Jorge Ben23 ... CD
WEA/Tropical Storm, 1993. Used ... $1.99
Jorge Ben continues to take his samba soul groove into the future – working here on a sweet 90s variation of his earlier mode, complete with his own wonderfully soulful vocals in the lead! Instrumentation is a bit more electronic, but as with most Brazilian soul from the time, there's a lot more warmth overall than on American work – some rootsier percussion at the bottom, sweet guitar flourishes, and some nice horns too – all to really help Jorge's vocals soar on titles that include "Alcohol", "Cowboy Jorge", "Spiro Gyra Story", "Goalkeeper", and "Princess".

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the most amazing early Jorge Ben LPs, recorded at the end of the 60s, when Jorge was singing with a stone-cold soul sound. The sharp, tight arrangements by Rogerio Duprat & Jose Briamonte made tracks like "Pais Tropical", "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", and "Que Pena" immediate classics – while the percussion and rhythms of Trio Mocoto provide a good part of the unique backdrop. The album is a mix of funky samba, soaring Brazilian soul, and sweeping orchestrations that give the whole thing a jazzy finish – and it's some of the best work that Jorge Ben ever recorded! Other tracks include "Criola", Cade Tereza", "Domingas", "Barbarella", "Quem Foi Que Roubou A Sopeira" and more. CD

Titles include "Zumbi", "Balanca Pema", "Que Pena", "Chove Chuva", "Pais Tropical", "Rita Jeep", "Santa Calra Clareou", "Mas Que Nada", "Cade Tereza", "Charles Anjo 45", "Que Maravilha", "Bicho Do Mato", "Criola", and "O Telefone Tocu Novamente".

Rozenblit/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and soul influences that he brought to his first big hits – but recorded here in a way that's maybe even more frenetic, especially when piano lines spin out quickly next to his incredible vocals – with a style that's almost soul jazz at times! The whole thing's wonderful – a record that matches, if not tops any of his other 60s albums – and titles include the killer "A Jovem Samba" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Nascimento De Um Principe Africando", "Menina Gata Augusta", "Si Wanda", "Rosa Mas Que Nada", "Amor De Carnaval", and "Todo Colorida".

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk track "Ponta De Lanca", plus loads of other goodies like "O Filosofo", "Xica Da Silva", "A Historia De Jorge", and a great remake of "Taj Mahal" – probably his greatest cut ever. Great all the way through – and is a perfect introduction to Jorge Ben if you don't know his work, and an essential addition to your collection if you do! LP, Vinyl record album

Universal/Mercury (Japan), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
The start of an amazing legacy in Brazilian music – and a record that really lives up to its title! Jorge Ben completely reinvents the samba here – and comes up with his own new groove in the process – by blending sharp acoustic guitar lines with rootsy percussion – all at a level that's far more rhythmic than the used of the instrument in bossa nova. There's definitely a bossa element – but Joao's singing is a lot more soulful, as is the overall performance – and the styles started here not only launched Ben's career, but also had a huge influence on generations of musicians to come! Titles include the sublime original version of "Mas Que Nada" - plus "Tim Dom Dom", "Chove Chuva", "A Tamba", "Balanca Pema", and "Rosa Menina Rosa". Great stuff, and essential all the way through – we promise! CD

Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
An incredibly groovy record – and one of two rare sides cut by Bossa Rio – a short-lived vocal group handled by Sergio Mendes! The sound here is kind of an extension of Sergio's work with Brasil 66 – but Bossa Rio have deeper chops vocally, with both male and female singers – and stretch out nicely with a funky samba sound that includes a lot of Lowry organ from Manfredo Fest! Mike Wofford handled the arrangements, and set the group up in a mix of west coast jazz and electric Brazilian rhythms that's totally great – a warm extension of the 60s bossa vocal mode, hipped up slightly for the LA scene! The set includes covers of two great Jorge Ben cuts –"Zazueira" and "Que Pena" – plus great versions of "Girl Talk", "Eleanor Rigby", "Open Your Arms", "Blackbird", and "Spinning Wheel".

Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $34.99 63.99
A great samba artist from the Brazilian scene – represented here by three full albums from the 60s, plus a bonus disc of rare material well! Jackson Do Pandeiro takes his name from the percussion instrument used in his music – kind of a bigger, more drum-like tambourine – used to emphasize the vocals alongside Jackson's soulful lead vocal style! The music here is a bit fuller than 70s samba – larger orchestrations at times, but matched with equally great percussion – so that the rootsy core of the music is preserved overall. And, given Jackson's style of singing, you might even be able to call these sides precursors to later soulful samba-styled work by artists like Wilson De Simonal or Jorge Ben – a vibe that's not that different, just a few notches back historically. 4CD set includes the full albums A Braza No Norte, O Cabra Da Peste, and Jackson Do Pandeiro E Sucesso – plus a bonus CD of 17 rare tracks!

One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and takes Gil's tight songwriting and infuses it with an even catchier edge than ever before – really creating a fantastic groove that seems to illuminate Gilberto's lyrics even more than before – with a sense of personality and joy that really comes through, even beyond the barriers of language! The whole thing's wonderful – tight, but never overproduced – and very individual, despite an influence from American soul music. Titles include "Rafavela", "Aqui E Agora", "Ile Aye", "Baba Alapala", "Era Nova", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Balafon". LP, Vinyl record album

Judith Ravitz is an Israeli singer, but she's also got a love for the music of Jorge Ben – and she recorded this sweet little set at a time when Jorge's backing group, A Banda Do Ze Pretinho, were in Israel to back her up! The result is a set of tunes that draw heavily from Ben's late 70s Brazilian funk – but which also have new lyrics added to the tunes – penned by Yaacov Gilad, and sung by Judith! If you dig the sound of Ben's albums on Som Livre, you'll find plenty to love here – and titles include "Que Pena", "Dia De Indio", "Taj Mahal", "Ive Brussel", "Zazueira", "Boiadeiro", and "Que Maravilha".

Mad About Records (Portugal), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About February 15, 2019 (delayed)
Sweet funk from 70s Brazil – a totally great album from drummer Ronnie – aka Ronald Mesquita, the percussive force behind the Bossa Tres combo! This album's got a smoother groove than their records – great use of Fender Rhodes, gliding alongside sweet samba soul arrangements – in a mode that's a bit like some of the funkier 70s work by Joao Donato, with touches of some of the grooves that artists like Jorge Ben or Gilberto Gil were hitting at the time. Yet there might be a stronger fusion element at the core here – as the group also features Ze Carlos on tenor and flute, who shades things in nicely – and makes room for vocals from Loalwa and Jayyme Rocha. The album was issued by the Tapecar label around the same time as their classic release by Ana Mazzotti – and has a similar mix of fusion and Brazilian grooves! Titles include "Remelexo", "Atoa Atoa", "Esse Mare", "Visgo De Jaca", "Falsa Baiana", and "Albatroz". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ronie & Central Do BrasilRonie & Central Do Brasil ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funk from 70s Brazil – a totally great album from drummer Ronnie – aka Ronald Mesquita, the percussive force behind the Bossa Tres combo! This album's got a smoother groove than their records – great use of Fender Rhodes, gliding alongside sweet samba soul arrangements – in a mode that's a bit like some of the funkier 70s work by Joao Donato, with touches of some of the grooves that artists like Jorge Ben or Gilberto Gil were hitting at the time. Yet there might be a stronger fusion element at the core here – as the group also features Ze Carlos on tenor and flute, who shades things in nicely – and makes room for vocals from Loalwa and Jayyme Rocha. The album was issued by the Tapecar label around the same time as their classic release by Ana Mazzotti – and has a similar mix of fusion and Brazilian grooves! Titles include "Remelexo", "Atoa Atoa", "Esse Mare", "Visgo De Jaca", "Falsa Baiana", and "Albatroz". CD

