El Chicano20th Century Masters Millennium Collection – Best Of El Chicano ... CD
Kapp/Universal, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Stone Latin Soul – from one of the greatest groups of the genre! In the late 60s, New York was on top of the Latin Soul sound – blending together bits from Puerto Rican and African-American roots to come up with a whole new sound. But by the time of the early 70s, LA had taken over the groove – and nobody did it better than El Chicano! The combo had a really wonderful sound that was Chicano soul at its best – lots of jazzy stepping rhythms topped off with fuzzy guitars, sweet keyboard bits, and some warm and wonderful west coast soul-styled vocals. There were plenty of Latin influences in the rhythms, but the sound itself was pure LA – done with a really righteous groove throughout! This set brings together a dozen of the group's best tracks for the Kapp and MCA labels from the early 70s – and tracks include "Cubano Chant", "Viva Tirado", "El Cayuco", "The Latin One", "Tell Her She's Lovely", "Sabor A Mi", "Ahora Si", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Juntos".

El ChicanoCinco ... LP
MCA, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The group's fifth album – in case you couldn't guess by the title – and a still-strong batch of west coast Latin grooves! By this point, the group's become much more proficient vocally – and more of the songs are soul oriented than some of their earlier work, which tended to lean a bit more towards the jazz end of things. Playing's still quite funky, though – and the whole thing's got a nice bubbling over barrio kind of groove. Titles include "El Cayuco", "Children", "What You Don't Know Won't Hurt You", "Ahora Si", "Gringo En Mexico", and a great cover of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the MCA sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

El CocoLet's Get It Together/Fait Le Chat ... 7-inch
AVI, 1976. Very Good- ... $1.99
Nice early stuff from El Coco – with more of a funky sound than later work! "Let's Get it Together" is a nice club groover, stretched out to 6 minutes here – with some great keyboards drifting in and out of midtempo beats – almost in a P&P sort of mode, but a bit more classy overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a bit of marker.)

✨✧ El Gran ComboFiesta Con El Gran Combo ... LP
Gema, 1966. Very Good+ ... $29.99
It's hard not to have a fiesta with the music of El Gran Combo – given that their upbeat grooves are always so great! This mid 60s swinger has the combo really taking off – working with twin trumpets and saxophone in the lead, really wrapped together tightly over the sharp percussion at the bottom – all given a strong sense of direction through the piano of Rafael Ithier! Vocals are by Andy Montanez and Pellin Rodriguez – two singers with soulful undercurrents who really make the group great – and titles include "Eso Merece Un Trago", "El Embustero", "Bacoso", "Cienfuegos", "El Negro De San Anton", "Paleco", "La Pelota", and "Fiesta Con El Gran Combo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing with yellow labels. Cover has light aging and some splitting in the top seam.)

El Gran ComboLatin Power ... LP
Gema, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $29.99
Latin Power is Latin Soul – and the album is one of El Gran Combo's best from the boogaloo era! The tunes are heavy on English language lyrics, and include a few great remakes of Anglo pop and soul tunes – all given a Latin Soul spin with plenty of heavy rhythms on the bottom, fierce instrumentation in the middle, and vocals on the top from singers Pellin Rodriguez and Andy Montanez! Titles include versions of "This Magic Moment", "Build Me Up Buttercup", "Aquarius", "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me", and "Cinnamon" – plus the great Latin original "Mundy Baja". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has split seams with masking tape remnants, sticker spots on front, and a small name in pen on back. Label has a name in pen.)

El Michels AffairSounding Out The City ... LP
Truth & Soul/Big Crown, 2005. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Easily one of the greatest new funk records of the 21st Century – and a set that goes way beyond some of the cliches that are currently gripping others in the deep funk underground! El Michels Affair have a cool, easygoing style to their music – one that's as much 70s jazz as it is 60s funk – and which makes for tunes that have a looser structure overall, which allows much more room for instrumental interplay, and the kind of sweet surprises that make the album so great! These guys have a real penchant for an unusual rhythm and interesting instrumental flair – and they borrow as much from 70s soundtracks and Latin albums as they do from the funky 45 era that clearly gave them their start. Totally fresh all the way through, and a record that delights us a lot more than we might have expected! Titles include "Detroit Twice", "El Pueblo Unido", "Behind The Blue Curtains", "Ocho Rios", "Hung Up On My Baby", "This Song's For You", and "Slide Show". LP, Vinyl record album

