✨✧ VariousTrip To Brazil Vol 3 – Back To Bossa ... CD
EmArcy (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of bossa nova – and one of the best compilations you could hope to buy! The set is the third volume in the all-wonderful Trip To Brazil series – and like the others, it's a boundary-less selection of tunes in the bossa mode – pulled from the global catalog of Universal music, and featuring tracks from Brazil, France, Germany, New York, LA, and other points worldwide – all unified with a magical love of the gentle groove, and served up in a sweet looking package that's a bargain at any price! And even if you own a good bit of bossa work already – as we certainly do – the set's a delight in the way that it brings together tunes that you might have either forgotten about or passed over, and which re-emerge here to sparkle in a whole new light! The sound is great, the look is wonderful, and the whole thing's put together with a 24 page booklet that includes notes on all of the album's 47 tracks! Titles include "Zazueira" by Luiz Eca, "Que E Que Voce Vai Fazer Nesse Carnaval" by Azymuth, "Bahia Soul" by Luiz Bonfa, "Voce E Eu" by Sylvia Telles & Tamba Trio, "Lalari Olala" by Jorge Ben, "The Dolphin" by Bill Evans, "Diz Que Fui Por Ai" by Neyde Fraga & Walter Wanderley, "Wave" by The Sandpipers, "Hey Jude" by Edu Lobo, "Festa No Sertao" by Zimbo Trio, "Casa Forte" by Helen Merrill, "Little Boat" by Lorez Alexandria, "Seu Encanto" by Rio 65 Trio – and lots lots lots more!

Beaver Harris & The 360 Degree Music ExperienceFrom Rag Time To No Time ... LP
360 Degrees, 1974. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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

✨✧ Luiz HenriqueBarra Limpa ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible work from Luiz Henrique – one of our favorite singers of the 60s bossa era, heard here with some completely sublime arrangements! Luiz has a bit more jazz in his voice than some of his contemporaries – a great ability to sing both regular lyrics and wordless scatting – the latter of which is often heard to great effect fleshing out the tunes on this sweet mid 60s set for Verve! The style of the record is a bit simpler than some of the other Verve bossa sides from the time – with backings that are heavy on accordion from Sivuca, who himself sings a bit on the set, with that harmonica-like tone of his – plus guitar from Luiz, and a bit of bass and drums – all hanging beautifully in air with a wonderfully breezy sound throughout! Henrique sings some lyrics in English, and some in Portuguese – and titles include "Listen To Me", "Reza", "Mas Que Nada", "Or Moro", "If You Want To Be a Lover", and "Trip to Brazil".

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ VariousHoliday In Brazil – 24 Bossa Nova & Jet Set Hymns From The Brilliant Music Archives ... CD
9PM (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Breezy bossa – but from Germany! The set's a dip into the archives of the Brilliant Music label – a 60s and 70s sound library imprint, and one that specialized in cool and easy grooves. The 24 tracks on the set all take a core bossa groove, and fuse it through a Euro easy approach with a fab 60s sound – very much in the mood of some of the MPS Snowflakes-type tracks, or in the spirit of some of the recent Stereo Deluxe compilations of German easy tracks by Zack Stingl. And no surprise, record-hound Stingl had a hand in this one too – poring over a wealth of cool tracks to come up with some soaring, sweeping gems that we really love! Strings soar, percussion grooves, and neat electric bits sneak in and make everything all nice and smooth! Titles include "Chica Do Verrao" by Addy Flor, "Bright Shining Stars" and "Round Trip To Rio" by Pete Jacques, "Eliana" by Syd Dale, "Young Sound" and "Wide Horizon" by Heinz Kiessling, "Pecherino" by Charlie Steinmann, "Latin Lady" by Colin Frechter, "Viva La Samba" by Rolf-Hans Muller, and "Let's Face It" by Richie Hillman.

