VariousTrip Do Brasil Vol 2 – Still Mixing Brazilian Vibes With Electronic Beatz ... CD
Small (France), 2001. Used ... $7.99
The Brazilian vibe continues to spread worldwide, as a host of French and European producers go to town on a great set of tracks tinged with the sound of Brazil! This one's a lot more open-ended than some of the other sets on the market with a similar approach, in that the tracks don't necessarily focus on the dancefloor, so much as they expand the groove for a wider variety of experiences. Of course, there's still more than a few toe-tappers on the set – very much in the best style of work on Compost in a similar vein. Titles include "" by Isolee, "Non Fatiguing Natural Silk" by WR, "Ibis Vermelho" by Rom, "My Little Brazilian Pony" by Dr Rockit, "Tridade" by Alex Kid feat Jerome Badini, "Jelba" by Russ Gabriel, "Obrigado" by The Deal, "Bahia Blues" by DJ Spinna, "Tiu Ba La Quieba" by Boyz From Brazil, and "Kotu Rete" by Mental Remedy.

✨✧ Beaver Harris & The 360 Degree Music ExperienceFrom Rag Time To No Time ... LP
360 Degrees, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hardly any ragtime here – despite the title – and instead, the album's one of the greatest ever from drummer Beaver Harris – cut with his ultra-hip 360 Degree Music Experience group! The title is somewhat accurate in that the record brings together a long history of jazz-based expression – almost a century's worth of music, served up by Harris and the group members with the same fluid sensibility as Jaki Byard in his best work, although Byard was never this ambitious! The ensemble is somewhat large, but really comes together well – with an impressive range of artists who include Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Marshall Brown on trombone, Dave Burrell on piano, Keith Marks on flute, Cecil McBee and Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Maxine Sullivan and Bill Willingham on vocals. The album's sort of a mini-history of jazz, but one that's hardly hokey at all – and which usually veers towards Harris' more righteous modes of the 70s, even when hitting older styles. Sullivan is especially great – singing here as a sophisticated soul jazz diva of the 70s, and hardly the older-styled singer we might expect. A few moments are stripped down and percussive – and other odd instrumentation includes a bit of sitar and steel drums. Titles include "It's Hard To But We Do", "I Wish I Knew", "Can There Be Peace?", "Down In Brazil", "African Drums", and "Round Trip". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

Chico Buarque & OthersChico – Artista Brasileiro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful performance that pays tribute to the legendary Chico Buarque – and one that features performances from the man himself, plus great guest artists – all in a stripped-down setting with a very personal vibe! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – often just a bit of piano, acoustic guitar, and maybe a bit of cello or percussion – used to shade in the tunes alongside the vocals, which are very firmly in the lead – on a range of tunes penned by Buarque, which fit perfectly in this intimate setting. Chico himself sings "Sinha" and "Paratodos", and other tracks include "Sabia" by Carminho, "As Vitrines" by Ney Matogrosso, "Mambembe" by Moyseis Marques, "Mar E Lua" by Monica Salmaso, "Estacao Derraderia" by Pericles, and "Sobre Todas As Coisas" by Carimho & Milton Nasimento.

✨✧ Rosinha De ValencaRosinha De Valenca (1973) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $18.99
Acoustic guitar and bossa rhythms – but a session that's recorded with a very different groove than any of Rosinha's work in the 60s! The style here is a bit more fluid and open than before – almost bringing in some of the trippier styles from Rosinha's contemporaries over at the bigger labels, but stripping them down into a simpler instrumental mode that mostly involves tight guitar work and light percussion. There's a sound here that almost recalls Baden Powell's grooviest work from the time – particularly his upbeat MPS recordings – but Rosinha's combo also has a bit of piano too, which focuses the overall sound of the tunes and gives them a lot more drive! Titles include "After Sunrise", "Bala Com Bala", "Valsa De Euridice", "Caboclo Ubiratan", "Cuica", "Asa Branca", and "Morena Do Mar". CD

