✨✧ Bossa RioBossa Rio ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A groovy bossa gem from the glory days of A&M Records – an ultra-hip group recorded with production by Sergio Mendes! The feel here is a lot like that of Brasil 66 – bossa rhythms, sunny CA instrumentation, and lovely female vocals – in this case sung singularly, by the lovely Gracinha Leporace – aka Mrs Mendes! Instrumentation is arguably even better than on Brasil 66 records – with wonderfully groovy organ lines from Manfredo Fest, who plays Lowrey organ instead of the usual Hammond. A really essential slice of bossa nova – and a record we'd never part with! Filled with wonderful tunes that include "Gentle Rain", "Up Up & Away", "Wave", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Cacao do Sal", "Veleiro", "Saiupa", and "Nana". CD

Friends From RioFriends From Rio 2014 ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2014. Used ... $8.99
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative effort between a range of Brazilian and British talents – served up in a style that bridges the gap between older bossa and more contemporary modes! The music is perfect from the ground up – not a cheesy bossa remix project, but a true blend of all the best elements, served up in a rich new style. The project gets key Incognito-style help from Daniel "Venom" Maunick, and a real Azymuth pedigree from Alex Malheiros – and the whole thing features a great range of different singers, including Hyldon, Robertinho Silva, Aleh Ferreira, Ivan Matheus, Denise Pinaud, Sabrina Malheiros, and Carlos Dafe – each wrapped up in a sweet blend of Fender Rhodes, organ, riffing guitar, and sweet jazzy horns. Titles include "So Resta A Porta Se Abrir", "Mas Que Nada", "Garota", "Aguai", "Casino Bangu", "Batucada Bidu", "Anthemia", "Leita De Pedra", and "Mulher Malagueta". CD

Insolito UniVersoLa Candela del Rio ... CD
Olindo (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $7.99
A Venezuelan group, one who are living in Paris – and work here with a criss-crossing of styles that really reflect that global journey! The music definitely has echoes of older Venezuelan styles, but maybe served up in a more impressionistic version – with a dream-like quality at times, as the instruments come together airily, often getting a nicely moody vibe in the production – which was partly done by Malcolm Catto, who also mixed the record. There's a really lovely female singer in the mix – with a lightness that's almost more like a bossa vocalist at times – and the instrumentation is both electric and acoustic, but often delivered at a level that make it hard to figure out where one begins and one ends. Titles include "Lloviendo En Guatire", "Yo Soy Mi Rio", "Tonada Del Guante", "Transmutada", "Vuelve", "Pajaro", and "Machurucuto". CD

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy ... On September 26, 2020
Sergio Mendes is definitely a swinger – especially on this jazz-based session that was recorded before his famous work with Brasil 66! This album was recorded in New York, at a time when Mendes was one of the hottest things brewing in the bossa scene in Brazil – and apart from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim on guitar, many of the other players are American jazz musicians – including Art Farmer on flugelhorn, Phil Woods on alto sax, and Hubert Laws on flute – all adding in some nice jazzy elements to the tunes! The music is all instrumental, and a great mix of jazz and bossa that really lets you hear the young Sergio's skills on piano. Titles include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". LP, Vinyl record album

Quarteto Em CyAo Vivo Nos Anos 80 (Fortaleza/Rio De Janeiro/Niteroi/Tokyo) (4CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $44.99
Fantastic later work from one of the coolest Brazilian groups of the 60s – the Quarteto Em Cy, a key female counterpart to some of the male harmony groups who arose during the bossa nova generation! Unlike some of those groups, though, Quarteto Em Cy kept going very strongly for decades to come – really united in this warm sense of interplay that really comes through in their vocals – even though one of the original members has left the quartet by the time of these recordings. The passage of time never seems to shake up their style at all – partly because the quartet have such a honest, unadorned approach – one that really adapts to different periods, and different material. The set adds some great unreleased recordings to their too-small 80s catalog – and features concerts recorded in Tokyo, Rio, Niteroi, and Fortaleza between 1983 and 1989. CD

Lalo SchifrinPiano Strings & Bossa Nova (aka Insensatez) ... LP
MGM, 1963. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements – in a style that's incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that's at once spooky and lovely – a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album's light years away from other "piano with strings" albums of the time – proof that Schifrin was easily one of the most imaginative forces of his generation, and an arranger who really helped reshape music in the 60s. Titles include the incredible version of "Maria" that's played quite often by Gilles Peterson – plus loads of other nice ones, like "The Wave", "Insensatez", "You And Me", "Murmurio", "Rapaz De Bem", "Rio After Dark", and "Time For Love".

Scenario (Italy), 2000. Used ... $7.99
A groovy blend of modern bossa tunes – mostly from Italian groups, and mostly in small combo mode that's got a strong back to basics sound! The set's got a sparkling feel that's really nice – and most tracks have a straight bossa jazz groove, without any of the remix trickery that you'll get on other compilations of this nature. Lots of keyboards, jazzy rhythms, and great female vocals – and a set list that includes "Anju Da Neve" by Michele Corcella Quintet, "Samba In Se" by Brazilian Wax, "Week End A Rio" by Safe Noir, "Spesso Bossa" by Brazilian Wax, "Bari" by Cocktail Mood Experience, "Linda" by Sam Paglia, "La Boutique Ultramoderne" by Sinclair & Cocktail Mood, and "Boundaries" by Grand Central.

