Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWhen I Was Young – The MGM Recordings 1967/1968 (Winds Of Change/Twain Shall Meet/Everyone Of Us/Love Is/bonus tracks) (5CD set) ... CD
MGM/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 65.99
A fantastic package of work from The Animals – all their great second chapter albums for MGM, offered up here with bonus tracks too! First up is Winds Of Change, presented in both stereo and mono mixes – one of The Animals' most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer around the drums that really spaces things out, and almost gives a Velvets sort of feel to the proceedings. The group's bluesier roots are still in place at times – but these have also been tripped-out and abstracted too, in modes that are a few years ahead of other blues rock combos on the rise. Titles include "It's All Meat", "Winds Of Change", "Poem By The Sea", "Yes I Am Experienced", "Hotel Hell", "San Franciscan Nights", and "Man Woman". Next is Twain Shall Meet – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". Every One Of Us is a real gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". Next is Love Is – a fantastic double-length set from The Animals – recorded in LA in the late 60s, and with plenty of great Sunset Strip influences in the mix! The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". Bonus tracks include "Monterey (mono single)", "White Houses (single stereo)", "Anything (single)", "Gratefully Dead", "Ain't That So", "When I was Young", "A Girl Named Sandoz", "River Deep Mountain High (single stereo)", and "Sky Pilot (parts 1 & 2)", CD

Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 19.99
Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

Billie HolidayBillie Holiday (MGM) (aka Last Recordings) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM (Japan), 1959. Used ... $14.99
Billie Holiday's last recording – and a really beautiful little set that's a perfect cap to her all-too-short career! The album's got a style that's similar to the better-known Lady In Satin album – with backings from Ray Ellis that are a bit more lush than those used during the Verve years, but which also provide some much-needed focus to the music too – a quality that's still strongly jazz-based, but almost seem to refresh Holiday's singing a bit. Make no mistake, Billie's definitely in her later years here – but that also makes for an instantly heartbreaking quality too – a mode that's distinctly Holiday all the way through, with echoes of her hardship throughout most of the tunes. Soloists include Gene Quill on alto, Sweets Edison on trumpet, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone – and titles include "All The Way", "Don't Worry 'Bout Me", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Deed I Do", and "All Of You".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 20.99
MGM Records was mostly a pop label during the 50s – but the company was also home to Hank Williams, and had a great ear for hillbilly and country artists too – which led to the surprisingly strong streak of rockabilly numbers that you'll hear in this set! Only a few of these artists ended up as bigger names at the time – and most are the sort that were recorded briefly for a company like MGM – given some top-shelf treatment in the studio, but no promotion out in the world – leaving rare nuggets like this to only get properly discovered by a collection like this! The package is another great feather in the cap of this fantastic long-running series – one that's only seemed to dig deeper and get better as the years move on – as you'll hear in the set list of 32 tracks that include "We've Got Some Dreaming To Do" by Rita Faye, "Shake My Hand" by Jack Turner, "Bandstand Baby" by Jan & Jerry, "The Customary Thing" by Johnny Rivers, "Makin Up With You" by Gary Walker, "Doin My Time" by Bill Flagg, "Runaway Heart" by Gary Walker, "Doubt" by George McCormick, "I Ain't Gonna Waste My Time" by Don Gibson, "Rockin Piano Outta Tune Guitar" by Don Ruby, "Teen Age Rebel" by Arthur Smith, "Troubles" by Billy Jack Willis, "I Didn't Mean It" by Rocky Scott, and "Wicked" by Ronnie Isle & The Blisters.

AB SkhyAB Skhy ... LP
MGM, 1969. Very Good+ ... $11.99
AB Skhy are one of those totally great late 60s groups who never fully got their due – overflowing with instrumental chops and bearing a really sharp sound – but never hitting the mark that they should have with this well-done debut! The group push blues influences into psych, and come up with a heady brew that's really wonderful – filled with the usual guitar, bass, and drums – but also given lots of wicked organ work from Howard Wales – who some folks know for a later recording with Jerry Garcia! Everyone is completely top-shelf here – and the group bring in some horns and guest harmonica from Jim Liban – really pushing their sound on titles that include "Camel Back", "24 Hours", "Upsets Me Baby", "Of All Sad Words", "Understand", and "Love Isn't".

