Kenyon HopkinsHustler (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kapp/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... $21.99
A killer soundtrack from Kenyon Hopkins – a composer we can almost always trust to turn around a killer jazz score! The work is mostly in a jazz ensemble mode – and moves between swinging segments, and sadder ones – those beautifully blue passages that Hopkins did so well in the early 60s – full of emotion, but in a really subtle, mature sort of way that also marked a shift in American cinema too – quite a change from the overblown emotion of a decade before, both in the music and on screen. Players include Phil Woods, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Bodner on reeds, Joe Wilder on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Hank Jones on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – and titles include "Derby Time", "Dining Out", "Fast Buck", "Small Time Charlie", "The Loser", and "Minnesota Fats". CD features loads of previously unreleased bonus tracks – 20 more titles added to the original album! CD

Herman SteinIntruder (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Monstrous Movie Music, 1961. New Copy ... $12.99 19.95
Herman Stein might not be one of the heavyweights of Hollywood scoring, but he really knocks it out of the park for his music to The Intruder – a lively dramatic soundtrack with some nice currents of jazz in the mix! The Intruder score is somewhere in territory explored by folks like Elmer Bernstein and Kenyon Hopkins at the time – done in a mode of larger scene-setting orchestrations and some cooler jazzy instrumentation that creates a nice crime or JD sort of vibe – on titles that include "Klan", "Casualty", "More Guts", "Like Noise", "It's A Law", "Little Dope", and "Gun Play". CD also features more short tracks from the earlier film Career For Two, and a selection of Miscellaneous Pieces by Stein too! CD
(Limited edition of 3000.)

✨✧ Johnny ScottFragment (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Moscovitch (UK), 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Totally great soundtrack material from the great Johnny Scott – working here in more of the jazz mode in which he began his career, but already with an ear for some of the deeper, darker sides of the spectrum! The music's maybe a bit in the mode of some of the great Kenyon Hopkins soundtracks from the early 60s – jazz at the core, sometimes swinging, sometimes modern – performed by a small combo that features Scott on flute and alto, Duncan Lamont on tenor, Arthur Watts on bass, and Barry Morgan on drums and bongos – plus the great David Snell on harp, working here in his role as the Dorothy Ashby of the UK! Titles include "Night Of Love", "Ride In A Pontiac", "Waiting/Revelation", "Saved", and "Flashback". 7-inch, Vinyl record
