Coleridge Goode on bass and Bobby Orr on drums – and titles include "Home Sweet Heaven", "Something Tells Me", "Go Into Your Trance", "I Know Your Heart", and "Was She Prettier Than I".

Joe Harriott/Amancio D'Silva QuartetHum Dono ... CD
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by British alto genius Joe Harriott – a very unusual record that has him working with guitarist Amanico D'Silva, in a style that's got some wonderful modal undertones! The feel here is a bit like Harriott's work with Michael Garrick – minus piano, of course – as he and D'Silva work through some tunes that are long, filled with complicated rhythms, yet still have a magically dancing sound. The mood shifts a bit from track to track – as Norma Winstone comes in for wordless vocals on two numbers, and Ian Carr blows a bit on one tune – and there's one short track on the record that only features Harriott's alto next to a bit of drums. Great stuff all around – with titles that include "NNNT", "Hum Donon", "Jaipur", "Stephano's Dance", and "Ballad For Goa". CD

Main IngredientEuphrates River ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
A great, far-reaching album from Main Ingredient – a group best known for their early 70s singles, but come up with a wonderfully complex batch of tunes for this album from 1974! The set shows the group taking some cues from some of the hipper contemporaries of the time, and pushing past a stock hit formula in the best possible way. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but the group produced themselves, giving the record a sexy funky feeling in the best parts, not that dissimilar from some of Marvin Gaye's work, or records by groups like The Isley Brothers or The O'Jays. Includes great versions of two Seals & Crofts songs – "Summer Breeze" and "Euphrates" – both a perfect example of this style, as is "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend" – plus a great reading of Willie Hutch's "California My Way", which has a super-dope sample at the beginning. Of course, the album still includes material like their hit "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely", a sweetly style AM radio pop hit in the band's best style of earlier years! CD

Henry ManciniReturn Of The Pink Panther/Symphonic Soul ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Two cool Henry Mancini album – one soundtrack, and one sweet set of instrumentals! Return Of The Pink Panther is a surprisingly groovy record – and one that's very different from the original Pink Panther soundtrack! This one's got much more of a 70s electric feel – and show's Henry Mancini's growth in this format, along the lines of his Cop Show Themes album, or his excellent Thief Who Came To Dinner soundtrack! There's a lot of Fender Rhodes on the record – especially on the tracks "The Orange Float", "Disco", "Navel Maneuver", and the slyly funky "Here's Looking At You, Kid". There's also an excellent remake of the original Pink Panther theme – much better than the original, with a nice jazzy chase quality! Symphonic Soul is one of Henry Mancini's grooviest LPs from the 70s – a mixture of tight large arrangements with a smooth funky edge, similar to some of his best soundtrack work at the time! The rhythm section is great – with Harvey Mason on drums and Joe Sample on keyboards, and guitar by David T Walker and Dennis Budimir – and the album also features some cool solos on instruments like African finger piano and piccolo trumpet. The whole thing bounces along with a majestic approach that's very full and complicated – yet also tight and funky! Lots of nice groovy tunes – and titles include "Sun Goddess", "Symphonic Soul", "Soul Saga", "African Symphony", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Satin Soul". CD

Two early 70s gems from French easy maestro Paul Mauriat – both from a time when he was at the height of his powers! Penelope has a sexy lady on the front cover, and a sound that definitely matches that mood too – although Mauriat also manages to bring up some funky strings at a few points too – maybe giving the music more of a special sort of soundtrack mix than some of his earlier records! The sound is bright, but never too polished – and titles include "Penelope", "Melancholy Man", "La Bikina", "Et Mourir De Plaisir", "Reviens Je T'Aime", and "Etude In The Form Of Rhythm & Blues". Holidays is a sweet set that serves up easy instrumental versions of European and American pop hits from the late 60s and early 70s – all done with that spacious blend of strings, piano, and electric bottom bass that always made Paul Mauriat one of the sexier, slinkier easy listening artists of his time! Titles include "Jesus Cristo", "Holidays", "La Chanson Pour Anna", "Mother Of Mine", "Here's To You", "Speak Softly Love", and "Apres Toi". CD

Mosaic, Late 30s/1940s. New Copy 8 CDs ... $135.99 136.00
An incredible document of one of the greatest pairings in jazz – the groundbreaking tenor sax of Lester Young, and the legendary orchestra of Count Basie! The Young/Basie pairing is the stuff of history books, and has certainly been showcased on other releases – but never in this much detail, or with this much attention to both the sound and discographical information – as the 8CD package pulls together tracks from labels that include Decca, Aladdin, Brunswick, Commodore, Emarcy, Keynote, Mercury, Victor, Vocalion, and a few other imprints – spanning over a decade of recording, with a total of 173 tracks in all! Young's horn is amazing – birthed in swing, but given a sense of soul that would shape countless generations to come – a huge influence on young boppers of the Stan Getz generation, but also a real guide to some of the soul jazz musicians of the 60s, and new traditionalists of later generations too. Some sides here are small groups, many more large ensembles with Basie as the leader – plus a few cuts with Benny Goodman, the Kansas City Six, Teddy Wilson, Sam Price, and Dicky Wells – all numbers that might just feature Young but not Basie. There's even a few with singer Una Mae Carlisle, and a few other tracks feature vocals – although the bulk of the work is instrumental. Wonderful throughout – and a great example of how great the Mosaic presentation can be for music of the 78rpm generation! CD

The complete Vocalion and Okeh Records 78s of the great Bukka White – a blues singer who was maybe a few years later than some of the first big stars from the Mississippi scene – but who's gone onto have a legacy and impact that will last for years to come! Bukka's got a very strong touch on the guitar – a rhythmic strumming that feels like it's going to tear the instrument apart, and which carves out a rough groove for the songs – which only get even better once he opens up with his unusual sense of vocal inflection! The package was created at a time when Bukka White was enjoying a huge revival of interest, and is still one of the best representations of his work – with titles that include "Pinebluff Arkansas", "Sleepy Man Blues", "Parchman Farm Blues", "When Can I Change My Clothes", "Black Train Blues", "Good Gin Blues", "Fixin To Die", "Bukka's Jitterbug Swing", "District Attorney Blues", and "Special Streamline".
