✨✧ Sergio MendesIn Person At El Matador/Pele/Sergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
3 different Sergio Mendes albums on 2 CDs! In Person At El Matador is a live one by Sergio Mendes, recorded with Wanda De Sah and Rosinha De Valenca, in the years before he formed the Brasil '66 group that recorded on A&M. The record's a nice batch of bossa jazz tracks – and it features some instrumentals with Sergio and a tight group, plus a few vocal tracks by the ladies. The set's got a nice groove, and is much more like Sergio's earlier bossa stuff that was on Capitol in the US, and Philips in Brazil. Tracks include "Tem Do De Mim", "Noa Noa", "Caminho De Casa", and "Arrastao". Hard to find in the original, and nice to have on reissue! Pele is a nice soundtrack that features Sergio Mendes' score to a film that starred football great Pele, made at the height of his career! The music's got the range of sounds that you'd expect from a soundtrack – with some mellow cuts, and some more uptempo ones, but the mix is great, and the sound is nice and Braziliany, with some good electric moments. Pele sings vocals on one version of the title cut "My World Is A Ball", and Gerry Mulligan solos on another version of it. Cuts include "Big City", "Sadness of Goodbye", and "Na Bahia". Sergio Mendes' Favorite Things is a very very groovy instrumental album by one of the giants of the bossa nova era! The album has Sergio Mendes in more of a jazz setting than his Brasil '66 LPs, with lots of nice electric grooves and keyboard lines, plus some driving orchestral backing. The set includes a stunning version of "Ponteio" – plus other Brazilian groovers like "A Banda", "Veleiro", and "Tempo Feliz". There's also a few tracks of U.S. pop stuff like "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Comin' Home Baby", done with a nice bossa groove to them. Dave Grusin did the arrangements, and the sound is nice nice nice! 34 cuts in all! (Brazil, Jazz) CD

✨✧ VariousSounds From The Verve Hi Fi – Compiled By Thievery Corporation ... CD
Verve, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An extremely groovy batch of tunes – compiled from the catalog of Verve (and related labels), selected to perfection by Thievery Corporation! These guys have a great reputation for crafting new grooves with a classic sound – and they've no doubt arrived at that talent after a long study of older tracks. Thus, it's no surprise that they've been turned loose on the Verve catalog to pick out some of their favorites – tunes that the stodgy ol' reissue producers would have passed up, were it not for them! Titles include "Escapade" by Wynton Kelly, "The Fakir" by Cal Tjader, "Something Else Again" by Richie Havens, "Chove Chuva" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "Lisa" by Willie Bobo, "For Mods Only" by Chico Hamilton, "Batucada" by Walter Wanderley, "Light My Fire" by Astrud Gilberto, "Samba Triste" by Jackie & Roy, and "Do It The Hard Way" by The Jazz Renegades.

Made In Brasil with Victor MNumero Um ... LP
Nucleus, 1975. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals – kind of in a Sergio Mendes 70s style, or in the mode of some of Marcos Valle's more electric work – and although the tunes are mostly familiar numbers like "Reza", "Agua De Beber", "Zazueira", "Upa Neguinho", and "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", they're done in a mode that's very fresh – kind of a bridge between 60s Brazilian interpretations, and later ones by recent groups!
