Gal CostaGal Costa Canta Tom Jobim – Ao Vivo ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1999. Used 2CDs ... $14.99
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

MaysaMaysa (1966) ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1966. Used ... $11.99
A pretty great record by this Brazilian singer from the 60s! The album's got some fairly dramatic material – as was Maysa's wont – and it features sophisticated arrangements by Erlon Chaves that mix a post-bossa sound with styles that were being used by some of Europe's bigger singers at the time. Includes an incredibly haunting version of "Canto De Osshana", plus "Fantasia De Cellos/Primavera", "Fantasia De Trombones/Demais", "Canto Livre", "Tristeza", and "Morrer De Amor". Also features an English version of "Just In Time" and a French version of "Ne me Quitte Pas". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – "Palavras Palavras" and "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life". CD

Lovely live work from the great Gal Costa – recorded for MTV in Brazil, and a perfect presentation of their "unplugged" format!

✨✧ Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
