Alaide CostaJoia Moderna (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Sony (Brazil), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99
Beautiful early work from Alaide Costa – served up in that wonderful mix of jazz, samba, and bossa that makes her 60s recordings so great! There's a nice current of melancholy to the music at times – one that almost links Costa to an earlier generations of singers – but many ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gal CostaAquele Frevo Axe ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1998. New Copy ... $9.99
Gal Costa gets some great help here from Celso Fonseca – who produced the album, and gives Costa a fresh sound that makes the album one of her best from the 90s! The music's a bit in Fonseca's own mode on his recordings – currents of bossa that bring a classic feel at times, but also ... read more CD

Gal CostaCantar (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1974. Used ... $13.99
A real moment of beauty from Gal Costa in the 70s – a set that moves away from her more experimental music of the Tropicalia generation, and yields a more personal approach overall – one that's quite similar to the best from Caetano Veloso at the time! As with Caetano during this shift ... read more CD

Gal CostaGal (1969) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Heady heady work from the legendary Gal Costa – caught here right at her early best, smack dab in the middle of the Tropicalia years! The album's one of Gal's legendary collaborations with arranger Rogerio Duprat – and it's very much in the spirit of her other incredible session from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most mindblowing albums ever recorded – anywhere, anytime!

Gal CostaIndia ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio ... read more CD

Teresa CristinaTeresa Cristina Canta Cartola (CD/DVD) ... CD
Nonesuch, 2016. Used CD & DVD ... $6.99
The music of Cartola, beautifully re-presented here by Teresa Cristina – who takes the songs, and instantly makes them her own! Cristina's vocal approach – light and lovely – is quite different from the deeper sound of Cartola – but the music has an equally rich spirit, ... read more CD

Martinho Da VilaDe Bem Com A Vida ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Instantly timeless work from Martinho Da Vila – a set that's every bit as powerful as his classic albums from the 70s – and done with an even more personal sound! Martinho first rose to fame at a time when there was a big wave of new samba recordings in Brazil – a mode that still ... read more CD

✨✧ Wilson Das NevesSamba-Tropi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the ... read more CD

Paulinho Da ViolaEu Canto Samba ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
Slight hints of gray mark the hair of Paulinho Da Viola on the cover – and they also underlie the maturity in the music that makes this set so great! Paulinho first gave us some excellent samba sounds in the 70s – but at the end of the following decade, he's still a master of care and ... read more CD

✨✧ Moleque De RuaMoleque De Rua ... CD
Sony (Brazil), Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
Tight stuff! These guys mix together samba grooves, funk instrumentation, and a collective style of performance that reminds us of African groups of the 70s or Troublefunk's GoGo work of the early 80s. Not that the music sounds like any of those references, though – because it's a blend of ... read more CD

Ubatuqui (Spain), 1964. Used ... $11.99
Snapping percussion, sweet jazzy organ, and other great instrumentation – all dancing wonderfully together in this early bossa jazz set from Eumir Deodato! The album's got a simple brilliance that's totally great – and a sense of color, tone, and timing that really shows Deodato's ... read more CD

Eumir DeodatoOs Catedraticos 73 ... CD
Ubatuqui (Spain), 1973. Used ... $14.99
A fantastic Deodato album from 1973! Although this was recorded at the same time as his American releases on CTI, the album has much more of the flavor of his tighter, jazzier, earlier work – with loads of funky keyboards, and lots of shorter tracks that drive along nicely with interplay ... read more CD

✨✧ DjavanDjavan ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Sublime early work from Djavan – a bit of jazz, a bit of samba, and a bit of soul – all wrapped together in wonderfully warm arrangements! The sound here is sophisticated without being sleepy, and there's still a lightness to Djavan's music at this point – a style that manages to ... read more CD

DjavanLilas ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
The cover definitely reflects that 80s origin of the album – but as usual with Djavan, there's a lot more depth here going on than most of his contemporaries ever had to offer! The singer's less a Brazilian artist than a global soul star – singing in Portuguese, but with a quality that ... read more CD

DjavanVidas Pra Contar ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
If there's one rule about Brazilian music that seems truer and truer over the years – it's that greats from the 70s never seem to flag at all – and instead just keep getting better and better as time goes on! This album from Djavan is great proof of that rule – as the singer has ... read more CD
