Maria BethaniaAbracar E Agradecer ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... $32.99
The beautiful image on the cover is a great summation of the sound of this set – as the live performance has all the power and majesty that Maria Bethania brought to her work, right from the start – but also maybe a bit more warmth than we'd normally expect! That spontaneous smile that Maria gives us on the cover seems to grace much of the performance within – and which makes her seem far younger than the 70s years the concert was intended to celebrate! The group is excellent, too – a bit looser and more down to earth than some of the larger arrangements used on other Bethania concerts – with bassist Jorge Helder at the helm of a septet that makes nice use of percussion and guitar. Titles include "Eterno Em Mim", "Gita", "A Tua Presenca Morena", "Nossos Momentos", "Dindi", "Rosa Dos Ventos", "TAtuagem", "Meu Amore E Marinheiro", "Camara De Ecos", "Alguma Voz", "Quixabeira", "Reconcavo", and "Non Je Ne Regrette Rien".

Ze Renato, Jards Macala, Guinga, & Moacyr LuzDobrando A Carioca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
A sublime meeting of these four legendary Brazilian talents – singers and musicians we're not used to hearing in each others' company, but who feel here as if they've been working together for a lifetime! The approach is beautiful – as each singer also plays a bit of acoustic guitar – in a setting that has shifting voices and guitar parts cascading through a wonderful array of tunes – sometimes in ways that create very resonant harmonies, sometimes with a more isolated feel that's more in a classic bossa mode. There's a warmth and spontaneity to the music that really comes through – this is no staid meeting of top talents – and the whole thing's better than we even might have expected, and maybe even better than most recent albums by some of these artists too. Titles include "Favela", "Nega Dina", "Picotado", "Toada", "Voce Voce", "Sinha Sinho", "O Mais Que Perfeito", "Vapor Barato", "Catavento E Girassol", and "Cachaca Arvore E Bandeira". CD

✨✧ CarminhoCarminho Canta Tom Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover image makes it look like Carminho's a contemporary of Antonio Carlos Jobim – but she's actually a much younger artist – a great contemporary fado vocalist, who serves up some very unusual readings of classic songs by the bossa legend! Carminho's way of phrasing is very different than most bossa nova singers – filled with more expressive elements at times, but never in a way that overwhelms the music – just shifts it into a space that's all her own, even amidst faithful arrangements by Paulo Jobim, who plays guitar on the record along with Daniel Jobim on piano and Jaques Morelenbaum on cello. With that instrumental pedigree, you can guess the care that went into the session – and Carminho's unique approach really makes for a special album – one that's way more than just another rehash of Jobim's compositions. The set features guest appearances from Marias Monte, Chico Buarque, and Maria Bethania – and titles include "O Que Tinha De Ser", "Estrada Do Sol", "Triste", "Falando De Amor", "Wave", "Sabia", "Luiza", "Modinha", A Felicidade", and "O Grande Amor".

✨✧ Marcos ArielNoite Feliz ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set of solo piano Christmas tunes from Brazilian keyboardist Marcos Ariel – a record that seems to start out with a familiar vibe, but then takes off into some very nice directions of its own! Ariel serves up a relatively straight take on "Jingle Bells" at the start – almost like a pianist in a cocktail bar – but then moves into material that includes some of his own tunes, as well as work by Milton Nascimento, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney. Titles include "Conversa Com Os Anjos", "Valsa De Santa Clara", "Ave Maria", "Luz Do Natal", "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)", "When You Wish Upon A Star", "O Velhino", "Cancao Da America", and "Ebony & Ivory".

✨✧ Heraldo Do MonteHeraldo Do Monte ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heraldo Do Monte's been playing guitar on the Brazilian scene from the late 60s onward – and over the years, his work on the instrument has really hit the level of the sublime – as Heraldo's able to effortlessly turn out flurries of notes with very individual phrasing – which results in superb records like this! The album's got a relatively unusual setting – as Heraldo plays the "viola caipira", a five string guitar with a nicely raspy sound – alongside two more seven string guitars handled by other musicians, one of whom appears to be his son – with additional percussion in the quartet, used relatively lightly – as much of the rhythmic energy comes from the guitars! The interplay between the musicians is wonderful – and wonderfully recorded – and most numbers are originals by Heraldo, with titles that include "Choro De Viola", "Docura", "Esperando A Feijoada", "Interico", "Pra Lurdes", and "Moreneide".

✨✧ No Em Pingo D'AguaSambatologia ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful instrumental ensemble from Brazil – one who soar through samba and choro modes with effortless ease and a jazzy vibe all the way through! The core quartet features percussion, bandolim, guitar, and soprano sax or flute – all used in modes that update an older tradition with more creative interplay, and a fast flurry of colors that really makes the whole album sparkle! The sound is nicely different from old school samba, but never too far from its roots – and titles include "Pelo Telefone"," Samba Da Minha Terra", "Ultimo Desejo", "Copacabana", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Nana", and "Se Voce Jurar".

