Joao Mello with Tamba TrioA Bossa Do Balanco (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1963. Used ... $11.99
An overlooked singer from 60s Brazil – working here with some great bossa backings from the Tamba Trio! The trio usually sing on their own early records, but they step aside on the vocal tip, and let Joao handle all the lyrics on the set – while they provide their own great instrumentation arranged by Luiz Eca, who's got a way of mixing melancholy moods with subtle bossa grooves! Joao Mello plays a bit of guitar alongside his vocals, and the record also features this haunting flute work from bassist Bebeto – whose lines really complete the moody feel of the record. Titles include "Jogado For a", "Um Sonho Para Dois", "Gostoso E Sambar", "Voce Vai", "Faz De Conta", "O Maior Nao", and "Amor E Paz". CD

✨✧ Elis ReginaSamba Eu Canto Assim ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever by this legendary bossa singer! Even at this young age, Elis Regina diplays a talent for interpretation and an emotional power that few other Brazilian vocalists could match – a way of putting over a tune that brought a whole new level of sophistication to Brazilian music in the 60s! On the set, Elis manages to give the songs a great deal of life, without smothering them in the heavier over-emotional style used by other Brazilian singers at the time – and works with light, lively, jazzy backings that are totally great. The result is a crackling batch of samba and bossa tracks that shines with warmth and imagination. The set includes a lot of tracks by Edu Lobo, and titles include "Sou Sem Paz", "Reza", "Por Um Amor Maior", "Joao Valentao", "Aleluia", "Ultimo Canto", and "Preciso Aprender A Ser So".