Toshiko AkiyoshiUnited Notions ... LP
MGM/Metro, 1958. Very Good+ ... $44.99
A unique early large group session from pianist Toshiko Akioshi – recorded with a hip group of international players! The record's almost a precursor of some of Akioshi's better-known big band work of later years – but it's got more of a small combo feel overall, thanks to a tight septet lineup that includes Toshiko on piano, Nat Adderley on cornet, Rolf Kuhn on alto and clarinet, Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Rene Thomas on guitar, John Drew on bass, and Bert Dahlander (aka Bart Dahl) on drums. Doc Severinson stands in on trumpet for Adderley on a few numbers – but the real stars of the show are the reedmen, who get plenty of space to do their thing, and seem to show Toshiko's early preference for sharp-edged solos with a lot of feeling. Titles include "Sukiyaki", "Swinging Till The Girls Come Home", "United Notions", and "Civilized Folk". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/BBR (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There". CD features lots of bonus tracks, too – "Honeybee (Columbia single version)", "Honey Bee (MGM single version)", "All It Took Boy Was Losing You", "Come Tonight", "Never Can Say Goodbye (single version)", "Reach Out I'll Be There (single version)", and "We Just Can't Make It".

MGM, 1977. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A creepy Michael Crichton-directed soundtrack from the 70s! Jerry Goldsmith's excellent score for Coma is done with a moody mix of orchestrations that really underlies the eerie medical themes of the film! The instrumentation is mostly acoustic, but resonates with some nice dreamy 70s touches that come off great – a few sexy slinky moments matches with many more darker ones – sometimes conducted with a weird "watery" sort of quality to the woodwinds that's particularly great! Titles include "Study In Anatomy", "Disco Strut", "Free Ride", "The Long View", "Lucky Patient", "Chance Encounter", "OR 8", and "Love Theme From Coma", in both mellow and disco versions!

Jean Leccia InterpolationJean Leccia Interpolation (aka Lexia) ... LP
MGM, 1972. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A fantastic album – with a really groovy approach! The record is the only one we've ever seen from arranger Jean Leccia – and it's got a two-vocal lead approach that's pretty darn great. Soul singer Pat Henderson joins up with male vocalist Ed Whiting – in a style that's part harmony, but which also has a focus on the solo leads from time to time. Leccia's arrangements are a mix of bouncy jazz and dreamy pop – sweet and slow at times, but with some majestically groovy moments at others – baroquely skipping alone in a style that reminds us of some of the best European vocal groovers of the time, mixed with a healthy dose of California sunshine pop! Titles include the killer "Lady Rain", plus "Lovelight", "Drop", "Love Is", "Carnival", "Lovely Bird", "Only A Dream", "Mother Of Us All", and "Good Morning To You". LP, Vinyl record album

The whole thing's packaged in a great gatefold cover with photos on the inside, and a dramatic 70s paperback-style painting on the back.

David ShireTaking Of Pelham One Two Three – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP

An excellent 70s funky thriller soundtrack! This one's been a lost gem for sample freaks for years – and no wonder, since it's filled with funky riffing, tight rhythm tracks, and fierce horn blasts. The score was written by David Shire to accompany a thriller about some guys who hijack a subway in New York – and it feels like similar work from the time by Quincy Jones or Roy Budd. The tracks really vary in length – from short moody atmospheric numbers, to longer flat-out jazzy ones – and the soundtrack's just about impossible to find in any other form. Titles include "Goodbye Hippie", "Mini Manhunt", "The Taking", "More Taking", "Money Montage", "I Am Police Officer", and "Blue Green Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

War & Eric BurdonEric Burdon Declares War ... LP
MGM, 1970. Very Good ... $11.99
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

Did filmmaking ever get any better than this?

