Moacir SantosChoros & Alegria ... CD
Adventure Music, 2005. Used ... $8.99
The first full album in years from the legendary Moacir Santos – and a beautiful little album that's filled with all the deep feeling and inventive arrangement of his older work! As the title might imply, the set borrows song structure and spirit from the Brazilian choro tradition – reworked here by Santos with his angular approach to rhythm and jazzy approach to instrumentation – so that the tunes slide warmly into one another, moving with a fluid, organic sense that we really like a lot. For the sessions, Santos pulled together a host of jazz and more traditional musicians – blending modes nicely to further enforce the creative spirit of the session, and mostly focusing on the instrumentation, but also occasionally offering a nice vocal as well. Titles are all originals, written over the course of Santos' lifetime – and titles include "Paraiso", "Outra Coisa", "Agora Eu Sei", "Ricaom", "Saudade De Jacques", "Cleonix", "Felipe", "Carroussel", and "Samba Diamante".

Moacir SantosOuro Negro ... CD
Adventure Music, 1960s/1970s/1990s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99 14.99
A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD

✨✧ Moacir SantosCoisas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Forma/Polysom (Brazil), 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A landmark in Brazilian music – the first album ever from arranger Moacir Santos, and a groundbreaking blend of jazz, larger arrangements, and Brazilian rhythms – still as fresh today as it was back in the 60s! The group's a large one – with instrumentation that includes vibes, guitar, saxes, percussion, and trombone – but the music seems to hang magically in air, suspended on light waves of sound and space that encircle the recording with incomparable warmth. Santos' conception is a highly rhythmic one – but the recording differs greatly from other bossa and samba sessions of the time, and comes across as a masterpiece of understatement, thanks to impeccable production from the great Roberto Quartin! Titles include "Coisa No 4", "Coisa No 10", "Coisa No 1", "Coisa No 8", "Coisa No 6", "Coisa No 2", and "Coisa No 7". LP, Vinyl record album
(Note: On side b, there seems to be some very minor distortion at just a few moments in the mastering, but the rest is great – a very minor issue.)

Mario AdnetJobim Jazz ... CD
Adventure Music, 2007. Used ... $8.99
Jazz versions of classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim – all done by a group arranged and directed by guitarist Mario Adnet, and featuring guest work from Joyce, Helio Delmiro, Romero Lumbambo, and others! The sound here is really fresh – not merely just a reworking of Jobim's original ideals, but a recasting of them in lightly arranged modes that often take on the shapes, colors, and textures of work by Moacir Santos – styles that are warm, but often have some sharper edges underneath, thanks to great interplay between the instruments. Bits of horns, guitar, piano, and percussion all come together with a tremendous sense of grace – and titles include "Tema Jazz", "Sue Ann", "Domingo Sincopado", "So Danco Samba", "Paulo Voo Livre", "Polo Pony", and "Bate Boca".

Nara LeaoNara (1964) ... CD
Elenco/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich with feeling, without sounding too overwrought or overemotional – in sharp contrast to the style of Brazilian divas from a few years before. Includes a wonderful version of Santos' "Nana", plus the tracks "Cancao Da Terra", "Consolacao", "Maria Moita", and "Berimbau" – all done in great edgey versions. Beautiful cover, too! CD

Caio MarcioCaio Marcio ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2004. Used ... $7.99
A really beautiful little album from Brazilian guitarist Caio Marcio – a record that features darkly-tinged acoustic guitar work, set amidst rhythmic small group instrumentation with many angular passages – in a mode that almost reminds us of recent orchestrations by Moacir Santos, and has a style that mixes the jazzy with the folkloric. Marcio's guitar work on the set is really great – introspective, but never sleepy, especially given the larger context – and titles include "Choro Com Paco", "Amigo Canaud", "Via Grajau", "Mantra", "Del Mirror", "Ilha De Itacuruca", and "Despedida".

