  1. Who Was The Arranger For Teresa Brewer's Version

    Jerry Fielding was a very talented composer/arranger who has unfortunately slipped through the cracks. He composed a lot of 70s film and TV scores, many of which did not receive contemporaneous LP releases. This has been somewhat corrected in the digital era, but many of these releases were limited editions that sold out quickly. My favorite Fielding is his dissonant score for the Charles Bronson assassin film, The Mechanic. This was released on CD twice.
  2. The Yakuza - Dave Grusin (Varese)

    I missed out on the FSM release. I saw the film not too long ago. Mitchum is great (as always). The score has that irresistible early-70s urban sound combined with some "Japanese" elements. Aside from the latter, it is comparable to his scores for "Three Days of the Condor" and "The Friends of Eddie Coyle." Varese releases are always top notch, but with film scores, you are always dealing with surviving elements. I am fairly certain that this one is stereo from the multi-track masters.
  3. The Yakuza - Dave Grusin (Varese)

    Varese Sarabande is reissuing Dave Grusin's score to the 1974 neo-noir gangster film The Yakuza, starring Robert Mitchum. This had been available on CD from Film Sore Monthly, but it is now out of print. The new release is limited to 1,500 copies. https://www.varesesarabande.com/collections/limited-edition-series/products/yakuza-the

  5. Marian McPartland's "Reprise"

    Always loved her bossa album on the Time label:
  6. New Thelonious Monk album

    Thanks. I'm waiting for the CD. I'm used to 1990s LP prices.
  7. New Thelonious Monk album

    How is the sound on this? Stereo or mono? Well-balanced? Does any of the cover art or inserts feature stills from the film, or is it all pictures of Monk? Does the book talk about the film?
  8. George Duvivier corner

    He is on a lot of east coast space age bachelor pad albums.

    Dave Pell has the distinction of having the greatest album title ever in the history of LP records: The Liberty LP JAZZ VOICES IN VIDEO! When I first found this LP in a thrift store, I could not stop obsessively saying "Jazz Voices in Video" over and over again. Here is a track: In this capacity, he produced what must be the greatest exotica one-off LP ever, Robert Drasnin's Voodoo.

  15. You start a thread, in a public forum, about the state of a company that manufacturers high-end horse-drawn carriages, and then you tell the participants that they are going off topic because they acknowledge the popularity of the automobile? It is irrelevant whether Mosaic is unable to offer downloads; but the fact that they don't offer downloads is nevertheless relevant. Virtually everything brought up in that thread - including an aging/dying audience, downloads, streaming, pricing, content, and presentation - have all contributed to the state that Mosaic is in. The fact that some of these factors are beyond Mosaic's control does not mean that all of their decisions have been good ones. Oh, and the person starting a conversation cannot control every turn that conversation takes. Someone who allegedly listens to jazz, of all things, should have picked up on that by now.
