Luiz BonfaLuiz Bonfa – Composer Of Black Orpheus Plays & Sings Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1962. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the earliest of the classic Verve bossa nova sessions of the 60s – and a wonderful showcase for the talents of guitarist Luiz Bonfa! Most of Bonfa's previous recordings were done in a very spare or solo mode – and this set makes a nice change by adding in some larger orchestrations – yet still handled with great bossa sensitivity by Oscar Castro Neves and Lalo Schifrin – themselves very big up-and-coming talents at the time! The sound is bright and breezy, as you'd expect from Verve at this time – and Bonfa's a lot livelier than usual, and even sings on a number of cuts – with a charming quality that's a bit like Joao Gilberto. Titles include "Bossa Nova Cha Cha", "Sambalamento", "Vem So", "Samba De Duas Notas", "Domingo A Noite", "Quebra Mar", and "Adeus". CD
(Out of print SHMCD pressing. Packaged in a limited edition 5" gatefold cardboard sleeve!)

✨✧ Isao Suzuki TrioBlack Orpheus ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully spare session from the mid 70s – one that features bass and cello from Isao Suzuki – stretching out here in a sound that's totally unique! The trio's a great one – with Donald Bailey on drums and Tsuyoshi Yamamoto on both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes – the latter of which sounds amazing next to Suzuki mellow-stepping lines. If you've heard any of Suzuki's other albums from the period, the style is somewhat similar – quite soulful throughout, but with an easygoing, open feel that's quite different than many American sessions of this nature – and which makes it clear that the bassist is the leader, not the pianist! Titles include a great version of "Manha De Carnaval", plus "Angel Eyes", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Who Can I Turn To", and "Blues". CD
(Part of the Three Blind Mice Supreme Collection!)

Laurindo AlmeidaConcierto De Aranjuez ... LP
Inner City, 1979. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Guitarist Laurindo Almeida returns to a bit of his roots here – but he also shows off a lot of the jazz experience he's picked up along the way! The album features Almeida working solo on acoustic guitar – although possibly overdubbed alongside himself at times – and while the set begins with the serious title composition, things never get too much in the realm of classical guitar – and instead have Almeida skirting many different styles, including a bit of bossa guitar – and working with this uniquely echoey recording style that makes each note resonate with a richly expressive sound! Titles include "Cool Cat Keeps Coat On", "Holiday For Strings", "Songs From Black Orpheus", "The Summer Knows", and "Star Dust". LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A lost groover on Salsoul, with 3 long cuts that all have a solid dancefloor sound! Tracks include the Latin-tinged "El Caravanero", which has a nice organ sound in it; "Orfeu Negro", a disco version of "Black Orpheus"; and the title cut, which runs for 15 minutes on side one.

Richie Cole & Hank CrawfordBossa International ... LP
Milestone, 1987. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Twin alto frenzy from the team of Richie Cole and Hank Crawford – a set that has lots of the sharp edges that you'd expect from Cole's 70s classics on Muse! Not all of the material is bossa – although there are a few nice samba-styled groovers – as other cuts have the boppish inflections that Cole's always been great at, which makes for a nice setting for Crawford to show off some of his own chops as well. Other players include Emily Remler on guitar, Marshall Hawkins on bass, and Victor Jones on drums – and the set's a live one, so most tracks are nice and long. Titles include "Bossa International", "Samba De Orpheus", "Snowfall", "Fantasy Blues", and "Confirmation". LP, Vinyl record album

Vinicius de Moraes with Maria Creuza & Maria BethaVinicius De Moraes En La Fusa Con Maria Creuza, Maria Bethania, & Toquinho ... CD
Ubatuqui (Swaziland), 1970. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
Two rare sessions by Vinicius – back to back on one 2 CD set! CD one features a 1970 recording in Buenos Aires – with Maria Creuza and Toquinho. Creuza was at her best during the early 70s – and working here with the classic bossa team of poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist Toquinho, she really sparkles with a sound that's some of her best singing on record. The trio sing separately or together from track to track – and the set includes a lot of great work that's in the Black Orpheus or Afro Sambas mode. Titles include "Canto De Osshana", "A Felicidade", "Tomara", "Canto De Osshana", "Minha Namorada", "Valsa Da Tunisia", "Lamento No Morro", and a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Irene"! The other CD follows a similar format – with Maria Bethania instead of Creuza – and tracks include "A Tonga Da Mironga Do", "Kabulete", "E De Manha", "Samba Da Rosa", "Testamento", "Apelo", "Viramindo", and "Tarde Em Itapoa".

Sadao Watanabe & Charlie MarianoNabesada & Charlie ... LP
Catalyst, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A rare look at a little-known chapter in the career of Charlie Mariano – recordings made while living in Japan in the late 60s, done in the company of up-and-coming Japanese reedman Sadao Watanabe! The pair seem perfectly matched here – no surprise, given that both players are ones that come from a mainstream background, but who can also bring in earthier, more primal tones to their instruments. And while the tracks in the set are mostly familiar 60s standards and soul jazz tunes, the interplay between the reeds is really tremendous – dipping, turning, and carving out notes with sharp edges and unusual turns that take the record way past the obvious. Many of the tunes have a bossa groove at the base – in keeping with Watanabe's Brazilian-influenced sound of the era – but the presence of Mariano makes the record sound a fair bit different as well! Titles include "One Note Samba", "Work Song", "Goin Home", "On The Trail", "Comin' Home Baby", "Black Orpheus", and "Lord Don't Let Them Drop that Atomic Bomb On Me". A landmark in Japanese jazz – issued here in the US pressing from the late 70s. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mid 70s issue. Cover has ring and edge wear and lightly bent corners.)