Joao Donato/Eumir DeodatoDonato-Deodato ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The legendary meeting of the two biggest Brazilian keyboard talents of the 70s – Joao Donato and Eumir Deodato – coming together in beautifully funky formation! The sound is a great blend of the moody electric work of Donato's classic Quem E Quem album, and some of the fuller, funkier grooves on Deodato's work for CTI – served up here in a double-keyboard blend with help from a host of great guest musicians! Other players include Randy Brecker on trumpet, Romeo Penque on flute, Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica, and Michael Gibson on guitar – plus plenty of percussion from Airto and Ray Barretto, who both join in to round out this all star session. Tracks are nicely long, and very jamming at times – and titles include the funky "Whistle Stop", plus "Where's JD", "Capricorn", "Nightripper", and "Batuque". LP, Vinyl record album

Glue TripGlue Trip (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Production Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
A very cool Brazilian duo – working here with a sound that's nicely tripped-out, but which also has acoustic elements that take us back to Brazilian styles of the 70s too! Acoustic guitar figures strongly on many tracks – right up front in the mix, as on a Jorge Ben record – but often set to more contemporary rhythm and production modes, with keyboards or gentle beats stepping in the background, as raspy, rootsy lyrics match the acoustic vibe upfront! Some moments are sweet, some are a bit moodier – but the whole thing is never overdone, nor just a head-noddy blend of familiar elements – definitely something fresh and new, with a great voice of its own. Titles include "La Edad Del Futuro", "Birds Singing Lies", "Elbow Pain", "A New Place To Start", "Old Blood", and "Lucid Dream". CD

✨✧ Joyce with Joao DonatoTudo Bonito ... CD
Rip Curl/Sony (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $6.99
A wonderful album from the lovely Joyce – one of her best of recent years! The record features Joyce working with bossa maestro Joao Donato – who plays acoustic and electric piano, sings, and helps Joyce with some of the arrangements – and the overall style of the album is very much in the vein of some of his most beautiful work. The set was with contributions from Brazilian jazz players like Paulo Moura, Gilson Peranzzetta, and Tutty Moreno – and Joyce is in fantastic form, singing and playing acoustic guitar with all the soulful passion of her best early recordings. The production is great, too – and the album has a rawer edge than some of Joyce's other work from the 90s – nicely stripped-down, with a rasp in both her vocals and the work of the other jazz players. Titles include "Bananeira", "Anos 30", "Drume Negrita", "Tudo Bonito", "Gala Tanta", "Falta De Ar", "Adolescensia", and "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce". CD

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1970) ... CD
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul – as Tim brings in some rootsier elements from local musical styles, and even some of the trippier elements that were running through Brazilian music in the wake of Tropicalia – all to make for this heady brew of sounds that's completely unique, and completely wonderful all the way through! There's plenty of tracks here that would fit well alongside both familiar soul, and the modes of funky artists like Marcos Valle at the time – and the set also features work on guitar and backup vocals by Cassiano, who'd soon go onto become a Brazilian soul star on his own. Titles include the break-heavy "Padre Cicero" and "Voce Fingiu" – plus "Tributo A Booker Pittman", "Cristina No 2", "Jurema", "Flamengo", "Corone Antonio Bento", and "Primavera". CD

Milton Nascimento & Dudu Lima TrioTamarear ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the greatest settings in years for legendary Brazilian singer Milton Nascimento – a record that has the giant working with just a jazz trio for backing – led by bassist Dudu Lima, and with a sound that really takes Milton back to his roots! Nascimento's always had a very special style, but some albums of the past decade or two don't always bring it to the forefront – yet here, with just a piano, bass, and drums for accompaniment, Milton hits the kinds of soulful strides he initially made in the company of keyboardist Wagner Tiso on his 70s classics – this kind of spacious, almost heavenly mode that's filled with soul. The musicians move between acoustic and electric elements, but the sound is pretty stripped-down throughout – although guitarist Stanley Jordan joins the set on two numbers. The group really change up some Nascimento classics, too – and titles include "Clube Da Esquinha No 2", "Gran Circo", "Som Do Ceu/Nada Sera Como Antes", "Tamerar", "Belafante", "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", and "Nascimento/Travessia".

