✨✧ Rosinha De ValencaUm Violao Em Primeiro Plano ... LP
RCA/Tres Selos (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little set from female guitarist Rosinha De Valenca – a player who worked briefly with Sergio Mendes in the mid 60s, and who sounds incredible on this rare album from 1971! Rosinha's got a light touch on the acoustic guitar – one that steps off nicely from a legacy of earlier Brazilian guitarists like Baden Powell or Luiz Bonfa – and on this set, she's backed by some light arrangements that almost have a groovy late 60s LA feel – with lots of nice lilting A&M-ish moments, touched by other spots of Brazilian grooves and funk! The blend is wonderful, and makes the record a real standout from Rosinha – a record that's more than enough to help her make her mark away from Sergio! Titles include "Asa Branca", "Summertime", "Samba De Minha Terra", "Tema Espanhol", "Boi Ta Ta", "Marinheiro", "Zanzibar", and "Mudei De idea". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – in a super-heavy record sleeve!)

✨✧ Thiago FrancaSambanzo – Etiopia ... LP
Tres Selos (Brazil), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing criss-crossing of modes – a heavily percussive set that brings together Brazilian and Ethiopian inspirations, and which also has a strong current of jazz too – which makes the whole thing feel like some lost spiritual session from many years back! Thiago Franca himself plays a variety of saxes – in a small combo that features guitar, bass, and drums – all used in ways that are very freewheeling, and used very differently than you'd get in any American group – as the guitar is often as much a part of the rhythm as the bass – and the drums and percussion mix things up beautifully – leaving plenty of space for Franca to soar in the lead on these well-blown and soulful solos! Titles include "Capadocia", "Xango Da Capadocia", "Etiopia", "Risca Faca", "Xango", and "Sino Da Igrejinha". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Seu JorgeCru ... LP
Tres Selos (Brazil), 2005. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The sound of global soul in the 21st Century – and an amazing set from the soon-to-be legendary Seu Jorge! Jorge's possibly best known for his appearances in films over the past few years – like The Life Aquatic or City Of God – but take it from us, he's one of the greatest living artists working in modern music – and has a sound, sense, and charm that will knock down barriers and boundaries all over the world! Unlike previous efforts, this album's incredibly spare – done in a style that often just features Jorge's vocals next to acoustic guitar, percussion, cavaquinho, and a bit of light keys. But that doesn't mean that the record's a sleeper – because it's got an incredibly full sound – an energy and excitement that pulses from the very first note, and which is carried off almost entirely by Seu Jorge himself! Even on the sparer, mellower tunes, the vocals have a power that's simply tremendous – transcendent of language, and reaching out in this really magical way. Titles include the sublime groover "Tive Razao", plus "Chatterton", "Mania De Peitao", "So Gonca", "Bem Querer", "Bola De Meia", and "Fiore De La Citta". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing pressing, in a heavy cardstock cover – with large booklet!)

✨✧ Luis VagnerSimples ... LP
Warner/Tres Selos (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost 70s gem from Brazil – the kind of MPB treasure that keeps us buying digging and digging over the years! Luis Vagner Lopes works in a style that reminds us a lot of early 70s work by Lo Borges, Milton Nascimento, and some of the other singer-songwriters in Brazil at the time. There's a rock-like approach at the core – but it's augmented by jazzy flourishes, some larger orchestrations, and other elements that give it a quirky feel, and a bit more of a soulful approach than you might think. Vagner's songs are all quite nice, and titles include "Chula Louca", "Nega Veia", "Nas Planices Muitas Luas De Paz", "Olha O Pedagio", "Tic Toc", and "Voce Ja Viu Ne". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – in a super-heavy record sleeve!)
