Sergio Mendes & Bossa RioVoce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada (Edicao Historica) ... LP
Philips/Fontana (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album
(1974 pressing, part of the Edicao Historica series. Cover has a bit of clear tape on the bottom seam.)

✨✧ VariousBossanova – Cool Bossa Nova & Hip Samba Sounds From Rio De Janeiro ... CD
We Want Sounds (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Not some overplayed bossa pop numbers, but instead the very real deal – the kind of cuts that set the Rio scene on fire when they were first released at the start of the 60s – and which still sound wonderful all these many years later, especially when brought together in a collection this huge! Many of these numbers weren't issued in the US at the time – or anywhere else outside of Brazil – and the package is overflowing with rare gems that show off the perfect blend of jazzy instrumentation, light but lively rhythms, and blue-tinged vocals that made the bossa generation so great! Titles include "Ciume" by Alaide Costa, "Tema Sem Palavras" by Johnny Alf, "Sambop" by Leny Andrade, "Tem Que Balancar" by Celso Murilo, "Muito A Vontade" by Joao Donato, "Boato" by Walter Wanderley, "Mesmo De Mentira" by Elis Regina, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor" by Orlandivo, "A Rosa" by Ed Lincoln, "Pernas" by Sergio Ricardo, "Nem Eu" by Lucio Alves, "Meditacao" by Maysa, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Sylvia Telles, "Chega De Saudade" by Elizete Cardoso, and "Samba Em Preludio" by Agostinho Dos Santos & Rosana Toledo. 2CD set features 40 tracks in all!

Georges DelerueL'Homme De Rio/Les Tribulations D'un Chinois En Chine ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1963/1965. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017 (delayed)
Two great soundtracks by Georges Delerue – both penned for Jean-Paul Belmondo films of the mid 60s! Les Tribulations D'Un Chinois En Chine has a really great style that mixes fake "Chinese" themes with more playful orchestrations – all in a mood that really fits that lightly comedic action of the movie, and which has an extremely evocative feel, even away from the screen! Strings are often arranged in playful ways, and mixed with odd woodwinds – not really authentically Chinese, but that's the appeal! L'Homme De Rio has a stronger Brazilian feel, as you might expect – one that's got bits of batucada, elements of bossa orchestrations, and some of the bolder, more dramatic moments we've come to expect from Delerue! The whole package is great, with lots of images from the films, and notes in both English and French – and a total of 24 tracks that include "Bowling Bresilien", "Batucada/Rapt Au Trocadero", "A La Poursuite De Catalan", "Quelle Adventure", "Mister Goh", "Hong Kong", "Poursuite En Ballon", "Suzy Et Cornelius", and "Choinoiseries" – plus 2 bonus tracks, "Alexandrine Pour Alexandra" and "Amazone".

Thilo KreitmeierMas Que Nada – Thilo Kreitmeier Plays Samba & Bossa Nova ... CD
Organic (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
The cover image here recalls a classic 60s album by Coleman Hawkins on Impulse Records – and the album's sound recalls the same set too – as reedman Thilo Krietmeier serves up a wonderful combination of tenor jazz and bossa grooves! The setting is spare and stripped-down – just a core piano trio, with no added percussion – but the rhythms are just right on all the tunes, and really have this tight small combo approach to bossa – plenty swinging, especially once Thilo comes in with his solos! A few tracks also feature some flute – an instrument used with very different phrasing, but in a great way – and singer Sophie Wegener makes an appearance on a few tracks too. Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Samba De Orfeu", "Wave/Flamingo", "Mirador Del Rio", "Chega De Saudade", and "Agua De Beber". CD

