Chico BuarqueChico Buarque (1989) ... CD
BMG/RCA, 1989. Used ... $6.99
Gently sophisticated work from Chico Buarque – a set of beautifully intimate tunes, recorded with a a care that's really great for the music! The backings are somewhat large, but quite spacious too – opened up in ways that allow for plenty of space for the vocals – sung by Chico in that warm, raspy tone we always love so much. There's a nice degree of acoustic guitar right upfront – played by Luiz Claudio Ramos – but in ways that are different than any sort of bossa use of the instrument – more to just underscore a nicely fragile quality in the singing. Titles include "Baticum", "Trapacas", "Uma Palavra", "Valsa Brasileira", "Tanta Saudade", and "A Mais Bonita". CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque Ao Vivo Paris – Le Zenith ... CD
BMG, 1990. Used ... $6.99
Live work by Chico Buarque – a surprisingly nice set overall, and a great demonstration of the way the energy of his live albums almost took over force from his studio sets at this point in his career! The double-length performance features some great musical direction from Cristovao Bastos – and mixes together some of Chico's more upbeat modes with other tunes that have a moodier feel, quite spare, dark, and somber – touching on a side of Chico that's not always heard in studio work from the time! Titles include "Vai Passar", "O Que Sera", "Joao E Maria", "Rio 42", "Todo O Sentimento", "Partido Alto", "Desalento", and "A Rita". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

✨✧ Joao BoscoJoao Bosco (1973) ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album from Joao Bosco – maybe his best! The record was one of his first – and it's a beautiful blend of his jazz-tinged folksy style with more spacious arrangements penned Luiz Eca and Tropicalia maestro Rogerio Duprat. Backing includes work by the great Tamba Trio – and the record has a very tight feel overall, with some wonderful jazzy flourishes that are missing from much of Bosco's other work. The whole thing's a gem – easily one of the greatest Brazilian reissues you'll buy this year – and it's filled with excellent tracks like "Nada A Desculpar", "Boi", "Bala Com Bala", "Quem Sera", "Quilombo", and "Tristeza De Uma Embolada".

✨✧ 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 ... $9.99
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
