Maria BethaniaLove Letter (aka Carta De Amor) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Right from the start, Maria Bethania showed herself as an artist who could almost shine better in a live setting than a studio one – from her early records, to famous albums that helped define the sound of MPB, to recent gems like this one – which has the singer still very much at the height of her powers! Maria's got this commanding presence that makes us hang upon each and every word – yet she also finds a way to never push things too far, or ever sound like she's forcing her emotion – a quality that may well come from the album's backings from Wagner Tiso, who gives Bethania the same sort of quiet drama he brought to Milton Nascimento's music back in the 70s. The passage of years have done nothing to hold back Maria's tremendous vocals! Special 2CD set features both of the single volumes from Brazil – and titles include "Cancoes E Momentos", "Sangrando", "Salmo", "Na Primeira Manha", "Maria Maria", "Cais", "Calunia", "A Dona Do Raio E Do Vento", "Fera Ferida", "Festa", "Lua Branca", "Viola Meu Bem", "Carta De Amor", "Minha Senhora", "Mensagem", and "Quixabeira Reconvexo".

Maria BethaniaMy Backyard (aka Meus Quintais) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
One of the most personal albums we've heard in years from Maria Bethania – a set that's got a quietly intimate vibe, one that really lives up to the spirit of the title – a place where Bethania can be herself and share some of her innermost thoughts! The backing is wonderfully intimate – usually just a bit of samba-styled percussion or guitar, but taken at a very slow pace – and Maria's vocals, while still having the majesty of other records, also come across with a more up-close spirit overall – one we find surprisingly moving, even after all these many years of loving her music. Titles include "Moda Da Onca", "Arco Da Velha India", "Candeiro Velho", "Alguma Voz", "Xavante", "Mae Maria", and "Povos Do Brazil". CD

Martinho Da VilaEnredo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
Soulful samba from the great Martinho Da Vila – still every bit as joyous and lively as during his famous years of the 70s! The album's a rock-solid set from start to finish – and really lives up to Martinho's long musical legacy, which hasn't dimmed a bit – while also finding space for collaborations with guest stars who include Alcione, Beth Carvalho, Maria Freitas, Martinho Tonho, Mart'Nalia, and others. Titles include a host of Da Vila's classics, some worked into medley numbers – with tracks that include "Carlos Gomes", "Tamadare/Rui Barbosa", "Travalhadores Do Brasil", "Prece Ao Sol/Iemanja Desperta", "Raizes/Tribo Dos Carajas", and "Por Ti America/Pra Tudo Se Acabar Na Quarta Feira".

Mart'naliaEm Samba Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
A wonderful live set from Mart'nalia – done at a level that really focuses on her raw, raspy vocals – and with backing that's pure classic samba all the way through! The set features guest work from Martinho Da Vila, who also handled the music direction as well – and the whole thing's got just the right sort of timeless vibe to match that never-ending, never-failing energy that Mart'nalia brings to her music – a quality that's both steeped in tradition, but which also comes across with a fresh, youthful feel as well. Titles include "Coracao Em Desalinho", "Casa Um DA Vila", "Maracangalha", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Pra Que Chorar", "Carol Clarisse", "Aviao", and "Samba A Dois". Also features two bonus studio tracks – "Sinto Lhe Dizer" and "Tem Juizo Mas Nao USA". CD

Orquestra ImperialOrquestra Imperial Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $23.99
Beautiful live work from this totally great Brazilian collective – a group who's large enough to win the Orquesta in their name, but who work together with a cohesiveness that's more in a small group mode! The vocals alone are totally great – sung in a shifting lineup that includes Nina Becker, Moreno Veloso, Thalma De Freitas, and Rodrigo Amarante – each of whom bring a different flavor to the proceedings, and deepen the rich spirit of the tunes! Instrumentation is relatively traditional – with lots of great acoustic percussion, guitar, and horns – but given that the trio of Veloso, Dominco, and Kassin are a key part of the group, you can bet that the arrangements have plenty of fresh twists and turns as well. Titles include "Obsessao", "Nao Foi Em Vao", "Matematica Do Desejo", "Rue Des Mes Souvenirs", "Gomalina", "Dr Sabe Tudo", and a totally cool cover of the Perry-Kingsley tune "Popcorn"! DVD has 20 tracks – more than the CD! DVD

Wanda SaWanda Sa Ao Vivo (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $21.99
Some of the coolest, most compelling work we've heard in years from Wanda Sa – a very spare, stripped-down session that really gets back to the roots of her music from the 60s! Wanda Sa has been reviving her bossa sound for the past decade or more, but most of those recordings often have a decidedly modern feel in some of the instrumental and production choices – while this album really goes for a classic vibe all the way through, as Wanda sings beautifully without any extra trappings, and plays guitar with this sublime sense of tone and color to really illuminate the lyrics! The music has some extra backings, too – but really in a light, small combo bossa mode – save for some points when Sa is joined by Marcos Valle, Joao Donato, and Carlos Lyra – all of whom approach the project in a similar way. Titles include "O Que E Amar", "Novo Acorde", "Vagamente", "Ciume", "Pra Sempre", "Minha Saudade/Bim Bom", and "E Nada Mais". Also features bonus tracks with appearances from Jane Monheit and Dori Caymmi! CD

