Bachianas Brasilieras #5  performed by Lalo Schifrin  1964
Composed by Hector Villa-Lobos

Beautiful summery easy-bossa arrangement of this Villa-Lobos orchestral piece. The tempo floats along at a lazy pace, augmented by gorgeous piano and flute solos, then comes to an abrupt end with a very cool bass riff. Apparently, Schifrin recorded another version of this song in 1996 on the "Gillespiana" album, and that features Karlheinz Stockhausen's son Markus playing trumpet!

from New Fantasy (Verve V-8601)

Saturday Night in Knightsbridge  performed by Rod McKuen  1968
Composed by McKuen

Lord knows that I would never recommend a McKuen vocal, but this tight, jazzy little soundtrack instrumental is quite another matter. This cut moves along rather nicely, with a cool taut rhythm. The arrangement was written by Arthur Greenslade, a longtime collaborator of both Serge Gainsbourg and Alan Hawkshaw.

from Joanna (20th Century Fox)



Zazueira  performed by Astrud Gilberto & Stanley Turrentine  1971
Composed by Jorge Ben

A very funky track from Astrud's final US album. Very bass-heavy and percussive, just an excellent song. Stanley Turrentine's tenor sax doesn't meld with Gilberto's voice nearly as well as Stan Getz' warmer tones did, but that's a minor flaw that doesn't detract from the overall song too much.

from Gilberto with Turrentine (CTI), available on CD (CTI)


The Sugar Cane  performed by David McCallum  1966
Composed by David Axelrod

Interesting early composition/production work from Axelrod. Vaguely calypso-inspired orchestral pop with a very prominent piccolo and what sounds like a French horn solo...I think that I hear a glockenspiel in there, as well. All layered over trademark Axelrod drums and a cool walking bassline.

from Music...A Part of Me (Capitol)



  18 May 02 ·Sem Sinatra: I'd be interested to know exactly what David McCallum did on this track ... maybe the glockenspiel
  24 May 02 ·tinks: well, according to the liner notes, he supposedly is the conductor of the thing. i've seen his conducting in action in the film "the big tnt show" and all that i can say is that it looks sorta dubious.
  30 Oct 03 ·utada: David McCallum's father played french horn for the london symphony-he played french horn on the Beatles "for no one"-I think this is he and not the son
Warm Up  performed by Henry Mancini  1973
Composed by Mancini

Strange, plodding piece for this film about the '72 Munich Olympics. Very odd tempo (7/4 time?) with a warm cornet right up front that interplays nicely with the organ.

from Visions of Eight (RCA Victor)
