Lo BorgesLo Borges (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An incredible album from Lo Borges – one of the best singer/songwriters on the Brazilian scene of the 70s! Borges first burst into the spotlight for his work on the Club Da Esquina album by Milton Nascimento – and his work as part of Milton's "corner club" really helped shape the style of the more famous singer. Yet Borges is almost an equally great talent on his own – with a soaring, soulful approach that's every bit as great as the best Nascimento material from the period – and recorded in a wonderfully similar spirit! The sound here is completely sublime right from the start – music that moves us, even if we can't understand the language of the lyrics – like some of the best work by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. There's maybe a bit more guitar than on some of the Milton Nascimento work of the period – but used in a fuzzy way that slides in nicely with some of the jazzy phrasing of the instrumentation – which is delivered with help from key contemporaries who include Beto Guedes, Nelson Angelo, Toninho Horta, and Tenorio Jr. The songwriting is amazing – and titles include "Cancao Postal", "Voce Fica Melhor Assim", "Nao Foi Nada", "Calibre", "Faca Seu Jogo", "Toda Essa Agua", "Pensa Voce", "Como O Machando", and "Aos Baroes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus lyric insert too!)

✨✧ Lo BorgesO Trem Azul ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of work from the legendary Lo Borges – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! Lo Borges is perhaps best known to the world for his incredible vocals on Milton Nascimento's classic Clube Da Esquina album – and he's a great artist on his own, too – always working with the mixture of soul and sophistication that you'd know from his Nascimento collaborations. This sweet little set brings together 14 tracks from Lo Borges' EMI years – some great solo tracks, plus collaborations with Toniho Horta and Milton Nascimento – titles that include "O Trem Azul", "Paisagem De Janela", "Voce Fica Melhor Assim", "Equatorial", "Nuvem Cigana", "Clube Da Esquina No 2", "Todo Prazer", "A Forca Do Vento", and his heavenly solo reading of "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser".

CeliaCelia (1970) ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About March 22, 2019
Wickedly cool work from this overlooked Brazilian singer – a record that's got a strong sense of soul in the grooves, and a great sense of imagination in the choice of songs! Celia sings early work by Joyce, Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, and others – with these shifting arrangements from the likes of Arthur Verocai, Rogerio Duprant, and Jose Briamonte – all in a mish-mash of modes that sometimes echoes the funky styles on EMI/Odeon of the period, sometimes even hits at Tropicalia touches – especially when guitarist Elody is given full run in the music to do his thing! Titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney", "Fotograma", "Adeus Batucada", "To Be", "David", "Durango Kid", "Zozo Como E Que E", and "Lennon McCartney". CD

Francis HimePau Brasil ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
An early moment of genius from the great Francis Hime – a relatively understated Brazilian singer at his start, but a talent who's gone on to have a huge impact on the more sophisticated side of his nation's music over the years! The approach here is maybe a bit in the Lo Borges camp – well-written, well-arranged songs that have a current of soulful, personal energy – but also reach for some larger ideas at the same time – definitely that strong legacy that came from the work of Milton Nascimento. As with Nascimento, there's some warmly soulful currents in the music, and some nice jazzy touches too – and the set includes all Hime originals, but some co-written with Vinicius De Moraes, Chico Buarque, and Olivia Hime! Titles include "Embarcacao", "Mente", "Rio Negro", "A Grande Ausente", "Luar Do Japao", "Caca Cancao", "Rio Vermelho", and "Lingua De Trapo". CD

Milton NascimentoClube Da Esquina 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $54.99
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the previous set are in place here – including the sublime Lo Borges on vocals, Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on bass and guitar – but the set also features contributions from other Brazilian talents – including Chico Buarque on vocals, Ed Maciel on trombone, Paulo Jobim on guitar, and even Azimuth on a bit of grooves! As with the first set, the mix of modes is amazing – all the rich, soulful qualities of Milton Nascimento's best early work – but delivered in a magnificently collaborative mode that never wastes a minute of the extended double-length space of the album. As before, songs are penned by most of the collaborators – and titles include "E Dai", "Pao E Agua", "Canoa Canoa", "Credo", "Nascente", "Meu Menino", "Que Bom Amigo", and "Dona Olimpia".

✨✧ Elis ReginaElis (1980) (aka Vento Do Maio) (with bonus track) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty sweet album by Elis Regina – and one of the last she ever did! The arrangements have a bit more of an electric jazz sound than usual – but they actually give her voice a nice sound, and create some nice lush soulful tracks that have a very sweet sound. Cesar Mariano is still on keyboards, and as always, his work is extremely sympathetic to Elis' vocal style – with just the right balance of darkness and light to make things come out beautifully! Tracks include "Vento De Maio", which has some vocals by Lo Borges, plus "So Seus E Quem Sabe", "Aprendendo A Jogar", "Nova Estacao", and "Rebento". CD features the bonus track "Se Eu Quiser Falar Com Deus". CD

Milton NascimentoMilton Nascimento (1969) ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Maybe one of the first truly brilliant albums from Milton Nascimento – a set that builds on the excellent previous work by the singer/songwriter, but which also has him moving into much more soulful territory as well! Nascimento's work is one of the true treasures of Brazilian music of the past 50 years – and here, it finds a perfect place between larger arrangements, jazzy inflections, and some earthier instrumental touches that keep him tied to the earth – a really careful balance of modes that Milton would not only explore more deeply on key albums to come, but which would become a touchstone for a whole generation of artists as well. The arrangements are wonderful – done by Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame) and saxophonist Paulo Moura – and songs include originals by Milton, plus titles by Dori Cayammi, Toninho Horta, Fernando Brant, and Marcio Borges. Titles include "Sentinela", "Tarde", "Pai Grande", "Quatro Luas", and "Sunset Marquis 333 Los Angeles". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s green label pressing – in nice shape!)
