Easy Listening
2009-02-17 21:38:00
My couple of previous posts concerning reception of BBC World Service English language programmes on short-wave in Europe led me to wondering whether there wasn't a more elegant solution to the problem of identifying which frequencies to tune to at any given time of the day.As it happens, every 6 months, the majority of international broadcasters get together and sit down to negotiate and co-ordinate their HF frequency usage for the coming 6 months at a conference known as the High Frequency Co-ordination Conference. The resulting plans (know as the Winter and Summer seasons) are published on the web. So with a little ingenuity and a few spare hours, Wireless Waffle proudly presents:* The 'find a frequency in a given language, for a particular broadcaster (or both) analysis tool' *(catchy name isn't it?!)It works like this: You can select broadcasts in a particular language, or by a particular broadcaster in which case you will be presented with a list of trans...
Some easy listening on the blame game
2008-04-01 20:26:00
We came across an interesting discussion this week from the BBC’s BizDaily — a conversation about where the blame should lie for the credit crunch. It begins with an argument that the current auditing model, where for-profit businesses pay fees to other for-profit businesses to regulate them, is fundamentally flawed due to inherent conflicts of interest ...
101 Strings, The Petards, and The Spots - Love is Blue [1967, Vinyl]
2008-01-19 16:55:00
One of the most prolific and reliable names in instrumental easy listening music, the 101 Strings Orchestra has literally recorded hundreds of albums since its inception in 1957. Their trademark sound is built on a reverence for melody, pristine production, and a pleasant, relaxing ambience; while occasional albums have concentrated on brass, piano, guitars, and even mild rock & roll rhythms, the string section ? true to the group's name ? nearly always remains front and center, because of its lush, soothing sound qualities. Most of their albums were built around some unifying theme, whether the work of a well-known artist or songwriter, a specific topic (patriotism, holidays, et al.), TV/ movie themes, songs from a particular country, revampings of familiar tunes from other genres, and so on. The group was founded by producer/engineer Dick L. Miller, who was searching for a way to mimic the sound and style of orchestras led by "name" conductors like Mantovani, without the expe...

Bert Kaempfert - A Man Could Get Killed [1966]
2008-01-19 16:53:00
Bert Kaempfert had almost too much talent, ability, and good luck rolled into one career to be fully appreciated, even by his own chosen audience, the lovers of fine orchestral pop music. He was one of the most successful conductors, arrangers, and recording artists in the latter field, but was also a major producer and played a key (if indirect) role in the roots of the British beat boom of the early '60s, which evolved into the British Invasion of America in 1964. Berthold Kaempfert was born in Barmbek, a working class section of Hamburg, Germany, in 1923. He was musically inclined as a boy, and found that interest indulged by an act of fate when he was six years old ? Kaempfert was injured in a car accident and his mother used the money from the settlement to buy him a piano. He became proficient at the keyboard, and also on the clarinet and saxophone, among other instruments.

Les Baxter - Hells Belles [1969, Vinyl]
2008-01-19 16:51:00
Les Baxter is a pianist who composed and arranged for the top swing bands of the '40s and '50s, but he is better known as the founder of exotica, a variation of easy listening that glorified the sounds and styles of Polynesia, Africa, and South America, even as it retained the traditional string-and-horn arrangements of instrumental pop. Exotica became a massively popular trend in the '50s, with thousands of record buyers listening to Baxter, Martin Denny, and their imitators. Baxter also pioneered the use of the electronic instrument the theremin, which has a haunting, howling soundTrack list;01 - Wheels. 2:5602 - Hells belles. 1:5503 - Soul groove. 2:1504 - Dans theme. 2:3405 - Hot wind. 1:5306 - Take it from me. 2:0407 - Chain fight. 2:2809 - Dan again. 1:3410 - Hogin machine. 1:3611 - Scoobee doo. 1:5812 - Goin home. 0:5813 - Lanas theme. 2:5214 - Love beat of the city. 3:2215 - Tinder mist. 2:4316 - San Franciso at night. 3:32[192k]

Les Baxter - Space Escapade [1958, Vinyl]
2008-01-19 16:49:00
A real period piece, Space Escapade is a definitive slice of lounge/bachelor pad music. The music, of course, is a bit dated, although it certainly shows off Baxter's chops as a big-band leader. One reason to get the record, however, is the cover ? two astronauts holding goblets of exotic (and potentially lethal) cocktails, surrounded by three very attractive Martian women, and in the background, a silhouette of a rocket. All cloaked in dry ice. This record has sold for decades on the cover artwork alone, and you'll see why if (and when) you pick it up.

Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass - Lonely Bull [1962]
2008-01-19 16:45:00
The colossus that is A&M Records starts right here with the first album by the 1960s instrumental juggernaut known as the Tijuana Brass. True, there was no "Tijuana Brass" per se at this time; just Herb Alpert and a coterie of Los Angeles sessionmen, with Alpert overdubbing himself on trumpet to get that bullring effect. Also, Alpert was just getting the TJB concept underway; the textures are leaner, the productions less polished, and the accent is more consciously on a Mexican mariachi ambience ? the relatively square rhythms, the mandolins, the mournful, wistful siesta feeling ? than the records down the road. The hit title track (originally a tune called "Twinkle Star"!) is a cleverly structured, exciting and haunting piece of record-making ? and its composer, Sol Lake, becomes the charter member of Alpert's team of TJB tunesmiths with several more ethnic-flavored numbers. In accordance with the newly emerging bossa nova movement, Alpert does a nice, straightforward, authent...

Heavy, groovy, funky and easy madness from the West Germany scene of the 60s & 70s.Here is an absolutely superb collection of phasered funky & groovy tracks of the 60's & 70's from various German music libraries. Rarity of the work aside, though, the tunes are totally great - and really hard-hitting in a heavily electric vibe. Most numbers have really heavy drums coming into play with fuzzed out guitars, tripped out keyboards, and some occasional larger arrangements as well -- and there's often this cool flanged-out production on the tunes that further enforces the spacey quality of their grooves, in a way that makes for a really unique batch of tracks! . An absolute top quality compilation and an absolute must-own!01. Don't Play That Game 1 - Klaus Weiss02. UFO Invasion - Gerhard Narholz03. Intercity - Fred Rabold04. Brass Glitter - Ambros Seelos05.

Piero Umiliani - Requiem Per Un Agente Segreto OST
2007-09-30 22:44:00
Piero Umiliani - Requiem Per Un Agente Segreto OSTLabel - GDMReleased - 1967Style - Jazz, Lounge, Spy, Easy Listening, Soundtrack(From Score Baby):He's always ready to "kiss" and to "bang". That's what the liner notes tell us of the seasoned secret agent played by Hollywood legend Stewart Granger in Requiem per un Agente Segreto -- one of the actor's many European spy flicks of the late 60s.Umiliani's score is jazzy, and features multiple guitars, keyboards, voice, bass, drums, brass, woodwinds, strings. The music is by turns spare and atmospheric, other times propulsive and full bodied, but never bloated.Requiem... may sometimes seem like Umiliani's Bond soundtrack, but it's stylistically closer to a Jerry Cotton score. It's more Peter Thomas, than it is John Barry. Barry's spy music is more orchestal, almost mythic in tone. Thomas's spy jazz doesn't take itself so seriously.Although Umiliani's arrangements are fairly straight forward in comparison to Thomas' often wild...

Songs That Relax Me
2007-09-06 16:00:00
Though I have my rocker moments (you should see what I listen to when I'm doing my Friday cleaning) there's a time when I want to slow down and take things a little easier. Maybe I'm getting old but here's a list of my favorites from my lengthy "easy listening" playlist--and don't worry I'm not quite to the "Carpenters-and-Manilow Phase" yet.1. "River" by Sarah McLachlan. Every time Andrew hears me listening to this beautiful ballad he points out that "It's a Christmas song!" but that hasn't stopped me from listening to it for the past eight months. So what? It's not as if it's got Jingle Bells going in the background. Oh, well, maybe it does now that I think about it. Who cares, it's wonderful--and it's sad, what's Christmasy about that?2. "Constellations" by Jack Johnson. Ever since his Curious George gig Jack Johnson's been on the radar but I was listening to this long before--it really gives the flavor of his Maui roots which I find so tasty. He has an ac...

Piero Umiliani - To-day's SoundLabel - Easy TempoReleased - 1997Style - Funk, Soul, Jazz, Latin, Samba, Lounge, Easy Listening, Music Library, Lee LibraryNotes (from Movie Grooves)A welcome repressing of another of Piero Umiliani's fantastic library records from the early 70s when he established his own publishing company and studios (also see The Man and the City).The original LP, only pressed in 300 copies exchanges hands for about $500 or more. Some of the tracks on To-Day's Sound were used in movies; apparently the track "Open Space" is used at the start of Baba Yaga (1973).(from Dusty Groove)More fantastic wild stuff by this Italian genius! This CD is filled with cool groovy little cuts featuring the maestro himself on moog, Fender Rhodes, and marimba -- plus instrumentation that includes vibes, flute, and Lowry and Hammond organs. Even more wild than the classic Sweden Heaven & Hell LP, with cool little cuts like "Safari Club", "Free Dimension", "Truck Driver", and "Music o...

Piero Piccioni - Colpo Rovente (The Original Complete Motion Picture Soundtrack)Label - Easy TempoReleased - 1970Style - Electronic, Psychedelic, Jazz, Abstract, Easy Listening, Soundtrack, Library(from Dusty Groove)One of the best Italian scores we've heard in ages! The soundtrack is one of the best-ever by the great Piero Piccioni -- and it's a swirling mix of organ riffs, soulful tenor, and throbbing basslines. Some tracks burst out with a heavy groovy sound, while others hang back in a pensive jazzy kind of way. As with the other Easy Tempo reissues, this one's got some incredible extra material -- for a total of 27 great tracks that we've already played again and again and again. Titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD".Tracklisting:1 Colpo Rovente (3:11)2 Kintabù (1:22)3 Black Flower (3:21)4 Identikit (1:27)5 LSD (Red Hot) (2:40)6 Eros (2:00)7 Fuoco (2:02)8 Easy Dreamer (Choir) (2:43)9 Chinatown Drugs (3:17)10 E...

