Norma BenguellOoooooh! Norma ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), Mid 60s. Used ... $24.99
A loungey album of vocals from this obscure Brazilian vocalist – and very much what you'd expect from the sexy cover! Norma's an emotive singer, playfully working her way through a number of tracks in Portuguese, plus some American standards from the 50s and 60s – all set to a slightly jazzy backing. Titles include "Ho Ba La La", "That Old Black Magic", "Drume Negrita", "C'est Si Bon", "Sente", and "Sucedeu Assim". CD

EvaEva (1974) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $3.99
Sweet 70s grooving from Brazilian singer Eva – a bit of soul, a bit of easy, all styled together nicely by orchestrations from the magical maestro Gaya! Gaya's work here is similar to his best backings for other artists in the Blue Brazil generation – a mix of American pop, post-bossa instrumentation, and in this case, some very slight electric touches – kind of hipping up the tunes a bit with some nice keyboards! The album's got a really nice version of "Moon River" that skips along at a nice pace – plus some great originals that offer a strong update to the sound of other Brazilian pop/post-bossa singers, like Doris Monteiro or Claudette Soares. Titles include "O Homem Do Tempo", "Vinte Leguas", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Olha Eu Aqui Oh Oh Oh", "Talisma", and Sonho Lindo". CD

Joao Gilberto & OthersO Amor O Sorriso E A Flor (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $7.99
A wonderful album of Joao Gilberto's early bossa tracks from Brazil – loaded up here with various numbers from other great Brazilian stars! The original album is one of the first few that Jobim ever recorded, and it's a masterpiece of understatement, recorded with arrangements by a young Antonio Carlos, and a soaring bossa sound that would soon make history. Tracks include "Discussao", "O Pato", "Outra Vez", "Doralice", and "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Se E Tarde", "Corcovado", "So Em Teus Bracos" and more. This version in El UK fills out the CD with covers of some of these numbers and many more by Sergio Mendes, Sylvia Telles, Walter Wanderly, Silvio Silveira, Carlos Lyra and others. 35 tracks in all!

Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $14.99
Sublime early work by Luiz Gonzaga Jr – a wonderful blend of his rootsy vocals with some of the more complicated arranging styles that were creeping into Brazilian music at the time! The album features Luiz's landmark groover "Moleque" – a lightly dancing tune with a great jazzy finish and some very nice flute – plus loads of other tracks with a similarly heavenly approach, blending soulful vocals, righteous lyrics, and sublime production! Titles include "Insonia", "Sim Quero Ver", "Sempre Em Teu Coracoa", "Comportamento Geral", "A Felicidade Bate A Sua Porta", and "Pagina 13". CD

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

Ivan LinsNos Dias De Hoje ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1978. Used ... $14.99
Excellent work from Ivan Lins' best period! The record captures him at a perfect point – when he was honing his songwriting to an incredibly precise style that would match the best work of Milton Nascimento or Lo Borges, but before he's gotten a bit too slickly produced. This record features a great set of tracks written in collaboration with Vitor Martins, and with backing by Grupo Modo Livre, arranged by Gilson Peranzzetta. If you've ever wondered why people talk about Lins' genius as a songwriter – check out this album, and you'll see what they mean! Titles include "Cantoria", "Quaresma", "Temporal", "Aos Nossos Filhos", and "A Visita". CD

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo (Japanese pressing) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. Used ... $28.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

MaysaCanecao Apresenta Maysa/Maysa (1969) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $18.99
2 nice slices of Brazilian pop from 1969 – back to back albums by the enigmatic Maysa! Both albums are from a time when she cut more than a few great recordings in a variety of mode, from lively bossa to dancing samba to English-influenced groovy pop tunes! Canecao Apresenta Maysa is a live album, and there's loads of great numbers on the set – with titles that include "Dindi", "Light My Fire", "Eu E A Brisa", "Chao De Estrelas", "Meu Mundo Caiu", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Demais", and "Dia Das Rosas". That album is followed up by a self-titled set from the same year – a great little album from Maysa, one that features hipper arrangements than usual, from the hands of Egberto Gismonti, Antonio Adolfo, and Lindolfo Gaya. The sound is sort of bossa-baroque, with that emotive tone that Maysa brought to her vocals, and which established her as a bridge between older Brazilian styles of singing, and some of the flatter ones used during the bossa era. Titles include "Um Dia", "Indi", "Voce Nem Viu", "Tema Triste", "Rosa Branca", "Catavento", and "Eu E O Tempo". CD