Os CanibaisOs Canibais ... CD
Rozenblit/Mr Bongo (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A weird and wild little record from Os Canibais – at first glance, a familiar rockish set from late 60s Brazil – but upon deeper listening, a nicely tripped-out album in all the right places! Os Canibais have a touch of the Jovem Guarda groove – that Brazilian style of copping bits of Anglo rock from up north – but like some of the hippest South American acts at the time, they find ways of making the familiar sound very odd – weird little twists and turns on guitar, organ, and even production – already great on their covers of familiar tunes – but even wilder on their own numbers, which definitely have a psych quality right away – especially on the organ, which is really moody and dark! Titles include "Nosso Romance", "Se Voce Quer", "A Praca", "Ao Meu Amor", "Lindo Sonho", and "O Prego". CD

Os MutantesHaih Ou Amortecedor ... CD
Anti, 2009. Used ... $5.99
The long awaited return of Brazilian iconoclasts Os Mutantes – featuring original Mutante Sergio Dias and a great new band – plus songwriting contributions from Tom Ze and Jorge Ben – a forward looking endeavor, not at all a nostalgia trip! It's been around 30 years since the previous Os Mutantes album, and the never predictable Dias sounds as fresh and energized as we hoped he'd be – with bright, catchy-as-hell melodies, wildly playful carnivalesque sounds as well as more rootsy acoustic bits, on songs that fearlessly blend genres and influences. It's hard to imagine that we'll ever love records from Mutantes, or anyone else in any genre, as much as we love the late 60s stuff – but this is excellent, and among the better Mutantes records since the Rita Lee era. Dias sings and plays electric & acoustic guitars, Egyptian oud, organ, percussion, harmonica and handles the string arrangements, and fellow Mutantes this time out include percussion, drums & vocals by Dinho Leme and Bia Mendes, vocals, piano & keys by Henrique Peters and Fabio Recco, percussion & sound design by Simone Sou, bass, flute, strings and string arrangements and more by Citor Trida. Titles include "Hymns Of The World (Intro)", "Querida Qierida", "Teclar", "2000 E Agarrum", "Baghdad Blues", "O Careca", "O Mensageiro", "Anagrama" featuring Tom Ze, "Aamba Do Fidel", "Nada Mudou", "Gopala Krishna Om", "Hymns Of The World (Final)" and more.

The set features material from the shows Atlantida (1973), Um Dia Antes Da Vida (1976), Tres Aboios Diferentes (1974), and Coletiva De Musica Paraibana (1976) – plus one more track from a 1977 show – all with Ze Ramalho on vocals and guitar, working in relatively stripped-down settings with deeply personal inflections! The collection's a great contrast to some of his more produced studio albums – and titles include "O Monte Olimpia", "Avohai", "A Arvore", "Puxa Puxa", "Brejo Do Cruz", "Jacarepagua Blues", "Taxi Lunar", and "Aboio Eletronico".

Bud ShankBossa Nova Years ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Seminal work from the man credited with the invention of bossa nova! Way back in the early 50s, Bud Shank cut some albums for Pacific Jazz in LA with guitarist Laurindo Almeida. These records mixed together Shank's flute and sax with lively guitar stylings by Almeida – and in many accounts, the recordings are quoted as being a seminal influence on the bossa scene in late 50s Brazil. No surprise, then, that when bossa broke in the US, Pacific Jazz took Shank back in the studio to cut more side in the same style – which is what you'll get on this excellent 2CD set! The work here ranges from 1962 to 1965 – and it features Shank playing in a number of groups: one with Clare Fisher piano, Larry Bunker vibes, and Milt Holland percussion; one with Fisher on piano and organ, Bunker on vibes, and Joe Pass on guitar; one with Joao Donato on piano and Rosinha De Valenca on guitar; and one with De Valenca on guitar and Sergio Mendes on piano. The 2CD set features 28 tracks in all – all pure stripped-down bossa jazz at its finest. Shank's a hell of a reed player – and the format gives him one of the best platforms to blow of his career. Titles include "Sambou Sambou", "Elizete", "Um Abraco No Bonfa", "Gostoso", "Joao", "Serenidade", "Silk Stop", "Sausalito", "Illusao", "Caminho De Casa", "Otem A Note", "Wistful Samba", "O Barquinho", and "Samba Guapo".

