Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Primal Roots (Japanese pressing) ... LP
A&M (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $23.99
A really unique little album from Sergio Mendes and Brasil 77 – one that's in a much more rootsy style than any of his other work! The "primal roots" here are taken seriously, and like some of his other contemporaries in Brazilian music, Sergio's looking back a bit, and towards a rural setting for inspiration – pulling together some especially strong styles from the northeast of Brazil, and fusing them with his soaring, jazzier mode of the 60s. The blend is a great one – and the record is easily one of Sergio's greatest – with titles that include Dorival Caymmi's "Promise of a Fisherman", Oscar Castro Neves' "After Sunrise", and a great 18 minute version of Edu Lobo's "Circle Game", with great baroque arrangements. LP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool Japanese pressing – in a heavy gatefold cover! Includes insert.)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Vintage 74 ... LP
Bell, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot more funk than you might be used to hearing on one of Sergio's albums, making the whole thing groove in a marvelous way – while still holding onto some Brazilian touches in the rhythms, and that sweet two-female vocal lead style of Sergio's other work. The set includes two funky Stevie Wonder covers – "Superstition" and "Don't You Worry About a Thing" – plus versions of "This Masquerade", "Voce Abusou", and "Double Rainbow". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the textured cover. A nice copy!)

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Love Music ... LP
Bell, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Wouldn't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Pais Tropical ... LP
A&M, 1971. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great album from the early 70s – one that has Sergio and crew doing Brazilian tracks with a bit of an LA studio feel – one that takes their older bossa groove into even more soulful territory! Dave Grusin and Tom Scott did the arrangements, both in the best styles of their key early work – which means that things are tight, but never to slick or overpolished. The album's a real standout gem that links together 2 different period's of Sergio's career – and titles include wonderful versions of "Asa Branca" and "Zanzibar", plus a version of "Pais Tropical", done here in one of the best versions we've ever heard! Other tracks include "So Many People", "Gone Forever", "I Know You", "After Midnight", "Morro Velho" and "Tonga". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sergio MendesSergio Mendes & The New Brasil '77 ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through the mix – but the overall groove is polished 70s soul, with plenty of jazzy touches – similar to the modern soul generation coming up on labels like Capitol or Elektra at the time. The group delivers a landmark version of Stevie Wonder's "The Real Thing" – a killer stepper that's kept the album alive for years – and other tracks include "Why", "Love City", "Mozambique", "Love Me Tomorrow", "P-Ka-Boo", and "Peninsula". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve, with a bent corner. Cover has light ringwear and a small cutout notch.)

✨✧ Bossa RioBossa Rio ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy bossa gem from the glory days of A&M Records – an ultra-hip group recorded with production by Sergio Mendes! The feel here is a lot like that of Brasil 66 – bossa rhythms, sunny CA instrumentation, and lovely female vocals – in this case sung singularly, by the lovely Gracinha Leporace – aka Mrs Mendes! Instrumentation is arguably even better than on Brasil 66 records – with wonderfully groovy organ lines from Manfredo Fest, who plays Lowrey organ instead of the usual Hammond. A really essential slice of bossa nova – and a record we'd never part with! Filled with wonderful tunes that include "Gentle Rain", "Up Up & Away", "Wave", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", "Cacao do Sal", "Veleiro", "Saiupa", and "Nana". CD

✨✧ Tom Jobim & OthersHistoria Da Musica Popular Brasileira (12 inch LP & booklet) ... LP
Abril Cultural (Brazil), 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great package of Jobim material, and very nicely produced, like all the other titles in this series! The album features some great compositions by Jobim, including a few lesser-known gems – and the music is performed by a wide range of artists, but all very faithfully to Jobim's ideas. The set includes "Garota De Ipanema" by Os Cariocas, "Teresa Da Praia" by Dick Farney & Lucio Alves, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, "Maititapere" by Jobim, "Sabia" by MPB4, "Corcovado" by Sergio Mendes & Bossa Rio, "Ligia" by Chico Buarque, and "Falando De Amor" by Ney Matogrosso. Full-length 12" LP – and the booklet's filled with nice writings and some great color photos! LP, Vinyl record album
(In the booklet cover, with light wear.)
