Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Boleros ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A set that's a bit mellower than some of the other 60s records by Brazilian organist Ely Arcoverde – but one that's still got a very groovy sound overall! As you'd guess by the "boleros" in the title, most tunes are ballads – slow-steppers with a great late nite vibe, which gives Ely plenty of room to work all this cool magic on the keys of the electric organ – at a level that's somewhere between American jazz Hammond players, and maybe the more exotic modes of an artist like Korla Pandit! As with other records, Ely finds a way to "sing" through the keys – almost an early organ-driven version of vocoder material – and titles include "Que Sera De Ti", "O Divorcio", "Sonhar Contigo", "Abraca Me", and the side-long "Selecao De Boleros".

Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Sambas Vol 2 ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the weirdest, wildest organ work we've ever heard – and that's coming from folks with a record collection stuffed with Jack McDuff, Jimmy Smith, and even Sun Ra! Ely Arcoverde is a bit in the territory of Brazilian 60s organ contemporary Walter Wanderley – especially in the way that he mixes his melodies with samba rhythms – but he's also got a very different approach on the keyboard, and often uses the instrument to "sing" – in ways that are very much like the "canta" promised in the title! At some points, we'd swear that Ely was almost using an early variation of a vocoder – not that the sound is 80s, but that he gets this really cool "voice" out of the instrument – as it moves between percussion, occasional chorus vocals, and some nicely jazzy instrumentation. Titles include "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Cidade Maravilhosa", "Madame Fulana De Tal", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Canta Maria", "Tem Bobo Pra Tudo", and "Agua Com Areia". CD

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 1 ... LP
RGE/Audio Clarity (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
The debut of a legend – Chico Buarque's first album for RGE, and a groundbreaking batch of tunes that helped shape the sound of popular music in Brazil for years to come! Buarque predates the Tropicalia era, but is working here in a style that clearly allowed for their later impact – a mode that draws on styles from bossa, folklore, and samba – but which somehow manages to rise into a groove that's all its own. Buarque's genius can immediately be summed up in classics on the set – like "Pedro Pedreiro", "A Rita", "Tem Mais Samba", "A Banda", and "Ole Ola" – all wonderful numbers that make the album an essential one in any collection!

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosErasmo Carlos & Os Tremendoes ... CD
RGE/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A seminal set from Erasmo Carlos – a record that has him stepping past the simpler rock modes of his youth, and really embracing some of the great changes going on in Brazilian music at the start of the 70s! These changes aren't just the expected psych modes, but also some of the more lofty, complicated arrangements used by artists like Marcos Valle or Edu Lobo – a mode that comes through beautifully here and sets up Erasmo's vocals with these incredible backings that really make him sound fantastic – a bit funky here, a bit groovy there – and sometimes with this more cerebral sound that none of his listeners would have expected a few records back. Titles include "Estou Dez Anos Atrasado", "Jeep", "Teletema", "Sentado A Beira Do Caminho", "Coqueiro Verde", "A Bronca Da Galinha", "Menina", and "Saudosismo". Great reissue, too – with detailed notes – and song translations in English! CD

Jorginho Do ImperioJorginho Do Imperio (1987) ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
A late 80s album from Jorginho Do Imperio – but one that's got the same sharp samba vibe as similar records from a decade or two before! The production is great – mostly in that wide, echoey RGE Records mode – which allows the lively percussion, guitar lines, and chorus vocals to resonate with this great sense of space behind Jorginho's led – which itself has this bold, resonant quality that really sends the tunes home! Titles include "Pai Joao", "Eu Vi Que Te Amo", "Mala Pesada", "Canto Pra La", "Sabia Que Voce Vinha", and "Nao Venha Me Tapear". CD

LygiaLygia ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
A dark-tinged set of vocal work from the lovely Lygia – a singer we only know from this rare 60s set for RGE – filled with great arrangements from maestros Gaya and Pocho, as well as bossa jazzers Manfredo Fest and The Zimbo Trio! The album's got a fuller, richer quality than many bossa vocal sets from the time – some of the moodier qualities of Brazilian female vocals from the previous decade, but served up without too much drama or overdone emotion. Lygia's sense of sadness is nicely offset by the lighter touches in some of the backings – a floating flute line, a tinkling piano, and occasional snapping snare to bring in a bit of warmth – and titles include "Quem Ri Melhor", "Historia De Uma Crianca", "Tempo De Sorrir", "So Por Amor", "Joao Ninguem", and "Encontro Com A Saudade".

