CelesteCinco E Triste Da Manha ... CD
Tapecar/Amazon (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy ... $2.99
Moody female vocals from Brazil – a great early 70s album with a dreamy feel and a nice electric touch! In a way, the album's a fair bit like the Ana Mazzotti album from the same period, with a mix of some funky scatting vocal numbers, and other tunes that are more laidback, but which fit very nicely next to the uptempo cuts. Arrangements on some of the best numbers are by Meirelles, with a sweetly groovy electric feel that's similar to some of his own albums from the early 70s. Titles include "Foi Assim", "Como Posso Saber", "Sinal De Solidao", "Teia De Aranha", "Po", "Serrado", "Sonhos", and "Ronda Tristeza". CD

FantasiaSweet Sweet City Rhythm ... LP
Amazon, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
It's getting later in the 70s so the disco movement has taken hold of the mainstream and everyone's trying to get in on the act. This pop disco set features lead vocals by Peggy Santiglia – and it's got strings and horns arranged by John Davis, who may have been responsible for his share of disco cliche's, though here he does a nice job of keeping things tight and right, and the lengthier numbers have some nice dynamic shifts and breakdowns. Titles include "Fantasia/Carnival", "Sweet Sweet City Rhythm", "Go On And Dance To The Music", and "Alice Street". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul LevitzLittle Book Of Wonder Woman (paperback) ... Book
Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... $7.99 9.99
Amazing images from decades of the Amazon princess – pulled from early Wonder Woman comics, publications in the silver age, and lots of later issues as well – all wrapped up in a really beautiful package that hardly deserves the "little" in its title! Instead, this thing pops like a much bigger art book – particularly Taschen's oversized volumes on DC, as this one's handled in a similar, but smaller manner – with wonderfully well-chosen pictures, and running commentary from Paul Levitz – who once ran DC, and has plenty of insight to offer. 190 pages, full color.

Herbie MannFlautista – Herbie Mann Plays Afro-Cuban Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
A gem of a record from a time when flute Mann Herbie was really taking off – a set that shows his growing love of Latin rhythms, which are used to wonderful effect throughout! Mann had been recording straighter chamber jazz a few short years before, but there's a nicely unbridled feel to this record – as the rhythms really take off, the tunes get longer, and Herbie responds with a really jamming style on his flute! The core group is wonderful – and features Johnny Rae on vibes, and Patao Valdez and Jose Mangual on percussion – working with Herbie in a style that's similar to his own appearances on some of Rae's other records. Titles include the long groovy "Cuban Potato Chip", plus "Caravan", "Amazon River", and "Come On Mule" – all of which are also nice and long. Plus, this reissue also adds 2 unreleased bonus cuts – "Delilah" and "Basin Street Este". CD

Ricardo Silveira Organ TrioRicardo Silveira Organ Trio ... CD
Adventure Music, 2014. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
A whole new side of the talents of guitarist Ricardo Silveira, and a great one too – a Hammond-oriented trio outing that's quite different than any of his previous projects to date! We've grown to love Silveira for his sensitive shadings in Brazilian or acoustic projects – but he's a very different player here in an electric setting – maybe even more inventive and expressive, with a range of sounds and care of phrasing that's completely sublime – as is the organ work from Vanessa Rodrigues, a player we've really got to learn more about, because her waves of soul and blocks of sound here are really tremendous – and a very fresh take on this decades-old instrument. The group's completed by Rafael Barata on drums – a nicely subtle player who really lets the guitar and Hammond handle most of the record's creativity – and the 2CD set presents one studio session from the group, and one live outing too – with titles that include an incredible version of "Canto De Ossanha", plus "Cochise", "A Medida Do Meu Coracao", "Batucada", "Amazon River", "Polo Pony", "Eu E A Brisa", and "One Eyed Monster".

