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
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

Marina MachadoTempo Quente ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2008. Used ... $6.99
A great debut from Maria Machado – a set that's produced by Milton Nascimento, but with a vibe that's a lot fresher than most of his own recent work! At some level, Maria's a contemporary bossa singer – but at another, she's working with a wide palette of sounds and colors – bits ... read more CD

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1970) ... CD
Polydor/Oficial Arquivos, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul ... read more CD

Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.98
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 – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out (UK), 2002. Very Good ... $1.99
An ambitious title for this one – but it more than lives up to the name! Mamond is a huge collective of Brazilian players working with British producer Roc Hunter in Rio-based studios. Roc brings the tight dancefloor sound of the London scene to the rich vocal and instrumental talents of ... (New Grooves, Brazil) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa nova from Herbie Mann – one of our favorite albums ever from the famous flute player – cut for United Artists, and a one-off session that's arguably better than most of his Atlantic work of the time!
