Veleiro  performed by Elis Regina  1966
Recommended by Mr Steal [profile]

What a range of emotion and mood she packs into this song. The fact that I don't speak any Portuguese just doesn't matter. The arrangement, too, is stunning, and combines with Elis's voice to create several heart-stopping moments in under 3 minutes – and there's one sublime crescendo where she sings a low, ascending scale that defines why I love music.

from Elis (Philips P765.001P)



Take it easy my brother Charlie  performed by Astrud Gilberto  1972
Recommended by delicado [profile]

This entertaining track opens with Astrud talking over a groovy guitar and piano background. As she starts to sing the words, the percussion becomes more pronounced, producing a nice bossa/funk hybrid. The production is very different to a lot Astrud’s work, probably because this album was from an obscure label (Perception) with contributions from different personnel than on many of her Verve recordings (e.g. Airto Moreira, Maria Toledo and Eumir Deodato).

from Astrud Gilberto Now (Perception)



Ela desatinou  performed by Chico Buarque  1970
Recommended by delicado [profile]

This great ethereal brasilian pop number is from the portuguese language version of Chico Buarque's 'lost' 1970 album, recorded in Rome with Ennio Morricone, while he was in exile from Brasil. While Buarque's vocals are excellent, it's Morricone who really shines here, providing exquisite sweeping arrangements, and some great backing vocals from his protege Edda Dell'Orso.

from Per un pugno di samba
available on CD - Sonho de um carnaval (Universal France)



Five For Elis  performed by Elis Regina & Toots Thielemans  1969
Recommended by bobbyspacetroup [profile]

Well mostly just Toots on this track. A breezy, two-minute instro carried by Toots' whistling and a very rich, energetic arrangement. Very good stuff. There are a few other instrumentals on this (mostly) excellent disc, and this Thielemans original is easily my favorite.

from Aquarela Do Brasil (Philips), available on CD (Verve)



Roda  performed by Gilberto Gil  1967
Recommended by PappaWheelie [profile]

Post Bossa-Nova, Pre-Tropicalia, Brasilian Samba at it's finest!

from Louvação (PHILLIPS)
available on CD - Canta Brasil: Great Brazilian Songbook, # 1 (Verve)
