New Milton BananaSambas De Bossa ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1970s/1993. Used ... $12.99
Tight bossa tracks from one of Brazil's best drummers! We've got to admit, we're not exactly sure when this one's from. Although the copyright date says 1993, we think that this stuff's from the 70s from the production sound – and has been repackaged in a dateless compilation by RCA. The tracks are short little bossa ditties, and nice samba grooves – all with warm jazzy production. Milton's drums are as hot as they always are, with the kind of tight snare action that made his 60s recordings amongst some of the best bossa records of the time. Cuts include "Flor De Liz", "Meu Guri", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Mas Que Nada", and "La Vem A Baiana". CD

New Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

New Lisa OnoRio Bossa ... CD
BMG (Japan), 2000. Used ... $18.99
Lovely work from this Japanese bossa singer – produced with a classic sound by the great Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo plays piano on the album, and also handles the arrangements – but it's Lisa's lovely voice that makes the whole thing work, singing out clear as a bell on tracks like "Baiaozinho", "Giro", "Dom De Iludir", "Festa De Rua", and "Sambadouro".

New Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

New Wilson SimonalWilson Simonal Canta Tom E Chico ... CD
EMI (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Wilson Simonal sings the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico Buarque – served up in a wonderful collection of sides from his years at EMI and BMG! The style here is a mix of bossa orchestrations for the Jobim tunes and more driving, samba-based ones for Chico's numbers – and Simonal sings soulfully throughout, working in that "touch of jazz" mode that graced his best recordings of the early years – a wonderful style-bridging mode that few other Brazilian vocalists could match! Titles include "Ana Luiza", "Tem Mais Samba", "Inutil Paisagem", "So Saudade", "Discussao", "A Banda", "Ligia", "Cordao", and "Sonho De Um Carnaval". CD

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 (US pressing) ... CD
Philips, 1993. Used ... $3.99
Well, it's not the 60s anymore – but this is still a wonderful album that reunites Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the spirit of their Tropicalia years – done in a style that shows that creative invention was still alive in MPB during the 90s! There's echoes here of modes to come by artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Lenine, or Chico Science – all of whom are clearly influenced by the spirit of Veloso and Gil. Acoustic guitars mix with rhythm samples and abstract production – and Caetano and Gil's vocals shine as wonderfully as ever – possibly even more so, given the warmth that comes from their age. Titles include "Cinema Novo", "Nossa Gente", "Dada", "Aboio", "Baiao Atemporal", "As Coisas", "Rap Popcreto", and a version of Jimi Hendrix's "Wait Until Tomorrow". CD
