A killer second album from Os 3 Morais – a record that already shows them expanding out to some of the more unusual, more complicated harmonies that would make their EMI/Odeon albums such classics! Although these guys started out as a simple pop group, this album already has them hitting the complex harmonic territory of contemporaries like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy – with the two male voices criss-crossing with the female voice in a mighty nice way – all set to arrangements from Sidney Morais and Laecio De Freitas, often with a nice mix of jazz and groovy elements! Titles include "Ate 2a Feira", "Um Amor De Brinquedo", "Januaria", "Travessia", "Carolina", "Margarida", "Com Acucar Com Afeto", and "Motivos". CD

Moderna Orquestra De Samba —
Sambalanco ... CD Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. Used ...
A totally wonderful little combo – and one that features some excellent horn solos with a very jazzy vibe! The groove here is definitely the samba rhythms you'd expect, but there's also a lot of jazz in the mix too – a strong sense of soloing that has some key players stepping out from the larger lineup for extended spots on their own – including a alto saxophonist, a trumpeter, and trombonist – all with a very well-developed sound! The rhythms are great – nice and lively – but its these (unfortunately unnamed) soloists who really make the album great – and give it way more flavor than just a standard Brazilian instrumental set. The group's led by maestro Marku Rupe – and titles include "Sem Bossa", "Tao Bom", "Era Bom", "Caminhando", "O Tempo Nao Desfaz", "A Sandalia Dela", "Doi Doi Doi", and "O Maioral". CD
A great album of samba tunes – with work by some surprising guests! The album's got a style that's both rootsy and more mainstream, depending on the track, and depending on the way the music is interpreted – and overall, the collection has a few numbers that really make it worth picking up. Elis Regina does a wonderful job on the tune "Tiradentes"; MPB4 bring a strong harmony approach to the track "Iaia Do Cais Dourado"; and Nara Leao sings "Nordeste Seu Povo Seu Canto E Sua Gloria" with some nice folksy touches. Other tracks include "Chica Da Silva" by Erasmo Carlos, "Oropa Franca E Bahia" by Trio Mocoto, and "Misticismo Da Africa Ao Brasil" by Erlon Chaves E Banda Veneno. LP, Vinyl record album
