New CelesteCinco E Triste Da Manha ... CD
Tapecar/Amazon (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Moody female vocals from Brazil – a great early 70s album with a dreamy feel and a nice electric touch! In a way, the album's a fair bit like the Ana Mazzotti album from the same period, with a mix of some funky scatting vocal numbers, and other tunes that are more laidback, but which fit very nicely next to the uptempo cuts. Arrangements on some of the best numbers are by Meirelles, with a sweetly groovy electric feel that's similar to some of his own albums from the early 70s. Titles include "Foi Assim", "Como Posso Saber", "Sinal De Solidao", "Teia De Aranha", "Po", "Serrado", "Sonhos", and "Ronda Tristeza". CD

Gary CrissRio De Janeiro (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
Disco tunes with a Brazilian spirit – recorded in Philly by Gary Criss, but with all the sunny finish of Copacabana! The tunes were all arranged by John Davis – and have this soaring style that's really great – a mighty vibe that grabs onto all the best Davis energy and moves the grooves strongly – almost in a way that doesn't even need Gary's vocals! Most tunes have a lot of great conga work – which brings an early bottom to the tunes, especially amidst Criss' smoother vocals and the soaring strings in the arrangements – balancing things out in a surprisingly great way. Titles include "The Lady Is Latin", "Amazon Queen", "Rio De Janeiro", "The Girl From Ipanema", and "My Rio Lady". CD features bonus tracks – "Rio De Janeiro (Tom Moulton 12" mix)", "Rio De Janeiro (Richie Rivera 12" mix)", "Brazilian Nights (12" mix)", "Amazon Queen (12" mix)", "Rio De Janeiro (single version)", and "Brazilian Nights (single version)".

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A tight set of fusion from Sweetbottom – an American combo who definitely seem to draw a lot from the rock-inspired Euro fusion sound of a few years before! There's also a bit of the PM Records vibe – from the Steve Grossman/Gene Perla camp – lots of sharp, fast changes in the rhythms – and some heavy guitars at points, linking the group to Brand X a bit – and also some vocals on a few cuts, sure to please the rockish audiences who might be straying over to the fusion realm of the spectrum. The set's pretty sweet overall – tight, but without sounding slick – and the drums really drive some of the best numbers. Titles include "Veena Deva", "Monique", "Electro Strut", "Amazon Ritual", "Her", and "Shrapnel In My Ankle". LP, Vinyl record album

New Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Savage stuff! This is one of Les Baxter's greatest albums ever – and it's right on a par with African Jazz, which uses a similar formula: Plas Johnson's up front playing gutsy tenor, and Les is behind, working a large group of exotica players into a tribal frenzy of mellow grooves. Titles include "Amazon Falls", "Coco", "Isle Of Cuba", "Jungla Brava", "Go Chango", and "Blue Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousTrip To Brazil Vol 2 – Bossa & Beyond ... CD
EmArcy (Germany), 1999. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible – and one of our best-ever compilations of Brazilian music! This volume takes off where volume 1 ended – and it shows the rich evolution of Brazilian music during and after the bossa era, using a tasty batch of rare tracks to illustrate the wide range of styles that emerged during the late 60s and 1970s. Like the first volume, this one's extremely well packaged and well selected – and it features a total of 38 tracks on 2CDs, with liner notes and material that will appeal to the novice and collector alike. Tracks include "Fittipaldi Show" by Azymuth & Marcos Valle, "Ponteio" by Rogerio Duprat, "Marta E Romao" by Edu Lobo, "Pigmaliao" by Erlon Chaves, "Zazueira" by Elis Regina, "Odara" by Caetano Veloso & Nara Leao, "Mas Que Nada" by Ithamara Koorax & Azymuth, "April Child" by Leo Gandleman, "You & I" by Jon Hendricks, "Este Seu Olhar" by Joao Gilberto, "Ao Amigo Tom" by Claudette Soares & Som Tres, "Adeus Maria Fulo" by Os Mutantes, "Helena & I" by Mario Castro-Neves, "Meu Boi Bumba" by Thiago De Mello & Amazon, "Tu Veux Ou Tu Veux Pas" by Brigitte Bardot, and "Promise Of A Fisherman" by Sergio Mendes & Brazil '77. Great stuff – and sure to be one of our biggest sellers! CD

