✨✧ Sansa TrioSansa Trio Vol 2 ... CD
Som Maior/Paradise Masters (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful second album from the Sansa Trio – one of the more obscure combos of the 60s bossa era! The group here is heavy on piano lines from Jose Briamonte – but also features bass from Jose Odonez and drums from a very young Airto! Briamonte's a great player on the keys – one with a style that's rhythmic, but also filled with lots of bright notes that really leap out beautifully – creating a lot of lyrical interplay on the album, even when the grooves are upbeat and driving. The whole thing's got a really free and fluid sound – and titles include "Bossa So", "Foi Assim", "Chuva", "Cao Xango", "Aruanda", "Mar Amar", "A Resposta", and "Sambidu". CD

Sambalanco TrioImproviso Negro ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1965. Used ... $12.99
One of the rare few albums recorded by Sambalanco Trio in the 60s – a brilliant mix of piano, bass, and drums – and still the blueprint for the bossa combo sound! The group featured a young Airto on drums, Cesar Camargo Mariano on piano, and Humberto Clayber on bass – and the sound here is a bit more complicated than usual for a bossa group, with lots of flowing lines on piano, and a complicated approach to the music that often has the group running through a lot of time changes in a very short span. Includes the tracks "Improviso Negro", "Deus Brasileiro", "Estamos Ai", "Nana", "Reza", "Samba De Verao", and "Voce". (Also issued as a self-titled album, on the Som/Maior label.) CD

✨✧ Milton BananaMilton Banana (1975) ... LP
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Great stuff from this massive Brazilian drummer! Milton's moving his style towards the 70s more on this one – and the record features some nice electric moments with a very dope groove, augmented by Milton's Brazilian jazz madness drumming! Lots of nice cool little cuts, including "Charlie Brown", "Maior E Deus", "Quantas Lagrimas", "Ate Quem Sabe", and "Fato Consumado". LP, Vinyl record album

Beth CarvalhoSerie Raizes Do Samba ... CD
EMI (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
It's singers like Beth Carvalho who keep the samba alive in Brazil – as her lovely voice and fresh style kept the music interesting for a whole new generation of listeners in the 70s. This 20 track set features some of her best work from the early days – all recorded for EMI/Odeon during the late 60s and early 70s. Titles include "Maior E Deus", "1800 Colinas", "Amor Fiel", "Vovo Chica", "Folhas Secas", "Enamorada Da Sambao", "So Queria Ser Feliz", "Gota D'Agua", and "Rio Grande Do Sul Na Festa Do Preto Forro".

Moderna Orquestra De SambaSambalanco ... CD
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
A totally wonderful little combo – and one that features some excellent horn solos with a very jazzy vibe! The groove here is definitely the samba rhythms you'd expect, but there's also a lot of jazz in the mix too – a strong sense of soloing that has some key players stepping out from the larger lineup for extended spots on their own – including a alto saxophonist, a trumpeter, and trombonist – all with a very well-developed sound! The rhythms are great – nice and lively – but its these (unfortunately unnamed) soloists who really make the album great – and give it way more flavor than just a standard Brazilian instrumental set. The group's led by maestro Marku Rupe – and titles include "Sem Bossa", "Tao Bom", "Era Bom", "Caminhando", "O Tempo Nao Desfaz", "A Sandalia Dela", "Doi Doi Doi", and "O Maioral". CD

Amedeo Tommasi/Gerardo IacoucciCarnet Turistico (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Flipper/Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Wonderful sound library grooves from the Italian scene – a record that's super-obscure, but as hip as the best bigger jazz and soundtrack albums of the time! The set has no filler at all – as every track's a sweet little instrumental, often with a groove that takes off from bossa, into some hip fresh territory that's much more 70s overall – mixed with a few numbers that have maybe more of a jazz-based approach! There's lots of organ, piano, and keyboards throughout – with especially great electric touches on the 2/3 of the album that were handled by Gerardo Iacoucci – although the vibe of the three Amadeo Tommasi tracks is pretty great too. The whole thing's at a level that rivals the best sorts of sounds we used to love from the Easy Tempo series – and titles include "Riccione", "Palma De Maiorca", "Cancro", "Sagittario", "Panarea", "Baia D'Argento", "Costa Smeralda", and "Sabbie D'Oro".

✨✧ Trio MocotoTrio Mocoto (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RGE/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Easily the greatest album ever from Trio Mocoto – and one of the key sides of the 70s Samba Soul generation! The group are perhaps best known for their work with Jorge Ben, but they really come into their own on this set – grooving up a mix of funk, samba, and plenty of soul – all delivered with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a varied mix of instrumentation that includes searing Hammond organ, choppy guitar, and nicely blasting horns. Arrangements are by Rogerio Duprat, Waldemiro Lemke, and others – and the album's filled with choppy groovers that still stand as some of the funkiest samba tracks from the time! Titles include "Desapareca", "Maior E Deus", "Samba Da Preguica", "Vem Sa", "Recordar", "Palomares", "Swinga Sambaby", and "Gotas De Chuva Na Minha Cuica". LP, Vinyl record album
