K7 (Germany), 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tosca have grown up a bit since we last heard them – getting a bit more subtle, and maybe even more soulful with their sound – maturing into a mellow groove that's a bit more textured than downtempo – peppered with vocals from a shifting array of singers who help further the sound. There's still plenty of the darkness you'd love from the group's previous records, and certainly none of the cheesiness you'd guess from the hat image on the cover – and titles include "Zur Gueten Ambiance", "Stuttgart", "In My Brain Prinz Eugen", "Cavallo", "Bonjour", and "Soda".

✨✧ Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". CD

EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Sublime bossa jazz from one of the greatest combos on the Brazilian scene of the 60s – the crackling trio led by drummer Milton Banana, a really tremendous player no matter what the setting! The album bristles with energy from the very first note – virtually a blueprint for the sound of bossa piano in the 60s, with some great acoustic work here from Walter Wanderley on piano, and basslines that have a quick-spirited sense of timing to match Milton's drums. Tracks are all short and very tight, with a great sense of jazz – leaping along the grooves with titles that include "Samblues", "Noa Noa", "Primavera", "Samba De Verao", "Primitivo", and "Sambou, Sambou".

A standout early album from Luiz Bonfa – one that features larger orchestrations than a number of his other sides, as well as a good blend of vocals in addition to Bonfa's haunting work on guitar. The album's got a full, rich sound – one that takes Bonfa to territory that we'd never expected, showing him to be a much more expressive artist than you'd hear on some of his "guitar with arrangements" sets. Maria Toledo sings on a few numbers as well, and titles include "Melancolia", "Mania De Maria", "Amor Demais", "Menina Flor", "Chorou Chorou", "Fio De Cancao", and "Indiferenca". CD

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

Dick FarneyPenumbra Romance ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1971. Used ... $18.99
A wonderful album from this legendary Brazilian singer – and probably one of his best-ever! Farney began his career as a warm romantic vocalist in earlier pop years, but on this great set, he's emerging as a talented jazz singer, on a level with Leny Andrade or Elis Regina. The instrumentation's only a piano trio, and Farney's work on the keys fits perfectly with his moody vocals on tracks like "Este Seu Olhar", "Marina", "Ponto Final", "Uma Loira", and "Perdido De Amor".

EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
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".

✨✧ Milton NascimentoGeraes ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful stuff – and one of Milton Nascimento's greatest albums of the 70s! The style here is a bit more subdued than on some of his later work – but in a way that's really majestic and soulful, showing the further development of Milton's unique idiom as he becomes one of the cornerstones of 70s MPB. There's a sense of power here that's very subtle, but which is pure Nascimento all the way – a maturing approach to both songwriting and singing that are light years from the music of Brazil a decade before. Filled with great material – and includes the tracks "Caldera" and "Circo Marimbondo", both of which have a nice swinging groove, plus "Viver De Amor", "Carro De Boi", "Fazenda", "Volver A Los 17", and "Minas Geraes".

Joao NogueiraSerie 2 Por 1 (Espelho/Vem Quem Tem) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1975/1977. Used 2CD ... $19.99
2 great records by this overlooked samba genius – an artist who's never gotten that much exposure in the US! Espelho is a set that grabs us right away – light in construction, but packed with plenty of power – thanks to a core batch of instruments that really keep to the samba tradition – setting things out in ways that are arguably more rootsy than most other Brazilian samba of the time! Joao Nogueiro's vocals have a quality that's nicely personal – almost a spoken sort of feel at times – and titles include "Espelho", "Malandro JB", "Espere Oh Nega", "Batucaje", "Desengano", "Wilson Geraldo E Noel", and "Pimenta No Vatapa". Vem Quem Tem is excellent 70s samba from Joao Nogueira – recorded with backings by Geraldo Vespar, in a style that gets at the moodiness of the tunes! The quality of the album's excellent, with nearly all original tunes by Joao, and a style that ranks the album up there with the best of his generation. Titles include "Samba Da Bandola", "Vem Quem Tem Vem Quem Nao Tem", "Chorando Pelos Dedos", "No Na Madeira", "Convenio Com Cupido", and "Amor De Malandro". CD

Pery Ribeiro - Leny Andrade - Bossa 3Gemini V (Mexican pressing) ... LP
Odeon (Mexico), 1965. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A 60s bossa nova classic – a famous live performance that features lots of upbeat vocal groovers! Both Pery Ribeiro and Leny Andrade sing on all tracks, and they're backed up by the Bossa Tres – heard here at their sharp-edged early best, working with extremely creative arrangements from Luiz Carlos Vinhas! The album includes a killer version of "Deus Brasileiro" that's easily one of the best-ever takes on the tune, plus a lot of other material that grooves in the same lively way – with heavy piano, and a nice mix of bossa and 60s MPB styles. Ribeiro's voice is fantastic, and this record is probably one of the best that you'll ever find by him – and other titles include "Nana", "De Manha", "Coisas Do Dia", "So Saudade", and "Por Quem Morreu De Amor".

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".

