Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... $6.99
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 Banda Black RioGafiera Universal ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal funk by one of Brazil's greatest groups! Earth Wind & Fire had nothing on Banda Black Rio – as the Brazilian combo mixed together smooth jazz funk, soulful vocals, and great production, into a sound that rivaled any of America's best mainstream funk acts of the 70s! This album's easily their best – and is filled with tight jazzy groovers that we come back to again and again over the years, digging them for their great rhythms and tight instrumentation, never noticing the fact that the lyrics aren't in English! Includes the cuts "Chega Mais", "Tico Tico No Fuba", "Danca Do Dia", "Vidigal", "Gafiera Universal", and the totally great "Cravo e Canela", one of the sneakiest guitar groovers you'll ever hear! 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 ... $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
