✨✧ ColoursColours ... CD
Dot/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968. New Copy ... $4.99
One of the best American psyche albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". CD

Barbara "I Dream Of Jeannie" Eden gets herself out of the bottle and into the studio for a set of 60s pop tunes designed to bring out another side of her magic! Bill Justis handled the arrangements, in a style that has that RCA Nashville country pop sort of feel overall – electric bass plucking out the bottom, chorus vocals helping out the lead, and a sort of syncopated groove that gently steps along from back to front. We'll be honest, and say that Barbara's vocals aren't that much to write home about – but the album's a nice celebrity relic – and does feature a few sexy Jeannie shots on the front! Titles include "Single Girl", "Bend It", "Rebel", "I Get The Fever", and "Nobody But A Fool". CD

Bonnie GuitarMoonlight & Shadows ... LP
Dot, 1957. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Dreamy vocal work from Bonnie Guitar – a singer with a bit of a country tinge, but a jazzy feel as well! The album's got a laidback and mellow feel that fits perfectly with the title – moonlight, with just a hint of shadow – a blue undercurrent that comes from Bonnie's nice deep-toned approach on vocals. The backings are by Jack Fascinato, but are a bit more sensitive than some of Jack's work with Tennessee Ernie Ford – not as playful, but still with a great sense of sound overall – one that's a bit echoey, and which makes a great setting for Bonnie's voice. Titles include "Moonlight On The Colorado", "Moonlight & Roses", "The Moon Is Low", "Roll Along Kentucky Moon", "Get Out & Get Under The Moon", and "Moonlight & Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album

Manos HadjidakisBlue ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... $7.99
Although Manos Hadjidakis' soundtrack work of the 60s is mostly in the Greek-sounding mode, this one features him hitting a bit of a western soundtrack feel – to back a drama starring Terence Stamp, Ricardo Montalban, and Karl Malden. About half the tracks are instrumentals with an orchestral feel, and the others are similar, but have slight "westerny" touches – although not as much so as work for Italian films of the same time. Laurindo Almeida plays a bit of acoustic guitar on the album – and titles include "Blue's Solitude", "The Mexicans Are Coming", "Death Of Blue", "Nocturne", "Scherzo", and "Morning After Love".

Neal HeftiOdd Couple ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... $9.99
The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights".

A unique western score by Maurice Jarre, written for this late 60s Pancho Villa thriller that starred Robert Mitchum, Charles Bronson, and Yul Brynner – who's clearly wearing hair for the film! Jarre's score interweaves more traditional scoring with bits of western and Mexican themes – often done in lietmotif mode, with less of the specifically western styles used by Italian composers of the period. Titles include "Waltz In The Clouds", "Much More Money", "The Battle", "Petit Cafe Concert", "Cantina Dance", "Villa Rides", and "Villistas Attacking The Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Fern JonesGlory Road ... CD
Dot/Numero, 1959. New Copy ... $7.99 15.98
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many years – but only recorded two albums, this one for Dot/Paramount. Fern sings in the torch country style of Patsy Cline, often with spare rockabilly-styled guitar and drums backbeat. This album is probably most noteworthy for the classic song "I Was There When It Happened" – co-written by Fern Jones and made famous by Johnny Cash. It's especially legendary because it was the only gospel number Sam Phillips allowed Cash to include on his first LP. But Fern's album is more than worthy of a late discovery – she's a true pioneer, fearlessly blending the Lord's work with the Devil's music – at a time when such poles were anathema for most artists, fans, and record labels alike! Original album tracks include "You Ain't Got Nuthin'", "I Do Believe", "Be Thankful You're You", "I Ain't Got Time", "Let Tomorrow Be" – plus the bonus tracks "When I Meet You", "By And By", "I Don't Care What The World May Do" and "This World Is Not My Home".

