Lo Borges looks surprisingly youthful in the artwork for this CD – and his music sounds the same – every bit as fresh and personal as when he first sprang onto the scene with Milton Nascimento at the start of the 70s! As with other recent efforts, the songwriting is superb – as thoughtful as ever, and put together with a gentle sort of cohesion that really makes the whole thing shine – amazingly subtle, and still some of the most naturalistic material you'll ever hear from Brazil! Production is very much up to the task, with a timeless quality that makes the record feel like some of Borges' best material from decades past. Titles include "Antes Do Sol", "On Venus", "De Mais Ninguem", "Xanana", "Da Nossa Criacao", "Quem Me Chama", and "Cancao Mais Alem".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A Via Lactea
EMI (Japan), 1979. New Copy
An oft-overlooked gem by the great Lo Borges – known to many for his stunning work with Milton Nasicmento in the early 70s, and still sounding wonderful here in the early 80s! Despite the passage of time, the feel of this one's very similar to Lo's earlier albums – a brilliant mix of ... CD

Caetano Veloso looks like a bit of an old geezer on the back cover of this live set – but damn if he isn't still one of the most exciting talents in the world, even alongside most of the contemporary generation too! The performance is a concert that's very much in the spirit of the studio ... CD

Carta De Amor Vol 1
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 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

The first three solo albums from Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee – all work that really follows in a great vibe from her key contributions to the Tropicalia scene! Build Up has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after ... CD

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

Viva Voz
EMI/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy
A sweet groover from 70s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this harmony group – a male/female sextet that mixes warm vocals with lively samba rhythms! The approach is fantastic, and unique – different than the breezier feel of bossa nova harmony groups, and with some ... CD

Muita Zorra!
Philips/Forma (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Funky funky samba! Trio Mocoto are a unique group in Brazilian music. They're best known as the backing group for Jorge Ben during some of his mid 70s Africanist recordings, but they've also cut a rare few recordings on their own – including this excellent gem from 1971! The album's got a ... CD

Damn – what a great album! This is Joyce's second solo album – and it's a landmark in Brazilian music, stretching way past the bossa styles of her first release, into a groove that's free, jazzy, and open-ended, a real shift towards the genius of her work in the 70s and 80s. ... CD

Cheganca
Verve/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Bossa nova meets organ jazz – a real classic from the great Walter Wanderley, recorded right on the heels of his famous Rain Forest album for Verve! This set's in a very similar format to that one – core trio grooving with organ, bass, and drums – sometimes augmented with added ... CD
