Tamba TrioAvanco ... LP
Philips (Brazil), Mid 60s. Good ... $39.99
A seminal set from one of the greatest bossa combos ever – a group who could boast sharp instrumentation and warm vocal harmonies too! The mix of sounds is completely sublime – jazzy piano trio sounds at the core, topped by soaring harmonies from the members of the trio – a combination the group pioneered with this legendary album – and helped set a whole new standard for the bossa nova generation! Luiz Eca heads up the group on arrangements and piano – with percussion from Helcio Milito, bass and reeds from Bebeto, and just a bit of guest guitar from Durval Ferreira – on killer cuts that include "Batucada", "Sonho De Maria", "Mas Que Nada", "Moca Flor", "O Samba Da Minha Terra", and "Rio". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – plays pretty well overall.)

Aecio Flavio Sexteto/Berimbau Trio/Quinteto SambatExpansao ... LP
Think (Japan), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
An overlooked set of samba jazz from the 60 – one that features three different groups, each with a very hip approach! The bulk of the album features the Aecio Flavio Sextet – a group that has some wonderful vibes and piano, used in ways that echo some of the best Elenco Records styles of the period – with the beautiful balance between darkness and light, given even more depth through some nicely sophisticated solos on both the vibes and some of the reeds in the group! Quinteto Sambatida have a sound that's warmer, and maybe more flowing – and one one of their tracks they feature vocals from Marcio Jose. The album's rounded out by two tracks from Berimbau Trio – maybe a bit more in the familiar bossa piano trio mode, with some of the Tamba-styled harmonies – and lead vocals from Marilton on one track. Titles include "Cancao Do Sol", "Arrasto", "Nuvens", "Terra De Ninguem", "Joyce's Samba", "Waltema", and "Aleluia" by Aecio Flavio Sextet – plus "Tamba" and "Cheganca" by Berimbau Trio – and "Preciso Aprender A Ser So" and "Mensagem" by Quinteto Sambatida.

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

Tamba 4Samba Blim ... CD
CTI/A&M (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

✨✧ Tamba 4We & The Sea ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautiful stuff – and a record we never tire of hearing! This album's a sublime extension of the earlier Brazilian style of the Tamba Trio – in a set that has them adding a fourth member, and picking up some cool new sounds from producer Creed Taylor! The set brings the group's earlier blend of bossa jazz and vocal harmonies into play with Taylor's spacious sensibilities in the early days of CTI – that stretch when the label was partnered with A&M Records, in a mode that also echoes some of the best studio qualities of that imprint too! The songs are longer than usual – nicely stretched out in a beautiful blend of jazz, bossa, and voice – and tracks include a classic reading of Luiz Eca's "The Dolphin", a great take on "Canto De Ossahana", and the tracks "Flower Girl", "We & The Sea", and "Lemanja".

✨✧ Mitchell-Ruff TrioAfter This Message ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most interesting records from the duo of Dwike Mitchell and Willie Ruff – thanks to the addition of the great percussionist Helicio Milito on drums! Helcio worked with the Tamba Trio, and has a very groovy sense of rhythm that works great with the inventive piano of Mitchell and mixture of bass and French horn from Ruff – instrumentation that's somewhere in the same playful spirit as the Ramsey Lewis group with Redd Holt and Eldee Young, but tuned towards very different directions here. Like the Lewis trio, these guys shoe that the piano need not always be the lead instrument – as things round out in very compelling ways over tracks that include "Young Soul", "After This Message", "Chou Chou", "Love", "Improvisation On Solo For Unaccompanied Bass", and "The Prank". LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big Band/Mitchell-Ruff DuoJazz Is Universal/After This Message ... CD
Collectables, 1962/1966. Used ... $2.99
One of the killer early albums by the CBBB is paired with a nutty one by the Mitchell-Ruff Duo! Jazz Is Universal is one of the best pre-MPS sides by the Clarke-Boland outfit, and it features a slightly more stripped down version of the group than you'll hear on later records. The swing's still nicely in place, though – and the record features the usual great mix of European and American soloists, like Sahib Shihab, Carl Drewo, Zoot Sims, Jimmy Deuchar, and Benny Bailey. Titles include "Volutes", "The Styx", "Los Bravos", and "Box 703" – all from the highly imaginative pen of Francy Boland! And speaking of imaginative, the strange combo of Dwike Mitchell, pianist, and Willie Ruff, bass & French horn, is joined by Brazilian drummer Helcio Milito (of the Tamba Trio) in this lively set of soulful instrumentals that mix up virtuosity and humor, in a way that's similar to some of the jazzier work by the Young Holt Trio. Titles on that set include "The Prank", "Chou Chou", "Young Soul", and "Improvisation On Solo For Unaccompanied Bass". 15 cuts in all, with over 70 minutes of music – and in a nice package, too! CD

Igor EcaEm Casa Com Luiz Eca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
Igor Eca pays tribute to his father – Luiz Eca, one of our favorite Brazilian arrangers of all time! Most folks know Luiz as the pianist and guiding force behind the Tamba Trio – but he's also got a legacy of songwriting, instrumentation, and musical creation that go beyond his recordings with that group – beautifully revived here by the younger Eca on bass, with help from an all-star lineup that includes Toninho Horta on guitar and vocals, Mauro Senise on flute and soprano sax, Itamar Assiere on piano, and Edu Lobo on vocals! Most titles are remakes of key compositions by Luiz Eca – and the style of the album is wonderful – like some of Eca's best work in the post-Tamba years. Titles include "Dolphin", "Imagem", "Alegria De Viver", "Tamba", "Buzios", "Mestre Bimba", and "Reencontro". CD