Leonard NimoyTwo Sides of Leonard Nimoy ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona! As is well known, Nimoy really thought of himself as more of a serious singer than just a pointy-eared alien – so other records have a lot more of him singing straight pop numbers. This one, though, actually features about half Spock material – a full side of goofy sci-fi numbers like "The Difference Between Us", "Amphibious Assault", "Highly Illogical" and "Spock Thoughts". The other side still has some nice pop tunes – including a great reading of "If I Were A Carpenter", plus "Cotton Candy", "The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins", and "Love Of The Common People".

Nancy PriddyYou've Come This Way Before ... LP
Dot/Modern Harmonic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A tremendously beautiful album from vocalist Nancy Priddy – the kind of record that got buried in the record bins of the 60s, but which is finally getting the attention it deserves! Nancy had a career that started out in folk (she was once a member of The Bitter End Singers), but she's working here in a slightly psychedelic style that mixes the intimate with the baroque – in a way that reminds us a lot of some of our favorite work on A&M at the time, and which is masterminded here by producer Phil Ramone. Nancy's sweet vocals dance lightly around a mix of strings, woodwinds, and sometimes funky drums that give the album a much stronger kick than you might expect – a groovy little sound that's almost Sunshine Pop, but a bit deeper and more personal overall. Manny Albam provided some great arrangements to the record that sparkle and groove along with some of his better-known jazz work of the period – and in a way, the record has echoes of some of the hipper work done on the Project 3 label of the era, almost reminding us of some of our favorite tunes by Free Design. Nancy wrote all her own material on the set – another thing that makes the record sound especially fresh – and titles include "My Friend Frank", "On The Other Side Of The River", "And Who Will You Be Then", "Epitaph", "Ebony Glass", "You've Come This Way Before", and "Mystic Lady".

Dot/MCA (Japan), Early 60s. Used ... $14.99
One of Lalo Schifrin's first, and rarest soundtracks – and a bit more complicated than some of his later work. Given the setting of the film, there's a surprising number of jazzy tunes on here – including some cool easy breezy ones that are in keeping with Schfrin's best mid 60s work. These are also mixed with some more dramatic numbers, and a few tracks that have acoustic guitar playing a gentle lead style, similar to some of the tunes in The Fox. Titles include "Bean Time", "Egg Eating Contest", "Tar Sequence", "Ballad Of Cool Hand Luke", and "Road Gang". CD

✨✧ Anita KerrBert Kaempfert Turns Us On ... LP
Warner/Dot, 1967. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to imagine Anita Kerr being turned on – especially given her school marm-ish look on the cover – but the album's a pretty darn groovy set, and one that certainly shows Kerr picking up some of the best easy elements of the 60s! The Burt Kaempfert touch is heard here especially in the album's use of electric bass – a nicely bouncing element that gives most of the tunes a lot more of a bottom than some of Kerr's other work – used in that trademark stepping style that Burt first laid down himself a few years before on worldwide instrumental hits, and made even better here by Anita's great quartet and their warmly-crafted vocal harmonies! Titles include many tunes presented in a Kaempfert-styled way – but with vocals – and tracks include "Love", "I Can't Help Remembering You", "Two Can Live On Love Alone", 'Spanish Eyes", "Remember When", "Danke Schoen", "Strangers In The Night", "Wonderland By Night", and "A Swingin' Safari".

A pretty great little album from Bonfa – always one of the more corruptible bossa players, working here in a groovy set of pop arrangements by Deodato with a lively American twist! Some tunes are fast-driving bossa numbers with good jazz accompaniment, others have backing vocals in a wordless 60s style, and others are mellow and gentle. The best of these latter ones is "Oba Oba", which has great duet vocals by Pat Kirby and Bonfa – and other titles include "Coffee Beans", "Gentle Rain", "Batuque", "Summer Summer Wind", "Be Still", and "Love Birds".

✨✧ Buddy DeFrancoBuddy DeFranco Plays Nelson Riddle's Cross Country Suite (Hamilton) ... LP
Dot/Hamilton, 1958. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful music throughout – and an album that's as beautifully written as it is played! The work represents one of the few long-form concept compositions from Nelson Riddle – an extended "Cross Country Suite" of trcks that take the listener on a tour of the US – performed here with full orchestrations that are very much in Nelson's best mode of the time, topped with some especially great solos from Buddy DeFranco! Buddy's sound here is tremendous – way more than straight clarinet jazz, and instead a really evocative approach to his instrument that brings forth an amazing array of sounds, tones, and feelings. The music is as seductive as the best late 50s jazz soundtracks – very expressive, but never over the top – and with a mature approach to its themes and sounds that really makes us wish they still made records like this! Titles include "Down East", "Gulf Coast", "The Rockies", "The Great Lakes", "Tall Timber", "Smoky Mountain Country", "El Camino Real", "Metropolis", and "Longhorn". LP, Vinyl record album

The record features Chet's trumpet in a frontline with Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone and Bud Shank on baritone sax – working through a set of cool modern arrangements by Jack Montrose, Johnny Mandel, and Bill Holman – in a mellow west coast take on the chamber jazz sound of the 50s. The pairing of horns is great, and makes for some evocative changes and tonal colors – on a set list that includes the tracks "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", "Dot's Groovy", "The Half Dozens", and "Stella By Starlight".

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

Yet by crossover, we don't mean that Harris' music is weak or commercial – and instead, it's so bold, powerful, and downright catchy that you can't help but love the man and his records – 35 of which are served up on this nice little set – filled with singles for Aladdin, plus some later Dot Records material too! Titles include "Runk Bunk", "Tears From My Heart", "I'm Out To Get'Cha", "Do What You Did", "I'm Asking For Forgiveness", "Tell Me So", "Fine Fine Frame", "Send Me Some Loving", "Mr Satan", "Goddess Of Angels", "Paradise Hill", "Slip Slop", and "Smokey Joe's".

A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Philosophy Of The World album by The Shaggs – the enigmatic trio of Dot, Betty, and Helen Wiggin – three sisters all recorded by their father, who had the foresight to capture their simple but undeniable musical brilliance! The trio's first album is much more widely circulated, and has influenced decades of musicians and listeners – and the group here are slightly evolved – better musicians, sweeter singers, but still very much in the same territory of naive expression and completely charming presentation! The album was put together in the early 80s, after the successful reissue of their debut – and features a mixture of home tapes and other rare recordings – with titles that include "Wheels", "Shaggs Own Thing", "Painful Memories", "Gimme Dat Ding", "I Love", "My Cutie", "Paper Roses", and a version of "My Pal Foot Foot".

A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Philosophy Of The World album by The Shaggs – the enigmatic trio of Dot, Betty, and Helen Wiggin – three sisters all recorded by their father, who had the foresight to capture their simple but undeniable musical brilliance! The trio's first album is much more widely circulated, and has influenced decades of musicians and listeners – and the group here are slightly evolved – better musicians, sweeter singers, but still very much in the same territory of naive expression and completely charming presentation! The album was put together in the early 80s, after the successful reissue of their debut – and features a mixture of home tapes and other rare recordings – with titles that include "Wheels", "Shaggs Own Thing", "Painful Memories", "Gimme Dat Ding", "I Love", "My Cutie", "Paper Roses", and a version of "My Pal Foot Foot". LP features the bonus track "Love At First Sight". LP, Vinyl record album

George WallingtonGeorge Wallington Trio ... CD
Savoy/Nippon (Japan), 1949/1951. Used ... $6.99
Great little trio work from pianist George Wallington – material recorded for Savoy when he was at the height of his boppish powers on the keys! Side one of the album is all trio material – with Curley Russell on bass and Max Roach on drums – providing a nice little kick in the rhythm, similar to Wallington trio material on Prestige! George has a way of leaping and loping on the keys that's totally great – a style that's inherently rhythmic, even without the support of the group – and which has some more angular edges than in later Wallington years. Titles include "Twins", "Hyacinth", "Polka Dot", "High Score", and "Joy Bell". Side two features 2 more tracks by that trio – "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Fine & Dandy" – plus 2 more by a trio that includes Russell on bass and Charlie Perry on drums – "Fairyland" and "Racing", both Wallington originals. But best of all are 2 final tracks that feature Wallington with a septet that includes Kai Winding on trombone, Gerry Mulligan on baritone, and Brew Moore on tenor sax – titles that have a sharply swinging feel, and a great sort of conception overall. Buddy Stewart scats vocals on "Knockout", and the septet works instrumentally on "Igloo" – penned by the group's trumpeter Jerry Floyd. CD