New Cal TjaderFried Bananas – Gorgeous Bossanova & Latin Rhythms Of The Brilliant Vibist ... CD
Skye/El (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little overview of the work that Cal Tjader recorded for the Skye Records label at the end of the 60s – some of his grooviest work ever, and all done with a unique blend of styles that Cal barely ever captured again! The rhythms are often inspired by bossa nova, but usually end up coming across a bit funkier – supported by strong electric bass work, and topped off not just by Cal's sweet solos on vibes, but often by electric piano, organ, or harpsichord! Gary McFarland produced all the tracks, and the tunes have a sweetly spacious quality that's like the best of his own work of the time – but even groovier! Titles include "Amazon", "Here", "Eye Of The Devil", "Fried Bananas", "My Little Red Book", "Walk On By", "The Tra La La Song", "Spooky", and "Get Out Of My Way". CD

New Mario AdnetAmazonia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from Mario Adnet – a set done with some great expanded orchestrations – and key help from guests who include Roberta Sa, Monica Salmaso, and Lenine! The tunes have this spacious, expansive feel that really lives up to the Amazon promise of the title – beautifully poetic, but with the orchestrations, full of fire too – in ways that really take us back to some of the best Brazilian scoring of the early 70s – especially that time when folks like Tom Jobim and Edu Lobo were really hitting their most sophisticated levels. Many numbers have vocals – from Roberta Sa, Vincente Nucci, Monica Salmaso, Lenine, and Mario himself – and titles include "Boto", "Rio Amazonas", "Canoa Canoa", "Trilhas Da Floresta", "Borzeguim", "Saci", and a killer vocal reading of Joao Donato's "A Ra".

New Nico FidencoEmanuelle E Gli Ultimi Cannibali (limited numbered edition) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A crazy exploitation genre fusion in the Emanuelle series – in which the globe trotting erotic adventurer winds up in situations with the world's last Amazonian cannibals – an anything goes entry in 70s sleazy cinema scored with some of the funkiest music we've ever heard from Italian film composer Nico Fidenco! The movie's settings range from mid-to-late 70s NYC to the Amazon, and the music is tailored to suit – with sultry disco funk theme with female English vocals with hand percussion hinting at the, uh, action to come – to airier, earthier numbers with acoustic instrumentation and flute. Wild, sensual stuff with surprisingly funky touches! Variations on that funky number "Make Love On The Wing" evolve throughout the 30 track set, with other titles including "The Dark Side Of The Soul", Cannibals In Pursuit", "Cannibals At Work", "Cannithrill", "Wild Nightmare", "Technocannibal", "The Meal Is Over" and more.

Antonio Adolfo & A BrazucaAntonio Adolfo E A Brazuca (1970) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $3.99
A lost treasure from Antiono Adolfo – keyboard player, arranger, and one of the greatest Brazilian talents of his generation! Adolfo's sound and style is contemporaneous with the best work of Marcos Valle, Edu Lobo, and others – and like them, he has an approach that mixes together jazz, MPB, baroque orchestrations, easy scoring, and a bit of funk – similar to the best work of the Blue Brazil generation on EMI/Odeon Records. The approach is one that's rarely been matched by any other artist – and it's a strong reason why Adolfo's records from this period are extremely sought after in the world of collectors. This beautiful album from 1970 has Adolfo working with the group A Brazuca – who bring some wonderful vocal harmonies to the set, mixing with strings, guitars, and some great electric piano work from Adolfo. Includes the breezy classic "Transamazonica", plus the cuts "Que Se Dane", "Atencao Atencao", "Claudia", "Panorama", "Tributo A Victor Manga", "Caminhada", "Grilopus No 1", and "Cotidiano". CD

