Luiz BonfaJacaranda ... LP
Ranwood, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
Very cool album recorded by Luiz Bonfa in the US, with cool electric arrangements by Deodato, and a sound that's unlike anything else he's ever done! Some tracks even get downright funky, and there's a nice break or two on here, if you're the type that digs for that sort of thing. Titles include "Apache Talk", "Sun Flower", "Jacaranda", "Strange Message", and "Danse V". Idris Muhammad's on drums, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

Luiz BonfaRecado Novo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1962. Used ... $9.99
A standout early album from Luiz Bonfa – one that features larger orchestrations than a number of his other sides, as well as a good blend of vocals in addition to Bonfa's haunting work on guitar. The album's got a full, rich sound – one that takes Bonfa to territory that we'd never expected, showing him to be a much more expressive artist than you'd hear on some of his "guitar with arrangements" sets. Maria Toledo sings on a few numbers as well, and titles include "Melancolia", "Mania De Maria", "Amor Demais", "Menina Flor", "Chorou Chorou", "Fio De Cancao", and "Indiferenca". CD

New Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Epic) ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! LP, Vinyl record album

New Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus Impressions ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A groovy blend of bossa themes and some of the lighter pop treatments that Bonfa often received – not really a problem for us, as the approach always filled out his sound a bit more, and made for some catchy tunes with a very groovy style! Tracks include "Bahia Soul", "Dois Amores", "Song Of The Hills", "Dreamy", "Samba De Orfeu", "Na Paz Do Amor", and "Rancho De Orfeu" – and arrangements are by Deodato, Bonfa, and Arnold Goland.

New Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the all time great ones! This mad bit of music was composed for the film by Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Carlos Jobim, and it's a crazy mix of batucada, samba, and a bit of bossa nova. The soundtrack takes all of the musical bits, and it mixes them up into an insane collage of sound effects, speaking, and music. It sounds incredible, and it's even more spooky than the movie. With loads of classics that you'll recognize – but done in a crazy crazy way – like "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval". Plus, this CD also includes a 13-minute medley of tracks from the score, performed by Bola Sete at the 1966 Monterey Jazz Fest! CD

Heraldo Do MonteO Violao Do Heraldo Monte ... CD
London/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A great guitar session from late 60s Brazil – bossa at its core, but with some other groovy touches too! Guitarist Heraldo Do Monte plays light acoustic, in a style that's right up there with Luiz Bonfa or Baden Powell – but the overall setting of the album also gives a nod towards some of the more advanced changes going on in Brazilian instrumental music at the time – the first inkling of some of the Blue Brazil touches from EMI/Odeon, with a deeper sophistication in some of the arrangements than just straight bossa. A few moments are straight ahead, mixed with others that have a nice degree of darkness – and titles include "Teletema", "My Cherie Amour", "Recit De Cassard", "Que Maravilha", "Casa Forte", and "Moanin".

Romero LubamboSo Brazilian Essence ... CD
Sunnyside, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
They definitely got the title right on this sweet set from Romero Lubambo – as the vibe is even more Brazilian than some of his other records – a great batch of solo guitar instrumentals, all with a vibrant quality that takes us back to the early bossa years of Joao Gilberto and Luiz Bonfa! The album's dedicated to Oscar Castro Neves – another key bossa creator – and Lubambo finds a way to keep things faithful while still bringing lots of his own feeling and expression to the music – particularly his ear for a deeper, wider tone on the acoustic guitar – ringing out here with this subtle sense of majesty. Titles include "Brigas Nunca Mais", "Pedra Bonita", "Voce E Eu", "Song For Kaya", "Luisa", "Coisa Mais Linda", "Laura", and "By The Stream". CD

VariousBrazilian Scene ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Not the entire Brazilian scene – but a sweet little set with some wonderful bossa numbers! About half the record features the initial album recorded by Ze Maria – the great Tudo Azul, a lost bossa organ classic – and a set that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a rare gem from early 60s Brazil, and features Ben singing in the same soulful style as on his own early records – dancing lightly over grooves set down by organist Ze Maria, who has a wonderful sound that's a lot like Walter Wanderley! The whole thing's a dream, and features early versions of Ben's own tracks "Mas Que Nada" and "Por Causa De Voce Menina" – plus the tracks "A Vida Do Negro", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Tudo Azul", and "Samba Do Aviao". Other tracks are from a variety of Brazilian sources – and include "Murmurio" by Luiz Bonfa, "Consolacao" by Baden Powell, "Uirapuru" by Heitor Villa Lobos, "Lento" by Radames Gnattali, and "Serenata Do Telecoteco" by Gilberto Gil.

VariousVinicius De Moraes – Modernism & Bossa Nova ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A set that really lives up to its title – especially considering that the music here is virtually the blueprint for the emergence of the modern in Brazilian music during the bossa generation! The collection features a range of different tunes from poet Vinicius De Moraes – an important early collaborator of Antonio Carlos Jobim, and one of the key architects of the bossa sound and spirit during the late 50s! The passage of tracks in the set really shows the evolution of the music – as it begins with more ambitious stage work done by the pair, then moves into a range of beautiful vocal numbers that illustrate all the subtle power of bossa lyricism at its best. Titles include "Um Nome Mulher" by Roberto Pava, "Eu Na Existo Sem Voce" by Silvia Telles & Lucio Alves, "Love & Peace" by Jon Hendricks, "Lamento No Morro Solo" by Luiz Bonfa, "Samba Em Preludio" by Agostinho Dos Santos & Rosana Toledo, "Aqua De Beber" by Ana Lucia, "Valsa De Euridice" by Lenita Bruno, "Chega De Saudade" by Os Cariocas, and "Valsa Do Amor De Nos Dois" by Elza Laranjeira.

Bill HarrisGreat Guitar Sounds ... LP
Mercury/Wing, Mid 50s/1959. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great 50s session from guitarist Bill Harris – known for his work in The Clovers, but a great jazz player as well! The sound here is really unique – very different than even his other albums of the time – in that Bill is playing solo acoustic guitar, in a style that's almost like that of Luiz Bonfa in the early days – light, airy, and very rhythmic – dancing out with a bit of swing, but also some tendencies we might be tempted to call early bossa! The whole thing's quite different than what you might expect for a player with R&B roots – and titles include "Daahoud", "Ethyl", "Wind Song", "Jordu", "Concerto For Jazz", and "Poinciana". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a bit of clear tape on the spine.)
