Maria BethaniaMariacotinha Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A brilliant new live set from Maria Bethania – one recorded with all the drama and glory of her classic live albums of the 70s! The set's an extension of Maria's Maricotinha album of recent years – and like that one, it features some excellent backings by Jaime Alem, a supremely rich talent whose work is always a treat. Alem handles Maria perfectly here – never letting her go too far off the deep end, but really setting free her richly emotive style. The set's quite long – with 49 tracks spread over 2 CDs – all lovingly packaged, and very well recorded! CD

Maria BethaniaMy Backyard (aka Meus Quintais) ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2014. Used ... $9.99
One of the most personal albums we've heard in years from Maria Bethania – a set that's got a quietly intimate vibe, one that really lives up to the spirit of the title – a place where Bethania can be herself and share some of her innermost thoughts! The backing is wonderfully intimate – usually just a bit of samba-styled percussion or guitar, but taken at a very slow pace – and Maria's vocals, while still having the majesty of other records, also come across with a more up-close spirit overall – one we find surprisingly moving, even after all these many years of loving her music. Titles include "Moda Da Onca", "Arco Da Velha India", "Candeiro Velho", "Alguma Voz", "Xavante", "Mae Maria", and "Povos Do Brazil". CD

Chico BuarqueCarioca (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $6.99
Tremendous work from an artist whose talents never dim over the years – and even then, a set that's quite possibly one of Chico's best in many many years! The record has a depth and complexity that's really wonderful – like the best of Caetano Veloso's more sophisticated work of the past decade – and Chico's working here with arranger Luiz Claudio Ramos in a set of tracks that mix rootsy instrumentation with more complicated phrasing – a style that carries echoes of some of Edu Lobo's best 70s material, and which, like that, has a genre-less quality that's all its own! Chico's original lyrics and raspy vocals would be enough to make this record great, but the instrumentation takes it to a space that's even more special. Tracks include "Suburbio", "Outros Sonhos", "As Atrizes", "Renata Maria", "Leve", "Sempre", "Imagina", "Dura Na Queda", and "Ode Aos Ratos". CD

Chico BuarqueChico (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $9.99
Damn – a heck of a treat! Chico Buarque's one of those artists we never take for granted – and although we've been loving his music for decades, we've also been surprised for that long at how consistently great it is – especially during his maturing years, when he really seems to have hit a whole new level of genius! A set like this is a perfect illustration of that fact – simple numbers with a mostly acoustic instrumental approach – yet put together with a subtle sort of complexity that really sets them apart! The tunes are timeless at some level, yet completely fresh at another – similar to some of Caetano Veloso's best work in later small combo modes – and as always, Chico's vocals alone are completely sublime – full of more than enough feeling and humanity to cross the boundaries of language. Luiz Claudio Ramos handled the great arrangements for the album – and titles include "Rubato", "Tipo Um Baiao", "Sinha", "Nina", "Sou Eu", "Sem Voce 2", and "Querido Diario". CD

Raul De SouzaJazzmim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $14.99
Warm and wonderful work from trombonist Raul De Souza – easily his best outing in many many years, and a record that almost takes us back to his 60s bossa roots as Raulzinho! The style here is a bit more modern than Raul's bossa sessions – but the record has a similar warmly flowing quality – a use of the trombone in ways that differ from most American jazzmen, but still with enough of a jazz-based sense of improvisation alongside compelling rhythms. Instrumentation is all small combo – with guitar, percussion, and bits of keyboards – and the record has a near-perfect sound throughout, one that's a great showcase for De Souza's personal and introspective tone on trombone. Titles include "7 Maluco", "Violao Quebrado", "Yolaine", "Luiza", "Nos Conformes", "Alamanda", "Tema Para Raul", and "St Remy". CD

✨✧ Zeze GonzagaSou Apenas Uma Senhora ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used ... $9.99
A set of tracks dedicated to Elizeth Cardoso – sung by Zeze Gonzaga, who must have been a contemporary of hers, and arranged beautifully by Cristovao Bastos. The set's got the sophisticated, slightly-classic feel of other titles on the Biscoto Fino label – supervised by Olivia Hime with a great deal of care – and titles include "Todo Sentimento", "Vida De Artista", "Chao De Estrelas", "Inquietacao", "Por Que Te Escondes", and "Meu Consolo E Voce".