New AzymuthLight As A Feather (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mestre Cupijo E Seu RitmoSiria (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99
An incredible compilation of material by Mestre Cupijo and the musicians of Cameta – the Amazonian town where the Siria style was born! The always-great Analog Africa label turns to Brazil for this one – a nice step after their rich range of African reissues – given the nature of the material. The people of the region include many of African origin, and the music is an exciting mix of tropical rhythms and percussion, seemingly African-inspired horns, guitar and vocals. Mestre Cupijo recorded a half dozen records from the mid 70s to early 80s, capturing the time-honored regional style in a modernized setting, and this compilation puts some of the best of that material together in a really exciting set. Revelatory stuff! Includes "Mingau De Acai", "Mambo Do Martelo", Morena Do Rio Mutuaca", "Farol Do Marajo", "Cade O Anel?", "Ventinho Do Norte", "Pra Danca Meu Siria", "Passarinho Siriri" and more.

Joyce with Joao DonatoAquarius (UK version) ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2009. Used ... $13.99
A beautiful collaboration between two of our favorite Brazilian artists ever – the lovely Joyce and bossa piano legend Joao Donato – both of whom have held onto all of their best early charms of their music! The session's definitely got a Joyce flavor upfront, as she's the main vocalist – but Donato's piano is a strong factor too – pulsating wonderfully with those warmly-crafted rhythms he's always done better than anyone else – that unique stop/start groove first forged in the 60s, heard best on his 70s work, and resurrected here to provide a fresh new setting for Joyce! Arrangements are by Donato and Joyce, and by Jesse Sadoc, who plays trumpet in the group – and the production's got a slightly rootsy quality, without any too-slick modes that might hurt the intimacy of a special session like this. Titles include "Amazonas No 2", "Feminina", "Aquarius", "Chama O Donato", "Tardes Caricas", "Caymmi Visita Tom", and "Amor Nas Estrelas". CD

New Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Darkly brilliant – and one of Joao Donato's most fantastic records! The set was recorded during Joao's time in America in the mid 60s – cut in New York with lofty backings by Claus Ogerman, in a pillowy soft mode that fits perfectly with Joao's light bossa piano lines, and which has all the hints of sadness and moodiness that often creep into his playing. The complicated approach of the album far surpasses some of Joao's work from Brazil at the same time – and the album's one of the best of its generation, a sublime mix of all elements that still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1965! Titles include "Amazonas", "Glass Beads", "Sugarcane Breeze", "Vento Do Canavail", "It Didn't End", and "O Barquinho". CD

New Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (Japanese pressing) ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the record years back, and it's been firmly brought back into the limelight as the classic it truly is! The set's an incredible reworking of Donato's sound – the gentle jazzy phrasing of the bossa years turned towards mellow groovers that feature a heck of a lot of electric piano. The album's got a few classic funky tracks, and some even more wonderful tracks that feature Joao working sparely on Fender Rhodes – accompanying himself on raspy vocals on most of the cuts! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Nana Das Aquas", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Mentiras", "Cala Boca Menino", "Cade Jodel", "Me Deixa", and "Ate Quem Sabe". CD

A wonderful album from Nara Leao – and one that features her singing duets with some of the greatest talents of the bossa era and beyond – an amazing lineup that includes Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo, Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, and others! The sound is wonderful – done with an intimate quality that brings a slightly modern variation of older bossa modes – but with some of the cool, dark inflections that Nara always has in her music. Instrumentation includes a fair bit of acoustic elements, and titles include "Repente", "Amazonas", "Cara Bonita", "Nono", "Joao E Maria", and "Sarara Miolo". Great stuff – and one of her best albums from the later years! CD

Fantastic! And every bit as wonderful as volume one. Put together by the guys at Mr. Bongo, this volume 2 features more rare Brazilian gems from the Brazilian EMI/Odeon catalog. The selection is stunning, and filled with material that will make your jaw drop! Way beyond the usual bossa stuff, this one includes amazing fusion, cool grooy sounding stuff, and haunting cuts that are beyond description.. Tracks on this one include "Freio Aerodinamico" by Os Tres Morais, "Transamazonica" by Antonio Adolfo, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Jungle" by Som Tres, "Procissao" by Milton Banana, and "Reflexos" by Quinteto Villa Lobos & Luiz Eca.

