Eumir DeodatoInutil Paisagem ... LP
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! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano – with backing that is extremely light and subtle. Roberto Quartin was the artistic director on the session, and the album includes a lot of the same whimsical touches he brought to his work on the Forma and Quartin labels. The set's filled with loads of great tracks like "Insensatez", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Amor Em Paz". LP, Vinyl record album

Edu Lobo with The Tamba TrioEdu Lobo Por Edu Lobo ... LP
Elenco/Audio Clarity (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
One of the greatest early albums from Edu Lobo – a groundbreaking set that has Lobo's vocals and guitar backed with sublime sounds from the Tamba Trio! As on their own records, the Tamba Trio harmonize wonderfully – letting Edu's vocals take the lead, but supporting him with those heavenly, airy tones that we totally love. The trio also provides instrumental backing too – a blend of bossa piano, bass, and drums – used strongly to emphasize the best moments in Lobo's compositions, in ways that hint at some of the more baroque turns his music would take in the 70s. There's a mix of ambitious sound and personal expression here that's simply breathtaking – and the album still features some of the best readings ever of Lobo tunes like "Boranda", "Reza", "Cheganca", and "Zambi". Other titles include "Em Tempo De Adues", "Cancao Do Amanhecer", "Requiem Para Amor", and "Cancao Da Terra". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jorge BenSilencio No Brooklin ... LP
Rozenblit/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 1 ... LP
RGE/Audio Clarity (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ Flora PurimFlora e MPM ... LP
RCA/Audio Clarity (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
