AzymuthCascades/Rapid Transit ... CD
Milestone, 1982/1983. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Sublimely soulful work from Azymuth – 2 albums back to back on a single CD! Cascades is fantastic fusion from a group who just couldn't miss during these early 80s California years! The sound here is smooth, but never slick – always a little offbeat, and quite different from more mainstream US fusion of the time – thanks to the genius of Jose Roberto Bertrami's keyboards, which glide one moment, dip the next, and often have these slight changes in speed that are totally great. Other members of the core trio include Alex Malheiros on bass and guitar and Ivan Conti on drums and percussion – and the set also features guest work by Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica, Jose Carlos on flute, and Sidney Moreira on percussion. Titles include "Remembering Milton", "Club Morocco", "Through The Window", "Festa Nativa", "Cascade Of The Seven Waterfalls", and "Indian Pepper". Rapid Transit is a set with a really warm groove overall – hardly the too-fast, or too-urban record you might expect from the title! Instead, there's a nicely organic sensibility going on here – a sound that feels fresh and spontaneous, even when it's in the highly electric territory of Jose Roberto Bertami's keyboards. There's a slight bit of added flute and percussion on the set, but most of the sounds here are from the core Azymuth trio – who even vocalize wordlessly on one of the album's best tracks. Titles include "Missing Doto", "Make Mine Guarana", "Gate Of Time", "I'm Just Looking Around", "Somewhere In Brazil", and "Afternoon". CD

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with AzymuthAzymuth – Jazz Is Dead 4 ... CD
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic combination of funky grooves – the studio talents of Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and the Brazilian-tinged fusion of the legendary Azymuth! The jazzy trio are in great form here – tunes that are lean, and which really offer up all the best aspects that the group brought to their music back in the late 70s and early 80s – spun with a slightly different format by the lineup of Alex Malheiros on bass, Ivan Mamao Conti on drums, and Linklon Kiko Contentino on Fender Rhodes and keyboards – but handled perfectly by Adrian and Ali in the studio – with just the right sort of sound to avoid some of the slicker production that the group had on some of their other American recordings from years back. All tunes are new originals – and titles include "Pulando Corda", "Friendship Samba", "Apocolyptico", "Cat Jump", "Fall Afternoon", "Ao Redor Do Samba", and "Sumare". CD

✨✧ AzymuthFlame/Spectrum ... CD
Milestone, 1984/1985. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Subtle magic from Azymuth – two mid 80s albums, back to back on a single CD! First up is Flame, a set that nicely lives up to its title – and which shows the strengths the trio picked up during their years in the US! The sound here is round and soulful – a great fusion of the group's roots in the 70s Brazilian fusion scene, and some of the smoother styles of the California one – never in a way that's too soft or commercial. As usual, there's a heavy emphasis on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who also sings a bit in a wordless, scatting sort of way. Flora Purim joins in on vocals on the cut "The Textile Factory" – and other titles include "Tamal Vista Boulevard", "Rapa Poeira", and "Flame (O Amor E Chama)". Spectrum is proof that Azymuth were one of the few groups who could keep things real at a time when most of their fusion contemporaries were sounding cloying and commercial! The album's got a well-rounded sound that really shows the group's roots in the 70s, and their wonderful evolution over the years – that keyboard-heavy sound that's always warm and soulful, and never too tinny or beat-heavy. Jose Roberto Bertrami's keys come across with a 70s warmth that most groups were lacking by this time – and the backing from Alex Maheiros on bass and Ivan Conti is always very subtle, and simple too – swirled up alongside the keyboards, and mixed in with a few occasional bits of guest instrumentation – including trumpet from Marcio Montarroyos on one track, and flugelhorn from Paulinho Olivera on a few more. Titles include versions of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On", Jobim's "Song Of The Jet", and Ivan Lins' "The Island", plus the cuts "Universal Prisoner", "Candomble", and "Areis". CD

✨✧ AzymuthAguia Nao Come Mosca ... LP
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible little record – and the set where it really all comes together for this legendary funky jazz group! Azymuth were already great on their debut, although maybe a little experimental at times – but here, they really find the soulful groove that later got them big fame on the US scene – effortlessly blending their tight jazz skills with a dose of samba soul, and turning out some wonderfully groovy music in the process! There's clearly an influence here from the best years of Earth Wind & Fire – but also more of the edge that you'd expect from the young trio – as the amazing Jose Roberto Bertrami blows us away with his wickedly sharp keyboard solos, as Alexandre Malheiros and Mamao create these beautiful rhythms that go way past anything you might have expected from a trio. The whole thing's wonderful – one of the most soulful Brazilian records of the 70s – and titles include the great cuts "Tarde", "Tamborim Cuica Ganza Berimbau", "Falcon Love Call", and "Aguia Nao Come Mosca".

Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City".

✨✧ AzymuthDemos 1973 to 1975 ... CD
Far Out (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing early work from Azymuth – rare demo recordings done at the home studio of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami, in the short space before the group issued their legendary debut! The tracks here are as much jazz funk as they are the later modes that Azymuth would put forth – killer instrumentals that are really driven by great keyboard lines from Bertrami, who'd already been making music in other formats for years – and who works here on Fender Rhodes, Arp, Clavinet, Hammond, and a range of other keyboards too! The drums are fantastic, too – handled by a young Ivan Conti, who gets help on percussion from an early fourth member of the group, Ariovaldo Contesini – and as you might guess, the incredible basslines of Ivan Mamao Conti really help the whole thing groove. All material is very well-recorded – these aren't rough or unfinished tracks at all – and the whole thing should just be thought of as a first chapter for the group, right before they started putting out their famous records. Titles include "Prefacio", "Castelo", "Melo Do Cuica", "Xingo", "Laranjeiras", "Eqiupe 68", "Unknown Song For Mario Telles", "Manha", "Duro De Roer", "Quem Tem Medo", "Juntos Mais Uma Vez", and "Bateria Do Mamao".

✨✧ AzymuthLight As A Feather (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". CD also features four bonus tracks – "Jazz Carnival (full original mix)", "Avenida Das Manguerias (SS translation by Theo Parrish)", "Jazz Carnival (Yambee rework by Ashley Beedle & Yam Who)", and "Codsall Juniors" by Mark E.

✨✧ Marcos e Sergio Paulo Valle with AzymuthO Fabuloso Fittipaldi – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mercury/Le Vieux Renard (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally rare gem from Marcos Valle – and one of his most unusual recordings! The album is from the soundtrack from a film about the famous Brazilian race car driver Emerson Fittipaldi – and the tracks are a very unusual mix of music by Valle with some spoken passages that might be interviews from the film. You may recognize the theme "Fittipaldi Show", as it's a wonderful groover played by Azymuth that's shown up in a number of comps over the years – and most of the rest of the tracks are played by Azymuth, too – and they have an incredible sound that's very different than the group's later work, and which sounds a lot more like Valle's work from the time. The sound is spacious and soaring, but with lots of jazzy and groovy elements – and titles include "Vinheta I", "Fittipaldi Show", "Vitoria", "Rindt", and "Acidente". LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out (Brazil), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 26.98
A record with an unusual source, but a sound that puts it right up there with some of the most heavenly rare Brazilian albums of the 70s – served up here in a folksy, jazzy mix of acoustic and electric elements – all with help from heavyweights who include Victor Assis Brasil, Mauricio Einhorn, Durval Ferreira, and the Azymuth trio! The songs are based around creations by a Brazilian comedy duo, but they hardly sound anything like that at all – as they're easy-going, mellow-grooving, and have these vocals that flow beautifully amidst percussion, guitar, and keyboards! There are two monologue tracks in Portuguese – both with audience laughter – but all other tracks are sung, and delivered with some wonderful arrangements by Jose Roberto Bertrami and Jose Menezes. Titles include "Negra Brecho", "Ao Billilico", "Tema Do Azambuja", "A Turma", "Verde", "Maristela", and "O Poste Da Rua Jorge De Lima". LP, Vinyl record album

Jose Roberto BertramiDreams Are Real ... LP
Milestone, 1984. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Soaring keyboard work from Jose Roberto Bertrami of Azymuth – done with a sound that's slightly smooth – keyboards that show a bit more of a mid 80s sound, but still recorded with the sense of soul and space that makes Bertrami so great! There's a gently flowing quality to most of these tracks – not over the top fusion, but more relaxed in construction, and with an even blend of Brazilian influences and California modes. There's a bit of vocals on the set – some from Bertrami, some from Flora Purim – and other players include Robertinho Silva, Nico Assumpcao, Jota Moraes, and Durval Ferreira. Titles include "Nova Ipanema", "Dreams Are Real", "Sad For Both Of Us", "Saudade", and "A Big Hug For Nelson Piquet". LP, Vinyl record album

