A collection of two wonderful early 70s albums from Tom Ze, recorded just after the Tropicalia years! Estundando O Samba is one of Tom Ze's best albums ever – a fantastic blend of post-Tropicalia styles – and it features some strange arrangements that perfectly illustrated Ze's insane approach to songwriting. As with much of Ze's music, the actual sound is incredibly hard to describe – and the album bristles with imagination and creative fire. Includes a haunting spare version of "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui!", "Hein?", and "Mae". Se O Caso E Chorar has a number of tracks with a samba sound at the base – but there's more than enough fantastic material to keep the record fresh, and Tom's writing is as great as ever. There's a vocal group that sings with Ze on many of the tracks on the record – but they also seem to sometimes act as a Greek chorus, in response to breakaway vocal passages that are dominated by Ze. Includes the excellent baroque funky number "Dor E Dor", plus the tracks "Sonho Colorido De Um Pintor", "A Baba", "O Sandalo", "A Briga Do Edificio Italia Com O Hilton Hotel", and "Happy End".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy
We've always loved the music of Paula Morelenbaum, but this time around she's really got something special going on – thanks to keyboards and vocals from the legendary Joao Donato! Most of the tunes in the set are Donato numbers – themselves already a treat, but given a little ... CD
Paulinho Da Viola (1981)
Warner (Brazil), 1981. New Copy
Wonderfully warm work from Paulinho Da Viola – an overlooked gem from the early 80s, and a set that bristles with all the classic energy of his music from the decade before! The overall sound is strongly acoustic – loads of great percussion underneath the guitar and vocals, with only a ... CD
Prisma Luminoso
Warner (Brazil), 1983. New Copy
A record that acts just like its title – as the set really helps focus the brilliance of Paulinho Da Viola into bright rays of color – showing different tones and feelings with each new tune on the set! By that, we don't mean that the album's schizophrenic – just that it's got a ... CD
Zeze Motta
Warner/Discobertas (Brazil), 1978. New Copy
A 70s classic from Zeze Motta – served up with a strong sense of presence in the vocals, but done with lots of cool compelling twists and turns in the arrangements! At times, there's a slight echo of new wave modes, but other points have a fuller approach to MPB – and a few other tunes ... CD
A Toda Hora Rola Uma Estoria
Warner (Brazil), 1982. New Copy
One of those great records where Paulinho Da Viola wonderfully demonstrates why he's so different than some of his contemporaries – a samba singer at heart, but also a poet with a depth that goes way beyond the usual! The tunes here have a simple sort of start, but often unfold with a ... CD
Bossa Rosa De Sonia
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1967. New Copy
A rare 60s album by the lovely Sonia Rosa – lots of sweet bossa tunes, handled with a very light touch! The set's got Rosa singing and playing acoustic guitar in front of larger backings by Chiquinho Moraes – nice and jazzy on most of the tracks, with a sound that pushes Rosa past the ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1973. New Copy
A Brazilian underground classic from the early 70s – mindblowing work that mixes heavy percussion with lots of guitar – in a style that's samba soul one minute, but heavier rock the next! There's a bit of a Jorge Ben influence going on at times – particularly in the way the ... CD
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1967. New Copy
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD
Our Kind Of Bossa
Six Degrees, 2014. New Copy
Bossacucanova serve up the kind of bossa they do best – a sweet mix of classic instrumentation and contemporary touches – but they also work here with some great help from a rich array of guest artists, all of whom really help the trio to deepen their sound! The vocalists are ... CD