Great stuff – and Jerry Goldsmith's score for the film is equally nice – with a mixture of orchestral themes and other tunes that feature some nice moogy bits that sound all weird, spacey, and very very cool! Tracks include "The Dome", "On The Circuit", "The Sun", "The Truth", "End Of The City", and "Love Theme From Logan's Run", a sexy slinky number arranged by Jimmie Haskell!

✨✧ Johnny PateOutrageous ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky magic from maestro Johnny Pate – a record that's very much in the same spirit as his blacksploitation soundtracks for Shaft In Africa or Brother On The Run! The style here is quite similar – full orchestrations, scored by Johnny with an all-soul feel – and played by a crack lineup of jazz and soul instrumentalists – including Richard Tee on organ, Bernard Purdie on drums, Montego Joe on congas, Jerome Richardson on flute, and Cornell Dupree and Joe Beck on guitars! The guitars really rip back and forth nicely in the set – searing one minute, choppy the next – and sometimes as much a part of the rhythms as the bass, drums, and percussion! Pate also draws a bit on his earlier years in jazz – using Richardson's flute to bring some Lalo Schifrin-like sensitivity to some tracks, and some Roland Kirk-like soul to a few others – working in a depth of sound that's way more than just straight jazz or instrumental soul. All titles are originals by Johnny, who also arranged and produced the set – and tracks include "No Hangups", "Sangria", "Bound To Happen", "That Ain't Too Cool", "Totally Unexpected", "You're Starting Too Fast", "Frustrating Disappointment", and "Constant Wind".

✨✧ Chamaeleon ChurchChamaeleon Church (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Big Pink (South Korea), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really groovy psych album, and one by a short-lived group that has ties to so many other scenes too! The record was one of the wonderfully weird projects that Alan Lorber put together for MGM Records in the late 60s – and the quartet actually features a very young Chevy Chase, in pre-comedy days – working here alongside one future National Lampoon staffer, and members who would also end up in Ultimate Spinach! Yet despite that wider cultural legacy, there's a core sound here that's really unique – maybe touched a bit by Lorber's great ear for putting together a psych album, but handled by the group with this style of harmony vocals and slightly baroque instrumentation that almost feels like this spooky, dark-tinged take on the Sunshine Pop generation. Most tracks are by the group's leader and lead singer Ted Myers – and titles include "Spring This Year", "Remembering's All That I Can Do", "Flowers In The Field", "Tompkins Square Park", "Off With The Old", and "Camilla Is Changing".

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonBlack Man's Burdon ... LP
Far Out/MGM, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great pairing of talents – the post-Animals Eric Burdon on vocals, and early grooves from Cali funk legends War – coming together here in a blend that still holds up beautifully after all these years! Burdon was already getting pretty soulful on the last few Animals albums on MGM – and he really advances that style here when working with War's great grooves – some of the grittiest, nastiest, most stretched out work of their career – especially on some of the album's nicely long tracks. There's some nice Latin currents to the music at times, and the group vocalize alongside Burdon at times – and titles include a long version of "Paint It Black", plus "Bare Back Ride", "Sun/Moon", "Pretty Colors", "Gun", "Nuts Seeds & Life", "They Can't Take Away Our Music", and "Spirit".

A really wonderful back to basics session for Basie – featuring arrangements by longtime band members Frank Foster, Erick Dixon, Bobby Plater, and Thad Jones! The set also features vocals on 2 tracks by bluesy vocalist Richard Boone – a singer with a really great scatting approach – but overall, the real strength is the horn section, particularly Al Aarons, Dixon, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis – who all get in some very nice solo work. Tracks are mostly older numbers, Basie-ized – and played with a laidback tone that's a real contrast from the higher energy early 60s recordings. Titles include "Squeeze Me", "Frankie & Johnny", "Boone's Blues", "I Got Rhythm", and "Hey Jim". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieLil Ol Groovemaker Basie! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Count Basie and Quincy Jones were always a mighty mighty combination – and there's no finer proof of that fact than this sweet little set! Quincy had a way of swinging Basie's group even more than Neal Hefti did – really letting the piano step out front, and swinging the larger horn parts in this mode that was extremely soulful, yet never with the hoke that could sometimes mar a Basie set – a style that was very 60s groovy, and which really helped breathe new life into the Count's ensemble! The album's a killer all the way through – and the tunes are all originals – written by Quincy, and arranged especially for the set – great little numbers that include "Nasty Magus", "Dum Dum", "Boody Rumble", "Count Em", "Belly Roll", and "Lil Ol Groovemaker Basie"!

