Wonderful stuff – a rare LP from the early 60's that has master reedman Jerome Richardson running through hip versions of hip tracks from hip (and not-so-hip) movies! Includes nice long versions of "Delilah" and "No Problem" (from Les Liasons Dangereuses), plus "Never ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with "ear" on one side. Cover has half split seams, otherwise in decent shape.)
One of the best Nino Rota scores for Fellini – and one that really recaptures all of the magic of the best early ones from the 60s! The orchestral passages are incredible – with a mix of strange instrumentation (vibes, organ, etc), and wonderfully spare arrangements. The other tracks ...

A really wild soundtrack to a really wild film – a movie set in pagan Rome, and one of the most offbeat Fellini films to ever hit the screen – which is quite a lot, given the director's other oeuvre! Nino Rota really steps up with his soundtrack here – and breaks the mold of his ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
40s soundtrack genius Miklos Rozsa makes a strange comeback here – recording in Rome for a 70s Sinbad film with special effects by Ray Harryhausen. The composer describes the recording as being in "his finest oriental mood" – which means that it's got lots of eastern themes ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

An unusual one from Dakota Staton – and almost a bit more bluesy than some of her Capitol sessions! Titles include "Supper Time", "I Stood By", "I Gotta Go", "Hurry Home", and "My Search Is Over". (Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album

A rare set of Billy Strayhorn tracks recorded in Paris by Alan Douglas. The tracks are incredibly haunting, and mostly feature Strayhorn's solo piano with spare backing by Parisian bassist Michel Goudret. There are a a few short moments on the record that add backing voices or strings – but ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Jacques Tati —
Playtime ... LP United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A wonderful selection of instrumental themes from the films of Jacques Tati – the closest thing to a full soundtrack you'll ever find for any of his movies! The package was originally issued upon the release of Play Time – and about half the music here is from that film – leaving ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stunner of an album from Cecil Taylor's early days – for many reasons, but also for the wild cover, which has a couple meeting in a dark alley in a cheesy photo shoot! (Just imagine if Hat Hut or Leo tried that today!) This long-out-of-print session features 3 early trio tracks – ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on King. Back cover has some very light aging – front cover looks great.)
A really dark little soundtrack – penned by Mikis Theodorakis for Jules Dassin's remake of the Phaedra myth! Some of the themes on here share the Greek stylings of Theodorakis' more popular soundtrack work – but there's also a lot more darker numbers – strung together in a ...

A fantastic score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one of his few 60s classics to get any sort of circulation in the US – and one of the best! The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

War ... LP United Artists, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process! The vibe here is hipper, and even more righteous than before – some of those great jazz currents on ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A tremendous live set from Randy Weston – and one of the best illustrations of the unique approach he brought to modern jazz at the end of the 50s! The set has Weston working in very Monk-like territory – not just musically, but at the legendary Five Spot Cafe, Monk's old stompin ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A late 70s family group soul effort – clearly cut in the style of the successful Sylvers, and following a similar blend of uptempo modes designed to help the sweet soul family approach move into the crossover dancefloor. The group's got 10 members (man, where did their parents ever find the ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The cover and the title are a great illustration of the growth of Bobby Womack on this classic 70s set – a mode of presentation that's maybe a bit more badass than before, without the down-home image of Bobby holding his guitar!