Os Seis Em PontoOs Seis Em Ponto ... LP
RGE/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A sweet bossa combo from 60s Brazil – a jazzy little group that features some very early work on piano and arrangements from Francis Hime – whose sense of tone and color is already shining through, even at a relatively young age! Hime plays piano, and Nelson Motta plays guitar – but the album really gets some great energy from the combination of flute and trombone – a mixture of light and dark, lyrical and moody, balanced out in a way that really makes the album something special! All tunes are instrumental – and although there's a few familiar bossa-era compositions in the mix, Hime also contributes a lot of originals too – and titles include "Mar Azul", "Se Voce Peansar", "Sem Mais Adeus", "A Paz De Um Homem So", "Amor A Esmo", and "Boranda".

Djalma PiresO Tempo Passa O Samba Fica ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
Warmly soulful samba from Djalma Pires – a singer who's got a nice way of sliding into the groove, and a style that's maybe a bit gentler than some of his contemporaries – but in a way that still really fits the setting! Backings are in the best mode of the RGE label at the time – nicely bouncing, raw at the core, and never too overdone – which makes for a very personal vibe to the whole thing, and a completely performance from Djalma! Titles include "A Fonte Secou", "Obsessao", "Viva Meu Samba", "Que Rei Sou Eu", "Balanca Zona Sul", "O Orvalho VEm Caindo", and "Exaltacao A Mangueira". CD

Som Okey 5Som Okey 5 ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $14.99
Very groovy pop from late 60s Brazil – a post-bossa combo who harmonize along with their grooves, and who work here on a mix of organ, guitar, and piano! The style's a fair bit like some of the best harmony vocal work coming out of EMI/Odeon during the same stretch – a great blend of earlier bossa modes and more baroque pop influences – all soaring along in a mix of different rhythms that continue to delight throughout the entire set! There's a real Blue Brazil sort of feel to the whole record – a tightness and love of rhythm that graces both the vocals and small combo instrumentation. Tracks include "Tava Na Cara", "Beto Rockfeller", "Cantiga Por Luciana", "Que Maravilha", "Mar", "Juliana", "Hier Encore", "Duro De Roer", and "Pais Tropical". CD

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... CD
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's got an amazing ear for color and tone, balanced out with some completely sublime grooves – not smooth coffee shop bossa nova, but instead the harder sort of rhythms that were cooked up by the best combos in Brazil! The tunes are as warm and soulful as they are tight and angular – a perfect summation of the bossa jazz idiom at its truest expression – and the writing is fantastic throughout, with original songs that really provide a fresh change from some of the too-played hits of the generation. Instrumentation includes trombone from Raul De Souza, drums from Milton Banana, tenor from Meirelles, and alto sax from Paulo Moura – on titles that include the classic groover "Nebulosa", plus the tracks "Clouds", "Nectar", "Embalo", and "Estou Nessa Agora". A delight through and through – and one we never tire of! CD

Rosana ToledoA Voz Do Amor ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful ballads in an old school Brazilian mode – not the lighter styles of the bossa nova generation, but the richer sounds of the scene before – although maybe done with the same sort of saudade as some of the Brazilian singers to emerge in the 60s! Rosana Toledo's style here ties maybe more closely to larger South and Central American styles of the period – but the arrangements still show that special sort of sophistication that always made Brazilian music so great in the postwar years – handled by Pocho Perez, and nicely understated throughout. Titles include "Alem Do Amor", "Francamente", "Tudo De Mim", "Distancia", "Raizes", "Saber Mentir", and "Perdendo O Seu Amor". CD

RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
Rosana Toledo's got some mighty hefty hair on the front cover – but the album is much less stiff and formal – as the singer really taps into her emotive depths throughout – showing us that although life goes on, as promised by the title, it's not without its melancholy moments! Arrangements are relatively full, with light percussion underneath larger orchestrations – all handled by Maestro Nelsinho, on titles that include "Nao Me Diga Adeus", "Salve Ogum", "E A Vida Continua", "Porque Fui Te Encontrar", "Desolacao", "Pra Que Mentir", and "Feitio De Oracao".

