✨✧ P TrioEmbalo ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousBrazil Blue ... CD
EMI/Hemisphere, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not to be confused with the Blue Brazil compilation on Blue Note – although quite similar to it – this is a similar batch of tracks that features lost Brazilian gems pulled from the catalog of the EMI/Odeon label, home to some of Brazil's best music of the 60's and 70's. The CD's got 18 cuts in all, with a track selection that's surprisingly good for an American compilation. Titles include "Samba De Uma Nota So/Surfboard" by Joyce, "Comecar De Novo" by Ivan Lins, "O Cantador" by Victor Assis Brasil, "Fica Mal Com Deus" by Quarteto Novo, "Choro De Mae" by Wagner Tiso, "Milagre Dos Peixes" by Milton Nascimento, "Emotiva No 1" by Helio Delmiro, "Cidade Vazia" by Milton Banana Trio, and "Bate-Papo" by Os Chores & Radames Gnattali.

Milton BananaAo Meu Amigo Tom – Samba E Isso Vol 4 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Milton BananaMilton Banana (1973) ... LP
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Milton's bossa fomat is still going strong at this point – and the jazzy trio is nicely augmented by some other instrumentation that include cuica, bandolim, and larger orchestral backings on a few tracks. The whole thing's packaged in a cover that has a very cool abstract image of a drum kit – and the titles include a version of Antonio Carlos e Jocafi's "Minhas Razoes", plus "Cicatrizes", "Deixa Teu Mal", "Se O Caso E Chorar", "Do Lado Direito Da Rua Direita", "Verso Novo", and "Lendas Do Abete". Great piano, produced with that cool compressed sound that was being used heavily at the time! LP, Vinyl record album
(Top and bottom cover seams have masking tape – but vinyl is very nice!)

VariousLa Cave Saravah Vol 1 – Une Compilation D'Oeuvres Rares Et Inedites (1966 to 1980) Par Love Poulbot ... CD
Saravah (France), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
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! Titles include "For All We Know" by Marva Broome & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, "Ooh La La" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Un Homme Qui Me Plait" by Francis Lai, "La Nuit De Mon Amour" by Pierre Barouh with Baden Powell & Milton Banana, "Ntce Ngani" by Pierre Akendengue, "Le Moral Necessaire" by Afred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, "Killy" by Nicole Croisille, "Le Temps" by Michel Roques, "Berimbau" by Trio Camera, "Pause Cafe" by Jean-Charles Capon & Pierre Favre, and "Colompin Bombin" by Cohelmec Ensemble.

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (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
