Luiz MelodiaMico De Circo ... CD
RGE/Trama (Brazil), 1978. Used ... $7.99
A great little 70s album from Luiz Melodia – one that's got a really wonderful samba soul sort of sound! The style here is a bit more polished than some of Melodia's contemporaries at the time – with bits of warmer electric instrumentation that remind us a bit of some of the late 70s work of Emilio Santiago, and some great jazzier touches that help some of the best tracks soar with a really fusion-oriented sort of vibe! Luiz's vocals are upfront, and have a nicely personal quality – so the added instrumentation doesn't make the album come across as too slick or commercial – and the jazzier touches really help set it apart from some of his other work, with even a bit of a funky vibe on a few numbers too. Arrangements are by Joao Donato, Marcio Montarroyos, and others – and titles include "A Voz Do Morro", "Mulato Latino", "O Morro Nao Engana", "Giros De Sonho", "Fadas", and "Solando No Tempo". CD

VariousUrban Brazil ... CD
Sterns/Earthworks, 2003. Used ... $9.99
A selection of contemporary grooves from Brazil – heavy-grooving numbers with a sound that's a lot more urban than classic bossa and samba, yet which also do a strong job of mixing in some traditional elements that still strongly have a South American flavor! A number of the artists on the set are part of the groundbreaking cadre of artists on the Trama label, and others are from more disparate sources, but paired up nicely for a really unified groove! Titles include "Coco Nutz Mass" by Botecoletro, "Cuba" by Otto, "Roda Rodete Rodiano (Zambo mix)" by Chico Science & Bio, "Catimbo (rmix)" by Dj Dolores, "Funquiada" by Drumagick, "Bebete Vaobora" by Wilson Simoninha, "Nervosa" by Funk Como Le Gusta, "2736 km" by Mamelo Sound System, and "Piraquara" by Joao Parahyba.

✨✧ Hank MobleyHank Mobley & His All Stars ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ 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)... 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!)
