Paulinho Da ViolaNervos De Aco ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1973. Very Good ... $19.99
Strong 70s work from Paulinho Da Viola – modern samba recorded in a way that manages to come off with some really edgey touches! It's a bit hard to explain without a good listen, but the album's got a dark sadness that surfaces even in some of the more lively moments, almost in keeping with the melancholic image of Paulinho on the front cover. Titles include "Nervos De Aco", "Comprimido", "Sentimentos", "Nega Luzia", "Cidade Submersa", and "Choro Negro". LP, Vinyl record album

Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
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
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 & Antonio Carlos JobimGilberto & Jobim ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty heavily into the Brazilian Odeon catalog of tunes to cash in on the American popularity of bossa nova. This album was one of their bigger imports, and it features material originally recorded in Brazil, with Gilberto up front, backed by arrangements by Jobim. This is the classic material that made Gilberto's fame in the early days – and titles include "Doralice", "O Pato", "Discussao", "Outra Vez", and "Corcovado". 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".

Doris Monteiro & MiltinhoDoris Miltinho e Charme ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

An ambitious mix of rootsy samba and soaring orchestrations – one of the strongest 70s albums by Clara Nunes, and set to arrangements by Francis Hime, Nelsinho, and Maestro Gaya! The record manages to sit on both sides of a sound with tremendous ease – never getting bogged down in its own ambition, yet still pushing Clara forward with a fresh approach. Titles include "Canto Das Tres Racas", "Fuzue", "Risos E Lagrimas", "Ai Quem Me Dera", "Tenha Paciencia", "Retrato Falado", and "Embala Eu". CD

Quarteto Em CyQuarteto Em Cy (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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".

Bola SeteE Aqui Esta O Bola Sete (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Cornbread, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Amazing early stuff from Bola Sete! Most of Sete's recordings were made in the US – for labels like Fantasy or Takoma during the 60s and 70s – but this rare set was recorded in Brazil back when he was still living there, and it features a side of Sete that's totally different than any of his other work on record. The record's a lively batch of guitar-driven samba tracks – and (get this!) Sete's playing electric guitar on most of the record! The sound is amazing, and his virtuosity is perhaps highlighted even more than on the later acoustic records. Arrangements are highly percussive, but Sete's guitar is way up in the mix, jangling away in a firey sound that's almost a mix of his later playing with 50s electric guitar heroes like Billy Mure or Jorge Inmann. Titles include "Copacabana", "Baccara", "Czardas", "Por Um Amor", and "Morena Boca De Ouro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sylvia TellesAmor De Gente Moca – Musicas De Antonio Carlos Jobim (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1959. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Marcos ValleMustang Cor De Sangue (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

Marcos ValleO Compositor E O Cantor (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/Universal (Japan), 1965. Used ... $14.99
Stunning early work by the great Marcos Valle – a dreamy bit of bossa that virtually defines the genre! The album's one of the first to feature Marcos as a singer – a showcase for his work as a "cantor" after his reputation had been building as a composer – and the record does a great job of strongly putting forward Valle's youthful talents! Arrangements are by Deodato – working strongly in his early blend of bossa rhythms and strings – and Marcos himself sings in a wonderfully fragile voice, and also plays acoustic guitar. Titles include many classic compositions by Valle – including "Deus Brasileiro", "Mais Amor", "Vem", "Gente", and "Samba De Verao" – plus the bonus tracks "E Precisio Cantar" and "Batucada Surgiu".

Marcos ValleSamba Demais (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Odeon/Cornbread, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
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". Features the bonus track "Vamos Pranchar". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcos ValleVento Sul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
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

Rootsy samba with some fuller touches – a great early 70s album that has Paulinho Da Viola getting support from Maestro Gaya – all in a style that's warm and full, yet never too commercial! There's some wonderfully intimate moments on the album – times when Paulinho's vocals and acoustic guitar hang out nicely by themselves – but other points have a bit more dynamic feel, and create a nice sense of contrast that really keeps things interesting throughout.

The tunes on the set are a mad mix of heavy funk, deep soul, and larger arrangements – making the whole thing sound like one of the most messed-up soul records you could ever hope to find, sung in a language you might not understand, but which hardly matters considering the groove of the tracks!

Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An insanely wonderful album that will always remain one of the all-time favorites of the Dusty Groove staff! This beautiful batch of tracks by Brazilian singer/songwriter Marcos Valle has him pushing waaaay past his bossa work of the 60s – into a cool 70s mix of electronics and sexy scoring, for a sound that's a mix of Brazilian rhythms with other styles that evoke Italian soundtracks and French pop backing. That description hardly does the record justice, though, because the whole thing's wonderful – and it's got a feeling that's unlike anything else we've ever stocked – every bit as warmly watery as the image of Marcos in a swimming pool on the cover. It's no wonder that the album was one of Valle's last great recordings – because with tracks as good as "Mentira", "Mais Do Que Valsa", "Nao Tem Nada Nao", "Samba Fatal", and "Tiu-Ba-La-Quieba", it's hard to top yourself!

