Astrud GilbertoShadow Of Your Smile (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1965. Used ... $19.99
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that bring out an emotional side of Astrud that you don't always get on other LPs. The track list is excellent, and includes some of her best tracks for Verve, like "Non Stop To Brazil", "Fly Me To The Moon", "O Ganso", and "Aruanda". Not to be passed up, and one that we never tire of listening to! CD
(Out of print. Includes obi!)

✨✧ Orequestra Los DanserosLos Danseros En Bolero ... CD
Equipe/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record we'd love to know more about – because the sound and presentation is so amazing! The set brings a bossa vibe to a mixture of American jazz and soundtrack tunes – often folding two tracks into one performance, and couching the melodies in some fuller strings and lighter, lively rhythms – with a quality that almost feels a bit like Henry Mancini taking on bossa nova material – or maybe like some of the fuller arrangements done by the young Deodato at the time! No surprise, there's some great Mancini numbers in the mix – along with other cool tunes too – served up with instrumentation that often has some rootsier percussion on the bottom, which blends in a great way with the larger charts – on titles that include "So In Love/Echo Of Love", "Sally's Tomato/Teach Me Tonight", "Mr Lucky/Speak Low", "Just For Tonight/Moon River", "Dansero/The Misfits", "Oba La La/La Puerta", and "Fly Me To The Moon/Our Day Will Come".

✨✧ Joao DonatoBlue Bossa – The Collection Of Standards ... CD
King (Japan), 2015. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful double-length set from this bossa piano legend – and a set that doesn't just feature the familiar standards promised in the title, but includes a number of bossa classics too! Joao's piano is right out front in the mix – working in a jazzy quartet that also includes really nice flute and alto from Ricardo Pontes, who glides around the piano lines in this beautifully chromatic way – plus bass from Luis Alvez and drums and percussion from Robertinho Silva – both rhythm players who really find a great way to live up to Joao's legendary mix of sound and space! With 2CDs, the set's got plenty to offer – and titles include "Smile", "Besame Mucho", "How High The Moon", "Blue Bossa", "Wave", "Vento No Carnaval", "So Danco Samba", "No Coreto", "All Of Me", "A Paz", and lots more.

✨✧ Walter WanderleyMoondreams ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian bossa modes with some of the sunnier 60s touches of the A&M scene – all wrapped together with impeccable arrangements both from Deodato and Wanderley himself. The record mixes a bit of strings with a sweet chorus of flutes and just a bit of trumpet – all undercut by some snapping rhythms that include a bit of percussion from Airto, plus occasional chorus vocals sung by Flora Purim and Stella Stevens! The mix of players, modes and sounds here is really wonderful – and makes for a unique album that propels the older 60s bossa sound firmly towards the more sophisticated modes of the 70s – all at a level that Wanderley never hit again in the studio! Titles include great versions of Marcos Valle's "Proton, Electron, Neutron", Egberto Gismonti's "O Sonho (Moondreams)", Luiz Gonzaga's "Asa Branca", and Young-Holt Unlimited's classic "Soulful Strut" – plus "Penha", "L'Amore Dice Ciao", "5:30 Plane", and "Mirror Of Love".
