✨✧ Milton BananaMilton Banana (1971) ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1971. Very Good+ ... $59.99
A really cool change from the style of earlier Milton Banana albums – still very much bossa, driven by his amazing work on drums – but also using a bit of keyboards and organ, too – plus some choppy guitar in the rhythms! The sound is nice and lively, and sounds a bit like some of Joao Donato's 70's work – on lively tracks that include "Voce Nao Entende Nada", "Tudo Azul N'America Do Sul", "Eu Nao Queria", "Mas Que Doidice", and "De Noite, Na Cama". Great stuff, and some nice electric grooves! LP, Vinyl record album
(A nice copy – and still in the plastic sleeve!)

Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1966. Used ... $14.99
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

Milton Banana TrioMilton Banana Trio (1965) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1965. Used ... $11.99
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".

Adoniran BarbosaAdoniran Barbosa 1975/Adoniran Barbosa E Convidados ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1975/1980. Used ... $11.99
A double-header – featuring two old albums from Adoniran Barbosa! First up is a self-titled set from 1975 – great vocals from this aging samba star – presented with just a bit of light instrumentation, and some added chorus vocals – but very much a deeply personal set! Adoniran wrote all of the tracks on the album himself – and the record's got a unique feel that separates it from a fair bit of other 70s samba – a quality that comes not just from Barbosa's time worn vocals, but also from the nature of the tunes themselves. Titles include "Malvina", "No Morro Da Casa Verde", "Pafunca", "Samba Do Arnesto", "Conselho De Mulher", "Joga A Chave", and "Samba Italiano". Adoniran Barbosa E Convidados is a set that's filled with work by famous guest stars – a list of singers that includes MPB4, Elis Regina, Clementina De Jesus, Clara Nunes, Djavan, and Roberto Ribeiro – all of whom join Barbosa in a way that still stays very true to his original style! Titles include "Tiro Do Alvaro", "Bom Dia Tristeza", "Vila Esperanca", "Iracema", "No Morro Do Piolho", "Torresmo A Milanesa", "Fica Mais Um Pouco Amor", and "Aguenta A Mao Joao". CD

Eumir DeodatoIdeias ... CD
Odeon/EMI (UK), 1964. Used ... $11.99 16.99
Early bossa magic from Deodato – cut years before his electric fusion albums in the 70s! This little gem shows Deodato to be quite the arranger – working in a small combo mode that mixes percussion, guitars, and horns with his own sweet piano and organ licks – grooving in a gentler, sparer sort of way than on his albums with the Os Catedraticos ensemble – and going for a really warm and wonderful sound! The album's got a feel that's different than a lot of other bossa albums from the time – at one level, a bit more sophisticated on the rhythms, but at another level, done with a style that's cleaner and more down to earth than the larger backings on other Brazilian sides. Tracks include "Samblues", "Nuvens", "Encanto Triste", "So Tinha De Ser Come Voce", and "Deus Brasileiro". CD

Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 39.99
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

EvaEva (1974) ... 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

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 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".

Nils LindbergTrisection ... LP
Odeon (Sweden), 1963. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A brilliant bit of modern jazz from Sweden – surprisingly issued by Capitol in the US, during a period when they were picking up overseas sides from players like Martial Solal and Joe Harriott. Lindberg plays piano, and leads a large group that includes Eje Thelin on trombone, Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Bertil Lofdahl on tenor, and Rolf Billberg on alto. The approach of the tunes is almost in a birth of the cool kind of mode – but more freewheeling, like some of the early Saba sides of this nature, with plenty of room for breakout solos that really unfold in the course of the album's long tracks. Titles include "Joker", "Day Dreaming", "Valse", "Preludium", and the extended "Trisection" suite. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milton NascimentoClube Da Esquina 2 ... LP
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the previous set are in place here – including the sublime Lo Borges on vocals, Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on bass and guitar – but the set also features contributions from other Brazilian talents – including Chico Buarque on vocals, Ed Maciel on trombone, Paulo Jobim on guitar, and even Azimuth on a bit of grooves! As with the first set, the mix of modes is amazing – all the rich, soulful qualities of Milton Nascimento's best early work – but delivered in a magnificently collaborative mode that never wastes a minute of the extended double-length space of the album. As before, songs are penned by most of the collaborators – and titles include "E Dai", "Pao E Agua", "Canoa Canoa", "Credo", "Nascente", "Meu Menino", "Que Bom Amigo", and "Dona Olimpia".

