Gary CrosbyGary Crosby – Orchestra Conducted By Bud Shank ... LP
World Pacific, 1957. Very Good ... $11.99
A strange little record, but one with more of a jazz component than you might think! Gary's the son of Bing, natch – and he's following here in his pop's footsteps, singing jazz standards with backing conducted by Bud Shank. The interesting thing is that the session was actually recorded in Germany – and the group features some hip Europeans, like Roland Kovac on piano, Atilla Zoller on guitar, Jerry Van Rooyen on trumpet, and Hans Koller on tenor. Shank plays as well – and titles include "Blue Prelude", "Exactly Like You", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "One For My Baby", and "Love Is Just Around The Corner". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with silver text and deep groove. Logo on top of cover has a bit of pen, and that same top corner has a bit of seam splitting.)

Billy Larkin & The DelegatesBest Of Billy Larkin & The Delegates ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Monster groovers! This late 60s compilation brings together some of the best early work by organist Billy Larkin, and his amazing Delegates trio! Plus, some of the tracks feature some excellent sax work by the legendary Clifford Scott – best known to the world for his 50s work with Bill Doggett, but sounding even better here, with a nice clean round sound. The set includes the always-favorite groover "Pygmy", plus the tracks "Sticky Wicket", "Ice Water", "Hainty", "The Peeper", "Killer Joe", and "Blue Lights". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light aging and minimal wear.)

Marisa MonteMais ... CD
World Pacific, 1997. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff from Marisa Monte – and a record that's criss-crossed with influences, thanks to production by Arto Lindsay, and performances by Marc Ribot, Bernie Worrell, John Zorn, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Nana Vasconcelos, and Ed Motta! Maybe a bit slicker than the current American press hype would have you expect – but a record that's filled with some great songwriting, and plenty of nice moments. Titles include "Beija Eu", "Ainda Lembro", "De Noite Na Cama", "Rosa", "Borboleta", and "Eu Sei". CD

Buddy RichMercy Mercy – Live At Caesars Palace ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Buddy at his soulful late 60s best – not content to keep in the same groove as older years, and working here with a great lineup that includes some excellent younger players! Charles Owens is in the group on alto, and the set also features work by Don Menza on tenor, Art Pepper on alto, Pat Labarbera on tenor, and Walter Namuth on guitar. Tracks are long, include some good originals, and have a rollicking sound that never lets up – and which avoids cliche a lot more than you'd think! Titles include "Ode To Billie Joe", "Acid Truth", "Goodbye Yesterday", "Preach & Teach", "Channel 1 Suite", and "Big Mama Cass". LP, Vinyl record album

Annie Ross with Zoot SimsGasser! ... LP
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Great stuff – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe PassSign Of The Times ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This album's got a very telling title – as Joe's guitar is working here with bigger arrangements by Bob Florence, backings that go for a mod 60s sound! Florence uses a range of instrumentation on the set, plus some occasional vocal choruses, all in a mode that's got some very nice mid 60s LA touches, of the sort you'd hear on records for A&M! Titles include "The Phoenix Love Theme", "Dindi", "Nowhere Man", "A Summer Song", "Moment To Moment", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Sweet September", and "Are You There With Another Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, half split seams, small sticker remnants, and some notes on back. Label has a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Ravi ShankarRavi Shankar In Concert ... LP
World Pacific, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 60s live set from Ravi Shankar – recorded at UCLA, but with a clarity of sound that rivals his studio albums from the time! The album features 2 long tracks – the extended raga "Madhuvanti", and the vocal number "Dhun In Mishra Mand" – both with Kanai Dutta on tabla and Nodu Mullick on tamboura. Each number builds slow, with lots of solo sitar from Ravi – then grows into a bolder sort of sound! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SandalsEndless Summer – Original Soundtrack (violet vinyl pressing) ... LP
World Pacific/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A groovy soundtrack to this hip surf film directed by Bruce Brown – filled with great little instrumentals that go way past the obvious! Brown had previously used jazz players for some of his films – including Bud Shank, who cut some great stuff for earlier soundtracks – but this set's got him working with The Sandals, a younger guitar-driven group with a cool style of scoring – partly surf instrumentals, but partly mod and groovy too! The Sandals move way past the stock surf riffs of chart surf groups – and they really do a great job with the changing moods and scenes of the film – fitting the many scenes of surfing on the screen. Titles include "Jet Black", "TR 6", "Scrambler", "6 Pak", "Driftin", "Good Greeves", and "Decoy". LP, Vinyl record album
(First US reissue – on "Ultraviolet" vinyl!)