Marcos ValleNova Bossa Nova ... CD
Far Out (UK), 1998. Used ... $6.99
Very sharp late 90s recording by Marcos Valle, and his first LP as a leader in years! Recorded for the Far Out label in London, and supervised by Joe Davis, the man who's brought so much great Brazilian music to the world. The record's got a great modern bossa nova feel, with a good electric sound, and lots of nice moody grooves on piano and guitar, plus nice vocals by Marcos himself. The album fits in nicely with the other stuff on the Far Out label, and has a similar modern Brazilian groove to the label's Azimuth record, or the Friends From Rio project. But of course, this one's also got lots of nice touches from Marcos himself, who's mellowed a bit, but can still lay down bossa tracks like the best of them. Titles include "Novo Visual", "Freio Aerodinamico", "Mushi Mushi", "Nordeste", "Bar Ingles", "Bahia Blue", "Cidade Aberto", and a remake of "Vontage De Rever Voce". CD

This bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". CD

VariousBossa E Bossa (5CD box set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Early 60s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $53.99
A bossa nova treasure trove – 10 rare albums from the Brazilian underground of the 60s – all appearing here on CD for the first time ever! These sets go way past the bossa stereotypes of the time – not just breathy vocals, or jazzy piano trios, but a wealth of interesting instrumental twists and turns – set to rhythms that often have a fair bit of samba in the mix, as you might find on early records by Walter Wanderley too! The package is a wonderful companion to the similar Bossa 60s box from Discobertas – and like that one, it features five CDs, which each have two albums, original artwork, and sound that's way better than the poor vinyl used on the original indie label pressings. Modes run from vocal to instrumental, and include a rich variety of sounds that will take you way past Getz/Gilberto and all the bigger bossa sounds of the time. Includes the albums Musica 18 Kilates and Balona E O Successo by Celio Balona; Weekend No Rio, Weekend Em Guarapari, Trio Vagalume Na Bossa, and Volume 4 by Helio Mendes; and Sambas Na Passarela, Ritmos Na Passarela, Ferias No Drink, and Convida A Dancar by Celso Murilo.

Workshop Jazz, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very cool. This is one of the rare jazz LPs on Motown's short-lived Jazz Workshop subsidiary, and it's also one of the best records to appear on the imprint. Trombonist George Bohanon (who you've heard on countless Motown and soul sessions) shows the world his jazz chops in a groovy little combo with Kirk Lightsey on piano, and a very young Cecil McBee on bass! The group's augmented in parts by extra percussionists to open up the bossa sound a bit, and they play a set of material that's nearly all original, with compositions by Bohannon, McBee, and Lightsey. Tracks include "Simpatica", "Mioki", "El Rig", "Conmigo", and "El Rio". A tough one to find, too! LP, Vinyl record album

A haunting live set from Baden – recorded in 1990 at the Rio Jazz Club, and featuring Baden playing solo guitar in the moody style he used often in his later work. Baden's style of playing is much more contemplative than in the bossa years – picking up some of the darkness of the Afro Samba era, expressing his talents with a manner that is at once confident and contemplative. Titles include "Gracioso", "Violao Vadio", "Jongo", "Formosa", "Samba Do Aviao", "Variacoes Sobre Asa Branca", "Rosa", "Gente Humilde", and "Samba Em Preludio". CD

✨✧ VariousBlue Bossa – Vols 1 to 3 – Cool Cuts From The Tropics (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

✨✧ Friends From RioFriends From Rio 2014 ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative effort between a range of Brazilian and British talents – served up in a style that bridges the gap between older bossa and more contemporary modes! The music is perfect from the ground up – not a cheesy bossa remix project, but a true blend of all the best elements, served up in a rich new style. The project gets key Incognito-style help from Daniel "Venom" Maunick, and a real Azymuth pedigree from Alex Malheiros – and the whole thing features a great range of different singers, including Hyldon, Robertinho Silva, Aleh Ferreira, Ivan Matheus, Denise Pinaud, Sabrina Malheiros, and Carlos Dafe – each wrapped up in a sweet blend of Fender Rhodes, organ, riffing guitar, and sweet jazzy horns. Titles include "So Resta A Porta Se Abrir", "Mas Que Nada", "Garota", "Aguai", "Casino Bangu", "Batucada Bidu", "Anthemia", "Leita De Pedra", and "Mulher Malagueta". CD

Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really great way of using sustained notes on flute – which creates this dreamy vibe that's almost electric, especially when offset by acoustic basslines, percussion, and piano – all used at a level that's right up there with the best from Morricone or Trovajoli at the time! There's also wonderful drifting vocals in the mix – courtesy of Nora Orlandi – and titles include "Round Nassau", "Swingin Easy In Tanganika", "Rio Zona Sul", "L'Amica", and "Taxi Cab 67". Features two bonus tracks – "L'Amica (ripresa)" and "The Bitter Truth (inst)". LP, Vinyl record album

The record features Menescal's guitar upfront in the mix – with bouncy bossa rhythms, souped up by electronics, all handled with the right amount of subtlety on the best tracks.

DVDSaravah – A Film By Pierre Barouh (DVD) ... DVD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
An amazing film directed by French singer/songwriter Pierre Barouh – shot in Rio in 1969, and a beautiful documentary of the music that inspired him over the years! There's a lovingly straightforward approach to the film that we totally love – as Barouh captures a few of his musical idols in relaxed, friendly settings that include a bit of their local environment, and some intimate performances as well. Given that the film was done in the same key early years as Barouh's Saravah record label, there's a freshness here that rivals the best recorded work on that imprint – a willingness to cross the boundaries between Paris and Rio, and a warmth that brings together both cultures beautifully. French film making alongside bossa and samba – what could be better? Includes performances by Baden Powell, Paulinho Da Viola, Maria Bethania, Joao Da Baiana, and Pixinguinha. DVD

A lost bossa classic from Wanda De Sah – aka Wanda Sa, the wife of Edu Lobo, and a singer who worked with Sergio Mendes in his pre-Brasil 66 days! The album's got a wonderfully laidback feel – languid, yet jazzy, with the feel of some of Astrud Gilberto's best work on Verve, yet with vocals that are possibly better – thanks to Wanda's pedigree in Brazilian pop. Recordings were done in California, not Rio – and arrangements are handled by the great Jack Marshall – who's got a strong ear for keeping things interesting with a mix of strings, Latin rhythms, and Capitol pop shadings. Titles include "Aqua De Beber", "Ho Ba La La", "Sweet Happy Life", "The Dreamer", and a great version of "Aruanda". CD

Philips/Elemental (France), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Beautiful early duets from Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – much more of a bossa-styled album than any of the late 60s Tropicalia albums from the pair! The set's got a really wonderful sort of feel – bossa at some level, but also with some of the gentle darkness that Caetano and Gal would bring to Brazilian popular music more strongly in the next few years – an approach that's somewhat subtle, but often somewhat different than albums of the generation on labels like Elenco or Forma. The orchestrations are somewhat full, but never too much so – and tracks include a fair bit of early original compositions by Caetano. Titles include "Candeias", "Zabele", "Um Dia", "Avarandado", "Maria Joana", "Onde Eu Nasci Passa Um Rio", "Coracao Vagabundo", and "Quem me Dera". LP, Vinyl record album

Like Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66, Vox Populi have an approach that mixes male and female vocals into a sweet harmony lead – laid out over a sweet set of jazzy grooves, in a way that creates a wonderfully airy sound. The whole thing's a sunny link between 60s LA and the beaches of Rio – with a globally grooving sound that makes it still sound pretty darn fresh to our ears! A wonderful discovery, filled with many great tunes that include "Ah!", "Eu", "Domingo", "Caleidoscopio", "Tornado", "Asteroide Sonoro", "Gira Girou", "Vera Cruz", and "Cidade Grande". CD

A really wonderful survey of Brazilian instrumental modes at mid-century – a set that moves between choro, samba, and early bossa styles – and also opens up into some other genres as well! The focus here is on key instrumentalists – players with a strong ability to improvise and solo, often in smaller group settings, on shorter tracks that really make them focus on serving up a lot of personality in a very tight space! As with other titles on the Fremeaux label, the package is a wonderful combination of history and listening pleasure – packed with a whopping 63 tracks in all – titles that include "Magoado" by Dilermando Reis, "Chorando Baixinho" by Abel Ferreira, "Monotonia" by Paulo Moura, "Primeiro Amor" by Radames Gnattali, "Grauna" by Jacob Do Bandolim, "Pedacinho Do Ceu" by Waldir Azevedo, "Insonia" by Baden Powell, "Espinha De Bacalhau" by Severino Araujo, "Melancolia" by Luiz Americano, "Luzes Do Rio" by Luis Bonfa, "Encabulado" by Jose Menezes, and "Dinora" by Altamiro Carrilho.

