Marcos ValleBraziliance! ... CD
Warner/Mr Bongo (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the most important early albums by Marcos Valle – a set of instrumental tracks recorded with lots of acoustic guitar! Even though Valle was well known as a singer and composer of bossa nova tunes, the set instead focuses on his instrumental work – recording his guitar ala Jobim or Bonfa at the time – with some larger arrangements from Deodato, who really brings a great feel to the set! The sound is tremendous – as sweeping strings soar over tight rhythms from drummer Wilson Das Neves – and Valle and Deodato set some magical moods on tunes that include "Deus Brasileiro", "Vamos Pranchar", "Tanto Andei", "Seu Encanto", "Batucada Surgiu", "Dorme Profundo", and "Os Grilos" – the first ever recording of "Crickets Sing For Anamaria"!

Marcos ValleCinzento (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polysom (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... $32.99
One of our favorite Brazilian artists of all time – stepping out here with a record that really lives up to all the faith we've had in his music over the decades! Back at the start of the 90s, Valle had all but disappeared from the recording world – but since that time, he's continued to mature and grow as an artist – really stretching himself, expanding his sound, and moving forward his groundbreaking styles of the 60s and 70s, which continue to influence new generations as time goes by! Here, there's some of the warmth of the soul records that Marcos cut in the 80s, including his collaborations with Leon Ware – but with touches of more unusual, more personal elements too – so that you'll have a sweet electric sound on one number, and a more pronounced acoustic element on the next – all made even more interesting by some of the collaborative help on the album's compositions, which include contributions from Moreno Veloso, Domincio, Kassin, and Emicida. Titles include "Se Proteja", "Pelo Sim Pelo Nao", "Rastros Traros", "Nada Existe", "Posto 9", "So Penso Em Jazz", "Lugares Distantes", and "Cinzento". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcos ValleMarcos Valle (1983) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Som Livre/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Marcos Valle might look a bit sad and forlorn with all those fruity drinks on the cover – but the record itself is a wonderfully upbeat session, and one that's very much in the same modern soul mode of his 80s groove Vontade De Rever Voce! As on that record, the sound here shows strong traces of Marcos' early 80s collaborations with Leon Ware in California – and the overall groove is a nice mix of boogie, two step, and smoother soul – a genre that we never would have expected during Valle's bossa years, but which comes off tremendously well here! There's lots of warmly stepping bass amidst smooth jazzy horns – and the tracks all have a compressed groove that keeps things nice and crisp – plenty classy, in a way that's supremely appealing if you dig early 80s mellow soul. Titles include a remake of "Viola Enluarada", plus "Naturalmente", "Estrelar", "Samba De Verao", "Dia D", "Mals Que Amor" ,"Fogo Do Sol", "Tapa No Real", and "Tapetes Guardanapos Cetins".

Marcos ValleSamba '68 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the grooviest Verve albums of all time – a rare American session from Brazilian legend Marcos Valle – and his only US album to feature vocals! The album's even dreamier than Valle's early bossa sides from Brazil – and the setting has some nice Verve-like touches from Deodato – who handled the arrangements, and brings a nicely airy, nicely jazzy style to the record. Most tunes are sung as duets with his lovely wife Anamaria – made famous by the album's landmark groover "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" – an English-language version of Valle's earlier "Os Grilos". Other titles are all great too – and sport English lyrics that hardly ever got much exposure. In addition to the great "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", other titles include "The Face I Love", "She Told Me She Told Me", "Pepino Beach", "Chup Chup I Got Away", and "Batucada".

Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A holy grail! This is one of Marcos Valle's best-ever albums – and it's certainly the one to best realize the larger scope he was heading for in the years after the bossa – that sublime mix of jazz and more expansive arrangements – a perfect fit for the growing sophistication of Valle's songwriting. The record is fantastic – done with a sweeping sound that still leaves us breathless after all these years – and put together with an approach to composition that is virtually indescribable. There's a huge amount of influences running through here, and the album is proof that Valle was one of Brazil's richest talents, never ceasing to perfect and transform his craft – even long after he could have rested on the laurels of his success! Tracks include "Democustico", "Revolucao Organica", "Vento Sul", "Paisagem De Mariana", and "Pista O2". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcos Valle & AzymuthBrazil By Music – Fly Cruzeiro (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cruzeiro/Tidal Waves, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A really unique little album – one that features sounds created in collaboration between Marcos Valle and Azymuth – all done as a specialty album for an airline in Brazil! The sound is breezy and dreamy – different than some of Azymuth's earliest music, but not that far off – and inflected with the warmer touches that Valle used on his records as the 70s moved in – that almost-soundtrack style of sophistication, but still lean enough to groove! The music is rich in keyboards from Jose Roberto Bertrami – and the whole thing's got a breezy vibe that would have been perfect kicking back in a leather seat in first class, looking down at the beaches of Rio below! Titles include the "Jingle Cruzeiro" – plus versions of "Asa Branca", "Samba De Verao", "Nao Tem Solucao/Marina/Rosas", "Ate Pensei", "Pais Do Futebol", "Zazueira/Mas Que Nada", and "Wave".

Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1998. Used ... $19.99
A fantastic collection that was part of a huge return to fame for Marcos Valle during the 90s – a time when he was emerging from obscurity and recording great music of his own – and also finally getting his due from some of his Brazilian contemporaries too! The collection features new recordings of Valle classics from the 60s through the 80s – done by a nicely wide variety of Brazilian artists, in an equally wide variety of styles too! Titles on this first volume include "Rockin You Eternally" by Ed Motta & Marcos Valle, "Samba De Verao" by Caetano Veloso, "Pigmalio" by Azimuth, "Black Is Beautiful" by Sandra De Sa, "Terra De Ninguem" by Gal Costa, "Passo Por Mim" by Nana Caymmi, "Adam's Hotel" by Eumir Deodato, "Seu Encanto" by Wanda Sa & Roberto Menescal, "O Amor E Chama" by Joao Bosco, and "Qurentao Simpatico" by Zelia Duncan.

Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most brilliantly baroque work ever recorded by Marcos Valle – an obscure 1970 album that collects together tunes from a few of his odd soundtrack experiments of the late 60s, plus a few others that are in a very similar vein! Marcos is really going over the top here – breaking way way out from his bossa roots, into a mode that has him pushing the envelope of Brazilian music to unheard of heights, with equal parts groove and sophistication, hardly ever matched by any other artist since! Things are funky one minute, groovy the next, and subtly sophisticated at other points – a completely captivating blend that's one of the best illustrations of Valle's genius we can think of. Titles include "Quarentao Simpatico", "Ele E Ela", "Dez Leis", "Freio Aerodinamico", "Os Grilos", "Suite Imaginaria", and "Esperando O Messias". Also includes the bonus track "Berenice"! New reissue features in-depth liner notes, song notes from Valle, and lyrics in English too! CD

✨✧ Marcos ValleVontade De Rever Voce (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Som Livre/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky soul from the great Marcos Valle – a great blend of mellow grooves and upbeat tunes recorded at the same time Valle was working in the US with Leon Ware! The style here is very similar to Ware's 2 albums for Elektra – both of which feature work from Valle, and include tunes that are also done here in Portuguese versions! Marcos makes a real departure from some of his earlier work here, and emerges as a surprisingly great soul star with plenty of talents for penning two-step tunes and keyboard-heavy tracks that glisten with a sweet California groove. A few tracks recall some of Valle's Odeon work – like the baroque instrumental "Camina Grande" – but we're most partial to the soul tracks that dominate the record, and which include "Bicho No Cio", "Pecados De Amor","Garimpando" and "A Paraiba Nao e Chicago".

✨✧ Marcos ValleSamba Demais (with bonus track) ... CD
Odeon/Copacetic (UK), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums! The record's very much in a moody bossa mode, and the orchestrations are wonderful – light, but never sleepy – really done with that unique new bent that Brazilian artists were using at the time, best heard in the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim. There's a nice sense of darkness here that doesn't show up on some of Valle's later albums – a really moody sensibility that works beautifully with the fragile nature of the tunes. A few cuts are originals by Valle, and others are familiar bossa tracks – with titles that include "Vivo Sonhando", "Moca Flor", "Sonho De Maria", "E Vem O Sol", "Tudo De Voce", and "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal". Also features the bonus track "Vamos Pranchar". CD