VariousElenco Records Box Set (Vinicius & Odette Lara/Nara 1964/Caymmi Visita Tom/Bossa Nova York/Vinicius & Caymmi No Zum Zum) (5LP set) ... LP
Elenco/Polysom (Brazil), Mid 60s. New Copy 5LPs ... $175.99
Amazing bossa nova from 60s Brazil – a limited box set that features five classic albums from the Elenco Records label, pressed up on very high quality vinyl! Album #1 – the Vinicius & Odette Lara album from 1963 – a dream of a bossa session! The lovely Odette Lara sings vocals – and the music was written by Baden Powell and Vinicius De Morais, with arrangements by the great Moacir Santos. The sound is perfect Elenco bossa – with lightly lilting orchestrations that still have a lot of soul, and perfectly produced vocals drifting over the top. Titles include "Astronauta", "Berimbau", "Seja Feliz", "Samba Preludio", and "Alem Do Amor". Album #2 – Nara Leao 1964 – Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich with feeling, without sounding too overwrought or overemotional – in sharp contrast to the style of Brazilian divas from a few years before. Includes a wonderful version of Santos' "Nana", plus the tracks "Cancao Da Terra", "Consolacao", "Maria Moita", and "Berimbau". Album #3 – Caymmi Visita Tom – A landmark meeting of two Brazilian generations! The older singer/songwriter Dorival Caymmi meets up with Tom Jobim in this moody session of stripped-down tracks recorded in the famous Elenco style – and the result is a classic album that spans two generations of Brazilian music. Dorival brought along children Nana, Danilo, and Dori Caymmi to the session, and the backing includes percussion by Edison Machando – an guitar by Dori, and flute by Danilo. Tracks include "Sem Voce", "Berimbau", "Tristeza De Nos Dois", "Vae De Vez", and "Das Rosas". Album #4 – Bossa Nova York – A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set of jazz than you might expect – with Sergio grooving hard on piano, and throwing in some light bossa touches to tracks that include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". Album #5 – Vinicius & Caymmi No Zum Zum – An amazingly beautiful album, recorded by Vinicius De Moraes, Dorival Caymmi, Oscar Castro-Neves, and The Quarteto Em Cy for some sort of a special show. Castro-Neves provides some excellent bossa backing, the Quarteto girls sing chorus and over the top, Vinicius does some recitations, and Caymmi sings lead vocals. If the whole thing sound's a bit heavy-handed, it's not – and instead is an amazing batch of heavenly bossa-tinged tracks, with all the intelligence and imagination of the best titles on the Elenco label. The whole thing's extremely lively, and has an other-worldly sound that matches Vinicius' classic Afro Sambas LP with Baden Powell. Tracks include "Bom Dia Amigo", "Berimbau", "Historia De Pescadores", "Formosa", "Broto Maroto", and "Aruanda". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz with Joao GilbertoBest Of Two Worlds ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
A wonderful return ot the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the initial bossa years – and Stan's tenor sounds great in the setting, with those loose yet heartfelt lines we love so much from this period! Joao's great too – somehow even more "present" on the record than before, with that amazing ability to do so much with so little – as on some of his own great 70s recordings. Miucha contributes some English language vocals to the record alongside Joao's Portuguese ones, and Oscar Castro Neves handled the arrangements with a nicely stripped-down style that has plenty of focus on the percussion and rhythms. Titles include a sublime English language version of "Aqua De Marco (Waters Of March)", plus the tracks "Double Rainbow", "Falsa Bahiana", "Ligia", "Izaura", "Eu Vim Da Bahia", and "E Preciso Perdoar".

