Henry ManciniJust You & Me Together Love ... LP
RCA, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
A collaboration with poet John Laws – a project that almost recalls some of the Rod McKuen/Anita Kerr projects of the late 60s, but which has a deeper, more sophisticated Mancini feel! Laws reads his own words, but does so in a subtle, expressive way – often just doing a short passage to start things off, as Hank then follows with some cool soundtrack-styled orchestrations. Most titles are short, but have a really rich feel – and titles include "The Scene Of Your Nearness", "Closer", "Just You & Me Together Love", "Closer", "Empty Glasses Crumpled Sheets", and "The Rhythm Of Wanting".

Henry ManciniMancini '67 ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Henry Mancini in 1967 – a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers, as you'll hear on this sweet set of big band recordings! The format here is much more jazz-based than some of Hank's soundtracks from the time – played with a great group of west coast musicians who include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets; Ronny Lang, Plas Johnson, Harry Klee, and Ted Nash on reeds; Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bob Bain on guitar, and Larry Bunker on vibes – all great players who really have a way of coming together beautifully, then stepping out to bring their own voices strongly to the tunes. And although there's a few soundtrack tunes on the set, most of the compositions are jazz numbers – not penned by Mancini, but definitely given his touch in the arrangements for the date. Titles include "Stockhom Sweetnin", "Tijuana Taxi", "Round Midnight", "The Cat", "Stolen Sweets", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and the great fuzz guitar sounds of "Turtles". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniParty/The Great Race ... CD
BMG, 1965/1968. Used ... $14.99
Two soundtracks on one CD! The Party is a great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry Mancini! The tunes are very groovy – with a few chorus vocal numbers, and some other wonderful tracks that mix together bits of sitar, guitar, and horn blasts – creating a very lively instrumental groove. Plus, the music is played by a tight group of LA jazzmen – with Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Shelly Manne on drums – all musicians who really make things cook! Titles include instrumental and chorus versions of "Nothing To Lose", plus "Chicken Little Was Right", "Birdie Num Num", "Party Poop", "Wiggy", and "Brunette In Yellow". The Great Race is from 1965 – 10 more titles in all! CD

Henry ManciniSunflower – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
An extremely unique Henry Mancini soundtrack – scored for this European film that starred Marcello Mastroianni and Ingrid Bergman – with a sound that's almost in a similar mood to the work of Ennio Morricone from the same time! Most of the tracks are fairly dark and moody – with simple themes running through them, handled by spare strings, augmented by bits of instrumentation on guitar or melodica – really nice touches, and that same sense of restraint that Henry Mancini was bringing to some of his own instrumental albums of the early 70s. The overall sound is quite compelling – if less groovy than most of Mancini's more famous work from the 60s. Titles include "Two Girls", "The Retreat", "Invitation", "Love Theme From Sunflower", and "Giovanna". CD features lots of bonus tracks in mono – 19 more numbers that include film versions from the score, and a demo of "Loss Of Love", and a piano demo of "Love Theme From Sunflower". CD

Henry ManciniTheme from Z & Other Film Music ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, but still have a nice sort of focus – and include solos by players like Mancini on piano, Jimmy Rowles on electric calliope, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto, and Art Smith on recorder. Some of the best tracks have a groovy feel that really fits the date of the record, while others have a more traditional soundtrack approach – and tunes include "Theme From Z", "Airport Love Theme", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", "A Man A Horse A Gun", "Patton Theme", and Jobim's "Love Theme From The Adventurers".

Henry ManciniUniquely Mancini ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1963. Used ... $18.99
Uniquely Mancini work from the great Henry – a sweet set of early 60s work for RCA, done with a harder jazz style than some of his other work of the time! Mancini's group is filled with west coast jazzmen – working under tight leadership to craft some tracks with a bold, sort of flourish that draws strongly from the late 50s crime jazz styles of Mancini, but which also shows some of his more complicated scoring modes of the 60s. Many tunes are standards, but given a vibrant new swing here – and those are offset by a few especially nice originals composed by Hank, such as "Lonesome", "Cheers", and "Banzai Pipeline". Players include Plas Johnson and Gene Cipriano on flute and tenor, Larry Bunker on vibes and marimba, Bob Bain on guitar, and Pete and Conte Candoli on trumpets – and titles include "Green Onions", "Night Train", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "C Jam Blues", "The Hot Canary", and "Moonlight Serenade".

