New Antonio AdolfoAntonio Adolfo (1972) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of Brazil's grooviest arrangers ever – stepping out here in a rare 70s album that's even more seductive than his previous work! The style's got a vibe that's a bit hipper than some of Adolfo's bossa-baroque records – as you might guess from the image on the cover, which is a good ... read more CD

New Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
1965. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in ... read more CD

Jorge BenNegro E Lindo ... CD
1971. New Copy .... Around May 1, 2014
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai!

Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... CD
1975. New Copy .... Around May 1, 2014
A nice one from Jorge! The record's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got a groove that's somewhere between "Taj Mahal" and "Africa Brasil". Jorge's guitar work is nice and tight, and his vocals are, as always, extremely captivating. The tracks are short, choppy, ... read more CD

Chico BuarqueConstrucao ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. New Copy .... $14.99
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, ... read more CD
(Note: the CD has a few slight dips in sound at times, very brief and nothing major – and this is an issue with the original mastering of the record.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gal CostaCantar (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. Used .... $29.99
A beautiful Gal Costa record that isn't as crazy as her psychedelic recordings, but it more than makes up for it with some haunting arrangements by the likes of Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Joao Donato.

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the ... read more CD

Eumir DeodatoInutil Paisagem (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold .... $32.99
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Joao DonatoLugar Comum ... CD
1975. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots ... read more CD

Gilberto GilLouvacao (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1967. New Copy .... $22.99
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... read more CD
(Beautiful package, too – in a hardcover, book-like jacket!)
Also available Louvacao ... LP 24.99

New Luiz HenriqueA Bossa Moderna De Luiz Henrique (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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

New Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
1980. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
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

New Nara LeaoDez Anos Depois ... CD
1971. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
A haunting 1971 session by Nara Leao – and one that has a moody European take on the bossa!

1975. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
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/Think (Japan), 1968. New Copy .... $32.99
Great early work from singer Gracinha Leporace – a vocalist you might know from her later work in Bossa Rio, or her recordings with husband Sergio Mendes! Even at the start, Gracinha's a hell of a singer – a vocalist who's capable of all the coolness of the bossa era, yet still richly ... read more CD

Very groovy work from the lovely Claudette Soares!

1970. New Copy .... Around April 15, 2014 (delayed)
The 3rd album by Claudette Soares – and it's a doozy! The album was originally issued in 1970, and it's a blinding mix of post-bossa grooves and jazzy little backings with a light 60s touch.
