Ely ArcoverdeBalanco Balanco Balanco ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $18.99
An amazing session of bossa organ grooves – and one of the few rare 60s sessions by keyboardist Ely Arcoverde! The record's done in a style that's similar to Ed Lincoln or Walter Wanderley's albums from the time – clean organ lines dancing over tight samba and bossa percussion – played by a small combo with a really driving edge that seems to set the organ notes on fire! But even better is a small vocal group that harmonizes with most of the tunes – mixing male and female voices with cascading lines that share a lot in common with Tamba Trio or Os Cariocas! The sound is really unique, and completely wonderful – dreamy 60s bossa at its best, carried out perfectly from start to finish! Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Sambao", "Sambossa", "Amanhecendo", "Telefone", "Vagamente", "Coalhada", and "Negro". CD

Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Boleros ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $18.99
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 ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

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

Luiz BandeiraNas Madrugadas Do Rio ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1966. New Copy ... $18.99
A very cool set from the Brazilian scene of the 60s – one that combines an earlier male vocal mode with some of the organ-driven samba of the time – all with results that are pretty darn sweet! 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! Titles include "Ta Tudo Ai", "Despedida", "Ja Vou", "Ronda Das Sombras", "Ja Vou", and "Eu Nao Peco Outra Vez". CD

Black JuniorsBlack Juniors ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1984. Used ... $6.99
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

Djalma DiasDestaque ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Jorginho Do ImperioJorginho Do Imperio (1987) ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1987. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Waldecir LimaRevelacao ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Prini LorenzPrini Lorenz ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $1.99
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

Luiz Loy QuintetoLuiz Loy Quinteto ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1966. New Copy ... $18.99
A really wonderful album from this hip Brazilian 60s combo – one of the best groups to record in a samba jazz mode, even though they only gave us a handful of records at the time! The quintet is led by pianist Luiz Loy, who moves the group through rhythms that are maybe in the Zimbo Trio or Tamba Trio mode – but topped with excellent work on horns, including tenor and flute from Mazola, and trumpet from Papudinho – both players who sparkle out over the top, and move the whole thing past the usual bossa trio mode. The set includes a great version of "Upa Neguinho" – plus "Brinquendo Um", "Estamos Ai", "Clichet", "Nosso Amor Existe", "Tristeza Que Se Foi", and "Deixa Pra La". CD

MaysaCanta Sucessos ... LP
RGE (Brazil), 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
A mix of samba numbers and more romantic tunes from Maysa – all recorded in that classic style she used for sides like this with the RGE label! The instrumentation's nicely light on some of the samba numbers – with hints of bossa scoring at points, and mixing that has Maysa's vocals right up front on most tracks. Mellower numbers have a bit fuller backings – some strings, but never used too strongly – and overall, the whole thing's still light years from US or European pop at the time, with an understated beauty that's really wonderful! Titles include "O Menino Desce O Morro", "Ri Samba", "Noite Chuvosa", "O Amor E A Rosa", "Estou Pensando Em Ti", "Um Novo Ceu", and "Diplomacia". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Os BrazoesOs Brazoes ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A tripped-out batch of tracks from Brazil! These guys mix together a bit of funk, a bit of psych, and touches of Jorge Ben-like soul – into a blend that's really groovy all the way through, and which will be sure to please any fan of the Samba Soul groove! Jorge Ben's influence is all over the set – filtered through some garagey production that makes the tracks sound rawer than any of Ben's own work, and which give the guitars a nice fuzzed out edge. The whole thing's almost psychedelic at times, but has a fair bit of soul as well – and titles include "Gotham City", "Que Maravilha", "Carolina, Carol Bela", "Modulo Lunar", "Volkswagen Blue", "Feitico", "Espiral", and "Momento B/8".

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".

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

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... LP
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 21.98
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Rosana ToledoA Voz Do Amor ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy ... $18.99
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

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".

RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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".

