✨✧ Marcos ValleCinzento ... CD
Deck Disk (Brazil), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99
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". CD

Marcos ValleMarcos Valle (1983) ... LP
Som Livre/Mr Bongo (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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 ValleNova Bossa Nova ... CD
Far Out (UK), 1998. Used ... $7.99
The first album by Marcos Valle after years and years away from the studio – a set that really reintroduced his talents to a whole new generation! The set was recorded for the Far Out label in London – a then-new imprint who were doing a great job to bring back a Brazilian groove that had been lost since the 70s – and Valle was one of a few key artists they had a big hand in reviving! The record's got a great modern bossa nova feel, with a good electric sound, and lots of nice moody grooves on piano and guitar, plus nice vocals by Marcos himself – sounding a bit older than on his 80s soul records, but in a way that really makes the album crackle with charm! Titles include "Novo Visual", "Nordeste", "Bar Ingles", "Bahia Blue", "Cidade Aberto", and a remake of "Vontage De Rever Voce". CD

Marcos ValleSempre ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99 About August 11, 2021
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

EMI (Brazil), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
A whopping great collection of work by the great Marcos Valle – and a wonderfully priced way to dip into his rich career! The package features 28 tunes from Marcos' groundbreaking years at the Odeon label – starting with his early rare bossa sides from the mid 60s, moving into his groovier styles of the late 60s, into the brilliantly baroque pop he cut during the early 70s. Marcos is a genius – one of the most compelling artists we've ever heard, and a talent whose recorded work has kept us going strong over the years. This package includes a number of gems that aren't on some of the other Valle anthologies on the market – and with 2CDs total, it's a heck of a deal at this price! Titles include "Pigmalio 70", "A Resposta", "Moca Flor", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Razao Do Amor", "Vento Sul", "Wanda Vidal", "Samba De Verao 2", "Terra De Ninguem", "No Rumo Do Sul", "Os Ossos Do Baro", "Ilusao A Toa", "Vem", "O Cafona", "Que Bandeira", "Com Mais De 20", and "Cobia".

Marcos ValleTempo Da Gente ... CD
Arca/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021 (delayed)
A great soul album from the legendary Marcos Valle – a Brazilian talent who started out in the 60s bossa years, but who's coming across here after some great modern soul material with Leon Ware in the US! The vibe here is similar to some of the Ware collaborations – tight, smooth, and filled with soul – in a way that focuses the funky currents that Marcos has always had in his music, and gives his wonderful vocals a whole new range for expression. The songwriting's pretty great in most cases – even though the overall sound is a lot more soul-based than Valle's early crazy albums. – and titles include "Ah! Voce Mulher", "Um Tempo Musical", "No Inicio", "Pior Que E", "Ta Tudo Bem", and a remake of "Protons Eletrons Neutrons". Deodato makes a guest appearance, too! CD

Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic setting for the sublime vocals of Marcos Valle – the Brazilian singer who first rose up during the bossa years, soon expanded into mindblowing styles of his own – and has then had a few great revivals over the years! Yet this record may well give Marcos the fresh spin he really needed – while also respecting the soulful, jazzy currents of his early 70s work – set up with the kind of perfect arrangements and production that Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have brought to this Jazz Is Dead series – but which comes out sounding completely different here, thanks to the qualities of Valle's vocals – which maybe sound more rhythmic and jazzy than we've heard in years. Incredible throughout – with titles that include "A Gente Volta Amanha", "Our Train", "Gotta Love Again", "Oi", "Isso E Que Eu Sei", "Quiera Bem", and "Nao Saia Da Praca". CD

Far Out (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Marcos Valle – maybe our favorite-ever of his recent-revival years! The sound here is sublime – a warm blend of funky rhythms, bossa roots, and larger orchestrations – all very much in the spirit of those legendary albums that Valle recorded for EMI/Odeon right at the start of the 70s – soaring, sophisticated, and never without a groove! Valle did all the arrangements for the set, but gets some great help on strings and horns from Jesse Sedoc – whose touches are really a key part of the Odeon-styled sound here – and a number of the tracks feature female vocals duetting with Marcos' lead, in a mode that's just like his classic work with Anamaria! Titles include "Prefixo", "Vamos Sambar", "Novo Acorde", "1995", "Esphera", "Eu Vou", "Papo De Maluco", and "Baiao Maracatu". CD

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

Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD features the bonus track "O Beato". CD

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 ValleVontade De Rever Voce (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Som Livre/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... 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".