2 of the best albums from Nancy Ames – a singer that was usually just ok, but who really sounded great when she picked up a Latin groove! Latin Pulse has Nancy singing some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman – blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". Spiced With Brasil is even better – offering up bossa with a great American twist! Nancy comes up with some great bossa nova numbers, set to arrangements by Stu Phillips – and the package has all the sunniness of a summer LA afternoon at the beach – with the driving groove of a pop bossa session from Rio. The album's perennial favorite is Nancy's remake of "Mas Que Nada" (done here as "Pow Pow Pow") – but there's loads of other wonderful numbers, and the whole album's great! Titles include "Laia La Daia", "Love's Like Wine", "So Nice", and "A Man & A Woman". As the song says – Pow Pow Pow! CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "He Wore The Green Beret" and "Cry Softly". CD

Right in line with stuff in the Takamura/Soul Bossa groove, and although a few years old, still pretty fresh (and a lot lesser known, since they sort of got eclipsed by some other groups). CD

Verve, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Walter Wanderley albums ever – and a record that moves past the more familiar bossa trio style used on his hits for Verve, into groovier new territory with added players who include Dom Um Romao on drums and Marcos Valle on guitar! And not only is the lineup expanded, but the styles are too – as Wanderley moves away from the straighter bossa and samba jazz of his roots, into the world of more unusual, more complicated rhythms that were showing up in the Brazilian scene at the end of the 60s. Marcos Valle's contribution is felt strongly here – as the album includes a fantastic instrumental take on his classic "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" (aka "Os Grilos") – plus other Valle compositions that include "Ainda Mais Lindo", "Batucada", and "E Preciso Cantar". Other tracks include "Wave", "So What's New", and "O Barquinho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Unusual pressing - 60s German, without a gatefold cover.)

✨✧ Som TresSom Tres Show ... CD
Odeon/Bomba (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You won't find a groovier group than Som Tres – and if you need proof, check out this fantastic album! The group were a post-bossa trio led by pianist Cesar Camargo Mariano – and they grooved with a sound that started with the core piano trio sound of the bossa age, but which was also expanded a lot with late 60s orchestrations. The result is an incredibly strong batch of tunes that groove from the get-go – and which soar along the best baroque lines of the Blue Brazil generation. The whole album's great – with some light vocals, and lots of cool instrumentals – filled with tracks that include "Leonardo", "Amazonas", "Frevo Rasgado", "Sa Marina", "Jungle", "Balanca Zona Sul", "Emilia", and "Watch What Happens".

Bossa Jazz Trio (Ed Lincoln)Isto E Bossa Nova Vol 2 ... CD
Movie Play (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $1.99
Ed Lincoln leads the Bossa Jazz Trio through a set of sparkling renditions of 14 bossa tunes that include "Wave", "Que Tal Mo?", "Por Causa De Voce", "Insensatez", and "A Felicidade". In fact, the "trio" may just be Lincoln himself – as he arranged the whole album, and appears to play all the tracks on his own keyboards with programmed rhythmic backing. The set sounds like some of Lincoln's recent work – so if you dig that, you'll dig this all-instrumental outing. CD

