Milton Banana TrioMilton Banana Trio (1965) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1965. Used ... $11.99
Sublime bossa jazz from one of the greatest combos on the Brazilian scene of the 60s – the crackling trio led by drummer Milton Banana, a really tremendous player no matter what the setting! The album bristles with energy from the very first note – virtually a blueprint for the sound of bossa piano in the 60s, with some great acoustic work here from Walter Wanderley on piano, and basslines that have a quick-spirited sense of timing to match Milton's drums. Tracks are all short and very tight, with a great sense of jazz – leaping along the grooves with titles that include "Samblues", "Noa Noa", "Primavera", "Samba De Verao", "Primitivo", and "Sambou, Sambou".

Milton BananaAo Meu Amigo Tom – Samba E Isso Vol 4 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet later work from bossa jazz drummer Milton Banana – a set of tunes delivered as a tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, but done very much in the spirit of Banana's best 70s work! The style here is a bit more expansive than Milton's harder-edged sets of the 60s – core trio work expanded with some light strings and woodwinds, in ways that would really please Jobim – who seems to be enjoying himself nicely, having a drink with Milton on the front cover! Many numbers are done in the "pot-pourri" style that Banana used heavily at the time – mixing a few key themes into instrumental medleys – and titles include "Chega De Suadade", "Intuil Paisagem", "Amor Em Paz", "Aquas De Marco", "So Em Teus Bracos", "Este Seu Olhar", "Insensatez", "So Danco Samba", "Dindi", "Demais", and "A Felicidade".

P TrioEmbalo ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful bit of lost bossa jazz from 60s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by the P Trio, an enigmatic group recording in Belo Horizonte – hardly the same center of bossa nova as the beaches in Rio! The session's got a spare and lively feel – similar to work at the time by the Zimbo Trio or the Milton Banana Trio – heavily rhythmic piano in the lead, but played with some more traditional jazz inflections from time to time, and nicely skipping and light on the more uptempo numbers – and nice and moody on some of the mellower moments. The whole thing's great – as much a bossa trio gem as albums by much bigger groups – arrangements are by Aecio Flavio, and titles include "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Roda", "Rita", "Carinhoso", "Meu Refrao", and "Mascarada".

✨✧ Samba TrioSamba Pra Frente ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the more obscure bossa jazz sets of the 60s – played by the lively little Samba Trio, a group who definitely live up to their name! Don't mix these guys up with the early 80s combo from Europe – as this group plays with a hard-edge groove that's heavy on romping piano lines and snapping snare – in a mode that's like more famous 60s recordings from Brazilian groups like Milton Banana Trio or Tamba Trio! And like the latter, they also harmonize a bit with their instrumentation – not on every track, but at key moments that really give the record a wonderfully moody sound. Plus, their sense of color and tone is wonderful – extremely evocative, doing a heck of a lot with just a little – in the true bossa spirit! Titles include "Arrasto", "Nana", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Canto De Ossanha", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Noa Noa", and "Reza". CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the bossa flavor promised in the title – kind of a post-bossa version of the bossa jazz trio style of the 60s – a bit like the records that Tamba Trio and Milton Banana were cutting in the 70s, but maybe even better overall! The percussionists are all great – the album features five of them, all Brazilian – and they work alongside bassist Toni Botero and drummer Elis Siabo. Titles include "Samba Medley", "Mood Island", "UFO", "Midnight Sun Never Set", and "Diane". CD

Some of the rarest work from one of the coolest labels of all time – the legendary Saravah Records, home to a groundbreaking array of jazz, African, folk, blues, and French pop material! The company was started back in the 60s by singer Pierre Barouh – with monies made from his work on Un Homme Et Une Femme – and although the label never produced many records, it's continued a 40 year legacy of creative releases that still push the boundaries of modern music! We faithfully carry some of the classics in the Saravah catalog, and this unusual set is a great complement to its more famous titles – as it features singles, side projects, and rare live recordings that further expand our understanding of the Saravah genius – all presented in one beautiful genre-jumping package of work!

✨✧ VariousAmazing Bossa Nova – Journey To Rio De Janeiro ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The title certainly gets things right – as the 2CD collection is filled with amazing bossa nova tunes – mostly from the classic 60s years of the genre, with a few sweet bits from later years too! The set's got 36 tracks split into two different "themed" discs – one titled On The Beach, with tunes that are perfect for a sunny summer afternoon in the sand – the other titled On The Hill, showing some of the more sophisticated currents of the bossa world as it began to mature! A good deal of the work is from the Universal catalog – on labels that include Verve, Philips, and Elenco – and the set also brings in a few choice bits from other sources too – even a few original mono mixes from the 60s. Titles include "Moca Flor" by Tamba Trio, "Agua De Beber" by Astrud Gilberto, "Espere Um Pouco" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Estamos Ai" by Leny Adrade, "We & The Sea" by Tamba 4, "Coisas Do Brasil" by Leila Pinheiro, "Desafinado" by Laurindo Almeida, "Aguas De Marco" by Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Coracao Vagabundo" by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa, "Batucada" by Marcos Valle, "Quiet Nights" by Wanda De Sah, "Garota De Minha Cidade" by Johnny Alf, "Sonho De Um Carnaval" by Milton Banana Trio, "Retrato Em Branco E Preto" by Nara Leao, "Carta Ao Tom 74" by Vinicius De Moraes & Toquinho, "Reza" by Edu Lobo, and "Lamento Do Morro" by Doris Monteiro.