ToquinhoBoca Da Noite ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1974. Used ... $18.99
A fantastic album from Toquinho – one of the best that he cut during the 70s! This album's got a much more stripped-down sound than others – with a soulful mix of vocals and spare acoustic guitar that sounds somewhere between the early 70s work of Baden Powell and Terry Callier – and which is way different than the bossa revival work Toquinho cut with Vinicius De Moraes! There's some larger arrangements lurking at the back of most tracks – but these are kept clean, and relatively spare – so that the strongest focus is on Toquinho's voice and guitar. Titles include a sparkling remake of "Asa Branca", done with a spare style that still retains the grandiose quality of the song – plus "Sem Enredo", "Boca Da Noite", "1969, Aeroporto Do Galeo", "Noite Longa", and "Lembrando Josh White".

One of the coolest albums ever from this hip Brazilian organist – a set that just features a small combo behind his lead work on the keys – in a mode that ties the album more strongly to the world of samba and bossa jazz than any of his other records of the decade! There's still lots of creative constructions on the keys, but they usually swing a bit more strongly too – given nice support by bass, guitar, and drums – on tunes that include early compositions by Marcos Valle, Hermeto Pascoal, and Edu Lobo! Titles include "Asteroide", "Deus Brasileiro", "Arrastao", "Sete Contos", "Menino Das Laranjas", "Meu Pajeu", "Vai Joao", and "Cancao Do Amor Que Foi". CD

RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maysa sings here with great arrangements from maestro Erlon Chaves – warm, round, and fluid – in a way that mixes leaner bossa rhythms with the more romantic styles of an earlier generation! Maysa's more emotive qualities are nicely kept in check by the approach – and her vocals her flow along beautifully with the blend of strings, piano, and percussion used by Chaves – all presented in ways that remind us a lot of Deodato's best full orchestrations from the same period. The whole thing's nicely compressed, and never overdone – and titles include "Favela", "O Amor Que Acabou", "Mil Flores", "Ah Se Eu Pudesse", "Round Midnight", "Fim De Noite", "Cancao Do Meu Amor", and "Agua De Beber".

Very early work from Maysa – an album recorded in 1957, before her better-known bossa sides of the 60s – and a set that shows the singer in the kind of full-voiced style that first made her a legend! Masya's got a great talent for subtle drama here – a kind of deep burning vibe that really fits her look on the cover image – almost like she's defiantly holding back her emotions, and infusing the lyrics of the tunes with this subtle sense of sadness and loss. The backings are light – fuller orchestrations, but never overdone – and titles include "Franqueza", "O Que", "To The End Of The Earth", "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce", and "Ouca". CD

That's Pap, not pop – Brazilian trumpeter Papudinho, who blows his horn over some very groovy arrangements in this rare set from the start of the 70s! The vibe here is a lot like the best Odeon sessions of the Blue Brazil generation – a tight mix of jazz, samba, and soul – all instrumental, and with a combo that has some really great organ, tenor, and guitar over quick-moving rhythms – which creates a beautifully playful vibe that transforms any tunes that the group gets their hands on! Titles include "Som Tropical", "Que Mara Vilha", "Hare Krishna", "Custe O Que Custar", "Looky Looky", "Aquarius", "You've Got Your Troubles", and "Pais Tropical". CD

The great Breno Sauer always has a great ear for blending samba rhythms and jazz – and here, he really lets that talent explode in a fantastic array of colors and tone! The instrumentation is great – Breno's vibes in the lead, with guitar, accordion, bass, and drums – the last of which are worth the price of admission themselves, as they often crackle with lots of complicated changes in the rhythms to keep up with the samba groove – while the vibes, guitar, and accordion deliver a warm palette of sounds over the the top! A standout instrumental classic from the RGE catalog of the 60s – with titles that include "Sambabessa", "Liberdade Demais", "Senhorita", "Luciana", "Amor E Paz", "Cancao Do Amor Mais Triste", "Samba Da Madrugada", and "Lembrancas".

