Juca ChavesAs Duas Faces De Juca Chaves ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1960. Used ... $2.99
The two faces of Juca Chaves – one a witty samba singer, the other a straighter vocalist – served up here in a strong split album from the 60s! Side one features "satiras" – tunes that often have Juca's vocals cutting sharply alongside percussion, guitar, and some nice light woodwinds – with a lively sound throughout. Side two features "modinhas" – mellower, darker songs that often mix some melancholy strings with guitar, conducted by Simonetti. Titles include "Presidente Bossa Nova", "To Duro", "Nos, Os Gatos", "Nasal Sensual", "Menina", "Musa Infiel", and "O Tempo Passa". CD

MiltinhoMi Proprio Yo ... CD
Sonus/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $9.99
An unusual album from Brazilian singer Miltinho – one of his few 60s efforts recorded in Spanish, and issued by the Sonus label in the Dominican Republic! Backings are more Latin-styled overall – handled by Pocho Perez with a nice mix of percussion and brass, which underscores the subtle drama in Miltinho's well-crafted vocals! The overall approach is quite different than most mainstream Brazilian work of the time – and titles include "Ninguem", "Teno Un Rinconcito", "Mi Mundo Cayo", "Dos Palabras", "Mujer De Musica", "Esta Noche", and "Despues De Ti".

VariousBrasa 4 ... CD
Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. Used ... $11.99
A cool collection of late 60s rock and pop from Brazil – and a set that stands as a nice contrast to some of the "song festival" albums from the time on Philips and Odeon! Like those sets, this one presents up-and-coming artists working through a variety of material – but rather than showcasing new styles, the modes here are maybe more in the jovem guarda style of the mid 60s – a bit more slavishly tied to American and European styles, although a few of the tunes here are of Brazilian origin too. There's a bit more complexity and sophistication to the music than the chart pop of a few years before – kind of in the way that west coast pop rock acts were letting their hair down a bit by the late 60s – and titles include "Como E Grande O Meu Amor Por Voce" by Os Intrusus, "O Que Ha De Mal Em Mim" by Bitons, "You Only Live Twice" by Os Agitadores, "When Summer Is Gone" by Analfabitles, "Voce Nao Serve Pra Mim" by Amir Francisco, and "Travessia" by Edinho.

✨✧ Elizeth CardosoO Inverno Do Meu Tempo ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Elizeth Cardoso sounds really wonderful here – stepping out on some of the more familiar samba modes of her classics, but also mixing things up in nice ways too – using some mature, sophisticated styles that are served up by a mix of arrangers that includes Antonio Adolfo, Sivuca, Geraldo Vespar, and Radames Gnattali! Cardoso has the sort of voice that commands respect, no matter what the setting – and the variety here really helps deepen our understanding of her talents, especially as we haven't heard much from this point in her career. Titles include "Queixa", "Unhas", "No Tempo Dos Quintais", "Voltar", "De Repente", and "O Inverno Do Meu Tempo" – plus guest work from Baden Powell on "Velho Amigo", and Joao Nogueira on "Mulata Faceira".

✨✧ Djalma DiasDestaque ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked samba from Djalma Dias – served up with a nice undercurrent of soul on a few tracks, too! Waltel Branco handles the arrangements, and gives the record a great little groove – one that's a mix of percussive samba elements and fuller backings at points – very lively overall, and not unlike some of the best EMI/Odeon projects during the Blue Brazil generation! In fact, the mix of core samba and larger sounds is a bit like Wilson Simonal at his best – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Saudades De La", "Cono De Casa Boa Noite", "Minha Serenata", "Desgruda", "Num Arredo O Pe", and "So Lagrimas".

✨✧ Ely ArcoverdeEly Arcoverde Quarteto ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever from this hip Brazilian organist – a set that just features a small combo behind his lead work on the keys – in a mode that ties the album more strongly to the world of samba and bossa jazz than any of his other records of the decade! There's still lots of creative constructions on the keys, but they usually swing a bit more strongly too – given nice support by bass, guitar, and drums – on tunes that include early compositions by Marcos Valle, Hermeto Pascoal, and Edu Lobo! Titles include "Asteroide", "Deus Brasileiro", "Arrastao", "Sete Contos", "Menino Das Laranjas", "Meu Pajeu", "Vai Joao", and "Cancao Do Amor Que Foi". CD

✨✧ Joao DonatoMad Donato (Gozando A Existencia/Naquele Base/Janela Da Urca/Rarities) (4CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge addition to the 70s and 80s catalog of keyboardist Joao Donato – pulled from a time when the bossa genius wasn't getting as much time to record as before, but was still overflowing with fantastic new ideas! The set begins with a CD of rarities – including keyboard-heavy demos done around the same time as his albums Quem E Quem and Lugar Comum – then flows into three later albums that are all superb too – that post-bossa blend of jazz, electricity, and soulful currents that's continued to grow into later years too! Instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic albums, arranged with that brilliantly blue quality that Donato could do so well – and all the records are nicely understated, but extremely powerful too. Most tracks have vocals, but draw as much from the piano and keyboards as the lyrics – and titles include "Gol da Corei", "Palhacada", "Zra Zra", "Toshiro", "Olho D'Agua", "Na Raia", "Fim De Sonho", "Testamento", "O Fundo", "Naquela Base", "Nua Ideia", "Varanda", "Que Bobeira", "Baixo Zingu", "Lua Dourada", "Pelo Avesso", and "O Amor Se Derrama". 40 tracks in all – and an essential collection!

