Ze Eduardo UnitA Jazzar – Live In Capuchos ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2009. Used Gatefold ... $5.99
Ze Eduardo's bass is at the helm of a trio that also features tenor from Jesus Santandreu and drums from Bruno Pedroso – both players we don't know at all, but who manage to follow Eduardo's shifting energy beautifully in the set! Some numbers are quite bold and free – power trio playing with an ESP-via-Sweden sort of approach – while other numbers have a much more tentative style, with some subtle sonic textures that we really like the best from this group – especially Santandreu. Titles include "Dartacao", "Grandolo", "Noddy", "Balada Da Rita", and a very odd take on "The Simpsons" theme. CD

Ze Renato, Jards Macala, Guinga, & Moacyr LuzDobrando A Carioca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Tom ZeCancoes Eroticas De Ninar ... CD
Circus (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

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 ... $3.99
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".

Luaka Bop, 1970s/1980s/1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although it's hard to understand from the perspective of over a decade (especially one that's seen Tom Ze rise to fame again), when this compilation was first put together, the music of Tom Ze had all but fallen off the musical map of Brazil. Ze was one of the founding fathers of Tropicalia – and unlike other members of that group, who rose to great fame during the 70s, and straighted up their act a bit, Ze always remained a committed modernist, as you'll hear on this sampling of 13 tracks from his rare releases on a number of labels. The style's incredibly hard to pin down – and in fact, we might describe the recordings as being "anti-style" – but if you've heard any of Ze's work, you know you're in for a treat. Titles include "Ma", "Doi", "Hein?", "Cademar", "Um Oh E Um Ah", and "A Felicidade". CD

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

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".

Luaka Bop, 1998. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album that marked a huge return to form for the legendary Tom Ze – brought back to all the power and creativity of his groundbreaking work of the 70s! The set was given huge global circulation by the folks at Luaka Bop – who were key in introducing most of the world to Tom's music – which although groundbreaking, barely made it outside of Brazil in the 70s – and every aspect of the record is done just the right way to showcase the mania that Ze always brought to his music. Some tracks are quite spare, and have the poetic structure of some of Tom's classics – while others have more of a tuneful approach, but with an offbeat vibe that really sets them apart from most Brazilian music of the period. The set marked a huge interest in Tom's music for a new generation – and for good reason too. Titles include "Dancar", "Juventude Javali", "Valsar", "Xiquexique", "Olho Do Lago", and "Politicar".

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". CD

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

Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
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

One of August Darnell's many side projects for the Ze label – and an excellent album of club tracks that features Fonda Rae on vocals! Don Armando Bonilla leads the group and plays percussion, but it's Fonda's vocals that really make the best tracks sparkle – as she was one of the best club singers of the post-disco era, one could add a lot more soul to an album than some of her contemporaries. The grooves are a mix of downtown styles, in that Darnell/Kid Creole mode that has retro elements dancing along wonderfully with more contemporary dancefloor sounds – and titles include "Para Ti", "Winter Love", "Goin To A Showdown", "I'm An Indian Too", and "Deputy Of Love".

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

The last lovely album in a wonderful run of records from Lizzy Mercer Descloux – one of the most unique talents to work on the Ze Records imprint in the 80s – and an artist who shared plenty of the genre-crossing, global-mixing elements of her contemporaries! The album's got a sound that's still as lean as Lizzy's earliest albums, but a slightly warmer glow too – almost a jazzy vibe at times, with a style that takes us back to our favorite sounds from the Swamp Children/Kalima on Factory Records at the same time – although with plenty of that French twist that she's always brought to her music. And in fact, this time around the lyrics seem even more French than ever – on titles that include "2 Femmes A La Mer", "L'Heure Bleu", "Once Upon A Time Out", "Echec Et Mat", and "A Room In New York". CD features bonus tracks – "Hurricane", "Playtime", "Gypsy Flame", "Lucky Strike Drive", and "Calypso Moguls (7" version)". CD

Chico Buarque & OthersChico Buarque Songbook Vol 1 ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1999. Used ... $9.99
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!

