Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 15.98
Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". CD

Daniel SantiagoMetropole ... CD
Adventure Music, 2009. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
A jazz album at heart, but one with some distinct Brazilian touches too – a warm blend of the guitar lines of Daniel Santiago with reeds from Josue Lopez and piano from Vitor Goncalves – all wrapped up in a set of rich flowing rhythms! There's some of the sensitivity here that you might have heard on the best indie Brazilian jazz sides from the 80s – some of those smaller label sets we always dug so much – and the guitar and sax (either tenor or soprano, depending on the track) have a great way of dancing around each other – creating some magical interplay over the piano, bass, and drums. Titles include "Gregorian Samba", "Old City", "In The Rain", "Letter To The World", "Children Of The War", "Lagoon", and "Angola's Dance". CD

✨✧ VariousDesconstrucao – A Portrait Of Sao Paulo's Musical Scene ... LP
Goma Gringa (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of contemporary underground sounds from Brazil – not the kind of bigger pop that usually filters over here from the world music market – but instead a range of really well-chosen tracks that beautifully illustrate a new wave of creativity in the city of Sao Paulo! Despite the violence of the cover image, the music is mostly very intimate and personal – well-crafted songs that draw on earlier legacies of Brazilian music – with strands of samba, bossa, forro, and more – plus a good dose of the more experimental recent generation – all mixed together with a great deal of care, and a sense of songwriting that transcends the boundaries of language! Some of these cuts feel as if they could be from rare indie sides from the 70s, others bear a much more contemporary spirit – and together, they go a long way towards changing anyone's idea of what might be going on in 21st Century Sao Paulo. Titles include "Pena Mais Que Perfeita" by Jucara Marcal, "Obatala" by Meta Meta, "Space Charanga Abdu" by Thiago Franca, "Abraco De Ozu" by Rodrigo Campos, "Karina" by Vincente Barreto, "Na Multidao" by Thiago Franco, "Os Olhos Dela" by Rodrigo Campos, and "Oranian" by Meta Meta.

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".
