Jorge BenAfrica Brasil (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 50.99
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

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 BenJorge Ben (1969) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
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

✨✧ Jorge BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... 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! LP, Vinyl record album

Seu Jorge & AlmazSeu Jorge & Almaz ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
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". CD

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one of the most important forces of the Samba Soul generation! There's lots here to love if you like the heavy grooves of Jorge Ben or Tim Maia – but the duo also have a really great approach of their own – especially in the way they'll trade voices back and forth, over grooves that also have plenty of back/forth action too! The record includes the amazing heavy piano/percussion jammer "Hipnose", plus the great cuts "Voce Abusou", "Kabaluere", "Se Quiser Valer", "Deus O Salve", "Nord West", and "Dalena".

Maria BethaniaA Tua Presenca ... LP
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $54.99 79.99
Wonderful early work from Maria Bethania – an album that's put together with a very sophisticated sound, and a really powerful feel overall! The orchestrations are relatively baroque – sometimes using strings in odd ways, other times bringing in bits of voices – all very much in keeping with the genius that was brewing at the time in albums by Gal Costa or Nara Leao. And oddly, the backings for the album are not credited at all – save possibly to Manoel Barenbein, who's listed as the director of the production – and we're guessing that Maria had a good deal to do with the overall sound of the set, not just the vocals! Titles include a wonderful groover called "Mano Caetano", done as a duet with Jorge Ben, and very much in Ben's best style from the time – and other tracks include "Janelas Abertas No 2", "Jesus Cristo", "Que Me Dera", "Folha Morta", "Mariana, Mariana", and "A Tua Presenca Morena".

Marisa MonteRose & Charcoal ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021 (delayed)
When this album was first issued in the mid 90s by EMI, it quietly glided onto the market, with very little effect. Over the past few years, though, the record has slowly been championed by a large number of American critics and musicians, and has come to be one of the most critically acclaimed releases by a Brazilian musician in recent years. The album's a mix of jazz-tinged vocal tracks by Marisa, with a style that certainly owes something to earlier Brazilian singers like Gal Costa or Joyce, but which also has lots of its own nice touches. Arto Linday produced the set, and Marisa runs through a batch of songs that includes versions of Lou Reed's "Pale Blue Eyes", Arnaldo Antunes "Deepest Night", Jorge Ben's "Balanca Pema", and her own "Enquanto Isso", sung with Laurie Anderson. There's also loads of guests on the album – like Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, and others! CD

Clara MorenoSamba Esquema Novo De Novo ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A great little project – Clara Moreno's jazzy soul take on Jorge Ben's classic Samba Esquema Novo album – but much more than a simple tribute record, and some of her warmest grooves in years! The songs by Jorge are great, of course – but Clara is really doing something special here, adapting the material in a way that honors the soulful integrity Ben brought to the bossa in early 60s – but working with arranger Paulo Malheiros in a lively (and often live sounding) jazzy approach that really opens up the material! There's a lot of piano in the mix,the rhythm section is solid, and Clara's beautiful voice is right out front – and we especially love the warm and unfussy vibe of the record. We knew we were in for something special with the unique take on "Mas Que Nada" that starts the record off – and the groove continues on the cuts "Tim Dom Dom", "Balanca Pema", "Chove Chuva", "E So Sambar", "Rosa Menina Rosa", "Quero Esquecer Voce", "A Tamba", and "Pra Causa De Voce Menina".

Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021 (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". CD

Odeon (Mexico), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Killer work from Wilson Simonal – a singer who brought plenty of soul to his samba! Simonal's got a groove that's somewhere in the territory of early work by Jorge Ben – upbeat, lively, and filled with joy – lots of very groovy rhythms that draw from samba roots, but inflect the sound more towards the hipper styles of late 60s Brazil. Backings are often full, with a sweet touch of jazz – a great blend that works perfectly with Wilson's amazing vocals! Titles include "Pais Tropical", "Mustang Cor De Sanga", "Vesti Azul", "Zazueira", "Silva Lenheira", and "Agora E Cinza". LP, Vinyl record album

Fast and funky samba tunes by Elza Soares – handled with a great 70s twist, one that brings the tunes up to speed with samba soul work of the time by Jorge Ben and Antonio Carlos E Jocafi! The feel is light and bouncy, but also very soulful – and the set grooves in a way you won't find on some of Elza's other albums – which can sometimes be a bit more playful. This one's really focused, with a very dynamic feel in the rhythms – thanks to great orchestrations from Dom Salvador. The whole thing's a real party throughout, with tracks that include "O Gato", "Barao Beleza", "ABC Da Vida", "Samba Da Pa", "Mais Do Que Eu", "Pulo Pulo", "Amor Perfeito", and "Cheguendengo".

