Soul Bossa TrioDolphins (Japanese version) ... CD
Tokuma (Japan), 2002. Used ... $13.99
This Japanese group have certainly grown up a lot – and this beautiful album is their most mature in years! The combo is fronted by singer Ann Sally – whose English language vocals add a tremendous amount of sophistication to the record – snaking forth in a cool jazzy style that goes way past the easy bossa remake mode of earlier albums. Sally's voice is incredible, and it's mixed with a well-constructed set of backings by the group, music that is especially heavy in its use of Fender Rhodes! The track list is great, too – with wonderful remakes of Fred Neil's "The Dolphins", Flora Purim's "Light As A Feather", Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance", and Coltrane's "Naima". Sweet, mellow, jazzy, and wonderfully rich – the group's best album in years! CD

OrlandivoBossa Samba E Balanco (A Chave Do Successo/Orlann Divo/Samba Em Paralelo) (3CD set) ... CD
Musidisc/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 60s. Used 3CD ... $33.99
A trio of classic albums from Brazilian singer Orlandivo – all presented with original artwork too! First up is A Chave Do Successo – the first album ever by samba singer Orlandivo, a great talent who had a knack for blending samba, bossa, jazz, and a bit of soul – surfacing here with a sound that's quite different than most other singers of his generation! The record features organ by the great Ed Lincoln, grooving around in a tightly percussive bossa-inflected style – and the record is every bit as fresh and sparkling as the cover makes you think! Titles include "Onde Anda O Meu Amor", "Vem Pro Samba", "Chavinha", "Samba Toff", "Dias De Verao", "Sambadinho", "Saudade Doi Demais", "Amor Vai E Vem", and "Frajola E Piu Piu". Next is the self-titled Orlann Divo – warm bossa grooves – and the second album by Orlandivo, billed here on the cover as Orlann Divo! The album's a great batch of instrumentals – jazzy, with a mix of percussion, bass, and organ that's quite different from the usual bossa album of its type – much more expansive, and much more chance-taking. The use of organ is incredible – really weird at times, pushing the sonic qualities of the instrument in ways that you'd never hear on a Walter Wanderley album from the same time – and the nature of the tunes is great too, and really pushes past the usual batch of bossa covers and standards to come up with some great off-kilter styles. Features work by Ed Lincoln, Rubens Bassini, and Waltel Branco – and titles include "Samba No Japao", "Zezinho", "Amor Quadradinho", "Afim De Voce", "Vira Lata", "Somos Tres", "Saudade Em Seu Lugar", "Faz De Conta", and "Brincando De Samba". Last up is Samba Em Paralelo – a cool batch of jazzy tunes that's got a really fresh sound! The album's got the feel of a bossa session, but the instrumentation is a bit off-kilter – in a really cool way, especially on the way that vibes are used next to the vocals. Most tracks have a lively samba groove – and titles include "Paralelo", "Entrou No Samba", "Deixa O Vento Levar", "Na Roda Do Samba", "E Samba", and "Voce E Paz". This is a huge treat to see reissued so beautifully – and the sound is as crisp and alive as can be on CD. A stunner! CD

✨✧ Herb Ellis/Laurindo Almeida/Johnny GrayThree Guitars In Bossa Nova Time ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really really wonderful little record – one that's far more than you might guess from it's slightly gimmicky title! The session's clearly done in a mode to resonate with the Charlie Byrd or Stan Getz bossa work of the early 60s, but it's also got a slightly offbeat quality that makes it really unique – a sound that partly comes from the use of three guitars by three relatively different players, and from the way that the tunes themselves are put together. There's almost a jam session feel at times here – with the guitars coming together in a tension of different voices, hardly the sort of thing you'd hear in a regular bossa album. But equally great is the tenor sax work of Bob Enevoldsen – which comes in with a sharper edge and a bit more soul than his 50s sides – creating a deeper quality to the tunes that's really great. Percussion is by a trio that includes Milt Holland, Bob Neel, and Chico Guerrero – and Donn Trenner plays piano and Bob Bertaux is on bass. Titles include "I Told Ya I Love Ya Now Get Out", "Sweet Dreams", "Bossa Nova #2", "Bossa Nova Samba", and "Leave It To Me". CD

