Duduka Da FonsecaDuduka Da Fonseca Trio Plays Dom Salvador ... CD
Sunnyside, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One Brazilian jazz great pays tribute to another – drummer Duduka Da Fonseca, who works here in a whole set of classic tunes from the songbook of pianist Dom Salvador! Both Duduka and Dom emigrated from Brazil to the US in their early years – where they found a welcome audience, and a way to really expand their musical palette – and back in the 80s, Da Fonseca even played in Salvador's group for awhile – which makes him a perfect artist for a project like this! And yet, the music is also nicely different than Dom Salvador's older recordings – given that the leader here is a drummer, not a pianist – which definitely gives a different focus to the record, although David Feldman does a pretty great job on the piano throughout. The group also features Guto Wirtti on bass, and Jaques Morelenbaum plays cello on one track – and titles include "Para Elis", "Samba Do Malandrinho", "Transition", "Farjuto", "Antes Da Chuva", "Clauditi", "Gafieira", and "Tematrio".

Zelia FonsecaO Terceiro Olho Da Abelha ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Fantastic work from Zelia Fonseca – singer, songwriter, and acoustic guitarist – working here in a special space that reminds us of some of our favorite female talents from the Brazilian scene of the 60s and 70s! The sound isn't bossa, nor any sort of easy mode to label – a bit like Joyce in that Fonseca has created a special style of her own, one so unique, we'll beg her pardon for trying to use Joyce as a reference point in anything but the positive presence of her music. Instrumentation is relatively spare on most numbers – a bit of additional acoustic bass, percussion, or other elements – but even these small additions resonate beautifully, thanks to the power of Zelia in the lead – and the wonderfully resonant style of recording. Titles include "No Ar", "Coracao Abelha", "Fora Da Rede", "Amoramento", "Trilha Do Mel", and "Baile Do Desassossego". CD

✨✧ Roberto FonsecaABUC ... CD
Impulse, 2016. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most hard-hitting albums we've ever heard from pianist Roberto Fonseca – a set that deeply digs back into an older Afro-Cuban sound – as you might guess from the title's backward-spelling of Cuba! The music here is surprisingly rich and full – not just Cuban flavoring on jazz piano lines, but a well-conceived, fully-formed approach that mixes Roberto's fierce piano lines with larger percussion and horns, and some very strong acoustic bass from Yandy Martinez – which really drives the harder-grooving songs in a great way! We're often a bit suspicious of projects like this, but we're totally in love with this record – as there's a vibe that's at once respectful of the classics, but totally brand-new – and produced to perfection, without any fakeness or gimmicks at all. Titles include "Soul Guardians", "Sagrado Corazon", "Family", "Tierra Santa", "Tumbao De La Unidad", "Afro Mambo", and "Asere Monina Bonco". CD

Quarteto Em CyJanelas Abertas ... CD
Fina Flor (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
The lovely sound of Quarteto Em Cy never fails to please our ears – that sublime female harmony mode the quartet first forged during the bossa generation, and which has continued to evolve so strongly over the years! This album's a thing of subtle beauty – never overdone, never trying too hard to push its own strengths – yet always served up with the care and confidence that's always marked the group. They never hide behind their harmonies, and always manage to bring each of their four individual senses to play when they sing together – which makes for music that's as moving as it is beautiful. Features guest appearances by Carlos Lyra, Celso Fonseca, Cristovao Bastos, and Zelia Duncan – on titles that include "O Negicio E Amar", "Mudanca De Lua", "Futuros Amantes", "Vim Dizer Que Sim", "Samba Torto", "Tristeza E Solidao", and "Cartas Da Vida".
