Sergio MendesPele ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Sealed ... $4.99
Sergio Mendes' score to this film starring Pele from the height of his career. The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is nice and Braziliany, with some good electric moments. Pele sings vocals on one version of the title cut "My World Is A Ball", and Gerry Mulligan solos on another version of it. Cuts include "Big City", "Sadness of Goodbye", and "Na Bahia".

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 ... $22.99
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.

✨✧ Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
