Gal CostaAo Vivo ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $11.99
A great little live album from Gal Costa – recorded as part of a concert performance for her Hoje (Today) album, but featuring a fair bit of other work as well! The style here is similar to Hoje – small group instrumentation, relatively spontaneous, with a good undercurrent of jazz – all of which really helps Gal break from some of the stiffer modes of her later years, and hit a warmly wonderful style that's filled with life and joy! The group on stage is relatively small, and the nature of the recording keeps things somewhat intimate – and Gal's vocals are very firmly in the lead throughout. Titles include "Antonico", "Jurei", "Hoje", "Luto", "Juventude Transvida", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Coisa Mais Linda/As Time Goes By", "Mar E Sol/Aguas De Marco", and "Santana". CD

BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late! Vocals are by a shifting lineup of singers, but there's a core sound that always holds fast – thanks to creative production from Pedro Coquenao, who mixes favela-styled elements with a more thoughtful, intellectual approach that almost reminds us of the late Trama Records at their best. Things are nicely skittish overall – and titles include "Luxo", "Bantu", "Cooking Ugali", "Fica Atento", "La Vai Maria", "Chat With Mr Ochieng", and "Ceu". CD

✨✧ VariousIdee Life – Soundscape Of Brazilian Awakening ... CD
KSR (Japan), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set – one that takes its "Brazilian Awakening" very seriously! The package documents some of the best work coming out of Brazil in recent years – particularly the warm and soulful work of the Trama Records scene, but also including work from a few other sources as well. There's a warm glow to the whole set that really unites the tunes – partly informed by the classic bossa styles of the 60s, but also filled with a rich array of rhythmic experimentation, and held together by strongly soulful lead vocals on most tracks. Titles include "Calados" by Luciana Mello, "M'Bala" by Lucas Santtana, "Amadura" by Otto, "Uma Copacabana" by Levy, "Deus Da O Dom" by Guga Stroeter, "Metro" by Achei Bonito, "E O Meu Amor Vi Passar" by Patricia Marx, "Noites Viradas" by Renata Gebara, and "Me Conta" by Danilo Moraes.

Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. Used ... $11.99
A very unique album from Hank Mobley – one that has him working alongside Milt Jackson, in an unusual format that mixes the soulful Mobley tenor with some well-crafted work on vibes! The "all star" title is certainly appropriate here – as Mobley and Jackson are joined in a quintet by Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – almost bringing in an early Jazz Messengers sensibility to the record, but also hitting more of a looser, laidback blowing session approach. There's less of the tightness of other Mobley sessions from the time, and the record has the players really feeling each other out in the studio – with the sort of spontaneity you might hear in a Prestige or Savoy album from the time. Tracks are long, and titles include "Ultramarine", "Don't Walk", "Lower Stratosphere", and "Mobley's Musings". CD

Ultramagnetic MCsFunk Your Head Up ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99
Follow up to Critical Beatdown with solid, funky production by Ced Gee and Moe Love, and Kool Keith just being Kool Keith – giving it some crazy charm that a lot people just weren't ready for at the time! Their first major label record, which seemed to take forever to come out, we recall a lot of folks being disappointed with this at the time – but there's ultimately a lot of quality cuts here! "Poppa Large", "Chorus Line Pt. 2", "Make It Happen" were favorite cuts from the outset, and with the benefit of hindsight and without burden of expections, other great ones include "Funk Radio", "Stop Jockin Me", "Bust The Facts" and "I Like Your Style" with many other standout moments. It's got a whopping 23 in all, and other tracks include "MC Champion", "Go For Yourz", "Message From The Boss", "Pluckin Cards", "You Ain't Real", "Moe Love On The ! & 2" and "Porno Star". CD

✨✧ T La RockLyrical King ... LP
Fresh, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic from the mid 80s from T La Rock! T is still best known for his dynamite Rick Rubin-produced single "It's Yours", but he brought some a lot great stuff to this full length form a couple years later – in a style that clearly influenced cats from the Ultramags, to Kool G Rap and many more! He sports the brainy lyricism that still rocks a party and that incredible period production aesthetic. Co-produced by Mantronik, with scratches by Louie Lou, beat box by Greg Nice, and appearances by Special K and MC Serch. 10 tracks in all, including "Lyrical King", "Back To Burn", "Three Minutes Of Beat Box", "Bust These Lyrics", "This Beat kicks", "Big Beat In London" and "It's Time To Chill". LP, Vinyl record album
