AzymuthOutubro (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound here is still relatively spare, and sublimely reliant on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who plays Fender Rhodes, organ, and percussion on the set. Ivan Conti handles the main percussion, though – a great mix of tight work on the drum kit and rootsier, Airto-like elements that are totally great – and the whole thing's driven along nicely by bass and guitar from Alex Malheiros – a perfectly fused lineup that really hits their own groove on the set. Guests include Aleuda on percussion and vocals, Gordinho on surdo, and Doto on repinique – and titles include "Papasong", "Outubro", "Maracana", "Un Amigo", "Carta Pro Airto", and "Dear Limmertz".

Mario Castro-NevesBrazilian Mood ... LP
Phase 4 (UK), 1973. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A unique British session from bossa maestro Mario Castro-Neves – one that's got the same sweet and jazzy touches as his 60s records, but a slightly different feel as well! The style here is totally great – kind of the same maturation of sound that Sergio Mendes was hitting in the early 70s – thanks to the right placement of a few electric elements, and a generally warm style of production that creates a great blend of modes in Castro-Neves' music. Instrumentation features keyboards, percussion, and some larger orchestrations used in very spare and creative ways – and there's often some great electric bass bubbling along the bottom to groove things up nicely. Many tracks have wordless vocals, sung in a scatting, breezy way that's even groovier than Brasil 77 – and titles include "Macumba Mood", "The Whole Mess", "Xaxado Blues", "Call Me Up", "Helena & I", "Hold My Hand", and "Loud & Clear".

Ivan Mamao ContiPoison Fruit (180 gram splattered color vinyl pressing – with bonus 7 inch) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy ... On August 29, 2020
Really mindblowing work from legendary drummer Ivan "Mamao" Conti – a key part of Azymuth through that group's many years – and still going strong here as a solo artist on his own! The album's almost a 21st Century realization of the sound that Azymuth was going for back in the day – cascading percussion with plenty of influences from Brazilian music and jazz, often given some electric elements along the way – but always in a style that's warmly organic, and right on the groove! Conti gets help from younger Azymuth and Incognito generations – as Alex Malherios plays bass on the record and Daniel Maunick handles keyboards, more percussion, and production – all at a level that never stomps on Ivan's vision at all – and which instead makes the whole thing as rewarding as any Azymuth session we've heard over the past few decades. Most tracks are instrumental, save for some airy wordless vocals – but Thiago Martins sings lead on "Que Legal", and other titles include "Aroeira", "Bacurau", "Poison Fruit", "Jemburi", "Ecos Da Mata", "Encontro", and "Tempestades". (Note: Record Store Day 2020 has been rescheduled to separate special release days of August 29, September 26 and October 24. The specific release date for each previously announced title is yet to be announced and subject to change.

✨✧ Antonio AdolfoViralata ... LP
Artezanal/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Tamba TrioBrasileira – Original Recordings From Brazil ... LP
Philips (Japan), Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Japanese collection of work by Tamba Trio – pulled from an amazing 60s run that really set them apart from other bossa combos of the time! The group hits hard right out of the box with the amazing piano of Luiz Eca and sublime vocal harmonies sung by all three members of the group – scatting along wordlessly with the tunes in a really haunting way! Drumming by Helcio Milito is incredibly tight – almost the blueprint for snapping bossa rhythms – and the whole album is produced to perfection with a sound that's dark and light at the same time. The sound is stunning, the playing is tight, and the tracks groove like nothing you could imagine! Cuts include "Tamba", "Samba Novo", "O Barquinho", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Mania Da Maria", and "Mas Que Nada". LP, Vinyl record album

AzymuthDemos 1973 to 1975 ... CD
Far Out (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing early work from Azymuth – rare demo recordings done at the home studio of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami, in the short space before the group issued their legendary debut! The tracks here are as much jazz funk as they are the later modes that Azymuth would put forth – killer instrumentals that are really driven by great keyboard lines from Bertrami, who'd already been making music in other formats for years – and who works here on Fender Rhodes, Arp, Clavinet, Hammond, and a range of other keyboards too! The drums are fantastic, too – handled by a young Ivan Conti, who gets help on percussion from an early fourth member of the group, Ariovaldo Contesini – and as you might guess, the incredible basslines of Ivan Mamao Conti really help the whole thing groove. All material is very well-recorded – these aren't rough or unfinished tracks at all – and the whole thing should just be thought of as a first chapter for the group, right before they started putting out their famous records. Titles include "Prefacio", "Castelo", "Melo Do Cuica", "Xingo", "Laranjeiras", "Eqiupe 68", "Unknown Song For Mario Telles", "Manha", "Duro De Roer", "Quem Tem Medo", "Juntos Mais Uma Vez", and "Bateria Do Mamao".

AzymuthTelecommunication ... LP
Milestone, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Excellent American release from the brilliant Brazilian fusion outfit Azymuth. While occasionally they managed to get a bit complicated in their arrangements, the songs and groove never suffered for it, and the crisp modern production complements their tight sound nicely, with warm key washes and percolating rhythms throughout. The ten minute "Last Summer In Rio" is a huge stepper's number here in Chicago, with it's sly Rhodes hook, and we've been waiting for forward looking numbers like "The House I Lived In", "What Price Samba" or "May I Have This Dance" to show up on a Gilles Peterson mix CD for years.