A weird set of sitar and bongos backed sing-speak about gurus, devil gods, leprechauns, elves, opium, the wind, hippie boys and other oddball psychedelia enhanced storytelling from Kali,The Gypsy Star Child! We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops. Includes "A Game Called Who Am I", "Cosmic Remembrance", "A Cosmic Telephone Call", "From The Angel Liesle & The Buddha" and "How Can I Tell My Guru?" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bud ShankCalifornia Dreamin' ... CD
World Pacific/Elemental (France), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The alto of Bud Shank gets some fuller backings from the great Bob Florence – all in a mode that's as groovy as you might expect from the title – and which also features a bit of guest work from Chet Baker as well! The sound's nice and buoyant – swinging, but never too over the top in a big band way – leaving Bud some great space to blow with a bit of strength, even if the tracks are relatively short – packing in plenty in a small space, and using his alto sax with a deftness, and sense of feeling we really love! Titles include "Imprevu", "Husbands & Wives", "Woman", "Gotta Go", and "In Times Like These". CD

✨✧ Bud ShankMichelle ... LP
World Pacific, 1965. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Bud Shank takes on the sounds of The Beatles – and a whole host of other 60s pop stars as well – all with results that are as jazzy as they are groovy! The album's one of a few that Bud cut for Liberty in this format – alto and flute spread out over fuller backings from Bob Florence, a great arranger who knows how to make things swing by bringing in some wonderful 60s touches! There's a bit of guitar at times, some compressed horns – ala A&M – and some overall mod rhythms that help change things up nicely from tune to tune. Titles include "Michelle", "Yesterday", "Blue On Blue", "Sounds Of Silence", "Turn Turn Turn", "As Tears Go By", and "Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe Meek & OthersEmotional, Cosmic, & Occult World Of Joe Meek ... LP
Chump Change, Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A host of amazing productions from the legendary Joe Meek – the UK studio genius who made some really incredible music in the 60s! Joe had a sense of echo, space, and electronics that was unrivalled by anyone else working in London at the time – and his music here easily rivals the best offbeat sounds coming from the American west coast, particularly the LA and Pacific Northwest scenes! There's lots of great guitar moments and sharp garagey edges – and lots of those weird, unusual instrumental moments that made Meek's music sound moogy years before the moog was invented. But there's also some wonderfully dramatic pop vocals too, which bring this sense of life to these tunes that never gets old. Titles include "Valley Of The Saroos" by The Blue Men, "Johnny Remember ME" by John Leyton, "Crazy Drums" by The Outlaws, "North Wind" by Chick Lewis, "Singing The Blues" by Jason Eddie & The Centremen, "Night Of The Vampire" by The Moontrekkers, and "The Angry Desert" by The Sound Offs.

Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "Nono", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". Full LP that reissues the original 10" sets. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label World Pacific pressing in a red cover, with minor seam splits.)

