✨✧ Arthur VerocaiArthur Verocai ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sweet and jazzy pop from early 70s Brazil – a great little album that we'd rank with our favorites by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo! Arthur Verocai isn't nearly as well-known as those two, but he works in a similar territory – taking jazz, large arrangements, and nice touches of electric funk – and working them into a groove that has the soaring and ambitious feel of the best post-Tropicalia work of 70s Brazil! This rare gem was self-produced, and fell of the map almost as soon as it was released – but it really deserves wider recognition, and shines with a depth that makes it an instant classic to our ears! Titles include "Presente Grego", "Caboclo", "Pelas Sombras", "O Mapa", "Sylvia", "Karina", "Velho Parente", and "Dedicada A Ela". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur VerocaiNo Voo Do Urubu ... LP
SESCSP/Kissing Fish (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album we've heard from Brazilian legend Arthur Verocai in quite awhile – and a set that really lives up to his tremendous legacy of music from the 70s! The album features larger arrangements by Verocai, handled by a top-shelf group of musicians – with Arthur himself on acoustic bass – joined by singers who include Seu Jorge, Vinicius Cantuaria, Mano Brown, Lu Oliveira, Criolo, and Danilo Caymmi – each of whom bring a slightly different flavor to the record, and make the whole thing feel like some of the larger Antonio Carlos Jobim projects, in which varied performances could come together beautifully in a suite of tracks! There's some warm Fender Rhodes amidst the strings and jazzier woodwinds – and the album's maybe worth it alone for Seu Jorge's jaw-dropping performance on "No Voo Do Urubu" – one of his most striking tracks in years – alongside other tunes that include "Cigana", "O Tambor", "Snake Eyes", "Na Malandragem", "Oh Juliana", "Minha Terra Tem Palmeiras", "A Outra", and "O Tempo E O Vento". LP, Vinyl record album

AzymuthButterfly ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2008. Used ... $11.99
Always-great work from Azymuth – one of the few combos who never get stale, no matter how long they keep on grooving! The album's titled after the Herbie Hancock classic "Butterfly" – and it's put together with a sublime quality that really stretches back to the best styles of the 70s fusion generation – both for Herbie and the group! The core trio is still wonderfully in place after all these years – Jose Roberto Bertrami on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, Ivan Conti on drums and percussion, and Alex Malheiros on bass and guitar – and although there's a tiny bit of vocals on the set, they're more instrument-like, and fit in beautifully with the keyboard-driven grooves. Arthur Verocai makes a great appearance on the set on guitar, and also handles arrangements on two cuts – and Robertinho Silva plays some added percussion on the record as well. The group do a wonderful job with Herbie's "Butterfly" – then move onto some of their own great material that includes "Caititu", "Os Cara La", "Morning", "Next Summer In Rio", "New Dawn", and "Avenida Rio Branca". 10 tracks on the CD.

CeliaCelia ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A beautifully groovy album from Celia Reis – maybe the hippest set ever from this Brazilian singer who was equally at home in samba and bossa modes! Production and arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – which will give you an idea of the creativity that went into the record – as Verocai creates all these ambitious grooves that are very much in the best territory of some of the funky Marcos Valle work at the start of the 70s – basslines dipping under strings, all topped with Celia's wonderful vocals – which have a power here that we've never heard on other records – almost a Gal Costa sort of touch! Tracks include tunes by Valle, Verocai, and others – and titles include "Em Familia", "Mia", "Vida De Artista", "Dominus Tecum", "Ay Adelita", "Toda Quarta Feira Depois Do Amor", "A Hora E Essa", "E Preciso Dizer ADeus", and "Badalacao".

CeliaCelia (1970) ... LP
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Wickedly cool work from this overlooked Brazilian singer – a record that's got a strong sense of soul in the grooves, and a great sense of imagination in the choice of songs! Celia sings early work by Joyce, Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, and others – with these shifting arrangements from the likes of Arthur Verocai, Rogerio Duprant, and Jose Briamonte – all in a mish-mash of modes that sometimes echoes the funky styles on EMI/Odeon of the period, sometimes even hits at Tropicalia touches – especially when guitarist Elody is given full run in the music to do his thing! Titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney", "Fotograma", "Adeus Batucada", "To Be", "David", "Durango Kid", "Zozoio Como E Que E", and "Lennon McCartney". LP, Vinyl record album

Gal CostaIndia ... CD
Philips/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz". The whole thing's incredibly beautiful – and it's got Gal in a wild bikini cover, too! CD

✨✧ Sabrina MalheirosNew Morning (deluxe edition) ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2008. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A nicely changed-up version of this sweet Brazilian-tinged set! Sabrina Malheiros just keeps on getting better and better – and she really sparkles wonderfully here in a set of fully soulful backings! The album's put together by Daniel Maunick, aka Venom, and son of Bluey from Incognito – and there's a bit of an Incognito sensibility to the whole thing – a warmly soulful feel, touched with lots of jazzy instrumentation and a deeply classic sensibility – all of which makes for a wonderful setting for Sabrina's Portuguese vocals! Arthur Verocai helped on arrangements, and brings in some beautifully soaring strings – really helping to push the sound past the standard Far Out approach – and the whole thing's one of the most compelling albums we've heard from the label in recent years. This new version features rare singles and remixes – and titles include "Brisa Mar (Nicola Conte re-work)", "Connexao", "Ginga De Amor (unreleased)", "New Morning (Nicola Conte re-work)", "Eira Nem Beira (IG Culture re-work)", "Connexao (Paradiso rework)", "Essa Cancao", "Nova Estacao", "Sintonia (inst)", "Brisa Mar (inst)", and "Alem Do Sol".

✨✧ VariousFar Out Strictly Samba – The Finest Modern Sambas ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Strictly Samba, and strictly great stuff – a mix of contemporary work from the Far Out label and a host of other artists too – almost all of whom work here in a relatively classic mode! Although most of the tunes are recent, they'd fit right next to some of your classic samba sides from years past – thanks to an adherence to rootsy percussion, acoustic instrumentation, and recording techniques that really let the vocals come through strongly – adding a bold sense of soul to the music that really makes it groove. The package is really well done – and the non Far Out tracks make it way more than a straight label sampler – with work that includes "Beleza Beleza Beleza" by Trio Mocoto, "Era Bom" by The Ipanemas, "Maria Jose" by Nereu Mocoto & Swing, "Swingue Do Samba" by Roge, "Foi Um Rio Que Passou Em Minha Vida" by Tereza Cristina E Grupo Semente, "Sorri Pra Nos" by Armando Marcal, "Na Cadencia Do Samba" by Grupo Batuque, "Tudo De Bom" by Arthur Verocai, "Jongo Jade" by Aparecindinha, "Casamento Na Favela" by Zaira, and "Samba De Silvia" by Joyce.