Catherine Ribeiro & AlpesPaix ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of those key records that shows the really unique side of the French scene at the start of the 70s – an underground world that was a bit hippie, certainly trippy, and very open to other ideas too – wrapped up in a sound that was both cosmic and intellectual at the same time! Catherine Ribeiro sings here with the group Alpes – a combo who might be more prog in another setting, but who get a more sensitive sound and style from Ribeiro's vocals – while still allowing themselves to take off on flights of fancy when they want – sounding especially cool on their use of "cosmophone" and "percuphone"! The groove moves between long electric solos and more dramatic vocal moments from Catherine – and titles include the side-long "Un Jour La Mort" – plus "Roc Alpin", "Paix", and "Jusqu'A Ce Que La Force De T'Aimer Me Manque LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gal CostaGal (1969) ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from 1969, but also features some even heavier and more tripped out guitar – in a way that really pushes the psychedelic aspect of the work! The sound here is really amazing – very fuzzy and freaky at times, in ways that make the album one of the most rocking sets of the entire Tropicalia scene, but in ways that still hang onto the quirky experimental qualities of work by Os Mutantes or Caetano Veloso. Gal's vocals really rip out amazingly at times – light years away from the sweet sound of the late 70s, and more in the frenetic, urgent style you'd expect from the politically-charged scene that spawned the set. Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil join Gal on a great version of "Pais Tropical", Jards Macale guest stars on the classic "Empty Boat" – and other tracks include "Tuareg", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Pulsars E Quasars", and "Cultura E Civilizaco".

The start of a legend – and the very first album by Sergio Mendes' Brasil 66 group, proudly brought to the world through the godlike talents of a young Herb Alpert! Sergio was no stranger to the recording studio by the time of this set, but the record marked a real shift in his music – a change from the mostly-instrumental bossa modes he first forged back in Brazil, and a shift to warmer, sweeter pop with a nice sunny California finish – done through unique production techniques and the group's trademark two-lady lead vocals! The sound is tremendous, and is possibly heard in its purest form here – simple, focused, and given that near-perfect A&M sound through Herb's production skills. Titles include the classics "Daytripper", "Aqua De Beber", "O Pato", "Berimbau", "Mas Que Nada", and "The Joker". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare work from Novos Baianos – one of the hippest Brazilian groups of the post-Tropicalia years, heard here in a selection of tracks from the start of their career! The material is from the group's first record ever, originally a 7" EP – and the four track set is relatively short, but totally great all the way through – with material from 1970 that has the group embracing a trippier style of presentation that's almost in modes similar to territory Os Mutantes or Caetano Veloso were hitting at the time – sophisticated, slightly psychecelic, and very powerful overall! Two tracks feature vocals from Morais Moreira and two more feature Paulinho Boca De Cantor – on titles that include "Psiu", "29 Beijos", "Globo Da Morte", and "Mini Planeta Iris". As we say, the whole thing is relatively short – but it's a much-needed addition to the other CDs of their music from these key years! CD

QDK, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy heavy stuff from the wild days of the Brazilian music scene – 19 tracks that put the psyche into psychedelica, and which show that in many ways, the Brazilian approach was even more mindblowing than American and British music at the time! Back in the late 60s, even easy listening in Brazil was pretty tripped-out – using lots of heavy bass, keyboards, and fuzzy guitars – so it's no surprise that on tracks like these, all heavy rockers from the Tropicalia and post-Tropicalia years, the sound really opens up! The compilation's a nice one in that it moves past obvious political and musical canonization of Brazilian rock acts – and just presents the tunes for what they are, some better known artists standing equally next to obscure rockers we're hearing here for the first time! Titles include "E Assim Falava Mefistofeles" by O Bando, "Tao Longe De Mim" by Os Brazoes, "I Need You" by O Terco, "Lunatica" by Assim Assado, "Birds In My Tree" by The Buttons, "Voando" by Liverpool, "Let's Go" by Sound Factory, "Fidelidade" by Marconi Notaro, "Mensageiro" by Paul Bagunca, and "Miragem" by Os Lobos.
