Bola SeteE A Bola Da Vez ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1959. Used ... $14.99
Early early work from Bola Sete – one of the first recordings made by the Brazilian guitarist, done with mostly electric guitar, in a style that really sounds great! The backing is mostly spare percussion, and Bola grooves in modes that not only include samba and other Brazilian styles, but also a bit of American guitar modes as well – grooving in a way that really makes the strings dance! Titles include "Historia", "Minha Saudade", "Eu Preciso De Voce", "Ma Griffe", "Nao Manche O Meu Panama", "Senorita Luna", "Cade A Jane", and "Um Chorino Dos Nossos". CD

Bola SeteShambhala Moon ... CD
Samba Moon, 1982. Used ... $8.99
Like the CD reissue of Sete's Ocean Suite, this CD takes an earlier, hard to find recording by Sete on solo guitar and reissues it. In this case though, there's only one bonus track, as the suite was recorded in one take, from start to finish, in 1982, originally issued as Jungle Suite on Dancing Cat records in 1985. The set is more of Sete's beautiful solo guitar work, unique in that it finds him playing steel string guitar, unlike most all of his other recordings which were performed on a classical guitar. It has the same haunting beauty as the Ocean set, with cascades of notes and finger picked chords, and gentle melodies floating over the top. Titles include "Many Shades of Green", "Night Shadows", "Moonbeams, Moonlight & Midnight Magic" & "Sorcerers, Spirits, Devas & Deights". CD

✨✧ Bola SeteBola Sete At The Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Verve, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of grooves recorded live by this legendary Brazilian guitarist – and a record of his that we've always sold extremely well over the years! The setting is a stripped down stage at the Monterey Jazz Festival – where Sete grooves in an open-ended fashion with only bass and drums behind him. The best track on here is "Soul Samba", a nice little groover with good drumming by Paulinho (Magalhaes) – and the CD also features an extended medley of tracks from Black Orpheus, plus an original called "Flamenco". Plus, the CD reissue features 2 bonus tracks – both nice and long, and not on the original album! CD

✨✧ Bola Sete (aka Djalma De Andrade)Ocean Memories ... CD
Samba Moon, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of solo guitar recordings from Bola Sete – originally recorded at Fantasy studios, and first issued as the album Ocean on the Takoma label in 1975. This CD adds in a nice batch of 9 outtakes from the session, to create a whopping double CD set of 19 tracks, which is one of the best-ever chances you'll get to hear Bola Sete's solo guitar work. Sete's style had really matured by this point, and the CD is warmly introspective, and extremely beautiful. Titles include "Ocean Waves", "Guitar Lamento", "Let Go", "Xengo Xengo Xerengo", and "O Astronauto". CD

Lucas Santtana & Selecao Natural3 Sessions In A Greenhouse ... CD
Diginois (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $11.99
The most mindblowing record to date from Lucas Santtana – a dub-heavy session recorded live in the studio, done with a darkly brooding sound that's far different from his other albums! Instrumentation here is by the combo Selecao Natural – working in a blend of heavy bass and horns that are often nicely processed in the production – given a real old school approach to dub, but without losing any of the spontaneity of the live performance! Lucas himself sings, plays guitar and cavaquinho – and his presence on the record often comes out more cleanly in relation to the headier backings, making for a contrast that really adds a lot of power to the songs, and a sense of presence that's way more than just quirky genre-crossing pop. And although dub is one of the strongest elements here, there's plenty of other influences working through the mix too – including bits of Afro Beat and old school electro! The record features guest appearances by Tom Ze, Phyllis Huber, and Gilbar Bola 8 of Nacao Zumbi – and titles include "Pela Orla", "Tijolo", "Into Shade", "A Natureza Espera", "Ogodo Ano 2000", and "Pela Orla Dos Velhos Tempos".

