Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ 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. The whole thing's done in beautiful Soul Jazz-style packaging – with a huge extra booklet inside a slipcase alongside the CD. 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) ... CD
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. Used ... $9.99
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

Return To ForeverComplete Columbia Albums Collection (Romantic Warrior/Music Magic/Live The Complete Concert) (5CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s. Used 5CD ... $34.99
An amazing triple-header – a set that features three full albums from Return To Forever – one of which is a triple-length set! First up is Romantic Warrior – one of the hardest-jamming Return To Forever albums – recorded with the post-Brazilian lineup that includes Chick Corea on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Lenny White on percussion, and Al DiMeola on guitars. Corea's very firmly in the lead – stretching out in heavy keyboard romps that really take off into space – propelled by fierce drums from White, heavy bass from Clarke, and a bit of tippling guitar from DiMeola. Next is Music Magic – a further extension of the Return To Forever vibe that helped Chick Corea find some of his best energy of the 70s! The style is still as tightly focused as before, but also opens up with a bit more soul, too – trading some slight moments of jamming for a CTI sense of funk – a mighty nice move that makes this album one of our all-time favorites by the group! Gayle Morgan plays some very cool organ and mini-moog next to Chick's wide array of keyboards – and Joe Farrell serves up wonderful tenor, soprano sax, and flutes – which really help shape the sound. Last up is Return To Forever Live – The Complete Concert – a vastly-extended exploration of this legendary 70s group at their best! The triple-length package offers the ensemble plenty of room to open things up – long tracks that stretch out with the boundless energy that Chick Corea first brought to the group, yet also coming together with the sort of soulful focus that really makes this second chapter so great too! Chick plays a huge host of keyboards, almost more than we can imagine being on a single stage – Fender Rhodes, minimoog, Arp, clavinet, and more – and Gayle Morgan also plays more keys, but more importantly lends some soulful vocals to the outing.

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyDorothy's Harp ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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"!

✨✧ Glue TripGlue Trip (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Production Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Chico Buarque & OthersChico – Artista Brasileiro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
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.

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosSonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... About January 6, 2017
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 CarvalhoPandeiro E Viola ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... $23.99
The title's no lie, as the album features plenty of guitar and percussion next to the great vocals of Beth Carvalho – just the sort of lively samba backings that make her 70s albums so wonderful! There's a stripped-down, no-nonsense approach to the set – that surprisingly rootsy approach that was often used on the best samba albums of the generation – in ways that makes them instantly timeless, especially when graced with such a strong lead singer as Beth! Carvalho's voce is incredible – expressive, but without ever being overdone – with a soulful depth that grabs us right away, and holds us rapt throughout the entire record. Titles include "Gota D'Agua", "Cansaco", "Sente O Peso Do Couro", "O Dia De Amanha", "So Queria Ser Feliz", and "Pandeiro E Viola". CD

Joao DonatoDonato-Deodato ... LP
Muse, 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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

Stan Getz with Joao GilbertoBest Of Two Worlds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful return to 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".

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Ao Vivo – Montreux International Jazz Festival ... LP
Elektra (Brazil), 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Gilberto Gil live at Montreux – playing in this spare, stripped-down style that's quite a change from some of his more fully produced albums of the period – a mode that's very much like some of Gilberto's best albums from the start of the 70s! There's a lot of acoustic guitar in the instrumentation – as you'd guess from the cover – and backing is by a jazzy combo who can bring a slight touch of funk at times, but only in these gentle ways that still live Gil holding most of the energy of the performance with his charismatic presence. The tracks are all very long, with the kind of vocal and instrumental jamming that Gil brought to his best live performances – and the set's recorded in such a way that it really draws the audience into the picture. Titles include "Chororo", "Chuck Berry Fields Forever", "Atras Do Trio Electrico", "Tirole", and "Bat Macumba". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto GilGilberto's Samba ... LP
Sony/Polysom (Brazil), 2014. New Copy ... $32.99
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

WEA (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – and a set that's also one of the most intimate recordings that the great Joao Gilberto made during the 90s! There's a very spare, stripped-down vibe to the album – very much in the spirit of Gilberto's classic material, with an undeniable charm, and an amazing ability to do a hell of a lot with just a little – then make the whole thing seem completely effortless! Gilberto's one of the few of his generation who just seemed to get better as the years go on – as you'll hear from his beautiful work on guitar, and his always wonderful vocals. Rita Lee joins in on the track "Jou Jo Balangandas", Bebel Gilberto duets on "Chega De Saudade", and the other tracks include "Menino Do Rio", "Cuarare", "O Pato", "Canta Brasil" – and CD-only bonus tracks "Estate", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Bahia Com H", and "Aquarela Do Brasil".

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1977) ... LP
Som Livre/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... About January 13, 2017
70s soul from Brazil – and a tremendously strong effort from the legendary Tim Maia! This record was Tim's first after an initial run on Polydor – and it shows Maia tightening up his groove even more, but still avoiding the slicker sounds of later years. There's a really focused sound here that's totally great – one that shows that Maia's work was hardly just some happy cross-cultural accident, and instead the careful work of an artist who was out to challenge the best American soul acts of the time! There's a warm little groove to most of the tracks – tripping along lightly in the vein of some of our favorite US mellow soul from the mid 70s – an approach that's mostly soul, but with some funky undercurrents – and often smooth, but never cloying or overly commercial. Titles include "Ride Twist & Roll", "Flores Belas", "Let It All Hang Out", "Sem Voce", "E Necessario", "Leva O Meu Blue", "Pense Menos", and "Musica Para Betinha". LP, Vinyl record album

Boranda, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
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 '66Ye-Me-Le ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Way past the hits, and into some really great territory – a move that makes the record one of our favorite Sergio Mendes sets for A&M! The sweeter bossa pop style here is undercut with a bit more influence from late 60s Brazilian grooves – some of the more baroque turns that Sergio's contemporaries back home were taking, mixed with a few of the trippier influences that were coming into the scene as well. The overall style is still in the warm two-voiced mode that made Brasil 66 famous, but we appreciate some of the headier moments moving into the mix – partly from the guitar of Oscar Castro Neves, as well as the orchestrations by a young Dave Grusin! Titles include the fantastic title cut "Ye-Me-Le" – a wonderful groover written by Luiz Carlos Vinhas – plus a number of excellent covers, like "Norwegian Wood", "What The World Needs Now", "Moanin", and "Where Are You Coming From?".
