Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... On June 17, 2015
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $28.99
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

VariousBrazilian Beats Vol 1 ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 1999. Used ... $8.99
Funky funky Brazil! Mr. Bongo have done it again, and unleashed a killer set of rare funky Brazilian tracks – one that includes some of the most in-demand sample tracks from the old days, plus a few new remixes of other titles. Some of the cuts on the set used to be out on vinyl reissues back in the early 90s, but nearly all of them are hard to find now – and the selection of material is fantastic! The whole thing comes in a great package, with a total of 18 cuts in all. Titles include "Nebulosa" by Tenorio Jr, "Cidade Vazia" by Milton Banana, "Celebration Suite" by Airto, "Bob" by Otto, "Carolina Carol Bela" by Jorge Ben & Toquinho, "Eu Sou Mais Eu" by Ana Mazzotti, "Barumba" by Dom Salvador, "Deus Me Faca Funky" by Skowa & Mafia, "Swinga Samambay" by Trio Mocoto, "Hot Pants Road" by Boogaloo Combo, "Ye Mele" by Luiz Carlos Vinhas, and "Brazilian Beat (dope mix)" by Masters At Work!

Joao DonatoBossa Muito Moderna ... CD
Polygram (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
Early work from the great Joao Donato – a classic set of piano trio sides, featuring a group with Milton Banana on drums, and some extra percussion on a number of tracks! The style here is more stripped down than on a lot of Joao's other albums – spare bossa tunes, nicely grooving with a warm and jazzy feel. Joao's work on the keys is as lovely as always – lyrical chords with a mellow groove, working through a host of tunes that includes some strong original compositions! Tracks include "Rio", "Silk Stop", "Outra Vez", "Noa..Noa", "Sambolero", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Sambongo", and "Indo Perdido". CD

✨✧ VariousBeginners Guide To Bossa Nova (3CD set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just an introduction – and instead, an amazing collection of bossa nova gems – 48 tracks pulled from the vaults of the legendary EMI/Odeon label – home to some of the best bossa work ever recorded in Brazil! The package is a treasure through and through – filled with key classics, overlooked gems, and the kind of weird and wonderful bossa numbers that never made it here to the US – but which have made digging for Brazilian records a favorite pastime of ours for decades. Most tracks here are from the 60s, and the set runs from straight bossa numbers to others that use bossa as a starting point, then take off into great new territory. Titles include "Ao Amigo Tom" by Doris Monteiro, "A Resposta" by Marcos Valle, "Voce" by Milton Banana Trio, "Deixa Eu Dizer" by Claudia, "A Ra" by Joao Donato, "Eh Mundo Bom Tai" by Johnny Alf, "Agua De Beber" by Neco, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor" by Bossa Tres, "Fotografia" by Sylvia Telles, "Por Causa De Voce" by Marisa, "Outra Vez" by Elizeth Cardoso, "Inutil Paisagem" by Dick Farney, "Ho Ba La La" by Norma Benguell, "Estamos Ai" by Leny Andrade, "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce" by Eumir Deodato, and "Misturada" by Quarteto Novo.