The sound is warm and open – never overindulgent, but stretching out in ways the core bossa trio could never do on their own – using the best rhythmic qualities of the sax and guitar to carve out some wonderful grooves! The album includes a very nice version of "Tudo Bem", a cover of Milton Nascimento's "Fe Cega Faca Amolada", and the cuts "Viola Violar" and "Laurecy Ate Ja". CD

Carlinhos handles the Hammond – an instrument that soars out over lively percussion on most tracks, as Luiz Bandeira deftly moves through different lyrical melodies on medley tracks on the set – then delivers a few tunes of his own as well!

Really moody vocals from Waldecir Lima – an artist with a sound that's a lot deeper and more resonant than most other Brazilian 60s singers who were pictured on the cover holding an acoustic guitar! The style here isn't the light mode of the bossa generation – which usually comes with a package like this – but instead a fuller, richer approach that's almost more resonant with older Cuban vocal modes than sounds from Rio – as Lima's voice is set up with light orchestrations, slow-stepping percussion, and some backup vocals. Titles include "Perfida", "Mulher Nao Muda", "Tudo Ou Nada", "Que Queres Tu De Mim", "Imitacao De Cristo", "Tres Palavras", and "Quantas Palavras". CD

A wonderful early album from Brazilian guitarist/singer Toquinho – done before his famous collaborations with Vincius De Moraes, and with a very different groove! The record features guest appearances by Jorge Ben on two tracks – and much of the record seems to have Toquinho absorbing a bit of Ben's spirit – using lively samba rhythms on some of the best tracks, which creates a groove that's really unexpected – and which makes the album a real standout in his catalog! Toquinho's guitar work is wonderful in the setting – maybe even more compelling in its deftness, and no less full of feeling – and titles include a killer reading of "Que Maravilha", done with Jorge Ben, who also guests on "Carolina Carol Bela" – and other titles include a version of "Bachianinha No 1" with Paulinho Nogueira; a great cover of Ben's "Zana"; and the tracks "Evocacao A Jacob", "Chuva Na Praia De Juqui", "Evocacao De Jacob", "De Ontem Pra Hoje", and "Na Agua Negra Da Lagoa".

Brazilian keyboardist Ubirajara serves up some mighty cool sounds on the Solovox – an instrument that almost feels as if an electric organ has been tied to a theremin – in a way that creates some really otherworldly sounds! The settings are relatively conventional – familiar pop tunes, set up with Latin-styled rhythms – but the unusual keyboard sound is what really makes the whole thing wonderful – glowing out with these weird tones and strange phrasing that almost make you feel like someone's dropped in from outer space to sit in on a record of 60s instrumentals! Titles include "Blame It On The Bossa Nova", "Tudo De Mim", "Uno Per Tutte", "Afrikaan Beat", "Sonhar Contigo", and "El Relicario". CD

Waltel Branco handles the arrangements, and gives the record a great little groove – one that's a mix of percussive samba elements and fuller backings at points – very lively overall, and not unlike some of the best EMI/Odeon projects during the Blue Brazil generation! In fact, the mix of core samba and larger sounds is a bit like Wilson Simonal at his best – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Saudades De La", "Cono De Casa Boa Noite", "Minha Serenata", "Desgruda", "Num Arredo O Pe", and "So Lagrimas".

Some songs are bold and brassy, others have a more exotic vibe – and Ubirajara shows us once again that he's the kind of keyboardist that deserves much wider international appreciation – an artist we'd put right up there with Korla Pandit, Earl Grant, or Walter Wanderley for his sense of tuneful experimentation. Titles include "Fica Mal Com Deus", "Perfida", "El Manisero", "Maria La O", "Frenesi", "Amor Scusami", and "Torna A Surriento". CD

Ubirajara plays the keys – which often have these flowing waves of sound – and arranger Waldemiro Lemke provides the larger backings, which are heavy on percussion and punches of horns – all providing a nice contrast to the electric flow upfront! As you'd guess from the title, many of the tunes are hits – but they're really transformed here into new versions, with a list that includes "El Suco Suco", "Stella By Starlight", "Moscow Nights", "Tender Is The Night", "Come September", "Caminito", "Quem E", and "Donde Estas Corazon".

RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

Timeless, 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A tremendous moment for the great George Adams as a leader – a record that won the reedman widespread attention after some key work in the bigger groups of Gil Evans and Charles Mingus! Adams is a searing, soulful player right from the start – stepping out strongly on tenor at the kickoff of the record, but also blowing some flute with this moodier, more spiritual tone that really deepens our appreciation of his talents as a musician. The rest of the group is filled with similar spiritual energy – and includes Ron Burton on piano, Don Pate on bass, Al Foster on drums, and Azzedin Weston on percussion. The style is nicely different than some of George's later work with Don Pullen – maybe a bit more straightforward, but in a great way that really unlocks his voice as a leader – and titles include "Funk A Roonie Peacock", "Metamorphosis for Mingus", "Paradise Space Shuttle", and "Intentions".

One of those key records that has George Adams and Don Pullen reinventing expectations of jazz for the 80s – both musicians with plenty of ear for the outside, but also coming back home with a well-rounded, deeply-rooted approach that's crucial in taking the American jazz legacy another step forward! Like some of their similar contemporaries, who could also be avant at times, and straight at others – Adams and Pullen have no concern with setting themselves in one camp or another – and not only flesh out the spirit of the record with both of those aspects of their playing, but also have some surprisingly bluesy undercurrents at times. The group features George Adams on tenor, Don Pullen on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – and titles include "Decisions", "Triple Over Time", "I Could Really For You", "Message Urgent", and "Trees & Grass & Things".

A firey session from the quartet of George Adams and Don Pullen – a set that has the group stretching out in some of their most spiritual modes, yet still finding plenty of time to swing as well! Adams is tremendous on tenor – a very fresh voice in the post-Coltrane world, with phrasing that is all his own – even more amplified when he switches to flute – and Pullen's got this ability to go outside, and show his knowledge of the darker corners of the keyboard – yet never let that side of his playing overwhelm things, possibly because the rhythmic accompaniment from Cameron Brown on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums is so strong. Tracks are all long, and very individual – with the group in high spirits on the titles "Earth Beams", "Magnetic Love Field", "Saturday Nite In The Cosmos", "More Flowers", and "Dionysus".

The album's got a bit more of a bite than some of the pair's studio sessions – a bit straighter overall, but recorded with a nice degree of energy, and some long tracks that really let both players open up nicely – in a combo that also features John Scofield on guitar, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The inclusion of Scofield's guitar changes up the group's sound in a nice way – adding in some more chromatic elements that really stand out – and titles include "IJ", "Flame Games", "Song Everlasting", and "Forever Lovers".

There's an understated quality to the record that's really nice – none of the too-modern modes you might guess from the cover image (we'll admit that sometimes we're suspicious of contemporary Blue Note mixing it up too much) – and instead a style that's mighty fresh, yet still pretty earthy – modern, yet never too outside – and a sense of soul that informs proceedings and really helps keep things on track.

The great Leroy Burgess is still going strong on this later album from Aleem – shifting his sound to hit more of an 80s street soul groove, but one that's also got the tighter elements you'd expect from a major label set at the time! Burgess has a voice that's schooled in disco and indie club, but which turns out to be even better for chunkier, more synopated styles – provided by the heavier beats here, at a level that almost makes the set a precursor to later new jack modes.

Bob AllenGeorge Jones – The Life & Times Of A Honky Tonk Legend – Updated Edition ... Book
Backbeat Books, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99 24.99
George Jones was a country singer with a hell of a voice, and a hell of a lot of ups and downs in his life – a fair bit of issues that were brought on by his lifestyle and upbringing, all of which had an undeniable impact on the emotional strength of his music! Writer Bob Allen chronicles all these many aspects of George's life and career – with historical details that really match the wealth of Jones' deep recorded catalog – and which follow him through early raw sounds on Starday/Mercury, to his mainstream fame on United Artists and Musicor in the 60s, to his emergence as the key singer of heartbreaking songs in the 70s! George's voice changed often over the years, and he always found a way to make the music match – an aspect that Allen really understands as he keeps up with Jones' success and struggles. This new edition includes a postscript – and is 337 pages, softcover, with some black and white images. Book

