One of a great run of 70s albums from the legendary Joao Bosco – and one of the best of his work with writing partner Aldir Blanc! The style here is jazzy samba, with maybe a slightly rootsier feel than some of Bosco's later work – a quality that keeps things really up-close and warm ... CD

Discobertas (Brazil), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD
The box has "bossa nova" in the title, but Agostinho Dos Santos is the kind of singer who also offers up what came before the bossa as well – a wonderful male singer from Brazil, and one who really bridges the sound of different generations with these records! The approach is ... CD

A stunning live set from Jorge Mautner – and maybe a record that's even better than some of his studio albums of the time! Jorge's a stunning talent here – a great inheritor of the experiments put forth during the Tropicalia movement, but also able to work with some of the rootsier, ... CD

A E O Z
Universal (Brazil), 1973. New Copy
A real turn in direction for Os Mutantes – working here in the early 70s without Rita Lee, and in a vein that's much more progressive overall! The album's still got plenty of playful twists and turns, but the overall songs are quite long and often jamming – making strong use of the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

Premier (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used
A simply groooooovy collection of rare bossa tunes! The set goes farther than the first volume in the series – dipping into a wide range of material that includes Brazilian albums from the 60s, but also some more obscure American and European sources, which gives the set a slightly expanded ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ponta De Rama
Amazon (Brazil), 1980. Used

Sambas De Bossa
BMG (Brazil), 1970s/1993. Used
Tight bossa tracks from one of Brazil's best drummers! We've got to admit, we're not exactly sure when this one's from. Although the copyright date says 1993, we think that this stuff's from the 70s from the production sound – and has been repackaged in a dateless compilation by RCA. The ... CD

A haunting live set from Baden – recorded in 1990 at the Rio Jazz Club, and featuring Baden playing solo guitar in the moody style he used often in his later work. Baden's style of playing is much more contemplative than in the bossa years – picking up some of the darkness of the Afro ... CD

Odeon (Brazil), 1967. Used
One of the most important early albums by Marcos Valle – a set of instrumental tracks recorded with lots of acoustic guitar! Even though Valle was well known as a singer and composer of bossa nova tunes, the set instead focuses on his instrumental work – recording his guitar ala Jobim ... CD

Disco
Radar (Brazil), 2014. New Copy
Not disco like you'd hear in a nightclub in the 70s, but a record that shows the continuing creativity of Arnaldo Antunes – easily one of the best Brazilian songwriters of the past decade or so! The album's a bit more straightforward musically than some of Antunes' earliest recordings, but ... CD