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

Grupo UmUma Lenda Ao Vivo – Ao Vivo Na Fabrica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
It's been many years since we heard from Grupo Um – that especially inventive Brazilian combo who gave us some really great records at the start of the 80s! Yet the passage of years hasn't dimmed them at all – and this recent performance almost feels as if it could have been recorded right after their classic first two albums, with a similar far-reaching approach to electric jazz! These are the guys who really set the spark for a new wave of fusion experiments in Brazilian jazz in the 80s – the lineup Lelo Nazario on keyboards, Ze Eduardo Nazario on drums and percussion, and Mauro Senise on saxes and flutes – and all these many years later, they're still sharper than most of the younger players they inspired. The quintet have a way of stretching out and getting complex, but never in the noodly way of other fusion players who go off the deep end – and throughout, they also never let the electric instruments leave the plane of core acoustic spontaneity – which makes for a wonderful performance all the way through. Frank Herzberg plays acoustic bass, and Felix Wagner is on bass clarinet and keyboards – and titles include "Marcha Sobre A Cidade", "A Porta Do Sem Nexo", "Dala", "54754-P(4)-D(3)-0", "Sonhos Esquecidos", "Velho Mundo Novo", and "Fragmentum".

Time Lag Records, 1973. Used Gatefold ... $12.99
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

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 ... $129.99
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

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

VariousChebran – French Boogie 1980 to 1985 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. Used ... $12.99
Very cool sounds from the French scene of the post-disco years – music that reflects that growing embrace of boogie rhythms on European dancefloors, but in ways that are often inflected with new wave and electro soul styles too! The music here is leaner and a lot more creative than the bigger Euro disco modes of a few years before – and often has that criss-crossing of soul, funk, rock, and post-punk modes that played big on the downtown New York scene of the early 80s – that Danceteria mode you'd hear on Ze Records, 99 Records, or other hip imprints of the time – but delivered here in a batch of tracks that are a lot more obscure! The Born Bad label has already tipped us off to groovy French sounds from the 60s, and punk work of the 70s – and this package is another one of their culture-opening gems – with titles that include "Easy Life" by New Paradise, "Play Boy En Detresse" by Style, "A Mon Age Deja Fatique" by Pierre Edouard, "La Degaine" by Trigo & Friends, "La Fourmi" by Bianca, "Gerard Vincent Par Gerard Vincent" by Gerard Vincent, "Ma Vie Dans Un Bocal" by Ich, "Les Crabes" by Attache Case, "Miam Miam Goody Goody" by Henriette Coulouvrat, and "Qu'Est Ce Qu'Il A" by Krootchey.

✨✧ VariousSecao Ritmica – Instrumental Funk From 70s Brazil (with bonus 45) ... LP
Atemoya, 1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead take keen inspiration from the American world of jazz and soul – which they then mix with occasional instrumental touches of their own region, and often use some wonderfully trippy production to put a really unique spin on the music! So even though these tracks are filled with heavy drums, riffing guitars, and killer keyboards – they've got a special sound that really sets them apart from the American music that first gave them inspiration – all of which makes for an incredibly fresh approach to funky styles. Titles include "Sultana" by Aquarius Band, "Eu Quero Levar Voce Pra Casa" by Ed Lincoln, "The King's Bounce" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Tio Macro" by Dom Salvador, "Kool & The Gang" by Cry Babies, "Metropole" by Cesar Mariano & CIA, "Rush" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Assalto" by Ze Rodrix, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, and "Tipo Africa" by Brazil Very Happy Band.

✨✧ VariousTropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled not just with great music, but also an overwhelming amount of notes that trace the history of Brazilian music and art through their changes in relation to Tropicalia! In fact, the notes are almost worth the price of the compilation alone – very densely written over 48 pages in the CD booklet, with more information in one place than we've ever seen before. But as you might imagine, it's the music that really makes the set special – and Soul Jazz have done an excellent job of pulling together key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