✨✧ Gilberto GilRefavela (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and takes Gil's tight songwriting and infuses it with an even catchier edge than ever before – really creating a fantastic groove that seems to illuminate Gilberto's lyrics even more than before – with a sense of personality and joy that really comes through, even beyond the barriers of language! The whole thing's wonderful – tight, but never overproduced – and very individual, despite an influence from American soul music. Titles include "Rafavela", "Aqui E Agora", "Ile Aye", "Baba Alapala", "Era Nova", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Balafon". CD features 2 bonus tracks, including "A Gaivota" and "Sitio Do Pica Pau Amarelo".

✨✧ Salome De BahiaBrasil ... CD
Tommy Boy/Yellow, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
Paris club meets classic Brazil – all served up by the lovely voice of Salome De Bahia! Salome's got a style that's bit more soulful than any of the neo-bossa divas floating around the dancefloor these days – a vocal approach that's rich in tradition, and perfect for the set's reworkings of older samba soul and Brazilian funk numbers. Production is by Bob Sinclar, who brings in only a bit of his usual house groove to the tracks, and instead chooses nicely to stick mostly in more Brazilian-inspired territory. Titles include great versions of Jorge Ben's classics "Taj Mahal", "Fio Maravilha", "Mas Que Nada", and "Pais Tropical" – and other tunes include "Lanca Perfume", "Quisiera", "Bossa Rio", "Outro Lugar", and "Voce Abusou".

Gilberto Rodriguez Y Los IntocablesSabor Maracuya Desnuda ... CD
Empty Cellar, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 10.00
Far-reaching yet finely-honed Chicano soul and Afro Latin grooves from Gilberto Rodriguez & Los Intocables – a Bay Area combo putting a fresh spin on diverse influences, captured really well on a debut album that captures them so naturally you feel like they're right there in the room! A big part of the raw and real vibe comes from Gilberto's vocals, steeped in classic Latin Soul, able to bring an emotive and improvisational bent into a studio setting that's the right blend of gritty and smooth. The group is fantastic too. Trumpeters Carlos and Jorge Rodriguez can flow from Fania style to electric era Miles Davis in inspiration, with Ruben Sandoval on Rhodes and piano and Ahkeel Mestayer on percussion. Titles include "Bahia Caliente", "Ojala", "Navegando Verano", "Sudor Cafe Morena", "Entre Las Estrellas", "Sabor Maracuya Desnuda", "Limon Partido", "Sentimiento Azulejo", "Somos Los Intocables" and "Totonita Encantadora".

Titles include "E Isso Ai" by Paulo Lima, "Chega No Suingue" by Seu Jorge, "Riacho" by Guem, "Misapeque" by Sao Benitez, "Maria (One Rascal main mix)" by Bazedo, "Para Ti (Criancas mix)" by Malena, "Saudacao A Toco Preto" by Candeia, "Nao Adianta" by Trio Mocoto, and "Kriula" by Clube Do Balanco. 14 tracks in all!

✨✧ Louis Hjulmand, Bent Axen, Alex RielJazz Og Poesi ... CD
Louisiana Gyldendal/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual project – and one of the most compelling meetings of jazz and spoken word we've ever seen! The set features instrumental tracks penned by Danish vibes player Louis Hjulmand – each based around a different poem which is presented before the music – which is played by Louis on vibes, Bent Axen on piano, Benny Nielsen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums! Poems are written and delivered by Jorgen Leth, Jorgen Sonne, Klaus Rifbjerg, Robert Corydon, and Jorge Gustava Brandt – all in Danish, with a quality that's oddly dark in the recording technique – and seems to set a special stage for the instrumetal moments to follow. The original 10" recording is quite a rare gem – and titles include "Til Komeda", "Turistplakat", "Opbrud", "New Salesburg", "Tre Koncepter", and "Aldring". CD