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD

Marcio LocalMarcio Local Says Don Day Don Dree Don Don – Adventures In Samba Soul ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2009. Used ... $3.99
A killer set that really lives up to the Samba Soul promised in the title – recorded recently by Marcio Local, but done with a solid 70s groove that takes us back to the Jorge Ben generation! The production here is perfect – never too polished, and always with a bit of grit in the grooves – so that the record feels more old-school funky than a current album trying to be retro – lots of great drums underneath keyboards, riffing guitar, and Local's raspily soulful vocals! The whole thing's pretty darn great – easily the best Luaka Bop album we've heard in ages – and it's a modern bit of samba soul we'd rank right up there with Seu Jorge's Carolina album. Titles include "Samba Sem Nenhum Problema", "Preta Luxo", "Minha Rosa", "Resgate", "Quem Pode Pode", "Sentimento Rei", "Happy Endings" by Soul Do Samba, and "Represento". CD

Serginho MeritiBons Moments (180 gram 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Time Capsule (Japan), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Funky samba soul from the Brazilian scene of the early 80s – a record that's drunk deep on all the best elements of Jorge Ben and his generation, then comes up with a groove that's even more soulful and groovy! The instrumentation has some occasional jazzy touches – the sorts of flourishes we love in Banda Black Rio – but the vocals are much more in the lead, and are served up by the completely charming Serginho Meriti – one of those Brazilian singers who grabs you right away, even if you can't understand his language – as there's a universal sense of soul that really makes the whole thing very appealing! The set's relatively short, but packed with great cuts – and titles include "Bons Momentos", "Malandro Velho", "Serjane", "Tipo Help", "Mona Lisa", "Batalha Maravilhosa", and "Madureira E Dai".

Sweet keyboard soul from Deodato – a set that steps off nicely from the strengths of his big hits on CTI, hitting a similarly flowing groove that's really great! The instrumentation here is a bit more expanded than before, but never in a way that buries the keyboards – and Deodato's right out front on a range of electric keys that get some great support from John Tropea's finely-honed work on guitar! Titles include "Havana Strut", "Whirlwinds", "West 42nd Street", and a nice cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". And heck, even the album's version of Glen Miller's "Moonlight Serenade" manages to come off like a funk tune! (Jazz, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A contemporary set from Brazil, but one with a groove that feels like it was lifted right from the 70s – especially that period later in the decade when samba soul modes were coming into play with warmer boogie modes! The set's a live one, and features the strong lead vocals of Renato Gama with a very strong backing combo – great keyboards, funky rhythms, and a pair of female singers who really balance out the rougher edges of Renato's vocals nicely – making for a blend that almost reminds us of some of our favorite work by Emilio Santiago back in the day, especially some of his albums for Philips. Titles include "Jogo", "O Futuro", "Rita", "Vai Bem", "O Iludido", "Banzo", "O Saudoso Guardador De Reses", and "Comida De Comer Com A Mao". Also features a bonus 7" single – with older album tracks "Essa Preta E Treta" and "Engraxate", both by the group Nhocune Soul. LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully.

Far Out (UK), 2006. Used ... $6.99
Samba is their gift – and we're all that much richer for it! Os Ipanemas return here in one of their best albums so far – a beautiful blend of earthy percussion, samba rhythms, and just a bit of bossa jazz – put together with a style that's personal and spontaneous, recorded without any extra fanfare – and in a mode that's almost more authentic than similar recordings from the 60s! Leave it to the Far Out label to get a session like this done the right way – because there's none of the too-slick sounds of some revival sessions, nor any of the fake roots that just come off as tired over-hashed ideas. Instead, what we've got here is a lively, organic batch of music that shows that percussionist Wilson Das Neves and guitarist Neco are still growing strongly in their talents – aided here by an array of guest players on trumpet, trombone, flute, and a fair bit of extra percussion – and sounding especially nice on those tracks where Wilson's warmly crackling vocals simmer nicely with the grooves! Titles include "Imperial", "Malandro Qando Vaza", "San Roque", "Valsamba", "Treze Trinta E Nove", "Folia No Samba", "Taioba", and "Samba Pra Mim Mesmo". CD

A cool collection of contemporary grooves with Brazilian roots – material that's right up there with some of the best recent material from labels like Far Out or Trama, and which shares a similar blend of acoustic and electric elements! Most of these numbers have a warmly soulful glow – great vocals on the top, usually sung in Portuguese – supported with live instrumentation that's heavy on percussion, but also includes keyboards, guitar, and occasional electronics too – all handled with a beautiful sense of balance, and never pushed into the colder territory that can turn us off. A number of these artists are ones we'd never heard at all – making the CD an especially great discovery for us – and titles include "Maimborie" by Mr Ze, "Quando Voce Chega" by Soukeyna, "Jeito Esquisito" by Fabio Fonseca Trio, "Pra Bahia" by Boca Do Rio, "Que Nego E Esse" by Micheline Cardoso, "Preta" by Partido Leve, "Canto Negro" by Ana Paula Da Silva, and "Tambores Da Serra" by Tambores Da Serra.
