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".

Joao DonatoMillennium ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
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".
