Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of driving samba and other Brazilian grooves! The record was packaged in a weird way – with samba musicians on the front, and pictures of Brazilian factories on the back – and the record itself contains an overview of tracks from a variety of sources, all of which are linked by a lively groove, and a strong emphasis on percussion. Features a great batucada track "Tem Berimbau No Samba", plus "Voy Andar Por Ai" by Neyde Fraga, "Batucada Sergiu" by Walter Wanderley, "Praca Onze" by Paulo Roberto, "Tamanco No Samba" by Alberto Mota, "Felicidade" by Lyra Do Xopoto, "Maracangalha" by Metais No Samba, and a few more batucada tracks.

Brigitte BardotBB 64 (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the grooviest Brigitte Bardot albums ever recorded – a stellar set of tracks with some ultra-chic arrangements from the great Alain Gouraguer! The album swings like the best of Paris pop in the 60s – tight and outta site, with loads of jaunty pop tunes that bring out the best in Brigitte's vocals, and show her to be a great singer when she gets the right material! Tracks include "Ca Pourrait Changer", "Une Histoire De Plage", "Ne Me Laisse Pas L'aimer", "Jamais Trois Sans Quatre", "Maria Ninguem", "Moi Je Joue", "Je Danse Donc Je Suis", "Melanie", "Ciel De Lit" and "C'est Un Jour Comme Un Autre".

Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Sings (aka Brigitte 1963) (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $19.99
Classic 60s work from Brigitte Bardot – the roots of French female pop, with a set of tracks that mix together bits of rock, pop, and lively jazz-based arrangements – all in a unique blend that's totally great, and every bit as wonderful as you might expect! We might go so far as to argue that Brigitte Bardot on record is almost sexier than on the screen – and thanks to backing from the likes of Claude Bolling, Francois Rauber, and Pedro Serrano – the grooves are as great as the lovely lady's vocals! The set includes a great track written by Serge Gainsbourg, and titles include "L'Appareil A Sous", "Invitango", "Les Amis De La Musique", "Pas Davantage", "La Madrague", "El Cuchipe", "Everybody Loves My Baby", and "C'Est Rigolo". CD features bonus tracks "La Belle Et Le Blues", "Lecon De Guitare", and "Tiens C'Est Toi". CD

Jorge BenBen (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenBig Ben (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the most amazing early Jorge Ben LPs, recorded at the end of the 60s, when Jorge was singing with a stone-cold soul sound. The sharp, tight arrangements by Rogerio Duprat & Jose Briamonte made tracks like "Pais Tropical", "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", and "Que Pena" immediate classics – while the percussion and rhythms of Trio Mocoto provide a good part of the unique backdrop. The album is a mix of funky samba, soaring Brazilian soul, and sweeping orchestrations that give the whole thing a jazzy finish – and it's some of the best work that Jorge Ben ever recorded! Other tracks include "Criola", Cade Tereza", "Domingas", "Barbarella", "Quem Foi Que Roubou A Sopeira" and more. CD

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

Archetypal heavy rock from Blue Cheer – one of THE underground classics of the late 60s! Guitars are firmly, very jammingly in force – and the set's produced to perfection by the legendary Abe "Voco" Kesh. Powerful, fuzzed out, blues based fire at it's most forceful and exhilarating – ultimately setting the bar too high for the group, or altered versions of it, to ever again approach! Titles include their great cover of "Summertime Blues", plus "Doctor Please", "Out Of Focus", "Parchment Farm", "Second Time Around", and "All Night Long". LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz BonfaBrazilian Scene ... CD
Philips/Verve (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little session from Luiz Bonfa – one that features a hip core combo mixed with slightly larger backings – all in a groove that really stands out from other mainstream bossa albums of the 60s! Bonfa's acoustic guitar is set up here with Jerome Richardson on flute, Don Payne on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sound that's lightly touched with occasional bits of strings or woodwinds from Hal Mooney – never too much to over-sweeten the music, and often in ways that underscore the bluer, sadder tones in the music. Bonfa contributed to me great original tunes to the record that really stand out – numbers that include "Avocado", "Moonlight In Rio", "Embolada", "Her Face", "Dream Girl", "Sambalero", and "Zomba" – all of which make the record stand out from other familiar bossa tunes of the time.

