✨✧ Vinicius CantuariaVinicius Canta Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Sunnyside, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A truly beautiful tribute to the classic songcraft of Antonio Carlos Jobim – done with warmth, reverence and soul-stirring voice and guitar by Vinicius Cantuaria! The Tom Jobim songbook is timeless, of course, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that one of the finer Brazilian voices of a later generation could handle it, but this set is exceptionally strong! Some of the best numbers are on the spare side, with Cantuaria's voice up front in the mix, giving it an intimate quality that we love – but it also includes some wonderful musicians from both Rio and Tokyo – where the tracks were recorded – plus some nice guest guitar work by Bill Frisell on a couple tunes and a lovely duet with Joyce. Includes "Ligua", "Caminhos Cruzados" featuring Joyce, "Vivo Sonhando", "So Danco Samba", "Este Seu Ohlar", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Felicade", "Insensatez", "Inutil Paisagem", "Voce Vai Ver", "Por Causa De Voce" and more. 13 in all.

Antonio Carlos JobimComposer Of Desafinado Plays ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts the orchestra, and Jobim plays guitar and piano – with a core group that also features Jimmy Cleveland on trombone and Leo Wright on flute, both American jazz players who help add some further complexities to the sound. Tracks include "Jazz Samba", "Favela", "O Morro", "Aqua De Beber", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Chega De Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimJobim (aka Maita Pere) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible moment of genius from Jobim! The record features one of the best versions of "Aqua De Marco" ever recorded – done up in these haunting blue chords, backed by great baroque orchestrations, which descend and trail off, then come sweeping back in. The whole album's just as great, with amazing orchestrations and arrangements by Claus Ogerman, and a very deep concept behind Jobim's normally simple compositons. With the tracks "Nuvens Douradas", "Tempo Do Mar", "Ana Luiza", and "Cronica Da Casa Assassinada" – and a haunting English language version of "Aqua De Marco". This English version was left off the Brazilian release of the album, which was entitled Matita Pere. CD

Antonio Carlos JobimLove, Strings & Jobim ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good ... $6.99
A breezy bossa classic from Jobim – recorded in LA, in case you couldn't tell from the cover image that has ol' AC standing with his guitar in a Pacific sunset! The sound's got a nice easy finish – with arrangements by Deodato and Maestro Gaya that are very much in the spirit of Jobim's work for larger ensembles – and the album features darkly sophisticated versions of bossa classics like "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Berimbau", "Samba Torto", "Chuva", and "Imagem". Nice stuff, and with a bit more punch than the "love and strings" title might imply! LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimSymphonic Jobim (aka Jobim Sinfonico) ... CD
Adventure Music, 2002. Used 2CD ... $6.99
A beautiful set of symphonic tracks based around the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim – work that stretches back to the 50s, up through 60s bossa nova, and even includes some of Jobim's more complicated orchestrations from the 70s! The music is done in the arch-baroque style of other titles on the Biscoito Fino label – with a full symphony orchestra, smaller instrumental groupings, and even some strong vocal performances that drift in and out of the music. The set features re-interpretations of original arrangements by Jobim, Nelson Riddle, Deodato, Claus Ogerman, and others – and was put together by Paulo Jobim. Titles include "Lenda", "Macumba", "O Homem", "Saudade Do Brasil", "Matita Pere", "Chora Coracao", "Bangzalia", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Gabriela". Very nicely done 2CD set! CD

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius De MoraesBrasilia – Sinfonia Da Alvorada ... LP
Doxy, 1958. New Copy ... $20.99
Not the usual bossa nova you might expect from Antonio Carlos Jobim – but instead a larger, more ambitious piece of music – written for the opening of the city of Brasilia, to mark a whole new generation in Brazilian modernism! The music is often orchestral, and shows the wonderful ear for a score that Jobim would develop in later 60s arrangements – a style that hints at the bossa backings to come, but which also has some of the darker currents of the Black Orpheus soundtrack, although less percussion. Vinicius De Moraes adds in some great spoken bits – and titles include "O Planalto Deserto", "O Homem", "Coral", "A Chegada Dos Candangos", and "O Trabalho E A Construcao". LP, Vinyl record album
(140 gram vinyl pressing!)

Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Tom Jobim (1979) ... LP
RCA (Brazil), 1979. Near Mint- ... $24.99
This second collaboration between these two great talents is every bit as wonderful as the first – a great later set of bossa-revival work, done by Tom Jobim and Miucha in a similar mode to his earlier work with Elis Regina! The set was recorded in New York, with spacious production from the legendary Aloysio De Oliveira – and the result's a beautiful combination of lilting melody and warm vocals that shows that Jobim could still sound wonderful, even after his initial 60s classics. Chico Buarque and Joao Donato contribute to the magic, and titles include "Turma Do Funil (No Baixo Leblon)", "Triste Alegria", "Sublime Tortura", "Samba Do Carioca", "Falando De Amor", "No Cego", and "Dinheiro Em Penca".