One of Marcos Valle's most strangely beautiful albums – a set that really his him stepping off strongly from his bossa nova years – really moving into mindblowing music with a range of styles that's simply incredible! There's definitely a bit of bossa at the core, but the larger orchestrations are much more complex, and plenty darn groovy – bringing in some complicated jazz changes, a bit of soul, and even a touch of funk – making the first time that Valle ever worked in such a mode. The overall sound's nearly impossible to describe, but that's what makes the record so great – possibly the best place to start if you've ever wondered why Valle's gotten so much attention from the worldwide groove scene over the years! Titles include "Ao Amigo Tom", "O Cafona", "Minha Voz Vira Do Sol Da America", "Paz E Futebol", "Com Mais De 30", "Garra", "Wanda Vidal", and "Black is Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest records ever by the legendary Marcos Valle – a set of pure genius that's beyond description – easily one of the key records that's got him so well-remembered in recent years! The record takes Valle's earlier bossa style, and filters it through a late 60s sense of baroque pop – filled with incredible sweeping arrangements, funky undercurrents, jazzy instrumentation, and lots of other cool touches – all sifted together beautifully by arranger Lyrio Panicali, and given a hip sound that's completely sublime! The music is almost a blend of soundtrack themes, experimental bossa nova, and deeply personal songwriting – all delivered with warmly crackling vocals by Valle in a way that goes far beyond language! Titles include "Frevo Novo", "O Evangelho Segundo San Quentin", "Mentira Carioca", "Samba De Verao 2", "Azimuth", and "Mustang Cor De Sangue". LP, Vinyl record album

Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An insanely wonderful album that will always remain one of the all-time favorites of the Dusty Groove staff! This beautiful batch of tracks by Brazilian singer/songwriter Marcos Valle has him pushing waaaay past his bossa work of the 60s – into a cool 70s mix of electronics and sexy scoring, for a sound that's a mix of Brazilian rhythms with other styles that evoke Italian soundtracks and French pop backing. That description hardly does the record justice, though, because the whole thing's wonderful – and it's got a feeling that's unlike anything else we've ever stocked – every bit as warmly watery as the image of Marcos in a swimming pool on the cover. It's no wonder that the album was one of Valle's last great recordings – because with tracks as good as "Mentira", "Mais Do Que Valsa", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Samba Fatal", and "Tiu-Ba-La-Quieba", it's hard to top yourself!

Far Out (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully groovy work from Marcos Valle – one of the artists who first inspired us to start a record store many years ago! Marcos is back, and in very soulful formation – working here in a mode that recalls some of his fantastic soul-based sounds in the early 80s – including his great collaborations with the legendary Leon Ware! The tunes are upbeat and funky, but still have all the personal warmth that Valle brings to his music – a special blend that few folks could ever touch, even back in the day – and which, all these many years later, reminds us just how distinct the music of Marcos has always been. Valle sings and plays plenty of great keyboards – and the whole thing was produced and arranged by Daniel Maunick, a perfect partner in crime for Marcos. Titles include "Minha Roma", "Olha Quem Ta Chengado", "Sempre", "Sitancia", "Vou Amanha Saber", "Odisseia", and "Alma". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcos e Sergio Paulo Valle with AzymuthO Fabuloso Fittipaldi – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Mercury/Le Vieux Renard (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A totally rare gem from Marcos Valle – and one of his most unusual recordings! The album is from the soundtrack from a film about the famous Brazilian race car driver Emerson Fittipaldi – and the tracks are a very unusual mix of music by Valle with some spoken passages that might be interviews from the film. You may recognize the theme "Fittipaldi Show", as it's a wonderful groover played by Azymuth that's shown up in a number of comps over the years – and most of the rest of the tracks are played by Azymuth, too – and they have an incredible sound that's very different than the group's later work, and which sounds a lot more like Valle's work from the time. The sound is spacious and soaring, but with lots of jazzy and groovy elements – and titles include "Vinheta I", "Fittipaldi Show", "Vitoria", "Rindt", and "Acidente". LP, Vinyl record album

Production and arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – which will give you an idea of the creativity that went into the record – as Verocai creates all these ambitious grooves that are very much in the best territory of some of the funky Marcos Valle work at the start of the 70s – basslines dipping under strings, all topped with Celia's wonderful vocals – which have a power here that we've never heard on other records – almost a Gal Costa sort of touch! Tracks include tunes by Valle, Verocai, and others – and titles include "Em Familia", "Mia", "Vida De Artista", "Dominus Tecum", "Ay Adelita", "Toda Quarta Feira Depois Do Amor", "A Hora E Essa", "E Preciso Dizer ADeus", and "Badalacao".