✨✧ Banda Black RioO Som Das Americas ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary work from Banda Black Rio – the legendary Brazilian funk band who gave us some really great records in the 70s! Turns out, the group still sounds great after all the passage of years – more in a modern soul mode overall, with a few more sophisticated twists and turns alongside the grooves – and a wider style overall, to make room for guests who include Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Elza Soares, Cesar Camargo Mariano, and others! Think of the music as a progression from earlier Brazilian soul modes – a bit in the way that early Ed Motta work was a step forward from the generation of Tim Maia – and amidst the great guest vocal work, there's also plenty of sharp instrumentation. Titles include "Arthur E O Gigante", "America Do Sul", "Labirintos", "Rir E Chorar", "Isabela", "Aos Pes Do Redentor", "Vento Leva", "Aguas Sabias", "Bossa Da Praia", and "Nove No Samba". CD

✨✧ VariousBreak N' Bossa – Chapter 8 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2008. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful bossa groovers galore – and one of the greatest entries so far in a series that never lets us down! Years back when Break N Bossa first started, the concept of older Brazilian modes and contemporary dancefloor rhythms was something of a new idea – but over the years, with the help of titles like this, grooves around the globe are a heck of a lot warmer – filled with acoustic elements that take us back not only to the sounds of Rio in the 60s, but also to the European scene that was so inspired by it in later decades. This time around, there's plenty of greatness to chose from – and there's definitely a deepening of the sound as members of the Schema and other scenes represented here have matured over the years. 2CD set features 26 tracks in all, some previously unreleased – including "VSOP (Beatfanatic edit)" by Stockholm Cyclo, "Pinkie (2008 version)" by Beat Out Shrine, "Jurubeba" by Luis Ferri with Adi Souza, "No Mercy For Me (Alessandro Magnanini rework)" by Mario Biondi, "Ocean (Diggin In The Latin mix)" by The Dining Rooms, "Carolina Carol Bela" by Gerardo Frisina with Anna Clementi, "Carioca (Nicola Conte rmx)" by Fragmentorchestra, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor (Fedreghini & Bianchi rmx)" by Rosalia De Souza, "Que Bandeira (Frisina rmx)" by Rosalia De Souza, "Thin Ice (Fedreghini & Bianchi rmx)" by Dining Rooms, "Till The End (Inverse Cinematics rmx)" by The Invisible Session, "Kind Of Latin Rhythm" by Juju Orchestra, "Aromi" by Nick Bernard, and "Non Stop Flight" by Dalindeo.

The Bossa's not just "A La Mode" – it's jazzy, electronic, and pretty darn soulful too! This tasty little set was put together by the groovehounds at Japan's Rambling Records – and it's one of the freshest collections of recent bossa-inspired work we've heard in a long time! There's a few familiar names on the set, but most of the work is from less-common sources – and really opens our ears to a lot of great tracks that we might have otherwise passed by! Titles include a great bossa-styled reworking of Jamiroquai's "Space Cowboy" by Jazzamor, plus the tracks "Mare Grande (radio)" by Freak Do Brasil, "Cha Ka Too (Yonama Beach mix)" by Hibiki Connection, "Na Estrada" by Acid X, "Lovelight (Paolo & Edda love bossa mix)" by Stereo Action Unlimited, "Seaside (bossa pour Isabel Nicola Conte rmx)" by Buscemi, "La Boca Del Rio" by S-Tone Inc, "Batuques" by Maracutala with Samuel Fraga, and "Jogando Capoeira" by Beatfanatic.

Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz Bonfa & OthersAntonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz Floriano Bonfa – Including Orfeu Da Conceicao ... CD
El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $16.99
Very early recordings of work penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfa – nearly all of which predate their more familiar sides from the first years of bossa nova! The dates for these recordings are mostly between 1953 and 1956 – and they show a very early version of the bossa, one that's often built around lightly airy instrumental elements, but which still has some of the fuller flourishes of the generation before. The set's a bit short on notes overall, but does list the dates and players for each track – and even without that information, it's still a very useful illustration of what came before bossa nova – and why the bossa sound had a particular quality that was so different! Most tracks were penned by either Jobim or Bonfa, or both – and titles are a mix of instrumental and vocal numbers – with 27 tracks that include "Domingo Sincopado" by Edu, "Luar E Batucada" by Sylvia Telles, "Teu Castigo" by Daiva De Oliveira, "So Saudade" by Claudia Morena, "Violao No Samba" by Luiz Bonfa, "Samba Nao E Brinquedo" by Dora Lopes, "A Chuva Caiu" by Luiz Bonfa, "Passeio No Rio" by Luiz Bonfa & Ed Lincoln, and "Perdido De Amor" by Dick Farney – plus 8 tracks from the pair's great score to the play "Orfeu Da Conceicao", which was the precursor to Black Orpheus!

Marcela's does her lovely best on songs penned by the giants – Roberto Menescal, Ivan Lins, Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius De Moraes, Caetano Veloso and others.

Sergio MendesBeat Of Brazil (aka Voce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada) (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... On September 26, 2020
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album

Brazilian guitarist Sebastiao Tapajos usually records in a relatively mellow mode – but here, he'd working with percussive backings from Pedro Dos Santos – who plays a wide variety of instruments, and really adds a lot to the sound of the set! There's kind of a bossa guitar with percussion vibe to the record – although Tapajos' style always moves past just straight bossa – and Pedro handles all sorts of percussion elements, and even brings in some cool vocal effects – on titles that include "Escola De Samba", "Laberinto", "Catedral", "Dora/Saudade Da Bahia", "Ganga", "Rio Das Ostras" "Emboscada", "Feitio De Oracoa", and "Sambaden".