Sylvia TellesSings The Wonderful Songs Of Antonio Carlos Jobim ... LP
Kapp, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A beautiful album of mellow bossa tracks sung by Sylvia Telles – all written by Jobim, of course, and given a lovely and melodic touch! Sylvia's vocals are incredible – often in English on some of the tracks (the album was briefly issued in the US in the 60s), and done in a style that's sad and mellow, but never overdone or too emotive – perfect for the subtle genius of Jobim! Arrangements are by Maestro Gaya – a blend of strings and light instrumentation that really recalls the style of some of the best California bossa sessions of the 60s, especially those by Jobim for Warner. Titles include "Bonita", "One Note Samba", "Roses & Roses", "Quiet Nights", "Dindi", and "Dreamer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has heavy wear on the bottom seam.)

Antonio Carlos JobimTide ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible record – from the first off-key note to the last! The album's filled with some wonderfully moody LA studio sounds, arranged by Deodato, and a has a great swirling mix of sound that weaves around Jobim's lofty guitar and piano beautifully – complex, but still with the airy sense of space that Antonio Carlos first brought to his music in the 60s. From the very first note, you can feel the strange magic of Jobim and Deodato at work – as the album appears to be smooth and mellow, yet has a strangely unsettling undertone that keeps us coming back after all these years! Tracks include "Tema Jazz", "Carinhoso", "Rockanalia", and a nice remake of "Girl From Ipanema". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set of jazz than you might expect – with Sergio grooving hard on piano, and throwing in some light bossa touches to tracks that include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil".

Vinicius De Moraes & OthersVinicius De Moraes Songbook Vol 1 ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1993. Used ... $9.99
One of the first, and best, of the great Lumiar Songbook series. The set is a loving tribute to the great Vinicius De Moraes – Brazilian poet turned songwriter, and one of the country's greatest lyricists of all time. This first volume features artists like Tom Jobim, Ivan Lines, Simone, Antonio Adolfo, Emilio Santiago, Carlos Lyra, Toquinho, Quarteto Em Cy, Joyce, and others – all doing lively versions of some of Moraes' best works – written over the years with artists like Baden Powell, Tom Jobim, Toquinho, and others. Very nice, and with excellent production values! CD

Marcos ValleSamba Demais (plus bonus track) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums! The record's very much in a moody bossa mode, and the orchestrations are wonderful – light, but never sleepy – really done with that unique new bent that Brazilian artists were using at the time, best heard in the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim. There's a nice sense of darkness here that doesn't show up on some of Valle's later albums – a really moody sensibility that works beautifully with the fragile nature of the tunes. A few cuts are originals by Valle, and others are familiar bossa tracks – with titles that include "Vivo Sonhando", "Moca Flor", "Sonho De Maria", "E Vem O Sol", "Tudo De Voce", and "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal" – plus the bonus track "Vamos Pranchar".

VariousElenco Records Box Set (Vinicius & Odette Lara/Nara 1964/Caymmi Visita Tom/Bossa Nova York/Vinicius & Caymmi No Zum Zum) (5LP set) ... LP
Elenco/Polysom (Brazil), Mid 60s. New Copy 5LPs ... $174.99
Amazing bossa nova from 60s Brazil – a limited box set that features five classic albums from the Elenco Records label, pressed up on very high quality vinyl! Album #1 – the Vinicius & Odette Lara album from 1963 – a dream of a bossa session! The lovely Odette Lara sings vocals – and the music was written by Baden Powell and Vinicius De Morais, with arrangements by the great Moacir Santos. The sound is perfect Elenco bossa – with lightly lilting orchestrations that still have a lot of soul, and perfectly produced vocals drifting over the top. Titles include "Astronauta", "Berimbau", "Seja Feliz", "Samba Preludio", and "Alem Do Amor". Album #2 – Nara Leao 1964 – Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich with feeling, without sounding too overwrought or overemotional – in sharp contrast to the style of Brazilian divas from a few years before. Includes a wonderful version of Santos' "Nana", plus the tracks "Cancao Da Terra", "Consolacao", "Maria Moita", and "Berimbau". Album #3 – Caymmi Visita Tom – A landmark meeting of two Brazilian generations! The older singer/songwriter Dorival Caymmi meets up with Tom Jobim in this moody session of stripped-down tracks recorded in the famous Elenco style – and the result is a classic album that spans two generations of Brazilian music. Dorival brought along children Nana, Danilo, and Dori Caymmi to the session, and the backing includes percussion by Edison Machando – an guitar by Dori, and flute by Danilo. Tracks include "Sem Voce", "Berimbau", "Tristeza De Nos Dois", "Vae De Vez", and "Das Rosas". Album #4 – Bossa Nova York – A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set of jazz than you might expect – with Sergio grooving hard on piano, and throwing in some light bossa touches to tracks that include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". Album #5 – Vinicius & Caymmi No Zum Zum – An amazingly beautiful album, recorded by Vinicius De Moraes, Dorival Caymmi, Oscar Castro-Neves, and The Quarteto Em Cy for some sort of a special show. Castro-Neves provides some excellent bossa backing, the Quarteto girls sing chorus and over the top, Vinicius does some recitations, and Caymmi sings lead vocals. If the whole thing sound's a bit heavy-handed, it's not – and instead is an amazing batch of heavenly bossa-tinged tracks, with all the intelligence and imagination of the best titles on the Elenco label. The whole thing's extremely lively, and has an other-worldly sound that matches Vinicius' classic Afro Sambas LP with Baden Powell. Tracks include "Bom Dia Amigo", "Berimbau", "Historia De Pescadores", "Formosa", "Broto Maroto", and "Aruanda". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful album of Joao Gilberto's early bossa tracks from Brazil – loaded up here with various numbers from other great Brazilian stars! The original one of the first few that he ever recorded, and it's a masterpiece of understatement, recorded with arrangements by a young Antonio Carlos Jobim, and a soaring bossa sound that would soon make history. Tracks include "Discussao", "O Pato", "Outra Vez", "Doralice", and "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Se E Tarde", "Corcovado", "So Em Teus Bracos" and more.