Francis Hime's Sinfonia Do Rio De Janeiro De Sao Sebastiao – recorded here with orchestral backing, and solo work by artists that include Lenine, Leila Pinheiro, Olivia Hime, Sergio Santos, and Ze Renato. The work is divided up into 7 movements – with titles that include "Abertura", "Lundu", "Modinha", "Samba", "Choro", and "Cancao Brasileira". CD

✨✧ Olivia HimePalavras De Guerra ... CD
Biscoito Fino/DiscMedi Blau (Spain), 2006. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet vocals from the lovely Olivia Hime – set up here in one of her most gentle, intimate settings ever! The arrangements are by Francis Hime on most of the record – but they're a bit less ambitious than usual, and mostly feature smaller group instrumentation, working alongside Olivia's warm and heartfelt vocals. There's a sense of poise and balance here that's really great – but not one that's too stuffy, or staid – more a new level of simplicity that we really appreciate in the work of both of the Himes! Titles include "Jogo De Roda", "Ode Maritima", "Ierama", "Tatuagem", "Entrudo", "Esse Mundo E Meu", "Carta", and "Ultimo Canto". CD

Edu KriegerEdu Krieger ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2007. Used ... $4.99
Edu Krieger's written a few songs for Maria Rita, but he's an even more compelling artist on his own – a musician who mixes samba roots with a bit more electric guitar – all in a blend that's quite organic and quite unique! There's a warm, personal sensibility to many of these tunes – but also not one that's too sleepy, or singer/songwriter also – almost that first blend of old and new that we loved hearing in initial music from Lenine or Otto a number of years back, but served up here with a stripped-down, personal sort of feel. Acoustic instrumentation mixes nicely with a few light beats and guitar – and Krieger's vocals have a poetic flow that's extremely compelling, even without a knowledge of the language. Titles include "Ciranda Do Mundo", "Novo Amor", "Desafio", "A Escada", "Temporais", "Saber Ganhar", and "Volta Pra Voce". CD

Edu LoboTantas Mares ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. Used ... $14.99
Edu Lobo's one of those Brazilian artists we never miss a chance to hear – because as albums like this will attest, his talents have never dimmed over the years! The record's got a really great sound – one that links together the majestic quality of his earlier work, and some of the more deeply personal modes of later years – that special Lobo-esque quality that makes his music unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of! The record's co-arranged with Cristovao Bastos, who also plays piano – and puts together some great small combo instrumentation behind Lobo's lead vocals. Titles include "Coracao Cigano", "Angu De Caroco", "Tantas Mares", "Ode Aos Ratos", "A Bela E A Fera", "Ciranda Da Bailarina", "A Historia De Lily Braun", and "Primeira Cantiga". CD

MiuchaCompositores ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album from Miucha – the lovely bossa singer who recorded a few albums with Tom Jobim at the end of the 70s! The album's a much more mature effort than those records – with Miucha in the lead as a sophisticated, mature singer – working through a set of tracks that features tunes by some of Brazil's greatest composers – Edu Lobo, Carlos Lyra, Joao Donato, and others. Titles include "Voce Voce", "A Dor A Mais", "Vento Levou", "Refem Da Solidao", "Tempo De Amar", "Solidao", "Cor De Cinza", "Pode Ir", "Fox E Trote", and "Cancao Inedita". CD

Milton Nascimento & BelmondoMilton Nascimento & Belmondo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2009. Used ... $4.99
A pretty cool little pairing – the vocals of Milton Nascimento and the combo of French jazz brothers Lionel and Stephane Belmondo – brought together in a very unusual sound! The record's one of the most interesting that Nascimento's cut in years – and although the Belmondos usually come across with a strongly jazz-based sound, the style here is a bit more complex – fuller charts, larger orchestrations, and a sense of melancholic majesty that's almost what you might expect if you heard Johnny Mandel arranging for Milton Nascimento! Lionel plays soprano sax and flute, Stephane plays trumpet – and titles include "Cancao Do Sal", "Milagre Dos Peixes", "Oracao", "Morro Velho", "Travessia", "Ponta De Areia", and "Berceuse/Malilia".