Dorothy AshbyDorothy's Harp ... CD
Cadet (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the grooviest Dorothy Ashby albums of the 60s – a set that has her already-great jazz work on harp backed by Chicago soul arrangements from Richard Evans – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of the Soulful Strings, but even groovier! And as an added bonus, Odell Brown even plays a bit of Fender Rhodes on the record – which sounds especially great! Both Ashby and Evans are at the height of their powers here – mixing together bits of jazz, soul, and trippier elements in a sublime late 60s Cadet Records blend – one that's carried off perfectly on the original tunes "Truth Spoken Here", "Tornado", "Cause I Need It", and "Just Had To Tell Somebody" – but which also sounds great on some of the album's cool covers too! Other titles include Brazilian numbers "Reza" and "Canto De Ossanha" – both of which are transformed in Dorothy's hands – plus "This Girl's In Love", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", and "Windmills of Your Mind"!

AzymuthBrazilian Soul ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2004. Used ... $14.99
It's been 30 years since Azymuth first took the Brazilian jazz scene by storm – and in that time, they've never let up a minute! From their initial tripped-out recordings to their soulful dancefloor classics, California fusion, and recent London gems, the group's never faltered a bit – and has always served up an incredible blend of Brazilian rhythms and funky fusion with a very soulful finish! This album marks the group's 30th year in jazz, and it's one of their best of the past 20 – a sublime effort that's dripping with warm keyboard lines, grooving with spacey rhythms, and overflowing with great help from guest singers and musicians that include Roberto Menescal, Emilio Santiago, Marcio Lott, Fabiola, Ze Carlos,Leo Gandleman, and Roc Hunter! The Brazilian Soul title is extremely fitting – as the group manages to groove with a soulful undercurrent, yet never sounds too slick or too held back – as is evidenced by the really free-flowing keyboard work on the set. Titles include "Sem Destino", "Biaozinho Carioca", "Depois De Carnival", "O Lance", "Te Querendo", "Sambafrica", "Roda Piao", "Pra Ze", and "Estatico". CD

Pierre CavalliUna Vitamina Faz Favor ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Sweet bossa-tinged grooves from the 70s – but recorded in Switzerland, not Brazil! Guitarist Pierre Cavalli had plenty of experience with the scene in Brazil during the late 60s – and for these 70s sides, he really tries to recreate the best sounds of Rio from a few years back – but often mixes in some of his own offbeat twists and turns, including some of the hipper undercurrents he picked up while working on recordings for MPS! The tunes are less straight bossa than some great Germanic imagining of bossa nova – with slightly tripping turns from Pierre on his guitar, cool wordless vocals in a few spots, sweet Fender Rhodes, and arrangements from Bruno Spoerri and Angel Gatti that are mighty nice. The set's easily one of the best in Sonorama's reissue series – and titles include "Possarinhos", "Cachaca", "Violao Em Foco", "Pao De Acucar", "Transmissao Mutavel", "Tempo In Tempo", "Tecidos", and "Alegria".

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

Gilberto GilGilberto's Samba ... LP
Sony/Polysom (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $29.99
One of the best records we've heard from Gilberto Gil in many, many years – a stripped-down session that focuses on his voice and guitar work – in a style that takes us back to Gil's earliest days in music! The album feels like some lost session that Gilberto might have recorded in the 60s – before his Louvacao debut – done with mostly just a bit of light percussion from the enigmatic Domenico, plus some help from Moreno Veloso – who also co-produced the record as well, with that great sense of space he always brings to his own music too. A few cuts feature extra touches – a bit of accordion, or some flute from Danilo Caymmi – but the main focus is on Gil, who hasn't sounded this great in years – still able to capture our imagination when he works in a straightforward style like this. Titles include "Milagre", "Um Abraco No Joao", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Eu Sambo Mesmo", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", and "Desde Que O Samba E Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto GilGilberto's Samba Ao Vivo ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A really lovely live performance from Gilberto Gil – and one that follows in the same stripped-down mode as his excellent Gilberto's Samba album! The format here is wonderful – a real return to greatness for Gil, as he plays acoustic guitar and sings, with just a bit of extra backing – at a level that's partially like his spare acoustic work at the start of the 70s, and partly like some of the best Joao Gilberto albums in a similar mode! Given that Gilberto came onto the scene as the bossa years were fading, he only had a bit of this style in his music at the start – but he brings decades of experience and warmth to the performance here – at a level that's far different than any sort of bossa rehash project, and which instead really lets us get to the heart of Gil's music for the first time in years. Moreno Veloso helped with the project, and it's got some nice modern undercurrents similar to his music – and titles include "Gilbertos", "Doralice", "Rio Eu Te Amo", "Rosa Morena", "Eu Sambo Mesmo", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Aquele Abraco", "Meio De Campo", and "Ladeira De Preguica". CD features a bonus track not on the DVD – "E Luxo So". CD

