Amazing bossa jazz from Brazilian tenor saxophonist Juarez – a record that moves and grooves with an even harder edge than any American session of the type from the time – with lots of raw percussion that sounds really great next to the soulful tenor! The album's quite early in the years for bossa jazz – and has a wonderfully fluid, wonderfully clear sort of groove – one that's got piano, bass, drums, and loads of great percussion on the bottom – and these freewheeling tenor lines from Juarez that are filled with soul, swing, and imagination! There's way more here than just a soloist blowing lines over rhythms of familiar standards – and the set features titles that include "Julgamento", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Suplica", "I'll Get By", "Al Di La", "Indiscretion", and "O Menino Desce O Morro".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Masterplay/Discobertas (Brazil), 1963. New Copy
Killer bossa jazz from tenor saxophonist Juarez – billed as a New York record on the cover, but a real Brazilian cooker all the way through! The only "New York" aspect of the set seems to be the American tunes chosen for the date – which are then recast with some sweet bossa ... CD
Orquestra Imperial Ao Vivo
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
Beautiful live work from this totally great Brazilian collective – a group who's large enough to win the Orquesta in their name, but who work together with a cohesiveness that's more in a small group mode! The vocals alone are totally great – sung in a shifting lineup that includes ... CD
Joao Gilberto (1973)
Polygram (Brazil), 1973. New Copy
One of the most heavenly albums ever recorded – a sublime post-60s session by Joao Gilberto, one with even more fluid grace than his original bossa nova classics! The setting here is extremely spare – Joao on vocals and acoustic guitar, backed by only a slight bit of percussion – ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. New Copy
A great new version of this excellent live set from 1974 – one that adds 5 extra tracks to a record that's already one of Gilberto Gil's best! Gilberto is playing here in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – ... CD

Discobertas (Brazil), 1950s. New Copy 3 CDs
A great collection of vintage work from Brazilian singer Moreira Da Silva – including a fair bit of tracks originally only issued as 78rpm singles! The collection features two CDs' worth of material from 78s, plus the full album O Tal from later in the decade – but even that is ... CD
Festa Do Chorinho Vol 1
Discobertas (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
A great revival of older choro modes – played in a style that's quite faithful to the original, and which is recorded in a spare, simple style that's mighty nice! The set's oddly missing notes on the musicians, but instrumentation includes lots of percussion on tamborim, sweet lyrical lines ... CD
Festa Do Chorinho Vol 2
Discobertas (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
A great revival of older choro modes – played in a style that's quite faithful to the original, and which is recorded in a spare, simple style that's mighty nice! The set's oddly missing notes on the musicians, but instrumentation includes lots of percussion on tamborim, sweet lyrical lines ... CD
Discos Drink/Discobertas (Brazil), 1960s. New Copy 7 CDs
Totally cool, totally wonderful – and a massive set of hardly-heard work from Brazilian keyboardist Djalma Ferreira! Djalma's a name that's not nearly as well-known in the states as Walter Wanderley – but he got his start well before Walter, working in some 50s modes that were mighty ... CD
Tapecar/Discobertas (Brazil), 1974. New Copy
Standout samba from Elza Soares – a cracker of an album from the mid 70s, and exactly the best sort of record to get you started appreciating her talents! Elza's got a great blend here – some of the soulful elements of her samba contemporaries, mixed with a bit of the fullness of ... CD
Tapecar/Discobertas (Brazil), 1977. New Copy
One of the best albums we've ever heard from Brazilian singer Elza Soares – a great blend of rootsy samba and jazzy 70s electric arrangements, handled in a style that's warm and bubbling, and which really brings a different sound to Elza! Keyboards and arrangements are handled by Gilson ... CD
O Terco (1970)
Forma/Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy
The first album we've ever seen from O Terco – a set done for the legendary Forma label, with sublime arrangements from Arthur Verocai! The record's got a wicked blend of late 60s psych and some of the groovier styles of Brazilian music at the time – almost as if a truck full of ... CD
ABC/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy
A gem of a record from the early 60s – a freewheeling set of bossa jazz, played by the combo of tenor saxophonist Juarez! There's a fluid, open groove to the record that's mighty nice – really romping rhythms that set fire to the tenor of Juarez right from the start – as he moves ... CD