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, and adds in some of the more complicated approaches to arrangement that were being developed in Brazil at the end of the 60s – in a way that pushes Chico's work to the next level, and which makes this record sit right up there with work at the time by Jobim or Edu Lobo. Titles include "Samba De Orly", "Valsinha", "Acalanto", "Deus Ilhe Pague", and "Construcao". Really beautiful – with a lot of soul, and a great sound! LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Buarque & Maria BethaniaChico e Maria Ao Vivo ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic illustration of the live music tradition on Brazil – one that really arose on records during the 60s, and blossomed strongly on 70s records like this – which feel almost more like an event than a recorded document! The concert features a magnificent meeting of Chico Buarque and Maria Bethania – both very strong talents on their own, balanced in this really great way amidst larger backings from Maestro Gaya – duetting on tunes that really turn into something special from their performance – never a challenge of egos, but instead a wonderful folding of strong ideals. Terra Trio provide the rhythms – and most numbers are Buarque originals – with titles that include "Flor Da Idade", "Vai Levando", "Bem Querer", "Noite Dos Mascarados", "Tanto Mar", "Gota D'Agua", "Com Acucar E Com Afeto", and "Sem Fantasia".

The cover has a mad image with Buarque, Leao, and Bethania in top hats and shiny uniforms – and the music follows up with a similarly lively spirit – samba-esque, with other touches of rock and jazz production that give the work an expansive and trippy feel. Roberto Menescal handled the arrangements – and titles include "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Mais Uma Estrela" by Nara Leao, "Soneto" by Orquesta De Cordas, "Soneto" by Nara Leao, "Partido Alto" by MPB-4, "Formosa" by Nara Leao & Maria Bethania, "Baioque" by Maria Bethania, and "Cantores De Radio" by Chico, Naria, and Maria together!

✨✧ Graham CollierDown Another Road/Songs For My Father/Mosaics ... CD
Fontana/Philips/BGO (UK), 1969/1970/1971. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
3 incredible albums from the British jazz scene at the end of the 60s – all together in one 2CD package! Down Another Road is incredible work from one of England's greatest jazz talents – bassist Graham Collier, a player with an amazing ability to absorb a lot of the modern and progressive influences of his jazz generation – but all without succumbing to the same indulgences as them – a fact which resulted in a razor-sharp style that forged some of the freshest jazz ever to come out of the UK. This 1969 album is a masterpiece – filled with a modal groove and a strident searching theme, yet also as tight and grooving as most of the best Blue Note sessions from the same time. Harry Beckett's on trumpet, Nick Evans is on trombone, John Marshall plays drums, and Stan Sulzmann handles the reeds. Tracks include "Down Another Road", "Danish Blue", "The Barley Mow", and "Aberdeen Angus". Songs For My Father is a masterpiece of modernist soul jazz, with a sound that recalls the best late Blue Note work by Lee Morgan or Hank Mobley. Alan Wakeman's tenor is perfectly pitched, and searingly searching; Harry Beckett's trumpet is round, lyrical, and filled with soul; and the piano of John Taylor comps along in chunky modal grooves that make the whole album fall together brilliantly. Tracks include "Song One", "Song Two", "Song Three", etc – and they're all fantastic! Mosaics is a wonderfully searching session – filled with warm McCoy Tyner-esque modal moments, and searing post-Coltrane solos! The album comprises one long piece – Collier's "Mosaics" – performed live by a group that includes Alan Wakeman on tenor and soprano, Harry Beckett on trumpet, and Geoff Castle on piano. "Mosaics" has that amazing mid 60s Coltrane quality of going out in a spiritual kind of way – yet always returning to the groove, never getting too free, and always remaining firmly focused on the direction ahead. All players are great, and the record crackles with the intensity of a classic session on Impulse! CD

Gal Costa pays tribute to one of the greatest Brazilian songwriters of an earlier age – the great Ary Barroso, one of the first to also get his songs translated into other global languages too! The language here is all Portuguese, though – but nicely updated by Gal in that range of styles she was using at the end of the 70s – a bit of jazz at times, and with that evolved level of MPB arrangement that was helping song artists find their way forward – done on this set by arrangers Roberto Menescal and Perna Froes. Caetano Veloso joins Gal on a duet of "No Tabuleiro Da Bahiana", and other tracks include "E Luxo So", "Folha Morta", "Camisa Amarela", "Aquarela Do Brasil", and "Novo Amor" – plus Gal's classic reading of "Aquarela Do Brasil".

