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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has light wear and a sticker in one corner.)

✨✧ PiranhaHeaded In The Right Direction (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Amazon South/P-Vine (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassy funk from the early 80s southern scene – the only album we've ever seen from Piranha, and a gem of a tight little set! The groove here is roughly in the mode of some of the better-known northern club groups in the post-disco years – crafted with lots of boogie bass on the bottom and tight rhythms throughout the set. But there's also a style that's a bit more in the ensemble funk mode here too – one that still keeps most of the instrumentation acoustic, and which has a bit less keyboards and electric percussion than other boogie-era work. Titles include "Funk-a-sol", "One Sided Love", "Let's Get It Back Together", "Good Time Lady", "Headed In The Right Direction", and "Let Your Feelings Show". CD

✨✧ 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 ... $19.99
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
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Wanda Sa & Celia VazBrasileiras ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
A beautiful set of Brazilian vocals – inflected with a bit of bossa inspiration, but coming off a lot more freely overall! Wanda Sa and Celia Vaz sing dual vocals on a haunting set of tracks that have a strangely spacey sound, thanks to the lilting loveliness of the ladies' voices. The overall effect is kind of like a prime late 70s/early 80s Joyce session – and it's no surprise that Joyce guests on the record, along with Gal Costa, Nana Caymmi, and Quarteto Em Cy. Titles include "Amazon River", "Aqua de Beber", "Lugar Comum", "Uma Bencao", and "Molambo". Very nice! CD

SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". CD

✨✧ VariousHorror Hop ... CD
Buffalo Bop (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A host of horror-heavy tunes – and a killer collection of fright-filled novelty numbers with a decidedly rocking feel! This excellent set goes way past familiar Halloween tracks, to come up with a massive blend of rare singles from the late 50s and early 60s – most with really cool instrumentation and production – almost an audio equivalent to the kind of horror films that were big at the time! Titles include "Shudders & Screams" by Ben Colder, "The Mummy's Bracelet" by Lee Ross, "The Zoo" by Mickey Lee Lane, "Foo Man Choo" by The Revels, "Night Mare" by Billy Sills, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Black Widow Spider Woman" by Jack Hammer, "Vampira" by Bobby Bare, "Werewolf" by The Frantics, "Creature From Outer Space" by Sonny Day, "Amazon" by Phil Carter, "Graveyard Rock" by Tarantula Goul, and "Igor's Party" by Tony's Monstrosities.

✨✧ MaximillianMaximillian ... LP
ABC, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really messed-up blend of soul, rock, and blues – done in a style that's very much in keeping with the genre-busting Fillmore scene of the late 60s! Maximillian are a trio who run through Hendrix-like guitars, deep soul styled vocals, and bluesy riffing – often in the course of the same number – and the album's produced and arranged by Teddy Vann with a really wonderful approach that keeps things from getting too sloppy, and which propels the record forward without falling into the kind of traps that you'd get from other groups of this nature. Titles include "Moby's House", "The Road Rat", "Naked Ape", "Kickin 9 to 5", "Scar On My Memory", and "Little Amazon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Naked Ape". Cover has some surface wear and initials in pen on front.)

Joao Bosco/Antonio Adolfo E A BrazucaO Ronco Da Cuica/Transamazonica ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Exactly the kind of grooves that got us digging for Brazilian music in the first place! "O Ronco Da Cuica" is a fantastic reading on the familiar tune by Joao Bosco – done here with this kind of flanged-out spacey sound effects at the beginning, before the track rolls into rootsier funky samba modes! "Transamazonica" has loads of killer electric piano from Antonio Adolfo – riffing out a fast groove over these soaring arrangements that are tinged with a bit of harmony vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Los MirlosCumbia Amazonica ... LP
Infopesa/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1970s. New Copy ... $26.99
A sweet selection of sounds from Los Mirlos – a Peruvian group of the 70s, and one who recorded some really far out chica material at the time! The cuts here are mostly instrumental – although the group members also call out and shout along with their grooves – with some fantastic electric guitar in the lead, often taking on a tropical variation of a surf guitar sound from the 60s – but with less echo, and more of an ability to fit right into the lively rhythms! There's definitely a cumbia element at plan in the way the rhythms percolate – kind of that quick-stepping sound that was coming from Colombia, but with lots more freewheeling percussion touches, and nicely weird keyboard lines. Titles include "El Poder Verde", "Sonido Amazonico", "El Curandero", "Don Agucho", "Cumbia Amazonica", "La Marcha Del Pato",a nd "El Sonido De Los Mirlos". LP, Vinyl record album

Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $14.99
Darkly brilliant – and one of Joao Donato's most fantastic records! The set was recorded during Joao's time in America in the mid 60s – cut in New York with lofty backings by Claus Ogerman, in a pillowy soft mode that fits perfectly with Joao's light bossa piano lines, and which has all the hints of sadness and moodiness that often creep into his playing. The complicated approach of the album far surpasses some of Joao's work from Brazil at the same time – and the album's one of the best of its generation, a sublime mix of all elements that still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1965! Titles include "Amazonas", "Glass Beads", "Sugarcane Breeze", "Vento Do Canavail", "It Didn't End", and "O Barquinho". CD

Joao DonatoQuem e Quem ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1973. Used ... $18.99
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the record years back, and it's been firmly brought back into the limelight as the classic it truly is! The set's an incredible reworking of Donato's sound – the gentle jazzy phrasing of the bossa years turned towards mellow groovers that feature a heck of a lot of electric piano. The album's got a few classic funky tracks, and some even more wonderful tracks that feature Joao working sparely on Fender Rhodes – accompanying himself on raspy vocals on most of the cuts! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Nana Das Aquas", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Mentiras", "Cala Boca Menino", "Cade Jodel", "Me Deixa", and "Ate Quem Sabe". CD

✨✧ Tania MariaCome With Me (SACD hybrid) ... CD
Concord, 1983. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A real classic – one of Tania Maria's greatest American albums, and a sublime blend of styles that shows that her move to the US was not in vein! The group's an easy going west coast Latin ensemble with Eddie Duran on guitar, and the style is a breezy Brazilian one – perfectly situated on the bay shores of the Concord scene, with a nice modern grooving style. Includes the classic "Come With Me", plus "Lost In Amazonia", "Sangria", "Nega", and "Sementes, Graines & Seeds". CD

Claudio RoditiRed On Red ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
A rare set from trumpeter Claudio Roditi – and one that's got a great Brazilian groove too! Claudio plays here with some great help from vocalist Kenia – who sings in this jazzy way that's a bit like Tania Maria or Flora Purim at the time – with strong influences from the Brazilian fusion scene of the 70s, and a great groove that works perfect for the late CTI setting of the album! The album's a bit electric, but never too much so – and the keyboards of Jorge Dalto are nicely balanced both by Roditi's solos, and some guest reed work from Paquito D'Rivera. Titles include great readings of "Ponteio", "Madalena", and "Nothing Will Be As It Was Tomorrow" – plus "Red On Red", "Amazone", and "Pra Mim". CD

EG/Virgin (UK), 1973. Used ... $4.99
Roxy Music's third album and the first one sans Brian Eno, making the record slightly less experimental, but still a wild avant pop masterpiece that finds the group at near peak perfection! The otherworldly elements aren't forgone in Eno's absence, with some spacey synthesizer washes and treated violin parts lending some otherwordliness – but the more focused songwriting and overall tunefulness make this one another classic! Titles include "Street Life", "Just Like You", "Amazona", "Psalm", "Serenade", "A Song For Europe", "Mother Of Pearl" and "Sunset". CD

Som TresSom Tres Show ... CD
Odeon/Bomba (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
You won't find a groovier group than Som Tres – and if you need proof, check out this fantastic album! The group were a post-bossa trio led by pianist Cesar Camargo Mariano – and they grooved with a sound that started with the core piano trio sound of the bossa age, but which was also expanded a lot with late 60s orchestrations. The result is an incredibly strong batch of tunes that groove from the get-go – and which soar along the best baroque lines of the Blue Brazil generation. The whole album's great – with some light vocals, and lots of cool instrumentals – filled with tracks that include "Leonardo", "Amazonas", "Frevo Rasgado", "Sa Marina", "Jungle", "Balanca Zona Sul", "Emilia", and "Watch What Happens".

VariousAmplificador – Novissima Musica Brasileira – The Brazilian 10s Generation ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2015. Used ... $10.99
A wonderful overview of contemporary sounds from the Brazilian underground – artists all marked by the "10s" in the title, as they've just begun to blossom in the current decade! The set's one of the freshest we've heard in years – and really gives us a great opportunity to sample music we might have missed otherwise – as recent years haven't seen the influx of Brazilian acts to the global market that we've known in decades past – which has kept so much recent music hidden from our ears! The range of styles is wonderful – still plenty of older roots, but often inflected with lots of new ideas, in a manner that's maybe a bit like some of the Cuban experiments that Gilles Peterson has been promoting on his own label – yet maybe even stronger, as these cuts have sprung from the underground on their own. Titles include "Obatala" by Abayomy, "Zulumbi" by Zulumbi, "O Rei De Tupanga" by Iconili, "Cervejas Populares" by Ive Seixas, "Lucifer Colombia" by Burro Morto, "Zebrabeat" by Zebrabeat Afro-Amazonia Orquestra, "Ecos De Niafunke" by Andre Sampaio E Os Afromandinga, "Faria Lima Pra Ca" by Passo Torto, and "Feito Tamborim Para Ceu" by Fabricio.
