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

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".

New Ricardo Silveira Organ TrioRicardo Silveira Organ Trio ... CD
Adventure Music, 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.99
A whole new side of the talents of guitarist Ricardo Silveira, and a great one too – a Hammond-oriented trio outing that's quite different than any of his previous projects to date! We've grown to love Silveira for his sensitive shadings in Brazilian or acoustic projects – but he's a very different player here in an electric setting – maybe even more inventive and expressive, with a range of sounds and care of phrasing that's completely sublime – as is the organ work from Vanessa Rodrigues, a player we've really got to learn more about, because her waves of soul and blocks of sound here are really tremendous – and a very fresh take on this decades-old instrument. The group's completed by Rafael Barata on drums – a nicely subtle player who really lets the guitar and Hammond handle most of the record's creativity – and the 2CD set presents one studio session from the group, and one live outing too – with titles that include an incredible version of "Canto De Ossanha", plus "Cochise", "A Medida Do Meu Coracao", "Batucada", "Amazon River", "Polo Pony", "Eu E A Brisa", and "One Eyed Monster".

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
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". CD

VariousHorror Hop ... CD
Buffalo Bop (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $14.99
A host of horror-heavy tunes – and a killer collection of fright-filled novelty numbers with a decidedly rocking feel! This excellent set goes way past familiar Halloween tracks, to come up with a massive blend of rare singles from the late 50s and early 60s – most with really cool instrumentation and production – almost an audio equivalent to the kind of horror films that were big at the time! Titles include "Shudders & Screams" by Ben Colder, "The Mummy's Bracelet" by Lee Ross, "The Zoo" by Mickey Lee Lane, "Foo Man Choo" by The Revels, "Night Mare" by Billy Sills, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Black Widow Spider Woman" by Jack Hammer, "Vampira" by Bobby Bare, "Werewolf" by The Frantics, "Creature From Outer Space" by Sonny Day, "Amazon" by Phil Carter, "Graveyard Rock" by Tarantula Goul, and "Igor's Party" by Tony's Monstrosities.

New Earl KlughDream Come True ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warm guitar magic from Earl Klugh – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has an address stifker on rhe back.)

New Herbie MannFlautista! ... CD
Verve/Jazz Heritage, 1959. Used ... Temporarily 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 Patato 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. Plus, this reissue also adds 2 unreleased bonus cuts – "Delilah" and "Basin Street Este". CD

New Gary CrissRio De Janeiro (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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)".

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

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 Chicha LibreSonido Amazonico ... CD
Barbes, 2008. Used ... $7.99
A new take on the older chica groove – a slightly romping rhythm that's almost a South American take on Tex Mex modes! The sound here has a nicely old-style feel – despite contemporary origins of the recording – and instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, including Electravox, farfisa, and moog – used in rhythmic lines that are supported by work on guitar and lots of percussion. A few tracks have vocals, and others are instrumental – and all numbers have a haunting sort of feel. Titles include "Yo No Fui", "Popcorn Andino", "El Borrachito", "Sonido Amazonico", "Mi Plato De Barro", and "Tres Pasajeros". CD

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.

New Nara LeaoOs Meus Amigos Sao Um Barato ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Maria MarquezTonada ... CD
Adventure Music, 2013. Used ... $5.99
A really beautiful set of South American vocal work – a set that draws equal parts inspiration from the styles of Venezuela and Brazil – with a touch of Chilean influence as well – all wrapped up in a style that's warm and slightly jazzy, but with a real edge as well! Maria Marquez has a real undercurrent of darkness in her vocals – not really tristesse, but sort of a deeper layer of feeling that really comes through over the course of the record, but in a very subtle way. The instrumentation really helps work with this approach – gentle bits of accordion, slide guitar, cuatro, and a range of different keyboards – all used to inflect the tunes in these really unusual ways. Titles include "Cancion De Cuna", "Tonada", "El Catire", "Entre Copa Y Copa", "Volver A Los 17", and a nice take on Joao Donato's "Amazonas". CD

New Roxy MusicStranded ... LP
Atco, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Roxy Music's third album and the first one sans Brian Eno, making the record slightly less experimental, but still a wild avant pop masterpiece that finds the group at near peak perfection! The otherworldly elements aren't forgone in Eno's absence, with some spacey synthesizer washes and treated violin parts lending some otherwordliness – but the more focused songwriting and overall tunefulness make this one another classic! Titles include "Street Life", "Just Like You", "Amazona", "Psalm", "Serenade", "A Song For Europe", "Mother Of Pearl" and "Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

Skye, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
One of Cal Tjader's best albums ever – and a sweetly electric side 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 – and gives the whole thing a really groovy sound! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". LP, Vinyl record album

Walter WanderleyKee-Ka-Roo ... LP
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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".

New Antonio Adolfo & A BrazucaAntonio Adolfo E A Brazuca (1970) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA (UK), 1965. New Copy ... 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

Skye/Boa, Late 60s. Used ... 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!
