Maria Bethania & Zeca PagodinhoDe Santo Amaro A Xerem ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
A classic-styled Brazilian live collaboration – a set with solo performances by each of the stars in the lead, and some great duet material together! The approach is one that's been used on Brazilian albums from the earliest records by Elis Regina and Jair Rodriguez – and it's still a fantastic way to present two strong singers in their best light – as Maria Bethania seems to hit a whole new level of warmth when singing alongside Zeca Pagodinho! Arrangements for Zeca's tracks are by Paulao De 7 Cordas, and Maria's are by Jaime Alem – and the set begins and ends with a number of duets, and features solo passages in the middle. Titles include "Sono Meu", "Samba Pras Mocas", "Vai Vadiar", "Adalgisa/Falsa Baiana", "Iluminada", "Pano Legal/Safe Socaite", "Reconvexo", "Gente Humilde", "Amaro A Xerem", "Naquela Mesa", "Desde O Samba E Samba", and "Verdade".

Gal CostaEstratoferica – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A nice little live set that follows off the same sort of energy as the studio album Estratoferica – which has Gal Costa coming across with a more youthful vibe than she's had in years! As with that record, Gal's working here with a group of younger musicians – players who bring more rock currents to the music than you might expect, with especially strong use of electric guitar and keyboards – which Costa matches with a surprising degree of power in her voice! The tunes are pretty straightforward – no Tropicalia experiments here –but the overall approach still feels more 70s MPB than much of Gal's more recent material. Titles include "Meu Nome E Gal", "Estratosferica", "Por Um Fio", "Cabelo", "Quando Voce Olha Pra Ela", "Casca", "Dez Anjos", "Nao Identificado", "Mal Secreto", "Ecstasy", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando", and "Por Baixo".

Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, & RobertoOs Bossa Nova (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2008. New Copy ... $15.99
A really warm and wonderful little record – one that features the collaborative talents of these four bossa nova giants, all coming together in a really relaxed, intimate setting! Although most of these artists didn't work together in the 60s, they all share a very similar spirit, and come together beautifully here – all four working together on the first and last track in the set, then splitting apart to work in smaller duos, and each take a track or two on their own. Instrumentation is mostly small combo, and warmly jazzy – and Valle, Lyra, Menescal, and Donato all handle the arrangements too – furthering the collaborative spirit of the set. Titles include "Balansamba", "Ate Quem Sabe", "Tereza Da Praia", "Ate O Fim", "Bewitched", "Sextante", "Gente", "Vagamente", "De Um Jeito Diferente", and "Ciume". This 2018 version has 2 extra tracks: "Ultimo Aviso" & "Sambeando". 16 in all. CD

Igor EcaEm Casa Com Luiz Eca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. Used ... $7.99
Igor Eca pays tribute to his father – Luiz Eca, one of our favorite Brazilian arrangers of all time! Most folks know Luiz as the pianist and guiding force behind the Tamba Trio – but he's also got a legacy of songwriting, instrumentation, and musical creation that go beyond his recordings with that group – beautifully revived here by the younger Eca on bass, with help from an all-star lineup that includes Toninho Horta on guitar and vocals, Mauro Senise on flute and soprano sax, Itamar Assiere on piano, and Edu Lobo on vocals! Most titles are remakes of key compositions by Luiz Eca – and the style of the album is wonderful – like some of Eca's best work in the post-Tamba years. Titles include "Dolphin", "Imagem", "Alegria De Viver", "Tamba", "Buzios", "Mestre Bimba", and "Reencontro". CD
(Please note there is a small tear in the digipack spine.)

Gilberto GilOk Ok Ok (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Gilberto Gil, Nando Reis, & Gal CostaTrinca De Ases (DVD) ... DVD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... $42.99
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!

Edu Lobo, Romero Lubambo, & Mauro SeniseQuase Memoria ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful meeting these thoughtful Brazilian creative talents – in a mode that provide a perfect backdrop for the vocals of the great Edu Lobo! Lobo's been a sophisticated force from the 60s bossa years onwards – and in recent years, he's gotten even more subtle and personal in his approach – in a way that really comes through here, with his well-phrased original lyrics set up in light instrumental settings that feature the guitar of Romero Lubambo and flute and saxes of Mauro Senise – with occasional guest work from Cristovao Bastos on piano, Kiko Horta on accordion, and Anat Cohen on clarinet. The tunes have all the charms of Lobo's lofty work from the 70s, but in a very different way – and titles include "Rosinha", "Labia", "As Mesmas Historias", "Terro Do Nunca", "Peregrina", "Senhora Do Rio", and "Quase Memoria".

