Brazil 77

CD


4.50 2

Breezy bossa from late 70s Paris – a rare European session from Rio ex-patriots Erica Norimar and Chiquinho Timoteo! The record's got a warmly jazzy glow that takes full advantage of the vocals of both artists – trading them back and forth on the more lively tunes, in a way that's clearly inspired by the older Brasil 66 style of the 60s, but reworked here into a slightly hipper 70s sound. Instrumentation is mostly acoustic, with a lot of percussion and guitar that give the tracks a samba-styled groove – but a few tracks also feature a bit of keyboards, plus some occasional sax, flute, and trumpet. Titles include "Forro", "Dodo", "Hein", "Nega De Obaluae", "Gota D'Agua", "A Filha Da Chiquita Bacana", "De Frente Pro Crime", "Kid Cavaquinho", "Ligia", and "Vatapa".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Coisa Boa
Luaka Bop, 2014. New Copy
A rich new chapter in the career of Moreno Veloso – a set that steps off strongly from his work with the +2 trio, but in ways that are even more personal and poetic than before! The shift is a bit like that time when Caetano Veloso took all his previous experiments and found a more intimate ... CD

Siria
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
An incredible compilation of material by Mestre Cupijo and the musicians of Cameta – the Amazonian town where the Siria style was born! The always-great Analog Africa label turns to Brazil for this one – a nice step after their rich range of African reissues – given the nature ... CD

Mercury (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A wonderful album from Nara Leao – and one that features her singing duets with some of the greatest talents of the bossa era and beyond – an amazing lineup that includes Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo, Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, and others! The sound is wonderful ... CD

Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... CD

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Fantastic! This lost late-60s album by Marcos Valle is a real treasure, and it offers a musical bridge between his earlier bossa nova material, and his later, more experimental work! The production is beautifully baroque, with a feel that's similar to some of the early albums by Milton Nascimento ... CD

Agua E Luz
EMI (Japan), 1981. New Copy
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 ... CD

Etta James (1973)
Chess (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Heavy funk from the great Etta James – one of her standout classics from the later Chess years, done with a style that's completely different than her work of the 60s! The set was recorded in LA with a super-dope sound that's almost in a funky soundtrack mode – full horns, bits of ... CD

Groovewise
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy
Groovewise, the record's a great one – one of the strongest in years from pianist Eric Reed – who works here in an open-ended live setting with Seamus Blake on tenor! The album's a great example of the way these Smoke Sessions records can really open up the right sort of artist – ... CD

Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako
Sterns, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
Hardly the kind of group you'd hear in an American motel during the 70s – no cheesy lounge jazz here – and instead, a crucially important group on the West African scene, with great vocals by a young Salif Keita! The group have a style that nicely encompasses other influences from up ... CD
