Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $14.99
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba".

New VariousReturn To Paradise – A History Of Exotica ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy .... $6.99
An excellent summation of the exotica sound of the 50s – that wonderful period when mood music started getting really interesting – thanks to an infusion of island-inspired sounds in the postwar years! The music here represents the pinnacle of 50s exotica – amazing records by some of the bigger names in the genre, mixed with some lesser-known gems that make the collection way more interesting than some of the more easily-done exotica sets on the market. There's plenty of weird rhythms, odd percussion, unusual sounds, and dreamy melodies – and titles include "Chant Of The Moon" by Robert Drasnin, "Lotus Land" by Gene Rains, "Summer Storm" by John McFarland, "Paradise" by Paul Conrad, "Kashmiri Love Song" by Korla Pandit, "Coronation" by Martin Denny, "Mwanza Market Place" by Tak Shindo, "Mountain High Valley Low" by The Markko Polo Adventurers, "Strange Echoes" by Frank Hunter, and "Jungle Flute" by Xavier Cugat.