All tunes are short, and pretty upbeat – driven strongly by the drums, and featuring arrangements by Bellson, Ernie Wilkins, Bob Florence, and Aaron Sachs. Solos are by Herb Geller on alto, Jack Arnold on boo bam, Aaron Sachs on tenor, and Guido Basso on trumpet – and titles include "Drum Foolery", "Speak Low", "So Long Blues", "The Hawk Talks", "Summer Night", and "Blast Off".

Verve, 1963. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly great meeting between Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith – and a set that's one of Jimmy's standout small combo sessions for Verve! The feel here is much more Jimmy Smith at Blue Note than some of the bigger group Verve dates of the 60s – and Kenny Burrell's sensitive guitar lines provide wonderful company for Smith on the date – shading in his Hammond lines with a nice sense of color, in ways that really fit the late nite setting of the record. Other players on the date include either Bill English or Mel Lewis on drums, George Duvivier or Milt Hinton on bass, Vince Gambella on guitar, and Art Marotti on percussion – and titles include "Kenny's Sound", "Blues For Del", "Blue Bash", "Travelin", and "Soft Winds".

The one and only album from Douglas Fir – an obscure Northwest combo from the start of the 70s, but one who get some really top-shelf treatment on this album recorded for a small imprint of MGM! There's some surprisingly great larger arrangements at points – never too much, but just the right use of a bit of strings here, or a few horns there, to flesh out the spirit of the group's sound at the core – which is an often-melancholy mode that seems perfect for play on a rainy afternoon, where the swirling organ lines on some cuts ring out nicely, next to a few cuts that pick up a slight groove. Titles include "Jersey Thursday", "Moratorium Waltz", "Smokey Joe's", "Comin Back Home", "Tom's Song", "21 Years", "New Orleans Queen", and "Early Morning Rain". CD

Ella Fitzgerald sings Broadway – but in a way that makes the tunes completely her own! Marty Paich turns in some great jazzy arrangements for the set – and the tunes are far more swinging than the usual showtunes you might expect – stripped of all their stage-bound drama, and retooled by Paich as these tight little vehicles for Ella's amazing vocals! The album's arguably more expressive than even some of Fitzgerald's previous songbook sessions – even though most work comes from the same American stage mode – titles that include "Hernando's Hideaway", "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Guys and Dolls", "If I Were A Bell", "No Other Love", and "Steam Heat".

A definite shot at the pop market by Ella Fitzgerald – quite possibly recorded as a follow-up to the 60s success of former singing partner Louis Armstrong, who's referenced nicely in Ella's rendition of the title hit! The first 4 tracks on the set were done in the UK, under the leadership of arranger Johnny Spence – and the remaining 8 were done back on Ella's home turf, with familiar backings by Frank DeVol, and an overall sound that's a bit more lush than those on the British numbers. Includes a hit reading of "Can't Buy Me Love", plus "Hello Dolly", "The Sweetest Sounds", "My Man", "Volare", "The Thrill Is Gone", "How High The Moon", and "Lullaby Of The Leaves".

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis ArmstrongPorgy & Bess (single vinyl version) ... LP
Verve, 1957. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the hippest takes ever on the Porgy & Bess score – done in duet format by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, in a fuller spirit than their other albums for Verve! Like many late 50s albums of Gershwin's score, this one was issued in advance of the film with Sidney Poitier – but unlike most, this is less of a cash-in affair, and really takes Gershwin's music on its own – serving it up with that newly serious style that Verve was hitting with some artists, especially Ella, in the latter half of the 50s. Most tracks have relatively full backings – strings and jazz orchestrations – and the double-length set features 14 tracks that include "Buzzard Song", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "My Man's Gone Now", "I Wants To Stay Here", "Summertime", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "What You Want Wid Bess", "There's A Boat Dat's Leavin Soon For New York", "Oh Lawd I'm On My Way", and "A Woman Is A Sometime Thing".