A new and amazing chapter in the always-evolving sound of this wonderful funk ensemble – a set that holds onto all the unusual elements of previous records, but also brings in some beautiful vocals from singer Piya Malik on a number of tracks! Malik really fleshes out the sound on the numbers she handles – and the overall style is very hard to pin down – a globe's worth of influences, as El Michels blend together post-Wu Tang, post-Ethiopiques, post-Arabesk modes – yet all infused with a classic sense of funk that's not only very faithful to the 70s, but also has a cinematic sense of majesty! The blend is great – and Piya really helps open up the sound on the album's vocal tracks – served up in a mix of titles that include "Dhuaan", "Lesson Learned", "Murkit Gem", "Fazed Out", "Ala Vida", "Unathi", "Last Blast", "Zaharila", and "Silver Lining".

Kahil El ZabarKahil El Zabar's America The Beautiful ... CD
Spiritmuse, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A bold vision for a better version of our nation – served up here by percussionist Kahil El Zabar, but in a mode that also has him working as the conductor of a larger ensemble too! The record has all the sense of pride, power, and optimism of some of the best sessions of this type from the 80s – that feeling that music can actually effect change, especially in the hands of artists like this – a very strong ensemble that features work from Corey Wilkes on trumpet, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Ramos on bass, Samuel Williams on violin, and Dennis Winslett on alto sax! The record still has a sense of groove that you'd know from Kahil's smaller group records – imagine a Ritual Trio sense of rhythm with augmented elements – and the set mixes a few well-chosen covers with great originals. The set is dedicated to Bluiette – it was his last recording – and titles include "Prayers For The Unwarranted Sufferings", "Sketches Of An Afro Blue", "Express Yourself", "Freedom March", "That We Ask Of Our Creator", and "How Can We Mend A Broken Heart".

Kahil El'Zabar's Ritual Trio with Pharoah SandersAfrica N'Da Blues ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... $13.99
The Ritual Trio gets some mighty hip company here – the legendary Pharoah Sanders, who really fleshes out the group's sound with his tremendous work on tenor sax! Core members Ari Brown and Malachi Favors work as a well-tooled unit under the leadership of Kahil El Zabar – no surprise, given that all three had been working together for a decade and a half by the time of this recording. And with Sanders on tenor for the date, Brown plays a bit more piano than his usual reeds – letting Pharoah spin out soulful, spiritual lines that break somewhat from the more rhythmic approach that's usually used by the group. Favors' basswork is a real pleasure, as always – an earthy grounding that helps keep Kahil El Zabar in focus – and titles on the record include two takes of "Ka-Real", plus "Africanos/Latinos", "Miles Mode", "Autumn Leaves", "Africa N'Da Blues", and "Pharoah's Song".

Delmark, 2007. Used ... $11.99
Kahil El'Zabar's working here with the Infinity Orchestra – a very large ensemble of musicians from the south of France – pulled together by Kahil for this special performance! A core trio of Americans is at the lead – El'Zabar on percussion, Ernest Dawkins on alto, and Joseph Bowie on trombone – but the larger group supports their work wonderfully with a full complement of saxes, trumpets, and trombones – and a huge amount of African percussion that creates a very earthy feel. There's a few vocal moments on the set too, as well as a slightly unfortunate use of turntable work too – and titles include "Soul To Groove", "Nu Art Claiming Earth", "Return Of The Lost Tribe", and "Speaking In Tongues".

Omar El Shariyi (Ammar El Sherei)Oriental Music ... LP
Soutelphan/We Want Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
That's a pretty groovy looking keyboard on the cover – and the record's got a pretty groovy sound as well – very different than other organ records or Mid-East instrumental titles of the time, thanks in part to some very dexterous work on the multi-level keys from Omar El Shariyi! The tunes are all Egyptian melodies by Mohamed Abdel Wahab, but given a very groovy electric spin – in modes that sometimes almost veer towards the moogy, mixed with acoustic percussion, violin lines, and some other nice touches – all of which really keep things interesting in balance with the keyboards. Omar's actually the better-known Ammar El Sherei, working under a pseudonym – and titles include "Ana Wehabieby", "Ahwak", "Gafnoho", "Yawabor Kolly", and "Ah Mennak". LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Pregador Do Som (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky killer from this legendary European group – a record that's filled with as much funk and soul as the Latin elements you might have guessed from the title! El Chicles may have been a studio project, but they were a heck of a funky one – with hard drums, tight bass, and mixed-up Latin funky groove that was always pretty right on, no matter what the material happened to be! This cold little jammer from the early 70s features the group riffing hard on funky covers of "Viva Tirado", "Ode To Billy Joe", and "I'm A Man" – and grooving even better on the original tracks "Drug Bay" and the break-heavy "At Nee-Ko". There's some excellent organ in the mix, and the whole thing's packaged in a very cheesy cover! CD

