Ivan LinsJuntos ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1984. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A stone classic from the great Ivan Lins – a set recorded at a time when he was fast becoming a big name on the global scene, not just in Brazil – thanks to his wonderful sense of songwriting and lyricism! The album's almost a celebration of all that Lins had done so far – put together with close collaborators Gilson Peranzzetta and Vitor Martins – and done with lots of great help from famous guests who include MPB4, Erasmo Carlos, Nana Caymmi, Tim Maia, Elis Regina, and Patti Austin. The arrangements are wonderful – sophisticated and offbeat, and every bit as compelling as Lins' work from the 70s – and titles include "Abre Alas", "Comecar De Novo", "Novo Tempo", "Formigueiro", "Dinorah Dinorah", and "Juntos". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing, including the insert.)

Ivan LinsLove Dance ... CD
Reprise, 1989. Used ... $4.99
A record with a cheesy title and cover, but with a sound that's completely sublime – that transcendent vocal approach and incredible songwriting that makes just about any record by Ivan Lins a real treasure! The set's not as experimental as his earliest work, but it's got a rock-solid sound that puts Lins right up there in the company of the world's greatest singer/songwriters – a range that would include not just his countrymen like Caetano Veloso, but also some of the greats from the French scene of the 60s. Titles include "Marlena", "Velas", "Art Of Survival", "Comecar De Novo", "Evolution", "You Moved Me To This", and "Who's In Love Here". CD
(Out of print, please note that there is some clear tape covering a few tears on the booklet.)

Ivan LinsMaos ... LP
Polygram (Brazil), 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A beautiful later album from Ivan Lins – recorded in that wonderfully mature style he developed in the 80s, a mixture of his earlier vocal work, with touches of jazz, and some of the Brazilian soulfulness of the Milton Nascimento generation. The backings on the tracks is relatively electric – produced with a lot of "space", in a style that helps the instruments drift around Lins' always-captivating vocals. The album's got a soaring righteousness that prevails despite a few tinnier touches here and there – and it's filled with strong tracks that include "Vieste", "Maos", "Illuminados", "Paixo Secreta", and "O Ceu Mudou". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

Ivan LinsSerie Bis ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Ivan Lins did some of his best work for EMI/Odeon during the late 70s, and although most of his individual albums from that era are long out of print, this nice 28 track set brings together a lot of great moments from that time, with 2CDs worth of material to choose from! Titles include "Dinorah, Dinorah", "Saindo De Mim", "Deseperar, Jamais", "Aparecida", "Maos De Afeto", "Sertaneja", "Temporal", "Um Fado", "Cantoria", "Aos Nossos Filhos", and "A Noite". And we're not sure, but we think the track list is different than the recent 2CD Meus Momentos set – also on EMI. CD

✨✧ Ivan Lins & Geraldo FlachMuito Bom Tocar Juntos ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums we've ever heard from this legendary Brazilian singer – at least within the past decade or so – a fantastic reunion with pianist/arranger Geraldo Flach, who gives the music a jazzy flow that's totally wonderful! Both Ivan Lins and Geraldo play piano and keyboards – so most tracks have a keys-heavy sound that's great, with mostly acoustic underpinning the music – creating waves of sound, even on the mellow cuts, which seem to unlock the jazziest side of the singer's vocals! The whole thing almost feels more like some lost live date from the 70s than a 21st Century performance – and is a reminder of that special sophistication that some of the true geniuses in Brazilian music can give us. Titles include 'Novo Tempo", "Ultimo Desejo", "O Mapa Da Cidade", "As Pastorinhas", "O Voo Da Aguia", "Estrela Guia", and "Lembra De Mim". CD

✨✧ Ivan Lins & Gilson PeranzzettaCumplicidade ... CD
Fina Flor (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful setting for the lyrical talents of Ivan Lins – a set that has the singer working alongside pianist Gilson Peranzzetta – but at a level that's maybe even more expressive than some of his recent albums with fuller arrangements! Gilson is a partner of Lins in a legacy that goes back to the 70s – and both artists play keyboards and piano here, interweaving rhythms and lines in this way that's light, but quite powerful – yet still spare, which leaves Ivan to dominate the proceedings strongly with his vocals – and remind us that his singing helped transform a generation, and open up a global market for his songs. Titles include "Abre Alas", "Antes Que Seja Tarde", "Lembra De Mim", "Ai Ai Ai Ai", "Love Dance", "Setembro", and "Temporal". CD

Milton Banana TrioLinha De Passe ... LP
RCA (Brazil), 1984. Very Good ... $9.99
A bit later vintage than some of Milton's 60s bossa work, but one of his nicest albums from the 80s – and filled with great little jazzy tracks that are tighter than some of his other albums from the time! The group's a trio, and the tracks include many nice ones by some of the better MPB composers of the 70s. Titles include "Serrado" by Djavan, "Sampa" by Caetano Veloso, "Linha De Passe" by Joao Bosco, "Meu Giri" by Chico Buarque, and "Velas Icadas" by Ivan Lins. Nice – and hard to find!

