The stuff of legend – and one of the greatest albums ever from Brazil's Tamba Trio! The group have a sound here that goes way beyond standard bossa jazz – in that amidst the piano, bass, and drums, the trio also harmonize vocally too – swirling together the lyrics, which are often wordless, in these cool jazz riffs that are really amazing – soaring out above the instrumentation, to create a whole new layer of grooves! Arrangements are by the group's pianist, Luiz Eca – who really reaches a high point in his musical development here – and titles include the classics "Boranda", "Barumba", and "Consalacao" – plus "Yansa", "Moto Continuo", "Nuvens", and "Pregao".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tamba Trio (1975)
RCA (UK), 1975. New Copy
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of ... CD

Philips/El (Brazil), 1962/1963/1964/1966. New Copy
Nearly 3 albums' worth of music from the legendary Tamba Trio – one of the grooviest groups in the 60s bossa years in Brazil! The trio are quite unique – in that they not only play upbeat bossa rhythms, but also harmonize along with their grooves – in a soaringly sublime quality ... CD

Stillness
A&M/Soul Jazz (UK), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
A real classic from Sergio Mendes – probably most famous for its funky bits! The record pushes past the formula of the earlier Brasil 66 albums, and goes for a more sophisticated approach that adds in some sweet electric moments, more complicated grooves, and an overall sound that's even ... CD

Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... 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

Nara Leao (1968)
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... 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

Os Gatos
Philips (Japan), 1964. New Copy
An album of incomparable beauty – one of the two rare albums cut by this legendary group during the 60s, and a bossa nova masterpiece all the way through! The work is guided by a young Deodato – who's moving here into much more complicated territory than his early organ jazz records ... CD

Gal (1969)
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from ... CD

Big Ben
Philips (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in ... CD

Solitude On Guitar
Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Beautifully spare work from guitarist Baden Powell – and a record that certainly lives up to its title! Baden's playing in a mostly unaccompanied setting for the session – working through some tunes that are markedly gentler than his bossa era numbers, but which demonstrate an amazing ... CD
