CelesteCinco E Triste Da Manha ... CD
Tapecar/Amazon (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy .... $2.99
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

Mario AdnetAmazonia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2013. New Copy .... $12.99 15.99
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".

Nico FidencoEmanuelle E Gli Ultimi Cannibali (limited numbered edition) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy .... $16.99
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.

Gary CrissRio De Janeiro ... CD
1978. New Copy .... Around May 21, 2014
Disco tunes with a Brazilian spirit – recorded in Philly by white boy Gary, but with the sunny finish of Copacabana! The tunes were all arranged by John Davis – and Gary's got a nice Free Soul style of singing that makes the songs bounce bouyantly along. Titles include "The Lady Is Latin", "Amazon Queen", "Rio De Janeiro", "The Girl From Ipanema", and "My Rio Lady". CD

New Manhattan FocusManhattan Focus ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent mix of American and Japanese players – all brought into sharp Manhattan focus for this session! The date was recorded in New York, and features arrangements from Al Foster, Tom Harrell, Bob Berg, and Kunhiko Sugano – on cuts that are more warmly acoustic than the electricity you might expect, given the usual fusion groove of most American/Japanese collaborations from the time! There's a lyrical warmth here that's really wonderful – and slight echoes of Brazilian jazz amidst the soulful undercurrents from the US players too. The lineup features Berg on tenor, Harrell on flugelhorn, Foster on drums, Sugano on keyboards, Yoshiaki Masuo on guitar, Yoshio Suzuki on bass, and Sammi Figueroa and Eddie Colon on percussion. Tracks include a great reading of Foster's "Mixed Roots" – plus "Amazon", "O Que Sera", "Hocus Pocus", "Sao Pau Lo", and "To My Lady". CD

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 Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 1997 to 2000 ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2000. Used 2CD .... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from one of the most important production teams of recent times! Jazzanova have sharply defined the modern European taste for Brazilian and Latin-inflected grooves on the dancefloor – beginning in the mid 90s with work for the (then) new Compost Records imprint, and working up to present days with countless remix efforts for other artists. Sadly, Jazzanova have yet to cut an album of their own work – and this double-length set is probably the best full way to experience their rich talents. It features 20 tracks in all, many with a strong Brazilian or bossa flavor, and most with a tight dancefloor approach to jazz. Titles include "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, "Soul Power" by Marcshmellows, "Carajillo" by Truby Trio, "Get Into My Groove" by Incognito, "Amazon Adventure" by Azymuth, "Words Of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group, "Planet Of Breaks" by Visit Venus, "Burnin" by Tate's Place, "Toda Tersafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "Circe" by Ursula Rucker, "Fifths" by Ski, and "Complete Life" by Liquid Lounge – all remixed by Jazzanova!

New El Cacique De Menkoremon Y Su Cuarteto AtalainoLa Cumbia Selvatica ... CD
Vital Record, 2011. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Modern jungle cumbia from the Peruvian Amazon – feverish, melodic music from Menkoremon Y Su Cuarteto Atalaino – and the first of what we hope will be many releases from The Vital Record label! The group is influenced by classic 70s Peruvian and Colombian dance music, but it's also profoundly and proudly contemporary – you can see on the cover photo that they play with modern instrumentation. That said, it's timeless stuff – joyful, danceable and real. Tracks include "El Huarmi Icaro (The Woman Song)", "El Lamento Del Shiwango (The Shiwango's Lament)", "Atalaya Hermosa (Beautiful Atalaya)", "Bello Sueno (Beautiful Dream)", "El Monito Machin (The White Monkey)", "El Ritmo Del Toayo (The Toayo's Rhythm)", "and more. 10 in all.

New Herbie MannFlautista! ... LP
Verve, 1959. Used .... Out Of Stock
Very cool stuff – and one of Herbie Mann's greatest albums! The record is a tight set of Latin jazz tracks, with a feel that's a lot more rootsy than you'd expect. Herbie's flute is tight and choppy, but there's lots of other nice moments by Johnny Rae on vibes, and Patao Valdez and Jose Mangual on percussion. Includes the long groovy "Cuban Potato Chip", plus "Caravan", "Amazon River", and "Come On, Mule" – all of which are also nice and long. LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove and trumpeter logo. Cover has split seams held together by pieces of masking tape and some ringwear, with a bit of pencil, a couple of small stains, and an ink stamp on the back.)

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

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

AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy .... $16.99
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". CD also features four bonus tracks – "Jazz Carnival (full original mix)", "Avenida Das Manguerias (SS translation by Theo Parrish)", "Jazz Carnival (Yambee rework by Ashley Beedle & Yam Who)", and "Codsall Juniors" by Mark E.

Francisco Mora CatlettMora! (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
AACE/Shout (Japan), 1986. New Copy .... $24.99
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

George ShearingShearing Bossa Nova ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $15.99
A heavenly album, and easily one of our favorite George Shearing records of the 60s – thanks to some sweet bossa arrangements by a young Clare Fischer! Fischer's got a better ear for this groove than just about anyone else – and he beautifully mixes light woodwinds with bossa rhythms for the date – providing a perfect backdrop for that well-punctuated Shearing sound on the keys of the piano! The set's got a lightly soaring swing that's mighty nice – and thanks to deft playing by George, still retains a lot more jazz elements than you'd find on other records of this nature. Titles include "One Note Samba", "Blue Prelude", "Desafinado", "Pensativa", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Algo Novo", "Black Satin", "Manha De Carnival", and "Amazona's Legend". CD

Cal TjaderMambo Sangria – Cal Tjader Plugs In/Solar Heat ... CD
Skye/Fabulous (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... $5.99
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

VariousBig Hits From The Hill – Flamin' Hotz Funk, You Down? ... CD
Flamin Hotz, 2008. Used 2CD .... $4.99
A heady brew of contemporary Brazilian funk – the booty-shaking, favela-founded sort that's lately been cooking up dancefloors around the globe! The cuts here are all a bit more hard-edged than mainstream examples of the genre – mixed up and mashed up heavily in a blazing blend of beats, basslines, and hip hop lyrics in Portuguese! And the package is a lot better done than most others of this nature – all top-shelf production with full notes in a lavish color booklet. 23 tracks in all – including "Tipo Bang Bang" by MC Sargento, "Electro Base" by Phabyo DJ, "Aperte Um Quebe" by DJ Edger, "Vem Com A Mao No Red Bull" by Cabide DJ, "Jungle Bass" by Phabyo DJ, "Troca-aplica" by MC Loura E Sany Pitbull, "Amazonia" by Sany Pitbull, "Um Real" by MC Gringo E MC Binho, "Bonde Da F" by Cabide DJ, and "Seduzir Voce" by MC Xana & Rio Bass Commando.

Nara LeaoOs Meus Amigos Sao Um Barato ... CD
Late 70s. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
A wonderful album from Nara – and one that features her singing duets with some fo the greatest talents of the bossa era! The record was recorded with an intimate style that works very well – one that has a bit of a modern sound, but which still also features plenty of strong acoustic instrumentation, and a lot more soul than later sessions. Nara sings with Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Edu Lobo, Tom Jobim, Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, and others – and titles include "Repente", "Amazonas", "Cara Bonita", "Nono", "Joao E Maria", and "Sarara Miolo". Great stuff – and one of her best ever albums! CD

New Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (Japanese pressing) ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1973. Used .... Just Sold Out!
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
