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.

✨✧ Walter WanderleyWalter Wanderley's Brazilian Organ ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
US issue of an early Brazilian set by Walter Wanderley – genius work, and rare too! This sparkling set features the organist at his best, crafting tight little bossa and samba tunes with care, using that streamlined organ sound that he virtually pioneered at the time, and which works so wonderfully with the album's short jazzy arrangements. The set's got all the charm of his best work, with the added presence of a bit of piano or chorus vocals on a few tracks. Titles include "Labareda", "Volto Ja", "Eu E O Rio", "A Mesma Rosa Amarela", "Corcovado", "So Vou De Mulher", and "Poema Da Vida". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio SextetCannonball's Bossa Nova ... CD
Capitol/Riverside, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. It's here now, though, and the record's a real treat – especially at this price! Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". Plus, the CD also features bonus single versions of "Corcovado" and "Clouds"! (Jazz, Brazil) CD

Wilson SimonalMeus Momentos ... CD
EMI (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
Killer stuff by an artist who dominated Brazil's pop charts in the late 60s with his brilliant soulful recordings! Wilson Simonal had a deep rich voice, and the arrangements on his classic EMI/Odeon recordings have a similar feel to some of the soul music released on Capitol in the US during the same time – but with the obvious Brazilian touches, of course. Most of Wilson's best work has been out of print for years, but this great set brings together 19 killer tracks, with many classics like "Sa Marina", "Pata Pata", "A Banda", "Zazueira", "Lagrima Flor", "Pais Tropical", "Balanco Zona Sul", "Mustang Cor De Sangue", and "Tributo A Martin Luther King".

✨✧ Raul De SouzaColors ... LP
Milestone, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet blend of west coast jazz and Brazilian rhythms – and one of our favorite records ever from trombonist Raul De Souza! The session's got a more soulful, jazzy feel than some of Raul's other dates from the 70s – not nearly as tight as his sets for Capitol, with an earthy undercurrent in the music, thanks to the production efforts of Airto, who spearheads the session. Horns are by JJ Johnson, with some slight echoes of his soul soundtrack work of the period – and other players include Ted Lo on keyboards, Richard Davis on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – plus a bit of guest alto sax from Cannonball Adderley on a few tunes. Titles include "Water Buffalo", "Dr Honoris Causa", "Canto De Ossahna", "Nana", "Festival", and "Chants To Burn". (Jazz, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album
