Ernie FreemanLive It Up – Adventures In Arranging With The Los Angeles Keyboard King ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Ernie Freeman was one of those cats who seemed as if he could do anything – a great pianist, a heck of an arranger, and a creative force who touched so many different kinds of music on the LA scene of the postwar years! Ernie's name appeared on countless records – his own big hits for the Imperial label, but also a range of other titles by different artists too – a variety of modes that always made Freeman one of those guys that can be tough to peg at a stylistic level – as you'll find his older records filed in the jazz, soul, and rock racks at record stores! This well-done set does a great job of illustrating the diverse talents of Ernie back in the day – filled with tunes that are mostly instrumental, and which step around genres in a great way – 32 titles that include "The Tuttle", "Leaps & Bounds", "Jivin Around", "Puddin", "Junior Jive", "After Sunset", "Summer Serenade", "Shape Up", "Theme From Igor", "Walking The Beat", "Lost Dreams", "Jamboree", "Conquest", "Swamp Meeting", and "Theme From The Dark At The Top Of The Stairs".

✨✧ Danny Dee (Lil Albert)Movin In ... LP
Silver Cloud/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A sweet mellow stepper from Danny Dee, aka Lil Albert – a singer who first got things going in the Hawaiian group Society Of Seven – but who hits some completely different, completely great territory here! The set was recorded in mid 70s LA, with arrangement and production by Ernie Freeman – and Albert's got backing from some of the cream of that scene's studio musicians, who bring some great jazzy touches to the music! There's definitely an ear here towards an AOR approach, but the result is more like the best indie mellow soul of the period – well-produced, but never overdone – nicely understated, in a way that makes the lead vocals sound completely sublime. Titles include "My Girl Friday", "Movin In", "Daydreamin", "Outrageous", "River Of Steel", "Loose Woman", and "Roads". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the excellent Groove Diggers series!)

Julie LondonEnd Of The World (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $18.99
A great set by Julie London, from her maturing years when she was working with arranger Ernie Freeman! The End Of The World follows nicely from Julie's interpretation of the big pop hit of the same name – in territory that's sad and dreamy, but in a different way than her earlier albums on Liberty. There's a nicely boozy quality here to some of the tunes – a more mature mode that's emphasized by Ernie Freeman's backings – which are full, but gentle, and prop up Julie's singing in just the right places. Titles include "The Days Of Wine & Roses", "Our Day Will Come", "Call Me", "I Remember You", "My Coloring Book", "The End Of The World", "Chances Are", and "Desafinado". CD

Julie LondonLatin In A Satin Mood (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet little swinger from Julie London – a record that goes for a bit of a Latin vibe, in ways that change things up nicely – and makes for more of a kick than you'd normally hear on some of the mellower records that were initially London's calling card in the 50s! Ernie Freeman handles the music, so the groove isn't really straight Latin – but more of a syncopated approach that's different from the smoother London sounds on other Liberty albums, topped with some bold trumpet flourishes and marimba bits, too – ala the sounds starting up over at A&M Records! Titles include "Perfida", "Adios", "Vaya Con Dios", "You Belong To My Heart", "Sway", and "Yours". CD

Johnny MathisPeople/Impossible Dream/Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet/Give Me Your Love For Christmas ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Four different albums from Johnny Mathis – all of which have a relatively unique pedigree! First up are the records People and The Impossible Dream – different 1969 albums from Johnny Mathis – both featuring material recorded earlier in the decade, during his time with Mercury Records! Evidently, Mathis got the rights to retain the masters, which he did – and allowed Columbia to issue some of the material on these two albums that offer a great look at the years before Johnny's mature return to the label in the late 60s. Many of the tunes here are mid 60s numbers, mixed with a few standards – and the backings have that quiet burning style that you'd recognize instantly from Mathis' earlier years, in ways that are a bit different than the modes he was then hitting in his new recordings. Strings often figure heavily, with Glenn Osser balancing things out nicely – and titles include "So Nice", "I Will Wait For You", "Laura", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", "More", "Sunny", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "On A Clear Day", "The Very Thought Of You", "Eleanor Rigby", "Go Away Little Girl", and "Moment To Moment". Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet has Johnny Mathis taking on the title tune of the famous film, and also dipping into a mix of other soundtrack numbers from the time – plus a bit of pop material as well! As with other Mathis albums from this stretch, we really love the selection of tunes – penned by Michel Legrand, Francis Lai, Nilsson, and other songwriters we love so much from the generation – writers who really get Johnny past the familiar styles of his early hits. Ernie Freeman did some of the arrangements – which makes for a nice change – and titles include "Live For Life", "Without Her", "Windmills Of Your Mind", "Love Me Tonight", "Didn't We", "We", "The World I Threw Away", and "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In". Last up is Give Me Your Love For Christmas – a late 60s Christmas classic from Johnny Mathis – one that's in a nicely different mode from his earlier album of seasonal songs, and which really shows the way that the maturing Mathis was moving towards a different vibe as the 70s moved in! The tunes here are a good mix of more obscure numbers and well-chosen covers – all delivered with the kind of charm that makes Johnny such a great one to put on the turntable in the month of December – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Give Me Your Love For Christmas", "Do You Hear What I Hear", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "My Favorite Things", "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve", "Calypso Noel", and "Christmas Day".