Philips/Mercury (Brazil), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from 1969, but also features some even heavier and more tripped out guitar – in a way that really pushes the psychedelic aspect of the work! The sound here is really amazing – very fuzzy and freaky at times, in ways that make the album one of the most rocking sets of the entire Tropicalia scene, but in ways that still hang onto the quirky experimental qualities of work by Os Mutantes or Caetano Veloso. Gal's vocals really rip out amazingly at times – light years away from the sweet sound of the late 70s, and more in the frenetic, urgent style you'd expect from the politically-charged scene that spawned the set. Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil join Gal on a great version of "Pais Tropical", Jards Macale guest stars on the classic "Empty Boat" – and other tracks include "Tuareg", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Pulsars E Quasars", and "Cultura E Civilizaco". Essential! CD

Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Essential early material by Gal Costa! The record is her first after the immediate Tropicalia years, and it's a stunning blend of styles that seems to draw heavily from changes going on in the American rock scene at the time. The core of the music is still steeped in Brazilian elements – but there's a lot of influences coming into play on the album, like bluesy rock phrasing, showy nostalgia-heavy arrangements, psychedelic production elements, and some of the baroque orchestrations that would show up on Gal's later albums in the 70s. Includes a wonderful version of Caetano's "London London" and "Dixa Sangrar", the moody bossa "Falsa Baiana", Gilberto Gil's "Lingua Do P" and "Mini Misterio", and the tracks "The Archaic Lonely Star Blues", "Love, Try, & Die", and "Hotel Das Estrelas".

Beautiful airy bossa!

Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano – with backing that is extremely light and subtle. Roberto Quartin was the artistic director on the session, and the album includes a lot of the same whimsical touches he brought to his work on the Forma and Quartin labels.

Philips/Fantome Phonographique (Italy), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Groundbreaking analogue electronics from the Dutch team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – two musicians who can be as playful as the tem of Perry & Kingsley, but also hit some of the darker modes of the academic circuit as well! The title is very well-put – as the record has a vibe that's very outer space at times – more of a sense of the area around the electronic elements at the core – which has them echoing out nicely into the cosmos, and reaching for so many different melodic modes, it almost feels as if they're trying to make contact with other civilizations! Some tunes have a playfulness that almost evokes the German new wave of 15 years later – others are very much in the best Dutch styles of the 60s – and the whole thing sounds sort of like a mad robot playing a crazy space organ on a merry go round while dropping acid. Titles include "Moon Maid", "Sonik Re-Entry", "Pianoforte", "Orbit", "Song Of The Second Moon", and "The Visitor From Inner Space". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A wild little concept album from the Four Seasons – one that's packaged in newspaper-style cover, and which presents tunes that almost have that late 60s British "snapshots of life" approach to pop – particularly that put forth by The Kinks on Village Green Preservation Society. The album's a true genius effort from Bob Gaudio – now risen to the ranks of producer for the group, and also the key songwriter for the album too – working here in tandem with the great Jake Holmes, a wonderful choice for a record like this! Arrangements are inventive, playful, and definitely at a level that shows some influence from Pet Sounds or Sgt Peppers – but there's also a focused, all-pop approach to the tunes too – one that's hook-heavy even when trippy, and which shows that the Four Seasons were as great at psychedelic and Sunshine Pop as any of the groups they'd inspired over the years. Titles include "Saturday's Father", "Wall Street Village Day", "Wonder What You'll Be", "Soul Of A Woman", "Something's On Her Mind", "American Crucifixion Resurrection", and "Mrs Stately's Garden".

