VA - Blue Brazil Vol 3: Blue Note in a Latin Groove (2000)

Artist: VA
Title Of Album: Blue Brazil Vol 3: Blue Note in a Latin Groove
Year Of Release: 2000
Label: Blue Note
Genre: Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz
Quality: 320kbs
Total Time: 01:02:24
Total Size: 140mb

Continuing its reputation for releasing excellent jazz and world music, the Blue Note label has issued the third volume of Blue Brazil. Although many of the traditional Brazilian artists on this compilation might be unknown to North American audiences, the bossa nova sound will always be familiar. For Blue Brazil, Vol. 3, Mark Taylor dove deep into the archives to pull together a unique collection of rare and obscure music in the bossa nova tradition. None of the tracks have been previously released on compilations or LP reissues in Japan or Europe, making this album even more of a gem. The Brazilian sound is made complete with a touch of samba, compliments of a Monsueto track from the early '60s. For fans of Brazilian music or just beginners looking to learn, Blue Brazil, Vol. 3 comes highly recommended. ~ Diana Potts

The album is good! If you enjoy Blue Note or Brazilian music then its more than worth the small price. Blue Note fans will particularly enjoy this album as the fusion of styles is well suited and executed.
The album starts off in high spirits of the Samba then meanders through the Blue notes of Brazil, excellent for dinner parties or nights in.

However the only point of caution would be to those of you who would be into hard core Brazilian Music, then this might not be your favorite cup of tea, all be it one to which you may wish to experience. ~ John Duff

... I grew to appreciate this one more. At first listen, you're thrown off because it's so much different from the first one, released a few years earlier in the mid 90s (this one's from 1997). Featuring Brazilian tracks with a pretty "blue note" type of vibe, but really loaded with funk & some soul, this is a sampler of some pretty sweet clasics from the 60's and 70's (give or take a few). The funny thing is that today, I listened to a few albums I hadn't heard in a long time, so I felt like comparing Blue Brazil 2 with Beleza Tropical and Brazilian Beats.

Starting out with Antonio & Adolofo's "Transamazonica", you know you're in for a pretty sweet, jazzed up trip. While you've got some original glory featured here, do note that in early 07', it was featured on Far Out's "Brazilika", given a Daz-I-Que edit under the title "Luizao". Wilson Simonal had a nice rendition of a Moacir Santos classic here with "Nana". And how about Elza Soares' "Deixa A Negar Gingar". Once married to the "Joy of the People" (Garrincha), Elza had so much power and spirit in her voice, and was so popular the same could also be said of her. Milton Banana which his distinct sound, light bossa and gentle sway chipped in with a few great songs too. Also check out the Quarteto Em Cy version of "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" - nice. It's been done quite a few times, maybe more notably recent versions by fusion legends Azymuth. But I think the real cool track here is the pretty emotional "Libera Nos" by Edu Lobo. The intro's so cool - in about 1996 or so, a French jazz group featuring Salome De Bahia named "Reminiscence Quartet" released a song titled "Inspiration" which featured the beginning of this song. Fitting, really considering Edu Lobo's sometimes overlooked musical genius.

All in all, this was a very good compilation of songs. Not all of the songs I liked now or back when I first got this several years ago ("Also Sprach Zarathustra" being one, even though it was a very influential song. But listening to it now, I can appreciate more of the songs. There's some real quality here and some really cool, funky and groovy old sounds and auras from Brasil from 30-40 years ago. The politics, the poverty, the crime and desparation but still the breath-taking beauty and art in such an amazing place. Check it out! And it placed a bit above Brazilian Beats (vol 1) and Beleza Tropical to me. Different concepts, but altogether different quality too. The good thing with this compilation is that they proudly trumpet that Brazilian music is much more than "The Girl from Ipanema" and they do a great job showing it. ~ bordersj2

Fantastic! And every bit as wonderful as volume one. Put together by the guys at Mr. Bongo, this volume 2 features more rare Brazilian gems from the Brazilian EMI/Odeon catalog. The selection is stunning, and filled with material that will make your jaw drop! Way beyond the usual bossa stuff, this one includes amazing fusion, cool grooy sounding stuff, and haunting cuts that are beyond description. Great stuff, and a fantastic introduction to the kind of grooves that have been driving the international Brazilian scene. ~ Dusty Groove

I cannot believe it took me this long to "discover" this CD. It is remarkable with terrific tracks and a seemingly natural flowing feel about it. From the opening track, you are transported to Brazil and have the feel of the music and the inspiration of the new movement and the next generation of Brazilian musicians and stars.
The biggest standout track to me is Joyce's "Aldeia de Ogum". It displays her range and the shows how she could use her voice as an instrument just like the other top divas of Sarah Vaugh and Flora Purim. Other notable artists were Edu Lobo, Marcos Valle, Eumir Deodoto and Milton Banana Trio.