Production Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $20.99
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

Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99
An incredibly rare EP from Brazil – one that's filled with trippy sounds that definitely match the image on the cover! The music is somewhere in the samba soul territory of the late 60s, but also has some bigger backings – of the sort you'd hear on EMI/Odeon work of the period – like work by Som Tres or Wilson Simonal – and the vocal approach on the work is definitely somewhere in the realm of Simonal, with a nice raspy charm. The set features four tracks – one mellow, the others nice and groovy – and titles include "Tangara", "Hippie 12", "Confissao", and "KM 110". 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of Ivan Lins' strongest albums of the 80s – a spacious mixture of jazz influences and MPB, recorded with arrangements by the great Gilson Peranzzetta, a talent whose work has graced some of the best Brazilian albums of this generation! Peranzzetta allows plenty of space for piano on the songs – sadly tripping along the rhythms alongside Lins' wonderful vocals – recorded with a sensitivity that recalls some of Elis Regina's best work of the 70s. Titles include "Lembra", "Doce Presenca", "Meu Piano", "Estoria De Amor", and "Loucas De Maio". LP, Vinyl record album

O BangoO Bango ... LP
Musidisc/Groovie (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A heady set of Brazilian psych from O Bango – a group who'd recorded as Os Canibais a few short years before, but who are even trippier here in this later formation! The record has the group really moving past simpler rock styles of the jovem guarda generation – into this weird use of organ and guitar with lots of trippy touches – sometimes on one instrument, sometimes on the other – as the vocals get this cool, compressed level of production that's a lot like some of the more ambitious work coming from the other South American scenes of the time, but nicely compact, too. We'd be tempted to say that these guys are adding in a touch of Tropicalia, but the music itself is a bit more straightforward from a political perspective – experimenting in the studio for its own sake, while still rocking out – and having a hell of a time in the process. Titles include "Rock Dream", "Only", "Geninha", "Vou Caminhar", "Ode To Billy", "Mas Senti", and "Inferno No Mundo". Comes with an insert of notes – and the bonus track "Mongoose".

A tripped-out batch of tracks from Brazil! These guys mix together a bit of funk, a bit of psych, and touches of Jorge Ben-like soul – into a blend that's really groovy all the way through, and which will be sure to please any fan of the Samba Soul groove! Jorge Ben's influence is all over the set – filtered through some garagey production that makes the tracks sound rawer than any of Ben's own work, and which give the guitars a nice fuzzed out edge. The whole thing's almost psychedelic at times, but has a fair bit of soul as well – and titles include "Gotham City", "Que Maravilha", "Carolina, Carol Bela", "Modulo Lunar", "Volkswagen Blue", "Feitico", "Espiral", and "Momento B/8".

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark album that changed a generation of Brazilian musicians – a sublime instrumental collaboration between Airto, Hermeto Pascoal, and 2 other great musicians of their generation! The sound is quite unique – almost a modern recasting of older rootsy modes – taken into the complicated jazzy territory of Airto and Pascoal's best work of the early 70s, but done in an even more stripped down mode! Airto plays percussion, Pascoal plays flute, Geraldo Vandre handles guitar, and Theo De Barros is also in the group – and there's a groove that's impossible to describe accurately, but which you'll instantly recognize as archetypal! Includes the legendary tracks "Misturada" and "Vim de Santana" – plus "Sintese", "Canta Maria", "Canto Geral", and "O Ovo". Japanese version contains 2 bonus tracks – "O Cantador" and a killer version of "Ponteio"! CD

