Jorge BenTabua De Esmeralda ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $29.99
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

Maria BethaniaAs Cancoes Que Voce Fez Pra Mim ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1993. Used ... $4.99
A set of compositions penned by Roberto and Erasmo Carlos – sung by Maria Bethania in a warmly personal setting! The style here gets away from any of the too-romantic qualities that can sometimes mar presentation of the Carlos' brothers work – and instead, Bethania uses her innate sense of power and drama to give these tunes a subtle edge they might not have in the hands of other singers. Backings are sometimes full, but also in a subtle way – using strings slightly to flesh out other instrumentation that's more prominent in the mix. Titles include "Olha", "Detalhes", "Voce Nao Sabe", "Emocoes", "Seu Corpo", "Fera Ferida", "Palavras", and "Costumes". CD

✨✧ Lo BorgesBhanda ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2007. Used ... $24.99
A gem of a record from Lo Borges – still one of the best Brazilian songwriters ever, with talents that are alive and well more than 30 years after his classic debut and famous 70s recordings with Milton Nascimento! As with other of Borges' recent albums, the style here is almost a distillation of the approach from older years – a slight simplification and refocused version of his loftier music ideas, but still with an undeniable depth. Borges sings, and plays piano and guitar at the head of the tight group on the record – and titles include "O Tempo E Esse", "Universo Paralelo", "Gira", "Segundas Moanas Intencoes", "Nossa Magica", "Carnival De Cor", "Trem Das Coisas", and "O Som Das Estrelas".

Wilson Das NevesSe Me Chamar O Sorte ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. Used ... $16.99
Beautiful work from Wilson Das Neves – as mature and poised as his image on the cover, but still filled with the depth and soul we remember from years back! The vocals have this raspy charm that definitely underscores Wilson's years on this planet – and the backings have this warmth and jazzy undercurrent that really works well with the sound of the tunes – a slight hint of sentiment, but never in a cloying way – just the perfect sort of balance to honor the talents and accomplishments of someone like Das Neves! Titles include "Trato", "Cara De Queixa", "Peao De Obra", "Limites", "Feito Siameses", "Mascara De Cera", "Se Me Chamar O Sorte", and "O Dono Da Razao". CD

Joao DonatoMillennium ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
This set from Universal mixes together tracks from Joao Donato's early bossa nova sides for Philips, plus his later album Lugar Comum from 1975. The bossa stuff is excellent – and there's not been good reissues of this material on the market for a long time. Titles from this era include "Sambou Sambou", "Rio", "Olhou Para Mim", "Silk Stop", "Caminho De Casa", and "Blue Changa". The work from Lugar Comum is electric and funky, with a choppy samba sound on many cuts. It's a bit jarring to hear these tracks in the midst of the bossa, but there's a lot of numbers that are worth the soundclash – including "E Menina", "Tudo Tem", "Lugar Comum", and Joao's great funky version of "Bananeira".
