Sal SalvadorFrivolous Sal (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1956. Used ... $11.99
Guitarist Sal Salvador made few albums as a leader during his day – but all of them are a treat, especially this one! The set's a mid 50s outing that features Sal's guitar in a quartet with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes – and grooving in a lightly swinging style that has some traces of east coast chamber jazz of the time, but which also displays Salvador's unique fascination with tone, sound, shape, and color! Salvador has a way of approaching the electric guitar that's like few other players in jazz – sometimes coming on full swing, other times laying back and letting the strings and their sounds shape the progression of tunes on the set. Titles include "Salaman", "I Love You", "Handful Of Stars", "Frivolous Sal", "Tangerine", "You Could Swing For That", and "All The Things You Are". CD

Sal SalvadorShades Of Sal Salvador ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. Used ... $11.99
Wonderful 50s work from guitarist Sal Salvador – a record that features some great work by Phil Woods on alto sax! Given that Sal often recorded in a small combo mode that usually highlighted his guitar in the lead, the presence of Woods is really a nice surprise here – especially since Phil's at that key early point in his career, when he was playing with a raspy edge that could really add a lot to a session! The players here shift a bit from track to track – and Woods is on 7 of the album's 11 tracks – joined on some of the best by Eddie Bert on trombone and Eddie Costa on vibes. Titles include "Joe & Me", "Carioca", "Delighted", "I've Got A Feelin", "I Hadn't Anyone Til You", and "Took The Spook". CD

Sal SalvadorTribute To The Greats ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1957. Used ... $11.99
Sal Salvador pays tributes to the jazz greats of his time – Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and others – but also serves things up at a level that's very much his own bag too! The album's got a spare, stripped-down groove that really suits Salvador's guitar well – giving Sal plenty of room to craft these round, warm lines that are full of color and tonal depth – often with a sense of rhythm that makes things groove, even when moving slowly. The group has just the right sort of balance to fit the mood that Sal's going for – with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Frank Dallas on bass, and Ronnie Free on drums. Titles include "Manteca", "Ruby My Dear", "Yardbird Suite", "Cool Eyes", "Taps Miller", and "Solos For Guitar". CD

✨✧ Sal SalvadorSal Salvador Quintet/Quartet/Kenton Presents Sal Salvador ... CD
Blue Note, 1953/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sal Salvador was one of the 50's more accomplished modernist talents on jazz guitar – and his work ranks up there with players like Tal Farlow, or Gil Melle's great bandmate Joe Cinderella. This long-overdue CD brings together some of his best work from the mid 50s – by pairing one rare Blue Note 10" jazz session with another album that Salvador cut as part of Capitol's "Stan Kenton Presents" series. The Blue Note session's got some great tracks that feature tenorist Frank Sokolow, an icy toned genius who's never gotten his just dues. Other cuts (on both the Blue Note and Capitol sessions) feature Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, and titles from both include "See", "Round Trip", "Wheels", "Salutations", "Down Home", and "Yesterdays". 18 cuts in all, in a great looking package that replicates the orignal cover art!

✨✧ Sal SalvadorYou Ain't Heard Nothin Yet! ... LP
Dauntless, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty great little album from guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't record much, but who was right up there with 50s talents like Tal Farlow and Kenny Burrell! Salvador's got a sweet and clean single-line style that works magically with the rich arrangements on the set by Larry Wilcox's big band – a very hip ensemble that features players that include Joe Farrell, Charlie Mariano, Eddie Bert, and Dave Frishberg. A couple of tracks feature vocals by Sheryl Easly – and titles include "Space Walk", "Blues March", "The Old Gnu", "Colors In Sound", "Love You Are Here", "Ambulating", and "Boato".

Don BagleyJazz On The Rocks ... CD
Regent/Blue Moon (Spain), 1957. Used ... $14.99
An obscure little Savoy jazz session – recorded by a group led by bassist Don Bagley, but featuring some especially great work from alto saxophonist Phil Woods! Woods is captured here at a real turning point in his career – that late 50s time when he was putting away some of his more bop-leaning tendencies, and hitting a sound that was modern, yet warm – exploratory, yet always soulfully in the pocket! The Woods solos alone are the main reason we love this record so much – but the set also features excellent work from Sal Salvador on guitar, Charlie Persip on drums, and Eddie Costa on both piano and vibes. The track list is all original material by Bagley, with a few tunes that really stretch out nicely – and titles include "Batter Up", "Bull Pen", "Come Out Swingin", "Hold In There", and "Miss De Minor".

