Wanda de SahSoftly ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days! The album's got a wonderfully laidback feel – languid, yet jazzy, with the feel of some of Astrud Gilberto's best work on Verve, yet with vocals that are possibly better – thanks to Wanda's pedigree in Brazilian pop. Recordings were done in California, not Rio – and arrangements are handled by the great Jack Marshall – who's got a strong ear for keeping things interesting with a mix of strings, Latin rhythms, and Capitol pop shadings. Titles include "Aqua De Beber", "Ho Ba La La", "Sweet Happy Life", "The Dreamer", and a great version of "Aruanda". CD
Also available Softly ... LP

✨✧ Dorival CaymmiVoice & Guitar Of Brazil's Great Dorival Caymmi ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very nice album of tracks from this legendary Brazilian singer/songwriter – and one that has some great larger orchestrations, which gives the cuts an almost bossa-like sound. The record claims to have been recorded in Brazil, but it also says "produced for the USA by Dave Dexter", who was one of Capitol's big wigs in LA. We don't know if that means that the lively arrangements were added later – but who cares, as long as there's nice songs like "Rosa Morena", "Acontece Que Eu Sou Baiano", "O Dengo Que A Nega Tem", and "O Que E Que A Baiana Tem". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a PROMO punch-out.)