After giving it a listen, you wonder why Sergio Mendes version of Ponteio wasn't included. But it doesn't stop you from enjoying it. I recommend this CD. ~ bordersj2

To talk about Brazil is to evoke the musical paradise per excellence, the untiring joy, the delirious football, its dreamy beaches, its eternal sun. that successful cornucopia has allowed to nourish an intense musicality as well musical styles, including Joven Guarda in the 50?s, samba and MPB in the 60's and 70's. That impressive crossroads of cultures; European, African and Indian. Furthermore, Brazil has inspired the jazz and vice versa with fabulous results.

This album incorporates a very valuable set of singers, ensembles between 1965 and 1980, and it constitutes an admirable tour de force throughout the Brazilian music: Quarteto Novo, Joyce, Milton banana Trio, Eumir Deodato and the delirious singer Elza Soares

If you go for this album, you will make a wise choice. ~ Hiram Gomez Pardo

This inspiring, romp of an album never let's up! The corny cover of a Carmen Miranda with fruit bowl hat is not a good indication of the quality of the music which is seriously brilliant (and there are no Carmen Miranda songs). Joyce's dazzling, virtuosic, "Aldea de ogum" is a standout track but this collection of rare material from the 1960s to the 1990s is remarkable for its consistent high quality. "Blue Brazil" belongs with other essential Brazilian compilation CDs like "Canta Brazil -The Great Brazilian Songbook" and "Beleza Tropical 1". ~ Jeff Burgess

U.S. group formed at the start of the '80's by Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of Talking Heads. Other members of the group were Steve Scales, Alex Weir, Tyrone Downie and Tina's sisters Loric, Lani and Laura.

Although originally established as a side project, the Tom Tom Club enjoyed early success with hits such as "Genius of Love" and "Wordy Rappinghood", which were taken from their self-titled first album which was released on Sire in the US and Island Records elsewhere in 1981.

"Genius of Love" has been sampled or reinterpreted by many artists, including rapper Redman, Funkdoobiest and Mariah Carey in her hit single "Fantasy". "It's Nasty" (1982) by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five was one of the early rap versions of the song - however, the sample was re-recorded by a live band, as was common practice at the time. Another version, "Genius Rap" (1981), by Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde was the first version.

VA - How Many Roads: Black America Sings Bob Dylan (2010)

Bob Dylan is not a black artist; not thought of as an R&B/soul/blues artist; and not even especially thought of as a songwriter often covered by African Americans. Yet his compositions have garnered their share of interpretations by black musicians, and 20 such covers from 1964-1990 were assembled for this unusual compilation. The Ace label excels at putting together imaginative, cross-licensed anthologies bridging different eras and styles, as well as combining material by stars and unknowns, and How Many Roads: Black America Sings Bob Dylan is no exception. None of these tracks were hits, but the majority of the performers were either very popular (Nina Simone, Solomon Burke, Gary "U.S." Bonds, Booker T. Jones, Esther Phillips, Brook Benton, the Isley Brothers, the Neville Brothers, the O'Jays, the Staple Singers, Patti LaBelle) or had a solid level of niche popularity (the Persuasions, Howard Tate, Freddie Scott, Bobby Womack). Most of the songs date from the '60s, but a couple post-'60s compositions do dot the program.

