Dave Grusin, David Shire, Lalo Schifrin, & OthersQuinn Martin Collection Vol 1 – Cop & Detective Series (Barnaby Jones/Dan August/Most Wanted/Cannon) ... CD
La La Land, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
A motherlode of cop and crime soundtracks from the 70s – none of which have ever been commercially released before! All the music here comes from the mighty holdings of Quinn Martin Productions – the wellspring of so many great hour-long TV detective shows in the 70s – often well-penned dramas that were really a cut above the usual! The company's approach was always pretty top-shelf – and that included the music, too – which was often scored in superb ways, especially considering that in the pre-DVD days, many of these shows would only get seen once or twice. There's a quality level here that matches most widely-circulated 70s cop soundtracks from the cinematic world – and many of the composers are of the same caliber, too – with material that includes 18 tracks for two Dan August episodes by Dave Grusin, 15 more tracks by Lalo Schifrin for an episode of Most Wanted, 15 tracks for Barnaby Jones by Jerry Goldsmith, 20 tracks for two episodes of Cannon by John Parker, and more material by Duane Tatro, Nelson Riddle, Patrick Williams, David Shire, and Bruce Broughton.

Audio Fidelity, 1962. Near Mint- ... $23.99
Early set of tight bossa grooves, recorded by Lalo Schifrin not too longer after he arrived in the states in the early 60's. The great Leo Wright's on alto and flute here, and his solos are warm and rich, and make the whole thing come together nicely – with lots of jazz, jazz, jazz! Lots of short bossa tracks, including "Boato", "Bossa Em New York", and "Patinho Feio". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinCaveman ... CD
Aleph, 1980. Used ... $8.99
A phenomenally terrible monstrosity of a movie – with a surprisingly groovy score by the great Lalo Schifrin! Do we need to tell you that Lalo goes way above the call of duty on this one? It's a very sweeping set, with booming brass and strings, ominous orchestral movements, and possibly best of all, a tribal tilt to the percussion – with some really sweet moments! It's way more sophisticated than you'd expect from a movie that starred Ringo and giant piles of dinosaur poop! Titles include "Caveman (main title)", "The Kissing Plant", "The Horn Lizard", "Tyrannosaurus Rex", "Homo Erectus", "Pterodactyl", "William Tell Overture", "March Of The Caveman" and "Prehistoric Dance".

Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Cuts include "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinNunzio ... CD
MCA/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy ... $24.99
A really unusual soundtrack from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – and one that seems to show off all of his best modes in its shifting range of styles! The film is a somewhat understated story set on the streets of New York – and the music often takes on the same sort of vibe – with some beautiful melodic passages that are quite different than Lalo's big hits of the 60s. But then there's also some beautiful orchestra moments too – with these arrangements that are complicated, yet sparkling – that sophisticated charm that always put Schifrin ahead of the pack! And then Lalo even opens up with a few funkier tracks that recall his electric jazz albums of the late 70s for the CTI label – fuller groovers that are showcased on the two longest tracks – "Hey Nunzio" and "Candy Store Frenzy". Other titles include "Sad Nunzio", "Superspeed", "To The Rescue", "Only A Memory", "Nunzio In Love", "Goodnights My Little One", and "Flying Love". CD

It's got a very cool organ-driven keyboard sound, tight jazzy arrangements, and a great set of themes like "Once a Thief", "The Cat", "The Man From Thrush", and "Blues a Go Go". Very swingin', very cool, and recorded before he laid down Mission Impossible and Bullitt. Cool gatefold cover, too, with a nice shot of Lalo smoking a pipe! LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On ... LP
Dot, 1968. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and hip than even the best of Schifrin's soundtrack work from the 60s! Some tunes certainly show the deft talent for arranging woodwinds and rhythms that first caught the ears of so many listeners on famous soundtracks – but in the setting of this record, away from any directorial needs, Lalo's also free to explore some groovier music ideas – and he really lets loose tremendously as the set rolls on! The titles alone should tell you the feel of the record – with names like "Secret Code", "Dissolving", "Vaccinated Mushrooms", "Wheat Germ Landscapes", and "How To Open at Will The Most Beautiful Window".