Jose Roberto BertramiThings Are Different ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2001. New Copy ... $4.99
New work from the legendary founder of Azymuth! Jose Roberto Bertrami's keyboards have graced dozens of Brazilian jazz sessions over the past 30 years – not only with his famous combo Azymuth, but also on albums by other Brazilian singers and instrumentalists of the 70s and 80s. This new set on Far Out is Bertrami's first under his own name for the label – and although Azymuth have recorded often for Far Out, this album's got a feel that's quite different from their work. Bertrami's going for a smooth glossy finish here – working keyboard magic over sly soulful grooves, hitting a vibe that reminds us a lot of classic work by 70s Americans like Bobby Lyle or Rodney Franklin, showing that Bertrami's got more than a bit of soul in his work, when he's given the chance to show it off. Titles include "Bluff Dancing", "Tarde Em Itacuruca", "Dificil Te Dizer", "Things Are Different", "Partido Alto No 3", "Mamao Com Acucar", and "Ceu E Mar". CD

A really fantastic trio from Brazil – one who work in a very classic Azymuth mode of electric piano, bass, and drums! The tunes are nicely open, and have a tremendous sense of flow – jazz, to be sure – but with lots of focus on the rhythms, which often have this slow funk quality that's equally appealing to ears raised on hip hop or funk! Henrique Gomide handles the electric piano and other keys, with drums from Joao Fideles and bass from Noa Stroeter – a mighty tight trio that you'll fall in love with right away!

Ivan Mamao ContiPoison Fruit ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Really mindblowing work from legendary drummer Ivan "Mamao" Conti – a key part of Azymuth through that group's many years – and still going strong here as a solo artist on his own! The album's almost a 21st Century realization of the sound that Azymuth was going for back in the day – cascading percussion with plenty of influences from Brazilian music and jazz, often given some electric elements along the way – but always in a style that's warmly organic, and right on the groove! Conti gets help from younger Azymuth and Incognito generations – as Alex Malherios plays bass on the record and Daniel Maunick handles keyboards, more percussion, and production – all at a level that never stomps on Ivan's vision at all – and which instead makes the whole thing as rewarding as any Azymuth session we've heard over the past few decades. Most tracks are instrumental, save for some airy wordless vocals – but Thiago Martins sings lead on "Que Legal", and other titles include "Aroeira", "Bacurau", "Poison Fruit", "Jemburi", "Ecos Da Mata", "Encontro", and "Tempestades". CD features bonus mixes – "Ilha Da Luz (Tenderlonius rmx)", "Encontro (Glenn Astro rmx)", "Que Legal (Reginald Omas Mamode IV rmx)", "Encontro (Max Graef rmx)", and "Poison Fruit (Dokta Venom's digital dub rmx)".

Fantastic sounds from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – a group with family ties to Azymuth and Incognito, and who work here in the best blend of Brazilian and soulful elements that might imply! The ensemble is a crowning achievement for the Far Out label – a summation of all the great work they've done from the London scene, including their reintroduction of key Brazilian musicians of the 70s – all soaring to the skies here, with a richly collaborative energy! The group features lots of keyboards from Jose Roberto Bertrami, guitars from Alex Malheiros, and keyboards and rhythms from Daniel Maunick – plus great contributions from many others, including some help from the legendary Arthur Verocai. Most tunes groove in a mighty nice way – not vintage disco, but a soaring, righteous 21st Century version of club – on tunes that include "Step Into My Life", "Flying High", "Black Sun", "The Two Of Us", "Walking Bass", "Give It To Me", and "Where Do We Go From Here".

A really wonderful project that was years in the making – a mix of American club and Brazilian elements – put together by a group that includes members of Azymuth and Banda Black Rio, as well as the legendary Arthur Verocai! Jose Roberto Bertrami's the strongest contributor here – and the music really echoes that great late 70s/early 80s point when the Azymuth fusion groove crossed over into tighter, funkier territory – coming off here with a sound that's got really universal appeal and a wickedly classic vibe overall – like some unusual cross-breeding of Brazilian grooves and Salsoul Records! Vocals are by Mia Mendes and Marcina Arnold, but the instrumentation is even better than the lyrics – filled with jazzy touches, blended with bits of strings, and perfectly produced all the way through. Really tremendous stuff – one of the freshest records we've heard from Far Out in years – with titles that include "Mystery", "Keep Believing", "Dead Dance", "The Last Carnival", "A Disco Supreme", "Vendetta", and "Don't Cha Know He's Alright". 2CD set features 8 more bonus remix tracks too!