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

Brazilian keyboardist Ubirajara plays an instrument few folks could ever make sound this groovy – the lean Solovox electric piano – whose fuzzy sounds soar out over some really great larger arrangements! 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

Unusual organ lines, mixed with some great Brazilian rhythms – all at a level that's a bit unlike anything else we've ever heard! As on his other 60s records, Ubirajara plays the tiny Solovox – a very small keyboard that maybe has the tonal range of an accordion, but the guts of an electric organ – so that there's this unique compressed vibe to the whole thing, as the leader solos in strange, almost other-worldly ways – over rhythms provided by maestro Hector Laguna Fietta! Tunes are a mix of samba and pop, mostly instrumental save for a few choral passages – and titles include "Blue Star", "Rhythm Of The Rain", "Sabra Dios", "Cara De Pau", "Bigorrilho", "Encandenados", and "Vola Colomba".

The Solovox is a mighty cool keyboard – kind of a smaller version of an electric organ, with a really otherworldly sound – and it gets a great showcase here in a hip album of 60s instrumentals from Brazil! 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".

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

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!

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".

✨✧ Chico BuarqueChico Buarque De Hollanda Vol 2 ... LP
RGE (Brazil), 1967. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Pure genius from a young Chico Buarque – simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a greater level of sophistication that predates the growth of the MPB generation during the 70s – a sound that blends in some larger backings and airy production, all for a sound that's completely heavenly! Titles include "Noite Dos Mascarados", "A Televisao", "Fica", "Com Acucar, Com Afeto", "Logo Eu?", "Ano Novo", "Realejo", and "Um Chorinho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

Nothing too "Romantica" about this set – as the album's got lively samba grooves, with a mix of organ, melodica, and other keyboards – often touched with some great harmony vocals too! The whole thing feels like one of those early 60s bossa/samba jazz sets on RGE – very cool overall! LP, Vinyl record album

Aleem featuring Leroy BurgessShock ... LP
Atlantic, 1987. Very Good ... $1.99
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. Titles include "Searchin", "Love Shock", "Jackpot", "Sweet Treat", "Lonely Tears", "Burn It Up", and "Genuine Love Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob AllenGeorge Jones – The Life & Times Of A Honky Tonk Legend – Updated Edition ... Book
Backbeat Books, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 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

One of the standout moments in the career of Rod Argent – a record that gave his self-named group one of their biggest hits ever, yet a set that still kept all the depth and diversity of their other records too! The album starts out with the group's famous "Hold Your Head Up" – the anthemic strutter that crossed over big, and which burns here with plenty of great organ lines from Rod. Other numbers really mix things up – rocking harder than Rod's Zombies work, but also showing some complicated sensibilities too – brought out nicely by co-producer Chris White, who also wrote most of the songs on the date with Argent. Titles include "Pure Love", "He's A Dynamo", "Hold Your Head Up", "Be My Lover Be My Friend", "Keep On Rolling", and "I Am The Dances Of Ages". LP, Vinyl record album

The second album by Argent – Rod Argent's project immediately after the breakup of the Zombies! There's plenty of Zombie-like ideas here – particularly those floating around the Odyssey and Oracle album, but they're also done without the dreamy pop style of Colin Blunstone's vocals, which makes for a much harder sound overall. Added into that the guitar of Russ Ballard, which really kicks into the tunes nicely, and you've got some great rock and roll work – written with a pop sensibility, but played with a razor-sharp edge that's pretty hard hitting. Titles include "Lothlorien", "Rejoice", "Pleasure", "Sweet Mary", "Where Are We Going Wrong", "Rejoice", "Cast Your Spell Uranus", and "Celebration". LP, Vinyl record album

Tresor National (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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".

Jorge BenBen ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $9.99
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".