Lalo SchifrinTHX 1138 – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1971. Used ... $29.99
Great stuff from Lalo Schifrin – his under appreciated score for young George Luca's paranoid sci fi thriller! THX 1138 has that sort of Ayn Rand, clean-clothed tyrannical government thing going on, and Lalo's score couldn't be more haunting and perfect! It's full of stark, clean kinda chamber orch sounds to go with the oppressively sterile threat in the film – but it's full of those groovy, moddish touches that make Lalo's work from the era so amazing! Tracks include "Be Happy", "Loneliness Sequence", "You Have Nowhere To Go", "First Escape" and more. CD

Lalo Schifrin & Bob BrookmeyerSamba Para Dos ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions!

Lalo Schifrin/Leonard RosenmanTelefon/Hide In Plain Sight ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1977/1980. Used ... $14.99
Two late 70s thriller soundtracks – back to back in a mighty sweet package! First up is Lalo Schifrin's score for the tense Charles Bronson thriller Telefon – music we've never seen on an original LP, put forward here in brilliantly remastered sound! Many numbers are quite tense – the darker side of the Schifrin spectrum – the moodier styles you'll remember from some of his more famous cop and crime soundtracks from years back – with spare, suspended strings interwoven with gentle woodwind bits on many numbers. Titles include "Remember Nikulin", "KGB Headquarters", "Lucky Girl", "Callender", "The Woods Are Lovely/The Purse", "After The Explosion", and "If That Is So". Hide In Plain Sight is a lesser-known score from Leonard Rosenman, but one that really fits the mood of the Schifrin music – dramatic, but without ever being too much so – and balanced at times by a few sweeter moments, too. Titles include "Tom Hides", "Finale", "Let's Go", "Followed On The Freeway", and "Untouchables". Comes with the usual great Film Score notes, images, and packaging! CD

CTI, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky 70s work from film score maestro Lalo Schifrin – served up with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time! Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound over the top of the funky arrangements – and there's plenty of nice guitar work – either by Eric Gale or John Tropea – which gives the cuts some nice choppy funky bits that drive them a bit harder than you might expect! Titles include an amazing funk remake of "Quiet Village", plus "Dragonfly", "Black Widow", "Baia", "Turning Point", and a version of the "Jaws" theme! LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzclub (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest cats of the 60s – heard here in an amazing array of jazz, bossa, and soundtrack recordings! Lalo Schifrin first rose to fame working in the group of Dizzy Gillespie, but by the time of these sides he was already stepping out strongly on his own – as one of the freshest voices in 60s jazz, both a writer and player whose music forever transformed the sound of his generation! Schifrin's music is often heavy on bossa influences, but quickly steps into soul as well – mixing the best elements of both genres in search of the hippest sort of groove – the sort best known from his famous soundtracks, but which is heard here in an array of wonderful Verve sides from the 60s. CD features 18 tracks in all – including "How To Open At Will The Most Beautiful Window", "Machinations", "Lalo's Bossa Nova", "Secret Code", "The Man From Thrush", "The Wave", "Mannix", "Dissolving", "Agnus Dei", "Bossa Antique", "Prelude #2", and "Silvia" – plus "Theme From Joy House", recorded with Jimmy Smith, and "The Fakir", with Cal Tjader.

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinRock Requiem ... LP
Verve, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bizarrely baroque session – one that's a requiem "for the dead in the Southeast Asia war", and which takes the form of a hippy-dippy mass. Lalo's at the head of the group – leading musical performances by the likes of Tom Scott, King Errison, Mike Melvoin, Howard Roberts, Dennis Budimir, Emil Richards, and other LA studio hipsters, as well as a vocal performance by the Mike Curb Congregation, and lead singer Alexander Saint Charles. The whole thing's a lot more gospel hip than rock, and it's really a lot more like the kind of album you'd catch Galt MacDermot or David Axelrod recording than Schifrin. Titles include "Final Prayer", "Offertory Verse", "Sanctus Benedictus", "Agnus Dei", and "Introit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinWrath Of God ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Robert Mitchum as a cigar-smoking priest who totes a machine gun – the cover here is almost enough to make us buy the album, but the music is even better! The soundtrack is a later MGM score by Lalo Schifrin – penned for a slightly comedic action film set in Central America, and done with a fair bit of Latin touches in the instrumentation. Elements of a variety of different Latin modes trickle through more standard soundtrack work from Lalo – jazzy at times, more serious at others – but almost always served up with groovy touches that make this one especially appealing to our ears. There's some nice snakey flutes that slide through some of the bigger backings – and sparer tracks are often heavy on percussion – making for a nice blend of moods that serves up a freshly sounding track with nearly every entry on the album! CD features 23 tracks in all – including 2 bonus tracks – and titles include "Chela/Tacho", "Wrath Of God", "Mascaras", "Plegaria", "Jurado", "Nacho", "Musicos", "Emmet", "La Iglesia", "Campanas", and "La Confesion".