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

The work's equal parts bossa and samba – with the rougher edges you might expect from Elza's other work of the 60s, and some of the phrasing that might be implied by the title – all making for a winning combination that cooks up the tunes in a style that's hardly matched by other female bossa sets from the time! Tracks include "O Samba Brasileiro", "Boato", "Beija Me", "O Bilhete", "As Polegadas Da Mulata", and "Eu Quero E Sorongar". LP, Vinyl record album

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/El (UK), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful early showcase of the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim – and one of the best late 50s albums from the lovely Sylvia Telles! The album's got a wonderfully gentle feel – one that's a far cry from some of the more emotive female vocal work that had come from Brazil in the 50s – and although the sound isn't fully bossa nova, it's certainly a strong precursor of the genre – arranged by Maestro Gaya with orchestrations that are as floating and dreamy as the lyrics of the tunes! Sylvia's vocals haunt the tunes in a beautifully, echoey way – as strings, vibes, and piano slip in and out to widen up the sound – and titles include"Fotografia", "Janelas Abertas", "De Voce Eu Gosto", "Discussao", "Sem Voce", and "Canta Canta Mais". CD features lots of bonus tracks from Telles, too – 17 more tracks that include "Sucedeu Assim", "Foi A Noite", "Samba Torto", "Eu Preciso De Voce", "Corcovado", "Estrada Do Sol", "Eu Nao Existo Sem Voce", and "Se Fodos Fossem Iguais A Voce".

The whole thing's fantastic – the kind of special magic that instantly set Telles apart from her generation – on titles that include "E Preciso Dizer Adeus", "Caminhos Cruzados", "Estrada Do Sol", "Quero Te Assim", "Magoa", "Suas Maos", "Aula De Matematica", and "Bom Dia Tristeza".

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"!

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!

Production is pretty great too – with a great sense of space between the speakers, and a nicely compressed sound on the vocals. Titles include "Zepelin", "Hoje Ainda E Dia De Rock", "Juriti Butterfly", "Blue Riviera", "Mestre Jonas", "Os Anos 60", and "Primeira Cancao Da Estrada". CD

Far Out (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $7.99 16.99
The return of a legend – and a tremendously groovy little record! Brazilian keyboardist/composer Antonio Adolfo's been making records for years – but easily his greatest albums were those cut at the end of the 60s with his Brazuka group – a cool combination of funky rhythms, electric keyboards, spacious production, and female vocals – all wrapped up with that glorious Blue Brazil sound of the EMI/Odeon label. Here, Adolfo recaptures that sound beautifully – returning to modes he hasn't touched in decades – and getting tremendous treatment from the Far Out label, who really help him hit that classic sound right. The record's an instantly timeless set that rivals all of Antonio's wonderful work from many years back – recorded with Adolfo on keyboards, live jazzy rhythms, a bit of strings, and twin harmony vocals from daughters Carol Saboya and Luisa Saboia – soaring out beautifully with a really groovy sound. The whole thing's wonderful – even better than you might expect – and titles include "Bola Da Vez", "Papo Furado", "Luizao", "Eu E Voce", "Tudo E Brasil", "Domingo Azul", "Tao Iguais", "SOS Amazonas", "Sonho Estelar", and "Dono Do Mundo".

A rare set from the early 70s samba soul years in Brazil – one of the few albums ever cut by Renata Lu, a singer who worked more famously on records by other artists – and an album that really does a great job of mixing rootsier, funkier touches with some of the larger arrangements that Brazilian studios were doing so well at the time! There's a great blend here between Renata's voice and the overall sound of the record – very much in the best Blue Brazil spirit of the Emi/Odeon label during the same period – sophisticated, but wonderfully groovy too – and set to backings done by Dom Salvador and Arnoldo Medeiros. Titles include "Sou Frevo", "Sambaloo", "Manias", "Fim De Papo", "Sucesso Tranquilo"- "Faz Tanto Tempo", and "Folhas De Outono". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Things aren't ever too free or far outside, but always have an edge – and the group is an interesting one, a trio with Odeon Pope on tenor and the great Wayne Dockery on bass – the latter a very overlooked player, and one who can really adapt to a setting like this, forming a key bridge between the others. Some titles are originals, some are standards given a really special spin – and titles include "Out For A Walk", "Lover", "Emoi", "Blues For PC", "Constant Blue", and "Well You Needn't". CD

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

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

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. Titles include "Clara", "Hoje", "Vermelho", "Sem Broquear", "Por Quem Morreu De Amor", and a sublime organ-heavy take on Marcos Valle's "Os Grilos"! CD

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".

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!

The album's got some full backings from Perinho Albuquerque, but the sound is never commercial or slick – just more in the mode of some of Caetano's other 70s contemporaries, particularly some of the groovier artists over at Odeon/EMI! There's sweet keyboards, nice guitar riffs, and other somewhat soulful elements that really bring a warm glow to the best tracks here – and Caetano's vocals, although gentle at times, have a great way of fitting right in with the groove. Titles include "Gente", "Um Indio", "O Leaozinho", "Odara", and "Alguem Cantando". CD

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.

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 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".

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".

Max also steps outside on Historic Concerts – a 2CD set of performances with pianist Cecil Taylor – a meeting that's got to be heard to be believed, as Roach almost outdoes Cecil for non-stop creative energy! Collage features the M'Boom percussion ensemble – a great group that Max was fronting at the time, and which also features percussionists and drummers Freddie Waits, Ray Mantilla, Roy Brooks, Joe Chambers, Warren Smith, and Eddie Allen – a hell of a lineup who creatively mix rhythm and melody. Survivors is a bit more subtle, but quite soulful too – a set that has Max Roach handling a fair bit of percussion, and working with a hip string quartet too! Last up is Bright Moments – 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". CD

Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
