Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Sambas Vol 2 ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $18.99
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

BellsBells ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1966. New Copy ... $9.99
The Bells serve up a great blend of garage rock modes and Brazilian elements on this debut album from the 60s – a sweet small combo style that's heavy on swirling organ lines and echoey guitar! As with some of the other jovem guarda groups of the period, these guys lean heavily on influences from America and England – singing songs here by The Beatles, Bobby Darin, and others – but as with the best of this scene, there's also something different special going on too – almost as if the songs are little pop music fantasies of life up north – trying hard, but never getting things entirely right – and therein lies the charm! Titles include "Capri C'Est Fini", "Girl", "O Muro Do Berlim", "Bittersweet Samba", "Don't Bother Me", "Do The Dive", "This Diamond Ring", and "Jailor Bring Me Water". CD

Black JuniorsBlack Juniors ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
A real obscurity from the Brazilian scene of the 80s – an album by a group who must have been one of the first hip hop acts to cut a record down there – working in a tight mix of old school styles and electro funk modes! There's more of a street soul approach overall – as although the record does have some great beats, rhymes, and scratching – there's also some sung vocals as well, mixed up nicely, almost with modes that reflect that second wave on the New York scene, when barriers were breaking down a bit between MCs and singers. Titles include "Break Nas Ruas", "Miss Brasil", "Mas Que Linda Estas", "Hey Disc Jockey", "Super Sexy", and "Quero Ver Voce Mexer". CD

Luiz Chaves E Seu ConjuntoProjecao (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RGE/Bomba (Japan), 1963. Used ... $14.99
Bossa jazz doesn't get any better than this! The album's a rare little gem led by bassist Luiz Chaves – recorded in 1963, with a swinging mix of jazzy styles, and instrumentation that includes piano, guitar, tenor sax, alto, trumpet, and a slight bit of guitar. The group grooves with a rhythmic pulse that's strong throughout – Chaves leading the whole combo with some great bass work, and solo instruments breaking out from the pack in soaring, leaping lines! The whole thing's great – with nary a dull moment – and the album's the kind of classic bossa session we can't recommend highly enough! Titles include "Tormenta", "Heloisa", "Estamos Ai", "Telefone", "Miss Balanco", "Tim Dom Dom", and "Influencia Do Jazz". CD

Paulinho Da Viola & Elton MedeirosSamba Na Madrugada (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RGE/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Spare and jazzy samba work from the team of Paulinho Da Viola and Elton Medeiros – a beautiful illustration of the genre at its simple best – carried off with no pretension and a wonderful sense of grace! Instrumentation is heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – and also includes bits of flute or trombone – all used lightly, but to provide some jazzier inflections over the top of the vocals – in a way that keeps the tunes dancing along lightly and beautifully. Elton and Paulinho alternate vocals from track to track – and sometimes do so on the same tracks, but in medley-styled format. Titles include "14 Anos", "Arvoredo", "Sofreguidao", "Perfeito Amor", "Minha Confissao", "Depois De Tanto Amor", and "Samba Original". LP, Vinyl record album

Djalma DiasDestaque ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
Wicked samba from Djalma Dias – served up with a nice undercurrent of soul on a few tracks, too! 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".

GalaxiesGalaxies ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $10.99
A cool Brazilian quartet with a very groovy sound – one gal and three guys, and a group who aren't afraid to show their love of American music! Most tunes here are sung in English, and are covers of work by Anglo groups of the time – including two especially sublime takes on tunes by Love, which are completely transformed in this setting – but in a really wonderful way! The production is lean, with a garagey quality to most of the instrumentation – and the group sometimes harmonize, but often have a single singer in the lead – which makes for a nice sense of variety in the songs. Love tunes include "Que Vida" and "Orange Skies" – and other songs include "Hey", "Mellow Yellow", "Farmer John", "Slow Down Baby", "Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover", "Ain't Gonna Lie", and "I'm Not Talking".

