Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
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

✨✧ Milton Banana TrioTipo Exportacao – Samba E Isso Vol 2 ... LP
RCA (Brazil), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful 70s session from one of Brazil's greatest drummers! Milton Banana is a maestro on the drum kit – with a skill that was forged in the heat (or cool!) of the bossa era, and which stayed plenty tight into the 70s, when he began adding a bit more variation to his standard piano trio format. This set features Banana working with slight touches of other instrumentation – including electric piano, cuica, and some cool jazzy vocals on occasional tracks – and the groove of the set is a nice meeting of 70s electric jazz and 60s bossa pulse, still pretty darn fresh today! Titles include "Propagas", "Oi Compadre", "Olho Por Olho", "Coisa Da Antiga", "Ilha De Mare", "Tigresa", "Eu Sou Bicho Homem", and "Saco De Feijao". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joao DonatoBossa Muito Moderna ... CD
Polygram (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A perfect summation of the dearly Joao Donato at his best – a record that's awash in amazing tones, colors, and phrasing – and one that really demonstrates the subtle genius that Donato brought to his work! The album's only a trio outing – with Milton Banana on drums – but there's an approach to the piano that's as complex as some larger arrangements – especially in the way that Joao effortlessly shuffles sonic elements with the sophistication you'd guess from the "modern" in the title – yet still manages to groove as you'd expect from the "bossa" as well! The approach is quite jazzy, but something else as well – and titles include "Rio", "Silk Stop", "Outra Vez", "Noa..Noa", "Sambolero", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Sambongo", and "Indo Perdido". CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
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

✨✧ VariousBossa Nova – Musique Tapestry ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully packaged set of classic bossa nova material from the EMI/Odeon catalog in Brazil! The liner notes are all in Japanese, so it's difficult to get the total idea of what this set's concept is – but the cover and packaging have this beautiful cloth-like image, which inspires the tapestry in the title, we think! Who cares, though – because the music's great, and the set's filled with nice bossa material like "Onde Anda O Meu Amor" by Bossa Tres, "Mentiras" by Joao Donato, "Conversa De Botequim" by Doris Monteiro, "Sweet Happy Life" by Wanda De Sah, "Samba Do Aviao" by Milton Banana Trio, "Demais" by Dick Farney, "A Felicidade" by Silvia Telles, "Batucada Sergiu" by Marcos Valle, and "Fim De Semana Em Guaruja" by Os Tres Brasileiros. 17 cuts in all!

✨✧ Jorge Autuori TrioJorge Auturori Trio ... CD
Rozenblit/Whatmusic (UK), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great set by a crack drummer! Jorge Autuori's got a great approach to the kit – tight and crackling, perfect for the bossa-based instrumentals on the set. He plays a lot like drummer Milton Banana, who was a contemporary of his in Brazil – and he utilizes the same piano/bass/drums lineup as Banana's famous trio. Tracks on the set are a mix of Brazilian tunes, and the album's got a lively bossa-grooving feel all the way through – with plenty of great drums! Titles include "Samba Com Molho", "O Caderninho", "Triste Madrugada", "Tem Mais Samba", "Ilusao Demais", "Tema De Nos Tres", and "Palmas No Portao". CD