New Joao DonatoSerie Bis Bossa Nova ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1956/1973/1995. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
3 chapters in the career of Joao Donato – one of our favorite Brazilian artists! This nicely priced, 28 track, 2CD set features tunes from Joao's 1956 recordings for Odeon, his classic 1973 Quem E Quem LP, and his recent set recorded for the World Pacific label in 1995. The early tracks have a jazzy samba approach that's in the pre-bossa mode, but which hints at a lot of the work that Donato would famously record during the bossa nova era. The 1973 and 1995 sets work surprisingly well together –with a light breezy electric vibe that is still one of Joao's best styles of recording. If you've never heard Joao's sublime work – this set's a great chance to dip into his recordings, as you'll get a wonderful blend of funky tracks, bossa groovers, mellow jazz numbers, and more! Titles include "Ate Quem Sabe", "Terremoto", "Lugar Comum", "Bananeira", "Chorou Chorou", "Cafe Com Pao", "A Ra", "Doralinda", "Nasci Para Bailar", "Amazonas", "Carinhoso", "No Rancho Fundo", "Comigo e Assim", "Baio", "Peguei Um Ita No Norte", and "E Menina".

Lisa Ono's got a cool jazzy voice, and it sounds wonderful amidst the records arrangements by Joao Donato – some of the best that he's done in years, and encompassing a full range of his work, from the early bossa years, to the wonderful electric recordings of the 70s. If you dig Joao's classic Quem E Quem album, you'll really appreciate some of the work on here – but the record's equally appealing to any fan of jazzy Brazilian vocals. Titles include "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Ate Quem Sabe", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Quem Diz Que Sabe", "Brisa Do Mar", "Sambou Sambou", and "Terremoto". CD

New Cal TjaderMambo Sangria – Cal Tjader Plugs In/Solar Heat ... CD
Skye/Fabulous (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 totally great Cal Tjader electric albums – both recorded originally for the Skye label, and back to back on one CD! Cal Tjader Plugs In is a beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s – a soaring, spacious sound that comes from the interplay between Cal's ringing vibes and the Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano work of Al Zulaica – an excellent player we only know from a few of Tjader's albums. Armando Peraza provides some tight conga work on the set – and titles include "Spooky", "Tra La La Song", "Morning Mist", "Alonzo", "Nica's Dream", and "Get Out of My Way" – a great instrumental take on the Latin soul hit from Joe Torres! Solar Heat is even better – a record that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". CD

One of our favorite albums ever from Walter Wanderley – a set that's much more complicated than his earlier trio records for Verve – and which really expands the sound with a host of added elements! Wanderley's core organ bossa groove is amplified wonderfully here with the addition of guitar, vibes, horns, and other elements – all of which help to change the rhythms and move the groove way past just simple stock bossa. Walter plays a bit of electric piano too – hinting at work on later albums – and other players include Jerome Richardson on flute, Bobby Rosengarden on vibes, John Pizzarelli on guitar, and even a bit of vocals from Marge Dodson. There's a wonderful variety of tunes on the set – including Joao Donato's "Amazonas", Baden Powell's "Canto De Ossanha", and Bob Crewe's "Music To Watch Girls By" – plus other gems like "Sensuous", "Sambao", "Arrinho Atoa", "Kee Ka Roo", and "The Bobo".

AACE/Shout (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary early set from percussionist Francisco Mora Catlett – and a really sublime blend of spiritual jazz and Latin rhythms! Mora's percussion is definitely at the core – but the set also features wonderful contributions from Vincent Bowens on tenor and soprano sax, Jerome LeDuff on berimbau, Alberto Nacif on quinto, and Detroit jazz legend Kenny Cox on piano! There's a balance here that really matches the best Strata East energy of the 70s – an open, flowing approach that's completely sublime, and very righteous too – even more so than anything Mora's done since the 70s – making this record one of his greatest achievements ever. Tersa Mora sings a bit of vocals at times – and titles include "Afra Jum", "Five AM", "Rumba Morena", "Samba De Amor", and "Cultural Warrior". CD has an insane amount of bonus tracks – 8 more than the original album – with titles that include "Old Man Joe", "Afra Jum", "Amazona", "Por Que Paro", and "El Morro". CD