But while there's no faulting this CD on packaging grounds (including Ace's usual excellent liner notes), the music isn't quite as exciting as it is historically interesting. For the most part, these don't rate among either the best or more inventive Dylan covers. They're often simply competent tracks done in a more soul-oriented style than these items usually are. Highlights are naturally the cuts where performers strongly imprint their own personalities or come up with a particularly effective arrangement, like Nina Simone's impassioned "Just Like a Woman"; the Isley Brothers' SPAMisingly restrained and heartfelt "Lay Lady Lay"; the Persuasions' a cappella "The Man in Me"; and the Staple Singers' "Masters of War," which with a 1964 recording date goes back to their folk days. It might be a little harsh to suggest that some of the lesser efforts verge on forced novelty, but certainly Solomon Burke's strange 1965 version of "Maggie's Farm" does not play to that great soul singer's strengths. Other items are not so much worthy of praise or criticism as they are fairly perfunctory or unremarkable. It's also undeniable that this is missing some of the best and most famous African American Dylan covers, like Jimi Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower," Richie Havens' "Just Like a Woman," Stevie Wonder's "Blowin' in the Wind," or (to dig a little deeper) anything from Odetta's fine Odetta Sings Dylan album. There might be room for such selections on subsequent volumes, however, and overall this does a commendable job of putting an eclectic mix of lesser-celebrated Dylan covers in one place.

Vintage Black is the second of three releases in successive months from Indigo Jam Unit. December 2008 saw the release of the superb Pirates, and this album sees them embarking on a slightly different project, working with label mates Flexlife - an acoustic soul duo consisting of Rie Aoqi on vocals and Ken Okura on guitar.
Given the success that Indigo Jam Unit have had, imagine that this album is intended to show a different side to their music and also raise the profile of Flexlife. For this collaboration, the musicians decide to cover some classic soul songs from the sixties and seventies, and given that they have dipped into the songbooks of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five, Gil Scott-Heron and Curtis Mayfield, you could say that they have set themselves up for a fall. It's almost as if someone has raided their collection of Free Soul compilations and selected their favourite songs.

Intermezzo Media is proud to present for the first time an important missing piece of the vast discography ofEnnio Morricone: FRAULEIN DOKTOR, the Original and Complete Soundtrack Album, Limited 1500 Edition. The 1968 movie is about World War I, and directed by Alberto Lattuada, starring Suzy Kendall, KennethMore, Capucine, James Booth and Giancarlo Giannini. Since the very day of its release FRAULEIN DOKTOR was quite unfortunate. It had problems with the censorship because of the animal abuse scenes, the lesbian love, and the battle scenes harshness, almosthorror. This movie was never released on VHS or DVD, and so it is virtually unobtainable. Morricone wrote an impressively masterpiece of extraordinary musical and emotional value to accompany the Ypres Battle. The listening of this cue while watching the film scene it creates the real violence and terror climate, comparable only to that created by the music written by Prokofiev for the Battle on the Ice scene in the Alexander Nevsky film of Eisenstein. Maybe to balance that disturbing violent climate, Morricone wrote one of his most beautiful and poignant themes of love, which perfectly fits the complex and troubled personality of Fraulein Doktor. This CD album cannot be missed. Because it shows the multifaceted mastery of Maestro Morricone. De-Luxe booklet with 16 pages of rare archive photos and memorabilia. Orchestra conducted by: Bruno Nicolai

Cal Tjader - Live At The Funky Quarters (1972)

Artist:Cal Tjader
Title Of Album:Live At The Funky Quarters
Year Of Release: 1972
Genre: Jazz
Quality: 320 kbps
Total Time: 45:01
Total Size: 118 mb

A 1972 live set, Live at the Funky Quarters is every bit of its time: Cal Tjader's vibraphone is supported by Al Zulaica's electric piano and John Heard's Jaco Pastorious-style bass-as-lead-instrument, giving the whole thing a fusiony sheen that will be the dealbreaker for many listeners. Those not constitutionally averse to early-'70s fusion will find much to enjoy here, however, as Tjader plays with his usual grace and fluidity, and Zulaica's electric piano solos are refreshingly free of Chick Corea-style overplaying. The jazz-rock-inflected reworkings of earlier Tjader favorites like "Manteca" and "Soul Sauce III" -- which features an amazing extended percussion breakdown section buoyed by Heard's rubbery bassline -- work surprisingly well, and newer material like "Philly Mambo" and the delicate allad "Mother and Child" is well-suited to the players' strengths. Most of this album can be found on the CD two-fer Descarga, but that release deletes a funky version of Tjader's tune "Theme," so true fans will want to search for the original vinyl.

