Ze RamalhoZe Ramalho De Paraiba ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Vintage live work from this legendary Brazilian rocker – a series of different concerts, all brought together in a very cool 2CD package! The set features material from the shows Atlantida (1973), Um Dia Antes Da Vida (1976), Tres Aboios Diferentes (1974), and Coletiva De Musica Paraibana (1976) – plus one more track from a 1977 show – all with Ze Ramalho on vocals and guitar, working in relatively stripped-down settings with deeply personal inflections! The collection's a great contrast to some of his more produced studio albums – and titles include "O Monte Olimpia", "Avohai", "A Arvore", "Puxa Puxa", "Brejo Do Cruz", "Jacarepagua Blues", "Taxi Lunar", and "Aboio Eletronico".

Tom ZeEstudando O Samba (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Incredible! This is one of Tom Ze's best albums ever – and it's monsterously hard to find. The record is a fantastic blend of post-Tropicalia styles – and it features some strange arrangements that perfectly illustrated Ze's insane approach to songwriting. As with much of Ze's music, the actual sound is incredibly hard to describe – and the album bristles with imagination and creative fire. Includes a haunting spare version of "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui!", "Hein?", and "Mae". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom ZeReturn Of Tom Ze – Hips Of Tradition – Brazil Classics 5 ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1992. Used ... $1.99
A great return for the legendary Tom Ze – an artist who'd been brought back to prominence via the efforts of a Luaka Bop compilation – then given this great chance to record for the label on his own! The set's a great return to form for Ze – who sprung from this moment into a renewed period of creative energy – really drawing on his crucial years of groundbreaking sounds in Brazil during the Tropicalia generation, and especially the 70s – when Tom had really moved off into a realm of his own. Most tracks are relatively short, and pretty enigmatic – a flurry of the sounds and verbal experiments that always made Ze so great! Titles include "Jingle Do Disco", "Cortina 3", "Amar", "Ogodo, Ano 2000", "Feira De Santana", "Fliperama", and "Tatuaramba". CD

Crazy stuff! This is the record with the famous cover of a marble balanced on an asshole (!) – and it further refines Tom Ze's distinctive approach to songwriting with an over the top approach that moves far beyond the experimentation of Tropicalia! The record is incredible, with a mix of amazing songs that piece together hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil. Includes the tracks "Complexo De Epico", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Dodo E Zeze", "Brigitte Bardot", and "O Riso E A Faca". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom ZeTom Ze (1970) ... LP
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
One of Tom Ze's greatest records – and an album that proves that the Tropicalista spirit didn't die once Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil went into exile! The cover is a bit standard, in comparison to the artier look of other Tom Ze albums – but the sound is very forward-thinking, and still hangs onto the best modes of the Tropicalia years – a fantastic blend of Ze's spare soulful songwriting, psychedelic influences, and traces of older baroque production in the mix. Many moments remind us of our favorite albums by the Veloso, Gil, or Gal Costa from 1968 and 1969 – and the album's got some killer songs like "Qualquer Bobagem", "Escolinha Da Robot", "La Vem A Onda", "Distancia", and "Me Da Me De Me Diz".

✨✧ Tom ZeCancoes Eroticas De Ninar ... CD
Circus (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
From the eyeball on the cover, right down to the sounds on the disc, Tom Ze once again blurs the boundaries between body and mind with his music – by giving us tunes that are playful and catchy, but also filled with madness and intelligence too! Ze's wit is as razor-sharp as ever, carried across here with instrumentation that's very much in the best modes of his later years – almost familiar, but always offbeat – as if Tom's turning Brazilian songforms inside out, in service of his lyrical wordplay. The album's definitely got some of the erotic bent hinted at in the title, but also has a lot more going on too – on titles that include "Por Baixo", "Arroz Lenda E Buque", "Descaracao Familiar", "Sexo", "Sobe Ni Mim", "Urgenica Didatica", and "Cade Mane".

