A really obscure little set from late 50s Brazil – and a record that's a key link between jazz and bossa nova! Singer Paulinho's got a style that's definitely rooted in jazz – as is the Pacifico Mascarenhas combo, which uses great piano lines to underscore the light rhythms on drums and percussion – but there's also an early bossa vibe going on here – one that borrows a bit from Latin piano combos from New York and Havana, but tunes them down and mellows them out – creating a sense of spaciousness that's perfect for the vocals. Paulinho's also got this light style that's more bossa than most Brazilian singers of the time – and titles include "Foi Assim", "Em Teus Bracos", "Vieram Me Contar", "Pam Pam Pam", "Por Favor Amor", and "Juras De Amor".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

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

Philips/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Compelling work from this overlooked Brazilian singer of the 70s – an artist who's got a vibe that's quite different than most other material we've heard from that scene at the time – especially more mainstream MPB! Luiza's got this way of running deep with her vocals – a quality ... CD

Zabumbe Bum A
Warner/Bomba (Japan), 1979. New Copy
A gem of an album from Hermeto Pascoal – right up there with 70s classics like A Musica Libre and Slaves Mass – and done with a similar sort of energy that goes way beyond jazz, way beyond conventional Brazilian music – into territory that can only be described as Hermeto-like! ... CD

Brazilian Scene
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Not the entire Brazilian scene – but a sweet little set with some wonderful bossa numbers! About half the record features the initial album recorded by Ze Maria – the great Tudo Azul, a lost bossa organ classic – and a set that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a ... CD

Stillness
A&M (Japan), 1971. New Copy
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

Caetano Veloso (1971)
Philips (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of the greatest albums ever from Caetano Veloso – a rare all-English language set, recorded in London during the years of his exile! The post-Tropicalia set is a fair bit different than any other Veloso album we can think of – not just because of the English language, but also ... CD

Barclay/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s ... CD

Escandalo
Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
Not the Perez Prado of "King Of Mambo" fame, but actually his younger brother Pantaleon Perez Prado – working in a grittier early 70s Latin Funk mode than the more famous elder Perez! This Perez Prado plays bongos and congas – keeping a nicely thumping Latin beat underneath ... CD

Cache/Finders Keepers (UK), 1980s. New Copy
Rare underground sounds from Germany in the 80s – unique 4-track home recordings that are low-fi and fringe-y, but also oddly tuneful and compelling! You can pretty much discard any preconceived notions of what you might expect from 80s underground Germany – there's hardly a strobe-lit ... CD