✨✧ Jose FelicianoAlive Alive O! ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little live album from Jose Feliciano – recorded in London at the end of the 60s, with a sound that's often more stripped down than his studio work of the time! Jose's on vocals and guitar, backed by only a bit of bass and percussion – so the record's almost got the intimacy of a solo effort, which is quite astounding – given the obvious size of the concert setting! The double-length nature of the record allows Jose to stretch out a bit more than usual – and take on a nice variety of material that really show his growing talents at the time. Titles include "High Heel Sneakers", "Mama Don't Allow It", "La Entrada De Bilboa", "The Comedy Bit", "Malaguena", "No Dogs Allowed", "Day Tripper", "Black Orpheus Medley", "California Dreamin", "Light My Fire", "Day In the Life", and "El Voh".

✨✧ Ramsey Lewis TrioBossa Nova ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most unique albums from Ramsey Lewis' early years at Chess Records – a spare set of bossa groovers that has the Lewis trio with Eldee Young and Redd Holt augmented by added Brazilian percussion and guitar! The sound is spare, sharp, and soulful – and the record's one of the first small combo bossa dates like this in the US – a 1962 effort that even predates most of Verve's better known bossa jazz albums of the 60s, and which matches their groovy energy wonderfully. The record's quite an unusual one for Lewis, and it's further proof that the trio with Young and Holt was an incredibly dynamic outfit! Two tracks on the album – "A Noite Do Meu Bem" and "Cara De Palhacao" – feature vocals, by Carmen Costa and Josef Paulo, respectively – and other tracks are all instrumental, and include "Samba De Orpheus", "O Pato", "Roda Moinho", "Roda Moinho", and "Cancao Para Geralda". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johann JohanssonOrphee ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in shifting settings that either feature the American Contemporary Ensemble's strings, the cello of Hildur Guonadottir, the AIR Lyndhurst String Orchestra, or the shifting Theater Of Voices conducted by Paul Hillier – all musical elements which are sampled and used carefully alongside Johannsson's keyboards and a bit of electronics – with results that seem to take the generation of 4AD and advance it more than a few steps with a new sort of complexity and emotional depth. The blend of the compositional and personal here is wonderful – maybe even more so than in Richter's work – and titles include "A Pile Of Dust", "Flight From The City", "The Radiant City", "Fragment II", "The Burning Mountain", "Good Morning Midnight", and "Orphic Hymn".

✨✧ Don CunninghamSomething For Everyone (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A strange little record – but one with some very groovy moments! The album is a rare relic from the St Louis scene of the early 60s – cut by the combo of Don Cunningham, the house act at that city's Playboy club at the time! Don borrows heavily from the styles of Martin Denny, Bobby Montez, Earl Grant, and Nat King Cole – but he also puts the work together with a jazzier edge than you'd expect, one that makes for more than a few really great moments that have made the album a treasure for groove hounds for years! The album sports a mad reading of "Quiet Village", one that has the band getting really crazy with percussion and birdcalls, hardly "quiet" at all! The real standout, though, is the group's cover of "Tabu" – done with a great percussion break on the intro, and a chugging Latin groove that's sure to burn up any dancefloor! Also great is the album's two Brazilian-tinged numbers – jazzy remakes of "Manha De Carnival" and "Samba De Orpheus" – both of which feature some great percussion! LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisMiles Davis & Horns ... CD
OJC, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Don't let the "horns" in the title put you off – because the record's not a hokey "with horns" record by Miles, but a batch of all-star sessions that has him playing with some really tremendous contemporaries! The set compiles early Miles Davis sides from two different Prestige sessions of the early 50s – material originally issued as 10 inch LPs, but brought together here in a very cool full length package with a cover image by Mad Magazine's Don Martin! Side one features Miles with a sextet that includes Sonny Rollins, Bennie Green, John Lewis, Percy Heath, and Roy Haynes – on the tracks "Morpheus", "Down", "Blue Room", and "Whispering" – all taken in a boppish mode, but with slight modern touches. Side two features the compositions of Al Cohn – "Tasty Pudding", "Floppy", "Willie The Wailer", and "For Adults Only" – played by a septet that features Cohn, Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Kenny Clarke, Leonard Gaskin, and Sonny Truitt – a very nice match to the sound of side one, and a surprisingly unified record overall! CD features 1 bonus track! CD

✨✧ Logic SystemVenus ... LP
EMI/We Want Sounds (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful record from the Japanese electro scene at the start of the 80s – a record that's got some of the catchy synth modes of the period, but which also has a fair bit of other elements going on too! Logic System features keyboards from Hideki Matsutake – best known for his keyboard programming with YMO – and here, his style expands into some wider modes that almost remind us of our favorite French soundtrack styles of the period – slight currents of sentiment, and a richness of expression that goes way past the more familiar simpler forms of the keyboards. There's definitely some catchier tunes too, and the balance is very nice – on a set that's mostly instrumental, save for some occasional vocoded bits. Titles inlcude "Metamorphism", "Equivalent", "Be Yourself", "Prophet", "Morpheus", and "Venus". LP, Vinyl record album