Dome (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic little record from Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick – served up by a project with a slightly different vibe than his famous group Incognito – but a sound that's every bit as soulful! There's maybe a bit more jazz in the mix here – a focus even more on the great instrumentalists that Bluey works with – with long keyboard solos from the leader himself, plus trumpet from Dominic Glover, piano from Matt Cooper, guitar from Francisco Sales and Jim Mullen, and some other great contributions too! There's definitely still some vocals on the set – work from Imaani, Joao Caetano, and Natalie Williams – but a good portion of the set is instrumental too. Titles include a great cover of Marcos Valle's "Vontade De Rever Voce", the Harry Whitaker tune "Send Me Your Feelings", and (surprisingly!) the Christopher Cross AOR standard "Ride Like The Wind" – redone here as a beautifully soulful tune. But the best stuff might be the original tunes – including "The Stallion Rides Again", "Calling Mr Wolf", "Refugee", and "All Mine" – plus the longer "Krabi Suite (parts 1 to 5)", which takes up most of the end of the album.

The Cry Babies serve up a sound that's beyond compare – American funk and soul influences played on organ, guitar, and sax, filtered through some really wild post-Tropicalia production! The result is a really catchy batch of grooves – almost what you'd imagine if Os Mutantes made a funk record, or if Kool & the Gang smoked a bag of weed on the beaches at Rio, then stumbled into the studios to record with Marcos Valle. Titles include "Hey Blood", "Day Dream", "It's My Thing", "Blas Blas Blas Soul", "Questions 67/68", "Caminhos Diabolicos", and "Kool & The Gang". LP, Vinyl record album

The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul – as Tim brings in some rootsier elements from local musical styles, and even some of the trippier elements that were running through Brazilian music in the wake of Tropicalia – all to make for this heady brew of sounds that's completely unique, and completely wonderful all the way through! There's plenty of tracks here that would fit well alongside both familiar soul, and the modes of funky artists like Marcos Valle at the time – and the set also features work on guitar and backup vocals by Cassiano, who'd soon go onto become a Brazilian soul star on his own. Titles include the break-heavy "Padre Cicero" and "Voce Fingiu" – plus "Tributo A Booker Pittman", "Cristina No 2", "Jurema", "Flamengo", "Corone Antonio Bento", and "Primavera".

Maybe the most fantastic record to date from the hands of Adrian Younge – a project done in collaboration with Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and one that features guest appearances from some of the musical giants who first inspired Dusty Groove many years Back! The core energy of the set comes from Younge and Muhammad – who are in a similar funky soul groove as their previous Midnight Hour recording serving up a blend of jazz and soul in a mode that clearly draws a lot of 70s inspiration, but which also has this very fresh, contemporary energy too. Yet there's also a strong difference here once each of the guests step into the mix – a stellar lineup that features alto from Gary Bartz, Fender Rhodes from Marcos Valle and Joao Donato, flute from Brian Jackson, drums from Ivan Mamao Conti, and Hammond B3 from the great Doug Carn – all players who really up the jazz ante for the record, and make the whole thing sound even deeper than most of Younge's other recordings. Titles include "Distant Mode", "Nancy Wilson, "Down Deep", "Apocaliptico", "Jazz Is Dead", "Hey Lover", "Nao Saia Da Praca", and "Conexao". CD

