Altruda, Joey

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Altruda, Joey - Cocktails With Joey Cocktails With Joey
Jazz New - LP WIL 039 Will Records
Sealed, Rare 1995 Original Featuring A Nude On The Cover. This Entry In The Lounge Revival Is A Real Sleeper. While Combustible Edison And Others Generated More National Attention, Altruda Put Together A Recording That Relies Less On Retro-Kitsch And More On Sophisticated Arrangements And Fine Playing. Henry Mancini Is An Obvious Touch-Point For This Effort, With The Maestro's "The Brother's Go To Mothers" (Originally Featured As Incidental Music In 1959's Peter Gunn Television Series) Providing A Superb Organ-Led Workout. Altruda's Own "A Martini For Mancini," Is A Worthy Bossa-Nova Homage To The Master, Featuring Lively Vibes, Flute And Hammond B-3, Accompanied By A Swanky, Swirling Horn Arrangement. Altruda's Originals Feature Elements Of Several '50s Masters In Addition To Mancini. The Latin Sounds Of Perez Prado, And The Inventive Arrangements Of Juan Garcia Esquivel Are Obvious Influences, As Are The Soundtracks Of Ennio Morricone And Nino Rota, And The Exotica Sounds Of Martin Denny And Arthur Lyman. The Opener, "Tropical Espionage" Blends The Bird Calls Of Denny With A Sophisticated Horn Chart And A Bird-Like Flute Lead. "Remembering Jobim" Features The Stan Getz-Inspired Saxophone Of Doug Webb And A Melody Mindful Of Antonio Carlos Jobim's Classics.... more details