Hey, don't forget: when it's winter in Rio, it's summer up here – which means that whatever the season, you'll get a full blend of sunny bossa from this great box set! Like others in the series, this one blends together the "Brazil" and "electro" – in a style that recalls recent work from the British, German, and Italian scenes – and which features some of the best of the bossa-dancefloor crowd. The overstuffed package features 21 tracks on 2CDs – all in a nice heavy case!

✨✧ Joao DonatoBluchanga ... CD
Mills (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful record from the legendary Joao Donato – a killer jazz session, originally done as a private release for a Brazilian corporation, and never circulated widely at the time! The set's from Donato's more recent years, but it's got the sparkle and soul of some of his earlier jazz-based projects – with rhythms that push past basic bossa, into the more complicated timings and phrasings of Donato's 70s years – with almost a Moacir Santos sense of arrangements to the small group instrumentation! Donato plays acoustic piano, and the group includes Luiz Alves on bass, Robertino Silva on drums, Ricardo Pontes on flute and alto, Leo Amuedo on guitar, and Jose Arimatea on flugelhorn. The sense of color here is brilliant – that mix of modernism and down-to-earth appeal that always made Donato one of the standouts of his generation – and titles include "Lua Dourada", "Uma Bencao", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Malandor", "Capricorn", "Rio Branca", "Uma Para O Duke", and a great version of the Clare Fischer tune "Morning".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Luiz BonfaJazz Samba Encore! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". LP, Vinyl record album

The Girls From Bahia are actually the Quarteto Em Cy – one of the best harmony groups of the bossa era, and famous for classic recordings on the Elenco label – but working here in a rare American context that has them singing in English with heavily accented voices! The overall setting's quite similar to their Brazilian classics – gentle bossa backings arranged by Oscar Castro Neves, who brings an airy feel to the set – and it's great to hear the girls singing here in English, in ways that link back to the older harmony groups that clearly inspired them. The whole thing's incredibly charming, and titles include "Surfing In Rio", "Tup A Tup", "The Face I Love", "Canto De Ossanha", "Image", "Useless Landscape", "Tears", "Voce", and "Pardon My English".

Really moody vocals from Waldecir Lima – an artist with a sound that's a lot deeper and more resonant than most other Brazilian 60s singers who were pictured on the cover holding an acoustic guitar! The style here isn't the light mode of the bossa generation – which usually comes with a package like this – but instead a fuller, richer approach that's almost more resonant with older Cuban vocal modes than sounds from Rio – as Lima's voice is set up with light orchestrations, slow-stepping percussion, and some backup vocals. Titles include "Perfida", "Mulher Nao Muda", "Tudo Ou Nada", "Que Queres Tu De Mim", "Imitacao De Cristo", "Tres Palavras", and "Quantas Palavras". CD

There's an accordion player in the trio – next to a violinist and guitarist – but all three musicians move in styles that are very different than American modes of the period – really spare, with space between the notes, and a style that mixes samba rhythms with jazzy inflections, and opens up all three instruments in directions that are wonderfully fresh, and nice and lean overall! Titles include "Duas Contras", "O Relogio Da Vovo", "Tenderly", "Na Madrugada", "Malaguena", "Nos Tres", and "Ninguem Me Ama".

The US was no stranger to Brazilian sounds in the 60s – given the popularity of bossa nova and a few other styles – but as the 70s approached, a new generation of artists started to hit the American scene – often with richer, more sophisticated ideas that built on older bossa and samba modes, then combined them with new approaches to jazz, funk, and soul!

The sound is warm and open – never overindulgent, but stretching out in ways the core bossa trio could never do on their own – using the best rhythmic qualities of the sax and guitar to carve out some wonderful grooves!

A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the bossa flavor promised in the title – kind of a post-bossa version of the bossa jazz trio style of the 60s – a bit like the records that Tamba Trio and Milton Banana were cutting in the 70s, but maybe even better overall! The percussionists are all great – the album features five of them, all Brazilian – and they work alongside bassist Toni Botero and drummer Elis Siabo. Titles include "Samba Medley", "Mood Island", "UFO", "Midnight Sun Never Set", and "Diane". CD

Scenario (Italy), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sparkling selection of bossa groovers for Italy – a great document of the depth of the sounds the country's been releasing in the past few years, and why they're at the top of the bossa revival sound in our book! The artists on the set have a real appreciation for the things that made the bossa great in the first place – organs, keyboards, guitars, flute, and lovely vocals – and they manage to take the elements and make them sound fresher than ever, imbuing the tunes with a new sort of groove that sits well on the dancefloor, but which loses none of the gentle care of the bossa spirit. You'll recognize a few of the names on the set from the Irma label, but there's plenty more tunes that we'd never heard before – and which we really really love! Titles include "Dolcemente" by Brazilian Wax, "Goodbye Mr Mario" by St Niccolo, "Naval" by Estrela Guia, "Angelinha" by Safe Noire, "Volare Via" by Brazilian Wax, "Longest Day" by Hammond Express, "Drummer Boy" by Italian Secret Service, "Brazil Summer" by Cocktail Mood, and "Maria Fumaca 77" by Estrela Guia.

