Don PeakePeople Under The Stairs (180 gram colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Terror Vision, 1991. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Don Peake did a great job for the music on this 1991 Wes Craven thriller – mixing all sorts of keyboard elements with a larger selection of sounds – all served up on short little tracks that really create a spooky sort of magic as the album unfolds! Some tunes are twenty seconds long, others over two minutes in length – and together, the mix of light strings, keyboards, and drum machine elements has all the dynamic thrills of watching some slasher film on VHS in the wee hours of the morning! Titles include "Cellar Friends", "The Roof", "Go To Hell", "You Hurt Your Mother", "Brother & Sister", "Gutting Leroy", "Cold Coin", "The Basement", and "Metro Gas Co". LP has a few bonus tracks – original audition recordings! LP, Vinyl record album

Teresa Brewer with Count Basie & Duke EllingtonSongs Of Bessie Smith/It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Boplicity (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of later jazzy vocal LP gems by Teresa Brewer, both backed by jazz greats – Songs Of Bessie Smith with Count Basie and Thad Jones, and It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing with Duke Ellington – both released by Flying Dutchman in 1973! Teresa's popularity peaked a couple decades earlier as a girlish pop singer, and she succeeds strongly on both records – not just because of the jazz heavies in the band, but because she has the pipes and genuine affection for the material to pull it off. It's lovely stuff! Songs Of Bessie Smith have the bluesy overtones necessary to make it work, without trying the hide Teresa's naturally softer approach. Basie on piano throughout, with arrangements by Jones, and a great big band on half and more intimate arrangements on the other half. It Don't Mean A Thing. . .works just as wel, with Duke Ellington and Ernie Wilkins arrangements, and great Flying Dutchman players that include Bernard Purdie, Joe Beck and Mtume. 20 tracks in all, including "Trombone Cholly", "Gmme A Pigfoot", "I Ain't Got Nobody", "St Louis Blues", "I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues", "Mood Indigo", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "I've Got To Be A Rug Cutter", "Tulip Or Turnip", "I'ts Kinda Lonesome Out Tonight" and more.

✨✧ Jack MontroseJack Montrose Sextet ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful example of why the west coast scene was great when it was working at its finest – that perfect blend of group formation and individual identity that could make a record like this so great! Tenor player Jack Montrose cut a rare few albums in the 50s, but this one's a gem – done with help from frequent partner Bob Gordon on baritone sax, and with other players that include Conte Candoli on trumpet, Paul Moer on piano, Joe Mondragon on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – a well-matched group that definitely knows how to follow the course, and break off in individual directions when needed. The style is tightly arranged, but not too tightly that the band doesn't have room to swing – and the mix of Montrose's tenor and Gordon's baritone is sublime together! Titles include "Listen Hear", "Some Good Fun Blues", "Fools Rush In", "Speakeasy", "Pretty", "Credo", and "That Old Feeling". CD

✨✧ MuhsinahDay.Break 2.0 ... CD
Rxlngr, 2008. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Deep deep work from Muhsinah – a singer with a sound that's plenty darn hip! The record's got a feel that's as spacey as you might expect from the cover – not the broken beats of the London scene, but more a pastiche of elements from a range of different sources – righteous jazz, underground soul, analogue electronics, and more – all filtered together with a trippy production style that often has the vocals, beats, and keyboards leaping nicely from speaker to speaker! The sound is quite fresh, and hard to describe accurately – and it's our bet that we'll be hearing plenty from Muhsinah in years to come. Titles include "Discovery", "Once Again", "Mine", "Net Knot", "Millions", "Only & Always", "AM", and "Reconstruction". CD
(Out of print and still sealed.)

