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 LinsMaos ... LP
Polygram (Brazil), 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Ivan Lins & Geraldo FlachMuito Bom Tocar Juntos ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... 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 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".

✨✧ Ivan LinsAwa Yio ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record cut at a time when Brazilian singer Ivan Lins was enjoying a great wave of international fame – a moment that resulted in music that almost had him reaching out as a majestic singer, able to inspire the whole world at once, rather than just the mainstream audiences back home in Brazil! The set's got this quality that's very positive and uplifting – almost as if Lins is borrowing a bit from the production and arrangements that Milton Nascimento was using, but giving it a more personal twist with his excellent songwriting. And the whole thing's tight, but never slick – that careful balance that Brazilian artists could always reach, at a time when American singers would always sound too clunkily commercial. Ivan's voice is wonderful throughout – able to communicate volumes, even if you can't understand his language – and titles include "Pontas Cardeias", "Leva E Traz", "Clareou", "Awa Yio", and "Cru Cre Corroro".

✨✧ Ivan LinsChama Acesa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great album from one of Ivan Lins' best periods – a great shift in his music, with a sound that's made the album one of his all-time classics! The set has him adapting more of a jazzy sound than on earlier records – dropping some of the baroque arrangements for a sound that's leaner, meaner, and stripped down in a way that really gets the spirit of his great compositions across to the listener. The small backing combo features Gilson Peranzzetta, who plays some excellent electric piano, which gives the album a moody groove that places it somewhere between the early 70s work of Joao Donato and Milton Nascimento. Titles include "Lenda Do Carmo", "Sorriso Da Magoa", "Palhacos E Reis", "Corpos", "Demonio De Guarda", and "Nao Ha Porque". CD

✨✧ Ivan LinsNos Dias De Hoje ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record features a great set of tracks written in collaboration with Vitor Martins, and with backing by Grupo Modo Livre, arranged by Gilson Peranzzetta. If you've ever wondered why people talk about Lins' genius as a songwriter – check out this album, and you'll see what they mean! Titles include "Cantoria", "Quaresma", "Temporal", "Aos Nossos Filhos", and "A Visita". CD

Joao BoscoCaca a Raposa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Maybe one of the best-remembered albums from the legendary 70s run of Joao Bosco – a set that manages to bring together jazzy instrumentation, samba rhythms, folksy elements, and a whole new level of songwriting – all in a blend that beautifully announces Bosco's genius to the world! There's a level of expression here that rivals Caetano Veloso or Ivan Lins – and like those giants of Brazilian music, the sound here is almost Bosco's genre unto itself – a wonderfully strong expression of new ideas, done in close collaboration with songwriter Aldir Blanc. Cesar Camargo Mariano handles arrangements and keyboards – which makes for more than a few jazzy and groovy moments – especially on the cuts "Nessa Data" and "Casa De Marimbondo", plus the classic "Kid Cavaquinho". Other titles include "O Mestre Sala Dos Mares", "Escadas Da Penha", "Jardins Da Infancia", and "Violeta De Belfort Roxo". CD

Michael DeaseGrace ... CD
JLP, 2010. Used ... $2.99
A diverse set of jazz tunes, covered affectionately, strongly, and...well, gracefully by Michael Dease – the excellent jazz trombone player's first set as a leader! Dease works very, very well here in a number of styles by variety of great ones – clasics by McCoy Tyner, Miles Davis and John Coltrane, breezy Brazilian numbers penned by Ivan Lins and Milton Nasciemento and more. The guests include Roy Hargrove, Claudio Roditi, Mark Whitfied and Eric Alexander. Includes Jobim's "Discussao", McCoy Tyner's "Blues On The Corner", Coltrane's "26-2", Ivan Lins's "Love Dance", Herbie Hancock's "Toys", "Salt Song" by Nascimento & Lubambo and more. CD