✨✧ Marcos Valle & Celso FonsecaPagina Central ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wicked collaboration between Marcos Valle and Celso Fonseca – a set that's different than other recent work from both artists, and pretty darn great overall! The style's a bit fuller and more soulful than some other recent Valle albums – and Fonseca's got more force too – not nearly as gentle as on some of his own albums, and working with Marcos in a mode that recalls some of the best soul-based sound of Valle's records from years back! Both Marcos and Celso sing on the set – and Valle plays lots of Fender Rhodes, in ways that remind us that he was one of our favorite musicians to handle the keyboard back in the 70s – and most cuts on the record are co-composed by Valle and Fonseca. Titles include "Quase Perto", "Tres Da Tarde", "Pagina Central", "Pra Tocar Assim", "Faz De Conta", "Azul Cristal", "Voo Livre", and "Curvas Do Tempo". CD

✨✧ Chico Buarque & OthersChico – Artista Brasileiro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful performance that pays tribute to the legendary Chico Buarque – and one that features performances from the man himself, plus great guest artists – all in a stripped-down setting with a very personal vibe! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – often just a bit of piano, acoustic guitar, and maybe a bit of cello or percussion – used to shade in the tunes alongside the vocals, which are very firmly in the lead – on a range of tunes penned by Buarque, which fit perfectly in this intimate setting. Chico himself sings "Sinha" and "Paratodos", and other tracks include "Sabia" by Carminho, "As Vitrines" by Ney Matogrosso, "Mambembe" by Moyseis Marques, "Mar E Lua" by Monica Salmaso, "Estacao Derraderia" by Pericles, and "Sobre Todas As Coisas" by Carimho & Milton Nasimento.

✨✧ Ana CostaPelos Caminhos Do Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tribute to the legendary Martinho Da Vila – served up in a sparkling samba mode that does way more than just go back to the roots, and instead really opens up these tunes with a fresh, personal sense of interpretation! The instrumentation blends classic percussion with some sweet electric guitar lines – used sparingly, but in a different way than acoustic strings – never commercial, but with a nice edge that makes the music groove beautifully as Ana brings her soulful vocals into play! The set features guest appearances from Mart'Nalia, Marcelinho Moreira, Zelia Duncan, Alceu Maia, Agriao, and others – and titles include "Meu Lairaira", "Fazendo As Malas", "Pelos Caminhos Do Som", "Semba Dos Ancestrais", "Ex Amor", "Canta Canta Minha Gente", and "Madalena Do Jucu".

✨✧ Leila MariaLeila Maria Canta Billie Holiday In Rio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the usual Billie Holiday tribute set – given the fresh approach that Leila Maria brings to her vocals, and the way that the album's mix of arrangers really change things up! The album's definitely cast in Billie's legacy, but not slavishly so – and instead has this cool, contemporary vibe that mixes some Brazilian jazz currents in with Maria's soulful readings of the lyrics – amidst a shifting set of backdrops handled by keyboardists Cristovao Bastos, Delia Fischer, Paulo Midosi, Fernando Costa, and others. Definitely a jazz vocal album, but one with a spirit all its own – and titles that include "Easy Living", "Good Morning Heartache", "Comes Love", "Swing Brother Swing", "Same Old Story", "You Go To My Head", and "God Bless The Child".

✨✧ MiuchaAo Vivo No Paco Imperial ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2000. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice little live set from bossa singer Miucha – a vocalist we know best for her late 70s collaborations with Antonio Carlos Jobim, sounding equally great here with just a spare trio to back her up! The concert is from the turn of the century – and has that mix of subtle, sophisticated styles we've come to expect from the Biscoito Fino label – a mature presentation of the music that has Miucha working with the subtle emotion that's always best for pure bossa nova – given just the right kind of jazzy currents from the piano, bass, and drums. Guinga and Francis Hime each guest on a track – and titles include "Joao E Maria", "Chansong", "Querida", "Pra Que Mentir", "Falando De Amor", "O Amor Em Paz", "Na Batucada Da Vida", and "Pressentimenteo".

✨✧ Wanda SaWanda Sa Live (Wanda Sa Ao Vivo) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Caetano Veloso/Maria Bethania/Gal Costa/Gilberto GDoces Barbaros (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A key post-Tropicalia moment in Brazilian music – a live set that brings together four of the strongest forces in 70s MPB – Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, and Maria Bethania – all strong survivors from the early years, working here in a richly creative style! Although recorded in the 70s, the concert has a very freewheeling 60s feel – almost hippie-esque at points, which is a big surprise considering the territory these artists were pursuing on their own recordings – with plenty of acoustic guitar, live percussion, and a really relaxed, friendly interplay on the lyrics of the tunes. The camera work is pretty wonderful – clear and focused on stage, and interspersed with snippets of backstage bits too – a tremendous document of the times, and proof that these four key artists were as creative as ever during the 70s! Titles include "Sao Joao Xango Menino", "Trecho O Seu Amor", "Quando", "Os Mais Doces Barbaros", "Passaro Proibido", "Chuck Berry Fields Forever", "O Seu Amor", "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", "Os Mais Doces Barbaros", "Eu Te Amo", "Um Indio", and "Esoterico". DVD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Tarasca Guidon", "Pe Quente Cabeca Fria", "Nos Por Exemplo", and "Eu E Ela Estavamos Ali Encostados Na Parede". DVD

✨✧ Various26 Premio Da Musica Brasileira – Homenagem A Maria Bethania ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tribute to Maria Bethania – one that starts out with a few songs by the lady herself, then opens the door to work from a whole host of hip Brazilian talents – not just contemporaries from Maria's big years in MPB, but also some of the leading lights of the 21st Century as well! Many tracks are presented in a way that shifts between singers in a "pout-pourri" mode that recalls older Brazilian live sets – and titles include "O Quereres" and "Carcara" by Maria Bethania, "Pau De Arara" by Lenine, "Ambar" by Adriana Calcanhotto, "Lua Vermelha" by Arnaldo Antunes, "Negue" by Alcione, "Pra Dizer Adeus" by Dori & Nana Caymmi, "De Manha" by Caetano Veloso, "Cigarro De Paia" by Monica Salmaso & Jackson Antunes, and "As Ayabas" by Marlene De Castro.
