JoyceAgua E Luz ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio".

New JoyceEncontro Marcado ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Damn – what a great album! This is Joyce's second solo album – and it's a landmark in Brazilian music, stretching way past the bossa styles of her first release, into a groove that's free, jazzy, and open-ended, a real shift towards the genius of her work in the 70s and 80s. Arrangements are by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – and they have a complicated jazzy approach that really lets Joyce open up as a singer, moving into the sort of territory that you'd expect from artists like Marcos Valle or Elis Regina. The album's a real gem, and it's so rare that it hardly got any global circulation at the time – despite Joyce's later fame at a worldwide level. Titles include "Adam Adam", "Encontro Marcado", "Bom Dia", "Longe Do Tempo", "Asa Branca", "Como Vai, Vai Bem", "Caminho Pro Sol", and "Preparando Um Luminoso". CD

New JoyceJoyce (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and played on a number of tracks by Dori Caymmi and his group. The style shows many elements of Joyce's later unique style, filtered through a more standard late bossa sound – light and breezy, but with a bit of a dark edge that's in a classic Jobim mode. Includes the track "Superego", which feels a lot like Joyce from the 70s – plus the lovely "Litoral", and the tracks "Me Disseram", "Nao Muda, Nao", "Cantiga De Procura", "Choro Chorado", "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho", and "Improvisado".

JoyceMusic Inside ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few Joyce albums ever issued in the US – a breezy outing from the end of the 80s, recorded with a bit more jazz than usual, and a number of English-language lyrics that were clearly intended to help break her into a wider market! Joyce is still very much in a comfortable setting on the record – dominating with her work on acoustic guitar and vocals – but she's also getting a bit more instrumental help than usual from a range of guests that include Kenny Werner, Ray Drummond, Ralp Moore, and Marvin Smitty Smith. The English alone is worth the price of the record – as we're usually relying on just our love of her voice to appreciate Joyce's usual Portuguese lyrics – and titles include "Bird Of Brazil", "Bird Of Japan", "Stonewashed", "Belafonte", "Essential", "Mysteries", and a nice cover of The Beatles' "Help".

New JoyceFeminina ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beauty, pure beauty – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". If you buy just one Joyce album in your life, this might well be it! CD

New JoycePassarinho Urbano ... LP
Continental (Brazil), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous little album from Joyce – a rare session originally only issued in Italy, recorded in a folksy style that's a bit different than her other work! Tracks are all pretty short – many under 2 minutes long – and feature spare guitar, percussion, and lovely vocals from Joyce – really stretching out here in the laidback and open-ended format. The record is a magical treasure, and one of the best she ever recorded – a unique mix of jazzy and folksy stylings, all held together with some of the loveliest vocals ever recorded by a Brazilian singer! Titles include "Pelo Telefone", "Pesadelo", "De Frente Pro Crime", "Joia", "Chora Doutor", "Fado Tropical", and "A Historia Do Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare early work from Joyce – a much-needed collection that brings together all the hard-to-find early bits recorded by this fantastic Brazilian singer – songs from compilations, live albums, singles, soundtracks, and other obscure sources! The 20 track set is a real treasure trove if you love Joyce (and we certainly do!) – a way to hear some of these overlooked gems from the initial years of her career – cuts that often show a slight bossa influence, but which also bring in some more complicated modes too – a few trippy touches here, some jazzy inflections there – all wrapped up with the sound that's set Joyce apart from her contemporaries for years. The package has notes that list the source for each track – and titles include "Kyrie", "Andrea", "Copacabana Velha De Guerra", "Dia De Vitoria", "Olhos Feiticeiros", "A Vez E A Voz Da Paz", "Sei La", "Peba & Pobo", and "Pessoas".

Far Out (UK), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from the lovely Joyce – an album that sparkles wonderfully throughout – in just the way we love from her older classics! The passage of years hasn't dimmed her beauty at all – and both Joyce's vocals and acoustic guitar work are sublime – lively, but in a really subtle way – with plenty of jazz inflections, and a mix of bossa roots that goes way beyond just about any other artist who tries to work in territory like this! Even after decades of recording, Joyce has this really unique, really sublime approach to her music that makes her records unlike anyone else's – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Puro Ouro", "Estado De Graca", "Aquelas Cancoes Em Mim", "Claude Et Maurice", "Quero Ouvir Joao", and "Tudo".

