Warm bossa grooves – and the second album by Orlandivo, billed here on the cover as Orlann Divo! The album's a great batch of instrumentals – jazzy, with a mix of percussion, bass, and organ that's quite different from the usual bossa album of its type – much more expansive, and much more chance-taking. The use of organ is incredible – really weird at times, pushing the sonic qualities of the instrument in ways that you'd never hear on a Walter Wanderley album from the same time – and the nature of the tunes is great too, and really pushes past the usual batch of bossa covers and standards to come up with some great off-kilter styles. Features work by Ed Lincoln, Rubens Bassini, and Waltel Branco – and titles include "Samba No Japao", "Zezinho", "Amor Quadradinho", "Afim De Voce", "Vira Lata", "Somos Tres", "Saudade Em Seu Lugar", "Faz De Conta", and "Brincando De Samba".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Polydor, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly the last truly sublime album ever recorded by Os Mutantes – a set that's a bit more rock-oriented then their first few, but still pretty revolutionary overall! The group have expanded to a quintet at this point, but haven't yet falling into the guitar-heavy groove of later ... LP, Vinyl record album
Obras
Whatmusic (UK), New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A deeply jazzy album from Brazil – one of the few rare records cut by the combo of Edison Machado, one of Brazil's greatest drummers of the 60s! The set has a sound that's quite different from Machado's earlier work – a fusion of post-bossa and post-Coltrane styles that comes off with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luaka Bop, 1992. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A great return for the legendary Tom Ze – an artist who'd been brought back to prominence via the efforts of a Luaka Bop compilation – then given this great chance to record for the label on his own! The set's a great return to form for Ze – who sprung from this moment into a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luaka Bop, 1989. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The first-ever record in the Luaka Bop legacy – a massive collection of Brazilian grooves that still serves as one of the best introductions to the music we can think of! Most of the artists here are the bigger names of the MPB generation of the 70s – but many are still very under-repre ... LP, Vinyl record album
Astrud Gilberto Album
Verve (Germany), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums of the 60s – a classic session produced for Verve by Creed Taylor, and featuring sweet gentle arrangements from Marty Paich, co-arranged with Antonio Carlos Jobim, who also plays guitar on the session next to the piano of Joao Donato! That's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Louvacao
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious ... LP, Vinyl record album
