✨✧ 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 SalvadorYou Ain't Heard Nothin Yet! ... LP
Dauntless, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and heavy! Cover has some light wear on the spine, but is nice overall.)

Tal FarlowThis Is Tal Farlow ... LP
Verve, 1958. Near Mint- ... $33.99
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".

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Sallie BlairSqueeze Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sallie Blair never cut many records back in the day – but she's a hell of a great singer, and one with a really memorable approach! As you might guess from the image on the cover, Sallie's got a fair bit of personality – a way of putting over a tune that's really compelling, and a lot more charming than some of her more cool-voiced contemporaries – especially on the Bethlehem label. Her vocals are great, but her sense of individuality is even better – and there's a quality to the record that really makes it stand out from the pack. Richard Wess handles the arrangements – some with a small combo of Bethlehem players – Sal Salvador on guitar, Sanford Gold on piano, and Milt Hinton on bas – some with larger groups that expand the sound without losing the intimacy of the vocals. Titles include "Similau", "Better Luck Next Time", "Squeeze Me", "Come By Sunday", and "How Long Has This Been Going On". CD

Luiz BonfaIntrospection/The New Face Of Luiz Bonfa ... CD
RCA/Five Four, 1970/1971. New Copy ... $8.99
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! Tracks include "Helicopter 274", "Window Girl", "Peixe Bom", "Salvador", and "Africana" – and the record sounds like a lost 70s Italian soundtrack! CD

G/9 Group with Wilson Das Neves & Dom SalvadorBrazil Now! (Peruvian pressing) ... LP
CBS (Peru), 1968. Very Good ... $49.99
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

Egberto GismontiDanca Dos Escravos ... CD
ECM (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... $19.99
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

MacondoMacondo ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $7.99
A blend of soulful styles from the mighty Macondo! This self-titled set is pretty hip batch of tracks – sort of a mixture of early 70s LA Latin funk, with some lighter elements of Brazilian music, possibly added into the record by Claudio Slon, who produced the set for Sergio Mendes. The best cuts have hard-jamming organ and guitars, rocking along in an El Chicano mode – but some of the others have mellower vocals that work really well, too! Titles include "Do It To Me", "Wishes", "Get It On Girl", "Sneaking In The Back Door", "Why", "Battery", "Never Thought I'd See You Gone" and "Cayuco". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michel MagneEmmanuele 4/SAS A San Salvador ... CD
Music Box (France), 1982/1984. New Copy ... $23.99
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

Dom Um RomaoSpirit Of The Times ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! 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".

Dom SalvadorDom Salvador Trio ... CD
Mocambo/Mr Bongo (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Wicked jazzy bossa from 60s Brazil – a crackling early classic from pianist Dom Salvador! The group here is super-tight – a tremendous triangle of piano, bass, and drums – all grooving at equal pace, with a great deal of energy – and given a heck of a lot of soul from Dom's bold lines on the piano! There's a slight lyrical vibe at points, too – making for music that's mighty sweet, and very seductive – and the whole thing's right up there with some of the best bossa trio dates of the time. Trio features bass by Edson Lobo and drums by Victor Manga – and titles include "Arrastao", "Promessa", "Pro Batera", "Santarem", and "Tematrio". CD

Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 4 CD & DVD ... $32.99
A really special collection of work – one that focuses on the production efforts of the legendary Jacques Canetti – easily one of the hippest talents on the French scene in the postwar years! Canetti did a tremendous job of bringing out the more literate, sophisticated side of French music during the time – and gave important early exposure to artists like Brigitte Fontaine, Jacques Higelin, Serge Reggiani, and Jeanne Moreau – as well as bigger names like Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, Henri Salvador, Juliette Greco, Boris Vian, Yves Montand, Jacqueline Francois, and Patachou – all of whom are featured in this massive set! The package focuses on early recordings done by Canetti – including some jazz work in the 30s – then moves to the important material that came out on his own groundbreaking label, including projects with authors as well. The 4CDs feature a total of 80 songs – in a book-style package with lots of great images – and the whole thing also comes with a DVD of rare performances by Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg, Jeanne Moreau, Serge Reggiani, and Guy Beart.

✨✧ Meridian BrothersSalvadora Robot (with download) ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from The Meridian Brothers – not a family act at all, but really just a one man operation – yet with a sound that's more than large enough to bring in a whole host of South and Central American influences! Eblis Alvarez uses elements of cumbia, merengue, and other Latin styles – all to create these weirdly offbeat rhythms which are then peppered with acoustic and electric instruments – never in ways that are gimmicky, and always with this organic, spontaneous quality that makes you feel like you've unearthed a crate of obscure Colombian singles in the back corner of an urban flea market! Only a few tracks have a relatively contemporary vibe, but even those echo with older sounds and styles – and titles include "Salvadora Robot", "Somos Los Residentes", "Jefe Indio Vengara", "Doctor Trompeta", and "Un Principe Miserable Y Malvado".

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 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".

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".

Milestone, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't be put off by the late date of the session, because this is an excellent album from McCoy Tyner – and one with a very spiritual groove that's clearly inherited from Coltrane! The album's based around longer compositions arranged by Tyner, and orchestrated by the great William S Fischer – with lead solos by Hubert Laws on flutes and McCoy on piano, over soaring searching backings that push onward with the same kind of soulful sound as some of Tyner's earlier Blue Note albums. Fischer, as always, manages to balance complexity with straight-ahead grooving – and the clean sound of the album is a surprise throughout! Titles include "Salvadore De Samba", "Beyond The Sun", "Fly With The Wind", and "Rolem". LP, Vinyl record album

Tres chic, indeed – a mighty cool set that's overflowing with very cool French sounds from the 60s – the groovier side of the spectrum from the Parisian scene at the time – and the kind of tracks that are still opening plenty of ears all these many years later! The cover image of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin is well-placed – as lots of the music here has the same appeal as Serge's own early grooves – as the set list moves easily between French pop, soundtrack numbers, and even some jazzier bits too – all to serve up 40 tracks at a mighty nice price! Titles include "Quel Temps Fait-Il A Paris" by Alain Romans, "Une Petite Fille" by Claude Nougaro, "Fais Moi Mal Johnny" by Magali Noel, "Du Jazz Dans Le Ravin" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Sir Jack L'Eventreur" by Juliette Greco, "Oh Quelle Nuit" by Sacha Distel, "Stockholm Sweetnin" by Les Double Six, "Nouvelle Vague" by Richard Anthony, "Mon Oncle" by Franck Barcellini, "Ca Me Demange" by Eddie Constantine, "Le Loup La Biche Et Le Chevallier" by Henri Salvador, and "Si Tu Vas A Rio" by Dario Moreno.

The album includes some songwriting contributions from Lou Reed, Sting, and Elvis Costello – and titles include "Chameleons", "Shamed Into Love", "In Salvador", "The Calm Before The Storm", "The Miranda Syndrome", "Letters To The Vatican", "I Can't Say", and "The Hit".