Far Out (UK), 2011. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet work from Joyce – a very intimate album that really reminds us of her classics from years back! Most of the set just features Joyce's vocals and guitar – but as you'll know if you love her as much as we do, that alone is enough to make the record wonderful – a slyly seductive blend that few other artists could carry off this well! The style is rooted in bossa, but inflected with jazz – and yet carried off with an individual style that nobody else can touch. Titles include "Adeus America", "Puro Ouro", "Vela No Breu", "Manha No Posto 6", "Viva Meu Samba", "Rio Meu", and "Mascarada". CD

New Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley & The Bossa Rio Sextet With Sergio Mendes ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $7.99
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz versions of classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim – all done by a group arranged and directed by guitarist Mario Adnet, and featuring guest work from Joyce, Helio Delmiro, Romero Lumbambo, and others! The sound here is really fresh – not merely just a reworking of Jobim's original ideals, but a recasting of them in lightly arranged modes that often take on the shapes, colors, and textures of work by Moacir Santos – styles that are warm, but often have some sharper edges underneath, thanks to great interplay between the instruments. Bits of horns, guitar, piano, and percussion all come together with a tremendous sense of grace – and titles include "Tema Jazz", "Sue Ann", "Domingo Sincopado", "So Danco Samba", "Paulo Voo Livre", "Polo Pony", and "Bate Boca".

Sublime vocals from Clarice Assad – a singer who's got some ties to older Brazilian traditions, but who also really makes things all her own – with a dynamic sense of phrasing that's perfectly backed up by some equally great instrumentation! Clarice handled all the arrangments – which blend flute, strings, vocals, and lots of deft percussion – but always in this lean way that moves along effortlessly with her beautiful vocals. The approach has all the fresh appeal of Joyce at her best – although Clarice is quite different overall, and often open to a much wider range of influences. Titles include "De Perna Pro Ar", "Passaros", "Fantasia", "Tempestade", "Why", "Lachrimae", "Dedezinha De Maio", and "Revolta Das Flores". CD

A gentler, more laidback album that some of Maria Bethania's more dramatic efforts from the early 70s – but still a pretty great little record, served up with a sense of poise and power that few of her contemporaries could match! Backings are arranged by Perinho Albuquerque, in a way that's often relatively spare, but still full at the bottom – letting the vocals take most of the top of the sound, in a way that makes for a nicely personal quality to the record. Tracks include numbers written by Joyce, Caetano Veloso, and Luiz Gonzaga Jr – with titles that include "Queda D'Agua", "Mel", "Gota De Sangue", "Da Cor Brazileira", and "Ela E Eu". CD

Doug CarnAdams Apple ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty". CD

Really wonderful work from singer Guida De Palma – an album with jazzy bossa backings from Jazzinho, and a groove that's even more sublime than any of their previous work! The album easily ranks right up there with our favorite 70s classics by Brazilian legends like Joyce or Tania Maria – with the flowing, breezy quality of the former, and the wickedly jazzy vocal modes of the latter! Guida really steps out in a brilliant way on the set – with a depth of expression, strength of songwriting, and instant classic status we never would have expected. Leon Ware guests on the album's great leadoff track – "A Seed In You" – and other titles include "Autumn Monsoon", "Abracao Da Bossa", "Papao", "Ready To Feel Again", and "Whispers In The Darkness".

