New Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... $8.99
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 Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $8.99
Darkly brilliant – and one of Joao Donato's most fantastic records! The set was recorded during Joao's time in America in the mid 60s – cut in New York with lofty backings by Claus Ogerman, in a pillowy soft mode that fits perfectly with Joao's light bossa piano lines, and which has all the hints of sadness and moodiness that often creep into his playing. The complicated approach of the album far surpasses some of Joao's work from Brazil at the same time – and the album's one of the best of its generation, a sublime mix of all elements that still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1965! Titles include "Amazonas", "Glass Beads", "Sugarcane Breeze", "Vento Do Canavail", "It Didn't End", and "O Barquinho". CD

New Lisa OnoEsperanca ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1994. Used ... $18.99
A beautiful piece of Brazilian jazz – one that has Japanese singer Lisa Ono working with some of Brazil's best instrumentalists, like Zeca Assumpcao, Cristovao Bastos, Paulo Moura, Danilo Caymmi, and even Tom Jobim! The set's at least as good as any of the recent bossa-revival sessions on the Lumiar label – but probably even better, as Lisa's lovely voice really sends us, and she's one of the best modern bossa singers we've ever heard! Titles include "Estrada Branca", "A Gafiera", "Samba De Enredo", "Um Beija Flor", and "Praia Nova". CD

New VariousFocus On – Romantic Samba ... CD
BMG (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used ... $4.99
Although the thought's romantic, the music on this one's still quite lively – very much in a modern samba mode, with a focus on tunes from the BMG catalog of the past 25 years. There's a total of 15 tracks in all – and titles include "Danca Da Solidao" by Beth Carvalho, "Eu E Ela" by Grupo Raca, "Falsa Consideracao" by Marquinhos Sata, "O Teu Chamego" by Grupo Raca, "Ex Amor" by Martinho Da Vila, "Marrom Bombom" by Os Morenos, "Depois Do Prazer" by So Pra Contrariar, and "Anatomia" by Grupo Malicia.

New Lisa Ono with Joao DonatoMinha Saudade ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1994. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A lovely bit of modern bossa from Japan! Lisa Ono's got a cool jazzy voice, and it sounds wonderful amidst the records arrangements by Joao Donato – some of the best that he's done in years, and encompassing a full range of his work, from the early bossa years, to the wonderful electric recordings of the 70s. If you dig Joao's classic Quem E Quem album, you'll really appreciate some of the work on here – but the record's equally appealing to any fan of jazzy Brazilian vocals. Titles include "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Ate Quem Sabe", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Quem Diz Que Sabe", "Brisa Do Mar", "Sambou Sambou", and "Terremoto". CD

New Sivuca & Rosinha De ValencaSivuca & Rosinha De Valenca Ao Vivo ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great live set from Sivuca – the Brazilian singer and accordionist who's crafted some incredibly groovy recordings over the years! Sivuca's working here with Rosinha De Valenca – the famous female guitarist who was one of Brazil's greatest players on the instrument – and her guitar work makes Sivuca's tunes dance nicely in the vein of his groove-heavy classics for the Vanguard label a few years before the time of this session. The album includes a great reading of "Asa Branca" – plus the tracks "Adeus Maria Fulo", "Lamento", "Reuniao De Tristeza", and "Tema Do Boneco De Palha". CD

New Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 (US pressing) ... CD
Philips, 1993. Used ... $7.99
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

New Vinicius CantuariaCymbals ... CD
Koch, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Vinicius Cantuaria – an album with a bit of bossa in the mix, but a bit more depth too – a sound that stretches out with a wonderful sense of feeling throughout! Cantuaria's vocals have just gotten better and better with age – not "old", but emotionally mature – in ways that carry a hell of a lot with just a little bit of effort – drenching each line of a tune with a personal sensibility that's really amazing. Backings are as simple as the vocals – but like the singing, they too have a sense of well-placed "rightness" that makes each tune sparkle anew – a magical combination of percussion, acoustic guitar, and some occasional violin or cello – all used in just the right ways to fit the mood of the tune. And even though Cantuaria's vocals are all in Portuguese, they still have a way of getting to us even though we can't understand the language – really pushing past the confines of language into some sweet sort of universal space. Titles include "Ominira", "Tua Cara", "Champs De Mars", "Voce E Eu", "Galope", "Voce Esta Sumindo", "Prantos", and "Chuva". CD

New Antonio Carlos JobimStone Flower ... CD
CTI, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the magic of Jobim's wonderful compositions, but gives them a slightly more fluid feel too – in a way that's somewhat more sophisticated than the sound of Jobim's previous CTI outings – Tide and Wave. Other players on the album include Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, and Airto on percussion – and there's a great mix of Brazilian and American styles on the set – electric, sinister, breezy, and always wonderful! Includes the titles "Sabia", "God & The Devil In The Land Of The Sun", "Children's Games", "Stone Flower", "Brazil", "Tereza My Love", and "Choro". Plus, this CD reissue features an alternate take of the song "Brazil". CD
