El KintoEl Kinto – Complete Collection ... CD
Lion, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
An incredible collection of work by El Kinto – a short-lived but crucially important group in the Uruguay rock scene of the late 60s – finally given their due in this overstuffed deluxe CD package! El Kinto were a seminal link between the beat group sounds of the earlier South American scene, and some of the headier, tripper work to come in the psychedelic years – and their music was an unusual blend of local roots and more ambitious rock – served up in styles that were somewhat different than the candombe music of other artists on the scene. Core rock instrumentation was often augmented by a bit of Latin percussion – used in a way that created a nicely earthy feel at the bottom of most of the tunes, which was in contrast to the cleaner, but also somewhat spare use of guitars on the top. There's a criss-crossing sensibility here that's not unlike Brazilian Tropicalia at times – although clearly not as politically motivated, nor as culturally radical – and what really blows us away about these tunes is the overall sense of sound – a simple, but extremely effective placement of all the simplest elements, to create music without easy comparison (even though we've been trying for the last few lines!) Group members include percussionist Ruben Rada and South American rock legend Eduardo Mateo – and the package features 16 tracks by El Kinto – plus 6 more by related artists The Knights, Aldo Y Daniel, and Roberta Lee. Titles include "Jose", "Mejor Me Voy", "Estoy Sin Ti", "Muy Lejos Te Vas", "Esa Tristeza", "Don Pascual", "Damelo", "Pippo", "Yo Volvere Por Ti", "Como El Brillo Del Sol", "La Felicita", and "Penas De Sal".

✨✧ Tim MaiaTim Maia (1970) ... LP
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. New Copy ... $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".

Philippe Baden PowellBrazil – Piano Masters Series Vol 2 ... CD
Adventure Music, 2012. Used ... $2.99
A striking solo set from Phillipe Baden Powell – much bolder and more expressive than his previous album – even though the overall feel is a lot more stripped-down too! Baden's got a very sharp approach to the keys of the piano – working here in a range of tones that's really breathtaking – a stark palette of sounds that's recorded with just the right sort of depth to let all of his most subtle touches come through. As befits his roots, the tunes are a mix of Brazilian numbers and jazz standards – plus a few original compositions as well – and titles include "Canto Triste", "Consolacao", "Prologue", "The Meantime", "Loro", "Choro Para Metronomo", "Ending", "Giant Steps", and "Vista Chinesa".

VariousTropicalia 30 Anos ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 1997. Used ... $5.99
Very cool new compilation that features modern versions of Tropicalia classics from the late 60's, with performances by many of the artists who made the movement happen in the first place! The CD includes 13 cuts, including versions of "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, & Tom Ze; "Divino Maravilhoso" by Gal Costa, "Atras Do Trio Eletrico" by Moraes Moreira, "Alegria, Alegria" by Daniela Mercury, "Bat Macumba" by Ile Aye, and "Soy Loco Por Ti America" by Araketu! The set's packaged in a cool sleeve with lots of colorful images in collage, and lyrics to all the songs. And in case you're wondering, the production standards are good, and not too poppy. The stuff's not as tripped out as it was in the 60's, but the set's still a great tribute to some of the greatest Brazilian songs of all time. CD

✨✧ VariousSecao Ritmica – Instrumental Funk From 70s Brazil ... CD
Atemoya, 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead take keen inspiration from the American world of jazz and soul – which they then mix with occasional instrumental touches of their own region, and often use some wonderfully trippy production to put a really unique spin on the music! So even though these tracks are filled with heavy drums, riffing guitars, and killer keyboards – they've got a special sound that really sets them apart from the American music that first gave them inspiration – all of which makes for an incredibly fresh approach to funky styles. Titles include "Sultana" by Aquarius Band, "Eu Quero Levar Voce Pra Casa" by Ed Lincoln, "The King's Bounce" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Tio Macro" by Dom Salvador, "Kool & The Gang" by Cry Babies, "Metropole" by Cesar Mariano & CIA, "Rush" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Assalto" by Ze Rodrix, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, and "Tipo Africa" by Brazil Very Happy Band. Also includes "Big Splash" by Som Orlando Silveira, "Ju Ju Man" by Hot Stuff Band, "Batucada Tropical" by Jose Prates, "Bridge" by We, "The Name Of The Game" by Os Tremendoes, and "Papa Jimmy" by Guilherme Coutinho.

✨✧ Joao GilbertoJoao Gilberto (1963) ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Joao Gilberto's first-ever albums – filled with incredibly beautiful bossa material that captures the vocals and guitar of Gilberto at their fragile early best – backed by sublime arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley! The setting is perfect, and the sound is amazing – that incredible stripped-down breathy quality that` made Joao a legend right out of the box – which so many others tried to copy over the years, but never got this right. A beautiful relic from the past – with a lovely image of Joao's young face on the cover – and titles that include "O Barquinho", "O Amor Em Paz", "Voce e Eu", "Coisa Mas Linda", and "Presente De Natal". LP, Vinyl record album
(1972 Brazilian pressing – in great shape!)

Barclay (Brazil), 1983. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Live set by this master Brazilian singer/songwriter. Unlike other records from this time, Bosco's playing in a nice stripped-down setting, with just his guitar to accompany his soulful vocals. The set's nearly all originals written by Bosco and songwriting parter Adair Blanc. Titles include "Kid Cavaquinho", "Linha De Passe", "Coisa Feita", and "O Bebado E A Equilibrista".