Prini LorenzPrini Lorenz ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $6.99
A romping little record from the Jovem Guarda years in Brazil – a time when that country was strongly embracing American rock in all its 60s styles – and turning out groovy little records like this! Prini Lorenz works before a live crowd here – in this mix of mod elements that almost feels a lot like some of the bigger Sunset Strip live dates from the same time – particularly with the upbeat vibe of albums by Trini Lopez or Johnny Rivers! But there's also a sound here that's a lot cooler than both of their work – maybe because Prini's got this cool sort of accent on his English language vocals – but also because the combo is pretty lively throughout, and seems to turn all sorts of different tunes into upbeat stompers. Titles include "Like A Baby", "Cielito Lindo", "La Bamba", "Lonesome Traveler", "America", "Gotta Travel On", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand". CD

✨✧ MiltinhoEu Miltinho ... LP
RGE (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a way, this album is kind of a turning point in Miltinho's career – as he makes the shift towards some of the bossa-inspired styles he'd pick up more strongly in later years. Arrangements are by Ruben Perez and Nelsinho – and titles include "Caminho Perdido", "Samba Do Crioulo", "E Amanha", "Samba Sem Pim Pom", "Ze De Conceicao", "Serenata Da Chuva", "Faco Um Lelele", and "Cancao De Amor".

Vinicius De Moraes with Toquinho & Marilia MedalhaComo Dizia O Poeta ... LP
RGE (Brazil), 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the greatest 70s collaborations between Vinicius De Moraes and Toquinho – and a record that's made even nicer by vocals from co-composer Marilia Medalha! Arrangements here are full and lofty – still driven with some of the lighter bossa rhythms of the pair's other albums, but given a bit more cohesion through the efforts of arranger Jose Briamonte – who kind of takes the whole thing to the next level, and gives the record the grander feel of earlier records on labels like Forma or Elenco, which are clearly the inspiration for this one! Titles include "Como Dizia O Poeta", "Tarde Em Itapoan", "Tomara", "Samba de Gesse", and "Samba da Rosa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paulinho NogueiraUm Festival De Violao ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
A one-man guitar festival from the great Paulinho Nogueira – captured here in one of his later albums from the 60s, with an even richer, more sophisticated sound than before! Nogueira's skills on the strings is amazing – very different than a simple rhythmic or melodic pulse, with all these complicated shifts and unusual phrasing as he makes his way through the tunes – sometimes with fuller backings that shade things in with a bit of darkness, sometimes with lighter, more lyrical instrumentation that might include a bit of percussion or flute. There's just a touch of vocals on the record, but the main focus is the guitar – on titles that include "Malaguena", "O Cantador", "Here There & Everywhere", "Preludio No 20", "Historia De Uma Ciranca", "Lua Cheia", "Ouvi Tua Voz", and a version of the Marcos Valle tune "Viola Enluarada".

A set that's definitely the funk festival promised in the title – but one that's also served up in an 80s-styled mode! Almir Ricardi sings in a soulful style, amidst lots of basslines and keyboards set up by Lincoln Olivetti and Robson Jorge – both Brazilian musicians with plenty of background in the groovier side of the spectrum – and who do a great job of setting up Almir in these midtempo electric funk grooves that owe a fair bit to American work by Zapp or Kleeer! The style is great – and an especially cool mix with the Portuguese lyrics – and titles include "Sao Paulo High Society", "Festa Funk", "Super Man", "Pura", "Raca", "Rebola Bola", and "To Parado Na Tua".

Trio MocotoTrio Mocoto (1973) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RGE/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Easily the greatest album ever from Trio Mocoto – and one of the key sides of the 70s Samba Soul generation! The group are perhaps best known for their work with Jorge Ben, but they really come into their own on this set – grooving up a mix of funk, samba, and plenty of soul – all delivered with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a varied mix of instrumentation that includes searing Hammond organ, choppy guitar, and nicely blasting horns. Arrangements are by Rogerio Duprat, Waldemiro Lemke, and others – and the album's filled with choppy groovers that still stand as some of the funkiest samba tracks from the time! Titles include "Desapareca", "Maior E Deus", "Samba Da Preguica", "Vem Sa", "Recordar", "Palomares", "Swinga Sambaby", and "Gotas De Chuva Na Minha Cuica". LP, Vinyl record album