✨✧ Henry ManciniMusic Of Hawaii ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly nice little record by Henry Mancini – one that's quite different than other albums of Hawaiian tunes! The record is much more a soundtrack than anything else – slightly exotic soundscapes arranged by Hank, and featuring the Baldwin harpsichord on many tunes. That instrument's not really one we'd associate with Hawaii, which is why we dig the record so much – and it gives the whole thing a really spooky feel, especially as odd instruments and voices drift into the mix. Titles include "Quiet Village", "The Moon Of Manakoora", "Pearly Shells", "Driftwood & Dreams", "Tiny Bubbles", and "Beyond The Reef". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Henry ManciniThief Who Came To Dinner ... LP
Warner, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A keyboard classic from Henry Mancini – and one of his greatest soundtracks ever! The album's far far different than most of Mancini's other work – a stripped-down, slow-funk batch of tracks that mix together keyboards and organ, riffing out over rhythm and strings, in a mode that would make Quincy Jones weep! The main theme is a stunner – and it rolls out again and again in different versions with a nice moogy bit behind it, sounding almost like an Italian soundtrack tune – but with a lot more spacey soul! The rest of the soundtrack follows suit – sliding forward in a brilliantly slinky way – all without any common cliches of the time, and an amazingly balanced groove. Titles include "Tail Gate", "Jackie's Theme", "Dog Eat Dog", "Theme From Thief Who Came To Dinner", "Getaway", and "First Job". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Henry ManciniTouch Of Evil ... CD
Varese, 1958/1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the darkest, most dramatic Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 50s – music penned for Orson Welles' Touch Of Evil, with a history as checkered as the film itself! Mancini's in his best early mode here – mixing bits of jazz with touches of rock and roll – and often hitting some brooding moments at times too, especially during the tenser parts of the narrative. Players in the group include a horde of west coast jazzmen – including Red Norvo on vibes, Pete Candoli on trumpet, Plas Johnson on tenor, and Jack Costanzo on bongos – all of whom get some nice licks in on the set!

✨✧ Henry ManciniVersatile Henry Mancini (aka Driftwood & Dreams) ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever album from Henry Mancini – and a wonderfully spooky set! The style here is quite different than most of Hank's better-known film work and instrumental hits – as the record is very moody and laidback – cut with a slow-moving, dreamy sort of darkness that's really compelling! The instrumentation is very unusual – a mix of organ, accordion, and guitar by Laurindo Almeida – all stepped gently along with some spare electric bass bits by Bob Bain, who really knows how to preserve a sense of space in the set. There's a bit of wordless vocals from the lovely Lulu Jean Norman – almost in modes that would show up later in Italian soundtracks – and although there's a bit of an exotica feel to the record, it's very slight, given the lack of any percussion or drums – and instead comes off with a very spooky dream-like quality. Titles include "Bali Hai", "Poinciana", "The Whispering Sea", "Ebb Tide", and "The Naked Sea". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/BMG, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Henry Mancini's second album of stuff for the Peter Gunn TV show, and arguably better than the first one! The album's straight-ahead crime jazz – performed by a great set of players that includes Plas Johnson, Shelly Manne, Ted Nash, Paul Horn, and other west coasters. Tracks include "My Manne Shelly", "Timothy", "Goofin At The Coffee House", "Odd Ball", "Walkin' Bass", and "Spook!". CD

