Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca/Mr Funky Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards! "Mr Funky Samba" is another great instrumental – and is maybe a lot more funk than samba – with excellent trombone work that would make Wayne Henderson blush! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Black Belt SymphonyBrotherman/Geronimo Pratt ... 7-inch
Jazzaggression (Estonia), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic spiritual jazz from the west coast scene of the early 80s – two tracks that have a vibe that reminds us a lot of Oneness Of Juju on their first few records, but with maybe an even headier vibe overall! The songs were both written by Somaya Peaches Moore-Khaliq – who plays keyboard, autoharp, and sings – the last with this very righteous, political style that's very powerful – and which gets great accompaniment from a lineup that includes Fuasi Abdul Khaliq on tenor, Louie Mbiki Spears on bass, and Nirankar Sing Khalsa on drums – plus additional percussion from Sekou Ali and Akin Davis. Both cuts are great – and feel like lost work from the LA Underground! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Smoke & Smile BandAfrica/Black High ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Righteous funk from the Smoke & Smile Band – really sounding great on "Africa" – a cut that almost feels like it was pulled from some Roy Ayers sessions of the late 70s! The tune's upbeat, has great keyboards, and this chunky funky groove that's as righteous as the lyrics! "Black High" is great too – a wicked bit of 70s-styled jazz funk, with a nicely edgey set of horn solos in the middle! When's the full album? We can't wait! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Banda Black Rio/MieleMiss Cheryl/Melo Do Tagarela (Rapper's Delight inst) ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Two killer slices of Brazilian funk! The instrumental "Miss Cheryl" is one of the trademark tunes of Banda Black Rio – a cut with these sharp, jazzy changes that are completely amazing – and which easily have BBR rivaling the sound of Earth Wind & Fire at their best! The flipside is a very cool remake of "Rapper's Delight" – one that starts out in familiar territory on the start, but then has a jazzier piano line instead of the vocal, and a wicked guitar solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marcos Valle/Don BetoA Paraiba Nao E Chicago/Nao Quero Mais ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1981. New Copy ... $12.99
One of our favorite later tunes by Marcos Valle – a fantastic bit of modern soul that was created with help from Leon Ware – and which also has the same great vibe as some of Ware's best groovers from the start of the 80s, but with a Brazilian twist too! The flipside features Don Beto on "Nao Quero Mais" – a sharp bit of jazzy funk that's very much in the best spirit of contemporary combo Banda Black Rio – but with a bolder vocal approach from Don over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
