Eliana & Booker PittmanNews From Brazil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Odeon/Think (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $24.99
A classic set of jazzy samba by the legendary Eliana Pittman – one that's served up with some great bossa compositions and sweet larger backings from Maestro Gaya! Eliana's working here with Booker Pittman, who the liner notes bill as an American jazzman (from what we can tell with our broken Portuguese!) – and although he gets in a few saxophone solos on some tracks, the album's mostly Eliana's own, with vocals upfront in the mix, and a full, rich, slightly soulful set of backings from Gaya – all done in a nice mode that's a bit of a precursor to the later Blue Brazil sound. Titles include "Vagamente", "O Passarinho", "O Barquinho", "Vens So", "Mister Bossa Nova", "Voice Vai", "Amor No Samba", and "Nos E O Mar". CD

✨✧ Eliana PittmanEliana Pittman (1972) ... LP
Odeon/Amazon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great album from Eliana Pitman – one of the more soulful singers of early 70s Brazil, working here in a baroquely grooving style that's every bit the best side of the Odeon Records scene! The arrangements have a slightly percolated style that blends orchestrations with small jazz combo touches, acoustic instrumentation with electric, in the spirit of work by Marcos Valle or a number of other similar artists from the time. Production is great too, with a spacious approach to the vocals that sits in contrast to a more compressed style used on the instrumentation! Titles include "Pernambuco", "Murmurando", "Benzim", "Bezouro Manganga", "Ladainha", "E Dinheiro So", "Treze Carneirinhos", and "Beira Mar". LP, Vinyl record album
(Please note the sleeve corner is slightly creased.)
