Tamba TrioAvanco ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A seminal set from one of the greatest bossa combos ever – a group who could boast sharp instrumentation and warm vocal harmonies too! The mix of sounds is completely sublime – jazzy piano trio sounds at the core, topped by soaring harmonies from the members of the trio – a combination the group pioneered with this legendary album – and helped set a whole new standard for the bossa nova generation! Luiz Eca heads up the group on arrangements and piano – with percussion from Helcio Milito, bass and reeds from Bebeto, and just a bit of guest guitar from Durval Ferreira – on killer cuts that include "Batucada", "Sonho De Maria", "Mas Que Nada", "Moca Flor", "O Samba Da Minha Terra", and "Rio".

Tamba TrioMiraculous Tamba Trio (Tempo/Tamba Trio/Avanco) ... CD
Philips/El (Brazil), 1962/1963/1964/1966. New Copy ... $13.99
Nearly 3 albums' worth of music from the legendary Tamba Trio – one of the grooviest groups in the 60s bossa years in Brazil! The trio are quite unique – in that they not only play upbeat bossa rhythms, but also harmonize along with their grooves – in a soaringly sublime quality that really electrifies the tunes! Most of their lyrics are jazzy and somewhat scatted – kind of an added layer of music on top of the core jamming of piano, bass, and drums – and the production on these key 60s sides really helps their sound hit just the right level – a heavenly sound that's occasionally augmented by added percussion, flute, or guitar. The CD is one of the best introductions to their work we've ever seen – as it features material from the 60s albums Tempo, Tamba Trio, and Avanco, plus the rare Brasil Saluda A Mexico single – a whopping 26 tracks in all, with titles that include "Reza", "Tamba", "Batida Diferente", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Nos E O Mar", "O Amor Que Acabou", "Tristeza De Nos Dois", "Negro", "Rio", "Yansa", "Moto Continuo", "Barumba", "Danielle", "Pregao", "Boranda", "Consolacion", and "Morte De Um Deus De Sal".

Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of Helio Delmiro, Ivan Lins, Toninho Horta, Danilo Caymmi, and Joao Bosco – each of whom play a bit of guitar on the record, the last of whom also sings a bit of guest vocals too! Luiz Eca handled the arrangements, all with that subtle sense of sophistication that we've always loved in the group – even more mature here than in the 60s, and with a sound that's totally great. Titles include "3 Horas Da Manha", "Visgo De Jaca", "Beira Mar", "Chorinho No 1", "Jogo Da Vida", "Sanguessuga", and "Beijo Partido". CD

New Joao Mello with Tamba TrioA Bossa Do Balanco (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked singer from 60s Brazil – working here with some great bossa backings from the Tamba Trio! The trio usually sing on their own early records, but they step aside on the vocal tip, and let Joao handle all the lyrics on the set – while they provide their own great instrumentation arranged by Luiz Eca, who's got a way of mixing melancholy moods with subtle bossa grooves! Joao Mello plays a bit of guitar alongside his vocals, and the record also features this haunting flute work from bassist Bebeto – whose lines really complete the moody feel of the record. Titles include "Jogado For a", "Um Sonho Para Dois", "Gostoso E Sambar", "Voce Vai", "Faz De Conta", "O Maior Nao", and "Amor E Paz". CD

New Tamba TrioTempo (limited hardbox version) ... CD
Philips/Universal Sound (UK), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The stuff of legend – and one of the greatest albums ever from Brazil's Tamba Trio! The group have a sound here that goes way beyond standard bossa jazz – in that amidst the piano, bass, and drums, the trio also harmonize vocally too – swirling together the lyrics, which are often wordless, in these cool jazz riffs that are really amazing – soaring out above the instrumentation, to create a whole new layer of grooves! Arrangements are by the group's pianist, Luiz Eca – who really reaches a high point in his musical development here – and titles include the classics "Boranda", "Barumba", and "Consalacao" – plus "Yansa", "Moto Continuo", "Nuvens", and "Pregao".

Hi-Lo'sHi-Lo's Happen To Bossa Nova ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $18.99
One of the grooviest albums ever made by this great jazz vocal group – and a record that's darn impossible to find on wax! The Hi Lo's here hit the bossa craze of the 60's, and they turn their vocal harmonies to a Brazilian groove, in sort of a roundabout recognition of the way that their style was taken over by Brazilian groups like Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy. The record has lots of cool cheesy vocal tracks with a nice groove – even if the bossa part isn't too authentic – and the track list includes cuts like "O Pato", "Gold Brazilian Sun", "One Note Samba", and "Carnaval". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with deep groove. Side 2 has marks that click on tracks two and three. Cover has some wear, seam splitting, and light stains, with an ink stamp on the back.)