Howard RobertsMr Roberts Plays Guitar ... LP
Verve, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Howard Roberts' first album as a leader – a unique little session recorded for Verve, and one that's done with a different feel than his later work for Capitol! And in fact, the session's even different than most Verve work from the time – as it's got Roberts soloing over larger group and small combo backing – in a mode that's similar to records cut for other labels by players like Joe Puma or Sal Salvador, with a real focus on deeper tones and colors overall. Backings change from track to track – and include arrangements by Marty Paich, Bob Enevoldsen, Bill Holman, and Roberts himself – and we almost think that the session might have been recorded for another label and leased by Verve – given how different it is from most of their work of the time. The players change as often as the arrangements – but some musicians include Bob Cooper on tenor, Pete Jolly on piano, and Herb Geller on alto – on tracks that include "Serenata Burlesca", "The Innocents", "Ah Moore", "An Orchid For Miss Sterling", and "Jillzie".

Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $19.99
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he thankfully got to cut this excellent album as a leader for Bethlehem in the middle part of the decade! The record features a nicely stripped-down combo – with Eddie Bert on trombone, Sal Salvador on guitar, and Eddie Costa on piano – and the overall feel is icy and cool, with distinct touches of Lee Konitz, and a tightly arranged sound which then lets Frank break out strongly against on his solos. Titles include "Miss Finegold", "Little Joe", "Farfel", "Swing Low Sweet Socolow", and "I Love You". One we almost never see on vinyl, either! LP, Vinyl record album

Lenny HambroNature of Things ... CD
Epic (Japan), Mid 50s. New Copy ... About October 15, 2015
An excellent album of tunes with a cool Konitz-like sound – featuring the vastly under-discovered reed work of Lenny Hambro, with piano by Eddie Costa, and guitar by either Sal Salvador or Barry Galbraith. The tracks are short and angular – but have a particularly soulful groove in the mix, one that's really surprising, considering that the overall package makes you think the record would be some sleepy over-wrought major label jazz side. Swings like a mofo from a label like Storyville or Bethlehem – and with tracks that include "Comin Thru", "Blue Light", "I Love You Much Too Much", "Libation For Celebration", and "My Future Just Passed".

✨✧ Tal FarlowThis Is Tal Farlow ... LP
Verve, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Guitar jazz genius from the amazing Tal Farlow – working here at the height of his powers on a classic session for Verve – a real standout album from the 50s, and one with some slightly more modern overtones than even other Farlow sessions at the time! Part of the strength of the set is the piano work of Eddie Costa – which dances nicely in between the notes, often creating the same sense of counterpoint and interplay as on Costa's excellent albums with Sal Salvador from the same period. Farlow's tone is amazing throughout – rough and pointed, yet always fluid – and titles include "Lean On Me", "The More I See You", "Stella By Starlight", "Topsy", "All The Things You Are", and "Wonder Why".

Luiz BonfaNew Face Of Luiz Bonfa ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
A wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don Sebesky or Claus Ogerman at the end of the 60s, a perfect foil for the tighter guitar work of Bonfa – making the album one of the best showcases of his style from the time! Tracks include "Helicopter 274", "Window Girl", "Peixe Bom", "Salvador", and "Africana" – and the record sounds like a lost 70s Italian soundtrack! LP, Vinyl record album

G/9 Group with Wilson Das Neves & Dom SalvadorBrazil Now! (Peruvian pressing) ... LP
CBS (Peru), 1968. Very Good ... $43.99
A lost bit of dreamy bossa from the 60s – recorded in Brazil at the end of the decade, but unavailable to most of the world for years! The session's got a gently snapping, always jazzy approach that easily matches the best takes on the bossa coming out from Rio and LA at the time – and the album's done in a style that really makes best use of the warmly soulful piano lines of Dom Salvador, while also hitting some harder rhythms that bristle with plenty of bossa jazz energy, thanks to the presence of drummer Wilson Das Neves! Vocals are often in a mode that showcases singer Valeria, but with support from harmonies on the chorus – and the record's got a sunny sort of groove that almost reminds us of classics by Mario Castro Neves & Samba SA! Titles include "Sambou Sambou", "Ponteio", "Viola Enluarada", "Vesti Azul", "Lady Madonna", "Deixa", "Alegria Alegria", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenyatta plays with a very nice group that includes Dom Salvador on piano and organ, Stafford James on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with a good rolling feel to them.

Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
A brilliant record right from the very first note! This amazing first album by the Rio 65 Trio is a solid gem all the way through – a magical moment in the recording studio, and a record that forever changed the face of bossa! The trio features piano work by jazz legend Dom Salvador – playing in a freewheeling and open-handed style that evokes far more moods, tones, and colors than you'd get from the average bossa session – supported by drummer Edison Machado and bassist Sergio Barroso, both of whom manage to be tight and loose at the same time, grooving in modes that are simply stunning all the way through. A true treasure, and one that we'd never pass up! Filled with great cuts that include "Meu Fraco E Cafe Forte", "Farjuto", "Sonnymoon For Two", "Tem Do", "Azul Contente", "Mau Mau", and "Minha Namorada". CD

Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo".

Known world-round for his classic work with Sergio Mendes and Weather Report, percussionist Dom Um Romao is one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, and this compilation of 1976 recordings for Pablo has him playing in a nice raw groove. The tracks have a beautifully jazzy sound, and feature lots of great Latin players, like Claudio Roditi, Ronnie Cuber, Dom Salvador, and Mauricio Smith. The group's joined by Sivuca, who adds his usual delightful tone to a number of tracks on the album. Titles include "Spring", "Cisco Two", "Piparapara", "Tumbalele", "Escravos De Jo", and "Mistura Fina". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

An incredible album by the Tamba 4 – one of 2 albums the Brazilian bossa combo did in the US for A&M Records, during the brief time when they were expanded to a quartet from the original Tamba Trio lineup! The set is completely sublime – a wonderful mix of the group's trademark harmony vocals and crackling bossa rhythms, with the warmly flowing CTI production style of the time – not funky like the CTI sound of the 70s, but a bit more sophisticated than the style Creed Taylor had been using earlier at Verve. Tracks are short, breezy, and often very lively – bossa grooving warmed in the California sun – and titles include "Samba Blim", "Watch What Happens", "Pregao", "San Salvador", "Know It All", and "Palladium".

Mr Bongo (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2013. Used ... $7.99
Brazilian Beats have come a long way in just seven volumes – from an initial series approach that focused on older bossa and samba grooves, to this crackling set that's filled with great contemporary moments too! The package may well be the most exciting in the collection so far – as it effortlessly shifts between current grooves from the underground and older gems from the 60s and 70s – showing a never-ending sense of creative combination in Brazilian music – the kind of fresh, groundbreaking sounds that have always had our ears turned towards the music of Rio, Sao Paolo, Recife, and Salvador! The set pulls you in right away with some really wonderful sounds – then opens your mind to a great mix of tracks that includes "Boa Noite" by Karol Conka, "Melo Do Vatapa" by Bemba Trio, "Esquindindin" by Som Sete, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Junip, "Deixa Eu Dizer" by Claudia, "Luiza Manequim" by Abilio Manoel, "Selvagem" by Wan Trio, "Corridos E Toques De Capoeira" by Mestre Bimba, "Plateau (part 1)" by Jackson Conti, "Pra Fazer Um Samba" by Cizinha, "Autorizando" by Jorge Autuori, and "Caminho Livre" by Coaty De Oliveira.