Egberto GismontiCoracoes Futuristas ... CD
EMI/Bomba (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $29.99
An amazing tribute not just to the rich imagination of the young Egberto Gismonti – but also to the vivid sound of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album leaps past any easy definitions – as bits of jazz, MPB, serious scoring, folkloric styles, and other elements come into play – often in the space of a single song – and Gismonti's own keyboards and guitar are mixed with really collaborative efforts from Joyce, Danilo Caymmi, Marcio Montarroyos, and other leading lights of the Brazilian underground at the time! The tunes are quite visionary – in a way that's as sublime as Gismonti's legendary 1973 album – and production is other-worldly, at a level that few Anglo albums could hope to match at the time. Titles include the classic "Cafe" – plus Baiao Do Acordar", "Danca Das Cabecas", "Carmo", "Polichinelo", "Trem Noturno", and "Ano Zero". CD

The sound here is amazing – kind of a jazzy extension of territory explored by Milton Nascimento a few years before – served up with a warmly dancing groove with the same fluid feel as Joyce at her best! Horta's getting some wonderful help here to realize his musical vision – a lineup that includes Lo Borges on vocals, plus instrumentation from Wagner Tiso, Raul De Souza, Luis Alves, and Roberto Ribeiro – as well as a guest appearance by Pat Metheny! Titles include the amazing track "Aqui Oh!", plus "Saguin", "Caso Antigo", "Prato Feito", "Vento", "Minha Casa", and "Era So Comeco Nosso Fim". CD

Jazztronik's always had an ear for Brazilian sounds and styles – which are then integrated into their own music – but this time around, the approach is a lot more organic, and almost more respectful of the older modes of the 60s and 70s – particularly the best jazzy styles of the latter decade! Acoustic instrumentation rings out strongly on most numbers – especially percussion and guitar – and the album carries echoes of older work by artists like Joyce, Elis Regina, and Edu Lobo – and features singers who include Robert Gallagher, Nina Miranda, and Adriana Vasques! Titles include "Samba De Flora", "Aquelas Coisas Todos", "Aguas De Marco", "Jazz Carnival", "Menina Ilza", and "Upa Neguinho". CD

New Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train".

LanuThis Is My Home ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. Used ... $3.99
A long-awaited full length set from Lanu – aka Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos – and a record that's one of the best blends of soul, funk, and cosmic vibes we've heard in many many years! Lanu's been bubbling under for quite awhile – first issuing singles from his native New Zealand, then more recently from the UK – but with a full album of work under his belt, the depths of his talents are finally revealed – an amazing tapestry of soul and sound that carries echoes of older work by Roy Ayers, Fela Kuti, 4 Hero, and Herbie Hancock! But the grooves here are way better than even those easy references might make you think – none of this "fake fusion" that sometimes shows up a bit too much these days – and really the real deal from start to finish – with incredible keys, complicated rhythms, and a soaring, joyous approach to the music that's totally great. Guests include Kero One, Quantic, Aloe Blacc, Abby Joyce, No Comply, and Simon Grey – and titles include "Dis-Information", "Mother Earth", "Runaway", "Aow Leuk", "Don't Sleep (parts 1 & 2)", "Let You Grow", "Shine", and "Rise". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Beachcomber" and "Beijo Do Sol" – both gems from older singles! CD

Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound – but always in a way that's never commercial or slick at all – and which instead realizes this complicated jazzy vibe that comes through even better with this instrumentation than it did during the bossa nova years! Lobo's vocals have a quality that's mature, yet really personal too – and the album's a real testament to his great songwriting skills over the years – even on the few instrumental tracks. Joyce guests on one track, as does Dorival Caymmi – and the set also features some backing vocals from Boca Livre. Titles include "Tempo Presente", "Rei Morto, Rei Posto", "Quase Sempre", "Balada De Outono", and "Dono Do Lugar". CD

Ellen McIlwaine's got to be one of the most unique talents of the past 50 years – a skilled guitarist, and great singer – working in a blend of folk, jazz, and soul that lies somewhere between the best tunes by Joyce and Joni Mitchell! This album's one of 2 classics she cut for Polydor back in her early years – a mixture of live and studio tunes that are filled with scatting vocals, skittish rhythms, and some really tight (and almost funky) work on acoustic guitar! Tracks include a killer version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Can't Find My Way Home", "Wings Of A Horse", "Toe Hold", "Losing You", "Weird of Hermiston", and "Up From the Skies". CD

Moody's working here alongside some sweet work on electric piano by either Jodie Christian or Tennyson Stephens – and with some sly and soulful arrangements by Chicago soul maestro Richard Evans, who also plays bass on the record and gives it a style that's almost an extension of the later Cadet kind of groove. The album features an excellent funky instrumental version of " First Thing I Do In the Morning", originally a funky vocal 45 by Chicago singer Joyce Williams – and other cuts include "Trilby", "Don't Let Me Be Lonely", "World Is A Ghetto", "Good Sense Humor Man", and "Country City Country".