Mario Castro-NevesBrazilian Mood ... LP
Phase 4 (UK), 1973. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A unique British session from bossa maestro Mario Castro-Neves – one that's got the same sweet and jazzy touches as his 60s records, but a slightly different feel as well! The style here is totally great – kind of the same maturation of sound that Sergio Mendes was hitting in the early 70s – thanks to the right placement of a few electric elements, and a generally warm style of production that creates a great blend of modes in Castro-Neves' music. Instrumentation features keyboards, percussion, and some larger orchestrations used in very spare and creative ways – and there's often some great electric bass bubbling along the bottom to groove things up nicely. Many tracks have wordless vocals, sung in a scatting, breezy way that's even groovier than Brasil 77 – and titles include "Macumba Mood", "The Whole Mess", "Xaxado Blues", "Call Me Up", "Helena & I", "Hold My Hand", and "Loud & Clear".

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

Tower, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $12.99
Nice early stuff from Sergio – also issued as the album Brazil 65 on Capitol! That's Brasil 65, not Brasil 66 – a distinction that marks a key early stage for the great Sergio Mendes – heard here on one of his first albums to mix together bossa jazz and vocals! The approach here is a bit more like vintage bossa dates from Brazil – or a bit like some of the Verve bossa records too – as Sergio's core trio is at the heart of every tune, playing with a great jazzy approach – then augmented in different ways by alto and flute from Bud Shank, guitar from Rosinha De Valenca, and vocals from the lovely Wanda De Sah! Production is perfect – really in a classic Elenco Records mode – and titles include "Let Me", "Consolacao", "Tristeza Em Mim", "Muito A Vontade", "Reza", "Berimbau", and "Aquarius".

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... CD
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's got an amazing ear for color and tone, balanced out with some completely sublime grooves – not smooth coffee shop bossa nova, but instead the harder sort of rhythms that were cooked up by the best combos in Brazil! The tunes are as warm and soulful as they are tight and angular – a perfect summation of the bossa jazz idiom at its truest expression – and the writing is fantastic throughout, with original songs that really provide a fresh change from some of the too-played hits of the generation. Instrumentation includes trombone from Raul De Souza, drums from Milton Banana, tenor from Meirelles, and alto sax from Paulo Moura – on titles that include the classic groover "Nebulosa", plus the tracks "Clouds", "Nectar", "Embalo", and "Estou Nessa Agora". A delight through and through – and one we never tire of! CD

Mr Bongo (UK), 2004. Used ... $5.99
The always surprising, always funky, always great Brazilian Beats series goes one volume deeper! The far-reaching tendencies of Brazilian Beats never fails to impress, and nearly overwhelm. Number 5 keeps the contemporary club and dancefloor scheme well out front, with appearances by many of the gods and goddesses of Brazilian musical culture like Elis Regina and Mario Castro Neves on the set, younger innovators like Bossa Tres, and a slew of talents that introduce some really incredible breakbeat and hip hop influences! It takes a special track list to seamlessly string elements of bossa and samba with such seemingly disparate contemporary club sounds – but that's why we keep following these compilations, isn't it? 18 tracks in all: Tejo, Black Alien & Speed "Follow Me Follow Me (Sao Benitez Radio Edit)", Stereo Maracana "Freestyle Love", Jorge Ben Jr. "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", Edson Frederico "Bobeira", Marku Ribas "Zamba Ben", Marcelo D2 "A Maldicao Do Samba", Jackson Do Pandeiro "Eu Balanco (Beatfanatic Rework)", Bossa Tres "Imprevisto", Mario Castro Neves & Samba S.A.

Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A really great entry into one of our favorite series ever – and a set that's overflowing with rare jukebox jazz from the 60s! These aren't the heady tracks of the Coltrane generation, but the kind of soulful stompers that were brewing underneath – circulating on 45s from lots of indie-labels – and often sitting in a sweet space between hardbop and R&B! Lots of tunes have a very mod feel – hence the title – either a strong tenor solo, or some sweet Hammond, or some skittish rhythms – and the set features lots of tracks that we'd never heard before, and a few more than we'd forgotten about too. Titles include "Bossa Baby" by Googie Rene, "Hen House" by Paul & Rick, "Another Child Lost" by Floyd White, "The Fat Man (part 1)" by The TKOs, "Bucket Full Of Soul" by Trudy Pitts, "Cooking In Grease" by Reuben Wilson, "Watermelon Walk" by The Five Counts, "Hard Working Girl" by Clarence Daniels & Obie Jessie, "You Were Wrong" by The Miles Grayson Trio, and "El Tacos" by Frenchy & The Chessmen.

That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles here are mostly in the rhythms – as lots of the instrumentation follows in ways that reference early 70s Italian cop and crime – and, to a lesser extent, some of the mod and bossa styles of the late 60s – all handled by the cream of the crop of the Italian film world, mostly with an instrumental approach! The set list is great, and really brings together the best examples of the genres, and avoids some of the cheesy, clunky tunes that sometimes got in the way on larger soundtracks – which makes for a cool compilation that really packs one hell of a punch! Titles include "La Settimana Bianca" and "Classe Mista" by Gianni Ferrio, "Taxi Girl" by Pulsar Music Ltd, "Scusi Lei E Normale" by Franco Micalizzi, "La Sposina" by Nico Fidenco, "Sette Ragazze Di Classe" by Fabio Frizzi, "L'Insegnante Balla Con Tutta La Classe" by Walter Rizzati, "La Liceale" by Vittorio Pezzola, "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Grazi Nonna" by Enrico Simonetti, and "L'Infermiera Di Mio Padre" by Giacomo Dell'Orso.

Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased!

Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title.

Brazilian grooves from the past, present, and future – all selected by the folks at Favela Chic, one of Paris' hippest night spots! The selection of tunes shows the same sort of shift in Paris that's been happening in London and Tokyo lately – an interest in Brazilian music that's moved past just bossa nova and jazz, to encompass styles from a wide range of periods, including funky 70s samba, underground funk and soul, and current work by MPB artists. The package features 25 very fresh grooves – dating as far back as the 60s, and moving right up to the present – and titles include "Morte Da Sandalia De Couro" by Bebeto, "Alegria De Voces" by Jair Rodrigues, "Edmundo" by Elsa Soares, "Popozuda Rock & Roll" by De Falla, "Megamon" by Btutinha DJ, "Eu Sou Favela" by Bezerra Da Silva, "Eu Tambem Quero Mocoto" by Jorge Ben, "Vendedor De Bananas" by Os Increveis, and "Aquecimento De Capoeira" by A Coisona.

Righteous grooves from a slightly unlikely source – Holland's Timeless label, always a fine outlet for mainstream jazz, but not always as well known for soulful and funky work! This set more than corrects any staid perceptions of the label, and does a great job of digging through the Timeless catalog to pull out tunes with a strong appeal for ears tuned on the modern groove scene – soul jazz numbers, bossa tracks, and a few rolling modal anthems that recall the power and brilliance of mid 70s American work on labels like Muse or Inner City. All tracks are longish, and filled with great spirit and life – and there's echoes here of earlier experiments on Impulse, reworked slightly with a European vibe and a tighter feel overall. Titles include "Dannielle" by Eddie Marshall, "Articulation" and "The Gift" by Rodney Jones, "Times Past" by Benny Golson, "Vera Cruz" and "Ponteio" by Batida, "Sayanara Blues" by The Bronx Horns, "Moon Child" and "Africa" by Pharoah Sanders, "Aquelas Coisas Todas" by Samba Trio, "Boland" by Woody Shaw, and "Rise Of Atlantis" by Carter Jefferson.

✨✧ Herb Ellis/Laurindo Almeida/Johnny GrayThree Guitars In Bossa Nova Time ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really really wonderful little record – one that's far more than you might guess from it's slightly gimmicky title! The session's clearly done in a mode to resonate with the Charlie Byrd or Stan Getz bossa work of the early 60s, but it's also got a slightly offbeat quality that makes it really unique – a sound that partly comes from the use of three guitars by three relatively different players, and from the way that the tunes themselves are put together. There's almost a jam session feel at times here – with the guitars coming together in a tension of different voices, hardly the sort of thing you'd hear in a regular bossa album. But equally great is the tenor sax work of Bob Enevoldsen – which comes in with a sharper edge and a bit more soul than his 50s sides – creating a deeper quality to the tunes that's really great. Percussion is by a trio that includes Milt Holland, Bob Neel, and Chico Guerrero – and Donn Trenner plays piano and Bob Bertaux is on bass. Titles include "I Told Ya I Love Ya Now Get Out", "Sweet Dreams", "Bossa Nova #2", "Bossa Nova Samba", and "Leave It To Me". CD

One of the greatest compilations of Brazilian music you could ever hope to buy – a brilliant selection of classic tunes, put together by DJs Gilles Peterson & Joe Davis as an introduction to the rich sounds of Brazil! The scope is amazing – a real blend of numbers that represent the best that Brazil has to offer, and which goes past the usual bossa-heavy type of compilation you'd find in the US. Here, the grooves know no boundaries – and run from jazzy, to baroque, to funky, breezy, folksy, and beyond. Many of the tracks on the set have still not been reissued in any other form, and even though the compilation's nearly a decade old, it's still one of the first we'd recommend to anyone wanting a great set of Brazilian music! Titles include "Birimbau" by Dom Um Romao, "Vera Cruz" by Milton Nascimento, "After Sunrise" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77, "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Solo" by Meirelles E Os Copa 5, "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" by Marcos Valle, "Blues A Volante" by Baden Powell, "Adam Adam" by Joyce, "Tamba" by Tamba Trio, "Upa Neguinho" by Edu Lobo, "Tudo Tom" by Joao Donato, and "Vidigal" by Marcos Resende & Index. 16 cuts in all – and an essential set!

