Hermeto PascoalEu E Eles ... CD
Radio Mec (Brazil), 1999. Used ... $24.99
Recent work from Hermeto – some of the best we've heard in years! The record features Hermeto playing nearly all instruments, from piano, to flute, to percussion, to lots of strange little reed instruments. The resultant sound is incredible – and it shows that Pascoal has not lost any of his genius, or his sense of humor! One track features him singing into water, others have a jingle-jangle of simple instruments backing up his surprisingly melodic voice, and still others have a spare mix of bandoneon and percussion. Titles include "Chorinho Mec", "Viva Jackson Do Pandeiro", "Caminho Do Sol", "Vai Um Chimarro, Tche?", "Linguagens E Costumes", and "Parquinho Do Passado, Presente E Futuro". Amazing stuff – and a record of brilliance that we didn't expect! CD

Hermeto PascoalMusica Livre De Hermeto Pascoal ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Quite possibly the clearest moment of genius ever from the legendary Hermeto Pascoal – a tremendous album that helped reshape instrumental Brazilian music for many years to come! At one level, the record shares a sound with some of the fuller, richer orchestrations going on in the post-bossa years – especially the work of Edu Lobo and Marcos Valle – but at another, it's filled with the kind of inventive instrumental interplay that's always made Hermeto so great, but which has never come off so perfectly as it does here! As you might expect from Pascoal, there's some especially great reed passages – crafted in a flurry of colors and tones – but there's also a warmer, more flowing quality to the whole album – less of the dark notes and pointy edges that show up often in Hermeto's work from later years. Bits of strings help the whole thing glide tremendously – and the record's a genre-busting blend of jazz, Brazilian roots, and complicated arrangements – unlike anything else we've ever heard, and still one of our favorite albums of all time! Titles include "Bebe", "Asa Branca", "Carinhoso", "Plin", "Gaio Da Roseira", and "Sereiarei". CD

Hermeto Pascoal E GrupoFesta Dos Deuses ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99
A later album by Brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal – but a set that crackles with all the fire and imagination of his classic recordings! The mood here takes us back to Slaves Mass or A Musica Livre – a mad mix of catchy rhythms, tight jazzy solos, and an insane approach to arrangement – that fast-moving genius that we've never heard from anyone this well, but which Hermeto has used to touch countless later generations of musicians! The grooves are wonderful – very freewheeling, but focused – and there's some soaring reed solos that really give the album a great sense of personality – as angular rhythms burst into the frenzy, and move the music to the heavens. There's a bit of vocalizing on the record – but always at a level that's on par with the instrumentation – and titles include "Tres Coisas", "Fazenda Nova", "O Galo Do Airan", "Pensamento Positivo", and "Chapeu De Baeta".

✨✧ Mariana Zwarg with Hermeto PascoalNascentes ... LP
Equinox (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $22.99 28.99 About January 21, 2022
A really lovely album from flute player Mariana Zwarg – working here with the legendary Hermeto Pascoal, who also happens to be her grandfather, but in a style that's very much her own! While it might be tempting to say that there's some of the Pascoal tradition of complexity here, Mariana's music is more straightforward and tied to jazz – but always with that freewheeling vibe that's grace Brazilian variants of the music from the 60s onwards – which means that even when things are sophisticated, they're very organic – and vocals often come into play with the group as much as an instrument – effortlessly blending with the melody and rhythm. The whole set is really beautiful – like one of those rare treasures on a label like Som Da Gente or Pointer – and titles include "Lucas E Lena", "Acalanto", "Viva Hermeto", "Ventania", and "Na Carioca".