One of the grooviest tunes ever from Tom Ze – an artist you may know best for his more offbeat work of the 70s, but who gets nice and funky here on "Jimmy Rende Se" – yet at a level that keeps all his vocal complexity intact! The flipside features Jorge Ben's classic "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" – one of the singer's first great funky soul tunes, and a cut that definitely woke up the world to a whole new side of his talents! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime meeting of these four legendary Brazilian talents – singers and musicians we're not used to hearing in each others' company, but who feel here as if they've been working together for a lifetime! The approach is beautiful – as each singer also plays a bit of acoustic guitar – in a setting that has shifting voices and guitar parts cascading through a wonderful array of tunes – sometimes in ways that create very resonant harmonies, sometimes with a more isolated feel that's more in a classic bossa mode. There's a warmth and spontaneity to the music that really comes through – this is no staid meeting of top talents – and the whole thing's better than we even might have expected, and maybe even better than most recent albums by some of these artists too. Titles include "Favela", "Nega Dina", "Picotado", "Toada", "Voce Voce", "Sinha Sinho", "O Mais Que Perfeito", "Vapor Barato", "Catavento E Girassol", and "Cachaca Arvore E Bandeira". 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

Jorge BenEra Uma Vez A Banda Do Ze Pretinho – 1978 to 1981 (A Banda do Ze Pretinho/Salve Simpatia/Alo Alo Como Vai/Bem Vinda Amizade) (4CD set) ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99
Four albums from the second chapter in the career of Jorge Ben – packaged here in a single set, with a few bonus tracks too! First up is A Banda Do Ze Preinho – a record that's funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds onto the best energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". Salve Simpatia is late 70s funky soul from Jorge Ben – a record that tightens up the sound a bit from his earlier years on Philips – but still keeps in all the core elements we love so much! The tracks bounce along with a tight samba soul approach that's built very much on Jorge's earlier experiments – handled with a bit more modern soul on the arrangements, but in a way that only makes the grooves come across more directly – in a style that's akin to some other Brazilian artists who were shifting more soul towards soul from other styles at the time – such as Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries. Titles include "Salve Simpatia", "Ive Brussel", "Waldomiro Pena", "Adelita", "Occulatus Abis", and "Menina Crioula". Alo Alo Como Vai has Jorge working in a smoother vein than on his Philips sides, with the same sort of modern soul approach that Marcos Valle and other older Brazilian singers were using at the time. But since Jorge's always been a soulster from the start, the style works perfectly for his warm vocals and his keen talent for putting over a groove. Arrangements have kind of a brassy funky samba groove – and titles include "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae", "Solitario Surfista", "Olha A Pipa", "Cae Cae Caetano", "Alo Alo, Como Vai?", and "A Cegohna Me Deixou Em Mardureira". Bem Vinda Amizade is an 80s groover with a sound that's a bit of a change from his 70s classics! The backings show Ben picking up some modern soul elements from the US scene of the time – but these are also mixed with some rougher, rhythmic styles that are definitely Brazilian – which makes for a really compelling blend – quite similar to the samba and soul mix of Jorge's 70s records, but tuned towards the ears of a different generation overall. Bits of boogie mix in to the groove nicely – and titles include "Katarina Katarina", "Para Que Digladiar", "Santa Clara Clareou", "O Diam Em Que O Sol Declarou O Seu Amor Pela Terra", "Lorraine", and "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro". CD set features 3 bonus tracks – "Natal Brasileiro", "Waimea 55,000", and "Saci Perere". CD