Albatroz (Brazil), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
Marcos Valle revisits a host of his older tunes – and re-presents the work in a quirky electronic mode! The album's less a remix album than it is a "remake" one – as Marcos is collaborating here with Marcio Menescal of Bossacucanova, in a groove that's quite similar to the sound of that group! As with some of Bossacucanova's best work, most of the tunes here are older ones either penned by Valle or made famous by him – recorded here with Fender Rhodes and vocals from Marcos, plenty of keyboards and rhythms from Marcio, and additional flutes from Renato Franco and extra vocals from Patricia Alvi. The sound's quite different than most of Valle's other recent recordings – a fair bit more abstract overall – and titles include "A Ra", "Samba De Verao", "Veio Veio Vai Vai", "Nova Bossa Nova", "Os Grilos", "Mentiras", and "O Que Eu Gosto De Voce".

EMI (Japan), 1965/1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
Stunning early work by the great Marcos Valle – a dreamy bit of bossa that virtually defines the genre! The album's one of the first to feature Marcos as a singer – a showcase for his work as a "cantor" after his reputation had been building as a composer – and the record does a great job of strongly putting forward Valle's youthful talents! Arrangements are by Deodato – working strongly in his early blend of bossa rhythms and strings – and Marcos himself sings in a wonderfully fragile voice, and also plays acoustic guitar. Titles include many classic compositions by Valle – including "Deus Brasileiro", "Mais Amor", "Vem", "Gente", and "Samba De Verao". This cool reissue's also got a few extra tracks, including a rare 45 version of "Os Grilos" (better known as "Crickets Sing For Anamaria"), one of Marcos' early classics. The CD's a great package, and it's got 16 tracks in all, with a very sharp look, as is par for the course with most of these Japanese reissues! CD

Mercury/Le Vieux Renard (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

There's a lot of electric keyboards and percussion, but Gal's voice is still out front, singing in a lovely touching manner.

JoyceJoyce (1968) ... LP
Philips/Alternative Fox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

An incredible treasure of Brazilian music – the only album we've ever seen from Jose Mauro, and one of the few records ever issued on the legendary Quartin label! There's a soaring brilliance here that easily matches the best early 70s work from Milton Nascimento and Edu Lobo – with perhaps some of the more complicated styles that Marcos Valle was also bringing to his music at the time too – all wrapped up with just the right mix of full orchestrations, acoustic guitar, and lead vocals from Jose. Production is amazing – possibly one of the best studio efforts ever from Roberto Quartin – and although issued on a tiny label, the record stands head and shoulders with the giants of MPB in the early 70s. Titles include "Obnoxius", "Memoria", "Ponto De Chamada", "Talisma", "Apocalipse", "Ancoradouro", "As Aventuras Sentimentais De Espiroqueta Camargo", and "Tarde De Nupcias". LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible album – especially if you dig the groovier side of Brazil! Os 3 Morais fit nicely in a groove that runs between Som 3, Tamba Trio, Marcos Valle, and Antonio Adolfo & Brazuca – and they have a style that's a mix of the madder baroque arrangements of Valle and Adolfo, with the harmony vocals of Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy, and the slightly funky jazz of Som 3. This album's an impeccable treasure for fans of the Blue Brazil sound – and it's got a stellar reading of "Freio Aerodynamico" that's worth the price of the album alone! The whole thing's great, though, and other tracks include "Odeon", "Desafinado", "Tico Tico No Fuba", "Jequi-Bach", "Azul Da Cor Do Mar", "Se Quiser Valer", and "Sambachiana". CD

Paris Gadjo ClubCafe Du Brasil 2 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2021. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A really wonderful mix of styles – the gypsy swing of the Paris jazz world of the 30s, mixed with older tunes from the world of Brazilian music – all presented here in a blend that works surprisingly well together! The groove often takes most of its rhythm from non-percussion instrumentation – guitar and bass – and the melodies are carried by more work on guitar, plus clarinet and melodica, the last of which sounds especially great here – a really unusual addition to the songs, but one that comes off wonderfully! The set includes tunes by Joao Donato, Marcos Valle, Antonio Carlos Jibm, and others – and titles include "Saudade De Bahia", "Fim De Sonho", "Aquarela Do Brasil", "Triste", "As Rosas Nao Falam", "Sambou Sambou", and "Samba De Verao".

Quartin/Far Out (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
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". CD

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.

His deep soulful voice is in perfect form – and it sounds super next to sweet lilting arrangements by the great Lyrio Panicalli – who uses larger orchestrations to open up that soulful side of Wilson's vocals – the sort that made him a key precursor of the 70s samba soul generation! The whole thing's upbeat and groovy – in a way that really points towards some of Simonal's giant work to come – and titles Include a version of Marcos Valle's "Tudo De Voce", plus the tracks "Telefone", "Lagrima Flor", "Menino Triste", "Samba E Verbo", and "Balanco Zona Sul".

The album's got a nice little groove on most numbers – even the mellower ones – a style that's a bit like the best Blue Brazil work on Odeon at the time – with odd production, bits of psychedelia, and some other mod touches – all of which offset Claudette's vocals wonderfully.

