Maybe the greatest album we've ever heard from Lucas Santtana – and that's saying a lot, given that we've been loving his music for years! There's a depth, a richness here that we haven't heard from Lucas in a long time – a quality that has him moving past just the kind of bright new energy he brought to MPB over a decade ago – into a realm that rivals the most mature work of older giants like Caetano Veloso or Gilberto Gil! Instrumentation is often fresh and complicated, yet never in a way that's ever too obtuse – and the songwriting has a punch that goes even beyond the boundaries of language – an inherent universality that's a real surprise. Titles include "Musico", "Jogos Madrugais", "E Sempre Bom Se Lembrar", "Tanto Faz", "Se Pa Ska SP", and "Dia De Furar Onda No Mar".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mais Um Discos (UK), 2009. New Copy Gatefold
Another bold leap forward for Lucas Santtana – a Brazilian artist who really blows our mind with each new release! It's been a few years since we last heard from Lucas, but it's clear he's been doing plenty during the time – coming up with fresh new ideas, working on some English-based ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
A really excellent little compilation – one filled with great sounds from the Brazilian underground, and a really rich blend of music that goes way beyond the straighter booty-shaking beats you'll find on other collections of this nature! The music here is often much deeper than some of the ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2013. New Copy Gatefold
A sweet bit of Brazilian experimentation that recalls all the inventive spirit of the work of Caetano Veloso and the Tropicalia generation – put together with lots of great twists and turns, and a spirit that's both playful yet straightforward as well! These guys mix things up as much as the ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1973. New Copy
A Brazilian underground classic from the early 70s – mindblowing work that mixes heavy percussion with lots of guitar – in a style that's samba soul one minute, but heavier rock the next! There's a bit of a Jorge Ben influence going on at times – particularly in the way the ... 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
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – ... CD
Philips/Universal Sound (UK), 1964. New Copy
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 ... CD
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1967. New Copy
A brilliant early moment for the young Gilberto Gil – a set recorded right before his jump into the Tropicalia movement, but with a sound that's already pretty darn unique! The style here has Gilberto singing upfront and playing acoustic guitar – in a mode that's certainly rooted in ... CD
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful ... CD
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy
A landmark in rare Cali soul – and quite possibly the greatest moment ever from the legendary Mike James Kirkland! The set's got a vibe that grabs you right from the very first note – a blend of funky rhythms and more righteous moments that are totally outta site – a careful ... CD
