Bebel GilbertoTanto Tempo (Six Degrees pressing) ... CD
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2000. Used ... $4.99
In a world of supposed crossover Brazilian projects that have mostly lost their roots, the music of Bebel Gilberto is surprisingly refreshing! This daughter of Joao Gilberto (not Astrud) sings in a manner that's in keeping with the classic bossa divas of years past – but she works here in ... read more CD

One of the coolest, most unusual groups to ever record for the legendary Elenco label – and one with a very unique sound overall! At some points, the group share a harmony sound with bossa contemporaries like MPB4 or Tamba Trio – but at others, they take off wildly – with a ... read more CD

New Luiz HenriqueA Bossa Moderna De Luiz Henrique (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $32.99
The title is perfect for the sound of this early set from Luiz Henrique – as the music is definitely the modern bossa promised in the title, and almost even groovier than some of Henrique's later American work for Verve! Luiz sings and plays guitar throughout – and often hits this ... read more CD

An excellent collaboration between two of Verve's best Brazilian artists of the late 60s – the groovy organist Walter Wanderley, and the breezy breathy vocalist Luiz Henrique!

EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
One of our favorite records ever from Toninho Horta – a set that's got an airy brilliance that goes beyond most of his other albums! The sound here is amazing – kind of a jazzy extension of territory explored by Milton Nascimento a few years before – served up with a warmly ... read more CD

EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also ... read more CD

Killer live work from Seu Jorge – one of his boldest, proudest records to date – and that's saying a lot, given the soulful promise of all his other work! We've always loved Jorge, but we first really fell in love with his music in a live setting – where he's got an undeniable ... read more CD

New JoyceEncontro Marcado ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Damn – what a great album! This is Joyce's second solo album – and it's a landmark in Brazilian music, stretching way past the bossa styles of her first release, into a groove that's free, jazzy, and open-ended, a real shift towards the genius of her work in the 70s and 80s. ... read more CD

Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
The first album by Joyce – one of our favorite Brazilian singers ever! The album's a wonderfully lyrical batch of tracks – many written by Joyce herself, plus a few by Brazilian songwriters Jards Macale, Toninho Horta, and Marcos Valle – and the orchestrations are by Gaya, and ... read more CD

JoyceMusic Inside ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few Joyce albums ever issued in the US – a breezy outing from the end of the 80s, recorded with a bit more jazz than usual, and a number of English-language lyrics that were clearly intended to help break her into a wider market! Joyce is still very much in a comfortable setting ... read more CD

Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... read more CD

Nara LeaoDez Anos Depois ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A haunting 1971 session by Nara Leao – and one that has a moody European take on the bossa!

Nara LeaoMeu Primeiro Amor ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Light and lovely tunes from Nara Leao – a sweet mid 70s session that's filled with great vocals and a fair bit of acoustic guitar! The sound here isn't nearly as dark as Leao's work of the 60s – and even as some of her albums from a few years before – but the record's still rich ... read more CD

Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... read more CD

One of Nara Leao's later bossa gems – done in a real return to basics, and with some great help here from Roberto Menescal!