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!

The set's got a heady sound that really lives up to the cover – almost Sunshine Pop or late 60s French pop, mixed with some of the cooler Brazilian styles of the time – a bit of EMI/Odeon elements in the production, which is directed by Nelson Motta – and a mix of songs written by Marcos Valle, Joyce, and Nelson Angelo! There's a gently rolling groove to most of the record – not entirely funk, but not far off either – and titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney Por Mim", "Oh", "Serolav Ou Oh Meu Brasil", "Primavernado", "Trem Noturno", "Loura Ou Morena", "Ondas Medias", "Please Garcon", and "Pigmaleo 70".

Far Out (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
A joyous celebration of the mighty Far Out label – now over a decade old, and still one of the most freshly creative companies around! Far Out is the brainchild of London DJ Joe Davis, who has a great way of bringing together older bossa-styled grooves with a fresher take on the genre. Joe's approach is really unique, and it's one that's neither subject with the overdone bossa-remix cliches that have cluttered the market in recent years, nor the too-sleepy bossa-revival jazz that's always nice to hear, but never that exciting. Far Out really has a tremendous way of putting over a groove – one that lets the artist work at their own pace, but which also seems to push them a bit further than they might otherwise go – a fact that's certainly apparent in the label's ability to revitalize the careers of older artists like Marcos Valle, Joyce, and Azymuth! The 16 track set features 5 previously unreleased tracks, plus some other overlooked treasures for the label – all very nicely packaged at a low low price! Titles include "O Tempo Samba" by Grupo Batuque, "Demoro" by Joyce, "Tanto Tempo (unplugged)" by Vertente, "Space Carnival (Global Communications rmx)" by Azymuth, "Nao Quero Nem Saber" by Sabrina Malheiros, "Agua" by Nina & Chris, "Espada De Prate" by Celia Vaz & APE, "Pez" by Troubleman, and "Valeu (4 Hero rmx)" by Marcos Valle & Joyce.

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".

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".

The album's filled with beautiful original compositions by Lins – including the cuts "Hey Voce", "Minha Historia", "Novamente Nos", and "O Amor e O Meu Pais" – and if you were ever looking for an album to convince you how great Lins is, this might well be the one!

Like those three giants, Mauro's got a way with a tune that's completely his own, and very different than music taking place in the Anglo scene at the time – sophisticated, but never full of itself – personal, but also always reaching for higher ideas too – set up in these sublime arrangements by Roberto Quartin, who recorded the date for his own famous label – with a killer studio group that includes Dom Salvador on organ and piano, Paulo Moura on alto, sax, and Wilson Das Neves on drums. Jose's vocals are fantastic, as is his subtle use of acoustic guitar – and arrangements on the set are by Maestro Gaya, who you might know from a wealth of brilliant work for the EMI/Odeon label in Brazil. The set includes three never-issued tracks – "Rua Dois", "Moenda", and "Variacao Sobre Um Antigo Tem" – plus "A Viagem Das Horas", "O Nino", "Morango Encanto", "O Oitava Morada", "Romanza", and "O Cavaleiro De Antonina".

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".

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

Walter Wanderley opens up wonderfully on both organ and electric harpsichord here – going for a very different sound than on his earlier records, and with plenty of great late 60s CTI touches! The music is as heavenly as you might guess from the title – a dreamy recasting of Brazilian bossa modes with some of the sunnier 60s touches of the A&M scene – all wrapped together with impeccable arrangements both from Deodato and Wanderley himself. The record mixes a bit of strings with a sweet chorus of flutes and just a bit of trumpet – all undercut by some snapping rhythms that include a bit of percussion from Airto, plus occasional chorus vocals sung by Flora Purim and Stella Stevens! The mix of players, modes and sounds here is really wonderful – and makes for a unique album that propels the older 60s bossa sound firmly towards the more sophisticated modes of the 70s – all at a level that Wanderley never hit again in the studio! Titles include great versions of Marcos Valle's "Proton, Electron, Neutron", Egberto Gismonti's "O Sonho (Moondreams)", Luiz Gonzaga's "Asa Branca", and Young-Holt Unlimited's classic "Soulful Strut" – plus "Penha", "L'Amore Dice Ciao", "5:30 Plane", and "Mirror Of Love".

A wonderful compilation of classic bossa tunes – packaged in a lovely way, and selected by Ruy Castro, who (literally) wrote the book on bossa nova! Castro's the author of a great book on bossa nova – the first of its type in English (and incidentally, often for sale at Dusty Groove!) – and here, he's selected 2CDs worth of tracks to fit the mood and spirit of the book, a perfect soundtrack for a sunny summery afternoon on the beach in Rio!

