Leny AndradeA Sensacao ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1961. Used ... $11.99
The debut album from Brazilian jazz singer Leny Andrade – a wonderful session that's equal part scatting vocals, samba jazz, and smoky ballads! Andrade was one of the few Brazilian singers to really get the sound of American jazz from the start – and works here in a style that has lots of traces of some of the Verve vocalists of the late 50s, but which also dances along with a strong component of Brazilian rhythm and instrumentation. Titles include the totally groovy "Sambop", plus "Un Amor Igual Ao Seu", "Nao Da Pe", "Aguas Paradas", "Filosofia", "Receita Para Esquecer", "Procurando Voce", and "Samba De Uma Nota So". CD

Daniela MercuryCarnaval Electronico ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 2004. Used ... $4.99
The most interesting album we've ever heard from Daniela Mercury – an "electric carnival", recorded with help from Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, Lenine, and a host of guest DJs! In keeping with the title, the music on the set is kind of a remix-styled version of the traditional carnaval grooves – done in a mode that takes the already highly-percussive grooves, and kicks them up even more with some added dancefloor production – all of which is a perfect foil for Daniela's soulfully chanted lyrics on the set. There's more than a few extremely nice groovers on the set – and titles include "Quero Voltar Pra Bahia", "Preto E Branco", "Charles Yle", "O Canto Da Rainha", "Amor De Carnaval", "Maimbe Danda", and "Quero Ver O Mundo Sambar".

✨✧ Martinho Da VilaMaravilha De Cenario ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Just about all the early and mid 70s work of Martinho Da Vila is excellent, but this album's especially tasty! Martinho seems to have picked up a bit of the funk that was in the samba sound of labelmates Antonio Carlos & Jocafi – and in a way, the record grooves along in a style that's very similar to their work from the time, but perhaps without such a strong funky beat. Titles include "Aquarela Brasileira", "Salve A Mulatada Brasileira", "Se Algum Dia", "Mare Mansa", and "Tempo De Menino". 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

Geraldo VandreEnciclopedia Musical Brasileira ... CD
WEA (Brazil), Mid 60s. Used ... $15.99
In the years before the emergence of MPB giants like Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, Geraldo Vandre was a huge talent that promised to break big – a young vibrant singer who pushed past the romantic stylings of other vocalists, a free thinker who embraced new styles but didn't succumb to the copycat rock of the "Jovem Guarda", and a new force in music who made it seem dangerous and exciting again. Most of his best work's been out of print since the years it came out, which is why we're super-pleased to have this set of 14 tracks from the mid 60s – featuring work that Vandre recorded for Continental, RGE, and BMG, work that we almost never see on vinyl. Titles include "Ladainha", "Vou Caminhando", "Asa Branca", "Disparada", "Hora De Lutar", "Despedida De Maria", "Dia Da Festa", and "Pra Nao Dizer Que Nao Falei Das Flores". CD

✨✧ Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 (US pressing) ... CD
Philips, 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(BMG Direct pressing.)
