Chico BuarqueCaravanas – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99
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".

Gilberto GilOk Ok Ok (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
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 ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
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".

Bebel GilbertoBebel Gilberto In Rio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. Used ... $19.99
A beautiful set in a beautiful setting – Bebel Gilberto in Rio, sounding even warmer and more soulful than ever before! The album's got a depth that goes beyond some of the simple bossa-rework of Gilberto's earliest record, and a maturity that even goes past recent work, too – a factor that may come partially from the musical backings, which were co-produced by Kassin and Liminha, who take traditional elements and make them crackle a bit more – but without any too-contemporary tricks or bossa-remix clunkiness. Some tunes are in English, most are in Portuguese – and Bebel manages to bring together some older classics with lots of her own great work as well. Titles include a great remake of "Bananeira", plus "Simplesmente", "August Day Song", "Rio", "Momento", "Tanto Tempo", "Sun Is Shining", "Samba E Amor", and "Close Your Eyes". CD

Olivia HimeEspelho De Maria – Cancoes De Dori Caymmi, Edu Lobo, E Francis Hime ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
Olivia Hime looks fantastic here on the cover – almost like French film legend Jeanne Moreau in some of her famous 60s portraits – and Hime comes across with a similar sort of presence on the set – working through songs by Edu Lobo and Dori Caymmi, but always transforming them with her subtle sense of majesty and drama. Backings are similar to some of the other Biscoito Fino projects from Olivia and Francis Hime – with a sense of arrangement that almost seems to rival soundtrack material in construction – and the set's divided into a suite of tracks by Caymmi, one by Lobo, and one more by Francis Hime.

Joyce50 ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful little record – one that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first album from Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers of all time! Joyce revisits all the songs from that record – including a few written by Caetano Veloso, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the change in sound is amazing – given all the maturity and sophistication the singer has brought to her sound over the decades! Make no mistake, Joyce was tremendous right from the start – but the change here from the first album is amazing – music that's full of subtle brilliance, jazzy inflections, and this way of completely inhabiting the lyrics, but without ever overdoing things – all qualities that were not in place on Joyce's debut. The set features work from Toninho Horta, Marcos Valle, Roberto Menescal, Zelia Duncan, Danilo Caymmi, and others – and titles include "Improvisado", "Anisedade", "Superego", "Litoral", "Choro Chorado", "Me Disseram", and "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho". Also includes two new tracks – "A Velha Maluca" and "Com O Tempo". CD

Paula & Jacques MorelenbaumLive In Italy – Omaggio To Jobim ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Joao Donato, Carlos Lyra, Marcos Valle, & RobertoOs Bossa Nova (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2008. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Marcos ArielNoite Feliz ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set of solo piano Christmas tunes from Brazilian keyboardist Marcos Ariel – a record that seems to start out with a familiar vibe, but then takes off into some very nice directions of its own! Ariel serves up a relatively straight take on "Jingle Bells" at the start – almost like a pianist in a cocktail bar – but then moves into material that includes some of his own tunes, as well as work by Milton Nascimento, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney. Titles include "Conversa Com Os Anjos", "Valsa De Santa Clara", "Ave Maria", "Luz Do Natal", "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)", "When You Wish Upon A Star", "O Velhino", "Cancao Da America", and "Ebony & Ivory".

✨✧ Chico BuarqueCaravanas ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's an aging Chico Buarque on the cover, still looking cooler than anyone else around – and sounding the same on this wonderful record! Buarque was one of the first of an important new generation of Brazilian songwriters to emerge in the 60s – and unlike some of the others, who've maybe lost steam over the years, Chico continues to grow and evolve – really shaping his music to different modes as the years go on, and never failing to give us his all with each new recording! This set's got a beautifully personal vibe – mostly Buarque's still-wonderful voice alongside his own acoustic guitar – augmented by other instrumentation, but in ways that still really leave the master at the forefront – with a level of songwriting and performance that's completely mesmerizing. Titles include "Tua Cantiga", "Massarandupio", "Dueto", "As Caravanas", "Desaforos", "Casualmente", and "Jogo De Bola". CD

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Gal CostaEstratoferica – Ao Vivo ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Igor EcaEm Casa Com Luiz Eca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The lovely Joyce – sounding lovelier here than we've heard in years – on a special Japanese album that really takes the singer back to her best classic territory! Backing is by a small group, and nicely jazzy – with piano from Helio Alves, and drums from Tutty Moreno – providing gentle accompaniment, but really letting the lady stretch out on her own vocals and acoustic guitar – with those soaring, cascading lines that first made us fall in love with her music way back in the 70s – captured perfectly here with impeccable, understated production. Alves notes on the piano are especially beautiful – ringing out in a way that really offsets the vocals and guitar – on titles that include "Mingus, Miles, & Coltrane", "Humaita", "No Misterio Do Samba", "Sambando No Apocalipse", "Casa Da Flor", "Na 75", "Ave Maria Serena", and "Forrobodo Das Meninas".

Classic samba, but done with a really jazzy flair – thanks to help from arrangers who include Gilson Perenzzetta, Cristovao Bastos, Afonso Machado, and Paulao 7 Cordas! Medeiros sings with a voice that belies the lifetime of expression that goes into each tune – and is backed here by light instrumentation that includes guitar, cavaquinho, and percussion – plus some well-placed piano on the album's jazzier numbers. Titles include "Partiu", "Velha Poeira", "Relaxa", "Lavo Minhas Maos", "Tesouro Guardado", "Dividas", "Demorou", and "Senador". CD