Panton/GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Searing sounds from one of the coolest ensembles working on the Czech scene of the 70s – a group who mix big band modes with sweet electric touches – in a style that's like some of the hipper acts on the MPS label at the time! The approach is very much like a Clark Boland Big Band sound, but with more keyboards – as the group features lots of Fender Rhodes from Karel Ruzicka, plus some electric guitar and bass – alongside strong solos from Laco Deczi and Vaclav Tyfa on trumpets, Svatopluk Kosvanec on trombone, Petr Kral on tenor and soprano sax, and Frantisek Kryka on baritone! The sound is sometimes a bit funky, but mostly more concerned with the flowing colors and tones of the group – a beautiful mix that really comes through strongly, on titles that include "Stare Koreni", "Mhlavo Destivo", "Vychod Slunce", "Tuturilla", and "Ogarske Hry". CD features three unreleased bonus tracks – "Chutovka", "Zlato Pro Tenistu", and "Rytmus Velkomesta". CD

One of the strangest covers in the Ze Records catalog – and that's coming from a label that did plenty of weird covers! Aural Exciters take the original "My Boy Lollipop" and transform the tune with a throbbing punky kind of groove – while still preserving the sing-song lyrics of the catchy original. "Paradise" is another weird one – almost an oldies-styled number, with a catchy chorus to boot! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ze, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great single from Aural Exciters – a hip New York ensemble from the late 70s, one of the seminal groups of the downtown post-disco crossover scene! The tracks feature work by August Darnell, James Chance, Bob Blank, Taana Gardner, and Coati Mundi – and is very much in the playful ensemble dancefloor mode of some of Darnell's other projects from the time – a bit more soulful than Kid Creole, with less of the quirky disco of other groups, and a very solid approach overall! "Spooks In Space" has a great chanting vocal quality, undercut nicely by a stepping space-bound bassline – and "Marathon Runner" is more standard club, but in a way that features some great vocals from Gardner! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kid Creole & The CoconutsOff The Coast Of Me ... LP
Antilles/Ze, 1980. Near Mint- ... $8.99
After a few years knocking around in the New York club scene – doing successful work with Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, Machine, and other groups – August Darnell burst forth as Kid Creole, a unique musical persona that was a conglomeration of many styles, from disco to new wave to Carribean to art deco. Darnell's "Nouveau Wave" recordings from the time were extremely fresh – and a good way to borrow the campiness that was plaguing the disco scene and filter it through a hipper postmodern sense of humor. This first album wasn't his biggest in terms of dancefloor hits – but it did start a pretty good run, and really put the Ze label on the map for a few years. Titles include "Maladie D'Amour", "Yolanda", "Coast Of me", "Darrio", and "Bogota Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

Cool quirky post-punk work from The Waitresses – a group who maybe were never as big as Blondie or Romeo Void, but shared a very similar space at the time! This album's best known for the classic "I Know What Boys Want" – a naughty little number that got plenty of dancefloor and radio play back in the day – but the whole album's an equally enjoyable romp, with lots of jagged guitars, sharp-edged rhythms, and cool snot-nosed vocals from Patty Donahue! Mars Williams blows some mighty reeds in the group – and titles include "I Know What Boys Want", "Wise Up", "It's My Car", "No Guilt", "Heat Night", and "Go On". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks mix early 80s New York club styles with Darnell's mad retro/exotic take on the world – coming out with a sound that's slightly hokey, but equally catchy! Includes the hits "Annie (I'm Not Your Daddy)", "I'm A Wonderful Thing Baby", and "Stool Pigeon" – plus the cuts "Imitation", "I'm Corrupt", "No Fish Today", and "Loving You Made A Fool Out Of Me".

Aksak MaboulUn Peu De L'Ame Des Bandits ... LP
Crammed (Belgium), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... On November 10, 2017
One of our favorite mixing of modes from the old school – a tremendous second album from the legendary Aksak Maboul! The record mixes arty playfulness with some rootsier elements – bits of Eastern instrumentation, jazz, improvisation, and even some post-punk elements – all in a way that makes for one of the most creative recordings of its time – a set that easily provides key inspiration for more recent genre-crossing acts like this! There's a bit of Y or Ze Records whimsy at times – but the end result is much deeper, and much more compelling– as you'd expect from a group that features Fred Frith on guitar, Chris Cutler on drums, Marc Hollander and Michel Berkmans on reeds, and Denis Van Hecke on a range of cool cellos! Each tune has a slightly different flavor, but there's still a really unified feel to the record too – one of those European projects that comes together like nothing you'd hear from the US. Titles include "Geistige Nacht", "A Modern Lesson", "Palmiers En Pots", "Inoculating Rabies", "Cinema", and "Bosses De Crosses". LP, Vinyl record album