✨✧ Sean Khan with Hermeto PascoalPalmares Fantasy ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The deepest record we've heard so far from London's Sean Khan – and that's saying a lot, as we really loved his previous albums! Sean got his start on the broken beat scene a number of years back, and has slowly been evolving into more of a jazz-based artist – which he hits fantastically here in the company of the legendary Hermeto Pascoal, who plays Fender Rhodes and melodica on the record too! But honestly, even without Hermeto, Sean's pretty fantastic on his own – as his alto sax lines have this beautifully sharp edge, as does his work on flute and soprano – these soulful currents that almost rival recent work by Nat Birchall and some of his contemporaries. Other players include Ivan Conti on drums and Jim Mullin on electric guitar – and Heidi Vogel sings on two tracks, and Sabrina Mahleiros on one more. Titles include "Moment Of Collapse", "Waltz For Hermeto", "Palmares Fantasy", "Montreux", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "The Blonde", and "The Conversation". CD

✨✧ Hermeto PascoalSlaves Mass ... LP
Warner, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Easily one of the greatest albums ever by Hermeto Pascoal – a masterpiece of free-thinking jazz that combines all of the best elements of his work! At one level, there's an experimental approach to instrumentation that really grabs the ears – but it's also wrapped around a key sense of groove that holds everything together nicely, and which fuses the elements with a cosmically soaring approach that never lets up for the length of the entire set! Flora Purim, Airto, and Raul De Souza all guest star – and the album's got a really universal appeal that bridges US, Brazilian, and European jazz scenes of the 70s! Titles include "Mixing Pot", "Slaves Mass", "Just Listen", and "Cherry Jam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing. Cover has some very light wear, but this is a great copy overall.)

✨✧ Hermeto PascoalZabumbe Bum A (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A gem of an album from Hermeto Pascoal – right up there with 70s classics like A Musica Libre and Slaves Mass – and done with a similar sort of energy that goes way beyond jazz, way beyond conventional Brazilian music – into territory that can only be described as Hermeto-like! The set's got a mix of tight fusion jamming, off-beat reed work, and some of Hermeto's heavenly compositions – and although there's a good groove to much of the material, that doesn't stop it from being as experimental as always – not in a dark threatening way, but more in a soaring joyous one! Titles include "Susto", "Alexandre, Marcelo e Pablo", "Santo Antonio", "Pimenteira", "Sao Jorge", and "Rede". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo Vice VersaViajando Com O Som – The Lost 76 Vice Versa Studio Sessions ... CD
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A never-issued album by the great Hermeto Pascoal – recorded in the space between his 70s classics Slaves Mass and A Musica Livre – and every bit as amazing as those classics! The music here is fluid, open, and a fantastic mix of jazz and all of Hermeto's new ideas about musical structure – performed at a level that's highly organic, and with that completely individual vision that Pasocal brought to his sound from the start! This isn't typical Brazilian fusion of the time, but nor is it anything like the tighter sounds that Airto and Flora Purim were recording up in the US – instead, a musical mode that's completely in its own space, and which needs only one listen to convince you of the master's genius. The group here is overflowing with young talent – Lelo Nazario on keyboards, Nivaldo Ornelas and Mauro Senise on saxes and flute, Toninho Horta on guitar, Zeca Assumpcao on bass, and Ze Eduardo Nazario on drums – all important musical visionaries on their own, working together here to hit an even new level of creativity. Aleuda Chaves sings wordlessly on a bit of the record – and the whole thing has that blend of soaring sound and lyricism that marks Pascoal at his best. Titles include "Danca Do Paje", "Natal", "Casinha Pequinina", and "Mavumvavumpefoco". CD

✨✧ AirtoSeeds On The Ground – The Natural Sounds Of Airto (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Buddah/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $30.99 32.99
Easily one of the greatest records that Brazilian percussionist Airto ever recorded – a stunning blend roots and jazzy currents, and a set that follows strongly off his work in the group Quarteto Novo! The set's got contributions from one of his key partners in that combo – reedman Hermeto Pascoal – and like Pascoal's material at this point, the whole thing is maybe one of the most perfect realizations of the musical vision that Airto was going for! There's none of the tighter, more polished sounds of his later fusion years – and this is the record that will show you just why his arrival on the American scene made such big waves at the time. Flora Purim also sings on the record – and titles include "Andei", "On Sonho", Papo Furado", and "O Galho da Rosiera". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Maria Bethania25 Anos ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful tribute to 25 years in Brazilian music by Maria Bethania – and a record that's easily one of her greatest efforts from later years! The album's something of an all-star effort – with guest vocals from Nina Simone, Joao Gilberto, Gal Costa, and others – and tremendous instrumentation from Wagner Tiso, Hermeto Pascoal, Jaime Alem, Sivuca, and Jose Roberto Bertrami – all of whom help to give the record a sense of majesty that matches Bethania's tremendous vocals. There's none of the overwrought "tour de force" quality going on here – and instead, the guests all make relatively restrained contributions – always letting Maria keep center stage, in a way that shows their support simply, and subtly. Titles include "Quase", "Maria/Linda Flor", "Tomara", "Flor De Lr Embora", "Awo/Inhansa", "Palavra/Apesar De Voce", "Tocando Em Frendte", and "Logrador". CD