A really different groove from El Michels Affair – but one that reminds us again that the group is really amazing at just about anything they ever try to do! The adult themes here are modes borrowed from older European styles – some of the slinky funk of Serge Gainsbourg and some of his contemporaries, mixed with maybe a touch of Euro erotic film scoring – but all given that strong undercurrent of funk that we can always expect from Leon Michels and the group – arranged and produced with a really superb quality throughout! The drums are nice and heavy, the basslines sexy and slinky, and there's some occasional wordless female vocals and larger arrangements that really expand the palette of El Michels. Titles include "Enfant", "Villa", "Kill The Lights", "Life Of Pablo", "A Swift Nap", "Munecas", "Rubix", "Hipps", and a number of "Adult Theme" tracks. LP, Vinyl record album

Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

A tasty Latin number from the 60s – recorded as one of a small handful of excellent Latin sides cut by Decca during the Latin Soul era! The record's kind of split down the middle, with half tracks that are in a straight Latin vein, and half tracks that are in a feisty boogaloo style. The boogaloo tracks are arranged by Marty Sheller – one of the best talents of the Latin Soul years – and titles include the instrumentals "Chicken & Booze" and "Up & Down", plus the vocal number "Pow Wow". Tito Jimenez is on vocals on other cuts – and titles include "La Flauta Mulaton", "La Fresa", "Fafallota", and "Manny's Guaguanco". CD

A swirling mix of modes from Electric Jalaba – a group who are first inspired by the hypnotic groove of gnawa music from North Africa, but who also bring a fair bit of contemporary elements to their music – dark strains of electronics that make the whole thing this unusual blend of heartfelt vocals and some colder, starker sonic elements! There's plenty here you'd recognize from gnawa at the core, but the electric bits almost evoke some moody electro soundtrack in more recent years – as if the Safdie Brothers were scoring a film that took place in Morocco!

Robin Jones SevenEl Maja ... CD
Apollo Sound/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99
A classic album of Latin grooves from the UK scene – a musical world that wasn't always a hotbed of styles in the Afro-Cuban mode, but which did have the benefit of the mighty percussionist Robin Jones! Jones was born in India, but moved to London during the same post-colonial jazz migration that brought the city key talents from the West Indies – and like Joe Harriott, Shake Keane, and others, Robin's contributions to the scene were crucial during the years he worked in a variety of different groups! This set is Jones' second as a leader – a very hip set that's all jazz all the way through – with plenty of percussion from Robin, and a combo that includes trumpet, saxes, keyboards, and vibes – all used in ways that take off from the best jazz descarga styles into a range of other modes. Titles include "El Maja", "The Wailer", "Batucada Da Vida", "Carica Papaya", "El Lobo", "Chant Afrique", and "Atlas". CD

A funky combo, but one with a real difference – as they seem to find whole new corners of the globe in which to work their magic – almost an imagined space of cultural criss-crossing, all set to some mighty funky bass and drums! The core element here is the guitar – which echoes exotic modes that seem to move from Mexican folk, to contemporary Tuareg sounds, and even a bit of southwest guitar instrumental echo – but all in ways that are very fresh and different, and which also sound quite unusual compared to the usual use of guitar in a funky combo! There's a bit of vocals on the album, but really the guitar is the main "voice" – and one that speaks volumes – on titles that include "Lady & Man", "Como Te Quiero", "Shades Of Man", "Maria Tambien", "Como Me Quieres", "A Hymn", and "Rules".