Frank SinatraThat's Life ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Sweet arrangements from Ernie Freeman – who gives Frank Sinatra that great little bounce that made the title hit, and so many other 60s tunes, so great! Titles include "That's Life", "Sand & Sea", "What Now My Love", "Tell Her", "Give Her Love", and "I Will Wait For You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Julie LondonOur Fair Lady (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet, sophisticated musings from Julie London – a set that has her taking on some of the coolest tunes from the first half of the 60s – including a fair bit of soundtrack themes too! Backings are by Richard Wess and Ernie Freeman, who each have their own distinct flavor – and help give the record a nice sort of balance between mellow and upbeat. There's loads of groovy tunes on the set – and London does a wonderful job with "Theme From A Summer Place", "More", "Never On Sunday", "An Affair To Remember", "Boy On A Dolphin", "The Second Time Around", "Charade", and "Wives & Lovers".

✨✧ Julie LondonWonderful World Of Julie London (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice, mature effort from Julie London – done with a great mix of 60s pop modes and some of the breathier styles of Julie's earlier years – often served up with backings from Ernie Freeman that have a bit of electric bass at the bottom, which helps to step the tunes along with a subtle syncopation that makes for a slightly new direction in London's style. Most tunes are still quite soft and gentle, sung breathily by Julie – and titles include "Can't Get Used To Losing You", "Soft Summer Breeze", "Taste Of Honey", "I'm Coming Back To You", "When Snowflakes Fall In Summer", "I Love You", and "Guilty Heart".

✨✧ Frank SinatraStrangers In The Night ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A key turning point for Frank Sinatra in the 60s – a record that got him firmly back on the charts with a great new sound! The leadoff title cut really sets the pace for the whole thing – a slyly syncopated groover that works perfectly with Sinatra's aging vocals – originally issued as a single, then used here as the cap of a whole album of subtle numbers that are perfect mid 60s Frank at his best! Ernie Freeman and Jimmy Bowen put together the title cut, but Nelson Riddle and Sonny Burke do a great job following the whole thing up – using a nice touch of organ in the mix, and lilting the bottom ever so slightly to swing things past some of the more lush Sinatra modes of years past. Titles include "Strangers In The Night", "Summer Wind", "Call Me", "On A Clear Day", "Downtown", "Yes Sir That's My Baby", "All Or Nothing At All", and "My Baby Just Cares For Me".

✨✧ SupremesBest Of Supremes Christmas Collection – 20th Century Masters ... CD
Motown, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of THE classic Motown Christmas albums of the 60s – a mighty statement of Holiday pride from The Supremes – who are as strong here as on any of their other non-seasonal work from the time! The class and care of the trio really fits the new spirit of Christmas that was emerging in 60s soul music – not the kinds of raw songs about boozing or sadness on the holiday, which were a staple of blues and R&B – but instead these warmly crafted songs of home and hearth, set up perfectly with production by Harvey Fuqua and arrangements from Gene Page, HB Barnum and Ernie Freeman. The whole thing's incredibly soulful – but in a gentle way too – and the set features a dozen holiday numbers including "Silver Bells", "The Little Drummer Boy", "My Christmas Tree", "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", and "Joy To The World". Includes 4 bonus tracks. CD

Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Julie London's early 60s years on Liberty Records – a time when she was changing up her sound a bit, but still staying strong as one of the sexiest vocalists on the west coast scene! Ernie Freeman handles the backing, and he brings in an undercurrent of soul that's mighty nice – some slight blusesy touches at the bottom of the arrangements, and a few occasional horn solos that give the record a nice bite, even when mellow. Titles include "That Sunday That Summer", "Charade", "Night Life", "Wheel Of Fortune", "Since I Fell For You", "Fools Rush In", "I Wish You Love", and a swinging version of "Wives & Lovers"! CD