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

New JoyceEncontro Marcado ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Damn – what a great album! This is Joyce's second solo album – and it's a landmark in Brazilian music, stretching way past the bossa styles of her first release, into a groove that's free, jazzy, and open-ended, a real shift towards the genius of her work in the 70s and 80s. Arrangements are by Luiz Eca of the Tamba Trio – and they have a complicated jazzy approach that really lets Joyce open up as a singer, moving into the sort of territory that you'd expect from artists like Marcos Valle or Elis Regina. The album's a real gem, and it's so rare that it hardly got any global circulation at the time – despite Joyce's later fame at a worldwide level. Titles include "Adam Adam", "Encontro Marcado", "Bom Dia", "Longe Do Tempo", "Asa Branca", "Como Vai, Vai Bem", "Caminho Pro Sol", and "Preparando Um Luminoso". CD

Carlos LyraDepois Do Carnaval ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
A great early album of bossa work from the legendary Carlos Lyra – caught here at his youthful prime, and working with sublime arrangements from Luiz Eca! The record's easily one of Lyra's best from the early years – and Eca's group the Tamba Trio guest star on a few tunes – playing with a jazzy tinge that's totally wonderful. A young Nara Leao also makes an appearance on the record – and titles include "Sem Saida", "Quem Quizer Encontrar O Amor", "Gostar Ou Nao Gostar", "Depois Do Carnaval", and his classic "Influencia Do Jazz", an ironic track about the influence of jazz on Brazilian music!

Ana MargaridaAna Margarida (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Forma/Think (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $32.99
Stunning sounds from the lovely Ana Margarida – heard here on a rare outing for the legendary Forma label! The set's got some qualities that link it to the bossa material from Brazil at the time, but it's also got a much deeper sense of arrangement and presentation too – thanks to the mindblowing musical talents of Luiz Eca! Eca brings in approaches that might be more common in European work of the period, and blends these with some more familiar Brazilian modes – all to give the record a sense of majesty that takes Ana's vocals way past the usual bossa standards. The set's got some great instrumental elements – including work by both the Tamba Trio and Quinteto Villa Lobos – plus a big bank of cellos that's used on a few numbers to underscore melancholy elements in the music. Titles include "Maysa", "Das Rosas", "Canto Livre", "Minha Namorada", and "Porque Tinha De Ser" – all familiar numbers, but done in some really amazing arrangements! CD

Mitchell-Ruff TrioAfter This Message ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most interesting records from the duo of Dwike Mitchell and Willie Ruff – thanks to the addition of the great percussionist Helicio Milito on drums! Helcio worked with the Tamba Trio, and has a very groovy sense of rhythm that works great with the inventive piano of Mitchell and mixture of bass and French horn from Ruff – instrumentation that's somewhere in the same playful spirit as the Ramsey Lewis group with Redd Holt and Eldee Young, but tuned towards very different directions here. Like the Lewis trio, these guys shoe that the piano need not always be the lead instrument – as things round out in very compelling ways over tracks that include "Young Soul", "After This Message", "Chou Chou", "Love", "Improvisation On Solo For Unaccompanied Bass", and "The Prank".

New Milton NascimentoMilton Nascimento (1969) ... CD
Odeon/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Maybe one of the first truly brilliant albums from Milton Nascimento – a set that builds on the excellent previous work by the singer/songwriter, but which also has him moving into much more soulful territory as well! Nascimento's work is one of the true treasures of Brazilian music of the past 50 years – and here, it finds a perfect place between larger arrangements, jazzy inflections, and some earthier instrumental touches that keep him tied to the earth – a really careful balance of modes that Milton would not only explore more deeply on key albums to come, but which would become a touchstone for a whole generation of artists as well. The arrangements are wonderful – done by Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame) and saxophonist Paulo Moura – and songs include originals by Milton, plus titles by Dori Cayammi, Toninho Horta, Fernando Brant, and Marcio Borges. Titles include "Sentinela", "Tarde", "Pai Grande", "Quatro Luas", and "Sunset Marquis 333 Los Angeles". CD

Os GatosOs Gatos ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
An album of incomparable beauty – one of the two rare albums cut by this legendary group during the 60s, and a bossa nova masterpiece all the way through! The work is guided by a young Deodato – who's moving here into much more complicated territory than his early organ jazz records – a spacious sort of sound that really marks him as one of the most inventive talents of the mid 60s bossa era! The arrangements are light, and spacious – and leave plenty of room for individual voices to float through the mix – including key piano, saxophone, or trombone passages, plus some occasional harmony vocals – which resonate with the force of work by Tamba Trio at times. The whole thing's fantastic – and titles include "Nuvens", "Sambidu", "A Chuva", "O Show E O Meu Rio", "Novo Sol", and "Razao De Viver". CD

