Claude Challe's Buddha-Bar, Vol. II compilation has elements of Far Eastern spirituality, African song, European electronica, and Spanish spice. The first album, Buddha-Bar, is very mellow for the most part. Deepak Chopra and Demi Moore, far and away the most recognizable names on the album, do a spoken word ditty on love and self-worth. People who are not fans of new age doctrine will appreciate artists such as Oliver Shanti and Consuelo Luz, both of whom contribute songs that manage to sound musical, spiritual and ethnic at once. The second album varies from hallucinatory to groovy to fairly high-energy. "Tears Inshalla" will appeal to fans of Eastern-influenced trance. Lyrics are of almost no importance on the album…

Marcos Valle was the Renaissance man of Brazilian pop, a singer/songwriter/producer who straddled the country's music world from the early days of the bossa nova craze well into the fusion-soaked sound of '80s MPB. Though his reputation in America never quite compared to contemporaries like Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, or even Tom Ze, Valle is one of the most important and popular performers in the history of Brazilian pop.

First released in 1967, O Bidú is Jorge Ben's fifth full-length album. It is in many ways a typical album for Ben in the '60s, full of sweet, sincere, and mainly upbeat songs, with the music mixing samba with elements of bossa nova, swing, pop, and soul. Compared to many other works by Ben, the string and horn sections are used very sparsely. The tone of the album is set right from the start with the catchy opening track "Amor de Carnaval," one of the best songs Ben has ever written. "Frases," with its soft groove and neat lyrics, and "Toda Colorida" are two other highlights on this highly enjoyable album, whose only real flaw is its brief playing time (only just over 31 minutes).

Unlike his friend and fellow Brazilian musical legend, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, through the years, has had a strong tendency to follow the temporary shifts in styles and trends that occur within popular music. Because of this the music of Gil usually has sounded very up to date when it was released, but often his recordings haven't at all aged as gracefully as the timeless music of Caetano Veloso. The tracks on many of the albums of Gilberto Gil have also been of very uneven quality. Refavela is clearly one of the exceptions to this rule. Heavily inspired by traditional African and Afro-Brazilian sounds and rhythms, the songs on this album have aged very well indeed. The title of the album, Refavela, of course, refers to the slum quarters found in the large Brazilian cities, which are called favelas.

A mais cultuada banda da psicodelia pernambucana está de volta. 45 anos depois de seu emblemático disco de 1974, a AVE SANGRIA lança VENDAVAIS, novo álbum de inéditas em todas as plataformas digitais a partir de 26 de abril. Cultuados por uma novíssima geração, os integrantes originais MARCO POLO (voz, composições), ALMIR OLIVEIRA (voz, guitarra base, composições) e PAULO RAFAEL (guitarra solo e viola) se reuniram para traçar novos planos de voo. Estimulado por uma série de shows realizados pela banda a partir de 2013, O trio revirou o baú do tempo e de lá saíram dez incríveis canções inéditas, compostas no período de 1972-1974. As “novas” músicas mantém a proposta inicial da banda: unir o rock com ritmos nordestinos, mesclando a linguagem psicodélica com sonoridade contemporânea: “O repertório do novo álbum persegue as características recorrentes do grupo: do divertimento escrachado à morbidez de temas sombrios, da crítica social implacável ao mais delirante psicodelismo, da agressividade dos rocks pesados ao lirismo acústico das baladas” – diz o cantor Marco Polo.

Azymuth started their career back in the early 1970s when Marcos Valle invited them to record on a soundtrack LP in tribute to the Formula 1 racing driver Emerson Fittipaldi.One of the tracks was entitled Azimuth, and after the great success of this record in Brazil they asked Marcos if they could use it as the name for their band. This was the official start of Azymuth. At this point there was a fourth member, Ariovaldo - the percussionist of the group who died tragically in the mid-Seventies, throwing into question the continued existence of the band. Their first recording as a quartet was a four track EP with Polydor, which went on to be used in a successful novella (Brazilian soap opera). The records sales followed the massive popularity of the programme.

Three decades after Azymuth made their first tentative steps into bossa nova society, Brazilian Soul is a return to their blistering form of the early '80s. The new album sees them borrowing from the musical vocabulary that has always been one of the most exciting narratives of Brazilian music, as well as indulging their enthusiasm for new sounds that still makes them heroes and inspirations to a generation of 21st Century producers, from 4Hero to Masters At Work. They have linked up again with a truly great cast of celebrated Brazilian performers, some who were there at the genesis of Azymuth, and some who hitched a ride during the last 30 years – any history of Brazilian music that didn’t include names featured on the album like Roberto Menescal, Fabiola, Emilio Santiago and Marcio Lott wouldn’t be one to be trusted.

This fourth Azymuth album on Far Out Recordings was recorded in Rio De Janeiro and succeeds in re-capturing the authenticity, feeling and spirit of Azymuth's sound and their native city. The atmosphere on the album is mellow and reflective allowing this longpayer to pull in a new generation of fans yet manging to rekindle the atmosphere of Azymuth when they first formed in the early 70s.

Before you get to the remixes, the original album, which we are told has never been released outside of Brazil, is a spectacular collection of Latin jazz-funk samba tracks. The opening track, ‘Linha do Horizonte’ set the tone and it’s a track that went on to sell half a million copies due to its inclusion on a Brazilian soap opera. The rest of the album is just superb as the samba get psychedelic and funky and jazzy. Particularly loving ‘Montral City and ‘Caзa A Raposa’ but it’s all brilliant. Now it’s not often Gilles Peterson plays tracks more than once these days or even more that one track from an album. That’s not the case for the remix/re-edit CD here as he’s been hammering it.

This exquisite late-Renaissance Portuguese polyphonic repertoire is as richly expressive as it is politically poised…This beautiful new album from The Marian Consort is surely one of the best one-to-a-part ensemble recordings of this repertoire. Throughout the programme they nurture a warm blend while drawing out long polyphonic threads to expressive ends.

Incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto - a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine - all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact - but they're given a more spacious approach in the arrangements - strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley - in a groove that's simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao - and tracks include classic versions of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz", and "Zazueira" that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever - plus "Historia De Amor", "Where There's A Heartache", "Brazilian Tapestry", and "Wanting Things".