✨✧ Marian McPartlandBossa Nova + Soul ... CD
Time/Bainbridge, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most unique albums ever cut by pianist Marian McPartland – and definitely a set that offers up the bossa and soul promised in the title! Marian's playing electric and acoustic, over some very groovy rhythms from the trio of Ben Tucker on bass, Dave Bailey on drums, and Ralph Dorsey on congas – a group who give Marian a groove that's much more like the sort you'd find on a 60s record by Vince Guaraldi than any of her other work! The electric piano is great – not a Fender Rhodes, but most likely a Wurlitzer – which creates unusual tones that again really changes the McPartland sound – and the rhythms throughout create a wicked vibe, and loads of wonderful modal numbers. Titles include "Stranger In A Dream", "Coming Home Baby", "Green Dolphin Street", "Baby You Should Know It", "Love For Sale", "Tell Me", and "Sweet And Lovely". CD

✨✧ Dom SalvadorDom Salvador Trio ... CD
Imagem (Brazil), 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wicked jazzy bossa from 60s Brazil – a crackling early classic from pianist Dom Salvador! The group here is super-tight – a tremendous triangle of piano, bass, and drums – all grooving at equal pace, with a great deal of energy – and given a heck of a lot of soul from Dom's bold lines on the piano! There's a slight lyrical vibe at points, too – making for music that's mighty sweet, and very seductive – and the whole thing's right up there with some of the best bossa trio dates of the time. Trio features bass by Edson Lobo and drums by Victor Manga – and titles include "Arrastao", "Promessa", "Pro Batera", "Santarem", and "Tematrio". CD

Isabelle AntenaEn Cavale ... CD
Giant, 1986. Used ... $6.99
Beautifully sweet and jazzy from the lovely Isabelle Antena – recording here under her own name, but still very much in the mode of the French trio from which she emerged! The record actually came about during the later years of Antena – at a time when the group was still recording sporadically, and still working very much in the spirit of the bossa and jazz styles of their debut. On this set, Isabelle steps forward a bit more as a lead singer, and the overall groove shows a bit more of a love of soul – blended together here with the jazz influences in a way that's very similar to the best side of Sade in her early years, but also handled here with a leaner, more personal indie style. There's a great 80s pop vibe running through the set – one that makes for some nicely catchy numbers, as well as a few dancefloor mis-steps! Titles include "Play Back", "Easy Street", "Seaside Weekend", "Magic Words", "How Can They Tell", and "Ten Minutes". CD

Dudley MooreWorld Of Dudley Moore ... LP
Decca (UK), 1970. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Lovely lovely work from Dudley Moore – known to most as a comedic actor, but also a heck of a jazz pianist, and head of his own groovy trio during the 60s! The tunes mix together soul jazz and bossa trio styles – all dancing together in Dud's incredibly light-touched style on the ivories – and the set's got some great original numbers – including the groover "Poova Nova", the slow stepper "Sooz Blues", and the cuts "Lysie Does It" and "Take Your Time".

Quartette Tres BienBoss Tres Bien (Decca pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1964. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A landmark blend of soul jazz and bossa nova – cut by the legendary Quartette Tres Bien back in the 60s! The group are kind of a "piano trio plus" – an outfit with piano, bass, and drums in the lead – but also plenty of conga and added percussion – a style used here to really underscore the bossa inspiration of the set – often in ways that are more driving and more complicated than original 60s bossa recordings themselves! The feel is really unique – almost equally inspired by African rhythms in parts – and even when the group are playing familiar numbers, then manage to transform the tracks completely with their inventive approach to rhythms and super-searing work on piano! Titles include the jazz dance classic "Boss Tres Bien", plus "Rhodesian Chant", "Always on Saturday", "The Sweetest Sounds", "I Love Paris", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Days Of Wine & Roses".

VariousMod Jazz & Then Some ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A really great entry into one of our favorite series ever – and a set that's overflowing with rare jukebox jazz from the 60s! These aren't the heady tracks of the Coltrane generation, but the kind of soulful stompers that were brewing underneath – circulating on 45s from lots of indie-labels – and often sitting in a sweet space between hardbop and R&B! Lots of tunes have a very mod feel – hence the title – either a strong tenor solo, or some sweet Hammond, or some skittish rhythms – and the set features lots of tracks that we'd never heard before, and a few more than we'd forgotten about too. Titles include "Bossa Baby" by Googie Rene, "Hen House" by Paul & Rick, "Another Child Lost" by Floyd White, "The Fat Man (part 1)" by The TKOs, "Bucket Full Of Soul" by Trudy Pitts, "Cooking In Grease" by Reuben Wilson, "Watermelon Walk" by The Five Counts, "Hard Working Girl" by Clarence Daniels & Obie Jessie, "You Were Wrong" by The Miles Grayson Trio, and "El Tacos" by Frenchy & The Chessmen.

