Henry ManciniBig Latin Band Of Henry Mancini ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A great little album of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini – played by a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen! The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic – the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, played by a lineup that includes Bud Shank and Tom Scott on reeds, Buddy Childers and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Ray Brown on acoustic bass, Max Bennett on fender bass, Larry Bunker on percussion, and Shelly Manne on drums. The vibe is nice and relaxed – a bit more upbeat than bossa, but not as all-out as other RCA Latin sessions – thanks to Mancini's nice sense of warmth and space in the arrangements. Titles include some pretty darn cool takes on "Mission Impossible", "Fistful Of Dollars", "Magnificent Seven", "Touch Of Evil", and "Springtime For Hitler", from the film The Producers. Other titles include "Patricia", "Zacatecas", and "Las Cruces". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniConcert Sound Of Henry Mancini ... LP
RCA, 1964. Very Good ... $0.99
Henry Mancini takes it to the next level – working with larger orchestrations than usual, in an expansion of his usual 60s groove! The tracks here are all somewhat long – suite-type numbers made up from smaller songs wrapped together in new Mancini arrangements that have a really cool feel in this setting! The orchestra is somewhat large, with strings and woodwinds – but in true Mancini fashion, there's also key solos from players who include Pete Candoli and Conrad Gozzo on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto sax, and Jimmy Rowles on piano. Titles include "Peter Gunn Meets Mr Lucky", "The Music Of David Rose", "Academy Award Selections", and "A Tribute To Victor Young". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniMancini Touch ... LP
RCA, 1959. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Delightful instrumentals – not as jazzy as Mancini's regular soundtrack work, but still pretty nice! The tracks are more in an easy instrumental vein – but given Hank's style, they're still pretty cool, especially as they feature work by west coast jazzmen like Shelly Manne, Victor Feldman, Bob Bain, and Ted Nash. Titles include "Like Young", "Bijou", "That's All", "Snowfall", "Let's Walk", and "Trav'lin Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniMancini's Angels ... LP
RCA, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Mancini does a great job with the theme to Charlie's Angels, and also adds in some cool keyboards you wouldn't have heard on the original – and the rest of the album is a mix of other mid 70s TV themes, plus some cool originals penned by Mancini himself, but with a very similar flavor – often quite funky, in a soundtrack sort of way. Titles include "Charlie's Angels", "Car Wash", "Silver Streak", "Inspector Clouseau Theme", "Gonna Fly Now", "What's Happening", "The Moneychangers", and "Evergreen". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A classic! This is the record that made Mancini's career, and forever transformed the face of crime and jazz. The record's a stunning batch of instrumentals, played by a crack group of west coast players who also performed regularly in the TV show. Titles include the classic "Peter Gunn" theme, plus "Brothers Go To Mothers", "The Floater", "Brief & Breezy", "A Profound Gass", and "Dreamsville". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniPink Panther – Original Soundtrack ... LP
RCA, 1963. Sealed ... $24.99
Sure, you've heard it a million times – but it's still a fantastic soundtrack! Henry Mancini's whimsical scoring is a perfect touch for this classic Peter Sellers film – and it's made even better by the LA group of musicians who play the music – including Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Pete Jolly on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Larry Bunker on percussion – all very groovy players who really know how to make the whole thing sparkle with just the right touches of jazz! The classic "Pink Panther Theme" should be familiar enough to you, but there's loads of other nice numbers – like "Something For Sellers", "Piano & Strings", "The Village Inn", "The Tiber Tiwst", and "Cortina". Lots of jaunty jazz numbers – with clever breakaway solos in the Mancini mode! LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniSometimes A Great Notion ... LP
Decca, 1971. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the more unusual Henry Mancini soundtracks from the classic years – music penned for a film that was also an early directorial effort by Paul Newman! The story's set in logging country in the Pacific Northwest, and Mancini brings in some elements from country music at times – and mixes them with his usual strong ear for melody – an approach that's matured nicely by this time, and sees some expression in ways that are a nice change from the Mancini modes of the 60s! The country elements are underscored by Buddy Emmons on steel guitar and Byron Berline on fiddle – but the music also features harmonica from Tommy Morgan, electric bass from Carol Kaye, and tenor from Plas Johnson – which balances things out nicely. Titles include "Rollin On", "Jobie", "The Stamper Rag", "Lee", "A Lonely Man's Song", and "High On The Pegs". Also features "All His Children" – with vocals by Charlie Pride. LP, Vinyl record album

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 ManciniTwo For The Road ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1967. Used ... $16.99
A wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid, serious feel – mixed with lighter numbers that make for nice mood changers, both on record and in the film. An orchestra is used on most numbers, occasionally with some European touches, given the setting of the movie – and a chorus performs one version of the theme, alongside two other instrumental ones. Titles include "The Chaser", "Something Loose", "Congarocka", "Happy Barefoot Boy", "The Lovely Life", and "The Donk". CD

Henry ManciniWhat Did You Do In The War Daddy? ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not as jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory of the film situates it in Italy, so a fair number of the melodies have slight Italian overtones – including "Sicily Forever", "Gina", "Wine and Women", and "Festa!".