✨✧ Manny Albam & His Jazz GreatsJazz New York ... CD
Coral/Lonehill (Spain), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Manny's really grooving wonderfully on this session – using the same formation from his Jazz Greats Vol 1 session for Decca, an assortment of the best New York soloists Albam could find, all brought together in one great band for the session! The group is a largeish one, but they've got an incredibly tight energy – and Album's well remembering his own days as a player in a larger group with the arrangements, and gives the soloists plenty of room to express themselves. Players include Donald Byrd, Art Farmer, Bob Brookmeyer, Frank Socolow, Eddie Costa, Dick Katz, Nick Travis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods – all painting a beautiful sound portrait of New York arranged by Manny! Titles include "Thruway", "They All Laughed", "Fresh Flute", "Dot's Right", "The Nether Regions", and "Hebe The Cups Please". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from the Something New Something Blue session for Columbia from the same period – "Night Crawlers" and "Tin Roof Blues". CD

Alive, and plenty lively – one of our favorite albums ever to feature the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and one that has them really stretching out a lot more than usual! The album's got a format that's quite different than the tightly-reigned sound of Sims and Cohn on other dates – as all the four tracks here run for longer than nine minutes – really allowing lots of room for solo space – and some great interplay between the reedmen too! Phil Woods joins the twin tenors on alto for two tracks – and the rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Nabil Totah on bass, and Paul Motian on drums. Titles include "Lover Come Back To Me", "It Had To Be You", and "Wee Dot". CD

✨✧ TortoiseIt's All Around You (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wow, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of Tangerine Dream as much as they do early post rock! Gone, for the most part from early Tortoise is that strong, rubbery electric bass groove and tightly thudding live drum sound. It's All Around You retains the bright vibes and sputtering electronics of the TNT album, and the out front, almost rock & roll guitar lines of the Standards album – and adds an ever present, ambient synthesizer bubble of sound to surround the thing. It's all so catchy, too, and almost sunny. If Tortoise hasn't really broken any new ground this time, it's only because they're the ones who broke it in the first place. Tracks include "It's All Around You", The Lithium Shifts", "Crest", "Stretch", "Dot/Eyes", "By Dawn", "Five Too Many" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob Wills & His Texas PlayboysSan Antonio Rose (11 CDs, 1 DVD, plus Book!) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1930s/1940s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A simply amazing collection, and the greatest single artist country box set, ever! Bear Family has done a tremendous service to the world with this one – virtually everything Wills and the Texas Playboys recorded between the early 30s and late 40s for Columbia. Spanning 11 CDs in all, the early material in the set finds Bob and the boys working in something closer to a country blues mode, before the band was fleshed out to include horns and the bigger arrangements, and before the incredible vocalist Tommy Duncan stepped so far out front. It's a style that most of us haven't heard Wills play in – a wonderful listen, and a great peek into the roots of the group. The other 85 or so percent of the songs in the set are what we already know and love – the birth, growth, and the perfection of Western swing! The group is large and swinging, Tommy croons smoothly like the vocal giant that he was, Bob saws and haws away – the best! Whatever you might be thinking about the price tag, this is truly a bargain – with more than 300 songs, a 12-inch hard cover book with 200 pages of goodies, including a stunning collection of photos and illustrations, a great biography, complete discography, and tons more! Plus, you get a bonus DVD, in NTSC format (compatible with US players) of the film "Take Me Back To Oklahoma" – a campy Western from 1940 starring Tex Ritter – and featuring Bob and the Playboys doing several numbers! Includes "Spanish Two Step", "Bleeding Heart Blues", ""Gambling Polka Dot Blues", "New San Antonio Blues", "Miss Molly", "The Devil Ain't Lazy", "Cowboy Stomp", "Thanks For The Heartaches", "New Texas Playboy Rag" – and hundreds more! CD
(Please note that there is a tear along the back of the outer box & is priced accordingly. The book, CDs & rest of the set are in fantastic condition.)

