Viver Por Viver
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1968. Used
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! Arrangements are by Georges Lupin, who brings a bit of drama to the mix with fuller strings and woodwinds – which really helps ... CD

Studies In Bossa
Far Out (UK), 2011. Used
An excellent debut from Rio-raised, London-based Raf Vilar on Far Out – breezy, airy melodies and light arrangements with enough classic bossa craft to stand the test of time! Raf is the nephew of the legendary Ivan Conti, so it's safe to say that he's got this stuff in his blood, but fear ... CD

Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs
A wonderful 2CD set of rare work from Elis Regina – perfect for the fan who has everything! At this point, just about all of Elis' wonderful 60s and 70s albums for Philips have been issued on CD – but this package goes further than the albums, to include a wealth of rare material from ... CD

Batucada Fantastica Vol 3
Whatmusic (UK), Mid 60s. Used
Excellent work from Luciano Perrone & "Seus Ritmistas Brasileiros" – a crack percussion ensemble that recorded some of the best batucada work of the 60s! The album's recorded with a nice spacey sound that really adds to the "fantastica" feel of the set – as the ... CD

Brazsil
Blue Jackel, 1998. Used
A richly arranged set of tracks with a very jazzy feel, in a style that we might almost call a 90's updating of the classic early 70's work by Edu Lobo or Egberto Gismonti. Daniel Taubkin shares Lobo's ability to create large orchestrations that float lightly along through a range of styles, never ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Barclay (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy
A cool collection of work from the enigmatic Marpessa Dawn – an artist you might know best for her work in the film Black Orpheus – and a heck of a groovy singer as well! The style of the work is very much in the spirit of the film's famous soundtrack, but a bit more lyrical too – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Memoravel Samba
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2003. Used
A wonderful revival of classic samba tunes from the 30s through the 50s – done by Marcos Sacramento in a style that's spare, stripped-down, and very lively! The album's got an uncomplicated style that we really like – mostly just percussion, guitar, and Marcos' great vocals – ... CD

Coisa Boa
Luaka Bop, 2014. New Copy
A rich new chapter in the career of Moreno Veloso – a set that steps off strongly from his work with the +2 trio, but in ways that are even more personal and poetic than before! The shift is a bit like that time when Caetano Veloso took all his previous experiments and found a more intimate ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Far Out (UK), 2011/2013. New Copy 2 CDs
A great reworking of this sweet sweet album from Azymuth – served up in a package that features the core original album, plus all the great remixes that came afterward! The core record is heavy Fender Rhodes from Azymuth – sounding almost better here than we've heard them for years! ... CD

Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too!

Tudo
Portrait, 2014. New Copy
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! The album's easily one of the most interesting we've ever ... CD

Joia (with bonus tracks)
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Caetano Veloso in a wonderfully intimate mode – singing in this great spare setting that features only a bit of minimal instrumentation on guitar, percussion, and keyboards – a style that's very much in the best territory of his Qualquer Coisa record! Veloso's vocals are wonderful in ... CD

Sacundin Ben Samba
Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, ... CD

Capitol, Early 60s. Good+
This is the original US pressing of an album that was later issued by Capitol under a different name. Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty ...

Fly/Sire, 1989. Very Good
The first-ever record in the Luaka Bop legacy – a massive collection of Brazilian grooves that still serves as one of the best introductions to the music we can think of!

Philips (Brazil), 1970. Good+
Lively and hard-driving samba from Jair – filled with lots of percussion, and recorded with a spirited groove throughout! Don't let the title mislead you, because the album's not a bossa session – but if you like Jair's rootsier work, the album's a nice one. Titles in clude "Pra ... LP, Vinyl record album

Crystal Illusions
A&M, 1969. Near Mint-
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66!

Killer reissue that combines both of the albums that Airto recorded for Buddah in the early 70s!