Serge GainsbourgHistoire De Melody Nelson (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's been sampled countless times over the years, and which has gotten the album continuous play on both sides of the Atlantic for many many years. The mighty Jean-Claude Vannier handles the arrangements, and Serge mutters the lyrics over the top, in a raspy loud whisper – while the funky rhythms dart in and out of odd washes of sound, and unusual eerie sounds. There's a very strong soundtrack feel to the album, as waves of music envelop the lyrics – tripped out in funky beats that have become legendary over the years, thanks to some very famous samples! Titles include "En Melody", "Cargo Culte", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Valse De Melody", "Ah! Melody", and "L'Hotel Particulier". Great new LP reissue package – with 180 gram vinyl, notes, an interview, and even lyrics in English & French! LP, Vinyl record album

France Gall won the Eurovision song contest with the title track of this one – and for good reason too, given that the tune is totally groovy! The rest of the work here really follows suit – romping, jerking, and grooving in that wonderful mix of mod rhythms that made France's 60s material so great – some of the best of the French pop scene at the time, with a sound that's really a cut above on all the numbers here! Backings are by the mighty Alain Gouraguer, who brings in a hip mix of jazz inflections, rocking rhythms, and some of the more sparkling soundtrack elements bubbling in the French 60s scene – all a perfect accompaniment for Gall's catchy girl pop vocals. Titles include "Poupee De Cire Poupee De Son", written by Serge Gainsbourg – plus "Le Coeur Qui Jazze", "Le Premier Chagrin D'Amour", "On T'Avait Prevenue", "Dis A Ton Capitaine", "Nounours", "Laisse Tomber Les Filles", and "Bonne Nuit". CD features bonus stereo mixes of "Poupee De Cire Poupee De Son" and "Prince Charmant". CD

Gilberto GilRefavela (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Gilberto Gil – a set that beautifully mixes rootsy elements with tighter funk arrangements – in a style that's not unlike some of the 70s samba soul experiments from Jorge Ben! The record borrows heavily from American funk and soul of the time, and takes Gil's tight songwriting and infuses it with an even catchier edge than ever before – really creating a fantastic groove that seems to illuminate Gilberto's lyrics even more than before – with a sense of personality and joy that really comes through, even beyond the barriers of language! The whole thing's wonderful – tight, but never overproduced – and very individual, despite an influence from American soul music. Titles include "Rafavela", "Aqui E Agora", "Ile Aye", "Baba Alapala", "Era Nova", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Balafon". LP, Vinyl record album

Joao GilbertoJoao Gilberto En Mexico (aka Ela E Carioca) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $16.99
A rare Joao Gilberto session from 1970, recorded in Mexico – very unique in contrast to his other Brazilian sessions of the time! Joao's singing in his sweetest fragile voice, and accompanying himself on guitar – while, from time to time, light arrangements drift in and out of the tracks – recorded with less spaciousness than on earlier records, and always veering more towards a solo spotlight sort of sound for Gilberto. The sound's somewhere between his early work and the airiness of his legendary album from 1973 – and titles include "De Conversa En Conversa", "O Sapo", "Joao Marcelo", "Astronauta", and "Eclipse".

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good ... $9.99
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and a record not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", and "Dizzy Atmosphere". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre HodeirJazz Et Jazz ... LP
Philips, 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Brilliant work from the modernist underground late 50s Paris! Andre Hodeir was one of the city's best-known jazz composers and arrangers at the time – a key part of the postwar scene, and its development into its own style away from strictly American sounds. Hodier's working here with a great batch of French players that include Martial Solal, Roger Guerin, Pierre Gossez, and Pierre Michelot – plus the then-French resident Kenny Clarke. The music swings much more than on other sessions of this type, and works extremely well throughout at blending tight jazzy lines with very "out there" concepts – especially in a way that we never really see in 50's recordings like this. Christine Legrand is on vocals, and although this was years before the Swingle Singers did their thing, and especially before they went onto do avant garde material by Berio, she's got these insane vocals here that are simply astounding. Tracks include "Jazz Et Jazz", "Trope A Saint-Trop", "Jazz Cantata", and "Osymetrios". Very good stuff, and unlike anything else we can think of! LP, Vinyl record album

The session's a monster – cut with rhythmic backing by Milt Jackson on piano (!?), Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – and two cuts feature additional percussion by Gana M'Bow, which gives the set a wonderful kick. Wilen's tone is one of the best we've ever heard on tenor – and the quality of the set is incredible – a unique opportunity to hear one of Europe's greatest jazz players ever in the prime of his early years!