✨✧ Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... LP
Quest/Warner, 1989. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Paul MauriatC'Est La Vie/Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2 ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Gilson PeranzzettaComo Vinho 70 Anos ... CD
Canal (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautiful tribute to the career of Brazilian pianist Gilson Peranzzetta – a musician who's been adding his talents to records of some of the greats of that scene from the 70s onwards – including recordings by Ivan Lins, Simone, and Gal Costa! Peranzzatta's both a great musical accompanist for singers, and a hell of a musician on his own – and both sides of those talents are showcased here – in a live set that has Gilson playing a grand piano with a wonderfully rich sound – and leading a larger group as the set moves on, with space enough for guest appearances by Leny Andrade, Mauro Senise, Valerie Lobao, and the Quarteto Radames Gnattali. Most tunes are original compositions by Gilson – showcasing his strengths as a composer, too – and titles include "Como Vinho", "Pro Rada", "Cantos Da Vida", "Sorriso De Luz", "Vivencia", "Paisagem Brasileira", "Dois Na Rede", and "Braz De Pina Meu Amor".

Wanda SaCa Entre Nos ... CD
Fina Flor (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Arthur VerocaiEncore ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $16.99
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

✨✧ AzymuthSpectrum ... LP
Milestone, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Proof that Azymuth were one of the few groups who could keep things real at a time when most of their fusion contemporaries were sounding cloying and commercial! The album's got a well-rounded sound that really shows the group's roots in the 70s, and their wonderful evolution over the years – that keyboard-heavy sound that's always warm and soulful, and never too tinny or beat-heavy. Jose Roberto Bertrami's keys come across with a 70s warmth that most groups were lacking by this time – and the backing from Alex Maheiros on bass and Ivan Conti is always very subtle, and simple too – swirled up alongside the keyboards, and mixed in with a few occasional bits of guest instrumentation – including trumpet from Marcio Montarroyos on one track, and flugelhorn from Paulinho Olivera on a few more. Titles include versions of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", Jobim's "Song Of The Jet", and Ivan Lins' "The Island", plus the cuts "Universal Prisoner", "Candomble", and "Areis".

✨✧ SimonePedacos ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Darkly brilliant work from Simone – a real standout singer in late 70s MPB, working here with a sound that draws heavily from the legacy of the post-Tropicalia scene! Simone's music has a really moody feel overall – arranged by Gilson Peranzzetta and Nelson Ayres with some gently jazzy moments, and a relatively spare feel overall – so that Simone's deep-toned vocals really dominate the set. The approach is a bit like that of Gal Costa at the time, but a bit more haunting overall – and compositions are by Ivan Lins, Chico Buarque and Milton Nascimento – and include "Outra Vez", "Pedaco De Mim", "Comecar De Novo", "Saindo De Mim", "Cordilheira", "Povo Da Raca Brasil", and "Itamarandiba".

✨✧ Fabrizio Bosso3 Essential Albums (Sol/You've Changed/Purple) (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Italy), 2007/2008/2013. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A trio of albums from this great trumpeter – packaged together in a nicely-priced set! Sol is a beautiful session from Italian trumpeter Fabrizo Bosso and saxophonist Javier Girotto – one that's filled with all the Latin Moods promised in the title! The set steps nicely off some of Bosso's other recent work for Blue Note – with a sound that's evocative, but also pretty lively too – especially given the small combo setting for the date! Bosso's trumpet and flugelhorn come into great play with Girotto's soprano and baritone sax lines – dancing beautifully over some rhythmic backings shaded in with keyboards, piano, and electric bass. The large booklet features some poetic prose that really set the scene for each tune – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most numbers are instrumental. Titles include "Volver", "Matias", "Pescao Blanco", "Wide Green Eyes", "Ochenta", "El Cacerolazo", "African Friends", and "Penny". You've Changed is a set that has the leader's warmly-crafted solos stepping out over some larger string arrangements from Paolo Silvestri! The music is great – fresher than you might expect, and not the usual batch of overplayed standards – given that Bosso mixes in music by folks like Ivan Lins, Marcos Valle, and Ennio Morricone – as well as some tunes of his own. The set features guest vocals from Dianne Reeves on one track, and soprano sax from Stefano Di Battista on two others – and titles include "Summer Samba", "Rio De Majo", "Estatew", "Joyful Day", "Nuovo Cinema Paradiso", and "Senza Fine". Purple is a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Avenue, Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
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)... 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