PixinguinhaSom Pixinguinha ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1971. Used ... $14.99
A great later album from Pixinquinha – a set recorded in the early 70s, but just as essential to his catalog as any titles from the classic years! The style here is great – with arrangements from Lyrio Panicali that still preserve some sense of tradition, yet also update the sound somewhat – never too much, but in ways that take good advantage of the better sound available for the session. Instrumentation includes a bit of organ, used very slightly amidst flute, percussion, and guitar – and a few tracks also feature some slightly fuller instrumentation, but never too much. The record features work by Geraldo Vespar and Orlando Silveira – and tracks include "1 X 0", "O Gato E O Canario", "Samba Funebre", "Urubatan", "Carinhoso", "Pula Sapo", and "Samba Do Urubu". CD

Silva's voice is great – with a warm rich soulful sound that's similar to that of some of the samba revivalists of the 70s – and the backing is loud, hard, and echoey, in that great EMI/Odeon production style from the old days.

Marcos ValleViola Enluarada ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1968. Used ... $11.99 16.99
Fantastic! This lost late-60s album by Marcos Valle is a real treasure, and it offers a musical bridge between his earlier bossa nova material, and his later, more experimental work! The production is beautifully baroque, with a feel that's similar to some of the early albums by Milton Nascimento – a spacious sound with hints of jazz, and a very ambitious undercurrent – very much in tune with the generation of late 60s Brazilian artists who were trying hard to find a whole new space of expression! Nascimento actually makes a guest vocal appearance on 2 of the album's tracks – "Viola Enluarada" and "Requiem" – both of which were arranged by Dori Caymmi. Other arrangements were handled by Oscar Castro Neves and Eumir Deodato, and titles include "Viagem", "Proton Eletron Neutron", "O Amor E Chama", "Terra De Ninguem", and "Maria De Favela". CD

Some very tasty samba numbers – cut with the small combo of Walter Wanderley, for a very intimate feel that's different than some of the full-on samba sessions cut by other Brazilian singers at the time! The band's got a great little groove – a light mix of guitar, percussion, and Wanderley's sweet work on the Hammond – recorded wonderfully here next to some vamping guitar that really helps lay out the rhythms of the tunes! Isaura's vocals are great, too – a bit emotive, but never too much so to keep the light and lively pace of the combo – and the album's filled with nice tunes that include "Chorou Chorou", "Velho Gaga", "Nao Sabemos", "Ze Do Contra", "Noite Por Dia", and "Palhacada".

Odeon/Think (Japan), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing moment from the Brazilian music scene of the 70s – an album that's both extremely personal for each of the artists involved, yet also a wonderful collaboration between a host of up-and-coming talents! There's a relaxed, intimate feel to the whole thing that's mighty nice – almost an echo of the album's back cover photo, which shows the four key players posed inside a tiny water closet – and the overall approach is quite similar to the best Milton Nascimento/Minas Geraes work of the time – no surprise, as there's a fair bit of ties here to that scene too! Each of the four artists gets to sing lead at some point – stepping out on songs that are their own, yet which are also unified in sound, given shared musicians and spirit, too. Guests include Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, Wagner Tiso, Tenorio Jr, and Nana Caymmi – who each leave their musical mark – and titles include "Caso Voce Queira Saber", "Belo Horror", "Manuel O Audaz", "Viva Eu", "Ponta Negra", and "Luiza".

Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Milton Nascimento – not only a set that really marked his growth as a singer, songwriter, and overall musical visionary – but also a record that really showcased the collaborative spirit that would be a part of his music for years to come! The album features Milton with his "corner club" – an elite group of musicians and songwriters from the early days of his career – including greats like Lo Borges and Wagner Tiso – who'd already contributed to his music, but really get a chance to stand in the spotlight here. Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", which begins the album – and which is still one of the best Nascimento cuts all these many years later! The sound of the record is impossible to describe adequately – but it's got a fantastically soulful vibe, soaring and joyous, and really expanded through the participation of the other rich talents. The vocals are mixed perfectly, and the songwriting's brilliant all the way through – and titles include "San Vincete", "Lila", "Paisagem Da Janela", "Cravo E Canela", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "Os Povos", "Nada Sera Como Antes", "Um Gosto De Sol", and "O Trem Azul".

