Arnaldo AntunesQualquer ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $9.99
An amazing set from MPB poet Arnaldo Antunes – possibly his greatest record to date, and one that's done in a deeply introspective style that's really great! The instrumentation here has this sometimes-spacey feel – not cosmic, but almost ethereal – in ways that are still pointed, but flanged-out and somewhat spacious – really adding a nice sense of weight to the lyrics, while also preserving the fluidity of the words. Much of the backing is guitar, but processed slightly – leaving Arnaldo's vocals as the warmer, "human" element of the record to stand out beautifully. As before, there's some help on songwriting from hip associates like Marisa Montes and Carlinhos Brown – and titles include "Sem Voce", "Qualquer", "2 Perdidos", "Acabou Chorare", "Num Dia", "Lua Vermelha", "As Coisas", and "Nossa Bagda".

Gal CostaPele Do Futuro – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... $24.99
Gal Costa somehow looks younger than usual on the cover, and she sounds younger than usual on the set too – a fantastic live album recorded with backing from a tight rock-based combo – in a way that seems to intensify Gal, and bring her back to the gripping sounds of her work in the Tropicalia generation! The instrumentation is lean, and heavy on electric guitar – and Costa's vocals come across with a great sense of power and majesty in the setting – a quality that's perhaps also inspired by the crowd at the concert, who are clearly in love with the lady, and seem to roar with thunderous approval at the start of each new song. Titles include "Lagrimas Negras", "De Um Role", "Azul", "Sublime", "Chuva De Prata", "Motor", "Mae De Todas As Vozes", "Mamae Coragem", "Vaca Profana", "O Que E Que Ha", and "Sua Estupidez". CD

Gilberto Gil, Nando Reis, & Gal CostaTrinca De Ases (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
Three Brazilian musical giants – all coming together in a live setting – and presented in a way that reminds us of some of the great collaborative MPB projects of the 70s! All three artists participate vocally – taking verses alone and together, and frequently trading lines or sharing lyrics – all set to well-crafted backings handled by Gilberto Gil and Nando Reis – with this fantastic collaborative spirit that stands as part of that great legacy of Brazilian music – a field of true giants who are always willing to put their egos aside in a way that so many Anglo musicians still haven't discovered! The sound here is wonderful – far more than the sum of its already-great parts – on titles that include "Perola Negra", "Baby", "All Star", "Palco", "Trinca De Ases", "Dupla De As", "Retiros Espirituais", "Barato Total", "A Gente Precisa Ver O Luar", "Por Onde Andei", and "Nos Barracos Da Cidade". 2DVD set features a documentary on DVD 1 – running over an hour, with English subtitles – and the full show is presented on DVD 2 – 25 songs, almost two hours in length!

Moyseis MarquesPassatempo – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful set of live samba and choro performances from this up-and-coming Brazilian singer – an artist who's younger than most in his field, but who manages to make his music resonate with a strong sense of history, while also reveling in the energy of youth! The album's a well-recorded concert set, with a small combo backing up Moyseis Marques on vocals and guitar – and the whole thing has a very warm sort of flow – especially in collaborative moments from guests who include Chico Buarque, Laila Garin, Joao Martins, and Kiko Horta! Titles include "Ainda Gostas De Mim", "Passatempo", "Suburbio", "Deixa Estar", "Entre Os Girassois", "Profissional", "Amor De Sabia", "Madeixa", and "Poeta E Outro Lance". CD

Quarteto MaoganiAlbum Da California ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautiful album from this Brazilian guitar quartet – one that borrows songs equally from bossa nova and American repertoire – and which features the legendary Sergio Mendes helping them out in the studio! Given the instrumentation, though, these guys hardly need Sergio's help – as they work with a great balance of rhythm and melody, single notes and chords – performed on two 8-string guitars, one 7-string guitar, and a conventional version of the instrument – all acoustic, and occasionally augmented by a bit of percussion, including work by Airto on one track! The sound is really lovely – an evolution of older Brazilian acoustic modes, but still very tied to its roots – and titles include a cool remake of the Joao Donato tune "Bananeira", plus "Cravo E Canela", "I Got Rhythm/Surfboard", "Easy To Love", "Cai Dentro", "Folhas Mortas", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Frevo Rasgado".

✨✧ Mingo SilvaArte De Povo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic samba set from Mingo Silva – a contemporary record, but one with a really timeless feel – and a vocal style from Mingo that really takes us back to some of the more soulful samba singers of the 70s! Silva's got this way of inflecting his words that's instantly captivating – expressing feeling far beyond the boundaries of language, as the instrumentation sticks in a classic samba blend of percussion and stringed instruments, with some occasional chorus vocals joining in on a few cuts! Titles include "Julgamento", "E Lenha", "Arte Do Povo", "Flor Da Lua", "Final Do Infinito", "Boiadeiro Navizala", "Povo Do Aye", and "Formosa". CD

✨✧ Gilberto GilOk Ok Ok (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great record from Gilberto Gil – a Brazilian legend who maybe strayed from his genius a bit in later years, but who's really been back on track of late! Gilberto's wonderful here – very up-close and personal, but also sharply witty too – returning to that energy that made his 70s material so important, with both a sense of the man and his larger ideas coming through in a really great way! There's some acoustic elements in the music at times, a few jazzy touches, and none of those sometimes-obtuse modes that Gilberto might have used 20 years back – just a clean, clear focus on the ever-flowing talents that make a record like this every bit as great as late life material from Caetano Veloso. Titles include "Uma Coisa Bonitinha", "Sereno", "Na Real", "Ok Ok Ok", "Yamandu", "Tartarugue", and "Sol De Maria". CD features bonus tracks "Pela Internet 2", "Kalil", and "Afogamento". CD