El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool collection of female bossa nova records – one that really goes way past the usual! First up is Bossa Classica by Caterina Valente – a German singer by birth, but one who was really open to new styles from around the world – including lots of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes too! The set was recorded in Germany, with backings by Werner Muller – but the style is right up there with the best bossa charts of the time – set up with acoustic guitar in the lead, some light strings, and often some cool woodwind touches that spark the tunes with color while Valente sings in Portuguese, Italian, French, Spanish, and English. Titles include "Fale Baixinho", "Bruxeira", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Bahia", "Samba Di Una Nota", "Chanson Sur Un Seule Note", and "Le Chapeau De Paille". Next up is the Joia Moderna album by Alaide Costa – served up in that wonderful mix of jazz, samba, and bossa that makes her 60s recordings so great! There's a nice current of melancholy to the music at times – one that almost links Costa to an earlier generations of singers – but many numbers have light and lively instrumentation that really sets her vocals free – creating a lightness in the music that's also carried through in the lyrics – at a level that made Alaide a very important influence at the time, even though she might not be as well-remembered all these many years later. The set features musical help from Baden Powell and Oscar Castro Neves – and titles include "Samba De Nos Dois", "Se Foi Passado", "Ponto Final", "Encontro Com A Saudade", "Cancao Do Amor Sem Fim", "Gosto Do Seu Olhar", and "Lagrima". Next up is a full album of Antonio Carlos Jobim songs by Brazilian singer Maysa. The sound here is sad and dark – almost in the mode of some of the more obscure US vocalists of the late 50s, the post-June Christy crowd who took bits of jazz woven with their own sadness, and worked in a much darker style than the pop singers of the day. In a way, Maysa sounds best of all in this mode – and we almost like these albums more than some of her later, more famous work. Orchestrations are a mix of strings and woodwinds, handled by Enrico Simonetti – and titles include "Dindi", "Caminhos Cruzados", "As Praias Desertas", "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar", "Por Causa De Voce", "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce", and "Meditacao". Last up is a selection of tracks sung by and inspired by Dolores Duran – an important Brazilian singer in the pre-bossa years – but one who continued to have an impact on that generation too. Dolores sings "Solidao", "Estranho Amor", "Por Causa De Voce", "Fim De Caso", and "A Noite Do Meu Bem" – and the set also features eleven more songs written by Duran, sung by artists who include Maysa, Lucio Alves, Trio Irakitan, Dick Farney, and Elizeth Cardoso.

A rare harmony pop set from 60s Brazil – very much in the mode of some of the other bigger groups of the bossa generation, like Quarteto Em Cy or Os Cariocas – but served up here by a group of mixed male and female singers! Rhythms are light and lively – a jazzy blend of samba and bossa – and the singers strongly take the lead, with criss-crossing vocals that really make the whole thing sparkle throughout! There's a bit of the warmth of American male/female harmony groups from the 50s, but the production and language are very Brazilian – and titles include "A Menina Da Tranca", "Moca Da Chuva", "Azul Contente", "O Que Eu Gosto De Voce", "Joao Sebestiao Bach", "Palhacada", and "Vozes E Flores".

Luiz Eca & Sagrada FamiliaOnda Nova Do Brasil ... CD
Lazarus, 1970. Used ... $16.99
An incredible batch of Brazilian grooves – a rare Mexican album cut by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio, featuring early work by Claudio Roditi, Nana Vasconcelos, and Joyce! The sound is a swirling mix of late bossa and the baroque grooves that were coming out of Brazil at the end of the 60s – deeply jazzy, with some nice soulful touches – and very strong use of voices and instruments together in one sweeping sound that's immediately captivating! The whole thing's great – a lost recording that only saw the light of day briefly in the late 70s, and which is finally getting a proper release today. If you've ever dug Eca's work with the Tamba Trio, or any of the vocal work of the Blue Brazil/Odeon generation, you'll really love this one! Titles include "Juliana", "Ye Me Le", "Sa Marina", "Se Voce Pensa", "Las Vamos Nos", "Please Garcon", and "Pais Tropical". CD

A wonderful album of Joao Gilberto's early bossa tracks from Brazil – loaded up here with various numbers from other great Brazilian stars! The original album is one of the first few that Jobim ever recorded, and it's a masterpiece of understatement, recorded with arrangements by a young Antonio Carlos, and a soaring bossa sound that would soon make history. Tracks include "Discussao", "O Pato", "Outra Vez", "Doralice", and "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Se E Tarde", "Corcovado", "So Em Teus Bracos" and more.

A really groovy soundtrack for a late 60s Italian film of the "mondo" variety – one whose title literally translates as "Excuse Me, Do You Like Sex?" The music comes from the sublime pairing of Piero Umiliani and Angelo Francesco Lavagnino – both well-traveled Italian film composers, who seem to each be pulling out the grooviest sides of their talents here – using bossa rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, playful melodies, and some occasional weird instrumentation – all in shifting ways that really match the changing settings of the film! Umiliani gives us some of his especially great organ lines – the kinds you'll recognize from better-known soundtracks of the period – and the CD features a whopping 23 tracks in all, almost all of them pretty darn groovy!

RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
A dark-tinged set of vocal work from the lovely Lygia – a singer we only know from this rare 60s set for RGE – filled with great arrangements from maestros Gaya and Pocho, as well as bossa jazzers Manfredo Fest and The Zimbo Trio! The album's got a fuller, richer quality than many bossa vocal sets from the time – some of the moodier qualities of Brazilian female vocals from the previous decade, but served up without too much drama or overdone emotion. Lygia's sense of sadness is nicely offset by the lighter touches in some of the backings – a floating flute line, a tinkling piano, and occasional snapping snare to bring in a bit of warmth – and titles include "Quem Ri Melhor", "Historia De Uma Crianca", "Tempo De Sorrir", "So Por Amor", "Joao Ninguem", and "Encontro Com A Saudade".

