✨✧ Elizeth CardosoO Inverno Do Meu Tempo ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Elizeth Cardoso sounds really wonderful here – stepping out on some of the more familiar samba modes of her classics, but also mixing things up in nice ways too – using some mature, sophisticated styles that are served up by a mix of arrangers that includes Antonio Adolfo, Sivuca, Geraldo Vespar, and Radames Gnattali! Cardoso has the sort of voice that commands respect, no matter what the setting – and the variety here really helps deepen our understanding of her talents, especially as we haven't heard much from this point in her career. Titles include "Queixa", "Unhas", "No Tempo Dos Quintais", "Voltar", "De Repente", and "O Inverno Do Meu Tempo" – plus guest work from Baden Powell on "Velho Amigo", and Joao Nogueira on "Mulata Faceira".

✨✧ Hamilton De Holanda & Orquestra Do Mato GrossoAlegria ... CD
Brasilianos (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most playful albums we've ever heard from Hamilton De Holanda – a set that features the master instrumentalist on 10 string bandolim, in front of some larger orchestrations – but on tunes that are pulled from a variety of pop culture sources, including some surprising entries from cartoons and video games! Hamilton's command of his instrument is still fantastic – beautifully expressive, and always doing a heck of a lot with just a little – and the larger orchestrations are thoughtfully handled by Leandro Carvalho, in a way that never dims the presence of the lead instrument, but instead inflects its sound with just the right sense of color and space. Titles include "Sitio Do Pica Pau Amarelo", "A Pantera Cor De Rosa", "Super Mario Brothers", "Os Flinstones", "Vida Alegria E Esperanca", and "Dorme Com Os Anjos". CD

✨✧ Ricardo RichaidTravessiero Feliz ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soaring blend of Brazilian modes – served up here by Ricardo Richaid, who's almost a one-man army himself, given the amount of instruments he plays on the set! Yet the record is also way more than just a batch of tunes cooked up in a bedroom – as Richaid has collaborators on nearly every track – which expands his own work on piano, bass, and a variety of guitars – really helping to situation his raspy and compelling vocals amidst some jazzier touches on flute and tenor, guest vocals, percussion, and other elements along the way! The tunes are often really catchy and compelling, even if your command of Portuguese is as bad as ours – and it's clear that Ricardo really knows his way around a hook, in sort of a universal way – while still making music that's completely his own. Titles include "Drone", "Vip Xuxa", "Maracas Enterprise/Frio Da Manha", "Ave Poena", "O Velho Cai", and "Formigas". CD