A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not much – and although guitar is sometimes used strongly, it's often not as noisy as in later live sides. Instead, the whole group gels together beautifully – an unlikely assortment of players that includes Gary Bartz and Steve Grossman on reeds, John McLaughlin on guitar, Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Hermeto Pascoal on percussion, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all given new focus, direction, and inspiration by Miles! Titles include "What I Say", "Sivad", "Selim", "Funky Tonk", and a great medley of "Gemini/Double Image". LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out (Brazil), 2001. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 16.99
Wonderful jazziness from Brazil! This group has a sound that's beyond compare – influenced clearly by the 70s work of Hermeto Pascoal, but much more tuneful, light, and dancing – vocals blending with piano, percussion, and a host of angular reed instruments! The sound is incredible – on a par with classic work by some of our favorites, like Pascoal, Edu Lobo, or Egberto Gismonti – that baroque brilliance and warmth that you can really only find on albums from Brazil. The set is quite long – with 2 CDs of work that include the titles "De Coracao Aberto", "Forro No Encontro Dos", "Curupira", "Arco Iris De Som", "Bota Para Quebrar", "Na Carioca", "Ao Pe Da Lareira", "De Repente", and "Doce".

Edu LoboSergio Mendes Presents Edu Lobo ... CD
A&M/Verve, 1970. Used ... $6.99
The first (and maybe only) American release by one of the greatest Brazilian singer/songwriters of the sixties – and a record that's quite different than any Sergio Mendes work of the time, despite Sergio's name in the title! The vibe is like Lobo's best of Brazil from the late 60s – a post-bossa set that's quite complicated overall – rich in filling, and full of sweeping production, haunting compositions, and great jazzy arrangements. Players on the session include Hermeto Pascoal, Airto, Oscar Castro-Neves, Tiao Neto, and Claudio Slon – and Sergio Mendes was involved in the arrangements, but clearly the main focus was given to Lobo – as the overall quality is much deeper. The record includes great recordings of some of Edu's classic compositions – like "Zanzibar", "Ponteio", and "Casa Forte" – plus, it's got some other tracks that he never did before, like "Crystal Illusions", "Sharp Tongue", and "Hey Jude".

Sergio MendesOceano ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1996. Used ... $18.99
A great return to form for Sergio Mendes – a set that's possibly his most Brazilian-styled album in more than a decade – and one that's done in that great blend of Brazil and soul that Mendes was doing so well back in the early 70s! There's plenty of Portuguese lyrics here – no attempt to cross over to a mainstream audience – and guests on the record include Simone, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, and Hermeto Pascoal – all of whom contribute key elements to really emphasize the roots in Sergio's sound. And while there's still elements from R&B in the mix, they're often used sparingly – in just the right way to warm up the tunes – and by this point in time, almost illustrate the way that Sergio's crossover efforts of decades back ended up influencing MPB in Brazil. Titles include "Anos Dourados", "Madalena", "Puzzle Of Hearts", "Capivara", "Anjo De Mim", "Rio De Janeiro", "Trilhos Urbanos", "Holografia Olodum", and "Un Oceano Di Silenzi". CD

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Home Cooking ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1976. Used ... $18.99
One of Sergio Mendes' most electric outings from the 70s – a tasty mixture of LA fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and the group's unique twin female vocal lead! The mix of sounds is wonderful – and makes for a really solid album that shows how much soul Sergio had soaked up in the decade he'd spent in as part of the LA musical scene. There's still a strong Brazilian element to the record – thanks to musicians who include Oscar Castro Neves, Claudio Slon, Paulinho Da Costa, Hermeto Pascoal, and Raul De Souza – but most of the lyrics are in English, and the tunes themselves have a blend of R&B and fusion that's plenty sunny and plenty soulful! Titles include "It's So Obvious I Love You", "Sunny Day", "Emorio", "Cut That Out", "It's Up To You", and the tasty instrumental "Shakara". CD

