Ivan LinsAwa Yio ... CD
Reprise, 1991. Used ... $6.99
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 LinsJuntos ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Ivan LinsMaos ... LP
Polygram (Brazil), 1987. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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

Ivan LinsNos Dias De Hoje ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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 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

✨✧ Nana CaymmiNana Caymmi (1975) ... LP
CID (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A mellow classic from Nana Caymmi – recorded in that laidback, jazzy style that was fast becoming the trademark sound of the younger Caymmi generation! The approach is a really wonderful – as Nana's dark vocals drift around easily – amidst a set of warm arrangements graced by light instrumental touches from players that include Tenorio Jr., Toninho Horta, Nelson Angelo, and Ivan Lins. At some level, the record's almost a blueprint for so many albums in later years to come – that space between jazz and more baroque pop that Nana's always filled so nicely! Titles include "Beuo Partido", "So Louco", "Ponta De Areia", "Saudade", "Tens", and "Medo De Amar". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy ChildsSkim Coat ... CD
Metropolitan, 1999. Used ... $6.99
Warm soulful trio material from pianist Billy Childs – featuring some great rhythm backing by Carl Allen on drums and the great Buster Williams on bass. The whole thing's nothing fancy – but the set's got some great little numbers, including three gems by Williams ("Deceptacon", "Deja", and "Skim Coat") which really let Childs open up. Also features a version of Ivan Lins' "Love Dance", and Child's own "Heroes". CD

Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... LP
Quest/Warner, 1989. Very Good ... $7.99
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".

Gilson PeranzzettaComo Vinho 70 Anos ... CD
Canal (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
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 ... $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".

Arthur VerocaiEncore ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

✨✧ Joao BoscoCaca a Raposa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Paul MauriatC'Est La Vie/Brasil Exclusivamente Vol 2 ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Weldon IrvineSpirit Man ... LP
RCA, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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 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