✨✧ Larry HallSandy – The 45s & More 1959 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice range of work from Larry Hall – a singer who's best known as a one-hit wonder, with a small hit at that – but who steps out here with a groovy batch of material that only ever saw release as a string of indie label 45s at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s! Larry's got a great way of dipping and warbling his voice – never too much, but this unique inflection that can make simple lyrics catchier than they might otherwise sound – captured here with backings that mix rock and roll with gentler pop production, a mode that's maybe like some of the Cadence or Dot Records material of the period. Titles include Larry's hit "Sandy" – plus "Kool Luv", "The Stranger", "Rebel Heart", "Lips Of Wine", "Ladder Of Love", "I Didn't Ask To Be Born", "I'll Stay Single", "For Every Boy", "A Girl Like You", "Lovin Tree", and "I Sit Alone".

Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte BardotBonnie & Clyde (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fontana (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An incredible collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot – one of Serge's first duet albums ever – and a gem all the way through! In the year before he cut "Je T'aime Moi Non Plus" with Jane Birkin, Serge recorded this great album with Brigitte Bardot in which he worked out many of the same ideas. The album is probably best known for the track "Bonnie & Clyde" – which has been sampled to great fame over the years – but there's loads of other great tracks on here, with a mix of styles that joins Serge's jazzy years with his softcore 70s work – very cool, very groovy, and years ahead of its time. Some tracks are duets, and some are sung individually by Serge or Brigitte, but they're all great, and titles include "Intoxicated Man", "L'eau A La Bouche", "Un Jour Comme Un Autre", "Comic Strip", and more! Arrangements by Alain Gourager, Michel Colombier, and Claude Bolling – and the cover's got a great shot of Serge & BB as Bonnie & Clyde! LP, Vinyl record album

Hamase plays a fair bit of fretless bass – arcing and crafting these notes that are very much in the best jazz fusion school of the time – but they're mixed with keyboards, electronics, acoustic piano and percussion from two bandmates – all of which creates this unique soundscape as the trio shifts through so many different elements at once. Titles include "Duplicated Scene", "Pascal Variant", "Plateau", "Reminiscence", "Elan Vital", "Circlet", "Symptom", "Intermezzo", and "Aborigine". CD

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brigitte Bardot's best known on these shores as an actress, but during the 60s she cut some really fantastic work on the scene in Paris – including a fair bit of groovers that were done with help from the legendary Serge Gainsbourg! Bardot provided a fantastic new voice in the world of pop music – a singer who was unabashedly open about her desires, and very different than the more melancholy stars of a few years before – a quality that's further emphasized by the wonderfully groovy instrumentation used on most of these tracks! Production and arrangements are superb – and put this music in the best territory of the grooviest 60s French pop by artists like Serge Gainsbourg, France Gall, Jacques Dutronc, and a rare few others. This is the first-ever English-annotated collection of work from the period – and features a whopping 25 tracks from her recordings for Philips and Disc AZ – titles that include "Harley Davidson", "Contact", "Neu Au Soleil", "Je Danse Donc Je Suis", "La Madrague", "Les Hommes Endormis", "Je Voudrais Perdre La Memoire", "Mr Sun", "Le Diable Est Anglais", "Tu Es Venu Mon Amour", "John Et Michel", "Gang Gang", and duets with Serge Gainsbourg on "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus".