✨✧ Erlon ChavesProcura-Se Uma Virgem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CID/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums we've ever heard from Erlon Chaves – a Brazilian arranger who got his start in the bossa generation, later did some more traditional music – but here explodes with this great fusion of European and Brazilian soundtrack styles! The record's credited to the Orquesta St Moritz – most likely a studio group with a European name, for good pedigree – but there's a huge amount of sounds here that rival some of the best modes coming from the EMI/Odeon label at the start of the 70s – particularly the mix of samba and bossa elements with larger funky arrangements, then given a more sophisticated twist – as you'd find in the music of Marcos Valle! Most of these tunes are instrumental, and there's some really wonderful organ work on a number of the titles – on tracks that include "Procura Se Uma Virgem", "Grilo", "Uma Velha Bossa", "Ba Oba Oba", "Vamos Nos", "O Anjo E O Diabo", and "Tema De Amor". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFar Out Bossa Nova – A Collection Of Far Out's Finest Bossas To Celebrate 50 Years Of Bossa Nova ... CD
Far Out (UK), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer contemporary bossa from the Far Out label – easily one of the hippest Brazilian imprints going, and one of the few who really manage to get a classic sound right! The tracks here are pulled from the wealth of recent recordings on Far Out, and together they really demonstrate the label's strong approach to bossa nova – a short but rich recording legacy that draws on plenty of classic elements, yet also manages to update the music slightly – yet never with any sort of easy tricks or gimmicks! Some of the tracks are by older Brazilian artists, a few others by newcomers to the music – and they all really illustrate the respect and love for its artists that mark the operations of Far Out. Titles include "Berimbau" by Joyce, "Keep An Eye On Love" by Zeep, "Nova Bossa Nova" by Marcos Valle, "Filhos" by Athur Verocai with Ivan Lins, "Rejoycing" by Democustico, "Pro Bonfa" by Celia Vaz, "San Roque" by Os Ipanemas, "Pra Ze" by Azymuth with Roberto Menescal, "Dindi" by Victor Assis Brasil, "Vem Moreno Vem" by Celia Vaz, "Meu Samba Torto" by Clara Moreno, and "It's Too Late" by Sabrina Malheiros.

✨✧ Robson Jorge & Lincoln OlivettiRobson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polysom (Brazil), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great 80s grooves from this cool Brazilian duo – the guitar and vocals of Robson Jorge and a sweet range of keyboards from Lincoln Olivetti – tied together in a style that's got plenty of great electro soul touches! At some level, the album recalls some of the 80s grooves coming from the US soul scene at the time – but the music also has elements that reflect some of the Brazilian funk of groups like Unaio Black or Banda Black Rio, and maybe even some of the styles of Marcos Valle in the early 80s too! There's a depth to the instrumentation that reflects a stronger understanding of jazz than most groups of this nature – and the vocals often take more of a place on the sidelines in favor of the instrumentation. The jazz sound is underscored by work from Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet and Leo Gandelman on baritone sax – and titles include "Eva", "Jorgea Corisco", "No Bom Sentido", "Raton", "Squash", "Ginga", and "Alegrias".

✨✧ WertherWerther ... CD
Stylo/Altercat (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost late bossa gem from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – served up by a singer with an acoustic guitar, but in a way that's a lot more complex than bossa nova records of the 60s! Werther works here in territory that's a bit like Joyce or Edu Lobo at the time – music that uses the core elements of a generation before, but in ways that open up in a range of different moods – sometimes with larger arrangements providing some of the complexity, sometimes with qualities that come from the singer himself – especially when his lead vocals are given some sublime harmony backup. The sense of sound balance and tone is superb – like some of the territory that Marcos Valle or Arthur Verocai were exploring at the time – and titles include "Lenda", "Rei Do Chao", "Terca Feira", "Leilao", "Catavento", "Mudanca", "Ave Maria", and "Dimensao".

✨✧ VariousMinha Doce Namorada (Master Trilhas Series) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little Novela soundtrack from the height of the early years of the genre – one of the best from Som Livre at the time, filled with tracks that are instantly appealing to fans of the Blue Brazil generation! The set's got arrangements by some real greats – Dori Caymmi, Roberto Menescal, and Lyrio Panicali – and it's a blend of groovy post-bossa styles, including more than a few traces of work by Marcos Valle and his crowd. Titles include "Dez Pras Seis" by Nonato Buzar, "Tudo Muito Azul" by Angela & Paulo Valle, "Minha Doce Namorada" by Eduardo Conde, "Vesper" by Jacks Wu, "Garota De Aquarius" by Betinho, "Voce Abusou" by Maria Creuza, "Instantaneo" by Luiz Carlos Sa, and "Tia Miquita" by Marilia Barbosa.