Stan GetzSweet Rain ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $23.99
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz again! The tracks are all long, sweeping, and very spiritual – and the group's a soulful batch of freer players (Chick Corea on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Grady Tate on drums) – all of whom really open Stan up, and drive him to give out some of the best solos of his careers, with a tone that's completely sublime. All tracks are long, and the album includes an amazing version of Corea's "Litha", plus the cuts "Windows", "Con Alma", and "O Grande Amor". One of our favorite jazz albums ever!

Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $14.99
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar.

Stan Getz & Charlie ByrdJazz Samba ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $28.99
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia".

Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

There's still plenty of Brazilian tunes in the mix – like "Oba, Oba", "Canoeiro", "Bossa Na Praia", "Nao Bate O Corocao", and Marcos Valle's great "The Face I Love" – and the album also features great versions of "Misty Roses", "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice", and "Stay".

Verve, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
Kind of a dream combination in one little album – especially if you dig breezy bossa from the 60s! Back in 1966, Verve Records got the great idea of teaming up its (then) biggest Brazilian imports – vocalist Astrud Gilberto and organist Walter Wanderley – both of whom were selling plenty at the time! Astrud's lovely vocals are matched beautifully with the lean, rhythmic bossa grooves of Wanderley's trio – and the result is a record that's near-perfect in execution. Most of the tracks are quite short, as is the record itself – but it's a perfectly concentrated dose of the Verve bossa sound at its best, with tracks that include "Portuguese Washerwoman", "Tu Meu Delirio", "A Certain Smile", "Call Me", "Here's That Rainy Day", "A Certain Sadness", "It's A Lovely Day Today", and a vocal version of Wanderley's big hit "Summer Samba", redone here as "So Nice"!

The group's a quartet – with the great Lawrence Marable on drums, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Red Mitchell on bass – and although this rhythm section-based style is quite different from Jimmy's freer trio work, there's still a magical approach to the music – taking Giuffre's horn to places you really wouldn't expect for the instrument at the time. Recorded with a really loose and easy feel by Bones Howe – and mostly improvised in the studio at the time of recording. Titles include "I Hear Red", "Problems", "Stella By Starlight", and "I Got Those Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby HatfieldOther Brother – A Solo Anthology 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Overlooked genius from Bobby Hatfield – the lesser-remembered Righteous Brother – or at least one who never hit the fame of his duo partner Bill Medley! Yet Bobby's a hell of a singer, and really steps out wonderfully here – on a range of rare tracks that includes material cut for Verve, but unissued at the time – mixed with other 7" single tracks, a few Philles cuts, and lots more work for MGM. The core of the record – about fifty percent – is the excellent Messin In Muscle Shoals album – a killer session down at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, with a heavy soul vibe that really knocks the album out of the park! The set's one of the best in that rare early 70s blend of soul, funk, and rock – the kind of groove that few cats could handle as well as Bobby – with a vibe that maybe reminds us of Eddie Hinton at his best, but even more stripped-down and rootsy! The lineup features great work from Muscle Shoals stalwarts – like Harrison Calloway on baritone sax, Clayton Ivey on organ, and Travis Wammack on guitar. Lots of the other material follows in the same vein – even the tracks for Verve – and titles include "Hang Ups", "Soul Cafe", "So Much Love", "Brothers", "See That Girl", "Woman You Got No Soul", "Paradise", "Crying In The Chapel", "In My Mind", "What's The Matter Baby", "You Left The Water Running", "The Promised Land", "Shuckin & Jivin", "I Saw A Lark", and "Messin In Muscle Shoals". 24 tracks in all – 7 previously unissued!

The genius of Richie Havens at this point is beyond compare – a unique take on the dying folk sound of the 60s, one that infused it with a deeper sense of soul that helped it get new legs in the Woodstock generation – yet which is also heard here before any of the post-hippie cliches that would bog down some of Richie's later work. There's an earnestness to this music that's also touched with a good degree of worldly sense – a notion that the world was changing, but one person at a time, and mostly through the gentle efforts and honest efforts of souls like Richie. This LP features 11 tracks in all – with titles that include "High Flyin' Bird", "San Francisco Bay Blues", "Just Like A Woman", "Sandy", "Three Day Eternity", "Follow", and "Handsome Johny".

