Continental 4Love You Gave To Me/How Can I Pretend ... 7-inch
Jay Walking, Early 70s. Very Good ... $6.99
The a-side's a so-so uptempo groover, but the flipside's the real deal, with heavenly harmony vocals, in the band's best tradition! "How Can I Pretend" is a great one, with that kind of raw east coast harmony sound that still sends us to the heavens after all these years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Novos BaianosOs Anos Continental 1973/1974 (Novos Baianos FC/Novos Baianos) ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1973/1974. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early albums from this great Brazilian group – packaged together in a single set! First up is Novos Baianos FC – a great 70s album by Os Novos Baianos – a wonderfully youthful group that was one of the bright spots in Brazilian music after the Tropicalia years. The band had a style that mixed folksy percussion with honest personal songwriting, plus occasional touches of elements gleaned from the larger influences in Brazilian rock at the time. The album has a sound that's a lot more intimate than later work, with some especially great work on guitar and bandolim, and great production on the band's vocals. Titles include "Sorrir E Cantar Como Bahia", "Dagmar", "Vagabundo Nao E Facil", "Cosmos E Damiao", "Com Qualquer Dois Mil Reis", and "Os Pingo Da Chuva". Next is the self-titled Novos Baianos from 1974 – rootsy samba and hipper 70s MPB influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music – a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s! The style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group's other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar, but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation, as well as some folkloric flute! Titles include "Reis Da Bola", "Isabel", "Bolado", "Miragem", "Fala Tamborim", "Ao Poeta", and "Eu Sou O Caso Deles". CD

A BolhaUm Passo A Frente (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Continental/Groovie/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99
Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the start of the 70s! The guitars are definitely in full force here, but the basslines drive things along strongly too – echoing some of the Peruvian sounds of the time, but with a bit more Brazilian sophistication – and definitely a musical echo of lessons learned during Tropicalia, even though the set's a fully instrumental one. Organ also figures in the mix too – and titles include "Bye My Friend", "Razao De Existir", "Um Passo A Frente", "A Esfera", and "Neste Rock Forever". Bonus tracks include "Sem Nada" and "18:30 Parte 1". LP, Vinyl record album

Wickedly cool work from this overlooked Brazilian singer – a record that's got a strong sense of soul in the grooves, and a great sense of imagination in the choice of songs! Celia sings early work by Joyce, Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, and others – with these shifting arrangements from the likes of Arthur Verocai, Rogerio Duprant, and Jose Briamonte – all in a mish-mash of modes that sometimes echoes the funky styles on EMI/Odeon of the period, sometimes even hits at Tropicalia touches – especially when guitarist Elody is given full run in the music to do his thing! Titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney", "Fotograma", "Adeus Batucada", "To Be", "David", "Durango Kid", "Zozoio Como E Que E", and "Lennon McCartney". CD

Walter FrancoRevolver (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Discos Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A bit of an oddball record from Walter Franco, and one we've really come to love over the years! Franco's clearly going for an experimental rock sound here – and while the hard jamming kind of works at odds against that at times, at others, the whole thing gels together nicely in a blend of offbeat guitar work, choppy vocals, and percussion that's almost in the mode of late 70s Peter Gabriel or early 80s Adrian Belew. Judging from the lyrics on the inner sleeve, Franco's been influenced by some of the same concrete poets that Caetano Veloso had been reading – especially on the structurally-influenced tracks like "Mamae D'Agua", "Feito Gente", "Bumbo Do Mundo", and "Revolver".

O TercoO Terco (1972) (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and dark, often compressed into the arrangements with an approach that's a bit like some of the more underground South American rock of the time. Side one of the album features 5 shorter tracks – "Deus", "Voce Al", "Estrada Vazia", "Lagoa Das Lontras", and "Rock Do Elvis" – and the second side features the 19 minute suite"Amanheger Total" – a soaring, building number with lots of changes throughout! CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Tributo Ao Sorriso" and "Adormeceu". CD

Tom ZeEstudando O Samba ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. Used ... $8.99
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Toc", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".

