Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
An unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo". LP, Vinyl record album

Dom Um RomaoSpirit Of The Times ... LP
Muse, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

OmOm With Dom Um Romao ... LP
ECM, 1978. Sealed ... $19.99
To us, this recording represents what was great about ECM in the mid 70s, searching improvised grooves that cross the lines between free playing, textural tone bending, ethnic influences and modern fusion, but without getting too new-agey. Om were a quartet of European improvisers, many of whom would go on to delve more fully into the free scene there: Urs Leimgruber, Christy Doran, Bobby Burri and Fredy Studer, and Dom Um Romao adds some great percussive touches to this recording as a guest. The set starts out with Um Romao laying out some expressive percussion before settling into the nice modal groove of "Chipero", which is followed by the more energetic "Dumini", a spacious classic ECM number "Back To Front" and the lengthy fusion excursion "De Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNu Jazz Meets Brazil – The Dom Um Romao Remix Project ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2002. Used ... $9.99
Brazilian grooves get a real workout here – as tracks from Dom Um Romao's Lake of Perseverance album are remixed by a host of young DJs and producers! The sound of the original album is greatly expanded – as the remixers are given really free range to do their thing, cutting open the grooves of the original album, and stuffing them full of beats, keyboards, and other funky touches. There's a strong element of the London broken beat scene at play here, and titles include "Sambao" remixed by Jerome Sydenham, "Apache Groove" remixed by Nubian Mindz, "Lake Of Perseverance" remixed by King Kooba, "Sanctuary" remixed by G Force, "Sambao" remixed by Catalyst, "Groovystation" remixed by Ian O'Brien, "Blue Bossa" remixed by Sonar Circle, "Mas Que Nada" remixed by Hallucinator, "Sambao" remixed by LTJ vs Ouvo, "Afro Blue" remixed by Ras, and "Lake Of Perseverance" remixed by Opaque.

✨✧ Horacee ArnoldTales Of the Exonerated Flea ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A lost fusion classic from the early 70s – one of the only records cut under the leadership of drummer Horacee Arnold, but a heck of a great little set with a soaringly righteous sound! The style here is plenty full-on, but a bit less rock-leaning than some of the other Columbia fusion of the period – thanks to a spacious vision on Arnold's part, and the inclusion of a fair bit of sounds from world music. Players on the set include Art Webb on flute, Sonny Fortune on soprano sax, John Abercrombie on guitar, David Friedman on vibes and marimba, Dom Um Romao on percussion, and Jan Hammer on moog and electric piano – and although there's a fair bit of guitar in the mix, the other acoustic elements are kept nice and high too – for a blend that's almost like some of the best Brazilian fusion from later years, touched by a slightly funkier sound! Tracks really stretch out nicely, allowing for plenty of solo space as they roll on, in a way that's almost a cross between Strata East and some of the more familiar mainstream fusion modes of the time. Very hip stuff, with titles that include "Benzele Windows", "Tales Of The Exonerated Flea", "Euroaquilo Silence", "Puppet Of The Seasons", "Sing Night Jar", and "Delicate Evasions". CD

