Sorry for the lack o' links in today's post, it's my 1st wedding anniversary and I've got better things to do ;) See you in a few days!
Dusty Groove review: Gone With The Wave is a Lalo Schifrin score for a Bruce Brown-like surfing documentary in the mid 60s -- but instead of the usual guitar riffing and bongo drumming on such a soundtrack, Lalo uses a lot of jagged jazzy lines -- working in a bit of light bossa, some heavier Latin rhythms, and plenty of cool instrumentation! The players alone make the set worth having -- especially the percussion from Milt Holland, Francisco Aguabella, and Shelly Manne -- as well as the light guitar touches from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, and Laurindo Almeida. Paul Horn plays some great alto sax and flute on the set, Victor Feldman's on piano, and Frank Rosolino's on trombone -- and Lalo changes up the instrumentation from track to track to really keep the overall feel of the set incredibly fresh!
blaxploitation.com review: One of Schifrin's harder-to-find US scores, this killer surf jazz soundtrack features a great West Coast band inclduing Shelley Manne, Paul Horn and Howard Roberts. It's a driving, hard jazz score with some interesting elements from other cultures. Check out 'A taste of bamboo' and 'Breaks bossa nova' among many tasty tracks on here - but remember, it's jazz, daddio, so forget the funk for now...