A trippier version of Khruangbin than we're used to – but that's maybe no surprise, given that the whole album's a dub version of the Con Todo El Mundo record – with all the best funky currents of that sweet set, and some wilder modes as well! Drums and bass really get a great workout – and the production isn't the usual Jamaican-inspired dub, but a mode that's maybe partly got a David Axelrod quality – as these guys use the instrumental moments to open up into all these dark, moody corners – while still keeping things nicely funky overall. Titles include "With All The World", "Sisters & Brothers", "How I Love", "Four Of Five", "Hasta El Cielo", and "Order Of Operations". Also includes bonus Scientist mixes – "Rules (Scientist dub)" and "Como Te Quiero (Scientist dub)". CD

A wonderfully hard-to-categorize album from the start of the 80s – a Mexican record that mixes folkloric roots with electronic instrumentation – but all in a way that sounds much more ancient than you'd expect for the time! The fusion of modes here is wonderful – almost at a level that reminds us of some of the Graeme Revell experiments of the mid 80s, or some of the more organic electronics from Japan – as the whole thing feels a lot more acoustic than electric, with a wonderful blend of woody sounds, percussion, and other great elements.

A brilliant large group performance from Argentine bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz – and one that's got all the fire and energy you might expect from the cover! The album's an extended piece in five movements – written, arranged, and directed by Ruiz on bass – but featuring some stunning solo work from Mario Cosentino on alto sax, Gustavo Bergalli on flugelhorn, and Ruben Lopez Furst on piano! The tunes step out slowly, but build fully – with a mixture of complex ideas and rich individuality that reminds us a lot of the Clark Boland Big Band, with with perhaps an even greater sense of space. The album's a gem all the way through – and movements include "Hasta El Cielo", "Mab Amor", "El Grito", "Tendre El Mundo", and "De Nuevo El Grito". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's mostly a spare batch of tracks cut by Alice and her trio with Ron Carter and Ben Riley – but also features some guest work on sax by Joe Henderson and Pharoah Sanders on a few tracks. Pharoah and Joe blow with beautiful post-Coltrane spirituality on the tracks "Ptah The El Daoud" and "Mantra" – but equally great is the beautiful spare piano cut "Turiya & Ramakrishna" – an incredible tune that has Alice playing with a soulfulness you'd hardly expect! A real treasure all the way through – and the kind of album that ranks with the best in the Impulse catalog! CD

Hector Lavoe's vocals are wrapped tightly and beautifully here in Willie Colon production – and the album's one of the classics from the pair recorded at the height of Lavoe's solo career! The sound is tight and dynamic, but never too over the top – and although Lavoe's vocals are certainly center stage on the record, there's also some tremendous flourishes from the backing players that really drive the set. And as a surprisingly highlight, the album actually features one instrumental track – very odd for a Hector Lavoe album – a mellow reading of Lee Morgan's "Ceora", done with a fair bit of strings on this version. Arrangements are by Jose Febles and Jose Madero – and titles include "El Sabio", "Alejate", "Llore", "Ceora", and "Para Ochun". LP, Vinyl record album

The group here is a sextet, and it features organist Trudy Pitts (who was Martino's boss at the time), plus flute, drums, and percussion – all stretching out with a really unique sort of sound! The tracks have a bit of an Eastern feel to them, especially when Martino stretches out on his solos – but they also have a nice solid groove that keeps them right in the pocket rhythmically.

Don first got his start working on complicated charts for 60s singers and musicians – an early legacy of music that really set him apart, and made Sebesky one of the key forces in taking popular music into much mature territory at the time! By the point of this album, Sebesky's really at the top of his game – an artist with a vision that's complex, but never clunky – able to hang onto the jazz core you'd expect from CTI, while stretching out into these rich modes that really blow away the competition. There's a spooky, soundtrack-like vibe at points – although the album's definitely a jazz set through and through – thanks to horns from the Brecker Brothers and David Sanborn. Joan LaBarbera turns in a bit of nicely eerie vocals – and titles include "Moon Dreams", "Footprints Of The Giant", "Lucky Seven", and "Skyliner". LP, Vinyl record album

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Essential! One wonders why when the original King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown album is so heavy, that you'd want another dub version, but one spin of this special reissue package and you'll be convinced. Altogether different dubs and versions of many of the same rhythm cuts as that watershed dub LP only prove that the whole concept of "versioning", and cutting multiple dubs of the same rhythms (usually to service selectors and sound systems who needed unique tracks) was pure genius on the part of Jamaican producers. Add that to the sheer weight of the rhythms used here, and you've got a formula for a potent set! Once again, the producers at Pressure Sounds have dug up some beautiful gems, finding unique versions of H. Swaby's melodica dancing over thundering Rockers' rhythms and taking a dip now and again in a bucket of reverb & echoplex. Insightful liner notes and a beautiful sleeve complete this package of 17 massive instrumental tracks, including "Black Gunn", "New Style", "El Rockers", "Skanking Easy", "Tribalist" and "Cassava Piece".

