Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy .... $9.99 15.98
Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". CD

Egberto GismontiCoracoes Futuristas ... CD
EMI/Bomba (Japan), 1976. New Copy .... $29.99
An amazing tribute not just to the rich imagination of the young Egberto Gismonti – but also to the vivid sound of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album leaps past any easy definitions – as bits of jazz, MPB, serious scoring, folkloric styles, and other elements come into play – often in the space of a single song – and Gismonti's own keyboards and guitar are mixed with really collaborative efforts from Joyce, Danilo Caymmi, Marcio Montarroyos, and other leading lights of the Brazilian underground at the time! The tunes are quite visionary – in a way that's as sublime as Gismonti's legendary 1973 album – and production is other-worldly, at a level that few Anglo albums could hope to match at the time. Titles include the classic "Cafe" – plus Baiao Do Acordar", "Danca Das Cabecas", "Carmo", "Polichinelo", "Trem Noturno", and "Ano Zero". CD

New Antonio AdolfoFeito Em Casa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet set of 70s fusion tracks from Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando". LP, Vinyl record album