A classic masterpiece from J Dilla – a record that set the tone for countless hip hop releases in years to come – but which still shows Jay Dee as one of the smartest, sharpest, most forward-thinking producers to rule the roost! The set's got some incredible live instrumentation – lots of funky drums from Karriem Riggins, and a wealth of Fender Rhodes and other keyboards from Dwele – two artists brought along from the Detroit underground by Dilla, in a lineup that also includes work from Frank N Dank, Blu, Phat Kat, and Beej. The whole thing is fantastic, this amazing blend of instrumentals and vocal numbers that show that hip hop had plenty of new territory to open up in the 21st century – on titles that even include tributes to some key inspirations – like "African Rhythms" (Oneness of Juju), "Brazilian Groove" (Earth Wind & Fire), and "Think Twice" (Donald Byrd). The whole thing is classic – and other cuts include "Rico Suave Bossa Nova", "Shake It Down", "Give it Up", "The Clapper", and "Come Get It". Incredible package – way more than just the album on funky 45s – as the set features 37 tracks in all, with instrumentals, alternates, and other gems!

Beautiful grooves from Alex Malheiros – best known for his bass work in Azymuth, but stepping out here in a warm and wonderful set of his own! The groove here really takes us back to the sunny, soulful fusion we first loved when Azymuth hit the scene in the 70s – and Malheiros' guidance of the groove is really felt strongly in the album's warm-rolling basslines – a beautiful complement to a lineup that also includes Fender Rhodes, tenor, soprano sax, flute, trumpet, and trombone – plus a bit of occasional vocals from Sabrina Malheiros! Production is wonderful – handled by Daniel Maunick with some of the warmth of his Incognito work – and IG Culture comes in at the end to remix four of the album's tracks – almost creating a mini-modern suite to complement to the core 70s vibe of the record. Titles include "The Wave", "Corpo", "Copa A Noite", "Solar", "Sem Pressa", "Baixo Partido", "Serenity", "Uno Esta", and "4 Eyed Viper" – plus remixes of "The Wave" and "Uno Esta", the latter of which is a version of the Bobbi Humphrey classic!

Keyboardist Marcos Resende never hit the kind of fame he deserved, but that also allowed him to be one of the most creative players on his scene – as he never had to go for crossover fusion material, and instead was able to let loose in amazing ways on a record like this – blending work on Fender Rhodes with other keyboards – in a quartet that features Rubao Sabino on bass, Claudio Caribe on drums, and Oberdan Magalhaes on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The mix of reeds and keys is wonderful – spun out freely, but always with a strong sense of rhythm – that soaring, joyous approach to jazz that makes the best Brazilian albums of the period so wonderful.

Far Out (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
A joyous celebration of the mighty Far Out label – now over a decade old, and still one of the most freshly creative companies around! Far Out is the brainchild of London DJ Joe Davis, who has a great way of bringing together older bossa-styled grooves with a fresher take on the genre. Joe's approach is really unique, and it's one that's neither subject with the overdone bossa-remix cliches that have cluttered the market in recent years, nor the too-sleepy bossa-revival jazz that's always nice to hear, but never that exciting. Far Out really has a tremendous way of putting over a groove – one that lets the artist work at their own pace, but which also seems to push them a bit further than they might otherwise go – a fact that's certainly apparent in the label's ability to revitalize the careers of older artists like Marcos Valle, Joyce, and Azymuth! The 16 track set features 5 previously unreleased tracks, plus some other overlooked treasures for the label – all very nicely packaged at a low low price! Titles include "O Tempo Samba" by Grupo Batuque, "Demoro" by Joyce, "Tanto Tempo (unplugged)" by Vertente, "Space Carnival (Global Communications rmx)" by Azymuth, "Nao Quero Nem Saber" by Sabrina Malheiros, "Agua" by Nina & Chris, "Espada De Prate" by Celia Vaz & APE, "Pez" by Troubleman, and "Valeu (4 Hero rmx)" by Marcos Valle & Joyce.

Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest records ever by Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! The album was recorded at the end of the 70s, and has a sound that's a lot like the best fusion work by Azymuth – a great mix of jazz and funk, plus more dynamic Brazilian elements – all wrapped together in a way that a rare few hybrids do this well! There's great keyboards right up front in the mix – and the backing has some tight percussion that crackles along and gives the album a heavy bottom and a great groove. The album was originally only issued on the tiny Artezanal label – but it feels like a lost gem from the classic funk years at Fantasy Records – internationally funky, far past just a Brazilian music gem.

