A really joyous musical celebration – filled with the kind of festive energy that May Day brings in other scenes around the world! The crow's enthusiasm is right up front in the mix – which seems to spur on even bolder performances from the artists than we're used to hearing on records from around this time – tremendous work that really tops their studio sides from the same period, with runaway energy that we never would have expected! Gal Costa really shines on the cuts "Balance" and "Aquarela Do Brasil" – and other tracks include "Imbalanca" and "Coisa Mais Maior De Grande" by Gonzaguinha, "Alguem Me Avisou" and "Sorriso Negro" by Dona Ivone Lara, "A Chuva Cai" and "Andance" by Beth Carvalho, and "Asa Branca" and "Luar Do Sertao" by Luiz Gonzaga.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy
An incredible bit of soundtrack work by Gilberto Gil – and one of his best albums! The record was originally recorded to accompany the work of director Rogerio Szanzerla, and it's a wonderful mix of samba, jazz, and post-Tropicalia psychedelia – all recorded in a warm intimate style ... 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
Anos 50 (3CD set)
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
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
Discobertas (Brazil), 2012. New Copy
The sound of The Beatles, completely re-imagined by a host of hip acts from Brazil – a stunning lineup that includes some under-discovered talents from the younger generation, plus a few key artists from earlier years as well! As you'd guess from the "69" in the title, most of the ... CD
Our Kind Of Bossa
Six Degrees, 2014. New Copy
Bossacucanova serve up the kind of bossa they do best – a sweet mix of classic instrumentation and contemporary touches – but they also work here with some great help from a rich array of guest artists, all of whom really help the trio to deepen their sound! The vocalists are ... CD