A heady batch of psychedelic samba from the 60s onward – and some wonderful modern takes on the style, too! Compiler John Armstrong took special care here to include a number of fairly recent numbers that very strongly represent the diverse Brazilian tropical psychedelia of the 60s & 70s, as well as some prime vintage gems, which is a smart way to demonstrate how fresh and vital the sounds are to this day. Tropical rhythms and fuzzy psych atmosphere galore! A genuine win for the Rough Guide team – with tunes by Marcos Valle, Wal Sant'ana, Luri Andrade, Poeta De Aco, Graveola, Vitor Rami with Ney Matogrosso and others. 15 tracks in all, including "Que Vida E Essa" by Wal Sant'Ana, "Canina Intuicao" by Graveola, "Irene" by Alma Tropicalia, "Sao Jorge" by Meta Meta, "Folia No Vento": by Luri Andrade, "Bunaye" by Zulumbi, "Tarde Demaise" by Binario, "Nao Precisa" by Luciano Salvador Bahia & Ava Rocha, "Vamos Sambar" by Marcos Valle, "Desiligia A Rede" and more.

The album's recorded in a style that really makes the best use of Jimmy's reed work – angling the tunes with some slight jazzy touches, but still sticking in a straighter salsa mode, with lead vocals by Angelo Pacheco and Salvador Tirado.

Music Box (France), 1982/1984. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two sweet 80s scores from Michel Magne – still very much at the top of his game here! First up is the sexy soundtrack for Emmanuelle 4 – done in a style that's very similar to some of the 70s films in the series, but with some slight 80s twists in the instrumentation and overall execution. Instrumentation includes the requisite sweet keyboards needed to convey Euro sexiness – but there's also a few nice Brazilian touches which open up some of the more tropical scenes in the films. A few numbers feature vocals – by David Rose and Christiane Legrand – and titles include "La Pampa", "La Bergerie", "Bach Anal", "Prisoner Of Love", "Fuite D'Emmanuelle", and "Bresil My Love". Next up is SAS A San Salvador – obviously a more serious film at some level, yet handled by Magne with some 80s "action" modes that are heavy on processed keyboards and electric touches – very much what you'd expect for a film like this at the time. David Rose again sings two numbers – and titles include "Sex Love & Money", "Theme Cubain", "Theme Malko", "To Be My Love", and "SAS A San Salvador". CD

Mocambo/Whatmusic (UK), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic trio material from one of Brazil's greatest pianists ever! Dom Salvador was a heck of a player back in the 60s – working in a tight trio format that was certainly part of the bossa combo sound of his day, yet also heavily influenced by American soul jazz artists of the same era. Here, he's working in an early trio with Edison Machado on drums – switching effortlessly between piano and organ as the rhythm section spins out lush, lyrical lines with more than a bit of soul in the mix. Many of the tracks on the album are quite obscure, making for a fresh little set that goes way past the usual piano trio side from 60s Brazil! Titles include "Indio Perdido", "Samborio", "Um Sonho Azul", "Balanco Do Mar Onda Quebrando", "Fred's Ahead", "Sonho De Carnaval", "Iluminando O Vazio", "A Cancao Do Amor Que Nasceu", and "Eu Compro Essa Mulher".

RCA/Five Four, 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great guitar from Luiz Bonfa – two albums that have the bossa legend moving way past his roots! Introspection has Bonfa recording in New York – a superb solo guitar session that has him playing the instrument as a "miniature orchestra", shading in a rich array of colors, tones, and harmonic spaces through his expert manipulation of the strings. There's still a bit of his earlier bossa phrasing in the record – but it mostly shows Bonfa as a richly talented individual on his instrument, moving past simple instrumental modes into virtuoso territory! Titles include "Adventure In Space", "Reflections", "Enchanted Mirror", "Concerto For Guitar", and "Rain". New Face Of Luiz Bonfa is a wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don Sebesky or Claus Ogerman at the end of the 60s, a perfect foil for the tighter guitar work of Bonfa – making the album one of the best showcases of his style from the time!

No keyboards, no percussion, no other instrumentation at all – just acoustic guitar from the great Egberto Gismonti, but used at a tremendously creative level! The songs are loose and free – never outside, but also not bossa or samba either – always those new paths forward that Egberto brought to his music, heard here in a wonderfully unadorned setting that allows us to appreciate his ideas more than ever! And despite the focus on solo instrumentation, the set's incredibly dynamic – hardly a mellow affair at all, and instead filled with fire and freedom throughout – all in ways that are light years past any previous guitar conceptions from Span, Brazil, or other scenes. Titles include "2 Violes", "Danca Dos Escravos", "Lundu", "Alegrinho", and "Salvador". CD