Doris Monteiro & MiltinhoDoris Miltinho e Charme ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $11.99
A great late bossa album – one of the EMI/Odeon gems from the lovely Doris Monteiro! Doris has always been one of our favorite late bossa singers, and she's very nicely paired here with Miltinho – in a sometimes duet/sometimes solo style that resembles that used on the Elis Regina/Jair Rodrigues albums of earlier years. The music's pretty darn great, too – and the arrangements have a nice clean, spare sound, with good percussive touches on the uptempo tracks – which ensures that the record's got some great grooves. Most tracks are in "pot pourri" form, and handled with some impeccable vocals from Doris – and titles include "Desse Jeito Nao Tem Jeito", "Voce", "Leve E Tras", "Fotografia", and "Ouca". CD

✨✧ Luiz Arruda PaesBrasil Dia E Noite Vol 3 ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1969. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent set of groovy big band tunes from Brazilian maestro Luiz Arruda Paes! The album's the third in his "day and night" series, and is arguably the best of the bunch – largely because it's from the end of the 60s, and has some really nice touches thrown into the jazzy riffing of the larger group. Also, the choice of tracks is pretty nice too – with plenty of tunes from the hipper late 60s generation of Brazilian songwriters that included Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Jorge Ben. Titles include "Que Maravilha", "Nao Identificado", "Pais Tropical", "Ate Pensei", "Que Pena", and "Atraz Do Trio Eletrico". LP, Vinyl record album

Wilson SimonalSimonal ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $14.99
A great set of soulful Brazilian tunes from Wilson Simonal – one of his first records of the 70s, handled with a very groovy groove! The album takes off from the style of Simonal's classic Alegria Alegria sets for Odeon in the late 60s – pushing the groove a bit more with interesting arrangements, cool recording techniques, and some influences from the growing sound of global soul – all served up with that tight and punchy groove that's always made us love his work! Wilson's vocals are still as wonderfully soulful as ever, and the sound is as groovy as you'd expect from the cover – thanks to hip backings from Cesar Camargo Mariano. Titles include "Nao Tem Solucao", "Moro No Fim Da Rua", "Sistema Nervoso", "Comigo E Assim", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", and "Sem Essa". CD

Odeon/Honey Pie (UK), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic early bossa session from Wilson Simonal! 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".

Som ImaginarioSom Imaginario (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $14.99
An incredible early album by this legendary Brazilian band with a strong late 60s/early 70s progressive flair! While not as countercultural as Os Mutantes or other Tropicalia artists, Som Imaginario shared with them a sense of pure musical inventiveness, and a love of psychedelic flourishes – and they had a lasting impact upon MPB through their backup work for Milton Nascimento on some of his best albums. This rare first album is a killer – and features fantastic organ and piano riffs, heavy guitars, and stunning songwriting, with lots of jazzy touches – all very much in the best mode of the Minas Geras scene that also birthed Nascimento and Lo Borges. Wagner Tiso is on keyboards, but the whole band's great – and the vocals are produced to a very cool effect – and titles include "Hey Man", "Poison", "Nepal", "Pantera", "Super God", and "Morse". CD

Marcos ValleGarra (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

✨✧ Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the record years back, and it's been firmly brought back into the limelight as the classic it truly is! The set's an incredible reworking of Donato's sound – the gentle jazzy phrasing of the bossa years turned towards mellow groovers that feature a heck of a lot of electric piano. The album's got a few classic funky tracks, and some even more wonderful tracks that feature Joao working sparely on Fender Rhodes – accompanying himself on raspy vocals on most of the cuts! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Nana Das Aquas", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Mentiras", "Cala Boca Menino", "Cade Jodel", "Me Deixa", and "Ate Quem Sabe". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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

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

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"!

Donald BaileyBlueprints Of Jazz Vol 3 ... CD
Talking House, 2008. Used ... $6.99
A great return to form for drummer Donald Bailey – a player who's probably best known for his work in the classic Jimmy Smith Trio of the late 50s/early 60s – but who sounds especially amazing here in a recent, righteous recording! Bailey's working with some very tight talent – the mighty Odeon Pope on tenor sax, Charles Tolliver on trumpet, George Burton on piano, and Tyrone Brown on bass – all players with a lot of depth in their music, and a brooding intensity that makes the record burn a lot more fiercely than anything Bailey ever recorded back in the day. The horns are especially nice – and although Tolliver's only on two of the album's nine tracks, Pope more than holds his own on the others – blowing that heady tenor sound that always grabs attention right from the get-go. Titles include "Blues It", "Gone Now", "For All We Know", "USQ/Trilogy", "Blue Gardenia", "Plant Life", and "Variations". CD

An incredible batch of Brazilian grooves – a rare Mexican album cut by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio, featuring early work by Claudio Roditi, Nana Vasconcelos, and Joyce! The sound is a swirling mix of late bossa and the baroque grooves that were coming out of Brazil at the end of the 60s – deeply jazzy, with some nice soulful touches – and very strong use of voices and instruments together in one sweeping sound that's immediately captivating! The whole thing's great – a lost recording that only saw the light of day briefly in the late 70s, and which is finally getting a proper release today. If you've ever dug Eca's work with the Tamba Trio, or any of the vocal work of the Blue Brazil/Odeon generation, you'll really love this one!