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $0.99
A tight set of fusion from Sweetbottom – an American combo who definitely seem to draw a lot from the rock-inspired Euro fusion sound of a few years before! There's also a bit of the PM Records vibe – from the Steve Grossman/Gene Perla camp – lots of sharp, fast changes in the rhythms – and some heavy guitars at points, linking the group to Brand X a bit – and also some vocals on a few cuts, sure to please the rockish audiences who might be straying over to the fusion realm of the spectrum. The set's pretty sweet overall – tight, but without sounding slick – and the drums really drive some of the best numbers. Titles include "Veena Deva", "Monique", "Electro Strut", "Amazon Ritual", "Her", and "Shrapnel In My Ankle". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dona OneteBanzeiro ... LP
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brazilian music from far up the Amazon River – from a place where the sounds are often quite different from those heard in Rio or Sao Paulo – and much more likely to share some elements with the native cultures of the other side of South America, as well as some Caribbean rhythms too! Dona Onete's got a wonderful voice – as rich in spirit and warmth as her image on the cover – and the presentation of her music is nicely stripped-down – well-recorded, but free of any too commercial touches in the production. Titles include "Tipiti", "Banzeiro", "Na Linha Do Arco Iris", and "No Sabor Do Beijo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quarteto NovoQuarteto Novo ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album that changed a generation of Brazilian musicians – a sublime instrumental collaboration between Airto, Hermeto Pascoal, and 2 other great musicians of their generation! The sound is quite unique – almost a modern recasting of older rootsy modes – taken into the complicated jazzy territory of Airto and Pascoal's best work of the early 70s, but done in an even more stripped down mode! Airto plays percussion, Pascoal plays flute, Geraldo Vandre handles guitar, and Theo De Barros is also in the group – and there's a groove that's impossible to describe accurately, but which you'll instantly recognize as archetypal! Includes the legendary tracks "Misturada" and "Vim de Santana" – plus "Sintese", "Canta Maria", "Canto Geral", and "O Ovo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Walter Maioli/Fred Gales/Pit PiccinelliAmazonia 6891 – Sounds From Jungle, Natural Objects, Echo, & Electronic Waves ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very strange little record – one that certainly lives up to its Amazon-related title, but in ways that are quite unusual! The first half of the set features sounds recorded in the jungle, but mixed in the studio – at a level that almost feels more like some obscure electronic experiments – as noises from birds, bugs, and other creatures come across like some sonic waves – repeating and shifting a bit – and reminding us how much similarity there can be between organic and electronic elements! The second half is much more electronic overall, but with lots of field recordings too – living creatures, shells, trees, leaves, stones, and lots more too – all brought together in a really complicated mix of sounds. And yet the whole thing's strangely peaceful, too – like when you're initially tense in a strange environment, then relax into it, once you get the pulse. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cal TjaderAmazonas ... LP
Fantasy, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little Brazilian set from Cal Tjader – quite different than most of his other work of the time! Although Cal spent most of his time at Fantasy Records working in a mixture of jazz and Afro-Cuban styles, he steps off here in a very Brazilian 70s mode – one that has some great links with jazz trends going on in Brazil at the time! Production is by Airto and arrangements are by George Duke – and there's a wonderful crossing of Rio and California in the set – one that uses keyboards from Egberto Gismonti, flute from Hermeto Pascoal, guitars by David Amaro, and trombone from Raul De Souza. Dawilli Gonga nee George Duke plays some especially nice keyboards on the set – and titles include a great version of Joao Donato's "Amazonas", plus the tracks "Mindoro", "Corine", "Noa Noa", and "Cahuenga".

Georges DelerueL'Homme De Rio/Les Tribulations D'un Chinois En Chine ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1963/1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Two great soundtracks by Georges Delerue – both penned for Jean-Paul Belmondo films of the mid 60s! Les Tribulations D'Un Chinois En Chine has a really great style that mixes fake "Chinese" themes with more playful orchestrations – all in a mood that really fits that lightly comedic action of the movie, and which has an extremely evocative feel, even away from the screen! Strings are often arranged in playful ways, and mixed with odd woodwinds – not really authentically Chinese, but that's the appeal! L'Homme De Rio has a stronger Brazilian feel, as you might expect – one that's got bits of batucada, elements of bossa orchestrations, and some of the bolder, more dramatic moments we've come to expect from Delerue! The whole package is great, with lots of images from the films, and notes in both English and French – and a total of 24 tracks that include "Bowling Bresilien", "Batucada/Rapt Au Trocadero", "A La Poursuite De Catalan", "Quelle Adventure", "Mister Goh", "Hong Kong", "Poursuite En Ballon", "Suzy Et Cornelius", and "Choinoiseries" – plus 2 bonus tracks, "Alexandrine Pour Alexandra" and "Amazone".