Paul MauriatC'Est La Vie/Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2 ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. Used ... $9.99
A pair of albums from French maestro Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD! C'Est La Vie is from a generation when so many other artists were moving their easy instrumental styles into disco grooves – but Paul Mauriat nicely finds his own path forward, and instead keeps things mellow – but while adding in some slinky funk elements that really make the record great! There's some nice keyboards, edgey guitar, and even sly drums in the larger backings – and the song choices keep things pretty groovy too – on titles that include "Ou Sont Les Femmes", "Il A Niege Sur Yesterday", "Lettre A France", "Pulstar", "Ainsi Soit-Il", "Desert De Neige", and "I Feel Love". On Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2, Paul Mauriat returns to the Brazilian vibe he explored on the previous volume – which means that the set mixes samba percussion, light bossa elements, and even some slight 70s funk with the maestro's more familiar charts – on a set of tracks that includes work by Caetano Veloso, Antonio Carlos E Jocafi, Baden Powell, and Ivan Lins! Titles include instrumental readings of "Foi Assim", "Pra Que Chorar", "Amigo", "Sonhos", "Odara", "D Joao", and "A Noite Vai Chegar". CD

✨✧ MPB4Palhacos & Reis ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1974. Very Good- ... $19.99
A great album by this legendary Brazilian vocal group, and one that proves that they were still evolving their style nicely in the 70s. Some of the tracks feature the funky samba style that was showing up in other Brazilian recordings of the time, but the best bits have compilicated arrangements, with jazzy overtones, and rich harmony vocals in the best tradition of the group. Ivan Lins did a nice arrangement of the title cut, which is one of his own compositions, and other tracks include a good electric version of Milton Nascimento's "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", Edu Lobo's "Cheganca", and the baroque "Nosso Mal", which features a guest appearance by Quarteto Em Cy.

Wanda SaCa Entre Nos ... CD
Fina Flor (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful work from Wanda Sa – the Brazilian singer who first rose to prominence during the bossa years of the 60s, but who only seems to have gotten better with age! This set is a true testament to all the growth Wanda has experienced over the years – music that has a depth and subtle power she never had in her youth – and which also is a nice change from some of Sa's more bossa-oriented sets of the past decades! There's definitely some bossa nova in the presentation, but the conception is much richer, and the performance much more deeply personal – less concerned with an overall style or sound, and very focused on Wanda's individual performances of the songs. The set features guest contributions from Ivan Lins, Roberto Menescal, Ricardo Silveira, and others – but Wanda's clearly the star of the show here, on titles that include "Fora De Hora", "Fotografia", "Cala Meu Amor", "Entardecendo", "The Nearness Of You", "Uma Simples Cancao", and "Samba Pequeno".

✨✧ Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... LP
Quest/Warner, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last really all-star sets from Quincy Jones – and a record that reprises the format of some of his big records of the 70s – like Mellow Madness or Body Heat – in a way that has Quincy surrounding himself with top-shelf artists of all sorts, from jazz soloists, to hip hoppers, to R&B vocalists. Kool Moe Dee & Big Daddy Kane rap on a version of "Birdland" that also has solos from Miles, Diz, and James Moody; Take 6 sing on a mellow version of Ivan Lins' "Setembro (Brazilian Wedding Song)", Bobby McFerrin sings goofily on "Wee B Dooinit", Siedah Garrett and Al B Sure sing on "The Secret Garden", and a whole choir joins in on "Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has an index label on one corner.)

✨✧ Arthur VerocaiEncore ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous new work from Arthur Verocai – the Brazilian legend who's best remembered for his sublime self-titled album from the 70s, but who sounds equally great on this contemporary release! The record has a really classic feel overall – warm, soulful, and filled with plenty of jazzy touches – the best of which are brought to the record by Azymuth, who help Verocai out on about half the album's tracks! But even without their assistance, the whole thing's still plenty darn great – a brilliant batch of original tunes that have a bubbling, mellow sort of majesty – a bit like Marcos Valle or Edu Lobo's best music of the early 70s, and with a similar sort of sophistication as well. Verocai plays acoustic and electric guitar, and vocals are by a variety of guest singers who really get the spirit of the album nicely (including Ivan Lins on one track.) Titles include "Tupa Tupi", "Sucuri", "Abertura", "Bis", "Amor Na Contra Mao", "Caminho Da Roca", "Tudo De Bom", and "Dona Das Meninas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Avenue, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual slice of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers – proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks feature Shavers in a sextet with Hank D'Amico, Bennie Morton, Ken Kersey, Aaron Bell and Panama Francis, and some narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins provides some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo. The set list includes "Dark Eyes", "Dawn On The Desert", "Story Of The Jazz Trumpet", and "Moten Swing" – all done in pretty cool, swinging versions. Side 2 of the LP features Shavers leading another sextet in front of the John Kirby Orchestra with vocalist Maxine Sullivan alongside too, and all of which include Buster Bailey on clarinet, Russell Procope on alto, and Billy Kyle on piano – on tunes that include "Windy", "Rose Room", "If I Had A Ribbon Row", "Flow Gently Sweet Rhythm", and "Molly Malone".

Weldon IrvineSpirit Man ... LP
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Massively funky work from the mighty Weldon Irvine – sublimely cosmic and filled with soul throughout! The vibe here is a bit more focused than on some of Weldon's earlier albums – a moody blend of electric keys, heavy percussion, and some slight bits of jazzy solo work by trumpeters Charles Sullivan and Everett Blood Hollins, and saxophonist Sonny Fortune – both players who really help the album find some soulful structure! The album's all-instrumental, and has Weldon really taking off on the keyboards – not just using them for main solos, but also dropping in cool noisy bits and analogue effects that really sound great – almost out-Herbieing Herbie Hancock for the record, and turning in some of his biggest classics on wax! Titles include the massive sample cut "We Gettin' Down", plus "Jungle Juice", "Blast Off", "Softly", "Power & The Glory", "Yasmin", and "Pogo Stick". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice new reissue from Nature Sounds – with updated artwork, created using rare photos from the original album cover shoot!)