DOL (Russia), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Five full albums of hip French pop from the 60s – all packaged together, with a fair amount of bonus work too! First up are the first two albums by Francoise Hardy – filled with original tunes that have a really fresh presentation – not just in the lyrics, but in the overall presentation – which was a huge change from the overly emotive modes of the generation before. Hardy plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar along with her vocals – furthering the groovy feel of the set – and backings are by the orchestra of Roger Samyn, who adds in some slight rockish touches! Next is Johnny Hallyday chante Johnny Hallyday – a set that features all original material by the famous French rocker – really showing his growing strengths as a songwriter, which helped give him a uniquely French style! Next is Brigitte Bardot Sings – classic 60s work from Brigitte Bardot – the roots of French female pop, with a set of tracks that mix together bits of rock, pop, and lively jazz-based arrangements – all in a unique blend that's totally great, and every bit as wonderful as you might expect! We might go so far as to argue that Brigitte Bardot on record is almost sexier than on the screen – and thanks to backing from the likes of Claude Bolling, Francois Rauber, and Pedro Serrano – the grooves are as great as the lovely lady's vocals! Twiste Et Chante follows – groovy early work from Sylvie Vartan – some of the earliest sides we've ever heard from this fab French singer, and done at a time when she was clearly inspired by early rock from the US scene! A number of the tracks here are French remakes of American songs – like "Twist & Shout", "Comin Home Baby", "So Long Baby", and other groovy 60s numbers – mixed with French originals, and all given some sprightly orchestrations by Eddie Vartan, in a way that allows Hammond, guitar, and other electric bits to mix nicely with larger arrangements. Last up is Serge Gainsbourg Et Le Cinema – a set that shows early soundtrack contributions from the legendary French singer – really cool work that resonates strongly with the mix of jazz and Latin in his other early recordings!

AzymuthOutubro (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound here is still relatively spare, and sublimely reliant on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who plays Fender Rhodes, organ, and percussion on the set. Ivan Conti handles the main percussion, though – a great mix of tight work on the drum kit and rootsier, Airto-like elements that are totally great – and the whole thing's driven along nicely by bass and guitar from Alex Malheiros – a perfectly fused lineup that really hits their own groove on the set. Guests include Aleuda on percussion and vocals, Gordinho on surdo, and Doto on repinique – and titles include "Papasong", "Outubro", "Maracana", "Un Amigo", "Carta Pro Airto", and "Dear Limmertz".

Cleveland EatonRaw Live Jazz ... CD
Eaton, 1993. Used ... $11.99
Surprisingly tripped-out work from bassist Cleveland Eaton – a set that begins with some hip work on electrified cello, an instrument that Eaton bills in the notes as "Miss Funky Lu"! His sound on these cuts is really wild – spacey and out there, almost in the territory of Melvin Jackson at points – but then followed by some fuller trio numbers that have Eaton sliding a bit more back into soul jazz territory! The initial part of the album, with Funky Lu, is almost all solo – then things move into the trio tracks, which feature piano, bass, and drums – plus occasional guitar – and which leave plenty of room for Cleveland's inventive lines on acoustic bass, very much in the spirit he first adopted when joining the Ramsey Lewis Trio in the 60s. Titles include "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Please Send Me Someone To Love/On The Avenue Blues", "Just Friends", "Moanin", "Caravan", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". CD

Seems to be a lot of tunes here that I've got on other Evans recordings." But take it from us, this set's a real winner – beautifully recorded despite a larger venue performance in Tokyo – and captured with all the grace, poise, and gentle-flowing genius of Evans in his best better-known live dates – a real antidote to some of the other 70s live albums that might have been better left unissued. Everyone's at the top of their game here – Eddie Gomez on bass with those round warm tones, Marty Morrell on drums with his simple spare rhythms, and Evans himself with a sound that's bold then quiet then bold then soft – beautiful throughout, and really setting fire.

