✨✧ Kenyon HopkinsHustler (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kapp/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Mel HenkeLa Dolce Henke ... CD
Warner/Scamp, 1962. Used ... $14.99
A wonderful bit of hipster tracks from the early 60s! Mel Henke was part Esquivel, part Pete Rugolo, part Ken Nordine, part Kenyon Hopkins – and one of the best, and most underrated of the late 50s/early 60s bachelor pad arrangers! This album's most likely his best – and it's a mad mix of tracks with a slinky jazzy sound. Some have strange narration, others have strange instrumentation, and nearly all of them have a wild cartoony sound that's just great. Listen for strange vocals from Beberly Ford, electric violin by Elliott Fisher, and lots of percussion by Larry Bunker and Milt Holland. titles include "The Lively Ones", "Let's Put Out The Lights", "Famer John", "All That Meat", and "Woman In Space".

Johnny ScottFragment (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Moscovitch (UK), 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99
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

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

✨✧ Creed Taylor OrchestraShock/Panic – Son Of Shock ... CD
ABC/Righteous (UK), 1958/1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of very unusual albums – back to back on a single CD! The set's a bit out of order – and actually starts with Panic, the sequel to Creed Taylor's previous album for ABC, and like that one, a very weird mix of jazzy backings, odd sound effects, and cool production techniques! The record begins with a familiar core – jazzy instrumentals, of the sort that Taylor was already producing for other artists, and would go on to do even more famously for Verve. But here, the music's really played with too – changed up in the middle of a song, as the rhythms get weird, sound effects come in, and the whole thing gets turned into a batch of spooky little scenes that more than live up to the title of the record – and the titles of the songs, which include "Alpine Honeymoon", "Wreck Of Old 97", "A Shot In The Dark", "The Fastest Gun", "No Smoking", "The Operation", and "The Prison Break". Shock is very cool work from Creed Taylor – material cut when he was still a bandleader, and hadn't yet evolved into the role of super-producer! The session's a long way from the CTI sound of the 70s – and instead has Creed playing some very spooky stuff – compositions by Kenyon Hopkins that have a horror sort of theme – dark little tunes that would be a perfect soundtrack for a haunted house! The core instrumentation is jazz-based, but augmented with some great other touches as well – and there's two female voices that scream, groan, and make other odd noises on the record from time to time. Titles include "The Long Walk", "Jungle Fever", "Heartbeat", "Haunted House", "In Bedlam", "Time Runs Out", and "The Secret". CD
