Maria BethaniaCarta De Amor (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99
Right from the start, Maria Bethania showed herself as an artist who could almost shine better in a live setting than a studio one – from her early records, to famous albums that helped define the sound of MPB, to recent gems like this one – which has the singer still very much at the height of her powers! Maria's got this commanding presence that makes us hang upon each and every word – yet she also finds a way to never push things too far, or ever sound like she's forcing her emotion – a quality that may well come from the album's backings from Wagner Tiso, who gives Bethania the same sort of quiet drama he brought to Milton Nascimento's music back in the 70s. The passage of years have done nothing to hold back Maria's tremendous vocals – and the DVD features all the music from both volumes of the CD – with titles that include "Cancoes E Momentos", "Sangrando", "Salmo", "Na Primeira Manha", "Maria Maria", "Cais", "Calunia", "A Dona Do Raio E Do Vento", "Fera Ferida", "Festa", "Lua Branca", "Viola Meu Bem", "Carta De Amor", "Minha Senhora", "Mensagem", and "Quixabeira Reconvexo".

Gal CostaPrograma Ensaio 1994 – TV Cultura (DVD) ... DVD
Studio Canal (Brazil), 1994. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the greatest Gal Costa work we've heard from the 90s – a live TV performance done in the intimate style of the Ensaio program, featuring Gal with very spare small combo backing, in a mode that's quite different than any of her records from the time! There's a spontaneity here that's totally great – a side of Gal that we're really surprised to see, and which takes us back to the genius that emerged on her first few important records of the late 60s and early 70s. Overall, there's a relatively laidback feel to the instrumentation – letting Gal dominate on vocals, and also giving her the space to talk a bit about her life and music in between some tracks. Show runs for 86 minutes long, and titles I nclude "Tropicalia", "Baby", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Olhos Verdes", "As Time Goes By", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Canto Triste", "Folhetim", "Joao Valentao", and "Desde Que O Samba E Samba".