✨✧ Luiz Eca Y La Familia SagradaLa Nueva Onda Del Brasil (180 gram pressing) ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible batch of Brazilian grooves – a rare Mexican album cut by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio, featuring early work by Claudio Roditi, Nana Vasconcelos, and Joyce! The sound is a swirling mix of late bossa and the baroque grooves that were coming out of Brazil at the end of the 60s – deeply jazzy, with some nice soulful touches – and very strong use of voices and instruments together in one sweeping sound that's immediately captivating! The whole thing's great – a lost recording that only saw the light of day briefly in the late 70s, and which is finally getting a proper release today. If you've ever dug Eca's work with the Tamba Trio, or any of the vocal work of the Blue Brazil/Odeon generation, you'll really love this one! Titles include "Juliana", "Ye Me Le", "Sa Marina", "Se Voce Pensa", "Las Vamos Nos", "Please Garcon", and "Pais Tropical". CD

✨✧ Pepper AdamsLive In Europe ... LP
Impro (France), 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A really great setting for Pepper Adams – a rare European live date that has his baritone sax matched with the mighty talents of the George Arvanitas trio! Arvanitas' piano is always great, but we especially love the rhythm work here by bassist Jacky Samson and drummer Charles Saudrais – two amazing players who help Pepper find a groove on the record that's quite different than usual. The set begins with the 11 minute "Bossa Noveau" – a Brazilian-styled groover that reminds us a lot of the Samson/Saudrais work with Marco Di Marco and Chris Woods – and the same sort of vibe follows on the 17 minute "Min & Maj Blues" too. "Ephemera" and "Body & Soul" are a bit straighter, but totally great. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFuture Lounge 03 ... CD
Stereo Deluxe (Germany), 2000. Used ... $4.99
Beautiful stuff! This is a sparkling collection of modern lounge material – compiled by the folks at Stereo Deluxe from a host of different labels, all put together with a perfect vibe that's sure to satisfy fans of the old stuff as much as the new. Although most of this music was created in the past few years, it's filled with oodles of older elements – like bubbling Hammond organ, sweet Fender Rhodes piano, washes of soulful strings, and touches of bossa beats. More than just a slap-dash licensing effort, this is a wickedly conceived set with a strong feel throughout. Includes "Return Of The Coconut Groove" by Trio Eletrico, "Dis Poem" by Mutabaruka, "2ter Tag" by Siedg Der Liebe, "Reincarnation" by Pablo, "Elevator" by Jaffa, "Papdam" by Yonderboi, "Stories" by Airfix, "Ambrosia" by A Reminiscent Drive, and "Maria Quiet" by Astrud Gilberto. 15 tracks in all!

Xaver Fischer TrioVisit From A Goddess ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2005. Used ... $9.99
Sweet keyboard grooves from the Xaver Fischer Trio – an outfit that we haven't heard from for a few years, but who still sound totally great! The group's format is spare and simple – and very much dedicated to the spirit of smaller 70s keyboard funk – with stripped-down basslines and drum parts, topped off by warmer waves of sound from leader Xaver Fischer – who seems to be playing Fender Rhodes on most of the set – and who's got a flowing approach to the keys that we totally love! Drums are nice and hard, but more complicated than just a set of jazzy breaks – and the overall feel of the album is lushly gliding and soulful – topped off by vocals on one tune, but carried by the strength of the trio on the rest! And there's no remixes, no extra bits, or programming to mess up the sound – just pure simple jazzy grooves from the trio! Titles include "Tubao", "Rio Negro", "Mombassa Bossa", "Better Times 1925", "Marchenwald", "Bahia", "Better Times", and "Cocktail Boogie". CD

Genius work from Victor Assis Brasil – one of the greatest Brazilian saxophonists ever, heard here in a sublime recording from the bossa nova era! The set's got a wicked feel right from the start – killer rhythms from the trio of Tenorio Jr on piano, Edison Lobo on bass, and Chico Batera on drums – topped with some amazingly soulful alto sax from Victor – blown with these edges that are totally great, both modern and meaningful, at a level that almost reminds us of a young Gary Bartz! The set was produced by Roberto Quartin for his legendary Forma label, so the sound is amazing – and titles include "Naquele Base", "Devaneio", "Dueto", "Amor De Nada", "Eugenie", "Desenhos", and "Minha Saudade".

Stan Getz & Charlie ByrdJazz Samba ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia".