The style is nothing fancy, but Hodges' tone on these mid 60s Verve sides is always right on the money – soulful but not overdone, and put forth with just the right amount of economy. Hines' work on organ is pretty darn nice too – and the set's a nice cooker that updates the older swing sound of Verve for the 60s, but still keeps the mellow and spontaneous feel of the 60s. Titles include "Tippin In", "Caution Blues", "Stride Right", "Rosetta", "Fantastic", "Perdido", and "Tale Of The Fox". LP, Vinyl record album

Billie HolidayEssential Billie Holiday – Carnegie Hall Concert ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, and Billie emerges with songs throughout – using Millstein's narration to bracket portions of her career, then delivering the tunes associated with that portion. Backing is by an all-hip group that includes Coleman Hawkins, Kenny Burrell, Chico Hamilton, Roy Eldridge, and Buck Clayton – and titles include "I Cried For You", "My Man", "Don't Explain", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Body & Soul", "I Love My Man", and "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM stereo pressing, with slightly different cover layout.)

ImpalasSorry I Ran All The Way Home ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1959. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The Impalas had a short history, but cut some great work at the end of the 50s – as you'll hear in this mighty nice set! The core of the CD features the group's record Sorry – the only full album ever cut by The Impalas – a group who scored strong with the big title hit, but are pretty darn wonderful all the way through! The Impalas are one of those lost acts from the glory days of harmony group work – impeccable here, with a vocal quality that's already pretty darn wonderful – made even better by really top-shelf production from the Cub Records branch of MGM – who add all the right larger touches, but never water down the vocals at all! Most tunes are originals, too – which makes the record way more than just a hit single with filler material – and the group shine nicely on "Sorry", "Too Much Too Soon", "Mommy O", "Cupid", "She Belongs To Me", "Fool Fool Fool", "Sandy Went Away", "Chum", and "All But The Memory Of You". CD then also includes seven more tracks issued as singles by Cub and Hamilton – titles that include "First Date", "I Was A Fool", "All Alone", "Peggy Darling", "When My Heart Does The Talking", and "Bye Everybody".

Jackie & RoyChanges – Jackie & Roy ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Jazzy Verve-y grooves by this fab duo, with arrangements by Charles Calello and Claus Ogerman that are similar to those used on the pair's Grass album, but with a bit less pop psychedelia thrown into the mix. Tracks are groovy pop stuff, like "Norweigian Wood", and "The Word" – plus more obscure numbers, like "Changes", "Counting", and "Bye Bye". Always great stuff from Jackie & Roy – and work we've come to appreciate more than their classic work! LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyLovesick ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Wonderfully groovy work from the team of Jackie Cain & Roy Kral – a set that has the pair moving into much hipper modes for the 60s, and really taking off from the greatness of earlier records! Backing is still by Roy's core trio, with acoustic piano at the lead – but the addition of electric bass to the lineup really helps the tunes step along nicely – hitting a groove not heard before from Jackie & Roy, with results that are completely sublime! There's a definite bossa influence that comes into some of the best tracks – a skipping, lilting approach to rhythm that's made even better by the unique dual vocals of the team, especially when they're singing wordlessly. But even when lyrical vocals are part of the mix, the sound is still great too – and Jackie & Roy have a way of bringing charm to a tune that few other singers can touch! Titles include "Lovesick", "A Big Beautiful Ball", "You Really Started Something", "Let's Begin", "Mimosa & Me", "Corcovado", "Samba Triste", and "The World Is Your Balloon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono yellow label promo MGM pressing. Cover has a lightly bumped corner, but is nice overall!)

