Paulinho Da ViolaEu Canto Samba ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
Slight hints of gray mark the hair of Paulinho Da Viola on the cover – and they also underlie the maturity in the music that makes this set so great! Paulinho first gave us some excellent samba sounds in the 70s – but at the end of the following decade, he's still a master of care and understatement – working with mostly acoustic instrumentation, at a level that really sets him apart for the time – but also using some jazzy piano lines that really bring a nice dimension to his music! As in the old days, the whole album is beautifully put together – not a single element out of place, or overdone – on titles that include "Um Caso Perdido", "Com Lealdade", "Cantoria", "Fulaninha", "Pintou Um Bode", and "No Carnaval Da Paixo".

✨✧ Rosinha De ValencaUm Violao Em Primeiro Plano ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier Brazilian guitarists like Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa – and on this set, she's backed by some light arrangements that almost have a groovy late 60s LA feel – with lots of nice lilting A&M-ish moments, touched by other spots of Brazilian grooves and funk! The blend is wonderful, and makes the record a real standout from Rosinha – a record that's more than enough to help her make her mark away from Sergio! Titles include "Asa Branca", "Summertime", "Samba De Minha Terra", "Tema Espanhol", "Boi Ta Ta", "Marinheiro", "Zanzibar", and "Mudei De idea". CD
