Pure magic from the young Egberto Gismonti – a sublime early record for Odeon in Brazil, and worlds different from his later fame on ECM! The album's got a great sense of depth – tunes that begin with Gismonti's personal vocals and guitar, but which quickly move into offbeat arrangements that are as inventive as they are ambitious! The vibe is very similar to his classic album from 1973 – Arvore – and is colored with the sort of soul and vibrant energy that you'd also hear in Milton Nascimento's best work of the time – and that of the whole Minas Gerais gernation. Gismonti plays a fair bit of piano – even some Fender Rhodes, which is great – and Lindolfo Gaya helped with arrangements, which gives the whole thing that sweeping, majestic feel of the best EMI/Odeon sides from this time in Brazil. Titles include "Janela De Ouro", "Vila Rica 1720", "Eterna", "Ano Zero", "Prum Samba", "Aqua & Vinho", "Mule Rendeira", and "Volante".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Philips/Think (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Very groovy work from the lovely Claudette Soares! Claudette was one of Brazil's best pop singers of the late 60s – and although she could be said to work in the bossa/samba mode, her records also have a lot of touches from other global pop influences, especially the Brit Easy and French pop ... CD

The title is perfect for the sound of this early set from Luiz Henrique – as the music is definitely the modern bossa promised in the title, and almost even groovier than some of Henrique's later American work for Verve! Luiz sings and plays guitar throughout – and often hits this ... CD

Elektra/Bomba (Japan), 1979. New Copy
A stunning live recording from Elis Regina – one of the last few records she cut during her short time on this planet – and one of the best as well! The album's got a jazzy fire that's missing from some of Regina's other material of the time – and Elis sings with a group that ... CD

Jongo Trio (1972)
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy
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 ... CD

Batukfreak
Mr Bongo (UK), 2014. New Copy
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 ... CD