✨✧ Jose Roberto Bertrami & His Modern SoundAventura ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A different groove than usual for Jose Roberto Bertrami – and a record that definitely lives up to the promise of its title! Bertrami's really broken free from the regular Azymuth groove on this set – much more so than on some of his recent solo albums – playing here with a vibe that's very jazzy at times, with a range of different modes – mod one minute, funky the next, and sweetly straight at other points! Jose Roberto handles his familiar Fender Rhodes on most tracks – but also plays a bit of organ and acoustic piano as well – and other instrumentation includes guitar, bass, and drums – plus added horns on some of the fuller, funkier tracks. A few tunes feature some great wordless vocals from Bertrami – scatting along with his keyboards in a warm and breezy way – and production on the set is great, thanks to the Far Out touch – never too smooth, and quite different from any of Bertrami's albums recorded in the US. Titles include "Laranjeiras", "Choro", "No Tempo Da Bossa", "O Pescador", "Ecstatic 70", "Brilliante", "Eighties Times", "Aventura", and "Maixa". CD

Rittor (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet sweet discography on 70s electric jazz – one that's every bit as cool as the more classic entries in this series!

The book features a few longer essays in Japanese on Norman Connors, Azymuth, Roy Ayers, George Duke, and Deodato – which will give you an idea of the focus, even if you can't read the text.

✨✧ Marcos Resende & IndexMarcos Resende & Index ... LP
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A Brazilian jazz keyboard masterpiece – a set you can put right up there next to the earliest records by Azymuth, even though this one's much more obscure! Keyboardist Marcos Resende never hit the kind of fame he deserved, but that also allowed him to be one of the most creative players on his scene – as he never had to go for crossover fusion material, and instead was able to let loose in amazing ways on a record like this – blending work on Fender Rhodes with other keyboards – in a quartet that features Rubao Sabino on bass, Claudio Caribe on drums, and Oberdan Magalhaes on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The mix of reeds and keys is wonderful – spun out freely, but always with a strong sense of rhythm – that soaring, joyous approach to jazz that makes the best Brazilian albums of the period so wonderful. Titles include "Behind The Moon", "Martinha", "Nina Nenem", "My Heart", "Nergal", and "Praca De Alegria". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur VerocaiEncore ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous new work from Arthur Verocai – the Brazilian legend who's best remembered for his sublime self-titled album from the 70s, but who sounds equally great on this contemporary release! The record has a really classic feel overall – warm, soulful, and filled with plenty of jazzy touches – the best of which are brought to the record by Azymuth, who help Verocai out on about half the album's tracks! But even without their assistance, the whole thing's still plenty darn great – a brilliant batch of original tunes that have a bubbling, mellow sort of majesty – a bit like Marcos Valle or Edu Lobo's best music of the early 70s, and with a similar sort of sophistication as well. Verocai plays acoustic and electric guitar, and vocals are by a variety of guest singers who really get the spirit of the album nicely (including Ivan Lins on one track.) Titles include "Tupa Tupi", "Sucuri", "Abertura", "Bis", "Amor Na Contra Mao", "Caminho Da Roca", "Tudo De Bom", and "Dona Das Meninas". CD

✨✧ VariousBrazil Funk Power – Brazilian Funk & Samba Soul (5 x 7 inch box set) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 5 x 7" ... Out Of Stock
A killer package of work from some of the funkiest years on the Brazilian music scene – that great 70s moment when the nation exploded with fresh sounds borrowed from American artists, then completely changed over by unique instrumental styles and production modes! Some of the work is a bit jazzy – second generation expressions of earlier bossa artists, getting funky – other cuts put the vocals to the forefront, and show the world that Brazil had some pretty great soul singers of its own – and as you can expect with Soul Jazz, the presentation and choice of tracks is superb. Titles include "Trinido Trincando" by Novos Baianos, "Onda" by Cassiano, "Gostava Tanto De Voce" by Tim Maia, "Taj Mahal" by Jorge Ben, "Manha" by Azymuth, "Whistle Stop" by Donato & Deodato, "Meus Filhos Meu Tesouro" by Jorge Ben, "O Comeco Da Festa" by Luiz Gonzaga Jr, and "Nova Dia" by Brazil Ritmo. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousDisco E Cultura Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mad About Records (Portugal), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from Brazil – the kind of cuts you'll totally dig if you love the classic work of Banda Black Rio and Azymuth – but which are even more obscure! The collection's a great one – full of tracks that blend together funky rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and that special sunny flavor of soul music that Brazil was turning out after the samba soul generation – wonderful work that shows that the scene down there had plenty of groups who would have given Earth Wind & Fire a run for their money, had they had any access to American audiences! Titles include "Pode Acreditar" by Grupo Natureza, "Passaro Selvagem" by Os Carbonos, "Tema R" by Aloisio, "Brazil Very Happy Band" by Brazil Very Happy Band, "Se Voce For A Salvador" by Brilho, "Sol De Verao" by Lafayette, "Deixa" by Cornelius, "Vida Agitada" by Paul Jeronimo, and "Contigo" by Adriana.