Vince GuaraldiComplete Warner Brothers/Seven Arts Recordings (Oh Good Grief/Eclectic/Alma-Ville/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1968/1969. New Copy 2CD ... $27.99
A trio of wonderful records – plus rare bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Oh Good Grief – one of the coolest, grooviest albums that pianist Vince Guaraldi ever recorded – a set that's got the same Peanuts theme as his earlier dates for Fantasy Records, but which also features some sweet electric touches that only make things even better than before! In addition to his warmly vamping piano, with all those lyrical touches we love so much, Vince is playing an electric harpsichord too – which makes for some very groovy moments – in a cool quartet that features guitar from Eddie Duran, bass from Stanley Gilbert, and drums from the great Carl Burnett! All tunes are Peanut-themed – the music that Guaraldi wrote for the TV specials – but they're sometimes taken at a looser style that's even jazzier overall – as you'll hear on the classic "Linus & Lucy", plus "Red Baron", "Peppermint Patty", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", and "Rain Rain Go Away". The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi nicely expands Vince's sound of earlier years – by taking his lyrical piano groove and adding in a bit of electric harpsichord – plus slightly larger arrangements that feature a bit of electric bass, guitar, and just the right light touches of strings. The resulting sound is wonderful – as deeply reflective as some of Vince's better-known work, but with some cool late 60s touches that really give the album a fresh kind of feel. And heck, Vince even sings on 2 Tim Hardin tracks – "Black Sheep Boy" and "Reason To Believe" – using a great raspy style of vocals that we didn't even know he had! Other titles include a great electric version of "The Beat Goes On", plus cool originals "Nobody Else", "Coffee and Doe-Nuts", and "Lucifer's Lady". Alma-Ville was cut during Vince's late 60s hipster phase – and it combines work on piano with a bit of electric playing, plus hip LA arrangements that include drums by Dom Um Romao, guitar by Herb Ellis, and added percussion by Rubens Bassini. Tracks are mostly originals – short groovers and sing-song numbers, a lot cooler than some of Vince's earlier work – all dancing along in a sweetly breezy groove that makes for a heck of a delightful little album! Titles include "Rio From The Air", "Cristo Redentor", "Uno Y Uno", "Detained In San Ysidro", "Jambos", "Alma Ville", and "The Masked Marvel". 2CD set features 4 bonus tracks – "Oh Happy Day", "The Sharecropper's Daughter", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose (take 15)", and 'The BEat Goes On (alt take 14)".

Ithamara KooraxLove Dance – The Ballad Album ... CD
Milestone/JSR, 2003. Used ... $1.99
A relatively mellow vocal outing from Ithamara Koorax – a voice that was introduced to us from her appearances on some groovy Brazilian dancefloor tunes, including some of those from Dom Um Romao's albums! The style here is quite different – very laidback, and in the ballad mode you'd expect from the "love" in the title. Instrumentation is a blend of mellow Brazilian and American jazz styles – with work by Jose Roberto Bertrami, Dom Um Romao, Luiz Bonfa, and Nelson Angelo – on titles that include "I Loved You", "Love Dance", "La Puerta", "Man Alone", "Amparo", and "Someday".

Weather ReportI Sing The Body Electric ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful early work from Weather Report – one of the finest statements ever uttered by group, and a set that's got a bit more soul and warmth than their first album! The lineup's changed slightly at this point – still Wayne Shorter on reeds, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, and Miroslav Vitous on bass – but Eric Gravatt has replaced Alphonse Mouzon on drums, and Dom Um Romao's taken over for Airto on percussion – giving the record an even earthier feel at times! Despite the sci-fi promise of the title and cover image, the electronics are toned down slightly for this record – making for a set that's sometimes more personal, yet which also explodes with a new sense of majesty on some of the fuller tracks. The latter of these add in some extra horns and a few singers – used sparingly, but beautifully – and titles include "Unknown Soldier", "The Moors", "Crystal", "Surucucu", and "Directions".

✨✧ VariousBatucada Por Favor ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second amazing set from Mr Bongo – and like their first batucada collection, a set that's without comparison when it comes to drum-heavy grooves! The music here is all very specially chosen – killer cuts from years back, with loads of heavy percussion, and some great melodic elements too – all mostly instrumental – and not just from the Brazilian scene, but other gems from wider global sources too. The set includes 2 great cuts from Klaus Weiss' group Niagara – the 19 minute "Sangandongo" and the self-titled "Niagara" – plus a cut by Bob Azzam called "Batucada Por Favor", a track by August Martelli called "Sambalonga" – and classics like "Ritmo" by Meirelles, "Tombo" by Airto, "Shakin Ginga Ginga" by Dom Um Romao, "Ritmo" by Nelsinho", and "Coelho De Ritmo" by Coelho.

Bottletop/Mr Bongo (UK), 2007. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Mr Bongo collection of Brazilian grooves – put together in support of the Bottletop charity, and featuring a full bonus disc of remixes as well! Most of the tracks here are of relatively recent origin, but they've got a really classic feel overall – the warmer tones of 70s Brazilian jazz, the cooler rhythms of 60s bossa, and some of the freer dancefloor modes taken up worldwide in recent years! CD 1 features the cuts "Mar Afunda" by Os Novos Crioulos, "Amazonas" by Batida Do Corpo, "Toda Tercafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "E Isso Ai" by Paula Lima, "Urubu No Telhado" by Bazeado, "Cosinha II" by Dom Um Romao, "Injecao" by Deise Tigrona, "Nebulosa" by Tenorio Jr, "Goya" by Marcelo Salazar, and "Capoeira Love Affair" by Mr Hermano.

