Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – Legendary Recordings Vol 2 ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this set! The set does good job of digging through Roy's work from the late 40s and early 50s, pulling together 15 tracks that mix Wynonnie Harris-ish rockers (no surprise, as King often had Brown and Harris splitting "Battle Of The Blues" albums together), with mellower soulful tunes. Tracks include "Black Diamond", "Mighty Mighty Man", "Long About Midnight", "Miss Fanny Brown Returns", "Butcher Pete part 2", "Brown Angel", "Grandpa Stole My Baby", and the original version of "Good Rockin Tonight", which is a lot rawer than you'd expect!

Percy MayfieldVoice Within ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
A collection of some of Percy Mayfield's early and probably least well-known recordings. Almost all of the compositions are originals, which is no surprise since Mayfield became one of the great songwriters for many people including folks like Ray Charles. Tracks include "How Wrong Can A Good Man Be", "The Hunt Is On","I Dare You, Baby", "The Bachelor Blues", "Sugar Mama – Peachy", and a previously unissued track called "My Story About A Woman".

Frank ChacksfieldAll Time Top TV Themes ... CD
Phase 4/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
A sweet little take on the TV theme world of the 60s – served up by Brit maestro Frank Chacksfield at a level that's maybe a little bit more groovy than some of his other records from the time! Frank's still working with a very full orchestra, but the songs themselves have an inherently cool quality that his musicians can't help to pick up – as they make their way through versions of "Rawhide", "Route 66", "Dragnet", "Alfred Hitchcock Theme", "Dick Van Dyke Show", "Man From UNCLE", "Bonanza", "Marriage", and "Peter Gunn".

✨✧ Neal HeftiThemes From TV's Top 12 ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Very Good ... $2.99
A Neal Hefti spectacular – featuring 40 guitars and 8 pianos, according to the cover – and done in a mode that's very different than his work with Count Basie! As you'll guess from the title, the tunes here are all TV numbers – a range of groovy themes from the late 50s and early 60s, served up with a mixture of jazz and pop instrumental modes – the latter of which draws heavily from the wall of guitars, plus some of the piano parts too – which are recorded with a nice degree of echo! Most titles are really changed up nicely – given that sweet Hefti style of arrangement, and not just copycats of the more famous originals. Tracks include "The Flintstones", "My Three Sons", "Route 66", "Andy Griffith Show", "The Real McCoys", "Wagon Train", "Ben Casey", "Perry Mason", and "The Dick Powell Show". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kayo IshuLiving Scat – Neo Standards ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $22.99
Breezy and easy vocals from Japan – a collection of recordings made by singer Kayo Ishu from the late 60s and 1970s – not really "scat" in a conventional style, but cool wordless vocals with a sweet jazzy feel! The 19 track set brings together tunes from a variety of different Japanese albums – some of them faceless easy listening sessions – and the tunes feature Kayo singing in a mode that's dreamy, floating, and free – a bit like Barbara Moore's recordings from the time, but somewhat gentler and with a lighter touch! Titles include "Cold Road", "Dedicated To Byrd", "You Belong To Me", "Summer Samba", "Again", "Five Minutes More", "Route 66", "Awakening", "Strangers In The Night", "My Pure Lady", "One Rainy Night In Tokyo", and "Ken & Merry".

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mike Sammes Singers & The John Gregory OrchestraChannel West (TV Western Themes/Avengers & Other TV Themes/Let's Get Away From It All/The Melody Moves) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly from American sources – taken at a relatively serious level with added vocals from Sammes' group. The second half of the Gregory tracks are more swinging – and feature work from The Avengers and other 60s crime/spy material. Gregory titles include "The Avengers", "Sunset Strip", "Johnny Staccato", "Route 66", "Tightrope", "Sugarfoot", "Maverick", "Bonanza", "Rawhide", and "Perry Mason". The other part of the collecvtion features excellent material from the Mike Sammes Singers – a mixed male/female group who work in a very jazzy style – clearly schooled in the vocalese of Lambert Hendricks & Ross or The Blue Stars – but also working with more of a lyrical approach, and this sprightly feel that would have been perfect on 60s TV. The arrangements are great – jazzier than they are cheesy – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Pick Yourself Up", "Passing Breeze", "Spring Spring Spring", "Nice To Know You Care", "I Know That You Know", and "Manhattan". Package also fetaures more bonus tracks from the Sammes Singers! CD

✨✧ Nat King ColeNat King Cole & The Quincy Jones Big Band – Live In Paris 19 Avril 1960 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A dream of a collaboration – the great Nat King Cole in his prime, getting some mighty hip backings from the equally great Quincy Jones – who gives Nat a jazzy push that he wasn't always getting on his Capitol Records sessions of the time! The performance was recorded live in Paris on the same 1960 tour that has given us a few other rare Cole/Jones collaborations – but this one may well be the best of the bunch, as the fidelity is great – with an equal balance on Nat's wonderful vocal phrasing, and all the strongly soulful elements that Quincy brings to the band. Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Lester Leaps In", "Dance Ballerina Dance", "The Continental", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Route 66", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Joe Turner's Blues", "Welcome To The Club", "Blues In The Night", and "Thou Swell".

Monday MichiruRoutes – Live In Japan (DVD) ... DVD
Geneon (Japan), 2006. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few DVDs we've ever seen of the great Monday Michiru – a performer who's even more enchanting in a live setting than in the studio! Monday works here with a great small combo– Henry Hey on keyboards, Genta on drums and percussion, and Alex Sipiagin on trumpet and flugelhorn – a lineup that really follows the deeper, more jazz-based style of her later work – as she opens up on titles that include a great mix of older gems and new material. Includes versions of "Sunshine After The Rain", "The Right Time", "I Couldn't See", "You Make Me", "Touch The Sky", "Intuition", "I'm Still Here", "Remember", "Hung Up", "Play It By Ear", and "Philosophy Road".

Two Banks Of FourCity Watching ... CD
Sirkus Recordings (UK), 2000. Used ... $5.99
A majestic batch of tunes from Two Banks Of Four – one of the most exciting UK groups we've heard in years! The set's got a really ambitious feel overall – blending together electric jazz, future beats, and a larger sense of orchestration that reminds us of the work of Cinematic Orchestra or Chris Bowden – the latter of whom is actually in the group on saxes! String arrangements are handled by Ski Oakenful, who also plays some great keyboards on the set – and most tracks are instrumentally-oriented, done in a very evocative style. Titles include "Skylines Over Rooftops", "Theme De La Tete", "Afro Blue", "Hook & A Line", "Street Lullaby (part 1)", "Routemaster", "Perilous Ways", and "Speedy's Auto Repair". CD

Milt JacksonSoul Route ... LP
Pablo, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A set that definitely moves along the Soul Route promised in the title – thanks to great vibes from Milt Jackson, and a mix of electric and acoustic piano from Gene Harris! Harris here has none of the hoke of some of his Concord sides – and instead, slides in alongside Jackson to give him some of his most soulful backing of the Pablo years – all with a sound that's almost more mid 70s soul jazz than you'd guess from the date of the record! Other players include Ray Brown on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – and titles include "Soul Route", "Blues For Gene", "Sittin In The Sandtrap", and "Ne-Afterglow". LP, Vinyl record album
