Kenyon HopkinsBaby Doll ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Kenyon Hopkins at his finest – informed by jazz, but scored with a bit more seriousness overall – in that late 50s style that oozes social consciousness from the very first note! The score's a lot more put together, and somewhat more restrained than the film – almost a jazz score in itself, but with fuller orchestrations overall, conducted by Ray Heindorf. Smiley Lewis plays a bit of piano on the set, and titles include "Fire & Baby Doll", "Doctor & Archie", "Baby Doll's Fright", "Ghosts", and "The Confession". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Kenyon HopkinsVerve Sound Tour – Spain ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Part of a great series that was released in conjunction with Esquire Magazine. The album's a nice split gatefold package filled with a book chock full of photos, with cool travel notes. The disc combines sound effects and music (we think by Kenyon Hopkins), to create the effect of an audio tour for the armchair traveller! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes book. Cover has a cutout hole.)

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

Quincy JonesMackenna's Gold/In Cold Blood ... CD
Intrada, Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of Quincy Jones soundtracks – both quite different, but working well together here in a single package! First up is Mackenna's Gold – a western soundtrack – but one that's groovier than you might expect, given that the music was done by Quincy Jones with some vocals by Jose Feliciano! The general style is strings and western themes, but Quincy manages to put a bit of bounce at the bottom – using an electric bass in a syncopated style that's quite different from your average western score, and which gives a couple of tracks a nice gliding easy feel that sounds like some of Mancini's best in the early 70s. Jose sings the tune "Ole Turkey Buzzard" in both English and Spanish – and the tune itself is a pretty nice little number! Other tracks include "Soul Full Of Gold", "Waterhole Trek", "Massacre Montage", and "Apache Camp". Next up is In Cold Blood – and there's some pretty great moments in Quincy Jones' original score to the film version of Truman Capote's chilling book – most of them in a darkly tinged crime jazz mode, with flowing, complicated orchestrations that are mixed with breakout solos, and some very strangely arranged instrumental elements – almost more in some of the territory of Kenyon Hopkins, and some of his more dramatic jazz scores of the 60s! Titles include "In Cold Blood", "Seduction", "Down Clutter's Lane", "Murder Scene", "The Corner", "Lonely Bottles", and "No Witnesses". CD

✨✧ Herman SteinIntruder (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Monstrous Movie Music, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Out of print.)
