A really cool shift for this hip Brazilian combo – one that you might guess right away from the "samba" in the title! This time around, the rhythms are even more lively than before – lots of tight percussion that spurs the group on strongly, and which also seems to have given a lot more space to the Hammond in the group than the lead guitar! The instruments are used almost equally on this gem of a set – so that some cuts have a bubbling organ samba sound that's like Walter Wanderley or Ed Lincoln, while others still have that twangy guitar we love on other albums by The Pops. Titles include "Desespero De Causa", "Amor De Carnival", "Se Voce Jurar", "Exaltacao A Mangueira", "Nao Tenho Lagrimas", and "Agora E Samba No 1". CD also features two bonus tracks – vocal and instrumental versions of "Butterflies Are Free".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Totally cool, totally wonderful – and a massive set of hardly-heard work from Brazilian keyboardist Djalma Ferreira! Djalma's a name that's not nearly as well-known in the states as Walter Wanderley – but he got his start well before Walter, working in some 50s modes that were mighty ... CD

Cornucopia
Sunnyside, 2013. New Copy
A sublime setting for the vocals of the great Ivan Lins – wrapped up here in some really inventive arrangements from the SWR Big Band, who bring an energy to the album we haven't heard from Lins in years! Ivan's vocals take on this soaring, fluid quality that reminds us why we first fell in ... CD

Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – ... CD