02 A2 Mother And Child (5:40)
03 A3 Cubano Chant (4:54)

One of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
"Music of My Mind" is widely hailed as Stevie Wonder's artistic rebirth, the beginning of his "classic period." The 1972 release is a breathtaking exploration of soul, sound and the sonic possibilities of the recording studio, shaped as much by his roots in R&B as it is by his interest in electronic instrumentation.
Compared to his earlier work, this music feels worlds away, the texture of the album was different from anything he had released. Performing almost entirely solo, Stevie ties overdubs of keyboards, drums, harmonica as well as his mastery of traditional song structure and his immense musical personality into well-woven audio tapestries. Standout tracks include "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)," "Happier Than The Morning Sun," "Keep On Running" and "I Love Every Little Thing About You."
He makes a small job of transposing the passion of soul music into a synthesized world. At this point, people realized that Wonder was no longer suggesting brilliance. He had found it.

Is it a parody on last 50 years of pop music? Yes or no, but the result is pure fun. Favourite tracks are dance oriented Asa Nisi Masa, Barbarella, Body Down, Cha Cha Chapa, TV Show, Boule De Neige, Che Gambe, Ma Piovre, Fate Le Coppie, Optical, Reality, Smiling And Joking and beautifull touchy Lotus Eaters, which stand near The Beatles or Air. Claudio “Shiffer” Zanoni not only has written all 20 tracks on this album, but also produced it and played all instruments. Short tracks, uplifting, full of joy, jokes, optimism and funk, this is crossover between 60’s pop, breakbeat, jazz, tango, lounge and even d’n'b. ~

VA - In The Christmas Groove

One of the coolest Christmas compilations you could ever hope to own – but you probably guessed that already, from the cover image that pays tribute to a classic set from James Brown! The JB image is certainly well placed – as most of the tracks here are deeply funky Holiday tunes – the kind of gritty seasonal ditties that were only ever issued as funky 45s back in the day – and most really only on a local level, too! Strut's really outdone themselves with this excellent collection – as it features a fair bit of Christmas rarities we've never heard before, but which are totally wonderful – all-new tunes, not common Christmas cover versions – played and performed with a hell of a soulful feel throughout. Knock that ol' Bing Crosby record off the turntable, and give this one plenty of spins this December – and dammit, the music's so great, you may well find yourself playing the collection well into the New Year too!

The golden era of ‘60s and ‘70s soul music boasts a great tradition for Christmas songs and, following in the footsteps of classic Christmas albums from the Motown stable and James Brown, Strut enter the festive spirit this November with the first ever Yuletide compilation on the label, IN THE CHRISTMAS GROOVE, bringing together 12 rare soul, funk and blues cuts rediscovered from Christmases past. Featuring tracks often only ever released as obscure 45 B-sides, the compilation tracks one-off moments when the good groove met the jingle bells to devastating effect. Artists include bluesman Jimmy Reed, jamming hard on ‘Christmas Present Blues’ and Calypsonian Capt. Elmo McKenzie with a lilting Yuletide Caribbean ode on Barbados label Trex. UK-based session collective Zebra weigh in with a festive slice of gritty Afro-rock and kids choir Harlem Children’s Chorus’ paint a poignant picture of ‘Black Christmas’ in the ghetto. We also include some useful covers of Christmas favourites. Late, lamented New Orleans Godfather Eddie Bo produces Isaac Clarke on a solid version of ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ for his Seven B label and The Black On White Affair out of Seattle rock out on an amazing re-work of ‘Auld Lang Syne’. All in all, an essential diggers’ grab bag for the festive season and a refreshing alternative to the traditional Christmas fare. Early reaction from Lapland is encouraging: “Sinatra and Jim Reeves are certainly legends but the same songs each Christmas are driving me and Rudolph a bit potty, quite frankly,” explains Santa Claus. “This is the sh*t I want in my sleigh!”

