Hamilton De HolandaCasa De Bituca – The Music Of Milton Nascimento (CD & DVD) ... CD
Adventure Music, 2017. New Copy CD & DVD ... $12.99 15.99
We've always loved albums by Hamilton De Holanda – but here, it really feels like there's something different and special going on – maybe in part because the songs are all classics by Milton Nascimento, but also because there's this fantastic core energy of the group – which sounds like it would really sparkle, no matter what the tunes! Hamilton plays 10 string mandolin, and vocalizes a bit – in a quintet that features guitar, drums, electric bass, and harmonica – the last of which is played by Gabriel Grossi, and soars through the tunes and creates these beautiful waves of color, almost acting like a single instrument representing the larger charts in the original Nascimento recordings – with a sense of tone that recalls similar performances by Toots Thielemans or Mauricio Einhorn. Nascimento adds his vocals to two especially great tunes – and titles include "Vera Cruz", "Travessia", "Cancao Da America", "Bicho Homem", "Bola De Mei Bola De Gude", "Cluba Da Esquinha No 2", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Ponta De Areia". Comes with a bonus DVD, too! CD

Hamilton De HolandaBrasilianos ... CD
Adventure Music, 2006. Used ... $2.99
Beautiful work from Brazilian mandolin player Hamilton De Holanda – working here on a 10-stringed version of his instrument, in a sound that's warmly emotive and filled with imagination! The overall groove is quite gentle – but Hamilton's strings leap out with soaring energy on the best numbers – stepping forth from the quintet backing that includes acoustic guitar, electric bass, drums, and harmonica – the latter of which gives an especially evocative quality to the record. Titles include "Cacua", "Baiao Brasil", "Brasilianos", "Pedra Da Macumba", "Minor Pain", "Forever", and "Longing For The Future". CD

Toninho Horta & Nicola StiloDuets ... CD
Adventure Music, 2005. New Copy ... $8.99 15.98
The guitar of Toninho Horta is always a treat, but on this album it's made even better by some lyrically light flute work from Nicola Stilo! The set's got a dreamy quality that really gets at the gentler sound of Horta's work on guitar – and a few tunes even feature his vocals, singing in a laidback way that has echoes of the earlier bossa era, but a more gently jazzy approach overall. Stilo plays a variety of flutes on the set, and titles include a great version of Coltrane's "Naima", plus "Very Early", "Vento", "My Ideal", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Meu Canario", "Bons Amigos", and "Illusion".

Tom Lellis & The Metropole OrchestraSkylark ... CD
Adventure Music, 2009. New Copy ... $2.99 15.99
The richest album we've heard so far from vocalist Tom Lellis – a well-done set that has the overlooked singer backed strongly by the Metropole Orchestra! Given the setting, the album reminds us a bit of recent Verve dates from Mark Murphy – a sound that's timeless, yet not in any sort of easy too-standard way – very fresh charts for the orchestral backings, and heartfelt lyrics from Lellis that are never lost in the larger setting. Some tunes sparkle with creative changes in the vocals, while others are delivered in straighter ballad modes – both forms that Tom handles perfectly – and titles include "Mountain Flight", "Milton's Moment", "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Love Is", "Straight Up & Down", and "Taken To Heart".

Mike Marshall & Darol AngerChiaroscuro ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1985. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
An overlooked gem from that moment when the acoustic underground of the 70s was sometimes getting lost amidst the new age deluge of the 80s – even though all of the best musicians still their best talents intact! Mike Marshall is one of those musicians – working here on mandolin and guitars alongside violinist Darrol Anger – in a warmly wonderful partnership that forges new roads ahead in instrumental music – pushing past some of the coldness of the post-jazz inventions of the ECM generation, and maybe finding a more American space in the process. Both of the leaders play a bit of keyboards – but hardly much at all – and the group does feature electric bass from Michael Manring – but these non-acoustic elements are really just used as shading around the edges, and still leave plenty of focus on the string performances that really make the record great. Titles include "Dolphins", "Dardanelles", "Bach Bouree", "Beloved Infidel", "Saurian's Farewell", and "Spring Gesture". Really great 2015 remaster – excellent sound and package – way better than the Windham Hill releases in the 80s! CD
(Great version – with much better mastering than the previous CD issue!)

