✨✧ Dorival CaymmiVoice & Guitar Of Brazil's Great Dorival Caymmi ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $23.99
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
(Sealed 60s pressing! Cover has a PROMO punch-out.)

Wanda de SahSoftly ... CD
Capitol/Rev-Ola (UK), 1965. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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
(Out of print.)

✨✧ Frank Sinatra & JobimFrancis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Capitol, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A beautiful little album that shows a whole new side of Sinatra! Frank's a bit late on the bossa game – but the record's a wonderfully gentle batch of bossa nova tunes, performed with musical and occasional vocal accompaniment by Jobim, and larger orchestral backings by Claus Ogerman. Far more than a gimmicky fake bossa album – this is a wonderful set of tracks that show that Sinatra could still hit a gentle ballad without going as over the top as he did on some of his other Reprise work. Jobim's talent is very respected – and the record is a true blending of musical styles, in a way that does justice to both artists equally. Titles include "Change Partners", "Dindi", "Meditation", "How Insensitive", and "I Concentrate On You". (Vocalists, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album

VariousUltra Lounge Volume 14 – Bossa Novaville ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... $3.99
A groovy set of loungey bossa tunes – pulled from 60s recordings on Capitol, Liberty, Pacific Jazz, and related labels. There's more than a few "authentic" bossa performers here, mixed with some others that pick up the groove nicely – working out their own west coast interpretation of the genre in a lively swinging way. There's a total of 18 tracks in all – and titles include "Mas Que Nada" by Rubin Mitchell, "Baia" by Bill Perkins, "So Danco Samba" by Wanda De Sah, "Triste" by Howard Roberts, "Amy's Theme" by Martin Denny, "Samba De Orfeu" by Ray Anthony, "Look Of Love" by Billy May, "Misirlou" by Laurindo Almeida & The Bossa Nova All Stars, "Witchcraft" by Joe Graves & The Diggers, and "Que Sabe Voce De Mim" by Walter Wanderley.

✨✧ VariousUltra Lounge Volume 17 – Bongoland ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... $5.99
18 exotic groovers from the glory days of the bachelor pad! The set's a well-chosen bunch of rare ones from the catalogs of labels like Capitol, Liberty, and United Artists – and the tunes are tied together with a Latiny theme, as you've probably already expected from the "bongo" in the title! Tracks include "Latin Fever" by Jack Costanzo, "Caravan" by Dick Hyman, "Balinese Bongos", "The Young Savages" by Martin Denny, "Moderna Muchacha" by Joe Loco, "Club Caballeros" by Laurindo Almeida, "Bernies Tune" by Al Caiola, "Dr No's Fantasy" by Elliott Fisher, "Taboo" by Leo Arnaud, and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise" by Terry Snyder.

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes & The New Brasil '77 ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through the mix – but the overall groove is polished 70s soul, with plenty of jazzy touches – similar to the modern soul generation coming up on labels like Capitol or Elektra at the time. The group delivers a landmark version of Stevie Wonder's "The Real Thing" – a killer stepper that's kept the album alive for years – and other tracks include "Why", "Love City", "Mozambique", "Love Me Tomorrow", "P-Ka-Boo", and "Peninsula". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout.)