Sony (Brazil), 1997. Used ... $7.99
Very cool new compilation that features modern versions of Tropicalia classics from the late 60's, with performances by many of the artists who made the movement happen in the first place! The CD includes 13 cuts, including versions of "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, & Tom Ze; "Divino Maravilhoso" by Gal Costa, "Atras Do Trio Eletrico" by Moraes Moreira, "Alegria, Alegria" by Daniela Mercury, "Bat Macumba" by Ile Aye, and "Soy Loco Por Ti America" by Araketu! The set's packaged in a cool sleeve with lots of colorful images in collage, and lyrics to all the songs. And in case you're wondering, the production standards are good, and not too poppy. The stuff's not as tripped out as it was in the 60's, but the set's still a great tribute to some of the greatest Brazilian songs of all time. CD

✨✧ DefunktDefunkt ... LP
Hannibal, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key link between 70s funk and some of the avant jazz rock trends on the New York scene in the early 80s – a group who seem to draw inspiration both from the sound of larger funk groups like Brass Construction and BT Express, and from the artier styles of the Ze Records generation of the time! Joseph Bowie's in the lead on vocals and trombone – working here with Byron Bowie on saxes, Ronnie Burrage on drums, Melvin Gibbs on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on percussion, and both Kelvyn Bell and Martin Aubert on guitars. Given the avant roots of some of the players, it's tempting to read in some deeper theories to some of the album's tunes – but honestly, the record's just an all-out grooving affair – one that's going for a party funk approach, but which also throws in some touches from the post-disco and black rock scenes of the time. Titles include "Defunkt", "Thermonuclear Sweat", "Melvin's Tune", "We All Dance Together", "Make Them Dance", and "Strangling Me With Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur RussellCalling Out Of Context ... CD
Audika, Mid 80s/Early 90s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of unreleased recordings by the great, largely unheralded Arthur Russell – one of the key players in the late 70s/early 80s NY underground – whose influence can be found everywhere from the smoky disco of the Paradise Garage scene to the dubby, arrhythmic, and percussive pounding of the post punk era! If you know anything about Russell, you know he hated to be nailed down. He's a classically trained cellist, who made his name producing now legendary disco numbers for Loose Joints and others. He went into the 80s exploring the kind of harder charging, minimalist grooving vibe that was kicked into effect by the unholy union of punk and dance music, but unlike some of the others Arthur still carried the soulful musicality of the 70s. The 12 tracks here are culled from sessions cut between 1985 and 1990 when Russell was signed to Rough Trade – and have gone completely unreleased until now! Most feature Russell on almost unrecognizable ambient cello, hypnotic vocals, and some of the coolest 80s drum programming you'll ever hear – with lots of cool synth notes and effects overdubbed, often with Peter Zummo on trombone and Mustafa Ahmed on percussion. It's really hypnotic, fairly raw, quite left of center but still very groovy stuff! If you appreciate the Ze Records scene, and all of those the great reissues of the NY post punk and disco years, this is totally essential! Tracks include "In The Deer Forest Part 1", "The Platform On The Ocean", "You And Me Both", "Calling Out Of Context", "Arm Around You", "Wild Combination", "Get Around To It" and more. CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning little collection – maybe the best so far in the excellent Punk 45 series from Soul Jazz – thanks to a tremendous amount of music on the west coast at the end of the 70s! Truth be told, you could do a 10CD set on the LA punk scene at the time, and still never hit any filler – but our hat's off to Soul Jazz for making such a great selection here – mixing together key classics, overlooked gems, and a few tracks we've been waiting to see reissued for years – all in a really sublime collection that gets at the special sort of sound that was coming from the city of angels! LA punk was often a lot more urgent than music coming from New York, Ohio, or other key scenes at the time – often sneering, often with a good sense of wit, and played with a frenzy that went onto inspire countless other artists in years to come. The package is great, the notes are detailed, and the whole thing's one that you'll be playing for years – thanks to tracks that include "I Like Drugs" by The Simpletones, "World War III" by TSOL, "Hollywood Square" by The Hollywood Squares, "Out Of Vogue" by The Middle Class, "Life Of Crime" by The Weirdos, "I'm White & Middle Class" by The Urinals, "ABCD" by The Randoms, "Don't Push Me Around" by The Zeros, "Bloodstains" by Agent Orange, and "Class War" by The Dils.

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 ... $7.99
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".

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".
