Jair RodriguesAlma Negra ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2005. Used ... $6.99
Jair Rodriguez is alive and well – sounding better than we might have ever expected in recent years, and working here in a setting that recalls the glory days of his earlier work. The album's got a straight forward approach that's classic samba all the way through, and which allows more than enough space for the soulfulness of Bruno's vocal approach to shine through. Arrangements are by Marcelo Maita and Paulinho Daflin, and instrumentation on most numbers is small combo and acoustic. Titles include "Adeus Tristeza", "Esquina Do Brasil", "Terra Seca", "Alma Negra", "Vagabundo Trabalhador", "Aniversario Do Planeta", "Prorrogacao", and "Fogo Na Venta". CD

Tom ZeEstudando O Pagode – Na Opereta Segregamulher E Amor ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2005. Used ... $4.99
A mighty new effort from the amazing Tom Ze – a wild, heaving stylistic sprawl that's as dense and wonderful as his other recent efforts for Trama – but far more ambitious than anything he's done in many years! If you know anything about Tom Ze, you know that the man's aural art is quite difficult to describe, from the post-Tropicalia heyday to today! This set is a 16 song operatic suite that seems to be a stylistic sibling to his great (and quite rare) Estudando O Samba album from the mid 70s. Tom is taking on Greek mythology and age-old issues of gender oppression here – on an album produced with a sly, sinister groove by Jair Olivera. Incredible stuff – with all of the jerky, pulsating avant funk and leftfield grooves of Tom Ze at his recent best! The tracks are divided into 3 sections (Primero Ato, Segundo Ato and Terciero Ato) and include "Ave Dor Maria", "Estupido Rapaz", "O Amor E Um Rock", "Elaeu", "Para La Do Para", "Prazer Carnal", "Teatro (Dom Quixote)", "A Volta Do Trem Das Onze" and more!

✨✧ BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Tim DogSucker's Never Play/It's My Time – TR Love's Ultra 7 Series (previously unreleased – limited edition colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Black Pegasus, 1990. New Copy (pic cover)... $24.99
A couple masterful, never released dawn of the 90s Tim Dog tracks – produced by Ced-Gee & TR Love – taken from TR Love's own Ultramagnetic archives! "Sucker's Never Play" is a furiously funky cut that rolls at fast clip, and with inventive, breathless rhymes by Tim. Classic level! "It's My Time" on the flip is just as great, with a slightly more measured approach, but it's ulitimately just as tough. An obscure demo that's as supremely strong as the officially released cuts back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Orange vinyl – and limited to just 300 copies!)

✨✧ Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
