Henry ManciniMancini Country/Country Gentleman ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Riz Ortolani & Nino OlivieroMondo Cane ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the biggest-selling United Artists albums of the 60s – and one of its first big successes in the European soundtrack market! The score is for a strange documentary like film (the title means "World Gone To The Dogs"), and most of the tunes are dramatic – with a sweeping orchestral feel that has a few light instrumental moments. The big fame of this one is that it contains the theme that went onto become the 60s vocal standard "More" – but in this version, it's kind of submerged, and taken at a much slower pace. Titles include "Free Way", "Models In Blue", "Life Savers Girls", "The Last Flight", "Dog Heat", "Cargo Cult", and "Pergatory". LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneAmazing Nina Simone ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing is right – as Nina Simone is really taking off here – showing the world that she's way more than just another jazz singer – able to hit some righteous currents that would only explode even more in years to come! Nina's emotion is subtle, but extremely powerful – maybe not as bold as in her late 60s recordings, but already very much part of the performance – even on some of the more standard jazz tunes. Arrangements are by Bob Mersey, and titles include "Blue Prelude", "You've Been Gone Too Long", "Chilly Winds Don't Blow", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", and "That's Him Over There". CD

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was such a thing – one of the greatest hip hop producers alive, given carte blanche with the source beats of the century! Madlib's Blue Note crates are heavily weighed in the mid 60s through mid 70s electric beats that often get the shaft in mainstream jazz round-ups, but floor the beathead world into overdrive. Re-interpretations, remixes, and revisions are spliced seamlessly with the source samples, creating a whole new world where hip hop and late model live funk not only co-exists with classic Blue Note jazz, but it actually draws a linear transition between the 2 genius art forms. Beautiful stuff – if the album isn't the most original idea to come along all of these years into the hip hop & jazz underground, it's certainly one of the most perfectly realized projects of its kind, ever! It's one for the time capsule – easily one of Madlib's masterpieces, and pure funky sample wizardry by any standard! Includes Monk Higgins' "Slim's Return" interpreted by Ahmad Miller and DJ Lord Such on cuts, "Donald Byrd's "Distant Land", "Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Bounce", Yesterday's New Quintet's adaptation of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", Madlib Invazion's "Funky Blue Note", the Joe McDuphrey Experience take on Horace Silver's/Herbie Hancock's "Peace/Dolphin Dance" and lots more.

✨✧ Mike VickersDracula 1972 AD (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very cool soundtrack to this very cool Dracula film – one of the oddest in the Hammer Horror series, as it very firmly has the Count working in the wild world of 1972! There's a sexy vibe to the movie – as you might guess from the title – and that's definitely echoed in some of the soundtrack by the great Brit arranger Mike Vickers, who cut his teeth in the early days of Manfred Mann, and was moving onto some great larger projects by this time! Some numbers have a groovy approach that fits the time period, others are more standard orchestrations – but still always handled with all those great elements we love from Vickers. Titles include "Van Helsing Heads To The Club", "Devil's Circle Music", "Baptism By Blood", "Dracula Returns/Dracula Bites Laura", "Johnny Be Really Dead", and "Prologue/Hyde Park 1872".

Lauren Edson/Tobi Kaplan/Robin Ray/Laura SantiagoPacific Standard Time – Los Angeles Art 1945 to 1980 (hardcover) ... Book

A massive look at the Los Angeles art scene from the late 40s through the 70s – proof that New York wasn't the only art world to explode in the postwar years! The book is super-heavy, and does a great job of covering the decades – with images both of famous works that defined the LA scene, plus images of artists, museums, galleries, and other spaces. Each chapter features a range of different writers and experts – and there's some especially great sidebar passages, too. 330 pages, hardcover, oversize, and full of images in color, and black and white.

✨✧ Gil EvansPacific Standard Time ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blue Note 2-fer that brings together some of Gil Evans' great modernist jazz pieces for the World Pacific label. The material was all recorded in New York in 1958 and 1959, and the groups include crack jazz players like Steve Lacy, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Johnn Coles, Elvin Jones, and Evans himself. The tracks are mostly standards, but they're given super-sharp arrangements by Evans, in the style that he was using for some of his work with Miles Davis. They also feature prominent soloists, also as with the Miles work, and titles include "Chant Of The Weed", "Lester Leaps In", "Round Midnight", "Manteca", and "Sruttin With Some Barbeque". 2 LPs, with a good essay on Evans' work.