The mood of the film changes a lot based on the directorial style, but the score's got some really wonderful moments that offer the best that Mancini had to offer at the time – including some really nice lightly dancing groovers that sparkle with a 70s bossa style – and others that have that cool, pillowy approach to sound that Henry was using on his great mellow records of the period. Titles "Salute To The Olympians", "Ludmilla's Theme", "Spaced Out", "Warm Up", "Soft Flight", and "The Race". LP, Vinyl record album

Lovely work from Lisa Ono – one of the first singers of the modern age to return to the genius of 60s bossa, and one of the few to keep getting it right over the years! Here, Lisa sings with studio help from Mario Adnet – that great contemporary bossa talent who's got a key ear for updating instrumentation without ever losing the charm of the past – keeping things live, spontaneous, and with just the right current of sadness – but all without ever just aping the styles of the 60s either. Lisa's voice is wonderful – maybe even better here than on her earlier records – and titles include "Upa Neguinho", "Roda", "Mas Que Nada", "O Cantador", "Lapinha", "Tim Dom Dom", "Sa Marina", "Bossa Na Praia", and "Chove Chuva".

Roberto's sound is clean and lean – very much in the spirit of Walter Wanderley from the same period, and backed here with a similar blend of snapping percussion, plus bits of guitar, sax, and trumpet that really further the groove of the set! Rhythms are a mix of samba and bossa modes – and the record reminds us a fair bit of Ed Lincoln's best records – with lots of groovers throughout!

Beautiful ballads in an old school Brazilian mode – not the lighter styles of the bossa nova generation, but the richer sounds of the scene before – although maybe done with the same sort of saudade as some of the Brazilian singers to emerge in the 60s! Rosana Toledo's style here ties maybe more closely to larger South and Central American styles of the period – but the arrangements still show that special sort of sophistication that always made Brazilian music so great in the postwar years – handled by Pocho Perez, and nicely understated throughout. Titles include "Alem Do Amor", "Francamente", "Tudo De Mim", "Distancia", "Raizes", "Saber Mentir", and "Perdendo O Seu Amor". CD

Maysa's more emotive qualities are nicely kept in check by the approach – and her vocals her flow along beautifully with the blend of strings, piano, and percussion used by Chaves – all presented in ways that remind us a lot of Deodato's best full orchestrations from the same period. The whole thing's nicely compressed, and never overdone – and titles include "Favela", "O Amor Que Acabou", "Mil Flores", "Ah Se Eu Pudesse", "Round Midnight", "Fim De Noite", "Cancao Do Meu Amor", and "Agua De Beber".

There's some really great tracks on here that stand out as some of the few groovy ones on some of Morricone's more serious soundtracks – which makes the set even nicer, because you don't have to go out and buy the whole soundtrack if you're only interested in the groovy tune. Titles include "Nadine", "Barbalu", "Giocoso, Gicoso", "Verushka", "Belinda May", "Voce Seconda", "Immagini Del Tempo", "Come Maddelena", and "Del Mare".

The groove here is light an airy – recorded with a similar sense of space as his better-known sides for Verve, but done with a feel that's a bit less polished overall – one that has some rootsier samba percussion at the bottom of most tunes, dancing underneath sweetly gliding melodies on organ and electric guitar! A few tunes have a bit of chorus vocals, which only serve to warm up the sound even more – and titles include "Palhacada", "Boato", "Nao Sabemos", "Agua De Beber", "O Samba Brasileiro", and "Murmurio".

RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

The record takes Valle's earlier bossa style, and filters it through a late 60s sense of baroque pop – filled with incredible sweeping arrangements, funky undercurrents, jazzy instrumentation, and lots of other cool touches – all sifted together beautifully by arranger Lyrio Panicali, and given a hip sound that's completely sublime! The music is almost a blend of soundtrack themes, experimental bossa nova, and deeply personal songwriting – all delivered with warmly crackling vocals by Valle in a way that goes far beyond language!

There's a brilliance here that's hard to describe accurately – quite possibly because the young Caetano Veloso is experimenting with so many new ideas, the album explodes with fresh energy on each new track! Offbeat bossa runs into weird production effects, subtle psychedelia, and heartfelt singer/songwriter material – all arranged by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, and featuring guest work from Gilberto Gil on guitar. The range of work here is tremendous – from the political "Empty Boat" to the fantastical "Lost in the Paradise", through other classics that include "Irene", "Os Argonautas", "Carolina", "Alfomega", "Chuvas De Verao", "Objeto Nao Identifcado", "Atras Do Trio Eletrico", and "Marinheiro So".

Four rare slices of work from the lovely Nara Leao – unreleased live material from 1965 through 1985 – really showing the tremendous scope and development of her music! The first CD features a live concert from 1965 – definitely with some bossa elements in the mix, but also featuring a number of songs with Nara in that darker, moodier style that would showcase on her albums in coming years – where the acoustic guitar was used with much more force than more traditional bossa recordings. CD2 features a wonderful live set from 1972 – with a very hip small group that includes Paulo Moura on sax, Copinha on flute, and Dom Salvador on piano – a combo that brings lots of jazzy changes to Nara's music. CD3 has Nara with more traditional Brazilian instrumentation – working with support from Os Carioquinhas, who feature cavaqinho, bandolim, 7 string guitar, pandeiro, and other percussion. CD4 features Nara back to working mostly with acoustic guitar – a show from 1985, right at a time when Leao was going back to a bossa nova mode – which works especially well here on some longer medley tracks. Nara Leao has given us plenty of wonderful records over the years – but this overstuffed box set really adds a lot to her classic years! CD

Instinct, 1993. Used ... $4.99
A really groundbreaking little set – the revival of bossa influence on the Japanese scene, presented here by a host of hip talents from the earliest years of the club jazz scene! The album's got a wonderful vibe through and through – a sound that was later taken up by bigger names from Japan, but which has a perfect sort of feel here – never too over the top, never too muddled up with dancefloor elements – and often turned towards subtle sounds and themes bring the record a nice sense of depth. The "bossa" here is one that comes more in spirit overall – as the album's never a simple copycat of Brazilian modes – and as such, it really shows the way that Japanese artists of the time were stepping out strongly to forge their own grooves and rhythms. Titles include the beautiful "Moonstone", plus Sama Nexusia" by DJ Matsuoka, "Breathing" by Skipjack, "Summer Rain" Gleeps, "Teriyaki" by Blue Bongos, "Living Day By Day" by Loud Step Market, "Message In The Music" by Rhythm, "Sol De Primavera" by Arco Iris, and "Love Bossa Style" by Amore Hirosuke & Love Machine.