HilaryJust Before After Hours ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little album of smooth jazzy fusion tracks – often overlooked, and the only release we've ever seen by this obscure female flute player! Hilary clearly comes from a Bobbi Humphrey tradition, and her work here reminds us a lot of Bobbi's later sides for Epic – with large soulful fusion arrangements that give way to leaner solos on most tracks. Wayne Henderson arranged the tunes, Augie Johnson set up the vocal passages, and Bobby Lyle contributed some keyboards to the set – so Hilary's definitely in the company of some heavy hitting talents here – and the set's a surprisingly tasty treat that's largely been underdiscovered over the years! Titles include "Amazona", "So In Love With You", "Sundancers", "Reach For The Stars", and the smooth stepper "Just Before After Hours". LP, Vinyl record album

Clara MondshineLuna Africana ... LP
Great Thunder (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A weird mix of electronics and percussion from the German scene – a set recorded in 1981, but with a freewheeling vibe that's almost more like some of the electronic experiments of the prog years! Clara Mondshine plays a range of keyboards – most with these sounds that are somewhere in the Sky Records styles of the time, but played with a lot looser energy overall – which then allows for contributions from other electronic elements from other participants in the session, and a range of tabla, sitar, gongs, and other percussion too. Things are never too over the top – never as jamming as prog recordings from years back – but there's an open vibe to the record that we really appreciate, not nearly as staid as other German electronics of the time – or as cold as some of the post-punk work. Titles include "Amazonenharfe", "Raga Des Aufgehenden Planeten", "Die Drachentrommmler", and "Lange Melodie Fur Den Countdown". LP, Vinyl record album

Hareton SalvaniniA Virgem De Saint Tropez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fermata/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $32.99
A totally wonderful little soundtrack – Brazilian in origin, but with lots of the lush, warm tones we love in 70s Italian erotic scores too! The style is definitely Brazilian, though – and modes run from some of the cooler, larger arrangements you'd hear from Marcos Valle – especially in his early 70s years – to some moments that are a bit more spare, and mix in rootsy percussion, sweet keyboards, and jazzy touches on Fender Rhodes – which makes for a really wonderful blend of styles! The record's one that we'd rank equally next to our favorite Emi/Odeon grooves from the time – and next to some of our sweetest, grooviest European soundtracks of the early 70s – and titles inclkude "Seios", "Despedida", "Espairecendo", "You Can't Run Away From Your Destiny", "Panorama", "Amazonia", and "Quarto De Hotel".

VariousJapanese Sounds – Produced By DJ Muro ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $28.99
DJ Muro's given us some fantastic collections and mixes over the years – mostly made of vintage work from the 70s, which he really seems to know better than most! Yet this time around, the music is contemporary – all from the Japanese scene, and all produced by Muro himself – but with a very classic, soulful sort of vibe that takes us back to Tokyo groovers of the 70s, or some of the best cuts from the disco generation! Singers are female throughout – and include Pushim, Lyn, Tiger, Keyona, Ramja, Amazons, and Keyco – but the same group of musicians plays on most of the cuts, which creates a very unified vibe, even though things change up in a good way from track to track. Muro's production is wonderful – with a richness that takes us back to rare Japanese soul records of the 70s – and most of the text is in Japanese, or we'd be able to tell you more about the record!

Blue Note (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! And every bit as wonderful as volume one. Put together by the guys at Mr. Bongo, this volume 2 features more rare Brazilian gems from the Brazilian EMI/Odeon catalog. The selection is stunning, and filled with material that will make your jaw drop! Way beyond the usual bossa stuff, this one includes amazing fusion, cool grooy sounding stuff, and haunting cuts that are beyond description.. Tracks on this one include "Freio Aerodinamico" by Os Tres Morais, "Transamazonica" by Antonio Adolfo, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Jungle" by Som Tres, "Procissao" by Milton Banana, and "Reflexos" by Quinteto Villa Lobos & Luiz Eca. Great stuff, and a fantastic introduction to the kind of grooves that have been driving the international Brazilian scene. CD

✨✧ AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus track) ... CD
Black Sun (Germany), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". CD also features the bonus track "Montreux"! CD

✨✧ Tania MariaVia Brasil Vol 2 ... LP
Barclay (France), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from our favorite time in Tania Maria's career – the time she spent in Paris, where she learned to weave her bossa jazz style with lightly breezy influences from European jazz! Fender Rhodes make up a bit part of the grooves here – as Tania plays both electric and acoustic piano side by side, often overdubbed in a groovy way that dances along with the jazzy rhythms laid down by Helio on Fender bass and Boto on drums and percussion. But perhaps the best thing of all is Tania's voice – deely soulful, yet always fluid and grooving – at a level that digs deeper than most other bossa singers of her generation, and which resonates beautifully with the deeper notes from her work on the keys! Titles include the funky "Transamazonica", plus "A Felicidade", "No Ano Que Vem", "Sem Compromisso", "Do A Flor", "Teimosa", "Biero Do Mar", and "Cancao Do Sal". LP, Vinyl record album
