Luiz BonfaIntrospection ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $28.99
A pretty unique record from this famous Brazilian guitarist! Luiz recorded this set in New York – and it's a superb solo guitar session that has him playing the instrument as a "miniature orchestra", shading in a rich array of colors, tones, and harmonic spaces through his expert manipulation of the strings. There's still a bit of his earlier bossa phrasing in the record – but it mostly shows Bonfa as a richly talented individual on his instrument, moving past simple instrumental modes into virtuoso territory! Titles include "Adventure In Space", "Reflections", "Enchanted Mirror", "Concerto For Guitar", and "Rain". CD

Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Gal CostaGal Costa Canta Tom Jobim – Ao Vivo ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1999. Used 2CDs ... $9.99
Gal Costa sings the best of Antonio Carlos Jobim – working here with a really sparkling sound in a live performance that covers the space of two CDs! The backing is by a very nice little jazz group, and Gal's at her best later styles here – hitting nice jazzy vocal passages, and singing freely without any clunky arrangements to hold her back. Cristovao Bastos leads the group and handled the arrangements – and he's as great as ever in this top-shelf setting – sophisticated, but nicely swinging – in a way that really keeps things fresh. Titles include "Fotografia", "Wave", "Derradeira Primavera", "Triste", "Anos Dourados", "Ligia", "Tema De Amor De Garbriela", and "Samba Do Avaio". CD

LenineO Dia Em Que Faremos Contato ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1997. Used ... $7.99
Great work from one of Brazil's best artists of the past 10 years! Lenine has a groundbreaking style that mixes acoustic guitar, soulful vocals, hard percussion, electronics, and modern rock into a pomo blend that sounds a heck of a lot better than our cliche-littered description. The record's got the instant appeal of the best work by Beck, but it's also not as in love with itself, and has kind of a head to the ground seriousness that makes us treat it with a bit more respect. Titles include "Etnia Caduca", "A Ponte", "O Marco Marciano", "Que Baque E Esse?"and "Dois Olhos Negros". CD

✨✧ Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... $19.99
A pretty darn sweet vocal session from the duo of Miucha and Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded with lots of bossa overtones, very much the same spirit as the legendary Elis & Tom album of the mid 70s! Chico Buarque participates in the session, and Jobim even lends his vocal talents to a track or two – but his real talent, though, is his work on the arrangements – as he gives the whole thing a beautifully dreamy quality, in the manner of his best 70s work, with lots of strange off-kilter melodies floating around the mix of strings, piano, and flute! Miucha's vocals are lovely, and titles include "Sei La A Vida Tem Sempre Razao", "Vai Levando", "Comigo E Assim", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Saia Do Caminho". CD

✨✧ Joao BoscoBrazil's Best ... CD
RCA/BMG, 1970s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Brazil's MPB greats! Joao Bosco emerged as one of the 70s brightest stars in Brazil – and he had a lovely style that mixed samba, folk, and modern songwriting up into a very unique soulful sound. His best work was written with Adair Blanc, and this CD features 14 of their classics, pulled from Bosco's years at RCA, where he produced the finest work of his career. Titles include classics like "Kid Cavaquinho", "Caca A Raposa", "O Ronco Da Cuica", "Falsho Brilhante", "Galos De Briga", and "Bijuterias" – and the set's a great way to get into his work at a low price!

✨✧ MarkuMarku (1973) ... LP
Movie Play/BMG (Brazil), Mid 70s/1994. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Nice bit of funky samba stuff, with good arrangements that have a smooth electric feel, and some very cool production work that compresses the instruments and widens the vocals, for a sound that's funky and spooky, and with a good 70's groove to it. Marku's voice is warm and rich, with sort of a Jon Lucien sound, and the band has a good tight feel. Tracks include "Coisas De Minas", "Meu Samba Regue", "Canavia", and "Zumbanda".

✨✧ Lisa OnoEsperanca ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful piece of Brazilian jazz – one that has Japanese singer Lisa Ono working with some of Brazil's best instrumentalists, like Zeca Assumpcao, Cristovao Bastos, Paulo Moura, Danilo Caymmi, and even Tom Jobim! The set's at least as good as any of the recent bossa-revival sessions on the Lumiar label – but probably even better, as Lisa's lovely voice really sends us, and she's one of the best modern bossa singers we've ever heard! Titles include "Estrada Branca", "A Gafiera", "Samba De Enredo", "Um Beija Flor", and "Praia Nova". CD
