Rubens BassiniRitmo Fantastico ... CD
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic rhythms from percussionist Rubens Bassini – a set that has all the raw live energy of a Latin jazz jam session, but which also carries some of the sweet touches of the bossa nova scene in Brazil – a really wonderful mixing of modes that makes the album a gem all the way through! Rubens plays with the fire you'd expect from his image on the cover – bringing a lot more lively percussion to the record than usual for a Brazilian jazz set of the time – while the larger backings shade things in on some sweet colors – with a nice mix of piano, woodwinds, and some especially great vibes! The record's an excellent jammer that takes a bossa nova groove, and infuses it with some heavier Afro-Cuban rhythms – creating a jazzy style stuffed with infectious changes – on titles that include "Coco Seco", "Barquinho", "Cuban Mambo", "Mirage", "Maria Conga", "Mensagem", "Love For Sale", "Quem Quiser", and "Ceu E Mar". Great stuff all around – recorded in Brazil in 1960, and with not a dead track on the album! CD

SandraSamba 35mm ... CD
Pawal/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99
This may be the only album we've ever seen from Sandra – a really well-crafted set from early 60s Brazil – one that mixes samba rhythms and jazzier instrumentation, all in a great accompaniment to the singer's fantastic voice! Sandra's got the depth of some of the female Brazilian vocalists of the pre-bossa years, but never falls into their heavier styles – which means that she keeps up a really great range as the album moves along at a nice little clip – balancing her strong lead with all these great twists and turns in the instrumentation. There's no arranger given credit – but whoever he is, he's one groovy cat – as you'll hear on titles that include "Tao Bom", "Caminhando", "Doi Doi Doi", "Sem Bossa", "Nuvem", "O Maioral", "Luluzinha Bossa Nova", and "Era Bom".
