Ivan LinsSomos Todos Iguais Nesta Noite/A Noite ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1977/1979. Used ... $28.99
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 ... 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 LinsA Noite ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful album from Ivan Lins – filled with life, soul, and a free sense of spirit that reminds us of some of Milton Nascimento's best work from the same period! Ivan's vocals are set amidst some heavenly arrangements by Gilson Peranzzetta – done with just the right amount of jazz in the mix, and a nice blend of instrumentation that often includes electric piano and a bit of strings. Lins is at the height of his powers here, both vocally and in terms of his songwriting – and the album ranks as one of his best from the time. Titles include "A Voz Do Povo", "Formigueiro", "Antes Que Seja Tarde", and "Noites Sertanejas". CD

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.

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

✨✧ 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. Near Mint- (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

✨✧ Weldon IrvineWeldon Irvine – The RCA Years (Cosmic Vortex/Sinbad/Spirit Man) (3CD set) ... CD
RCA/Get On Down, 1974/1975/1976. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Massive music from the legendary Weldon Irvine – three albums in a single set! Cosmic Vortex is a genius bit of work from the legendary Irvine – a mightily righteous effort that more than lives up to its heady title and cover! Keyboards are very much at the forefront of his sound – played with that heavily vamping left hand that makes his work so funky – but there's also a focus on lyrics here too – sung by Weldon with support form singers Ojuleba & Nalo, in a way that creates a righteous "many voiced" mode on the lyrical tracks! Titles include excellent track "Walk That Walk, Talk that Talk", plus other great ones like "Love Your Brother", "Let Yourself Be Free", "Quiet", "I'll Name It Tomorrow", and "Love Jones". Sinbad features the debut of the legendary Don Blackman! Irvine's still very much in charge of the session, but Blackman's emerging here with the strength that would show up on his later soul sessions – singing lead vocals on some of the best cuts on the record, and also playing acoustic piano next to Weldon's bank of electric keys. Tunes are nicely varied throughout – returning to the exploratory nature of some of Irvine's earlier records – and there's even some great mellower numbers that are some of our favorite tracks on the set – including the sublime stepper "I Love You", the gently spacey "Music Is The Key", and a sweet instrumental cover of "What's Going On". Other tracks include "Sinbad", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Do Something For Yourself", and "Here's Where I Came In". Spirit Man is 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!

✨✧ Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