Os Tres Brasileiros (aka Os Tres Morais)Brazil LXIX ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent work from Os Tres Brasileiros – better known in Brazil as Os Tres Morais! The group, like many, were a Brazilian ensemble who recorded in America under a different name – one that might be more "catchy" for the American audiences – but apart from that shift, their music is all authentic all the way – with a wonderful harmony vocal sound that follows in the tradition of Quarteto Em Cy or Tamba Trio! Even better, the album has an organist backing the group up – with sweet bubbling notes that sound a lot like the work of Walter Wanderley, and which give the album an even nicer groovy touch! The whole thing's incredible – a real treat all the way through, with great originals like "Sambamor", "Jequi-Bach", "Outono", and "Brincando De Samba" – plus sweet covers like "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Moon River", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile".

Quarteto Em CyAleluia 1964 to 1966 (Som Definitivo plus bonus tracks) ... CD

One of the greatest collections of work we've ever seen from Quarteto Em Cy – a CD that features their entire Som Definitivo album from 1964, plus 18 more bonus tracks pulled from two other albums! Som Definitivo is an incredible album – one in which the Brazilian female harmony quartet meets up with their male counterparts, the Tamba Trio! The gals have most of the vocals on this set, but backings are in the sublimely modern mode that the Tamba combo was using at the time, set to arrangements by Luiz Eca, the group's pianist – and soaring with a great blend of jazz and bossa elements! The whole thing's a landmark in the Brazilian scene of the time – with edges that are dark and sweet at the same time – and a depth of sound that's really tremendous. Titles include "O Mar E Meu Chao", "Se Voce Pensar", "Imagem", "Zambi", "Arrastao", and "Vim Da Bahia". Bonus tracks on the set are pulled from the 1964 and 1966 albums titled Quarteto Em Cy – also issued on Elenco – and titles include "O Trem", "Barravento", "Nana", "Vida Ruim", "Mascarada", "Resolucao", "Caminho Do Mar", "Canto De Ossanha", "Samba Torto", "Ate Londres", and "Pedro Pedreiro".

An incredible album by the Tamba 4 – one of 2 albums the Brazilian bossa combo did in the US for A&M Records, during the brief time when they were expanded to a quartet from the original Tamba Trio lineup! The set is completely sublime – a wonderful mix of the group's trademark harmony vocals and crackling bossa rhythms, with the warmly flowing CTI production style of the time – not funky like the CTI sound of the 70s, but a bit more sophisticated than the style Creed Taylor had been using earlier at Verve. Tracks are short, breezy, and often very lively – bossa grooving warmed in the California sun – and titles include "Samba Blim", "Watch What Happens", "Pregao", "San Salvador", "Know It All", and "Palladium".

Late harmony vocals from the 60s bossa scene in Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this obscure trio, but a set we'd put right up there next to the best work by Tamba Trio or MBP4! Like both of those groups, these guys have a style that's rooted in jazz harmony modes from the previous American generation – but taken forward strongly with lots of sublime new ideas from both the bossa nova years, and the richly experimental scene at Elenco Records! The group get musical direction from both Nara Leao and Sidney Miller – and the tunes have this soaring sound and jazzy energy that's really wonderful – sometimes groovy and rhythmic, sometimes with the lofty qualities of early Egberto Gismonti recordings. Titles include "Recado", "A Sobrinha Da Judite", "Ze Da Tuba", "Era De Madrugada", "Deus Vos Salve Esta Casa Santa", "Odeon", and "Faustina". CD

EMI/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet groover from 70s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this harmony group – a male/female sextet that mixes warm vocals with lively samba rhythms! The approach is fantastic, and unique – different than the breezier feel of bossa nova harmony groups, and with some rootsy elements in the rhythms – which creates a vibe that's very fresh, and which suits the vocals beautifully! Arrangements are by Luis Avelar, and a nice current of jazz runs through the work – clearly that influence from American harmony groups picked up by Tamba Trio and Quarteto Em Cy – but used here in a nicely different way. Titles include "To Aqui Te Esperando", "O Trenzinho Caipira", "Lado Do Avesso", "Bela Bela", "Sabor Impune", and "Tomara". CD