Daniel SantiagoMetropole ... CD
Adventure Music, 2009. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
A jazz album at heart, but one with some distinct Brazilian touches too – a warm blend of the guitar lines of Daniel Santiago with reeds from Josue Lopez and piano from Vitor Goncalves – all wrapped up in a set of rich flowing rhythms! There's some of the sensitivity here that you might have heard on the best indie Brazilian jazz sides from the 80s – some of those smaller label sets we always dug so much – and the guitar and sax (either tenor or soprano, depending on the track) have a great way of dancing around each other – creating some magical interplay over the piano, bass, and drums. Titles include "Gregorian Samba", "Old City", "In The Rain", "Letter To The World", "Children Of The War", "Lagoon", and "Angola's Dance". CD

✨✧ Darol Anger & Barbara HigbieTideline ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Piano and violin come together beautifully here – the former by Barbara Higbie, the latter by Darrol Anger – who also plays mandolin and cello as well! There's an acoustic balance here that's more jazz than some of the other Windham Hill albums of the time – especially in the music's sense of rhythm and phrasing – and the rich acoustic tones of both players get wonderfully past some of the new age cliches that are too-often wrongly associated with the label – and remind us that at their best, records like these offer up a key flowering of the acoustic underground of the 70s. Mike Marshall plays guest mandolin on one title – and tracks include "Movie", "Tideline", "Above The Fog", "True Story", "Onyame", and "Gemini". Really great 2015 remaster – excellent sound and package – way better than the Windham Hill releases in the 80s! CD

✨✧ Moacir SantosChoros & Alegria ... CD
Adventure Music, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first full album in years from the legendary Moacir Santos – and a beautiful little album that's filled with all the deep feeling and inventive arrangement of his older work! As the title might imply, the set borrows song structure and spirit from the Brazilian choro tradition – reworked here by Santos with his angular approach to rhythm and jazzy approach to instrumentation – so that the tunes slide warmly into one another, moving with a fluid, organic sense that we really like a lot. For the sessions, Santos pulled together a host of jazz and more traditional musicians – blending modes nicely to further enforce the creative spirit of the session, and mostly focusing on the instrumentation, but also occasionally offering a nice vocal as well. Titles are all originals, written over the course of Santos' lifetime – and titles include "Paraiso", "Outra Coisa", "Agora Eu Sei", "Ricaom", "Saudade De Jacques", "Cleonix", "Felipe", "Carroussel", and "Samba Diamante".

✨✧ Moacir SantosOuro Negro ... CD
Adventure Music, 1960s/1970s/1990s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD

✨✧ Double Deckers/Ivor SlaneyDouble Deckers – Musical Merriment From The Original Soundtrack Of The Delightful Children's TV Adventure ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A kiddie show, but one with some distinctly Sunshine Pop touches – thanks to arrangements from lesser-known maestro Ivor Slaney! The Double Deckers was a late 60s British TV program that was something of an update of the older Our Gang films of the 30s – and true to the spirit of the times, the overall feel was a lot groovier, with a fair bit of songs in the episodes all sung by various younger members of the cast! The tracks were penned by a variety of different lyricists, and set to music by Slaney – and they've all got sunny, positive themes that remind us a lot of the best musical bits from The Bugaloos, HR Puffenstuff, or some of the other American kid shows of the time. CD features 11 tracks, in all, plus full notes on the show and music – with titles that include "Get On Board", "I Gotta Get Through", "With A Little Bit Of Love", "Good Day At Yellowrock", "Fat Ladies", "Welcome To The Party", "One Man Band", and "Grannie's Rocking Chair".