Doris Monteiro (1970)
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1970. Used
Beautiful work from the lovely Doris Monteiro! Doris has a voice that sounds a lot like some of the big Brazilian divas of the early 60s – but she's recording here in a style that's slightly more modern and groovy – although still filled with a lot of influences from the early bossa ... CD

Bossa Nova Nova Bossa
Som Livre (Brazil), 1963. Used
Groovy bossa jazz from the great Manfredo Fest – working here on piano, organ, and saxophone – and hitting a variety of rhythms that change up nicely throughout the set! As on other records from the time, Manfredo's not content to just tipple along in the same pattern all the way ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Verve, 1966. Used
A killer set of grooves recorded live by this legendary Brazilian guitarist – and a record of his that we've always sold extremely well over the years! The setting is a stripped down stage at the Monterey Jazz Festival – where Sete grooves in an open-ended fashion with only bass and ... CD

Encontro
EMI (Brazil), 1966. Used
One of Brazil's greatest vocalists meets one of its hippest bossa combos! Pery Ribeiro was a singer with a pre-bossa style, but during the 60s, he really managed to pick up on the new mode of music – and turn his more romantic vocals into a sweetly grooving style that really worked with with ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1979. Used
Live work from Simone – caught at the height of her 70s powers, and recorded in a wonderfully dramatic setting! A smaller group with keyboards from Nelson Ayers is expanded by a fair bit of strings on stage – in an approach that's almost similar to that used by Maria Bethania on some ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Look Around
A&M, 1967. Used
Dreamy bossa pop from the A&M studios of the 60s – the Brasil 66 sound at its best! The style here is a perfect blend of real Brazilian influences and some of the hipper styles bubbling in the LA studio scene of the time – all locked together perfectly by Sergio Mendes, in the twin- ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
No Na Orelha
Sterns (UK), 2012. Used
A really compelling blend of sounds – and a set that's billed as a hip hop album, but which is way way more than that – more a wonderful hybrid of global styles, all wrapped up with the crispness of the contemporary Brazilian underground! The set begins with a number that's straight ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA (UK), 1965. New Copy
Darkly brilliant – and one of Joao Donato's most fantastic records! The set was recorded during Joao's time in America in the mid 60s – cut in New York with lofty backings by Claus Ogerman, in a pillowy soft mode that fits perfectly with Joao's light bossa piano lines, and which has ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
O LP
RCA (UK), 1964. New Copy
A landmark session of bossa jazz – about as great as you can get for the genre! This little beauty was recorded in 1964 – and it features work by some of Brazil's greatest bossa musicians of the time: Milton Banana on drums, Tenorio Jr on piano, Raulzinho on trombone, and Paulo Moura ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Windy
Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy
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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mocambo/Mr Bongo (UK), 1966. New Copy
Classic trio material from one of Brazil's greatest pianists ever! Dom Salvador was a heck of a player back in the 60s – working in a tight trio format that was certainly part of the bossa combo sound of his day, yet also heavily influenced by American soul jazz artists of the same era. ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Francisco
Ariola/Sony (UK), 1987. New Copy
Beautiful later work from the great Chico Buarque – an album that still shows him very much at the top of his game, and maturing into an even more wonderful artist than he was as a young man! The depth of songwriting is wonderful – expressive without over going too far over the top ... CD

Bicho (with bonus tracks)
Philips (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Sweetly jazzy, funky, and soulful work from Caetano Veloso – a great departure from some of his headier work of the early 70s – and proof that he still sounds great, even when in sweetly melodic territory! The album's got some full backings from Perinho Albuquerque, but the sound is ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Daybreak/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Sweet keyboard genius from the legendary Manfredo Fest – an early 70s effort that's got a really wonderful groove! The style here is a bit like some of the best CTI recordings during their early years with A&M – kind of an update of 60s bossa that features full, warm, jazzy ... CD

A&M, 1983. Very Good
Upbeat soul from Sergio Mendes – but a record that's still got a Brazilian heart beating underneath!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Biscoito Fino/DRG, 2013. New Copy
Right from the start, Maria Bethania showed herself as an artist who could almost shine better in a live setting than a studio one – from her early records, to famous albums that helped define the sound of MPB, to recent gems like this one – which has the singer still very much at the ... CD

Stone Flower
CTI, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI!

India
Philips (Japan), 1973. New Copy
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A very groovy group from Brazil – swinging with a mixed male/female harmony sound that's a lot like the Swingle Singers! Unlike the Swingles, though, Quarteto Forma sing pop hits of their day – both American and Brazilian ones – in a dreamy, jazzy, easy, and floating style that's ... CD