✨✧ Henry ManciniCombo! ... CD
RCA, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A combo session with more than enough excitement to warrant the exclamation point in the title – one of Henry Mancini's jazziest records ever, and a date that's filled with some great west coast players! The sound here is a hip extrapolation of the Mancini groove heard on crime jazz soundtracks like Peter Gunn and Mr Lucky – but it's taken to slightly leaner territory here, with a nice focus on the solo talents of the group members. There's still 11 players in the group – so the combo isn't exactly small – but the spacious Mancini arrangements allow each player to step out nicely with a voice of their own. The lineup includes Pete Candoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto and flute, Art Pepper on clarinet, Ronny Lang on baritone, Bob Bain on guitar, and Larry Bunker on vibes – and Johnny Williams plays both piano and harpsichord, the latter of which sounds plenty darn groovy! Titles include Cy Coleman's wonderful "Playboy's Theme", plus "Castle Rock", "Everybody Blow", "Far East Blues", "Powdered Wig", and "Moanin". CD

RCA, 1968. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". Swingin!

RCA, 1966. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Classic holiday tunes from Henry Mancini! Hank's working in a mellow Holiday mode here – using fuller arrangements than usual for the session – to match the auspicious nature of the event! The first half is in a more popular mode that's in keeping with some of Mancini's themes for soundtracks of the time – working some cheery arrangements of tunes that include "Little Drummer Boy", "The Christmas Song", "White Christmas", and a few holiday medleys. The second half gets a bit more serious, and approaches the spiritual nature with a number of medleys featuring traditional Christmas songs – but also includes the original Mancini number "Carol For Another Christmas". Vocals are featured throughout the album, and solo instrumentation includes Laurindo Almeida on guitar, Pearl Kaufman on harpsichord, and Arthur Gleghorn on flute. LP, Vinyl record album

A double-length collection of work from the great Henry Mancini – both soundtrack and other instrumental titles pulled from his long run of albums for RCA in the 50s and 60s! The package spans the gap from some of Hank's best early crime jazz soundtracks to some late 60s gems that show him working with fuller concepts, but still really holding true to his initial sense of poise, groove, and isolation of key instrumental moments! 20 tracks in all – including "Brothers Go To Mother's", "Snowfall", "Pink Panther Theme", "Lightly Latin", "Midnight Cowboy", "Romeo & Juliet", "Peter Gunn", "Baby Elephant Walk", "Moon River", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Dreamsville", "My Friend Andamo", "March Of The Cue Balls", "Mr Lucky", "Robbin's Nest", and "Softly As I Leave You".

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Explores The Music Of Henry Mancini ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Quincy Jones meets Henry Mancini – and the result is an album that's as groovy as it is jazzy – every bit as wonderful as you might expect, and with a few surprising touches as well! Given that Mancini's tunes are already pretty darn great on their own – and plenty jazzy too – it's amazing to hear Quincy transform them for the record, bringing in some of the styles that would show up even more strongly in his own 60s soundtrack work – clever instrumental twists, occasional electric moments, and a growing sensitivity we never would have expected in his music a decade before. There's loads of lovely reeds – courtesy of Jerome Richardson, Seldon Powell, Zoot Sims, and Roland Kirk – and other players include Gary Burton on vibes, Mundell Lowe on guitar, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Phil Krauss on percussion. Titles include "Baby Elephant Walk", "Charade", "Dreamsville", "Bird Brain", "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Mr Lucky", "Pink Panther", "Moon River", "Peter Gunn", and "Odd Ball". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jack WilsonBrazilian Mancini ... CD
Vault/Essential, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used ... $3.99
New York's a mighty big place, but it's got a nicely intimate feel in this 60s set from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the combo's overlooked gems from their years on Columbia! The music is all from the TV show Mr Broadway, but there's hardly a showtune feel to the set – and instead, the groove is almost in a hip Henry Mancini sort of mode, but delivered with a smaller combo feel. Tracks are somewhat shorter than the usual Brubeck outing, and balanced nicely between upbeat tracks and more sensitive ones – the former with some well-cut lines by Paul Desmond on alto sax, the latter often with a bit more piano from Dave. The rest of the group includes Gene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums – and titles include "Mr Broadway", "Broadway Bossa Nova", "Sixth Sense", "Something To Sing About", "Spring In Central Park", "Lonely Mr Broadway", "Winter Ballad", "Upstage Rhumba", and "Summer On The Sound".

Hoyt Curtain, William Hanna, & Joseph BarberaJohnny Quest ... CD
La La Land, 1964. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99
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!