✨✧ Ze RenatoMinha Praia ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An album of incredible beauty – one that grabbed us a lot more strongly than we expected! Ze Renato's always had an incredible voice, but on this debut for the Biscoito Fino label, it seems to have hit a whole new level! The record has these magical arrangements that are incredibly inspired – jazzy, but never cheesy – lush, but never sleepy – and always recorded with a style that seems to float Renato's vocals beautifully through the whole session. The sound is clearly inspired by classic 70s MPB, yet also opens up a whole new chapter – but without any of the more obvious touches of the Trama generation. Titles include "Toada", "Anima", "Fica Melhor Assim", "Andorinha", "Papo De Passarim", "Folhas No Ar", "Insonia", and "A Hora E A Vez". CD

Titles include "Vingaca", "Cabrochinha", "Mora Na Roca", "Onde Ir", "Sinhazinha", "Assum Branco", and "Cidade Lago". CD

Monica SalmasoTrampolim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $6.99
Way more than just a sweet Brazilian singer running through the usual sophisticated modes of the Biscoito Fino label – and instead a deeply moving set that features odd rhythms, haunting vocals, and some great spare instrumentation from players who include Lelo Nazario on keyboards and Nana Vasconcelos on percussion! Monica's vocals are clearly the focus of the album, but equally great is the way that the instrumentation moves in somber space beside her – stepping gently some moments, furrowing into the earth at others – and really giving the record a deeply personal sound. Bugge Wesseltoft plays keyboards on one track, but the real contributions here seem to come from Vasconcelos and Nazario, especially the latter. Titles include "Canto Dos Escravos", "O Minha Gente", "Lenda Praieria", "Saci", "O Bem Do Mar", "Bate Canela", "Trampolim", and "Tuaregue E Nago". CD

✨✧ Edu LoboEdu Lobo & The Metropole Orkest ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the boldest, most expressive work we've heard from Edu Lobo in years – a beautiful recording with the Metropole Orchestra, who help Lobo regain all the lofty power of his early 70s years! The arrangements here are full, and full of feeling too – lead vocals by Lobo soaring over the top of his sublime compositions, pushed onward strongly with the full orchestrations of the ensemble –and given some great jazzy undercurrents by the flute and sax work of Mauro Senise! We always like Edu, but the album's a real return to the qualities that first made us fall in love with his music so many years ago – and is continuing proof that the Metropole Orchestra really know how to bring new energy to an artist. Titles include "Vento Bravo", "Canto Triste", "Casa Forte", "Zanzibar", "Ave Rara", "Choro Bandido", "A Bela E A Fera", "Frevo Diabo", and "Danca Do Corrupiao". CD

✨✧ Gilberto GilGil Luminoso – Voz & Violao ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Just voice and guitar – a wonderful way to hear the talents of Gilberto Gil, especially after an array of sometimes-muddled styles used on some of his later work! This gem from the late 90s features Gilberto in one of his most stripped-down modes ever – just singing and with his own gentle guitar as accompaniment, in a gentle mode that's quite different from most of his other records, and almost reminds us a bit of his classic album from 1971 – except that here the lyrics are all in Portuguese, and the sound is a little warmer and more optimistic! The recording quality is great – tight enough to capture all the intimacy of the performance, but never too fake or "studio" – and titles include "O Seu Amor", "Aqui E Agora", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Tempo Rei", "Retiros Espirituais", "Rebento", "Metafora", "Meditacao", and "O Compositor Me Disse".

An intimate set of light guitar-based tunes from Chico Saraiva – most of which feature vocals, from a variety of singers that include Ana Luiza, Luciana Alves, Ney Mesquita, Ceumar, and Simone Guimares. There's a personal feel to the set – a level of warmth that goes beyond some of the other recent Biscoito Fino albums, and which ties together the work by different vocalists with a similar spirit that unites the album. Titles include "Incerteza", "Ensaio", "Baiao Do Tomas", "Aonde Voce For", "As Horas", "Canto Pra Aurora", and "Conceiao". CD

✨✧ VariousVinicius De Moraes – Trilha Sonora Do Filme Vinicius ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really loving tribute to the genius of Vinicius De Moraes – pulled from the recent film about his poetry and rich contributions to Brazilian music! The CD works almost as an audio documentary from the film – interspersing readings of poetic work with music, vocal performances, and commentary on Vinicius by Caetano and Chico Buarque! The overall format is as personal and poetic as might be hoped – and really captures the mix of spoken and vocal work that graced some of the older recordings made by Vinicius in the 60s and 70s. Titles include "Berimbau" by Edu Lobo, "Medo De Amar" by Chico Buarque, "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce" by Renato Braz, "Canto Triste" by Monica Salmaso, "Sem Mais Adeus" by Francis Hime, "Formosa" by Gilberto Gil, and "Tarde Em Itapoa" by Toquinho.