Jose PratesTam Tam Tam ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.99
Heavy rhythms from the Brazilian scene of the 50s – a set of grooves originally used to accompany a touring dance production, but a set of tracks that's gone on to have quite a life of its own! The music here isn't the cool bossa or spare samba you might expect – and instead has this full-on, very heady sort of vibe – almost Afro-Cuban in the way the album was recorded, although lots of the core elements of the music have a distinctly Brazilian feel, and seem to point the way towards more ambitious recordings of the 60s – such as the work of Moacir Santos on the Forma label, or the Afro Sambas of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes! Percussion is very heavy, and nicely earthy – and most tracks feature some chorus vocals buried alongside the rhythms, plus occasional leads from Ivan De Paula – who's got a deep style that really matches the music. Titles include "Imbae Sofa", "Ogum Olojo", "De Luanda", "Tem Brabo No Samba", "Onika", and "Maracatu Da D Santa". LP, Vinyl record album

Horace SilverIn Pursuit Of The 27th Man (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A real watershed album from Horace Silver – a record that has him stepping strongly into the 70s – but with a rich new groove that's different both from his 60s work, and from the heavy politics of his United States series too! The album has Horace picking up a slightly electric sound, changing his groove from 60s soul jazz into more of a 70s modal approach – working here with David Friedman on vibes, Bob Cranshaw on electric bass, and Mickey Roker on drums, plus additional horn work by the Brecker Brothers – a really great combination of musicians that help Silver realize some really unique rhythms, and lots of moments that have a subtle yet righteous sense of soul! The selection of material is fantastic – hipper than usual for Horace – and titles include Weldon Irvine's "Liberated Brother", Moacir Santos' "Kathy", and Horace's own "Strange Vibes", which has some great vibes dancing around Horace's piano! A very nice album, and one of our favorites by Horace! CD

✨✧ Elizete CardosoElizete Interpreta Vinicius ... LP
Copacabana (Brazil), 1963. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful early work from Elizete – an album of compositions by Vinicius De Moraes, supported by arrangements and backings from the great Moacir Santos! The three talents make the album one of the most memorable in Elizete's long career – a lightly dancing set of bossa-inflected numbers, sung with just the right hint of sadness to make the poetry in the tunes come out right. The set's a gem throughout – and titles include "Consolacao", "Menino Travesso", "Sempre A Esperar", "Mulher Carioca", "Triste De Quem", "Se Voce Disser Que Sim", and "Lembrese". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio MendesBeat Of Brazil (aka Voce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada) (blue & yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mario Adnet & Jobim JazzMore Jobim Jazz ... CD
Adventure Music, 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great follow-up to the first Jobim Jazz set from guitarist Mario Adnet – and in many ways, an even better-conceived version of the project! The difference this time around is that Adnet's been working through the concept in a live setting for a few years – and has come up with wonderfully rich arrangements that really push beyond any simple bossa remake sort of vibe – and instead show up the rich, complicated qualities that we've always loved in the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim – especially in the 70s years of his career! Adnet mostly plays acoustic guitar, but other instrumentation is full with horns – usually flutes and saxes that are intertwined beautifully, with a dipping, soaring sort of energy – not unlike some of the best arrangements by Moacir Santos. Titles include "Takatanga", "Mojave", "Boto", "Bonita", "O Homem", "O Barbinha Branca", "Samba De Maria Luiza", and "Deus E O Diablo Na Terra Do Sol". CD

✨✧ Francis HimeChoro Rasgado ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best records in years from Brazilian songwriter Francis Hime! Hime's singing and playing piano on the album – in a set of warm jazzy arrangements, produced with a rich style that brings out all the complexity in Hime's work. The feel here is similar to recent work by Moacir Santos – in that it's got a presentation that's somewhat classic, handled with a style that opens up the songs in surprising and delightful ways. Titles include "Maracana", "Gente Carioca", "Choro Rasgado", "Flor No Lago", "Duas Faces", "Velho Moinho", "Luz Da Manha", and "Soneto A Quatro Maos". CD