Luiz BonfaComposer Of Black Orpheus Plays & Sings Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the earliest of the classic Verve bossa nova sessions of the 60s – and a wonderful showcase for the talents of guitarist Luiz Bonfa! Most of Bonfa's previous recordings were done in a very spare or solo mode – and this set makes a nice change by adding in some larger orchestrations – yet still handled with great bossa sensitivity by Oscar Castro Neves and Lalo Schifrin – themselves very big up-and-coming talents at the time! The sound is bright and breezy, as you'd expect from Verve at this time – and Bonfa's a lot livelier than usual, and even sings on a number of cuts – with a charming quality that's a bit like Joao Gilberto. Titles include "Bossa Nova Cha Cha", "Sambalamento", "Vem So", "Samba De Duas Notas", "Domingo A Noite", "Quebra Mar", and "Adeus". LP, Vinyl record album

The main title is an incredible blend of Eastern percussion and moody jazz – and other cuts bring in some trippier elements, mixed with funkier bits and warmer moments – all at a level that have Budd even outdoing the best late 60s work by Lalo Schifrin! The keyboards are often at the forefront – either acoustic or electric – and the album's got so many groovy grooves, with such variety, it's got a feel that's much richer than the usual soundtrack set. Titles include "Love Is A Four Letter Word", "Carter Takes A Train", "Looking For Someone", "The Girl In The Car", "Livin Should Be This Way", "Manhunt", "Goodbye Carter", and "Hallucinations". CD

Eric DolphyVintage Dolphy ... LP
GM Recordings, 1962/1963. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Some of the most striking Eric Dolphy work we've ever heard – a set of live performances from the years 1962 and 1962 that feature Dolphy in a free-thinking mode that surpasses even the modernism of his classic studio sides! The recordings feature Dolphy amidst a variety of players – including a number of unlikely suspects like Barry Galbraith, Eddie Costa, and Jim Hall – and although some of the tracks have a moody and introspective third stream quality (3 of the numbers are written by Gunther Schuller), others are quite open, and almost have an ESP-like intensity. One longer title is a jam session take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee" – recorded with a lineup that includes Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Benny Golson, Don Ellis, and Lalo Schifrin! Other titles include "Iron Man", "Half Note Triplets", "Densities", and "Night Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Early 60s/1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Nice 2LP set that brings together some of his most striking sessions of the early 60s recorded for Emarcy. This set includes pieces composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin played by a large ensemble led by Benny Carter – with Dizzy as the main soloist, and work by players that include James Moody, Phil Woods, Emil Richards, Francisco Aguabella, and Schifrin himself. Tracks are long, and have complicated introductions – then easily give way to the sort of flowing grooves that Schifrin was penning often at the time. Titles include "The Conquerors", "The Chains", "The Swords", "The Empire", and "The Legend Of Atlantis". The set also features Diz playing tracks from Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After". Also included are songs from the soundtrack for the lost Shirley Clarke verite drama The Cool World. Mal Waldron wrote the material for the score, and Diz plays the music with a moody emotionality that you don't often hear in his other 60's work. The recording was made by his great group that included Kenny Barron and James Moody, and the titles include "The Pushers", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", and "Street Music".

