✨✧ Joao DonatoBlue Bossa – The Collection Of Standards ... CD
King (Japan), 2015. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoShadow Of Your Smile (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Packaged in a totally cool 5" record cover, too – just like the original album! Includes original US obi.)