Fou (France), 1982. New Copy ... $11.99
A hell of a group – one that features four players who are every bit as much sonic experimentalists as they are musicians – coming together here in a perfect setting to allow free interplay between their tones! Each member seems to contribute equally – and there's a warmly collaborative vibe that seems to occur every time that Joelle Leandre is part of a performance – maybe just because of the careful way she contributes her work on bass, but also (we're guessing) that the lady herself can make everyone else feel at home and bring their best work. Derek Bailey plays guitar, George Lewis trombone, and Evan Parker tenor and soprano saxes – and the CD features two sets of improvisations from the concert. CD

A fantastic porn soundtrack from the Canadian scene at the start of the 70s – a wicked little record from the time when even a schlocky movie could be trusted to have some pretty great music in the mix! The styles here echo some of the modes in the Vampyros Lesbos world of Jess Franco films – funky drums, great organ lines, and plenty of trippy guitar – but there's also the added use of harmony vocals on a few cuts, with female singers who give the whole thing a warmly joyous quality, and really sets the whole thing apart from the rest! The record's got a great sense of variety, including some really cool distorted moog on one track – and titles include "Felicia Nova", "Emmene Moi", "Harizap", "Chanson Pour Candy", "Cago 9", "Sans Raison", "Ouvre Ton Ame", and "Je Ne T'Attendrai Pas".

Timeless work by Georgia bluesman Cecil Barfield – material recorded in the mid 70s, issued in the 21st Century – but done with a quality that could go back to the 78rpm generation! Barfield has this amazing vocal style – strongly inflected at times, with this warble that makes for a strong musical element next to his acoustic guitar – almost Malian at times, and very different than any other blues singer we can think of. The recording quality is excellent – clear, clean, and very unadorned – and titles include "Love Blues", "Tell Me Rider", "Captain Had A Bulldog", "Big Legged Woman", "Five Long Years", "Root Blues", and "Talk To Your Daughter".

An unusual album from guitarist George Barnes – a player whose history predates the bebop years, and who comes across here with a razor-sharp sound in a country-based setting! Make no mistake, the album's definitely a jazz one – but George brings up the twang a bit on some of his phrasing, which also includes electric bass and banjo too – and the group features a second rhythm guitar, acoustic bass, and drums – which leaves plenty of room for fantastic interplay on the strings!

A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk track "Ponta De Lanca", plus loads of other goodies like "O Filosofo", "Xica Da Silva", "A Historia De Jorge", and a great remake of "Taj Mahal" – probably his greatest cut ever. Great all the way through – and is a perfect introduction to Jorge Ben if you don't know his work, and an essential addition to your collection if you do! LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 18.98
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! CD

Amazing stuff! Jorge Ben never made a bad record in the 60s – and this is one of his best! The album's filled with tight jaunty numbers that mix big band samba arrangements with quickly strummed guitar, and Jorge's wonderfully raw vocals – all classic stuff for Jorge, but a style that we never tire of! Every track's a winner, and the album glides effortlessly from number to number, grooving along with a stunning mix of instruments, vocals, and this incredible echoey production.

Philips/Verve, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and soul influences that he brought to his first big hits – but recorded here in a way that's maybe even more frenetic, especially when piano lines spin out quickly next to his incredible vocals – with a style that's almost soul jazz at times! The whole thing's wonderful – a record that matches, if not tops any of his other 60s albums – and titles include the killer "A Jovem Samba" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Nascimento De Um Principe Africando", "Menina Gata Augusta", "Si Wanda", "Rosa Mas Que Nada", "Amor De Carnaval", and "Todo Colorida".

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
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".

Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track. CD also features 3 bonus tracks – the previously unreleased "From Now On", and new mixes of "Serbian Blue" and "Take The A Train". CD

George Benson more than earns the title on this one – given that most of the tracks feature backings from the Count Basie Orchestra under the direction of Frank Foster – a great ensemble who really help keep things soulful throughout! Despite the date of the set, the feel here is a bit more classic than most of Benson's work from the time – as the group bring a full acoustic soul to the record – a swelling, swaying brace of horns that seems to push George's vocals a bit more than usual – past that simply sweet style that was the usual Benson bag. There's a range and depth here that's really surprising – a quality that goes past the hokey title, which might make you expect less from the record – and although there's a few brief moments that get slightly contemporary, these pass quickly in favor of a classic groove. Titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Without A Song", "Ready Now That You Are", "Basie's Bag", "Skylark", and "How Do You Keep The Music Playing". CD

Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Warner, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet stepping soul from George Benson – a batch of tracks that wraps up his wonderful vocals and guitar with some great contemporary rhythms! The vibe here is nicely laidback – never too smooth, nor some of the more commercial territory that Benson was trying for a decade before – and in a way, it's almost as if George has been digging some of the less mainstream soul sounds of the time, as he's hitting a sound that would certainly appeal to steppers in Chicago, or the indie soul and smooth jazz scene of the early 90s. Benson's got a great way of scatting lightly with his guitar, and there's a leanness to most of the tracks, despite a relatively full lineup of players. Titles include "I'll Be Good To You", "Got To Be There", "My Heart Is Dancing", "Love Remembers", "Come Into My World", "Somewhere Island", "Calling You", "Lovin On Borrowed Time", and "Love Of My Life".

George sings as much as he plays guitar here – working in a tight combo that's heavy on soul styles – and most tunes are remakes of Nola classics, mixed with some other Chuck Berry songs, done in a more contemporary mode. The set's a fair bit grittier than most of Benson's recent recordings, and also has a tight horn section too – on titles that include "You Can't Catch Me", "Ain't That A Shame", "Blue Monday", "How You've Changed", "Walking To New Orleans", "I Hear You Knocking", and "Havana Moon".

A genius pairing of two top CTI Records talents in the 70s – the sweet guitar of George Benson and the amazing reed talents of Joe Farrell – both players who recorded in very different modes for the label, and who come out here sounding even more different when working together! There's certainly some of the tightness of Benson's records, but also maybe a bit more open flow, too – and Farrell blows flutes and soprano sax, with a quality that's lyrical but powerful – almost bringing a Bobbi Humphrey sort of energy to the tunes at times, amidst these strong soulful arrangements from David Matthews! Yet even Matthews is nicely different – not as all-out R&B-inflected as on his Kudu productions, and nicely laidback – really letting the soloists take off on tunes that include "Old Devil Moon", "Camel Hump", "Flute Song", and "Beyond The Ozone".

A bittersweet set of vocals from Polly Bergen – recorded with a sound that really fits her sad-eyed look on the cover! Although Bergen's voice is sometimes confident and full, it's nicely restrained here – often somewhat dark-toned and moody – in ways that remind us of Morgana King, especially in the way that Polly holds back at just the right moments – keeping things mature by never getting too overly emotive. There's a nice sense of depth to the record that goes way beyond simple pop singing – and Luther Henderson's arrangements further help color the sound of the set – by giving it a sense of unity that almost reminds us of some of Sinatra's best blue-toned late 50s albums for Capitol. Titles include "By Myself", "When The Wind Was Green", "All Alone", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Too Late Now", "He Didn't Call", and "Not Like Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Backing is by a small group, nicely under-produced – and all songs are originals by Borges and Angelo, with titles that include "Rio Da Lua", "Profeta, "No Caminho", "Em Outras Cancoes", "Foto 3 x 4", "Antes Do Tempo", and "Partimos".

Leroy Burgess & Saving CocoWork It Out (voc, dub)/Til I Found You (voc, dub) ... 12-inch
Favorite (France), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Two contemporary cuts from 80s soul master Leroy Burgess – both of them pretty darn fantastic! "Work It Out" features bass-heavy boogie backings by Saving Coco – a group who have this great vibe that hits on the jazzier, more sophisticated side of early 80s club – while Leroy's vocals soar out over the top, and hit a nice breakdown in the middle! "Til I Found You" is a tune that gets production help from Patchworks – with a groove that's slightly more complicated, but still very much right on the money! 12-inch, Vinyl record