✨✧ Booker ErvinTex Book Tenor ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing later work from Booker Ervin – far more modern and far-reaching than you'd guess from the "Texas" title in the set! Although Ervin first came onto the scene as a strong-voiced tenorist from a Texas tradition, through the course of the 60s he'd really expanded his musical vision – working with Charles Mingus, Jaki Byard, and others to push his already-soulful sound into a freer-thinking mode that was one of the most compelling approaches to tenor at the time. And while this change had been documented on some key sides for Prestige and World Pacific at the time, this rare 1968 session for Blue Note is perhaps one of the best of the bunch – but oddly was somehow never issued at the time, and only made a brief appearance in 1976, as part of a 2LP set. Ervin's working here with a totally hip group – one that has Woody Shaw in the frontline on trumpet, and a rhythm team of Kenny Barron on piano, Jan Arnet on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all grooving with Ervin in styles that recall the modal vamping and soaring energy that Shaw would later bring to his own solo work in the 70s. Tracks are all longish, and filled with a sense of life and exploration that shows that Ervin was growing tremendously in this last stretch of his all-too-short life – never too free, always in control, yet roaming the skies in search of new notes and sounds! Titles include "Gichi", "Den Tex", "Lynn's Tune", "204", and an early version of Shaw's "In A Capricornian Way". CD

✨✧ Gil Fuller with Dizzy GillespieGil Fuller & The Monterey Jazz Festival Orchestra (80s pressing) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Dizzy Gillespie's hippest big band sessions ever – and one of the few dates as a leader from arranger Gil Fuller! Fuller will always be best-remembered as the man who composed some of Dizzy Gillespie's best known tunes from the bop era – like "Manteca", "One Bass Hit", and "Things To Come" – but on this album from 1965, he's reunited with Dizzy for a large group set of tracks that feature Diz as the main soloist – at a level that really shows the growth of both men at the time! Fuller's charts are large and full, but with a sense of space that's really amazing – almost like some of the soundtrack work Dizzy had done for The Cool World – with a mix of soulful and modern moments that's really wonderful. The group's kind of a mix of hip LA players – with Phil Moore Jr on piano, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Jimmy Bond on bass – plus a larger set of horn players backing Dizzy up. Titles include a number of great originals – such as "Be's That Way", "Big Sur", "Things Are Here", "Man From Monterey", and "Angel City". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEllington Suite ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1958. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Forget the Ellington in the title, because this is more a moody album of west coast chamber jazz, in the best tradition of the Chico Hamilton group! This album features the version of Chico's group with Paul Horn on flute and alto sax – plus Jim Hall guitar, Fred Katz cello, and Buddy Collette on tenor and alto sax. The sound differs a bit from the version you may know from the CD reissue – as that one features Dolphy in the group – but it's still great, with titles that include "Azure", "In A Mellotone", "Day Dream", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "I'm Just A Lucky So & So".

✨✧ VariousUnusual Sounds ... CD
Anthology, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sounds here aren't that unusual at all – and in fact, they're mostly pretty darn groovy – a superb selection of sound library funk from the glory days of the European scene – collected here together in support of the book of the same name! In case you're new to the scene – the Euro sound library world of the 60s and 70s was a place where extremely creative musicians could come together and create their own sort of grooves without a worry for placement on the record charts – as most of these cuts were locked in the vaults, then licensed briefly for use on radio, TV, or commercials – which led to a few of these gems getting some famous, but anonymous play on classic cop or crime shows at the time. The compilation brings together some of the best examples of this scene – loads of cuts that have been our favorites over the years – a whopping 20 tracks that include "Half Forgotten Daydreams" by John Cameron, "Funky Fanfare" by Keith Mansfield, "Weeping Eelgrass" by Mladen Franko, "Mild Maniac" by Peter Patzer, "Dream Number Two" by Roland Hollinger, "Soft Wind" by Gary Pacific Orchestra, "Tropicola" by Stringtronics, "Survivor" by Klaus Weiss, "La Dimonstrazione" by Daniele Patucchi, "Feeling Tense" by Stefano Torossi, "Xenos Cosmos" by Janko Nilovic, "Night Breeze" by Franco Micalizzi, and "Fancy Good" by Electric Machine.