Dee Dee BridgewaterAfro Blue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Muzak (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all time – and one of the first true moments of genius from a young Dee Dee Bridgewater! The album's a Japanese only release (proof that they're always hipper to our jazz artists than we are!) – and it features Dee Dee singing material that's quite different than her later R&B-inflected sides from the late 70s – very soaring and spiritual work, delivered in a way that set a whole new standard for jazz at the time! Backing is by a small combo with brothers Ron and Cecil Bridgweater, plus Roland Hanna on acoustic and electric piano, George Mraz on bass, and Motohiko Hino on drums and percussion – but the star of the set is always Dee Dee, who sparkles beautifully on the album's classic versions of "Afro Blue" and "Little B's Poem" – both of which have been redone by many other singers over the years. Other great cuts include "People Make The World Go Round", "Love From The Sun", and "Love Vibrations". CD

✨✧ Bob DylanTriplicate (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99 22.98
Bob Dylan takes on the American songbook once again – revisiting the territory of classic 20th century songwriters that he touched on the Fallen Angels album, but in an overstuffed mode that definitely warrants the Triplicate title! The triple-length format really has Dylan going to town on the material – and maybe doing a lot more than just trying to ape an older singer like Frank Sinatra – as the arrangements are often surprisingly fresh, and almost hit the kind of country/standard mode that Willie Nelson hit with his Stardust recording. In fact, given the rasp and world-heavy tone of Dylan's voice, and the strong use of both acoustic and steel guitar on some of the tunes, the whole thing maybe feels more like a vision of midcentury, seen through a lens that gives the sound of Nashville a lot more importance in the canon. The set was recorded at the Capitol Studios, which seems a great place to capture this vibe – and titles include, not surprisingly, "Stardust", plus "This Nearly Was Mine", "Stormy Weather", "Once Upon A Time", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "As Time Goes By", "Imagination", "Day In Day Out", "There's A Flaw In My Flue", "These Foolish Things", and "You Go To My Head".

Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings/Knock On Wood/CBS Singles ... CD
CBS/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
Some of our favorite work ever from the mighty Georgie Fame – key tracks from his years on CBS – when he was really moving past straight jazz, into a whole great style of his own! First up is the full album Georgie Does His Thing With Strings – a set that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents! There's always a nice sense of warmth and wit going on – one that keeps these tunes from just being the usual sort of standard vocal fare of the period – and Mansfield's backings have a lean quality that often pulses with a very gentle groove at the bottom. Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". Next is the rare Knock On Wood EP – with four songs that include the title track, plus "Close The Door", "All I'm Asking", and "Didn't Want To Have To Do It". THEN – the CD adds in 21 more bonus tracks – almost all non-album single cuts by Fame from the late 60s and start of the 70s – most of which have never been reissued, and are a flurry of mad soul, clever vocals, and lots of hip instrumental twists – all delivered with that undeniable Georgie Fame charm. Titles include "Down Along The Cover", "Seventh Son", "No Thanks", "Try My World", "Bidin My Time", "For Your Pleasure", "Kentucky Child", "Peaceful", "Entertaining Mr Sloan", "Someday Man", and "The Movie Star Song".

✨✧ Eddie KendricksPeople Hold On ... CD
Tamla/Elemental (France), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A truly amazing album – unlike anything Eddie Kendricks ever did before, or since – and one of those records that really helped shape the sound of soul in the 70s! The music is as rich and powerful as the image on the cover – with some righteous undercurrents that really mark the time and place of the record, yet also help it transcend so many other standard soul modes of the period too! Arrangements are wonderfully complex – as you'll hear on the classic groovers "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" and "Date With The Rain" – each very different numbers, but both a showcase for Kendricks' wonderful vocal approach. Other titles include the progressive "People Hold On" – plus "I'm On The Sideline", "Day By Day", "If You Let Me", "Let Me Run Into Your Lonely Heart", and "Someday We'll Have A Better World". CD

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
Production Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99
A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes".

Christmas sounds, and a bit more too – an interesting collection of material recorded by Aretha Franklin in the early 60s for Columbia, and in the late 80s for Arista! There's definitely a fair bit of Holiday tunes on the set, but they're also mixed in with a few standards too – but these are done in a warmly jazzy style from the 60s, so that they fit right in with the sentiment of the Christmas songs – and round things out with a nice sense of variety. Titles include "Winter Wonderland", "Over The Rainbow", "Kissin By The Mistletoe", "The Christmas Song", "Accentuate The Positive", "God Bless The Child", "The Lord's Prayer", "Oh Happy Day", and "Joy To The World".

Rustblade (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
Spooky sounds from the maestro – an incredible collection of those otherworldly sounds that Ennio Morricone brought to his soundtracks during the golden years of his talents – that time when he could make so many amazing sonic steps from standard, familiar acoustic instrumentation! Morricone never needs too many tricks with electronics, or in terms of production – as he has a wonderful ear for an odd tuning, or unusual phrasing – which often means that a flute, violin, or piano can come across with a stunningly unique sort of sound! And while Morricone put these elements to play on his dreamier soundtracks, they really came to the forefront on his crime, action, and horror scoring – which is the focus here in a collection that really knocks it out of the park in terms of moody sounds. Titles include "Copkiller", "Il Trio Infernale", "Evaporazioni", "Orazione", "Passeggiata Notturna", "Assassinio Sul Lago", "Il Segreto", "Regalo Di Nozze", "L'Attentato", "Diario Di Un Pazzo", and "Breathlessly".