A few tunes have famous stars stepping in for a bit of vocals – including Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Jussara Silveira, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – but to us, Batatinha's really the star of the set! Titles inlcude "Depois Eu Volto", "Bebe Diferente", "Ministro Do Samba", "Ironia", "Bolero", "Imitacao", and "Ze De Loca". CD

Chico Buarque & OthersChico Buarque Songbook Vol 1 ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1999. Used ... $6.99
An amazing tribute to the great work of Chico Buarque! Chico's an artist who's had by far the most wide-ranging effect of any of Brazil's MPB giants – and his rich history of songwriting spans the bossa years, through the Tropicalia era, right up into the modern age. This whopping 8 volume series in Lumiar's Songbook pays an incredible tribute to Chico's rich volumes of work – and it features some of Brazil's greatest artists interpreting his songs. Unlike other Lumiar volumes in this style, Chico doesn't seem to appear on all the discs – and instead the focus is mostly on his work as a writer. This first volume includes the tracks "Olhos Nos Olhos" by Nana Caymmi, "Apesar De Voce" by Beth Caravalho, "Joana Francesa" by Miucha, "Leve" by Carol Saboya e O Trio, "Basta Um Dia" by Ze Renaldo e Jaques Morelenbaum, "Assentamento" by Edu Lobo, and "Morro Dois Irmaos" by MPB-4. 14 tracks in all!

Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A stunner of a record – the first-ever album by The JBs, never issued back in the day – and lost for years until it recently resurfaced on a test pressing! The set features a leaner, more stripped-down version of the group – one that features Bootsy Collins on bass, and which doesn't rely as much on the horns as it does some very upfront playing by the rhythm section – who really set fire to the extended instrumental solos on the album's very long tracks! Group members include Robert McCullough on tenor, St Clair Pickney on flute and baritone, Bobby Byrd on piano, Catfish Collins on guitar, and James Brown himself on organ – and the mighty Clyde Stubblefield handles drums, as well as Frank Kash Waddy. All tracks are very long – quite different than the shorter single-type cuts on Pass The Peas – and the record features the first recording of "The Grunt", plus the long jams "I'll Ze", "These Are The JBs (parts 1 & 2)", and "When You Feel It Grunt If You Can".

Titles include "Maladie D'Amour", "Yolanda", "Coast Of me", "Darrio", and "Bogota Affair". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "There But For The Grace Of God Go I (12" mix)", "He's Not Such A Bad Guy (12" mix)", "Darrio (12" disco)", "Yolanda (12" mix)", and "Maladie D'Amour (mutant disco version)".

MiltinhoEu Miltinho ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a way, this album is kind of a turning point in Miltinho's career – as he makes the shift towards some of the bossa-inspired styles he'd pick up more strongly in later years. The arrangements are by Ruben Perez and Nelsinho – and they're as timelesss and breezily beautiful as ever! Title include "Caminho Perdido", "Samba Do Crioulo", "E Amanha", "Samba Sem Pim Pom", "Ze De Conceicao", "Serenata Da Chuva", "Faco Um Lelele", and "Cancao De Amor". CD

Marconi NotaroNo Sub Reino Dos Metazoarios (deluxe gatefold paper sleeve) ... CD
Time Lag Records, 1973. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
Folksy psychedelia from early 70s Brazil – a wonderful little album by poet/singer Marconi Notaro, done in collaboration with the team of Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho, with a feel that's similar to their own classic Paebiru! The feel here is quite loose at times – almost improvised percussion and guitar bits jangling together – but a few other numbers get more rock-based and electric, making for weird shifts in mood that continue to keep the record on edge. Everything's quite trippy overall, and made even more so by the production techniques – which are simple, but really effectively used to abstract out some of the best elements. Titles include "Anthropologic", "Ode To Satwa", "Symphony In RE", "I Have No Imagination To Trade Wives", "Oh Greedy Life", and "Desmantelado". Beautifully done reissue – with some extremely poetic notes from Lula Cortes! CD
(Beautiful mini-record sleeve package!)