✨✧ Paul MauriatEmmanuelle/Fantastic 4 Channel (SACD multi-channel) ... CD
Vocalion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two slinky 70s classics from French maestro Paul Mauriat – still doing great at this point in his career! Emmanuelle is a record that has Mauriat taking on the lead theme of the 70s erotic film at the start – then moving into a whole host of 70s covers, too – all done with Mauriat's trademark sense of timing alongside swirling strings – a bit of bass at the bottom, some well-paced arrangements on the top – occasionally nodding to a bit of the disco of the generation, but never too much overall. Titles include "Emmanuelle", "Angie Baby", "Mandy", "Oumparere", "Have You Never Been Mellow", and "Rock The Boat". Fantastic 4 Channel is a record that Paul Mauriat created for the Quad generation – and as such, it's got a very nice mix of tracks from previous recordings, but recast for the four-speaker mode – which means even more dynamic sound than before! Titles include "Anonimo Veneziano", "Colombe Ivre", "Un Banc Un Abre Un Rue", "L'Amerique", "Tombe La Negie", and "Love Story". CD
(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – also works on standard CD players! Tracks available in stereo and multi-channel!)

Ornette ColemanShape Of Jazz To Come (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Speakers Corner (UK), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
An album that certainly lives up to the promise of its title – as it's filled with amazing instrumentation, groundbreaking compositions, and a sound in jazz that few ears could imagine at the time! The groove here is extremely modal – all instruments rolling along on the same rhythmic pulse, with drums, bass, trumpet, and alto sax incredibly intertwined! Ornette's really got an edge on his instrument – cutting even more deeply here than the clipped, punctuated cornet work of Don Cherry – and the rhythm team of Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins are simply amazing – not just keeping up with the energy of Ornette, but also really helping facilitate it as well! Titles include the haunting "Lonely Woman", plus "Peace", "Chronology", and "Focus on Sanity". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 180 gram pressing!)

✨✧ Herb AlpertRise ... LP
A&M, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whole new level of genius for Herb Alpert – a record that's light years away from his earlier work with the Tijuana Brass, and which has the trumpeter stepping strongly into the world of smooth jazzy fusion! The title track here went platinum the minute it was released – and became an end-of-the 70s instrumental anthem that seemed to drift out of speakers around the country. The rest of the album's pretty great too – built on the modes explored by Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, and other soulful fusion players of the 70s – but cast out with a bit more drama overall. Titles include the seminal jazz dance classic "Rotation" – plus "Rise", "Street Life", "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)", "1980", "Angelina", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini Soundtracks (Early Movies/La Strada/Notti Di Cabiria/La Dolce Vita/8 1/2) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to grace the silver screen – an amazing performance supported here by key early work from Nino Rota. Rota's score is a mix of circus-like themes and darker moments – all delivered with a dynamic energy that's really wonderful – almost leaping out of the speakers at some points, then sliding into shimmering, watery depths at others. Titles include "Il Pranzo Di Nozze", "Tema Della Strada", "Gelsomina", "Il Bambino Malato", "Zampano Abbandona Gelsomina", and "Addio Del Matto". Next is Le Notti Di Cabiria – aka Nights Of Cabiria – a film of similar vintage, with an equally wonderful score by Rota! The music's a bit more lush this time around – fuller orchestrations at times, but always with that ear for an isolated melody amidst the larger body – that sense of personality that makes Rota's soundtracks so great. Titles include "Picnic Al Divino Amore", "L'Illusionista", "Il Trasloco", "Aspettando Giorgio", and "Le Notti Di Cabiria". La Dolce Vita is one of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". 8 1/2 is beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Last up is a special soundtrack – featuring works from very early films by Fellini – including Il Bidone, I Vitelloni, Un Agenzia Matrimoniale, Lo Sceicco Bianco, and La Grande Seduzione. CD

✨✧ AZSOSA – Save Our Streets AZ ... LP
Fastlife/Quiet Money, 2000. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from AZ – recorded at a time when the MC was out on his own, without a label, and maybe serving up some of the rawest rhymes of his career! Production is by Chop Diesel, who has this edgey style that's maybe a precursor of some of the internet modes to come – never too complex, and with just the right punch to burst out of a small speaker alongside the sharp-edged lyrics from AZ! Titles include "I Don't Give A F*ck Now", "Bodies Gonna Get Caught", "Platinum Bars", "Love Me In Your Special Way", "That's Real", and "It B's Like That". LP, Vinyl record album
