✨✧ Sergio MendesBrasil '65 – Introducing The Voice Of Wanda De Sah ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original rainbow label pressing. Cover has splitting seams held with tape.)

Agnaldo TimoteoSongs By Brazil's Internationally Famous Agnaldo Timoteo ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
Brazilian pop from the mid 60s – not samba, not bossa, but mostly ballads and romantic numbers, recorded with arrangements that sound surprisingly like work of the same type from the US. Titles include "Cartas De Amor", "Nao", "Eu Sou Aquele", "Quem Sera", "Eu Te Amo Tu Me Amas", and "Longe De Voce". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio SextetCannonball's Bossa Nova ... CD
Capitol/Riverside, 1962. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Wanda de SahSoftly ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, percussion, and even a bit of whistling on a few tracks! The vibe's very much in the best Verve/Impulse takes on the bossa – done with a clear California influence, which keeps things cool and breezy – and which also pushes Almeida past his sometimes-staid style on guitar. Two cuts also feature some great vocals by Irene Kral – and titles include "Twilight In Rio", "Old Guitaron", "Sarah's Samba", "Izabella", "Winter Moon", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Choro For People In Love".

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 ... CD
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) CD

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '65In Person At El Matador ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No, we didn't get the name of the group wrong – this "Brasil '65" album is a live one by Sergio Mendes, recorded with Wanda De Sah and Rosinha De Valenca, in the years before he formed the "Brasil '66" group that recorded on A&M – but issued afterward by Atlantic, and given the "Brasil '65" tag in hopes of cashing in on the A&M records' popularity. Forget about all of that stuff, though, because the record's a nice batch of bossa jazz tracks – and it features some instrumentals with Sergio and a tight group, plus a few vocal tracks by the ladies. The set's got a nice groove, and is much more like Sergio's earlier bossa stuff that was on Capitol in the US, and Philips in Brazil. Tracks include "Tem Do De Mim", "Noa Noa", "Caminho De Casa", and "Arrastao". Hard to find in the original, and nice to have on reissue! CD

✨✧ Wanda SaVagamente (Japanese pressing) ... CD
RGE/Bomba (Japan), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning early bossa session by Wanda Sa – the singer who recorded for Capitol in the US under the name Wanda De Sah – but who sounds even better here in her native Brazil! Roberto Menescal put the session together, and it's filled with all of the inventive twists and turns of his own 60s work on Elenco – bits of organ, piano, flute, and percussion all sliding around magically underneath the vocals – played by a variety of groups led by Menescal, Tenorio Jr, Luiz Carlos Vinhas, and Deodato! But even more than the instrumentation, Wanda's vocals are really the star of the set – a bit breathy and nicely restrained – almost like Nara Leao in her youth, and perfectly recorded in the best RGE tradition! Titles include "Adriana", "Tristeza De Nos Dois", "Vagamente", "Vivo Sonhando", "Encontro", "Inutil Paisagem", and "E Vem O Sol". CD