Os MutantesMutantes (1969) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that's partly postmodern, partly psychedelic, and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can't understand most of the lyrics! Styles are just about impossible to pin down, but that's what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the Tropicalia years, this one may well be it! A few tracks are written by Tom Ze, and titles include "Dom Quixote", "Dia 36", "Magica", "Rita Lee", "Algo Mais", "Qualquer Bobagem", and "Fuga No II". LP, Vinyl record album

Lucas Santtana & Selecao Natural3 Sessions In A Greenhouse ... CD
Diginois (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $11.99
The most mindblowing record to date from Lucas Santtana – a dub-heavy session recorded live in the studio, done with a darkly brooding sound that's far different from his other albums! Instrumentation here is by the combo Selecao Natural – working in a blend of heavy bass and horns that are often nicely processed in the production – given a real old school approach to dub, but without losing any of the spontaneity of the live performance! Lucas himself sings, plays guitar and cavaquinho – and his presence on the record often comes out more cleanly in relation to the headier backings, making for a contrast that really adds a lot of power to the songs, and a sense of presence that's way more than just quirky genre-crossing pop. And although dub is one of the strongest elements here, there's plenty of other influences working through the mix too – including bits of Afro Beat and old school electro! The record features guest appearances by Tom Ze, Phyllis Huber, and Gilbar Bola 8 of Nacao Zumbi – and titles include "Pela Orla", "Tijolo", "Into Shade", "A Natureza Espera", "Ogodo Ano 2000", and "Pela Orla Dos Velhos Tempos".

Alceu Valenca70 (Molhado de Suor/Vivo/Espelho Cristalino/Saudade de Pernambuco) (180 gram 4LP set) ... LP
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), Late 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $99.99
Important early work from underground Brazilian legend Alceu Valenca – four albums served up in a beautiful box set! First up is Molhado De Suor – done with a nicely northern Brazil sound that involves plenty of acoustic percussion, guitar, and nice use of flute and craviola! The style here is almost a sophistication of earlier forro modes – done in a style that has traces of the Minas Geraes approach to songwriting and production, but a simpler, earthier feel overall. It's hard to peg this one accurately, but there's a simple genius here that's immediately compelling! Titles include "Borboleta", "Punhal De Prata", "Dia Branco", "Pedras De Sal", "Chutando Pedras", "Molhando De Suor", and "Mensageira Dos Anjos". Next is Vivo – a great live presentation of the 70s genius of Alceu Valenca – one that really keeps the organic feel of his best work in the studio, while adding in some of the spontaneity and warmth of a concert! Valenca plays acoustic guitar and sings amidst a smallish group that includes Ze Ramalho on ukulele and guitars, plus added flute, bass, and percussion – all used to build up the songs slowly and earthily, with that great mix of progressive and folksy styles we love in his work. Titles include "Descida Da Ladeira", "Voce Pensa", "Sol E Chuva", "Casamento Da Raposa Com O Rouxinol", and "Pontos Cardeais". Next is Espelho Cristalino – one of the important 70s albums from Alceu Valenca – with titles that include "Agalpoado", "Espelho Cristalino", "Eu Sou Voce", "Sete Leguas", and "A Danca Das Borboletas". Last up is the incredible Saudade De Pernambuco – a fantastic late 70s album from underground Brazilian legend Alceu Valenca – and a set that follows in the same tradition of exile as earlier albums by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil! The set was recorded in Paris, and has a sound that's maybe even earthier and stripped-down than some of Valenca's albums from a few years before – lots of percussion in the rhythms, entrancing guitar lines, and lyrics that are beautifully expressive, but never overdone – with a sensitivity that we find stunning, and which may make the record one of Alceu's most immediately appealing. There's a sense of sadness that lies in the music at much deeper levels than hinted at by the titles – but there's also a complexity of acoustic instrumentation and voice that creates a lightness, too – a richer, more sophisticated sound – but without any attempt to polish the music or overproduce it – a bit like Joyce at her best. Titles include "Cana Caiana", "Apoena", "Por Toda La", "Tres Galeras", "Saudade De Pernambuco", and "Como Nos Sonhos Fatais". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Jackel, 1996. Used ... $2.99
A great record! One of the nicest recent records by either Caetano or Gal Costa, and a compelling recent soundtrack to the film Tieta Do Agreste, by director Carlos Diegues. As with the other Caetano Veloso soundtrack on Blue Jackel, this one features arrangements and orchestrations by Jaques Morelenbaum, but unlike the other one, this album has a lot more vocal tracks – including many lovely spare numbers sung by Gal Costa. Veloso wrote the music, and adds some very nice vocals to a number of tracks, including one that's a duet with Gal. Titles include "Vento", "Perpetua", "Ze Esteves", "Venha Ca", "Imaculada", and "A Luz De Tieta". CD

