New Leo GandelmanVip Vop (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Leogandelman (Brazil), 2012. Used ... $9.99
One of the best new recordings in years from Brazilian reedman Leo Gandelman – a set that's got a lean, mean groove that's just right for the album's mix of samba, bossa, and jazz! Leo's right out front in the arrangements on saxes – but there's also a really unified groove on the set too – that old school bossa nova way of packing all the instruments together on the rhythms, creating this soaring sound that seems to unlock some of the most expressive solos we've heard from Gandelman in awhile. Some points have a slight dose of soul jazz energy too – as you might guess from the look of the cover – and the set also comes packaged with bonus video footage of most tracks too. Titles include "Luz Azul", "Sinal Vermelho", "Nego Ta Sabendo", "Vip Vop", "Reza" and "Camisa 7". CD

Gilberto GilLouvacao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Used ... $14.99
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in bossa nova, but which really moves past its basic approach – showing some of the deeper, darker, more sophisticated tunes you'd find in similar early music by Nara Leao or Gal Costa! The songwriting is superb – of the sort that already had many others picking up some of Gil's important early tunes for their own recordings – and there's a nice nod to deeper Brazilian roots in some of the arrangements, particularly the regions that were sometimes pushed into the corners of the culture. Arrangements are by Dori Caymmi and others – and titles include Gil's classic "Roda", which was covered by many artists, but done brilliantly here in the original – plus "Lovacao", "Maria", "Ensaio Geral", "Lunik 9", and "Procissao" – all early classics!

Gilberto GilPersonalidade ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/1987. Used ... $6.99
Although we always get loads of requests for his stuff, the best early work of Gilberto Gil is always darn tough to find, even on CD. Now, Polygram has put together this excellent 16 track compilation that brings together Gilberto Gil's best stuff from the late 60's and early 70's, plus a few tracks from later years. There's a nice batch of material here that comes from his Tropicalia years, plus other stuff from the early 70's that show his style maturing a lot, and which focus on his beautiful voice and songwriting skills. The CD's a real treat, and includes many tracks that we haven't been able to find for years – including "Back In Bahia", "Roda", "Domingou", "Oriente", "Louvacao", "Bate Macumba", "Lunik 9", "Maracatu Atomico", and more! If you've ever bought one of his weak albums from recent years, you owe it to yourself to get this one to find out just how great he is! CD