Edgar is Edgar Gianullo – who sings and also handles the arrangements – but the album's got equally strong help from the rest of the group – who harmonize along in the background, alongside the lovely Naneco, the female singer who soars out in the lead! The production is great – very much in the best EMI/Odeon mode, with some of the complexity of work by Os Tres Morais or Antonio Adolfo in the same period – and a young Toquinho is even on the record on guitar.

Lindolpho Gaya & Rogerio DupratOs Maestros Premiados ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. Used ... $18.99
An amazing split album – one that features instrumental work by 2 of our favorite arrangers ever! Both Gaya and Rogerio Duprat were key forces in the sound of Brazil at the end of the 60s – Gaya for his soaring, leaping, often-funky arrangements for EMI/Odeon during the Blue Brazil generation – and Duprat for his playfully modern and inventive backings for some of the most important Tropicalia albums of the era! Gaya's presented here on side one of the record – working in a full set of orchestrations that's almost a bit more lush than his regular work, although still grooving with a fair bit of rhythms – a bit different than his Odeon tunes, but still plenty nice. Duprat's side is our favorite, though – and it's a great showcase of the way he was working out modern ideas in more conventional settings before his work with the bigger singers of MPB – as the setting's a bit more standard, but still really wonderful – somewhere between the work of Edu Lobo on large orchestrations, and the harder-grooving moments of Luis Arruda Paes. Gaya tunes include "Carolina", "O Sim Pelo Nao", "Travessia", "Sao Os Do Norte Que Vem", and "Margarida". Duprat tunes include "Alegria Alegria", "Roda Viva", "Gabriela", "Domingo No Parque", "Maria Carnaval E Cinzas", and a wonderful version of "Ponteio". CD

Amado MaitaAmado Maita (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Copacabana/Patua Discos (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $44.99
A pretty fantastic set of soulful 70s work from Brazil – a set that's got lots of deep currents in the orchestrations, which are echoed further by the rich vocals of Amada Maita! The record's got a way of sounding sophisticated and groovy at the same time – and the arrangements often use saxes and flute to create these cool contrasting colors and tones – which makes for a record that shimmers with light one minute, then dives into the dark the next – a bit like some of the hippest EMI/Odeon material of the time, or maybe a bit like some of the fuller records cut by Emilio Santiago later in the 70s. Arrangements are by Antonio Barbosa and Mozar Terra – and titles include "Reflexao", "Nao Me Diga Adeus", "Sabe Voce", "Gestos", "O Monstro Verde Do Mal", "Os Mergulhadores", "Mariana", "Samba De Amigo", and "Piedade".

✨✧ Max RoachPictures In A Frame ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Soulful Max Roach at the end of the 70s – working in the quartet format that he used to forge some of his best work of the decade, with stalwart Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, Odeon Pope on saxes (filling in nicely for Billy Harper!), and Calvin Hill on bass – an extremely soulful lineup that really packs a lot of power on the date! Tracks are shorter than some of Roach's earlier outings of the decade – but that also makes them tighter and more focused, in a good way – not extended side-long jams, but some really sharp lines that almost hearken back to his late 60s work on Atlantic! Titles include "Mail Order", "Japanese Dream", "Reflections", "Mwalimu", "China's Waltz", and "Ode From Black Picture Show". LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz Carlos VinhasO Som Psicodelico de LCV (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of our favorite Brazilian albums of the late 60s – a really mod mix of vocals and instrumentals, samba and jazz, funky bits and soul – all billed as a "psychedelic" take on the music of Luiz Carlos Vinhas! You may know Vinhas as a pianist on other bossa records, but here he's got an even groovier sound – more full-on and soulful, almost in the mode of some of the Dom Salvador work of the period – set to larger arrangements that move, groove, and have a nice late 60s vibe – similar to the best work on the EMI/Odeon label. Titles include an excellent version of Joao Donato's "Amazonas", a cool jazzy take on "Song to my Father", and a bunch of crazy medleys, including one that mixes "Tributo a Martin Luther King" with "Chatanooga Choo-Choo". Other cuts include "Ye Mele", "Zizi Baio", "Tanganica", and "Un Jour Christine". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBrasa 4 ... CD
Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
A cool collection of late 60s rock and pop from Brazil – and a set that stands as a nice contrast to some of the "song festival" albums from the time on Philips and Odeon! Like those sets, this one presents up-and-coming artists working through a variety of material – but rather than showcasing new styles, the modes here are maybe more in the jovem guarda style of the mid 60s – a bit more slavishly tied to American and European styles, although a few of the tunes here are of Brazilian origin too. There's a bit more complexity and sophistication to the music than the chart pop of a few years before – kind of in the way that west coast pop rock acts were letting their hair down a bit by the late 60s – and titles include "Como E Grande O Meu Amor Por Voce" by Os Intrusus, "O Que Ha De Mal Em Mim" by Bitons, "You Only Live Twice" by Os Agitadores, "When Summer Is Gone" by Analfabitles, "Voce Nao Serve Pra Mim" by Amir Francisco, and "Travessia" by Edinho.

