✨✧ Brazilian OctopusBrazilian Octopus ... CD
Fermata/Som Livre (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible little record with a sound that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – a set that mixes jazzy inflections on vibes, organ, guitar, percussion, and flute – the last of which is played here by a young Hermeto Pascoal! The set was done after Pascoal's work in Quarteto Novo but before some of his more complicated jazz albums of the 70s – and it's got a style that mixes his own love of playful rhythms and complicated shadings with a lighter, freer approach to the music – one that's almost in line with some of the EMI/Odeon work of the time, but which comes off with a slightly different feel. The drums get quite funky at times, and the mix of instruments reminds us a fair bit of the legendary Aquarians album on Uni from the US – but with an influence that's more bossa-driven, in comparison to the Latin modes of that set. At times, there's a lightly dancing beauty to the record that's almost in soundtrack mode – but tunes are more focused overall, and clearly aware of their own instrumental power. Titles include "Gamboa", "Rhodosando", "Cancao Latina", "Summer Hill", "Pavane", "Chaye", "Gosto De Ser Como Sou", "Casa Forte", and "O Passaro". CD

Airto & The Gods Of JazzKiller Bees ... CD
MELT 2000 (UK), 1993. Used ... $6.99
The Gods of Jazz give plenty of help to Airto here – in a fair turn too, given that Airto graced some of their best records in the 70s! The percussionist works here as the leader, amidst other players who include Herbie Hancock on piano and keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Chick Corea on keyboards, Gary Meek on tenor and soprano sax, and Hiram Bullock on guitars – all sounding quite spare and spacey at certain points on the record – with a groove that's much more abstract than both their own usual work, and what you might expect from Airto. It's almost as if these heavyweights have decided to loosen things up a bit in the company of Airto – getting a bit more experimental with his percussion to drive them on. Flora Purim serves up a bit of vocals – and titles include "Be There", "Banana Jam", "Killer Bees", "City Sushi Man", "See Ya Later", "Nasty Moves", and "Communion". CD

Jorge BenBen E Samba Bom ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $18.99
Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that we never tire of! Every track's a winner, and the album glides effortlessly from number to number, grooving along with a stunning mix of instruments, vocals, and this incredible echoey production. Titles include "Vou De Samba Com Voce", "Guerreiro Do Rei", "Descalco No Parque", "Gabriela", "Saida Do Porto", "Bicho Do Mato", and "Zope Zope". CD

Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $6.99
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

Chico Buarque & Caetano VelosoMelhores Momentos De Chico & Caetano ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $8.99
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!