Brass Ring featuring Phil BodnerDisadvantages Of You ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A real gem from The Brass Ring – and an album that has a goofy cover designed to recall the famous TV commercial that used the title hit! The record itself is a work of pure genius – tightly compressed easy instrumentals, all in that unique Brass Ring mode – a sound that's sweetly stepping, slightly Latin, and peppered with great sax parts on top of slinky organ lines! The groove is much more stripped-down than other material of its type at the time, with sax in the lead, and small combo rhythms that really sound great – almost a distillation of all the best 60s influences from bossa Brazil and A&M. Tracks are wonderful too – and titles include "Music To Watch Girls By", "The Dis-Advantages Of You", "I Will Wait For You", "The Dating Game", and "A Man & A Woman". All this, and a wonderful cover of a short old guy with a tall sexy blonde! LP, Vinyl record album

Erasmo CarlosSonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao".

Beth CarvalhoMundo Melhor ... LP
RCA (Brazil), 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Beth Carvalho was one of the leading lights of the new samba generation of the 70s – and this great little album is a good illustration of the lady at her best! Beth can hit a lively groove with the best of them, but also bring a bit more expression to her voice as well – sometimes almost reaching territory of her more sophisticated partners in the MPB generation – but never losing sight of the lightly tripping qualities that make her samba so great! Core instrumentation comes from cavaquinho, 7 string guitar, and lots more percussion – arranged by Ivan Paulo and Rildo Hora, on titles that include "Antes Ele Do Que Eu", "Te Segura", "Salario Minimo", "Meu Escudo", "Divina E A Musica", "Mundo Melhor", and "Quero Alegria".

Gilberto GilFe Na Festa ... CD
Facil (Brazil), 2010. New Copy ... $3.99
One of the freshest albums we've heard in years from Gilberto Gil – a set that seems to shake off some of the misdirections of recent records, and really get back the sharper style of his roots – while still also heading off into a new mode as well! There's a definite forro undercurrent here, especially in the rhythms – and Gil uses the style to strip things down, get a bit rootsy, and really bring up these great earthy grooves alongside his vocals – moving things towards the spirit of his late 70s music, even though things here sound totally different! Production is never too slick, and titles include "Marmundo", "Assim Sim", "Fe Na Festa", "Marla Minha", "Aprendi Com O Rei", "La Vem Ela", and "Sao Jao Carioca". CD

Luiz Gonzaga Jr (Gonzaguinha)Alo Alo Brasil ... LP

This one's awash in keyboard work by Jota Moraes – smooth, but not slick, in a style that's a bit more stripped down and less ambitious than some of Luiz's other work – yet done in a way that actually still sounds pretty great. Overall, the record's a bit more intimate, a bit more laidback than some of his others – mature and well-written songs, handled with a really nice vocal style. Titles include "Memoria", "Nave Especial", "Feliz", "Todo Boato Tem Um Fundo Musical", "Se Eu Quiser Viver", and "Alo Alo Brasil". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the nice envelope style sleeve with the heavy inner sleeve. Vinyl has a short click in one spot, but the rest is great.)

Antonio Carlos Jobim & OthersTom Masculino – Eles Cantam Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
The music of Antonio Carlos Jobim opened up huge new territory for male singers in Brazil during the 60s – a way of being personal and emotive, but without any of the overdone modes of the generation before – nor some of the false bravado that was usually mixed in with the presentation of the lyrics! Instead, Jobim allowed a stripped-down, warmly poetic approach that opened up huge new territory for singers in the bossa generation and beyond – as you'll hear in this very cool collection of classic work that begins during the initial time of Jobim's first compositions, and runs through the 60s and 70s to show an array of artists who were really helping to transform his music. Titles include "Ligia" by Chico Buarque, "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar" by Caetano Veloso, "So Danco Samba" by Joao Donato, "Tema De Amor De Gabriela" by Ney Matogrosso, "Samba De Uma Nota So" by Baden Powell & Jimmy Pratt, "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce" by Pedro Mariano, "Olha Maria" by Emilio Santiago, "Agua De Beber" by Tamba Trio, "Dindi" by Lucio Alves, and "Ana Luiza" by MPB4.

✨✧ Rita LeeHoje E O Primeiro Dia Do Resto Da Sua Vida (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". LP, Vinyl record album

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1978) (CD & book) ... CD
Seroma/Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A great one from Brazilian soul singer Tim Maia – an album that's sung almost entirely in English, and which shows Maia really maturing into one hell of an international star! The set's got some great mellow grooves – tracks that would be right at home in the New Jersey scene of the early 70s – especially given their laidback execution, and honest, heartfelt lyrics – as well as the relatively spare, stripped-down instrumentation – which really leaves a lot of room for Tim's great vocals! Guitar is used wonderfully – in that spare-tripping style you'd find on obscure harmony soul singles of a few years before – and titles include "To Fall In Love", "With No One Else Around", "To Fall In Love", "I Love You Girl", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", and "Day By Day". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 45 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Andre Marques/John Patitucci/Brian BladeViva Hermeto ... CD
Boranda, 2015. Used ... $8.99
The music of Brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal, turned into a sweet set of jazzy trio numbers from Andrew Marques on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums! The group really hit the right sort of essence for Hermeto's tunes – that open, fluid, yet highly rhythmic vibe that's always made us love his songs – delivered here in a setting that's a lot more stripped-down instrumentally than Pascoal's initial recordings, but with a vibe that's no less compelling! Blade and Patitucci have to do a hell of a lot of work on the set – moving around with dexterity and color that's got us appreciating their talents in whole new ways – and on a few cuts, the group's also joined by percussionist Rogerio Boccato. Titles include "Bebe", "Ferragens", "Boiada", "Chorinho Pra Ele", "Quaraquaua", "O Ovo", and "Ramos De Girassol". CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
A&M/Speakers Corner (Germany), 1966. Sealed ... $34.99
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