Philips/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used ... $9.99
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

One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

One of the few albums by Jorge Ben that was issued in America – a mid-70s set that brings together some of the best work he recorded for Philips Records in Brazil in the late 60s and early 70s! The work here is the stuff of legend – sounds that effortlessly blend samba and soul, all without ever sounding forced – and with an undeniably infectious groove that comes through strongly in Jorge's fantastic presentation of the material! His vocals are amazing – the kind that really grab you, even if you don't understand the language – and the rhythms are full of rootsy percussion and riffing acoustic guitar – plus some basslines that are very unique, and really drive the tunes. The whole thing's wonderful – every track is a killer – and titles include "Ze Cangica", "O Circo Chegado", "Morre O Burro Fica O Homem", "Paz E Arroz", "Oba, La Vem Ela", "Apareceu Aparecida", "Oba La Vem Ela", and "Errare Humanum Est".

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".

The whole album's tight, lively, and soulful – and tracks include a madly percussive take on "Taj Mahal", plus "Pais Tropical", "Chegandos Os Alquimistas", "Chove Chuva", "My Lady", "Mas Que Nada", and "Jesus De Praga".

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.

A 2LP set that features some great 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 on vinyl over the years, which makes the set even more essential than it was a decade ago, when you could still find it easily in the cutout bins. Most numbers have a great raw organ/guitar groove – much different and a lot more soulful than most of the other jazz on Columbia at the time. Tracks include "Benson's Rider", "Clabber Biscuits", "Chicken Giblets", "Mama Wailer", "Hammond's Bossa Nova", "Peg Leg Jack", "Jaguar", "Keep Talkin", and "Slow Scene". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Warner, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

Great work from Polly Bergen – breathy and beautiful, but still plenty lively throughout – thanks to some backings from Jerry Fielding!

Many titles are familiar, but they're recast in arrangements that have a slightly groovier 60s mode – one that further helps enforce the sound of the set!

An obscure record from German vibist Karl Berger – and a great one! The set's a lot hipper than some of his "try to be hip, kind of try too hard" records for other labels – and was recorded in New York with a group that includes Carlos Ward on alto and flute, Dave Holland on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Blackwell's rhythms are very scattershot – almost as concerned with melodic improvisation as Berger's vibes – and Ward's a welcome addition on reeds. Titles include "Beyond The Moon", "Tune In", "Clarity", "With Silence", "Get Up", and "Fly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has a name in pen on front, some edge wear, and small split in the bottom seam.)

Serge BlennerLa Vogue ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A really cool keyboard set from Serge Blenner – issued during the glory days of the German Sky Records label, but with a vibe that's a bit different than most of their other releases! Blenner works on an assortment of keyboard and electronic sources – but with a sound that's maybe more Sheffield than Hamburg, especially as there's some great use of darkness and distortion in the mix – less clean electronics than some of his Sky contemporaries, which creates a very cool, moody sound throughout! The album has eight instrumental tracks – each a numbered "Phrase" by Serge. CD

Serge BlennerMagazin Frivole ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Overlooked electronic genius from Serge Blenner – an artist whose name and title might sound a bit French, but who recorded this set in the Hamburg underground at the start of the 80s! The work here is a nice bridge between earlier Sky Records modes and the rising tide of the German new wave – especially those corners of that scene that have gotten a lot of attention in the newly-titled cold wave generation of the time! The tunes are all instrumental, and nice and spare – with maybe elements that hearken back to the analogue electronics of very early Human League and Cabaret Voltaire – tuneful and song-based, but still really moody and dark too. Titles include "Derivatif", "Magazin Frivole", "Envoutement", "A L'Ouest", and "Polyphase". CD

Bluke (Luke Vibert & BlueRum13)Sense The Urgency ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
An unusual set of work from the ever-changing Luke Vibert – a collaboration with MC BlueRum13 – whose lyrics provide a great mix with Luke's beats and instrumentation on the album! All those crisp, creative elements that we love from older Vibert records are still very much in the mix – but the focus here is also different, and very fresh – and an equally great way to present the lyrics of BlueRum13 too. The set features a few guest appearances – from DJ SPS, Recyte, Ray Colom, Oz, and FACTS – and the set is divided up into sections devoted to four of the five senses – See, Touch, Hear, and Taste. Tracks include "Golden", "Wait A Minute", "Something Fresh", "Turninitup", "Slide By", "Mother Cuffint Chains", "Matter", "Yesh", "Let's Go", "Machine Gums", "Omnipotent", "Happy Daze", "Flying Mortalmovas", and "Gimme A Sign".

