Compelling work from Egberto Gismonti – working here in a largely electronic basis, and using a host of keyboards to weave complicated soundscapes that are a great extension of his arrangements from the early and mid 70s! By that, we mean the sound is nicely complicated at points, yet still soars with a heck of a lot of spirit – that unique blend of Brazilian roots, jazz fusion, and more complicated expressive modes that made Gismonti one of the best talents of his generation on the Brazilian scene! The production comes through really well for the keyboards – none of those too-tinny styles that could mar American efforts like this of the time – and titles include "Palacio De Espelhos", "Sagracao", "Assum", "Fado", "Carnaval De Rua", "2 Violes", and "Para John E Paco".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Elenco/Think (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Incredible early work from Egberto Gismonti – very different than his avant compositions of recent years, or his spare instrumental work for ECM! This set's got Gismonti stepping off the bossa years with acoustic guitar in the lead, but working with these soaring larger arrangements that are ... CD
EMI/Bomba (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Stunning early work from Egberto Gismonti – a really complex little record, and quite different than some of his better-known work as a spare acoustic soloist! Gismonti here is at the helm of a rich array of sounds – at one level, a soulful approach to MPB that rivals the best of ... CD
Coracoes Futuristas
EMI/Bomba (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing tribute not just to the rich imagination of the young Egberto Gismonti – but also to the vivid sound of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album leaps past any easy definitions – as bits of jazz, MPB, serious scoring, folkloric styles, and other elements come into play – ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1966. New Copy
A really beautiful early album from Claudette Soares – one that's maybe a bit more collaborative and experimental than most of her other work! The set features Soares singing alongside a young Taiguara – an artist you might know best for his later, more experimental work – but ... CD
Vamos Pro Mundo
Continental/Bomba (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Incredibly beautiful work from Os Novos Baianos – a record that has the band shaking off some of the rougher edges of earlier records, but still sounding plenty darn great – and without any of the too-smooth styles of later years! There's some really tremendous work here on a variety ... 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
Philips/Bomba (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Quite possibly the clearest moment of genius ever from the legendary Hermeto Pascoal – a tremendous album that helped reshape instrumental Brazilian music for many years to come! At one level, the record shares a sound with some of the fuller, richer orchestrations going on in the post-bossa ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano ... CD
Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy
A holy grail! This is one of Marcos Valle's best-ever albums – and it's certainly the one to best realize the larger scope he was heading for in the years after the bossa – that sublime mix of jazz and more expansive arrangements – a perfect fit for the growing sophistication of ... CD
Odeon/Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy
Some of the most brilliantly baroque work ever recorded by Marcos Valle – an obscure 1970 album that collects together tunes from a few of his odd soundtrack experiments of the late 60s, plus a few others that are in a very similar vein! Marcos is really going over the top here – ... CD
Odeon/El (UK), 1963. New Copy
One of Joao Gilberto's first-ever albums – filled with incredibly beautiful bossa material that captures the vocals and guitar of Gilberto at their fragile early best – backed by sublime arrangements from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley! The setting is perfect, and the sound ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 12 CDs
A fantastic collection of work from Elza Soares – one of Brazil's grooviest singers in the 60s, and an artist who sounded even better in the 70s! The set brings together 22 of Elza's classic albums for EMI/Odeon – 21of them recorded between the years 1960 and 1977, plus one more from ... CD
