✨✧ VariousBeat Of Brazil – Brazilian Grooves From The Warner Vaults ... CD
Warner (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
Brazilian grooves all over the place – and a wonderful assortment of tunes from the Warner, Atlantic, and Elektra vaults of the 60s and 70s! The set list goes way past the pop-bossa numbers that you might think from the cover, which is a cop from an old Atlantic compilation of the 60s – and includes some lesser-known tracks cooked up in Brazil during the 70s, as well as some of their American counterparts. Titles include "Celebration Suite" by Airto, "Jive Samba" by Jon Hendricks, "Eu Bebo Sim" by Osmar Milito, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, "From The Lonely Afternoon" by Flora Purim, "Upa Neguinho (live)" by Elis Regina,"Manha De Carnival" by Louie Ramirez, "Barsanova Brown" by Eddie Cano, and more.

✨✧ Joao GilbertoAmoroso/Brasil ... CD
Warner, 1977/1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A collection of two albums that Joao Gilberto did for Warner Brothers in the late 70s/early 80s. Amoroso is some pretty sweet stuff from Joao Gilberto – featuring a core jazz combo playing along with a larger set of arrangements, in a manner that's similar to some of Jobim's work from the 70s. The album features a nice vocal version of Jobim's "Wave" and "Zingaro", plus the tracks "Estate", "Tin Tin Por Tin Tin", and "Besame Mucho". On Brasil, Joao Gilberto meets the younger generation of Brazilian vocalists – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – and the four of them lay down some nice jazzy stuff, with all the vocals weaving in and out. Tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Cordeiro De Nana", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Milagre", and "Bahia Com H". Johnny Mandel conducted, and Joao produced. CD

✨✧ Ed MottaEntre E Ouca ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early soul material from the great Ed Motta – a record that really has the Brazilian singer hitting his stride! Ed's a singer that we've loved for many years, and await eagerly for each new record – but this early 90s set is one of his first great musical moments, a set that has him really finding his voice, and following strongly in the Brazilian soul tradition of his famous uncle, Tim Maia! And although Motta had worked in some more beat-heavy, poppy modes on previous records, this one has a much richer vibe – and shows the love of older 70s styles that would reemerge later on his seminal AOR set – done here with leaner, more stripped down modes that are mighty nice. The songwriting is great – and Motta's voice, as always, is incredible – and the instrumentation features a fair bit of Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, which really further the warmth of the vocals. Titles include "Bem Longe", "Agora Que O Dia Accordou", "Entre E Ouca", "A Vontade", and "Se Ate As 11". Plus, the CD has 5 bonus tracks – including live and demo versions! CD

✨✧ Hermeto PascoalZabumbe Bum A ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A gem of an album from Hermeto Pascoal – right up there with 70s classics like A Musica Libre and Slaves Mass – and done with a similar sort of energy that goes way beyond jazz, way beyond conventional Brazilian music – into territory that can only be described as Hermeto-like! The set's got a mix of tight fusion jamming, off-beat reed work, and some of Hermeto's heavenly compositions – and although there's a good groove to much of the material, that doesn't stop it from being as experimental as always – not in a dark threatening way, but more in a soaring joyous one! Titles include "Susto", "Alexandre, Marcelo e Pablo", "Santo Antonio", "Pimenteira", "Sao Jorge", and "Rede". CD

Elis ReginaElis, Essa Mulher ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
Really great late work from Elis Regina – recorded in the company of arranger Cesar Mariano, whose masterful touch made for some of Elis' best albums of the 70s! Cesar arranged and conducted here, and although the production is perhaps a bit more contemporary than Elis' work for Philips, the vocals are sublime – much more driving and jazzy than a few years before, really working hard to dig deep and get the best sound out of each of the tunes! Titles include "Cai Dentro", "Basta De Clamares Inocencia", "Eu Hein Rosa", "As Paraencias Engagem", and a nice version of Joyce's "Essa Mulher". CD

