Banda MetalurgiaBanda Metalurgia ... LP
Som Da Gente (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A nice little 80s Brazilian jazz session, very much in the strong tradition of the Som Da Gente label. The group has a tight sax/trumpet frontline (hence the "metalurgia" name), but the overall groove is backed by some very tight percussion that goes into the batucada realm at times, and which has a nice choppy fusion feel at others. Cuts include "Em Tempos De Baeta", "Ermelindo E Casanova", "Multinacional", "Impulso", and "Amerelo". LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato & AirtoDeodato In Concert – Live At The Felt Forum ... LP
CTI, 1974. Near Mint- ... $8.99
An excellent little live set from Deodato – hard to believe because the sound's just as tight and funky as his studio albums, and possibly even more interesting because he manages to pull it off equally well in a live setting! The record features percussion by Airto, guitar by John Tropea, and vocals by Flora Purim – and those are just the marquee names of a large and amazing grew of great musicians! All tracks are long and complicated, for very hynotic feel throughout. The funkiest number is "Tropea", which has a nice long 8 minute groove – and the set also features a cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again", plus the tracks "Parana", "Branches", "Baubles, Bangles And Beads" and "Skyscraper". Amazing! (Jazz, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album

Jackson Do PandeiroAnos 60 (A Braza No Norte/O Cabra Da Peste/Jackson Do Pandeiro E Sucesso/Mais Um Pouquinho Raridades) (4CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $49.99 63.99
A great samba artist from the Brazilian scene – represented here by three full albums from the 60s, plus a bonus disc of rare material well! Jackson Do Pandeiro takes his name from the percussion instrument used in his music – kind of a bigger, more drum-like tambourine – used to emphasize the vocals alongside Jackson's soulful lead vocal style! The music here is a bit fuller than 70s samba – larger orchestrations at times, but matched with equally great percussion – so that the rootsy core of the music is preserved overall. And, given Jackson's style of singing, you might even be able to call these sides precursors to later soulful samba-styled work by artists like Wilson De Simonal or Jorge Ben – a vibe that's not that different, just a few notches back historically. 4CD set includes the full albums A Braza No Norte, O Cabra Da Peste, and Jackson Do Pandeiro E Sucesso – plus a bonus CD of 17 rare tracks!

Astrud GilbertoWindy ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the hardest to find Astrud Gilberto records on Verve – and one of the best! Deodato, Don Sebesky, and Pat Williams did the arrangements – and the sound here is a bit different than some of the straighter Gilberto sets of the time – still very bossa-inspired, but also in a style that mixes in some great Sunshine Pop and 60s easy influences too – particularly on the tracks arranged by Williams! Tracks are all quite short, but get a heck of a lot of magic into a tiny space – and the album features some really wonderful songs that break Gilberto's pattern a bit – including versions of the Marcos Valle tracks "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" and "Chup Chup, I Got Away" – plus takes on "Windy", "Sing Me A Rainbow", "Never My Love", and "Where Are They Now?" CD
(Part of the Bossa Nova 60th Celebration series!)

Hal's Hobbits/Made In BrasilHal's Hobbits/Crickets Sing For Anamaria ... 7-inch
Hal's Music Center, Mid 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A rare single from this legendary Bay Area Brazilian group – one that was only issued on a small pressing by a local music store! Side one features "Hal's Hobbits" – the story of how some Hobbits formed Hal's Music Center – a pretty goofy spoken bit. But side two features an early cut by bossa maestro Victor M – a totally great take on the Marcos Valle tune "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" (Os Grilos) – with great vocals from a female singer, a sweet flute solo near the end, and lots of driving percussion! (Funky 45's, Brazil) 7-inch, Vinyl record

KassinRelax (with bonus download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy ... $19.99 20.99
We admire the hell out of Kassin, but it's hard to imagine that we'd relax when faced with a new record of his – as we always pay fervent attention to everything he ever does! And this time around, that attention is rewarded even more than usual – as the musician and studio genius emerges a bit more from the background than usual – finally putting his face on the cover (sort of!), and really showing off his talents as both a singer and songwriter! Yet as with all of Kassin's other work – including his famous collaborations with Domenico and Moreno Veloso, his time in Orquesta Imperial, and his projects with bigger names in Brazilian music – there's always this understated quality that makes the whole thing even more charming than if Kassin was overstating his talents. Kassin is one of the few contemporary Brazilian artists to really live up to the genius of the golden years that gave us talents like Marcos Valle, Edu Lobo, or Caetano Veloso – and his sense of songwriting, presentation, and overall structure here is wonderful – making the album an instant classic in Brazilian music. Titles include "Seria O Donut", "Comprimidos Demais", "Estricnina", "Momento De Clareza", "O Anestesista", "Su Sugestao", "Enquanto Desaba O Mundo", and "As Coisa Que Nos Nao Fizemos".

