Luiz BonfaJacaranda ... LP
Ranwood, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
Very cool album recorded by Luiz Bonfa in the US, with cool electric arrangements by Deodato, and a sound that's unlike anything else he's ever done! Some tracks even get downright funky, and there's a nice break or two on here, if you're the type that digs for that sort of thing. Titles include "Apache Talk", "Sun Flower", "Jacaranda", "Strange Message", and "Danse V". Idris Muhammad's on drums, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, a cutout notch and a small stain inside the gatefold.)

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... $13.99
One of the all time great ones! This mad bit of music was composed for the film by Luiz Bonfa and Antonio Carlos Jobim, and it's a crazy mix of batucada, samba, and a bit of bossa nova. The soundtrack takes all of the musical bits, and it mixes them up into an insane collage of sound effects, speaking, and music. It sounds incredible, and it's even more spooky than the movie. With loads of classics that you'll recognize – but done in a crazy crazy way – like "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval". Plus, this CD also includes a 13-minute medley of tracks from the score, performed by Bola Sete at the 1966 Monterey Jazz Fest! CD
(Out of print. BMG Direct pressing.)

✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Epic) ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow & black label pressing with deep groove.)

Rosinha De ValencaUm Violao Em Primeiro Plano ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier Brazilian guitarists like Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa – and on this set, she's backed by some light arrangements that almost have a groovy late 60s LA feel – with lots of nice lilting A&M-ish moments, touched by other spots of Brazilian grooves and funk! The blend is wonderful, and makes the record a real standout from Rosinha – a record that's more than enough to help her make her mark away from Sergio! Titles include "Asa Branca", "Summertime", "Samba De Minha Terra", "Tema Espanhol", "Boi Ta Ta", "Marinheiro", "Zanzibar", and "Mudei De idea". CD

America's greatest contribution to the bossa nova in the 60s – served up here in a nicely priced 5CD set!

Joao GilbertoJoao Gilberto – The Legend/Antiques & Curios (Chega De Saudade/O Amor O Sorriso E A Flor/Joao Gilberto/rare tracks) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CDs ... $8.99 13.99
A beautiful collection of work from the legendary Joao Gilberto – some of the most important bossa nova recordings ever, plus a fair bit of rarities as well! The first CD in the set features three full early albums from Gilberto – Chega De Saudade, O Amor O Sorriso E A Flor, and Joao Gilberto – each a masterpiece in understatement – with breathy vocals and light guitar from the maestro, plus light percussion and orchestrations that never overwhelm at all – but simply hang their in air, and shade the songs with these really gentle hues and colors. The second CD features lots of rare material – including work from the film Copacabana Palace, with Gilberto, Norma Benguell, Luiz Bonfa, and others – and early recordings from Elizete Cardoso, Os Cariocas, and Joao himself. The set features 64 tracks in all, packaged in two groovy record sleeves with a booklet inside a slipcover! CD

✨✧ ToquinhoQue Maravilha 1966 to 1974 (A Bossa Do Toquinho/Toquinho/Botequim/Boca Da Noite) (4CD set) ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $49.99
Four early albums by Toquinho – packaged together here in a single set, and with two bonus tracks too! First up is A Bossa Do Toquinho, from 1966 – an honest to goodness actual bossa nova session from Toquinho – one that's recorded during the 60s, and not one of his bossa-revival styled sets from later years! The Toquinho here is a bit more tender and tentative than in later years – playing acoustic guitar in a setting that evokes the work of Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa, but with a close-up style that's even more intimate and personal – even at moments when the instrumentation is slightly expanded by organ, flute, or other instrumentation. There's a great sense of melancholy running through the record – almost like Baden Powell on his best European sessions – and although spare, the record has a tremendous sense of power, one that we don't always hear in Toquinho's later work. Titles include "Ole Ola", "Da Me", "Allemande", "Antes E Depois", "Canto De Ossanha", "Zambi", "Valsa De Euridice", and "Triste Amor Que Vai Morrer". 1970's Toquinho is an album done before his famous collaborations with Vincius De Moraes, and with a very different groove! The record features guest appearances by Jorge Ben on two tracks – and much of the record seems to have Toquinho absorbing a bit of Ben's spirit – using lively samba rhythms on some of the best tracks, which creates a groove that's really unexpected – and which makes the album a real standout in his catalog! Toquinho's guitar work is wonderful in the setting – maybe even more compelling in its deftness, and no less full of feeling – and titles include a killer reading of "Que Maravilha", done with Jorge Ben, who also guests on "Carolina Carol Bela" – and other titles include a version of "Bachianinha No 1" with Paulinho Nogueira; a great cover of Ben's "Zana"; and the tracks "Evocacao A Jacob", "Chuva Na Praia De Juqui", "Evocacao De Jacob", "De Ontem Pra Hoje", and "Na Agua Negra Da Lagoa". Botequim is one of the most compelling albums from the early years of Toquinho – a set that was done in collaboration with Gianfrancesco Guarnieri, who co-wrote the songs – in a mode that's much more soaring and spacious than some of Toquinho's other work! Female vocalist Marlene sings lead on about half the tracks, with Toquinho on the others – and there's an ambitious vibe to the album that's almost in territory of Edu Lobo, especially given the brightness of the arrangements. Titles include "Dane Se", "Quem Sabe Mais", "Cancao Do Medo", "Esperando Por Voce", "Quanto Vale Uma Crianca", "Embolada No Carrapato", and "Boboeu Nao Vai Entender". Boca Da Noite is a fantastic album from Toquinho – one of the best that he cut during the 70s! This album's got a much more stripped-down sound than others – with a soulful mix of vocals and spare acoustic guitar that sounds somewhere between the early 70s work of Baden Powell and Terry Callier – and which is way different than the bossa revival work Toquinho cut with Vinicius De Moraes! There's some larger arrangements lurking at the back of most tracks – but these are kept clean, and relatively spare – so that the strongest focus is on Toquinho's voice and guitar. Titles include a sparkling remake of "Asa Branca", done with a spare style that still retains the grandiose quality of the song – plus "Sem Enredo", "Boca Da Noite", "1969, Aeroporto Do Galeo", "Noite Longa", and "Lembrando Josh White". Set also features 2 bonus tracks – "Primavera" and "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce/Vivo Sonhando". CD