Serge GainsbourgEn Studio Avec Serge Gainsbourg Vol 2 ... LP
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
A treasure trove of rare work from the legendary Serge Gainsbourg – studio outtakes, alternate versions, and lots of other material that stands as a great addition to the catalog of one of the coolest, grooviest French language singers ever! This vinyl volume 2 brings together rare tracks by Serge and a few associates – some from 45 or LP projects, but presented here in different modes that stand as a wonderful complement to some of the versions you might know – almost like a "part 2" or extended take in some cases. Titles include "Panpan Cucul (unreleased inst)", "First Class Ticket (alternate)", "Comme Un Boomerang", "Goodbye Emmanuelle (unreleased inst)", "Ecce Homo (alternate lyrics)", "Torrey Canyon (alt mix)", "En Melody (solo violin electric)", "Machins Choses (inst version)", "Milena (inst)", and the cuts "Mambo Miam Miam (inst)" by Los Goragueros, "Les Papillons Noirs" by Michelle Arnaud, and "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus (acetate original)" by Brigitte Bardot and Serge Gainsbourg.

Serge Gainsbourg & OthersSerge Gainsbourg & Friends (4CD set) ... CD
Wagram (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $7.99
A very cool little collection – one that not just offers up a huge amount of important early work by the legendary Serge Gainsbourg – but a set that also includes a fair bit of his contemporaries singing his songs! When Serge first sprang onto the scene in the late 50s, he brought a new sort of edge to Parisian pop – a sense of danger and power that was different than some of the bluer-tinged modes of some of his predecessors – and the special quality of Gainsbourg's songs also led to many others recording his music – some up-and-coming artists like himself, others older artists who were taken up by Serge's new sort of energy. The 4CD set features a whopping 80 tracks in all – 48 by Gainsbourg, plus more by Juliette Greco, Brigitte Bardot, Michele Arnaud, Jean Claude Pascal, Hugues Aufray, Gloria Lasso, Alain Goraguer, and others.

Serge Gainsbourg/Michel ColombierLe Pacha (with bonus tracks) ... LP
We Want Sounds (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Stunning sounds from the team of Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier – and maybe the most perfect example of why Gainsbourg soundtracks can be so great! Le Pacha is a wonderful blend of trippy touches and more subtle jazzy moments, plus bits of electric sitar and bassy funk – shifting effortlessly from track to track to create a mad melange of musical grooves! Cuts include the classic "Requiem Pour Un Con", which is a funky gem – plus "Psychastenie", "Joss A La Calvados", "Un Noel 67", "Cadavres En Serie", "Batucada Meurtriere", and Brigitte Bardot singing "Harley Davidson"! Also includes 3 bonus tracks – the unreleased instrumental version of "Requiem Pour Un Con", plus "Freedom Baby" and "No No Yes Yes". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HartmanVoice That Is ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1964. Used ... $4.99
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way – a great antidote to some of the bigger singers of his generation, and cast perfectly here in some lightly jazzy arrangements by Bob Hammer. A few tracks feature backing by a quartet led by Hank Jones – and the rest feature a slightly larger group with 2 guitars and some nice Latin percussion. Titles include "Funny World", "Waltz For Debbie", "It Never Entered My Mind", "Let Me Love You", "My Ship", "The Day The World Stopped Turning", "Slow Hot Wind", and "The More I See You". CD

Red HollowayBurner ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Near Mint- ... $33.99
One of the first in a run of excellent mid 60s sides from tenor saxophonist Red Holloway – a very cooking player who's at the height of his powers on this hard-edged set! The date has Red in territory that's slightly more expanded than his dates with Jack McDuff – a quartet mode with John Patton on organ, Eric Gale on guitar, and Paul Serrano on trumpet – all in a tightly arranged sound that's almost equal parts soul jazz and 60s soul instrumental! One track features a slightly different lineup – with Hobart Dotson on trumpet, George Butchka on organ, and Charles Lindsay on guitar – but the groove is quite the same, and features plenty of sweetly funky little numbers! Titles include "Bretheren", "Miss Judie Mae", "Monkey Sho Can Talk", "Crib Theme", and "The Burner". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing, with Van Gelder stamp.)
