Jorge BenA Arte De Jorge Ben ... CD
Universal (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
Sublime work from the great Jorge Ben – a collection of recordings that are mostly from his glory years on the Philips label, a top-shelf batch of funky tunes throughout! The CD has a slightly different track list than the classic Art De Jorge Ben album, but the feel here is still quite similar – a brilliantly soulful approach to samba and other Brazilian rhythms, all styled with the uniquely globe-spanning sensibility that still makes Jorge one of the greatest living Brazilian artists! CD features a total of 20 tracks in all – and titles include "Taj Mahal", "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", "Menino Jesus De Praga", "Que Maravilha", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Ponta De Lanca Africano", "Adelita", "Pais Tropical", "Jorge De Capadocia", "Eu Vou Torcer", "Zazueira", "Zumbi", "Mas Que Nada", and "Filho Maravilha".

Jorge BenBem – Vinda Amizade ... LP
Sigla/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 32.99
A sweet little album from Jorge Ben – an 80s groover with a sound that's a bit of a change from his 70s classics! The backings show Ben picking up some modern soul elements from the US scene of the time – but these are also mixed with some rougher, rhythmic styles that are definitely Brazilian – which makes for a really compelling blend – quite similar to the samba and soul mix of Jorge's 70s records, but tuned towards the ears of a different generation overall. Bits of boogie mix in to the groove nicely – and titles include "Katarina Katarina", "Para Que Digladiar", "Santa Clara Clareou", "O Diam Em Que O Sol Declarou O Seu Amor Pela Terra", "Lorraine", and "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro".

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 18.98
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! CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies – in a nice LP-styled sleeve!)

Jorge BenBen E Samba Bom ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $13.99 16.99
Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that we never tire of! Every track's a winner, and the album glides effortlessly from number to number, grooving along with a stunning mix of instruments, vocals, and this incredible echoey production. Titles include "Vou De Samba Com Voce", "Guerreiro Do Rei", "Descalco No Parque", "Gabriela", "Saida Do Porto", "Bicho Do Mato", and "Zope Zope". CD

Jorge BenDadiva ... LP
Som Livre/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A great bit of 80s soul from Jorge Ben – a record that has ol' Jorge looking a bit new wave on the cover, but which is filled with grooves that are every bit as strong as any of his late 70s work! The soul style is very firmly in place here – a bit more mainstream than before, but in a way that helps Ben forcus his sound strongly – almost going for a pan-global approach to the music, given the way you can appreciate these tunes from a groove-heavy perspective, even if you don't know the language! His vocals are as wonderful as always, and although the sound is tight, the production's never too commercial nor too slick – a really great balance that comes off beautifully. Titles include "Ana Tropicana", "Energia Bom Bom", "Rio Babilonia", "Conquero", "Eu Quero Ver A Rainha", and a remake of "Taj Mahal". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1970. Used ... $19.99
A fantastically soulful album from Jorge Ben – one of his greatest records ever, and a key part of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album marks an earthier shift for Jorge – a sound that's still rooted in the samba influences of the 60s, but which also takes on a bit more soul at the bottom – thanks to rhythmic contributions from Trio Mocoto, who work here famously to help Ben shape the overall feel of the set! There's still a bit of larger orchestrations at moments, but these are used sparingly just to sweeten the sound – leaving the main force of the music to come from Jorge's guitar, and the cuica, percussion, and tamborim of the trio. The vocals are wonderful too – slightly raspy, and with a bit more feeling than we ever remember Jorge having on record – sometimes a bit intimate, yet always with an undeniable presence throughout. One of those records that still sends chills up our spines, year after year – with tracks that include "Oba La Vem Ela", "Ze Canjica", "Pulo Pulo", "Apareceu Aparecida", "Terezinha", "Mulher Brasileira", "Forca Bruta", "O Telefone Tocou Novamente", and "Charles Junior".