Varese, 1950s/1996. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Before Free Design, before the Tamba Trio, before the Beach Boys, before the Four Freshmen, the Hi-Los were cooking up the jazzy harmony style that would influence generations of singers. Led by Gene Puerling, who would later go onto form the spooky Singers Unlimited, the youthful Hi-Los had a sound and a style that was nothing short of incredible. Their harmonies were amazing, and they brought a jazzy style to the vocal group scene that blew away all of the hokier groups, like The Four Aces, and other groups of that ilk. This comp's got 18 tracks from the albums The Hi-Lo's I Presume, The Hi-Lo's On Hand, The Hi-Lo's, and The Hi-Lo's Under Glass – with titles like "Skylark", "Lulu's Back In Town", "Too Young For The Blues", and "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

Gracinha Leporace is in the group, amidst some other male and female vocalists – and most numbers feature one or two singers stepping out in the lead – with some very cool backing instrumentation from Oscar Castro Neves and Durval Ferreira!

Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A blistering set of bossa-tinged jazz – truly the cream of the crop of the Brazilian scene from the 60s and early 70s! The package is great both as an introduction to bossa jazz, and as a capper if you've ever heard any of the genre – an essential collection that not only features key tracks, but some rare gems as well – beautifully packaged, and remastered with sound that's way better than any of your old scratchy records! The approach here is wonderful – quick-stepping rhythms, soaring instrumentation, and a way of putting together a groove that's quite different than American or European jazz at the time – even during those eras when bossa was having a strong influence upon those scenes. And sure, in later years, some Brazilian-inspired projects from other territories could sometimes be a bit weak – but these cuts are the originals, and are filled with life, imagination, and originality that oozes forth from the very first note! 2CD package is beautifully put together, with a nice booklet too – and titles include "Birimbau" by Dom Um Romaeo, "Xibaba" by Airto, "San Salvador" by Tamba 4, "A3" by Som Imaginario, "Solo" by Meirelles E Os Copa 5, "Improviso Negro" by Sambalanco Trio, "Vento Bravo" by Edu Lobo, "Batucada" by Luis Carlos Vinhas, "Consolacao" by Tenorio Jr, "Like A Rainy Night" by Salinas, "Zazueira" by Balanco Trio, "Das Tardes Mas Sos" by Paulo Moura, "Bebe" by Eumir Deodato, and "Patumbalacunde" by Joao Donato.

New VariousBossa Nova Happiness ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty to be happy about here – a sweet set of classic bossa tracks from the 60s, and one of the first to equally mix gems from the vaults of both Universal and EMI Records! The recent merger of the musical giants means that Blue Note tracks sit next to Verve numbers from the US, and older Brazilian recordings on labels like Odeon or Elenco – more than enough music to make a mighty great selection of music! The set also features a few numbers of more recent vintage – and titles include "The Dolphin" by Bill Evans, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Sambou Sambou" by Doris Monteiro, "Monsieur Binot" by Joyce, "Soul Bossa Nova" by Quincy Jones, "Chup Chup I Got Away" by Marcos Valle, "We & The Sea" by Tamba 4, "Dindi" by Sylvia Telles, "Summer Samba" by Walter Wanderley, "Upa Nequinho" by Duke Pearson, "Wave" by Ron Carter, and "Inutil Paisagem" by Milton Banana Trio.

New VariousForma – A Grande Musica Brasileira ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), Mid 60s/1995. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Stunning 3 set compiling material from Roberto Quartin's legendary Forma label, home to some of the greatest Brazilian talents of the 60's, like Jobim, Edu Lobo, Quarteto Em Cy, Baden Powell, Tamba Trio, Luiz Eca, Victor Assis Brasil, Moacir Santos, Bossatres, and others. This set's a masterful assortment of bossa, jazz, and vocal tracks from the label – including tracks from Baden Powell & Vinicius de Moraes' lost Afro-Sambas LP! Quartin remastered the whole set himself, and the sound quality is fantastic. We can't recommend this highly enough – either to folks just getting into the bossa jazz scene, or to longtime fans who can't get this material otherwise, and in this good of shape! CD

New Grupo ManifestoManifesto Musical (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Elenco/Think (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album by this obscure and groovy early MPB-ish group – done in a great style that features with a range of voices laid out over some crazy off-kilter arrangements! The album's got mostly a bossa/samba feel, and in the same vein as Quarteto Em Cy or Tamba Trio, but with more space in the recording, and some great unique material. Grupo Manifesto were certainly one of the more obscure groups from the time, but they're right up there with other faves from the post bossa era, and with the same high quality as the best artists on the Elenco label. The album's got a crazy cover, like most of the Elenco records – and features the tracks "Manifesto", "O Mundo E Nosso", "Garota Esquerdinha", "Brasil Da Samba", and "Cabra Macho". CD