The Solovox organ sounds mighty great here – very different than 60s Hammond, and even the up-and-coming Lowrey – as Brazilian keyboardist Ubirajara plays the instrument with all sorts of sounds and effects, but all without ever losing the groove of the tunes! Ubirajara almost has the tonal range of Korla Pandit back in the US – and maybe some of the otherworldly qualities in his music too – but his approach is tighter, groovier, and often set to rhythms that move between samba and Latin modes, which really keep things moving forward in a very cool way! Titles include "Marta", "La Golondrina", "Filme Triste", "Poema Do Olhar", "El Reloj", and "Abraca Me". CD

A Brazilian singer with a hell of a voice – the lovely Helena De Lima, whose vocal range really fits the lush moods of the tunes on the set! Things are in a more melancholy look than you'd guess from Helena's look on the cover – a nice sort of blueness that's never too overdone, and which has a good balance between the lead vocals and the woodwinds and strings used in the backings. Arrangements are by Ruben Pocho Peren – an overlooked sophisticated talent – and titles include "So So So", "Fio De Cancao", "Flor Da Noite", "Cravo Vermelho", "Balada De Saudade", "Vai", "Pierrot", "Por Onde Eu Vou", and "Boa Noite Rio".

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".

Wonderfully weird bossa organ from the lesser-known Ely Arcoverde – a record that stands in nice contrast to better-known 60s Brazilian organ sessions from Walter Wanderley and Ed Lincoln! The rhythms are often in a samba mode – arranged by Waldemiro Lemke – but Ely's got a way of playing the organ that often makes the notes come out sideways – kind of watery and fluttery, with a really unique quality that shows up especially on the solos – where it feels like the organ is almost singing! Most numbers feature some sort of horn in the group – giving the tunes a good little punch – and titles include "Ta Hi", "Carinhoso", "Fechei A Porta", "Favela", "Marina", "Rosa Morena", "Helena Helena", and "Eu Nao Tenho Onde Morar".

RGE/Audio Clarity (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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!

Paulinho Nogueira has a chromatic sound to his instrument – as his guitar lines cascade out gently in these little flowers of color that really illuminate the record – given only a bit of direction by light percussion on most of the tracks – which keeps things in moody territory that's somewhere in the territory or bossa or samba, but with some nice surprises along the way. No vocals at all – and titles include "Menina Moca", "Violao No Samba", "Brigas Nunca Mais", "Fita Amarela", "Noite Cheia De Estrelas", "Saudade Querida", and "Promessa". CD

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".

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

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

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".

Side two features "modinhas" – mellower, darker songs that often mix some melancholy strings with guitar, conducted by Simonetti.

Helena's got a depth to her voice, but never pushes things too much – and the light arrangements from Pocho Perez and Nelsinho often seem to hang just a bit in the background, which leaves De Lima majestically out front – on titles that include "De Agosto A Setembro", "Vem Outra Vez", "Amamha Voce Dira", "Vestida De Adeus", "Saudade Diferente", "Perdoa Meu Bem", "Cancao De Amor", "Ainda Bem", and "Pergunte A Voce".

There's more moods here going on than usual for a record of this time from early 60s Brazil – definitely some of the bluer tunes that a singer like Elza can do so well – but also some moments with male harmony singers, a bossa tune or two, and some other numbers that have surprising instrumentation next to the vocals! Titles include "Cuidado Cuidado", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Tome Continha De Voce", "Conversa", "Um Minuto So", "Porque", "Quanto Te Achai", and "Estou Amando Azul". CD

There's often a bit of accordion or woodwind in the lead – echoing the same blue-tinged lines from a jauntier choro tune, but slowed down a lot more here, and set to a bit of strings – with a mood that's a lot more late nite than the image on the cover.

An overlooked gem from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – the only record we've ever seen from Beto Scala, but one that we've treasured for years! Beto's a samba singer at heart, but he also works here with some warmer soulful touches that are really great – not a slick or commercial style, but just this nicely expansive take on the music – served up on a host of his original tunes, which get great arrangements from Ze Roberto! There's jazzy currents at times on the instrumentation, which is a mix of electric elements and percussion – and Beto's lead vocals are wonderful – warmly compelling, with the sense of presence and character that matches some of the bigger Brazilian artists of the time. Titles include "Tem Pena", "Na Face E Na Pena", "Amor De Mulher", "Loucura", "Qualquer Hora E Hora", and "Tem Que Ser Agora". CD

