Bola SeteBola Sete At The Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Verve, 1966. Used ... $9.99
A killer set of grooves recorded live by this legendary Brazilian guitarist – and a record of his that we've always sold extremely well over the years! The setting is a stripped down stage at the Monterey Jazz Festival – where Sete grooves in an open-ended fashion with only bass and drums behind him. The best track on here is "Soul Samba", a nice little groover with good drumming by Paulinho (Magalhaes) – and the CD also features an extended medley of tracks from Black Orpheus, plus an original called "Flamenco". Plus, the CD reissue features 2 bonus tracks – both nice and long, and not on the original album! CD
(Out of print, 2000 digipack pressing with a cutout mark through the barcode.)

✨✧ Bola SeteAutentico! ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from this great Brazilian guitarist! Sete's in fine form here, definitely more "autentico" than on other albums – and he grooves nicely with a bossa sound, and backing by a good rhythm combo that includes Sebastian Neto on bass and Paulinho on drums! Titles include "Soul Samba", "Consolacao", "Brejeiro", "Baion Blues", and "Coisa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bola SeteOcean ... LP
Takoma, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful record by Bola Sete, and probably one of his best. The great John Fahey produced this set for his Takoma label, and his history with the acoustic guitar lets him get all of these beautiful tones and sounds out of Bola's playing that are often missed on other recordings. The set includes some fantastic stuff played on solo guitar, including "Let Go (Canto De Osshana)", "Macumba", "O Astronauta", "In Of The Beginning, Cotati", and "Ocean Waves". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bola SeteSamba In Seattle – Live At The Penthouse 1966 to 1968 (3CD set) ... CD
Tompkins Square, Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Guitarist Bola Sete made some of his most important American recordings of the 60s on the San Francisco scene – but this huge set of unreleased tracks captures the Brazilian player farther up north, as he works in a sweet set of trio recordings captured at a small club in Seattle! The music is a great counterpart to some of Bola's recordings for Fantasy Records during the same time, but also captures the guitarist with a bit more complexity too – some of the qualities that he wouldn't always show on record at this level until the 70s, but which were clearly part of his sound right from the start! The group's a trio – with Sebastiao Neto on bass and Paulinho Magalhaes on drums – and titles include "Soul Samba", "Deve Ser Amor", "Malaguena", "Garota De Ipanema", "Astrurias", "Consolacao", "Tristeza", "A Feliciade", "Prelude No 3", "Spanish Dance No 5", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Satin Doll", "One Note Samba", and "Corcovado".

✨✧ Bola SeteBola Sete Trios – Tour De Force (Bossa Nova/Tour De Force) ... CD
Fantasy, 1962/1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brazilian guitar genius galore – 2 rare Fantasy albums from guitarist Bola Sete! First up is Bossa Nova – a date that was issued in the 60s with a title to cash in on the growing bossa craze in the US – and which stands as one of Sete's best for Fantasy Records! The sound is very much in keeping with some of the guitar-driven bossa of the time – work by Luiz Bonfa or Charlie Byrd, particularly in the way that Sete's spare acoustic guitar is mixed in with some lively percussion, plus bass from Ben Tucker and drums from Dave Bailey. Those two players really help the album find a nice little groove – and the whole thing dances along nicely, with tracks that include "Wagging Along", "Ash Wednesday", "Samba In The Perrotaoquei", "Brazilian Bossa Galore", "Without You", "My Different World", "Sweet Thing", and "Dilemma". Tour De Force offers a great range of different modes from guitarist Bola Sete – not just bossa-styled groovers, but other tunes that show a deeper, more introspective side of his talents! Bola's not afraid to break away from familiar, mainstream modes here – and given the early 60s date of the record, his sensitivity on quieter numbers is quite groundbreaking – a bit more like work from other players that wouldn't show up until later in the decade. Rhythm is by Fred Schrieber on bass and John Rae on drums, but there's also some moments that are more heavily oriented towards Bola's solo guitar. Titles include "Tour De Force", "Bouree", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Samba De Orpheus", "Moon River", and "Asturias". CD

✨✧ Bola SeteO Extraordinario Bola Sete (45 rpm 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/DOL (Russia), 1962. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A rare Brazilian gem from guitarist Bola Sete – recorded before his more famous work for Fantasy Records, in a slightly different groove! Bola's playing a hollow-body electric here, and with a style that's more jazz than bossa – very well played, with a nice sense of tone and color – and backings that have a slightly blue sort of quality and modern overtones. There's still a bit of samba rhythms at times, and the record is a real standout from the early Odeon years – with titles that include "Eu Vou De Samba Rock", "Menino Desce Dai", "Un Recuerdo", "Noite Chuvosa", "Brigitte Bardot", and "Piel Canela".

Ralph J GleasonMusic In The Air (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
Ralph J Gleason might just be one of the coolest cats to ever write about music – a key part of the San Francisco scene during the postwar years – where his talents helped illuminate both the worlds of art and music during the beat generation – then really helped shine a spotlight on all the cultural changes in the city during the 60s – which even led to Gleason's role in the founding of Rolling Stone magazine! Gleason always had a great eye (and ear) for things that were new and special, but never in a way that was slavish to the moment – or to its creator – and the book features an initial section on his writings on jazz and blues – with essays on John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, BB King, John Handy, Vince Guaraldi & Bola Sete, Cal Tjader, Ben Webster, the San Francisco Jazz scene, and other diverse topics. The second section features Gleason on folk and rock – with bits on Jefferson Airplane, Hank Williams, Lenny Bruce, Odetta, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and others – and the final section features articles on politics and culture – covering topics that include Richard Nixon, radio payola, Law & Order, flower children, and other slices of society, seen from the Gleason viewpoint. Book is hardcover, and 309 pages. Book

✨✧ John FaheyJohn Fahey Visits Washington DC ... CD
Takoma (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic late 70s album from guitar genius John Fahey – his first after a number of years away from the recording studio – and a real back to basics effort overall! There's none of the "orchestra" trappings of other 70s records – nor some of Fahey's more longer-form ideas – and instead, the tracks focus mostly on his incredible sense of texture and timing on the acoustic guitar – heard to perfectly as he folds his own compositions together with songs by Bill Monroe, Bola Sete, Leo Kottke, and Doc Watson! The whole thing's wonderfully understated – even more so than you'd guess from the cover – and titles include "Silver Bell/Cheyenne", "Ann Arbor/Death By Reputation", "The Discovery Of Syliva Scott", "Guitar Lamnento", "Melody McBad", and "The Grand Finale".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieNew Wave (Trip) ... LP
Philips, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a light stain on the spine, but looks great overall.)
