Jorge BenSilencio No Brooklin ... LP
Rozenblit/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and soul influences that he brought to his first big hits – but recorded here in a way that's maybe even more frenetic, especially when piano lines spin out quickly next to his incredible vocals – with a style that's almost soul jazz at times! The whole thing's wonderful – a record that matches, if not tops any of his other 60s albums – and titles include the killer "A Jovem Samba" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Nascimento De Um Principe Africando", "Menina Gata Augusta", "Si Wanda", "Rosa Mas Que Nada", "Amor De Carnaval", and "Todo Colorida". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 1 ... LP
RGE/Audio Clarity (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
The debut of a legend – Chico Buarque's first album for RGE, and a groundbreaking batch of tunes that helped shape the sound of popular music in Brazil for years to come! Buarque predates the Tropicalia era, but is working here in a style that clearly allowed for their later impact – a mode that draws on styles from bossa, folklore, and samba – but which somehow manages to rise into a groove that's all its own. Buarque's genius can immediately be summed up in classics on the set – like "Pedro Pedreiro", "A Rita", "Tem Mais Samba", "A Banda", and "Ole Ola" – all wonderful numbers that make the album an essential one in any collection!

London Jazz FourElizabethan Songbook ... LP
Audio Clarity (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Quite an unusual record from this hip London combo of the 60s – every bit as compelling as their Beatles album, but in a very different way! As the title implies, most songs are from Elizabethan sources – but they're played with an open, modal sort of groove – the more sensitive, lyrical side of the London jazz scene in the 60s – often mixing these brilliant acoustic basslines with light drums, piano, and flute – all to create a fluid groove with plenty of jazz, even when the core sources of the music are quite ancient! Given the light instrumentation, things are quite different from other jazz/classical experiments of the 60s – very far from the cliches you might expect. Titles include "Rondeau", "The Old Spagnoletta", "Flow My Tears", "Orientis", "Roundelay", "The Earle Of Salisbury", and "Green Grows The Holly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Flora PurimFlora e MPM ... LP
RCA/Audio Clarity (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
The amazing first album from Flora Purim – recorded years before the Brazilian jazz singer would rise to much greater fame on the global scene! Here, Flora's stepping off of the late bossa years – working in a mode that recalls some of the jazzier bossa singers of the time, but also maybe stretching things out too – so that she's already beginning to show some of those amazing vocal talents that would make Purim an undeniable force in jazz, soul, and other Brazilian styles in the 70s. The set features arrangements by a very hip cast – Edu Lobo, Roberto Menescal, and others – with backing by a jazzy lineup that features Meirelles on tenor, Paulo Moura on alto, Dom Salvador on piano, and Rosinha De Valenca on guitar – on titles that include "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal", "Sabe Voce", "Maria Moita", "Reza", and "Gente".

✨✧ Mike Taylor TrioTrio ... LP
Philips/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A lost set of modernist piano jazz from the British scene of the late 60s – very much in the mode of the best American work of the time by pianists like Steve Kuhn or Don Friedman! Taylor's got an incredible touch on the keys – a post-Bill Evans mode that uses space as much a sound, and which paints in broad colors and tones that seem to glisten in their own unique place in the musical spectrum. The sound is free, but never too "out" – and the trio performs a number of strong originals like "Just A Blues", "Two Autumns", "Guru", and "Abena" – plus completely transformed versions of "Stella By Starlight" and "All The Things You Are".

✨✧ Mike WestbrookRelease ... LP
Deram/Audio Clarity (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A rarity from 1968 – Mike Westbrook's 2nd album, and a seminal work in the development of his messed-up large group style. On the outside, this is a big band recording, featuring a lineup of great Brit players that includes John Surman, Mike Osborne, Paul Rutherford, and others. Yet although Westbrook has clearly been influenced by modern large group arrangers like Gil Evans and Mingus, he's also throwing in a lot of New York avant ideas here, mixed with some of the brilliant cultural crossover styles that were brewing in London at the time. The record's tough to describe, but it's got an amazing mix of styles that rumbles through a range of material that includes originals like "The Few", "We Salute You", and "Take Me Back" – plus odd covers like "Sugar", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Lover Man". An amazing extended journey that never lets up for a second! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wilson Das Neves E ConjuntoSom Quente E O Das Neves ... LP
Polydor/Audio Clarity (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky killer from this hip Brazilian drummer – with his always great percussive vibe touched nicely by Cali soul and funk influences! There's a really great mix of modes on this one. The percussion is prominent, of course, often with a funk steeped bass groove, killer horns, nice guitar grooves and some soaring strings with the moment calls for it. A couple of standouts are the funkiest numbers – a great take on "Soulful Strut", which closes the set, plus a breezy cover of "California Soul" – but the whole thing is great! Other titles include "Wilsamba", "Sambaloo", "Se Voce Pensa", "Zazueira", and a fantastic instrumental version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mike WestbrookMarching Song Vol 1 ... LP
Deram/Audio Clarity (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The brilliant 3rd album from Mike Westbrook – a sharp-edged, two volume set with a scathing anti-war theme! The work is Westbrook's first total-concept album, and it's still one of his best – written with an edge that's free from some of the more whimsical touches that showed up in Mike's later years, and played by a core group of British avant soloists with searing intensity! You've never heard large group scoring like this – bold, ambitious, and quite different than most of what's come before. And although the whole thing sounds as if it's going to fall apart at any moment, it always snaps back into a sharp focus just in the nick of time – with brilliant results that bring the same sense of surprise that you might get from, say, a classic album from Charles Mingus or Archie Shepp! Players include Kenny Wheeler and Henry Lowther on trumpets, Mike Gibbs and Paul Rutherford on trombones, John Surman on baritone and soprano sax, Mike Osborne on alto and clarinet, Alan Skidmore on tenor and flute, Brian Smith on tenor, and Harry Miller and Barre Phillips on bass. Titles on this first volume include "Landscape", "Hooray", "Other World", and "Marching Song". LP, Vinyl record album
