AzymuthTelecommunication ... CD
Milestone, 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent American release from the brilliant Brazilian fusion outfit Azymuth. While occasionally they managed to get a bit complicated in their arrangements, the songs and groove never suffered for it, and the crisp modern production complements their tight sound nicely, with warm key washes and percolating rhythms throughout. The ten minute "Last Summer In Rio" is a huge stepper's number here in Chicago, with it's sly Rhodes hook, and we've been waiting for forward looking numbers like "The House I Lived In", "What Price Samba" or "May I Have This Dance" to show up on a Gilles Peterson mix CD for years.

Jorge BenAcustico MTV Vol 2 – Banda Do Ze Pretinho ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2002. Used ... $15.99
A tight little live set from Jorge Ben – recorded for MTV, but easily as great as any of his other live recordings in Brazil. The group's tight and warm, with a really soulful feel and a bouncing groove that returns Jorge's sound to earlier years. Tracks include a number of classic numbers redone in ways that really open them up – and Jorge's extremely charming in this intimate setting, showing he hasn't lost his edge at all! Titles include "Taj Mahal", "Filho Maravilha", "Pais Tropical", "Que Pena", "Que Maravilha", "Mas Que Nada", "Chove Chuva", and "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas". CD

Carlinhos BrownBahia Do Mundo – Mito E Verdade ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2001. Used ... $2.99
Great work from the always compelling Carlinhos Brown – working here on a wide-ranging set of tracks that harness an equally compelling range of influences. Brown produced and arranged the album himself, and the record's one of his most sophisticated to date – running from rootsy tracks with a heavy groove, to mellower ones that feature complicated backings behind Brown's smooth vocals. Despite all these shifts, though, the record's got a surprisingly unified sound – proof again of Brown's strength as an artist. Titles include "Cavalo Da Simpatia", "Shalom", "Mil Veroes", "Lagoinha", "Mess In The Freeway", "Crendice", "Horario De Verao", and "Vai Rolar". CD

Chico BuarqueAlmanaque ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1982. Used ... $14.99
The kind of record that kept Chico Buarque going strong well into his later years – a beautifully-penned, beautifully-sung album filled with subtle graces and charms! The style here is vaguely samba-oriented, but as with most of Chico's other work, it's delivered in a mode that defies simple genre distinctions – that true blend of modes that Buarque virtually introduced in the early years of MPB, and which he could still pull off better than anyone else. The album's wonderfully free of gimmicks, and has a depth that really rewards repeated listenings – and backings are by a host of top-shelf musicians who include Toquinho, Toninho Horta, Cristovao Bastos, Mauro Senise, Robertinho Silva, Djalma Correa, and Marcio Montarroyos. Arrangements are mostly by Francis Hime, who also plays on the record – but Dori Caymmi and Edu Lobo also contribute arrangements too. Titles include "As Vitrines", "Almanaque", "Tanto Amar", "Angelica", "Moto Continuo", "Ela e Dancarina", and "O Meu Guri". CD

Chico Buarque & Caetano VelosoMelhores Momentos De Chico & Caetano ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $6.99
A live recording from 1986 – featuring Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso performing with an assortment of famous guests that includes Astor Piazzolla, Rita Lee, Jorge Ben, Elza Soares and Casuza. Some of the guests get a full track to themselves – without Caetano or Chico joining in – but the overall quality of the set unifies the different performances nicely. The tracks include "Festa Imodesta", "Adios Nonino", "Aguas De Marco", "Luz Negra","Merda", and Veloso does a version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" that's worth the price of the record alone!

Conjunto A Voz Do MorroOs Sambistas ... CD
RGE (Brazil), 1966. Used ... $18.99
An incredible samba combo from the 60s – and one that features work by Elton Medeiros, Ze Keti, Jair Do Cavaquinho, and a young Paulinho Da Viola! The sound here is hard and rootsy – with lots of heavy percussion on the bottom, playful acoustic guitar and cavaquinho, and warmly crackling vocals from the members of the group – often singing together in unison with a really powerful feel! Tracks are short and tight – and titles include "Meu Barracao De Zinco", "Sinha Nao Disse", "Cuidado", "400 Anos De Favela", "Noite Linda", and "Aventureira". CD

Moreira Da SilvaSerie Raizes Do Samba ... CD
EMI (Brazil), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $14.99
A lively batch of classic samba work from the late 50s and early 60s – done with lots of playful arrangements and odd instrumental touches to match the unique vocals of Moreira Da Silva!
