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

Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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

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

Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... CD
Quest/Warner, 1989. Used ... $0.99
One of the last really all-star sets from Quincy Jones – and a record that reprises the format of some of his big records of the 70s – like Mellow Madness or Body Heat – in a way that has Quincy surrounding himself with top-shelf artists of all sorts, from jazz soloists, to hip hoppers, to R&B vocalists. Kool Moe Dee & Big Daddy Kane rap on a version of "Birdland" that also has solos from Miles, Diz, and James Moody; Take 6 sing on a mellow version of Ivan Lins' "Setembro (Brazilian Wedding Song)", Bobby McFerrin sings goofily on "Wee B Dooinit", Siedah Garrett and Al B Sure sing on "The Secret Garden", and a whole choir joins in on "Tomorrow".

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

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

VariousJohn Lennon – Letra & Musica ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2011. New Copy ... $10.99
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.

New Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Jayme MarquesJayme Marques En Directo ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful live set that has this great guitarist and singer running through a very tight set of Brazilian tracks with a smoking combo that features Fender Rhodes, tenor, flute, trumpet, and percussion. The set features two great readings of Baden Powell/Vinicius De Morais compositions – "Canto De Ossanha" and "Consolacao" – plus loads of other great Brazilian jazz tracks like Joao Donato's "O Sapo", Jorge Ben's "Pais Tropical", Meirelles' "Quintessencia", Luiz Gonzaga's "Asa Branca", and others by Jobim, Ivan Lins, and Chico Buarque. Very nice stuff, with a performance that is both lively and intimate, and which pays respect to all of the compositions, yet also twists them into something beautiful and new. Jayme is in perfect form, and although he's best known for his studio works from the time, this live LP is every bit as great as those ones! CD

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".
