The first album in years from this favorite Brazilian funk combo – and less of a straight album than a collection of different recordings from all the time we haven't heard from them! Funk Como Le Gusta are tighter than ever – still strongly inspired by American funk and soul, and able to fuse it into a groove that's slightly contemporary – but way better than the usual mainstream R&B from Brazil! There's a lean quality here on most of the tracks – instrumentation that's still mostly live, and definitely linked to the contemporary deep funk underground at points – while getting even bolder production at others. Titles include "Balacobaco", "Sweet Ronie Song", "Putz", "Muchacha Fantastica", "Ire", and "Preludio Do Sol".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Universal (Brazil), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 20CDs
Vinicius De Moraes is an artist with the soul of a poet, but a hell of a recording career too – one that spans the earliest years of bossa nova, which he helped to create – and runs through some tremendous collaborations in the 60s and 70s as well! This wonderful set brings together ... CD
Muitos Carnavais
Philips/Polygram (Brazil), 1977. New Copy
Lively album that mixes Caetano's rich songwriting style with a hard percussive base, which gives the tracks a fast jumpy feel, and gives even more power to Caetano's strong voice. There's little psychedelic bits, with good guitars that get noisy in parts, but there's also a warm MPB feel to the ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. New Copy
A great new version of this excellent live set from 1974 – one that adds 5 extra tracks to a record that's already one of Gilberto Gil's best! Gilberto is playing here in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – ... CD
Construcao
Philips (Brazil), 1972. New Copy
If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, ... CD
Daybreak/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Sweet keyboard genius from the legendary Manfredo Fest – an early 70s effort that's got a really wonderful groove! The style here is a bit like some of the best CTI recordings during their early years with A&M – kind of an update of 60s bossa that features full, warm, jazzy ... CD
Coracoes Futuristas
EMI/Bomba (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An amazing tribute not just to the rich imagination of the young Egberto Gismonti – but also to the vivid sound of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album leaps past any easy definitions – as bits of jazz, MPB, serious scoring, folkloric styles, and other elements come into play – ... CD
Philips/Bomba (Japan), 1973. New Copy
Quite possibly the clearest moment of genius ever from the legendary Hermeto Pascoal – a tremendous album that helped reshape instrumental Brazilian music for many years to come! At one level, the record shares a sound with some of the fuller, richer orchestrations going on in the post-bossa ... 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
Os Sambeatles
Fermata/Braz Bossa Roots (Brazil), 1966. New Copy
A bossa nova take on The Beatles – served up with plenty of great keyboard work from the legendary Manfredo Fest! Fest is well know to bossa fans for his killer combo sides of the 60s – and although this album's a much more obscure effort, it follows in a very similar vein – ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1972. New Copy
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and ... CD
13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD
