Bebel GilbertoAll In One ... CD
Verve, 2009. Used ... $7.99
Lovely work from Bebel Gilberto – her debut for Verve – which in a way, brings her home, given that Verve released so many great records in the 60s from Brazilian artists with boundary skirting appeal! Bebel's work has never lacked warmth, but she's bringing even more of it to this set, with less clubby textures, and more of a timeless blend of voice, strings and percussion. Even the tunes produced or co-produced by John King of the Dust Brothers and Mark Ronson are steeped in a real love of classic bossa soul, just done with a nice modern groove, with some subtle programming. Carlinhos Brown's percussion is kind of the secret sauce here, but there's no overshadowing Bebel's lovely, wonderful vocals – and the covers are very well chosen. A little less than half the songs are sung in English, and titles include "Cancao De Amor", Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining", Stevie Wonder's "The Real Thing", "Ela", "Far From The Sea", "All In One" and more.

Louie Vega & OthersStarring – XXVIII ... CD
Vega, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... $25.99
A massive project from the great Louie Vega – a man who's given us plenty of majestic moments since his early years in Masters At Work and Nuyorican Soul – but an artist who's maybe outdone himself here, thanks to help from a huge amount of guests and singers! The "starring" in the title doesn't refer to Louie, but to the key talents who help shape the individual tracks on the set – a talent roster large enough to include Vikter Duplaix, Tony Momrelle, N'Dea Davenport, The Clark Sisters, Winans Brothers, Zara McFarlane, Funkadelic, Jocelyn Brown, Kenny Bobien, Josh Milan, Lisa Fischer, Byron Stingily, Leroy Burgess, Caron Wheeler, and others – all of whom work perfectly with Louie – not in a way that has their talents thrown in for extra spice, but instead very deeply woven into the fabric of Vega's music – in a richly collaborative spirit that makes the album a gem all the way through! All the cuts are in the positive, soulful, inspirational vibe we've always loved in Louie's projects – and titles include "Gift Of Love", "Angels Are Watching Me", "Ain't That Funkin Hard On You", "You Are Everything", "Joy Inside My Tears", "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Es Vedra", "Everlasting Love", "I Deserve To Breathe", "Ain't No Stopping Love", "Gimme Some Love", "Can We Keep This Going", and "See Some Light".