✨✧ Silvery BoysDe Com Forca – Pra Frente ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Silvery Boys have a groove that's as shimmering as their name – a unique blend of organ, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, and trombone – the last of two which come as a nice surprise – as they glide through the other instrumentation, and bring a slightly different vibe to this garagey little set! The approach is almost like some of the work from the Texas scene around the same time – especially the way that the organ bubbles with the guitar – but there's also a distinctly Brazilian approach to the vocals and the way they come across – especially when the group sing together, in a mode that's a bit like their contemporaries The Golden Boys. (Hmmm . . . Was that the reason for the Silvery Boys name?) Most tunes are originals – and titles include "Voce E De Chorar", "Coracao De Papel", "O Paquera", "Depois De Voce Ninguem", "Nao Valo De Amor", and "Tagarela". CD

Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Alberto Baldan Bembo isn't the biggest name on the Italian scene – but he's forever been remembered for this totally groovy album from the 70s – the kind of record that really matches the highest standards of the time! Bembo has this way of mixing floating instrumental currents with deeper rhythmic grooves – sometimes upbeat, but often more comfortable in a slower funk mode – which perfectly fits the blend of sweeping strings, keyboards, and wordless vocals that sometimes grace the tunes – all served up in modes that are never too electric, never too acoustic – just perfectly balanced throughout! Titles include "Tema Di Nadia", "Samoa", "Sweet Oasi", "Green Sea", "Mubu", "Love In Sahara", "Savana", and "Oblo". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
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

Warner (Brazil), 1963/Late 80s/1990s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
2CDs worth of work by Jorge Ben – featuring hits from the Warner years on one CD, plus a whole CD worth of rare material! The hits are all from the 90s – and include "Pega Ela De Montao", "Dzarm" (in 2 mixes), "Alcohol", "W Brasil", "Salve Simpatia", "Norma Jean", and some live recordings of older titles like "Filho Maravilha" and "Pais Tropical". The rare stuff is more interesting, though, and the second CD features 14 hard to find tunes – including 2 early cuts from 1963 that feature Jorge singing with the organ group of Ze Maria – plus "Eu Quero Ver A Rainha", a duet with Tim Maia, "Norma Jean", done in a house mix and extended piano mix, "Pais Tropical", in a sax mix, "Dzarm", done acoustically and in a horn dub, "Alcohol", done in a playground mix, and the track "Roberta Corta Essa".

Weird and wonderful sounds from the enigmatic John Bender – a record that seems to beat the darkest of the cold wave generation at their own game! Don't think of the record as "pop surgery", so much as it is a complete dismantling of all the best electro elements of the period – as if someone took all the early electronic pop singles from the UK scene, stripped them down to their spare parts, then only did a half-hearted job of putting them back together! The result is a set of really dark-yet-catchy cuts that are even moodier and more enigmatic than some of the farther reaches of the Sheffield scene. LP, Vinyl record album

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.

✨✧ George BensonBenson Burner ... CD
CBS (Holland), Late 60s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A great 2CD set (originally a double LP set) that features some of the best early groovers from George Benson – cut for Columbia back in the late 60s – when George was fresh out of Jack McDuff's classic combo and grooving on his own with the help of organist Lonnie Smith! These tracks have gotten pretty hard to find over the years, which makes the set even more essential than it was a couple decade ago! Most numbers have a burningly raw organ/guitar groove – much different and a lot more soulful than most of the other jazz on Columbia at the time. Benson's core quartet also features Ronnie Cuber and Jimmy Lovelace – and a great lineup of additional players on the tracks includes Al Michelle, Melvin Sparks, Howard Johnson, Pucho, King Curtis and Blue Mitchell. Tracks include "Benson's Rider", "Clabber Biscuits", "Chicken Giblets", "Mama Wailer", "Hammond's Bossa Nova", "Peg-Leg Jack", "Jaguar", "Keep Talkin", and "Slow Scene". 27 tracks on 2CDs! CD

