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 Sivuca & Rosinha De ValencaSivuca & Rosinha De Valenca Ao Vivo ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $5.99
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