One of the most obscure albums ever recorded by Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava – and one of the greatest as well! The set is a rare meeting between Rava and some key players on the Argentine scene of the mid 70s – a great quartet that features Fernando Gelbard on Fender Rhodes, Adalberto Cevasco on bass, Nestor Astarita on drums, and Chango Faras Gomez on percussion – all working with Rava in a groove that's maybe warmer and more soulful than both his spacious and more experimental sides recorded in America and overseas! We always love Gelbard on Rhodes – and his work here really adds a lot to the record – never dominating, but always shaping the sound and forming the rhythm patterns – while Rava soars out with some open, well-placed solos. Titles include "Chico", "Ate Um Dia", "Barco Hasta El Cielo", and "Enrico Seis Octavo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEl Exigente ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from a fantastic period of drummer Chico Hamilton – a time when he'd moved way past the chamber jazz of his 50s years, and even some of his more freewheeling 60s modes on Impulse Records! Here, Chico seems really obsessed with rhythm – to a level where he's not afraid to complicate things, even in search of a groove – working with odd timings and changes that are still pretty groundbreaking, even all these many years later! As with previous records, Hamilton shows a great ear for picking unusual and inventive players – as the set includes Arnie Lawrence doing some incredible work on electric alto sax, and Bob Mann adding in trippy guitar fills that give the tracks a wild stoner feel. Chico's drums are freer than ever – and the album's a real lost gem in the Flying Dutchman mode – with titles that include "Volvos", "Up Front What Counts", "Swingin On A Sitar", "How 'Bout Bobby", "As I Open My Eyes", and "Gonna Get Some Right Now".

Sonus/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album from 60s Brazilian singer Miltinho – one that features vocals in Spanish, not Portuguese – issued by the Sonus label in a pressing that was one of the few by the singer to ever get distribution up in the US! The backings are maybe more 60s Latin than Brazil, too – Afro-Cuban styles of percussion, and often some trumpets in the lead – shimmering and sparkling next to the deep, rich tones of Miltinho's vocals – on titles tha tinclude "Olvidame", "En Carne Propia", "Tu", "Veinte Anos", "El Diablo Y Yo", "Remordimiento", and "Amor Sin Bendicion".

Blossom Dearie/Bobby JasparAdorable Blossom Dearie (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. Used 3CD ... $6.99
A great look at the earliest years of the lovely Blossom Dearie – and a set that also features a surprising amount of work from reedman Bobby Jaspar, who was making big waves on the Paris jazz scene at the same time the young Blossom was living in France! CD1 features the pair together – a lovely set of duos with Bobby on flute and Blossom on piano, pulled from a rare 7" EP – which is then followed by a set of piano instrumentals lead by Dearie, from the album Jazz Sweet – a French-only release! The CD then follows with Blossom's great vocal jazz group The Blues Stars Of France – with tracks from both their first album and their rare EP – great vocal harmony numbers of bebop tunes. CD2 features Blossom's famous self-titled album for Verve – a great American debut – but then follows with lots more rare material, including a Blue Stars 7" single, a rare Dave Lambert & Buddy Stewart 78rpm single, and even other vocal tracks by Annie Ross and King Pleasure. CD3 mostly features material that focuses on the talents of Bobby Jaspar on flute – some under his own leadership, plus more with other artists and groups, including work with singer Helen Merrill, guitarist Rene Thomas, and trombonist JJ Johnson. 75 tracks in all – and a booklet of notes! CD
(CONDITION NOTE: missing the outer box and booklet – just the CDs, each in its own mini LP style sleeve.)