That's a mouthful of heavy-hitters, we know – but the result is a totally great session that has Astrud's light and gentle vocals drifting over some of the most magical bossa backings you'll ever hear. The whole thing's great, stuffed with bossa classics done in English – and titles include "Once I Loved", "Aqua De Beber", "O Morro", "Dindi", "Dreamer", and "Photograph". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Morelenbaum 2/SakamotoCasa ... CD
Sony, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A light and lovely album from the trio of Jacques Morelenbaum cello, Paula Morelenbaum voice, and Ryuichi Sakamoto piano! The "casa" in the title refers to the "casa" of Antonio Carlos Jobim, where part of the album was recorded – as you may well hear in the Jobim-esque presentation of the material. The light touch of Sakamoto's piano is wonderful – and it's great to hear him working in such a setting, after years of expressing Brazilian influences in many of his compositions. Paula's vocals are light and airy, and the cello of Jacques fills in the spaces with a sad and moody feel that fits the material well. Titles include "Sabia", "Chanson Pour Michelle", "Bonita", "Estrada Branca", "Amor Em Paz", "Sem Voce", "Experanca Perdida", and "Tema Para Ana". CD

A lovely compilation – featuring some totally solid tracks from the past, all of which perfectly sum up the bossa nova spirit, while also pushing the sound of the genre! The tracks are mostly pulled from older recordings in the Universal family of labels – Verve, Philips, Fontana, and so on – but are also mixed with a few other gems pulled in from outside sources, and packaged with a flair for maintaining just the right spirit, so that uptempo tracks glide into mellower ones, and dance again back to a more spontaneous groove. Titles include "Voce" by Meirelles E Os Copa 5, "Know It All" by Tamba 4, "Muito A Vontade" by Joao Donato, "Lost In The Paradise" by Gal Costa, "Coisa No 1" by Moacir Santos, "Tristeza Vai Embora" by Edson Machado, "Vivo Sonhando" by Wanda Sa, "So Tinha De Ser Come Voce" by Elis Regina, "Remember" by Antonio Carlos Jobim, and "Ela E Caricoa" by Marcos Valle.

Discobertas (Brazil), 1960s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little box set – filled with 10 rare bossa nova albums from the Brazilian underground of the 60s – almost all of which we'd never heard before! The records here were mostly issued on small labels at the time – the kind of sets that never circulated widely outside of Brazil, and which often have unusual and striking sounds that are quite different from mainstream bossa work on labels like Verve or Elenco! There's a fair bit of jazz on most albums, and the instrumentation varies nicely throughout – sometimes more sax up front, sometimes more acoustic guitar, or offbeat horn arrangements, odd percussion, and lots of other sweet touches! Each CD features two full albums, completely with cover art and other details of the records – and the set features the albums Balanco E Bossa Nova by Ritmistas Da Bossa, Sambalanco by Orquesta Moderna De Samba, Isso E Bossa Nova Mesmo by Conjunto Sambossa, Saxsambando by Os Saxsambistas Brasileiros, O Balanco E A Bossa by Conjunto Masterplay, Samba Do Bom by Conjunto Samba De Balanco, Samba Pra Frente by Samba Trio, A Musica Maravilhosa De Antonio Carlos Jobim by Bossa Brass, and the self-titled 1964 album by Os Azes De Bossa.

One of Joao Gilberto's first-ever albums – filled with incredibly beautiful bossa material that captures the vocals and guitar of Gilberto at their fragile early best – backed by sublime arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley! The setting is perfect, and the sound is amazing – that incredible stripped-down breathy quality that made Joao a legend right out of the box – which so many others tried to copy over the years, but never got this right. A beautiful relic from the past – with a lovely image of Joao's young face on the cover – and titles that include "O Barquinho", "O Amor Em Paz", "Voce e Eu", "Coisa Mas Linda", and "Presente De Natal". LP, Vinyl record album
