Sal SalvadorFrivolous Sal (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1956. Used ... $13.99
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 SalvadorMusic To Stop Smoking By ... LP
Roulette, 1963. Near Mint- ... $26.99
Well, this one's not really the kind of album that will make you throw away your Marlboros – but it is a great set of jazz tracks by Sal Salvador, despite a goofy cover and title! The album was issued by Roulette during the time of its "how to strip" and "how to bellydance" classics – but it's honestly just a straight batch of jazz tunes played by Sal on guitar, with small combo backing that includes Ray Starling on piano, John Beal on bass, and Lennie McBrowne on drums. Sal's guitar is right out front, sounding as strong as on other albums of the period – and the only relation to the title of the set is in the choice of tunes, all which are kind of jokes on quitting smoking: "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "I'll Never Be Free", "You Go To My Head", "You Irritate Me So", and the original tune "Stop Smoking Or Else Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Sal SalvadorTribute To The Greats ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
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 ... $18.99
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

Sallie BlairSqueeze Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Stan KentonNew Concepts Of Artistry In Rhythm ... LP
Capitol, 1952. Very Good ... $4.99
Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. LP, Vinyl record album

Howard RobertsMr Roberts Plays Guitar ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good- ... $4.99
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 ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! CD

Ruben BladesNothing But The Truth ... LP
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1988. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of Ruben Blades' key crossover efforts of the 80s – and an album that has him stepping far from the salsa ghetto of the 70s, into a much wider range of styles! Most of the lyrics here are in English – as on other Blades from the time – and although the instrumentation echoes some Latin styles, there's also a more contemporary pop approach going on too. 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".

✨✧ 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

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".

The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut!

Spirit Of The Times is 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".

Charlie RouseCinnamon Flower ... LP
Douglas, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great later effort from tenor sax giant Charlie Rouse – a record that's quite different than his 50s hardbop or his 60s modernist work with Thelonious Monk – but still pretty darn great in its own sort of way! The album features Rouse working with a larger ensemble in a batch of tracks that has a distinct Brazilian influence – not one from bossa nova, but from the more sophisticated Brazilian jazz modes of later years – particularly as the style started to pick up from some of the arranging modes used in MPB. The players here are all well-suited to the session – and include Clifford Adams on trombone, Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Dom Salvador on piano, Ted Dunbar on guitar, Amaury Tristao on acoustic guitar, Ron Carter on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Wilbur Bascomb on bass – all working together in a style that's somewhat complicated, yet which has an open-ended flow, and a very joyous sensibility overall! Arrangements are by Dom Salvador and Amaury Tristao – and titles include Salvador's romping groover "On The Corner – a real jazz dance classic – plus "Sertao", "Desencontro", "Alvorada", "Natal No Interior", and "Cravo Canela".

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

Mr Bongo (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2013. New Copy ... $9.99
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.

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.

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.

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

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".

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".

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!

The package seems to go even deeper than Ether's first batch of Brazilian goodies picked by Gilles – and serves up one disc of funky classics from the 60s and 70s, plus a full second disc of newer tunes from around the globe – all numbers that draw keen inspiration from the best sound of older Brazilian music, and a number of which are previously unreleased! Older classics include "Cascavel" by Antonio Adolfo, "Reflexos" by Luiz Eca, "Homem Da Rua" by Lo Borges, "Procura Se Uma Virgem" by Orquestra St Moritz, "Samba Do Carioca" by Silvio Cesar, "Que Bandeira" by Evinha, "Lalari Olala" by Jorge Ben, "Hei Voce" by Dom Salvador & Abolicao, and "Baiao Violado" by Dominguinhos. Newer tracks include "A Pomba Girou" by Zero DB, "Calma Mamma (GP mix)" by Echo Soundsystem, "Beira Do Mar" by S-Tone Inc, "E Muita Dig Vei (Mar De Clive-Lowe mix)" by Ed Motta, "Ritmo Suave Bossa Nova" by Jaydee, "Vaga Lume" by Democustico, and "Clek Clek Boom" by Voltair.

✨✧ Luiz BonfaIntrospection/The New Face Of Luiz Bonfa ... CD
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! Tracks include "Helicopter 274", "Window Girl", "Peixe Bom", "Salvador", and "Africana" – and the record sounds like a lost 70s Italian soundtrack! CD