Harpers BizarreCome To The Sunshine – The Complete Warner Brothers Recordings (Feelin Groovy/Anything Goes/Secret Life/Harpers Bizarre 4/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Warner/El (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 38.99
An amazing set – all four of the legendary Warner Brothers albums by harmony giants Harpers Bizarre – plus bonus tracks too! First up is Feelin Groovy – the fab first LP by Harpers Bizarre! The group were one of the strangest pop ensembles operating in the seminal LA scene of the mid 60s – ostensibly a sweet harmony vocal group, but with a strangely childish approach that also had an ear open for the mind-blowing production styles of the Brian Wilson era. Van Dyke Parks was a big supporter of the group – and they perform a sublime version of his tune "Come To The Sunshine" as the leadoff track on the album – and even though Van Dyke didn't handle the arrangements of the record, the style of the music is very similar to his own, with guitar, bass, and drums coming into play with strings, woodwinds, and baroque orchestral touches. The record is as dark as it is sublime – one of those pop gems that hit big, but which has a brooding depth bubbling underneath the sugary coating – ala Pet Sounds. Tracks include "Happy Talk", "The Debutantes Ball", "I Can Hear The Darkness", "Raspberry Rug", and their huge hit version of "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin Groovy)". Next is Anything Goes – the group's second album – and while it has a lot of similarities with the first, it's also a lot deeper of an expression of their strange blend of harmony vocals, sweet 60s pop, and the nostalgia for the early 20th century that was running through the Burbank Warner scene that included a young Van Dyke Parks, Randy Newman, Lenny Waronker, and other LA underground of the mid 60s. The whole record fits together beautifully – beginning with an old-timey radio kind of announcer, then sliding into sublimely crafted harmony tunes that include originals from the LA luminaries and the group, plus a few other surprising covers. Titles include the hit version of "Anything Goes", plus "The Biggest Night Of Her Life", "Milord", "Virginia City", "High Coin", "Jessie", "This Is Only The Beginning", and "You Need A Change". The Secret Life Of Harpers Bizarre is the third album by Harpers Bizarre – and one that shows them growing in leaps and bounds with each new release! The record is a sublime fusion of sweet pop California 60s harmonies (ala The Sandpipers or The Lettermen), baroque arrangements with a fake dreamy nostalgia (ala Van Dyke Parks or Randy Newman), and drug-addled underground takes on the eazy sound of the generation (ala Brian Wilson or Love). This album is one of their most perfectly-realized visions, and it features a great blend of older songs, all hipped-up to modern LA arrangements by the likes of Nick De Caro, Perry Botkin, and others. The record has an approach that's simply mindblowing when you consider the amount of funds and effort that must have been put into a record that would only be truly appreciated 40 years later – and it's filled with great titles that include "Me, Japanese Boy", "Look To The Rainbow", "Funny How Love Can Be", "Mad", "Green Apple Tree", and "Las Mananitas". Last up is the group's fourth album, unfortunately, the last Warner album by Harpers Bizarre – one of the few testaments of genius left to us by this incredible group! The record shows the group moving past the sweet pop and dreamy nostalgia of earlier albums – tentatively stepping into the haze of the late 60s LA scene with a blend of songs that share a lot musically with earlier work, but which also seem to have a more adult approach to some of their themes. Arrangements are by the group mostly – with help from pop geniuses like Jack Nitzsche, Nick De Caro, Lenny Waronker, Harry Nilsson, and Perry Botkin Jr. The harmonies are sublime – and the group effortlessly blends original tunes like "Soft Soundin Music", "All Through The Night", "When The Band Begins To Play", and "There's No Time Like Today, along with bizarre covers like "Hard To Handle", "Something Better", "I Love You Alice B Toklas", and Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To", which is worth the price of the record alone! Bonus tracks include "Both Sides Now", "Small Talk", "Poly High", "If We Ever Needed The Lord Before", "Malibu U", "Cotton Candy Sandman", "Lost My Love Today", and "Bye Bye Bye". CD

Bernard HerrmannFantasy Film World Of Bernard Herrmann ... CD
El (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Most folks know Bernard Herrmann for his famous moody soundtracks for Alfred Hitchcock, or his late life genius on the Taxi Driver score – but Herrmann also had a great ear for more fantastic styles, too – and could turn his dark orchestrations into other cool spacey and watery styles too! This collection brings together the best of that music – work that had an undeniable impact on some of the Italian exotic scoring of the late 50s and early 60s, and which also has a bit more intimacy and character than the American soundtracks for bigger, more epic productions. CD features a total of 31 tracks, with a number of selections each from the films The Day The Earth Stood Still, 7th Voyage Of Sinbad, Ghost & Mrs Muir, Beneath The 12 Mile Reef, and Journey To The Center Of The Earth.

