AirtoI'm Fine, How Are You? ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99

Sunnyside, 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A set dedicated to the memory of Antonio Carlos Jobim, but one that's hardly just the usual variation on his classic numbers – as only a few tunes here are actually by the composer, and all of the music has that fresh sort of sparkle that we always love in the Brazilian jazz material from ...

Brasilianos (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99
Some of the sharpest jazz work we've heard from Hamilton De Holanda in awhile – a quartet session that has a bit more edge than some of his other records, and which uses his work on bandolim in the lead as a very powerful solo instrument!

Two post-CTI gems from Deodato – back to back on a single CD!

Philips/Audio Clarity (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time!

Wicked samba from Djalma Dias – served up with a nice undercurrent of soul on a few tracks, too! Waltel Branco handles the arrangements, and gives the record a great little groove – one that's a mix of percussive samba elements and fuller backings at points – very lively overall, ... read more CD

The cover definitely reflects that 80s origin of the album – but as usual with Djavan, there's a lot more depth here going on than most of his contemporaries ever had to offer!
