✨✧ Thiago De MelloAmazon ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure Brazilian jazz session – recorded in New York in 1973, and featuring work by Caudio Roditi, Airto, Dom Salvador, and Paulo Moura. The session's led by guitarist Thiago De Mello, who also does quite a bit of singing on the record – and the overall feel is nice and breezy, with kind of a west coast mid 70s approach to Brazilian grooves. Originally issued in a limited pressing of 1000 copies, this CD is the first time the material's seen the light of day again in years. Titles include "Tanta Ternura", "Boat Song", "Amanhecer", and "Don't Turn Away". CD

✨✧ Mario AdnetAmazonia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2013. Used ... $5.99
One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from Mario Adnet – a set done with some great expanded orchestrations – and key help from guests who include Roberta Sa, Monica Salmaso, and Lenine! The tunes have this spacious, expansive feel that really lives up to the Amazon promise of the title – beautifully poetic, but with the orchestrations, full of fire too – in ways that really take us back to some of the best Brazilian scoring of the early 70s – especially that time when folks like Tom Jobim and Edu Lobo were really hitting their most sophisticated levels. Many numbers have vocals – from Roberta Sa, Vincente Nucci, Monica Salmaso, Lenine, and Mario himself – and titles include "Boto", "Rio Amazonas", "Canoa Canoa", "Trilhas Da Floresta", "Borzeguim", "Saci", and a killer vocal reading of Joao Donato's "A Ra".

Billy HigginsOnce More ... CD
Red (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Really swinging work from one of our favorite drummers ever – a set that has Billy Higgins working with pianist Cedar Walton and tenorist Bob Berg – in a groove that's right up there with their famous Eastern Rebellion recordings! Walton's piano has a tone that's recorded a bit more sharply than on other dates from this time – kind of a ringing quality that makes for a slightly different sound than usual, especially on the numbers that have him starting out with solo passages. Tony Dumas completes the group on bass – often with a low end that's really appreciated – and titles include the great tune "Amazon", penned by Berg – plus "Horizons", "Estate", "Sabia", and "Plexis".

Earl KlughDream Come True ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Warm guitar magic from Earl Klugh – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannFlautista! (Folio) ... CD
Verve/Folio (Italy), 1959. Used ... $4.99
Very cool stuff – and one of Herbie Mann's greatest albums! The record is a tight set of Latin jazz tracks, with a feel that's a lot more rootsy than you'd expect. Herbie's flute is tight and choppy, but there's lots of other nice moments by Johnny Rae on vibes, and Patato Valdez and Jose Mangual on percussion. Includes 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

Dick Schory & The Percussive Art EnsembleRe-Percussion ... LP
Everest, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Plenty percussion from the great Dick Schory – and one of the musician's most jazzy albums of the time! There's still all the percussion you'd hear on Dick's famous sides for RCA – drums, marimbas, xylophone, and lots more – played by Schory and his "Percussive Art Ensemble" – with warm inflections on piano, guitar, and other instruments – enough to give the tracks just the right sort of swing! Titles include "Cloud Nine", "Omoo", "Amazon Tributary", "Josephina De Granada", and "Pentatonic Clock". LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo Silveira Organ TrioRicardo Silveira Organ Trio ... CD
Adventure Music, 2014. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ 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

ZincStreet Level (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
A nice bit of spacey, funky 80s groove from Zinc – with some catchier pop touches thrown into the mix as well – a sound that's almost in the same territory as The System, given the record's use of beats, keys, and guitar! The album's co-produced by Jacques Fred Petrus and Mauro Malavasi – the latter of whom seems to be the main force behind the group, given his work on arrangements and keyboards on the set. It's nicely geared for the dancefloor, too – with all the songs rolling well past the 5 minute mark – and include "Street Level", "I'll Never Stop", "Livin In The Boogie Now", "Amazon", "Phunkulation", and "I'll Take My Chances". This Vinyl Masterpiece CD edition is loaded up with bonus 12", extended and radio mixes, too – nearly doubling the original tracklist! CD

✨✧ Wanda Sa & Celia VazBrasileiras ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

Verve, Late 50s/1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Herbie's flute work for Verve was some of his best – and it had a tight Latiny groove that was often missing from some of his later, weaker work. This 2LP set brings together most of his best 50s moments for the label, including a lot of cuts that just don't show up on wax in any other way. Titles include "The Amazon River", "Come On Mule", "Oodles Of Noodles", "Baia", and a nice long version of "I'll Remember April". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Antonio Adolfo, Brazil & BrazucaDestiny ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2007. Used ... $7.99
The return of a legend – and a tremendously groovy little record! Brazilian keyboardist/composer Antonio Adolfo's been making records for years – but easily his greatest albums were those cut at the end of the 60s with his Brazuka group – a cool combination of funky rhythms, electric keyboards, spacious production, and female vocals – all wrapped up with that glorious Blue Brazil sound of the EMI/Odeon label. Here, Adolfo recaptures that sound beautifully – returning to modes he hasn't touched in decades – and getting tremendous treatment from the Far Out label, who really help him hit that classic sound right. The record's an instantly timeless set that rivals all of Antonio's wonderful work from many years back – recorded with Adolfo on keyboards, live jazzy rhythms, a bit of strings, and twin harmony vocals from daughters Carol Saboya and Luisa Saboia – soaring out beautifully with a really groovy sound. The whole thing's wonderful – even better than you might expect – and titles include "Bola Da Vez", "Papo Furado", "Luizao", "Eu E Voce", "Tudo E Brasil", "Domingo Azul", "Tao Iguais", "SOS Amazonas", "Sonho Estelar", and "Dono Do Mundo".

AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
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 four bonus tracks – "Jazz Carnival (full original mix)", "Avenida Das Manguerias (SS translation by Theo Parrish)", "Jazz Carnival (Yambee rework by Ashley Beedle & Yam Who)", and "Codsall Juniors" by Mark E.

✨✧ Joao DonatoQuem e Quem ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Mercury (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful album from Nara Leao – and one that features her singing duets with some of the greatest talents of the bossa era and beyond – an amazing lineup that includes Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Edu Lobo, Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, and others! The sound is wonderful – done with an intimate quality that brings a slightly modern variation of older bossa modes – but with some of the cool, dark inflections that Nara always has in her music. Instrumentation includes a fair bit of acoustic elements, and titles include "Repente", "Amazonas", "Cara Bonita", "Nono", "Joao E Maria", and "Sarara Miolo". Great stuff – and one of her best albums from the later years! CD

✨✧ Clara MondshineLuna Africana ... CD
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
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". CD

Roberto NicolisiRegina Delle Amazzoni ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
The queen of the Amazons gets even more powerful here – thanks to a mighty score from Roberto Nicolosi! The music has this sense of majesty that's slightly different than some of the other Italian blood and sandals movies of the time – still with the kind of exotic touches we love, especially in the lower ranges of the woodwinds and percussion from the orchestra – but also a driving theme that really grabs us, and which punches out with a strong sense of focus that really sets this one apart from the rest! The music is often nicely dynamic without ever being forced – and there's some surprising jazzy elements that really create great tonal elements in the music, in a way you don't always find in soundtracks of this nature. CD features 16 tracks from the film, nicely remastered. CD

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 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". CD also features a bonus long version of "Cahuenga". CD

Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

Two different tracks with "Samba" as the title – both very different than the usual samba groove! Amazones De Guinee play a sweet groove with this rumbling bassline at the core, and lots of deft guitar flaring out over the top – while a female lead singer brings the groove along to massive response from the audience! Moussa Doumbia's track is even funkier – with this long-spun groove that's very Fela-like in nature, and topped with a great sax solo before the vocals come into play! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Really great later grooves from bossa giant Walter Wanderley – an early 80s set that's got a different feel than some of his 60s albums for Verve Records – but a style that's still plenty darn nice! Walter plays Arp and moog next to his more familiar organ lines – and the overall feel is a bit like an update of his late 60s work for CTI records on the Moondreams album, but with a slightly more contemporary vibe! Bossa elements are still at the core of the rhythms, but they're handled in a looser way – by a rhythm trio that features John Pisano on guitar, Jose Marino on bass, and Alex Acuna on drums and percussion. Titles include "Perpetual Motion Love", "Recife", "Astronaut", "Jet Samba", "Amazonas", "Surfboard", and "On My Mind". CD features bonus tracks – "Laia Laidai", "Somewhere In The Hills", "She Told Me", "Jazz & Samba", and "O Barquinho". CD

Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible compilation of material by Mestre Cupijo and the musicians of Cameta – the Amazonian town where the Siria style was born! The always-great Analog Africa label turns to Brazil for this one – a nice step after their rich range of African reissues – given the nature of the material. The people of the region include many of African origin, and the music is an exciting mix of tropical rhythms and percussion, seemingly African-inspired horns, guitar and vocals. Mestre Cupijo recorded a half dozen records from the mid 70s to early 80s, capturing the time-honored regional style in a modernized setting, and this compilation puts some of the best of that material together in a really exciting set. Revelatory stuff! Includes "Mingau De Acai", "Mambo Do Martelo", Morena Do Rio Mutuaca", "Farol Do Marajo", "Cade O Anel?", "Ventinho Do Norte", "Pra Danca Meu Siria", "Passarinho Siriri" and more.

Equipe/Discobertas (Brazil), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Sergio Ricardo – a Brazilian artist we barely know at all, but who really won us over with this incredible album from the early 70s! There's a complicated vibe to the record right from the start – rich arrangements by Theo Barros that lie somewhere in a space between the Forma Records work of Jose Mauro and some of Marcos Valle's most inventive styles of the time – inventive, yet never too lofty – and bringing in some rootsier elements as the set moves on – all a perfect accompaniment to Ricardo's great vocals! At points, the record has a mix of folksy and sophisticated that almost reminds us of Geraldo Vandre – but at other times, there's a spacious quality that's almost more in the territory of Edu Lobo or Milton Nascimento. Titles include "Asuencia De Voce", "Labirinto", "Arrebentacao", "Conversacao De Paz", "Canto Do Amor Armado", "Bezerro De Ouro", and "Mundo Velho Sem Porteira". CD features 7 bonus tracks too – including "200 Milhas", "Amazonas", "Berimbau", "Improviso Tema 200 Milhas", and "Voce Nao Sabe Quem Sou Eu". CD

✨✧ Joao DonatoNew Sound of Brazil – The Piano Of Joao Donato ... CD
RCA (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