George JacksonGeorge Jackson In Memphis ... LP
Ace/Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A stunning collection of work from the great George Jackson – a real 70s powerhouse in southern soul, but an artist who didn't always get the chance to shine as much as he should! One reason for that was that Jackson only issued singles during the decade – work here collected from labels that include Chess, MGM, and Sounds Of Memphis – superbly-written tunes that really show off George's skills as a songwriter – at a level that also had Jackson's talents so in demand by others, he didn't always get the chance to issue records on his own. As you'd guess from the title, the work here was all recorded in Memphis – with wonderful vocals by George, and that strong Memphis style backing of soulful guitars, horns, sweet keys, rollicking drums and insistent bass lines. Titles include "Things Are Getting Better", "Let's Live For Ourselves", "If You Never See Me", "Dear Abby", "I Don't Need You No More", "Talking About The Love I Have For You", "How Can I Get Next To You", "If You Never See Me", and "Walking The City Streets".

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1969. Used ... $11.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty Alexander joining the pair, bringing in some warmly soulful elements on piano – in ways that are a great bridge between his work for MGM and MPS! The set also features great tenor from Teddy Edwards – blowing with a deep tone and a sharp edge – and in addition to vibes by Jackson and bass by Brown, the group also features Dick Berk on drums. The set was recorded live at Shelly's Manne-Hole – and titles include Alexander's "That's The Way It Is", plus "Blues In The Basement", "Wheelin & Dealin", and "Tenderly". CD

✨✧ Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (tan cover) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
One volume of a four volume set, though Verve didn't number them. Recorded in concert one night in Denmark, this set is a Norm Granz production that transplants the JATP crew to Europe. While some of the other volumes feature larger groups blowin' and riffing on standards, this one has a small more intimate group, featuring Stan Getz & JJ Johnson in front of a nice tight rhythm section of Victor Feldman, Sam Jones & Louis Hayes. The set's still made up of standards, but there's a few nice takes here, including "I Waited For You", "Yesterdays" and a nice version of "Bop N Boogie" featuring Dizzy Gillespie.

Gene KrupaDrum Boogie ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A great little record that features Krupa in two modes – trio and sextet. The trio sides feature Teddy Napoleon on piano and Charlie Ventura on tenor and baritone on tracks that include "Stardust", "Perdido", "Drum Boogie", and "Fine's Idea" – and without a bass, there's a bit more freedom in the sound of these tunes than you might expect. The other two tracks on the set – "Capital Idea" and "Paradise" – feature a sextet with Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Willie Smith on alto sax, and as with the rare bits of Smith's work from the time, his work on alto is worth the price of the album alone!

An unusual album from Gene Krupa – not a rockish set, or even an R&B-tinged one – but a nice small combo set that features clarinet from the obscure Gail Curtis – a player with a lean, swinging sound that gives the record the feel of some of the Buddy DeFranco dates for Verve in the mid 50s! The group's a quartet – with Teddy Napoleon on piano and Mort Herbert on bass. LP, Vinyl record album

La ClaveLa Clave ... CD
Verve/Dusty Groove, 1973. Used ... $22.99
An incredible album of Latin funk – the only-ever record from this west coast combo headed by the legendary Benny Velarde! Benny's a name that you might recognize from earlier, straighter Latin dates for Fantasy – or for countless studio work during the 70s – but here, he's really got a talent for a funky 70s groove – and manages to hit a unique space that's somewhere between conventional funk, west coast Latin, and some of the hippest blacksploitation grooves of the time! The album also features some under-credited work from Lalo Schifrin – who was tied to the project somehow (Velarde claims that the record was killed by MGM upon release because of a feud with Lalo) – but never really fully credited in the notes. There's a definite link here with some of Schifrin's funkier soundtrack of the period – a great blend of jazzier elements and headier 70s funk – all served up with a tightness that has made the record one of our favorite funky treasures for years! Titles include "The Ghetto", "Latin Slide", "Who You Fooling", "Road Runner", "Soul Sauce", "Cocoa Leaf", and "Move Your Hands". CD

