Jorge BenAcustico MTV Vol 2 – Banda Do Ze Pretinho ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2002. Used ... $11.99
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

Chico BuarqueAlmanaque ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1982. Used ... $9.99
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 ... $1.99
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 ... $11.99
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

Leny EversongLeny Eversong – Barclay Sessions ... CD
Barclay/Universal (France), 1958. Used ... $8.99
Beautiful pre-bossa work from singer Leny Eversong – a Brazilian singer working here on 2 rare French sessions! The work here features Leny singing in a highly expressive mode that's filled with emotion – yet which comes across with a surprisingly light touch overall, and which is recorded here with gentle backings from the orchestra of Paulinho, who also plays piano on the tunes alongside accordion from Chiquinho Do Acordeon and violin from Fafa De Lemos. And although Eversong's voice is full and rich, it's never overly flowery or filled with fake emotion – and instead has a graceful quality that dances beautifully along with the rhythms of the tunes. CD features 4 tracks from a 7" EP, and 8 more from a 10" LP – 12 titles that include "Pensando Em Ti", "Meu Protesto", "Jangada", "E Nadas Mais", "Amei Bastante", "Aguas De Saquerema", "Canta Brasil", "Regeneracao", and "Porque Vivemos Assim".

Gilberto GilRaca Humana ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1984. Used ... $3.99
Gilberto Gil gets a nice lean groove for the 80s – a mode that's a bit like the style Caetano Veloso was taking at the time – with maybe more of a unified band feel behind the singer, instead of a more ambitious set of charts! The approach really brings a focus on Gilberto's vocals, which have a nice sort of punch as they dig into the hooks on the tunes – a bit soulful in currents, but with some 80s electro modes going on too – but never in an overdone way, thanks to well-balanced production from Liminha – who was Gil's frequent musical partner at the time. Titles include "Vamos Fugir", "Feliz Por Um Triz", "Extra II", "Indigo Blue", and "Raca Humana". CD