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 39.99
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious modes being explored by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo at the time – expressed here in some larger instrumental passages that shade the tunes lightly, while still letting Jorge step out strongly on vocals and the usual mix of tight percussion and raspy guitar. Titles include "Que Maravilha", "Rita Jeep", "Comanche", "Porque E Proibido Pisa Na Grama", "Cassius Marcelo Clay", "Palomaris", "Maria Domingas", and "Negro E Lindo". LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $9.99 11.99
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

Rozenblit/Audio Clarity (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 26.99
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".

Remixed versions of older Jorge Ben tracks – given a sound here that almost seems as if they're trying to push his work on the US R&B market. Most tracks are listed as being the "groove" version – and the beats are pumped up, the production's slicked down, and there's a general overall dancefloor sound that would make Jorge's work more palatable to a more mainstream audience. Problem is, it's hard to beat the soulfulness of the original versions! Titles include remakes of "Pais Tropical", "Dzarm", "Filho Maravilha", "Taj Mahal", "Alcohol", and "Syrogyra Story". CD

One of the few albums by Jorge Ben that was issued in America – a mid-70s set that brings together some of the best work he recorded for Philips Records in Brazil in the late 60s and early 70s! The work here is the stuff of legend – sounds that effortlessly blend samba and soul, all without ever sounding forced – and with an undeniably infectious groove that comes through strongly in Jorge's fantastic presentation of the material! His vocals are amazing – the kind that really grab you, even if you don't understand the language – and the rhythms are full of rootsy percussion and riffing acoustic guitar – plus some basslines that are very unique, and really drive the tunes. The whole thing's wonderful – every track is a killer – and titles include "Ze Cangica", "O Circo Chegado", "Morre O Burro Fica O Homem", "Paz E Arroz", "Oba, La Vem Ela", "Apareceu Aparecida", "Oba La Vem Ela", and "Errare Humanum Est".

One of the few albums that Jorge Ben recorded for the US market – and a tight set of tunes that grooves with a heavy samba soul sound! The album features new versions of some of Jorge's older tunes, done here with a small combo that mixes electric piano, organ, guitar, and lots of percussion into the grooves – a fresh, lively and exciting approach for the mid 70s period, but timelessly so – it's as incredible now as ever! The whole album's tight, lively, and soulful – and tracks include a madly percussive take on "Taj Mahal", plus "Pais Tropical", "Chegandos Os Alquimistas", "Chove Chuva", "My Lady", "Mas Que Nada", and "Jesus De Praga".

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".

The album has a raw, acoustic vibe – the kind of sound you'd expect from the cover photo of Jorge Ben and Gilberto Gil playing guitars together – and the style is maybe more in Ben's mode of the time, but with the acoustic qualities that Gil used on his album in 1971 – blended together perfectly, on long tracks that really have the spontaneous feel of both artists jamming together in the studio. Every minute of the double length set is great – and titles include a very long take on Ben's famous "Taj Mahal" track – done in a sparer studio setting than the original, with a haunting groove, and great vocals by both singers – plus the titles "Sarro", "Quem Mandou", "Nega", and "Meu Glorioso Sao Cristvao".

Incredible music from Seu Jorge – and that's saying a lot, given how much we've loved all of his previous records! This time around, Jorge really knocks it out of the park – by stepping away from some of his tighter styles, and going for a looser, more organic approach that's totally great – forged strongly with the cool combo Almaz, which features members of Nacao Zumbi, and bassist Antonio Pinto – the guy behind the great music in City Of God! The result is a record that's completely fresh, new territory for Jorge – but a set that also still holds onto all the best charms of his previous records too – and given that he's always seemed poised for superstardom and global crossover, it's even more incredible that he's made such a rootsy record like this! The record's filled with cool covers – all given the Almaz twist – tunes by Kraftwerk, Roy Ayers, Michael Jackson, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia, and others – completely reworked, and tuned up with spare instrumentation that's mostly guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "The Model", "Cala Boca Menino", "Girl You Move Me", "Juizo Final", "Cirandar", "Tempo De Amor", and "Rock With You". LP, Vinyl record album

Miriam's got a really lovely voice that sounds even better in a lighter setting like this than it does on the Bossa Eletrico work – and tunes are a mix of older Brazilian numbers from the 60s and 70s – compositions by Jobim, Baden Powell, Jorge Ben, and others. Instrumentation includes lots of guitar, cavaquinho, and bandolim – plus a bit of well-used sax and flute from Fredrik Kronkvist, another player with experience in electronica, but roots in more traditional modes.