VariousNicola Conte Presents Viagem – A Collection Of 60s Brazilian Bossa Nova & Jazz Samba (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... About June 1, 2016 (delayed)
A massive collection of bossa nova gems from the 60s – all hand-picked by Nicola Conte with as much care for sound as his own contemporary work on the Schema label! The tracks here are pulled mostly from the RGE label's landmark 60s albums in Brazil – albums that are awash in jazzy grooves, blue-tinged vocals, and some of the darker corners that always make older bossa albums worth searching out! Some of the titles here are familiar from single reissues, but there's a lot more here that aren't – and the music is put together with a sense if space, sound, and timing that's clearly the result of Conte's careful input on the release. Titles include "Samadhi" by Tenorio Jr, "Bambe-Lo" by Edgard & Os Tais, "Zimbo Samba" by Zimbo Trio, "Balanco Do Mar" by Ana Lucia, "Canto De Ossanha" by Trio Maraya, "Tokio" by Hector Costita Sexteto, "Cidade Vazia" by Djalma Dias & Sambossa 5, "Samba Em Blue" by Sansa Trio, "Vamos Embora Uau" by Bossa Jazz Trio, "Preconceito" by Yvette, "Samblues" by Cesar Camargo Mariano, "Gosto De Ser Como Sou" by Claudia & Brazilian Octopus, and "Vivo Sonhando" by Wanda Sa.

✨✧ Lennie Dale with Bossa TresUm Show De Bossa ... CD
Elenco (Japan), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A live bit of bossa vocals from Lennie Dale – recording here with some cooking accompaniment from the Bossa Tres trio! The format is very spontaneous and relaxed – similar to an American live jazz vocal date of the time, but with a bossa groove instead – one that's a perfectly showcase for Dale's lively vocals and strong sense of showmanship – singing here in both English and Portuguese! Luis Carlos Vinhas' piano playing sparkles throughout, and although recorded in a club, the set has all the crystal clarity you'd expect from the Elenco studio sides of the time. Many tunes are done in pot-pourri fashion – shifting easily between themes of a few different tunes – and titles include "No Dollar Bills", "Day In Day Out", "Old Devil Moon", "O Samba Da Minha Terra", "Improvisacao Bossa Tres", "Bim Bom", and "Samba Do Aviao".

Balona E Seu ConjuntoGarota De Ipanema ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
A rare one from 60s Brazil – and a really great small combo bossa session with some very unusual instrumentation! At their core, the Balona group seem to be a bossa piano trio – but many tracks here have a little "something else" – vibes, electric guitar, or trumpet – often used sparingly but with enough punch to really help shade in the sound of the tunes, even with a few jagged notes. A few numbers have harmony vocals – ala Tamba Trio, but perhaps a bit less modern – and the overall sound is pretty darn great! Titles include "Balonadas", "Aurora", "Meu Balanco", "Balanco 67", "Insensatez", "Tema Para Dois", "Vem Menina", "Duas Contas", and "Ceu E Mar". CD

✨✧ Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the bossa flavor promised in the title – kind of a post-bossa version of the bossa jazz trio style of the 60s – a bit like the records that Tamba Trio and Milton Banana were cutting in the 70s, but maybe even better overall! The percussionists are all great – the album features five of them, all Brazilian – and they work alongside bassist Toni Botero and drummer Elis Siabo. Titles include "Samba Medley", "Mood Island", "UFO", "Midnight Sun Never Set", and "Diane". CD

VariousBossa Nova – E Sal E Sol E Sul ... CD
Albatroz (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $14.99
New recordings of bossa classics – done in a sparkling modern style, but still with a relatively classic groove. Roberto Menescal arranged most of the tracks, and also plays guitar on many numbers – and performers include Marcos Valle, Claudette Soares, Leny Andrade, Cladia Telles, Tito Madi, Os Cariocas, and Carlos Lyra. Includes "Samba De Aviao", "Pode Ir", "Samba De Verao", "Nos E O Mar", "O Barquihno", "Chega De Saudade", and "Lobo Bobo". Nice stuff, and kind of in the Lumiar vein. CD