It may have been recorded on the French Riviera – but the session's actually a killer batch of Latiny tinged tracks from Dizzy & Co – with with great arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More Blues" to start it out, and it's got a great loping Latin vibe, in the manner of Dizzy's best sides from the 60s. Lalo's on piano, and the great Leo Wright is on flute and alto, with Tzigane Elek Bacsik on guitar, Chris White on bass, Ruby Collins on drums and Pepitoo Riestria on percussion. Other nice ones include "Long Long Summer", "Desafinado", and "Pau De Arara". A great album, and one not to pass up! CD

Verve, 1959. Used ... $11.99
Diz breaks past his bop playing, takes a bit of a turn towards swing-based material, and also hits this nice rolling groove that gives a bit of a peek at the way he'd sound in the 60's, when he had Lalo Schifrin on piano, and more of a Latin sound. He's backed here by Junior Mance on piano, Les Spann on flute and guitar, Sam Jones on bass, and Lex Humphries on drums. Given the soul jazz leanings of the group, the set's a lot hipper than you'd expect from Verve at the time, and is certainly worthy of the use of the word "excite" in the title. The tracks are all standards, but the group grooves openly, and makes a heck of a lot out of the material. Titles include "My Man", "St. Louis Blues", and "Woody'n You".

Impulse, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

Dizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of ParisDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma".

As the title might make you guess, the album's kind of a "jazz mass", and replicates the Kyrie, Gloria, and Offertory progression of a regular Catholic mass. The whole thing might be pretty snoozy, but it's fortunately saved by some nice playing by Horn, and by groovy elements in Schifrin's arrangements, particularly the percussion playing of Emil Richards and Milt Holland.

Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall".

The main instrumental theme is kind of a remake of the Fists Of Fury theme – but the album's also got some great other groovy bits that are sort of in a Roy Budd mode, with some excellent funky orchestrations that are very nice! Plus, there's a good blend of dialogue with the music – but not so much that it gets in the way, either.

Gap MangioneSing Along Junk ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A strange little record – but a nice one! The set's halfway between funky jazz and easy soundtrack grooves – Gap leading the group and handling the arrangements with a bit of help from young brother Chuck. Players include Steve Dadd on drums, John Faddis on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, Joe Farrell on reeds, and Jerome Richardson on saxes – and Gap plays piano, electric piano, and organ, in a floating groovy mode that recalls the best soundtrack moments from Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones. Titles include the famously sampled "Diana In The Autumn Wind", "Sing Along Junk", "Theme From The Burglars", "Pond With Swans", "Ardis", "Long Hair Soulful", and "Pina Colada".

Leo WrightBlues Shout ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $24.99
A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect example of the lyricism and Latin influences he'd picked up from Lalo, mixed with the soulful expression that was common for Dizzy's combos in the 60s. Leo plays flute on about half the record, and he's working with soulful modern players that include Richard Williams, Charlie Persip, Art Davis, and Junior Mance. Titles include "Two Moods", "Blues Shout", "Sigi", "Indian Summer", "Autumn Leaves", and "The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and purple label pressing, including the Atlantic inner sleeve.)

Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the Stan Getz sound of the 60s – an album that features Stan blowing in front of some beautiful backdrops set by Lalo Schifrin and Claus Ogerman! The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory lines that sweep and swirl with his best 60s work. The sound is incredible – a whole new level of genius to a player who'd already recorded in so many other strong modes at the time – and titles include "Sleeping Bee", "Nitetime Street", "Early Autumn", "Charade", "Love", and "Reflections".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie & His Quintet En Concert – Olympia 24 Novembre 1965 ... CD
Europe 1/RTE, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Outstanding Dizzy Gillespie material – from one of his most overlooked periods! The time is the mid 60s, and after a few years of working with Lalo Schifrin in his group, Dizzy's changed his Latin bag from hard-edged Cubop to mellower more complicated Bossa and modal jazz. The result is some of the most sophisticated playing in Dizzy's career – hitched to a groove that's still filled with soul and fire, and which rolls on in a compelling way that always hooks us hard! The group features Kenny Barron on piano, and reed work by James Moody, one of the other great secrets of the mid 60s! Tracks are all long – and titles include "One Note Samba", "Con Alma", "Umh, Umh", and "Chega De Saudade". CD

