was at a real dirty strip club in boston a month or two ago with some friends late at night, it was the local spot in the neighborhood my buddy is staying in, and we were coming home wasted at 2AM and decided to stop in. we were the only white boys in the place but it didn't seem to be an issue. most of the girls were in rough shape, some likely crackheads, some russian dude running the place grabbin money off the stage mid dance, and this one chick was straight pelvic smashing the small 5x5 4 inch high stage (plywood and 2x4s) at one point.

 

anyway, we sat through a few songs, had a beer, and i was about out of singles i got from the ten i broke at the bar, when this chick gets up on stage and does the most awkward dancing i ever saw. just lightly bouncing with her arms halfway into the chicken dance position and a blank expressionless face. it must have been her first night or something, some girls in the neighborhood told her she had the body and could make money or something, cause she also was probably the most wholesome and clean looking girl there. after a night of annoying pop songs, this girl comes out to tell it like it is. needless to say i was syked. my buddies were trying to leave but i had to stay til the end of the song and toss her all my remaining ones.

Red Clay and Gibraltar are two  of my favourite jazz tracks ever. check 'em in you don't know 'em He's a legend.

 

Damn, that Red Clay album is hot from start to finish. I like Cold Turkey a lot... Freddie is now on my hit list. Some times I get too focused on one group / musician, so I miss other great artists. It's like finding a strain of gold, you just keep digging in the same spot until you don't find any more gold...

I know what you mean, that's exactly what I did with Miles, then Herbie, then Zawinul, then George Duke and so on...

 

Thing is, these days I'm kind of reluctant to look too deeply into new (to me anyway) artists 'cos I know the damage it can do to my wallet. Fucking recession/crisis bullshit hitting me hard! I guess that's one advantage of not having any record stores within a 100km radius, no temptation. Just have to stay the fuck away from discogs & ebay to be safe.

yeah, I guess I should only buy them in person so I don't go too crazy. And these Jazz Cats have f-ing deep discographies...

That's dope... I'd love to see a girl dance to Tell It Like It Is.... she def deserved your singles.


I don't think anybody really listens to a bunch of the songs other people play on here.....

yo, STMB fam-- help me out.

 

i really wanna start exploring Brazilian music, but idk where to start.  i've been on a major bossa nova kick lately, but i have no clue about the genre (or any of the others in Brazilian music) beyond the few tracks i've heard in passing.  all i have in my library is some Sergio Mendes, an Azymuth album, a comp with dudes like Emilio Santiago, and that one lady that sings the "Aguas de Marco" track on those old Coke commercials.  so i need some recommendations from you guys...

 

Compilations are a good way to get into this shit. The Blue Brazil ones on Blue Note are a great introduction, loads of new artists to check out. There's an amazing one on Strut Records called Black Rio compiled by DJ Cliffy, some truly wonderful music on there.

 

And I would recommend putting down 20 bucks on this. Lots to listen to....

http://www.discogs.c...release/1312022

I was given a copy of Mr Bongo Brazilian Beats Volume 1 on wax, it may have been my introduction to Brazilian music. Once you get past the batacuda stuff (a bit too carnival-esque for me) there's some awesome tunes. This is the kind of thing i mean:

beautiful, just too damn short!

 

other wax from my shelves that i can heartily recommend:

http://www.discogs.c...0/master/323092

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w4eXasUsxc

 

Jorge Ben - Africa Brasil and Negro É Lindo are his best works imo

 

Arthur Verocai - already mentioned here, but idgaf cos it's an incredible album.

 

Azymuth - don't know which album you've got, but pretty much anything they've done is the shit. Even stuff from 2000's.

 

For some newer stuff, check out Far Out Records, top quality gear. I've got an album called Friends From Rio 2 (1998) that has some amazing bits on it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qbwLwefje0

 

Anyway, that should be enough to get you started.

Let us know what you end up grabbing and what you think of it.

thank you for the suggestions.  i have Crazy Rhythm btw...and yeah, i've picked up a couple comps off of certain blogs and stuff, but nothing too crazy yet haha.  i know there are so many genres of Brazilian music, so i probably should've been more specific: i dig all of it, and i'll eventually get to other stuff, but for like right now this is the kinda stuff i've been fiending for.

nice & mellow, it reminds me of Jorge Ben a bit, especially the 'Ben' lp.

I'm not all that familiar with the different genres either, I mostly just group it all together as 'Brazilian' in itunes anyway.

Delco turned me onto Gilles Peterson, so I would say check out his Youtube channel. I just received my pre-order of his Brasil Bam Bam Bam which seems like a great place to start for me. I'll let you know after a few listens.

You should definitely check out Elis Regina's 1966 album 'Elis', one of my favorite albums ever.



Also the slow tracks are incredible, especially this one:

yo, STMB fam-- help me out.

 

I got stop with the Jazz, but I can't stop, ...won't stop.

 

I got a CTI Cool Revolution Box set today, and man is it a gorgeous CD box set that looks like a record. Since it is on eBay for around $15 used, Amazon for $25 new, and has over 4 hours of music, it is a steal.

 

I thought of your post when I read this on AllMusic: "Disc three further preserves Taylor’s legacy as the one who brought Brazilian music to the U.S., when he was with Verve in the early ‘60s. Releases from Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Deodato, and Airto are showcased, while Turrentine’s version of Nascimento’s “Salt Song” also features the latter two, both of whom were present during dozens of CTI sessions." http://www.allmusic....on-mw0002041250

 

EDIT: One of the tracks:

CTI... gotta love those glossy gatefolds!

 

This reminds me of a PB Wolf interview that he talks about meeting Bob James, and praises James' "Nautilus" and its impact on sample based music. James replied to Wolf in a lackluster manner playing the infamous Nautilus down.

Anyone know this specific interview?

Greatly appreciated.

 

Yo Dirty Cyclist - how is Brasil Bam Bam Bam?