Caterina ValenteHi Fi Nightingale ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $9.99
Surprisingly great early work from Caterina Valente – some of her earliest recordings compiled together, all with a great little sense of zing and swing that we didn't remember! The tracks here are a real range of material – some novelty tracks, some jazz standards, and a number of the sort of "international" numbers that Valente first pushed early on in her career. And while Caterina got pretty stodgy later on, these tracks all have a nice sort of freshness – a lively quality that's plenty playful, but also pretty satisfying on the vocal tip too. CD features 19 tracks from 1954 and 1955 – and provides a great overview of these early years of her career. Titles include "El Mosquito", "Istanbul", "Just You Just Me", "Gespensterblues", "If Hearts Could Talk", "The Breeze & I", "Temptation", "This Ecstasy", "The Way You Love Me", "Malaguena", and "Fiesta Cubana".

Messed up funky blues from drummer Willie Williams – here leading a Chicago group that includes work by Pinetop Perkins, Eddie Taylor, Roy Lee Johnson, Carel Bell, and Little Mack. There's no all-out funk tracks on the record – but it does have a soulful edge overall, especially in some of Willie's heavy-vamping drum work. Titles include "Detroit Blues", "Hot Pants Woman", "Wine Headed Woman", "38 Woman", and "Back To Mississippi". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMountains, Sun, & Sea – The Art Of Antonio Carlos Jobim (4CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $26.99 30.99
A really well-done look at the early music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – one of the most important musical forces of the bossa nova years in Brazil, and an artist who helped set the stage for countless generations to come! The package is overflowing with work from key early albums – and mixes some key pre-bossa moments from Jobim with others that helped define the sound of the new movement at the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s – that mixture of sophistication, gentle rhythms, and thoughtful expression that really made Jobim's music so different than so many of his predecessors. The package features music from both the stage play and the film of Black Orpheus (Orfeu Negro), albums from Joao Gilberto, Elizete Cardoso, Sylvia Telles, Pery Ribeiro, and Lenita Bruno – plus more symphonic and instrumental work by Jobim, and even a selection of his key compositions interpreted by important Brazilian singers!

VariousRevolution In Sound – Pop Culture & The Avant Garde (4CD set) ... CD
El (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $24.99 30.99
A really great idea for a collection – one that brings together postwar modern music in all of its many formats – from avant jazz, to early electronics, to Indian music, 20th Century classical, and even a bit of straighter jazz moments too! The package is very ear-opening – as it offers the chance to hear instrumentalists next to compositional talents that had inspired them – and the collection provides a way to hear different strains of sonic experimentation that were sometimes running parallel to each other, sometimes criss-crossing in strange ways. There's a wealth of musical discoveries throughout – and the 4CD set is overflowing with key cuts from Ornette Coleman, Bela Bartok, Edgard Varese, Daphne Oram, Jean Sibelius, Eric Dolphy, Ravi Shankar, Pierre Henry, John Cate, John Coltrane, Humphrey Searle, Arnold Schoenberg, Bill Evans, Olivier Messiaen, Luigi Nono, Charles Ives, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Bruno Maderna, Julian Bream, and many others.

✨✧ Mel TormeVelvet Moods – Featuring The Original California Suite ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great document of the earliest work of Mel Torme – material recorded in the years before his better-known classics for the Verve and Bethlehem labels! The styles here are often a bit varied – some straight vocals, some harder vocalese and scat, and some warmer harmony numbers sung with his great Mel-Tones group – all delivered with the usual Torme poise and sense of swing, surprisingly well matured even at this early age! The first half of the CD features 16 different numbers done by Mel in a variety of settings – some with Red Norvo and Charles Mingus, and some with the bands of Sonny Burke, Hal Mooney, or Al Pellegrini – titles that include "Born To Be Blue", "That's Where I Came In", "The Carioca", "Geometric Blues", "On A Little Street In Singapore", "I Like To Recognize The Tune", "You're A Heavenly Thing", and "Bernie's Tune". The second half features the very first recording of Mel's classic California Suite – not the better-known version that came out on Bethlehem, but the initial 1949 Capitol Records version – much more obscure, and with some differences in the lyrics and presentation! Hal Mooney conducted, Peggy Lee handles the female vocal parts, and titles include "Miami Waltz", "They Go To San Diego", "The Golden West", "Coney Island", "Got The Gate On The Golden Gate", "Poor Little Extra Girl", and "We Think The West Coast Is The Best Coast".