Dinah WashingtonDinah '62 ... LP
Roulette, 1962. Very Good ... $3.99
Fantastic work from Dinah Washington – a singer who's really hitting her stride here during her years for Roulette Records – with a vibe that's maybe her most mature, most sophisticated to date! Washington still has currents of her bluesy roots in her approach, but she's also moving into this boozy mode that's almost more human and heartfelt overall – a contrast to the brassy style of her earlier vocals, almost as if the world's challenges have brought her so much more learning, she's able to bring that experience to bear in her songs. The prime example of this is the excellent "Drinking Again" – one of Dinah's standards of the 60s, and a tune that's performed perfectly here – thanks to help from Fred Morman's orchestrations. But the whole album's equally great – and other tracks include "Miss You", "A Handful of Stars", "Destination Moon", "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You", and "Where Are You".

✨✧ Earl KlughSoda Fountain Shuffle/Life Stories/Solo Guitar ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Three albums from the late 80s – all of which show Earl Klugh still going strong, and very much at the top of his game! Soda Fountain Shuffle is a set that's got plenty of electric elements in the rhythms, mixed with lots of acoustic interplay from Earl over the top! Klugh's touch on the strings has only gotten better over the years, and he dances magically amidst some light rhythms and keyboard lines – warming things up a lot more than on similar fusion albums by some of his contemporaries, with that classic Klugh touch that's made him a lasting favorite over the decades! Titles include "Baby Cakes", "Incognito", "One Night", "April Love", "Close To Your Heart"," Just Pretend", and "Rainbow Man". Life Stories is a huge one from the mighty Earl Klugh – and the kind of record that reminded the world that he was still one of the most unique fusion talents around! Earl's got this perfect way of blending acoustic and electric elements with effortless ease – his own soft string solos and warmer R&B charts – all laid out with this sound that's beyond compare, and which may even work better here than on some of Klugh's records from a few years before. Most tracks are originals – although the album does include a great cover of the Isleys' "For The Love Of You" – alongside titles that include "Return Of The Rainmaker", "The Traveler", "Just For Your Love", "Second Chances", "Debra Anne", and "Santiago Sunset". Solo Guitar is beautiful work from the great Earl Klugh, and a set that's exactly what's promised in the title – a solo guitar outing that shows an entirely new side of Earl's many talents! Klugh's acoustic playing on other albums was always great – but here, it really comes to the forefront, with a sound that's rich enough to sum up so many different modes of guitar expression at once – from gypsy swing phrasing, to Spanish flourishes, to some straighter jazz swing – but always with that warmth that's made Earl way more than just another fusion artist on his instrument. Most tracks are standards, done in nicely personal versions – and titles include "Emily", "Once Upon A Summertime", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "So Many Stars", "Love Is Here To Stay", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

But the whole album's equally great – and other tracks include "Miss You", "A Handful of Stars", "Destination Moon", "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You", and "Where Are You". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Me & My Gin", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", "Make Believe Dreams", and "Something's Gotta Give". CD

✨✧ VariousSuper Breaks – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... CD
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a typical collection of rare funk and soul – as the selections here not only meet the stunningly high standards of the BGP label – but they've also been sampled in more recent years for hip hop records and other contemporary recordings! Essentially, you've got the best of both worlds – vintage funk from the late 60s and early 70s – brought together in a great collection – and work that's gone onto form the blueprint for contemporary urban sounds as well – which means you'll probably recognize some or part of most of these songs from their use in more contemporary recordings. Nearly every cut's been sampled at least more than once – and titles include "Blind Alley" by The Emotions, "Chick A Boom" by Pazant Brothers, "Eva" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Bouncy Lady" by Pleasure, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Take Yo Praise" by Camille Yarbrough, "Thinking Single" by The Counts, "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson, "Ike's Mood" by Isaac Hayes, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene.