Erasmo CarlosErasmo Carlos 1968 ... LP
Columbia/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. Sealed ... $24.99
A really compelling record from Erasmo Carlos – recorded in that crucial Brazilian music year of 1968! At some level, the record's got the crossover pop modes of Carlos from earlier in his career – but as you might guess from the cover, there's also some occasional deeper ideas going on too – especially on some of the rhythms, which move along in that blend of funky and baroque styles that were coming into play during the best of the EMI/Odeon sessions of the time. Arrangements are by Os Tremendoes on about half the record, and they do a great job – and others are by Laercio De Freitas and Vicente Salivia – all of whom really move Carlos past the simpler sounds of the jovem guarda years. Titles include a nice take on the haunting Tim Maia tune "Nao Quero Nem Saber" – plus "Senhor Aqui Estou", "Mil Bikinis", "Todas As Mulheres Do Mundo", "Baby Baby", "A Proxima Danca", "Para O Diabo Os Conselhos De Voces", and "Vou Chorar Vou Chorar Vou Chorar".

CatalystEddie Green/Al Johnson/Sherman Ferguson/Odean Pope (aka Catalyst) ... LP
Muse, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the hippest funky jazz combos of the 70s – stepping out here in their amazing debut for Cobblestone records! Catalyst had a groove that was unlike most of their contemporaries – a sound that was often jazzier than some of the tighter funk artists on labels like Kudu or Prestige, with some deeply spiritual leanings in the solos – but also a style that was still pretty tight and focused, not as far out as some of the headier groups on the Strata East label. There's loads of great choppy rhythms and tight-edged grooves on the record – thanks to Fender Rhodes from Eddie Green, reeds from Odeon Pop, bass from Al Johnson, and drums and percussion from Sherman Ferguson. Skip Drinkwater produced the session at Sigma Sound, and it's definitely got some of his hallmark appreciation of rhythm in the mix – on titles that include "Ain't It The Truth", "New Found Truths", "East", "Catalyst Is Coming", "Jabali", and "Salaam".

Polydor/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1969. New Copy ... $4.99
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

Os 3 MoraisOs 3 Morais Vol 2 ... CD
Som Maior/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
A killer second album from Os 3 Morais – a record that already shows them expanding out to some of the more unusual, more complicated harmonies that would make their EMI/Odeon albums such classics! Although these guys started out as a simple pop group, this album already has them hitting the complex harmonic territory of contemporaries like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy – with the two male voices criss-crossing with the female voice in a mighty nice way – all set to arrangements from Sidney Morais and Laecio De Freitas, often with a nice mix of jazz and groovy elements! Titles include "Ate 2a Feira", "Um Amor De Brinquedo", "Januaria", "Travessia", "Carolina", "Margarida", "Com Acucar Com Afeto", and "Motivos". CD

✨✧ Max RoachIn The Light ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1983. Used ... $4.99
Max Roach continues the fine line of work with his fresh-voiced quartet of the early 80s – a very hip group that features a young Odeon Pope on tenor, plus Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet and Calvin Hill on bass! The work's similar to Roach's quartet sessions of the late 70s, although perhaps a bit more introspective – not as bouncing and joyous as when Billy Harper was with the group, but still freshly modern, and a good indication that Max continued to grow strongly as a player during the time – never content to just rest on his good name from the old days, and always forging forward into fresh jazz territory. Titles include "In The Light", "Good Bait", "Tricotism", "Henry Street Blues", and "Ruby My Dear". CD

Pedro SantosKrishnanda ... LP
CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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".

Elza SoaresLicao De Vida (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A key set in a great 70s run from Elza Soares – served up with a raspy charm in the vocals, and a nice sort of polish in the arrangements! There's a good balance here between mainstream samba and rootsier modes – Elza holding onto the latter with her heartfelt vocals, and getting a touch of the former in the arrangements – which are handled by Paulo Moura and Ed Lincoln! The record feels a bit like some of the best Odeon work of this nature from a few years before – and titles include "Deus E Viola", "No Na Tristeza", "Pinta E Borda", "Malandro", "Cipriano", "Rainha Dos Sete Mares", and "Samba Minha Raiz". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Quando Vim De Minhas", "Vem Chegando A Madrugda", and "Sei La Mangueira". CD

✨✧ Bwana TrioBwana Trio ... CD
Paradise Masters (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really obscure little bossa trio album – the only set we've ever seen by this combo, and a record that definitely lives up to its exotic title and cover art! The style is traditional bossa trio – piano, bass, and drums – but many of the tunes are served up with unusual flourishes and nice twists in the rhythms that really go past the more familiar groups of the time – an odd combination of elements that changes up nicely from track to track, and which seems to give equal weight to contributions from the piano and drums! Titles inlcude "Pressentimento", "Dreamsville", "Odeon", "La Vem Ela", "Tamborim", "Cute", "Atire A Primeira Pedra", and "Corrida De Jangada". CD