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".

✨✧ SandraSamba 35mm ... CD
Pawal/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This may be the only album we've ever seen from Sandra – a really well-crafted set from early 60s Brazil – one that mixes samba rhythms and jazzier instrumentation, all in a great accompaniment to the singer's fantastic voice! Sandra's got the depth of some of the female Brazilian vocalists of the pre-bossa years, but never falls into their heavier styles – which means that she keeps up a really great range as the album moves along at a nice little clip – balancing her strong lead with all these great twists and turns in the instrumentation. There's no arranger given credit – but whoever he is, he's one groovy cat – as you'll hear on titles that include "Tao Bom", "Caminhando", "Doi Doi Doi", "Sem Bossa", "Nuvem", "O Maioral", "Luluzinha Bossa Nova", and "Era Bom".

✨✧ Juca ChavesJuca Bom De Camera ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Juca Chaves relaxes in bed on the cover, but he's actually sounding a bit more formal throughout the album – working with great arrangements from Radames Gnatalli, always heavy on woodwinds – and with a sophisticated style that brings a lot to his music. The clarinets and other woodwinds give things a mature set of tones and colors – and titles include "Cantiga Para Yara Dormir E Sonhar", "Nos Irracionais", "A Cumplice", "Cantata Para A Condessa Alessandra", "Que Saudade", and "Por Quem Sonha Ana Maria".

Sonus/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album from 60s Brazilian singer Miltinho – one that features vocals in Spanish, not Portuguese – issued by the Sonus label in a pressing that was one of the few by the singer to ever get distribution up in the US! The backings are maybe more 60s Latin than Brazil, too – Afro-Cuban styles of percussion, and often some trumpets in the lead – shimmering and sparkling next to the deep, rich tones of Miltinho's vocals – on titles tha tinclude "Olvidame", "En Carne Propia", "Tu", "Veinte Anos", "El Diablo Y Yo", "Remordimiento", and "Amor Sin Bendicion".

✨✧ MPB4Barra Pesada – MPB4 Ao VIvo Nos Anos 70 (5CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. Used 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A really heft collection of unreleased live recordings by this great Brazilian vocal group – one that almost seems to double their catalog of albums from the 70s! MPB4 got their start in the 60s, at a time when Brazil was really in love with harmony styles borrowed from American groups like The Hi-Los and Four Freshmen – and while many of the other Brazilian groups used the vocal modes in a bossa style, MPB4 were always able to take things one step further – often going for musical modes that brought a different sort of complexity to their harmonies, which only increased as the group moved into the 70s! You'll hear plenty of that here – as the live recordings mostly just feature their voices with a bit of light percussion and acoustic guitar – leaving plenty of space for their amazing vocal interplay right up front in the mix. The set features five full length concerts on CD – two recorded in Peru, one in 1973 and one in 1974 – plus sets recorded in 1975 and 1976. CD

✨✧ Djalma PiresO Tempo Passa O Samba Fica ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Warmly soulful samba from Djalma Pires – a singer who's got a nice way of sliding into the groove, and a style that's maybe a bit gentler than some of his contemporaries – but in a way that still really fits the setting! Backings are in the best mode of the RGE label at the time – nicely bouncing, raw at the core, and never too overdone – which makes for a very personal vibe to the whole thing, and a completely performance from Djalma! Titles include "A Fonte Secou", "Obsessao", "Viva Meu Samba", "Que Rei Sou Eu", "Balanca Zona Sul", "O Orvalho VEm Caindo", and "Exaltacao A Mangueira". CD

✨✧ Various12 Brasas Para Voce ... CD
CNCr/Discobertas (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool collection of 60s rockers from Brazil – music that was part of the jovem guarda generation, right before the Tropicalia years – but served up here in a package that's a bit groovier than most from the time! Unlike some of the bigger-label material from the jovem guarda years, which was usually more mainstream pop – this set's got a bit more of an edge, and maybe a kind of indie-styled vibe – almost garagey at times, and handled by producer Joao Negrao, who brought together all the different artists in the studio for recordings. The guitars are recorded especially well – and titles include "Nenem" by The Sunshines, "Minha Mae" by Sergio Murilo, "Essa Gatinha E Minha" by Brazilian Bitles, "Quinze Anos" by Maritza Fabiani, "Amanhecer" by Os Inocentes, "Menino" by Jerry Adriani, "Voa Passarinho" by Golden Boys, and "Procurando Uma Flor" by The Fevers.
