Adventure Music, 2013. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful tribute to the music of Egberto Gismonti and Hermeto Pascoal – but presented in a fresh style that's very different than the originals! Gismonti and Pascoal were two of Brazil's most inventive composer/musicians of the 70s – both very open to new sounds, new rhythms, and ... read more CD

DemetriusViver Por Viver ... CD
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1968. Used ... $8.99
Newly serious work from Demetrius – a record that has him shedding some of the rock idol mode of previous albums, and moving into slightly mature male pop!

DeodatoO Som Dos Catedraticos (plus bonus track) ... CD
Equipe/Bomba (Japan), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Killer early work from Eumir Deodato – all done in an organ-heavy groove that's quite similar to Walter Wanderley's best from the time!

Sublime early work from the legendary Deodato – organ-based bossa jazz, done in a style that's quite different from his funky keyboard records of the 70s!

Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
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

DjavanSeduzir ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
Spare, simple work from Djavan – the kind of soulful set that made him one of the most dramatic mainstream talents in Brazil at the start of the 80s – and one of the few of his generation to reach out to a larger global market! The album's got a very Milton Nascimento sort of vibe ... read more CD