Baiano & Os Novos CaetanosBaiano & Os Novos Caetanos (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
CID/Far Out (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A very weird record – and an odd parody of both Os Novos Baianos and Caetano Veloso! The album's recorded live, and it's very much in the spirit of early work by Os Novos Baianos – with loads of tunes that have a funky samba style, with some nice rough touches – but there's also a laugh track to the set, clearly marking the record as a comedy effort! From what we know, the set's a parody of the artists named in the title, and their laidback approach to music – but since we can't really understand the lyrics, we just enjoy the grooves – as the record's got plenty of strong rootsy groovers that stand out, even if you can't get the jokes! Titles include "Ciranda", "Vo Bate Pa Tu", "Nega", "Cidadao Da Mata", "Folia De Rei", and "Dendalei". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenBig Ben (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

✨✧ Charlie ByrdBossa Nova Pelos Passaros (20 bit master) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
Guitarist Charlie Byrd was one of the first American players to record bossa nova tunes – but although his work with Stan Getz has always been well-documented, some of the titles under his own name can be quite hard to come by. This is one of the best ones that Charlie cut on his own – and it features tight guitar work in a mode that's similar to that used by Baden Powell on his early bossa recordings, augmented by trio rhythms – plus some occasional larger backings by Walter Raim, and some extended group settings that feature Charlie Hampton on alto, Earl Swope on trombone, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion. Tracks include "Ho Ba La La", "Samba Triste", "Yvone", "O Barquinho", "Un Abraco Do Bonfa", and "O Passaro". CD features 6 bonus tracks too! (Jazz, Brazil) CD

Charlie ByrdLatin Byrd ... LP
Milestone, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
A collection that Milestone issued in 1973 that includes tracks from three of Byrd's early 60s Bossa Nova records – Latin Impressions, Bossa Nova Pelos Passaros and Once More/Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova. Byrd and his unamplified guitar are joined by Keter Betts on bass and Bill Reichenbach on drums and Latin percussion; other players are also featured. The tracks are mainly composed by the big names of Bossa Nova – Jobim, Powell, Caymmi, Lyra – but there are several Byrd originals as well such as "Socegadamente (Softly)", "Cancao De Nimar Para Carol", "Three Note Samba", and "Ela Me Deixou". Other tracks include "Samba Triste", "Desafinado", "Saudade Da Bahia", "Carnaval" and many others. (Jazz, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album

Domenico (Domenico Lancellotti)Good Is A Big God ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
You've heard Domenico before as part of the groundbreaking +2 trio with Kassin and Moreno Veloso – but this is only the second time the singer has worked on his own, and the first that he's given us his full name on the cover! That difference might mark a new sort of confidence in Domenico – a way of putting forth his careful songwriting genius with a bit more dexterity, which certainly gets a bit of assistance in the album's work by Sean O'Hagan and Kassin! If you've ever liked Domenico before, you'll totally love him here – and if this is your first time discovering his music, then get ready to go backwards – as the strength of this album will win over your ears, and send you searching for all the other wonderful music he's given us over the years. Titles include the very dreamy title cut "The Good Is A Big God" – plus "Insatiable", "Serra Dos Orgaos", "Voltar Se", "A Alma Do Vento", "Terra", "Logo", "Dama Da Noite", "Shanti Luz", "Arvores", and "pare De Correr".

Forro In The DarkSandcastle ... CD
Nacional, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 9.99
Forro In The Dark sound better here than ever before – working with producer Kassin, on a set of tracks recorded both in Brooklyn and in Rio – with a vibe that's maybe more faithful to their Brazilian inspiration than any of their previous records! The core trio handle a fantastic amount of percussion, guitar, and reed instruments – with modes that start with the forro of their name, but also branch out into other Brazilian styles – and have some of the captivating qualities of the best independent acts from Brazil in recent years. Kassin plays on most of the record, about half the tracks feature vocals, and titles include "I Wanna Know", "Forro Da Casa Grande", "Ou Sim", "Roca De Pedra", "Craudineia No Forro", "Voce Nao E Insubstituviel", and "Drifting Away".

Gilberto Gil & Milton NascimentoGil & Milton ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $6.99
A groovy set of duets between two of Brazil's greatest singers – done in a mostly stripped-down setting that leaves a strong focus on the amazing vocals of the duo! Most tracks are done in a style that begins with either singer taking the lead on the first verse or two before handing things off to the other vocalist. There's a few clunkers on here that you might want to avoid – but overall, there's plenty of nice moments, especially on the more soulful songs, which really bring out the best in Nascimento's voice. Titles include "Bom Dia", "Duas Sanfonas", "Dora", "Xica Da Silva", "Dinamarca", "Baiao Da Garoa", and "Yo Vengo A Ofrecer Mi Corazon". CD
