Marcos ArielNoite Feliz ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

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".

Chico BuarqueCarioca (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $4.99
Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the past decade – and Chico's working here with arranger Luiz Claudio Ramos in a set of tracks that mix rootsy instrumentation with more complicated phrasing – a style that carries echoes of some of Edu Lobo's best 70s material, and which, like that, has a genre-less quality that's all its own! Chico's original lyrics and raspy vocals would be enough to make this record great, but the instrumentation takes it to a space that's even more special. Tracks include "Suburbio", "Outros Sonhos", "As Atrizes", "Renata Maria", "Leve", "Sempre", "Imagina", "Dura Na Queda", and "Ode Aos Ratos". CD

CarminhoCarminho Canta Tom Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Herminio Bello De CarvalhoO Samba E Minha Nobreza ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used 2CD ... $0.99
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.

Igor EcaEm Casa Com Luiz Eca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
Igor Eca pays tribute to his father – Luiz Eca, one of our favorite Brazilian arrangers of all time! Most folks know Luiz as the pianist and guiding force behind the Tamba Trio – but he's also got a legacy of songwriting, instrumentation, and musical creation that go beyond his recordings with that group – beautifully revived here by the younger Eca on bass, with help from an all-star lineup that includes Toninho Horta on guitar and vocals, Mauro Senise on flute and soprano sax, Itamar Assiere on piano, and Edu Lobo on vocals! Most titles are remakes of key compositions by Luiz Eca – and the style of the album is wonderful – like some of Eca's best work in the post-Tamba years. Titles include "Dolphin", "Imagem", "Alegria De Viver", "Tamba", "Buzios", "Mestre Bimba", and "Reencontro". CD

JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $26.99
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".

Edu Lobo/Romero Lubambo/Mauro SeniseDos Navegantes ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
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".

Roberto Menescal & Abel SilvaO Encontro Inedito ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
A great collaboration between bossa legend Roberto Menescal and Brazilian songwriter Abel Silva – who works with Menescal here on a host of fresh and unusual tunes! It appears that most of the material here was penned by the pair many years back, but not used at the time – and here, the songs soar out in that warm bossa-rival style that Menescal's been using for the past decade or so – with help from a variety of singers who include Nara Leao, Claudia Telles, Ana Costa, Saloa Farah, Wanda Sa, Leila Pinhero, and Cris Delanno. Titles include "Floripa", "Rio Exaltacao", "Gesto De Mulher", "Rochedo", "Transparencias", "Contemplacao", "Sandalias Feliezes", and "Sabedoria". CD

Monica SalmasoNoites De Gala, Samba Na Rua ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2007. Used ... $13.99
Jazzy samba from Monica Salmaso – a batch of songs penned by Chico Buarque, and cut with some great accompaniment from Pau Brasil! The combo features great piano from Nelson Ayres – one of our favorite Brazilian jazz talents from many years back, and he gives the music a great force that works nicely with Monica's vocals, and which tends to offset her natural sweetness nicely. Other instrumentation includes sax, flute, guitar, cavaquinho, bass, and percussion – and the jazzy inflections help add a new level of sensitivity to the record. Titles include "Logo Eu", "Voce Voce", "Contrucao", "O Velho Francisco", "A Volta Do Malandro", "Bom Tempo", "Basta Um Dia", and "Partido Alto". CD

✨✧ Chico BuarqueCaravanas ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's an aging Chico Buarque on the cover, still looking cooler than anyone else around – and sounding the same on this wonderful record! Buarque was one of the first of an important new generation of Brazilian songwriters to emerge in the 60s – and unlike some of the others, who've maybe lost steam over the years, Chico continues to grow and evolve – really shaping his music to different modes as the years go on, and never failing to give us his all with each new recording! This set's got a beautifully personal vibe – mostly Buarque's still-wonderful voice alongside his own acoustic guitar – augmented by other instrumentation, but in ways that still really leave the master at the forefront – with a level of songwriting and performance that's completely mesmerizing. Titles include "Tua Cantiga", "Massarandupio", "Dueto", "As Caravanas", "Desaforos", "Casualmente", and "Jogo De Bola". CD

