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- ... $9.99
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.

Walter Maioli/Fred Gales/Pit PiccinelliAmazonia 6891 – Sounds From Jungle, Natural Objects, Echo, & Electronic Waves ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album

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

Dona OneteBanzeiro ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
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", "Danzeiro", "Quando Eu Te Conheci", "Na Linha Do Arco Iris", and "Sonhos De Adolescente". 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- ... $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

✨✧ Wanda Sa & Celia VazBrasileiras ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus track) ... CD
Black Sun (Germany), 1979. Used ... $11.99
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

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

Joao Donato & Eloir De MoraesCafe Com Pao ... CD
Lumiar (Brazil), 1997. Used ... $11.99
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

Beautiful! Joao Donato has long been one of our favorite-ever Brazilian songwriters, and this tasty series from Lumiar finally pays him the rich tribute he deserves! The series, like the others on Lumiar, features some of Brazil's greatest artists ever, paying tribute to Donato with loving renditions of his best songs.

DreamloversBest Of The Dreamlovers – The Heritage Years Plus ... CD
Heritage/Sequel (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
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".

Tania MariaVia Brasil Vol 2 ... LP
Barclay (France), 1975. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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

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!

✨✧ Cal TjaderMambo Sangria – Cal Tjader Plugs In/Solar Heat ... CD
Skye/Fabulous (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 totally great Cal Tjader electric albums – both recorded originally for the Skye label, and back to back on one CD! Cal Tjader Plugs In is a beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s – a soaring, spacious sound that comes from the interplay between Cal's ringing vibes and the Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano work of Al Zulaica – an excellent player we only know from a few of Tjader's albums. Armando Peraza provides some tight conga work on the set – and titles include "Spooky", "Tra La La Song", "Morning Mist", "Alonzo", "Nica's Dream", and "Get Out of My Way" – a great instrumental take on the Latin soul hit from Joe Torres! Solar Heat is even better – a record that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". CD

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