George BurtonReciprocity ... CD
George Burton, 2020. New Copy ... $7.99
An album that explodes with life, soul, and energy right from the very first note – a jazz set from keyboardist George Burton, but a record that weaves in lots of different strands along the way – with a sense of imagination that's certain to make Burton's music something to really keep an ear on for years to come! Yet already, this record is more than enough – and grabs us in a way we're not usually grabbed – as George balance his own bold energy on piano and Fender Rhodes with occasional vocals from a female singer, work by Tim Warfield on soprano sax, Chris Hemingway on alto, and Andy Bianco on guitar, and a trio of different drummers who really know when to kick in and propel the album forward! Burton is never content to just lay down a solo, or swing a groove – and there's a larger sonic palette of soul to the record that has to be heard to be understood – yet even the few straighter jazz numbers are pretty amazing too. Imagine the joy you felt when you first heard the early records of Robert Glasper, and you'll get some of the energy this record can deliver – on titles that include "Finding", "Gratitude", "Spirit", "Reciprocity", "Third Prayer", "Finite Space", "Us", "Power", and "Turn".

George CablesCables' Vision ... LP
Contemporary, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
We'd sure like to have Cables' Vision – because by the end of the 70s, he was one of the hippest cats on the California scene! This wonderfully easygoing album from 1979 features Cables on both acoustic and electric – soaring to the sky on some numbers, kicking back on the keys on others – and working with a lineup that includes Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard, Ernie Watts, and Tony Dumas. Includes the great smooth groover "Inner Glow", plus the tracks "The Stroll", "Voodoo Lady", "Morning Song", "I Told You So", and "Byrdlike". LP, Vinyl record album

George CablesI'm All Smiles ... CD
High Note, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A really fluid trio set from pianist George Cables – the kind of record that reminds us all over again how great he really is! The group's an excellent one – with superb work on bass from Essiet Essiet and drums from Victor Lewis – both players who have this instant groove, but without hitting you over the head at all – a perfect balance to match the lyricism that's always inherent in George's piano work! But Cables is highly rhythmic here, too – but again in a subtle way – always blocking, shifting, and building his sound in ways that are deeply individual, and which make these mostly-familiar tunes sound mighty fresh. Titles include "Thermo", "I'm All Smiles", "Celebration", "Speak No Evil", "Besame Mucho", and "Three Views Of A Secret". CD

A much better record than we want to admit, with Natalie moving towards jazzy numbers and standards, for a blockbuster Grammy winning effort. Her voice stands up well to the mainstream polish, and even the creepy "duet" with her father is enjoyable. 22 tracks in all, including "The Very Thought Of You", "Paper Moon", "Mona Lisa", 'This Can't Be Love", "Lush Life", "That Sunday That Summer", "Avalon", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Nature Boy", "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Thous Swell" and "Unforgettable".

George DanquahHot & Jumpy ... LP
QuaMi, 1978. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A world of rhythmic, danceable sounds from George Danquah – the legendary Ghanaian guitarist, composer and bandleader who had earlier played and/or toured with Benya Beats, Blue Monks and Uhuru Dance Band and other brilliant groups – and this rare mid 70s set is the only album billed to Danquah that we've ever been lucky enough to hear! It's amazing stuff and covers broad stylistic terrain while holding together strongly. There's some fairly straight up, yet uniquely arranged Afro Funk & soul, some reggae inspired rhythms, percussion driven gems and strains of highlife. Danquah plays guitar and handles the conducting and arranging, backed by a core of trumpet, tenor sax, organ, bass, drums and conga – with some vocals, wah wah guitar and flute. Includes "Mbesiafo (Part One)", "African Reggae", "Just For A Moment", "Araba Soso Wo Ndzema", "Chain Of Love", "Why Worry – Let's Do 'Highlife'", "Mbesiafo (Part Two – Vocal)", "Mese Medo No" and "Onyame Sane".

DeBargeAll This Love ... CD
Motown, 1982. Used ... $14.99
A stone pop soul winner from DeBarge – the kind of record that made the group a heck of a lot of money back in the 80s, and which sounds surprisingly great to our ears today! The record features lots of electro arrangements – fuzzy keyboards and bass pedals grooving around in a way that's got traces of "street" electro, mixed with some super-smooth LA production, and used brilliantly by the group in a family-based pop harmony way that stretches back to some of the great 70s groups of the same style – like The Sylvers or the Stairsteps. A heck of a lot nicer than we remember, and pretty great all the way through – with tracks that include "I Like It", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", "All This Love", "I'm In Love With You", "Can't Stop", "It's Getting Stronger", and "Life Begins With You".