✨✧ Hi-Lo'sBest Of The Hi-Lo's – Nice Work If You Can Get It ... CD
Varese, 1950s/1996. Used ... $4.99
Before Free Design, before the Tamba Trio, before the Beach Boys, before the Four Freshmen, the Hi-Los were cooking up the jazzy harmony style that would influence generations of singers. Led by Gene Puerling, who would later go onto form the spooky Singers Unlimited, the youthful Hi-Los had a sound and a style that was nothing short of incredible. Their harmonies were amazing, and they brought a jazzy style to the vocal group scene that blew away all of the hokier groups, like The Four Aces, and other groups of that ilk. This comp's got 18 tracks from the albums The Hi-Lo's I Presume, The Hi-Lo's On Hand, The Hi-Lo's, and The Hi-Lo's Under Glass – with titles like "Skylark", "Lulu's Back In Town", "Too Young For The Blues", and "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

Antonio Carlos Jobim & OthersTom Masculino – Eles Cantam Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
The music of Antonio Carlos Jobim opened up huge new territory for male singers in Brazil during the 60s – a way of being personal and emotive, but without any of the overdone modes of the generation before – nor some of the false bravado that was usually mixed in with the presentation of the lyrics! Instead, Jobim allowed a stripped-down, warmly poetic approach that opened up huge new territory for singers in the bossa generation and beyond – as you'll hear in this very cool collection of classic work that begins during the initial time of Jobim's first compositions, and runs through the 60s and 70s to show an array of artists who were really helping to transform his music. Titles include "Ligia" by Chico Buarque, "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar" by Caetano Veloso, "So Danco Samba" by Joao Donato, "Tema De Amor De Gabriela" by Ney Matogrosso, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Baden Powell & Jimmy Pratt, "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce" by Pedro Mariano, "Olha Maria" by Emilio Santiago, "Agua De Beber" by Tamba Trio, "Dindi" by Lucio Alves, and "Ana Luiza" by MPB4.

Quarteto SambacanaMuito Pra Frente ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $11.99
Soaring harmonies from this cool 60s Brazilian group – a real lost gem that's in the best Brazilian harmony tradition of the time! The set is similar to work by Os Cariocas, Tamba Trio, and other groups of that nature – soaring vocals over bossa rhythms – but it's also got an approach that goes past the standard approach, into styles that are quite complicated, both vocally and instrumentally – delivered here with a touch that's light, but which also has a nice degree of sadness. Titles include "Aladim", "Tom Da Cancao", "Ate Voce Voltar", "Eu E Voce", "O Navio E Voce", "Tarde Azul", "Mesmo Ceu", "Sem Me Olhar", and "Fui Olhar Pra Voce". CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the bossa flavor promised in the title – kind of a post-bossa version of the bossa jazz trio style of the 60s – a bit like the records that Tamba Trio and Milton Banana were cutting in the 70s, but maybe even better overall! The percussionists are all great – the album features five of them, all Brazilian – and they work alongside bassist Toni Botero and drummer Elis Siabo. Titles include "Samba Medley", "Mood Island", "UFO", "Midnight Sun Never Set", and "Diane". CD

✨✧ Joao Gilberto & OthersJoao Gilberto & The Stylists Of The Bossa Sing Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the earliest years of bossa nova – a big 59 track package that brings together important early recordings by Joao Gilberto, as well as some other key bossa interpreters of his generation too! The set begins with Joao's early recordings of compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim – the artist/composer whose influence is a huge part of this package, too – as many of the songs here were penned by Jobim, and the set also features a few of his recordings, too – as well as both Brazilian and American interpretations of many bossa classics from the start of the 60s! The 2CD set is overflowing with interesting material – the kind of well-chosen cuts that always make the El Records selections so great – and titles include "O Nosso Amor" and "Este Seu Olhar" by Joao Gilberto, "Por Causa De Voce" by Lucio Alves, "As Praias Desertas" by Lenita Bruno, "Eurydice" by Luiz Bonfa, "Sucedeu Assim"b y Sylvia Telles, "Arpoador" by Radames Gnattali, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Tamba Trio, "Estrada Do Sol" by Agostinho Dos Santos, "Eu Preciso De Voce" by Norma Benguell, "Desafinado" by Laurindo Almeida, "Chega De Saudade" by Elizeth Cardoso, "Amor Sem Adeus" by Dick Farney, "No More Blues" by Jon Hendricks, "Sem Voice" by Alaide Costa, "O Amor Em Paz" by Os Caroicas, "O Homem" by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius De Moraes, "Eu Nao Existo Sem Voce" by Lucio Alves and Sylvia Telles, and "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Leny Adrade.

✨✧ VariousLuiz Eca – Reencontro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A loving tribute to one of the greatest pianists and keyboards in Brazil – the mighty Luiz Eca, known best for his work in the Tamba Trio, and for the wealth of styles and compositions he graced upon the post-bossa scene! The format is ambitious, as many tracks are arranged with fuller backings – and arrangements on the set include those by Eca himself, plus work by Nelson Angelo, Wagner Tiso, Francis Him, Gilson Peranzzetta, and Jacques Morelenbaum. Performers include Joao Donato, Sivuca, and Wanda Sa – and titles include "Tema De Anita", "Tamba", "Dolphin", "Alegria De Viver", "Melancolia", and "Quietly". CD
