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

✨✧ Roberto NascimentoRoberto Nascimento ... LP
Amazon/Tapecar, 1975. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little album – sweet jazzy MPB from Roberto Nascimento, a lost record that we're very happy got reissued! We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The overall sound is somewhere in the mode of Lo Borges, but there's some interesting, almost Joyce-like guitar overtones that give it a different feel than you might expect. Titles include "Lero Lero", "Se Eu Errei", "Tema De Vania", "Voltei", and "El Saltamontes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterJungle Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Capitol/Captain High (Germany), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
One of our favorite albums ever from the mighty Les Baxter – and one of the few from his Capitol years that really has a strong jazz component! The approach here is similar to Les' classic African Jazz set – with lots of rootsy percussion at the core, maybe more than usual for Baxter – mixed with larger instrumentation, plus a bit of vibes and other percussion – all topped with the soulful tenor of Plas Johnson, whose sound her really brings the whole thing together! The mix of jungle exotica and tenor is completely sublime – and titles include "Amazon Falls", "Coco", "Isle Of Cuba", "Jungla Brava", "Go Chango", and "Blue Jungle". Also features bonus tracks – "Safari", "Banana Boy", "Jungalero", and "Cairo Bazaar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Dona OneteBanzeiro ... LP
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2017. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Herbie MannFlautista – Herbie Mann Plays Afro-Cuban Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Verve, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Herbie hits some nice Afro-Cuban grooves, with backing by Latin percussionists like Ray Barretto, Ray Mantilla, Jose Mangual, and Patato Valdez. The set's a lively one, in the manner of his Flautista album, with some tracks that are a bit longer than usual, with a nice heavy groove. Titles include "Baia", "The Amazon River", "Frenesi", and a long Latin version of "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album

Agustin Pereyra LucenaBrasiliana (aka Ese Dia Va A Llegar) (with bonus download) ... LP
Altercat (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of our favorite albums ever from guitarist Agustin Pereyra Lucena – a record of gentle bossa groovers, recorded in Buenos Aires in 1975! The set's got an approach that takes off nicely from the late 60s bossa experiments in Brazil – mostly using small combo instrumentation with a gentle edge – allowing lots of room for Agustin's great work on acoustic guitar, but also adding in some great occasional touches on flute, sax, keyboards, and vocals. The album's got a wonderful version of Joao Donato's "Amazonas", done with duet vocals by Lucena and Laura Hatton – and other tracks include "Guayabas", "Ese Dia Va A Llegar", "Viento Que Va", "Madrugada", and "Reproche".

Nina MirandaFreedom Of Movement ... CD
Six Degrees, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
You might remember Nina Miranda for her great work with Da Lata years ago – but since that time, she's only evolved even more as an artist – to a point where she's really finding her voice here in a freshly creative way! The record's got a very compelling mix of acoustic and electric elements – some of the beats you might expect, but also mixed with more live percussion, and even some field recordings and other elements that really create a deeper texture of sound next to Nina's lovely vocals. The record also features help from some great talents from the underground – including Kassin, Chris Franck, Xaver Fischer, and others who've helped bridge the gap between Brazilian roots and 21st Century expression. Titles include "Marsh Mellow Dreams", "Whole Of London", "Megalopolis", "The Cage", "Silken Horse", "Capoeira 2020", "Play", "Amazonia Amor", "Soundtrack To Venus Night Boat", and "The Surfer". CD

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".

Walter WanderleyKee-Ka-Roo ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1967. Used ... $22.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Walter Wanderley – a set that's much more complicated than his earlier trio records for Verve – and which really expands the sound with a host of added elements! Wanderley's core organ bossa groove is amplified wonderfully here with the addition of guitar, vibes, horns, and other elements – all of which help to change the rhythms and move the groove way past just simple stock bossa. Walter plays a bit of electric piano too – hinting at work on later albums – and other players include Jerome Richardson on flute, Bobby Rosengarden on vibes, John Pizzarelli on guitar, and even a bit of vocals from Marge Dodson. There's a wonderful variety of tunes on the set – including Joao Donato's "Amazonas", Baden Powell's "Canto De Ossanha", and Bob Crewe's "Music To Watch Girls By" – plus other gems like "Sensuous", "Sambao", "Arrinho Atoa", "Kee Ka Roo", and "The Bobo".

✨✧ Francisco Mora CatlettRiver Drum ... CD
Premier Cru, 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant work from Francisco Mora Catlett – a really timeless record that encompasses a world's worth of elements in jazz! Catlett's at the height of his powers here – leading the group with a sense of righteous majesty that takes us back to some of the most ambitious heirs of the post-Coltrane generation, but with perhaps an oddly rhythmic twist as well – such as you might find in some of the 70s classics of Bobby Vince Paunetto. Echoes of Latin, Afro, and spiritual jazz come together as one – soaring to the skies on soulful waves of sound – brought together with a sense of focus and spirit that really moves us a lot. Players include Marcus Belgrave and John Douglass on trumpets, Sherman Mitchell on trombone, Vincent Bowens on tenor and flute, Alex Harding on baritone and bass clarinet, Kenny Cox on piano, and Rodney Whitaker on bass – and titles include "Samba/Conga De Amor", "Amazona Prelude/Dawn", "Old Man Joe", "Rumba Morena", "Afra-Jum", "King Of Lightning/Drums Solo", and "Hasta La Vista".

✨✧ Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Karel VelebnyNonet SHQ & Woodwinds ... LP
Saba (Germany), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost treat from MPS! The record brings together the hip Eastern European modern jazz group SHQ and an additional woodwind quartet, for a sound that's a mix of a modern modal and small-band grooving – very similar to some of the hipper work from the label's late Saba years. SHQ features great vibes by Karel Velebny, plus flute by Jiri Stivin, done in a way that snakes around the arrangements nicely, setting up a lively little melody next to the more rhythmic patterns of the other reeds. Tracks are all about 4 minutes long, with a mixture of spacey modern and tighter grooving. Titles include "Nude", "One Two Three Five", "Blowing Into My Dog's Brain", and "Amazone & Conjure".

✨✧ Georges DelerueL'Homme De Rio/Les Tribulations D'un Chinois En Chine ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1963/1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Clara MondshineLuna Africana ... LP
Great Thunder (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousJapanese Sounds – Produced By DJ Muro ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!