EMI (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A mid 70s masterpiece from Milton Nascimento – a record that still has the soaringly ambitious touches of his other work from the time, but which also comes across with a slightly personal feel too! Nascimento's voice is near-perfect – even more spacious and heavenly than before – and the backings have a positive, triumphant quality that's extremely upbeat and bright, yet without sounding commercial at all. There's still plenty of jazzy undercurrents in the music – which was co-written with Fernando Brant, Toninho Horta, and Ronaldo Bastos – and players on the record include Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on guitar, and Nivaldo Ornelas on flute. There's an additional chorus on some tracks – with vocals by Joyce, Horta, and others – and although the overall sound is impossible to describe adequately, it's a heavenly mix of complicated arrangements, unusual instrumentation, and Milton's fantastic voice. Titles include "Minas", "Idolatrada", "Paula e Bebeto", "Leila", "Ponta De Areia", "Gran Circo", and "Simples". This Japanese CD edition includes 2 bonus tracks: a nice cover of "Norwegian Wood" and "Caso Voce Quiera Saber". CD

A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD

The group's one of the best he ever worked with on Muse – with Billy Harper on tenor, plus Rene McLean, Steve Turre, Joe Bonner, and Cecil McBee – and the approach reminds us of some of the work on Strata East from the same time. The highlight of the record is the cut "Sunbath", which was done in a more famous jazz dance version by singer Joyce Hurley – but Shaw's version has a very similar groove. Harper makes many of the other tracks shine brilliantly, and titles include "Love Dance", "Obsequious", and Harper's own beautiful composition "Soulfully I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

The style is very subtle – like some mellower moments from Joyce, but as equally nice as work of that nature – and titles include "Pedra Da Lua", "Dona Lu", "Coralice", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Dindi", "Beijo Partido", and "Eu Vim Da Bahia".

Sweetly jazzy Brazilian grooves from the team of Teca & Ricardo – a lovely album recorded in France in the mid 70s, and unheard for years! The feel here is not that dissimilar from some of the recent work by Tom & Joyce, or classic work by the team of Jaime & Nair – Teca's lovely vocals upfront in the mix, often joined in harmony by Ricardo, with backings that are spare and which include lots of acoustic guitar. Post-bossa jazzy vocals with a slight electric twist – warm and intimate, but with lots of groove-oriented touches! Titles include "Saranda", "Estrela Da Cancao", "Cafune", "Trovaoda", "Pra Que Tanta Explicao", and "Le Son Hante". LP, Vinyl record album

THP OrchestraTender Is The Night/Good To Me (with bonus tracks) – Disco Recharge ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $10.99
A heady set of work from THP Orchestra – two full albums, and bonus tracks too! First up is THP #2/Tender Is The Night – the second album from THP, and the set that really broke them out of the box – thanks to some tuneful tracks that definitely played big in the clubs – and which featured some sweet soulful vocals from the Duncan Sisters! The pair really help give the songs some focus – and although the main focus here is still on the core rhythms, keyboard lines, and guitar riffs – the Duncans bring in a soulfulness that really helps the record climb above the usual disco noise. Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Weekend Two Step", "Tender Is The Night", "Half As Nice", and "Music Is All You Need". Good To Me features soaring disco grooves from THP – working here without the "orchestra" in the name that graced their first two records – but actually hitting an even fuller sound than before! This time around, Pete Pedersen handles all arrangements and orchestrations – and the grooves are a great blend of jazzy instrumentation, funky rhythms, and some larger horns that really soar over the top and send things home – at a level that may well beat the previous two records! Lead vocals are by Joyce Cobb – who often steps aside to let the instrumentation do its thing, but then comes right back with a catchy chorus to really add some hooks to the tunes. Titles include "Dancin Forever", "Good To Me", "Who Do You Love", "Two Hearts One Love", and "Dancin Is Alright". Also features lots of bonus tracks from singles – including "Two Hearts One Love (7" mix)", "Dancin Forever (edit)", "Music Is All You Need (12" mix)", and "Weekend Two Step (12" mix)". CD