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

A classic double-length collection of work by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – originally titled a "Foursider" because of the 2LP format of the original! The package is overflowing with greatness by the group – and the extra space allows the set to include some real gems from the later A&M years – a time when the group were hitting the charts a bit less than before, and really deepening their Brazilian groove! These later tracks are all plenty darn great – and show echoes of changes going on in late 60s Brazilian music – not Tropicalia entirely, but some of the groovier moments at EMI/Odeon and Philips, with traces of influences from Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, and Luiz Carlos Vinhas. 21 tracks in all – with titles that include "Ye Me Le", "After Sunrise", "Pais Tropical", "Crystal Illusions", "Mas Que Nada", "Bim Bom", "Look Of Love", "Chelsea Morning", "After Midnight", and their breakbeat version of "For What It's Worth".

Incredible new work from Trio Mocoto – the famous Samba Soul trio who were such a big part of Jorge Ben's work in the early 70s! The group still have all the funky flourish of their classic years – and they're working here in a setting that takes that sound, and respectfully touches it up with some larger arrangements, funky keyboards, and other touches that make the "update" work wonderfully, and which makes the album sparkle a lot more than it would if it was just some old grand masters going back into the studio! This one kicks with the energy of recent work by some of Brazil's younger artists – but has the solidity of a classic album all the way through. Titles include "Swinga Sambaby", "Mocoto Beat", "Alegria Contida", "Kriola", "Voltei Amor", "Nao Sei Por Que", "Nereu Nereu", and "Tudo Bem". CD

Mercury (Japan), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $34.99
Amazing! This is a very cool 19-track CD that brings together all of the Caetano Veloso singles from his first 10 years, and it's a great batch of material that includes many tracks that haven't been on LPs, or any of the CD reissues we've been stocking! As with any major artist like this, the "single history" of their work can differ greatly from the "album history" – and in the case of Caetano, this CD offers an excellent extra look at his career that reveals a lot of hidden sides to the way that he played upon the Brazilian market. Some tracks are straightforward stuff, in line with his classic mid-70's albums like Joia and Bicho, but there's loads of surprising moments, some noisy, some heavy with loud guitars, and some extremely mellow. Titles include "Charles, Anjo 45" (with Jorge Ben), "Ambiente De Festival" (with Os Mutantes), "O Bater Do Tambor", "Frevo Do Trio Eletrico" (1973 version), "Tomo A Repetir", "Ai De Mim Copacabana", "Yes, Nos Temos Banana", "Dias, Dias, Dias/Volta", "Pula Pula (Salto De Saptao)" and even a cover of "Let It Bleed"! A must for any fan of Caetano – and long overdue! CD

Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $4.99
The second volume of Phono 73 – a groundbreaking live concert that brought together some of Brazil's greatest artists of the early 70s, and which was one of the biggest musical events of the decade! The all-star concert was one of the first real expressions of musical freedom in the wake of the military regime – and it marked a bold return of exiles Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, amidst leading names in MPB that included Gal Costa, Elis Regina, Raul Seixas, Maria Bethania, Nara Leao, and Toquinho. Volume 2 features titles that include "Zumbi" by Jorge Ben, "E Com Esse Que Eu Vou" by Elis Regina, "Ladeira Da Preguica" by Elis Regina & Gilberto Gil, "Filhos De Ghandi" by Gilberto Gil, "Nao Tem Predao" by Ivan Lins & MPB4, "Pesadelo" by MPB4, "Jazz Potatoes" by Jorge Ben & Gilberto Gil, and "Baioque" by Chico Buarque.