Not as overtly funky as the Kid Creole remixes that ended up on the Ze 12"s, but still with a nice groove underneath the clamor that's keeping you awake. 7 tracks: "Irresistible Impulse", "That Old Black Magic", "Disco Jaded", "Money To Burn", "Sax Maniac", "Sax Machine" and "The Twitch".

VariousBrasileiro Treasure Box Of Funk & Soul (7 x 7 inch single set) ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Early 70s. New Copy 7 x 7 Inch ... $49.99 55.98
A stunning set of funky nuggets from 70s Brazil – an expertly chosen collection that really hones in on material that shows the strongest influence on the scene from American work of the time – complete with heavy drums, sharp guitars, funky basslines, and killer keyboards that all bring a funky sound to the Portuguese vocals of the tunes! There's some occasional regional influences – touches of samba soul here and there – but overall, most of these cuts could equally compete with the best American funk of the time – save for the difference of language! Yet there's also some really great production and arrangement twists and turns too – unique elements that really make these tunes stand out, as kind of a hip "something extra" that makes the set well worth checking out. The mighty Greg Caz picked the music – and he's been collecting and spinning this stuff for many years – and titles include "A Hora E Essa" by Celia, "Kizumbau" by Eduardo Araujo, "Aposta" by Toni Tornado, "Paz E Amor" by Os Incriveis, "Uma Vida" by Dom Salvador E Abolicao, "Ei Voce Psiu" by Franco, "Jimmy Rende Se" by Tom Ze, "America Latina" by Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Bochechuda" by Toni Tornado, and "Quem Va La" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousPiece The Next – Japan Breeze – Selected By Hiroko Otsuka ... CD
Key Of Life (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent overview of the ways in which the Japanese scene has really changed in recent years – moving past the straighter soul, house, and club jazz of a decade ago – into a range of creative styles that are completely their own! There's definitely a current of jazz that runs through most of this work, but the presentation is very unique overall – groups that change up rhythms in interesting ways, shift the instrumentation and production modes into very groundbreaking territory, and keep pushing the boundaries in the process! There's only one name here we'd heard before – Takuya Kuroda, who gave us records here in the US – but all other artists are new to our ears. Titles include "Porter" by Daiki Tsuneta Millennium Parade, "Spur" by Les Komatis, "Milestones" by Racha Fola, "Bring Me To Having A Curry Rice" by Banda Choro Eletrico, "WTRDR Suite 2 SDOKS" by Osawa Birdwatcherz, "Spank A Lee Jam" by Naked Voice, "The Source" by Satoshi Yoshida, "Green Dolphin Street" by Maya Hatch, and "Waiting In Fain" by Takumi Moriya.