Pim JacobsCome Fly With Me ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet session of laidback trio material – recorded by Dutch pianist Pim Jacobs in the early 80s, with a much more expansive sound than his more famous recordings from the 50s! In the postwar years, Pim was one of the bigger new talents on the European scene – famous for his backing work with a number of singers – but this set from later years shows that he hasn't lost an ounce of his talent, and has really developed a way of stretching out, even in a small space – to make the most of whatever tune he takes on! The album has Pim on acoustic piano – working across the keys with a nice light touch that almost shows the influence of the electric generation – and tracks include "Come Fly With Me", "I've Got The World On A String", "I Love You", "Body & Soul", and "Sultry Serenade".

When all four horns blow together, the sound is amazing – and there's often some really wonderful currents in the rhythms, too – thanks to a rhythm trio that features Joachim Kuhn on piano, Palle Danielsson on bass, and Hank Bennink on drums!

Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary Brazilian artists, her best work is usually incredibly elusive – often obscured by some of her more traditional, or more bossa-oriented records. This one features the lady at her most experimental – singing in this dark mode with great arrangements from Rogerio Duprat – the backstage architect of so many other important Tropicalia albums of the time. The arrangements are wonderful – with a spooky baroque quality that will haunt you long after the Mutantes crazy guitars have died down – the more subtle side of the Brazilian palette during this revolutionary period, and work that arguably had a much longer-lasting effect. Titles include "Mulher", "Infelizmente", "Tema De Os Inconfidentes", "Anoiteceus", and "Quem E". CD

One of Nara Leao's later bossa gems – done in a real return to basics, and with some great help here from Roberto Menescal! Roberto arranged, produced, and plays guitar in the small combo backing Nara's vocals – and the sound is a strong precursor to the huge wave of bossa revival sessions that Menescal has done in recent years, recorded with a similarly bright touch on the instrumentation – but with deeper, more classic production too. Nara's vocals are as lovely and breezy as ever, and as on her Meus Sonhos Dourados album, titles include a number of older American standards reworked with Portuguese lyrics – with new titles that include "Maravilha", "Pleno Verao", "So Voce", "Saudades De Voce", and "Sem Querer".

Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this French version has a very lovely cover with Catherine Deneuve standing amidst some umbrellas! Great 2LP version – with more material than the original LP release! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the biggest world music hits of the 60s – a unique album that mixes Congolese songs with a new interpretation of the Latin mass! Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin are an ensemble of young singers with a very joyous sort of feel – one that works equally well for the traditional numbers, and for the new recasting of the mass which takes up the second half of the record. Instrumentation is relatively spare – often just a bit of percussion underneath the soaring voices – and titles include the entire "Missa Luba", plus "Banaha", "Twai Tshinaminai", "Lutuku & A Bene Kanyoka", "Ebu Ewale Kemai", and "Dibwe Diambula Kabanda".

An incredible later meeting by two of the most sophisticated musical talents of the bossa generation – and a record that's done in the same intimate, spare setting as Jobim's meeting with Elis Regina a few years before! Production is by bossa legend Aloysio De Oliveira – and the sound is relatively clean and simple – often just a bit of piano, guitar, and percussion behind the up-close and personal vocals of the tunes. Lobo & Jobim sing together on most of the record – in a double-voiced style that's almost a bit like that used on Jobim's incredible Matita Pere record from the 70s. Edu sings solo on "Chovendo Na Roseira", Tom sings solo on "Angela" – and the pair duet on the tracks "Canto Triste", "Vento Bravo", "Moto Continuo", "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Ai Quem Me Dera", and "Luiza".