A sweet 70s collection of late 60s work from George Benson – tracks recorded in 1968 for Verve, originally from the albums Giblet Gravy and Goodies! The set list here really does a great job of picking out the best numbers – the kind of clean, lean tunes that were pushing Benson from his soul jazz roots towards a much bigger audience – yet still without any of the commerciality of later years to come. Players on the tracks include Herbie Hancock on piano, Billy Cobham on drums, Ron Carter on bass, and Johnny Pacheco on percussion – and arrangements are by Horace Ott and Tom McIntosh. Titles include "Billie's Bounce", "Low Down & Dirty", "Thunder Walk", "Doobie Doobie Blues", "What's New", and "I Remember Wes". LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonBody Talk ... CD
CTI/Vocalion (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet funky classic from guitar genius George Benson – and a record that features some surprising soul arrangements from Pee Wee Ellis – also known for his classic work with the James Brown Band of the late 60s! Pee Wee's got a tighter groove here than on some of George's earlier CTI albums – but still keeps things open enough, so that Benson gets plenty of room to solo – a bit like the vibe of some of his late 60s albums for Verve and A&M. George is the main soloist – but the group is super-hip, with Harold Mabern on electric piano, Frank Foster on tenor, and a little bit of extra guitar from Earl Klugh. George is pulling no punches on this one – really hitting hard on his solos with a freer approach than he used on most of his other records from the time. Titles include "Dance", "Plum", "Body Talk", and "Top Of The World" – and most tracks are looong! CD

CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
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".

Unusual work from the great George Benson – a wonderful session that was recorded by CTI during George's classic years for the label – but issued only briefly a number of years later, and slightly lost amongst the rest of his catalog! The material's great, though – and has George in top form for the sweet 70s funk years – working with arrangements by Ronnie Foster and David Matthews – on tunes that also include keyboards by Foster and Bobby Lyle, trombone from Fred Wesley, saxes from David Sanborn, Joe Farrell, Michael Brecker, and Ronnie Cuber – and even a bit of additional guitar from Eric Gale! There's a nice mix of modes here – some tight funky cuts, some more flowing numbers, and even one more traditional jazz tune with a great vocal by George – on the classic "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include "Melodia Espanol", "Pacific Fire", "Em", "Bandoleros Caballa", "Let Your Love Come Out", and "Knock On Wood". CD

CTI, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $5.99
An unusual assortment of work from the great George Benson – pulled together from other sessions for CTI Records – featuring one studio track, and four more live numbers! The studio tune is George's take on the Stax Records classic "Hold On I'm Coming" – which Benson sings with almost as much vocal intensity on his own as Sam & Dave brought to the original – followed by a tight solo that really matches the funky 70s vibe of the arrangements. Next are four more tracks from the Carnegie Hall sessions – one of his hardest-hitting albums of the time! In a way, the record returns George to his early years at CTI – particularly the album Beyond The Blue Horizon – as the set's got a stripped down smaller group, working in a tight blend of electric jazzy bits that's very nice! Ronnie Foster lays down some great keyboards on the set, Hubert Laws is on flute, and George himself plays a hollow body with a nice soulful tone – stretching out on some straight jazz on most cuts, but also hitting a few of his smoother notes from the mid 70s. Titles include "Sky Dive", "Octane", "Summertime", and "Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

An early George Benson groover from the A&M years of CTI – a set that's quite different than his famous 70s sets, with a really unique sound overall! The arrangements here are by Latin Soul maestro Marty Sheller – who brings some of the vibe to the set that he brought to his 60s work with Mongo Santamaria – not a straight Latin sound overall, but one that comes through strongly in some of the percussion and horns! Players are all pretty hip – and keyboards are from Richard Tee on most of the best tracks – and drums are from Idris Muhammad throughout, working here under his original name of Leo Morris. Main solos are from Benson on guitar – although the record also features alto solos from Sonny Fortune and Bobby Porcelli – who'd both stepped out a bit with Santamaria too. Titles include "Water Brother", "Jama Joe", "Dontcha Hear Me Callin' To Ya", "Jackie All", "Soul Limbo", "Are You Happy", "Land Of 1000 Dances", and "Out in the Cold Again". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Lo BorgesLo Borges (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An incredible album from Lo Borges – one of the best singer/songwriters on the Brazilian scene of the 70s! Borges first burst into the spotlight for his work on the Club Da Esquina album by Milton Nascimento – and his work as part of Milton's "corner club" really helped shape the style of the more famous singer. Yet Borges is almost an equally great talent on his own – with a soaring, soulful approach that's every bit as great as the best Nascimento material from the period – and recorded in a wonderfully similar spirit! The sound here is completely sublime right from the start – music that moves us, even if we can't understand the language of the lyrics – like some of the best work by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. There's maybe a bit more guitar than on some of the Milton Nascimento work of the period – but used in a fuzzy way that slides in nicely with some of the jazzy phrasing of the instrumentation – which is delivered with help from key contemporaries who include Beto Guedes, Nelson Angelo, Toninho Horta, and Tenorio Jr. The songwriting is amazing – and titles include "Cancao Postal", "Voce Fica Melhor Assim", "Nao Foi Nada", "Calibre", "Faca Seu Jogo", "Toda Essa Agua", "Pensa Voce", "Como O Machando", and "Aos Baroes".