✨✧ VariousZell's Girls – J&S, Zell's, Baton, & Dice Recordings 1955 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Girl soul galore – a massive collection of work from the Harlem-based production efforts of Zell Sanders – a lesser-known maestro of the girl group sound back in the 60s! Sanders issued most of this material on a few small labels – Zell, J&S, Baton, and Dice – but there's a really unified quality to the tunes, given his strong focus on sing-song lyrics, captivating rhythms, and the more earnest side of the vocal spectrum. Many of these tracks are a fair bit rougher than contemporary work on bigger labels – no Phil Spector or Leiber & Stoller masterpieces here – but that's also one of the great things about the music, because it makes the set a nice alternative to some of the too-polished, too-overplayed tracks that often dominate the girl group field. CD features 28 titles in all – including "Cry Behind The Daisies", "Extra Extra Read All About It", and "Peepin In & Out The Windows" by The Jaynetts; "Give Our Love A Chance" by Ada Ray, "No Turning Back For Me" by The Hearts, "Stay Away From My Baby" by Taffie Lee, "What Makes Me Love You Like I Do" by The Pre-Teens, "Suffering With My Heart" by The Endeavors, "To Be A Part Of You" by The Clickettes, "Need You To Help Me" by Rita Zell, "It Doesn't Matter" by Neice Dezel, "Over The Mountain Across The Sea" by Miss Johnnie, and "Oh Come Back Baby" by Ada Ray.

Eric AlexanderTemple Of Olympic Zeus ... CD
High Note, 2007. Used ... $5.99
A cheesy cover, but a rock-solid set of work from the mighty Eric Alexander – who seems to be stretching out even more here than before! Alexander's always been a hell of a straight ahead talent on the tenor, but here he's almost hitting a few more modern modes at times – not "out" in his soloing, but a bit more free thinking in the overall construction and execution of the tunes – willing to change things up a bit in the rhythms, and give the record even more freshness than we might have expected. Alexander's easily one of the greatest living talents in jazz recording today – and we're already huge fans of his work – but he's won us over even more with this set, and a few of the chances he takes on some of the tunes. The group's a well-matched batch of regulars – including Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "The Temple Of Olympic Zeus", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Lucas Too", "Blues For David", "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Dave's System".

Mirus/Our Gang, 1982. Very Good ... $6.99

The record easily rivals much of the work on the bigger labels at the time – thanks to some great arrangements by Dunn Pearson that mix together all the right elements that were cooking at the time – as well as some great vocal work from the group, who keep things plenty soulful, and show that the record's use of bass and keys isn't just a gimmick. Titles include "Love Showdown", "Games", "Groove Your Blues Away", "So Inspired", "Make Up Your Mind", "Who Do You Love", and "Share Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Zeshan BVetted ... CD
Minty Fresh, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A record that certainly deserves its title – as the sound is well-vetted right from the start, and not at all the gimmicky approach you might expect! Zeshan B might well be forging a whole new genre here – one of Indian soul – as the singer was raised by Indian parents in contemporary Chicago – where he developed a love of classic soul, especially the deeper variety from down south – which you'll definitely hear in the album's Memphis soul production at Ardent Studios by Lester Snell! We'll admit, we were a bit suspicious at first – but from the very first note, Zeshan won us over – a truly dedicated deep soul singer, and one who's also able to slide into a few non-English lyrics as well, but all without sounding gimmicky at all. Part of the record's strength is the instrumentation – which is as dedicated to classic Memphis modes as the singer – and titles include "Lonely Man", "Meri Jaan", "Hard Road To Travel", "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City", "Prove It To Me"< "Ki Jana", "You Don't Miss Your Water", and "What Now".