Roberto Menescal produced, and arrangements by Theo Barros have a slow-building, unassuming quality that's really great.

A really fantastic final album from The Peddlers – the UK trio who effortlessly mixed jazz and soul in the 60s, but who work here in a more expanded format! All the best elements of the group's sound are still nicely in place – those raspy vocals, strong use of keyboards, and especially their great sense of a groove – one that's made them a favorite for samples for more sophisticated DJs and producers over the years! But here, the sound is maybe even cooler – thanks to work from the London Philharmonic. Group leader/singer/keyboardist Roy Phillips composed the whole thing, and the Peddlers are at the core – but they're also helped out by percussionist John Punter and guitarist Toney Walmsley, and Peter Robinson – who did the larger orchestrations. Titles include "This Strange Affair", "Raining In London", "Sequence Of Thought", "Did She", "Sequence Of Thought", "In Juxtaposition", "Under London Nights", "River Lives", "I Have Seen", "Impressions", and "A Year And A Day Metamorphosis". 2LP set features a rare bonus album – with tracks from singles that include "Nothing Sacred", "Manah", "Sing Me An Old Song", "Have You Ever Been To Georgia", and "Back Alley Jane".

The record captures Elis Regina at a prime early stage – when her voice was raw and filled with emotion, and when she was backed by some excellent arrangements that blended jazz, bossa, and more complicated vocal settings. The material is handled extremely well – and the set list includes many early versions of songs by some of Brazil's best writers, like "Cancao Do Sal" by Milton Nascimento, "Sonho De Maria" by Marcos Valle, "Tem Mais Samba" by Chico Buarque, "Lunik 9" and "Roda" by Gilberto Gil, "Pra Dizer Adeus" by Edu Lobo, and "Boa Palavra" by Caetano Veloso.

One of the most diverse albums that Elis Regina cut during the 70s – a set that seems to leap from style to style with each new track, and really build from some of the more staid and jazz-based styles of her other records! Cesar Camargo Mariano is still in charge of arrangements here, but the overall sound is relatively different – mellow one minute, rockish the next, cast in stark piano after that, and always moving onward with the sort of variety we might expect from Gal Costa or Maria Bethania at this point. Some cuts are tinged with Latin and South American instrumentation, while others more guitar and electric keyboards – and highlights of the album include versions of two Joao Bosco songs "O Cavaleiro E Os Monihos" and "Jardins De Infancia", which has a beautiful soaring electric feel to it, and is a real groover along the lines of the tracks you might find on Blue Brazil.

Elis ReginaSamba Eu Canto Assim (Japanese pressing – with bonus track) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. Used ... $18.99
One of the first albums ever by this legendary bossa singer! Even at this young age, Elis Regina diplays a talent for interpretation and an emotional power that few other Brazilian vocalists could match – a way of putting over a tune that brought a whole new level of sophistication to Brazilian music in the 60s! On the set, Elis manages to give the songs a great deal of life, without smothering them in the heavier over-emotional style used by other Brazilian singers at the time – and works with light, lively, jazzy backings that are totally great. The result is a crackling batch of samba and bossa tracks that shines with warmth and imagination. The set includes a lot of tracks by Edu Lobo, and titles include "Sou Sem Paz", "Reza", "Por Um Amor Maior", "Joao Valentao", "Aleluia", "Ultimo Canto", and "Preciso Aprender A Ser So". Plus, this Japanese version has a bonus track – "Arrasto"! CD