Tom ZeSe o Caso E Chorar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Wonderful 70s work from Tom Ze! The record's a bit more straightforward than some of his other records from the decade, and has a number of tracks with a samba sound at the base – but there's more than enough fantastic material to keep the record fresh, and Tom's writing is as great as ever. There's a vocal group that sings with Ze on many of the tracks on the record – but they also seem to sometimes act as a Greek chorus, in response to breakaway vocal passages that are dominated by Ze. The whole approach is very cool – that quirky, experimental vibe that Tom has always had in his music – heard here at the height of his younger powers. Titles include the excellent baroque funky number "Dor E Dor", plus the tracks "Sonho Colorido De Um Pintor", "A Baba", "O Sandalo", "A Briga Do Edificio Italia Com O Hilton Hotel", and "Happy End".

Crazy stuff! This is the record with the famous cover of a marble balanced on an asshole (!) – and it further refines Tom Ze's distinctive approach to songwriting with an over the top approach that moves far beyond the experimentation of Tropicalia! The record is incredible, with a mix of amazing songs that piece together hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil.

A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features the bonus track "Continental Square Dance". CD

Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Great work from Polly Bergen – breathy and beautiful, but still plenty lively throughout – thanks to some backings from Jerry Fielding! The record's got a sound that's a fair bit more modern than some of Bergen's other albums from earlier years – and Fielding's use of bright horns, vibes, and other chromatic elements really helps to give the record a fuller sound next to Polly's dusky vocals. Many titles are familiar, but they're recast in arrangements that have a slightly groovier 60s mode – one that further helps enforce the sound of the set! Titles include "The Continental", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Aren't You Glad You're You", "As Time Goes By", "Easy To Love", "Bye Bye Baby", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To".

Nino FerrerRats & Rolls ... CD
Barclay/On Sale Music (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from French funk legend Nino Ferrer – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love his records of the 60s! Nino first started out as one of the few continental cats whose energy could match that of the funkiest soul singers in the US at the time – working in a style that clearly drew from the UK mod interpretations of American soul, but with instrumentation that was even sharper than most of those singers and groups – often more directly influenced by the James Brown Band of the late 60s! Yet here, he takes that approach even further – and soars out with grooves that have a more sophisticated flow and a really great vibe, all while still holding onto the best core currents from before – vocals that take all these great twists and turns, and organ lines that flow far past regular rhythms and really illuminate the songs in a unique way. Titles include "Play Boy Scout", "Reminiscenza", "Meglio L'Amore Che La Guerra", "La Pella Nera", "Povero CRisto", "O Mangi Questa Minestra O Salti Dalla Finestra", and "Fratelli E Cosi'Sia". CD

Foreign Exchange, 2008. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $59.99
The second album from Foreign Exchange – the formerly bi-continental project of North Carolina MC and soul singer Phonte of Little Brother, and transplanted Dutch producer Nicolay – who take an even deeper turn into spacey soul on Leave It All Behind! Given that Phonte is singing rather than rapping, you'd be tempted to say that Foreign Exchange has left hip hop behind, but hip hop is in the heart and soul – and the group was born of the idea of hip hop as an evolving art form – so rhymes or not, it's still hip hop in a way. The spacey, jazzy melodic groove here finds producer Nicolay in peak form – a nice balance between thumping bass, beats and mellow atmospherics, and the mood is impeccable. We're pretty much stunned at how well Phonte is developing as a vocalist, with laidback lead and overdubbed backing vocals that go back the heart & soul comment above. A left turn for a duo that was adventurous to begin, with an excellent move to the next level! Titles include "Daykeeper", "Take Off The Blues", "All Or Nothing/Coming Home For You", "I Wanna Know", "House Of Cards", "Sweeter Than You", "Valediction", "If She Breaks Your Heart", "If This Is Love", "Something To Behold" and "Leave It All Behind".

The record is issued on Babs' own label, and lists Clark Terry, Melba Liston, Charlie Rouse, Johnny Griffin, Horace Parlan, and Ray Nance on the cover – although we're not sure if they're all on the set.

