Chico Buarque & OthersChico – Artista Brasileiro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
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 (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $21.99
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". DVD features four more tracks than the CD – and some bonus extras too! DVD

Heraldo Do MonteHeraldo Do Monte ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
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".

Leila MariaLeila Maria Canta Billie Holiday In Rio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Mart'naliaEm Samba Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. Used ... $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

MiuchaAo Vivo No Paco Imperial ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2000. New Copy ... $14.99
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 Ao Vivo (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. Used ... $9.99
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

Various26 Premio Da Musica Brasileira – Homenagem A Maria Bethania ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
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.

✨✧ Gabriel Grossi & Felix JuniorNascente – A Musica De Hermeto E Guinga ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two younger Brazilian music serve up a tribute to the music of older Brazilian giants – the guitarist Guinga, and sublime composer/multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal! Yet the setting here is quite different than you might expect – at least for the music of Pascoal – as the duo work with just the harmonica of Gabriel Grossi, and seven string guitar of Felix Junior – but in a pairing that still manages to open up with all the complexities of the songs! Grossi's an especially great discovery – blowing with all the vivid tonal depth of some of our few favorite Brazilian harmonicists from the past – and in a legacy that might well put him up there alongside Toots Thielemans and Mauricio Einhorn, for his ability to create sounds with the richness of a reed instrument. The set includes a few Pascoal compositions – "Balaio", "O Farol Que Nos Guia", "Suite Norte Sul Leste Oeste", and "Fatima" – plus Guinga tunes "Exasperada", "Baiao De Lacan", and "De Menor" – and originals by the duo, very much in the right spirit for the setting – with titles that include "Senhorinha", "Domingo Pascoal", and "Selva De Pedra".

✨✧ Zelia DuncanAntes Do Mundo Acabar ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Zelia Duncan – a set of tunes that are rooted in samba, but take on lots of jazzy elements too – thanks to the arrangements and guitar work of Marco Pereira, who's a key component of the set! Zelia's vocals are as great as ever – really classic, and with a balance of soul and sophistication that's as much a 60s bossa style as a contemporary samba mode – and the colors unlocked by both Pereira's song structure and his performance seem to make her sound even more special than ever, with this timeless quality that's got us going back to her other records all over again too. Titles include "Olha O Dia Vem Ai", "Antes Do Mundo Acabar", "No Meu Pais", "Por Que Voce Nao Me Convida Agora", "Dormiu Mas Acordou", and "Destino Tem Razao". CD

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Velha Guarda Do Imperio SerranoUm Show De Velha Guarda ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great collaboration between older samba stars from Brazil – a lineup that includes Wilson Das Neves, Fabricio, Toninho Fuleiro, Ze Luis, Lindomar, Capoeira Da Cuica, and others – all coming together in a warmly rootsy mode! The session's heavy on percussion and guitar-based rhythms – and vocals shift from track to track – sometimes with one star out front in the lead, sometimes with lyrics traded back and forth between the members of the group. Titles include "Menino D 47", "A Humanidade", "O Poeta E A Natureza", "Cuidado Vovo", "O Que Seus Olhos Tem", "Balsamo Da Paz", "Amor Aventureiro", and "Obsessao". CD

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