A third classic set from the team of Elis Regina and Jair Rodrigues – two artists who hardly worked together in later years, but who were one of the greatest teams going in 60s Brazil! As with previous volumes, the album's recorded live – in a mode that has each artist on their own on some tracks, then trading lines back and forth on others – especially the extended "pot-pourri" numbers that Elis and Jair really helped to popularize at the time. Backings are extremely tight and jazzy – more so than on some of the Regina studio albums – and there's a crackling sense of energy throughout the whole thing – not just from the combo, but also from the audience too, who really go wild during the set! Titles include "Manifesto", "Amor De Carnaval", "O Ser Humano", "Imagem", and "Marcha Da Quarta" – and two longer "pot-pourri" tracks. LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Anthology, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The long hair and casual image on the cover really says a lot about the sound of the record – as vocalist Catherine Ribeiro works here with some very open, experimental grooves from Alpes – all at a level that has that freewheeling, open-minded sound of the French scene at the time! A few years earlier, and Ribeiro would have been more of an intellectual folk singer – but here, her vocals are blended with more cosmic performances by Alpes – who use organ, guitars, and the especially cool "cosmophone" to create flowing tracks that are often given a bit of bubbling percussion at the bottom – mixing electric and earthy in this really great way. These guys are far less posturing than other prog bands of the time – in a way we really appreciate – and titles include "Diborowska", "Aria Populaire", "Dingue", "Alpes 2", and "Alpilles".

Catherine Ribeiro & AlpesCatherine Ribeiro & Alpes No 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Anthology, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of those records that you might not know anything about, but which hardly also needs any introduction – because from the very first moment, the sound will tell you that you're onto something completely different and special! There's no easy way to describe the music of Catherine Ribeiro – because at some level, she's got an avant folk quality that's a bit like her contemporaries on the Saravah label – but at another, she's much more freewheeling and experimental – a bit like Nico on her early 70s masterpieces, especially in the way that the music blends striking vocals with organ and acoustic guitar. Yet neither of those references are quite correct, either – but we can promise that once Ribeiro's got you in her grasp, it's very hard to get away – as you'll discover on tunes "Poeme Non Epique", "Silen Voy Kathy", "15 Aout 1970", and "Sirba".

Catherine Ribeiro & AlpesPaix (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Anthology, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of those key records that shows the really unique side of the French scene at the start of the 70s – an underground world that was a bit hippie, certainly trippy, and very open to other ideas too – wrapped up in a sound that was both cosmic and intellectual at the same time! Catherine Ribeiro sings here with the group Alpes – a combo who might be more prog in another setting, but who get a more sensitive sound and style from Ribeiro's vocals – while still allowing themselves to take off on flights of fancy when they want – sounding especially cool on their use of "cosmophone" and "percuphone"! The groove moves between long electric solos and more dramatic vocal moments from Catherine – and titles include the side-long "Un Jour La Mort" – plus "Roc Alpin", "Paix", and "Jusqu'A Ce Que La Force De T'Aimer Me Manque LP, Vinyl record album

Jair RodriguesO Sorriso Do Jair ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1966. Very Good ... $6.99
A cool 60s live set from Jair Rodrigues – one that captures his vocals with a raspy, earthy edge that's really great – mixed up here both in upbeat jazzy samba backings, and some folksier moments too! The album has all the great energy that Jair brought to his famous live dates with Elis Regina – and he seems to borrow a lot from her style on the album's groovers, of which there are many! Titles include "Contracanto", "A Rita", "Vem Menina", "Disparada", "Rapaz Da Moda", "Inae", "Deixa Como Esta", and "No Balanco Do Jequibau". LP, Vinyl record album

Herman SchoonderwaltWinner (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/NJA (Netherlands), 1964. New Copy ... $19.99
The first full length album from Dutch reedman Herman Schoonderwalt – a musician pictured with a clarinet on the cover, but who also blows alto and soprano sax on the date as well! Schoonderwalt had appeared on a few of the previous well-circulated Jazz Behind The Dikes series – an important showcase for Dutch jazz in the postwar years – but this is the first set to feature the reedman as a leader, and he really seems to have saved up all of his best energy for the session – blowing with an easy dexterity on all instruments, ala Jimmy Giuffre – and with an open flow that's more modern than you might expect, almost the mix of modernism and lyricism that you'd get from Stan Getz in his post-bossa years. The rhythm section is great – Rob Madna on piano, Ruud Jacobs on bass, and Cees See on drums – and titles include "Nardis", "The Winner", "My Plea", "Speak Low", "The Winker", "Get Out Of Town", and "I Loves You Porgy". CD features 5 bonus tracks – with a variety of different group settings – "Cheops", "Mensen Van Morgen", "Our Delight", "Tranquilloquy", and "Visca L'Ampurda". CD

