✨✧ Oscar Peterson & Nelson RiddleOscar Peterson & Nelson Riddle ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful meeting of two mid-century musical talents – the piano of Oscar Peterson and the arrangements of Nelson Riddle – a surprisingly wonderful pairing, heard here on a rare set for Verve! Peterson never recorded with strings nearly as much as he did with a trio, but almost all of his dates in the format are wonderful – and this album may well be one of the best! Riddle's nicely restrained here – using that new sense of space he was finding in the 60s, and moving a bit away from more sentimental modes of the 50s, into some laidback jazzy charts that are really great. Peterson's piano steps through the arrangements wonderfully – never trying to dominate, and instead really going with the flow that Riddle provides. There's a mature sound to this record that really points the way towards some of the later Verve and CTI orchestrations of the 60s – proof that Riddle could have a huge influence on styles to come – and titles include "Judy", "My Ship", "Nightingale", "A Sleeping Bee", "Goodbye", "Portrait Of Jenny", "Come Sunday", "Round Midnight", and "My Foolish Heart".

VariousKubrick's Music – Selections From The Films Of Stanley Kubrick (4CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $22.99
A huge set of music – one that's maybe a bit different than you might expect! Right from the start, Stanley Kubrick was a groundbreaking director – one who had a great sense of music on the screen – sometimes from film scores that he'd commission for his movies, sometimes from previous recordings that were used in really effective ways in a scene! This package focuses strongly on that second half of the Kubrick legacy – and includes selections by a huge amount of talents – including Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Coltrane, Sergei Prokofiev, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Johan Strauss, Toots Thielemans, Vera Lynn, Oscar Peterson, Bela Bartok, and others – as used in films that include Dr Strangelove, 2001 A Space Oddysey, Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and Eyes Wide Shut. The set also features film scores from Spartacus by Alex North and Lolita by Nelson Riddle – and the whole thing comes in a box set with a booklet – featuring 69 tracks in all, with a lot of musical surprises!
