Ely ArcoverdeEly Arcoverde Quarteto ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Boleros ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $18.99
A set that's a bit mellower than some of the other 60s records by Brazilian organist Ely Arcoverde – but one that's still got a very groovy sound overall! As you'd guess by the "boleros" in the title, most tunes are ballads – slow-steppers with a great late nite vibe, which gives Ely plenty of room to work all this cool magic on the keys of the electric organ – at a level that's somewhere between American jazz Hammond players, and maybe the more exotic modes of an artist like Korla Pandit! As with other records, Ely finds a way to "sing" through the keys – almost an early organ-driven version of vocoder material – and titles include "Que Sera De Ti", "O Divorcio", "Sonhar Contigo", "Abraca Me", and the side-long "Selecao De Boleros".

RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing session of bossa organ grooves – and one of the few rare 60s sessions by keyboardist Ely Arcoverde! The record's done in a style that's similar to Ed Lincoln or Walter Wanderley's albums from the time – clean organ lines dancing over tight samba and bossa percussion – played by a small combo with a really driving edge that seems to set the organ notes on fire! But even better is a small vocal group that harmonizes with most of the tunes – mixing male and female voices with cascading lines that share a lot in common with Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas! The sound is really unique, and completely wonderful – dreamy 60s bossa at its best, carried out perfectly from start to finish! Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Sambao", "Sambossa", "Amanhecendo", "Telefone", "Vagamente", "Coalhada", and "Negro". CD

✨✧ Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Sambas ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully weird bossa organ from the lesser-known Ely Arcoverde – a record that stands in nice contrast to better-known 60s Brazilian organ sessions from Walter Wanderley and Ed Lincoln! The rhythms are often in a samba mode – arranged by Waldemiro Lemke – but Ely's got a way of playing the organ that often makes the notes come out sideways – kind of watery and fluttery, with a really unique quality that shows up especially on the solos – where it feels like the organ is almost singing! Most numbers feature some sort of horn in the group – giving the tunes a good little punch – and titles include "Ta Hi", "Carinhoso", "Fechei A Porta", "Favela", "Marina", "Rosa Morena", "Helena Helena", and "Eu Nao Tenho Onde Morar".

✨✧ Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Sambas Vol 2 ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the weirdest, wildest organ work we've ever heard – and that's coming from folks with a record collection stuffed with Jack McDuff, Jimmy Smith, and even Sun Ra! Ely Arcoverde is a bit in the territory of Brazilian 60s organ contemporary Walter Wanderley – especially in the way that he mixes his melodies with samba rhythms – but he's also got a very different approach on the keyboard, and often uses the instrument to "sing" – in ways that are very much like the "canta" promised in the title! At some points, we'd swear that Ely was almost using an early variation of a vocoder – not that the sound is 80s, but that he gets this really cool "voice" out of the instrument – as it moves between percussion, occasional chorus vocals, and some nicely jazzy instrumentation. Titles include "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Cidade Maravilhosa", "Madame Fulana De Tal", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Canta Maria", "Tem Bobo Pra Tudo", and "Agua Com Areia". CD