Blue Note (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... About July 17, 2019
A masterpiece from George Braith – one of the most unique sax players of the 60s! The album's a Blue Note classic in the Larry Young vein – with lots of free spiralling modal lines, and heavenly solos on organ, guitar, and reeds – the former of which are played by Billy Gardner and Grant Green. Braith's playing is incredible – slightly exotic, but also quite soulful – in a vein that recalls Yusef Lateef and Roland Kirk, but which also has a strong voice of its own. Braith plays tenor, soprano, and alto sax on the set – and the album is filled with groovy modal tracks like "Nut City", "Sweetville", and "Extension". Very very nice! CD

Jack Bongo BurgerEnd On Bongos ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A sweet set from that great record moment when Latin styles were coming into play with the hipper sounds of the bachelor pad world! Jack "Bongo" Burger was a west coast percussionist with a very similar style to Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – and in fact, since they're both named Jack, and have a bongo middle name, we always wonder whether or not they're the same person! Whatever the case, this album's a tasty batch of bongo-heavy tracks – with a style that's similar to some of Costanzo's work on Liberty, although perhaps with slightly less of a Latin bent. The group includes Buddy Collette on flute and sax, plus piano, trumpet, electric bass, and some nice odd percussion. Kind of like a combo of some of Collette's jazz work, and the exotic stuff that was also appearing on the Hi Fi label. Tracks include "Jordu", "China Nights Mambo", "Negre Setin", "Chiu Chiu", and "Mambo Burger". LP, Vinyl record album

An insane collection of work from the great Sonny Burgess – easily one of the rawest artists to ever record for the legendary Sun Records – and that's saying a lot, given his late 50s contemporaries on the label! Sonny's not just wild from a rockabilly perspective, he also feels like he's just completely wild from a personal one – steeped in equal influences from country and R&B, and wound up and let go here in the studio – often with vocals that feel as if they're ready to blow the speakers off the wall in the legendary studio of Sam Phillips! In order to show the full genius that went into these tracks, the set also features some unusual false starts and undubbed versions too – along with a very big booklet of notes that has all the details on the sessions behind these gems. Titles include "We Wanna Boogie", "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", "Sweet Misery", "Oh Mama", "Truckin Down The Avenue", "Find My Baby For Me", "Mr Blues", "Feelin Good", "Always Will", "Please Listen To Me", "Daddy Blues", "Fannie Brown", "Life's Too Short To Live", "Red Headed Woman", "The Prisoner's Song", "Thunderbird", "Itchy", "Mama Loochie", "A Kiss Goodnite", "Smoochin Jill", "My Baby Loves Me", "Sadie's Back In Town", and "You're Not The One For Me". 57 tracks in all!

Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessel, Herb EllisGreat Guitars At Charlie's Georgetown ... LP
Concord, 1983. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A live set that follows the great format first set out by the trio of guitarists Charlie Byrd, Barney Kessel, and Herb Ellis – a pretty airy approach to jazz guitar swinging that also features a bit of bass from Joe Byrd and some drums from Chuck Redd! As before, the approach seems to work best on older swing-styled numbers – letting one guitar play rhythm while another solos strongly – on titles that include "Where Or When", "New Orleans", "Change Partners", "Opus One", "Get Happy", and "Danielle".