✨✧ Tsehaytu BerakiSelam ... CD
Terp (Netherlands), Early 2000s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fabulous new recordings from Eritrean singer Tsehaytu Beraki, one of the stars of Ethiopiques 5-Tigrigna Music! A vocal critic of the Mengitsu regime, she was forced to flee her country in the late 80s and eventually settled in Rotterdam where she lived in obscurity until the late 90s, when she met up with Terrie of the Ex, who released this collection on his Terp label. Beraki accompanies herself on the krar – the magical, strummed six-string lyre – with a chorus of hand clappers driving the music's syncopated grooves. A handful of tracks feature sympathetic support from some of Holland's best progressive musicians, including drummers Han Bennink and Michael Vatcher and members of the Ex. But nothing can distract us from Beraki's stunning vocals and the music's jagged, off-the beat rhythms. Tracks include "Atzmtom Keskisom", "Abashawel", "Freweini", "Ilkanere Beantebo", and "Lale Bola" and the 2CD set is packaged with a gorgeous 88-page book crammed with photos, history, and lyric translations.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Walter WanderleyFantastic Walter Wanderley – Boss Of The Bossa Nova ... CD
Motor (Germany), 1960s/1998. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insanely wonderful 2CD set of work by the genius Brazilian organist Walter Wanderley, with a total of 45 cuts, divided up into 2 CDs – one devoted to his Brazilian recordings, one devoted to his American recordings for Verve. Sure, you may have a copy of Wanderley's Rain Forest LP, or the compilation that was put out last year, but this set is a million times better than both of them, and has a fantastic mix of material that stretches the groove way beyond his stereotypical organ trio sound. The Brazilian recordings (very hard to find otherwise) have lots of cool cool grooves, with wild production styles, and lots of augmentation to Wanderley's bubbling organ. The American recordings include material from some of his later Verve sessions, with vocals by Luiz Henrique, and lots of nice groovers like "Amazonas", "Happy Birthday", "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", and "Music To Watch Girls By". Other cuts include "Deus Brasileiro", "Garota Moderna", "Bola Branca", and "Chove Chuva". Cool package, great sound, and an essential collection! CD

✨✧ Hermes AquinoDecencontro De Primavera ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The only album we've ever seen by Hermes Aquino – a mid 70s singer/songwriter from Brazil, of the same post-bossa generation as Lo Borges and Milton Nascimento! Like those bigger names, Hermes works here in a style that's both personal and more wide-ranging – great songs helped along by backings that bring in a bit of jazz at some points, other acoustic instrumentation at others – all fused nicely with a subtle electric glide. Arrangements are by Wilson Mauro, who does a great job of lifting the songs up to the right level – and titles include "Cuidado", "Nuvem Passageira", "Longas Conversas", "Cavaleiro Do Sul", "2010", "Bola Louca E Colorida", and "Desencontro Da Primavera".

✨✧ Novos BaianosNovos Baianos (aka Linguagem Do Alunte) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rootsy samba and hipper 70s MPB influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music – a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s! The style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group's other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar, but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation, as well as some folkloric flute! Titles include "Reis Da Bola", "Isabel", "Bolado", "Miragem", "Fala Tamborim", "Ao Poeta", and "Eu Sou O Caso Deles". LP, Vinyl record album

Francy BolandOrchestra 1 – Blue Flame ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1976. Near Mint- ... $38.99
One of three large group records that Francy Boland recorded after the breakup of the Clark/Boland Big Band, but one that has a feel that's very similar to the material by the classic CBBB. In fact, much of the personnel remains the same, and the group includes Benny Bailey, Tony Coe, Ronnie Scott, and Sahib Shihab. Fats Sadi is on vibes, and Kenny Clare (not Kenny Clarke) does the drumming. Boland wrote most of the material, and he also handled all the arrangements with the same sort of great whimsical sound that he had with the CBBB. Gigi Campi, manager of the old group, produced the session, and the tracks include "Clair Obscur", "Cross Fire", and "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album

MPS (Germany), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $31.99 34.99
A hard slammer from the Clarke-Boland Big Band – recorded when the band was burning up the road in Europe, taking great players and audiences in one fell swoop, coming up with some of the strongest straight jazz of their generation! The album features stunning solos all around by an all-star mix of American and European players that includes Benny Bailey, Johnny Griffin, Tony Coe, Dave Pike, Sahib Shihab, and Ronnie Scott – all coming together with incredibly fluidity, yet also breaking out for some massive solos on their own! Arrangements are by Boland – tight, right, and outta site – and titles include "Let's Face The Music & Dance", "High School Cadets", "By Strauss", "Gloria", "Sweet & Lovely", "Get Out Of Town", and "I'm All Smiles".

Clarke Boland Big BandLive At Ronnie Scotts (Volcano/Rue Chaptal) ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1969. Near Mint- 2LP ... $19.99
A large group in a small club – the legendary Clarke Boland Big Band, playing at the home turf of one of their key members – tenorist Ronnie Scott! The set features a very legendary performance by the ensemble – a crack lineup that's easily one of the best ever sported by the CBBB – perfectly mixing American rhythms, and a trans-Atlantic lineup of soloists – all tied together with just the sort of rich arrangements that make the group so great! Things groove right from the get-go – thanks to a rhythm lineup that features Kenny Clarke on drums, and Francy Boland on piano – plus bassist Ron Matthewson, sitting in for the usual Jimmy Woode. The horn players really send things off, though – tight trumpets from Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, and Dusko Goykovich; bold trombones from Ake Persson and Nat Peck; and some searing reed lines from Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Derek Humble on alto, Sahib Shihab on baritone, and Tony Coe on both tenor and clarinet. This CD features both the first and second sets at Scotts by the group – albums titled Volcano and Rue Chaptal – with titles that include "Volcano", "Griff's Groove", "Now Hear My Meanin", "Box 703", "Thence We Issued Out Again to See the Stars", "Rue Chaptal", "I Don't Want Nothin", "Sax No End", and "The Girl & The Turk".

Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the best-selling albums ever recorded by the Clark-Boland Big Band – a set of hard-searing tracks played by an all star group, capturing the ensemble at its finest! The album's got a few nicely open-ended tracks that really let the soloists take flight – and players include Ronnie Scott, Sahib Shihab, Billy Mitchell, Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, Jimmy Deuchar, Ake Person, and Jimmy Woode. Incldues the best-named track in the band's career, "I'm So Scared Of Girls When They're Good Looking", plus "Night Lady", "A Ball For Othello", "Sabbath Message", and "Now Hear My Meanin'". Lots of nice writing by Francy Boland, too! LP, Vinyl record album

MPS (Germany), 1968/1969. Near Mint- 2LP ... $23.99
A 2LP set that brings together both of the "Smiles" albums by this legendary group! First up is All Smiles – a hard slammer from the Clarke-Boland Big Band – recorded when the band was burning up the road in Europe, taking great players and audiences in one fell swoop, coming up with some of the strongest straight jazz of their generation! The album features stunning solos all around by an all-star mix of American and European players that includes Benny Bailey, Johnny Griffin, Tony Coe, Dave Pike, Sahib Shihab, and Ronnie Scott – all coming together with incredibly fluidity, yet also breaking out for some massive solos on their own! Arrangements are by Boland – tight, right, and outta site – and titles include "Let's Face The Music & Dance", "High School Cadets", "By Strauss", "Gloria", "Sweet & Lovely", "Get Out Of Town", and "I'm All Smiles". Next is More Smiles – a seminal session from one of the greatest large groups ever! This one captures the Clarke-Boland ensemble at the peak of their creativity – swinging hard in that tight firey way that was virtually their trademark during the late 60s. The players are a top-shelf mix of European and American jazz legends – coming together without ego, without attitude, and having a hell of a time working through groundbreaking arrangements from leader Francy Boland. Soloists include Sahib Shihab, Tony Coe, Dusko Goykovich, Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Woode, and Benny Bailey – and the tracks are all short, but swing like a mofo, with plenty of solo action in the mix. Titles include "Love For Sale", "November Girl", "All Through The Night", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Bei Dir War Es Immer So Schon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mark Murphy/Clarke Boland Big BandMidnight Mood ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1967. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017
A fantastic set from vocalist Mark Murphy – easily one of his greatest albums ever! The session was recorded for the MPS label in Germany during the late 60s – at a time when Murphy was recording some excellent work overseas – and the album features backings by a small combo peeled off of the legendary Clark-Boland Big Band, who were also working for MPS at the time! Murphy's vocals get some tremendous backing on the set from a combo that includes Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Sahib Shihab on baritone and flute, Derek Humble on alto, and Ronnie Scott on tenor – and the grooves are a mix of modal numbers and straight jazz tunes – almost always dancing together in a lovely way that unlocks a side of Murphy's talents that hadn't been recorded this way before. And in fact, the album's gone onto have a huge influence on the current sound of club jazz – and is a key inspiration for the work of Nicola Conte, Koop, Five Corners Quintet, and others! The vocals are perfect, too – with nary a hint of overindulgence, and always a sweet measured groove that works perfectly with the material – and titles include "My Ship", "I Don't Want Nothin", "Hopeless", "Sconsolato", "Why & How", and "Just Give Me Time".

✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandFellini 712 ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most striking albums ever recorded by the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band – a suite of tracks composed by leader Francy Boland, swinging with a style that stands with the best MPS work of the time! Boland's clearly taking his cue from the sophisticated later work by Duke Ellington – but he's also inspired by the groovier soundtrack styles bubbling in Europe during the 60s, as well as the other incredible genre-blurring work on MPS at the time. The tracks are all nice and long, and swing with an exotic groove that keeps very much with the Fellini title – offering plenty of space for a range of great soloists that include Tony Coe, Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, and Idrees Sulieman. Brilliant throughout – an under-discovered jazz classic – with a suite of 3 movements that include "Rosati At Popolo Square", "Tween Dusk & Dawn In Via Urbana", and "Villa Radieuse". CD

The vibe is wonderful – and the collection's a great look at this unusual combo – filled with fire and soul – and proof that in the jazz world, at least, great things can happen when global boundaries are crossed.

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $2.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album
