Jorge NavarroNavarro Con Polenta (with bonus download) ... LP
Aleluya/Altercat (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Fantastic funky fusion from the 70s Argentine scene – a set that begins with a killer take on the Led Zeppelin tune "Black Dog", and only gets even groovier after that! Jorge Navarro leads the group on piano, Hammond, and Fender Rhodes – and the group is a tight combo with guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – shifting rhythms nicely to match the dynamic mood of Jorge's work on the keyboard – as he moves through 70s fusion styles and Latin jazz in a wonderful array of grooves! At times, Navarro's not afraid to use some funky phrasing on his electric keys – ala Herbie Hancock – and at other times, he's way down in the groove and really going to town. Titles include "Funk Yourself", "Black Dog", "Vamos Quedando Pocos", "Lucky Southern", "Despues De La Polenta", and "Repartamos El Funky". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download and a nice booklet of notes!)

Viejas Raices (Jorge Lopez Ruiz & Pocho Lapouble)Viejas Raices De Las Colonias del Rio De La Plata ... CD
Trova/Altercat (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from this legendary Argentine pianist – a set that has Jorge Lopez Ruiz playing lots of Fender Rhodes, and mixing it in with both rootsy Latin percussion and a number of other keyboards too! The set's almost a South American version of some of Herbie Hancock's work with the Headhunters – with more traditional percussion passages in the mix, but blended with sounds that include Arp and mini-moog too – which gives the whole thing a criss-crossing vibe that alternates from the surface of the planet to the deeper ranges of the cosmos! Ruiz is wonderful throughout – often very spacious, in a thoughtful way that only makes each note have more power – and titles include "La Hora De La Sed Maldita", "Eterna Prescencia", "Mira Tu", "El Viaje De Dumpty", "Balewada", and "Para Nostros Solamente".

Nana Vasconcelos & Agustin Pereyra LucenaIncredible Nana ... CD
Tonodisc/Altercat (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the earliest recordings of Brazilian percussionist Nana Vasconcelos – an artist who'd go on to have a huge history in jazz, including famous work with Pat Metheny on ECM! This set has Nana very much in his roots – playing first on a stunning solo percussion track that mixes melodic sounds on cuica with a whole host of other percussion instruments – then joining in this sublime improvisation with guitarist Agustin Pereyra Lucena – another favorite player of ours, and one who normally never records in such a stripped down mode! The mixture of percussion and guitar is fantastic – full of fresh ideas, and a great showcase for Lucena – who then takes off on two shorter solo tracks too. Titles include "Concerto Pra Mae Bio", "Improvisacao", "Tempo Feliz", and "Conversa Do Poeta". CD

✨✧ WertherWerther ... LP
Stylo/Altercat (Germany), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost late bossa gem from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – served up by a singer with an acoustic guitar, but in a way that's a lot more complex than bossa nova records of the 60s! Werther works here in territory that's a bit like Joyce or Edu Lobo at the time – music that uses the core elements of a generation before, but in ways that open up in a range of different moods – sometimes with larger arrangements providing some of the complexity, sometimes with qualities that come from the singer himself – especially when his lead vocals are given some sublime harmony backup. The sense of sound balance and tone is superb – like some of the territory that Marcos Valle or Arthur Verocai were exploring at the time – and titles include "Lenda", "Rei Do Chao", "Terca Feira", "Leilao", "Catavento", "Mudanca", "Ave Maria", and "Dimensao".

✨✧ Carioca & DevasMisterios Da Amazonia ... LP
Atonal Producoes/Altercat (Germany), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A Brazilian album from the start of the 80s, but one recorded in an all-acoustic mode that makes the whole thing tremendously timeless over the years! Ronaldo L Freitas is the guitarist pictured on the front – and he provides these amazing guitar lines that have all the deftness of the best bossa or flamenco jazz performers, but in a very different mode – as they're mixed with rootsy percussion, bits of flute, and recorded with a nicely fresh production style that has the whole thing kind of bubbling and brewing in a really organic way! The whole thing's a fantastic meeting of Brazilian roots and post-bossa modernism – and the vocals are often wordless, and used as a further instrument next to the guitar and percussion. Tremendous throughout – with titles that include the side-long title track – "Misterios Da Amazonia" – plus "Canto Dos Pescadores", "Amanhecendo", and "Manha Oriental". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Afrodyssey OrchestraUnder The Sun (with download) ... LP
Altercat (Germany), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great diaspora sounds from Afrodyssey Orchestra – a group who bring so much more to their music than most of their contemporaries – in ways that both tap into their native cultural history in Greece, and really open up some of the deeper jazz currents of their songs! Instrumentation includes the percussion elements you might expect – but we're even more captivated by the work on keyboards and tenor – which really sparkle throughout, and which make the record often feel like some futurist fusion reimagining of Afro Funk inspirations – with a nice lean sound that's more small combo than "orchestra"! Titles include "One For Ry", "Under The Sun", "Sisters & Brothers", "Three Tigers & Three Baby Tigers", "Soil Festivities", and "Mama Africa". LP, Vinyl record album