George CablesGeorge Cables Songbook ... CD
High Note, 2016. Used ... $11.99
George Cables looks incredibly young on the cover of this album – and his music sounds quite young, too – as if we've just discovered the pianist as a new player, with a sense of surprise that wins us all over again! The core trio on the record is great enough – with Essiet Essiet on bass and Victor Lewis on drums – a combo that help Cables hit this wonderful flow on part of the set – but then things really open up once other artists join in – including Craig Handy, who blows tenor or flute on four tracks – and the fantastic singer Sarah Elizabeth Charles, whose performances on six of the album's tracks almost remind us of the magic that Carmen Lundy brought to music with her brother Curtis! Charles is a fantastic singer, and her work on George's tunes here just brings in a whole new dimension to his music – the kind of collaborative association that makes jazz such a wonderful art form in the first place. Titles include "The Dark The Light", "Traveling Lady", "Baby Steps", "Think On Me", "Face The Consequences", "The Mystery Of Monifa Brown", and "For Honey Lulu". CD

George CablesI'm All Smiles ... CD
High Note, 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 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

Serge ChaloffBlue Serge/Boston Blow Up ... CD
Definitive (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $12.99
Two classic Capitol albums by Serge Chaloff on one CD – both of them great together! Blue Serge is a classic Capitol jazz session, and one that pairs Boston baritone player Serge Chaloff with an LA rhythm section that has Sonny Clark on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The album's a perfect example of Chaloff's legendary (and short-lived) talents on the baritone – and listening to it, you'll hear how Chaloff was one of the few players ever to get such a rich tone and fluid style out of the instrument. Titles include "How About You?", "Handful Of Stars", "The Goof & I", "Susie's Blues", and "All The Things You Are". Boston Blow Up is one of a number produced by Stan Kenton for Capitol at the time, but it's far from the cooler jazz outings of other "Kenton Presents" sessions – a real Boston Blow up that has Serge standing starkly out front on the baritone, hitting some tremendous notes that show a command and dexterity on his instrument that few other players could match! Also noteworthy is the presence of the great Boots Mussulli on alto sax – a sharp-edge player with a lot of Charlie Mariano touches, and an artist who's rarely heard in a setting so stripped-down as this. Other artists include Herb Pomeroy on trumpet, Ray Santisi on piano, and Jimmy Zitano on drums – and titles include the original numbers "Kip", "Unison", "Bob The Robin", and "Sergical" – plus versions of "What's New", "Yesterday's Gardenias", and Jaki Byard's "Diane's Melody".

George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

✨✧ George ClintonSome Of My Best Jokes Are Friends ... LP
Capitol, 1985. Near Mint- ... $7.99
While little of Clinton's work under his own name in the 80s compares favorably with the best of the Parliament-Funkadelic years, it's still fairly solid compared to a lot of the other commercial R&B dreck that was being peddled at the time. With the sort of fat bass, loads of synthesized keyboards and brittle drum machine sounds that were stock in trade during that era, but an undeniable groove running throughout most of the tunes, like "Double Oh Oh", "Bulletproof", "Bodyguard" and "Some Of My Best Jokes Are Friends".

George ClintonYou Should't Nuf Bit Fish ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Great solo work from George Clinton – but a set that's still done in the best late 70s modes of Parliament and Funkadelic! Clinton's clearly more comfortable in the lead here – that new spotlight presence he adopted on the Computer Games album – but he also draws heavily on the sound of the whole ensemble, who refine their P-Funk approach with some slight 80s modes – still showing that although George influenced so many other funk acts during these years, he can still craft a groove better than anyone else! Tracks are nice and long, and filled with Clinton's strong sense of humor – and titles include "Nubian Nut", "Last Dance", "Quickie", "Stingy", "Silly Millameter", and "You Shouldn't Nuf Bit Fish".

✨✧ George Clinton & The P-Funk All StarsTAPOAFOM ... CD
Sony, 1996. Used ... $1.99
We have to be honest, by this point we'd all but given up on George. But the truth is, Clinton and crew have pulled off a decent job of turning the tables on the whole G-funk scene, and taking a page or two out of their book, after they'd done the same to him for years! While we'd never claim this is best work, it's held up a fair bit better to the test of time than you might imagine! With "If Anybody's Gonna Get Funked Up (It's Gonna Be You)", "New Spaceship", "Flatman & Bobbin", "Sloppy Seconds", "Rock The Party" and "Get Your Funk On". CD

Natalie ColeUnforgettable With Love ... LP
Elektra, 1991. Near Mint- 2LP ... $44.99
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".
