✨✧ Vince GuaraldiCast Your Fate To The Wind – Jazz Impressions Of Black Orpheus ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Very Good ... $7.99
A beautiful record of light, lyrical piano jazz – and one of the best-selling jazz albums ever on Fantasy Records! Vince Guaraldi started the set as a tribute to the film Black Orpheus – and some of the album features his nice renditions of Jobim/Bonfa tunes like "Manha De Carnaval" and "Samba De Orpheus". However, Guaraldi also managed to pen his own amazing track – "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" – a lyrical romping piano instrumental that went onto become a huge charting instrumental hit during the 60s. The track's been heard a million times over the years, but it's still pretty darn great – and it's surrounded in a nice set with other tunes that have the same feel – including "O Nosso Amour", "Alma-Ville", "Since I Fell For You", and "Moon River". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Fontana pressing) ... LP
Fontana, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaConcerto De Aranjuez ... CD
East Wind (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Guitarist Laurindo Almeida returns to a bit of his roots here – but he also shows off a lot of the jazz experience he's picked up along the way! The album features Almeida working solo on acoustic guitar – although possibly overdubbed alongside himself at times – and while the set begins with the serious title composition, things never get too much in the realm of classical guitar – and instead have Almeida skirting many different styles, including a bit of bossa guitar – and working with this uniquely echoey recording style that makes each note resonate with a richly expressive sound! Titles include "Cool Cat Keeps Coat On", "Holiday For Strings", "Songs From Black Orpheus", "The Summer Knows", and "Star Dust". CD

✨✧ Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteLive At El Matador ... LP
Fantasy, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
A hip little live date from the team of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – one that's a bit heavier on Vince's piano than Bola's guitar – but in a way that's a-OK with us! There's a sweetly gliding sensibility to the whole set – that warm lyricism and subtle soul that Guaraldi always brought to his own 60s gems for Fantasy Records – a style made most famous by his work on the Peanuts cartoons at the time, but which comes off with an even deeper vibe here. There's a bit of rhythm backing behind the players – although that's also somewhat gentle too – and titles include long versions of "Favela" and "More", plus the "Black Orpheus Suite" – and the tracks "El Matador", "I'm A Loser", and "People". LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey LewisDancing In The Street ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $0.99
A late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with the Young/Holt group – mostly featuring familiar numbers transformed by the Lewis Trio's hard-grooving approach to their work! It's great to hear Maurice White in a pre-Earth Wind & Fire jazz setting – and the album's got a slightly more open sound than some of Ramsey's earlier live dates – especially on the Brazilian tinged numbers that include "Mood For Mendes", "Corcovado", and "Medley From Black Orpheus". Other tracks include "Struttin Lightly", "Dancing In The Street", "You Don't Know Me", and "What Now My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius de Moraes with Maria Creuza & Maria BethaVinicius De Moraes En La Fusa Con Maria Creuza Y Toquinho ... CD
Random (Argentina), 1970. Used ... $6.99
A rare session by Vinicius – featuring a 1970 recording in Buenos Aires – with Maria Creuza and Toquinho. Creuzza was at her best during the early 70s – and working here with the classic bossa team of poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Canto De Osshana", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"! CD

Kunihiko SuganoSake To Bara No Hibi (Days Of Wine & Roses) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trio/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
A great early album from pianist Kunhiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working in a relaxed live setting, in a small Japanese club that also features a conga added to his usual trio! Most numbers begin with an introspective introduction from Sugano – those lyrical lines he does so well – then the trio gets moving with a nice sort of kick that really opens up the longer solos – with that majestic, soulful style that some of the best Japanese pianists of the time did so well! The record's a classic in the 70s Japanese piano style – and the group features Izao Suzuki on bass, Shinji Mori on drums, and Yoichi Ogawa on congas. Titles include "Good Morning Heartache", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Black Orpheus", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

Marpessa DawnMarpessa Dawn EP Collection ... CD
Barclay (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A cool collection of work from the enigmatic Marpessa Dawn – an artist you might know best for her work in the film Black Orpheus – and a heck of a groovy singer as well! The style of the work is very much in the spirit of the film's famous soundtrack, but a bit more lyrical too – as Marpessa sings both French and Portuguese lyrics – on some tracks arranged by Sivuca, some from the film, and some that almost have a groovy French femme pop approach! Titles include "Carnaval Samba", "Samba D'Orphee", "Adieu Tristesse", "La Fille De La Montagne", "C'est Lui Ma Vie", and "Va-t En Vit Mon Amour". CD

Paul DesmondTake Ten (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA, 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the Hall/Desmond collaborations for RCA – A sublime showcase not just for Paul's impeccable alto, but also for the amazing tones and chromes that fly freely from the strings of Jim's guitar! Both players are set up with just a bit of gentle backing – light percussion from Connie Kay, and a bit of bass from Gene Cherico or Gene Wright. The whole thing's a well-conceived study in economy, as the two players craft sly and subtle lines around spare drum and bass backings – slowly hanging sound in space to weave a rich web of sound that's as compelling as it seems to be effortless! Titles include "Take Ten", "El Prince", "Embarcadero", "Samba De Orfeu", "Theme From Black Orpheus", and "Alone Together". CD also features alternate takes of "Embarcadero" and "El Prince". CD

✨✧ Donald Byrd & John JenkinsStar Eyes (aka Jazz Eyes) ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little session – an oft-overlooked gem from Savoy's legendary hard bop years of the 50s – reissued many years later with an added bonus track! Altoist John Jenkins leads the session – which also features Donald Byrd – who gets co-billed as leader on this reissue, plus Curtis Fuller, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor – and with a lineup like that, you can hardly miss! The set grooves like one of the best edgy Prestige blowing sessions from the time – long tracks, lots of room for solos, and a surprising coherency that really drives the whole thing. Features the 4 longish tracks from the original LP – "Orpheus", "Honeylike", "Rockaway", and "Star Eyes", plus a take of "Darn That Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Circular Moves, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Recorded live in Buenos Aires, but a strong set of work from three Brazilian greats! Singer Maria Crueza was at her best during the early 70s – and working here with the classic bossa team of poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Copa Do Mundo", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"! CD

Family/Universal (UK), 1970s/2004. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A stellar entry in the Trip series – curated this time by effervescent aural groovers Saint Eteinne! Much like the other compilations in the series, the track list is mined from the deep, rich vaults of Universal and subsidiaries – and it's groovy as can be!
