Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite/A Noite ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1977/1979. Used ... $24.99
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 LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Around June 10, 2015
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 ... Around June 10, 2015
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 ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Around May 20, 2015
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 ... Temporarily 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".

VariousProxima Atracao – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Philips (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Around May 20, 2015
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.

✨✧ Emilio SantiagoEmilio Santiago ... CD
CID/Whatmusic (UK), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE Brazilian funk classics of the 70s – the debut album of soulful singer Emilio Santiago! The sound is a wonderful blend of samba, soul, and some of the electric jazzy riffing that was big in Brazil at the time, and which showed up in the styles of groups like Banda Black Rio or Unaio Black – and Santiago's vocals are tremendous, equally at home with a hip grooving soul tune as they are with some of the album's mellower, jazzier tracks. Guest artists on the set include Brazilian jazz luminaries Joao Donato, Victor Assis Brasil, Ivan Lins, and Aecio Flavio – and the album includes the funky breaking classic "Bananeira", an amazing version of a song written by Donato and Gilberto Gil, served up by Santiago in a version that's easily the best ever! Other tracks include a great version of Jorge Ben's "Brother", plus "Quero Alegria", "Depois", "Doa A Quem Doer", and "La Mulata", a Latin groover by Marcos Valle! CD

✨✧ Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... LP
Quest/Warner, 1989. Used ... 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

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of Helio Delmiro, Ivan Lins, Toninho Horta, Danilo Caymmi, and Joao Bosco – each of whom play a bit of guitar on the record, the last of whom also sings a bit of guest vocals too! Luiz Eca handled the arrangements, all with that subtle sense of sophistication that we've always loved in the group – even more mature here than in the 60s, and with a sound that's totally great. Titles include "3 Horas Da Manha", "Visgo De Jaca", "Beira Mar", "Chorinho No 1", "Jogo Da Vida", "Sanguessuga", and "Beijo Partido". CD

Weldon IrvineSpirit Man ... LP
RCA, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Ira SullivanStrings Attached ... LP
PA USA, 1985. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A completely different album than most of Ira Sullivan's other records – warm, soulful, and filled with a sense of spiritual yearning that's really great! The format here has Ira blowing trumpet and flute with a "with strings" group that features 4 violins alongside the rhythm section, plus some especially wonderful work on soprano and tenor sax from John Alexander. And while you might expect the strings to bring out a sleepy side of the record, they really don't – and instead glide along on a pillow of air – supporting the tunes in a really nice way so that Ira's solos float right over the top, and Alexander's soar nicely with a searing edge. There's almost a hip 70s soul jazz feel to the record, especially on the track "The Kingdom Within You", which features vocals from Debbie Spring. Other tracks include "Our Love & Spirit", "Looking Glass Falls", "Late Nights", and "Wonderful Sound". LP, Vinyl record album