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

Warner, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A pretty darn groovy soundtrack – one of Neal Hefti's best of the 60s, and the score to a silly sex comedy that starred Natalie Wood and Tony Curtis! Fran Jeffries sings vocals on a few cuts – like "Sex & The Single Girl" and "Anniversary Song" – but the best tunes are the instrumentals, which mix together a lot of electric harpsichord (ala Odd Couple), a bit of flute, and which have a style that's in the mode of the best Quincy Jones or Henry Mancini scoring from the time! Titles include "Legs", "The Game", "Midnight Swim", "City Style", "I Must Know", and "I've Got Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris JossMusic From Man With A Suitcase ... CD
Pulp Flavor (France), 1999. Used ... $9.99
Ostensibly, this is music from a fab British TV show of the 60s – but we think it's actually newer material, souped up with fake notes to make it look old. (Especially since the Brit show was called Man In A Suitcase.) Who cares though? – As the set's actually a great batch of groovy tunes, with a feeling that's very much in keeping with the best 70s cop show themes. The whole album's instrumental – and the overall feel is very similar to Lalo Schifrin or Henry Mancini's funkiest work for films during the 70s. Occasionally, you might hear an instrumental flourish that will identify the music as new – but mostly, the sound is heavy bass, hard drums, electric keyboards, and lots of wah wah guitar. Titles include "The Suitcase", "Geo's Party", "Frisky Frisco", "The Fly", and "At The Disco". CD

Wonderful TV soundtrack work from Skip Martin – who's really giving Henry Mancini a run for his money in the crime jazz department! Martin's score for the Mike Hammer show here is totally great – penned with a range of styles that run from swinging to sentimental – all handled by a top-shelf crew of west coast jazz players that includes Ted Nash on flute and alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Bud Shank on alto, Don Fagerquist and Pete Candoli on trumpet, and Pete Jolly on piano. Titles include "Bad Guys", "Coffee House", "Like Mike", "Summer Mood", "Corn Pone Woman", and "Riff Blues". CD

Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

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

✨✧ Jack McDuffHoneydripper (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the records that put a young Brother Jack McDuff on the map – and a perfect example of the rougher R&B roots that first emerged in his early work on the Hammond! The session's got a much more down-n-dirty feel than some of McDuff's tighter 60s quartet work – and offers a nice bridge between 50s use of the organ in R&B, and the growing soul jazz take on the instrument that McDuff was helping to forge at the time. The group's a real cooker too – with some great work on guitar by a young Grant Green, smoking tenor from Jimmy Forrest, and lyrically dancing drums from the great Ben Dixon. Titles include the great original "Whap!", plus versions of "I Want A Little Girl" and "The Honeydripper" – and an excellent reading of Henry Mancini's "Mr Lucky", virtually worth the price of the record alone!

Atlantic/Collectables, 1967/1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Shelly Manne serves up two hip jazz versions of soundtracks! Jazz Gunn is nice album by Shelly Manne's group from the late 60's – a strong aggregation of players that includes the great Frank Strozier and a young Mike Wofford on piano. The group plays tracks from Henry Mancini's score for the movie Gunn, and although the set sticks fairly close to the score, the sound's nice and jazzy, and the solos really liven the material up. Titles include "Sweet", "A Bluish Bag", "Night Owl", and "A Quiet Happening". Daktari is even better – a groovy batch of short tunes from the TV show of the same name, performed by a larger ensemble that includes Frank Strozier, Bud Shank, Bob Bain, Victor Feldman, and Emil Richards. The tracks have a bit of a jungle/exotic groove to them – in keeping with the African setting of the show – and titles include "Elephantime", "Daktari", 'Out On A Limb", "Africa", "Galloping Girraffes, and "Rhino Trot".

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the usual film themes of the late 50s and early 60s – no James Bond numbers or Henry Mancini hits – and instead, a very cool, very well-selected batch of tracks that really opens up this cinematic generation! All of the numbers stand very well on their own – and the set mixes jazzy groovers with vocal themes and other standout moments from more obscure movies of the time – all to make a really playful, really groovy package that's filled with surprise after surprise all the way through! The music is from both British and American sources – and titles include "No Love For Johnnie" by Gerry Beckles, "A Kind Of Loving" by Ron Grainer, "Live Now Pay Later" by Doug Sheldon, "Payroll" by Reg Owen, "Take A Giant Step" by Ernest Maxin, "I'm A Lonely Man" by Hardy Kruger, "Look For A Star" by Gary Mills, "I'm All Right Jack" by Al Saxon, and "Duet From 16" by John Dankworth.

✨✧ Nelson RiddleRough Cut ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet Nelson Riddle soundtrack for a Burt Reynolds caper film – served up with a style that updates older Riddle modes for the 80s, but with a surprising current of jazz too! The jazzier modes are emphasized by a few older Ellington tunes in the mix – amidst newer Nelson tunes that move between playful melodies, and slinkier jazz numbers – often with the kind of instrumental phrasing that really made Riddle stand out from the pack when he was an arranger for singers, and which seem to have developed here at a level that picks up some of the better Henry Mancini modes of the 60s. The horns – both woodwinds and brass – are fantastic, really superb scoring and performance for the time – and titles include "He Waits", "Osthofen", "Rough Cut", "Something For Gil", "Disco Schmisko", "Chief Inspector Cyril Willis", "Bossa At The Mansion", and "Amsterdam Or Antwerp". CD features 37 tracks in all – including some bonus alternate takes! CD
