✨✧ Lo BorgesBhanda ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2007. Used ... $24.99
A gem of a record from Lo Borges – still one of the best Brazilian songwriters ever, with talents that are alive and well more than 30 years after his classic debut and famous 70s recordings with Milton Nascimento! As with other of Borges' recent albums, the style here is almost a distillation of the approach from older years – a slight simplification and refocused version of his loftier music ideas, but still with an undeniable depth. Borges sings, and plays piano and guitar at the head of the tight group on the record – and titles include "O Tempo E Esse", "Universo Paralelo", "Gira", "Segundas Moanas Intencoes", "Nossa Magica", "Carnival De Cor", "Trem Das Coisas", and "O Som Das Estrelas".

OttoChangez Tout – Samba Pra Burro Dissecado (box version) ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2000. Used 2CD ... $9.99
One of Brazil's most groundbreaking artists is back again – with a cool 2CD set that reworks his famous Samba Pra Burro album! The set's a blinding mix of beats and electronics, with a sound that's as fresh as Otto's original album – and although we have to admit that most of the producers and remixers are Brazilians that we've never heard before, that's what makes the album stand out from the ever-growing pack of other remix project on the market. In many ways, the whole thing pushes Otto's mixed up musical version even further than before – as these producers are free to take some real chances with the original ideas, pulling out some of the most interesting elements of the tracks and turning them into whole new tunes. Packaged in a lovely box set, with 2 slim CD cases and a full color booklet – and featuring 29 tracks in all! Remixers include Friendtronik, Nude, Muchacho Alves, Ram Science, Edu K, Apollo 9, Autolord, and Edgard – and titles include "O Celular De nana", 'Bob", "Distraida Pra Morte", "TV A Cabo", "Renault/Peugeot", "Low", "Cafe Preto", and "Changez Tout". CD
(Out of print. Limited edition to 5000 copies – and numbered too!)

OttoSem Gravidade ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2003. Used ... $9.99
Another stunner from Otto – one of the most exciting Brazilian artists working today! The album's actually got a style that's more song-structured and tuneful than some of his other albums – moving a bit more towards straighter rock, but still with enough of the enigmatic production and quirky electronics that have always made his albums such a treat. The rhythms and instrumentation are enough to carry the album alone, but even better is Otto's wonderful voice – instantly captivating despite any language barriers, and getting better with age, in a style that reminds us of the vocal growth experience by Cateno Veloso as the 70s progressed. Titles include "Lavanda", "Nebulosas", "Amarelo Manga", "Amargosa", "Dedo De Deus", "Pra Quem Ta Quente", and "Tento Entender". CD

Gal CostaAo Vivo ... CD
Trama (Brazil), 2006. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 ... $8.99 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

Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
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

✨✧ 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)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!)
