Seu JorgeCru (US pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Wrasse, 2005. New Copy ... $3.99 16.98
The sound of global soul in the 21st Century – and an amazing set from the soon-to-be legendary Seu Jorge! Jorge's possibly best known for his appearances in films over the past few years – like The Life Aquatic or City Of God – but take it from us, he's one of the greatest living artists working in modern music – and has a sound, sense, and charm that will knock down barriers and boundaries all over the world! Unlike previous efforts, this album's incredibly spare – done in a style that often just features Jorge's vocals next to acoustic guitar, percussion, cavaquinho, and a bit of light keys. But that doesn't mean that the record's a sleeper – because it's got an incredibly full sound – an energy and excitement that pulses from the very first note, and which is carried off almost entirely by Seu Jorge himself! Even on the sparer, mellower tunes, the vocals have a power that's simply tremendous – transcendent of language, and reaching out in this really magical way. Titles include the sublime groover "Tive Razao", plus "Chatterton", "Mania De Peitao", "So Gonca", "Bem Querer", "Bola De Meia", and "Fiore De La Citta". Plus, the US pressing has 2 bonus remixes – "Mania De Peitao (jamais plus jamais mix)" and "Tive Razao (voltair mix)" – both quite nice, and not "dance" at all, but really just extrapolations of the original tunes!

✨✧ Jards MacaleSo Morto – Burning Night ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A crucial set of work from the overlooked Jards Macale – one of the hippest cats in Brazilian music during the 70s, heard here on one of his best early albums! The music here is really at the crossroads – a combination of the folksy edge of the 60s work of Geraldo Vandre, mixed with some of the trippier elements of the generation that would be best represented by Lula Cortes, all set free by some of the rich waves of energy that sprung from Brazil in the wake of the Tropicalia movement! Macale's got a way of really personalizing the tunes with both his vocals and guitar work – and the overall presentation moves from intimate to expansive with effortless ease. Titles include "Sem Essa", "So Morto", "O Crime", and "Solucos". CD also features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 10 more numbers that include "Gotham City", "Let's Play That", "Poema Da Rosa", "Revendo Amigos", "Orora Analfabeta", and "Rua Real Grandeza". CD

✨✧ VariousFar Out Presents Brazilian Bass – Inner City Tropical Soundblast ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very hip set that goes way beyond the stock bass-heavy grooves that have been showing up on other Brazilian compilations in recent years – and a package that really does a great job of reintroducing roots to contemporary urban music in Brazil! The album offers up a Brazilian take on the heavy sound of the bass – served up here in ways that echo famous modes in hip hop, reggae, and Afro Beat – but all with a uniquely Brazilian twist as well Tracks feature a range of contemporary artists who are taking grooves past the heavy, bombastic sound of the favelas – refining things a bit more up top, while still holding onto the powerful presence of the bottom – through a range of instrumentation that includes both acoustic and electric touches, and some key nods to older Brazilian styles as well! There's a sophistication here that goes way past any booty-shaking cliches – and, quite frankly, beyond the cover art too! Titles include "Olhe O Fogo" by Os Nelsons, "Pequi Week Bar" by Sistema Criolina, "Caroco" by Nsista, "Eu Acho E Pouco" by Soraia Drummond, "Travessias" by Anton Dub, "Nao Deixe De Lutar" by Junior Dread, and "Te Amarrado (Mangaio rmx)" by O Quadro.