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryBumpin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
An incredible album from Wes Montgomery – and the beginning of a whole new sound for his guitar! Wes moves away from his small combo soul jazz roots on the set – and hits a wonderfully sweet new vibe with larger arrangements from Don Sebesky – bigger backdrops that fill in the space between the notes wonderfully, yet still leave plenty of space for Montgomery to really open up and do his thing! Sebesky's got a perfect sense of timing on the record – and many tunes have a subtle sort of groove – one that pushes Wes' solos beautifully, and has them open up in chromatic tones that are simply mindblowing. This is the start of Montgomery's really classic years in the 60s jazz mainstream – and titles include the classic "Bumpin", plus "Mi Cosa", "Musty", "Con Alma", and "Tear It Down". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono MGM pressing with Van Gelder stamp, including Verve inner sleeve. Cover has light surface wear & aging, name in pen inner gatefold, partial top split.)

Wes MontgomeryGoin Out Of My Head ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of Wes Montgomery's grooviest albums on Verve – a set that features his smooth chromatic work on guitar set to lively arrangements from Oliver Nelson! Nelson gives the set more of a "punch" than some of Montgomery's other Verve records – and the style uses a tight brace of brass and woodwinds as the backdrop for Montgomery's moody solo work. The tracks have a nice edgey quality, but also maintain a smooth stepping quality as well – and Wes' tone, as always, is sublime! Titles include "Golden Earrings", "Twisted Blues", "O Morro", "Boss City", and "Naptown Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver NelsonFull Nelson ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Excellent work from one of our favorite arrangers! Nelson was a super-hip super-soulful genius who crafted some of the best charts in the 60s. He managed to work in a great amount of jazz where other arrangers would leave things cold – and on a record like this he manages to make a large group swing really nicely in a very confined space. His own work on alto dominates the record, but the groups backing him up include Phil Woods, Jerome Richardson, Clark Terry, Romeo Penque, and Jimmy Raney – many of whom manage to sneak in some nice sharp solo moments. Titles include "Back Woods", "Full Nelson", "Skokiaan", "Majorca", "Miss Fine", "Paris Blues", and "Lilia's Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ParkerJazz Perennial – Genius Of Charlie Parker #7 ... LP
Verve, 1949. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of our favorite of Verve's "genius of" collections of Charlie Parker's work – largely because it includes some wonderful and oft-overlooked vocal tunes! 4 of the tracks on the set feature Bird blowing with a vocal chorus arranged by Dave Lambert – in a style that shouldn't work, but does – thanks to Lambert's keen bop sensibilities (heard here before his Lambert Hendricks & Ross years), and to players in the group that include Hal McKusick, Max Roach, and Charles Mingus. Other tracks have Parker either playing in a quartet with Buddy Rich, Ray Brown, and Hank Jones – or in a different group with Kenny Dorham and Tommy Turk. Titles include "Cardboard", "Visa", "Segment", "Passport", "Diverse", "I'm In the Mood For Love", "If I Love Again", and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PetersonKeyboard – Music By Oscar Peterson ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $18.99
An unusual Verve album from Oscar Peterson, and one that really lives up to its title! There's no drummer on the album at all – just bass from either Ray Brown or Major Holley – which leaves plenty of space for Oscar's work on the keys of the piano, opening up warmly with a really fluid sound. The tunes still have that romping quality of Peterson's early years on Verve, but a bit more lyricism too – and titles include "Tico Tico", "Robbins Nest", "Get Happy", "Easy To Love", "Deep Purple", and "Squatty Roo".

Buddy RichBig Band Shout (aka This One's For Basie) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A lively little set done strongly in a Basie mode – as you might guess from the title! Buddy's on drums, but the real maestro here is Marty Paich – who handled the arrangements, and most likely brought together the batch of west coast jazzers who inhabit the group – including Pete Condoli on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Bob Enevoldsen on valve trombone, Bob Cooper on tenor, Buddy Collette on flute and baritone, and Jimmy Rowles on piano. The set's less Buddy-like than it is Marty-ish – and the grooves here have that very fluid Paich approach throughout – but recast slightly to reflect the strong Basie/Hefti groove of the 50s. Titles include "Shorty George", "Ain't It The Truth", "9:20 Special", "Jump For Me", "Blues For Basie", and "Blue & Sentimental". LP, Vinyl record album