MCA, 2002. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $59.99
A really great compilation put out by the folks at Red Hot – an organization dedicated to "Fighting Aids Through Popular Culture". Previous sets by the group have focussed on jazz, bossa, and other music – and this time around, the focus is Africa, currently suffering from a rampant AIDS epidemic. As a response to the problem, Red Hot have brought together a host of different artists in a set of new Afro Funk tracks that would do Fela proud! In fact, over and above the politics, the set's actually one of the best new Afro Funk projects we've ever heard – with a list of artists that includes Archie Shepp, Lateef, Gift Of Gab, Talib Kweli, Jorge Ben, D'Angelo, Femi Kuti, Macy Gray, Meshell Ndegeocello, Cheikh Lo, Tony Allen, Positive Black Soul, Kelis, and others – all coming together in a really wonderful set of tracks that crackle with excitement! Unfortunately, one of Aids most famous African victims includes Afro Funk pioneer Fela. As a loving tribute, the set's made up of new versions of Fela tunes – with titles that include "No Agreement", "So Be It", "Gentleman", "Shakara/Lady", "Water No Get Enemy", "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake", "Colonial Mentality", and "Shuffering & Smiling".

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosSonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao".

Tapecar (Brazil), 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album

It's no secret that the Brazilian scene was a hotbed of funk in the 70s – and this sweet collection serves up some of the best tracks from the time – in a heady mix of music that moves between samba soul, jazzy funk, and some more experimental cuts as well – almost all by Brazilian artists and musicians, but mixed with a few surprising global entries too! Titles include "Agora Chega" by Super Som Ta, "Avenida Atlantica" by Rosa Maria, "Lotus 72D" by Ze Roberto, "Jimmy Renda Ze" by Tom Ze, "Nebulosa" by Tenorio Jr, "Vale Tudo" by Sandra De Sa, "16 Toneladas" by Noriel Vilela, "Volks Volkswagen Blue" by Os Brazoes, "Trem Da Central" by Sandra De Sa, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Carolina Carol Bela" by Jorge Ben & Toquinho, "Naturalemente" by Marcos Valle, "Eu E O Meu Amor" by Antonio Carlos Jobim & Roberto Paiva, "Morro Do Barraco Sem Agua" by Lemos E Debetio, "Morre O Burro Fica O Home" by Osmar Milito, and "Tenha Fe Pois Amanha Um Lindo Dia Vai Nascer" by Salinas.

The package features some older tracks remixed, and some newer ones that bristle with heavy beats and the kind of bassy rhythms that have been big in Rio and Sao Paulo in recent years – although the producers and mixers here are from a range of global sources. The 2CD set features 20 titles in all – and tracks include "Taj Mahal (Felguk rmx)" by Jorge Ben, "Everybody Loves A Carnival" by Fatboy Slim, "Sensualizar (Nervo rmx)" by Rio Shock, "O Cavaleiro E Os Moinhos (Yousef rmx)" by Elis Regina, "Stuttgart (John Digweed & Nick Muir rmx)" by Tosca, "Toda Menina Baiana (Ashley Beedle's Black Bahia rework)" by Gilberto Gil, "Agibore (DJ Marky's Ye Mele rework)" by MPB4, "Aldeia De Ogum (Psychemagik remix)" by Joce Moreno, and "Put Your Hands Up For Brasil (Fatboy Slim edit)" by Fedde Le Grand.

A tripped-out batch of tracks from Brazil! These guys mix together a bit of funk, a bit of psych, and touches of Jorge Ben-like soul – into a blend that's really groovy all the way through, and which will be sure to please any fan of the Samba Soul groove! Jorge Ben's influence is all over the set – filtered through some garagey production that makes the tracks sound rawer than any of Ben's own work, and which give the guitars a nice fuzzed out edge. The whole thing's almost psychedelic at times, but has a fair bit of soul as well – and titles include "Gotham City", "Que Maravilha", "Carolina, Carol Bela", "Modulo Lunar", "Volkswagen Blue", "Feitico", "Espiral", and "Momento B/8".