✨✧ Vanishing TwinChoose Your Own Adventure ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Malcolm Catto is at the production helm for this sweet debut set from Vanishing Twin – and you can definitely hear his touches in the music – which is often funky and trippy at the same time! The group themselves have kind of a fuzz-frequency vibe that lies somewhere between late 60s French pop psych, and maybe the revived analogue modes of the 90s – with echoey drums, swirling organ and keyboard lines, and vocals that seem nicely compressed down into the mix – but in a way that gives them more Silver Apples-like power. But there's also some moodier, spookier moments too – almost soundtrack elements from time to time, especially at the more obtuse instrumental points – which almost feel like they could have come from a Finders Keepers reissue. Titles include "Under The Water", "Eggs", "Truth Is Boring", "Choose Your Own Adventure", "Telescope", "Vanishing Twin Syndrome", and "The Conservation Of Energy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousModern Northern Soul ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary cuts that burn with a classic flavor – all served up by 21st Century artists who draw a lot of inspiration from the Northern Soul sound of the 60s! The album focuses mostly on British artists, and also serves as a great reminder of the way that scene in the 60s helped bring a whole new level of appreciation for American soul music – as young mods picked up on key soul singles from the US, and created a level of support that's continued to have an impact for years to come! Because of that, there's also maybe a bit of a mod vibe to some of these songs – but in the more soulful side of the mod spectrum – as with 60s Brit groups who had no problem blending influences from Ray Charles and Jimmy McGriff with more blue-eyed musical leanings. The production is great – at the level you'd expect from Acid Jazz – and titles include "Are You Trying To Be Lonely" by Paul Weller & Andy Lewis, "From Now On" by Magnus Carlson, "Left Right & Centre" by Lord Large & Dean Parris, "Girlfriend" by The Filthy Six, "Pandora" by Men Of North Country, "Can't Get You Outta My Head" by Third Degree, "She's An Attraction" by New Street Adventure, "Alive In My Heart" by Andy Lewis with Keni Burke, "Coming Back" by Smoove with Jess Roberts, and "No More Heroes" by Night Trains.

✨✧ Hamilton De HolandaWorld Of Pixinquinha ... CD
Adventure, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gorgeous tribute to the genius of the great Pixinguinha – headed by bandolim player Hamilton De Holanda, and featuring a top-shelf array of guests that includes Richard Galliano, Chucho Valdes, Omar Sosa, Stefano Bollani, and Wynton Marsalis! Given Pixinguinha's more familiar expressions on reeds – the approach here is a really nice change, and quite different than other tributes to his music over the years – very personal and poetic in the way that Hamilton approaches the tunes, and given extra special inflections by the guests. Most numbers are just duo tracks, without any larger instrumentation – which takes the choro form to its roots, on titles that include "Naquele Tempo", "Ingenuo", "Rosa", "Seu Lourenco No Vinho", "Capricho De Pixinguinha", "Cancao Da Odalisca", and "Um A Zero".

✨✧ Monday MichiruPortraits In Time – 2002 to 2013 ... CD
Adventure, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful portrait of Monday Michiru – one of our favorite singers of the past 20 years – equally well-versed in jazz, soul, and Brazilian modes – all of which come together on this collection of very well-chosen and overlooked tracks! The special 2CD package brings together music from some of Monday's smaller label and under-distributed titles – including a number of import-only selections, a few collaborations with other artists, and a really wonderful array of tunes that show just how much Michiriu has grown since she first started out! Monday hit some great fame in the mid 90s in Japan – but during recent years, she's been living in the US mostly, and really working on her craft away from the limelight – opening up with expressive jazz inflections that rival some of her best inspirations of previous decades, while still holding onto the richly soulful power that brought her some strong early attention. If you've missed hearing Monday at all, this set is a great introduction – and even if you've followed her as closely as we have, we'll bet that there's some tracks here you might not have in your collection. 23 tracks in all – including "Dreams Of Tomorrow", "Mi Vida", "Sometimes", "One (Alter Ego version)", "Generations", "Epiphany", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Nexus Interlude", "Hung Up", "Genetic Imprints", "Just Be Good To Me", "No Matter What", "Belle O Byron Bay (Bluey mix)", "No Answer", "The Cosmic Laws", and "Cut To The Chase".