Maria RitaSamba Meu ... CD
Warner, 2007. Used ... $3.99
A really beautiful little record by Maria Rita – and a wonderful departure from her previous sets! This time around, as you might guess from the title, Maria's serving up a host of samba tunes – done in a mostly-acoustic mode that crackles with live percussion, acoustic guitar, and other Brazilian instrumentation – a beautifully unfettered setting that almost has Rita sounding even better than before – a lot more human and a lot more personal, shaking off the personal heritage that served well to introduce her to the world, but which also somehow held her back. It's clear from the notes that Maria's a relative newcomer to the samba, but she takes to the style perfectly here – and brings in a sense of warmth and jazz that in turn really help liven up the genre. The balance here is beautiful, and the album's way more than we could have expected – a true treasure from an artist who's finally beginning to make us sit up and take notice. Titles include "Corpitcho", "Novo Amor", "Trajetoria", "O Que E O Amor", "Samba Meu", "O Homem Falou", "Ta Perdoado", "Num Corpo So","Maltratar Nao E Direito", and "Maria Do Socorro". CD

Marcos ValleBraziliance! ... CD
Warner/Mr Bongo (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the most important early albums by Marcos Valle – a set of instrumental tracks recorded with lots of acoustic guitar! Even though Valle was well known as a singer and composer of bossa nova tunes, the set instead focuses on his instrumental work – recording his guitar ala Jobim or Bonfa at the time – with some larger arrangements from Deodato, who really brings a great feel to the set! The sound is tremendous – as sweeping strings soar over tight rhythms from drummer Wilson Das Neves – and Valle and Deodato set some magical moods on tunes that include "Deus Brasileiro", "Vamos Pranchar", "Tanto Andei", "Seu Encanto", "Batucada Surgiu", "Dorme Profundo", and "Os Grilos" – the first ever recording of "Crickets Sing For Anamaria"!

✨✧ Tom ZeRaridades ... CD
Warner (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rare work from the young Tom Ze – obscure tracks from 7" singles, compilations, and festival performances too – all brought together as a counterpart to his full length albums on the Continental and RGE labels! As singles, a few of these tracks are maybe a bit straighter than the more experimental style of Tom's classic albums – but they've still got all these weird little twists and turns, especially as the 70s move into the mix a bit more – showing this amazing ability that Ze has to explode the format of a conventional pop presentation, all while moving a modernist agenda forward a few steps more. Titles include "Bola Pra Frente", "Silencio De Nos Dois", "Senhor Cidadao", "A Baba", "Angusta Angelica E Consolacao", "Contos De Fraldas", "Doi", "A Dama De Vermalho", "Voce Gosta", and a version of the Caetano Veloso song "Irene". Also includes two tracks arranged by Tom, sung by Betina – "Doi" and "O Anfitriao". CD

Tom ZeSerie 2 Momentos Vol 1 – Se O Caso E Chorar/Todos Os Olhos ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1972/1973. Used ... $19.99
A collection of two wonderful early 70s albums from Tom Ze, recorded just after the Tropicalia years! Se O Caso E Chorar has a number of tracks with a samba sound at the base – but there's more than enough fantastic material to keep the record fresh, and Tom's writing is as great as ever. There's a vocal group that sings with Ze on many of the tracks on the record – but they also seem to sometimes act as a Greek chorus, in response to breakway vocal passages that are dominated by Ze. Includes the excellent baroque funky number "Dor E Dor", plus the tracks "Sonho Colorido De Um Pintor", "A Baba", "O Sandalo", "A Briga Do Edificio Italia Com O Hilton Hotel", and "Happy End". Todos Os Olhos is the record with the famous cover of a marble balanced on an asshole (!) – and it further refines Tom Ze's distinctive approach to songwriting with an over the top approach that moves far beyond the experimentation of Tropicalia! The record is incredible, with a mix of amazing songs that piece together hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil. Includes the tracks "Complexo De Epico", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Dodo E Zeze", "Brigitte Bardot", and "O Riso E A Faca". Plus the CD booklet reproduces the artwork and inserts of the original albums.

Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Atlantic, 1966. Used ... $12.99
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