✨✧ Gal CostaEstratoferica – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little live set that follows off the same sort of energy as the studio album Estratoferica – which has Gal Costa coming across with a more youthful vibe than she's had in years! As with that record, Gal's working here with a group of younger musicians – players who bring more rock currents to the music than you might expect, with especially strong use of electric guitar and keyboards – which Costa matches with a surprising degree of power in her voice! The tunes are pretty straightforward – no Tropicalia experiments here –but the overall approach still feels more 70s MPB than much of Gal's more recent material. Titles include "Meu Nome E Gal", "Estratosferica", "Por Um Fio", "Cabelo", "Quando Voce Olha Pra Ela", "Casca", "Dez Anjos", "Nao Identificado", "Mal Secreto", "Ecstasy", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando", and "Por Baixo".

Olivia Hime sings a set of compositions by Dorival Caymmi – set to spare and melodic arrangements by either Wagner Tiso or Francis Hime. The feel of the album is similar to other work on the Biscoito Fino label – sophisticated, yet easy-going, with slight traces of jazz in the instrumentation. Titles include "Saudade De Itapoa", "Abertura", "O Mar", "O Vento", "Noite De Temporal", and "Sargaco Mar". CD

✨✧ Paula & Jacques MorelenbaumLive In Italy – Omaggio To Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and, as you'd expect from the duo of Paula and Jacques Morelenbaum, a set that's got a very unique flavor overall! The Morelenbaums have always been committed to the little sounds, the simple moments that have made Brazilian music wonderful from the bossa years onward – an approach that found important early flowering in the music of Jobim – and which is recast here in a very special way by the pair. These aren't simple bossa cover versions, nor slavish reworkings of the tunes – and instead, they get very unusual delivery from a trio that features Jacques on cello, plus guitar and drums – instrumentation that really underscores some of the bluer elements in the tunes, with Jacques' "voice" as important as Paula's interpretation of the lyrics. Titles include "Gabriela", "Vivo Sonhando", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Aguas De Marco", "Modinha", "Maracatuesday", and "Eu E O Meu Amor/Lamento No Morro". CD

✨✧ Monica SalmasoCaipira ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Monica Salmaso works here with some really lovely instrumentation – a bit of bass flute, some accordion, and even a bit of clarinet – all instruments that really give the record a unique sort of vibe! There's almost an updated version of the choro taking place here – but one that's got the much more introspective approach that Monica brings to her music – a mode inspired by jazz vocals, and a more personal singer/songwriter approach – used in a style that's gentle, but very effective – and underscored in just the right way by the small combo instrumentation. The approach is in that best Biscoito Fino mix of sophistication and understatement – and titles include "Saira", "Baile Perfumado", "Alvoradinha", "Acude Verde", "Bom Dia", "Caipira", and "Primeira Estrela De Prata".

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A loving tribute to one of the greatest pianists and keyboards in Brazil – the mighty Luiz Eca, known best for his work in the Tamba Trio, and for the wealth of styles and compositions he graced upon the post-bossa scene! The format is ambitious, as many tracks are arranged with fuller backings – and arrangements on the set include those by Eca himself, plus work by Nelson Angelo, Wagner Tiso, Francis Him, Gilson Peranzzetta, and Jacques Morelenbaum. Performers include Joao Donato, Sivuca, and Wanda Sa – and titles include "Tema De Anita", "Tamba", "Dolphin", "Alegria De Viver", "Melancolia", and "Quietly". CD

Gently sophisticated work from Gal Costa – tracks recorded either with small group backing, or some larger arrangements that make some nice use of strings. The whole album's got the ambitious feel of some of the recent titles on the Biscoito Fino label – and arrangements are by Eduardo Souto Netto and Julinho Teixeira. Titles include "Sabado Em Copacabana", "Brigas", "Fim De Caso", "Nervos De Aco", "Kalu", "Chora Tua Tristeza", "Pra Machuchar Meu Coracao", "Linda Flor", and "Alguem Como Tu". CD