Demon (UK), 1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $15.99
100 tracks of prime 80s soul – served up in a compact package at a mighty nice price! The work here runs the gamut of 80s dancefloor modes – from late disco tracks to early house cuts, with plenty of other styles in between – and the range of artists is mostly mainstream, in a way that makes the set a perfect throwback to the decade of fades and big shirts! Big hits are mixed with some lesser-known gems – and titles include "Hold Me Tighter In The Rain" by Billy Griffin, "Saturday Love" by Cherrelle & Alexander O'Neal, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Don't Take It Personal" by Jermaine Jackson, "Let Somebody Love You" by Keni Burke, "Dreamin" by Greg Henderson, "Body Work" by Hot Streak, "Jitterbuggin" by Heatwave, "Between The Sheets" by The Isley Brothers, "One On One" by Hall & Oates, "Rockit" by Herbie Hancock, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Are You Ready" by Billy Ocean, "This Is The Right Time" by Lisa Stansfield, "How Bout Us" by Champaign, "Use It Up & Wear It Out" by Odyssey, "Just A Groove" by Glen Adams Affair, "Lifetime Love" by Joyce Sims, and lots lots more!

VariousPhilly Sound You Never Heard Vol 2 – Philly Soul Girls Vol 2 – Morris Bailey Girl Groups 1964 to 1971 ... CD
Philly Archives, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
A treasure trove of female soul – all from the Philly scene of the 60s and 70s, and all of it rare enough to warrant the "never heard" promise in the title! The material all comes from the vaults of Philly producer Morris Bailey – not as big a name as Gamble & Huff, but clearly a cat who knows his way around a studio when working with such great talent like this! The set starts out with some straight-romping numbers that echo the familiar Philly styles of the mainstream – but as the set goes on, there's definitely an evolution in sound – one that shows more complicated charts, unusual themes, and some of the growing sophistication you might hear in early Gamble & Huff Philly productions. A number of tracks here are previously unreleased – and titles include "The Bigger Your Heart" by Mel Vena Allen, "All That's Good" by Tico Mills, "Your Kinda Love" by Bette Renee & Thrillettes, "Bless Your Love" by Femm-ells, "Lonely Little Girl" by Little Teena Bronson, "Cross My Heart" by Joan Proctor, "Trouble" by Cooperettes, "Something We Got" by Minx, and "We Got The Feeling" by Ronnie & Joyce.

Forget the "honky tonk" in the title – because this girl knows how to groove! Ellen McIlwaine's got to be one of the most unique talents of the past 50 years – a skilled guitarist, and great singer – working in a blend of folk, jazz, and soul that lies somewhere between the best tunes by Joyce and Joni Mitchell! This album's one of 2 classics she cut for Polydor back in her early years – a mixture of live and studio tunes that are filled with scatting vocals, skittish rhythms, and some really tight (and almost funky) work on acoustic guitar! Tracks include a killer version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Can't Find My Way Home", "Wings Of A Horse", "Toe Hold", "Losing You", "Weird of Hermiston", and "Up From the Skies".

The recent merger of the musical giants means that Blue Note tracks sit next to Verve numbers from the US, and older Brazilian recordings on labels like Odeon or Elenco – more than enough music to make a mighty great selection of music! The set also features a few numbers of more recent vintage – and titles include "The Dolphin" by Bill Evans, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Sambou Sambou" by Doris Monteiro, "Monsieur Binot" by Joyce, "Soul Bossa Nova" by Quincy Jones, "Chup Chup I Got Away" by Marcos Valle, "We & The Sea" by Tamba 4, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, "Summer Samba" by Walter Wanderley, "Upa Nequinho" by Duke Pearson, "Wave" by Ron Carter, and "Inutil Paisagem" by Milton Banana Trio.

