  • Various - Mambo, Cha Cha Cha & Calypso Vol 4: European Session LP + CD

    22,00

    Grouped together under one Caribbean banner, these typically Cuban melodies from the 1930s (Mambo) and
    ‘50s (Cha-cha-cha), further spicened with Trinidadian tunes from 1915 onwards (Calypso) bubble over to
    form a frothing tryptic of irresistible dance songs. First released in the States, these sunny melodies very
    rapidly spread around the world following the First World War…
    After having first explored a bouquet of female singers (Vol. I), followed by the wild extravagance of this music
    (Vol. II) and finally its links to Blues (Vol. III), El Vidocq here focuses on the impact and influences of Mambo,
    Cha-cha-cha and Calypso within other regions of the world. Volume quatro: Europe! A hip-swaying road trip
    through Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and last but not least France. Benefitting from markedly
    mixed ensembles – for these countries often opened their arms to exiled musicians – the songs here
    spotlighted are all strongly influenced by the Caribbean while yet retaining their own national flavors.
    How can you not succumb to “La Suppa de Pichon” by Belgium’s Los Merecumbes, or to the “Cha Cha Twist” by
    Spain’s Margarita Sierra? You’re sure to ᴉOlé! the “Torero” by the UK’s very own The Southlanders, while
    shaking your bum to Bordeaux’s Ben y su Tumba and his fiery “Tequila” as audacious as the original by Chuck
    Rio!
    Where in the world are we? And when? What the hell are we doing?! Gracias, danke schön Jukebox Music
    Factory, for having once again shattered the yawnful space-time continuum!!

  • Various - Sex-O-Rama LP + CD (LP)

    22,00

    SEX-O-RAMA
    What a relief to escape the humdrum, to conquer one’s ennui, to spice up the too-long evenings stuck at
    home… Here’s a proposition: SEX-O-RAMA!!! Oh la la, such an aptly named compilation! Rascally El
    Vidocq this time dares to sway outside his comfort zone. Here humanity’s oldest obsession is tackled
    tastefully, with class. The selection is amusing, but ever well-meaning, for these songs are as stimulating
    to listen to as they are to dance to! Naturally, our intrepid collector had to roam beyond his habitual ‘50s
    and ‘60s, for the real sexual revolution did occur a tad later… A few seductive caresses of varying
    insistence (Michele Mercier, Geraldine), a few advances “in due and proper form” (naughty Prince Buster!),
    an eloquent series of moans and groans (Rita, Armando Travaioli, Noelia Noel), chance encounters
    (intransigent Jean Yanne)… not to mention a few exquisite parodies (Jacqueline Mayand and Bourvil, as
    drole as they are tender)… So hesitate no longer! Stop biting your lip! The sap is rising, as they say, so
    time for a change of ambiance… Time to slip on some SEX-O-RAMA!

  • Various - Mambo, Cha Cha Cha & Calypso Vol 3: Blues Session! LP + CD (LP)

    22,00

    El Vidocq pursues his ‘Mambo, Cha-Cha-Cha & Calypso’ voyage with this third, vitamin-D-rich ensemble: ‘Blues Session’. Following in the footsteps of the feminine first volume and insane second ensemble, he here explores the rawest roots of this warm, sun-drenched music. What a delight to discover these groovy tunes from the ‘50s and ‘60s uniquely fusing R’n’B, Rock n’ Roll and Blues. Memphis Slim, Johnny Otis and other legends here loosen up to welcome exotic south-of-the-border influences. Noro Morales and his piano return to their sunny roots,
    while Sir Lancelot’s voice accompanies a beach bonfire and Eddie Bo declares his love for island melodies… Jukebox Music Factory shares with you an austral archipelago of ageless charms!

  • Williams Joe - Basie & Beyond 1955-1957 (CD)

    13,00

    Here are 22 tracks illustrating Joe Williams’ transition from Count Basie’s greatest singer to a solo star in the jazz world. The set begins with 10 tracks from his tenure with Basie recorded between 1955 and 1957. The second half of this set features his debut LP released in 1957 ’A Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry’ which is featured in its entirety from tracks 11-22.

    This is a wonderful mix of rocking blues and sophisticated ballads from a performer of immense importance who after leaving his tenure with the Basie band in 1961 went on to record scores of excellent albums.

    Sit back and listen as Joe Williams wraps his rich baritone voice around these superb tracks.

    Fully detailed liner notes.

  • Clark Sonny - Cool Struttin´(180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Conrad Yeatis Clark, otherwise known as Sonny Clark, was in many ways the quintessential hard bop pianist. Possessed of an enviable lyrical flow and a wealth of inventive melodic ideas that unfurled with clarity and without fuss, Clark had a deeply rooted feeling for the blues.

    After moving from his hometown of Pittsburgh to New York, Clark emerged as a ubiquitous presence on Blue Note starting in 1957. It was on his fifth Blue Note date as a leader that Clark arrived at his masterwork, Cool Struttin’, recorded in January 1958 with a top-shelf quintet featuring Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums. The album has only grown in stature as a timeless hard bop classic since Clark’s premature death at age 31 in 1963.

    This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

  • Smith Jimmy - Back At The Chicken Shack (180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Jimmy Smith was a self-taught pianist who abandoned the instrument in 1954 in favour of the Hammond B3 organ, renting a Philadelphia warehouse and woodshedding for a year until he emerged with a revolutionary style that immediately caught the ear of Alfred Lion. The Blue Note boss dubbed him The Incredible Jimmy Smith and recorded the B3 innovator as frequently as he could between 1956 and 1963.

    It’s a testament to Smith’s volcanic creativity that he recorded not one but two soul jazz classics — Midnight Special and Back at the Chicken Shack — when he entered Rudy Van Gelder’s studio on April 25, 1960 with Stanley Turrentine on tenor saxophone, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Donald Bailey on drums.

  • Davis Miles - Ascenseur Pour L’Echafaud (180 gram, Coloured) (LP)

    20,00

    It was recorded at Le Poste Parisien Studio in Paris on December 4 and 5, 1957. The album features the musical cues for the 1958 Louis Malle film Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud.

    Jean-Paul Rappeneau, a jazz fan and Malle’s assistant at the time, suggested asking Miles Davis to create the film’s soundtrack – possibly inspired by the Modern Jazz Quartet’s recording for Roger Vadim’s Sait-on jamais (Does One Ever Know), released a few months earlier in 1957.

    Davis was booked to perform at the Club Saint-Germain in Paris for November 1957. Rappeneau introduced him to Malle, and Davis agreed to record the music after attending a private screening. On December 4, he brought his four sidemen to the recording studio without having had them prepare anything. Davis only gave the musicians a few rudimentary harmonic sequences he had assembled in his hotel room, and, once the plot was explained, the band improvised without any precomposed theme, while edited loops of the musically relevant film sequences were projected in the background.

    The soundtrack was not released on its own in the USA but ten songs from this soundtrack were released as one side of the album Jazz Track which received a 1960 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Performance, Solo or Small Group.

    This soundtrack might also be referred to as ”Elevator to the Gallows (French: Ascenseur pour l’échafaud; previously known as Frantic in the US), also known as Lift to the Scaffold (UK)”.

    13,00

    28 tracks of music mostly from the world of jazz and r&b to take your clothes off to.

    8 of these titles come from a famous 1950s LP called ’How To Strip for Your Husband’ and most of the other tracks and artists come from the world of jazz and r&b.