Most of the artists here are the bigger names of the MPB generation of the 70s – but many are still very under-represented in the US market – which makes the collection of work here completely essential. The styles range from samba soul of Jorge Ben to the lyrical poetry of Caetano Veloso to the soulful drama of Milton Nascimento – and titles include "Ponta De Lanca Africano" and "Fio Varavilha" by Jorge Ben, "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Quilombo O El Dorado Negro" and "So Quero Um Xodo" by Gilberto Gil, "Quiexa" and "O Leaozinho" by Caetano Veloso, "Sonho Meu" by Maria Bethania & Gal Costa, "Caixa De Sol" by Nazare Pereira, and "Anima" by Milton Nascimento.

There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

This 1969 set stands as one of the greatest records ever cut by Gal Costa – done at the height of the Tropicalia movement, and featuring a sublime mix of styles that really gets the spirit of the movement right. Arrangements are by the legendary Rogerio Duprat – who effortlessly shifts the backings between stark electronics, sweet bossa, gliding strings, jazzy piano, and baroque orchestrations that dance around with a surprising amount of grooves! Tunes include some classics by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Gilberto Gil – served up in amazing new versions by Gal and Duprat!

A lost mid 60s session from famous Argentine bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz – maybe even more compelling than some of his other albums of the decade, in that the entire set is based on his own compositions! Ruiz is a hell of a bassist and an equally great leader – and works here with this wonderful group that has trumpet from Ruben Barbieri, alto from Marito Cosentino, and piano from Bubby Lavecchia – all players who have this fresh modern sensibility that reminds us a bit of the Italian scene at the same time – echoing American modes, but already finding their own voices and sense of rhythm – moving past conventional swing, but never outside at all either. Pichi Mazzei completes the group on drums – and titles include "Pablo", "Jota Ese", "Oda Para Mi Nina", "Lina Para Una Pelicula", "El Dia De La Carrera", and "Amigo Bud". CD

Other players include Kenny Barron, Jack Wilkins, Jorge Dalto, George Mraz, and Steve Gadd – plus bit of added percussion – and although the group is large, the overall sound is relatively lean – spacious and airy, in keeping with Baker's best moments on records like these, and always sensitive enough to let Hall's gentle work on the strings of his guitar shine through nicely!

✨✧ Ruben Lopez FurstJazz Argentino/Jazz En La Universidad ... CD
Melopea/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1966/1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two rare albums from this great pianist – back to back on a single CD! First up is Jazz Argentino – key work from Ruben Lopez Furst, a wonderful pianist from the Argentine scene of the 60s – heard here on one of his greatest albums ever! Despite the local placement in the title, the set's got a really universal appeal – a quality that easily puts Baby Lopez Furst in the company of Bill Evans, Hampton Hawes, or a rare few imaginative pianists from up north! Furst's sense of color and timing are wonderful – ringing out fluidly, yet always with a sense of surprise that keeps us hanging on each new note – nothing that's ever hokey or heard-before – handled here with a vibrancy that's simply stunning. Many numbers are trio tracks, but the set also features guest trumpet and tenor on two tracks – and titles include "Israel", "Un Abajea Duriente", "Los Viejos", "Al Este Del Sol", "Sometime Ago", and "Cartas De Amor". Next is Jazz En La Universidad – one of the real highlights of the Argentine jazz scene of the 60s – a seminal album from pianist Ruben "Baby" Lopez – easily one of that country's greatest jazz musicians in the decade! Ruben's got a sound that opens up with the lyrical sense of space and tone first introduced by Bill Evans, but he's also more note-full at other moments – playing with a command of the piano that would have made him huge, had he recorded on the American or European scenes of the time! There's a warm balance between his instrument, the bass of Jorge Gonzalez, and drums of Nestor Astratta – one that goes past conventional piano trio modes, and which really reminds us of our favorite Saba/MPS sessions of the period. Titles include "Un Poco Alegre", "Hombre Amaestrado", "En Tu Dulce Modo", "Hermosoa Amor", and "Necesitare Alguien Mas". CD

The set's a wonderful illustration of the way that modern modes showed up on the Argentine scene and very quickly made it one of the hippest in South America – a move that's signaled especially as Gato takes on two key Coltrane compositions amidst well-done versions of familiar numbers.
