Joyce & Kenny WernerPoesia ... CD
Pirouet (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
One of the mellowest, moodiest albums we've ever heard from the lovely Joyce – a spare set of duets with pianist Kenny Werner, done in a style that definitely reflects the poetry promised in the title! The album's almost more of a jazz vocal setting than Joyce's usual bossa and more breezy ... read more CD

✨✧ Joyce, Nana Vasconcelos, & Mauricio MaestroVisions Of Dawn – The Paris 1976 Project (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
An amazing little record – a 70s session that we'd easily rank right up there with the best recordings ever from Joyce, but one that's only being issued here for the first time ever! The sound is brilliant – that beautiful mix of strong and sweet that you'll always find when Joyce is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Juarez E Seu ConjuntoO Inimitavel Juarez ... CD
Masterplay/Discobertas (Brazil), 1962. New Copy ... $15.99
Amazing bossa jazz from Brazilian tenor saxophonist Juarez – a record that moves and grooves with an even harder edge than any American session of the type from the time – with lots of raw percussion that sounds really great next to the soulful tenor! The album's quite early in the ... read more CD

KassinSonhando Devagar (with download) ... LP
20/20/20, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 19.99
Really wonderful work from Alexandre Kassin – easily one of the most important contemporary figures in Brazilian music of the past decade or two! Kassin's best known on these shores for his work with Moreno Veloso and Domenico – but he's also had a hand in countless collaborations with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Le Trio CamaraLe Trio Camara ... CD
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Bossa jazz from the French scene of the 60s – an ultra-hip album issued on the legendary Saravah Records label – and one that's one of the best illustrations of the label's way of blending together jazz and other global styles! The group here is a trio, with Fernando Martins on some ... read more CD

Nara LeaoCom Acucar Com Afeto ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Lovely stuff! This record's a stunning batch of light tracks – most with a jazzy samba or late bossa sound – and the kind of sparkling production that Nara used a lot more later in the decade. Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the ... read more CD

Nara LeaoMeu Primeiro Amor ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Light and lovely tunes from Nara Leao – a sweet mid 70s session that's filled with great vocals and a fair bit of acoustic guitar! The sound here isn't nearly as dark as Leao's work of the 60s – and even as some of her albums from a few years before – but the record's still rich ... read more CD

✨✧ Nara LeaoNara (1964) ... CD
Elenco (Brazil), 1964. Used ... $7.99
Incredible early bossa material from one of Brazil's greatest singers! The record is lively, yet sophisticated – with strong arrangements by Gaya and Moacir Santos, and a vocal approach by Nana that really moves past the sweeter sound of other bossa singers – into a mode that's rich ... read more CD

Nara LeaoNara Leao (1968) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius – a lost Nara Leao album from the late 60s, and a key piece in the puzzle of late 60s Tropicalia – a set we'd place right next to equally important records by Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, and Os Mutantes! Although Leao always gets cited as one of the more revolutionary ... read more CD

Anilza Leoni/Sambalanca TrioFesta Do Balamba/Samblues ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A totally great cut from Anilza Leoni – a track that has this jazzy Hammond over fast-stepping drums – while Anizla sings in a cool scatting style over the top! The track's very unusual – a lot different than the usual bossa groover, but equally great! "Samblues" is a ... (Funky 45's, Brazil) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ivan LinsAmerica Brasil Vol 1 ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the strongest, most positive albums that Ivan Lins has recorded in years – a set that almost has the feel of some of his biggest albums from the 80s, a time when Lins was riding high on a big wave of international acclaim! The production is a bit more top-shelf than other recent ... read more CD

✨✧ Ivan LinsAwa Yio ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $14.99
A record cut at a time when Brazilian singer Ivan Lins was enjoying a great wave of international fame – a moment that resulted in music that almost had him reaching out as a majestic singer, able to inspire the whole world at once, rather than just the mainstream audiences back home in ... read more CD

Ivan LinsChama Acesa ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A great album from one of Ivan Lins' best periods – a great shift in his music, with a sound that's made the album one of his all-time classics! The set has him adapting more of a jazzy sound than on earlier records – dropping some of the baroque arrangements for a sound that's leaner, ... read more CD

Ivan LinsLove Dance ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $14.99
A record with a cheesy title and cover, but with a sound that's completely sublime – that transcendent vocal approach and incredible songwriting that makes just about any record by Ivan Lins a real treasure! The set's not as experimental as his earliest work, but it's got a rock-solid sound ... read more CD

Ivan LinsModo Livre ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime early work from Ivan Lins – exactly the kind of album that made him one of the global breakout talents from Brazil in the 70s – and a record that you can still pick up all these many years later, and find the same sort of genius! Arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – who ... read more CD

Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have ... read more CD

Jards MacaleContrastes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A straighter album than some of the early experimental work of Jards Macale – but maybe a greater album as well – and one that really shows the singer coming into his own, and finding a way to nestle his fresh ideas within the best settings of 70s MPB! The shift's a bit like the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Edison MachadoEdison Machado e Samba Novo ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Brazil's best jazz sessions of the 60s – and one of those records that shows that although Verve and other US labels could record their own version of bossa nova, the style still always sounded best when coming from Brazil! Drummer Edison Machado really nocks it out of the park here ... read more CD