A wonderful ep from Wilson Simonal – filled with 4 groovy and soulful songs!

Elza always seems to do best in settings that have a more unique sort of hybrid – the less-traditional modes that EMI/Odeon was using to really transform Brazilian music during this generation! The record's subtitle refers to "a bossa negra de Elza Soares", and the groove's definitely the main force that makes the record so strong – as you'll hear on titles that include "Era Bom", "Teleco-Teco No 2", "Cartao De Visita", "Sal E Pimenta", "Dedo Duro", and "Samba Em Copa".

A pretty heady solo set from Zulu – once a member of famous Peruvian rock groups Traffic Sound and Los Shains – now working here on his own, in this wonderfully rich style that takes full advantage of all the great changes that had taken place on the scene in just a few short years! There's a fullness to the record that's wonderful – arrangements handled by Zulu (aka Miguel Angel Ruiz Orbegoso), which sometimes even have the groovier qualities of some of the Brazilian work on Odeon records at the start of the 70s – psych, funk, and other styles coming into play with larger backings – making for a style that kicks off with some surprising grooves, and which also features some really trippy elements in the music at times! The style of the record is beyond any simple genre designation – and titles include "Carino Grande", "Laberintos", "Como Lirios En El Campo", "Tus Palabras", "Sueno De Amor", and "Sana Camaleon". Also includes the bonus track "Haces Mal Pobre Chico". LP, Vinyl record album

Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Pure magic from the young Egberto Gismonti – a sublime early record for Odeon in Brazil, and worlds different from his later fame on ECM! The album's got a great sense of depth – tunes that begin with Gismonti's personal vocals and guitar, but which quickly move into offbeat arrangements that are as inventive as they are ambitious! The vibe is very similar to his classic album from 1973 – Arvore – and is colored with the sort of soul and vibrant energy that you'd also hear in Milton Nascimento's best work of the time – and that of the whole Minas Gerais gernation. Gismonti plays a fair bit of piano – even some Fender Rhodes, which is great – and Lindolfo Gaya helped with arrangements, which gives the whole thing that sweeping, majestic feel of the best EMI/Odeon sides from this time in Brazil. Titles include "Janela De Ouro", "Vila Rica 1720", "Eterna", "Ano Zero", "Prum Samba", "Aqua & Vinho", "Mule Rendeira", and "Volante". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milton NascimentoGeraes ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Capitol, Early 60s. Good ... $7.99
A classic early set of tracks by the Brazilian guitar genius Luiz Bonfa, filled with the lightness and breeziness that made his playing a huge inspiration for the Bossa Nova movement. Originally recorded in Rio by the Odeon label, with some orchestrations behind him, but they're mostly spare and fragile, and they let Bonfa's dark moody guitar come to the forefront. Titles include "Batucada", "Xango", "Mambolero", "Cancao De Outono", and "Sambolero". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erlon ChavesProcura-Se Uma Virgem ... CD
CID/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Soaring vocals from the lovely Claudia – heard here in an early session with really inventive arrangements from Francisco Moraes, and tight jazzy backings from the Luiz Loy Quintet! The style isn't as typically bossa as you might think – and Claudia shifts easily between older modes familiar on the RGE label and some of the more fluid, more exploratory styles that would be used more strongly in years to come over at the Odeon imprint. Claudia's vocals have a bit of a trill – somewhat more emotive than most of her contemporaries on a set like this, but not as much so as on the pre-bossa albums from years back. Titles include "Vento De Maio", "Mensagem", "Tempo De Espera", "Cancao De Nao Cantar", "Chora Ceu", "Acalanto", "Estorinha", and "Ninguem Da O Que Nao Tem". CD