✨✧ Sal MaidaFour Strings, Phony Proof & 300 45s – Adventures From Roxy Music, Sparks & Milk N Cookies ... Book
HoZac, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing little memoir by NYC born & bred bass player Sal Maida – hardly a household name, but a guy whose story ought to be known – having gone from an obsessive music fan and card carrying member of the Sparks International Fan Club to actually playing IN Sparks, but not until after some time playing bass in Roxy Music, and co-founding east coast power pop should-be legends Milk 'N' Cookies! His story and adventures don't begin or end in any of those situations, though. He's done session work in loads of Kim Fowley productions and all kinds of great stuff with fascinating characters, and while he could be forgiven for laying out his story by bragging, he never really does that here, starting out as a New York's Little Italy-bred Anglophile who kept finding himself and more and more interesting situations, but was first a starstruck fan. Written in his charming voice, and filled with his own photos and more. Paperback, 175+ pages and with a forward by Lenny Kaye. Book

Native (Wayne Jobson)Rockstone – Native's Adventures With Lee Perry At The Black Ark – September 1977 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A rare moment from the hazy final days of the Black Ark – deeply dark grooves from Native, and a set that's got a surprisingly strong story too – as told in the detailed liner notes! Lee Scratch Perry works his mystical magic on the then largely unknown Wayne Jobson's Native – and the rhythms and songs here are every bit as solid as you'd hope for from a late 70s Black Ark album – with final touches that were laid on at Randy's, Harry J's, Channel One and Dynamic – even though the music lay unreleased for decades! In addition to Native, Jobson recruits the Black Disciples for backing – and the vibe is deep, dark and heavy throughout – as some tracks are nearly fully dubbed out, while others have the rhythms snapping crisply underneath. Titles include "Rockstone", "Black Tracks", "In A Strange Land", "Late September In May", "King Solomon's Mine", "In The Land Of Make Believe", and "Meet Mr Nobody". CD

✨✧ Minnie RipertonStay In Love – A Romantic Fantasy Set To Music ... LP
Epic, 1977. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Along with Perfect Angel and Adventures In Paradise, this is one of the key albums of Minnie's career – recorded when she was at the height of her power, forging a whole new soul sound that mixed her incredible voice with jazzy modern arrangements that were a few years ahead of most of the other singers at her level. The album's subtitled "A Romantic Fantasy Set To Music", and it features a swirling mix of ballads and uptempo tunes – all with a sexy sound, and some of the most seductive vocals that Minnie ever recorded. Includes the club groover "Young Willing & Able", plus "Can You Feel What I'm Saying?", "Gettin' Ready for Your Love", "Could It Be I'm In Love", and the great "Stick Together", written with Stevie Wonder.

✨✧ Ray Brown & Quincy JonesAdventurers ... LP
Symbolic, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare groover from the team of Ray Brown and Quincy Jones – a smoking little set that completely revises the music for The Adventurers! The original score for the film featured tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, played by Deodato – a great combination at the time, but completely different than the heavy funk laid out here by Ray and Quincy! The pair really cook things up strongly here – hitting some of the best funky vibes you'd hear on Quincy Jones scores from the late 60s and early 70s – or some of Ray Brown's funkiest jazz sessions of the time. Brown leads the band, and the set's produced by Quincy – who also arranged some tracks – with help from JJ Johnson, Tom Scott, and Jimmy Jones too. Titles include "Fat Cat Strut", "Polo Pony", "El Lobo's Marc", "Wishful Thinking", "Love Theme From The Adventurers", and "Go Down Dying". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A very early US release of work by Ravi Shankar – originally part of Columbia's "Adventures In Sound" series, a mixed mood music/world music imprint that offered up some excellent work in its day! The set begins with a compelling "Introduction To Indian Music" – spoken by Ravi himself over the course of a few minutes, with bits of instrumentation used to illustrate his points. Shankar's sitar is in a trio with tabla and tambura – and after that spoken introduction, the record then moves into four longer trance-like tracks – "Dadra", "Maru Bihag", "Bhimpalasi", and "Sindhi Bhairavi".

Sugar Hill/Sanctuary (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best tracks ever from one of the most important record labels in the early years of hip hop! Sugarhill might not have been the first to record the sounds of the South Bronx scene, but the label definitely helped the music get huge national exposure – to a point where it was maybe one of the key factors in helping hip hop to find the right sort of larger American audience at the time! Years later, most of these cuts are still formative classics – and the set's overflowing with gems that include "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang, "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, "That's The Joint" by Funky Four + One, "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel, "Apachey" by Sugarhill Gang, "We Got The Funk" by Positive Force, "Yes We Can Can" by Treacherous Three, "Scratching" by Crash Crew, "Break Dance Electric Boogie" by West Street Mob, "Funk You Up" by Sequence, "Adventures On The Wheels Of Steel" by Grandmaster Flash, "8th Wonder" by Sugarhill Gang, "It's Nasty" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, and "Step Off" by The Furious Five.

