Johnny MandelHarper ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $19.99
A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character! The vibe here is almost more 60s Quincy Jones than anything else – with sublime orchestrations from Dick Hazard, Bill Holman, and Billy Byers – which all have this great balance between swinging ensemble passages and standout solo instruments, including a sweet bit of Hammond. The record features two vocal tracks – "As Sure As You're Born" with lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman, and vocals by Sam Fletcher – "Quietly There", by Morgan Ames with vocals by Ruth Price – and instrumental titles include "Magnus Cum Louder", "Harper", "Harper's Ferry", "Mexican Breakfast", and "Bel Air". Also features the vocal track "Livin Alone" – written by Andre Previn, with lyrics by Dory Previn. LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed mono pressing! Shrinkwrap has a sticker remnant.)

✨✧ Joe GordonLookin' Good! ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible session of hardbop from early 60s LA – easily one of the hippest and hardest-hitting albums ever recorded for Contemporary Records! Joe Gordon passed away early in 1963, and this album's one of a rare few he made as a leader – but even if it was the only one, it might well be enough – because the trumpeter steps out here with an intensity and sense of imagination that easily matches the best sounds of Lee Morgan or Ted Curson during the time, often with the similar mix of modernism and grooving as the latter! The session's a quintet one – and is equally noteworthy for the presence of alto saxophonist Jimmy Woods – heard here in a mode that's a bit more straightforward than some of his own few albums, but in a way that really sets a nice edge to the whole set. Rhythm is from the trio of Dick Whittington on piano, Milt Turner on drums, and the great Jimmy Bond on bass – and they all work with the kind of complicated twists and turns you might expect from some of Blue Note's best rhythm combos of the time. Titles include "Terra Firma Irma", "Song For Richard", "Diminishing", and "Heleen" – all original tunes! CD