One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from Rosinha De Valenca – a record that still features a fair bit of her lovely work on acoustic guitar, but which also sometimes expands the sound out a bit more – in keeping with some of the best modes on the EMI/Odeon label at the time! More intimate numbers are mixed with fuller tracks that flange out the vocals and slide in some larger backings – in a way that really sounds great, and pushes the talents of Rosinha quite a bit. The record does have one great standout jazzy track – "Vila De Santa Tereza" – very nice and baroque, with almost an Edu Lobo feel at times. Other titles include "Paisagem", "Movimento Da Vida", "Os Grilos Sao Astros", "Cabocla Jurema Xango", "Usina De Prata", "Pedacinho Do Ceu", and "Chua Chua". LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz EcaSerie Bis Bossa Nova ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1960s. Used 2CDs ... $19.99
Rare early work from the leader of the Tamba Trio – pianist Luiz Eca, one of Brazil's greatest arrangers! The 2CD set brings together 28 tracks from Luiz' years at the Odeon and Copacabana record labels – material recorded away from the Tamba Trio, in a host of dreamy styles that includes 60s bossa and easy instrumental, and which is always handled with the dark genius that's made Eca far far more than just a simple pop arranger. Most tunes have Eca's piano out front in the mix, but there's also a complicated set of arrangements that drapes the tunes in instrumental trappings that shift breezily with each tune, ever shifting to amaze and delight! Titles include "Cais", "Stella By Starlight", "Out Of Nowhere", "Adios", "Construcao", "Nao Faz Assim", "Melancolia", "Na Madrugada", "Viola Enluarda", "Nao Tenho Lagrimas", "Chovendo Na Roseira", "Nova Ilusao", and "Eu Preciso De Voce".

Hugo & Osvaldo FattorusoLa Bossa Nova De Hugo Y Osvaldo ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 32.99
A brilliant bit of offbeat bossa from brothers Hugo and Osvaldo Fattoruso – the Uruguayan pair who later recorded in the US as fusion combo Opa, but who are heard here in a rare 1968 outing for Odeon in their homeland! The style here is far from the usual Brazilian bossa set of the 60s – as the brothers have clearly absorbed some trippier influences, and are using them gently, but effectively in the way they put together the electric guitar and percussion in the set – and in the way they often bring their voices together, in a mode that resonates a bit with the harmony vocal sound of Sunshine Pop years! This work even predates the pre-Opa compilation on Vampi Soul – and the CD packages the original 12 track album with 8 more bonus tracks, some of which are by the Fattoruso's beat group Los Shakers! Titles include "Ojos Oscuros", "Este Muchacho Esta Enamorado De Ti", "Hechizo", "Nunca Nunca", "El Pino Y La Rosa", "Amaneciendo", "Poema De Las Cinco Rosas", "Chicalanga", "Un Humore Y Una Mujer", "Siempre Tu", "Candombe", and "Estoy Esperando".

This completely essential set compiles most of Joao Gilberto's early recordings for the EMI/Odeon label in Brazil – remarkably influential tracks recorded from the years 1958 to 1961, featuring a young Joao on guitar and vocals, warmly carving out the bossa nova sound that would go on to influence generations of musicians, and which still remains some of his greatest recorded work ever! 38 tracks in all – with titles that include "Chega De Saudade", "O Pato", "E Luxo So", "Brigas Nunca Mais", "Saudade Fez Um Samba", "Trenzinho", "Este Seu Olhar", "Lobo Bobo", "O Barquinho", "Trevo De 4 Folhas", and "Aos Pes Da Cruz".

There's many different strains at work here – from pure samba and folksy vocal work, to tracks that are touched with some of the jazzier influences of the generation that include Edu Lobo and Milton Nascimento. Titles include "Dias De Santos E Silvas", "E Vamos A Luta", "Ponto Do Interrogacao", "Recado", "O Que Importa?", "Comportamento Geral", and "O Que E, O Que E". CD

Arrangements are large and wonderful – put together by Harold with a mix of raw percussion, riffing guitars, sweet keyboards, and soring horns – all as groovy as groovy can be, and topped with vocals that are a mix of soulful styles and freer modes – backed by lovely female singers at some key moments too!

A fantastic introduction to one of our favorite Brazilian artists of all time – the lovely Joyce – a hell of a singer, songwriter, and guitar player – and an artist who almost works with a jazzy vibe to her music too! It's impossible to describe the genius of Joyce in just a few words – as she's got this special blend of her voice and acoustic guitar, moving between lyrics and wordless vocal inflections – in ways that sound completely sublime, whether in a spare setting or with larger backings – both of which you'll hear in this set. The package is heavy on cuts from her landmark recordings for EMI/Odeon – and titles include "Joya", "Historia Do Samba", "Caqui", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Passarinho", "Feminina", "Fa Da Bahia", "Baracumbara", "Docura Forte/Agua E Luz", "Banana", and "Clareana".

