LP, Vinyl record album

One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the magic of Jobim's wonderful compositions, but gives them a slightly more fluid feel too – in a way that's somewhat more sophisticated than the sound of Jobim's previous CTI outings – Tide and Wave. Other players on the album include Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, and Airto on percussion – and there's a great mix of Brazilian and American styles on the set – electric, sinister, breezy, and always wonderful! Includes the titles "Sabia", "God & The Devil In The Land Of The Sun", "Children's Games", "Stone Flower", "Brazil", "Tereza My Love", and "Choro".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great!

Whatmusic (UK), New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A deeply jazzy album from Brazil – one of the few rare records cut by the combo of Edison Machado, one of Brazil's greatest drummers of the 60s! The set has a sound that's quite different from Machado's earlier work – a fusion of post-bossa and post-Coltrane styles that comes off with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Louvacao
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