Jack WilsonBrazilian Mancini ... CD
Vault/Essential, 1965. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A wonderful combination of talents – and a great idea for an album! The great LA pianist Jack Wilson is working here with his group that includes Roy Ayers on vibes – and they've got some extra backing from Brazilian players Chico Batera and Sebastiao Neto on percussion, plus "Tony Brazil" on guitar – a name that we're guessing might stand in for a much more famous player! The tunes have that wonderful lyrical vibe that Wilson and Ayers created together – but set to the magic of Henry Mancini – whose tunes are not just a perfect fit for Wilson's ideas on the keys, but which also really take off here in some very different ways. The set's got a completely sublime version of "Sally's Tomato" – and other titles include "Dear Heart", "Blue Satin", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Night Flower", "Lujon", "Mr Lucky", and "Softly". CD

Ray Dugan/Billy Mann/Bob HunterInstrumental Gold Vol 1 ... CD
Olympus/Essential, 1977. Used ... $4.99
The cover's a little bit cheesy, but the music inside is mighty nice – an American take on 70s sound library modes, but wrapped around a host of familiar tunes you might also know from both TV and the charts of the time! There's two major groups here – the orchestras of Ray Dugan and Billy Mann – plus one more track from Bob Hunter – and although we know very little about any of them, we can say that the whole thing has a vibe that's very much in the best 70s easy mode, like some of the mid 70s Henry Mancini albums for RCA! Titles include "Good The Bad & The Ugly", "Popcorn", "Theme From SWAT", "Rockford Files", "Walk Don't Run", "Telstar", and "Walk In The Black Forest". CD

✨✧ Orequestra Los DanserosLos Danseros En Bolero ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
A record we'd love to know more about – because the sound and presentation is so amazing! The set brings a bossa vibe to a mixture of American jazz and soundtrack tunes – often folding two tracks into one performance, and couching the melodies in some fuller strings and lighter, lively rhythms – with a quality that almost feels a bit like Henry Mancini taking on bossa nova material – or maybe like some of the fuller arrangements done by the young Deodato at the time! No surprise, there's some great Mancini numbers in the mix – along with other cool tunes too – served up with instrumentation that often has some rootsier percussion on the bottom, which blends in a great way with the larger charts – on titles that include "So In Love/Echo Of Love", "Sally's Tomato/Teach Me Tonight", "Mr Lucky/Speak Low", "Just For Tonight/Moon River", "Dansero/The Misfits", "Oba La La/La Puerta", and "Fly Me To The Moon/Our Day Will Come".

✨✧ Shelly Manne & His MenJazz Gunn ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Shelly Manne scored big with a jazz version of the Peter Gunn soundtrack in the 50s – and he does it again in this 60s version of Henry Mancini's music for the full-length Gunn movie! The style here is a bit more far-reaching and looser than before – showing not just Manne's development as an artist, but also his ear for some of the best styles of the younger generation – as evidenced by his inclusion of Frank Strozier on alto and flute, and Mike Wofford on piano – alongside more familiar faces Monte Budwig on bass and Conte Candoli on trumpet. There's a crisp jazzy edge to the whole thing – and titles include "Sweet", "A Bluish Bag", "Night Owl", and "A Quiet Happening". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hoyt Curtain, William Hanna, & Joseph BarberaJohnny Quest ... CD
La La Land, 1964. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Music from an ultra-cool kid cartoon of the 60s – sounding almost better here away from the screen than it did in the TV show! The main theme of Johnny Quest has a great current of mod jazz, and there's a fair bit of that on some of the other tracks too – modes that usually feature a larger ensemble with great horn work, in a style that's maybe almost the sound that you'd get if Henry Mancini were scoring a cartoon – with all the richness of color that might imply! Other tracks are more scene-setters, but still quite far from the usual modes for a cartoon – and although the music's credited partly to the show's creators, the Hanna-Barbera team, we're guessing the real genius comes from the music direction of Hoyt Curtain and Ted Nichols. 2CD set features material from a number of different shows – including "Dragons Of Ashida", "The Robot Spy", "Arctic Splashdown", "Calcutta Adventure", "Treasure Of The Temple", "Attack Of The Tree People", "Terror Island", "The Mystery Of The Lizard Men", and "The Curse Of Anubis" – plus other shows too, the main themes, and even some bonus tracks!

✨✧ Ray Davies & The Button Down BrassThemes From The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting, & Other Great Films/Flashpoint ... CD
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD
