A massive collection of work from the lovely Wanderlea – all her key albums from the 70s, presented with bonus tracks too – in a box that also contains a full extra CD of rare material as well! Wanderlea's got a style that's maybe a bit more sweet than some of the usual Brazilian singers we stock – not really commercial, at least not from an American 70s pop perspective – but a bit more towards the Brazilian mainstream of the period. Yet there's still a nice edge here – kind of a female pop evolution from the EMI/Odeon style of the start of the decade – with arrangements that still sound refreshing, and songs written by some of the better talents of her generation – including Egberto Gismonti, Gonzaguinha, Caetano Veloso, Joyce, Joao Donato, and Roberto and Erasmo Carlos. The box is a wonderful introduction to her work – and features the full albums Maravilhosa, Feito Gente, Vamos Que Eu Ja Vou, Mais Que A Paixao, and Wanderlea – plus the especially nice Raridades CD – which brings together unusual singles and odd recordings!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
Masterplay Goes To New York
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

Discobertas (Brazil), 1950s. New Copy 3 CDs

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
Carmo
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
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
Milagre
Zoho, 2013. New Copy
Maucha sings and Helio plays – in a sweet set that makes for a wonderfully warm and stripped down batch of Brazilian vocals! The album's got a sound that's a bit different than the usual bossa outing – given Helio's rich touch on the piano, which isn't afraid to go for bolder notes at ... CD
Build Up
Philips/El (UK), 1970. New Copy
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the ... CD
