One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s ... read more CD

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the loveliest albums we've ever heard from Brazilian singer Doris Monteiro – a blend of electric arrangements with some sparer, rootsier elements – handled by Gerald Vespar, in a style that's quite unique!

EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $16.99
Beautiful work from the lovely Doris Monteiro!

Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A lot smoother than most of Airto's other work – and almost more of a soul record than a jazz one – but also a great batch of grooves with a really spirited feel! Airto's percussion is still relatively up front in the mix, and smooth funky LA arrangements take the album to a warm ... read more CD

A nice late 70s mix of MPB and samba – put together with the rootsy feel of the latter, but also some of the more creative song styles of the former! There's a tightness here that's unusual for a samba record – especially at the time – and although the instrumentation features ... read more CD
