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 LinsQuem Sou Eu? ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Ivan Lins' first albums – and a landmark set of MPB! The record shows a lot of strands of influence from the Milton Nascimento, Lo Borges, and Minhas Geraes camp – and it shares much of the same sense of jazzy scoring with the work of those artists. But most important is Lins' ability to write a song – a talent that was present strongly even at this early stage, and which added an incredible amount of sophistication to Brazilian popular music. His voice is fantastic, too – with a raspy edge that gives it a great deal of honesty, and which makes you really feel the lyrics, even if you don't understand his language. Titles include "Voce Amiga", "SQDQ", "Quarto Escuro", "Ratos Baratos e Cupins", "Pra Voce Ver", and "Sai De Baixo". CD

Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite/A Noite ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1977/1979. Used ... $14.99
Two 70s classics by Ivan Lins – back to back on one CD! Somos Todos is very much in Lins' classic style of the 70s, and performed with some great accompaniment by keyboardist Gilson Peranzzetta! The record's got a warm intimate feel that works great with Lins' heartfelt compositions – and it's music like this that really brought him to the attention of audiences outside of Brazil at the time. Titles include "Quadras de Roda", "Dinorah, Dinorah", "Choro Das Aquas", and the great "Aparecida". A Noite is album of jazzy arrangements by Gilson Peranzzetta, who again plays electric keyboard on the set. Lins is at the height of his powers here, both vocally and in terms of his songwriting – and the album is very nicely paired here with the other on this CD! Titles include "A Voz Do Povo", "Formigueiro", "Antes Que Seja Tarde", and "Noites Sertanejas". CD

✨✧ Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of record to get you started with his music, as it's one of the best that he ever recorded! The set's got all the best elements of Lins at his 70s stretch of greatness – wonderful songwriting, honest presentation of the lyrics, and this sublime mix of jazz and more lofty backings – at a level that places him in the space with Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges! Like both of those artists, the music here is earnest, but never overdone – balanced with a sense that no American artist could ever hope to touch – with this universal appeal that goes way beyond the boundaries of language. Gilson Peranzzetta handled the backings, and plays keyboards on the set – and titles include "Quadras de Roda", "Dinorah, Dinorah", "Choro Das Aquas", and the great "Aparecida". CD

✨✧ Ivan LinsAmerica Brasil Vol 1 ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest, most positive albums that Ivan Lins has recorded in years – a set that almost has the feel of some of his biggest albums from the 80s, a time when Lins was riding high on a big wave of international acclaim! The production is a bit more top-shelf than other recent efforts, but that's a great thing – as it really helps to bring out the strengths in Lins' songwriting – which hasn't dimmed at all over the years. There's plenty of catchy tunes on the set – the kind of classic work from Lins that you can totally dig, even without knowing the language – and titles include "Cantor Da Noite", "Cantoria", "Luxo Do Lixo", "America Brasil", "Agua Doce", and "Do Oiapoque Ao Chui".

Jiggs WhighamBrazilian Portrait ... LP
DRS Band (Germany), 1986. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A bit more restrained than earlier albums by trombonist Jiggs Whigham – but a pretty nice batch of Brazilian tunes, played with a mellow and floating edge that almost recalls the work of Claus Ogerman in the 60s! Whigham's in the lead on trombone solos, and he's playing in a set of larger arrangements that have strings and other instruments banking behind his horn in a dreamy way. Features versions of "April Child" by Moacir Santos, "Aparecida" by Ivan Lins, "Ve" by Antonio Adolfo, "De Onde Vens" by Dori Caymmi, and "Lugar Comum" by Joao Donato. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousProxima Atracao – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Philips (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Sublime work from the glory days of the Brazilian TV soundtrack! Like other gems from the time, this set's a mixture of tracks by popular Brazilian singers and instrumentalists – produced with a breezy and easy approach in soap operas of the time. The work's a striking counterpart to that of the Tropicalia generation – but equally revolutionary in our eyes, and similar to work by Marcos Valle or Antonio Adolfo & Brazuca. The set features arrangements by Rogerio Duprat, Roberto Menescal, and others – and titles include "Cica Ceclia" by Erasmo Carlos, "A Proxima Atracoa" by Ivan Lins, "Madalena" by Elis Regina, "Quem Vem De La" by MPB4, "Atmosfera" by Briamonte Orchestra, "Regina" by Ronnie Von, "Panorama, Segundo Rodrigo" by Marcus Pitter, and "Sol Nascent" by Conjunto Roberto Menescal.

Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
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, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 Hcock 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
