✨✧ Celso Fonseca & Ronaldo BastosJuventude – Slow Motion Bossa Nova ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 2001. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Slow Motion Bossa Nova certainly fits this one – a beautiful album of lush jazzy arrangements, done in the 60s style of artists like Roberto Menescal or Lalo Schifrin, but with added touches of soulful vocals by Celso Fonseca. The assemblage of musicians on the record is great – and players feature old and young bossa talents that include Joao Donato, Robertinho Silva, Marcio Montarroyos, Luiz Alves, Daniel Jobim, and Jaques Morelenbaum. The album's far more than a 60s bossa reprise – as it's filled with original tunes that sparkle with the gentle easiness of some of Ivan Lins' best work of years past. Titles include "Satelite Bar", "Samba E Tudo", "A Voz Do Coracao", "Dylan Em Madrid", "Feito Pra Voce", "Miles Ahead Of Time", and "O Sorriso De Angkor". CD

✨✧ Duduka Da FonsecaJive Samba ... CD
Zoho, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lively trio work from drummer Duduka Da Fonseca – a set that has all the Brazilian touches you might expect from the title, but which also sparkles with lots of straighter jazz moments too! Duduka's as strong as ever on the kit, and the album really draws a lot of warmth from the piano lines of David Feldman – who blocks out the ballads with this gentle groove that's especially nice, then really catches fire on some of the more upbeat numbers – which also have Fonseca reminding us of his deftness on the drums. Guto Wirtti plays bass in the trio, and one track includes tenor from Paulo Levi – on titles that include "Jive Samba", "Lucky Southern", "Pensativa", "Clouds", "Peresina", "Recorda Me", and "Sco's Bossa".

✨✧ Celso FonsecaLike Nice ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from Celso Fonseca – a set that really takes the singer to a whole new level, and may even find him a wider global audience as well! The album begins with the sublime title cut – an original by Celso, with beautiful English lyrics – and throughout the record, songs mix English and Portuguese in this really lovely way – scored to these jazzy backings that are augmented by just the right, light use of strings – which almost gives the whole thing the feel of some sophisticated late 60s jazz vocal album, although one that's still got plenty of Brazilian touches, too! Acoustic guitar underscores some bossa elements in the music, but the set's hardly just a bossa record at all – and instead, really feels like Fonseca making a bid to become one of the best male jazz singers on the planet, which he might well do with a record like this. Titles include "Rio 56", "Like Nice", "Road To Paradise", "Cancao Que Vem", "Meu Silencio", "January In The Tropics", "Zum Zum", "Stormy", and "O Que Vai Sobrar". CD

David AmramLatin Jazz Celebration ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $0.99
An early 80s look at Latin jazz from David Amram – with a who's who of Latin jazz players and stellar jazz musicians of other realms – including Paquito D'Riveria, Candido, Machito & Machito Jr, Brazilian percussion guru Duduca Fonseca, David Fathead Newman, Jimmy Knepper, Pepper Adams and others others! What could have come out as clinical or academic comes through with passion and affection, partly because Amram could get such incredible players on the record, but mostly because the multi-instrumentalist ring leader is genuinely celebrating the music rather than simply replicating it. Includes "En Memoria De Chano Pozo, "New York Charanga", "Brazilian Memories", "Celebration", "Song Of The Rainforest" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a sticker spot, promo stamp, and light wear.)

BossacucanovaUma Batida Diferente ... CD
Six Degrees, 2004. Used ... $4.99
You gotta hand it to these guys – releasing 2 albums at nearly the same time, yet somehow managing to come across sounding nice and fresh! Unlike the Ipanema Lounge album (issued weeks before this one), Uma Batida Diferente has a style that's much more in keeping with the group's earlier sessions for Six Degrees – an updating of classic bossa styles through clever use of modern rhythms and electronics – in a mode that really respects its roots, yet still offers up something new. As part of the old/new diad that drives the group, they're working here with classic bossa talents Marcos Valle, Orlandivo, and Roberto Menescal (father of one of the group's members) – plus more current artists Celso Fonseca and Zuco 103. Titles include "Bom Dia Rio", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Previsao", "Queria", "Just A Samba", "Bonita", and "Vai Levando". CD

Claudio RoditiBrazilliance X 4 ... CD
Resonance, 2008. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Claudio Roditi's always been a player we can trust to get Brazilian grooves right – and this sweet little session is no exception to that rule! The date's got Claudio's brightly-blown trumpet lines soaring nicely over tight rhythms from a group that features Helio Alves on piano, Leonardo Cioglia on bass, and Duduka Da Fonseca on drums – a group that swings with a gentle groove in all the right parts, and knows how to put on a bit of a bite when they need to, too! Titles include "Pro Zeca", "E Nada Mais", "A Vontade Mesmo", "Tune UP", "Dinner By Five", "Song For Nana", and "Tema Para Duduka". CD

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Plus James Last Orchestra ... CD
Verve/Jazzclub (Germany), 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare 80s set from Astrud Gilberto – cut at a time when she was hardly doing any new recording at all! As you'll guess from the title, the album has Gilberto teaming up with German groovemaker James Last – who handles all the orchestrations for the record, and shows a surprising sensitivity towards Astrud's bossa styles in his music. Last can sometimes be a bit over the top, but he's quite subtle here – leaving lots of room for Gilberto's sweetly sensitive vocals, and the music of her core combo, which features Romero Lubambo on guitar and Dudu Da Fonseca on percussion. Paulo Jobim guests on vocals and guitar on a few tracks – and titles include "Aqua De Beber", "Champagne & Caviar", "Samba Do Soho", and "Saci". CD

✨✧ Claudio RoditiSimpatico ... CD
Resonance, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great follow-up to Claudio Roditi's Braziliance record – and like that set, a record that's filled with a similarly warm and breezy groove! There's a range of bossa and post-bossa elements at work in the mix, plus some slight Latin jazz touches too – and Roditi's horn sounds wonderful in the setting, really stretching out with these well-blown lines over work from a group that includes Romero Lubambo on guitar, Michael Dease on trombone, Helio Alves on piano, John Lee on bass, and Duduka Da Fonseca on drums. All songs are originals by Roditi – and titles include "Slow Fire", "Piccolo Blues", "A Dream For Kristen", "Blues For Ronni", "Vida Nova", "Winter Dreams", and "Spring Samba". CD
