Antonio AdolfoViralata ... LP
Artezanal/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... About July 31, 2020
Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest records ever by Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! The album was recorded at the end of the 70s, and has a sound that's a lot like the best fusion work by Azymuth – a great mix of jazz and funk, plus more dynamic Brazilian elements – all wrapped together in a way that a rare few hybrids do this well! There's great keyboards right up front in the mix – and the backing has some tight percussion that crackles along and gives the album a heavy bottom and a great groove. The album was originally only issued on the tiny Artezanal label – but it feels like a lost gem from the classic funk years at Fantasy Records – internationally funky, far past just a Brazilian music gem. Titles include the massive break cut "Cascavel", plus other nice tracks like "Viralata", "A Marcha", "Assanhada", "Vermelhinho", and "Brincadeira Em Mi Bemol". LP, Vinyl record album

Eumir DeodatoOs Catedraticos 73 (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Equipe/Far Out (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A rare Brazilian album from the legendary keyboardist Deodato – recorded right around the same time as his classic CTI albums Prelude and Deodato 2 – but much more obscure! This set's got a similar electric vibe, but is much more compact – with maybe more organ than Rhodes, on tunes that are short, groovy, and very much to the point – graced with the kind of arranging genius that Eumir showed during the bossa nova years, but with a lot more soul and funk elements in the mix! The whole thing's very unique – not like any other Deodato album – and it was partly recorded in New York, with help from Phil Bodner and Romeo Penque on saxes and flute, and trumpet from Marvin Stamm. Titles include "Arranha Ceu" – a remake of his "Skyscrapers" – plus "Puma Branco", "Extremo Norte", "Menina", "O Jogo", "Flap", "Atire A 1a Pedra", and "Carlota E Carolina". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGinga – The Sound Of Brazilian Football ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used ... $9.99
It's no secret that Brazilians love their football and are pretty darn good at it – but it's a lesser-known fact that they also associate a lot of music with the game! This excellent set is a wonderful document of the link between music and football in Brazil – and features some classic songs that were either recorded by or for footballers, or which in time have come to be associated with the game. As you can imagine from the ferocity of the game, most of the tunes are lively, uptempo, and very groove oriented – which makes the set way more than just a package of sports songs, and an essential set of Brazilian grooves! Titles include"Mas Que Nada" by Tamba Trio, "Filo Maravilha" by Marijo, "Hino Da Bahia" by Caetano Veloso, "O Rei Pele" by Jackson Do Pandeiro, "Perdao Nao Tem" by Elis Regina & Pele, "Futebol Do Bar" by Caesar Camargo Mariano, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Ba Tu Ca Da" by Par Ney De Castro, "Rapido" by Portinho, "Pele" by Arakatuba & Ballistic Brothers, "Goleiro" by Batida Do Corpo, and even some great snippets of famous football goals from Brazil! And, in case you're wondering, this set has a different track list than the other Mr Bongo/football CD – a handful of the same tunes, but many different – and a total of 24 cuts in all. CD