The core energy of the set comes from Younge and Muhammad – who are in a similar funky soul groove as their previous Midnight Hour recording serving up a blend of jazz and soul in a mode that clearly draws a lot of 70s inspiration, but which also has this very fresh, contemporary energy too. Yet there's also a strong difference here once each of the guests step into the mix – a stellar lineup that features alto from Gary Bartz, Fender Rhodes from Marcos Valle and Joao Donato, flute from Brian Jackson, drums from Ivan Mamao Conti, and Hammond B3 from the great Doug Carn – all players who really up the jazz ante for the record, and make the whole thing sound even deeper than most of Younge's other recordings. Titles include "Distant Mode", "Nancy Wilson, "Down Deep", "Apocaliptico", "Jazz Is Dead", "Hey Lover", "Nao Saia Da Praca", and "Conexao". LP, Vinyl record album

Audiopharm (Germany), 2002. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Hey, don't forget: when it's winter in Rio, it's summer up here – which means that whatever the season, you'll get a full blend of sunny bossa from this great box set! Like others in the series, this one blends together the "Brazil" and "electro" – in a style that recalls recent work from the British, German, and Italian scenes – and which features some of the best of the bossa-dancefloor crowd.

VariousBrazilectro 8 – Latin Flavoured Club Tunes ... CD
Audiopharm (Germany), 2006. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
These guys keep on going strong with Brazilectro – one of those compilation series that we should be suspicious of, but which always turns out to be better than we'd think! The real strength here is the choice of material – some of the best bits from a variety of contemporary labels that we already stock, filtered through so that the quality level remains quite high, and the tunes all have real roots and a sense of depth – not just some quickie studio work for a remix project! The overall sound has opened up a bit – allowing a number of Latin influences besides the bossa that first inspired the series – and the 2CD set features 27 titles that include "Roda Piao (Spiritual South rmx)" by Azymuth, "Mi Swing Es Tropical" by Quantic & Nickodemus, "Vamos Irmanos" by Ed Royal & DJ Enne, "Not With Me" by Jojo Effect, "Valeu" by Marcos Valle with Joyce, "Sunday" by DJ Day, "Sou Da Pasada (7 Samurai Afroraduna rmx)" by Jorge Ben, "Early Daiquiris" by Club Des Belugas, "Watermelon Man (Dan The Automator mix)" by Poncho Sanchez, "Dirty Old Bossa Nova" by Visioneers, "In The Back Of The Car (Nostalgia 77 rmx)" by Emo, "To The Full Every Minute (Yam Who rework)" by Big Bang, and "Ernestine (Lemon rmx)" by Joe Bataan.

VariousSangue Latino 2 – Classic Brazilian Jazz Funk Grooves ... CD
Club Brasil (UK), 2003. Used ... $12.99
A great idea for a compilation – older Brazilian grooves re-done by a collective of younger artists! The choice of tunes is impeccable – and tracks include tunes first made famous by the likes of Marcos Valle, Lo Borges, Joyce, Kitty Winter, Sergio Mendes, and others – all performed by a core group of musicians who work the grooves with loads of jazzy touches! Instrumentation includes keyboards, flute, and guitar – and all tracks have vocals from a rotating array of singers that include Ive Mendes, Lisa Brown, and Victoria Newton. The whole thing's great – as wonderful (perhaps more so) as any recent projects of this nature from Far Out or Mr Bongo – with titles that include "Mentira", "O Trem Azul", "Tarde Em Itapoan", "The Real Thing", "Brazil Night", "Feminina", and "Three Angels".

✨✧ DeodatoFirst Cuckoo ... LP
MCA, 1975. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Key proof that Deodato kept on making great records after leaving CTI Records – and in a way, the kind of set that allowed him a bit more freedom to grow than some of his contemporaries! The vibe here is a bit tighter than before, but in a way that makes many numbers even funkier – played by small combos on all tunes, with players that include Hubert Laws, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, and other early 70s fusion heavyweights – all jamming with Deodato's great work on electric piano and clavinet! There's a great variety of material here, but as usual with Deodato, even familiar tunes get really transformed – in this case into soulful fusion numbers with a sound that we never would have expected! Titles include "Caravan", "Funk Yourself", "Crabwalk", "First Cuckoo", and versions of Marcos Valle's "Adam's Hotel" and Led Zep's "Black Dog"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Love Affair 5 ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another stellar set of Brazilian grooves from Far Out Records! Brazilian Love Affair 5 loving compiles tunes from recent years that are schooled in and modeled after the rich history Brazilian music of the last 30 or more years, but with the pronounced modernist vibe that defines the pioneering record label's catalog. It features legendary figures like Joyce, Marcos Valle, Azymuth and others grooving along with younger, more dancefloor oriented folks like Viper Squad and Mamond. Many of the tracks have never been previously released, or serve as a teaser for future Far Out releases. 13 tracks including "O Sonho" by Democustico, "Paz" by Troubleman featuring Nina Miranda, "Te Querendo" by Azymuth, "Chuva" by Vertente, "Agua De Coco" by Marcos Valle, "Galope" by Joyce & Banda Maluca featuring Bugge Wesseltoft, "Ida E Volta" by Grupo Batuque and much more!

RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosCarlos, Erasmo – Erasmo Carlos (1971) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! 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".

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosErasmo Carlos & Os Tremendoes ... CD
RGE/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set from Erasmo Carlos – a record that has him stepping past the simpler rock modes of his youth, and really embracing some of the great changes going on in Brazilian music at the start of the 70s! These changes aren't just the expected psych modes, but also some of the more lofty, complicated arrangements used by artists like Marcos Valle or Edu Lobo – a mode that comes through beautifully here and sets up Erasmo's vocals with these incredible backings that really make him sound fantastic – a bit funky here, a bit groovy there – and sometimes with this more cerebral sound that none of his listeners would have expected a few records back. Titles include "Estou Dez Anos Atrasado", "Jeep", "Teletema", "Sentado A Beira Do Caminho", "Coqueiro Verde", "A Bronca Da Galinha", "Menina", and "Saudosismo". Great reissue, too – with detailed notes – and song translations in English! CD

✨✧ JoyceJoyce (1968) ... LP
Philips/Alternative Fox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and played on a number of tracks by Dori Caymmi and his group. The style shows many elements of Joyce's later unique style, filtered through a more standard late bossa sound – light and breezy, but with a bit of a dark edge that's in a classic Jobim mode. Includes the track "Superego", which feels a lot like Joyce from the 70s – plus the lovely "Litoral", and the tracks "Me Disseram", "Nao Muda, Nao", "Cantiga De Procura", "Choro Chorado", "Bloco Do Eu Sozinho", and "Improvisado".

A great set that's way way more than the "chill out" promised in the title – a collection of Brazilian groovers pulled from some of the best labels in the business! As with previous volumes in this series, the focus is on work done for the groundbreaking Far Out label – but this time around, they've also thrown in some choice bits from outside sources, including some killer underground bits from Brazil and a few choice classics! Titles include "Without Words" by 4 Hero Presents Nature's Plan with Ed Motta, "Na Batida Do Agogo (Osunlade rmx)" by Grupo Batuque, "Os Oculos Escuros De Cartola" by Max De Castro, "Papa" by Azymuth featuring Sabrina Malheiros, "Preguiciman" by Mamond, "Falso Amour" by Jirzinho Oliveira, "Escape" by Marcos Valle, "Beleza Nao Vai Embora" by Orlandivo, "E O Meu Amor Vi Passar" by Patricia Marx, and "Vera Cruz" by Vox Populi.

✨✧ Gilberto GilLuar – A Gente Precisa Ver O Luar (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweetly soulful work from Gilberto Gil – an album that almost has him in the same sort of R&B-inspired territory as Marcos Valle's early 80s albums! Instrumentation includes a fair bit of keyboards and electric rhythms – all put together quite nicely by Gil, Lincoln Olivetti, and Liminha – with a style that borrows heavily from American soul of the time, yet still keeps enough of Gil's own spirit intact. The album's supposedly dedicated to John Lennon – but given the sound, that's more of a side note than anything else. Titles include "Morena", written with Cassiano, plus "Cores Vivas", "Cara Cara", "Axe Baba", "Palco", "Lente Do Amor", and "Se Eu Quiser Falar Com Deus". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Coracoes A Mil (inst)" and "Marcha Da Tietagem". CD

A fantastic 70s album from this legendary harmony quartet – a female group that first emerged during the bossa generation in 60s Brazil, but who seem to hit an even more sublime sound with this rare gem from 1972! The setting is kind of post-bossa – maybe in the territory that Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries were hitting – as the quartet work with fantastic arrangements from Edu Lobo and Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – in modes that are complicated and sophisticated, yet also straightforward and groovy – a perfect blend for the vocal harmonies! The album features the girls' incredible take on the Milton Nascimento song "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" – and other great tracks include "Quando O Carnaval Chegar", "Inclensa", "Cantoria", "Canto De Oba", and "Zanga Zangada".

