✨✧ AzymuthAguia Nao Come Mosca ... CD
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 11.98
An incredible little record – and the set where it really all comes together for this legendary funky jazz group! Azymuth were already great on their debut, although maybe a little experimental at times – but here, they really find the soulful groove that later got them big fame on the US scene – effortlessly blending their tight jazz skills with a dose of samba soul, and turning out some wonderfully groovy music in the process! There's clearly an influence here from the best years of Earth Wind & Fire – but also more of the edge that you'd expect from the young trio – as the amazing Jose Roberto Bertrami blows us away with his wickedly sharp keyboard solos, as Alexandre Malheiros and Mamao create these beautiful rhythms that go way past anything you might have expected from a trio. The whole thing's wonderful – one of the most soulful Brazilian records of the 70s – and titles include the great cuts "Tarde", "Tamborim Cuica Ganza Berimbau", "Falcon Love Call", and "Aguia Nao Come Mosca".

Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Atlantic (France), 1966. Used ... $14.99
Although Herbie and Joao are listed together in the artist credits together for the record, they don't really play together on the record – as did Joao and Stan Getz on their album together. Instead, they trade off tracks of bossa nova material, recorded with Jobim in Rio – Joao's by EMI/Odeon, Herbie's by Atlantic. The set includes a host of great light breezy bossa stuff – like "Amor Em Paz", "O Barquinho", "Bim Bom", "Bolinha De Papel", and "Deve Ser Amor". Not totally over the top, but a very nice batch of breezy bossa tracks with lots of light flute and guitar lines floating around! CD

Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1966. Used ... $11.99
A great little record, and one that might be thought of best as a "Herbie Mann Plus" record – rather than a duet between the artists on the cover! Half the set features the American release of some great Joao Gilberto material from the early years in Brazil, with arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim – and the other half features excellent alto and flute solos from Mann, set to some sweet bossa backings by Jobim – with some additional guitar from a young Baden Powell! Given the Jobim arrangements on both sets of material, there's a great unified feel to the whole thing – and Herbie cuts include "Amor Em Paz", "Insensatez", "Consolacao", "Deve Ser Amor", and "One Note Samba" – which has a vocal by Jobim. Gilberto cuts include "Rosa Morena", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Bim Bom", and "Desafinado". CD

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio (green & yellow vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. New Copy ... $24.99
Sergio Mendes is definitely a swinger – especially on this jazz-based session that was recorded before his famous work with Brasil 66! This album was recorded in New York, at a time when Mendes was one of the hottest things brewing in the bossa scene in Brazil – and apart from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim on guitar, many of the other players are American jazz musicians – including Art Farmer on flugelhorn, Phil Woods on alto sax, and Hubert Laws on flute – all adding in some nice jazzy elements to the tunes! The music is all instrumental, and a great mix of jazz and bossa that really lets you hear the young Sergio's skills on piano. Titles include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio/Beat Of Brazil ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1966/1967. Used ... $7.99
Here's a reissue we never thought we'd see in the US! The folks at Collectables have put together 2 of Sergio Mendes' rarest, and earliest, albums – both of which were released by Atlantic in the mid 60's, but recorded earlier. Swinger From Rio was a jazz-oriented session, recorded in New York with a crack band of American players, like Art Farmer, Hubert Laws, and Phil Woods – plus guest appearances by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico De Souza. The groove here is mostly bossa instrumental, and titles include "Maria Moita", "Primavera", "Pau Brazil", "Batida Diferente", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", and "The Dreamer". Beat Of Brazil continues the same sort of bossa jazz groove, but the session was recorded in Brazil, and was originally issued by Philips under the name of Sergio Mendes & Bossa Rio (his early sextet group). Titles on that one include "Nana", "Noa Noa", "Neurotico", "Primitivo", and "Coisa No 2". The whole CD's a double-length bossa jazz groove party, and it's done up in a nicer format than the usual Collectables release. What a deal! CD

Sergio Mendes/Quartette Tres BienGreat Arrival/Bully ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1966. Used ... $6.99
Two sparkling jazzy albums from 1966! The Great Arrival is one of Sergio Mendes' most dreamy albums, and it's an all-instrumental batch of tracks. The format is easy Brazilian piano, over larger arrangements with a good jazz component – and the record features Mendes soloing over work by American arrangers Clare Fischer, Bob Florence, and Richard Hazard. The record's got bright horns, lush banks of strings, and cascading rhythms – all produced with exceptional sound, so that Sergio's piano goes gliding over the top in a manner that's similar to some of the Luis Eca albums in a similar format. Tracks include "Carnaval", "Boranda", "Nana", and "Bonita". Bully is the Quartette Tres Bien's only album for Atlantic, and it's a bit more of a straight jazz album than some of their sessions for Decca. The band's got their percussion/piano groove running hard – with Percy James on bongo and conga, Albert St James on drums, and Jeter Thompson on piano – and the playing has a strong focus on the piano work by Thompson, with a good mix of soul and lyrical styles. Includes the original track "Bully", plus versions of "Work Song", "Caravan", "Three O'Clock In The Morning", and "I Never Knew". CD

Camarao OrkestraNacao Africa ... CD
Favorite (France), 2020. New Copy ... $19.99
A great release by this really unique combo – a Brazilian group, but one who are equally interested in the African roots in their music – but in ways that are completely different than any other contemporary act we can think of! Camarao Orkestra aren't one of those Fela-styled Afro Funk combos that have popped up on nearly every scene around the globe in recent years – and instead, the music here is this really beautiful blend of Brazilian percussion, warmer production styles, and some deeper modes borrowed from the other side of the Atlantic – all fused together with instrumentation that's live, spontaneous, and never overproduced – in ways that really take us back to some of the best Brazilian musical experiments of years past! As part of that, the group take on one of the key tunes from the Afro Sambas project of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes – "Canto De Imenja" – and move into their own tunes on other tracks that include "Canto Da Bahia", "Dia De Verao", "Nacao Africa", "Copacabana", and "Guerreiro Yoruba".

Ronnie VonA Misteriosa Luta Do Reino De Parassempre Contra O Imperio De Nuncamais (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1969. Used ... $16.99
Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von – an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here – strong echoes of British work of the time, but used in much more sophisticated ways than any Jovem Guarda acts – never a simple copycat approach, but also never as arty as some of the Tropicalia recordings of the time either. Ronnie's voice has a depth that allows some nice changes in mood from track to track – lightly lyrical one moment, a bit darker and more tripped-out the next – bringing a sense of variety to the record that almost recalls Caetano Veloso during the time, but a bit more rockish overall. Titles include "Atlantica", "Dindi", "De Como Meu Heroi Flash Gordon", "Foi Bom", "Rose Ann", "Comeci Uma Brincadeira", and "Mares De Areia". CD features 4 bonus tracks – earlier singles that include "Meu Bem", "Paraiso", "O Pequeno Principe", and "Meu Mundo Parou". CD