Nina SimoneBroadway Blues Ballads ... LP
Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Don't let the "broadway" or the "blues" or the "ballads" in the title put you off – because this album's way more than any of those! As usual, Nina takes tunes that have common roots and she makes them all her own – working here with arrangements by Horace Ott and Hal Mooney, Nina shifts modes and moods with effortless ease, turning songs from ordinary tunes into fierce expressions of righteous soul. Titles include "The Laziest Gal In Town", "Nobody", "I Am Blessed", "Of This I'm Sure", "See Line Woman", "Last Rose Of Summer", and "How Can I". LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneHigh Priestess Of Soul ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Classic work from Nina Simone – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! Nina Simone certainly emerged as the high priestess of soul during her monumental stretch for Philips Records in the 60s – as she moved way past jazz, way past some of the folk she'd begun tapping into, and into this new righteous territory that paved the way for countless other hip singers to come! Simone does a great job of mixing gutbuckety roots with hipper, 60s soul inflections – and the set's a treasure trove of great tunes – including her awesome reading of "Work Song", plus "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Come Ye", "I Hold No Grudge", "I'm Going Back Home", "I'm Gonna Leave You", "Take Me To The Water", and "The Gal From Joe's".

Zoot SimsCookin' ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the greatest Zoot Sims albums of the 60s – a very smoking live set, recorded in the UK with a hip British rhythm section! Zoot's blowing in front of the Stan Tracy trio – a group led by pianist Tracy, with a style that was every bit as swinging as it was modern and fresh. The style makes for a very different approach than some of Sims' American albums of the time – a bit more edgey, with tracks that cut into the groove in unusual ways. Ronnie Scott and Jimmy Deuchar join the group for one track – "Desperation" – and other titles include "Love For Sale", "Autumn Leaves", "Somebody Loves Me", and "Gone With The Wind". CD

Philips (Japan), 1975. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Lovely work from this overlooked Japanese pianist – a really great player who hits some warmly soulful grooves in this mid 70s set! The album features Kunihiko Sugano's trio working with an extra percussionist – a player who doesn't step in much, but who manages to bring a special sort of sound to the set – a snappingly soulful bottom that seems to push the piano even more than before, taking Sugano's normally lyrical sound and stretching it out with some warmly grooving energy. Titles include great takes of "On A Clear Day", "Route 66", "Stella By Starlight", and the original "Erromanga". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Swingle SingersBach's Greatest Hits (aka Jazz Sebastian Bach) ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A fantastic bit of vocal jazz, sung by the legendary Swingle Singers in a style that shaped easy listening and soundtrack music for years to come! The French group had roots in vocalese jazz traditions – from groups like Lambert Hendricks & Ross or Les Double Six – but for this groundbreaking album, they moved into a semi-classical vein, and did these great jazzy takes on compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach. The whole thing sounds hokey, but it's plenty groovy – and it was a huuuuge influence on easy and soundtrack work for decades to come, including the wonderful work of I Cantori Moderni and some of the groovier French composers. Titles include "Sinfonia", "Prelude No 9", "Bouree", "Aria", "Choral No 1", and "Fugue In D Major". LP, Vinyl record album

Swingle Singers with the Modern Jazz QuartetEncounter – The Swingle Singers With The Modern Jazz Quartet (aka Place Vendome) ... LP
Philips, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
An excellent set that has the vocal talents of the Swingle Singers backed by the sweet and mellow instrumentation of the Modern Jazz Quartet! Given that John Lewis & Co were essentially local residents in Paris for so many years, it's amazing it took them until 1966 to hook up with Ward Swingle's hip vocal group – but the album's more than worth the wait, as the MJQ really help open things up, and take the Swingles into more complicated territory than before. Milt Jackson's vibes are especially great alongside the groovy vocals – and titles include "Little David's Fugue", "Vendome", "When I Am Laid In Earth", "Air For G String", and "Three Windows". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the top seam, light wear, and light staining.)
