New Sambrasa TrioSambrasa Trio Em Som Maior ... CD
Som Maior/Som Livre (Brazil), 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rarely early bossa recording from Hermeto Pascoal – heard here on both piano and flute, and working in a pre-Quarteto Novo trio alongside a young Airto Moreira on drums! The sound is much more conventionally bossa than any of Hermeto's later work – but still filled with a tremendous sense of fluid grace and invention – a markedly different mode than some of his contemporaries of the time, and a sound that really hints at the genius to come. Airto's totally great too – hitting the drum kit in all sorts of unusual ways, and already demonstrating a strongly melodic approach to percussion. The last member of the group is bassist Humberto Clayber, who also plays a bit of cool harmonica – and titles include "A Jardineira", "Clerenice", "Duas Contas", "Arrastao", "Sambrasa", "Aleluia", and "Joao Sem Branco".

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

New Sambalanco TrioImproviso Negro ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the rare few albums recorded by Sambalanco Trio in the 60s – a brilliant mix of piano, bass, and drums – and still the blueprint for the bossa combo sound! The group featured a young Airto on drums, Cesar Camargo Mariano on piano, and Humberto Clayber on bass – and the sound here is a bit more complicated than usual for a bossa group, with lots of flowing lines on piano, and a complicated approach to the music that often has the group running through a lot of time changes in a very short span. Includes the tracks "Improviso Negro", "Deus Brasileiro", "Estamos Ai", "Nana", "Reza", "Samba De Verao", and "Voce". (Also issued as a self-titled album, on the Som/Maior label.) 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

New Joao Mello with Tamba TrioA Bossa Do Balanco (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