Wanda SaWanda Sa Ao Vivo (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the coolest, most compelling work we've heard in years from Wanda Sa – a very spare, stripped-down session that really gets back to the roots of her music from the 60s! Wanda Sa has been reviving her bossa sound for the past decade or more, but most of those recordings often have a decidedly modern feel in some of the instrumental and production choices – while this album really goes for a classic vibe all the way through, as Wanda sings beautifully without any extra trappings, and plays guitar with this sublime sense of tone and color to really illuminate the lyrics! The music has some extra backings, too – but really in a light, small combo bossa mode – save for some points when Sa is joined by Marcos Valle, Joao Donato, and Carlos Lyra – all of whom approach the project in a similar way. Titles include "O Que E Amar", "Novo Acorde", "Vagamente", "Ciume", "Pra Sempre", "Minha Saudade/Bim Bom", and "E Nada Mais". Also features bonus tracks with appearances from Jane Monheit and Dori Caymmi! CD

Rare psych and otherwise trippy rock from Sergio Augusto Bustamente – aka Serguei – recordings made for Polydor Brazil and smaller labels from the mid 60s to mid 70s! Like a lot of our favorite global psych era rock, the freaky elements are balanced nicely with solid production values and strong musicianship. It's wild and wooly, but with charismatic vocals and tuneful songwriting – laid down with fuzz guitar and heady organ grooves on the more rocking material, and some all around adventurous arrangements thorughout! Includes "Burro Cor De Rosa", "Eu Nao Volto Mais", "De Sol A Sol", "Eu Sou Psicodelico", "Aventura", "Alfa Centauro", "Ourico",, "As Alucinacoes De Serguei", "Maria Antonieta Sem Bolinhas" and "Pegue Ze".

Caetano VelosoCaetano Veloso (1967) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on contemporaneous records by Gal Costa or Os Mutantes – served up with similar wit, wisdom, and charm! Caetano's vocals are amazing throughout – filled with raspy power that goes beyond the barriers of language – and the production has loads of surprising elements tripping through the mix – some rootsy, some slightly orchestrated – but with a softer approach that resonates strongly with more psychedelic use of organ and guitar. The album's as powerful today as it was decades ago – an essential recording that holds up beautifully year after year! The kickoff track is "Tropicalia" (surprisingly enough!), and the album is a non-stop ride through gems like "Alegria, Alegria", "Onde Andaras", "Paisagem Util", "Ave Maria", and the groovy "Soy Loco Por Ti America", written by Gilberto Gil. 2 bonus tracks – we THINK from the original Japanese releases: "Yes, Nos Temos Banana" and "Ai De Mim, Copacabana".

Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von – an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here – strong echoes of British work of the time, but used in much more sophisticated ways than any Jovem Guarda acts – never a simple copycat approach, but also never as arty as some of the Tropicalia recordings of the time either. Ronnie's voice has a depth that allows some nice changes in mood from track to track – lightly lyrical one moment, a bit darker and more tripped-out the next – bringing a sense of variety to the record that almost recalls Caetano Veloso during the time, but a bit more rockish overall. Titles include "Atlantica", "Dindi", "De Como Meu Heroi Flash Gordon", "Foi Bom", "Rose Ann", "Comeci Uma Brincadeira", and "Mares De Areia". LP, Vinyl record album

A groundbreaking collection of batucada tracks, all put together by Brazilian experts Mr Bongo – and with a very keen ear towards the kind of cuts that never let up in intensity or energy! In case you're not familiar with batucada, it's a Brazilian style that focuses on hard, fast percussion – usually with lots of instruments in unison, shifting between rhythm and melody at once – as you might hear on the most frenetic samba albums from years back, or even more stripped-down Brazilian percussion albums. This collection is one of the best ways you could ever get into the music – and there's an excellent sampling of tunes by a wide number of artists – with titles that include "Ritmo Number One" by Paulinho Da Costa, "Pai Bene, Queimou O Pe" by Pontela, "Rapido" by Portinho, "Repimar" by Jadir De Castro and Dom Um Romao, "Vibrando Com A Selecao" by Verde Amarelo, and "Quando O Couro Fala" by Fernando.

Elenco/Polysom (Brazil), Mid 60s. New Copy 5LPs ... $174.99
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