An excellent early gem by one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The material is handled extremely well – and the set list includes many early versions of songs by some of Brazil's best writers, like "Cancao Do Sal" by Milton Nascimento, "Sonho De Maria" by Marcos Valle, "Tem Mais Samba" by Chico Buarque, "Lunik 9" and "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Pra Dizer Adeus" by Edu Lobo, and "Boa Palavra" by Caetano Veloso.

Fermata/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful little soundtrack – Brazilian in origin, but with lots of the lush, warm tones we love in 70s Italian erotic scores too! The style is definitely Brazilian, though – and modes run from some of the cooler, larger arrangements you'd hear from Marcos Valle – especially in his early 70s years – to some moments that are a bit more spare, and mix in rootsy percussion, sweet keyboards, and jazzy touches on Fender Rhodes – which makes for a really wonderful blend of styles! The record's one that we'd rank equally next to our favorite Emi/Odeon grooves from the time – and next to some of our sweetest, grooviest European soundtracks of the early 70s – and titles inclkude "Seios", "Despedida", "Espairecendo", "You Can't Run Away From Your Destiny", "Panorama", "Amazonia", and "Quarto De Hotel".

Sweet and jazzy pop from early 70s Brazil – a great little album that we'd rank with our favorites by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo! Arthur Verocai isn't nearly as well-known as those two, but he works in a similar territory – taking jazz, large arrangements, and nice touches of electric funk – and working them into a groove that has the soaring and ambitious feel of the best post-Tropicalia work of 70s Brazil! This rare gem was self-produced, and fell of the map almost as soon as it was released – but it really deserves wider recognition, and shines with a depth that makes it an instant classic to our ears! Titles include "Presente Grego", "Caboclo", "Pelas Sombras", "O Mapa", "Sylvia", "Karina", "Velho Parente", and "Dedicada A Ela". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tim MaiaTim Maia (1971) (with bonus track) ... CD
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever from Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia – and a set that also has him singing a bit of English language lyrics too! The groove here is that classic Maia blend of Brazilian roots with American funk and soul – echoes of forro or samba in some of the rhythms, mixed with psychedelic touches, and some harder-hitting funky lines too – all in a mindblowing blend that's perfectly topped with Maia's vocals – which are every bit as large and powerful as the man on the cover himself! Tim shifts effortlessly between Portuguese lyrics and American English – the latter of which really showcases his love of American soul on the titles"I Don't Know What To Do With Myself", "Broken Heart", and "I Don't Care". The album also features a version of Marcos Valle's "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", plus the cuts "Meu Pais", "A Festa Do Santo Reis", "Nao Vou Ficar", and "Salve Nossa Senhora" – all wonderful, all the way through! CD features the bonus track "Chocolate". CD

Quartin/Far Out (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from the legendary Quartin label – and a set that, like most of the releases from that imprint, has a sound that's years ahead of its time! Piri's a guitarist, and works here with an instrumental combo who support his soaring, scatting vocals – in a mode that's maybe in the same blend of roots, jazz, and larger ideas as the most creative late 60s moments by Quarteto Novo, Marcos Valle, or Edu Lobo – a completely rich reworking of previous musical ideas into a fantastic new tapestry of sound – one that still has an honest, earthy appeal – even while the sound is soaring to the skies! Piri sings, with help from singer Tita – but mostly in a non-verbal way – alongside his own guitar, and flutes from Paulinho Jobim and Danilo Caymmi, piano from Geraldinho Carneiro, bass from Jorge Marinho, and drums from Wilson Das Neves. The whole album's wonderful – and titles include "Reza Brava", "Chao Vermelho", "Espiral", "Lagrimas", "Porta Do Sol", "Voces Querem Mte", and "O Som Do Roberto". LP, Vinyl record album