Nilson Matta's got plenty of great musical friends in this world – and thankfully, a good number of them showed up in the studio to help him with this batch of Brazilian-tinged jazz tunes! The record's overflowing with great contributions from a lineup of players that includes Brazilian artists Rosa Passos, Ivan Lins, Joyce, Joao Bosco, Mauricio Einhorn, and Duduka Da Fonseca – as well as American jazzmen Kenny Barron, Harry Allen, and Jeff Tain Watts – and throughout it all, Nilson's at the helm, working in round, warm acoustic basslines that tie together the talents and styles present on the record. Most arrangements are by Matta, but Ivan Lins, Joyce, and Joao Bosco helped out a bit too – and titles include "Nana", "Berimbau", "Night & Day", "Creek", "Samba Sem Voce", "Jade", "Perfume De Cebola", and "I Only Have Eyes For You", sung in English by Joyce!

A very cool 70s album from Quarteto Em Cy – done with a sound that's quite different than their earlier work, but still pretty darn great! There's a compressed approach used to record the vocals here – a style that takes off from their 1972 album, but has a slightly more electrified feel – almost the warmth of some of the best French work of the 70s. The vocals are still wonderful, and really sound great in this setting – never cheesy and instead almost expanded by the new approach. Titles include a great version of Joyce's "Feminina", plus "Maria Maria", "Sabia", "Vinho Amargo", "Bom Dia", and "Nada Alem". LP, Vinyl record album

Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD

P-Vine (Japan), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of 70s soul, jazz, and funk – all brought together with the kind of soaring, positive vibe we remember from the classic Free Soul collections! In case you don't recognize the term, it emerged in the late 90s Japanese scene as a way of identifying older American grooves that have a really upbeat sort of sound – a style that's a lot like the cuts that were dug by the rare groove scene, but even groovier and more progressive overall – with a subtle sort of righteous energy that really gives the cuts a lot of power. This set brings together that Free Soul vibe from a host of American indie tracks recently reissued on the P-Vine label – a rare groove treasure trove, with titles that include "Hunk Of Heaven" by Lemuria, "Never Did I Stop Loving You" by Alice Clark, "Loveland" by Spanky Wilson, "Love Means Everything" by Touch Of Class, "Love Oh Love" by Vince Andrews, "A Perfect Day" by Bobby Cole, "In This World" by Billy Wooten, "Inner City Blues" by Placebo, "It's You" by Joyce Cooling, "Keep It Up" by Milton Wright, "Ray Of Hope" by Soul Generation, and "Rainbow In Your Eyes" by Judy Roberts.

P&P, 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first collection ever to track the genius of Patrick Adams, the legendary producer who had a huge influence on 70s soul – starting with group harmony in the early part of the decade, and running through classic club in the latter half! These days, Adams is best-remembered as one half of the legendary P&P Records team (Peter Brown was the other half) – but this set starts before his P&P years, and begins with a range of great singles from the early 70s that Adams' warm touch on harmony vocals – then moves into a batch of even hipper uptempo disco tracks! The package pulls together work from a wide number of labels, all to showcase Adams' even wider range of talents – and it's great to have all this work together in one collection! 2CD version features 18 tracks in all – titles that include "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "Surrender" by Black Ivory, "I Just Want To Spend My Life With You" by Pete Warner, "You Believed In Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Executive Suite, "Kings & Queens" by Patrick Adams Institute, "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Donna McGhee, "My Baby's Got ESP" by 4 Below Zero, "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "In The Bush" by Musique, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Atmosphere Strut (1979 rmx)" by Cloud One, "Lady Bug" by Bumblee Unlimited, "Flying High" by Cloud One, "Everybody Wants My Body (rmx)" by Sandra Herring, and "Come & Make Me Feel Good" by Shades Of Love with Katherine Joyce.

New Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... CD
Inner City, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train".

Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet set of 70s fusion tracks from Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando". LP, Vinyl record album

New Edu LoboDois Tons Edu Lobo – Camaleo/Tempo Presente ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1978/1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great package – one that brings together two overlooked albums from Edu Lobo! Camaleao is a gem of a later album from the great Edu Lobo – very different than his bossa recordings, and with a sophisticated jazzy vibe that perfectly illustrates all the growth he'd achieved during the 70s! The songs are wonderful – complex and yet really personal, with a quality that rivals some of the best from the Milton Nascimento/Lo Borges camp of the time. And like those, there's a jazzy quality to the instrumentation that really keeps things fresh – lots of contributions from musicians like Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Paulo Moura on reeds, Antonio Adolfo on piano, and Dori Caymmi on guitar. Backing vocals are by Boca Livre and MPB4 – but it's Edu's honest lead vocals that really send the whole thing home – sparkling wonderfully on tunes that include "Canudos", "Coracao Noturno", "Sanha De Mandinga", "Lero Lero", "Camaleo", "Bate Boca", and "O Trenzinho do Capira". Tempo Presente is wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound – but always in a way that's never commercial or slick at all – and which instead realizes this complicated jazzy vibe that comes through even better with this instrumentation than it did during the bossa nova years! Lobo's vocals have a quality that's mature, yet really personal too – and the album's a real testament to his great songwriting skills over the years – even on the few instrumental tracks. Joyce guests on one track, as does Dorival Caymmi – and the set also features some backing vocals from Boca Livre. Titles include "Tempo Presente", "Rei Morto, Rei Posto", "Quase Sempre", "Balada De Outono", and "Dono Do Lugar". CD

Polydor/Universal (Brazil), 1972/1974/1976. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Three of the greatest albums from Jorge Mautner – really overlooked work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s, presented here in a great 3CD package! First up is Para Iluminar A Cidade – a masterpiece from the Brazilian underground of the post-Tropicalia years – one of the first albums by Jorge Mautner, one of Brazil's most unique talents at the time! Although Jorge's main instrument is the violin, he lays low on it for much of the record – singing amidst rootsy rhythms, folkloric instrumentation, and an overall post-sixties sense of righteous empowerment. Tracks are spare and jagged, but never unpleasant – and the record has a brittle quality that makes it as striking today as it must have been back in the early 70s. Tracks include "Anjo Infernal", "Super Mulher", "Olhar Bestial", "Sapo Cururu", and "Estrela Da Noite" – plus the English language tracks "Sheridan Square" and "From Faraway", which have a feel that almost reminds us of work on Caetano Veloso's Transa album. The self-titled Jorge Mautner album features production work by Gilberto Gil, who also plays guitar on the record, and gives it a very Gil-esque early 70s feel! Joyce's husband Tutty Moreno plays drums, and the set also includes electric violin work by Mautner, which gives some tracks a nice spacey feel. The set's a cool mix of rock, funk, and jazzy production – and titles include "Pipoca A Meia Noite", "Guzzy Muzzy", "Rock Da TV", "Samba Dos Animais", "O Relogio Quebrou", and "Matematica Do Desejo". Mil E Uma Noites De Bagada has a vibe that's almost upbeat, but which also has some of the darker currents of Jorge Mautner's earlier music too – a balance that's struck well by Perinho Albuquerque, who plays guitar and directs the arrangements – often with the same flair he brought to bigger 70s projects with artists like Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Chico Buarque, and Maria Bethania! A few tunes show his proclivity for a groove – a gentle funkiness that makes for a nice change with Jorge's vocals – almost like the shift Caetano made on his Bicho record. Yet like that one, there's plenty of weird, offbeat moments here too – on tracks that include "Rainha Do Egiot", "Samba Jambo", "Ai Ai Ai", "Txim Plam", "Aeroplanos", and "O Som Do Meu Violino". The first album also features three bonus tracks – "Relaxa Meu Bem Relaxa", "Planeta Dos Macacos", and "Rock Da Barata (live)". CD

