✨✧ Ju-Par Universal OrchestraMoods & Grooves ... LP
Ju-Par, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of THE indie soul treasures of the 70s – a wickedly funky record that blends together jazz, soul, and club – and which stands out with a sound that's all its own! You may well know the tag "moods and grooves" – as the record's had an influence on countless scenes, and has been referenced by many artists over the years. But nothing beats this original set, a sublime batch of electric grooves performed by a core combo of electric keys, bass, and congas – augmented by sweetened strings and some occasional chorus vocals – bad-stepping around the grooves in a mostly-instrumental mode that rivals (if not betters) some of the best funky soundtrack work of the decade! Titles include "Time", "Chicago Calypso", "Funky Music", "Flute Salad", and "Gotta Get-A-Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan A Paris (aka Vaughan & Violins) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (France), 1958. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
A really rich album by Sarah Vaughan – recorded in Paris in 1958, with orchestrations by Quincy Jones – and large group backing that includes some great tenor work by Zoot Sims! The session's one of Vaughan's most cohesive albums of the period, and although it's got "violins" in the title, it's not too drippy or sleepy, thanks to Quincy – who keeps the whole thing moving along nicely, with just the right amount of swing and soul to work perfectly with Vaughan's vocals! Titles include "Live For Love", "Please Be Kind", "I'll Close My Eyes", "That's All", "Day By Day", "The Thrill Is Gone", and "Love Me". CD also features 4 more bonus tracks – alternate takes of tunes on the album! CD

Serge Gainsbourg & Jane BirkinJane Birkin – Serge Gainsbourg (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $31.99
A landmark collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin – his paramour at the time, and a much younger woman! The pair come together beautifully here in a set of sensuous duets – tunes that have an open, honest approach to the relations between the sexes – yet never in any sort of cliched late 60s hippie-esque ways. This album is perhaps the archetypal Gainsbourg erotic effort – and it's filled with wonderful duets set to breathy, bouncy orchestrations – tunes that forged a whole new "adult" level in pop music – not just in France, but around the globe! The arrangements are amazing, and feature some of the weirdest instrumentation ever heard on a pop record – especially one that was as successful as this. Backings are by Athur Greenslade – and titles include the classic "69 Annee Erotique" and "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus", plus "Jane B", "Elisa", "Orang Outan", "Les Sucettes", and "Manon". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