Funky funky samba! Trio Mocoto are a unique group in Brazilian music. They're best known as the backing group for Jorge Ben during some of his mid 70s Africanist recordings, but they've also cut a rare few recordings on their own – including this excellent gem from 1971! The album's got a mix of Marcos Valle-like baroque funkiness and Jorge Ben Brazilian soul – with touches of American funk in the mix, including some occasional riffs that sound like they might have been lifted off a James Brown album. The group sing in a harmony trio format, pushing their vocals richly forward in a compelling tapestry of sound that fits perfectly with the jumpy arrangements. The whole thing's a classic of Brazilian soul, and a real treasure to have back on the market again! Titles include "Meu Pais", "Xamego De Ina", "Esperanca", "Nago", "Maria Domingas", "Aleluia, Aleluia", and "O Canto Da Ema". CD

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

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".

Groovy bossa gems from Tamba 4 – released in 1970 on Mexico's Orfeon label! This self-titled set is really kind of a rare footnote to the legendary couple of albums the group cut a bit earlier for A&M – but a wonderful one that's more geared towards uptempo bossa jazz than the more measured jazzy groove of the A&M work! The circumstances for the recording are a bit ambiguous, but it has the masterful pianist Laercio De Freitas stepping into the group in place of founder Luiz Eca – and the overall sound is tighter – with incredible vocal harmonies, piano and percussion loud in the mix. They choose tunes penned by Jorge Ben, Antonio Adolfo & Tiberio Gaspar, Cassiano, Milton Nasciemento and others – including "Pais Tropical", "Samarina", "Sem Voce En Nao Vivo", "Pensando", "Zazueira", "Correnteza", "Se Voce Pensa", "Juliana", "Lenga-Lenga", "Veracruz" and more.

The core elements are still a mix of funk, samba, and soul – but there's also a slightly warmer sound to the production – one that really ties the whole thing together, and maybe gives the group even more force than before! Riffing guitars snap alongside the lively percussion – and the trio trade voices in a mighty nice way – sometimes with a bit of backup from other singers too.

✨✧ Ze MariaTudo Azul ... CD
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A lost bossa organ classic – and one that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a rare gem from early 60s Brazil, and features Ben singing in the same soulful style as on his own early records – dancing lightly over grooves set down by organist Ze Maria, who has a wonderful sound that's a lot like Walter Wanderley! The whole thing's a dream, and features early versions of Ben's own tracks "Mas Que Nada" and "Por Causa De Voce Menina" – plus the tracks "A Vida Do Negro", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Tudo Azul", and "Samba Do Aviao".

Jorge Lopez RuizBA Jazz (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vik/Assencionale (Netherlands), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
Great early work from Jorge Lopez Ruiz – an Argentine bassist who we already know for his more experimental recordings in the 70s – already sounding like a committed modernist here at the start of the 60s, in very hip group that also includes a young Gato Barbieri on tenor! The titles a reference to Buenos Airies Jazz – music that really seems to reflect the hipper sound of that important national capitol – as Ruiz works here with a very cool group that reminds us of some of the best Italian modernists of the same time – able to absorb the best styles of the American scene, but deliver them with a very special flavor, and a surprising degree of soul! The titles here are a mix of numbers by Ruiz, John Coltrane, Gato Barbieri, and others – played by a group that features the young Gato on tenor, alongside Roberto Fernandez on trumpet, Ruben Lopez Furst on piano, and Pichi Mazzei on drums. Titles include "Pablo", "Like Sonny", "Village Blues", "Vicky", "Trauma", "Berklee Waltz", and "Hiroshima". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge Lopez RuizEl Grito ... LP
Acoua/Be With (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About May 28, 2021 (delayed)
❔
A brilliant large group performance from Argentine bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz – and one that's got all the fire and energy you might expect from the cover! The album's an extended piece in five movements – written, arranged, and directed by Ruiz on bass – but featuring some stunning solo work from Mario Cosentino on alto sax, Gustavo Bergalli on flugelhorn, and Ruben Lopez Furst on piano! The tunes step out slowly, but build fully – with a mixture of complex ideas and rich individuality that reminds us a lot of the Clark Boland Big Band, with with perhaps an even greater sense of space. The album's a gem all the way through – and movements include "Hasta El Cielo", "Mab Amor", "El Grito", "Tendre El Mundo", and "De Nuevo El Grito". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jorge SantanaIt's All About Love ... LP
Tomato, 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Jorge Santana's working here with Allen Toussaint – but in a set that's sometimes a fair bit different than some of the straighter New Orleans productions of the 70s! There's definitely a few grooves in the mix – but these are often a bit more upbeat, and almost clubby at times – a great showcase for Santana's guitar work amidst the rhythms, in ways that are almost more sharp-edged than before! A few tunes bump along with some classic Toussaint funk – but also in ways that are a bit updated too, less Crescent City gritty, and more New York smooth. Instrumentation is often spare overall – mostly a combo led by Santana's guitar – and lead vocals are handled by Jay McKinnon, with some support from the rest of the group. Titles include "Ain't No", "Feeling Good", "New York New York", "My Inspiration", "It's All About Love", and "Three Mile Island". LP, Vinyl record album
