Milton BananaSambas De Bossa ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1970s/1993. Used ... $9.99
Tight bossa tracks from one of Brazil's best drummers! We've got to admit, we're not exactly sure when this one's from. Although the copyright date says 1993, we think that this stuff's from the 70s from the production sound – and has been repackaged in a dateless compilation by RCA. The tracks are short little bossa ditties, and nice samba grooves – all with warm jazzy production. Milton's drums are as hot as they always are, with the kind of tight snare action that made his 60s recordings amongst some of the best bossa records of the time. Cuts include "Flor De Liz", "Meu Guri", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Mas Que Nada", and "La Vem A Baiana". CD

Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $14.99
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $8.99
Darkly brilliant – and one of Joao Donato's most fantastic records! The set was recorded during Joao's time in America in the mid 60s – cut in New York with lofty backings by Claus Ogerman, in a pillowy soft mode that fits perfectly with Joao's light bossa piano lines, and which has all the hints of sadness and moodiness that often creep into his playing. The complicated approach of the album far surpasses some of Joao's work from Brazil at the same time – and the album's one of the best of its generation, a sublime mix of all elements that still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1965! Titles include "Amazonas", "Glass Beads", "Sugarcane Breeze", "Vento Do Canavail", "It Didn't End", and "O Barquinho". CD

Carlos LyraSarava! ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A great session by Carlos Lyra – recorded a few years after his bossa-era classics, but with a very similar feel! Carlos' vocals and guitar are as wonderful as ever – soft and gentle, with the right touch of sad emotion, but still the slight jazzy swing that's always made his work so great. The session was actually recorded in Mexico – and is one of Lyra's rarest albums – and in a way, the whole thing's even more unique than some of his better-known classics from earlier years! Titles include "El Jacal", "Blanaceo", "Vacilada", "Para No Decir Adios", "Lugar Bonito", and "Viene Del Amor". CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Vintage 74 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Bell/BMG (Japan), 1974. Used ... $15.99
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot more funk than you might be used to hearing on one of Sergio's albums, making the whole thing groove in a marvelous way – while still holding onto some Brazilian touches in the rhythms, and that sweet two-female vocal lead style of Sergio's other work. The set includes two funky Stevie Wonder covers – "Superstition" and "Don't You Worry About a Thing" – plus versions of "This Masquerade", "Voce Abusou", and "Double Rainbow". CD

Lisa Ono with Joao DonatoMinha Saudade ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1994. Used ... $14.99
A lovely bit of modern bossa from Japan! Lisa Ono's got a cool jazzy voice, and it sounds wonderful amidst the records arrangements by Joao Donato – some of the best that he's done in years, and encompassing a full range of his work, from the early bossa years, to the wonderful electric recordings of the 70s. If you dig Joao's classic Quem E Quem album, you'll really appreciate some of the work on here – but the record's equally appealing to any fan of jazzy Brazilian vocals. Titles include "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Ate Quem Sabe", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Quem Diz Que Sabe", "Brisa Do Mar", "Sambou Sambou", and "Terremoto". CD

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
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! (Soundtracks, Brazil) CD

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 (US pressing) ... CD
Philips, 1993. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Well, it's not the 60s anymore – but this is still a wonderful album that reunites Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the spirit of their Tropicalia years – done in a style that shows that creative invention was still alive in MPB during the 90s! There's echoes here of modes to come by artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Lenine, or Chico Science – all of whom are clearly influenced by the spirit of Veloso and Gil. Acoustic guitars mix with rhythm samples and abstract production – and Caetano and Gil's vocals shine as wonderfully as ever – possibly even more so, given the warmth that comes from their age. Titles include "Cinema Novo", "Nossa Gente", "Dada", "Aboio", "Baiao Atemporal", "As Coisas", "Rap Popcreto", and a version of Jimi Hendrix's "Wait Until Tomorrow". CD
