Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1977. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Tom Jobim (1979) ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1979. Used ... $7.99
This second collaboration between these two great talents is every bit as wonderful as the first – a great later set of bossa-revival work, done by Tom Jobim and Miucha in a similar mode to his earlier work with Elis Regina! The set was recorded in New York, with spacious production from the legendary Aloysio De Oliveira – and the result's a beautiful combination of lilting melody and warm vocals that shows that Jobim could still sound wonderful, even after his initial 60s classics. Chico Buarque and Joao Donato contribute to the magic, and titles include "Turma Do Funil (No Baixo Leblon)", "Triste Alegria", "Sublime Tortura", "Samba Do Carioca", "Falando De Amor", "No Cego", and "Dinheiro Em Penca".

New Chico Buarque & Ennio MorriconePer Un Pugno Di Samba ... CD
RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

VariousFocus On – Romantic Samba ... CD
BMG (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Although the thought's romantic, the music on this one's still quite lively – very much in a modern samba mode, with a focus on tunes from the BMG catalog of the past 25 years. There's a total of 15 tracks in all – and titles include "Danca Da Solidao" by Beth Carvalho, "Eu E Ela" by Grupo Raca, "Falsa Consideracao" by Marquinhos Sata, "O Teu Chamego" by Grupo Raca, "Ex Amor" by Martinho Da Vila, "Marrom Bombom" by Os Morenos, "Depois Do Prazer" by So Pra Contrariar, and "Anatomia" by Grupo Malicia.

New Alaide CostaCanta Suavemente ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Alaide Costa's second album – a dreamy batch of samba groovers and mellower tunes, all sung in her fantastically soulful voice! Alaide adds in a degree of rough emotion that really makes the tracks sparkle, and which gives them a simple honesty that sets them apart from some of the other more overblown Brazilian vocal records of the time – a quality that's almost like some of the samba work of the period, but served up with a bit more polish overall. Tracks include "Complicacao", "Historia De Nosaa Historia", "Ciume", "O Nosso Olhar", "Fim De Noite", "Discussao", "De Me O Braco", and "Jura De Pombo". CD

New Lisa OnoNamorada ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lisa Ono's a Japanese singer – but you'd never know it from this album, as she sings and plays guitar as lovely as Joyce! In fact, the record reminds us of some of the best Joyce work from the early 80s – with Lisa's sweet but soulful voice singing out strongly over a spare set of intimate arrangements that really make the album sound like a genuine bit of Brazil. Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ah! Se Eu Pudesse", "Minha Namorada", and "Quero Te Assim". CD

New Lisa OnoSerenata Carioca ... CD
BMG (Japan), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lisa Ono just can't miss! Not only does this Japanese singer have a wonderful way with the bossa, but she's also working with some top notch arrangements that are easily as great as anything coming out of Brazil in the modern bossa vein! The groups are peppered with great Brazilian players, but as always, it's Lisa's vocals that carry the set. Titles include "Borboleta", "Minha Casa", "Taiyo No Kodomotachi", "Flor Do Campo", "Primeiro Vapor", and "Lobo Do Mar". CD

EMI, 2002. Used ... $3.99
3 of Brazil's most important artists of the past 10 years team up in this Tribalistas project – a genre-blurring set of tracks that recalls similar efforts of the Tropicalista generation, updated to reflect the styles of the 3 artists involved, with some nice complicated production touches from Monte herself.

New Rosa PassosAmorosa ... CD
Sony, 2004. Used ... $4.99
Rosa's working here in a warm bossa-revival mode – singing and playing acoustic guitar mostly in a smaller group setting, but occasionally working with larger, lusher arrangements – in a sweet set of tracks that's both a tribute and a sequel to Joao Gilberto's legendary 1977 album Amoroso! Players on the set include saxophonist Rodrigo Ursaia, and pianist Helio Alves – whose gentle keys makes for a great accompaniment to Rosa's mellow take on the tunes. Titles include "Wave", "Besame Mucho", "Voice Vai Ver", "Essa E Pro Joao", "S'Wonderful", "Que Reste-t-il De Nos Amours", "Eu Sambo Mesmo", and "O Pato". CD

Caetano Veloso & Gilberto GilTropicalia 2 (US pressing) ... CD
Philips, 1993. Used ... $7.99
Well, it's not the 60s anymore – but this is still a wonderful album that reunites Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil in the spirit of their Tropicalia years – done in a style that shows that creative invention was still alive in MPB during the 90s! There's echoes here of modes to come by artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Lenine, or Chico Science – all of whom are clearly influenced by the spirit of Veloso and Gil. Acoustic guitars mix with rhythm samples and abstract production – and Caetano and Gil's vocals shine as wonderfully as ever – possibly even more so, given the warmth that comes from their age. Titles include "Cinema Novo", "Nossa Gente", "Dada", "Aboio", "Baiao Atemporal", "As Coisas", "Rap Popcreto", and a version of Jimi Hendrix's "Wait Until Tomorrow". CD