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieSwing Low, Sweet Cadillac ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

✨✧ Mustafa OzkentGenclik Ile Elele (Hand In Hand With Youth) ... LP
Jackpot, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s! Like Lalo, Mustafa had a great ear for mixing funkier rhythms and fuller orchestrations – often with odd instrumental twists and turns that bubble over with a fair bit of electricity over heavy percussion – kind of in an Incredible Bongo Band way, but with some moogier touches overall! The record's an instrumental masterpiece through and through – filled with enough heavy breaks to satisfy even the pickiest crate-digger, but also the more complicated arrangements to appeal to fans of funky 70s soundtracks! Titles include "Uskudar", "Burcak", "Dolana", "Carsamba", "Lorke", "Ayas", "Emmioglu", and "Karadir". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Douglas (France), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dizzy Gillespie caught live at Monterey – recorded with a great group during one of our favorite stretches in his career! The combo's kind of a post-Lalo Schifrin quintet, but still shares plenty of the bossa-inspired elements of his tenure with Diz – long tracks, bits of Latin rhythms, and a hip swing that's just right for the 60s! James Moody's in the group on alto, flute, and tenor, Kenny Barron plays piano, Chris White is on bass, and Rudy Collins is on drums – and Jon Hendricks joins the group on vocals for one cut too! Titles include "Morning Of The Carnival", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Vote Dizzy", "Desafinado", "No More Blues", and "The Cup Bearers". CD

✨✧ Morton StevensHawaii Five-O ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
If Hawaii was this funky, we'd move there in a minute – and honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if this record did a heck of a lot for the image of state back in the day! The soundtrack is one of our all-time favorites – a driving batch of larger orchestrations that is heavy on percussion, filled with jazzy riffs, and which makes great use of electric bass to round out the bottom nicely! Mort Stevens goes way beyond the typical cop show groove on this one – filling up the record with rich colors, unique tones, and some great inflections on the horn passages that charge each tune with a mad level of excitement. There's some great instrumental touches in the set too – like occasional fuzzed-out guitar, Hammond organ, and even a bit of sweet flute and soulful sax – giving the whole thing a feel that reminds us of Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. Includes the massive "Hawaii Five-O" theme, plus the cuts "Call To Danger", "Up Tight", "Blues Trip", "The Long Wait", "The Floater", "Beach Trip", "Operation Smash", "McGarrett's Theme", and "Front Street".

✨✧ Armando Trovajoli/I Cantori Moderni7 Volte 7 – Original Soundtrack (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (South Korea), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin – on upbeat tunes that are very cool, with a mod 60s style throughout! The whole thing swings mightily – and kind of feels like what might have happened if the Swingle Singers ever recorded with Lalo Schifrin – his best jazz-infused instrumentation, and their wonderfully dynamic vocal approach. Titles include "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Big Brain", "Jail", and "Seven Times Seven". LP, Vinyl record album

Chappell/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dramatic music, but pretty darn groovy music as well – served up here in a set of work from the under-reissued Chappell sound library in the UK! The work here is full of jazzy currents, but often set to tight larger arrangements that have all the best appeal of the sorts of soundtrack material you'd get in 70s TV work – really appealing themes mixed with sharper action moments – served up in this wonderful blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation that easily rivals the best soundtrack material from the time by folks like Lalo Schifrin or Henry Mancini! We'd not heard most of these tunes before, and every one's a winner – in a set list of 23 tracks that include "Sky Diver" by Lee Mason, "The Bright Lights" by Roger Webb, "Countdown" by Cy Payne, "Magazine" by Jack Arel, "Rainbow Bridge" by Roger Webb, "The Sun Seekers" by James Clarke, "Top Gear" by Lee Mason, "Black Fire" by Cy Payne, "Downtown Incident" by Roger Webb, "Black Shadow" by Pete Moore, "Breakaway" by Tony Osborne, and "The Hustlers" by Roger Webb.

A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful vocal cuts recorded by the label and it's partner imprint, Kudu – and over the course of the 25 tracks on the extended collection, you'll not only hear a great evolution in grooves for the 70s generation – but also a fair bit of tracks that have gone onto new lives as sample cuts too!
