Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

Maria BethaniaMel ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1979. Used ... $14.99
A gentler, more laidback album that some of Maria Bethania's more dramatic efforts from the early 70s – but still a pretty great little record, served up with a sense of poise and power that few of her contemporaries could match! Backings are arranged by Perinho Albuquerque, in a way that's often relatively spare, but still full at the bottom – letting the vocals take most of the top of the sound, in a way that makes for a nicely personal quality to the record. Tracks include numbers written by Joyce, Caetano Veloso, and Luiz Gonzaga Jr – with titles that include "Queda D'Agua", "Mel", "Gota De Sangue", "Da Cor Brazileira", and "Ela E Eu". CD

Luiz Bonfa & Maria ToledoBraziliana ... CD
Philips/Verve, 1965. Used ... $9.99
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with vocals from his wife Maria Toledo – a really wonderful singer with very Astrud-like appeal! The album's got some larger backings from Bobby Scott, who brings in a nice undercurrent of jazz – and while some of Bonfa's other work of the time is somewhat spare and dreamy, the style is nicely full here. Toledo sings in both English and Portuguese, and even scats wordlessly a bit – which we really like – on titles that include "Sambura", "Whistle Samba", "Tanto Amor", "Boticario", "Promessa", and "Sugar Loaf".

Chico BuarqueChico Canta ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $17.99
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album from 1972. Arrangements are big and baroque, and the approach to the material opens things up a lot more than usual – especially from Chico's late 60s albums that are more in a "singer with orchestra mode". All tracks feature music by Ruy Guerra, whose style works very well with Lobo's sound – and Chico has a sweet edge in his voice that pushes things even further. Titles include "Prologo", "Barbara", "Ana De Amsterdam", "Fado Tropical", "Fortaleza", "Cobra De Vidro", "Nao Existe Pecado Ao Sul Do Equador/Boi Voador Nao Pode", and "Tatuagem". CD

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

Philips (Brazil), 1980. Used ... $11.99
Gal pays tribute to the great work of Ary Barroso in this moody set of tracks arranged by Roberto Menescal and Perna Froes. The sound is similar to some of Gal's other smooth LPs from the time, with a nice undercurrent of jazz that works well with Barroso's compositions. Caetano Veloso joins Gal on a duet of "No Tabuleiro Da Bahiana", and other tracks include "E Luxo So", "Folha Morta", "Camisa Amarela", "Aquarela Do Brasil", and "Novo Amor". CD

Klaus DoldingerDoldinger Goes On ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A lost treasure from German saxophonist Klaus Doldinger – one of his best records from the 60s, recorded at a key point when he was really shifting his style! The set's still got Klaus working with keyboardist Ingfried Hoffmann, whose work on organ made his early records so great – but on this set Hoffmann also shifts from organ to piano on a few of the tracks, working through a modal jazz style that has strong leanings towards the nascent Saba/MPS groove of the time! Doldinger himself is also really opening up – playing soprano sax as well as tenor, and going for a snakey sort of tone that fits in really well with the modally grooves, and which also sets the stage for a European style of sax work of the 70s, without all of the overindulgences that would show up in his own later work. Really great stuff all the way through, and a groove-happy album that's filled with delights! Titles include "Watch It", "Just A Little Bit Of Soul", "Five For You", "Tears", and "Quartenwalzer". Never issued in the US, either! CD

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgGainsbourg Percussions ... CD
Philips (France), 1964. Used ... $3.99
Groovy groovy groovy! A rare early session by Serge Gainsbourg, recorded with French jazz great Alain Gouraguer – and done with a really wonderful Latin-esque sound! The album's one of Serge's greatest from the early years – a sublime blend of Left Bank jazz and American Latin rhythms – all topped off by Gainsbourg's darkly compelling vocals. Gouraguer's especially great on the set – creating these moody and rhythmic passages that are really Serge's first attempt to hit a groove! Titles include "New York USA", "Coco & Co", "Les Sambassadeurs", "Machins Choses", "Les Yeux Doux", "Pauvre Lola", "Quand Mon", "Tatou Jeremie", and more! CD

Serge GainsbourgManon 70/Se J'etais Un Epsion/Mister Freedom/Anna ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the grooviest soundtrack work ever from Serge Gainsbourg – and that's saying a heck of a lot! The CD begins with the legendary score to Manon 70 – a collaboration between Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier, and one that's graced with some breathy vocals from Serge, and some wonderfully hip instrumentation from Colombier! There's some slight exotic touches in the mix – a bit of sitar, some nice percussion, a touch of Hammond – plus some straighter orchestral moments. Next up is Si J'Etais Un Espion from 1967 – which features some great instrumental tracks that snap along with some great jerky undercurrents – the start of that funky Gainsbourg sound that we love so much. Le Jardinier D'Argenteuil follows with a slightly more serious feel – and then the groovy TV soundtrack for Anna ends the whole thing up – with some especially wonderful 60s French pop grooves, and tunes that are different than the Anna film soundtrack! CD features 19 tracks in all – including "Manon", "Regards Echanges", "Auto Stop", "Breakdown", "Pop D'Epoque", "Denoument Et Final", "Jerks En Cavalerie", "Anna", "Roller Girl", and "New Delire Again".

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and an album not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", "Dizzy Atmosphere" and the non-LP cut "Early Mornin' Blues". CD

Dizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of ParisDizzy Gillespie & The Double Six Of Paris ... CD
Philips, 1963. Used ... $7.99
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting approach to jazz vocals that was very much in the tradition of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but also drew inspiration from the earlier work of Eddie Jefferson, King Pleasure, and others. Their sound is great – much more 60s groovy than some other vocal groups – and pairing them with Dizzy gives this record an added punch that some of their other sessions are missing! Backing is small combo throughout – with either Bud Powell or Kenny Barron on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and James Moody on tenor – and with the presence of Diz, most of the material here is of bop orientation – taken at a fast and lively clip! Lalo Schifrin arranged the whole session too – and titles include "One Bass Hit", "Blue N Boogie", "Emanon", "Groovin High", "Ow", "The Champ", "Tin Tin Deo", "Hot House", and "Con Alma". CD