✨✧ Max RoachBright Moments ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1987. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Proof that Max Roach was always experimenting with his music – even in the later years! The album's one of a few 80s efforts to feature Roach's Double Quartet – a group that takes his regular four-piece jazz group and augments it with a string quartet – all in a sound that's almost an extension of modes first begun by Roland Kirk in the 60s! The Kirk reference isn't accidental – as the title track here is a great version of Kirk's "Bright Moments" – one that uses the strings to offset the core jazz work of Roach on drums, Odeon Pope on tenor, Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, and Tyrone Brown on electric bass – all in ways that are as creative as they are playful, definitely in a Kirk-styled spirit. Other tunes follow suit – and use the strings to echo Kirk's dream of a black classical music, but also one that's always firmly jazz-based at all times. Titles include "Double Delight", "Hi Fly", "Bright Moments", "Elixir Suite", and "A Tribute To Duke & Mingus". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CatalystTear & A Smile ... LP
Muse, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic record! This beautiful fusion group (featuring Odeon Pope on sax) plays excellent spare hard grooves with an electric feel that's similar to some of the stuff that David Axelrod was laying down at the time. The whole album's a bag of hip hop samples waiting to happen, especially the excellent cut "The Demon", which is done here in two parts that each have their own distinct funky edge. Other tracks include "Prayer Dance", "Suite for Albeniz", "52nd Street Boogie Down", and the great title track. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CeliaCelia (1970) ... LP
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wickedly cool work from this overlooked Brazilian singer – a record that's got a strong sense of soul in the grooves, and a great sense of imagination in the choice of songs! Celia sings early work by Joyce, Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, and others – with these shifting arrangements from the likes of Arthur Verocai, Rogerio Duprant, and Jose Briamonte – all in a mish-mash of modes that sometimes echoes the funky styles on EMI/Odeon of the period, sometimes even hits at Tropicalia touches – especially when guitarist Elody is given full run in the music to do his thing! Titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney", "Fotograma", "Adeus Batucada", "To Be", "David", "Durango Kid", "Zozoio Como E Que E", and "Lennon McCartney". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ O BandoO Bando ... CD
Polydor/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy fuzz from late 60s Brazil – a Tropicalia-era album, but one with a slightly more mainstream groove – one that mixes elements of regional music with psychedelic elements and bouncy, mod-styled backings! The approach is somewhat like the work going on over at EMI/Odeon during the time – although there's certainly a trippier side to the record as well, thanks to arrangements from Rogerio Duprat, Damiano Cozzela, and Julio Medagalia. There's a fair bit of groovers on the record – although in a somewhat offbeat mode – nestled nicely next to a few headier tunes that help balance out the whole set wonderfully. Titles include "Alegria Alegria", "Quem Sabe", "Que Maravilha", "Fossa Boboca", "Longe Do Tempo", "Pela Rua Da Praia", and "Vou Buscar Voce". CD

✨✧ Hareton SalvaniniA Virgem De Saint Tropez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fermata/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... 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".

✨✧ Pedro SantosKrishnanda ... LP
CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally unique album from the Brazilian scene of the 60s – a set that was recorded right in the middle of the big Tropicalia years, but which has more of the earthier touches that would emerge in the Brazilian scene during the 70s! Yet there's also a sense of tight arrangement here too – a bit like the soulful crackle that came from some of the EMI/Odeon sessions, but served up with a more folklyric sense of instrumentation – lots of percussion, cuica, and other regional elements – sometimes topped with a single horn, or maybe just a string flourish – but never in a way that dampens the earthy energy at the core! The sound is fantastic – mostly instrumental, although with some spare vocals too – and titles include "Agua Viva", "Ritual Negro", "Desengano Da Vista", "Dual", "Arabindu", "Quem Sou Eu", "Advertencia", and "Sem Sombra".

✨✧ 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".