Bossa IVForget Your Name ... LP
2019. New Copy ... $12.99
A charming, joyous batch of tunes from Bossa IV – not really the bossa-sounding project you might assume from the name and from the fact Dusty Groove is stocking it, but a timeless and melodic batch of indie rock we'd put up there some of of the best of out there. This is Chicagoan Matthew McGarry's third album as Bossa IV, and he continues to do nearly everything himself, and impressively so, bearing influences from the 60s onward, but he's got such a singular style that you can't pinpoint them directly. We don't stock a lot of contemporary rock at the ol' DG...Bossa IV is just that irresistible! Includes "Protest (Down Pat)", "Sudden Deafness", "Total Chaos", "Paper View", "Forever Numb", "Ethnograph (Ra CBE)", "Grim Reaper", "Karaoke (ACH)", "Versa" and "Forget Your Name".

George BraithExtension ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Jacques BrelLe Plat Pays 1 (Les Bourgeois) ... LP
Barclay (France), 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Brel at his best – delivered with the biting tone that made Brel one of the most brilliant social commentators of the 20th Century, yet with a warmth that offset his critical vision with a real love of life! Arrangements and orchestrations are by the mighty Francois Rauber – a bit fuller and richer than on other Brel albums – in a manner that seeks to deepen the feeling of the tunes without overwhelming them in emotion. Beautiful work throughout – and with titles that include "Madeline", "La Statue", "Les Paumes Du Petit Matin", "Bruxelles", "Les Bourgeois", "Les Biches", and "Chanson Sans Paroles". Beautiful!

Jack Bongo BurgerEnd On Bongos ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
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

Leroy BurgessThrowback – Harlem 1979 to 1983 ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
No throwback here – as the music is a bold step forward in the career of Leroy Burgess – previously unissued tracks from his glory days in the New York club scene, and work that's as great as any of the material that was formally issued on the market! Burgess has a great ear for a compelling groove – and the tracks here were all recorded privately during the period when he was at the height of his boogie years – working under the names of Phreek, Aleem, Logg, and Convertion – in a real flurry of great work that seemed to hit the scene with a new single month after month! The tracks are slightly less polished, but not in a bad way – as they've got a style that's even more personal than some of Burgess' other music – keyboard parts that are very spontaneous, and vocals that have a nice edge. Tracks are mostly upbeat, and titles include "Hold Up", "Scandal", "In The Moment", "Keepin On", "Midnight In The Streets", "It's So Easy", "Fly Girl", "Moment Of My Life", "All Into U", "Under Da Radar", and "You Are My Number One".

Favorite (France), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
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

Donald Byrd & Doug WatkinsTransition Sessions (Byrd's Eye View/Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill/Watkins At Large) ... CD
Blue Note, 1955/1956. Used 2 CDs ... $22.99
3 rare hardbop sides – issued together as one great 2 CD set! The album features work from 3 records first issued by the short-lived Transition label from Boston – Byrd's Eye View and Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill, both by Donald Byrd (in case you couldn't guess!), and Watkins At Large, one of the few albums ever issued by hardbop bassist Doug Watkins. The feel of the material is great – totally on a par with the Blue Note hardbop work of the late 50s, and featuring many players in common with those recordings – Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Duke Jordan, and Art Taylor. The 2CD set features 17 tracks on all, and it's the first time the material's been made available to the US market at an affordable price! Titles include "Return To Paradise", "El Sino", "Doug's Blues", "Crazy Rhythm", "If I Love Again", "What's New", "More Of The Same", and "Phinupi". 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
