✨✧ Maria BethaniaAs Cancoes Que Voce Fez Pra Mim ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1993. Used ... $8.99
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

Joao DonatoLugar Comum ... CD
Universal/Dubas (Brazil), 1975. Used ... $13.99
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots of great Brazilian bits mixed up with funk and jazz touches – including a range of great keyboards handled by Donato himself! Drums are by the mighty Wilson Das Neves – who brings in some breaks at a few points – and the whole thing's supremely soulful too – with titles that include the funky classic "Bananeira", plus "Patumbalacunde", "Lugar Comum", "Tudo Tem", and "Naturalmente".

Jorge BenReactivus Amor Est (Turba Philosophorum) ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The return of a legend – and one of the best new recordings we've heard from Jorge Ben in years! The set's got a funky soulful sound that owes a lot to his best 70s work, but which is updated a bit with some 21st century production touches – not too much, though, so that it comes out sounding weak or fake – just enough to update the vocals and guitar work a bit, in just the right ways. Titles include "Mexe Mexe", "Maria Helena E Chiquinho", "Funk Astrid", "Ze Blueman", "O Rei E Rosa Cruz", and "Sao E Salvos". CD