Tracks include "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Mira" by Andrew Hill, "Recado Bossa Nova" by Hank Mobley, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "South of The Border" by Lou Donaldson, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Loie" by Ike Quebec, and "Latona" by John Patton. 14 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena Vol 2 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime bossa groovers from Italy! The first volume of this series was one of our favorite compilations that year it was released – and this second volume is equally as great! Schema groover Gerardo Frisina serves up a hand-picked batch of 16 tunes, mostly classic numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, pulled from the ranks of Italian soundtrack, jazz, and easy listening albums – all with a flair for making the bossa even groovier than it already is! Electric keyboards abound – and the rhythms run from dreamy to driving to slightly funky, always at the right pace for the material, and always making the set dance with delight! Titles include "Incontro All'Aereoporto" by Piero Piccioni, "Allora, Il Treno" by Bruno Nicolai & Edda Dell'Orso, "Avances" by Gerardo Frisina, "Wind" by Red Redford Sound System One, "Bossalonga" by Mustang, "Unreality Landscape" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "Susan Theme" by Daniele Patucchi, "Per Lei" by Stefano Torossi, and "Colpa Tua" by Giancarlo Gazzani.

✨✧ VariousNippon Girls – Japanese Pop, Beat, & Bossa Nova 1967 to 1969 (coloured vinyl) ... LP
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy, moddish, magnificent and sunny girl pop from The Land Of The Rising Sun – pummeling drums, jumping arrangements and groovy vocals from the mid-to-late 60s Japanese scene!

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Melt – Where Mellow Samba & Electronic Bossa Collide ... CD
Nascente (UK), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
"Melt" is a great way to describe the sound of this one – as Brazilian rhythms dissolve into modern production, creating a wealth of incredible music all inspired by the sunny sounds of the post-bossa era! The selection includes tracks from the current Brazilian scene, plus plenty more from the London underground of the past decade – a clear home to some of the more adventurous Brazilian grooves, and always a hotbed of cross-cultural activity!

✨✧ VariousOur Town – Jazz Fusion, Funky Pop & Bossa Gayo Tracks from Dong-A Records (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (Korea), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really unusual selection of music from the South Korean scene – music we never would have heard otherwise, which makes this collection a really great discovery to our ears! As the title states, the music has elements that include jazzy bits, groovy bits, and some more pop-oriented sounds – all with a tight, well-produced style that almost feels like a Korean evolution of Japanese city pop modes from a few years before – with instrumentation that moves between AOR production on the fuller tracks, and some leaner 80s keyboards and beats on some of the more stripped-down titles! All notes, artists, and song titles are in Korean – and with our limited language skills, there's not much we can tell you about them – but the whole thing is a really well-done, very handsome package that's got plenty to offer if you're a fan of 80s pop sounds from the East.

Frank Cunimondo TrioSagittarius (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 28.99
A fantastic album by one of the greatest funky keyboard players of the 70s! Frank Cunimondo may have never made it out of his native Pittsburgh during much of the decade, but albums like this will forever ensure that his name be known in the ranks of groovers everywhere! The album features Frank working with his regular trio – but unlike some of his other earlier sessions, this one's got a large amount of work on electric piano, which brings a whole new dimension to Frank's playing! The album kicks off with "Sagitarius", a 12 minute groover that runs along with electric piano solos at top pace, like some of Charles Earland's best work on the Leaving This Planet album. Next up is an 8 minute version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon", done with lots of funky work on the ARP, squeaking and grooving away in a style that would make Herbie proud! Side two begins with the 14 minute original "Slalom", a cool dark number that builds and builds, adding in more keyboards and getting slowly funkier, in kind of a Bob James mode. Last up is "Samba Nova", a short little bossa number that chills things down nicely. A great little album – and rare as hen's teeth! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAperitivo Volume Due ... LP
Apertivo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
Groovy compilation of rare Italian instrumentals – with a sound that's nice and loungey, with lots of organs, brassy grooves, and a mix of funk and easy styles that's very very fresh! When we first saw this, we were thinking "oh, just another Italian compilation" (even though we love most of them!) – but it's got a very different approach than a lot of the others, and it bubbles nicely with energy on nearly every track. Includes "Smash" by L.P. Bonsignore, "Jazz 4 Two" by Flabby, "Archi In Bossa" by U. Fusco, "Baby Samba" by Nelabi, "Raid" by D. Dell'Area, "Occhio Magico" by S. Torossi, and "Elegante Beat" by G. Ferroni. Nice stuff, and one we almost passed up! LP, Vinyl record album

The fab first volume of this legendary series – filled with great music, wonderful images, and a really wide range of sounds and notes on the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s!
