Paula Morelenbaum's Telecoteco is one of the most subtle, original and successful tributes to Bossa Nova to come out of Brazil in recent years. It also made the top 10 list of 2008 albums compiled by renowned Brazilian newspaper O Globo.
Telecoteco presents itself as somewhat of a free essay on modern pop music in Brazil. Thus, its repertoire emerges like a proposal on the fundamentals of Brazilian songwriting: diversity of styles and nationalities with an openness towards influences and modernization. In essence, Telecoteco brings to the forefront the wide range, the crossover, the invention, the simplicity, the sophistication, the popular alongside the classical and the passion right next to the irony…

Gabriela Anders got her big break singing a duet with soft jazz giant Michael Franks, and like that new age patriarch, Anders wraps laid-back vocals around even more tranquil rhythms. It's all very calming and proficient and breezy. Wanting, her debut album, mixes bits of her Argentine heritage with late-'70s California jazz, so Brazilian music coasts along with soft and hazy saxophone fills and tapping percussion leads. It all can be very pretty, as the opening "Fire of Love" represents Anders at her most relaxed and relaxing.

This 1976 album by the late saxophonist Stan Getz is a reunion of sorts with Joao Gilberto, the great Brazilian guitarist and singer, and the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim (or Tom Jobim), along with the stylish and nonintrusive arrangements of Oscar Carlos Neves. The trio changed the world in the early 1960s with its Getz/Gilberto albums. With Neves, they almost did it again, but with all of the crap falling down around them in the musical climate of the mid-'70s - fusion, disco, overblown rock, and the serious decline of jazz - this disc was criminally overlooked at the time…

Johnny Alf is one of the former Brazilian composers to fuse Jazz into Brazilian music. His strong Jazz accent made him be honored one of Bossa Nova founders. He composes and writes his own inspired lyrics. He also plays the piano in all his albums. Specially in this album he is backed by a full orchestra with the best musicians in the place, Rio de Janeiro, 1973. This is another of his best albums with a collection of such great standards which include slow ballad 'Nos', one of his smash hits in Brazil.

Few artists of any nation have created such a passionate and human statement on political themes as Waldemar Bastos, while at the same time, expertly explores musical styles from across the African continent, creating a sensual and sensational statement. From the opening track "Sofrimento," a tender lament for Angola, this singer/songwriter casts a spell that lingers long after the last note has faded.

Reunited (partially) in 2006 by the acclaim of their fans, Os Mutantes sound just as vital as they did back in 1968 on Haih…Ou Amortecedor…, their first record together in 30 years. Unfortunately, the original trio is only one-third represented. Specifically, there's no Rita Lee (who was replaced in 2006) and no Arnaldo Baptista (who appeared in the 2006 reunion but decided to continue as a solo act). Still, the band – now a seven-piece – gets songs from Tom Zé and Jorge Ben, as well as the band's prime songwriting linchpin, Sérgio Dias.

Saudade is a word with no direct English translation. In the Portuguese language it describes a sense of nostalgia for something that may never return. But in longing for that certain something, whether it’s a person, a place or a time gone by, saudade holds the thing you miss close, and keeps it present despite its absence. Portuguese author Manuel de Mello calls it “A pleasure you suffer, an ailment you enjoy.”

On After Dark, Halie's warm and sultry voice unites with a lighter, upbeat sound that incorporates a variety of Latin beats on such standards as Jobim's Waters of March and classics from other genres, such as jazzy versions of Joni Mitchell's Carey and Stevie Wonder's Happier Than the Morning Sun. Loren's originals are the gems of the album highlighting her songwriting talent and ability to merge pop sensibility with jazz intuition, while showcasing her diverse vocal renderings. Her ability to uniquely interpret jazz standards in Portuguese and French help to make this one of the most challenging and refreshing albums Loren has recorded to date. Halie Loren's definition of jazz is wide and deep and she has the impressive vocal abilities to carry the listener across genres and eras with seamless, beautiful ease.

“Bicho Solto – O XIII” is funky, festive, danceable, without losing its Djavanish features. Together with the previous album, “Malásia”, “Bicho Solto” marks, in a certain way, Djavan´s 20th anniversary as a recording artist. And if the first one has a clear-cut and individual style, the last one also reveals the rejuvenation of the artist, a constant update of his music without losing his identity.
