Claudette SoaresFeitinha Pro Sucesso Ou Quem Nao E A Maior Tem Que Ser A Melhor (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $32.99
One of the grooviest records ever from Claudette Soares – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the amount of groovy work she recorded! The set features backings from the Briamonte Orchestra – who are great in blending subtle funk with larger orchestrations – at a level that really makes the whole album sparkle with that unusually compelling style of the Brazilian scene of the time – the kind of styles you might find in work by Marcos Valle, Som Tres, and others. The approach is really playful, and makes for some wonderful tunes throughout – and titles include "Psiu", "Juliana", "Qui Nem Jilo", "So Faltava Voce", "Evocacao", and "Que Maravilha". CD

Gal CostaRecanto Gal Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy DVD ... $16.99
Amazing sounds from Gal Costa – a brilliant live album that follows strongly in the mode of her Recanto studio album! Like that set, this one features Gal in the most experimental style she's used in years – bits of electronics and contemporary underground modes layered in with her sublime vocals – all in ways that reopen that leftfield side of Costa's talents that have been buried for so many years! Some tracks are quite intimate and personal, others are very powerful – and the performance was put together by both Caetano and Moreno Veloso, with backing by a trio that also features percussion from Domenico too. Titles include "Tudo Gil", "Da Maior Importancia", "Mansidao", "Forca Estranha", "Meu Bem Mel Mal", "O Amor", "Baby", "Deus E O Amor", "Segunda", "Barato Total", and "Autotune Autoerotico". DVD features subtitles in Portuguese, English, and Spanish. DVD

Joao Mello with Tamba TrioA Bossa Do Balanco (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $32.99
An overlooked singer from 60s Brazil – working here with some great bossa backings from the Tamba Trio! The trio usually sing on their own early records, but they step aside on the vocal tip, and let Joao handle all the lyrics on the set – while they provide their own great instrumentation arranged by Luiz Eca, who's got a way of mixing melancholy moods with subtle bossa grooves! Joao Mello plays a bit of guitar alongside his vocals, and the record also features this haunting flute work from bassist Bebeto – whose lines really complete the moody feel of the record. Titles include "Jogado For a", "Um Sonho Para Dois", "Gostoso E Sambar", "Voce Vai", "Faz De Conta", "O Maior Nao", and "Amor E Paz". CD

New Lucas SanttanaSem Nostalgia ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2009. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Another bold leap forward for Lucas Santtana – a Brazilian artist who really blows our mind with each new release! It's been a few years since we last heard from Lucas, but it's clear he's been doing plenty during the time – coming up with fresh new ideas, working on some English-based lyrics, and continuing to deepen his role as one of the greatest contemporary musicians working in Brazil! Some of the set echoes the dubbier styles of Lucas' last album – but other bits are more acoustic, and show a whole different sonic aspect in his music – one that almost moves towards the Kassin/Domenico camp, but with a quality that's a bit more personal too – possibly because of the English lyrics on about half of the album's tracks. The guitar is often produced with a weird echoey edge – vaguely metallic, yet still surprisingly warm – and Santtana's vocals have really developed a great sense of feeling over the years. Titles include "Who Can Say Which Way", "Super Violao Mashup", "Amor Em Jacuma", "Ca Pra Nos", "I Can't Live Far From My Music", "Hold Me In", "Natureza #1 Em Mi Maior", "Ripple Of The Water", and "Cira Regina E Nana".