CTI/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stunning mix of talents that brings the heavenly piano and guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim into play with the lush, but light arrangements of Claus Ogerman – a swirling mix of post-bossa loveliness that redefines Jobim's sound, and opens up new avenues for exploration in sound! The production is amazing – pillowy-soft, but with a complex depth that's hardly been matched again – and although Jobim's the main player, other great musicians include Dom Um Romao, Claudio Slon, Jerome Richardson, Ron Carter, and others. Tracks include "Wave", "Mojave", "Lamento", "Batidinha", "The Red Blouse", "Antiguq", and the groovy "Captain Bacardi". Beautiful all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mr HermanoO Globo ... CD
Disorient/Mr Bongo (UK), 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best new Brazilian records we've heard in years! The album's a killer batch of Brazilian jazz tracks – with a mixture of classic fusion grooves filtered through a spot of 90s production – and the result is incredible! The band is fantastically tight – and features Dom Um Romao on percussion, Ben Mitchell on keyboards, and lots of other nice piano, sax, and flute. We love this one to death – and each time we play it, the record seems to open up on a whole new level of jazziness. Certainly one of our favorites from Mr. Bongo – and a darn nice piece of musicianship. Titles include "Corcovado" (not the bossa track, but a beautiful 11 minute jam!), "Chacha-mambu", "Jose Cuervo", "Uno Mas Tiempo", "Vasco Da Gama", and "Cubana Yama Ya". CD

✨✧ VariousBrazilica! ... CD
Suonaphone (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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!

Easily one of the best in this excellent series – as the package combines familiar bossa numbers with rarer, more obscure ones – going for a sweet jazzy groove we totally love! Getting past the nudie cover, the set's got a level of quality that's totally high – some killer tunes that bristle with the best of Brazil in the 60s – a whopping 18 tracks that include "La Rana" by Agustin Pereyra Lucena, "What Is This Thing Called Love" by Carlos Piper, "Danielle" by Tamba Trio, "Amor De Nada" by Victor Assis Brasil, "Reza" by Luiz Carlos Vinhas, "Buzios" by Bossa Tres, "Samba Nago" by Dom Um Romao, "Samblues" by Som 3, "Jangal" by Dom Um Romao, and "Senzala (Coisa #8)" by Moacir Sanos – plus "I Remember April" by Johnny Guitar Watson, a surprising early 60s track with a bossa piano groove!

✨✧ Norman ConnorsSlewfoot Collection (2 X 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Buddah/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1974. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A cool condensation of the great Slewfoot album – four of the best tracks on a double 7" single! The album's a really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black Jazz recordings with Doug Carn, than her later Philly soul sides – and Connors heads up a killer instrumental group that features reeds from Hubert Laws, Carlos Garnett, and Gary Bartz – plus wicked keyboards from Reggie Lucas and percussion from Dom Um Romao too! The fusion players are all super-sharp – and really make the whole album crackle wonderfully throughout – on a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks that include "Mother Of The Future", "Slew Foot","Chuka", and "Back On The Street". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Jazz (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic grooves from the 70s – tracks that are part of a great second wave of Brazilian music to hit our shores, then take off in a whole new direction! 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! This killer set presents a perfect portrait of that time – mixing familiar names with newcomers, or Brazilian recording artists with American studio talents – all in a batch of cuts that still stand as some of our favorite Brazilian grooves of all time – even if they didn't come from Rio or Sao Paulo. Titles include "Bahia Soul" by Luiz Bonfa, "Catavento" by Milton Nascimento, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Sivuca, "Braun Blek Blu" by Dom Um Romao, "Skyscrapers" by Deodato, "Sandalia Delia" by Duke Pearson with Flora Purim, "Samba De Flora" by Airto, "Consolacao" by Tamba 4, "Moon Dreams" by Flor Purim, "Andei" by Airto, "Almas Irmas" by Joao Donato, "Kathy" by Moacir Santos, "Tombo In 7/4" by Airto, "Rio Vermelho" by Milton Nascimento, and "Escravos De Jo" by Dom Um Romao.