✨✧ Edu LoboEssential Edu Lobo – A 70th Birthday Celebration (aka 70 Anos) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Edu Lobo at 70 – looking better than we did at 30 – working here in a wonderfully rich record that returns him to the glory of his most sophisticated sides from decades back! The performance is a live one – with a full orchestra behind the smaller combo – and Edu sings, and contributed all songs – and also gets wonderful help from guests who include Maria Bethania, Chico Buarque, Bena Lobo, and Monica Salmaso – all artists who duet with Lobo on a few tracks each, then all join together at the end! The approach is beautiful – more collaborative than most other albums from Edu, but in a way that still retains the magic and majesty of his music. Titles include "Noite De Verao", "Ponteio", "Cheganca", "Vento Bravo", "Ave Rara", "Corcacao Cigano", "Valsa Brasileira", and "Canto Triste". CD

✨✧ Jacques Morelenbaum Cello Samba TrioSaudade Do Futuro Futuro Da Saudade ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful record that's exactly what's promised in the group's name – a samba trio that's heavy on cello – played by the great Jacques Morelenbaum, who we know from so many other great records! The style's a bit bossa jazz, but has a very different feel – as the use of the cello really brings out the bluer, more melancholy moments in the tunes – as Jacques bows his instrument with a great sense of expressiveness alongside acoustic guitar and percussion. Titles include "Eu Vim Da Bahia", "Coracoa Vagabundo", "Outra Vez", "Ar Livre", "Voce E Eu", "Maracatuesday", and "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim". CD

✨✧ Paula Morelenbaum & Joao DonatoAgua ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We've always loved the music of Paula Morelenbaum, but this time around she's really got something special going on – thanks to keyboards and vocals from the legendary Joao Donato! Most of the tunes in the set are Donato numbers – themselves already a treat, but given a little something extra when handled by the master – as Donato's playing both electric and acoustic piano on the set! But maybe even more special are Joao's wonderful vocals – heartfelt and nicely wizened with age – making for a warm contrast to the more youthful modes of Paula. The arrangements are in that perfect Donato mode – light and lively, but never too wispy – and titles include "A Ra", "Cafe Com Pao", "A Paz", "Tudo Tem", "Entre Amigos", "Mentiras", "Ahie", and "Lugar Comum".

✨✧ Maria BethaniaLove Celebration Devotion (aka Amor Festa Devocao – Ao Vivo) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2010. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Lovely live work from Maria Bethania – proof again that a concert setting often brings out her best! The album's got a title that links it to her recent double album – but the overall nature of the performance is much more all-encompassing – older songs mixed with newer ones, delivered in a style that's surprisingly intimate, even at the few points when the backings get somewhat large. Jamie Alem handles the arrangements – in the best modes he's used on other records with Bethania, but with a fair bit of acoustic guitar upfront in the mix – and titles include "Tua", "Fonte", "Curare", "Saudade", "Reconvexo", "Encanteria", "Santa Barbara", "Linha De Caboclo", "E O Amor Outra Vez", "Olho De Lince", and "Guriatan". 36 tracks on 2CDs.

✨✧ Maria BethaniaOasis (aka Oasis De Bethania) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maria Bethania's one of those artists who just seems to get better and better with time – already mature in her youth, and tremendously powerful in these later years – working with a depth of feeling that few of her contemporaries can match! And yet through it all, Bethania's also very subtle – more subtle than in her early days, when there was always a touch of drama in her music – working here in some gentle instrumental backdrops that almost take her back past her roots, into an imagined territory that really works wonderfully for her evocative vocals – a space that's all her own, as you might guess from the title! Tracks include "Salmo", "Fado", "Barulho", "Casablanca", "Vive", "Calmaria/Nao Sei Quantas Almas Tenho", and "Lagrima". CD

Dorival CaymmiEssential Caymmi – Dorival Caymmi Centenary ... CD
DRG, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A tremendous tribute to 100 years of Dorival Caymmi – the legendary Brazilian singer/songwriter who helped pave the way for bossa nova, Tropicalia, and so many other sounds to come! Unlike the beautiful 90th birthday album for Caymmi, in which he was still alive and able to participate – this set features other artists, including key family members, coming together in rich reworkings of his best compositions – done in a sophisticated blend of older Brazilian modes that's similar to some of the best Biscoito Fino projects in recent years. Mario Adnet put the album together with Dori Caymmi – and the set features performances by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque, Nana Caymmi, and Danilo Caymmi – as well as Adnet and Dori – on titles that include "O Que E Que A Baiana Tem", "Saudade Da Bahia", "Sargaco Nar", "Dora", "Vatapa", "Nem Eu", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "A Vizinha Do Lado", and "Cancao Da Partida".