Hardly the kind of funk you might find in the crates over here although most of these 70s Dutch gems have a strong American influence! Like the first volume, this set is a revelatory look at a scene we know hardly anything about a range of cool combos from The Netherlands who picked up US styles of funky jazz and soul, then put their own twist on it with a range of very cool grooves! Only a few of these records might have made it to our shores back in the day, so even if you've dug deep, you'll be hard-pressed to find most of these tracks in the original and like the first volume, this one features detailed notes on all the artists as well as a full bonus CD that features remixes by Kraak & Smaak, DJ Maestro, Pax & Pry, Funnysounds, and others.

Joey Negro Biografia

Joey Negro Biog

Joey Negro is the most well-known pseudonym of master British DJ/producer/remixer Dave Lee. Under a plethora of other monikers including Jakatta, Akabu, Doug Willis, Raven Maize, The Sunburst Band, Sessomatto, and Z Factor, Dave was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in 1990. Indeed, he was in the studio making credible and outstanding British House music when many luminaries around him were still busy getting to grips with their decks. In 2010 little has changed and Dave is widely regarded as one of the most commercially successful and in-demand artists on the global scene.

A producer first and foremost, Dave uses his DJ’ing talents as a sound-bed for tweaking his musical creations to perfection. His work ethic is legendry, having been involved in well over 200 productions, countless albums and a healthy stack of hit singles. Through releasing tracks such as ‘Must Be The Music’, ‘Make A Move On Me’, ‘Can’t Get High Without You’ and Jakatta’s ‘American Dream’ and ‘My Vision’, Dave has established himself as a true professional who keeps getting better. Widely considered an expert in all things funk, soul and disco-related, Dave is also a helpful ‘consultant’ depended on by radio and TV producers world wide.

Born on the Isle of Wright, Dave grew up on the south coast of England during the late 70’s and early 80’s listening to local radio stations and the sounds of Earth Wind & Fire, Heatwave, Shalamar and The Jacksons. A lack of good quality music at the time encouraged Dave to seek inspiration in the record shops of London. This soon led to a job at London vinyl store Smithers & Leigh where he first heard the revered house classics ‘Jack Your Body’ and ‘I Can Feel It’, sounds that were major inspirations for him to produce his own records.

Following the closure of Smithers & Leigh, Dave joined Rough Trade Distribution where he was charged with setting up its dance music arm, Demix. It was here where Dave started working with the Rhythm King label, which had had a number of hits with acts like Bomb The Bass, S-Express, Cookie Crew and Beatmasters.

His experience in advising other labels led to Dave establishing his own imprint, Republic Records, in 1988. Now defunct, Republic is today remembered as the UK’s first soulful house label releasing classics such as Phase II “Reachin” and Turntable Orchestra “You’re Gonna Miss Me”. This was also home the first Dave Lee production, M.D.E.M.M.'s ‘Get Busy’, which reached 88 in the UK charts and 18 in the club charts. His most successful work during this time, according to Dave himself, was ‘Forever Together’, released under his Raven Maize alter ego. Dave created hype by licensing the song to NY label Quark and created a story of an ex-convict who played in a steel band in Disney Land, even using a computer-enhanced image of a friend sporting an afro as a press shot.

The Gumbo Brothers
Over the last seven years,The Gumbo Brothers have firmly rooted themselves in the eclectic artistic tradition of Venice Beach, California with weekly performances at various local venues and parties. Since 2003, they have been entertaining the Venice community with an annual Mardi Gras parade on the boardwalk including a traditional brass band, funky drum corps, stilt walkers, dancers and costumed bead-throwing revelers. The band's debut cd, Funky Freedom, was released in 2007. According to CDBaby, "This collection of swampy funk is deep in the pocket, right where it should be. The grooves are thick, the vocals are sparse and always add texture to the interplay between the musicians, and the vibes never get bogged down...The Gumbo Brothers say they're 'going to hit you with some ass-shakin' funk!' They got that right. Prepare yourself." It was followed up in 2008 by The Gumbo Brothers On Fire, a collection of original Mardi Gras songs.
Influences include: The Meters, Dr. John, War, Grant Green, Ivan “boogaloo” Joe Jones, James Brown, The Dirty Dozen, Galactic, and Walter “Wolfman” Washington. With over 300 shows behind them including notable appearances at the Boom Boom Room in San Francisco, The House of Blues in LA, and venues up and down the west coast, this Venice-based quartet is bringing their infectious, booty movin' bayou grooves to swamp-funk fans throughout the southland and beyond.