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $34.99
A killer compilation of rare Italian soundtrack treasures from the mid 60s to mid 70s – a decade's span of time with myriad groovy influences! Esterno Giorno is the second in a pair (so far...we're hoping for a series) of lovingly assembled soundtrack funk compilations put together by the Four Flies label, who were granted access to long neglected corners of the RCA archives. It's a stylistically fruitful period to say the least, with shades of the mod, psych, funk, soul, prog eras – smartly put together here with common elements holding it together in a cohesive whole – thanks in large part of driving percussion throughout. It's fantastic stuff, most of which has gone unreleased since the films screened back in the day! 16 tracks in all: "Stasera Mi Butto" by Gianfranco Riverberi, "Amore Formula 2" by Guycen, "Nell'Anno Della Luna" by Gino Conte, "Lovemaker" by Armando Trovajoli, "Nude Calde E Pure" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Posto Ideale Per Uccidere" by Bruno Lauzi, "Le Belve" by Nico Fidenco, "Femmina" by Carlo Savina, LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNouvelle Vague 2 – Pop, Mambo, Cha Cha, Jazz, & Bossa Nova With A French Touch (with download) ... LP
We Want Sounds (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
A cool portrait of Paris in the late 50s/early 60s years of the new wave – served up here in a collection of music from soundtracks, jazz albums, and lots of French vocal treasures from the time! The grooves definitely run the gamut of styles promised in the title – with an especially strong focus on the way that Latin rhythms really came into the Parisian modes of music, and helped create fresh instrumental interplay that opened the doors to a new variety of vocal expression too! The set list is great – and mixes favorites from the films of Truffaut, Goddard, and others with even more obscure French records of the time – and this second volume features tracks that include "Quand Elle Danse" by Dario Moreno, "Sidonie" by Brigitte Bardot, "Roland Reve" by Michel Legrand, "Chanson De Lola" by Jacqueline Dano, "Charlie" by Georges Delerue, "New York Herald Tribune" by Martial Solal, "Sans Toi" by Corinne Marchand, "Tout L'Amour" by Dalida, "A La Colette" by Christiane Legrand, "Tout Doucement" by Les Blue Stars, "Ting Toung" by Sacha Distel, "Jolie Mome" by Leo Ferre, and "Je Bois" by Boris Vian.

✨✧ Hank Mobley with The Kenny Drew TrioBlue Bossa (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare live appearance from the great Hank Mobley – a player who wasn't always that present on the European scene, but is heard here in a strong Copenhagen concert with pianist Kenny Drew! The format's a bit similar to other American tenor dates of the time – especially those of Dexter Gordon – as Drew's trio – with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Heath on drums – provides a solid rhythmic groove while Mobley really stretches out with long-spun solos on some extended tracks! The format's very different than most other recordings that Hank made in the 60s – especially during these later years – and although the date has a bit of a "broadcast" quality from the way it was recorded, Mobley's tenor shines through on long readings of "Summertime", "Workout", "Blue Bossa", and "Alone Together".

Discobertas (Brazil), 1960s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little box set – filled with 10 rare bossa nova albums from the Brazilian underground of the 60s – almost all of which we'd never heard before! The records here were mostly issued on small labels at the time – the kind of sets that never circulated widely outside of Brazil, and which often have unusual and striking sounds that are quite different from mainstream bossa work on labels like Verve or Elenco! There's a fair bit of jazz on most albums, and the instrumentation varies nicely throughout – sometimes more sax up front, sometimes more acoustic guitar, or offbeat horn arrangements, odd percussion, and lots of other sweet touches! Each CD features two full albums, completely with cover art and other details of the records – and the set features the albums Balanco E Bossa Nova by Ritmistas Da Bossa, Sambalanco by Orquesta Moderna De Samba, Isso E Bossa Nova Mesmo by Conjunto Sambossa, Saxsambando by Os Saxsambistas Brasileiros, O Balanco E A Bossa by Conjunto Masterplay, Samba Do Bom by Conjunto Samba De Balanco, Samba Pra Frente by Samba Trio, A Musica Maravilhosa De Antonio Carlos Jobim by Bossa Brass, and the self-titled 1964 album by Os Azes De Bossa.