A sweet instrumental set from Paul Mauriat! El Condor Pasa is a warm batch of grooves from the early 70s – a record that's still very much in the best French-styled easy sound that made Mauriat huge on American charts for a bit a few years before! As with his previous records, this one has a style that's as soft as familiar instrumental modes, yet also a bit hipper too – kind of a touch of French sex in the mix – buried nicely in the background, amidst warm strings, bits of keyboards, and some nice electric bass – and some occasional breakout moments that almost get a bit funky, kind of in a Brazilian EMI/Odeon early 70s way. Titles include a great version of the Stelvio Cipriani tune "To Be The One You Love" – plus "Melancholy Man", "Black Harlem", "Tonta Gafa Y Boba", "Burning Bridges", "Lonely Days", and "Love Story".

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!

There's a style here that brings us back to the arrangements that Marcos used heavily on his Odeon work of the late 60s and early 70s (including his work with Joao Donato) – a mode that took inspiration from bossa, borrowed a bit more from American and European styles, and created a sound that was complicated, sophisticated, yet never failed to groove! The overall approach is a bit more modern here than on those albums, but there's a sense of gentle warmth and playfulness that we totally love – as Valle works with an octet that includes trombone, saxes, trumpet, and plenty of percussion – all warmly arranged with a surprising degree of soul. Valle's nicely departing from some of his recent albums for Far Out – offering us a whole new side of his talents, and one that could easily play well for fans of American electric jazz as well.

Soul Note (Italy), 1985. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Max Roach's Double Quartet of the mid 80s – a group that wasn't just an octet, but an expansion of Max's regular four piece group with the addition of a string quartet! The core jazz sound of Odeon Pope's tenor, Tyrone Brown's electric bass, and Cecil Bridgewater's trumpet is expanded by a string group that includes Maxine Roach on viola – and that family relation is probably one reason that made experimentation like this easy for Max! The approach is a surprisingly great one – as the quartet seems to hold the Roach group a bit more inside than before – letting Pope and Bridgewater stretch out on their solos, but not get as sloppy as they had in some of the more outside Roach quartet outings. And the strings color in things really nicely in classic "with strings" jazz mode – but one that echoes more with 70s soul jazz use of such styles than earlier approaches. Titles include "A Little Booker", "Easy Winners", "Sis", and "Birds Says". LP, Vinyl record album

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 include "Seios", "Despedida", "Espairecendo", "You Can't Run Away From Your Destiny", "Panorama", "Amazonia", and "Quarto De Hotel".

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".

The set takes off in a large ensemble vein of Brazilian grooves from a few years before – kind of more of a kick to the Blue Brazil/Odeon generation, as Branco works with a large string and horn section, but also ensures lots of tightness in the rhythms, and sweet electric touches on keyboards. There's a bit of Brazilian percussion at times – which let you know you're not in familiar CTI territory – and as with so many other great Brazilian albums of the time, the production is superb – really different than on American records of this nature.

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

✨✧ Max RoachPictures In A Frame ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has some small marks from sticker removal.)

Harry PartchWorld Of Harry Partch ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Classic Harry Partch, and the kind of record that's a great introduction to his music. There's lots of Partch's weird invented instruments – like chromelodeon, diamond marimba, mazda marimba, cloud-chamber bowls, gourd tree, and the crazy "spoils of war". The titles are long, and include "Castor & Pollux", "Daphne Of the Dunes", and "Barstow", which is "eight hitchiker inscriptions from a railway railing at Barstow, CA". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram reissue, including the printed inner sleeve.)

Alan SondheimT'Other Little Tune ... CD
ESP/ZYX (Germany), 1968. Used ... $14.99
Alan Sondheim's second album for ESP – even more obscure and offbeat than the first! Lots of electronics here – including some nice moog – plus prepared piano, Hawaiian guitar, marimba, melodeon, tabla, and other unusual instrumentation! CD
(Out of print, German pressing.)