✨✧ Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
Atlantic (France), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Herbie and Joao are listed together in the artist credits together for the record, they don't really play together on the record – as did Joao and Stan Getz on their album together. Instead, they trade off tracks of bossa nova material, recorded with Jobim in Rio – Joao's by EMI/Odeon, Herbie's by Atlantic. The set includes a host of great light breezy bossa stuff – like "Amor Em Paz", "O Barquinho", "Bim Bom", "Bolinha De Papel", and "Deve Ser Amor". Not totally over the top, but a very nice batch of breezy bossa tracks with lots of light flute and guitar lines floating around! CD

✨✧ Rovi (Piero Umiliani)Discomusic (with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wild one from Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the disco promise of the title, but which still has some of the cool playful touches of Umiliani's work in movies too! The record may well be the funkiest that Piero ever cut – and was done for a sound library series, so has a groove that's a bit different than soundtrack material – longer songs with more focus, and instrumental grooves that mix together funky rhythms with larger orchestrations – but always in a style that's slightly offbeat, and quite different from disco material from the US. Titles include "Happy End", "Forcing", "Odeon", "Hobby", "Optimist", "Skypass", "Carousel", and "Discomania". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of entire album!)

✨✧ Marcos ValleEstatica (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Marcos Valle – maybe our favorite-ever of his recent-revival years! The sound here is sublime – a warm blend of funky rhythms, bossa roots, and larger orchestrations – all very much in the spirit of those legendary albums that Valle recorded for EMI/Odeon right at the start of the 70s – soaring, sophisticated, and never without a groove! Valle did all the arrangements for the set, but gets some great help on strings and horns from Jesse Sedoc – whose touches are really a key part of the Odeon-styled sound here – and a number of the tracks feature female vocals duetting with Marcos' lead, in a mode that's just like his classic work with Anamaria! Titles include "Prefixo", "Vamos Sambar", "Novo Acorde", "1995", "Esphera", "Papo De Maluco", and "Baiao Maracatu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brazilian OctopusBrazilian Octopus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fermata/Polysom (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible little record with a sound that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – a set that mixes jazzy inflections on vibes, organ, guitar, percussion, and flute – the last of which is played here by a young Hermeto Pascoal! The set was done after Pascoal's work in Quarteto Novo but before some of his more complicated jazz albums of the 70s – and it's got a style that mixes his own love of playful rhythms and complicated shadings with a lighter, freer approach to the music – one that's almost in line with some of the EMI/Odeon work of the time, but which comes off with a slightly different feel. The drums get quite funky at times, and the mix of instruments reminds us a fair bit of the legendary Aquarians album on Uni from the US – but with an influence that's more bossa-driven, in comparison to the Latin modes of that set. At times, there's a lightly dancing beauty to the record that's almost in soundtrack mode – but tunes are more focused overall, and clearly aware of their own instrumental power. Titles include "Gamboa", "Rhodosando", "Cancao Latina", "Summer Hill", "Pavane", "Chaye", "Gosto De Ser Como Sou", "Casa Forte", and "O Passaro". LP, Vinyl record album

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

CID/Tratore (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost 70s gem from Laercio De Freitas – an artist we don't know at all, but who seems ready to take on the whole samba soul generation with his sound on the set! Laercio sings, plays piano and organ, and also does all the arrangements – with this groovy style that's not unlike the best work on EMI/Odeon at the time – kind of a samba influence in the rhythms, with a bit more contemporary production on some of the other elements – all to make for some tunes that have a mighty groovy sound! There's some especially nice piano parts – almost Dom Salvador soulful – and titles include "Catarina", "De Sentir", "Saudade", "Fogo Pago", "Rastape", and "Chuva Suor E Cerveja" – plus a version of "Mamy Blue", which we never thought we'd like this much! CD also features two more recent bonus tracks – "Laranjeira" and "Bosque Dos Jequitibas". CD

Jemeel MoondocAstral Revelations – Live At Bimhuis ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A recent live performance from underground alto genius Jemeel Moondoc – but, like all of his albums in recent decades, a set that feels much more like a lost 70s classic overall! Tracks are long, spiritual, and beautifully building – with a perfect quartet that features Matthew Shipp on piano, Hilliard Greene on bass, and Newman Taylor Baker on drums – flowing openly, with almost a loft jazz sort of vibe – and that never-ending sense of soulful creativity that always comes from Moondoc's horn with ease. Shipp is wonderful too – very much part of the group, and in that almost-reborn style that's had us falling in love with him all over again in recent years. Titles include "Here Now Gone Now", "Ornette Gone Bye", "Blues For Katie", and "Cosmic Nickelodeon". CD
