Herminio Bello De CarvalhoO Samba E Minha Nobreza ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A batch of samba tracks assembled by Herminio Bello De Carvalho – and performed by artists that include Roberto Silva, Paulao, Cristina Buarque, Mariana Bernardes, and Pedro Paulo. The set's got the same great overall look and feel of some of the best of the titles on the Biscoito Fino label – and the 2CD package features a large number of tracks, many of which are performed in kind of a pot-pourri mode.

Ze Renato, Jards Macala, Guinga, & Moacyr LuzDobrando A Carioca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Mauro SeniseCasa Forte – Mauro Senise Toca Edu Lobo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $11.99
Beautiful jazz-based versions of the work of Edu Lobo – a wonderful revival of his classic tunes from the 60s and 70s, served up here in as small combo instrumentals! Saxophonist Mauro Senise is at the lead of the group – but arrangements are also by pianist Gilson Peranzzetta, who's efforts on the record really help it sparkle – and give it a sense of grace and majesty that rally matches the original intent of the tunes! Senise switches between alto, flute, and piccolo for the record – and most numbers are handled by a shifting array of small group players – with some especially nice rhythm from Paulo Russo on bass and Ivan Conti on drums. Titles include "Valsa Carioca", "Casa Forte", "Arpoador", "Vento Bravo", "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Ponteio", and "Choro Bandido". CD

✨✧ Ana CostaNovos Alvos ... CD
Biscoito Fino/Zambo (Brazil), 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from this ex-member of O Roda Samba – an album that's got all the warm, soulful touches of her former group – but a quality that's a bit more personal too! Ana's got some great acoustic backing on most tracks – even more samba-styled than before – and it almost sounds like she's maturing backwards in time with her approach, reaching for classic roots that really suit her well. Titles include "Novos Alvos", "Antiga", "Almas Gemeas", "E Vai Que Da", "Estranho", "Quer Amar Mamae", and "Samba Cria Lei". CD

✨✧ JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The lovely Joyce – sounding lovelier here than we've heard in years – on a special Japanese album that really takes the singer back to her best classic territory! Backing is by a small group, and nicely jazzy – with piano from Helio Alves, and drums from Tutty Moreno – providing gentle accompaniment, but really letting the lady stretch out on her own vocals and acoustic guitar – with those soaring, cascading lines that first made us fall in love with her music way back in the 70s – captured perfectly here with impeccable, understated production. Alves notes on the piano are especially beautiful – ringing out in a way that really offsets the vocals and guitar – on titles that include "Mingus, Miles, & Coltrane", "Humaita", "No Misterio Do Samba", "Sambando No Apocalipse", "Casa Da Flor", "Na 75", "Ave Maria Serena", and "Forrobodo Das Meninas".

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Olivia & Francis HimeSem Mais Adeus – Uma Homemagem A Vinicius ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Vinicius De Moraes, presented here in a beautiful collaboration between Francis and Olivia Hime – in a manner that has the older Hime playing piano and singing alongside Olivia, with a personal warmth that really gets at the poetry in the music of Vinicius! Both Himes were close friends with Vinicius, and that warmth really shows through in their presentation here – full of feeling, but without ever being overdone – that careful balance of emotion that made the poet's lyrics one of the most important forces in bossa nova. Titles include "Canto De Ossanha", "O Grande Amor", "Valsa De Euridice", "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar", "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce", "Anoiteceu", "Primavera", "Samba Pra Vinicius", and "Labareda". CD

✨✧ Edu Lobo/Romero Lubambo/Mauro SeniseDos Navegantes ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds throughout – and exactly the kind of record that shows why the right sort of Brazilian music can be so different than anything else on this planet – not really jazz, not really folk, nor straightforward pop – but the kind of special sounds that define a genre unto themselves! The record's a warmly collaborative effort from the trio of Romero Lubambo on guitar, Mauro Senise on saxes and flute, and the great Edu Lobo on voice and compositions – songs pulled from his decades-long contribution to Brazilian music, given a very special, very personal performance by the group! Lobo always had a way of balancing up-close performance with loftier arrangements – and here, that latter side of his music is pulled away, to bring the singer even more strongly into the limelight – as he gets very warm accompaniment from both of the other lead players. The set also features some guest work from Cristovao Bastos on piano, Bruno Aguilar on bass, and Mingo Araujo on percussion – and titles include "Toada", "A Morte De Zambi", "Gingado Dobrado", "Considerando", "Dos Navegantes", and "O Circo Mistico".

✨✧ 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

Som Livre/DRG, 2003. Used ... $11.99
Gently sophisticated work from Gal Costa – tracks recorded either with small group backing, or some larger arrangements that make some nice use of strings.

Antonio Carlos JobimSymphonic Jobim (aka Jobim Sinfonico) ... CD
Adventure Music, 2002. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
A beautiful set of symphonic tracks based around the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim – work that stretches back to the 50s, up through 60s bossa nova, and even includes some of Jobim's more complicated orchestrations from the 70s! The music is done in the arch-baroque style of other titles on the Biscoito Fino label – with a full symphony orchestra, smaller instrumental groupings, and even some strong vocal performances that drift in and out of the music. The set features re-interpretations of original arrangements by Jobim, Nelson Riddle, Deodato, Claus Ogerman, and others – and was put together by Paulo Jobim. Titles include "Lenda", "Macumba", "O Homem", "Saudade Do Brasil", "Matita Pere", "Chora Coracao", "Bangzalia", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Gabriela". Very nicely done 2CD set! CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)