✨✧ Nana CaymmiCanta Tito Madi ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One classic Brazilian talent works in the house of another – as Nana Caymmi takes on the songs of Tito Madi, in a way that really brings them into the present – thanks to the personal, intimate phrasing that Caymmi uses on the set! There's a very strong current of jazz on the record – maybe more so than some of Nana's other albums in recent years – and arrangements are by Cristovao Bastos and Dori Caymmi – both of whom play on the record, often in a stripped-down small group mode that furthers the spirit of Nana's vocals. Dori makes a guest vocal appearance on "Balanco Zona Sul" – and titles include "Carinho E Amor", "Chove La Fora", "Cansei De Ilusoes", "Nao Diga Nao", "E A Chuva Parou", and "Cancao Dos Olhos Tristes".

✨✧ Quarteto MaoganiAlbum Da California ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Chico BuarqueCaravanas – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic live follow-up to the Caravanas album by Chico Buarque – and done at a similar level that shows that Chico's lost none of his charms as the years go by! The set's got the man upfront, singing and playing acoustic guitar – with a combo behind him, kicking up the rhythms in a great way – maybe with a bit more force than on the studio album, as Chico and the group run through an extended lineup of songs that's really great all the way through! The whole thing's a fantastic reminder of the way that Brazilian culture never lets go of its musicians, even as they age – and the musicians themselves continue to grow great as they mature, only rewarding the culture with great gifts like this in the process. Titles include "Casualmente", "Minha Embaixanda Chegou Mambembe", "Dueto", "Injuriado", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Tua Cantiga", "Sabia", "A Historia De Lilly Braun A Bela E A Fera", "Gota D'Agua", and "Geni E O Zepelim".

✨✧ Gal CostaPele Do Futuro ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most upbeat, positive records that Gal Costa has given us in years – a set that really sparkles like its glowing image on the cover! Gal explores a more soulful side of her talents here – with a voice that almost makes us think that decades have rolled back, and we're instead hearing some sort of record that has Costa strongly influenced by American soul, and some other great modes of the 60s and 70s. The presentation is still nicely contemporary, and the set was directed by Pupillo, who's the drummer on the date – and Gal gets guest help on two tracks, one from Maria Bethania, the other from Marilia Mendonca. Titles include "Sublime", "Mae De Todas As Vozes", "Abre Alas Do Verao", "Palavras No Corpo", "Vida Que Segue", "Minha Mae", "Cuidando De Longe", and "Realmente Lindo". CD

✨✧ Edu Lobo, Dori Caymmi, & Marcos ValleEdu, Dori, & Marcos ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Three Brazilian music legends come together in a very unusual project – a record that features famous songs by all three artists, each performed by one of the other singers – in a setting that's got all the sophisticated warmth of the best projects on the Biscoito Fino label! There's an undercurrent of jazz in most of the music – which makes for nice changes from the original versions of the songs – and arrangements here are by Cristovao Bastos, Dori Caymmi, and Marcos Valle – who handles all the songs that feature his own vocals. There's a mature, thoughtful approach to the whole album – perfectly fitting for the list of songs that include "Saveiros", "Velho Piano", "Dos Navegantes", "Corrida De Jangada", "Passa Por Mim", "Canto Triste", "Alegre Menina", "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho", "Na Ilha De Lia No Barco De Rosa", "Viola Enluarda", and "O Amor E Chama".

✨✧ Paula & Jacques MorelenbaumLive In Italy – Omaggio To Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and, as you'd expect from the duo of Paula and Jacques Morelenbaum, a set that's got a very unique flavor overall! The Morelenbaums have always been committed to the little sounds, the simple moments that have made Brazilian music wonderful from the bossa years onward – an approach that found important early flowering in the music of Jobim – and which is recast here in a very special way by the pair. These aren't simple bossa cover versions, nor slavish reworkings of the tunes – and instead, they get very unusual delivery from a trio that features Jacques on cello, plus guitar and drums – instrumentation that really underscores some of the bluer elements in the tunes, with Jacques' "voice" as important as Paula's interpretation of the lyrics. Titles include "Gabriela", "Vivo Sonhando", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Aguas De Marco", "Modinha", "Maracatuesday", and "Eu E O Meu Amor/Lamento No Morro". CD