An insanely big collection of tracks from Brazil – a 4CD collection that features a wonderful run of tracks from the key bossa years of the 60s to the explosion of MPB, samba soul, and other styles in the 70s! The format's is very wide-ranging – no real structure or order to the tracks – but we can say that the 81-track collection is filled with grooves we've loved for years, including a fair bit of the kinds of Brazilian music that first got us started digging many years ago! If you're new to Brazilian music, the set's a great place to start – especially if you want to get past the hits – and if you already have some bossa or samba at home, there's probably other cuts here you haven't heard at all. Titles include "Glorioso Santo Antonio" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi, "Vento Bravo" by Edu Lobo, "Comanche" by Jorge Ben, "Vatapa" by Gal Costa, "Melo Da Cuica" by Azymuth, "Garra" by Marcos Valle, "Me Libertei" by Toni Tornado, "Nem Vem Que Nao Tem" by Wilson Simonal, "Escadas Da Penha" by Joao Bosco, "Fibra" by Paulo Moura, "Mas Que Nada" by Elza Soares, "Primitivo" by Milton Banana Trio, "Feminina" by Joyce, "Preta Pretinha" by Novos Baianos, "Black Soul Brothers" by Miguel De Deus, "Reza Brava" by Piri, "Roda" by Elis Regina, "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro" by Band Black Rio, and "Samblues" by Sambalanco Trio.

New VariousModern Sounds From Italy 3 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rich document of the growth in the Italian jazz scene in recent years – a great leap forward not just for individual musicians, but also for the Schema label as well! Schema first began in the 90s with a relatively programmed approach to jazz – a style that loved the classics, but often reworked them in modern production modes. Yet over the years, the company's really come to be a key home for real jazz and soulful sounds – moving past their original remix identity, to a point where they're arguably one of the most important jazz labels on the European scene! This nicely-priced batch of tracks is a great illustration of that growth – and features a few old Schema faves, mixed with newer artists who've flocked to the label in recent years – presented here in some unique remixes and other nice versions we haven't heard before. Titles include "Beyond The Days" by Gaetano Partiplio, "But Not For You" by Alessandro Maganini, "Hurt Me Bad" by Andrea Balducci, "Waltz For Emily" by Gerardo Frisina, "Banzo" by Rosalia De Souza, "Some Kind Of Blues (Grooveman Spot rmx)" by S-Tone Inc, "Welcome To My World (acoustic)" by Joyce Elaine Yuille, "Hear Us Now" by Christian Prommer's Drumlesson, "Alta Tensione 3am" by Alex Puddu, and "Good Life" by Timo Lassy.

The b-side features the always nice and smooth production of Prince Paul this time using the same sample YZ used on "Crocodile Dundee" and almost sounding like a KMD track. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

New VariousBeatles 69 Vol 3 – Abbey Road Revisited ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sound of The Beatles, completely re-imagined by a host of hip acts from Brazil – a stunning lineup that includes some under-discovered talents from the younger generation, plus a few key artists from earlier years as well! As you'd guess from the "69" in the title, most of the tracks here are from the final years of the group – a fair bit of material from Abbey Road – opened up and given a whole new sort of energy here – showing the rich inspiration the fab four were still able to provide, even at the end! Beatles music has been a crucial influence on Brazil, from the 60s Jovem Guarda and Tropicalia scenes onward – and the work here really shows the range of influences, extrapolated through really creative instrumentation, vocal arrangements, and production techniques. The whole thing's hardly another "tribute to" session – and instead is more like an extended poem inspired by the work of John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Titles on this third volume include "Here Comes The Sun" by Joyce, "Something" by Flavio Venturini & Aggeu Marques, "Polythene Pam" by Autoramas, "The End" by Milton Nascimento, "Mean Mr Mustard" by Joao Donato with Paula Morelenbaum, "Because" by Aretha, "Golden Slumbers" by Elis Regina & Milton Nascimento, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" by Pouca Vogal, and "Her Majesty" by Silvia Machete.
