✨✧ Ivan LinsChama Acesa ... CD
RCA/Kuarup (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily 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 LinsModo Livre ... CD
RCA/Kuarup (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime early work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of album that made him one of the global breakout talents from Brazil in the 70s – and a record that you can still pick up all these many years later, and find the same sort of genius! Arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – who gives the whole thing a quality that's like his own famous work, but even better – given the strength of Lins' songwriting and amazing vocal presentation – a level that, like Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, seems to grab us in ways that go beyond the language of the lyrics – this sort of universal soul that slides right down into the warmly jazzy arrangements! Lins plays organ, guitar, and electric piano – and the set features more organ from Wagner Tiso, amidst a wonderful set of larger arrangements. Beautiful all the way through –a nd titles include "Nao Tem Perdao", "Abre Alas", "Deixa Eu Dizer", "Desejo", "Rei Do Carnaval", "Tens", "General Da Banda", and "Avarandado". CD

✨✧ Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... 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".

Celso Fonseca & Ronaldo BastosJuventude – Slow Motion Bossa Nova ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 2001. New Copy ... $13.99
Slow Motion Bossa Nova certainly fits this one – a beautiful album of lush jazzy arrangements, done in the 60s style of artists like Roberto Menescal or Lalo Schifrin, but with added touches of soulful vocals by Celso Fonseca. The assemblage of musicians on the record is great – and players feature old and young bossa talents that include Joao Donato, Robertinho Silva, Marcio Montarroyos, Luiz Alves, Daniel Jobim, and Jaques Morelenbaum. The album's far more than a 60s bossa reprise – as it's filled with original tunes that sparkle with the gentle easiness of some of Ivan Lins' best work of years past. Titles include "Satelite Bar", "Samba E Tudo", "A Voz Do Coracao", "Dylan Em Madrid", "Feito Pra Voce", "Miles Ahead Of Time", and "O Sorriso De Angkor". CD

✨✧ Emilio SantiagoEmilio Santiago ... CD
CID/Whatmusic (UK), 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Romero LubamboRio De Janeiro Underground ... CD
441, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one's hardly got the rough sound of the Rio underground, but it is a very nice batch of tracks from guitarist Romero Lubambo – recorded in a smooth jazzy fusion style! The set's got the easily grooving feel of other work on the Aosis label – mellow guitar and keyboard, set in spare arrangements that recall production modes of earlier times. The record features lots of strong guest work – including vocals by Ivan Lins, keyboards by Cesar Camargo Mariano, and flute by Herbie Mann – and titles include "Rio De Janeiro Underground", "She Walks This Earth", "Easy Going", "Sweeping The Chimney", "Avenida Central", "Nira", and "Estrela Guia".

✨✧ VariousProxima Atracao – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Philips (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

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

Michel LegrandMichel Legrand Chante – Les Moulins De Mon Coeur ... LP
Philips (France), Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
A wonderful collection of vocal work from the great Michel Legrand – an artist we love as much as a singer as we do a composer and arranger! The set fetaures backings directed by Legrand himself, plus Vladimir Cosma, Christian Chevallier, and Ivan Jullien – and the set features a total of 24 great tracks from the 60s! LP, Vinyl record album