A really fantastic little record – one that has David Bowie singing lyrics penned by Bertolt Brecht – the famous German playwright, and an artist whose style is a perfect fit for the darker side of Bowie! The material came out in the early 80s, but it's almost got a vibe that would have made it perfect for the Berlin years – not that it's electronic, as there's a lot more warmth in the production, but just because the mood of the music fits that period strongly. Selections include "Remembering Marie A", "Ballad Of The Adventurers", "Dirty Song", and "The Drowned Girl". Very cool 10" pressing – done with the gatefold that was on the original UK 7" single. 12-inch, Vinyl record

John KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $0.99
Nothing too mad from reedman John Klemmer – but a set that nicely continues that spacey sound that Klemmer first created at Impulse Records, then moved into some warmer, more soulful territory on records like this! Klemmer's still got an incredibly strong sound on tenor – rich and full, and never held back at all – nor prone to some of the more gimmicky flourishes of some of his mainstream contemporaries – and the setting is never too slick or overdone, which seems to suit John just right! Keyboards work nicely in a mellow, spaced-out groove – and Klemmer crackles these effortless lines out in space – of the soulful style we first fell in love with on his earliest work for Chess. The set features guitar from John Tropea, keyboards from Don Grusin, and drums from Harvey Mason – and Klemmer even vocalizes a bit – in a surprisingly strong style for the music. Titles include "Magnificent Madness", "Deja Vu", "Lifesong", "Adventures In Paradise", "I Can't Help It", and "Don't Take Your Love Away". LP, Vinyl record album

A totally fresh take on French sounds of the late 60s – served up here with a sound that's as revolutionary as the image on the cover! This isn't the dreamy strings of familiar Paris in the Spring – but instead, the sound of change that happened in and around 1968 – as a whole new generation of younger French musicians, singers, artists, and intellectuals were really making themselves known in bold new ways! You'll recognize a few names here – like Serge Gainsbourg or Brigitte Fontaine – but the collection goes way beyond those bigger names, and features loads of obscure artists from the scene that will be a real revelation. The collection was done by the same Saint Etienne team that gave us the excellent English Weather and Songs For The Carnegie Deli compilations on Ace – and titles include "L'Elu" by Ilous & Decuyper, "La Metaphore" by Jacques Dutronc, "Looking For You" by Nin Ferrer, "Chanson D'Un Jour D'Hiver" by Cortex, "Couleurs" by Leonie, "Leslie Simone" by William Sheller, "Litanies" by Triangle, "Baleines" by Francois De Roubaix, "Lileth" by Leonie, "Ystor" by Ys, "Chanson Pour Que Tu M'Aimes U Peu" by France Gall, "Le Victime" by Karl Heinz Schafer, "Les Adventures Extraordinaires D'Un Ballet De Banque" by Bernard Lavilliers, "Helicoptere" by Mireille Darc, "Les Garde Violent Au Secours Du Roi (alt version)" by Jean Claude Vannier, and "La Chanson D'Helene" by Romy Schneider & Michel Piccoli.

Fire (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The second fantastic set from this seminal group from the early 80s UK scene – a combo who might have been punk at the core, but also worked with a smattering of mod influences – ala The Jam – but also weren't afraid to get a bit psychedelic at times too – in ways that make them key precursors to the whole Creation Records scene, and all the changes in British rock to come later in the decade! The album's got a fantastic balance between musical darkness and the group's inherent sense of wit – served up in ways that are as intrinsically British as the Kinks were in the late 60s, but with all the short, sharp sound of the post-punk generation. Titles include "Painting By Numbers", "David Hockney Diaries", "Adventure Playground", "A Day In Heaven", "Scream Quietly", "Brian's Magic Car", and "If I Could Write Poetry". LP, Vinyl record album
