Ivan LinsA Noite ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A really wonderful album from Ivan Lins – filled with life, soul, and a free sense of spirit that reminds us of some of Milton Nascimento's best work from the same period! Ivan's vocals are set amidst some heavenly arrangements by Gilson Peranzzetta – done with just the right amount of jazz in the mix, and a nice blend of instrumentation that often includes electric piano and a bit of strings. Lins is at the height of his powers here, both vocally and in terms of his songwriting – and the album ranks as one of his best from the time. Titles include "A Voz Do Povo", "Formigueiro", "Antes Que Seja Tarde", and "Noites Sertanejas". CD

Ivan LinsNos Dias De Hoje ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record features a great set of tracks written in collaboration with Vitor Martins, and with backing by Grupo Modo Livre, arranged by Gilson Peranzzetta. If you've ever wondered why people talk about Lins' genius as a songwriter – check out this album, and you'll see what they mean! Titles include "Cantoria", "Quaresma", "Temporal", "Aos Nossos Filhos", and "A Visita". CD

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

New Ivan Lins & SWR Big BandCornucopia ... CD
Sunnyside, 2013. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A sublime setting for the vocals of the great Ivan Lins – wrapped up here in some really inventive arrangements from the SWR Big Band, who bring an energy to the album we haven't heard from Lins in years! Ivan's vocals take on this soaring, fluid quality that reminds us why we first fell in love with his music so many years ago – a transcendent quality that's really let loose the more the band seems to energize their rhythms and horn charts – almost scatting at times, given the jazzy vibe of the whole record! Arranger Ralf Schmid really makes magic on the record – and the album also features work from Paula Morelenbaum on guest vocals, and a bit of vocals from a South African choir. Tracks include "Samba De Vision", "Missing Miles", "Guantanamineira", "Roda Baiana", "Trem Bom", and "Awa Yio". CD

New Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of record to get you started with his music, as it's one of the best that he ever recorded! The set's got all the best elements of Lins at his 70s stretch of greatness – wonderful songwriting, honest presentation of the lyrics, and this sublime mix of jazz and more lofty backings – at a level that places him in the space with Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges! Like both of those artists, the music here is earnest, but never overdone – balanced with a sense that no American artist could ever hope to touch – with this universal appeal that goes way beyond the boundaries of language. Gilson Peranzzetta handled the backings, and plays keyboards on the set – and titles include "Quadras de Roda", "Dinorah, Dinorah", "Choro Das Aquas", and the great "Aparecida". CD

New Ivan Lins & Inventa RioInventa Rio Encontra Ivan Lins ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums we've heard from Ivan Lins in years – a collaboration with Italian jazz group Inventa Rio, who serve up some really wonderful versions of his tunes! Ivan sings a bit on the record, and plays keyboards – both other vocals are from a member of the quartet – plus some key guest singers who include Vanessa Da Mata, Jessica Brando, Tosca, Chico Buarque, and Chiara Civello. The album gets a few jazz contributions, too – from the members of the Gnu Quartet, and from the great trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso. Lyrics are all in Italian, which seems to open up a warmer side of Lins' sound – and titles include "O Tempo Me Guardou Voce", "Illuminati", "Cartomante", "Maybe One Day Maybe In Vain", "Nascere Di Nuovo", and "Con Me".

Jayme MarquesSo Much Feeling ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1977. Used ... $22.99
Beautiful beautiful stuff! This is the classic mid 70's LP by Spanish singer and guitarist Jayme Marques that features a stellar set of Brazilian grooves that includes his legendary 12 minute reworking of Milton Nascimento's "Veracruz". If you know the track, you know the amazing sort of vibe that Jayme gets with the track. The orchestrations are beautiful, and the track is graced by the Fender Rhodes playing of Rafael Ferro and the percussion and singing of Pedru Rui Blas. The rest of the album's great, too, and includes tracks like Ivan Lins' "Las Tres De La Manana", Caetano Veloso's "Irene", and Jayme's own tracks "So Much Feeling (Homenaje A Tete Montoliu)" and "Quem Ta Com Samba". A legendary album, and a very tough one to find. CD

Os CariocasReconquistar ... CD
WEA, 1991. Used ... $6.99
A real return to brilliance for this legendary Brazilian vocal group – a sweet set of harmony tracks that takes the best bits from earlier years, and gives them a smoother more modern spin. The production is great, and still really gets at the jazzy phrasing of the quartet – and the group's joined on the set by famous guests like Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Ivan Lins, and Joao Bosco. Titles include "Terra Dourada", "Bebel", "Vagamente", "Tema Do Bill", "Travessia", "Sampa", and "Voo". CD

New Judy RobertsNights In Brazil ... LP
Inner City, 1981. Very Good ... $2.99
A sweet set of vocal tracks from Judy Roberts – a mix of original tunes and a few covers, all done with a warm fusiony style, and plenty of Brazilian touches! Judy's at the height of her powers here – partly jazzy, partly in a songstress mode that's inspired by the advances that female singers made during the 70s – stretching out in the new freedoms, but never forgetting the lyric, or a need to swing. Includes a great remake of Ivan Lins' "Common Ground", plus the tracks "Two & A Half", "Country Samba", "Save That Time", "Nights In Brazil", "I Can't Help It", and "Starlight Haunted Ballroom".

Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of Helio Delmiro, Ivan Lins, Toninho Horta, Danilo Caymmi, and Joao Bosco – each of whom play a bit of guitar on the record, the last of whom also sings a bit of guest vocals too! Luiz Eca handled the arrangements, all with that subtle sense of sophistication that we've always loved in the group – even more mature here than in the 60s, and with a sound that's totally great. Titles include "3 Horas Da Manha", "Visgo De Jaca", "Beira Mar", "Chorinho No 1", "Jogo Da Vida", "Sanguessuga", and "Beijo Partido". CD

Som Livre (Brazil), 1989. Used ... $19.99
The production's a bit cheesy – sounding a lot like you'd expect, given the date of the soundtrack – but the set features some well-written songs in a modern MPB mode. Titles include "Pontos Cardeis" by Ivan Lins, "Besame" by Jane Duboc, "Isto Aqui O Que E?" by Caetano Veloso, "Sem Destino" by Leo Gandleman, "Um Mundo So Pra Nos" by Gaz, "Terra Dourada" by Joao Bosco, and "Brasil" by Gal Costa.

New Eliane EliasBossa Nova Stories ... CD
Blue Note, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful bossa from Eliane Elias – and a great reminder of how much we love her work in this style! The set's recorded with a warmly lyrical feel – core backing by a small combo with Oscar Castro Neves on guitar, amidst fuller strings arranged by Rob Mathes – never too lush, and always with the gentle, spacious sound that you might find in some mid 60s bossa nova album on Elenco! Eliane's vocals really fit the setting nicely – with only a few contemporary touches to give her away – and the album also features guests appearances from Toots Thielemans on harmonica and Ivan Lins on vocals. Titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "The More I See You", "Desafinado", "Estate", "Day In Day Out", "I'm Not Alone", "Chega De Saudade", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "A Ra", and "Superwoman".

New VariousJohn Lennon – Letra & Musica ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of John Lennon, but handled by a host of different Brazilian artists – on this cool set of tracks pulled together from albums of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s – plus a few tracks from more recent years too! The set shows a really lasting influence of this Beatle's music on Brazil – from early takes that echo a more direct relationship to Lennon's recordings, to later MPB reworkings that have things really running deep, and coming out in rich new ways! Titles include "Come Together" by Wilson Das Neves, "Because" by MPB4 & Quarteto Em Cy, "Norwegian Wood" by Milton Nascimento, "Love" by Ivan Lins, "How Do You Sleep" by Kadu Mota, "Meu Bem" by Ronnie Von, "Demais" by Veronica Sabino, "My Life" by Leila Pinheiro, "Child Of Nature" by Daca, and "In My Life" by Rita Lee.

Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $9.99
An unusual slice of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers – proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks feature Shavers in a sextet with Hank D'Amico, Bennie Morton, Ken Kersey, Aaron Bell and Panama Francis, and some narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins provides some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo. The set list includes "Dark Eyes", "Dawn On The Desert", "Story Of The Jazz Trumpet", and "Moten Swing" – all done in pretty cool, swinging versions. Side 2 of the LP features Shavers leading another sextet in front of the John Kirby Orchestra with vocalist Maxine Sullivan alongside too, and all of which include Buster Bailey on clarinet, Russell Procope on alto, and Billy Kyle on piano – on tunes that include "Windy", "Rose Room", "If I Had A Ribbon Row", "Flow Gently Sweet Rhythm", and "Molly Malone".

New Weldon IrvineSpirit Man ... CD
RCA/Get On Down, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Massively funky work from the mighty Weldon Irvine – sublimely cosmic and filled with soul throughout! The vibe here is a bit more focused than on some of Weldon's earlier albums – a moody blend of electric keys, heavy percussion, and some slight bits of jazzy solo work by trumpeters Charles Sullivan and Everett Blood Hollins, and saxophonist Sonny Fortune – both players who really help the album find some soulful structure! The album's all-instrumental, and has Weldon really taking off on the keyboards – not just using them for main solos, but also dropping in cool noisy bits and analogue effects that really sound great – almost out-Herbieing Herbie Hcock for the record, and turning in some of his biggest classics on wax! Titles include the massive sample cut "We Gettin' Down", plus "Jungle Juice", "Blast Off", "Softly", "Power & The Glory", "Yasmin", and "Pogo Stick". CD
