New Zumba CincoZumba Cinco ... CD
Musidisc/Whatmusic (UK), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A jazzy groover from 60s Brazil – filled with excellent work on vibes and percussion! The Zumba Cinco features a lineup that includes vibes, guitar, piano, bass, and drums – and they groove with the best of the small combo bossa jazz groups of the time, crackling with fire and energy that takes them way past the gentle versions of bossa nova recorded by the bigger ensembles. The mix of vibes and piano is especially great – grooving in a style that's almost a bossa version of the Roy Ayers/Jack Wilson albums cut in the US at the same time. A great record throughout, and a must-have for any fan of bossa jazz! Titles include "Blusology", "Bem De Amar", "Garota De Toquinha", "Tema Feliz", "Hard Day's Night", "Zumba Tema", and "Quintessencia". CD

New Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
