New Clarice AssadImaginarium ... CD
Adventure Music, 2014. Used ... $7.99

One of the most personal albums we've heard in years from Maria Bethania – a set that's got a quietly intimate vibe, one that really lives up to the spirit of the title – a place where Bethania can be herself and share some of her innermost thoughts!

Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2011. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Maria Bethania's one of those artists who just seems to get better and better with time – already mature in her youth, and tremendously powerful in these later years – working with a depth of feeling that few of her contemporaries can match!

New Karol ConkaBatukfreak ... CD
Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. Used ... $9.99
Beat-heavy Brazilian work from Karol Conka – a set that's got some of the same urban vibe of the baile beat work of a few years back, but which also focuses the energy into a tighter, more compact R&B groove! Karol rhymes her way along the groove, but at a pace that's a bit more laidback ... read more CD

New Astrud GilbertoWindy ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the hardest to find Astrud Gilberto records on Verve – and one of the best! Deodato, Don Sebesky, and Pat Williams did the arrangements – and the sound here is a bit different than some of the straighter Gilberto sets of the time – still very bossa-inspired, but also in a ... read more CD

New Bebel GilbertoTanto Tempo (Six Degrees pressing) ... CD
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2000. Used ... $2.99
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

New Bebel GilbertoTudo ... CD
Portrait, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
Bebel Gilberto's really grown a lot over the years – and here, she emerges strongly as a fully-formed artist with a voice that's all her own – and a style that doesn't need to rest on the laurels of her famous family legacy!

New Antonio Carlos JobimTerra Brasilis ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Pretty great stuff from Jobim – later than the classic years, but with a dark sophisticated sound that's pretty darn compelling. The album features larger orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, and in a way, it's similar to the Jobim album on Decca from 1973 – in that it's got all the simple ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New LenineNa Pressao ... CD
Sony (UK), 1999. New Copy ... $8.99

Okeh, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
Some of the freshest music we've heard from Sergio Mendes in years – a set that brings him back to the funky, soulful territory he explored in the late 70s, but with a very contemporary vibe!

New Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Equinox ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1967. Used ... $8.99
The second album by Sergio and crew – and a real push forward for the group! The basic format of two-female harmony leads is still in place – but for some reason, this album gives a bit more of a nod to Brazilian roots than before, and really spices things up with an even more ... read more CD

New Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Stillness ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even ... read more CD

New Miucha & Antonio Carlos JobimMiucha & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... CD
RCA/Sony (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99
A pretty darn sweet vocal session from the duo of Miucha and Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded with lots of bossa overtones, very much the same spirit as the legendary Elis & Tom album of the mid 70s! Chico Buarque participates in the session, and Jobim even lends his vocal talents to a ... read more CD

RCA/Sony (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99

Certainly one of the greatest albums by this excellent (and oft-overlooked!) group from the 70s!

New SimoneAmar ... LP
CBS, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
An album with a love-styled title, but one that's a lot darker than you might expect – put together with some of the moodier undercurrents you might find in the work of Maria Bethania, although with Simone's own sense of musical balance overall. The album's got a somber, serious approach at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic! This lost late-60s album by Marcos Valle is a real treasure, and it offers a musical bridge between his earlier bossa nova material, and his later, more experimental work!

New Geraldo VesparNew Breeze From Brazil ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Mellow bossa guitar – in the tradition of Bonfa or Gilberto, but lacking the same sort of soul. Not bad, but kind of a "cash in on the big names" release by Capitol – although the record was originally recorded in Brazil, so it's at least got some sort of cred. Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
