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

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.

Walter Maioli/Fred Gales/Pit PiccinelliAmazonia 6891 – Sounds From Jungle, Natural Objects, Echo, & Electronic Waves ... CD
Black Sweat (Italy), 1986. New Copy ... $19.99
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. CD

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

MaximillianMaximillian ... LP
ABC, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. Used ... $6.99
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

VariousTrip To Brazil Vol 2 – Bossa & Beyond ... CD
EmArcy (Germany), 1999. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
Incredible – and one of our best-ever compilations of Brazilian music! This volume takes off where volume 1 ended – and it shows the rich evolution of Brazilian music during and after the bossa era, using a tasty batch of rare tracks to illustrate the wide range of styles that emerged during the late 60s and 1970s. Like the first volume, this one's extremely well packaged and well selected – and it features a total of 38 tracks on 2CDs, with liner notes and material that will appeal to the novice and collector alike. Tracks include "Fittipaldi Show" by Azymuth & Marcos Valle, "Ponteio" by Rogerio Duprat, "Marta E Romao" by Edu Lobo, "Pigmaliao" by Erlon Chaves, "Zazueira" by Elis Regina, "Odara" by Caetano Veloso & Nara Leao, "Mas Que Nada" by Ithamara Koorax & Azymuth, "April Child" by Leo Gandleman, "You & I" by Jon Hendricks, "Este Seu Olhar" by Joao Gilberto, "Ao Amigo Tom" by Claudette Soares & Som Tres, "Adeus Maria Fulo" by Os Mutantes, "Helena & I" by Mario Castro-Neves, "Meu Boi Bumba" by Thiago De Mello & Amazon, "Tu Veux Ou Tu Veux Pas" by Brigitte Bardot, and "Promise Of A Fisherman" by Sergio Mendes & Brazil '77.

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.

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

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

Infopesa/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

"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

Georges DelerueL'Homme De Rio/Les Tribulations D'un Chinois En Chine ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1963/1965. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017
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".

RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $6.99
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

EMI (Japan), 1973. Used ... $11.99
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

One of the first straight jazz albums Joao Donato has cut in years, and a nice mellow set of bossa tracks by this great Brazilian pianist! Joao's playing here with drummer Eloir De Moraes, and some tracks are spare trio ones, while others have added instrumentation by guests like Robertinho Silva and Raul De Souza. The set features nice moody readings of some of Joao's greatest compositions – like "Sambou, Sambou", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "A Paz", and "Ate Quem Sabe" – plus a few nice tracks from other composers. The focus here is on Joao's piano, and after years of paying his dues, there's a soulfulness here that's missing from his earlier albums. His work on the keys is a little less firey than before, but there's a huge amount of warmth and sensitivity, and a great feeling for the material. CD

Heritage/Sequel (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Sublime work from The Dreamlovers – a key Philly group who made the transition strongly from doo wop to 60s group soul! The set begins with some of the group's earliest material – issued by the first version of Jerry Ross' Heritage Records – but even more interesting is the later stuff, which appeared on the Columbia, Swann, and Cameo labels – eventually showing the group moving into the sort of uptown soul territory you might normally expect from New York! The package is overflowing with great tracks – a whopping 22 titles, recorded between 1961 and 1966 – with cuts that include "Oh Baby Mine", "You Gave Me Somebody To Love", "Bless Your Soul", "The Bad Times Make The Good Times", "When We Get Married", "I'm Thru With You", "If I Should Lose You", "Amazons & Coyotes", "I Need You", "Happiness", "Mother", "Let's Twist Again", "Calling Jo-Ann", and "Zoom Zoom Zoom".

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". CD

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".

Motor (Germany), 1960s/1998. Used 2CD ... $29.99
Insanely wonderful 2CD set of work by the genius Brazilian organist Walter Wanderley, with a total of 45 cuts, divided up into 2 CDs – one devoted to his Brazilian recordings, one devoted to his American recordings for Verve. Sure, you may have a copy of Wanderley's Rain Forest LP, or the compilation that was put out last year, but this set is a million times better than both of them, and has a fantastic mix of material that stretches the groove way beyond his stereotypical organ trio sound. The Brazilian recordings (very hard to find otherwise) have lots of cool cool grooves, with wild production styles, and lots of augmentation to Wanderley's bubbling organ. The American recordings include material from some of his later Verve sessions, with vocals by Luiz Henrique, and lots of nice groovers like "Amazonas", "Happy Birthday", "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", and "Music To Watch Girls By". Other cuts include "Deus Brasileiro", "Garota Moderna", "Bola Branca", and "Chove Chuva". Cool package, great sound, and an essential collection! CD

Polydor (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".

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

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".