✨✧ VariousOff The Shelf – A Selection Of Tracks From Far Out & Solaria Singles Archive ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2002. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the most important labels of the past few years – the groundbreaking Far Out imprint, known for its unique style of blending Brazilian and London grooves! The set features tracks from Far Out's oft-deleted singles series – hard to find 12" releases that often get only short release, and disappear much more quickly than the rest of the label's catalog. If you've missed some of these gems, or if you're like us, and sometimes prefer to put on a full album and save yourself flipping wax, the set's a great way to catch up – and probably introduce yourself to loads of great new music. Titles include "Khameleon" and "Second Future" by Difusion, "Ponteio" by Da Lata, "Colours" by Big Bang, "Smile" by Nature's Plan, "Strike Hard" by Trouble Man, "Brazil (Brazilian reprise)" by Democustico, "Faca De Conta (Roni Size rmx)" by Azymuth, "E Ruim/The Samba (4 Hero rmx)" by Grupo Batuque, and "Banzo Theme" by Banzo.

✨✧ Kirk Degiorgio Presents SambatekSambatek ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brazilian percussion mixed with 21st Century sounds – all served up sublimely in the hands of Kirk Degiorgio – one of the few artists we could ever expect to get a project like this just right! The album follows nicely off Kirk's previous collaboration with Azymuth – but has an even starker sound overall, as core acoustic percussion bits are worked into contemporary rhythm programs – then topped with some of the crackling electric touches that you'd expect – often with a warmer sound than other projects of this nature, but a groove that's plenty driving overall. Titles include "Babilonia", "Morro Da Formiga", "Dende", "Borel", "Vidigal", "Rocinha", "Prazeres", and "Complexo Do Alemao" – plus remixes "Babilonia (Rick Wilhite dub)", "Borel (Jonas Kopp my vision of samba rmx)", and "Borel (Nxi rmx)".

✨✧ VariousFar Out Bossa Nova – A Collection Of Far Out's Finest Bossas To Celebrate 50 Years Of Bossa Nova ... CD
Far Out (UK), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer contemporary bossa from the Far Out label – easily one of the hippest Brazilian imprints going, and one of the few who really manage to get a classic sound right! The tracks here are pulled from the wealth of recent recordings on Far Out, and together they really demonstrate the label's strong approach to bossa nova – a short but rich recording legacy that draws on plenty of classic elements, yet also manages to update the music slightly – yet never with any sort of easy tricks or gimmicks! Some of the tracks are by older Brazilian artists, a few others by newcomers to the music – and they all really illustrate the respect and love for its artists that mark the operations of Far Out. Titles include "Berimbau" by Joyce, "Keep An Eye On Love" by Zeep, "Nova Bossa Nova" by Marcos Valle, "Filhos" by Athur Verocai with Ivan Lins, "Rejoycing" by Democustico, "Pro Bonfa" by Celia Vaz, "San Roque" by Os Ipanemas, "Pra Ze" by Azymuth with Roberto Menescal, "Dindi" by Victor Assis Brasil, "Vem Moreno Vem" by Celia Vaz, "Meu Samba Torto" by Clara Moreno, and "It's Too Late" by Sabrina Malheiros.

✨✧ Odair JoseO Filho De Jose E Maria (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet 70s set from Odair Jose – a record that's got a nicely laidback blend of keyboards, guitars, and Odair's excellent vocals – all put together with help from some of the most soulful talents on the scene at the time! The record features keyboards from Jose Roberto Bertrami, guitars from Jaime Alem and Hyldon, drums from Ivan Mamao Conti, and Fender Rhodes from Robson Jorge – all working together in a blend of the jazziness of Azymuth with some of the more soulful elements that you'd hear from some of Hyldon's music. There's a bit of processing on Odair's vocals at a few points, in a very cool way – and titles include "O Casamento", "Que Loucura", "O Sonho Terminou", "Nunca Mais", "Fora Da Realidade", "Nao Me Venda Grilos", and "So Pra Mim Pra Mais Ninguem".