Piero Umiliani - Il Corpo [Original Soundtrack]Label - Easy TempoReleased - 1974Style - Electronic, Jazz, Fusion, Ambient, Easy Listening, Library, Soundtrack(from Dusty Groove)Sweetly funky and very slinky -- this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo Crossfire -- but it's also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani! One of the best of the recent Easy Tempo reissues -- and very nicely put together, with a consistent sound throughout!Tracklisting:1. Free Life (Vocal)2. Tidal Stream3. In The End (Instrumental)4.

2007-07-20 17:16:00
Piero Umiliani - La Ragazza Fuori StradaLabel - Easy TempoReleased - 1975Style - Funk, Jazz, Easy Listening, Soundtrack, Library, OST(from scorebaby)The '75 release La Ragazza Fuori Strada (or "The Girl from the Street") starred Zeudi Araya, who also starred in Il Corpo and La Ragazza Dalla Pelle Di Luna for which Umiliani also contributed scores reissued by Easy Tempo. Zeudi is an exotic goddess to be sure, but what of the score? As expected, Umiliani's music is a thing of groovy beauty. He often uses an orchestra augmented by a crack rhythm section, but just as often goes solo on the organ or piano, or sticks with a small combo.Check out the crisp cymbal work, bubbling bass line and jazzy brass on "Nostalgia" -- all backed by organ and strings. Or how about that bouncing funkadelic of "Senza Tregua" with its stabbing organ lines and jangly rhythm guitar. There are 24 tracks in total, with some repetition of theme.(from musicfromthemovies)Fuori Strada already bears a strong influ...

Sound Book - Library & Background Sound [de Wolfe]

Sound Book - Library & Background Sound [De Wolfe Music Library]Discs 1 & 2Label - Irma / La DouceRecorded - 60s/70sStyle - Lounge, Jazz, Funk, Easy Listening, Music Library, Lee Library, OST(from scorebaby):This double disc collects the jazz funk of Euro-club cult fave De Wolfe, whose contribution to the soundtrack sub-genre of "library music" is of unusually high quality. The tracks are sophisticated. The performances are slick. At times, one gets the impression that the musicians who play on these sessions would have satisfied the most demanding band leaders. Sometimes the sound borders on progressive fusion, other times disco funk, and other times it almost sounds like Steely Dan, minus the singing, of course. Knowing its audience, Irma La Douche has provided brief descriptions for each of the 32 tracks. "New Project" is described as "beaty, important". "Harlem Globetrotters" is simply "medium tempo, percussion prominent". Although few of the tracks evoke anything particularily ...

Peter Thomas - Moonflowers & Mini-SkirtsLabel - Marina (Germany)Released - Late 60s/Early 70s/1998Style - Jazz/Lounge/Rock/Funk/Easy Listening/OST/Library(from Dusty Groove)Wonderful stuff! As you've probably noticed in our soundtrack section, we loooove Peter Thomas, the groovy German composer/bandleader who gave the world the cool soundtracks to Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille) and the Jerry Cotton films. Now the same folks who put together the cool Motor Music compilations have done this one of Thomas' other work from the late 60s and early 70s, and it's a real doozy! The sound's a mix of space age crime, groovy bossa tunes, cool now sound gems, and wild soundtrack-y material. Titles include "Uhr 20", "Opium", "Multi-Kolored Mini-Skirts", "Rockin' Computer", "Milky Way", "Meeting Polermo", "Flash Point", "Moonflower Q 70" and "Black Power", which has vocals by a very young Donna Summer! The sound is amazing, and the CD's a real treat to any fan of groovy Euro stuff from the la...

I Marc 4 - I Solisti Di Armando Trovajoli
2007-07-11 17:52:00
I Marc 4 - I Solisti Di Armando TrovajoliLabel - PlasticReleased - 2000Style - Latin Jazz/Jazz/Funk/Soundtrack/Libra-ry/Easy Listening(review borrowed from Orgy in Rhythm blog)This groovy album, recorded on Cometa (an obscure music library label) is a perfect mix of organ beat, bossa jazz, fast fuzz, batucada, samba beat with funky flute. Of course this is the first album by the legendary Marc 4 studio group - a funky Italian combo that often featured Armando Trovajoli on keyboards, plus backing by guitar, drums, and bass. The name I Marc 4 (or Marc 4) comes from the initials of their members: Maurizio Majorana (Bass), Antonello Vannucci (Hammond/Piano), Roberto Podio (Drums/Percussion) and Carlo Pes (guitar) who played and recorded most of Travajoi's compositions. The keyboards vary from funky organ to jangly electric harpsichord to sharp-edged piano and the group's sound is often complimented by some extra horn work.