Polskie Radio (Poland), 1950s. New Copy ... $12.99
Stunning early work from Polish pianist Krzysztof Komeda – an artist who would blossom to great fame in the 60s, thanks to his modern jazz material and film scores – but one who's already at the top of his game on this set of 50s recordings for Polish radio! Komeda's on piano throughout, in a number of different ensembles – including a sextet with the great Jerzy Milian on vibes and Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski on saxes – both artists who, like Komeda, would help to leave a very special imprint on the Polish scene, setting it apart from most other Eastern European jazz of the period. Most tunes are American standards, but they often have these great original arrangements, and a wonderful way of combining the musical elements – on 16 tracks that include "Caravan", "Stella By Starlight", "The Continental", "Out Of Nowhere", "That Second", "Laura", "The Man I Love", and "September Song".

A Fuego Vivo is a live septet set with the latin vibes master out front of Mark Levine on keys, the great percussionist Panco Sanchez on congas, and Gary Foster on alto and flute. It's a pretty atypically frenetic set for such a late date – with wonderfully tight, yet still quite jamming takes on "Serenita", "Ponco Con Dos Amigos", "Mindanao", "Tesoro", "Santo Domingo", "Naima" and "The Continental". Good Vibes is a very nice set of mellow west coast Latin vibes – sort of an updating of his classic 50s San Francisco groove on Fantasy. The host of California players includes Roger Glenn, Poncho Sanchez, and Gary Foster. The record features a remake of Cal's big hit from the 60s – "Guachi Guaro (Soul Sauce)" – plus the tracks "Doxy", "Cuban Fantasy", "Good Vibes", and "Shoshana".

R&S, 2019. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Afriqua's got a continental reference in his name, but a sound that's very forward-thinking overall – music that's supposedly inspired by classics from Roy Ayers, Quincy Jones, and Weldon Irvine – but which sounds completely different than those inspirations! Instead, Afriqua's sound is almost a sci-fi reimagining of a new future in which the past has been pulled forward and completely transformed – almost as if someone took all the energy that 4Hero were going for 20 years back, then cut it up, slimmed it down, and put it back together – offering up a double-process reworking of old school elements. The cover bears elements of Chicago house party flyers, and even our fantastic WBMX radio station from back in the day – but the music is completely contemporary, and very distinct – with tracks that include "Noir", "Upstream", "Sociodelic", "Shout", "Dope", "Tema", "At Last", "Space Dookie", "Whatever Means", "Burns", "Native Sun", and "Zenith".

✨✧ Joe PassIntercontinental ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest records we've ever heard from guitarist Joe Pass – a sweet European session for MPS, and one with a very different feel than some of his US recordings! The setting's a trio, with a feel that's more open than some of Joe's pop-jazz sets from the 60s – and the rhythms are warmly fluid, in ways that allow Pass to play some great open-handed solos that spin out wonderfully – hanging softly in air, almost with Jim Hall-like qualities, although a bit more inside overall. The rest of the group features Eberhard Weber on bass and Kenny Clare on drums – and titles include a great version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Chloe", "I Love You", "Joe's Blues", "Watch What Happens", and "El Gento". CD

Jostereo & Radius EtcChicago2Paris Split EP – Gravity Daggers/Explore To Compose/ Zoooooooooned/The Point In 97 ... 7-inch
Radius, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
A bicontinental beathead summit with Chicago's own Radius Etc pairing up with Paris producer Jostereo! Jostereo's side is an impressive blend that kicks off with a bit of classical piano that quickly settles in beats and bass that subtles pulls it into heady instrumental hip hop, and gets richer from there with electric keys and even a bit of Prince-esque electric soul guitar. Radius balances it all out nicely on the other side with snapping bass and hazy beats from the start, but mellows out to soul jazz piano backed beats to close out his side. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousJukebox Jam 2 – Blues & Rhythm Revue ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sensational sequel to one of the greatest compilations of rare rhythm & blues we've seen from the deep diggin' Jazzman label – one that goes even deeper than the first!