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Scene ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the entire Brazilian scene – but a sweet little set with some wonderful bossa numbers! About half the record features the initial album recorded by Ze Maria – the great Tudo Azul, a lost bossa organ classic – and a set that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a rare gem from early 60s Brazil, and features Ben singing in the same soulful style as on his own early records – dancing lightly over grooves set down by organist Ze Maria, who has a wonderful sound that's a lot like Walter Wanderley! The whole thing's a dream, and features early versions of Ben's own tracks "Mas Que Nada" and "Por Causa De Voce Menina" – plus the tracks "A Vida Do Negro", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Tudo Azul", and "Samba Do Aviao". Other tracks are from a variety of Brazilian sources – and include "Murmurio" by Luiz Bonfa, "Consolacao" by Baden Powell, "Uirapuru" by Heitor Villa Lobos, "Lento" by Radames Gnattali, and "Serenata Do Telecoteco" by Gilberto Gil.

✨✧ VariousVinicius De Moraes – Modernism & Bossa Nova ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that really lives up to its title – especially considering that the music here is virtually the blueprint for the emergence of the modern in Brazilian music during the bossa generation! The collection features a range of different tunes from poet Vinicius De Moraes – an important early collaborator of Antonio Carlos Jobim, and one of the key architects of the bossa sound and spirit during the late 50s! The passage of tracks in the set really shows the evolution of the music – as it begins with more ambitious stage work done by the pair, then moves into a range of beautiful vocal numbers that illustrate all the subtle power of bossa lyricism at its best. Titles include "Um Nome Mulher" by Roberto Pava, "Eu Na Existo Sem Voce" by Silvia Telles & Lucio Alves, "Love & Peace" by Jon Hendricks, "Lamento No Morro Solo" by Luiz Bonfa, "Samba Em Preludio" by Agostinho Dos Santos & Rosana Toledo, "Aqua De Beber" by Ana Lucia, "Valsa De Euridice" by Lenita Bruno, "Chega De Saudade" by Os Cariocas, and "Valsa Do Amor De Nos Dois" by Elza Laranjeira.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful survey of Brazilian instrumental modes at mid-century – a set that moves between choro, samba, and early bossa styles – and also opens up into some other genres as well! The focus here is on key instrumentalists – players with a strong ability to improvise and solo, often in smaller group settings, on shorter tracks that really make them focus on serving up a lot of personality in a very tight space! As with other titles on the Fremeaux label, the package is a wonderful combination of history and listening pleasure – packed with a whopping 63 tracks in all – titles that include "Magoado" by Dilermando Reis, "Chorando Baixinho" by Abel Ferreira, "Monotonia" by Paulo Moura, "Primeiro Amor" by Radames Gnattali, "Grauna" by Jacob Do Bandolim, "Pedacinho Do Ceu" by Waldir Azevedo, "Insonia" by Baden Powell, "Espinha De Bacalhau" by Severino Araujo, "Melancolia" by Luiz Americano, "Luzes Do Rio" by Luis Bonfa, "Encabulado" by Jose Menezes, and "Dinora" by Altamiro Carrilho.