✨✧ Miles DavisAgharta (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $79.99
A seminal 70s side from Miles Davis – originally a Japanese recording, and one that returns to the solid push of the initial electric years! The record's a completely cooking little session – one that mixes the raw, noisier styles of other Davis albums with a focus, funked-up energy that's really set loose in the freer standards of the Japanese scene – all to come up with a sound that's completely otherworldly, and which is light years ahead of most mainstream fusion from the period. Pete Cosey plays some really wicked guitar and synthesizer, Al Foster kicks tremendous energy on his drums, Sonny Fortune brings a soulful depth on soprano sax and flute, and Michael Henderson creates massive flow on the bass. Titles include "Prelude", "Interlude", and a long version of "Theme From Jack Johnson". LP, Vinyl record album

Beverly KenneyLonely & Blue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1952. New Copy ... $22.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by vocalist Beverly Kenny – early 50s sides done before her rise to fame on Roost and Decca, and a much-needed addition to her too-short career! The tracks were originally part of transcription discs done for radio stations, and they've got a surprisingly full, professional feel – not like the quieter material showcased on SSJ's other Kenny collection, Snuggled On Your Shoulder – but recorded with jazzzy backings from arranger Eddie Safranski! The lineup includes tenor, alto, baritone, and trumpet – plus piano by either Dick Hyman and Moe Wexler, and guitar from Mundell Lowe – all to perfectly set the blue mood that Beverly's going for with her vocals. Many of the tracks here are nicely less familiar, and not overdone standards – and titles include "That Pyramid Jazz", "Long Lean & Lanky", "It's A Mean Old World", "Too Bad", "The Stars The Night The Moon", "Yours Sincerely", and "Let's Try It Again".

Steve KuhnWatch What Happens ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
A bold brilliant statement from pianist Steve Kuhn – his next great record after the seminal Three Waves, and a record that pushes the envelope even further! From the title, you might think that Kuhn's playing some familiar 60s standards for MPS – but he's really working strongly in his own agenda here, stepping forward in strong new voice he was bringing to piano at the time, and even going a bit more outside than ever before. The trio includes Palle Danielsson on bass and Jon Christensen on drums – and although familiar, some of the titles have a sense of freedom that really transforms them. Titles include Burt Bacharach's great "Windows On The World", Michel Legrand's "Watch What Happens", Gary McFarland's "Once We Loved", Carla Bley's "Ad Infinitum", and Kuhn's own "Silver". CD

Sue RaneyHappiness Is A Warm Sue Raney ... LP
Philips, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
A groovy batch of 60s vocals – a bit jazz, but with more of that "swinger" kind of sound that you'd find in an Ann Margaret movie from the time! Ralph Carmichael did the arrangements, and he comes up with a lightly jazzy style that fits Sue's voice very well. The tracks are quite fresh, too – with none of the sleepy standards that could mar a set like this. Titles include "Be Warm", "Beautiful Friendship", "My Future Just Passed", "I'm Painting The Town Red", "The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise", and "Lorna's Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Ilene WoodsIt's Late ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing late nite vocals from Ilene Woods – a singer we only know from this classic album on Jubilee! The record's that great sort that hardly ever got made much in later years – one of those dreamy late 50s sessions that floats along with effortless ease – pillowy backdrops from Bill Clifton, and light vocals from Ilene that sparkle with a sort of magic that's wonderful – never too over-emotive, never too blue-tinged – just in the right mode for the melancholy mood of the songs. Tunes are a nice mix of unusual numbers and lesser-known standards – and include "It's Late", "If I Love Again", "It's A Blue World", "Everytime", "While We're Young", "You're Blase", and "If You Were Mine".

Domino, 2010. Used ... $6.99
A mix of originals and reinterpreted standards from the great Robert Wyatt – co-credited to violin and viola player Ros Stephen and clarinetist, sax and accordion player Gilad Atzmon. It's beautiful throughout, be it emotionally bruised, yet still quite elegant takes jazz and pop, or originals that blend lush instrumentation with oddball experimentalism. Includes "Laura", ""Lullaby For Irena", "The Ghosts Within", "Where Are They Now", "Maryan", "Lush Life", "In A Sentimental Mood", "At Last I Am Free", "What A Wonderful World" and more. CD

Riverside/OJC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The session's billed as "very personal treatments of great standards" – and it's a great twist on familiar material, all given the Thelonius touch! There's less of Monk's creative composition and angular group arrangements going on here – and instead, the album's almost a rewriting of 40 years of popular compositions, all taken into the modern world of Monk's piano. The group's a trio, with Oscar Pettiford on bass and Art Blakey on drums – and titles include nicely reworked versions of "Just You Just Me", "Memories Of You", "Liza", "Darn That Dream", and "Tea For Two".

✨✧ George WallingtonKnight Music ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last sessions we can ever find by this legendary bop pianist – and one in which he plays a nice set of originals and standards, in a trio with Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums. The tracks are short, with less of a full-on bop approach than some of Wallington's earlier records – but this also allows him to break out a bit more, and display his increasingly complex solo style. Titles include "World Weary", "Billie's Tune", "Godchild", "Serendipity", and "Up Jumped The Devil". CD