Editio Princeps (Brazil), 1987. Used ... $9.99
Brilliant solo work from Brazilian keyboardist/composer Lelo Nazario – done between his time in the groundbreaking Grupo Om, and the later, more famous combo Pau Brasil! The music here has lots of angular touches that belie Nazario's roots with Hermeto Pascoal – but the overall style is much more "out" than Pascoal, with a fair bit of angular, edgey jazz solos from saxophonist Teco Cardoso, and choppy percussion from drummer Nene. Other players include Rodolfo Stroeter on electric bass, Zeca Assumpcao on acoustic bass, and Ze Eduardo Nazario on percussion – and titles include "Post Scriptum", "Sete Leguas", "Valsa", "Anonima (version 2)", "Se (version 1)", and "O Elo Perpetuo".

Pearson plays some sweet Fender Rhodes on the set, in addition to acoustic piano – and there's some other wonderful instrumentation in the mix too – including flute and guitar from Hermeto Pascoal, making a rare Blue Note appearance – plus sweet flutes from Jerry Dodgion and Lew Tabackin, both blowing in kind of a CTI-ish way – as well as tenor from Frank Foster, trumpets from Collins/Shepley, and wonderful drums from Mickey Roker – whose inventive rhythms here really helps set fire to Duke's new ideas. Flora Purim sings on a few tracks – pre-Fantasy Records, and turning in some of her greatest vocals ever – and titles include a wonderful version of "Stormy", plus "Book's Bossa", "Gira, Girou", "Hermeto", "Emily", and "It Could Only Happen With You".

The group's a bit different – in that it's got a drummer, who brings an even bolder sense to the music than some of Piazzolla's drumless combos – and the tracks are nice and long, too, which also seems to inspire the guitar to take off on some freer flights too – almost as if the whole group is hitting a bit of jazz – or if not jazz, the kind of longform instrumental expressions that were bubbling up in Brazil in the generation of Hermeto Pascoal and Airto. There's also a bit of organ in the mix – and titles include "Zita", "Violentango", "Meditango", "Libertango", and "Adios Nonino". CD

Airto's joined on this set by Hermeto Pascoal – also from the Quarteto Novo group – as well as wife Flora Purim, bassist Ron Carter, and the always-great Sivuca – who plays guitar on the record. There's a swirling blend of jazz, Brazilian rhythms, and free-thinking soul to the set – one that's never been captured so perfectly on other Airto albums – and which has a lean, clean sound that's simply beautiful. The overall sound is quite rootsy, without many fusion touches at all – and Hermeto's reed work really brings in a great edge to the whole session – one that makes the album differ a bit from much of the other Airto/Flora work of the time.

Titles include a classic take on the tune "Bebe", plus "Andei", "Mixing (Misturada)", "The Tunnel", and "Frevo". CD

Now Again, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A contemporary record, but one that's got an amazingly timeless feel – like the best early 70s material from Brazilian artists like Airto, Hermeto Pascoal, or Egberto Gismonti! The music of Fabiano Do Nascimento has a similar genre-breaking quality to these giants – not straight jazz, but very jazzy in parts – not traditional Brazilian roots, either – but very schooled in the strongest elements from decades of creativity on that scene – all wrapped up in this fresh, new blend that's completely mesmerizing right from the start! Most instrumentation is acoustic, and relatively simple – guitar, percussion, drums, and vocals – but the arrangements are wonderful, and fold these familiar elements together in ways that are completely unique. The legendary Airto guests on the record – but the vision here is clearly that of Fabiano Do Nascimento – as he mixes together works by Hermeto Pascoal, Baden Powell, and other Brazilian composers with some bold new ideas of his own. Titles include "Forro Brasil", "Minha Ciranda", "Etude", "Primeira Estrella", "Tupi", "Se Ela Preguntar", "Tocatta Em Ritmo De Samba", and "Nana". CD
